That's interesting, because I seem to remember that Flashback got a lot of flak back when it was released for several reasons. One was that it had absolutely nothing to do with Another World's story, and the other was that its gameplay was totally different as well. Most people at the time seemed to prefer Another World's gameplay.

Edit: I just remembered: Flashback wasn't even the real sequel to Another World. A game called Heart of the Alien was. It's a parallel story to the original, letting you control the alien that helped you out throughout the game.

Is it me, or is there a LOT more TV/movie crossover for actors than when I was a kid?  It seemed you were either on the big screen or the little screen (usually after your time on the big screen) and that was it.

Yes, there is. TV series (and games) weren't respect before, but with shows like 24 and Lost they've gained a lot of traction in Hollywood.

The few leaderboards I've seen seem to allow you to toggle friends-only mode, and it works reasonably well. I can't see how it would affect sales in any way however, so I'm not sure what you mean with "have a positive impact on the game".

5647  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: GOG enters Another World on: March 19, 2010, 12:55:29 PM
I did play it again a few years back. It's not a frustrating game, but it is challenging and you'll die a lot. The idea is to figure out the trick to each scene. For example, an early scene has you fleeing a bunch of guards when you reach a locked door. Your companion starts hacking through the lock while you have to defend him. This is a scene that teaches you how to properly set up and maintain shields with your gun, and if you don't do it right, you (or your companion) will die. The skills that scene teach you are vital to later parts of the game. It's never unfair though. If you die it's because of something you did wrong, and you always feel like you should be able to do better.

The game uses a new technology where the performances of live actors are captured and directly turned into 3D models.  The articles says that the character and facial animations are far beyond even the most realistic of today's games.  This new system is also important to the gameplay, as you must read people's faces and body language in order to decide how best to question them.

That just sounds like a lot of marketing buzz to me. Motion capture is an ancient technology in computer games, and motion captured facial animations are nothing new either. Hell, the developers of Heavy Rain even developed a system for capturing eye movement! I also doubt their facial animations are better than what Resident Evil 5 managed, a game that skipped the entire uncanny valley syndrome.

As for the second buzzpoint quoted above, even Fallout made you read people's faces and body language to decide how to best question them.
5649  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: GOG enters Another World on: March 19, 2010, 07:57:57 AM
This is an amazing, cinematic game that everyone should try at least once, all the way to the end. It's not a long game but is filled with exciting set piece after set piece. Unlike most games of that era you spend more time fleeing from overwhelming odds than you do killing enemies.

This will be very nice for Xbox Live Indie Games developers who would usually have to purchase a memory unit for testing. With this change we can test using just a regular thumbdrive or something similar, and most of us should have something like that.
5651  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Convince me that I need a 360 (Update: Convinced) on: March 18, 2010, 07:35:05 PM
So I ended up geeking out completely and bought myself a 12-month subscription to XNA Creators Club Online which allows me to publish indie games on the console. Hopefully you'll see one or more games from me there in the future. I've got a very clear idea of what my first project will be (down to the contents of the menu screens) and I've got the game coding experience to pull it off. This should be fun. smile

Derek Smart may know a thing or two about business, but he's no leader. His people skills are so low they go into the negatives, and he's unable to say anything at all without bragging and being condescending. While I agree with a lot of the things he says in that post, he should never have been allowed to say them. I'm amazed that the investors even allow him to do PR when he would be better off hiding behind the scenes.

And publicly flaunting about firing the top people in the company is just bad form. It's no wonder he wasn't respected.

Mr Smart, respect is earned, not given.

I've got a reasonably beefy home studio for that already, thank you very much. slywink

Umm...actually I remembered you lived in Scandanavia. I was thinking one of the those eXtreme nordic sports where you do some major endurance skiing and pack around an arsenal of weapors, or maybe Reindeer breeding.  icon_razz

Well, we don't tend to pack weapons, but we do go skiing. In fact, that was the point of this weekend, except last year I tore a couple of ligaments in the knee that are still bothering me (operation pending). I let the other people do the skiing this time while I did the drinking.  ninja

Anyway, I had to take a break from the 360 for now. I didn't know a common cold could be this devastating. My eyes are watery and red, my nose is constantly running and tickling, and my throat hurts. I can't really concentrate on the games, so it's better to do something else for a little while.

Okay, I'm all set up. This console is noisy like hell!

My gamertag seems to be TiLT42.


Welcome to the world of Microsoft hardware. Jet like noises, RROD, and Disk Read errors are a part of the 360 gaming experience.

Not the new Jasper models.

Tilt, you got the new Elite bundle right?  It shouldn't be that noisy at dashboard.  If you're talking about in-game, then I highly recommend that you install every game you play to the HD... when you do that, the console is very quiet.  Do you know how to do that?

It's not excessively noisy at the dashboard, but enough that I can hear it. I played a little Fable 2 and couldn't believe how loud it got though.

I didn't initially know how to install games to the harddrive, but I do now. It'll probably help a lot. I'm finding the 360 interface to be confusing for someone who's used to the PS3 so far (and the bizarrely placed left thumbstick is giving me all kinds of finger issues). I was surprised I needed to fork out extra to make the controller rechargeable.

Got myself a really cheap 13-month membership to Live Gold, but dunno when I'll actually start taking advantage of it. I've got a bad cold right now which would make online communications even more awkward than usual. slywink

Just finished downloading Shadow Complex and will give it a try. I'll welcome all friend requests. smile

Mass Effect 2 actually handles the romance/sex aspect much better than most of Bioware's games, yet it's a long step away from dealing with the subject in a mature and realistic way. The sex scenes in Dragon Age are just embarassing.

Man, the title for this thread had me going for a second. I thought someone was going to make a thread with a more critical look at the game so that I could feel at home, but noooo. Tongue

So just in order to say my piece and then let you continue enjoying the game: I can't understand what people see in this game. Watching the crappy acting and hopeless characters in the GameTrailers review caused me physical pain and mental anguish. With a completely linear experience with nearly no say whatsoever on how to reach the end, and the only part where you do requiring endless grinding... well, it makes me really understand why I can't make myself play JRPGs.

Having said that, I can appreciate that tastes differ, so don't let me be a spoilsport.

Phew, I feel better now.  icon_razz

Wow.  From that article:

Quote
Well, as it turns out, when the Ubioft severs go down, no one can play their games and Ubisoft customers get very upset. At around 8am GMT, people began to complain in the Assassin's Creed 2 forum that they couldn't access the Ubisoft servers and were unable to play their games. Fast forward ten hours and it seems that the problem still hasn't been resolved, despite the assurances from a Ubisoft representative that the servers were 'constantly monitored'

(Emphasis mine)

Unable to play a single-player game that you bought because of a server being down?  That would really piss me off.  Fuck Ubisoft.

No, fuck pirates.  While I can acknowledge that, as a practical matter, legit users are being hosed, I continue to be amazed that there is so much ire directed at Ubi when the pirates *are the one causing the problem*.



psst buddy, pirates aren't your customers. why should a legit customer be punished for because someone else decided to not to purchase the game legally?

Precisely.  Now who, exactly, is preventing legitimate customers from reaching the Ubi servers?  

Would you appreciate it if you were shopping for groceries using cash widthdrawn from an ATM and the clerk told you he can't accept it because your bank is currently being robbed, since your bank has issued a rule that says nobody is allowed to use cash from their bank if the bank isn't available on the phone? The bank may be in the process of being robbed, but that shouldn't have anything to do with whether or not you can use the cash from their ATM machines.

Finished this up tonight.  Very much enjoyed it.  I have a couple of questions:

Spoiler for Hiden:
1) I understand why Scott goes after the dad after he gets almost drowned in the car, but not sure why he bothers asking questions about the son when he knows he's the killer.  I would think the most likely thing he'd do is just scare the old man to leave him alone and that would be it.

2) If Scott escapes, does that count for getting the trophy if they all live?  Jayden had knocked him off and I bother to help him up again and still got Scott killed in the grinder thingy.  What did you have to do to keep him alive?

Spoiler for Hiden:
  1)  The son is a copycat killer.  At the beginning of the game Scott knows there is one Oragami killing that he personally didn't do so he is out to investigate who the copycat is and why they are doing it. 

2) Scott doesn't have to live.  I'm not sure who exactly the four heroes are- three of them are Ethan, Madison, and Norman and the other is either Ethan's son or Lauren so you need them alive too for the trophy.  Also, Ethan has to be present in the warehouse at the end- if he's sitting in jail for the finale it doesn't count.

Spoiler for Hiden:
1)  Ah, I knew all that, but I guess I didn't connect it.  Thanks.

2) Weird.  I had everyone except Scott survive and Ethan saved Shaun.  I didn't get the trophy.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Did Lauren survive? I think she's the fourth person.
5667  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Convince me that I need a 360 (Update: Convinced) on: March 08, 2010, 11:10:43 AM
Didn't know that. Oh well, doesn't bother me too much. Also, I didn't say I didn't want those two games. I almost bought Pure for the PS3 a year ago, and I've wanted to try one of the Lego games for a while (though I do know Batman is one of the less fun ones).
5668  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Convince me that I need a 360 (Update: Convinced) on: March 08, 2010, 08:25:12 AM
So I gave the whole thing a little more thought and ended up forking out for an Elite bundle (with Lego Batman and Pure. Not two games I would have bought standalone, but both of them still appeal to me) with a few games and some extras (like the damned wifi kit). The ironic thing is that I bought my PS3 before its price drop, and I still ended up paying less for that one than I did for the 360. Tongue

The first few games on my list of things to play on it: Fable 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST and Shadow Complex. (Update: And Gears of War 2)

Oops, sorry for dropping out of the thread for a few days. I was on a trip with my coworkers and getting absolutely hammered. Tongue

I don't want to buy anything frivolous and certainly not an iPad. The mention of Shadow Complex is very, very enticing though. That's a game I was really envious that the 360ers got, but I had later forgotten about it. Crackdown is also interesting, particularly since I liked Prototype a lot (and way better than what I consider to be one of last year's most overhyped games: inFamous). Some of the other downloadable games mentioned in this thread are already available for the PS3 or will be in the very near future (and with games like Castle Crashers, the PS3-version should be superior).

As for multiplayer, I've had a rocky relationship with the concept. I used to be absolutely awesome (yes yes, I'm bragging) at the Quake games, but then I tired of the concept. I had a brief period where I played a bit of Unreal Tournament 2004 (which might be what KePoW is referring to. Thanks for the compliment, btw smile ) with the #gonegold IRC channel. I've really soured on the concept since though. I haven't even bothered to try the MP in MW2, and I gave Uncharted 2's MP about 3-4 hours of my time before retiring it. It's not that I don't think it's fun. It's just that I find most MP games these days way, way too repetitive. The process of spawning, running to a conflict point, exchanging a few shots, dying, respawning and so on is just tiring to me. I like more variety, and simply fighting different human opponents or playing on different levels isn't enough (and speaking from experience: Most games end up with 90% of the MP matches being played on one single map anyway). For reference, I'm the kind of MMORPG player who likes being in a living, breathing world full of real people, but who'd rather adventure solo than join a group. It doesn't help that English isn't my native language, making in-game conversations awkward.

As for getting a new hobby... do you mean something like boardgaming? I have about 30 different boardgames in my shelf. Roleplaying? I have tons and tons of RPG books and I'm DMing a 4th Edition D&D campaign. How about something non-gamey, like composing music? I've got a reasonably beefy home studio for that already, thank you very much. slywink I don't need more games, but I enjoy video games too much for me to feel comfortable about ignoring a whole platform (ie. the 360). If I am to do so, I at least want to give it a fair chance, hence this thread. As I said, the economic aspects aren't all that important. I've got a well paid job that I'm not in any real risk of losing (the economic crisis didn't really hit Norway) and I'm single, giving me lots of opportunities to spend money on myself and a whole lot of spare time to do so. slywink

None of my closest friends own 360s, btw (neither do they own PS3s for that sake, even though the PS3 is slightly stronger over here). If I were to join a community of players for gaming online, it would be with you guys.

I'm still not sure if I'm going to buy a 360 or not. You've all given me a lot of interesting arguments in both directions. I think I'm leaning a bit more towards the "buy it" side though. Thanks for all the input!

I guess I'm confused by your question.  

You aren't interested in the 360 exclusives.  You don't play multiplayer, aren't interested in Netflix, and use your PS3 for multiplatform games.

You don't need a 360.  

Unless you are just dieing to spend $300 on something you seem to not want.

My wallet is indeed itching, but I posted this thread simply because I'm not sure what I want. I was looking forward to Alan Wake on the PC btw, but with that out of the question it becomes an important part of the argument when I could get it for the 360.

I guess I can rephrase the question like this: Is there something important among the things I haven't mentioned in this thread that could sway me in one direction or the other? Is there a kickass exclusive I'm forgetting. Is there an upcoming exclusive that I'd like? Are there any good downloadable titles that are considered must-haves? The economic aspects here aren't important, but I don't want to pay for something I won't use much. Still, if I can get just a few great gaming experiences out of it, I'd consider it a good purchase at the price it's currently at.

They're cheap enough that I'll barely notice the dent in this month's finances and it'll fill out my collection of modern gaming consoles (I've got a solid PC, a PS3, PSP, DS and Wii already). I found a site that sold it for cheap and then looked at the games available.

Nothing really called out to me.

I mean, I've got every multiplatform title I care about for the PS3 already. The most interesting 360-excusives (such as the Mass Effect games) I already have for the PC. Games like Fable 2, Halo 3 and Gears of Wars 2 all look moderately interesting, but nothing screams "must-have" about them. I would normally care about Forza 3, but my Logitech Momo steering wheel won't work with the 360 as far as I can tell, and I don't want to pay out my nose for hardware that Microsoft wants their share of money from. I've also already got NFS:Shift, Grid and Dirt 2 to keep me busy on the PC. If I want to hook the 360 up to my wireless network I have to buy another piece of hardware that costs a criminal sum of money compared to what I get for it.

So why should I buy the 360? Convince me! I'm not into multiplayer and video rental services are probably not available for it here in Norway. There's just nothing exclusive on the 360 that I can see that would appeal to me in the same way as Uncharted, Heavy Rain or Little Big Planet.

An Underdark-focused MMORPG would become niche simply because the setting doesn't hold anywhere near the same kind of universal appeal as the Forgotten Realms in itself does (and the Underdark in no way requires even being in that setting. The Underdark exists in nearly all modern D&D settings). The only ones who would be really interested in an Underdark MMORPG would be those who are fans of the Drizzt novels, I suspect, and those aren't a large enough market by far.

I wanna play this but I dont wanna lose my saves crybaby. I am waiting for THE patch crybaby...

Eh, almost everyone gets through it just fine without losing their saves. If you're that nervous about it, just make sure you quit to the main menu and let it stay there for 5 minutes before turning off the console.

I wouldn't be so sure. Nothing has so far indicated that Nemesis even knows there's an alternate dimension. Keep in mind that the events that led up to its creation were orchestrated by Jacob alone as his means to prepare for his coming death (see last season's finale).

Also, there's only going to be one reality from mid-season unless we're being lied to.
