Huh... I have both a Wii That Is Collecting Dust and a copy of Eternal Darkness, which is still deep in my eternal backlog. Guess I need to move it up to the front of the queue.  icon_wink

I don't believe so as that would be an FSB of 500, or at least not without overclocking the RAM. However, it's cheap enough that getting what your mobo supports should be pretty easy.

I'm hoping they just continue season two where the "aired" season one left off and then throw in an "Epitaph Two" as well.  icon_smile

I'm assuming 'parry' is 'counter' - the triangle on the PS3 and the Y on the 360. And 'B' would be 'circle' or cape stun.

From the top button, clockwise:

PS3:  Triangle/Green, Circle/Red, X/Blue, Square/Pink(?)
360:   Y/Yellow, B/Red, A/Green, X/Blue

2692  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Bought a PS3 Slim yesterday - new console gamer with questions on: August 30, 2009, 12:04:05 AM
I don't have an issue with the XMB personally, at least I can find whatever it is I'm looking for - which is not always the case for me with the 360 dashboard. [shrug] And not really issues with the store, either.

ps. That is the improved PSN store, you should have seen it before!  icon_razz

got the borrowed PS3 copy and it looks like I'll have until Sunday to finish it.  for some reason the dodge didn't work so well in the first fight where it was pointed out; bad timing on my part I guess.

one question:  does the game point it out the first time the find the item or align the question mark Riddler challenges show up?

NM, just found out it does.  I assume the game lets you backtrack pretty much anywhere, especially since some trophies are behind objects I don't have a way to access yet?

Yes. Interesting to note something I hadn't noticed was missing yet, watched the behind the scenes videos on the disk and in one they mention it is one huge open world with no loading screens. Now, that's a nice thing to be missing.  thumbsup

I downloaded it quickly from the main game site and gave it a try. Overall it seems like it could be fun, but I got to the castle and pushed "A" at the gate and nothing happened. I tried the other two ninjas and still they couldn't get in. So, either that is the end of the demo or I already found a glitch.

If it's like the PC demo, I think you have to push the button down repeatedly, not just once. And perhaps use the big fellow with the hammer? Oh, "A" key not "A" button I guess... thought you had to press the spacebar.  icon_confused

An odd thing happened to me the other day - after playing this for the first time stumbled across something amusing on the drive to work the next morning. They've been doing work on one of the highways I take and there were these rather large bright green arrows spray painted on the asphalt where you had to move over to merge. Cracked me up... damn Joker is everywhere.  paranoid

seriously the shorter the better, and i plead a bit of ignorance on the advance of hdmi cord technology so is there even a difference from one cord to the next?

Nope. The ones you buy for less than $5 at Monoprice.com are just as good as the ones they charge rip you off for $100 at Best Buy. It's a digital cable. Either it'll work or it won't. No magical 'magnetic shielding' or whatever term Monster makes up this week will make things better.

Agreed. The only thing I'd add is to look for "1.3a Category 2" cables but that's pretty much all that Monoprice sells. Oh, and sorry, no extra cables.

Exactly. I do volunteer peer-to-peer support for an IBM product that runs on almost everything out there. The client is Windows based but the server can be on Windows or pretty much any flavor of UNIX. Now, I'm old and cut my teeth configuring DOS boot menus and all that arcane crap plus have been on one flavor or another of UNIX since the early 80s. [cough] I'm still amazed by how many people have problems that need to be solved at the command line and who have no idea what to do. My favorite is when they can "see" a command but not run it and are baffled by "-sh: fred: command not found"... and thus begins the whole "relative v. full paths, $PATH setting, your CWD, "./<command>", etc etc discussion.

It's a GUI world out there.  icon_wink

Chaz, does the PS3 version not have trophy support?

You betcha it does.  Though I still miss the trophy points adding to my overall gamerscore.  That's really the hook for Acheivements, and without that, trophies just aren't quite the same, but they are there.

I thought it was funny that the PS3 version has a mandatory install, and then the opening cinematic proceeded to hitch every five seconds for the first minute or so.  After that I didn't see any problems, but I thought it was funny.  The demo didn't do that, so I suspect it has to do with the slow read speed on the bluray disc.

It does say something about that first mandatory portion being just the initial footprint and then it would spool other sections to the hard drive 'as needed' with a maximum size of somewhere around 3.5GB IIRC. And I don't remember any hitching watching the opening, but then I've swapped out the launch 60GB drive for a 250GB one some time ago, perhaps that helped? Or maybe my memory is... faulty...  icon_neutral

I thought the first boss battle was strange.

Spoiler for Hiden:
The first "boss battle" was with Killer Croc right? Or something that resembled him. After dodging his attacks for a few minutes and being unsure of what to do, I finally realized I could throw my batarang at him. I threw it at him a few times and it didn't seem like it was doing any damage, eventually though he grabs his head and collapses. My question is, was it actually my batarang that knocked him out or was he on some sort of timer?

I experienced exactly the same thing. I thought ... oh ... that was easy. Then I thought, well hell, it should be ... I'M BATMAN!

Spoiler for Hiden:
I never even threw a batarang.  I was trying to line everything up so that when he charged, I'd dodge out of the way and he'd slam into the electrified door.  Then he randomly grabbed his hea.

Spoiler for Hiden:
That was just another tutorial section to teach you how to dodge and all you have to do is survive long enough so that he dies first from the Joker poison.

Comic is a 10 or 12 pager the size of the manual. Easy to miss.

The comic was an Amazon exclusive for pre-orders. There were several different ones (exclusive bonus stuffs) available from the various retailers.

I hate the current avatars, so I'm actually interested in getting a halfway decent one.  BTW, I don't think they mean avatars in the Wii/NXE way.  From the stuff I saw, it looks like it'll just be icons.

It sounded like it will just be more icons, they are expanding their current selection. Plus 'premium' ones as well, if you had some strange hanker'n to actually pay for one.

From what I've seen, your 'accuracy' does improve as you level up but I don't think there's an upgrade. It's just that if you pull the trigger and don't override the targetting with the right stick (let it go) he'll do a pretty good job of automatically locking on enemies.
