A bit of information about the differences between the PS3 and 360 versions:

Red Dead Redemption sub-HD on PS3.
360 version looks slightly better, according to ars technica.

Doesn't seem to be anything major, but since I have both a PS3 and a 360, I think I'll go for the 360 version at this point.

There's a funny Max Payne reference near the very end of the game. They make fun of one of the silliest things in Max Payne 1. I won't spoil it for you. smile

I've been completely hooked on this game again for the past week. Got my captain up to level 63 and made him Supreme Master Metalsmith (holy hell what a grind that was, particularly since I did the majority of it before it was patched to become easier and cheaper) who is kindred with the Metalsmith Guild. I'm going to make myself a full suit of teal crafted armor now to celebrate, but it will take a few weeks considering the cooldown on the ingredients. Yes, I know better armor is available in instances and raids. No, I'm not particularly motivated to start grinding equipment in that way. Perhaps when I'm level 65.

I also returned to my level 11 warden and boosted him up to 19. He's very fun to play and can kill things incredibly fast. I regularly see him two-shot enemies, something my captain can't even dream of doing. I'm sure this will become impossible at higher levels, but it sure is refreshing to plow through hordes of enemies like this without taking a break. smile

Adventuring in Bree-lands is now completely different from what I remember. Back in the old days we'd start questing in the Bree-lands between levels 13 and 15 and be ready to move to the Lone-lands by level 17. Now it looks like you're supposed to go to Bree-lands around level 15 and stay there until at least level 20, and then head to North Downs. The few Lone-lands quests I have so far are level 22 or higher. I haven't even been to the Barrow-downs yet, and don't know if I'm going to get quests to lead me there or if I'm supposed to go there on my own. I'm betting the former, but we'll see. The Old Forest has changed a LOT since the early days of the game. Back in the beta the forest would change constantly. The path you took when heading into the forest might not be there when you were heading back, and you had no map to help you out. Elite Huorns would attack you whenever you got too close, and even attempting to flee was dangerous as roots would come out of the ground to attack you. In short, the forest was dark, dangerous and hard to navigate. Some people loved it, some hated it. By the game's release they made the forest static but still kept it unmapped. Due to the design it was still incredibly easy to become lost in there. In a later patch they tuned down the Huorns to make them signature instead of elite, and they stopped aggroing on sight. Now there's even a detailed map of the forest that pops up once you enter. Getting lost in there is pretty much impossible at this point.

I'm curious how big the changes to the Lone-lands are now. I always hated questing there (it consisted of almost nothing but "kill x boars" quests in a dull landscape), but with the redesign it's supposed to be much better.

I'm confused on the theory that the smoke monster was in the cabin as jack's father and that is who Locke saw.  From what I remember the smoke monster cannot pass over that grey ash?  It was surrounding the cabin so how did the smoke monster get into the cabin?  This is the same grey ash that those people used to try and protect themselves from smokey in the big foot.

At the end of season 5 it was revealed that there was a gap in the ash. The original purpose of the cabin is unclear however. Jacob might have imprisoned the smoke monster there for a time, or tried to keep it out. I really don't think it's important at this point, but it's certainly interesting.

I don't see it. What loophole are you referring to?

I believe Ben's role as a major character in Lost ended in season 5, btw. I would be very surprised if he turns out to be vital to whatever is going to happen in the end. His role in the series was to kill Jacob. He has been used, broken, and given redemption. His story is complete.

was that wine...my everlasting blood type thing?,so now Jacob can't 'die'...why was he a ghost/invisible in the hut in season 2(or 3)

Ben lied to Locke that he could see Jacob the first time they went to the cabin. It was the man in black that did the "help me" thing (or whatever it was) that Locke heard and appeared as a shadowy/ghost thing. One of his many little manipulations of John Locke. Later, when Locke went into the cabin again, the man in black appeared to Locke as Christian and told him to move the island. So, Jacob has never appeared as a ghost or whatever (aside from him visiting Hurley since he's been dead). That was always the man in black.

Early on, Smokey was using Ben  - particularly in getting him to kill Locke.  I suspect Smokey appeared to Ben several times in his Christian Shepherd suit - but claimed to be Jacob.

The smoke monster has never seemed to use Ben directly, except at the very end when he manipulated him into killing Jacob. He definitely never appeared before him pretending to be Jacob. Ben admitted during a moment of personal crisis that he had never met Jacob, and this was before he met the real one. All orders came through Richard, with no exceptions. This is why he was so upset when Locke claimed to have heard from Jacob (which actually was the smoke monster) in the cabin, while he himself didn't.

Yes, the smoke monster was using Ben, but it took only the lightest of prods to do so. I can see no evidence that it made him kill Locke. In fact, I believe the smoke monster expected Locke to kill himself.
4971  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Official Review] Alan Wake on: May 16, 2010, 08:19:48 PM
Just finished the game. 6 episodes, the four last ones feeling quite a bit longer than the first two. Most of the game is spent walking through the woods trying to get to a destination. It gets a little bit much when some chapters are nothing but this. 2-3 hours of walking towards the same objective without much story development in-between grates.

Still, the gameplay mechanics are absolutely solid and the story is interesting and will keep you guessing. The voice acting is poor. The music is great. The lighting effects are fantastic and really end up defining the whole experience. The graphics reminded me a lot of Resident Evil 4 in their realistic and gritty style. The game itself felt like what the last Alone in the Dark should have been but never even came close to becoming.

I was swimming in ammo and equipment at many points through the game on Normal difficulty, but you'll lose all your equipment regularly, sometimes more than once per chapter. Combat was still challenging at some points though, particularly when you get surrounded. You need to be on your toes and ready to adapt your combat tactics on the fly. These are the mechanics that work so well. Do you think you can take out this group of enemies using just your flashlight and revolver? Should you toss a flare to give you some breathing room, or do you simply try to dodge? Perhaps a flashbang is a better idea, but it takes longer... do you have enough time?

Definitely worth the time and money. smile

Edit: Oh, and I never noticed any screen tearing. Perhaps I just filter it out mentally?

4975  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Official Review] Alan Wake on: May 14, 2010, 09:23:55 PM
Haven't noticed any screen tearing, but keep in mind that this is on a European TV, so there might be differences due to that.

I've played through the first two episodes now. Took surprisingly long. The game is sort of repetitive, but it's still very good, and the atmosphere is excellent. The voice actors aren't all that good, and it's particularly disappointing that Alan Wake himself sounds so flat. It feels like I'm playing a mix between Resident Evil and Alone in the Dark, without the crappy parts of the latter (which were most of the game, admittedly). Word of advice: The game has been pretty easy on Normal so far. If you truly want to be scared, I suggest upping the difficulty a notch.

The influences are very obvious so far. Mild spoilers below. You may want to skip reading the Stephen King one if you haven't read The Dark Tower and the others if you haven't seen the respective TV-series, though it's nothing extremely spoilerific:

Stephen King:
Spoiler for Hiden:
The whole story reeks of The Dark Tower. It's so close in many ways that it nearly feels like a ripoff. They're probably going to twist it around a bit later, so I'm not casting any judgment here yet. You pretty much play Stephen King's role in the Dark Tower, if his active participation was bigger.

Twin Peaks:
Spoiler for Hiden:
The characters are obviously very inspired by Twin Peaks. The opening to episode 2 is particularly close, copying certain locations and the mannerisms of the receptionist at the police station. It looks like the story is bringing in a kind of anti-Cooper too. The whole evil forest theme is also extremely prevalent.

Lost:
Spoiler for Hiden:
There's a disappearing island and intelligent dark smoke that follows you around and rips down trees. Nuff said. slywink

I even nearly won a team battle where I was all alone on my team against a team of two people two ranks above me. Two additional hits and I would have beaten them. Felt really good despite losing. smile

Don't rush. Your quests will tell you when it's time to go to Bree. It will probably happen somewhere between level 13 and 15. There's not really much reason to go there earlier, and the tokens will still be accepted for a while, I think.

His name is going to figure into the Big Reveal. I'm not very confident that it's going to be Esau, though. This episode didn't fit that theory.

Lucifer, the Light Bringer?

I thought I saw somewhere that Esau was his name. I could be wrong.

That's just a name used by those who think of the two brothers in biblical terms. It does not come from the show's creators.

I think it was the smoke monster that pretended to be mib's mother and lead him down that path.

Unlikely. The show has already established that dead characters on the Island can interact with living ones without the smoke monster getting involved, and in this case it hadn't even been activated yet. More likely his mother acted on what she thought was right, misguided as it turned out to be.

Typical Lost,  instead of actually giving us any answers of substance they just give us more questions.  I did not care for this episode and felt that it was a waste of an hour this close to the series finale.  Sure we now know the origions of Jacob and the man with no name  (apologies to Clint ) but thats all we know.  Nothing else was really explained.  Oh it did make Jacob look like a douche and confused us even more about his brother.
 I guess all we can hope for is that this episode provides some background to help fill out the great reveal.......  naw,  theyll probably end the series leaving us more confused than we are now.

I'm pretty much in agreement on this episode, definitely a letdown in terms of what could have been revealed.  The only tangible thing they gave us was that Smokey *really* wants to leave the island (and has always wanted to).  Which we pretty much already knew. Oh yeah, and the reveal of who "Adam and Eve" were, I guess that was new info.  Now I do wonder if the magic light spot where Smokey originated is also the critical EM spot that Widmore and Tina Fey are searching for, perhaps it will tie in to his plan for Desmond.  If they can link that all up, I'll give them a higher mark for this episode.

That is very likely. The heart of the Island is a strong electromagnetic field from everything we've seen so far. Since Widmore tested Desmond specifically for resistance to such fields, it's only natural to assume that he'll want him to enter that cave (or whatever it is now) to do something there. Continuing this line of thought, it's quite likely the finale will give us a good view of what's in there that is worth manipulating.
4987  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Lost: The Final Season (spoilers not tagged) on: May 12, 2010, 09:11:40 PM
I agree about Jacob's attitude to the Smoke Monster (I was about to type that in my post, but forgot in the heat of the moment), but I do think that it truly took over all his thoughts to the point where it can even believe it's actually the brother.

Though now that I think about it the various people the monster has "consumed" are to certain degrees apparent in its personality. It seems to be very protective of Claire (which would be Christian's personality), has elements of Locke ("Don't tell me what I can't do!") and of course a large amount of Jacob's brother's personality. Yet its greatest motivation appears to be to leave the Island, and this is exactly the same thing the brother wanted.
4988  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Lost: The Final Season (spoilers not tagged) on: May 12, 2010, 08:27:20 PM
My impression of the events at the end of the episode was that Jacob's brother actually died completely and never came back. But Jacob fucked up in the grief over his mother's death and did something stupid: He threw his wounded brother into the heart of the Island, polluting and darkening it and giving the darkness within it a mind to make it sentient. The Smoke Monster is now merely a copy of Jacob's brother, possessing the same memories, thoughts and instincts.

More about those spoilers:
Spoiler for Hiden:
If you recruit Legion, as opposed to leaving him inactive, it gives you 1 more mission before it start killing your crew. Otherwise, you'll have only 1 mission before it does.

As for whoever goes through the pipes surviving, just make sure they're loyal and that they're a tech expert, and that whoever you have commanding the other fireteam is also loyal, and is a good leader.  Choosing a loyal tech expert is easy enough, but sometimes people confused about actual leadership ability for the second fireteam. Don't choose who you think can just get a lot of kills, choose someone you know who can lead soldiers.

What likely happening is that you're choosing the wrong fireteam leader, meaning they don't give proper suppressing fire and get your tech expert killed.

Well

Spoiler for Hiden:
I chose legion the first time. He's loyal and a tech expert.  I chose Zaeed as my fire team lead.  Fire team came through fine.  Legion hacked the door and it got stuck as it was closing and he got shot in the head.

The second time, I chose Tali and Miranda as the fireteam.  Same exact scenario occurred, with Tali getting shot in the head while the door hung up.  Problem is, Tali is not loyal because I sided with Legion during their faceoff.

I think I might be stuck.


Spoiler for Hiden:
You made two different mistakes here, which ended up leading to the same results.

Your first time you chose a poor leader to lead the second squad. This led to Legion getting killed.

The second time you chose someone who wasn't loyal (Tali) to do the specialist mission.

Try using Legion and Miranda. That will work as long as both are loyal.

This game's ranking system hates me. Just when I was starting to get the hang of things and got my win rate above 40% in ranked matches, I'm suddenly being tossed up against opponents with WAY more battle points than me, and they crush me easily.

Vega obviously got a boost since the last edition btw (I think he was considered the weakest character in SF4). I've fought him once now (during my victory streak) and I was barely even able to control my character. Vega just kept hitting me from all kinds of unexpected angles and at such speed that I was completely unable to react. He had more than 90% health left in both rounds of the match. It was... humbling.
