How are you supposed to compare e-peens if people just have to take your word for it?

If they are your friend they can see it on your profile in the XMB

Well, there's always this: http://www.ps3-trophies.com/en/gamercard.html

Or you can let us know what your "handle" (or whatever in the heck it is called) is on the PSN so people can send Friend invites your way.

Have they released the patch for the other versions?  I may just grab the PC version for 20 bucks.

Apparently, they're not planning on releasing a patch unless the PS3 version sells enough.  As you can see from the last couple of comments, that's probably not going so well.

That apparently from a comment made by the game's designer:

Quote
While checking out the tweaked “Alone in the Dark” in a San Francisco hotel yesterday, game designer Emile Morel couldn’t explicitly promise such a patch was coming.

“We’re trying to do it,” said Morel. “It’s technically complicated. The size of a patch is very limited by Microsoft. So if we do a patch it would only be about the new control and the new camera.”

Morel says “only” because the PS3 version also includes a new subway chase sequence that would likely be too large to include in just a mere patch.

“We can’t promise it because it is still early,” he said. “We are finishing this [PS3] version first. I guess it also depends on the success of this version. If people review it again and said it’s not worth it…” [laughs]

Time will tell how this all plays out.  Silly me, I ended up ordering this from Amazon.  paranoid

I went looking for this at my local Best Buy since I was considering a purchase and they didn't have it listed on their website. Talked to one of their peoples and apparently they're not planning on carrying it in spite of them knowing it's been "improved". Too much inventory of the original versions they can't unload, apparently.

Fair warning- evidently the opening movie before the title screen horribly spoils the game.  I haven't watched it and I now don't plan to...

Really? I've watched the whole (very nicely done) thing and don't recall anything that seemed like it might be a spoiler. Where did you read this? Maybe getting further into it you'd look back and realize you saw something about that in the opening movie, but still... icon_neutral
3006  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 - Must Haves? on: November 16, 2008, 03:05:13 PM
I'm enjoying MS: Pacific Rift more than the first. There are four distinct element-based areas on the island - Fire, Air, Water, Earth - which heavily influence the varied courses. Water now cools your car so you can burst longer while fire/lava has the opposite effect, including setting you / your car on fire. There are a couple of new vehicles and they've (mostly) solved the extremely long amount of time it could take to pick one by having a separate "garage". You can also pick your driver/rider now though it's only cosmetic I do believe. Lastly, I think there are more offensive manuevers you can do, though I prefer simply squishing the smaller people in my way when I can take a larger rig on the course.  nod

I can't think of anything else, either. Lots of great suggestions here.

The Wii outsold the PS2, PS3, and 360 combined by more than 100k units.  Unreal.
And I still have yet to see one in stock, anywhere. ever.

My local Gamestop has had them in stock for quite a few days now (or is it weeks?). They even have the sign out in front that advertises that they actually have them in stock. *shrugs*

I see the Wii consoles quite frequently lately, it seems, such that it no longer surprises me. The Wii Fit on other hand, that's still the rare bird.

Looking at the PS2 v. PS3 hardware sales numbers, it really makes me wonder about an article I saw on Blues News today saying that the PS2 was dead and basically nothing new would be developed for it after the holiday season is over:

Obviously, if you add funds to your wallet as a separate step you need to pick the denomination. However, I too have seen both behaviours when buying things without the covering funds already in my wallet and I just try to checkout. Sometimes it prompts me to add chunks of money and sometimes it just debits me for the amount of the transaction. I've been wondering what triggers the different behaviour myself.  icon_confused

Found what seems to be a bug. Been working on the GNR quest and fast travelling back and forth between the various locations along the way and Megaton to drop stuff off or sell it. After selling some stuff at Craterside, I noticed she had some Combat Armor for sale - one with a DR of 18 for 174 caps and (2) with a DR of 11 for something like 34 caps. Being flush, I decided to pop for the extra nice Combat Armor since what I was wearing only had a DR of 11.

Imagine my shock when I went back home and swapped armor, only to discover what I'd gotten for my 174 caps was the cheap-ass DR 11 armor, no better than what I already had. So, is this a bug or did the bitch just rip me off?  icon_evil

And with the 'auto-save in buildings' thing, I had to go back and redo a wee bot 'o stuff to get back to a point where I could not buy the armor. Farg.

What's the condition of the armor? It's possible that fully repaired it's an 18, but in it's current state it's an 11?

It's a bug. As long as there are the DR 11 Combat Armor suits in her inventory, that's what I get for my 175 caps. Point to and pay for the DR 18, get the DR 11. Twice, if you like. So it turns out I needed to actually buy the two DR 11 suits before I could buy the DR 18 suit and then I could sell back the two DR 11s.  Sheesh.  icon_confused

Edited to add: just did this for reals a little while ago and after buying the dinged up DR 18 Combat Armor for 175 caps it magically changed to DR 32 in perfect condition, worth almost twice that. Nice lady.  icon_wink

3017  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fallout 3 impressions thread on: November 10, 2008, 02:20:01 PM
Hmmm... don't recall. The first time I bought it (yes, I did it twice) I bought it and one of the cheaper ones figuring I could use the cheaper one to repair the better one.  Both showed as DR 11 and I don't recall it looking like it would go up to 18 and thought maybe I'd screwed up and hadn't really picked the right one. So I loaded an earlier save and just bought the expensive one. And then went back and decided to forget the whole thing.

I'll go back and see what kind of condition it's in...

Melee is definitely a possibility, but you're gonna be beat up a LOT until you get some decent armor. I also haven't seen any uber-amazing melee weapons either (but I have seen quite a few guns).

Saw a commercial for a new "live action video game" show called Cha$e but at first I thought it was going to be for Mirror's Edge. Heck, it starts off with someone running across a rather white rooftop, sliding under a duct and then jumping from it to another but the kicker was the fact that bits of the building were painted red.

Ah... here it is, linked from the www.americanparkour.com forums where the runner is apparently a member:

I haven't had much time to play this yet, but the 'hand-drawn watercolor-esque' style is just gorgeous and for me falls into the 'unlike anything I have ever played' camp. And from browsing through the guide there seems to be much more depth to it than the demo revealed. Mostly sucked into FO3 at the moment, but planning on getting back to this next. Interesting, but I never thought of this as 'FF-style' while playing and I've played several of those and Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, Infinite Undiscovery (etc) as well.  [shrug]

Give the demo a shot, you should know right away if it is something you can or cannot abide.  icon_wink

Right, and that's something I've been doing. I know it's not a "big deal", but rather was looking for some idea if this was The Way It Works Now or if I was the victim of some kind of strange Vista-related installer bug that I hadn't seen before. Seems to be the former.

Thanks for the information, gang.  thumbsup
3026  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Games install without shortcuts or Start menu entries on: November 01, 2008, 09:35:41 PM
As would I. Or at least the option.

I have 40 other games installed on this machine before these last two went on and they all behaved what I thought was perfectly normally - start menu entry created, ask about a desktop shortcut, yada yada, as I've seen for years. These last two, from what I recall, asked for a location and if I wanted to install for just the current user or everyone and nothing more.

So, is what is being said here is that is this now the new norm?  That under Vista it knows to put the shortcut in the Games tab and do nothing else?  icon_confused

That's strange - How do you stop that from happening?

I believe it happened when I clicked on "Quick Play" or some such. I just wanted to see what it did and rather than R the F manual I just clicked it. I wasn't sure if it had suddenly showed up because I was finally "online" on the PSN after the patch or because I'd complete the first section and two new planets had opened up. Guess it was the former.

ps. Did they just add the "Wash your sackboy" option? I don't recall seeing it the last time I accidentally got sticker all over my face.  icon_lol

Plenty of other things installed in the past but now two games in a row have done this to me: first BIA:HH and now FO3. Go through the install without (apparent) incident and when complete there's no desktop shortcut and nothing on the start menu. I have to manually create a shortcut to run the game. At least they are listed in the Uninstall Programs applet.

Anyone seen this behaviour?  Vista Home Premium, fwiw.
