Aegis Wing is a passable sidescrolling space shooter, but man sometimes it's hard to tell which parts of the environments will destroy you and which ones won't.

From my experience (2 levels and change), none of the environment can kill you. Only the moving baddies, their bullets, and the giant ass mines of doom.

Well I guess what I meant is that sometimes it appears that the backgrounds are in the foreground and are capable of being flown into. Maybe it's the Zaxxon in me coming back..

It's a little thing called three-dee.  Those objects are closer to the camera and fly "over" your ship.  Tongue

I haven't tried out multiplayer but I'd be interested to see what happens when you join together with the X button.  I'm not sure who would control moving or shooting when you do that.

Eh, I played a match of the weird king whatever and then went back to playing Crackdown.  I might be interested in the single player of Halo 3 but I just don't think I can play that type of multiplayer anymore.  Not that I was ever big into Halo 2, either. 

The little four wheeler wasn't as fun to drive as I was hoping.  The weapons seemed pretty satisfying.

The graphics are a good step up from Halo 2, obviously, but they aren't mind blowing.

And if it has the extra PC content like the developer's commentary, that is something that the console crowd didn't get to experience.

Well, if you're looking for a shooter you can just grab Aegis Wing for free on XBLA.  And if you're looking for Bomberman action, you can always wait for the updated one that's coming to....XBLA. 

This is all assuming you have an XBox 360, of course.  slywink

Yeah, I don't think you ever collide with the environment. 

I am sort of disappointed that it doesn't appear that your main weapon ever gets upgraded, but at least the secondary ones are plentiful so I don't feel like I have to save them forever and ever like i normally do in these sorts of games.

From Bungie:

We're happy to announce that starting immediately, a new title update for Crackdown is available on Xbox Live that will enable downloading of the Halo 3 Beta. Also, as a consolation for lost time and inconvenience, we are extending the Halo 3 Beta end date to Sunday, 6/10, at 11:59 PM PDT.

Enjoy the extra day betaing multiplayer.

Extra 3 days, actually.

When we get together, my family really enjoys playing the Sequence board game.  It's fairly simple to get a grasp on but then allows for strategies, and it's playable for 2 to 12 people. 

It doesn't have anything to do with comic books or anything, though.

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.
9611  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: free XBLA game coming on: May 16, 2007, 12:55:37 PM
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.  
9612  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.

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

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.

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. 
9629  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.

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. 
9635  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. 
9636  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.
