Well, I stopped by my local KMart and they didn't even have a bin.  All of the games mentioned that I saw were still in the lock-up case and marked as $39.99 or whatever.  I didn't bother to try and track anybody down and get them to open it, though.

If anybody finds a copy of Amped 3 for that clearance price ($5-7) I'd be happy to pay for the game, tax and shipping.

For those five man parties, I am looking to buy a cowbell just for - Blue Oyster Cult "Don't Fear the Reaper"

Just to let you know, you don't actually have to buy a cowbell (or tambourine) since the microphone will allow the singer to play those parts by tapping it or saying something like "Pow!". 
9525  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: K-Mart's sale prices on games - some great deals on: October 31, 2007, 07:15:47 AM
So are these games in a clearance section or marked at all, or do you have to get them to open the cases and scan them to even check what the prices are?

Wasn't there a vest sort of like this that came out years ago when they were making all of those rumble chairs and everything?  It may not have been as accurate in it's feedback back then I suppose, but I'm not sure if I'm really sold on the usefullness of this.

I really hope they put out a single player demo on the 360 since I didn't get to play the multiplayer beta (and I'd rather try out the single player anyway).

The Pixies' "Wave of Mutilation" is from an album that came out in 1989...why is that in the 2000's category?

On sale for $39.99 at Circuit City this week, which may be the the best price for a couple months.

PS: Looks pretty nice for a free game. Better than dungeonrunners, imo.
I gotta take it back. I just fired up dungeonrunners again to check it out, and it's looking much better than when I started puttering with it. I'd say graphics are close to equivalent, though I think I like the overall setup with mythos better.

You know, it's too bad they're both.. like.. free. Kinda hard to be harsh on something that doesnt (at least currently) cost anything to play.

Actually DR isn't fully 'free'. To get access to the best items, you gotta cough up like $5 a month or something really small. At least it was that way when I was first playing. Still a cool game though.

I did just read something that they are thinking of dropping that premium content model, but not sure when that would be. 
9535  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (10/29) on: October 29, 2007, 03:24:33 PM
I'll probably get The Simpsons Game eventually, but not likely this week.

I'm pretty sure FlatOut: Head-On has been delayed for a couple months and won't be out this week.

Nevermind that you can technically do both of those things now pretty easily using the Internet Channel smile

What ever happened to that long promised health channel?  Did that end up being a bust, or are they converting it to a full game?

don't they have some game coming out that you need a board to play with that's supposed to be about exercising?

Wii Fit, and yeah I'm guessing some of that health channel stuff got rolled in with that. 
9538  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: H-Gate London Demo.....Can we talk? on: October 29, 2007, 07:02:19 AM
Hellgate is in the Circuit City weekly ad for $39.99 this week (collector's is still $59.99).  So go to Best Buy or Walmart and just price match because you know CC won't actually have them.

9541  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Simpsons Game Best Buy Code? on: October 28, 2007, 08:53:44 PM
Yeah, a lot of the codes that Best Buy gets to "unlock" stuff (like "access to the fastest car in Stuntman") are things that you can unlock just by playing the game, but the code gives you instant access to it.

jersoc, I don't think he was attacking how easy the game is, just the apparent simplicity of it's gameplay and similarity to other rhythm games. 
9543  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Gamestop no longer offering warranties on 360 consoles! on: October 27, 2007, 08:57:51 PM
I think it's pretty well accepted by everyone that the failure rates are far above normal for the 360.  When Microsoft has to come out and say that they're not happy with the failure rates and that they are extending the warranty to 3 years and taking a billion dollar hit to cover the repairs...that's a pretty good signal that things aren't going as planned.

9545  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: New I Am Legend Trailer on: October 27, 2007, 08:31:45 PM
That version makes my Quicktime break, but I found a copy elsewhere.  I'd say that this trailer looks better than the last teaser.  I am skeptical but I think it may be a decent movie even if it doesn't quite follow the book. 

Heh, I actually just picked up a copy of the book at the library this morning.  Well, it's the Blood Lines book that contains the original I Am Legend novel(la), Matheson's original script for a movie version and lots of other stuff including interviews with Matheson in which he comments on the previous movie adaptations ("They're terrible."). 

The funny thing is that this book is actually a numbered, signed limited edition hardcover #399 of 500.  Not sure why the library has that version, but it's cool. 
9546  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Orange Box [360] - Thoughts and Impressions please. on: October 27, 2007, 06:11:56 PM
I wouldn't call over a year and a half "somewhat fresh".  November '04 to June '06.  That's about the time it normally takes for a full sequel to come out in many cases. 
9547  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command on: October 27, 2007, 04:53:23 PM
I finally got to try the demo and that was pretty damn fun!  I love the destruction and I think this could only get better once you can do more weapon and squad customization.  I think 15 missions of that length (or a little longer) wouldn't be bad at all and this has shot up my list of games to buy. 

My main issues were the same that everyone else had: namely that the enemy's turn has all their units acting at once and the camera does not move to the action on the battlefield.  That helps to keep the pace up, but it would be nice to have the option for the enemy to take it's turns one at a time. 

I also had several turns where there were no visible enemies and none moving on the tactical map.  I basically had to walk around and destroy the outer walls to get them to appear and start moving towards the wall.
9548  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Music for warning - suggestions please! on: October 27, 2007, 03:04:53 PM
First off, I think it's only appropriate for you to at least list a few of your favorite bands so we can get an idea of your taste.  Tongue

Upon receipt of my Zune I've also been ripping and downloading a bunch of music both new suggestions from friends and some of my own stuff.  Lately I've been listening to Spoon, Built to Spill, The Futureheads, M. Ward, The Black Keys, Califone, The Good, The Bad & The Queen (Damon Albarn from Blur and Gorillaz), Joe Strummer & the Mescaleros, DeVotchKa, The National, Wolf Parade, and lots of other stuff.

D'oh!  You guys are totally right.  I can't believe I forgot that.  Now I feel like a moron.   disgust

In my defense, I did have a lot of trouble getting my system to detect it and keep a connection with that first cable I had, so when this happened I just assumed there was something goofy.

I have yet to finish Episode 2, but those were about my exact same thoughts when I played Episode 1 and I was really hoping this second one would introduce some fresh elements like they talked about. 
9551  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command on: October 27, 2007, 06:29:52 AM
Does anybody else ever have problems with their PSP not getting recognized when you hook it up via USB?  I've tried hooking it up before powering on and after and nothing ever pops up now.  This happened when I first got my PSP and had a cheap USB data/power splitter cable so I replaced that and it worked fine, but now my regular USB cable is giving me the same results.  Is there a way to force Windows to poll for USB devices?  (maybe I should start my own thread...)

Weren't we discussing this same thing like 6 months ago?  1080i/720p HD-DVD players at Wal-Mart for $200...this is very familiar. 

Maybe so - I didn't catch that this pup doesn't do 1080p.  When those players hit at 200 bucks I can see a lot of folks jumpin.

I think maybe we were just talking about the rumor that this was coming for Black Friday or something.  I don't know.  Maybe my memory is just going backwards these days.   icon_confused

I think a lot of us, including me, have seen some less than stellar videos and such from this game and aren't expecting it to be amazing.  I hope that it turns out really well, but I'm skeptical and I'm not willing to buy it before reading reviews to find out.

Earth Defense Force is a good one for 2 players as long as you don't mind the B-movie production values.
Also, Dynasty Warriors Gundam.

You can probably still download a bunch of stuff for Kameo...
I think some of the add-ons add/improve co-op play.

I have to agree that EDF2017 was a really fun game to play even though it is totally not top quality.  It took the B-movie vibe and ran with it, so much that I was finished the game on two difficulty levels and half-way through a third.  I hardly finish any games I play, so that says something.  Just don't expect it to be a AAA game or anything close and you can have fun with it.
