You mean the new Need For Speed Hot Pursuit?  

Yea, that one.  Play the shit out of them and let me know.  I liked the racing parts of Grand theft auto, and thought I would give one a try.  But I cannot decide which to get.

I might like to race online too, if its like a "black ops" racing game heh..

But yea, I want to get one to play around on and see if I can get into it, so would like a reccomendation.

I haven't played either but am quite familiar with both nevertheless. They're completely different types of racing games. GT5 is hyper-realistic and the ideal choice if you're looking for the ultimate simulation. NFS:HP is the best choice if you want a focus on action and high-speed chases with only the occasional nod towards realism. NFS:Shift is a better comparison to GT5.

I won't touch the alchemist side of things unless it becomes apparent that it is something that is required.

It's not required, but a little effort put into understanding the options available to you will make the game considerably easier for you. Some battles would get very difficult if you don't use potions. There's a reason why even the intro shows an extended sequence of Geralt consuming a potion in preparation for battle.

I honestly didn't think Fallout 3 was much better than Oblivion when it came to voiceovers.

really? Oblivion apart from the famous people,they used what seemed like a total of 5 other voices for all the NPCs,the Fallout 3 voices no one seemed to share the same voice

Oh come on, it was the same few people all the time. For example, IIRC they only used one voice actor for all the old men in the game.

A different example: In Fallout New Vegas, try visiting the army base in the southwest. Every male character there is the same voice actor.

Sounds fine to me. I barely used stimpaks in my hardcore playthrough. While I rarely had more than about two dozen stimpaks at once in Fallout 3, I routinely had around a hundred of them in New Vegas. I felt like I was swimming in them even by the time I left the first town.

I honestly didn't think Fallout 3 was much better than Oblivion when it came to voiceovers. Fallout New Vegas was somewhat better, but far from good enough. I consider voiceovers to be Bethesda's major weakness, partly because there's too few voice actors being used for too many people (it doesn't help much in a game like this if you have a ton of voice actors but only use most of them for one unique character each, when the majority of the game is spent talking to more generic NPCs) and because they somehow seem to drain the "energy" from their performances. I don't know what it is that does it, but even the best actors who've been in Bethesda games have sounded nearly asleep (again, New Vegas was better, but far from at the level I'd expect from the actors involved). Maybe it's related to the general lack of emotion the NPCs are able to display during conversation with the current engine, which limits the acting range that can be used.

It's Evendim, sir, not Everdim. You make it sound so bleak. slywink

North Downs was always one of my favorite zones. It's huge and varied, with lots to do and plenty of freedom to go wherever you like without being funneled through barely masqueraded tunnels. It also features many of the important elements of LOTR: Elves, dwarves, men and rangers all have their own separate camps there. Orcs are present in large numbers. You've got grasslands, hills, mountains, valleys, a huge lake, and even the necropolis of Fornost, the seat of the king in the old days. The epic quest in the region has you trying to convince the various races to prepare for war against the orcs swarming out of Angmar, and you can do this in any order you like.

I just wondering what approach Bethesda will take to geography this time; will it be a much smaller area like Oblivion's or a full continent like Morrowind. Transporting to different locations on the continent in Morrowind captured my imagination much more than the series of towns and mountains surrounding a small lake featured in Oblivion. That said, I can't say I care for the World Map approach Bioware took with Ferelden in DA.

Technically, Oblivion covered a larger land mass than Morrowind. Take a look at the map above. Morrowind didn't cover even half of the Morrowind province, but was set only on the island. Oblivion on the other hand covered pretty much the entiretiy of Cyrodiil, the largest province in the Elder Scrolls world.

As an aside, Daggerfall covered only a minor part of the Hammerfell province, while Arena covered the entire world.

now there was a lot of snow to the North of Cyrodiil(Oblivion) i wonder as Skyrim is north of that,i wonder if it will just be a winter wonderland

Skyrim is where the emperor originally came from, and is where the Nords are from originally as well.

Basically, its Denmark ;-)

Yes, they do.  icon_razz

I think teaser looks great!! But I can't identify the robot in it. That's definetely not Shockwave (Shockwave only has one eye).. It sorta looks like Rodimus Prime, and that's a good chance it is 'cause Optimus Prime could die for good in this third movie. It ain't Galvatron either. And that's definetely not Unicron.

I'd guess it's a new robot invented for the movies, just like the big bad in Transformers 2.

The irony is, of course, that games such as Call of Duty and their popular multiplayer components are becoming a problem for publishers. The analyst Michael Pachter has commented on this a number of times, pointing out that when people can get hundreds of hours out of the multiplayer in a game like CoD, they'll be less inclined to purchase more games. A good multiplayer game might earn them more sales of that particular game, but it could also keep that same player from buying their next several releases simply because he's satisfied with the first one.

Have you tried calculating the price adjusted for inflation? Just because games cost $60 then and still cost $60 now, that doesn't mean they're anywhere near the same price range for the time they were released. According to an inflation calculator I just googled up, that $60 price tag in 1990 equals about $100 today. $60 in 1985 is nearly $120. Imagine those prices today!

There are several awesome sniper weapons. The latter parts of the game were almost too easy with my sniper character. I could one-shot pretty much anything, including deathclaws.

From the casting news that have emerged so far, I'm not impressed at all. While I do enjoy Mark Wahlberg's work (except Max Payne, a role he butchered), he doesn't fit Nathan Drake at all. Wahlberg is just too... soft, I guess. I just can't see him shouting out funny lines like Drake does all the time.

And what's that stuff about Drake's father and uncle? Is that really necessary? Nothing in the game canon has even hinted that these people are alive and well, or even that they're involved in the same kind of stuff as Nathan. Robert De Niro might be able to fit right into the Uncharted setting without too much effort, but Joe Pesci? Seriously? They're just going to play him as pure comic relief (scary Goodfellas performance notwithstanding), and it's not going to work.
4712  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (11/29) on: November 29, 2010, 07:18:20 AM
Nothing. I'm quite pleased that releases have slowed down. I even started up King's Bounty again (after a long break in the middle of the campaign) this weekend and promptly lost 10 hours to it. We're spoiled with frequent game releases.  icon_cool

When the leaked documents reveal war crimes, I'm all for it. Nobody should get away with that kind of stuff. When they reveal internal diplomatic notes, they're rather pointless and end up helping nobody. In fact, they put innocent (and not so innocent) people's lives in severe danger.

I get the impression that the guy behind Wikileaks is simply desperate for attention and doesn't care if he causes anarchy with his methods.

I'm going to be very surprised if this sells well.  Racing games are down in general and it's been a long time since Gran Turismo 4.  If there is buzz for this, I haven't seen it.

The thing with Gran Turismo is that it seems to attract a lot of people that don't ordinarily play games. For example, my boss at work isn't a gamer but will buy a PS3 when GT5 comes out.
