9681  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Chime in on Fable Lost Chapters please on: January 27, 2008, 06:58:03 PM
It's the original game with some added content like some new side quests/areas and stuff.  I enjoyed it and it's probably a little more complete game than the original release but don't expect something completely different.

+1 to depward for the quick shipping of the 360 controller and game.

I thought it was pretty good, but I'm interested to see where it goes.  It alsmost seems like they were aiming for Showtime or something with the nudity (blurred) and swearing (blanked).  Like a slightly darker version of Weeds, I guess, although it's harder to sympathize/identify with a meth cook. 

I caught the first part of it last night before being interrupted and then found out it was also available on Comcast on-demand (in HD even) so I started that up.  Maybe I just wasn't paying as much attention the first time, but it seemed there were little parts in that version that I didn't see when just watching it on AMC.  Like his wife giving him a hand-job in bed after the birthday party.

Too bad I already bought one of those on clearance at Target a few months ago so I already have the worthless extra headset and Joust. 

I see you can also get a wired 360 controller for $18.  Not bad if you just want an extra for your PC or something.

Speaking of cookies, our HR lady was actually baking chocolate-chip cookies in the office yesterday and it made the whole building smell good all day.  It was sooo hard to pass those up, but I did. 

My hard part isn't the week, where I'm at work for 10+ hours a day and eating normally, but on the weekends I tend to just eat crap all day long if I'm at home and that tanks me hard.  Pizza, chips, chocolate, whatever.  When I'm bored I easily fall victim to cravings.  I think I need to work 7 days a week or something.

Thanks for setting that up for us, by the way.  I wish more participants used it: It's nice to see everyone at one glance.

I told myself I'd finally get an exercise in tonight...but I'm itching to dig into the new Advance Wars.  I really need a stationary bike or something so I can work up a sweat while gaming.  If someone was smart they'd design a gaming system that goes into standby mode if you stop pedalling fast enough.

They do have those racing games that are hooked up to a bike where basically the faster you pedal the faster you go.

I believe so

IMDB has it listed as in post-production, so hopefully if that is anything left is was minor voice-over recording or something.

I'm curious why GamingTrend felt that this game deserved to be given a 3-month window for patches and updates before weighing in with a review.  That seems like a really shady thing to do since you don't give other games the same leniency.

By this
White Wireless Controller (plug-n-play kit included)
do you mean it comes with the USB kit for the PC? If so I'm definitely interested in it, to the extent that I'll call dibbs on it now.

The wireless controllers can not use the play-n-charge USB connector to be used on a PC.  You either need a fully wired controller or the MS wireless adapter (basically a USB dongle that acts as the wireless receiver) to use a wireless controller.

Having said that, if kronovan is no longer interested in the white controller w/ charge kit I'll put in my dibs for it.  I still only have one controller and that's a bit of a drag.

I want to try and love the new Burnout, but with all the new changes it will have to be a rental or wait for a big price drop I think.  

I did just order Zack and Wiki from Amazon since it dropped to $32 there. 
9696  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Looking for a Good B-Rate SciFi Movie like Earth Defence Force. on: January 20, 2008, 01:46:13 AM
You absolutely have to get Them! (1954) if you're looking for something like Earth Defense Force.  It was one of the first giant monster movies (if not the first) and it has giant ants, flamethrowers and lots of pure awesome.  It's easy to see a direct influence for EDF once you've seen this.  It's better than Aliens and Citizen Kane put in a blender. 

If you want a more recent movie like Godzilla, I'd go with Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. over Final Wars.  I thought it was a better movie.

Didn't we have this topic a couple months ago? 

I turn mine off when not using it.  The potential of "saving" on the components is easily overcome by the fact that it's turned off for 3/4 of the day.  No need to waste that extra energy as far as I'm concerned.

Infinite spawn is frustrating and stupid, especially when certain parts of the game have timers.  It feels like a puzzle game to me in a lot places.  You get killed, see what killed you, fix it and move on.  Thats shit and not fun.

My feelings exactly.

You are right, Pug... but those games will still work online after the storm has passed. Oh, and EACH of those games (with possible exception to WCA; I've not played it) has a single player experience. Last I recall broadband attach rates aren't that high and non-connected consoles vastly outrank the ones on the internet.

Considering they have stated that there are 10 million Live subscribers and have "sold" 17.7 million 360s, I think that means you can no longer say that non-connected consoles vastly outrank the ones on the internet.

I was considering FlatOut: Head-On for PSP, but I think I have enough versions of those games until they come out with an actual new release.  

I did just buy Assassin's Creed because it was on sale for $38 again (Target).

I know Burnout Paradise is the game most of us are interested in for January. From what the reviewers say, what it boils down to is the biggest loss is the Crash mode, but the new online stuff is pretty awesome.

Well, I consider Crash mode to be much more important than the TDU-style online stuff, so that's not completely reassuring.

I wasn't able to even sign into Live today when I started up my 360, but as soon as I put in my new disc of Assassin's Creed it prompted me to update and signed me in.  Freaking goofy.

Yeah, some stressful work and terrible eating choices bombed me for this week as well.  At least I continued with my morning exercises.

The potential problem with 60 player multiplayer is that it pretty much demands larger levels and if you have less than max players it can really change the pace of the game and make it seem empty.  I'm sure they're taking that into account and trying to design for it, but depending on the solution it may mean less maps for fewer people.
