Halloween lights are nothing new; they’ve been sold around here for a few years.  I kind of like them, purple lights are much easier on the eyes than rapidly blinking multicolored lights.

1125  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Star Wars The Force Unleashed @ Target $ 14.98 worth it? on: September 11, 2009, 01:13:43 AM
That’s unfortunate since the Junk planet is the worst level in the game in my opinion.

Still this is a steal at $15.

My EYES!  Why would anyone tile a background logo?  That is painful on a widescreen monitor.

Medieval 2 is definitely worth $10 but overall those prices don’t seem that remarkable.
1127  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: Catan expansions. on: September 07, 2009, 02:37:51 AM
I have the 5-6 player expansion and have played it a grand total of one time.  To be honest it just seemed to make the game endless.  It was two hours before any of us had any sort of lead and because the game moved so slowly early on most people had started to lose interest.  I ended up locked in a corner the whole game and ended up winning buying nothing but development cards.
1128  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mini Ninjas video trailer on: August 31, 2009, 06:58:07 AM
I really wish games would stop incorporating repetitive motions into them to do simple things.  How is shaking a controller or pushing a button down repeatedly more fun than pressing a button and having it do what you want it to?

As for the demo in general I really wanted to like it but found it mediocre at best.  It could probably be fun for the right person but there are far better 3rd person platformer/fighters.

I love games that can be registered on Steam.  I purchased both Defense Grid and Empire on D2D and activated them on Steam.

 Also, really enjoyed this one.  They did a great job giving the AI assistant a personality.

I like the ease of Steam.  If I get a new computer down the line I can install all my games from a single place without having to worry about swapping CD’s or remembering CD keys.
1139  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Direct2Drive: Empire Total War $24.95 on: August 16, 2009, 10:53:23 PM
Well I decided to try it and it does allow you to download directly from Steam.  Once purchased it took me to a page containing my CD Key and I input it into the Add Steam game field.  Currently downloading!
1140  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Direct2Drive: Empire Total War $24.95 on: August 16, 2009, 04:44:34 PM
Has anyone tried to activate this version on steam?  I prefer to keep all my digital games through one place and I see that Empire retail can be.
1141  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Steam: Trine 25% off on: August 14, 2009, 05:54:04 AM
Trine has 15 levels.  So far its been taking me 40 minutes to an hour to get through each so a 10-15 hour game.  Not bad in my opinion.  A lot of the fun for me has been trying to get all the experience potions and treasures to level up my characters.  As the game goes on you gain new abilities and I've been having a blast just building towers with my wizard to get around. 

Highly recommended.

Given how vast the ocean is I think it’s possible that something like a humanoid mermaid could exist.  That said I think the chances that said creature would be even remotely attractive to humans is highly unlikely.  Things that live in the ocean tend to be scaly, fat, deadly and/or smell bad.

1150  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What is /your/ Top 25(ish) PC (Computer) games of all time? on: August 07, 2009, 08:24:34 PM
X-com
Diablo II
Thief II
System Shock 2
Starcraft
Fallout
Myth
Quake 2
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War
Dungeon Keeper 2
Total Annihilation
Stalker
Baldurs Gate 2
Planescape: Torment
Half-Life
Deus Ex
Alpha Centauri
World of Warcraft
Gothic II
World of Goo (yes I’m serious)
Simcity2000
Grim Fandango
Medieval II: Total War
Unreal Tournament
Rainbow Six

Problem with these lists is that what they actually measure differs based on the criteria.  Simcity might have been revolutionary but I would never play it over Simcity2000.  For that reason a game or sequel that did nothing new but perfected what it attempted would still rate higher in my list.  The exception being a sequel that took the game away from the greatness of a predecessor.
1151  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dawn of War 2: Impressions and free soundtrack! on: August 05, 2009, 03:31:42 AM
Also, in the campaign losing a mission isn’t always a bad thing.  You retain your experience and loot which means if you play the same mission again it SHOULD be easier.  The exception to the rule is if you’re playing on one of the higher difficulties and you lose repeatedly the enemy starts to build up in strength.

T Without that bias, the remake was slightly better for being more twisted.

1155  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Tim Burton-Alice In Wonderland on: July 25, 2009, 05:52:14 PM
I actually really liked Burtons Charlie and the Chocolate Factory EXCEPT for Depp.  The original Willy Wonka remains an all time favorite character of mine but the thing in the new movie was a travesty.  I have a bad feeling that the Mad Hatter is going to be a repeat.
1156  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Trine on: July 21, 2009, 12:23:38 AM
I had a lot of fun with the demo but I just can’t bring myself to pay $30 for a short game that is bound to be on sale for $20 or less in a month’s time.  I know the price difference is trivial but I can’t help myself.

Ok, that was annoying.  I had to click 5 links just to get to their website so I could see what the games were.  For everyone else!

Meh.

Blu-Ray will never take off as long as new prices are $30 and 'sale' prices are $20. 

Especially when they're not worth it if you don't have a 42" or bigger TV.
I have around 20 blue rays and except for buying the Dark Knight when it first came out I’ve never paid more than $16 on any of them.

I have a larger set now but even when I had a 32inch I could still see a definite difference in quality.  I suppose it really depends on how far away you sit though.  HDTVs are made for closer viewing than traditional sets.

Nice.  I always end up playing Soldier despite hating the class because no one else on my team wants to.  Hopefully this will mean a few more people are willing to take the role.
1160  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Review] Star Wars: The Force Unleashed on: July 09, 2009, 12:42:07 AM
I wonder if I played a different version of this game than you guys…

I picked up the PS3 version a couple weeks ago and loved almost the whole game; it is actually the first PS3 game I’ve finished since I bought the system a year ago.  The only two levels I didn’t like were the early Junk Plant level and the Star Destroyer Stage.  Junk planet was just boring and had some annoying jumping segments and the Star Destroyer took me like 10 tries to beat.

Killing enemies never seemed much of a problem because almost everything in the game can be killed in one or two charged lightning saber slashes.  The only exception was the giant troopers but my force lighting/energy pool was high enough that I could shock them to the point where one saber slash would kill them.  Learning the combos really helped and most of the time I could clear a room in just a couple minutes.
