Yeah they mention an inquistor in the demo and I'm like 'he sounds important'.   icon_cool

Inquisitors are among the most important people in the Imperium. When they speak, they speak with the voice of the God-Emperor himself. They've got vast financial and military resources at their disposal, and they can accuse and execute anyone except the God-Emperor, even up to and including the leader of the Inquisition itself. They've also got the authority to order Exterminatus, the complete and utter destruction of life on a planet, which I'm sure is going to be a topic of this game.


They can go bad an turn to Chaos though!  Be careful who you trust!!

Yeah, which is why I mentioned that even the leader of the Inquisition can be (and has been in the past) accused of heresy and executed.

On the other hand, it is by retaining control over the LIVE experience that Microsoft continues to bring a superior online experience..

I think you're confusing concepts. Microsoft takes payment to bring a "superior online experience". Sony offers theirs for free. This has nothing to do with the degree of control they exert over the service. A paid service is nearly always going to have advantages over a free one, except in one area: The free one is cheaper.

By the way, Microsoft bent over and took it up the ass from EA a long time ago, relenting their "control" over Xbox Live because EA was about to take their ball and go home. The result is that EA is able to use its own servers for multiplayer content instead of having to rely on Xbox Live, and this is why older EA titles are impossible to play online these days.

What books should I read...sounds like a neat story.

DETAILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLS!?

Space Marines are like the popcorn of the Warhammer 40k universe. They are easy to enjoy and don't require much in the way of knowledge.

However, if you truly wish to learn more about the Warhammer 40k universe (and I recommend it! I recently started running a WH40k RPG-campaign, and it's very satisfying), make sure you begin with the Eisenhorn trilogy, usually available as an omnibus. Most people consider it the best books about this setting. It's not about Space Marines, but about an Imperial Inqiuisitor who's job it is to track down heretics, chaos and xenos (aliens). It's much more down to earth than most WH40k-fiction, yet still very epic.

The Phantom Menace is the only movie out of the six that I'd be very happy if was remade or at least modified heavily. As it is, it has way too many problems to be enjoyable. It says a lot that when I last saw the movie, I hit scene skip every time Jar-Jar appeared on the screen, and the movie was actually better and no less coherent for it. I'm tempted to do the same thing with Anakin.

I still remember the casting director for TPM proudly proclaiming in an interview that "when she saw Jake Lloyd, she just knew he was their Anakin". Yeah, nice going there. I'm sure that interview is the highlight of her career.

They've got to be making this on a budget, because the cast isn't exactly leading names, even for the B circuit. Other than Mary Winstead and Ulrich Thomsen, hardly any of them have appeared in films of note. Maybe the producer is expecting them to take that next step, but I'm thinking this is going to be more action-heavy and lighter on story/dialog than the 1st. The Dutch director also hasn't directed anything since 2004. That trailer did look very promising though.

The reason you're not recognizing the actors is because a lot of them are Norwegian. This was done to give the movie a more authentic feel, considering it takes place in a Norwegian camp, after all. You really should consider it a positive thing.

Um no, not really. I watch a lot of Scandinavian cinema -Norwegian films included- and I hardly recognize any of them. There's lots of outstanding actors in the Scandinavian film scene that they could have cast, but didn't. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying just any Swedish or Danish actor can play a Norwegian perfectly, but for a film targeted at an English speaking audience, almost all would no doubt pull it off.

No, they wouldn't. It would have ended up even worse than in the original movie, where what I assume is an American tries to speak Norwegian. Norwegian, Swedish and Danish may look similar, but they don't sound alike at all.

As for Norwegian, well-known actors... There aren't really any. Norway is crap when it comes to cinema.

you know,i really want to try the game again now icon_confused
The PC version of The Thing was a pretty terrific (imho; Metacritic numbers probably say otherwise), underappreciated little sci-fi horror survival shooter. A simple modification let you have at least one manual quicksave slot, I believe; the abscence of that and jumpy targeting pretty much killed the console versions. I still have my CD of the PC game and played it a bit a couple years back after we had talked about it here.
 

The biggest problem with that game is how it teaches you some really awesome game mechanics, then it turns out that those mechanics aren't really used. Everything, from panicking NPCs to which one of your companions is a Thing is all scripted, and in a really bad way. You can test an NPC and see that he's clean, and when you go through the next door he's suddenly turning into a monster. It kind of ruined the game for me. I can only recall one instance in the game where you can actually figure out that a guy's infected before he turns, but he's also the least important and talkative NPC I ever met. Combined with the circumstances in which you find him, it was a no-brainer. It also hurts the whole atmosphere when you realize that every single NPC that joins you will eventually turn at a predetermined moment (if he doesn't die first, which rarely if ever happens).

So, like some of the other folks here I was thinking of finally having a go at this - and then the 2.0 release was announced. Fine, I'll wait some more, I can always play Deus Ex come Tuesday. However, I wonder... if the biggest things coming are the Dark Mode and an Arena Mode, both of which I'd probably never use, and a spanky new tutorial section which I'd like to think I really don't need, what exactly would I be waiting for? Are there any tweaks of interest other than those three new features?  icon_neutral

I'd recommend holding back a little bit. It's a great, great game already, so it's not as if you'd suffer if you went ahead right away, but there seems to be more to the patch than just Dark Mode and Arena matches. According to Eurogamer's article about the patch:

Quote
update 2.0 adds "20 technical enhancements", various gameplay tweaks and a number of major new features.

I have no idea what those technical enhancements and gameplay tweaks are supposed to be, and it might just be nothing, but I'd still wait for a little more info.

It reminds me a bit of Trine in terms of the gameplay, albeit there aren't multiple classes.

It's much more similar to Another World, which has been remastered and re-released at the link I just posted, btw. The first half of Limbo is much better than the second half sadly, but the first half is very good.

Television shows, and television in general is being geared towards the generation that watches tv with only half of their attention, since they are doing other stuff at the same time.

Nonsense! TV series have never been as sophisticated and deep as they are these days, sitcoms and similar shows excluded. If you claim otherwise you're just applying selective memory.

Not at all - Quite a lot of shows are based around the idea, that you don't have to watch it all to understand it. Of course, there are exceptions (HBO in general makes these), but take a look at what is shown at primetime every day on the major channels. Its things like "Friends", "Simpsons", reality shows, and other light entertainment shows that offers instant gratification instead of making the viewer pay full attention.

I have a friend who works at TV2 here in Denmark, who says that its something they think about all the time, when planning what shows to show and when to do it.

Of course they do! It's an important part of their job.

Let's put it like this: Most TV series today are made so that you can jump into them at any point and understand what's going on. 15 years ago, ALL series were made that way. Stop wearing those blinds, man!


So, you don't believe that the fact people are online today every second of their lives, through computers or phones, has anything to do with lower attention spans when it comes to for instance entertainment? Or studies?

I never said that. Don't change the subject just because you lost this one. slywink

I remember back when Max Payne was released, one of the shortest games ever (of high quality at least) at the time at its 10 hours. There was a lot of criticism over how short the game was, with many people refusing to buy it because they didn't feel that the short play time was worth their money.

Nowadays Max Payne feels rather lengthy.

The thing about the ultra claw is
Spoiler for Hiden:
he decides he needs to make it to break down a wall that he can't reach with the foam, but he has already encountered a bunch of said walls even before he picks up the claw on the first go around. plus when he puts it together the pieces are laying right on top of the chest that I'm pretty sure he got the first claw out of. Maybe they just skipped a bit in the cutscene, or maybe he wasn't paying attention  icon_lol

Spoiler for Hiden:
I see you're point, and that first wall is even in his own "base". I think the parts he grabs are like extra cartridges for the single batclaw, like ammo for lack of a batter analogy.

What I will concede is that, he better not have forgotten it this time around, or that's just stupid. I could see them doing something like: Game opening, minor baddies as a sort of tutorial leading to big boss fight that's mostly scripted so that somehow Batty loses/breaks some toys and has to acquire replacements through the rest of the game. Lame but....

I want the game to have this collection element. The first game was firmly placed in the Metroidvania genre because of it, which I approved of. If the sequel doesn't have this element, I'll be disappointed.

Confirmed via Xbox 360 World magazine cover, ME3 has multiplayer.

It's only a separate co-op campaign though.

Que the obligatory people whining over positive new features that add more gameplay and doesn't affect the single player in any way.

I don't think you quite understand how this works. Allow me to explain it to you as someone who has actually worked on a game with both single- and multiplayer features:

Multiplayer almost always reduces the quality of the singleplayer in games. There are two main reasons for this: 1) MP is a hell of a lot more difficult to code than SP, (I can't emphasize this point enough. MP introduces an absolutely incredible amount of headaches and problems) and requires a considerable amount of staff to work on it. This usually means less staff for the SP part. 2) SP and MP usually shares the same code base. MP requires a different approach to balance and game features than what works best for SP. The end result is usually that MP features end up influencing SP features in a negative way for the latter, since MP is seen as "more important".

This kind of thing is practically never just adding a new layer on top of the existing ones. MP weaves itself into every part of the game and the development process, and will leave its shadow hanging over everything else.

As far as requiring an internet connection goes, good for them. The benefit of a more secure game for 99% of its players outweighs...

While I don't have a huge personal problem with the always-on thing (and come on, most people played Diablo 2 on Battle.net anyway, which was the exact same thing in that your characters wouldn't be available offline), I do take issue with the statement quoted above. Always-on doesn't mean a more secure game for the players. It means a more secure game for the publisher. Yes, they want us to believe that it's all for our benefit, but they know just as well as us that it's just marketing speech.
