Pretty sure this on the PSP, too, if anybody cares.
10322  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Stranglehold on: September 01, 2007, 05:28:23 AM
For the multiplayer it seems all they would have to do is put everybody into slow-mo when somebody uses it, but only the person that used it can move their crosshair at the normal rate and everybody else moves it slower just like their movements. 
10323  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Stuntman: Ignition! on: September 01, 2007, 05:25:28 AM
That would be pretty cool.  They need the chase scene from the original Gone in 60 Seconds.  38 minutes of pure car chase and carnage.  Then you could get Bullit, The French Connection, Ronin...
10324  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist: Labor Day Edition on: August 31, 2007, 02:53:51 PM
Since my 360 is still MIA, I will be busting out the PSP all weekend.  I'm almost done with Daxter and then I will move on to Syphon Filter spiced with some MX vs ATV.  If the desire strikes me (which it probably will) I might also pick up Dead Head Fred since it seems like it might be a good time.  
10325  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Two Worlds Impressions on: August 31, 2007, 02:34:43 PM
Hey, if the 360 version allows me to fully mess with the performance vs graphics I think I would definitely go that route.  It's bound to look and run better than my crappy PC. 
10326  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: skate. on: August 31, 2007, 02:13:41 PM
I have to say, that faceplant in your video looked kind of lame.  I've seen more violent landings from somebody laying down on a couch. 
10327  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Dogs] Thinking about getting a Collie on: August 31, 2007, 09:03:36 AM
My dad has had border collies for his last three dogs (unfortunately the second one was killed) and he absolutely loves them.  They were all trained to be cattle dogs but he doesn't even have cattle anymore.  My stepmom has been using their current one in those dog athletics classes (whatever they're called) and they both enjoy it and do really well.  The dogs have all been very sweet, obedient, kid-friendly and love to chase things (balls, frisbees, whatever).  Their natural herding instinct can make for some funny times when they try herding birds and such. 

I don't know if they would be a very good choice if you don't have a yard, though.  Something to think about.
10328  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Two Worlds Impressions on: August 31, 2007, 08:56:09 AM
I understand the 360 version had some slowdown, less than perfect graphics and whatnot, but compared to running it on an older PC is it really that bad?  For some reason I want to play this game, but if possible I'd prefer to play it on my XBox when it gets back from repair. 
10329  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Mist Trailer on: August 31, 2007, 03:00:24 AM
I would watch that.  And if I was there, I would probably punch that preachy bitch in the face.

Don't forget that it also has double the on-board memory to enable sped up cached loading of games.
10332  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PSP 2000 available for preorder on Amazon on: August 30, 2007, 01:57:09 PM
For anyone that is getting or interested in the new PSP "Slim", IGN has a fairly decent hands-on write up, including some good close-up pictures of the ice-silver model. 
10333  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Why can't they... on: August 30, 2007, 01:31:46 PM
That "giant robot-hucking-cars game" was Slave Zero, and there was also an MMO under development of the name Citizen Zero which never came out.  So you really had three games rolled into one.  slywink
10334  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PSP]Dead Head Fred? on: August 30, 2007, 08:24:27 AM
Heh, absolutely not. 

This is sort of an action/beat 'em up/platformer game where your character is/was a detective who had his head taken off by the mob.  Some crazy doctor put your brain in a jar on your shoulders and reanimated you...or something.  As you play the game you can change your abilities by slapping on different heads.

The main character's voice is done by John C McGinley, who is probably best known as Dr Cox on Scrubs.

Yeah, some of them have my name and names of family and such (resume, picture folders, etc), so as I was blurring those out I just did all of them.  No need for psychos like you to have all my personal info.  slywink

Do it!  I would like to hear some real impressions before I make the plunge.

Just note that OXM gave the game a 7.5 and nocked the single player portion pretty bad, and I see that the EGM reviews average to 6.67 (probably a 6 and two 7's). 

As for the Vietnam games, can you imagine how much cooler they could be now with something like Crysis' jungle vegetation?
What was the reasoning for the knock on the SP?

They mostly said that is was just an average campaign with some AI issues and such.  Here's some quote text:

...While this setup lends a bit of replayability and removes the tight scripting and forced linearity that the series (and WWII games in general) has been guilty of, it's underused: you parachute in only at the beginning, and --sometimes -- when you die and respawn.  Once you're on the ground, Airborne plays very solidly but unspectacularly.  Gunplay is ho-hum, except for the sadistic location-based death system that causes foes to fall over dead in different ways depending on where the fatal bullet penetrated their flesh.  Bonus points for the effort to the weapon upgrades, which offer (for example) recoild and greater zoom bonuses with frequent weapon use, but don't really enhance the game. 

And though the levels are all visually unique, we've fought in too many of these places before.  Both Normandy at D-Day and Market Garden are WWII battles we've survived more than once.  Worse, the AI foes are frustrating.  In short, they're crack shots from any distance, choosing to focus on you even when an AI ally is a nearer, greater threat.  Their precision becomes most painful on the penultimate mission, "Varsity," where you're dropped into a railyard surrounded by snipers.  And though the actual final mission is an engaging sniper-free gauntlet, the finale offers little payoff beyond a short cutscene.  ...

They go on to say that they enjoy the multiplayer quite a bit.

I used a screenshot from the forthcoming Viking game, which I am hoping doesn't suck.

Hooray for Purge!  At least I went up in rank this time.  I'm sure by the next update I will have fallen back since my 360 is in for repairs and everyone else is playing Bioshock and Blue Dragon and Stuntman and everything else that just came out.

I have some very fond memories of playing Streets of Rage on my sega genesis with my bestfriend til the wee hours of the morning

As do I, but I fear that nostalgia might have me primed for another let down. I only regret ONE Live arcade purchase (Street Fighter 2 - because of the poor controls) but there have been a couple of XBLA games turned out to be nostalgia only buys and I've since wished I hadn't picked them up at all. I'm looking at you, Defender.

Considering they all have free demos, there should be no excuse for buying games with poor controls or just aren't fun.  Try before you buy, man!  Tongue
10344  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PSP]Dead Head Fred? on: August 29, 2007, 11:54:01 PM
I was looking forward to this one until I read the Game Informer review, and then I put the brakes on.  I was hoping somebody else around here would try it out and give a man-on-the-streets opinion, or at least a couple more reviews to come in. 

It doesn't have to be perfect for me to enjoy it, but I don't want to get stuck with a stinker.

I never finished Halo 2 and don't much care about the multiplayer, but I'm sure I will pick this one up when it comes out. 
10347  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo Wars on: August 29, 2007, 02:47:56 PM
Well, to be fair from what they showed there are no more resources than something like Dawn of War.  It could be all "command points" from capturing strategic locations or something.  I don't really expect them to have marines mining for ore. 
10348  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo Wars on: August 28, 2007, 02:55:56 PM

Quote from: Kevin Grey on August 28, 2007, 02:53:43 PM

I like the graphics and the interface looks pretty workable.  However I was kind of hoping that the game would be more tactical and less focused on resources so I was kind of disheartened when they start out showing you all of the different structures you can build at your base.  I would have preferred something closer to Myth.  Hope that's temporary voice acting though- that female voiceover is awful. 

Yeah, I was expecting something a little more like Ground Control with no base building, but it looks like it's probably more along the lines of Dawn of War. 
10349  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Halo Wars on: August 28, 2007, 02:51:17 PM
I see that there is a video demo of Halo Wars at places like over here at FileFront which shows a bit of gameplay with voiceover by designer Graeme Devine.  Looks alright, but I wish he would have zoomed in a bit more.

I just watched a show on the Science Channel the other night about this guy who recited pi to 22,514 digits.  It took something like five hours.  He has symptoms of autism but is also able to interact fairly normally in society.

Antihistamines can also dry you out and cause snoring, if you've been taking any of those.

Seems like a pretty reasonable deal for 250 points.  Of course I never picked up the full game in the first place, but maybe someday.

To me, booth babes are a unnecessary negative at trade shows.  Obviously I like looking attractive women, but they have nothing to do with the products you are there to see.  They surely don't give a shit about the what they are showing/representing and most people are decidedly uncomfortable with their presence anyway.  Leave them out and show me what I'm there for. 
10356  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Gods and Heroes Beta codes on: August 28, 2007, 06:38:56 AM
No, the servers were up when I was trying to play.  The errors came when it was trying to load some particle crap, and I got about 30 error boxes, one after another.  I did get far enough to create a characer, but I couldn't see him and it crashed when I tried to play the game.  Too bad there are no settings to mess with before it loads.
10357  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Gods and Heroes Beta codes on: August 28, 2007, 12:15:48 AM
The game insists on crashing when I try to run it so I haven't actually gotten to play.  What a bummer.

Stuntman: Ignition [360] eventually.

I wanted to pick up Dead Head Fred [PSP] but I read the review in Game Informer (6 and 6) and that basically made it sound like mediocre crap.

Would that post moderation center thing allow you to require that the first 10 or so posts of any new account have to be approved, and therefore allow you to spot and kill spammers before their posts actually get to the board?  Not that we get many of those anymore, but it may be useful.
