It is not gold. It might be in a few months.

While the rest of your statements are certainly debatable, this one isn't. "Gold" isn't a statement of quality in gaming, it just means that the retail build of the game has been sent off to mass production. In that respect, Elemental is most certainly gold.

For the record, we're not playing a beta version of the game right now either (for those who say we do). This is the retail version, although a buggy one. "Beta" is a specific stage in development and would never be used about a game that has gone retail.

Well, it looks real to me. You might want to log into your WoW account (if you have one from earlier, perhaps) to check that everything is as it should be. If you don't have a WoW account, I have no idea what that email was about.

Hmm, despite all my years of identifying spam, I can't see anything wrong with the last one you posted. Are you sure it's spam? Did you modify the links in the email before posting here?

How is it a spoiler? No different than any chapter. i supplied no specifics. Now you shut the fuck up and go play. Fixed it for you little fella.

EDIT: And Darth Vader is Luke's father. Old Yeller dies. Spock returns in pt 3.

"No different than any chapter"? Seriously? You're saying this with a straight face? Here's a little quiz for you:

Spoiler for Hiden:
"I just got out of prison". <- Is this information about gameplay or about the story? Come on, I know you can answer this correctly.

For the record, I can't "shut the fuck up and go play" since the game hasn't been released here yet. I'd like to read about the game though without you ruining parts of the experience for me.

I'm amazed they have not posted a mandatory update already.  I wish they would go ahead and give us the option to do "legit" full installs when they do.

How would you propose they do that? The reason we're forced to use the blu-rays is because they function as copy protection. Since the blu-ray is in your drive, nobody else can play your copy of the game, even if you've installed it on several PS3s. If you let people play without the disc in the drive, you could have circles of friends who all install the game from the same disc.

I had a very similar experience and have to say it's the least helpful tutorial I've ever seen.  I might have better luck just playing a new game and learning that way.

It was the same way with me until I watched the video tutorials. That helped a lot.
4849  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 has been hacked/jailbreaked on: August 25, 2010, 08:26:46 AM
If you're ever going to use PSN, you'd do well to stay away from this hack. Use of the debug mode (which this usb stick triggers) is supposedly just as easy for Sony to detect as any regular game. Bannings are to be expected.

also, the action feels off for some reason.

I mentioned that in my post. The combat system is still being developed. The guy holding the presentation also said this numerous times.

I also had a "major update" that I downloaded last night. Impulse shows my game version as v1.01.
   
Is that the release day patch, or is there supposed to be something else coming?

The Day 0 patch is coming later tonight.

Damn, and here I thought I was already playing with the enhancements from the patch notes.

Which spider are you talking about? There are two next to each other, and one of them looks completely impossible based on its stats (over 40 hit points, I think).

Do you play the exact same levels in co-op as in solo mode? I'm wondering if I should play the game on my own or save it until I have someone to play with?

I've got the same initial problems as Shkspr and no time to figure it out by trial and failure (for now). All my militia guys die in the battle against the spider, and two of my guys appear to be completely useless. I can't tell what they're for and if they even provide any kind of benefit.

Could some kind soul write a small walkthrough for the first mission to show how it's supposed to be done? I'm lost.

Quote from: Destructor on August 23, 2010, 01:42:52 PM

Bloody hell - this game is doomed already.

I wouldn't be so quick to judge it yet. The way I'm reading the details so far, this could well be a long-term project modeled after the success Wizards of the Coast has had with their D&D Insider subscriptions and the software that goes along with it. This means that new classes, races, feats, powers, game systems, and so on would get added regularly for those who maintain a subscription. The idea seems to be to appeal to a broader base than the regular hardcore gamer, presenting this as a way to play real D&D with friends using real, custom scenarios without having to spend hours at a time.

I may very well be wrong, but this is how I read it so far. It'll be interesting to see what they're actually planning.
4861  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New Neverwinter Nights? on: August 23, 2010, 11:44:44 AM
Well, this is certainly intriguing. Not at all what I (or anyone else, it seems) expected. I'm glad to see that there will be a quest editor of some kind, though it's unclear how detailed it will be. If it only allows us to make MMORPG-like quests, it won't be much fun. If it gives us the power to make things at the level of the original NWN, it will be much more interesting.

They're doing themselves a huge disservice by only including 5 classes though. That's just not enough by far.
4862  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings on: August 23, 2010, 06:19:55 AM
GameTrailers posted a series of gameplay videos yesterday from the GC 10 presentation. I'm posting the links here for your perusal. There's a lot of juicy info here, though the game is still a little rough around the edges. Facial animation is sorely lacking (the characters look like their faces have been carved from rock) and melee combat is... weird. They're still working on all these things though, so I'm confident it will look better in the finished product.

Anyway, here are the links, in chronological order:

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4 (Nudity, NSFW)
Part 5
Part 6

Quote from: EddieA on August 20, 2010, 02:37:13 AM

From the Gamespot preview -
Quote
There is a point when you look at Lord of the Rings: War in the North and inevitably think to yourself, "Well, then. I don't think I've played a Lord of the Rings game quite like this before." Perhaps that moments arrives when you see your first feral goblin decapitation. Or, maybe it's when a mountain troll saunters along, picks up your elf friend, and quite literally rips her in half. Regardless of when it happens, the point remains: War in the North is certainly treading new (if slightly bloodied) ground with this beloved license.

It's no coincidence, either. Developer Snowblind studios has made violence one of their main areas of focus for War in the North.

Ugh.  This is what I was afraid of when they said the game would be "mature".  Psychotic violence and gore are exactly what the LOTR franchise doesn't need.

Is that what bothers you most about this game? I'd say spell-wielding mages is exactly what the LOTR franchise doesn't have and didn't need. At least blood and gore exists in the setting even if it hasn't really been shown much in earlier games/movies/books.
4864  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 has been hacked/jailbreaked on: August 20, 2010, 06:52:51 AM
Sony is indeed "cruising". The PS3 has become profitable and is getting more interesting exclusive titles than then 360.

I hope the console hasn't been hacked, just like the last time someone made this claim and backed it up with video (it was a hoax). Nobody who's worth caring about will benefit from the PS3 becoming open to piracy.

Don't believe everything you read. The pictures/videos that have been distributed show this "hack" being done on a debug system. In case you don't know, a debug system can already do the things this USB dongle supposedly does.

So then why would it appear on a bunch of news sites like it did? You'd think that somebody would've checked up on it and gone "Hey, this isn't right" and posted it as such.

Crazy if it's true though. Silly if it isn't.

Websites reported on it, and the better ones updated their reports when they studied it in more detail. Joystiq was one of the sites that updated their article to reflect the news about the debug unit.

Perhaps you have to manually assign it a drive letter? Hit the Windows key and type "create and format" and you'll see the "create and format hard disk partitions" application. If the drive is indeed present, you can manage it from here.

It rained, hard, for the entire four days we were there (in Sept, I believe it was).

Were you expecting snow? Even here in Norway, we usually don't get snow until late November or December. In recent years global warming seems to have moved winter back even more, so we're now lucky to have snow by Christmas. (not counting the areas way north in the country, where they have snow nearly all year round)

In defence of the northern European winters: Unlike America, our countries don't stop because of snow, so there's no need to be afraid that the winter would ruin anything for you. If anything, snow can make things look better.

Unlike just about every where in N.A., you have real public transit and really no need to drive. That makes snow a heckuva lot easier to take. Besides, snow isn't really a big problem for you, because you're all huddled closer together and your collective body heat makes it melt.  Tongue

Haha, have you seen the size of Norway on a map recently? Cross-reference that with the amount of people living here. Tongue

Quote from: Turtle on August 16, 2010, 07:38:51 AM

Wow, that's actually a pretty good scene. It had one of the few things that Luke's character really needed through all the movies, self motivation and a showing of Luke's growing competency.

I assume that the scene would have been shown at the beginning of the movie. If so, it's pretty much completely unnecessary and would actually reduce the impact of other early scenes. That he built a new lightsaber is pretty much a given. He lost his old one in Empire Strikes Back, so when he shows up with a new one in Return of the Jedi, we can draw our own conclusions.

Luke's competency is shown clearly when he's first introduced in the movie. He masterfully and confidently gets himself into Jabba's palace, granting himself an audience with the creature. Showing him before this scene would make it less interesting, partly because his identity isn't clearly shown initially.

Question:-if all 6 films got released(one at a time)in 3D at the cinema,would you go and see them?

Dunno. Movies don't really look good in 3D unless they were filmed specifically for it.

Hayden Christensen in the end of ROTJ never really bothered me, btw. I felt that it tied the two trilogies nicely together, and the justification is good enough (Anakin "died" when Darth Vader took over, and thus the Force remembers his looks at the moment of that particular death).

of course you could always rent it and play it, which gives you enjoyment of the game while not giving Ubi a cent of your money.  I like that idea.

Might as well pirate it at that point (which I won't, for the record). Not that renting games is something I could do around here. I suspect that's a much more common concept in America than in Norway.
