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 spotted Dead Space for the PS3 at $29.99 as part of a price drop and I picked up Ninja Giaden DS for $14.99 as part of  a price drop.

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.

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.
2371  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.

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

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.

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.

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.

My theory is that the "Evil Metal Bitch" is actually fighting against the future Skynet Robots.

Yeah, it doesn't seem like she's trying to protect the Skynet-kills-everybody future.  My guess is she's going for some sort of timeline where terminators get invented, but humanity isn't wiped out.


Yet she wipes out someone on her own staff who doesn't agree with her, wipes out everyone in the facility that was doing something with terminator alloys, John Henry insinuates that she wiped out several employees who are recorded as having left the company, and she hints that Ellison may be wiped out if he outlives his usefulness.

She also hints that the survival of the little girl is inconsequential to the survival of John Henry. It doesn't sound like an entity who is too concerned with whether everyone dies or just mostly everyone.

We've already noted that John Henry can lie, and he was just recently taught to lie by Ellison and Liquid Mommy terminator. How much easier would it be for liquid mommy terminator to lie, especially since that's the whole reason for the shapeshifting - infiltration and subterfuge.

Here's the difference I see. Skynet is after the complete annihilation of the human race. They kill to kill. Evil Bitch seems to only kill when she has to for her mission. The liquid on the sub killed the initial human she saw, then it hid until it delivered the message. It could have gone on a killing spree and killed everyone there, but it didn't. While Evil metal chick will kill I don't think it is her purpose or her sides purpose to kill humans. Humans just get in the way sometimes. When Evil metal chick went to the warehouse in the desert she went there to destroy it, I assume this was a skynet facility, she killed everyone there, not because it was her job to kill, but because she had to erase the place from history.

my understanding of dmd's question was that he was asking about the sub episode and the appearance of the liquid metal robots, not about the validity of scraper's theory.  perhaps i misunderstood what he was asking about.
I'm a little sick, so my thought processes are not up to par(I was being dense).  When I read sub episode, I was thinking mini episode, not submarine episode.  I saw both, but still didn't catch that the liquid in the box was a European flavor.  I was also thinking about a tie-in to the upcoming movie, but I guess that'd be too much to ask. 

Yeah this is all my theory like Disarm said. But the Submarine went to Europe to pick up the package, the package was actually the liquid terminator who had a message for future John Connor. John asked them (whoever them is) if they would join him. They said no. So I assume that wherever the liquid terminator is from, it is separate from Skynet. The liquid terminator also killed a human very freely so I assume it's not under the control of other humans in Europe.

With all of these assumptions it's not a stretch to then think that the "evil metal bitch" is actually from the same line of terminators as the liquid one on the sub and that they are working against skynet. Heck they could even be John Henry of the future terminators. Evil Bitch even said in the last episode that the future of the human race may depend on John Henry.
2396  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles Season 2 on: April 06, 2009, 12:15:37 AM
My theory is that the "Evil Metal Bitch" is actually fighting against the future Skynet Robots. She is one of the European Liquids that we saw in the sub episode that is independent and is actually trying to develop John Henry to combat the future Skynet. Thus the current John Henry's brother is actually the Skynet computer. Nothing else really makes sense given all the clues they have dropped. Of course we still have one more episode to find out. I really hope it gets picked up. The fact that there is a new movie coming out may help its chances.

Yeah, what's even weirder is the fact that there is actually an invite system for the PS3.

A friend and I used it while playing RE5, however the system is extremely clunky, not well integrated into the XMB right now, but it does work.

Basically you have to press the home button when in a game that is invite compatible (like RE5), go to your friends list, and select a friend.  When his gamer card pops up, it may take a few seconds to load, but there will be options at the bottom.  The left most option should say "Menu" and if you select that it will interface with your currently running game, giving you the option to send that player in invite.

The receiving player basically has to do the same, opening up the in-game XMB, finding you on the friends list, then going to your gamer card and using the menu option to accept the game invite.

I didn't know that. But could Sony make that process any clunkier? I can't help but think that if Sony had decided to assign all of their home development team to improving the XMB interface, instead of working on Home, the console would be a lot more user friendly.
2399  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 voice chat on: April 01, 2009, 08:27:28 PM
This issue drives me nuts and the software developers resistance to putting an easy to find friends connection within multiplayer games is another hot issue. If I want to play RE5 with a friend who I can see is online and playing the game I have to use the phone to call them, find out what level they are on, then randomly search through the small server list and hope I find his game. Crappy.
