Well, this is a first - I'm bumping my own 'what are you buying' thread. Why?

Because of this:

Quote
Content: Streets of Rage 2
Price: 400 Microsoft Points
Availability: All Xbox LIVE regions

Dash Text: [ESRB: E (EVERYONE) Fantasy Violence] Single Player, Live Multiplayer 1-2, Local Multiplayer 1-2, HD (High Definition). To commemorate their defeat of the Syndicate exactly one year before, Blaze, Adam and Axel went out to celebrate. The next morning, however, Axel received a frantic phone call from Adam's younger brother, Eddie 'Skate' Hunter. Blaze and Axel rushed over and found Adam and Skate's house wrecked and a picture of Adam chained to a wall at the feet of Mr. X. The city was returned to its nightmarish state and criminals were once again running rampant. Unable to contact their old friend in artillery, Axel and Blaze team up with Skate and Max Thunder to free the city and rescue Adam from the Syndicate. It is up to you to take down Mr. X once and for all!.

Go buy one of the best 2D fighters EVER made. Now.


I have some very fond memories of playing Streets of Rage on my sega genesis with my bestfriend til the wee hours of the morning

Thinking of using steam or d2d to purchase the expansion copy of Medieval  II: Total War Kingdoms, but I have the physical copy of the original game.  Will the D/L expansion work with my dvd copy?  Tried looking for answers on the faqs, but the best I could find is not to mix the steam or d2d version...anyone?

This game reminds me of Colonel Kurtz with all the "mad" dialogue.

The upgraded shotgun and machine gun definitely rip it up. I can stun lock a Big Daddy now.

Speaking of "mad" dialogue:

Spoiler for Hiden:
That Cohen guy is one creepy SOB




Spoiler for Hiden:
I had no problem putting him down after all the hoops he made me jump through.


Yep, I dropped him as well.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Even made it funny when Ryan remarked that Cohen must have lost his touch since he let me go.

There is a set of stairs in the Posiden area that has a gate over it.   I can't seen to find the button to open it .  I've defeated Cohen already and I should be moving on, but it's the last place unexplored on the map.  I was hoping defeating Cohen would open the area up but no luck.  Can someone spoil it for me?

Quote from: PeteRock on August 24, 2007, 05:06:37 PM

I have downloaded well over $150 worth of Live Arcade games onto my hard drive.  And my wife plays the hell out of almost every one of the titles I've downloaded under her own profile.  As many of you know, recently my 360 shit the bed and they sent back a new unit.  My wife used to spend a great deal of time playing all of the Live Arcade titles on our original 360, and now with our new 360 all of the Arcade titles only list the trial version under her profile. 

I understand that Arcade titles are accessible to all profiles on the original 360, but if you were to travel to a friend's house with your hard drive the games would only be accessible to the profile that downloaded them and only if you're signed in to Live.  In this case it's MY F-ING 360, but I'm in a situation where my hard drive is connected to a new 360, and so I'm subject to the BS I described above. 

Is there a way around this?  Because right now my wife is pissed?  As am I, since there is no F-ing way I'm paying for all of the same titles again.   icon_mad


I think you might have to call MS tech support on this.  if I understand your issue the Live Arcade games you d/l under your profile arenot accessible to your spouse under her profile?

  When the office filled with steam I immediately turned around and went back out and didn't go back in until the steam cleared so for me that guy was just an enemy wandering the room like normal.

The one that got me was the guy jumping out in the funeral parlor.  I knew it was going to happen but just didn't know where


Spoiler for Hiden:
Yep, I did the same thing instead he came out of one of the storage freezers.  What did scare me was when you get the Shotgun for the first time.  The Lights go out except the one you are under and you hear the running footsteps towards and splicers jumping at you in the circle.  Good fun!

You realize that the Ageia physics isn't just for hardware, it is also a software physics middleware solution, right?  It's just that they also have a hardware board to help accelerate it or add further enhancements.

I kinda figured that out after I couldn't play the demo and it said it was looking for some physx dll  icon_wink
 I don't think I have any other games that ever used it, so I just thought it was going to be an useless process for something I don't have running in the background.  When I saw something about it showing up in the system tray I decided to axe it.


Doesn't bioshock uses that software?  I could have sworn when I d/l the PC demo it had to install that on my rig to play the demo.  Anyway, tried the demo last night and I'm not impressed...I'll wait for impressions

Destructor, according to Tom Chick on QT3, if you see a Big Daddy sans Little Girl, you can follow him around and he'll eventually call out a Little Girl from her hiding place. 

Re: Hacking- so far (360 Version) I've only found one safe I would classify as hard and used an Auto-Hack to get by, it's just that I don't find the mechanic fun.  I can do the stupid puzzles alright, I just find them very boring. 


Personally, I like the hacking mechanic, and find it a fun and rather tense mini-game, but there are several safes I have found that I would classify as hard, if only because you start with two looping sections and have to immediately find and open up a new path. It's not easy.

Does anyone know if you're able to hack into machines right off the bat, or are you not able to start hacking into machines until a little later in the game?  Right now I've only made it far enough to see a Big Daddy absolutely pulverize a splicer that was trying to harm a Little Sister.  No hacking icons have come up yet when I come across a machine (the only one being the lightning bolt vending machine), so I'm assuming I learn to later, or else I'm doing something wrong.  Haven't played much, so that might be part of the problem (just not far enough in the game).


It will come later.  You should be getting a vending machine soon and there will be a secbot that you can hack,  You will know it when you see it

hey, what the heck am i doing wrong?  i have a cleric and i equipped him with the spiritual weapon spell.  however, when he casts it, it just sits there and does absolutely nothing.  no attack, no movement, nada.  do i need to do something after casting the darn spell?

You have to click on the square for the weapon to appear in.  If it's a spell that will equip your cleric with the weapon I believe you will have unequip the main hand weapon and then cast the spell.  This game is very rule specific.  I actually had to take a couple of feats for my cleric that I normally wouldn't have bothered with.  If you have a spell that requires hand movements well forgot equiping a shield unles you take to feat to be able to case spells without hand movements

I dont find the hacking to be an issue but I like the implemetation.

Here is a tonic tip in the medical area but it is a spoiler.

Spoiler for Hiden:
In the medical area you will see a blast furnace with a dead body on the slab. There is a security camera near by so hack that first. You can press "A" at the slab and the body will go into the furnace. Allow for some time to go by, I went upstairs and finished that room and when I returned to the slab there was an Engineering Tonic sitting in a pile of ash.

This game is definitely what you call a QUALITY title.


Actually, if you just wait it will be there.  That was a cool find

Played some last night and again this morning before heading to work.  Great game and gives me the creeps like SS2 did which is a good thing.   Some observation:

I really hope they explain why I would walk up to a strange syringe and jab myself with it....that in the beginning turned me off.
Spoiler for Hiden:
Dr. Steinman is a crazy fuck.  Reminded of the plastic surgeon in Escape from LA
Best moment in game for me in the Medical Wing.  I just cleared a room and hacked the security camera .  Went off to explorer some more and when I come out I am rushed by four leadhead  splicers and I whip out my shotgun and mow two down.  The other two ducks into the room with the seccam and it promptly calls in a secbot to help me finish them off.  Pretty freaking awesome.

Can anyone confirm this.  Not having a issue with the regular ammo or the silver ammo only the masterwork versions

BIOSHOCK!

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

After reading reviews and playing just a few minutes of the demo I've decided that I must have this game.  And because I'm so excited about the game I only played the demo for a few minutes so as not to spoil anything.  The reviews are just ridiculously high, even for the stingy review sites.  I wouldn't be able to call myself a gamer if I were to skip such an intriguing title.

I'm so anxious to play that my friend and his wife can even sense the anticipation and knowing that I won't have my 360 back until Wednesday have invited me and my wife over for dinner on Tuesday specifically so that I can play the game on their 360 and won't have to wait until Wednesday to play.

I'm also going to grab Madden '08.  I'll finally have my 360 back this Wednesday and can't wait to get back to gaming.

So uh... someone pointed out that I scheduled draft on Labor Day weekend.  I just happened to pick the weekend right after preseason (I hate when people get f'ed over by drafting someone who gets injured).  We *could* move it 1 week later, but that leaves us zero days to get things set before the first game of the season.  So... do we want to attempt to do it midweek?  Is there any time in between that makes sense for the majority?

Otherwise I'll just leave it where it is and let the chips fizall.

That was me.  smile i was actually going to make it to live draft when I realized that was Labor Day weekend.  I should be out of town and away from PC access.  My Draft is set...all 32 QBs  in my first 32 slots.  I shall make Hiro's draft look like a genius smile
