If anyone knows of any " all in one" placed to get tips on this game I'd love to hear about them.

Srry to hear you have to go to pittsburgh;). I'm in Cleveland, it's not much better here...

I got this last night and wow! It is living, breathing art. Absolutely amazing so far. I've heard it's only 2 to 3 hrs long, but meant to be replayed. Fine with me!

I have to agree with Harpua, it's much too early to start predicting success or failure. I'm not sure why gamers have a tendency to label things failures so prematurely, as if a system not selling astronomical numbers automatically makes it a flop. Let's see what Sony has up its sleeves, they've got a wealth of phenomenal in-house teams that could be working on a killer app as we speak.

We have a winner!!! slywink

Therein lies the difference:  you think the launch lineup is incredible and it "blows you out of the water", while I (and others, I suspect) only find it mildly compelling.


yep, my big draw was Sheboygan 2: Dividend of Ten and that hasn't been as stellar as it could have been.  I can easily afford one, but what's the point of grabbing it for nothing?  now the Game Heaven presentation should have some potential, even if Vice City Nights was fake.

as for doom and gloom, it's a console launch, so it's going to be out there.   just accept it and have another 6 beers or so.

I will take you up on those beers. I work in a brewery, what do you expect!?!;) generally speaking, this console looks to be headed in a great direction. That is all.slywink

I think it is nearly comical that people are either A: disappointed with the launch lineup or B: are "doom n gloom" about the systems lifespan/ quality of games/ success etc. really!?! Are we that spoiled?

This thing has BLOWN me out of the water so far. That's the important part..."so far". If it starts out great, can't it only get better?

The vita is a beast. Also, it has answered the prayers of many. Six months ago people said they wanted to have a console experience on a handheld. Now in some circles, that is considered a bad thing... eek

Fucking funny stuff.

Rant over..

Therein lies the difference:  you think the launch lineup is incredible and it "blows you out of the water", while I (and others, I suspect) only find it mildly compelling.  I happened to be in a position where I could afford one at the moment, and purchased it mainly on the hope that there will be far better things to come.  There's no question the system is a beast, but without a library of great games, it's dead in the water...hence the wait-and-see approach from many gamers.

I guess my point was it is WAY too early to even have negative thoughts on these matters...

It was a toss up, but I think tonight it's all me2. Kingdoms of amalur doesn't have a sequel yet. It can wait.

I have not.. Recently. I played a little bit of it right when it launched... Didn't really grab me. It probably is really cheap now though.. Also I've been playing alot of mariokart 7, wipeout 2048 and hotshots golf on Vita. I will still do cod if need be;). Especially the coop that I love and noone else does..

ME2 is so unpolished it's not funny. Embarrassingly bad bugs and glitches. Spelling errors, missing words, someone's head was backwards and glitching during a cut-scene were just the highlights so far.

The lady that wanted a 'skip combat' option? I'm kinda agreeing with her here.  icon_neutral

What platform? Ps3 version really isn't like that...at all..

Pretend you are a swinger and have lots of fake conversations on the phone about it. Wait, you might really just hear MORE things you really don't want to hear.. I'm sensing this plan could easily backfire..

Well even though I just got a vita after just getting a 3ds...after reading all this me3 crap @ work and here and EVERYWHERE! I am finally going to play some me2. Loved it so far, jut got superdistracted!;)
1618  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: [Vita] Motorstorm RC - It's FREE for the Vita! on: March 07, 2012, 05:13:44 PM
Controls take a while to get used to. Other that that, pretty awesome little title.
1619  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: [Vita] Motorstorm RC - It's FREE for the Vita! on: March 07, 2012, 04:10:23 AM
I know this doesn't compete with me3 but, I'm still finishing 2!!! Anywho.. I'm confused. With this version can I also play it on my ps3? I knew I read that, but it this free version gimped? I'm fine with it either way, free is free;).

Didn't know if I should put that here or for the vita folks in the other forum. Spread the word!;)
1623  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Router question for a linksys and a vita. on: March 04, 2012, 07:54:38 AM
So I had to put my vita into a DMz to make wipeout work online. Everything else seems fine online with it. So a few questions.

If that address on my vita is in the dmz, is that address going to change and make the dmz no longer "valid",if you will?

Anything else I need to know about this sort of thing. I've been a pc gamer and console gamer for along while. I really never HAD to deal with this kind of thing. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Off to play some wipeout!
1624  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: [Vita] Hot Shots Golf on: February 29, 2012, 08:52:45 PM
This is the first hotshots I've played & im thrilled with it. Mp is fun. Tons of unlockables/ content. Just super fun. Another great launch title with harsh reviews. Don't get the vita launch title hate. Best launch lineup ever IMHO.
1625  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The 2012 Health Improvement Thread on: February 29, 2012, 06:53:32 AM
I just found this thread and browsed through it. Great idea. I need to start changing things drastically. I'm about to turn 36, I smoke A pack a day, drink roughly 6 beers a day, and eat like I want to die. I will not stop eating until all food is gone... Wow, I'm a loser.slywink funny part is, I'm all but 165lb... Beer belly not good though.

Ack, I started two separate nearly identical threads. I'm not an asshole, just not too bright sometimes;). Also, I'll play vita hotshots!!!!

Awesome. Sorry I didn't respond for a while. Vita is taking my life over! Id is ruperT?
1628  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: Pokemon Black/White 2 announced on: February 29, 2012, 06:31:58 AM
Everytime I see black and white I think of lionheads game... I loved the first and would have enjoyed the second if it weren't for the bugginess I came across... So, sorry to hijack this, but I want a b&w 3!!!
1629  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: Uncharted G.A. Reviewers a bit tough on this one? on: February 28, 2012, 05:36:27 PM
I also read that about hotshots. I freaking live that game as well so far. And you're right, knocking a game for it playing like its real life counterpart...

And after more uncharted, it's still pretty damn impressive!
1630  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Uncharted G.A. Reviewers a bit tough on this one? on: February 28, 2012, 05:49:38 AM
I always loved the uncharted series. Three really great games. So maybe I'm biased... Some reviews I've read on this are extremely beating it down. I'm three hrs in and I'm loving the hell out of it. Phenomenal graphics, great music score and sound design and the story and gameplay are solid. Anyone else confused by the negative reviews?
1631  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (02/27) on: February 27, 2012, 11:44:54 PM
Nothing. Absolutely nothing! I've literally purchased a 3ds with 4 games, a vita with four as well, countless ps3 games and a iMac in the last few months... If I buy anything this week it will be wife punch me in the face time...
1632  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: PS Vita, Impressions! on: February 27, 2012, 05:33:31 AM
I also decided to chime in as I fell prey to the forum effect and other outside influences...

So far this thing is awesome.

Screen, graphics, audio, and the craftsm :nod:anship are all really impressive. I have hotshots, uncharted and wipeout. I haven't touched hotshots yet only bc uncharted is stealing my time. Everything I've seen so far is really topnotch. But, really those animations in uc are sick. Did they use some of the same assets from the ps3 games? It sure looks like it...Gonna try out hotshots in a bit with my buddy in colorado!

Now a few not picks...

The right analog stick placement is really too close to the x button.
The wifi signal is as noted above not as good as other devices. I've read that in numerous places as well...
The charging symbol is way too big...okay, now I'm just being an ass and mocking;).
Obviously battery life...

Other than those few things it's all a way big thumbs up!
1633  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Calling all late nighters! Bf3 player need apply. on: February 20, 2012, 07:25:03 AM
Okay, I've been playing bf3 only in spurts. My friends no longer play on a regular basis and I want to more often. I enjoy long walks on the beach, good beer, and a good team effort while only there to have fun. Psn name is Harpua33. Please don't make me play by myself. Seriously, um, yeah.slywink
1634  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Kingdoms of Amalur Impressions on: February 20, 2012, 07:20:37 AM
I'm loving this game. It's a great balance of most things that I adore about RPGs. If my buddy doesn't want to play battlefield in back in this horse.

1637  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Resident Evil: Revelations on: February 19, 2012, 05:49:06 PM
It's kind of funny that one of the only knocks on this game is something I'm enjoying about it. I actually like the actiony sequences that are littered through the game. It, for me at least, helps the pacing. A near perfect blend of old school re and new re!

Let's just hope they DO fix the ps3 lag this time around... It sounds like it, but... I really just shelved
This one until that is addressed. I have to many games to play that DO work.
