Yeah I get that. But DICE's post support blows.  You're telling me they didn't have the foresight to have some new maps already done at launch? They're leaving money on the table. It's bad business and bad for fans.

Well, I believe it's been said before that in BF1943 DICE got people to pay to be in the BFBC2 beta.

I'm not exactly sure which part of the game you're on. Honestly, on normal I found the game to be comfortably challenging, and I'm the kind of person who gets annoyed with difficulty pretty quickly.

I didn't have much of a problem with the enemies who are deep in the screen because the game locks on to the nearest enemy and you can just pull the trigger. Most likely you will kill everyone. Make sure you are using cover, and go for headshots. You can also hop about to avoid gunfire. Also, there are a lot of ways to get mass kills if you look for them - some things as simple as explosive barrels, others more clever. It's also always best to enter a room crouching and with the flashlight off, as you will more than likely be able to stealth kill several guys.

OK, I finished the game today but I must have done something wrong.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I was at the point where you have rescued Claire and are now searching for the 4 or 5 extra suit pieces. I had gotten one or two and was directed to one that looked like a larger gun (I had just gotten the jump boots, I think ).

I headed over there and I couldn't see the route to get at the gun. I was in a room filled with a lot of computers and guys and the blue line said I should go up. However, I couldn't see any opening in the ceiling or any secret panels. The next room over was also supposed to have an opening in the ceiling, but I couldn't spot anything there either.

There was another point highlighted on the map (kind of the blue "explosion" with exclamation point) so I figured I needed to go there. However, that triggered an explosion in that area I had to run from and when I reached the surface I could no longer go back in. So I followed the next path it gave me and that wound up being the last boss fight.

After I was done I reloaded my save and tried to see if there was a way back into that area, but it didn't seem possible.

I finished at level 17, so it seems you need to play at some of the higher levels in order to reach 50 without playing through quite a few times.

I'm able to look at leaderboards by friends, but they haven't updated since the first time I played the game. However, when I play the game it shows my rank accurately (when I pass someone in number of melee kills, for example).

I wasn't emailed my stats either.

Well, I didn't completely embarrass myself, but the Cowboys lost to the Bucs 7-0.

At the end of the first quarter, Tampa Bay drove down to the Dallas 30 and Derrick Ward took a toss to the right side. Terrence Newman had an angle to drop the runner behind the line of scrimmage. I took control of him and promptly missed the tackle (I don't know that the CPU would have managed it either). Ward rumbled in for a TD.

http://www.easports.com/media/play/video/8638161

Nick Folk missed a 49 yard field goal in the 3rd quarter, but the Cowboys managed to prevent any other points being scored, helped in part by a Ken Hamlin INT off of Leftwich. There were several dropped interceptions that might have given me the game at times.

At the end of the 4th quarter, I managed to put together a nice drive, getting inside the Tampa 30. Romo was sacked and left the game, replaced by John Kitna. On 3rd and 17, Kitna rolled out to his left and found Marion Barber wide open underneath. However, several defenders converged and he only managed 9 yards.

http://www.easports.com/media/play/video/8638146

The 4th down play was unsuccessful and the Bucs ran out the clock, ending the game.

Played a practice game last night against my opponent this week the Redskins.

They do some truly bizarre crap sometimes.

I did the same thing the other night against the Bucs. I rolled all over them, but I was playing with my stellar Madden IQ of about 415. I have a feeling it will be a much different story on All-Pro.
7013  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: So I have this backlog of games... on: August 21, 2009, 01:13:49 PM
I think if you are going to try and make an actual dent in the backlog, you should target some games that won't take that long. Regardless of how good it is, something like FFXII is going to take you hours and hours. I'm a big fan of 3D platformers, and you've got a bunch of good ones in there that are fun and are probably in the 10-15 hour range. Any of the Ratchet and Clank games are good targets, the Jak games (although 2 can get a bit frustrating), Daxter on PSP. Tomb Raider Underworld and the new Prince of Persia are both pretty short and not too hard while entertaining.

I just resubbed Netflix after a long hiatus and was in the mood for some anime. If you could only choose 5 anime to watch, which would they be (bonus points if they are instant watch on Netflix smile )

I have actually seen quite a few of the big ones (Ghost in the Shell, Akira, Grave of the Fireflies, bunch of Miyazaki, etc.) but it's been a while and I am open to rewatching some. I just re-watched Ghost in the Shell and I remembered very little of it. I also understood it a lot better this time smile

Man I was looking at the Giants recievers and they all suck. Can you see free agents from the website. Didn't look like you could..



Yeah, picking up free agents seems to be the one thing you can't do from the web site. It even lets you set up trades.

You should be able to pick up free agents from the website. Go to rosters, select add/drop players, and it will show a list of your players and a list of the free agents. This list can be sorted by position, name, or the players overall rating. Your players will have a red x to drop them, and free agents will have a green check mark to pick them up.

Unless I am just completely missing it, I don't have an option for add/drop players. Might be commissioner only?
7016  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / "The Asylum", the most unapolagetically bad movie production company ever on: August 20, 2009, 05:58:43 PM
While browsing Netflix I came across a movie called "The Transmorphers", about giant robots on earth that can transform...er...transmorph. I had to know more, so I looked it up on IMDB and found out that it was made by a production company called "The Asylum". They have a fairly long history, but while they started out just making schlock, in recent years they have just taken to churning out movies based on current blockbusters, in some cases just barely changing the name. Examples:

Transmorphers: Fall of Man (2009)
The Terminators (2009)
The Day the Earth Stopped (2008)
100 Million BC (2008)
War of the Worlds 2: The Next Wave (2008)
2012 Doomsday (2008)
I Am Omega (2007)
30,000 Leagues Under the Sea (2007)
Universal Soldiers (2007)
Invasion of the Pod People (2007)
Transmorphers (2007)
Snakes on a Train (2006)
Pirates of Treasure Island (2006)
The Da Vinci Treasure (2006)
When a Killer Calls (2006)

I just bought BFBC and I really can't see any huge flaws with it. Maybe because I play for fun and not for competition slywink.


Well, the biggest flaw was the lag, which doubtfully exists now that community is a lot smaller. I know Hark also finds the hit detection to be really sketchy, but I have a hard enough time hitting any target any time that I don't notice that smile

 The reason I stopped playing BC was because GT people were playing less often and I found that it was rare that I would wind up in a squad with random people that had their mic on and wanted to work together. The big maps are great, but there's nothing more boring than continually spawning at the base and having to haul ass all the way back to the objective. I am looking forward to BC2 because I like the weapons and classes and point and patch systems. Single player was pretty fun, too.

How do you guys get videos uploaded like that?


When you are inside the game, pause and go to the highlights menu and you can pick a play to use to create a highlight.

After you finish the game, use the main menu (I think it is in the My Madden sub-menu) to view your saved highlights. You can choose your replay and upload it. It will go to your EA Sportsworld account (which you may need to create online and link to your gamertag - might want to do that first).

Yeah, I checked out the website when I got to work this morning. Very cool. In game it looks like a commishioner doesn't have much power, but it looks like all the power has been put into the website. Good. If I have to do some crazy corrections to the rosters, I would much rather do it on the internet than through the xbox. I just wish that I could invite people to join the franchise from the website. If you can, I didn't see it.

I think you might be right because I was playing around with it and saw my lineman try to muscle his way through the o-line - there needs to be a better manual than the "cheat sheet" they give with the DVD case. I have a feeling I'll be picking up the strat guide.
7033  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Madden 10 Impressions on: August 18, 2009, 01:57:24 AM
I haven't done any research into it, but I was surprised they took out lead blocking, since that was a cool feature. They also took out defensive lineman power moves (swim move, etc.) They did, however, put strafe back in for the defense for all difficulty levels (in '09 you could only do it for rookie and pro, which I didn't understand).

The thing I really miss are the training camp minigames (I'm not sure what year that went out). They really taught you the controls for the individual players, including punting and kicking. Now they have the virtual trainer, which doesn't do much, and the weird 50 yard dash and bench press things.

Achievements are also kind of interesting this year - you have to be playing all-pro to get any of them.

I was always bummed that he left his audience behind when he could have kept following his character types into college, their 20's, 30's, etc. I don't know why he went in the direction he did, primarily making kids movies. It's also interesting that he completely stopped directing quite a while ago. He had an incredibly solid run in the 80's and I will always keep coming back to those films. I'd like to think that despite the setting, high school kids today can still relate to 16 Candles, Breakfast Club, Some Kind of Wonderful, Ferris Bueller, etc.
