As a joke, I hope at some point they are basically able to have Echo be "Faith". Or at least just have her say "five by five" once.

Lost is definitely worth watching. Heroes is backing up on my DVR but I'm pretty sure it will get deleted. I'm also way behind on Sarah Connor - save or delete?

I was just about to give up on Sarah Connor.  I was never a big fan of the show and I felt it was getting sillier by the week.  However, this past Friday night's show was such an incredible departure from the usual angst ridden episodes of Sarah pouting over how badly she feels about John's childhood that I was convinced to give it a stay of execution.  It was almost as if they hired a whole new writing staff that knew how to craft a good story full of action and mystery.

I agree, last weeks episode was really good. It finally showed John being an in control badass, and it did this without him ever even firing a gun or getting into a fight. He put everyone in their place.

Now the series needs to get back to John actually being hunted by a freaking terminator.

No, let's try this again. The correct answer was "Teggy, it blows. Delete it and use the free time to do something productive."

I was so close...

BTW - http://www.tvguide.com/News/Battlestar-Galacticas-Ron-1004256.aspx?rss=breakingnews
This is an interview with Ron Moore where they ask him point-blank about a lot of the finale stuff. 

Unfortunately, this pretty much sums up the final season:

Quote
There's a lot of different ways you can look at it, but the more we talked about it, the more we realized there was more in the ambiguity and mystery of it than there was in trying to give it more definition in the end.

Well if you watched "the last frakkin special" or whatever it was called on Sci Fi, there's a point in the show where they talk about struggling with the ending. They basically say that what made the show was the characters, so they said "screw the plot" (I believe that was a direct quote), let's just show the characters doing what we want them to do.

EDIT: yeah, and if I had read the article first, I would have seen that this idea is basically repeated in the first paragraph  icon_redface

Don't want it + Not willing to pay for it = Cool

Pretty much it.  There's no line you can draw that will work for everyone.  Pricing them is more of an art than a science.

This is true, although I am more concerned that every game is going to start shipping without an ending and then you'll have to buy it later. An exaggeration, but we've already seen it happen.

7209  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / DLC - what's cool and what's a money grab? on: March 23, 2009, 06:11:07 PM
I've been buying some DLC lately and I'm kind of torn on whether I should be paying for some of it. What are people's opinions on when the developer is getting you to pay $70 or $80 for their game or when you are getting a good deal?

I haven't gotten Lost and Damned yet, but I won't have a problem buying this. It's a brand new story with brand new characters and brand new weapons and adds 12-20 hours of content.

I have, however, purchased the Prince of Persia Epilogue - this is about 3 hours of additional content (there is an achievement for finishing it in under 2) where you fight the same bosses from the original game a number of additional times, although there is one new additional power. Worth $10? Probably not, but I enjoy the gameplay so I wanted to play some more and find out what happened with the story.

I also purchased the Tomb Raider Underground DLC and started the first one. The first one is an additional level that, from what I understand, was supposed to be in the game but wasn't finished. No new weapons and not much story. The second one I believe allows you to play a new character with new powers. $20 for both? $10 for both and I would have felt better, but they got me anyway.

I don't think this is like horse armor, at least, but I'd say that the PoP and Tomb Raider levels are setting a dangerous precedent.

Count me among the ones who felt let down, but maybe that was due to personal expectations. I was hoping there would be something concrete to tie everything together. All of what had passed seemed like it could now be explained by the continual recreation of the cylons in society and then eventual destruction. The myths, religions and prophesies made sense as stories that evolved to try and explain those events in the past. However, in the end, the explanation was essentially supernatural - something was pulling strings and there were angels and ghosts. Starbuck's sudden disappearance was a big wtf.

I finished Prince of Persia (and went back to get all 1001 light seeds) and played through about 3/4 of the Epilogue DLC, played through about 1/2 of the first Tomb Raider Underworld DLC and made a teeny bit of progress on my Killzone 2 elite run. And I played 1 round on each of the new CoD 5 MP maps.
7213  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Joss Whedons Dollhouse starts Friday on: March 21, 2009, 01:35:04 PM
So, there were definitely some interesting revelations in the episode. I think the big problem with the show is that it used Eliza Dushku as Echo, so it feels like she is the main character. However, you can't really have a main character without a fairly consistent personality, because there is nothing for the audience to hook on to. You have to think of it more of an ensemble, I suppose. I'm curious as to how they are going to address this as the show progresses (assuming they give it the chance).

7215  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Joss Whedons Dollhouse starts Friday on: March 20, 2009, 05:58:24 PM
I've kept up - it's been entertaining enough to stick with. I hope this episode gives us some idea of where it is going. As it is it is very hard to see a long-term arc for Echo as she plays a different character every time. We see that she is remembering a little bit of each character after she is erased, but that plays into a full 2 seconds of each episode. I feel like at some point Echo has to become a full character of some sort when she has _not_ been imprinted. Perhaps she will start to become some sort of super-doll who can access the skills of anyone she has been imprinted with? I think that's what they imply happened with Alpha.

XBL is having "Billing problems" according to this post by Major Nelson.

finally got the points, now just to wait for the thing to download.

I was still unable to get points as of about 10 minutes ago (got further than before, but still couldn't make it). I was ready to play this again, too frown  At least I made some good progress on Prince of Persia.

edit:  ok, I finally was able to get the points through the website and queue up the map pack. I'll have to turn on my console tomorrow morning.

7224  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Most inconvenient birthday evar! on: March 17, 2009, 12:34:08 AM
Really, "worst birthday ever" sounds so severe. This one has been a bit on the sucky side.

Today is my 36th birthday. The whole "closer to 40 than 30" feelings aside, I was willing to keep my chin up. However, I didn't sleep well last night and was pretty much sleepwalking through the day. My stomach didn't feel all that wonderful and I was pretty much hoping my wife didn't have anything elaborate planned, because all I really wanted to do was go home and relax.

I left work at 5:30. My drive home is about 12 miles or so and takes about 15 minutes over a short stretch of I-95, happily moving against traffic. Today I was greeted with a parking lot on the on ramp to I-95. At 6:10 I called my wife to tell her I was stuck in traffic and had not even merged on to 95 yet.

Hm, that's very strange, I notice as I am talking, my car is revving at 2000 RPM even though I am not in gear (my car is my wife's old 1997 Saturn couple with a manual transmission).  I fixed that by giving it a little gas, no problem. Hm, that's very strange, there's smoke coming out of the hood. Problem!

At this point I have no clue as to what the source of the smoke is. As far as I know my car is about to explode in a ball of flame like in the movies. Somehow, as all this is happening, I am merging on to 95 and a sliver of breakdown lane starts opening up. I manage to pull the car up to the point where my entire car can fit in the breakdown lane, get the hazards on and get out of the car. There is something pouring out underneath the car. I decide I don't see any flames, so I get the hood open and it appears that something is going on with the coolant tank. Exactly what, I have no idea, but I know I am not going anywhere.

Thank goodness for AAA, although I realize in this traffic I have no idea how anyone is going to reach me. After calling in, I am set to pace the side of the highway trying to keep warm (I think it was hovering around 40 degrees, so again, could have been a lot worse). During this time, two of my coworkers drive by asking if I need help, including my boss. Good for some temporary amusement. Called my wife for a little while, and then, as it was getting dark, the tow truck came through, at about 7PM.  We get the car up and merge into traffic to find out what was causing the whole mess. It turned out some bozo had put a backhoe on a flatbed without realizing it was too tall to get under the overpasses. Big mess.

At that point traffic cleared up, and I had the tow take me all the way near my house, because I didn't care how much it cost at that point (it wound up being $12 - again, could have been worse). My wife picked me up and took me home where she had made homemade Boston Creme Pie for me which I will enjoy later.

So, I'm home, I'm warm, I have food on the way. I guess the moral of the story is that while things may seem horrible at the time, really, things could be a lot worse. Well, until you get the car repair bill in the morning. Tongue

It would be nice if they actually stuck to those genres and stopped showing wrestling. There's too much junk on sci-fi to just channel surf it. All of the "sci-fi original movies" are trash. They should concentrate on quality original shows like BSG, Eureka, Stargate, (I suppose there is a market for Ghost Hunters and other shows along those lines) etc. and then try to be like a Boomerang for older sci-fi, mystery and horror shows. Things like X-Files, Quantum Leap, The Prisoner, Buffy, Twilight Zone, etc. Not saying they could get the rights to all of those series, but if they can keep up a consistent level of quality I think they'd do a lot better.

7227  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Killzone 2 - Single Player embargo lifted, new SP impressions and video on: March 15, 2009, 11:39:40 PM
OK, I have been continuing on with my elite playthrough. I've gotten about halfway through so far. It is definitely less frustrating than CoD veteran (or I would have given up by now), but there are still some parts that have made me want to throw the controller. While CoD veteran requires you to take just the right route so you can stop the forever spawning enemies, Killzone 2 elite requires you to find the best spot of cover that will allow you to stay significantly protected while you methodically pick off enemies and let your teammates help to ease some of the burden (although you'll find times, such as Visari Square, where your buddies will all be laying on the ground screaming for a medic.) In normal, you can run around a little, but in elite, if you get out of cover, you are pretty much dead.

The toughest part so far has been

Spoiler for Hiden:
After crossing the first part of the bridge, approaching the AA gun. I had no problem at all with this part on normal, but it was a major pain on elite. I still am not even sure how I beat it. If I tried moving up the middle, the enemies seemed to spawn endlessly, even when I was able to "snipe" the AA gunner with my rifle. I spent a very long time (I didn't time it, but I wouldn't be surprised if it added up to an hour over 2 days and a few sessions) trying to get through and tried different variations, such as taking a path up the left side or clearing out the middle with the rifle, then running back and getting the grenade launcher and trying to clear out the area where enemies were spawning from. What finally worked was taking cover way back near the gun rack and taking the AA gunner out at long distance, and then slowly moving up the middle. After fighting a little while, all the enemies were cleared out. The only thing I can think of is that normally the AA gun takes out a lot of your AI teammates, and by taking it out early, it allows the AI teammates to clean up.

I am still deathly afraid of the last boss battle (and the fight leading up to it) and will probably wind up not getting the trophy. I should at least get the 1500 kills smile

One other thing I forgot to mention before - in Killzone 1, Templar's first name was pronounced "Yahn" (spelled Jan), but in Killzone 2 they call him "Jan".

Finished up the single-player campaign the other day - you know, while frustrating, the end area/boss didn't end up ruining the experience.

Yeah, the thought of playing it on a tougher difficulty makes me cringe, but I'm not going to toss out the fun I had throughout the entire rest of the campaign.

And I only missed out on the secret trophy by 20 seconds!!!  Damn!

I decided to play some on elite last night. I got partway through the battle at the end of the 3rd chapter. It has checkpoints, but still very hard. Elite doesn't feel like CoD on veteran, which I loathe, but it has its frustrating parts. I will probably see how far I can go, although there are a couple of parts that I am pretty concerned that I won't be able to manage, one of which is the last boss fight - they give you very little health.

I got the last secret trophy, but I don't really know how. It's not clear where they start the timer from. I'm about 50 kills short of the 1000 kills trophy. I still haven't managed 5 kills with one grenade. There are a few that I doubt I will try for:

Spoiler for Hiden:
destroy all the pods when in the air-to-air gun, for example.

And of course, I seriously doubt I'll get the awards for being in the top % in MP for a week.

Yeah, those can be pretty nuts, but also very frustrating. That's a good time to take your squad on a side path to flank the enemy.

The other thing I absolutely love are the sounds the rifles make. Even though they are fictional guns, there is something very realistic about the sound they make. It reminds me of the way rifles sound when you see footage of fighting in the middle east on the news.

Finished up SP last night. Last boss fight was probably the only thing I didn't like about that game - it just didn't seem to fit in with the rest of the gameplay IMHO. There may have been a couple of places with CoD-style spawn points, but they were not nearly as offensive. I started playing again on Veteran to pick up some trophies. Turns out there is no trophy for finishing the game on Veteran, which is kind of surprising - I don't know if I really want to try playing on Elite. Having trouble getting the "kill 5 Helghast with 1 grenade" trophy. I found a place that seems good for it, but haven't been able to manage it. I have another place in mind, though. Probably needs to be done on easy difficulty or at least regular, because it seems you really have to get the grenade right next to the guy to kill in Veteran. Guys will go flying, but they will recover and get up.

When I am able to get in and the page loads correctly it does have my MP stats correctly. SP stats are way behind. Actually, if you are in-game and go to the SP stats screen, there is actually a button assigned to "upload stats to Killzone.com".

Yep.

You can also set the filter to look for games only at your ranked level.  That should help a bit.

Yeah, I have done that, but I don't think it keeps out people who are higher ranked than you. That worked for me the first 2 days, but yesterday I started getting into matches with all classes. It also wasn't the murderfest I was expecting, because you get higher classes on both teams. There was one guy who had 70 kills in a round of Warzone.

I had no idea controls were changed with the patch, I didn't notice any difference while playing last night.  If there is a change, it is probably subtle.  I mean if it suddenly became CoD4 tightness, I would have noticed immediately.

I hadn't played enough to notice any major difference pre/post patch. The one thing that annoys me a little bit is the delay from the time you press the zoom button until the sights are brought up, and that has not changed.

Regarding when you start the game - especially if you can get with an experienced squad, I don't think it will be a big deal. Yes, you will be less skilled with the controls, but that would be true of any mp game you were a latecomer to, regardless of genre. Even as a rifleman (first available class) you can have a role and get points. It should only take  3-4 hours to rank up to medic (less, if you have decent fps skills, which I do not) and then you can start getting points for healing which will help you rank up even faster.

And by the way, the really need to slap the "Beta" tag on the Killzone.com site ala the CoD site. It has a lot of great information, but it's slow if it even loads at all, and the stats are rarely up-to-date. The date pulldowns on the sign-in page also don't work correctly in Firefox.

Well, I believe I've made it to the last battle. I was happy with the difficulty level until I got to the last mission, where they seem to have ratcheted it way up. They do give you some checkpoints, even in the last battle, but I still failed many times and decided to take a break. Makes me feel pretty reluctant to play through the game again on a harder difficulty.

Spent some time in MP today and am starting to get a little better at it. The thing you really cant do in this game is move and shoot, because the crosshairs get really wide and you can't hit the broadside of a barn at that point.  Also, I just reached Sergeant 1st class but when I backed out, it didn't have my promotion. It's correct on the website, so I'm hoping it will be correct the next time I log in.

Some of the perks seem like they are going to be really hard to get - for example, it's kind of hard to concentrate on getting 10 headshots in a round. Then, to do it 8 times... I managed to get the search and destroy ribbon, but I can't imagine how long it will be before I get 8 (you have to set 2 charges or defuse 2 charges in a match).

Stopped by mine today and there was really nothing of interest left. Only thing that was tempting was the Diablo battlechest.
