I frankly don't know about any sort of warranty on the card - it is 2.5 years old now.

Who's the manufacturer? I stick with BFG - they have a lifetime warranty.  icon_cool

I find it odd that the page on Amazon for the game says it's eligible for release day shipping, but I can't select it as an option on checkout.

Oh is that up now?  I checked just yesterday and it didn't have release day shipping frown

Just checked and it still doesn't. It has their normal 'Pre-Order Price Guarantee' but not 'Release Day Shipping'.  icon_neutral

Sorry if I'm missing this, but what happens to our scores from before?

They carry over.  For instance, on mine you'll see a +73 when you look at my profile.  Click on Trade Count and you'll see a single entry for my past feedback.  Everything from now on will go in there, so that trade count will continue to rise.  smile   It's that or Ken has to make 73 separate entries for just me alone, and that's simply not feasible.   Not to worry - your trade feedback will remain intact. smile   This way will really allow us to automate the process. (With an approval check in there for good measure) 

Actually, yours says +1. I got a pm saying mine was +7 but my profile says +1 as well... unless I'm missing something? I ask about it and was directed to this thread, so thought I would just double-check while I'm here. icon_confused

Click on the one.  You'll see it says +7

Ah... it says +7 in the comment something I didn't look / scroll down far enough to see and got fixated on the +1. Sorry, now I get you.

Without starting some kind of Holy War, any idea why a title like this will run at 1080p on the 360 but "only" 720p on the PS3?  icon_neutral

I doubt it's running in native 1080p- I'm guessing that's just MS's scaler- the 360 can scale to everything up 1080p.  With the PS3 the programmers have to manually implement scaling for higher than 720p and not all of them bother to do that. 

Ah... that makes sense, didn't realize the 360 would upscale games like that. Every now and then I wonder why the 360 never seems to do a rez switch on my TV when launching games while the PS3 will most of the time since there still aren't a lot of native 1080p games. Funny, because it can upscale movies and PS2 games, though. Thanks.

This is a pretty long series and it's still going on now, correct? I don't know if I want to commit to that. I mean, it would have to be really good.

It's 3 seasons and it's over. And I feel it is really that good.

Isn't there an Airbender movie coming out? Could have sworn I saw a trailer for it recently.

Lots of good stuffs here, I need to go through it for the ones I'm not familiar with. I really enjoyed Last Exile however it literally took months for Amazon to find me a copy of "The Murata Range Complete Set Edition" box to purchase. I also greatly enjoyed Appleseed Ex Machina.

I'm in much the same boat with Amazon Prime, but where did the $47.99 price come from?  Currently $52.99 I do believe.  icon_neutral

Ok, so I've never played the games, but am I seeing this correctly? I mean the first pic here, where it appears they are using a cardboard tank as camouflage?  that might make the game worth it if not for LOL factor.

MG has always had its share of unusual quirks

I was going to say they actually did decoys like that until I thought - wait, this is MGS and I need to check the screenshots first. While they did decoys out of plywood and such, it wasn't... like that. And I see we still have the cardboard box as well.  icon_lol

Having cut my teeth on PC games that allowed one to 'save anywhere' I certainly appreciate that when I find it nowadays in any game regardless of platform. However, I don't mind a check-point based save system if the checkpoints are intelligently placed and frequent enough to minimize (or eliminate) those 'repeating massive sections' frustrations that Blackjack mentions. I haven't gotten far enough into Wolfenstein to know where this one falls as of yet.

Question on the Intelligence gathering in the game. So, you push a key/button to 'pick it up' like anything else but you hold it down to read it, right? With a little progress bar and everything. However, is there a way to read it after you pick it up or is the only chance you get while you are picking it up?  icon_confused

Which is good because I've been stuck on 1998 points for days. Stupid Madden achievements are stuff like "tackle Adrian Peterson for a loss 20 times in one game on All-World-Super-Awesome-Madden skill level.

I hate when I find a crapload of multiplayer achievements as I very seldom play the multiplayer side. And sometimes it is nice to get those pure cheese achievements:

Is anyone else hoping they do away with the crew management crap this time?

Agreed.  Complete pain-in-the-ass feature that should be optional.

Sounds like they've "enhanced" your favorite part for this one. Captain's View might be interesting. Once or twice.

VIEW AS A CAPTAIN: Walk through highly detailed submarines in the new first-person view and access every part of your U-boat.

BECOME A REAL LEADER: Interact with your crew, watch them perform their daily jobs and experience the tension and fear inside the U-boat through the new advanced order system.

But then perhaps it may be optional as well, hard to say. Would that be the 'free of confusion' beginner mode or the 'expert' mode, I wonder:

NEW USER INTERFACE: Prowl the waters with a brand-new user interface. Now, every beginner can successfully command a sub while remaining free of confusion. In expert mode, experienced players will be provided all the necessary information and controls to command the sub completely on their own.

We shall see...

So what do you do if you have a PS3, but want to buy a slim?  Can you recover your account (like the 360) and download all your stuff to the new machine?

Just sign on the new PS3 with the same account you used on the old one and you're golden, trophies and everything. No recovery required. Then you can go back to the PSN store, check your download history and redownload whatever you need.

Thanks, next Q: Can I use two PS3's with the same ID?  Like if I moved one upstairs to be a blu-ray player for a bedroom?

Yes, you can. And from what I recall, if one is logged into the PSN when you sign onto the second one, the first is logged out. I do this all the time but generally don't have both on at the same time. I'll have to conduct a little 'speriment when I get home.

More ending discussion:

Spoiler for Hiden:
On the whole subject of 'three years', wasn't that was the answer that Christopher gave to say how long it would take to 'fix' Vikus? He makes him slow down and repeat it... three years to undo the transformation and the effects of 'the fluid'. At least that's what I recall. I don't think we have any idea how much time it might take him to get home, mount a rescue mission and come back.  icon_neutral

I also agree that we have no idea how much time had passed from when the ship left until we see the completed transformation and the tin flower making, post-relocation, wife musing ending.

Bring on District 10.  icon_biggrin


Spoiler for Hiden:
I might be mistaken, but I thought I Christopher Johnson tells him he promises he will come back for him in three years.  This is when Wilkes is getting shot badly in the suit and he tells the alien to go on to his son and his ship....didn't anyone else see that?

Spoiler for Hiden:
Right, it gets repeated then as an affirmation but that is the original answer to the question of how long it will take to fix him when Christopher tells him that he has something up on the ship that could do that. Remember how Vikus makes him 'slow down the clicks' and repeat it because he can't believe he heard it would take three years? He was a little... upset... at the news, to say the least.  icon_neutral

Perhaps he never meant to take him along and it was always how long it would take to go home and bring 'the cure' back? Or how long it would take to get him home where they could do something about it? [shrug]

Spoiler for Hiden:
You missed an important bit there, which is that the reason it will take him 3 years to fix him is that he needs the fluid to save his people, which he realizes he needs to do once they see the medical experiments occurring in the basement of MNU, which was the other meat in the conversation you were referring to.  The actual cure doesn't take that long... the trip does.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Man, I wish I had a script or transcript or something because I honestly don't think that is correct. The first time 'three years' is mentioned, from what I recall, is earlier on when Chrisopher first sees him transforming and mentions he can fix him and that he has technology up in the ship to do so. That is well before they go back to MNU to actually retrieve the fluid and they both see the bodies being experimented on. Oh, well, time to let this go it seems... and wait for the sequel.  icon_lol
