There were definitely mods on the old xbox that allowed cheating in mp on live.  Not sure on 360, haven't been following them.

The appeal is growing in power and ability... leaping from building to building while dispensing death to all (sorry about that civvies... collateral damage you know)... having cars that change to match your ability level... mass explosions... shooting tires out and watching the cars flip off the bridge... insane gunfights with masses of gang hit squads.... climbing to the top of a 1100ft building... then jumping off... or getting blown off by a 'friend'... etc...etc...etc.

Early on it can be a bit overwhelming, but once you take out a couple of gang bosses and level a bit it is like being a superpowered cop.

But yeah... boring...  ninja

I think the little mechanic of the different colored experience "balls"  flying to you from your kills should be used by more games, especially MMORPGs.  There is something special about blowing up a group of baddies and having all that experience gained fly to you. 

I always chuckle to myself and throw my head back with my hands on my hips... mwahahaha, MORE POWER! then breathe deeply as the orbs merge with my body increasing my skills with a bang.

I saw in a video some dude bunny hopping. ugh.

Trust me - that's not a strategy that will result in lasting success.

sadly people do it a lot in this game.  It seems everyone's first reaction is to jump and then shoot down at you.  Really kills the game a bit for me.  (and it is effective)

I never understood why Halo has suceeded.  The level repetiveness just ruins the game for me.  It's too cookie cutter and shows no creativity or uniqueness.  Even the enemies are limited as far as variety goes.  I think the few things that really grabs people are the multiplayer, sound, character and the weapons.

I know it's a breakout game for consoles, but translated on to a PC, it's very mediocre.  been there done that. 

I think multi is why it's done so well, not the campaign mode

edit: I didn't read everything first! frown

I'll add this then, here's the emblem I've been using in H3.

I don't know specifically, but my understanding is that it involves a modded console, setting the songs up using PC software and reburning a new image of the game.  You effectively replace one of the existing songs with a custom one.  The animations for the song is the same as the replaced one and, as you noticed, the guitar track isn't separated.

That's correct, you basically create a new disk with replaced songs.

I may pick these up eventually- I hear there are some funny mistakes that they didn't catch like Dr. Bruce Banner talking to your party with the Hulk in it.

That happens all the time even without the expansion pack.

Since Hulk isn't playable until you get the pack, how is this possible?

Seems very nice on the controller.  I'm still getting the wheel but I don't think the difference is going to be as noticable with this game as it was last gen.

I'm pretty bummed about no in-cockpit view though.

I'm loving the feel of the cars and racing.  I'm very disappointed in the amount of jaggies though, I'm on a 1080p HD monitor and the jaggies are about the same as a ps2 game. frown  Textures look great, framerates are great, just those damned sparkling pixels! slywink

That's a funny picture, but I'll have to be the spoilsport and say it was a bad idea.  You could easily kill yourself falling that far unprepared, and I do believe you'd be quite unprepared when you wake up that way.

This is the first game in many years that I've had to restrain myself from snapping the dvd in two.

The stupid chandelier sequence is annoying as hell.  If you wait until it says Now! you're too late, if I swing earlier, I'm too early.  To make it all just a touch more frustrating there is a 20 second loading screen and unskippable 'witty' comment scene before it so it burns into your mind.

i played my first game minutes after it was released.  Very fun.

I noticed there is a second skin available under options that animates the game board and pieces instead of it looking like a boardgame.  Interesting that they went with the simple graphics by default and the flashy ones as the option, seems backwards from most games these days but a good call.

I may pick this game up if we can get a regular group of guys playing it.  I can't stand the single player on the game though so I don't really want to bite the bullet unless we can get some decent coop going.  Between all the other good coop/vs games we have we might have to start a schedule slywink

I tried out the demo of Pinball FX (only get the Speed Machine table) and I thought it was pretty good but to me it seemed as if the ball was playing just a little bit too fast or something.  Nobody else mentioned that, am I the only one who thought this?  I also like the old school spring loaded ball launchers, not the "hit a button and blast at full speed" kind. 

Agree on both points.  The ball does zoom to fast and I wish there was a SLOW option somewhere.  Most pinball sims have this.  It may affect gamerscore or something, who knows, but I have a hell of a time hitting the upper flipper in time.

Also, spring load is the way to go, but they do seem to be a thing of the past.

I read the Gamespot review, which wasn't especially favorable.  One of the gripes they seem to have is with wonky physics and not very believable ball movement.  I think they're crazy to the point that I wonder if they're playing an earlier build or something.  I really think the designers nailed the ball.  It has spin, the speed seems to match how it's hit (I wish it moved a little more slowly, or that I could hit with a little more power sometimes, but it doesn't seem unrealistic at all), the graphics on the ball are sharp and help gameplay with feedback on speed.  Really, what are they talking about.

I wish the nudging had a little more finesse as well.

The graphics are bland yet confusing on the tables.  That's probably my biggest gripe.  Overall, I'm very happy with it and look forward to more tables.



It does seem like the speed is a little fast but once you get used to it seems about right I already scored over 1,000,000 on speed machine. icon_biggrin

1,000,000?  I just got my butt whipped by a guy that got 700,000,000+ on Speed frown

Loving Eets!

The pinball game's camera angles aren't winning me over, but every pinball game has its own quirks. I'll keep trying the demo and see if it grows on me more. I think I'm so used to Metroid Pinball, it's hard to adjust. Tongue

There are 4-5 different views to choose from.  I didn't like the first few but there was one that was just like you're standing at the table and I liked it.

Anyone have an estimated release?
