ninja gaiden sigma 2 - because someone up here had to smile ...

I'm working on my review for it.   It's totally worth it - you won't be disappointed.

Funny, I downloaded the demo thinking it was something new, a sequel to the first Sigma game. Quickly discovered I'd already played it as 'Ninja Gaiden 2' on my 360. So it seems to be another of those 'ports' where they add in some additional content but I can't imagine there's any reason to get it again if one already has the 360 version, yes? icon_neutral

I played Katamari Damacy on the PS2 and mostly enjoyed it, but that was enough for me. Never felt any desire to do more of the same, even after trying the HD 'Forever' version demo.  icon_neutral

I have no idea about the 'legality' of any of this but I used to work for ADT in their IT department and at one point was given a sign to take home where it has happily sat in my front yard for years. When my insurance company came out to appraise the house, he specifically asked me if I had an actual alarm system or just the sign. When I laughed and told him the sign was the system, he told me it's a fairly common thing.  icon_smile

Quote from: Rhinohelix on September 26, 2009, 09:56:38 PM

While this is for those people who prefer "tangy" to "sweet", this is my favorite BBQ in the world:
Luling City Market BBQ Sauce

I love this sauce.  It's also the highest quality BBQ I have had, as well.  They ship their sauce (and their BBQ) anywhere in the continental U.S.

Any chance you could post the ingredient list? I'm curious about it being mustard based as that's not usually what I buy, worst case I guess I could just order a bottle and try it out. I'm also wondering if you've tried their rub.

The manual patch was released today, it was available at launch via GFWL only which is how I got it. So, retail copies shipped with 1.0 but if you have 1.1 then you have the version with PhysX support. Talked about that and some other issues I had getting everything going back on page 3 somewhere.  icon_wink

I signed up at the website and got an email containing a download link and a serial number to register the game.  However, the game never asked for the serial number.  Does anyone know if it's supposed to ask for it?  I don't want to get into the game and find out it's just the trial version.

You only need that if it can't link back to their server and authenticate the first time you run it, otherwise it's automagic.

2702  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Call it, she's dead [my TV] on: September 18, 2009, 07:44:34 PM
I think the fact that "240Hz" sets are inherently better is debatable. They come out better in lab tests, but people can't necessarily see the difference. And make you understand there's 240Hz and "240Hz effect" sets out there:

Quote
*MEMC (motion estimation-motion compensation): Both Sony and Samsung 240Hz sets use MEMC to basically double the 120Hz process described above. However, instead of getting one extra frame for each "true" frame, you actually get three extra frames. (See reviews of the Sony KDL-52XBR7, the Sony KDL-XBR9 series and the Samsung LNB750 series).

*Scanning backlight (240 effect): LG, Toshiba, and Vizio use what's called "scanning backlight" technology. Such TVs use MEMC once to get to 120Hz, but instead of doubling the interpolation, a backlight flashes on and off very quickly to achieve what Toshiba calls a "240Hz effect." LG, for its part, fails to make that distinction and uses the 240Hz term without qualification to describe its scanning-backlight models.

You really should rename this thread: Watchdog tackles PS3 yellow light of death...makes Watchdog look bad. Never heard of or watched the show before but it was pretty lame. A Johnny Cash inspired 'comedy' video to wash it all down with? Child, please.

I have to say again, if you guys are enjoying the feel of this game and haven't tried House of the Dead: Overkill, you are totally missing out.

I've had a copy of that game for several weeks now, but it just hasn't made it into the Wii yet.  Still on my list of things to do.

Get yourself a pistol grip for the Wiimote, really a necessity for that game IMHO.

Aw, don't tell me that, I was hoping to get away without one.

OK, you could certainly get away without having one. Let me rephrase slightly and say that (IMHO) one is highly recommended.  icon_wink

When I first tried the backup utility and my flash drive was too small, it simply told me that. There's no spanning capability, so if it doesn't see the amount of space it will need it should just say so. But still, would be curious if you can do a simple copy to it or if it is well and truly locked.

The only thing I've seen online is that can be a brand issue, some may not work properly with the PS3 for some reason. Me, I haven't seen that yet, though. Do you have any others you can try?
2715  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: PS3 - USB Device is locked on: September 17, 2009, 03:23:03 AM
I'm a little confused by what you said. The backup utility doesn't give you any choice as to what to back up, it does everything on the hard drive not just game saves. Or you can copy individual files to your flash drive from the options menu. So are you having this issue trying to use the flash drive as a backup target?
2716  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Batman: Arkham Asylum PC on: September 16, 2009, 04:26:27 AM
Well, resolved both on my own. When Live first tells you your product key is invalid, you have to press 'Try Again' (not exactly intuitive) and then it asked me for the key that came with the game. After that I was able to sign into Live, when it promptly notified me there was an update available for the game. Loaded that - which took some time and looked hung, so be patient - it added the PhysX support that was missing and now the option to change it is on the bottom of the Settings menu.

Sheesh.

ps. The shipping version is 1.0 and the update to 1.1 is what brings PhysX to the table. Also, the shortcut to start the game for 1.0 ran the launcher with Play, Settings, Readme (etc) and now after the update it just starts the game.  icon_neutral
2717  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Batman: Arkham Asylum PC on: September 16, 2009, 04:05:11 AM
Argh... things have changed from the demo. Running the BMLauncher.exe from the Binaries folder gets me to the same Settings screen that comes up when the game launches but with no mention of PhysX anywhere, so I don't see where to change it any more. And Windows Live won't connect because of an 'invalid product key' and yet I can't find anywhere to set that or place to enter the authorization key that comes with the game.

I vaguely recall having this same problem with Dawn of War under Steam but I'll be jiggerred if I can remember the resolution or find any previous posting I could swore I made when it was happening to me.  icon_neutral

I found a copy at one of my Best Buys on the way home. Did you ask them if they had any copies? Too many times, especially in the first couple of days, they have them in the store but haven't bothered to put them out yet. But someone should be able to 'go in the back' and round one up for you.
