I don't remember them making Red Baron 2, only Red Baron 3D, but I loved the original.  Yeah, time would be about right to bring the series back.

RB 2 and RB 3D are the same game, the latter released shortly after 2 and included code that allowed it to be enhanced with 3D cards. One thing about the original RB3D, was it was optimized for the 3DFx Voodoo GPU's. So I'm wondering if the GOG version will still actually support 3DFx Glide or just Direct3D.

I was wondering the same thing. From what I recall, it only supported Voodoo cards back in the day, so I wonder if they'll include one of the Glide wrappers with it or it can leverage Direct3D now or what?  icon_neutral

Someone on BGG was saying that GW was releasing it at a higher price point and with painted minis.  I'm guessing that's false as I can't imagine GW circumnavigating the chance to sell more paints and paint supplies.

Not when they can sell a Citadel Mega Paint Set for $250. icon_wink

Back in the day, I would have happily painted mine, now... not so much.

You know, this would probably be the first game I would ever be willing to shell out extra dollars for a collectors edition.

Naturally, there isn't one.

Seriously, why not do a CE of this game with the soundtrack, artbook, maybe a Brutal Legends banner, a jacket patch (they were giving these away at ComicCon), or even an Eddie Riggs figurine?   

If you pre-order at Best Buy (not sure if it's elsewhere, too), you get an old fashioned LP sleeve, as seen in the credits.  Not sure what all you get with it, though.  I imagine it's pretty plain.

You get... the sleeve.  icon_wink

Monoprice is *the* place for cables and as noted they have many choices of both length and color. Pick any of the HDMI 1.3 Category 2 ones and you'll be golden. Also note that HDMI carries both the video and audio signals so you don't need anything else if your hardware supports it.

2694  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Jack the Ripper vs Sherlock Holmes on: October 07, 2009, 12:01:52 AM
Yes, there are five Sherlock Holmes games that Frogwares has done. It does get a little confusing as they changed the name on a couple of them, from what I recall, from the UK to the US release. There's also other people doing Sherlock Holmes games, so sometimes they get lumped in with these.

Yes, very much like the Broken Sword series with a fairly consistent set of main characters in different situations. They've done a pretty good job (IMHO) of capturing the Holmes era and 'feeling' and the Watson/Holmes dynamic, if that makes sense.
2695  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Witcher..whats the diff in these versions? on: October 06, 2009, 11:54:53 PM
As noted, the only real difference is one is the "Import" version and one isn't. The "book" is actually an excerpt from The Last Wish but it is a little nicer in that it has quite a number of full color illustrations in it.

And you can get the non-enhanced version and upgrade to the enhanced version for free, you just have to download a crapload of stuff and burn your own media (or print out the map) if you want it that way.

Just watched the trailer on Marketplace, looks quite cool. The comment from the obese hooker was funny smile.

Anyone know how this will play out? Pure adventure or some mix of action and mystery solving? Initial thoughts were positive.

These are pure adventure games from Frogwares and have all been very nicely done. They've even gone back and updated older releases with engine improvements they've made in the newer games. There's even 'Awakened', a Cthulhu themed Homes story.

Saw some moves there that were new to me... for example, how does one take a stun baton away from someone and use it against them?  icon_neutral

One of the WayneTech upgrades is an unblockable takedown which, like the throw, can only be triggered after you've increased the combo multiplier by x8 (or, with a different upgrade, by x5).  It's extremely useful against knife- or stun baton-wielding enemies, especially when you're racing against a time limit like in Shock & Awe Extreme.

I've unlocked that but haven't had much luck getting it to 'fire'... hate to expose my ignorance like this but when it mentions two buttons like B+Y (I think it is) do I press B then Y in quick succession or am I supposed to mash them both down together?  icon_confused

Quote from: Turtle on October 05, 2009, 06:06:37 PM

As I said above, standby mode uses almost no battery power, almost all the system powers off much like most modern electronics, the only thing getting power is a tiny trickle of power going to the memory banks.

Unlike the common misconception, standby/sleep on the PSP doesn't use much battery at all.

If you're thinking I'm part of this 'common misconception' I only made the comment because I tend to use the PSP in spurts and then leave it sitting around collecting dust for long periods of time, off or even suspended. More often than not, when I come back to it the battery is either near dead or doornail dead. For whatever reason, my DSLite seems to fare much better in that category. [shrug]

I kind of wonder if those of us with the import version would be able to play with owners of the US version.  I'm also curious if there were any changes to the US version, and whether those are getting ported into the Asian version.

From what I've read, the answer to the first question is 'no' as they are separate servers. And from what little I've been able to find, the changes seem to be 'localization' type changes where items were renamed, other than that I'm not sure if there is any difference.  icon_neutral

The one feature of the Go that I wish was put into a firmware update for the other PSPs is the ability to pause any game at any time and shut it off or go back to the dashboard and resume at that same exact point later.  That's the only real neat thing the PSPGo can do that I wish my PSP-2000 could.

I think the 3000 does that. I've shut the game down and come right back to it at the same point. At least on Madden.

You can suspend the system while playing a game on any PSP at the expense of the battery, but you can't actually stop it.  With the PSPGo you can pause any game, go back to the frontend, surf the web, watch a movie, whatever, and then just resume where you were at a later date.  That feature is exclusive to the Go.

Crap. I never knew that. So everytime I flick the power off, I'm just putting it into standby? Is there supposed to be a blinking light or something that tells you when you are in standby?

Not that I've seen, standby and off look exceedingly similar until you turn it back on... assuming the battery hasn't crapped out in the meantime.  icon_wink

Saints at 4-0.  Wow.  Looks like they finally have some defense to go along with that awesome offense.  As a long-time Saints fan, I never get too excited because the Saints always have a way to fuck things up, but I am cautiously optimistic about this season.

Much the same here in Denver with the Broncos. Not sure about the offense but the defense has been awesome in stark contrast to previous years. Cautiously optimistic, indeed.  icon_wink

Also, maybe I missed something, but if they're on a ship and the Stargate is broken and they can't use it to bring them home, then isn't the point of this being a Stargate show moot if they can't use it? When will they ever get to use it?

It's not broken and in fact the ship is establishing wormholes for them automagically now, some sort of pre-programmed hunt for resources with a 12 hour window that looks like a plot element they'll rely heavily on, if I had to guess. We've gone from 7 symbol addresses to 8 symbols and now to 9 with this show and I think the only 'brokenness' is in their understanding of exactly how to use all 9 symbols to get home and getting the power required to do so... without killing themselves in the process.

The rest of the stuff I don't need I just trade away.  Though there is no indicator of it on the trade screens, other people appear to have unlimited cash so you can just cash out what you don't need.

Yah, I'm getting the impression that's what you're meant to do since there doesn't seem to be any notion of encumbrance that I've seen so far with your Infinite Knapsack. Anything you don't want you sell off to some merchant.
