So in it BUUUUUURNS (probably not tonight, but any night moving forward!).
2  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/Ps3] Fuse from Insomniac Games on: June 15, 2013, 02:21:57 AM
I just finished Fuse last night. Spent the majority of the time playing with 3 people total, once with all 4 as humans and no AI. Took 6.5 hours on hard difficulty. I do not want to play Fuse again.

This was not a good game. Same 6 or so enemy types (with annoying cloaked soldiers that run up to you, grab you, and you can't get out of their grasp without the help of a teammate), only one-type of "mini" boss and a couple different real boss fights. Each solider gets their own unique gun, but there is a very small selection of other guns to use when you're out of Fuse ammo. The combo effect, when you all shoot the same enemy or use your Fuse effects, is kind of neat, but it's never explained.

The story was weird and laughable.

The game was soulless. There are moments that are amazing to witness. Moments when a bomb is planted to breach a wall and the Overstrike team are literally one yard away from an exploding wall. Moments that include weird animations. Just weird a game like this would come out.

My apologies to bump a month-old thread, but I wanted to get an idea from folks what the heck happened to Monaco.

This game wasn't on my radar AT ALL until about 2 weeks before it's initial release on XBLA. And all I heard was glowing praise for the game! I was all aboard the hype train, and convinced some buddies to get the game with me when it finally released.

We put in one night of MP and haven't really been compelled to play again, unfortunately.

Am I the only one to not really get it? Was there really a steep drop-off or am I just misinterpreting things?

** edited to add ** Not on the top 100 list for Steam today...

Interesting strategy. While I don't think it's a smart strategy, but at least it's a fresh concept. Should be interesting to see how this model competes with the Tekken F2P game that just released.

I will say that, as a KI fan who put quite a bit of time into the first game and sequel, I'm not as excited as I thought I would be. But hey, fun reveal!

Hey guys, what's going on in this thread?

Catherine...in a couple months, I think. I want to support Atlus, and the demo was kind of fun, but not really my type of game.

Ok, question.

There's another PSP game...I think it's portable ops.  From a story perspective, should one play it first? (I'm not going to, but just curious about story stuff).

I know KG is the resident MGS guy around these parts, but I agree. Also, save yourself some frustration (struggled with the controls the entire game) and go with cutscenes off YouTube. They are BEAUTIFUL; I think those that skipped PO are going to be impressed with the hand-drawn stuff that will be featured in Peacewalker.

Is anyone getting the spirit green PSP or camo PSP? I'm awfully tempted...

Oh wow, this brings back memories:

9.5 review at IGN, very great words about the game. However, it has end battle spoilers... so read if you want to be spoiled:

http://psp.ign.com/articles/109/1095291p1.html

Also - Peace Walker was called MGS5 during its development... then they decided to drop the 5. For all intensive purposes, it IS MGS5.

Intensive purposes?

From The Word Detective:

"For all intensive purposes" is a classic "eggcorn," a re-shaping of a word or phrase that, far from being a simple error, has flourished and persisted because it actually makes a certain amount of sense.

I respect the shit out of the last book, but it's going to make a bad movie. I can't see how the translation could end up becoming a good movie, just can't.

With that said, I'm still excited biggrin

Whoah, a "visual novel adventure?" That sounds crazy.

Grabbing Peace Walker and Joe Danger on Tuesday.

USA v England match will be huge. If there was a day for us to beat the brits, it would be this one.

20  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Less than one week til MGS5 and... on: June 03, 2010, 06:38:29 AM
This one will be special. Had to force myself through Portable Ops, to be completely honest. After some time with the demo, just the change of controls really made me more excited.

In terms of marketing exposure, yeah, that's tough. Are we going to see a Kevin Butler ad for it?

24  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Killzone 3 on: May 27, 2010, 11:36:29 PM
Also mentioned: the feedback about MP from the community was all taken into account. Considering the number one complaint we saw was lack of a party system, hopefully that (AND MATCHMAKING!) made it into Killzone 3.
25  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mod Nation Racers on: May 27, 2010, 07:52:38 PM

26  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Recommend some console exclusives on the 360? on: May 27, 2010, 07:12:58 AM
Halo 3 & ODST are no brainers.

After that, not sure. The things that come to mind are available on PC. I know you don't like jRPGs, but Lost Odyssey may be up your alley. It fulfills your #1 request: a great storyline.

Maybe Dead Rising?

I'll buy this one when it hits $20.  Too many other games right now to make time for this.  Plus, hopefully a patch will help the loading times because I couldn't stand them in the beta.  I do look forward to eventually creating some awesome tracks though!

I look forward to racing on them!

Got some more time in with this today and I'm digging it. I'm not at the difficulty spike in the single-player yet, although I may steer clear of that all-together because of the massive amount of things to do online. Whether it's the daily hot lap, rolling into a public online game of 12 players, or a quick match on some the highest-ranked maps, I enjoyed myself quite a bit tonight.

I have a feeling we're going to see pretty much EVERYTHING ripped off. Not that there's anything wrong with that (but I want JUST ONE awesome Rainbow Road).

ModNation Racers for PS3. Galaxy 2...at some point.

Very good to hear. Give us a party system and true MP matchmaking and I'll be a happy man.

Quite obviously, the b*tch deserved what she was getting.

Holy cow.

When you do something like that, do you put up a minimum bid, or just see what it goes up to?

Saw two sold before mine, one at $20 one at $40.

Put a minimum bid up there for $20 and a buy it now at $40 for those impatient types. Only took ten minutes.

I love preorder bonuses <3
