I played the demo a bit and while it was fun and seemed like it might be a quality title I don't think I woud end up playing it much.  Also, the flame thrower is kinda sucky.  It's more like a whip or something.

Quote from: Kevin Grey on December 15, 2006, 01:30:03 AM

I'd highly recommend Splinter Cell: Double Agent- the Xbox version is superior to the 360 version IMO. 

I was actually waiting to see if this one would make the BC list before I bought it...looks like I have one more to add to my spring wishlist!  icon_smile

Glad to see the Soul Calibur 2 also made the list, that is one of the few games I can get my non-hardcore friend to play (the other is Burnout 3, which made the cut last time and just got updated).  I wouldn't mind revisiting MX Unleashed either.  Good times!

Man, I wish my UT2004 DVD didn't have a big freaking scratch on it.  Probably the only game I've ever owned that got one, and one of the few I would like to reinstall this long after it came out.

Hooray for Psychonauts, I-Ninja (I had a surprising amount of fun with this one), Destroy All Humans, MK: Armageddon and Indigo Prophecy.  I don't even own those last three, but they should make for some nice cheap entertainment during some of these cold, rainy winter days.

I haven't had any problems with Black, whatsoever.  In fact, I found it to be one of the more impressive BC updated titles.  There doesn't seem to be anything in the "Known Issues" section of the Xbox.com BC section.

Not to say you haven't had problems, though.

It does look impressive, that is for sure. Too bad it's rather buggy and gets worse the farther you get in the game. It's like they got it to work....but then didn't play past the first couple levels thinking it was fine.

I'm like Bullwinkle in that I didn't have any problems at all with Black on my 360.

Quote from: whiteboyskim on December 13, 2006, 08:06:35 PM

Funny enough this actually gives me hope that someday Microsoft will quit half-assing their BC updates and continue getting the real games available. That's not take anything away from Big Mutha Truckers mind you but it's still great to hear that Buffy, Burnout 3, Destroy All Humans, and Psychonauts are soon to be BC.

Burnout 3 made the BC list on the last update, thankfully, and one of the Buffy Games (Chaos Bleeds) has been on there for a while.

My box has just started acting funny in the last week or so.  I've been playing Fable and getting occasional lockups which I first assumed was emulation problems or something.  Now the last couple times I've been playing there has been some graphical corruption on the screen which leads me to believe there is a heat issue.  I haven't changed where I keep the console or power brick and it has plenty of open air so I'm not sure what the problem is unless the fans aren't working or something (it's not noisy at all).  But I don't suppose I can open it up myself and still get support from Microsoft. 

Argh, if this thing craps out on me I'm going to be uber pissed!  Especially since I will have to send it back to MS, and during the holidays no less!

I have historically left pizza in the box and usually in the oven overnight. I actually HATE refrigerated pizza. I hate micorwaving pizza.

9932  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Let's War! What's your Most Fun Game of the Year? on: December 13, 2006, 03:58:46 AM
The game I played the most and had the most fun with would probably be Just Cause for the 360.  I'd put in Honorable Mentions for Gears of War, Lego Star Wars (yes, the first one) and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory.  And possibly Battlefield 2142 and Black.  Or I could just continue listing all the games I played this year. icon_smile

Pizza keeps for a long time, it's sort of the beef jerky of Italian food.   Unless you ordered one with anchovies, which I doubt since I don't think a pizza with anchovies would be left out overnight by accident.

Pizza is italian?!

Behold the History of Pizza.

Well they put the trees back in Sea-Tac.  And to clear things up, the paper today said that the rabbi didn't request that they pull down the Christmas trees, he just wanted the right to put up the menorah also.  He/they will not be suing (which was a threat used after weeks of getting stonewalled), but Sea-Tac officials are apparently still not going to be putting up a menorah and have said "We'll talk next year".  Way to go, guys.

My only problem with B&N is that it costs $25 for their 10% off membership, which means you have to buy at least $250 worth of books in a year to make it worthwhile and their books are usually more expensive than you can find elsewhere.  Yes, you get those emails with 30% off select books and crap, but they are usually just a few hardcover versions of mass-market crap I don't want anyway.

I honestly don't understand why they don't just copy the Achievements concept wholesale.  I think that Achievements are absolutely brilliant, and I know I'll miss them when I finally do get a PS3 if they don't implement something similar.

I agree.  to completionists, it's a major draw surprisingly

The problem is that with the 360 this was a system-wide decision made well before launch.  Sony could patch similar functionality into their system for future game releases but when there aren't standards on points or it isn't a mandatory inclusion in every game it loses some of it's draw.  I don't want this to turn into an anti-Sony post or anything, but I do have to give Microsoft props for some well though-out and implemented elements in the overall package.  Surprising, really. 

What sort of headset do you guys use with your PS3?  I haven't seen any advertised or shown (Sony branded or otherwise), and I found that pretty odd.

So, part of me says "Buy Now" and part of me says "Wait for the must-have games and (hopefully) a more stable system".  So torn...

If there's a definite sign that MS is releasing 3rd gen 360's (or 2nd, but I remember hearing they're on the 2nd gen arlready) I'd wait.  However, unless they make major cosmetic changes, how you'd be able to tell what gen they are is beyond me.

They have a manufactured date and serial number you can check right on top of the box.

Fixed, because Star Trek as a whole fucking sucks.

And yes, the Firefly cast rules.

That may be true (albeit opinion), but it is MORE true of that first season.  Jesus...I'd rather have rough sex with a bear trap than watch that again.

It sounds like you're looking for a reason to keep it, msduncan, and if that's the case just do so and enjoy it.  It may not be what I would do, but my situation is different than yours as is everybody elses.  You should be able to get some great playtime out of a couple new games and some PS2 games until the next wave of releases hits next spring. 

To clarify on what Hetz said, the Japanese version of Motorstorm (without online) will be released next week.  The US version with online won't be out until March at least.

9954  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 -- Keep it or sell it? on: December 08, 2006, 03:54:46 PM
If it were me I would probably sell it for a few reasons.  First, it seems like you probably have lots of other gaming to do with the Wii, 360 and PC and there isn't quite enough unique content to justify the purchase yet (to me).  I also avoid the launch hardware game of Russian roulette.  

More importantly,  perhaps, is the fact that it would please your wife to be able to buy you surprises instead of you buying this for yourself right now.

Well, don't feel too bad if you don't triple your regular score.  There is a slight difference between moving a remote back and forth and hitting a button and doing the approach with correct movement and release of a ball of up to 16 pounds.  icon_wink
