The PS3 has predictive text and does a good job with the word you are typing. However, not sure how exactly the 'next word' part works, mostly seems to be driven by what you've typed in the past after the word you've just entered.

I'd forgotten that Sucker Punch games actually start when you press the Start button, if you want the menu you have to press Select. And with the way this game starts it's almost as if you blow up the city. Gah! What the? icon_cool

1. How do you find whats on sale?

2. How do you view user reviews?

1. Not sure as they just revamped their site. Subscribing to the newsletter is one way. Ah, there's a 'News' section on the RHS down near the bottom. Or here.

2. There is a 'Reviews' tab on each game's page.

Anyone have ideas on where I can pick this up at? My local gamestops weren't accepting preorders and say they won't have any in until Mid June.

I generally find I have good luck with being able to get Atlus games from Amazon.

Me too. Available there now for $27.99 btw.

I installed it in a fit of nostalgia a few months back and don't recall having any issues under Vista. Perhaps I just don't remember... guess it's time to try and find the disks again and see. Too bad it's not at GOG.  icon_neutral

I don't know what in the hell I thought I was remembering, but I can't get this farking thing to run under Vista.  icon_evil

Seemed to work unpatched, but I only watched the intro and went to the menu. Patched to 1.70 and... nothing. Lots of disk and cdrom activity... nothing. Got a cracked "XP" executable, back to starting with that and running in XP SP2 compatability mode. However, going to 'New Campaign' gets me the big finger pointer, the "X" to quit and a black screen. Tons of posts from people in the same boat out there in the wild, it seems. It works for some, however, so maybe there is hope for others but it doesn't seem to be in the cards for me.  icon_cry

Edited to add: Not quite sure what made it work, but an uninstall followed by a reinstall, patch, compatability mode and hardware acceleration off in game now (as before) has it working for me. Bumped up the resolution to 1600x1200 (enabled via regedit) and just like Gycerine everything works except there's no in-game menu text. The buttons and sliders are there, but they're not labelled. Read somewhere it doesn't have a working font for the higher resolutions...

Quote from: lildrgn on May 21, 2009, 08:41:01 PM

I've read a couple of Wilson's books too. I re-read one a few years ago. I think. It was set in the 80s or so in New York. What with all the Pendergast books I read last year and then trying to remember this one, well I think I'm cornfused.

But, I'm a sucker for recurring characters (Jack Reacher, Harry Bosch, etc), so maybe I'll revisit Repairman Jack (though I think in the book I read, he wasn't known as Repairman Jack). Thanks for the reminder!

Know the author but for some reason hadn't heard of this series that I recall and in poking found this is a fairly long and still ongoing series. Just what I need, yet another series where I might plow through what's out there and then wait for the next one... and wait... Song of Fire and Ice, anyone? icon_wink

From the author's official site:

Quote from: F. Paul Wilson
By the time I reached the end of The Tomb, I realized I had a series character. I didn't feel I was ready to write a series then, so I left him bleeding to death at the end. But the guy wouldn't die. The Tomb never went out of print, and through the years it amassed a huge following. So after 14 years of pleas from readers, I wrote a second Repairman Jack novel. Legacies was so much fun I had to do another, and itís been a book a year since then.

But this is not an open-ended series. I will not run Jack into the ground. I'm figuring on ending his saga in 2011 with book fifteen.

Do these tend to hold up?

The Surrogates and Sherlock Holmes trailers looked really good.

True! Was shocked to see new trailers, usually it's ones I've seen before. And while the Surrogates trailer was playing, before they put up the graphic novel connection, I was wondering... is this yet another movie made from a Phillip K Dick novel?  icon_smile

We're still pretty earlier on in their genesis, so I'm assuming this is leftover stuff from the peoples who built them.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Quote from: msteelers
As for my complaints on the plot, Skynet tells Marcus that he was programmed to lure John into their base because their previous attempts to go back in time and kill him have all failed...

Honestly, I don't recall any mention of time travel or I would have thought the same thing. Didn't they just say "their previous attempts" and something about no-one had been able to do it before?  icon_confused

Spoiler for Hiden:
That could be, as they didn't specifically say that they went back in time. But I don't think it's that far of a stretch to say that when they mention their previous attempts to eliminate John Connor, it brings up memories of the previous Terminator films. Plus, why is Kyle Reese the #1 priority on the Skynet death list unless they realize that he is John Connor's father?

 icon_biggrin

Spoiler for Hiden:
I agree, it's not a far stretch at all to think of the previous films at that point. However, as I think you noted earlier Kyle is too young at this point in the timeline, so I'm assuming that particular attempt has yet to happen. And I got the impression we got to see the very first "I'll be baak" T800 come off the line, or at least the first one any humans had seen. Just checked and unless they've totally porked the timeline, this movie takes place in 2018 and an older, captured T800 goes into the past from the year 2029.  They certainly do seem to know that he is John Conner's father, hence the #1 spot on the death list, this just seems to be another in a long line of failed attempts to kill John and now Kyle, ultimately leading up to the 'leap' back in time to prevent him from being born by killing his mother.

I'm in the midst of reading The Last Wish which is an English translation of the Polish book that inspired The Witcher.  So far it seems more like a collection of short stories than a novel, but I've enjoyed the 1/3rd or so that I've read so far.

Pre-ordered Crimson Gem Saga from Amazon, so that will be showing up. And somehow I feel obligated to buy inFAMOUS.  icon_wink

I bought into the complete season of W&G, so will download that. That Sherlock Holmes game is another in the Frogwares series, I assume... I'll pick that up eventually but not this week. Hadn't heard of Cross Edge before but the one preview I read mentioned the word 'complicated' several times.

Not just patches, but 'hints' as well. I was playing pretty much everything Infocom made back in the day and when you got stuck, you could be stuck for days or weeks. You'd bother your friends and family and ask them what they would do. You thought about it, drew maps and thought some more... then felt this great rush when you finally figured it out. And then one day there were InvisiClues.

Today if some goofy puzzle in an adventure game hangs me up for more than a handful of minutes, I'm off to the web for a walkthru. Really should have more discipline. icon_neutral

If you go to the official site and watch the developer interviews, it reminds me of what we saw before the last 'Alone in the Dark' came out. There's excitement when they talk about it and they honestly think they're doing something unique and wonderful, things 'never seen before'... like zip lines, mantling, swinging on poles, environment as cover, yada yada. Nope, never seen that before.
