Awesome thanks for the impressions Frogstar.

I just posted that on OO Gratch. Now I am concerned. I really don't want to wait for the PC version though. icon_cry

Can't say initial impressions are too good (demo). Seems very rough. I do need to play it some more, but so far I am not overly impressed.

Hmm, if Blu-Ray is going to be the main format, I am one step closer to getting a PS3. I only have a 720p/1080i TV though. icon_cry

I know gamespot typically score games lower than everywhere else, but 7.9 is kinda shocking

Yeah they gave Crackdown something like a 7.9 too, under rated I think. I really think you need to read Gamespots reviews to get a true feel for whether the game is for you and not go off the rating too much.

I will be buying Motorstorm as soon as I get a PS3. They have a few in stock around town here, and everytime I see one, I have to remind myself to wait. smile

Yeah, cause one 7.9 > all the other 8's, 9's and 10's this game has recieved.   Roll Eyes

To be fair, the game has an 85% on Gamerankings after 14 reviews, so it wasn't the only 7.9. Anyway IMHO Gamespot is much more reuputable than IGN.

One of the local EB employees was bragging to a co-worker how he beat Crackdown a week before it came out. Yet another reason I won't go there, I am not paying full price for a used game. He wants to play, it take home a used copy when they get one.

Considering that Ron can do things like host the C&C demo (1.2GB or so) without any issue, in addition to all the movies that pop up on the front page from time to time, bandwith is the least of his concerns. biggrin

Ron's hosting the demo? Wow, GT rocks. smile
2893  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Is it worthwhile purchasing a TV that doesn't support 1080p? on: February 27, 2007, 03:55:16 AM
I wouldn't buy one myself, Blu-ray/HD-DVD are both 1080p, why buy a TV that 3-4 years from now won't be able to support the mainstream resolution? Especially since the PS3, and eventually 360 games will be 1080p. Pay a little more and get a TV that will support the new technology in my book.

I must not be good because I find it kinda tough on default  crybaby

How far into it are you?  When I started out it was a lot more difficult than it should've been because I hadn't yet realized the importance of taking cover, and the way that your armor recharges if you lay low for a few seconds.  Once I got that concept down, the boss assaults became much more strategic (and doable).

I prefer it on the default difficulty just because I like being an unstoppable badass and taking everyone and everything out with my bare hands. I should get driving xp for kicking a truck into a bunch of thugs, killing them.

+1, on easiest it's fun and not frustrating. I still die on occasion, usually from multiple grenades at once. I do wish, once I cleaned something out, that new thugs wouldn't keep appearing. I was trying to find the switches for a particular boss, and the amount of baddies that kept coming in was getting irritating.

Well it does unfortunately sound like a rental for me since you guys are saying 8-10 hours playtime.

It depends on how driven you are. I have probably 5-6 hours in, and I only cleared out the first gang so far. I have been driving around, exploring, and working on stats. Been having fun just doing that myself.
2897  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gamespot Drops a 7.8 on Crackdown on: February 26, 2007, 12:21:30 AM
Loving this game, having a heck of a lot fo fun with it. Yeah it has it flaws, but it is very fun. Played all day, with most of that spent just exploring.

I guess it is just human nature to want to see things fall from grace, especially things that you can't have or afford or whatever the reason is.

Bit of a stretch, don't you think?  Poking fun at Sony for some of it's ridiculous marketing and PR gaffes has nothing to do with whether or not people can afford the system. 

Sorry, but nearly everyone that pokes fun at the PS3 or says they are not getting one, ends with saying I can't spend $500 on it or it's too much or something along those lines. I don't see how $500 is all that much more than the $400 that the 360 costs and you get a lot more with it. I mean, if you can afford the 360, the extra $100 isn't going to break the bank, is it?


Let me put it another way, I can't afford $500 or $600 for a system that looks pretty bland so far. I will get one down the road, but right now, not one game excites me enough to get one at that price.

I haven't turned on my 360 for probably 2 months until I got Crackdown yesterday. I went to check to see what was new on Live and was very disappointed. While I don't need a new great game every week, I think they could do better then they have. I really just want Worms. Please give me Worms. slywink

Hopefully they will have a reasonable price for the 120gig drive.

The 20 gig HD was what, $100? That is far from reasonable, so my hopes aren't high for a reasonable price on the 120 gig model.

Details please about the lift test!  I have never played a game like this, but it sounds like the kind of game that would require a good, hefty manual for someone like me. 

Bought the CE at Target yesterday. It is heavy. Includes soundtrack, map, strategy guide, and manual.

Manual is 143 pages, full color, small font. Just started reading it, but looks good so far. Back few pages are charts.

Strat guide is 102 pages, full color, small font. Looks great, plus it has a few side bars of historical stuff. Looks pretty neat.

Haven't even installed it yet, but the packaging is truly impressive.

I kind of like the channel. Although I am not playing my Wii much right now (the games will come), I like a little break in between games. The poll channel is quick little diversion and kind of amusing.

I really like the News Channel though. It's very easy to use and its cool getting a quick over view of headlines. When I do turn on my Wii, I usually go straight there to get a round up of what is happening, but then again I am a news junkie.

Requires you to have a fileplanet account to download them and they don't play in Media Player.

Not a good start.

Is long has the game has decent ones, I am ok with that.

Seems like the more upscale, or trendy stores all have lifetime refund policies, while the stores for poor people tend to be the most harsh on refunds. 

Because you are paying for those policies at the upscale places probably. I love REI, but they are hardly cheap for instance.

Walmart will take anything back. I know because twice I have bought something that was quite obviously used, a lot.
