Seriously, look in the photos with that CNN piece of the guy there dressed like Indiana Jones, including a brown fedora (!) [click the little button under the photo to go to #2 that has "Indy"). Too funny, huh?  ninja2

That's the new archaeologist uniform.  They figured it could do a good job of disguising how tedious archeology actually is.
  I had a friend who was an archaeologist and he wore a fedora too.  of course he was no where near as cool as Indy....

Looking at the bikinis..especially the yellow one...it took me a moment to figure out what was wrong with that photo.

yeah, me too.  I thought there might be a nip slip or something, then the rest of the photo faded into view....

yeah, the radio station we're stuck with at work played it all day yesterday (and apparently today).  Luckily I was able to put on the OSU game and 'forgot' to change the station back until I 'remembered' to just before I left yesterday.

I caved and bought the HD-DVD add-on for the 360.  Since it now comes with the Season 1 Heroes HDDVD along with the 5 titles I couldn't resist.

that's a regular deal now?  oh so tempting....

It's actually $165 with Heroes, King Kong and remote with free shipping at Buy.com, but it says the deal ends today (11/4/07).  Had I not bought so many new "toys" in the last couple months I would probably jump on it, but games take priority for this season.

yeah, with 400 bucks worth of game buying coming up over the next few weeks this will have to wait.

The whole point is that you're not supposed to see it. smile

Beat the demo and you might have a better idea of what you ran into.

supposedly you can catch a glimpse of it earlier than that around the time you find your first dead teammate, but I never saw anything.

Is this normal for them?

I never order online from GS, so I don't have a clue. On the flip side, they should refund your delivery fee. biggrin

After I wrote that message the first thing I did was shoot off an email to them with that very request or I'd take my business to Best Buy or Circuit City and get the game cheaper from them. Seriously, 9 dollars for shipping - I expect my package the next day.

I played the first two levels of this game at Gamestop this afternoon.

I really enjoyed myself.  The controls take a little getting used to, and the camera isn't perfect all the time in the brief bit I played.  But this is 3-D platforming redefined.  The gameplay mechanics are unique.  The levels varied.  The graphics great.  The sound I'm iffy on, but that's because I was playing it in store.  There's irreverant humor like in Paper Mario.  No loading times to speak of. 

Overall, I'm highly impressed.

Slow day at the Gamestop...

Seeing as how I played for quite a while with no one even telling me to stop or asking to play, yeah.  Very slow.  I probably could have played more if I wanted.

The question now is why didn't you want to play more? slywink

because he had to run home and post here.

The nice thing is that according to the manual the enhancements like Pain I and Pain II don't stack, so if you bought Pain II before buying Pain I you don't have to worry about spending anything to get the first one.

Yeah, to my understanding, the skills don't stack, but if you bought pain II enhancement on fast steel lvl 2, you'll only see it being applied when you are doing lvl 2 fast style, so if you want lvl 1 fast style also increase pain, you need to buy the pain I. 

I haven't go out to the swamp yet, but the temple dist. is huge also, lots of stuff to do.   

Oh, ok I think I understand-so essentially "Level 1 fast style" is simply your first attack in the fast style, and if you chain successfully, "level 2 fast style" is your second attack right? So while the enhancements do not stack, you still get the bonus on each section of your attack?

Thanks for the info-I wish I had more time to play and likely won't untill tomorrow night as we have guests, but this game is just awesome.

that actually makes sense.  it did seem kind of odd that they'd make the enhancements useless that quickly.  I guess you can disregard the PM I sent back to you.

wow, I like how they pretty much put all the stuff out there to say that it's Peter who killed Hiros father and attacked his own mother.  A person with Hiros powers and Nikkis split personality?  definitely bad news.  I have the feeling we'll be seeing Sylar and Peter switching roles over the rest of the season.

I hope Hiro gets back to the present soon- they're spread everyone out a bit too thin so far and it's showing in the storyline.

We are doing the best we can right now with getting updates out to you. We totally understand the frustration but let us get subcriptions working and we can then focus on other matters.
Aye, how can they expect people to subscribe to the game if it's not working properly for those folks to begin with?  saywhat
