I joined this morning before leaving for work. The online franchise web site is very cool - it lets you make trades, set depth charts, etc. There are some odd things, such as the depth charts not being pre-populated with the game's current settings and it showing that there are a bunch of Tuesday night games, but it does say it is in "beta" smile

Bad Company 2 delayed to March 2010. Guess that is for the best, though, because it was originally scheduled to come out within a month of MW2.

Yeah, I'm not sure why it was snowing in SF.  I selected live weather, and it should have been in the 80's.

Many times when I would choose a quick game in Madden '09 it would be snowing in Dallas. Guess they haven't gotten that ironed out yet. biggrin

I forgot to mention that I had a facemask penalty when I played earlier. I looked at the replay and you could clearly see the defender pulling on the facemask. Very cool.

I'm pretty sure the line moves are still in but they just don't explain it anywhere. Moving the right stick seems to do something at least. Or I could be imagining it. slywink I was playing with

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.
7447  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.

okay got my rank 50

been trying to get the squad avenger postcard but its slow going,sometimes when i avenge someones death it comes up avenger bonus,sometimes it doesn't..not sure why

i do know that when i get this postcard i am never being in a squad again unless its with friends...they are all dumb as fuck

haven't got a clue why people who spend the entire game in planes want to be in a squad,as we can never spawn on him,and when we can he is on the aircraft carrier waiting for another plane to appear...annoying,why can't they just go it alone

i got 10 squad avenges that takes it to a grand total of...10,that i know of crybaby

If it took you 5 days to get to 50 it is going to take me forever

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.

I've read the original story - it's not really suited for a feature length movie. It has kind of a funny twist at the end, but it's pretty short and low on action.

People have talked about protecting the screen, but it seems like it would be very easy to build in a thin cover that swings around and clips to the back when you are using the device. I don't know if that's what they'd do, but it seems logical.

They must have a lot more ranks in 1943 than Bad Company if you haven't hit top rank yet. I believe it took me just over 2 days playtime to hit top rank in Bad Company and I don't exactly earn points very quickly.

Bailing out of an airplane and watching it go boom and take out a couple of enemies with it = priceless.

Do you get points for that?

That's a good question. I think I've bailed out of a jeep and it has hit people and I've scored the kill and the points. And I've noticed that there seems to be a 'period of ownership' that when you destroy a vehicle you still get the destroy a vehicle points even though the enemy has jumped out of it.

So I'm guessing that technique is a pretty effective way to get kamikaze kills. If I could aim the plane that well I might even try it.  nod

There's a video on Youtube of a guy pulling way up in the air, diving straight down onto enemies and jumping out before the crash, and he gets points for the kills. The video is of him doing this over and over again. There might be a window of time where the kills count (like the fact that you can still get vehicle destroy points for a period of time after the enemy has exited) but I don't know.

Wow, what is up with those bonuses? +2300? You get points for stopping someone's killstreak, too. I wonder what some of the other killstreaks are - that's a big grid of things to unlock.

Having quite a lot of fun with this - in the middle of liberating the Badlands right now. I found one really strange glitch. I was carrying out a hostage rescue in Dust and grabbed an EDF APC to get out of there. I hit something and suddenly the vehicle started bouncing all over the place. Sort of like the GTAIV swing set glitch if you've ever seen that, but not as strong, and also the vehicle kept bouncing when it hit the ground. It took quite a while before I actually had control of the car again. It happened to me a couple of times (I wound up failing because of it and had to retry) so it must have been a specific part of a building or crate that I was hitting.

Nisan didn’t mean to fall in love with Nemutan. Their first encounter — at a comic-book convention that Nisan’s gaming friends dragged him to in Tokyo — was serendipitous. Nisan was wandering aimlessly around the crowded exhibition hall when he suddenly found himself staring into Nemutan’s bright blue eyes. In the beginning, they were just friends. Then, when Nisan got his driver’s license a few months later, he invited Nemutan for a ride around town in his beat-up Toyota. They went to a beach, not far from the home he shares with his parents in a suburb of Tokyo. It was the first of many road trips they would take together. As they got to know each other, they traveled hundreds of miles west — to Kyoto, Osaka and Nara, sleeping in his car or crashing on friends’ couches to save money. They took touristy pictures under cherry trees, frolicked like children on merry-go-rounds and slurped noodles on street corners. Now, after three years together, they are virtually inseparable. “I’ve experienced so many amazing things because of her,” Nisan told me, rubbing Nemutan’s leg warmly. “She has really changed my life.”

Nemutan doesn’t really have a leg. She’s a stuffed pillowcase — a 2-D depiction of a character, Nemu, from an X-rated version of a PC video game called Da Capo, printed on synthetic fabric.

They have started to explain things and will have to explain a lot more in the upcoming season. You do find out why there are polar bears there (I think that was season 2) but the things that they hinted at about Walt have not really been touched on. They may have abandoned it entirely or they may eventually come back to it, but I have a feeling they will not.

and i need 1 stamp(get 10 squad assists)<<no idea how to get this,i know its 10 in a game..not altogether

I was so annoyed because I got this stamp (teamplayer) and then the server we were on shut down and all the stats I had for the hour or so prior were lost, along with the stamp. I think the easiest way to do it is to have a squadmate who is good with the tank. Keep getting in the gunner seat and soften people up with the machine gun, but let the driver kill them. Or don't shoot at all and hope you don't get shot out. Jarrod was driving when I got it, so he might be a good choice smile

I LOVE the Resident Evil movies...every single on of them... As for Aliens 3?? Why the hate for that? That should be reserved for Alien 4, which was a blight on the series...gods I hated the last 2 thirds of that movie...

A lot of people didn't like Alien 3 because they kill off Hicks and Newt before the movie has even really started, and it was a big change from Aliens. There are also a lot of interesting Alien 3 scripts out there that people wanted to see. Me, I like David Fincher and I like the movie for what it is. Alien Resurrection is an abomination. I was so excited when it came out and it was such a letdown.

I started playing Valkyria Chronicles this weekend and I have to say I am getting hooked. I have tried to play some strategy games in the past like Final Fantasy Tactics or Advance Wars, and I have never been able to get into them. I didn't like the restrictions of having to move square to square, and especially not the RPS-style gameplay of Advance Wars. Valkyria Chronicles reminds me a little bit of the style of play of Combat Mission, where you are free to move where you want and fire on who you want, but are affected by terrain, cover, line of sight, angle of attack, character morale, etc. Of course that's where the similarities end.

Anyone have suggestions for similar kinds of games? I have always heard good things about Jagged Alliance, but the reviews for Jagged Alliance DS have been awful.
