So... is there a secret to this?  I've only got two downloaded games at the moment, the Zelda Ocarina game and the one that sounds like a Queen song. One lets me copy or move it to the SD card, the other only copy (forget which is which) but neither show up on the SD Card Menu afterwards.  icon_confused

That's weird.  It should work.

You have the little icon at the bottom of your screen, right?   So, you updated to the recent dashboard release.

Maybe make sure you're on the first page of channels in the SD card menu?  Or scroll through all of them to make sure it's there.  Did you delete them from the regular Wii menu?  Maybe that's an issue.  You could also just try downloading them again.

Yup, all updated and got the little icon and when I didn't see it on the first page I scrolled through all of them just to check... nada. Guess it's really meant for the larger WiiWare or VC games, as noted by Kronovan these ones are small so not a big deal - I was just surprised when "it didn't work" and was wondering what (if any) restrictions there may be on what does and doesn't work there.

I watched a couple of episodes and was interested enough to pick up a half-price boxed set of what I thought were the three books of The Sword of Truth series but now I see they are the first three ginormous books and there's what - twelve or more all together? Great. I also just saw the "good at first but..." and "devolved" and "trainwreck" comments I do believe. So... how many of them are worth reading?  icon_neutral

I really enjoyed the first 5 books, then the series went to complete shite IMHO.  I haven't even bothered to read the last few, although I've heard he regains a bit of his early form and ends the series well.

i've read and really enjoyed the first 5 as well...never picked up any after that mainly because i got distracted by other things and haven't had the time, but the story started off pretty good in my opinion.  i don't know what he did to mess things up later, but i'd still like to get back to the series some day...

Thanks guys. I'll give the one's I've got a shot and see. Got a huge backlog, though... buy three, read one, buy four more, read two... if they stopped printing books tomorrow I'd be set for years it seems.  icon_neutral

Almost sounds like a repeat of the old "Tarl Cabot" Gor novels for me - great at first, turned to crap around #4 I think and I never made it past 5... and there were 25 of the damn things eventually. Contrast that with Dray Prescot which I ate up back in the 70's and 80's, enjoying all fifty-two of them.  icon_biggrin

When entering The Pitt I found it odd that, during the railcar scene (at one end or the other, don't recall) I was told I couldn't bring my dog along and I'd have tie him up and leave him behind. Problem is, Dogmeat and Fawkes have been in my Megaton house since before Alaska and I'd left them there for this little adventure as well. It then proceeded to tell me that Dogmeat went back to my house and Fawkes went back to the Natural History museum. I guess we'll see who's where when I get done with all this.  icon_confused

I had the same thing happen.  When I returned I had to go get Dogmeat at Vault 101. 

Ah... maybe that's where it said he went rather than Megaton. And I see from the wiki it's a known issue... never mind.

So if the new DLC alters the quest line, does that mean the level cap increase doesn't apply to those still going through the original quest as I still am?

I'm not sure what you're asking.  When you get Broken Steel you have access to more levels no matter where you are or what you're doing.  It's magic! smile 

You covered it. But if I'm not done with the main quest and the DLC alters the ending of the main quest doesn't that create some kind of time space continuum thing or is it smooth as silk...

If you haven't completed it yet, what's to alter?  icon_wink

It's us folks who finished it who are wondering how in the heck it will be 'altered' in order to allow things to continue. I actually completed the main quest and then went back to an earlier save to continue my adventures. I think that was at around the 40 hour mark and now here I am, entering The Pitt with 107 hours under my belt, firmly smashed up against the level cap with Sarah Lyons and Giant Robot still patiently waiting for me so we can go kick some Enclave ass. I hope. I guess I should go check.

So I'm hoping that with the advent of "Broken Steel" I can go back to where they're waiting, live out this altered ending and then continue terrorizing the wasteland to my heart's content. Or at least until I hit the new cap. Yes?

So, here's a thought - is the lack of DLC on the PS3 because of some exclusive deal with Microsoft, or is it because of this? The world may never know.

even if Kathode knew I'm sure he couldn't say, so why don't we stop bugging him about the PS3 DLC and start poking him about Elder Scrolls 5?  Tongue

i can't wait for Elder Scrolls 5,i loved Oblivion and liked Morrowind(until i ran into all sorts of problems on the xbox)


as for the DLC on PS3 there is a rumour that Bethesda had a little falling out with SONY over Oblivion GOTY(not sure what the actual falling out was) and that was a reason why they didnt put this DLC out on the PS3

i heard this on the PS3 forums,so you know it has to be true(!)

Yah, must be.  icon_lol

I'd be shocked if this was an actual Bethesda decision, but who knows any more. Always figured it was the whole 'Microsoft exclusive' thing.

First off:  retard

Updated late last night and have this available now. And just to save anyone else from the stupidity I had searching for a new "channel", even going out to Wii Shop, it's not a channel at all. What you will find is a new icon down on the lower left-hand side for the SD Card Menu that looks like (of all things) an SD card. Click on that and you'll get a very channel-like display of whatever is on your card.

So... for an old curmudgeon like me who pretty much sticks to single player, is there enough here to make a worthwhile purchase? Or does it really come down to the multi?

When I played in beta, I played exclusively the single player campaign, and it wasn't until late last night that I played my first co-op mission with a friend.  I ended up doing the first mission about 5 different times on the same difficulty level with different deck builds, and each time was fun in different ways.  I've only made it to the 4th (I think) mission and have already got at least 20 hours of game time in (including deck building, upgrades, and losses).  Also for additional challenge you can play the same map on 2 more difficulty levels (advanced and expert).  As I mentioned above, I believe the main single player campaign has 18 missions (not 100% sure on this). 

I'd say there is a ton of playability for a single player presuming you do indeed like the core game - BUT with the caveat that like Guild Wars, you still have to login online to get to the main map interface (which may be a turn off for some players).  The counter point about this though is that, like Guild Wars again, your progress is all tied to your account, so you can bring it with you on different computers or on the road.

You can download the game demo and see how you like it - it's set up in a shareware format, but it gives you a pretty good idea of what to expect.

Excellent, thanks for that... off to check out the demo.

Isn't there one already out there called something like 'Crystal Defenders'? Looked more like a 'tower defense' game though, from what I remember.

The only FF games that have been released for the Wii are FF Fables Chocobo's Dungeon, FF My Life as a King (Wiiware) and the just released FF Chrystal Chronicles Echoes of Time. The previously released FF Chrystal Chronicles can be played on the Wii, but it's actually a GameCube game. To date, none of the legacy -NES of SNES- FF have been released for the Wii Virtual Console, so the original FF is the 1st. The Crystal Defenders you mention was released on XBLA.

D'oh!  So right, sorry.  retard

So... rather than enable play from the SD card, it still has to copy it to system memory first - it just happens in an automated fashion. Now I'm curious, will we need to manually clean up behind it or will it remove the 'temporary' copy once you quit the game?

I hit level 20 last night and now all progress on the game will stop much to my chagrin as I am loving it again.

I wish they would have made the extended level cap DLC the next one instead of the one after this.  Surely the devs must know that people are close or already past the level cap...seems to be a no brainer to me.

Read the last few paragraphs of the blog entry Sarkus linked to, it will help explain why 'Broken Steel' is taking the most time to deliver.

Good question. The only reason I've seen that come up here and even on usenet is the fact that the recently release trailer shows quite a bit of run-and-gun FPS style shooting and not one example of VATS. For all we knew it was specific to the storyline... whatever controls VATS (Pipboy? Implant? Goa'uld symbiote?) was confiscated / deactivated as part of the plot.  icon_wink

There's no install step on the 360, for one. The PS3 will automatically install if you shut it down during a background download and tick the box to complete the download(s) first. It will download, install and then power off. And 'foreground' downloads will automatically install, but yes the background ones require a manual install step otherwise.

After that you get to call in air support to take out two more tanks coming in the same route and then the scenario ends.

remembered where I was in a movie if I have to interupt playback while watching a blu ray disc.  I'm not sure if it's just my system (I thought they were supposed to include a resume function in one patch, and seem to remember it actually doing so at some point), but if I accidentally hit stop while watching anything on blu ray I have to start over at the beginning and go through scene selection to find my previous spot.

Hmmm... I've had this work just fine for me, but I don't recall if I hit stop or not. I'll have to play with this, but from what I recall there's a 'triangle' button option to 'Play' the movie or 'Replay from the beginning' with the former supposed to pick up where you left off.
