Came upon something last night that seemed like some poor QA, but it was funny.  I wanted to get the achievement for losing a 4-star wanted level, so I drove on to the airport runway.  To get away, I summoned a helicopter and had Brucie take me to the top of some tall building in Algonquin.  I tell him to land, but it turns out there is already a helicopter on the helipad. He lands on top of the already parked helicopter, knocking it over, and crashes on the roof. Both helicopters are now inoperable. And the trip didn't even lose the cops, I had to get down to street level and grab a car to do that.

OK, I reeeeeally suck at this game.  I cannot get past the damn Russian Revolution mission.  I keep getting shot to hell.  WHoever thought haf baked cover controls means facing 35 freaking guys all specifically placed to put you in a crossfire was fun needs to be slapped.

Is Little Jacob helping you?  That makes the mission pretty much a breeze.

Is it possible that he doesn't help you?  I was wondering about that when it happened.  I thought that was just the way the mission was.

I really like the concept behind these games, but the reviews are pretty average. Is there fun to be had with either?

(Yes, I know there is a sequel to Stuntman and it is supposed to be better, but I am specifically asking about these last-gen titles).

This is something I wish xbox live would do - give a list of every game you've played and playtime on that game.  I don't think it would make me play less - I am most interested in if I am getting good value for my money.  But maybe that is exactly what MS doesn't want you to be thinking about.

Yes, the Wii tells you on a daily basis, but doesn't allow you to add up the time unless you write down each day's total and manually calculate (which I actually did when I was done with Mario Galaxy, because I was curious).

OK, my question: is there any way besides shooting to kill the pigeons?  I've tried knifing and I can't get it to work.  It just seems weird that the developers would require you to set off a wanted level every time you find one of the stupid things.

I've been able to fire off my gun without getting a wanted level. Just make sure there's no cops in the area. And yes, I know - easier said than done.

Believe me, I've tried.  Even though I think there aren't cops nearby, it turns out there are.  I've managed it a couple of times (like finding one in a tunnel).  I don't know why I'm even bothering, though.  There's no way I'm going to be able to find all 200 of the silly things.  I'm just kind of picking them off as they find them.

The game as a whole is great.  The last act sucks.

But any way, HL isn't just a shooter.  It's a story-driven action adventure game with puzzles.  So you have to look at it that way.  And consider the fact that it's 10 years old.  Half Life 2 is great (IMHO) but a similar idea.  It's not Call of Duty.

8409  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Challenge - No prize edition. on: May 05, 2008, 08:14:30 PM
I checked into goozex.com (what's up with that name?) and think it's kind of cool.  I'm going to try to use it to get rid of some of my older games that I know, in reality, I'm just not ever going to play.  Yes, it would be great and all if I could some day play Final Fantasy VIII, but I've had it for, what, 8 years already?  And I've never played more than a half hour. Stick it up there. Dino Crisis?  Yeah, like I'm really going to sit down and play a game where you control your character like a tank in this day and age. Don't fool yourself, Teggy, that game's going up.  Are you really ever going to play Psychonauts again?  No, get it on the list! Headhunter?  Dead to Rights? Outdated controls, the both of them. And so on and so on.

Now, I'm sure a bunch of the games will just languish up there, but this is a lot easier than eBay and if I can at least get rid of the easy sellers, and then I can worry about the rest of them later.  Super Mario Sunshine and Psychonauts are already on their way, and soon I'll have points so I can replace them with a game I know I will want to play.  Maybe I can even whittle down the box of PC games I have a little bit.

OK, I am going to have to stop reading this thread because there is too much interesting stuff being revealed that I want to be surprised about (I'm only at like 17%).  I will say a funny thing happened to me tonight when I took a cab, though.  I wanted to get the little achievement for riding out a trip from one borough to another, so I got in a cab in Bohan to go meet Roman in Broker.  We wound up in line at the toll on the bridge, and one of the cars somehow got wedged in and no one was going forward.  So I hit the "I'm in a hurry" button.  The cabbie breaks out of line and goes the wrong way through the toll, breaking the gate on the way through.  A cop is there so he sets off a star and we are being chased.  The cabbie drives like crazy, wrong side of the road, weaving, tight turns, etc. He escapes the cops, stars disappear, and he drops me off like he was just doing his job.  Pretty funny.

Although this game is technically a follow-up to F.E.A.R., the game will not carry the F.E.A.R. franchise name due to a shift in publishers -- instead, it will feature a new name for its frights.

Well, that won't be confusing at all.

that's what happens when the publisher keeps the name and the developer keeps the idea and the art and then proceed to split the relationship.

So, are they even able to make reference to the acronym or it's meaning in the game?

I must have missed that one.  There was a benefit to spending time in the strip club in Vice City, so I kept taking lap dances to see what would happen.  The only benefit I got was an interesting show.  Then 2 guys came in to throw me out but they didn't say why!  Well, at least that gave me the chance to practice fighting.

Went bowling last night to try and get a "turkey" (keep getting 2 strikes and missing the third  mad )...

I took Michelle to a pub offering darts and whooped her ass.  In the process I made it a point to earn the "score 180 points" achievement.  The "turkey" achievement is next on my list.  I can't remember, are there any pool achievements?


The pool achievement is just to beat one of your friends so you have to take someone there, like Michelle.  I have a feeling the turkey achievement is going to haunt me.  The QUB3D one took a while, but I could sense it was just matter of time, and the darts one was quite easy.  I'll probably leave the bowling one alone for a while and come back to it later.

By the way, those random guys will show up on your mini map as kind of a little cross. I initially ran into junkie guy randomly, but then noticed the icon on the map the second time he was available and went to see what it was. I think it's best to just go about your business and deal with them if you see them - there's just way too much area to cover in the game and too much to do to start hunting for things early on.

Oh, and does QUB3D make anyone elses LCD go crazy?  It's bright bright colors on a dark dark background, and after a while I don't think my tv was enjoying it, as it started to really bloom. At some point the bright clicked off but it eventually came back.  I don't know if that was the tv adjusting or what.

Hoping I don't sound dumb, but what is the difference between 1080i and 1080p? I've been waiting for a price drop, don't know much exept what I see in commercials, but would like to get something that's up to date at the time of purchase, and with all the cords and wires I need. Also a good, stable brand if possible. Looking for something from 37" to 40". Also, if I get a 37", do they come only in 720P, and is that good?


Both 1080i and 1080p have 1080 lines of horizontal resolution.  In 1080i, the lines are drawn in interlaced - 540 evenly spaced first, then the other 540 fill in the spaces, so there is potential for jagginess.  1080p the lines are drawn in from top to bottom, so it is smoother. 

720p has less lines of resolution, but it is still good - some people like it better than 1080i because it can be smoother.  Also, on a smaller set, more lines of resolution doesn't make as much difference as on a larger set.

http://www.gamesetwatch.com/2008/05/gta_iv_the_immigrant_issue.php


I thought I was going to have more of a conscience problem with some of the crime in the game, and I gunned an innocent police officer down so I could get into his car and find a van full of TV's.   icon_eek

Actually, in that mission

Spoiler for Hiden:
If you walk up the street a cop comes driving down in response to a call, parks in front of a house and leaves the car door open while he goes looking out back.  You can just get in the car.

It does seem that for every mission so far, there has been a way to get through without harming any bystanders or carjacking.  It would be interesting to try to play the game through with minimal collateral damage.  I have already run over bystanders (that's hard to avoid) and mistakenly carjacked taxis (didn't realize there were passengers), so I  have kind have gotten an "oh well" attitude at times.  I do try to steal parked cars instead of doing carjackings, though, if only to avoid getting a wanted level.

Thanks for the tips guys, much appreciated. Next question - how do you hail a cab, say if you wanted to take a taxi somewhere? seems I recall being able to do that in GTA3.

I think like the cell phone, that becomes available later.  Actually, I think the point at which hailing cabs becomes available is when you and Roman get piss drunk and have to find a way home.  I remember seeing a pop-up that suggested hailing a cab (most likely with directions on how to do so as well) as Roman and I were stumbling over ourselves, but our car was right there and I didn't think I had that much to drink.   

I know it's not tied to that because I haven't gotten drunk yet. I don't remember when it popped up - I think it was when I was trying to get to Roman's place after he called me once.

Then a MASSIVE ***** MOB of hobos came to his aid and took out the cops. More cops came, and more hobos came. It turned into a huge cops vs hobos fight which only ended when the cops pulled a helicopter out and peppered them all with bullets.
Once they were all dead, the cops left. A few seconds later another cop car pulls up and a cop gets out, walks up to me, and says "What's the problem here?"

Oh BTW, even with GTA4 out I did manage to log on yesterday long enough to red dot my M60 and hit level 44.

Yes indeed. It was a wasteland for the non GTAIV group last night. All but two people were playing it.

I felt bad when I only saw ATB playing COD4 and everyone else on my friends list was GTA.  Did it take forever to find a game in COD?

These are the numbers from 360voice (is there that shows all player stats?)  The number in parentheses is difference from previous day:

1. Call of Duty 4
9,341 gamers ( -1,432)

2. GTA IV
8,282 gamers ( 7,841)

3. Halo 3
6,451 gamers ( -1,959)

4. Rainbow Six® Vegas 2
2,792 gamers ( -807)

We'll have to see what tomorrow's numbers look like, but COD4's hit was much smaller than GTA's gain.  I had no problem getting a game yesterday afternoon.  I think people who really want to play an FPS aren't going to bother with GTA.

EDIT:  Looks like those were 2 days old.  The site was updated with yesterday's actual numbers:

1. GTA IV
32,430 gamers ( 24,148)

2. Call of Duty 4
5,629 gamers ( -3,712)

3. Halo 3
4,086 gamers ( -2,365)

4. Rock Band
2,014 gamers ( -483)

A big hit to COD4's numbers, but still, it looks like there's a difference between the people who play the 2 games.

We definitely had a more active TF2 group on OO, but I don't know how many of them migrated to GT.  If you're looking for a mature group to play with, the Gamers with Jobs group is a top notch bunch and their server is my favorite place to play ever since meeting them in the OO vs. Gamers with Jobs match.

Server?  Are you talking PC?

I'd love it if the game were able to recognize these things and Michelle would have kicked Nico to the curb after such an awful experience. 

Yeah, I was trying to be careful because I thought it would turn her off, but it was unnecessary.  For example, I didn't realize a taxi had passengers even though it seemed to pull over for me when I called (I think it was actually the taxi behind it that stopped, and I think the dome light is the key to availability, like in real life) and I wound up jacking it.  Michelle just hopped in the passenger side and we took the fares for a ride to her apartment.

So this whole game, of which I can "do anything/go anywhere" only works if I complete missions based on the specific criteria set by the developers thereby limiting my imagination?

Rockstar, you fail.

Wait a sec.   You were in a footchase with someone, they ducked down a side alley and lost you so that you had to come doubling back, and you think that is unrealistic?      Or maybe I'm interpreting what you were describing wrong.

yeah, it seems odd to complain about the way that mission was handled just because you were not l33t enough to keep up with him and see him bail out of his car
 Tongue


(I fully reserve the right to be a hypocrite about this later)

If this is the same mission I am thinking of (catching the guy named "Darden" or something after you beat up his goons), there was actually a note on the screen that said "chase Darden up the stairs".

We both get in and the next second another car plows into the back of the taxi. The taxi driver gets out and engages in fisticuffs with the other guy, a chase ensues between the two, and we're both left sitting in the car going 'WTH'.

yeah, BTW, if you take a taxi, spring for the extra $$ to skip the trip.  The first time I got in a taxi I swear the cabbie must have gotten into 5 different accidents on the way to my destination.

Thanks for the recommendations guys. I'll check into everything mentioned. I still find it a bit odd that adults, and even men watch Degrassi.

I started watching Degrassi: TNG because I was a big fan of the original. I will say, if you are not at least somewhat open to a teen drama, it probably won't change your mind.  But it is much more compact and anti-MTV than anything you'll see on the CW. The thing I have always noticed is that they almost never use music in the background of any scene to pump up the emotion, and if they do, it's original, and not a "band of the week". If you do give it a chance, keep in mind that other than the pure nostalgic awesomeness of the first episode, the first season is pretty weak because the kids are so young, but it gets a lot better. I do classify it as a guilty pleasure no matter what.

With the US obsessed with reality tv and more scandalous shows, Canada seems to have become a source for a ton of teen shows that wind up on various cable channels. My wife is a bit of a sucker for those (Blake Holsey High, Life With Derek, Instant Star, Radio Free Roscoe, Naturally Sadie, etc.), although I wouldn't recommend any of them for you.

Sorry it got rough at the end of the night last night.  Not sure why it started dropping people, but that combined with that insane echo someone was transmitting made me run screaming from the 360.

Did everyone's 360 lock up at about 8:45 eastern?  I had to reboot and it looked like a bunch of people were at the dashboard, so I just shut down because I needed to eat something.

In the Social Club, how do you register so that it will get your stats from XBL? I used my gamertag but it doesn't seem to know to associate it with my XBL account.

Click "edit profile" on the top right and about halfway down you will see the link to link up your gamertag.

With the red dot on the M60, it's hard to put 2-3 rounds on the exact same small target at max range.  Your first round will probably hit since you have the red dot for aim, but then it drifts up.

With the grip on the RPD, the first 3 rounds pretty much hit within the same tiny target even at max range on the largest maps.  Since the RPD does 40 damage per round, even without a head shot it's a kill at max range with 3 out of your available 100 rounds in the mag.

Is that from the hip?

Oh BTW, even with GTA4 out I did manage to log on yesterday long enough to red dot my M60 and hit level 44.

If you haven't been to the Rock Star Social Club yet, here's a screenshot I just took of the police blotter to give you an idea of what's inside:



Does it track your individual stats or no?

It's a little unclear at the moment.  There is a thing called the "Liberty City Marathon" that tracks you towards a set of goals (400 miles walked/ran, 4000 miles driven, 120,000 bullets fired, etc.), but I have all 0%. Either it hasn't updated yet or I have done so little it hasn't registered as a full %.  They don't completely list all the stats you have access to in-game.

There is also a separate multi-player stat section, but it is "coming soon".  Other stuff includes an area that you are allowed to go in after you finish the story, and some special challenges, most notably people who get 100% completion during the first week of release.

edit: beaten, oh well.
