2121  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: LOTRO: Book 7 Update on: May 12, 2009, 05:50:28 PM

Quote from: TiLT on May 12, 2009, 05:23:03 PM

Nice coincidence. I hit level 60 this weekend too. The last two levels were spent entirely in Lothlorien, and I still have lots of stuff to do there. I'm almost starting to look forward to heading back into Moria to kick the collective asses of anything that threatened me there before.

Interestingly, I don't own a single legendary weapon at this point. I just haven't found anything I felt was good enough to focus on, and my old weapons both became outdated and were melted down. I now have about 230 000 item xp waiting for my next weapon. smile

You do realize that the legendary weapons lvl up and become much stronger pretty quickly. I haven't used a regular weapon since about lvl 47, none of them hold a candle to legendary weapons. They have all kinds of stat boosts, especially once you start lvling up your runes to slot.

I hit 60 over the weekend with my first character. I'm now one of the few lvl 60 Wardens.

I will probably start up a new toon soon. The ride to 60 was really rewarding and I can honestly say that this was the first time I hit lvl cap in a game and I didn't feel like I was grinding just to get there. I actually wanted the lvl to hold off because there is so much more left to do. I still have to gather my various deeds, collect reputation, finish books 1.10. on up and so on. I figure there is enough to keep me busy with this toon on and off until the next major expansion comes out.

If I was a mumorpuger game developer I'd provide reviewers with game characters at starter levels, mid levels, and end-game levels so that they could get an idea of what the entire game has to offer without investing hundreds of hours.

The funny thing is, if you ask them to do that they will. I know at the very least Turbine does.
2128  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Eurogamer busted! on: May 07, 2009, 12:58:08 PM
The only MMO review I have ever written was for LoTRO Mines of Moria (Awesome game by the way) and I played that game for almost 6 weeks before I wrote the review. Even then I felt like I was missing key parts of the game. So 9 hours is no where near enough time to judge an MMO in my opinion, let alone 2 hours.

Quote from: Fireball1244 on May 06, 2009, 05:53:29 AM

One thing I've liked in Battle for the Cowl is that they've made mention of Comic Book Death Syndrome. Dick and Alfred have discussed how Tim seems to not be coping with Bruce's death, and they theorize that it's because he's seen so many people die (Superman, Green Lantern, Green Arrow, etc) and come back from that death that he no longer thinks of death as a finality.

It could also be that Tim has already seen this exact F'ing storyline before, except he broke his back instead of getting hit by a death ray. Still it's the same damn storyline from a little over 15 years ago.

Upgrade the blades first and then the lightening attack (Can't remember its name). The blades are your primary weapon so you will get the most out of your XP that way. If you kill enough guys and find enough chests you should have no problem maxing most of your powers out by the end of the game.

I still haven't seen Wolverine yet, but Ryan Reynolds seems like the perfect cast for Deadpool. Anyone who has seen Van Wilder or even his old TV show, knows that he can play a smart ass really well. It also doesn't hurt that he's in good shape physically.

If you have the 7000 installed do you have to reformat and reload to install RC?
MS would like for you to do a fresh install, but one one of the W7 blogs there are instructions on how to do an upgrade.

Do you have a link for that?

I picked this up at Gamestop today, and I'm about an hour into it. All I can say is that  using the dodge stick is your friend. Like all other GoW games, dodging at the right time will negate all injury no matter if they hit you or not. It saves your ass in boss battles.

Hmmm, I don't remember that boss being such a bugger...

Progressive scan in God of War II makes the game look worse. Every time I load it up I fool around with the settings and muuuuuch prefer it off. It just looks too jagged. I wouldn't worry about the fact that you can't get progressive scan to work for the original, tbh.

At the final area in GoW2! Will be joining you guys next week...

Thanks, I'll give up on progressive scan.

About that boss, I took a look on the net and getting stuck there is common enough that there are quite a few hits on it. I took a look this morning at the controller and I think the button might be a bit mushy. I'm going to try switching controllers tonight.

For God of War and other quick tap games I will quickly place my controller on my right leg and tap as fast as I can with the index finger instead of my thumb. I find that to be faster for me.
2140  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Game of the Month Discussion, May/Jun 2009: God of War on: April 30, 2009, 02:44:54 PM

2141  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: So it begins..... on: April 30, 2009, 02:04:25 PM
Reading that story, how could the company be criminally fined for that. The worker who got attacked was performing maintenance on it and thought he had cut power to it, but obviously he didn't. So isn't it his fault he got hurt? I would  compare this to a furnace repair man who forgets to cut the gas and blows himself up.

But yeah, it does make a good story about killer robots.
2142  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gothic 2 gold worth $10? on: April 28, 2009, 02:45:42 PM
I'd say it's worth it. It adds an entirely new campaign within the game. I would guess it takes anywhere from 10 to 15 hours to beat the addon stuff. So that's less than $1 per game hour. The add on really doesn't add to the main storyline at all though, it's just more G2 goodness. Heck I would play the addon over G3 any day.

Give me WoW, LoTR Online and Fallout 3 and I could be good for at least 3 months. After that I would start to make up the imaginary friends too.

Uh guys, we're already predicting the future, your mind does it every single moment you're alive, it's how we humans exist.  But, it's no special trick.

Instead, you have to realize that there is a very small delay between what every human perceives with his senses, this includes the act of sensing and the brain processing that raw data into something usable.  Because of this, all brains have a basic ability to use prior information to predict what will happen in that delay.

This is also why certain optical illusions work.  Certain patters to the human eye are processed by the brain that trigger a predictive response.

Taking this even further, we also predict the weather somewhat accurately two to three days in advance.

It's all a lot of probability and stuff.  And there is no absolutely predicting complex events down to small details, and no absolute predicting of everything due to the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle.

I guess what I'm saying is, predicting the future, remains in the realm of science fiction, but it's pretty cool to realize the amazing stuff we're doing along those lines right now.  Isn't science cool?

So what you're saying is that my prediction about the GT update is coming true based on my triggering of a predicitve response?  icon_twisted

Drum Roll...

The Winner is...

God of War!

Dust off those PS2s. We'll start in a week. I'm excited for this one. I hope I can finish it though. I played a half hour of God of War on the PSP. I thought it was hard.


The first Boss in the PSP version (The Dragon thing) is one of the hardest bosses in the game. After that one the rest of the bosses are easy to medium.

The PSP2 if it is announced.

Also Wii exclusives. I think they are going to announce another Wii Zelda and hopefully another Mario platformer.

Also Drake's Fortune 2.

I've done reviews for WipeOut HD, Siren, Savage Moon,  The Last Guy, Warhawk's last expansion and I'm working on one for Burn Zombie Burn. 

I know for sure we had one for Ratchet and Clank Quest for Booty.

I have unofficially become the PSN reviewer guy though. If there is a specific game you want done we can always ask for press coverage of it from the developer, sometimes they will give us early access.

Ron was there any mention of the DL content ever coming to the PS3? That's the only version I have and if it's not coming to the PS3 then I will trade in for the PC version. I thought we would see them brought over within reasonable time. But no mentions makes me think it won't happen.

Quote from: Farscry on April 22, 2009, 02:10:01 PM

There are a significant number of UFO incidents and other phenomena that have yet to be truly explained.

Like what? We don't have to go around explaining every fuzzy picture of a Frisbee or weather balloon. We don't have to explain the origin of every crop circle. These things are not proof or even consideration of alien life.

When a police officer witnesses a crime and then reports that crime to the court, it is considered solid evidence that the crime happened. Police officers have reported witnessing UFO's. This is some evidence that an "Unknown Flying Object" has been spotted in the Earth's atmosphere. But it is not proof that it was an intelligent alien.

My point is that plenty of people we would consider to be credible in other aspects of life have come forward and reported seeing UFO's. Thus from those reports people could believe that there are UFOs, we just have to make a really long jump to say their reports are proof of intelligent aliens.

Is the PSP version of God of War just an enhanced version of the original PS2 version? Or are the stories and content pretty different?

the PSP GoW is it's own game, with a story that takes place before the events of either of the PS2 games. 

personally, i'll be voting for God of War as the next GotM...been wanting to play the series ever since i picked up my PS3 almost nine months ago, and GotM would give me the perfect excuse to pick them up icon_cool

Actually GoW PSP takes place between GoW1 and GoW2. It's a really good game too. The only down side to it is that it can be beaten in about 6 hours.

I haven't seen Sundays episode yet. My wife and I are actually enjoying this season quite a bit. Season 13 was the first one we didn't watch all the way through. Mostly because we couldn't find any teams to root for. This season is different though. It's the first one in a long time where I haven't found a team I despise and want to see lose. All of the teams seem to be composed of decent people who don't bicker with one another. Perhaps the only team I would not want to see win the whole thing are the Brother and Sister Lawyer team. The brother thinks he is way smarter than he really is and it's a bit annoying, but still, he is no where near as bad as some of the people in the past.
