I'll admit I lost interest in SWG when I couldn't roll a Jedi from the beginning.  I left the game and never went back.  Kotor will need to do the sam thing as Sith/Jedi will need to be available from the start.

Well, this is more of the same,  but I enjoy the game play.  Wolverine is still my favorite next to Deadpool, but HULK is alot of fun as well.   HULK SMASH!!!! 


Anyway, just made it to Stark Tower after the New Warriors fiasco, so I think I'm getting close to picking sides

So yea, you know that deal with the Pre-order Juggernaut for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2? Turns out if you just put in a bullshit receipt # (00000/00-00 is the format) they just give you the DLC code for free. Supposedly they don't give a fuck about checking the number at all with other pre-order crap like this too.

Thanks!!!

Flacco came out throwing the ball for 43times for 300+ yds which was good, but the D that the Ravens are known for almost put up a clunker when it mattered. A win is a win, but the game shouldn't have been as close as it was.

Next up the Bolts..

UHC does have some HMO products offered under Optimum Choice & Mamsi.  Pay attention to the life time max on the policy.   HMO typically are unlimited, but the insurance normally controls the cost, but when you start moving to POS, PPO anb Indeminity then you run into the life time max.  I would suggest getting 1 million  policy and while you might think it's an obsessive amount remember Healthcare in America isn't cheap.


Oh, also make sure the plan doesn't have a per condition life time max...

Are they worth the price of admission?   I'm considering picking up a HP KS526AA for my HP G60 laptop.   Currently, I get about 2-3 hours on my current battery.  If I run a movie cut that down to maybe 60-90.   

So do there extended cell batteries work?

everytime i come to this site now there is another page added to this thread...you know i am gonna make a few pages also when i get them game tomorrow

i heard there is 240 Riddler trophies scattered about

so,do you think its worth getting the guide for this?..i like guides for games,but for games like this i use them at a minimum,but 240 Trophies scattered about,and i want them all..so i am undecided

I would say yes - mostly for the maps.  That is the one thing I find lacking in my 2 hours of gameplay.  A couple times I just got turned around and the in game map is pretty sparse.

As someone else said, I've never had a problem with the in-game maps... I think they're well done and just as much as you need.  Not sure where you get that they're sparse.

Also, spread out in each area is a Riddler secret map that shows where he has hidden the challenges....well gives you the approximate area of the challenges.   You still need to actually lock for them

Quote from: Glycerine on August 27, 2009, 03:24:51 PM

Played some more last night, still loving it.  l haven't quite got the combat system down yet, as the highest I can seem to get is a x6 multiplier.  I need to get better at smoothly moving from mob to mob, since I think it only gives you a second or two before you lose your multiplier.  The challenges sound like a good place to get some practice in.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I took down Bane after quite a few deaths, but it was a pretty thrilling fight.  When Joker sends in his thugs I would get them all grouped together trying to fight me, then jump out of the way right as Bane barreled through them.  Same thing with the huge chunks of stone he throws, stand in front of a thug and then jump out at the last second.  I swear I think he killed more of them than I did.

The scarecrow sequence was intense.  Slowing walking down the hall and I see a dead body, only to find out it's Jim Gordon!  Then I end up in a morgue with body bags up on slabs.  I unzip the first two in it's Bruce's dead parents, and each eerily turns and speaks about how they died because of him.  That was just flat out awesome, reminded me of the bathtub scene from Eternal Darkness.

Anyone else notice that the "quips" Joker says aren't always the same?  I've noticed, after dieing and having to redo and area, that he'll sometimes say something completely different.  Definitely game of the year material for me, and without a doubt the best super-hero themed game I've ever played.


Agreed!

Spoiler for Hiden:
There is another that happens as you exit a elevator.  You hear something spray and Batman coughs.  I'm thinking WTF just happened then you exit the elevator.

Great game!!

Near the Croc's cage there is a room with a breakable roof.  You jump down there is part of the Riddler's questions mark above the door.  One the floor outside is the period to complete it.  When I try o scan it in detective mode I get clues not aligned correctly.   What am I missing. No matter how I try to  scan the clue to complete the question mark I get this error.  Has anyone figured this one out

I'm reading The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks. I like it so far, but Rothfuss was better.

I've read the first two books in this series, but I gave up on the third.  I like the premise, but Week's executions of the story left a lot to be desired

I need to play with the sliders for certain.  I'm playing franchise with the Ravens (Pro Haven' played in a while) but I'm dominating the game.  Currently setting at 8-0.  Only rough game was against the Pats (damn Brady) which went into OT with me kicking a 47yd FG to win it.   The rough part of my schedule is coming up. two games against the Steelers (currently second in the AFC North 6-2) & Colts (first in the South). If it's true to real life NFL the Steelers game should be a true test for me.

Also, its a game - what would you like them to do? Look up, see you and shoot you?
Yes. Yes I would. Rather than pretty much having invulnerability by ratcheting onto the gargoyles... Perhaps when they actually se eyou jump up to the gargolyes they shoot at you. That would be a good middle ground...I guess.
I've actually been shot at while up on the gargoyles, so they can detect you doing that.
