Does the solitaire game have MP?

Wouldn't that defeat the purpose?  icon_lol

And yet it does have multiplayer options for Live and local play.  Tongue

By the way, I read something today that said the DLC coming out for Crackdown would include a town reset option so you can repopulate the world.

Geez, there's a thought. And something that should've been included with the game when it launched.

As far as I know you can.  There's an option when you start to turn crime back on that will put gang members back in.  I thought the DLC put all the leaders back.  Correct me if I'm wrong.

Yeah, that first reset option was always there once you beat the game, but it was not obvious to many people that it became available.  I think if I hadn't read about it I probably wouldn't have known to look for it.

Hooray for free games!  So far I have to say that it isn't too bad.  At least it isn't a one-hit kill system, which always frustrated me.  I could really use a faster and more spread out weapon, though.  Hopefully the upgrade system is decent.

The new solitaire XBLA game is out now, too, and of course has a demo available.  
9204  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo 3 = September 25 on: May 16, 2007, 12:50:46 PM
At least they are coming out a few weeks before the GTA4 juggernaut.  Probably a good thing to drive some system sales early and then sell more gift games as the other big releases hit. 

This is going to be one expensive holiday season, I think.

9206  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Lost Planet DX9 and DX10 demo out on: May 16, 2007, 01:39:48 AM
The demo for the PC version of Lost Planet is now available.  You can download it in DX9 or DX10 versions in various places, including NVIDIA's nZone and probably your favorite other demo/download sites.  Sorry, I'm too lazy to find and make 20 links to all the different sites. 

Apparently it inlcudes a benchmark and there is some DX10 comparison info over at Legit Reviews

Check out this little video of the game in action.  It looks like it plays close to the old games and is very fluidly animated.  Looking forward to this one!
9209  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (5/14) on: May 14, 2007, 09:43:51 PM
I'd like to pick up Infernal, but will probably wait until it hits $20.  Which won't be long, I'm guessing.

9211  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: XBLA Prince of Persia Classic this summer! on: May 14, 2007, 09:30:13 PM
That looks pretty snazzy!  If it plays well I think I will have to cough up the points for a purchase when it is released. 
9212  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: It's May. What Are the Best Games You've Played So Far This Year (All Platforms) on: May 14, 2007, 12:20:56 PM
I'd have to say Crackdown and Earth Defense Force 2017 for the 360, and since I didn't finish Saint's Row until January I will add that one there, too.  

For the PC I think the only game I bought was FlatOut 2, but it was easily a favorite.  I also put several hours into the freebie Desktop Tower Defense, which is unusual for me.

Only a week or so to go until we all know the truth.
So who's going to scream if it's another WoW expansion?  icon_wink
The Blizzard person who made that decision.  They'll have trouble though with my boot on their neck.

The only good news is that they didn't list the first WoW expansion on that list, so that pretty much throws out the chance of it being a second addon.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing.  No expansions were listed on there at all, so it's likely a new game/sequel.

My one day weekend was spent playing some Crackdown with the new content.  Oddly enough, most of the time I was just going around trying to get the stunt markers that I never finished before.  But I did take some time to harpoon a few civilians to my car along the way.  smile  I think I may need to just reset the gangs so I can whoop some more butt. 
9215  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3] Condemned 2 announced on: May 13, 2007, 01:08:35 AM
This isn't my type of game, I'm not really into the scary thrillers, but I'm glad to see that it's getting a sequel.

I've only been to Disney World and Epcot Center once, but the one thing that I really remember was this free thing at Epcot where you could get your picture taken and then a robot arm would draw it out on a piece of paper while you watched.  That was better than the fireworks and other stuff for me.

I only get one day off this weekend, so I'm not sure how to spend it.  I would like to get a bit further in Spiderman 3 before I have to return it to Blockbuster, but the new Crackdown content makes me want to pull that one back out and wreak havoc.  I also purchased Catan earlier this week and I wouldn't mind getting some more practice matches in against the AI.

I wonder if they could make some kind of light gun shell that would fit the Wii Mote and still let you use the buttons, or just make a light gun with the Wii Motes buttons placed around the handgrip.

Well, there is this thing supposedly coming out in June:



And I've seen some other shots of what were likely prototype gun attachments. 
9221  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Car porn (Forza 2) on: May 11, 2007, 12:16:18 AM
I can't believe they didn't include a single classic muscle car.  Bastards. 

The demo played fine and was very reminiscent of the first Forza, as could be expected I guess.  I think the jaggies mostly went away during the replays. 

I am also begrudgingly allowing myself to come to the conclusion that, like Misguided, this is just not my type of racing game.  It's just a bit too sterile for me.  I enjoy the visceral thrills of rally and such.  I will now be trasferring my excitement to DIRT: Colin McRae Off-Road and FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage.  And of course PGR4 and Burnout Paradise whenever they arrive.

So your first thought after finding gum in your burger is that you might have hepatitis?  Who the hell thinks like that? 

I also liked this: "And so I decided to regurgitate everything back into the box and examined it, and it looked like gum to me. Immediately I felt very sick."  Yes, you usually do feel very sick after regurgitating your meal into a box.

9226  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Lego Star Wars: the true noob-friendly game on: May 10, 2007, 11:20:04 PM
Both of the Lego Star Wars games were good fun, but I enjoyed the first one more than the sequel (which was for the original trilogy, confusingly enough).  I think it was mostly because they nerfed the lightsaber combat and that had been my main method of combat when I played the first one. 
9227  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Simpsons New Game on: May 10, 2007, 11:04:21 PM
I can't get those Kotaku videos to play, but I didn't like the video clips I've seen elsewhere.  I preferred the look of Hit & Run, even though it wasn't exactly true to the show.  Things just don't look right in the backgrounds and such when you're trying to simulate the look of a cartoon, because they usually simplify the background to draw focus to the fore.  It also just looked really flat and lifeless, which to me isn't acceptable for a current gen game. 

The gameplay also seemed to show a bit more "Lost Vikings" style of play where you use one character to open a door for the other one and switch back and forth.  That's cool, but maybe not what I really want from a Simpsons game. 
9228  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New Crackdown content this week... on: May 10, 2007, 10:33:02 PM
I would just like to give a big "HELL YEAH!" to the Crackdown team for these.  Not only is there a great amount of free updates and add-ons, but the DLC pack looks good and the ability to try it out from somebody else that has it is wonderful. 

I think for me the goodwill generated by the free content and fixes/changes is enough to say that I'm much more willing to buy the bonus pack.  It will certainly get me to pop the game back in once it hits.

Mad Tracks will definitely get me to try out the demo, but I hear they stripped out most of the levels from the PC game to sell as two add-on packs so I don't know if I will buy it.   

That boardgame compilation is nice to see, I'm sure that will be good fun for Live play. 

I see there is a pretty nice video that has most of these games as well as a few others (Super Contra, Missle Command, Yie Ar Kung Fu) over here.  Don't mind the site's foreign language, just click on the black video area to start it up.

Orcs and Humans FTL.  Give me Zerglings, Hydralisks, Zealots, and the like.

This is one of the things that makes me wonder what sort of playable races they could have in a World of StarCraft game.  The zerg were not exactly anthropomorphic like the races of WarCraft, and then you have only Protoss and Terrans.  Blizzard really expanded the race count in WarCraft 3, and StarCraft never really had that chance.  It was also much more vehicle based rather than unit/character based. 

As Calvin mentioned, we have yet to really see a good ranged combat based MMO, so that would be another thing they need to overcome. 

It could be great if they just shook up the whole paradigm of MMORPGs, but that is not exactly Blizzard's forte.  They are more of the type to take an established concept and refine it to a drug-tipped needle point. 
9239  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: what time is the 360 dashboard update? on: May 07, 2007, 08:17:51 PM
He could mean that they are wrapping up the certification process, or getting it uploaded and ready for download or testing the downloads from offsite or who knows what.  I think you need to relax and let it come when it's done rather than feel like they owe you to get this out today. 
9240  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Recap 5-7-2007 on: May 07, 2007, 05:32:01 AM
Played (and still playing) Spiderman 3 on the 360.  Not great by a long shot but it will hold my interest for a week or so. 

I also tried out the demo for Catan and enjoyed it right up until it told me it was limited to 7 points for the human player.  Bastards!  That really did make me want to go out and buy it, though, and I likely will later this week.
