Is there any benefit or penalty to getting a high or low ranking on a mission?  It seems silly that they'd limit it to only one factor to determine mission rank.  Would have been more interesting, and appropriate, to have different missions scored differently.

I'd hate to lose out on goodies because I actually wanted to spend time and enjoy the game.

You won't lose out on goodies at all for getting low rankings.  The xp you get from getting an "S" rank all the way down to a "D" rank is very very very minimal...I tested it out.  Besides, there are skirmishes you can play if some people feel they are missing out on a little bit of extra xp.

Ugh. I'm unexpectedly awake at 4:30 CST and have a full day of traffic, airports, flights, and other travel drains to look forward to. I'm wondering if I'll have anything left for GOW2 tonight.  crybaby

And I was about to come in here and lament my inability to miss out on online MP with the gang.  No matter how much I try to convince myself why I can't pick up a new game, when have I ever actually succeeded in doing so?  The wife has a friend visiting in town, Moliere has plans so our pool night is postponed, the girls are all going out for a "girls' night out", and I've got a case of Sam Adams Oktoberfest waiting for me at home in the fridge.  How can I not pick up Gears of War 2 for some online action tonight?  It is almost as if it were meant to be.  Fabulous

After all, it has been quite some time since I last enjoyed shoving my chainsaw blades down Lettuce's throat.   icon_twisted

From what I can tell we've got an "IN!" from Purge, pr0ner, Lettuce seems tentative depending on his jet lag, and it just wouldn't be Gears MP without PhillyPeteRock.  Where the hell is Kato?  I'm also trying to remember some of the other Gears of War regulars.  Man, it really has been a while. 


Sorry, I've been busy getting ready to move our household to good old Fort Knox Kentucky.  However, this is my last week at home and the last time I can play with you guys for a while so of course I went out and got GOW2.  See you guys there tonight.

I found a gripe about the game that is becoming really annoying. Zoning in sometimes you will get ambushed by a small army. I fasted traveled to some place in DC and suddenly there was 10 super mutants all brute or higher. I was almost dead before I figured out what was going on. This wouldn't be too bad if they followed you into buildings so you can set up some mines and shit to help, but they don't. They'll wait outside for you. Granted i managed to run away and find some rubble for cover, but god damn that's becoming old. They could at least spawn a block away or so, not literally right on top of you.

Also how come at range I have like a 10% to hit, but those fucking rail guns will hit me with every bullet. I would think my sniper rifle with all my vats perks would be a bit more accurate than a gun designed solely for pray n spray.

The mobs always follow me inside, and yes I set traps for them when they do.  Weird that its not happening to you.  Isolated incident maybe?

And I totally agree about the accuracy of the enemy.  At extreme sniper range, regualr raider mobs are hitting me easily with their SMGs....  icon_confused

I wasn't planning on it for this playthrough but if you recommend it I'll be sure to grab it as soon as I hit the perk level.

Just remember you need at least to have your LUCK at 6 to get it.  The stranger is a great help, especially playing at the hard difficulty levels......when he appears it plays some pretty cool music.

Going through the options screen, I'm very pleased that they have included the original Japanese language voice track.

Awesome.  I was hoping for that.  You have the US version and not the EU version?  (Can't keep track of where you live these days.) slywink

US version.  Really really liking the game a lot.  Makes me wish for an updated XCOM using this engine and playstyle.

edit: There is also an optional HD install to drastically reduce the load times.  Takes around 5-7 min.  If you got the space for it, us it. 

This game has options for inverted controls for horizontal and vertical (all games should include this)

Only 4 hours in, but already Valkyria Chronicles has the potential for me to be my #1 GOTY.

edit #2: I initially switched over to Japanese voice acting, however I just switched over to English and the voice actors are pretty good.

Walter disappeared on me as well and I spent a lot of time looking for him. Luckily I was well beyond needing money at the point he disappeared.

On the xbox 360 version of the game, Walter was no where to be found.  A few days later, as I was doing some quests around town, I came across his body.  Either he fell to his death, had a heart attack, or was shanked by Jericho...who knows.

Received the game this evening already (Overnight shipping).  Going through the options screen, I'm very pleased that they have included the original Japanese language voice track.  Too tired to start up the tutorial or campaign so more impressions later on today.

For me right now its:

1. Fable 2
2. Fallout 3
3. Saints Row

This may change since I'll be getting Endwar, GOW2, and Valkyrie Chronicles this month.

Finished the game last night, completing 865 points in achievements.  Which means I almost saw and did everything I could.  Fable 2 for me is one of the few games that kept me playing non-stop, and is one of the best (single-player) games I have ever played  thumbsup

Sure there are a few little issues and the game is not perfect, but the experience was well worth my money.  Supposedly Fable 2 is having great success sales wise, so there is hope for another sequel. 

Bring on Fallout 3!!!

Per Kato expressing interest in co-op Fable 2, Fable 2 and possibly Far Cry 2... lots of shooters at the moment... might be shooter'ed out unless of course there is good MP to be had. 

My pre-order for Fable2 will be available at midnight where I live.  Going to skip FARCRY2 for now, like you said too many shooters atm.  From last week I gotta pick up dead space as well.

Harkonis (Rock Band Maestro)



DamageINC (Loyal Raiders Fan and Snack Bringing Genius)




Zero (Doubling the Asian Population in Phoenix)



Knightshade Dragon (The Man, the Myth, the Legend)



I had a fantastic time  thumbsup thumbsup thumbsup  The PeteRock family are the most fabulous hosts.  Seeing everyone that could make it was great!

The only thing that could have made it better was if the 49ers had won the game..... disgust damn Eagles.  I had to endure that crazy-ass fight song sooo many times.   slywink

I'm keeping this kind of short for now, I'm still a little tired from that weekend.  But all in all it was great food, great company, a great time.

Though, as the V.P. on your ticket PeteRock will win in a landslide of mourning, easily becoming the first truly fabulous POTUS. And that fabulosity will move mountains. He will give Americans strength, humility and entertainment with weekly "fireside treatises." He and Simba will lead America, by example, to a new age of love, understanding, and agility training. And he will unite Palestine and Israel over pool, beer, and home-made pasta ribs with shaved chocolate. It will be the dawning of the third age of mankind. And Kato's love of a crappy beer will make it happen.

Thank you USMC Kato. For all you have done. And all you will do.  biggrin

You ought to keep the XBox hooked to a chat channel like we've been doing in Madden.  I don't know how many people it can support, but something where we can drop in and chat with the guest of honor.

Now that's a cool idea!

Odds are we'll be playing Rock Band or any number of games throughout the night, but those attending the party "in spirit" are more than welcome to send a chat invite and once we finish our set or if we can pause our current game we'll try to get Kato on the line to chat throughout the party.  I've got a new wireless headset so communication should be a breeze.

Depending on Kato's travel arrangements we've offered up our guest room for as long as he needs to stay in Phoenix and assuming he'll arrive at a reasonable hour we're hoping to host a Phoenix-area GamingTrend USMC Kato Asian Ninja Pirate get-together on whichever night he is in town.  All area GamingTrend forum members will be invited.  We'll just have to make sure that Kato paces himself on his two Bud Lites so he isn't face-down on the carpet before all guests have arrived.   wasted

At least we'll be adhering to the old forum adage of "get him drunk first and then......"

So I will be getting a flight down to Phoenix either on the 10th or 11th of October.  I was going to arrive there a weekend earlier, but I will be having eye surgery (lasik) to fix my pirate problem. 

Also, my drinking prowess has been underestimated.  Another thing, my team, the great and powerful football team 49ers...will be playing the Eagles on Sunday  headbang3
