2567  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Which baseball game is for me??? on: March 10, 2005, 04:14:18 AM
I`m looking for this on Xbox. I`m not a real baseball fan, but for some reason baseball games have always been fun for me. I`m looking at both MLB and MVP. MVP has 720p support and I`ve never used that yet on my TV...so that`s a real point of interest. They both support Live!, but I`m not sure how good each are on Live!. Does anyone have any comments on any of this? MLB is $20.00 and MVP is $29.99. Thanks.

I`m running this in 480p mode and it looks like I explained earlier. I do play without crosshairs and it`s great that way IMO. You really should give it a chance, it really opens up into a beast of a game!

I can't even tell where the targeting cursor is half the time.  


Targeting cursor? U mean you arent using the iron sights?

Keep in mind you are still in the "tutorial" phase.  that mg was set up like that to teach you how they work and how to deal with them.  Later on in the game specificly in "Buying The Farm" you wil be wishing there was a nice alley for you to go down.


 I`m also confused by some of these statements. The graphics aren`t hl2 , h2 or doom3 graphics, but they aren`t bad. I have a high end pc and I play alot and I`m not bummed by the graphics in this game. Sure the textures aren`t great and a sky here or there is kinda ugly, but then there`s alot that looks good to me. It`s not super bright, which I like. It shouldn`t look bright really, it looks like I think it should...Gritty and whatnot. There isn`t a targeting cursor by default, and it`s best that way I think. And he is right, that`s basically the tutorial phase, and it REALLY opens up. This game flat out rocks. I`ve played all of the wwII PC shooters and this thing IMO, is better. And really fresh in comparision. Good stuff it is!!!

Like I said, not impressed.


 Steam is far from perfect. But,what it does well, it does really well IMHO. I hate tracking down patches etc for games all the time. That`s where steam really shines.

I didn`t really have a hard time with it at all, and I`mnot great at games or anything. The save system is silly, and I don`t really like it BUT...it didn`t ruin the game at all for me. To each his/her own.
2573  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FINALLY! Brothers in Arms Reviewed! on: March 06, 2005, 06:19:47 PM
I`m still enjoying this lots too. The sp is great, I`m not very far into it yet though. The MP is also loads of fun, with the right people. And that issue of server full on live! is a pain in the ass, but I`ve only seen it once or twice. So I`m thinking you had bad luck if you tried for a half hour without getting in. Tonight I`m too busy to play, but I`m going to make sure I play more of this soon,lots more of it, and real soon. Great game so far.

Wow, it's all screen. And it does make the DS look a little clunky. Props to the designers.


 While I do think the PSP has a nice design and is small. Even with the DS having 2 screens, I still wouldn`t call it clunky :wink: .

I would... the SP was such a great design, it's as if the DS designers looked at it and said "OK, let's do the OPPOSITE!"  :lol:


 The DS is like the SP, just bigger really. I like the design. I can`t imagine how it would/could work any better really.

Attadude, you really don`t like the graphics? I have a high pc and play all the high end games at high settings and still think BIA has good visuals. Like I said the textures aren`t the best I`ve seen, but not the worst by far either. And when I look closely at stuff I can nitpick it, and the graphics aren`t perfect. But, when just relaxing and playing the game I often find that the visuals do a good job of looking gritty and dirty while still having some nice effects and whatnot going off all around me. Overall, I`d still say I`m impressed by the visuals. Not so much as the tech, but the art behind. What TV are yo on? I`m on a 32inch sony trini HD, and this game runs 480p and it looks nice. I`m glad you`re obviously still enjoying the game, and to each his own, but I`m just confused by you thinking the visuals are crap. Oh, well. Enjoy this game everyone.

 Eco. You have live! right? If so send me an friend request and we can team up some time. The MP stuff is very fun when you apply some tactics. Great stuff.
2582  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FINALLY! Brothers in Arms Reviewed! on: March 03, 2005, 10:07:01 AM
Wow, this game rocks. I played for two hours or so of the single player and I spend some time with the multiplayer too.
   
  The graphics are rather impressive as a whole. I`ve seen better textures before, but they certainly aren`t bad. Just a bit muddy. It doesn`t even bother me, but I wanted to let you guys know. The trees and grass all look and move realistically in the wind. Where bullets hit dust clouds pop up. The light bloom lighting(if that`s what it is) is really nice and not overly done at all. Explosions and fire seem to look really great too. The physics are impressive so far too. Like I said as a whole, the graphics are really nice.
   
 The sound is also just as good. Everything sounds real to me. Bullets  hitting the ground,the fence, the metal etc. It helps point out that your getting shot at, and from where. The music is good too so far. The voice acting is a mixed bag. I haven`t really heard enough to say how mixed and which way. It`s certainly not taking anything away from the game. Overall I`m really impressed by the sound so far as well.
 
   The gameplay is loads of fun in both sp and mp. The ai is really solid. Beyond solid. It`s not perfect, but really seems to do it`s job. Since the ai is in both sp and mp, this makes both gamemodes really work for me. If you find a good person to team up with, the mp is really rewarding, for me at least. And the sp game has you doing one fun thing and right on to another.
 
   There`s a story. This isn`t COD which had no story(I still loved this game though). But it isn`t as story driven as half-life or thief or something of that nature. It obviously has more story than any other WWII game though, so it seems.

 As you can tell I like this game so far. I`ll post more after I play more. Later.

I justed wanted to you guys to know(you probably already do though) that compusas website isn`t very trustable. The website says the one store somewhat near me does have it, yet the guy on the phone said they do not :roll: . I`m not going to drive all over the place in a snowstorm to save 12 bucks. I`m assuming they do have it, and the system just lags...but that`s chance I`m not going to take. Just wanted to give the heads up.

After days or weeks of seeing this post and seeing noone reply, I`ll chime in. :wink:
 I just realised a few years ago everytime I bought a game(well, not everytime but...) my wife would go buy something from the gap or something else in the mall. Then we would go out to dinner etc. By the time we got home and I installed the game I realised we had spent...

 $50.00 game of some sort
 $20-50.00ish on something else at the mall
 $25-50.00 dinner
 
 Heh,  went out for a $50 game and spent 100 bucks...WTF?!? Heh. Needless to say she doesn`t go with me to pick up games anymore :roll: . We can`t be spending money to feed and cloth her :wink: .

 But honestly, we have noticed that we are better off just avoiding the mall. The plaza stores are better, park closer, in and out faster, and you don`t spend money on "other" things as easy. For instance I`m going to the mall in a few minutes to pick up a game(alone :wink: )and I`ve already decided to get a hot pretzel. Tongue  Like I said I try to not frequently go to the mall, but the plaza store doesn`t have what I want! :evil:

I`m heading out in the next hour to grab this. I`m trying to wait a bit to see if compusa gets it in. It`s on sale for 37.99 there compared to 49.99! The website says they have it for sale for delivary, but the two stores around here don`t have it yet. I`m assuming they do, and they just haven`t scanned the boxes and opened up thta stuff yet. I`ll tell you guys if I do infact grab it from compusa or not. Either way it`s fine, I certainly didn`t plan on getting it for 37.99, but that would be nice. Although the compusa is about 15 miles away and the EB is about 3 or 4 and it`s snowing like crazy outside. So I`ll see where I grab it from :wink: .

BTW, here`s the linky to compusa http://www.compusa.com/products/product_info.asp?product_code=318452&pfp=SEARCH
 It appears to in-store pickup only though. Fine by me, just wanted to let you guys know.

2598  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FINALLY! Brothers in Arms Reviewed! on: March 02, 2005, 09:58:35 AM
9.5 Presentation
Overall it's a very convincing and exciting production. The perfect blend of history and fun.
9.0 Graphics
The look of the game is undeniably authentic. Character models are the high point here but the environments and effects are also amazing.
9.0 Sound
Very immersive. The chaos of the battlefield never seemed so near. Voice work is good but the actual dialogue is hit or miss.
9.5 Gameplay
The action is intense and engaging. You'll find the tactical elements are simple to use and are well integrated into the overall shooter format.  
9.5 Lasting Appeal
The missions vary a little each time you play them and that's enough reason to try the campaign more than once. Multiplayer is a blast.
9.3 OVERALL
(out of 10 / not an average) -IGN



Gameplay-9.5
Fantastic presentation, solid controls, and a story that rivals most motion pictures. The accuracy to the events and weapons provides an authentic feel that no other WWII game has managed. The multiplayer mode is a refreshing change from the typical deathmatches we see so often.

Graphics-9.2
Even with its framerate hiccups and few graphical anomalies, this is a beauty to play through. The soldier models are some of the most detailed to date and eerily lifelike.

Audio-9.3
The motion picture-like score complements the gameplay to perfection. The voice-acting is believable thanks to the edgy script. Turn up the 5.1 system because this is how a war game should sound.

Longevity-9.1
The single-player campaign should take you anywhere from 10-15 hours depending on the difficulty. There is plenty of incentive to play through at tougher levels with tons of unlockables. The multiplayer modes further extend the replay value.


Next-gen-9.1
While there have been many WWII FPS games before, none have managed to provide a more realistic representation than Brothers in Arms. The fresh multiplayer mode shows that FPS games aren’t just about deathmatches.
Overall 9.4-Teamxbox


 I simply can`t wait. I`ll not going to sleep much tonight! Tongue
