This was already brought up in the Hellgate thread, although I think it deserves it's own thread. 

Latest seems to be that they are gone as of this weekend: shit hits the fan.

I will certainly give the demo a try.  I've said it before, but the camera for this game could make or break it for me.

Certainly looks familiar but I can't think of the name. 
9164  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PSP] Flatout: Head On on: July 11, 2008, 03:59:35 AM
I'm a big fan of the FlatOut games, but after finding out that this is basically another remake of a remake I decided that I didn't want it that badly.  If they had bothered to make some new tracks and vehicles available I might have gone for it. 

I've also never been a bit fan of their driver stunt minigames, mostly for the same reasons you stated.

I agree that it looks like it has potential.  Could be one of the few good game movies.

I'm curious about that birdman aspect, too, though. Hopefully that's from some drug-induced delusion.  Otherwise...wft?

I can't wait to see this!  The company is sponsoring another movie day out (perhaps since Indy wasn't that well received) so I guess next Friday afternoon will be full of awesome.

I was just at the local Target and saw some drops in clearance prices.  CoD2 for 360 was $5, Turning Point for PC was $15, and some other crap.

This team is now taking a well-earned vacation and when they come back will work hard to bring you actual previews of GamerPics and Themes.  Expect that updated sometime in mid to late 2010.

I must be the only person in the country that knows nothing about this film. I haven't seen anything for it except for posters when I go to the movies, and people in forums saying how excited for it they are.

I've seen previews and I still know pretty much nothing about it.  There is a junkyard robot left on earth to clean stuff up and he leaves.  Then a bunch of stuff happens, apparently.

I don't know, that game looks tremendously shitty.

Yeah, I can see that there are elements that don't look outstanding.  However, considering Volition did a great job with Saints Row's third person gameplay I am psyched to see that combined with 7 years of advancements in physics and destruction. 

The best part of the first game was that extra room that was surrounded by rock and you could just blast your own tunnels with explosives.  I always got frustrated because the game kept ran out of available memory to use for destructibles (and therefore quit letting you destroy stuff) when I was getting my tunnel almost back around to the ceiling.  Now imagine being able to bring down full buildngs with that technology.   drool

Wow, I completely disagree with everything you say in this thread. 

So you love OOTS, George RR Martin, think Memento was amazing, and hate Serenity?

We must fight.

Yeah, pretty much (althout I wouldn't say I love OOTS, just like it.  And the last GRRM book was much worse than the first couple).  I really like Memento and thought Serenity was mediocre at best.

I am pumped up! Wall-E is finally here. I'm debating whether to go to a midnight screening tonight as I really have to be a good boy and finish a project before engaging in some Pixar magic dust. Rotten Tomatoes is currently tracking it at a whooping 94%!
Well the one negative reviewer thus far seems to be a douche so it's closer to 100. Tongue

It's funny, all the other reviewers have 0-4 comments at their reviews, this guy has 76.  None of them flattering.

And that is how you drum up unique visitors to your website.

I tried out the Wall-E PC demo and I definitely won't be buying that piece of crap. 
9175  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Red Faction: Guerrilla on: June 26, 2008, 03:57:54 AM
What can I say, I actually enjoyed the first one and this development diary (with lots of game footage) looks pretty good.  Tons of realistic destruction in an open world?  Count me in!

Of course they will have some stiff competition from Mercenaries 2, but I think if their destruction is as dynamic as it seems that will add quite a bit to the game for people like me. biggrin

I have a similar problem with books and music.  I can have five different books or authors in mind when I leave the house but once I walk into the bookstore I draw a total blank.  It's gotten to the point where I have to write down everything I intended to check out so I don't forget.

You could go directly to cyberpower instead of a prebuilt one from newegg.

Yeah, they have tons of great options to configure your own system right on CyberPowerPC's website.  That way you can get exactly what you want and can afford without being restricted to those few choices.  Plus, buying it through there helps GT if you use the ad link from the front page.

I'm not buying anything, but I'm actually curious about Wall-E.  I heard that it's some kind of physics puzzle platformer, and that sounds right up my alley if they did it right.  We'll see what reviews say after I've seen the movie. 
9186  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: 100 Pushups - 6 week program. Who's in? on: June 23, 2008, 02:59:06 PM
After that day 1, I'm dreading day 2.  If I did a max of 7 decent pushups in the test, how can I do 9-8-6-5-7 on my secod day?

it's probably until they run out of spare copies, like most of their previous sales.  ie, if you want the game, don't put it off too long. 

I came to that same conclusion last night and just ordered Burnout: Paradise.  Who knows when I will have time to play it.

Maybe I am young....and maybe you guys are old.....or we just have way different movie taste....I think I have seen maybe 1 of the movies posted.......oh well....I keep checking to see if I recognize anything.....

Well, They Live is a classic B-movie from '88 by John Carpenter.  It has 'Rowdy' Roddey Piper as a guy who sees things as they really are when he puts on these special sunglasses (like in that B&W shot), so he goes around blasting the alien overlords disguised as people with a shotgun.  It's stupid fun. 

But I agree that a lot of these seem just old or obscure for the sake of it.

So the Spore Creature Creator is NOT Spore?  Is that game ever coming out?  What is the creature creator?  The part where you make your creation and then when the full game comes out, you launch it into the world?

That pretty much sums it up. The full game is in September I think.

It's basically a way for EA to get $10 out of people and populate their creature database.  EA totally has suckering people down to a science.

And yet people are still willing to get suckered...

Yes what kind of a rock have you been living under if you don't know of Shenmue?  It's not a big name now but in its time it was THE console release.  Was it really that much of a disaster?  I've never played it but I thought it was supposed to be half decent.  Also The Getaway may or may not be good but it is definitely not an unknown title.  It was basically a GTA ripoff if I recall.

Shenmue does not even remotely belong on this list. It was a very good game for its time. It wasn't a GTA ripoff at all. Mostly because it came out prior to GTA3 and it wasn't nearly as open ended as GTA is. It was however, one of the first console games with a 3d open world design. The thing that set Shenmue apart from other games of it's time is that had a very strong story that was meant to be told in several installments. Unfortunately only 2 installments were released.

It was a ground breaking game for its time and set the stage for games like GTA3, Mafia, and even other heavily story driven games.

They're talking about financial disaster, not the game as a whole. 
9199  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Gamefly used game sale on: June 18, 2008, 03:47:28 AM
So is this a limited time sale or just price reductions?  I may have to finally order Burnout Paradise, even though I was going to wait until this fall's downloadable content.
9200  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Talk me out of getting a Zune? on: June 18, 2008, 03:45:36 AM
The newer Zunes (8 and 80GB) also have the touch-sensitive front control-pad thingy, so you can swipe-scroll similar to how you would on an iPhone without smudging your screen.  Or you can tap it like the original ones, which works great as far as I'm concerned.  And as mentioned above it is also smaller with a slightly larger screen.

Having said that, the fact that the 30GB has the new firmware means that you're not really losing functionality going that (cheaper) route.
