I've been really enjoying Dr Doom except that he seems to yell 'Crap!' every time he jumps

Dont' forget that people can tune cars and paint them then auction them online for other people to buy.

As bad as it is, I think all copies of Spiderman 3 need to be dumped in a landfill right next to E.T.   icon_wink
While I wouldn't suggest it for any good game awards, the 360 version is quite playable.  You've just been screwed by Wii!

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.
9405  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Car porn (Forza 2) on: May 10, 2007, 02:18:06 PM
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
9406  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Project Witches (Working Title) X360 on: May 09, 2007, 02:47:55 PM
maybe it's 'fully interactive' slywink

Actually I did read that they were going with possibly an AO rating on this title, I'll see if I can't find the article that I buried since it was just another T&A game  ninja

Love graw2, but rarely can find enough games to warrant spending 10 bucks.

psst, you'd find more games if you accept the invites on the planned nights to play 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.

I loved the head to head on this game in the arcade growing up and then it disappeared!  I'm really looking forward to it and hope the controls are ok, think it had the dial for aiming in the arcade.
9414  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Spider-Man 3 review discussion on: May 05, 2007, 11:26:17 PM
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.
9415  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: XBLA Triple Shot this week - Catan, Millipede, and Centipede [56k] on: May 02, 2007, 06:26:46 PM
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.
9416  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: [360] Marvel Ultimate Alliance Coop. on: May 02, 2007, 04:31:36 AM
K, I picked this up.  A bit upset that I can't combine local with online multi but I'm up for some games.

I ended up winning the pre-release and got my 10 packs, plus my sister, niece and nephew all got me 1 pack each plus the EA card.  New set is pretty deep.  Now I gotta figure out where the game is going so I do well at Nationals @ Gencon

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

I am all over this for some multi.  This is one game that I'll definitely play coop for smile   ninja

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.
9424  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360]Tenchu Z on: April 25, 2007, 04:32:15 PM
The video is available on the marketplace and looks pretty amazing to me.

I loved the series and can't wait to see some multiplayer.

Anyone have an estimated release?
9425  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Need a volunteer this evening for testing.... on: April 23, 2007, 02:26:16 PM
I should be available from now until whenever.  I'll power on my 360 just in case you need me.

Sadly I won't be able to play all weekend. frown  However I'll be on tonight, and starting next week I'll be on in big screen high def glory for the first time.

Had a good time guys, looks like they nerfed grenades yet again.  Tiny blast radius now.

oh, and Tromik, stop shooting me! slywink

Cya all tomorrow if I can.  Sadly I'm out of town this weekend.  I get a 42" LCD delivered then have to go out of town before I can use it frown

They also 'fixed' the accuracy with the mp7, mp9 and the mtar weapons of doom.
9432  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Rainbow 6:Vegas player pack red up. on: April 18, 2007, 07:22:31 PM
A few little adjustments in the auto upgrade including the warning when you start that online experience may change.
9433  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Rainbow 6:Vegas player pack red up. on: April 18, 2007, 03:24:01 PM
I believe there is a gold pack on the way as well with the rest of the content.  So far the new game mode absolutely rocks, haven't tried assassination yet.  Most of the maps are very nice, but it seems the Border Town Redux has a very imbalanced spawn scenario.
9434  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: GRAW2 Multiplayer possibility on: April 18, 2007, 02:58:58 PM
GRAW messed up my R6 aiming!  Now I have to repractice for tonight in R6
9435  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Rainbow 6:Vegas player pack red up. on: April 18, 2007, 01:10:44 PM
I'm grabbing it now and have a mp post in the mp forum.

The new maps and game modes were released today. I'll be hosting a server tonight. Just msg me if you want an invite.
9437  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: GRAW2 Multiplayer possibility on: April 17, 2007, 11:33:10 AM
It was pretty fun, but we mostly just did coop.  I'm not a huge fan of killing AI, but I do like working together.  Achievements mean exactly zilch to me.

don't forget to grab the free map download from the 'exclusive content' option on the main menu.

If it makes you feel better, I played the game for about 3 weeks when it came out. then didn't play from new year's to about 5 days ago.  I've been busy doing other things, like a life. slywink

Basically this game just 'clicked' for me and I was pretty good at it and really enjoy the game.  Or perhaps I really enjoyed the game and that's why I was good at it, not sure.
