For those that haven't yet reached the stealth run on the town at the end of the first "level", I'd suggest you use that time to collect as much of the treasure/skulls as you can.

Skulls?

It's just a secondary thing for an achievement.  There are 6 skulls hidden in each town that you can collect if you want.  Not really worth it to me (but the gold would have been).

"Earth Hour is the highlight of a major campaign to encourage businesses, communities and individuals to take the simple steps needed to cut their emissions on an ongoing basis. It is about simple changes that will collectively make a difference – from businesses turning off their lights when their offices are empty, to households turning off appliances rather than leaving them on standby."

Good luck with that part about getting businesses to go along.  I worked for a major corporation and managed a store for them and got in trouble for turning off half the lights overnight.  "OMG! ROBBERZ!"  was their response. 

The only way to enact serious energy change is to hit those guys in the only place they pay attention - their costs.

Had you bothered to go to the site, you would have seen that over 20,000 businesses had signed up to participate.  If even some fraction of those continue to be aware and responsible then that helps quite a bit.

For those that haven't yet reached the stealth run on the town at the end of the first "level", I'd suggest you use that time to collect as much of the treasure/skulls as you can.  During the big battle you can't see the treasure on your map and once that's over you don't get the chance to explore any more. 

Oddly enough the town in the middle of the second "level" is much easier to sneak around than that first one.  I had a hell of a time there. 

Despite that, though, I am still really enjoying the game.  Certainly better than most of those reviews made it seem.

What good is it going to do if they get turned on again?  Is it really going to make that big of a difference?  If they did it all night every night, that would be more impressive.

I always use VLC for my Qucktime/media needs and it is awesome.  About a billion times better performance than Apple's QT player. 

And also, Anzac, I'm assuming you've upgraded your sound and motherboard drivers?  That and reinstalling DirectX are usually my first action if there is some issue with sound not working.

The PSP Dungeon Siege is much less of the group-control game that it was on the PC was.  You directly control one character and can have one follower helping you along, more like the Diablo games.  I still haven't finished it, but I thought what I played was great.  They did a good job of adapting all the menus and options and stuff to the PSP, and the gameplay is fun with great graphics. 

I think there may be a demo you can get, or at least I know you can play one on the demo PSP's I've seen at Target.

hmm, don't have the manual.....anyone know how to do that?

The manual says for Summoning to "Press Select and then choose 'View Followers' ".  Under 'Death & Revival' it says that you can use the special Ankh near their tombstone or the healer in town to revive them no matter where their body is.  I seem to also recall that your followers won't show up until you get to a map area.  Unfortunately my PSP battery is nearly dead and I have charge it via USB so I can't check in-game yet.

ok, couple hours in and i got a problem i can't figure out.   my sidekick got killed in a dungeon and i can't revive them.   i bought a scroll in town, but when i go back to the body, it's not there.   i use the scroll but it won't work.   i also visited the guy in town who resurrects, but when i click him, it says there is noone to resurrects.

am i missing something or is this a bug of some kind?

I seem to remember that you have to re-summon them or whatever after you resurrect them. 
9219  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Viking: Battle for Asgard Intro Movie on: March 29, 2008, 05:12:03 PM
Bullwinkle, to get your army to help you when attacking a big fortification like the Gorge and the Encampment by it, you use the map to select that area and press A to call your warriors and start the battle (the option will open up after you've met the requirements).  The map is also what tells you how many more groups of warriors you need to free and any other things to accomplish before the battle. 

And I forgot the one other thing that I dislike about this game: having to smack the B button to interact with stuff (opening chests, freeing warriors, etc).  I know this is basically taken from God of War, but it's a terrible mechanic and should just die.  This isn't 1986 and I'm not playing Track and Field so quit making me mash buttons!  Just let me hold it down for a couple seconds or something.

gotta love amazon. I emailed them last night and got an email this morning giving me a price adjustment.

Sweet!  Good customer service, that.

They have a policy that if the price on something you bought drops within 30 days you can get the difference back.  Of course it has to actually be from Amazon and not one of their partner stores, but it's not something you have to convince them to do.

On the looking at the sky and ground, have her go through the intro to Halo, where they check out Master Chief before the action.  She may be a natural inverted-style player - I am, and that is how I found out.

Yeah, that initial section was ingenious for introducing console FPS controls. 
9223  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Viking: Battle for Asgard Intro Movie on: March 29, 2008, 03:30:09 AM
I've played for a few hours now and it looks like you guys have summed it up pretty well.  It's not earth shatteringly awesome, but if you like the Norse material and hack-n-slash action/adventure games there is a lot of fun to be had here. 

I certainly wouldn't say that it is all linear, though.  Yeah there are times when you have to go in one direction to advance, but for the most part you are able to explore the world and go to any of the conflict areas. 

I think the graphics are great, except for the times when things are so dark that they're basically black around your character.  Maybe I can jack up the gamma a bit, but things look great in the sunny areas so I don't want to wash them out. 

The combat seemed a bit unresponsive when I first started but I think mostly that was because even the fast attack has a delay if you swing at nothing.  I have started to use some of the moves that I've bought and I find that it helps quite a bit.  Sneaking up on some guys to sliceone clean in half, knocking another down with a shoulder blow and then smacking down the third with a combo is very satisfying. 

One time I went wandering a bit and happened upon a whole squad of like 50 fucking Legion just marching up the road.  That didn't turn out so hot.

The only other complaint I can think of is that trying to fight on bridges and cliff edges while trying not to fall off is a bit hairy.  I'm having fun, though, and I can't wait to play more this weekend.

Netflix is nice for catching up on long since released movies but as far as new releases you gotta hit the local B&M spots early still.

Up until my recent problem that has absolutely not been the case.  Any time I sent in movies on Sunday or Monday morning I would be able to get the new releases that came out that Tuesday.

They may play loose with the estimates, but I still have 5 movies that have been at the top of my queue for a month and not at my house.

I've been having all sorts of trouble even getting regular DVD versions of new releases lately.  I think right now I have 5 recent releases (the last month or so) still on Long Wait and a few other things on Short Wait.  Up until a month or two ago I never, ever had that problem.  It's really pissing me off that it's been weeks and I still haven't gotten new releases.

So to avoid further derailing the "What are you buying" thread, it looks like reviews for this one are kind of all over the board.  Checking out MetaCritic you can see a low score of 6/10 from GameDaily and a high of 9.5 from Play Magazine with some others filling out the middle for an average of 76%. 

After reading the reviews I think that while it may not be the ultimate epic I figure my love of vikings and action/adventure games means that I will be plenty satisfied.  My copy should arrive tomorrow or Thursday and I'm excited.

make sure to post your Vikings impressions when you get it.  The IGN review has me passing, but I didn't realize the reviews varied so wildly.

Without a doubt I'll be posting some impressions by the weekend.  My copy should arrive tomorrow it looks like.

So I'm curious...

Assuming Age of Conan makes its newest release date, is Warhammer Online scheduled to release anywhere near it as far as timing? 

Has it even been announced or speculated?  Does anyone see these games being released within 3-4 months of each other, or is Warhammer still a long ways out?

IGN says June 10th for Warhammer.

That's the same date that EB/GS is showing and if it's accurate I don't think it's going to be good for either game. 

Well, it's a bit odd to quote myself but now that Warhammer Online has been delayed again to a "fall" release it looks like Age of Conan will have the summer to itself.
