Rocket Race is an official Bungie game-variant isn't it?

sorry I haven't been joining any of yalls games recently... I don't like playing Custom games, because I'm too much of an achievement and leveling/ranking up whore.  I just like to feel like I'm at least accomplishing and advancing something whenever I play any MP, but you don't get any EXP whatsoever in Custom games.  also, I really don't mind playing playing against and hearing random people out there, unlike a lot of you who complain so much about the 'crowd'...I'm super insensitive and either laugh at them or totally ignore them, I couldn't care less lol

if any of yall ever want to Party up and play in the official Matchmaking games, I'm always up for that

Kepow, if you are ever in matchmaking and need a frag partner, send me an invite and I'll join you.

Earlier this week, Jarrodk, PapaSmurff, DamageInc  and I went on to the matchmaking team slayer mode (Great, great teamwork  thumbsup).  We had a good night, won a lot more matches than we lost, and I think I got promoted twice.

but watching my wife bitch-slap USMC Kato at the gravity lift on Valhala and watching his corpse catapault across the screen like a rag doll while his laughter got quieter and quieter as his body soared away was just priceless.

Ha that was so priceless and great that I saved that film of your wife killing me while I flew away.

ok, really liking the game alot.   however, i'm at a point where i'm frustrated enough to quit

i'm in Chapter 2 at the Fort.   i'm running around the inside hitting switches and climbing latters and i have no freakin idea where to go or what to do next.   i've hit several switches and i've probably screwed something up.  i've been in there now for about an hour and i'm frustrated enough to quit the game all together. 

anyone tell me what i'm looking for to get out of this damn place?   i realize hitting the switches moves the platforms, but without an overhead map or anything, i can't tell a damn thing of what i have done.   someone fill me in before i ship it back to Gamfly.

This is literally the only place where I had to use GameFaqs.

also - what the hell is that thing you skyjacked??? and can we please put it into a map?  i thought seeing the helos for the first time last night was neat but i want to fly a covi heavy

If I remember correctly I think thats just a regular banshee, except that screenshot I took is at an angle that makes it look bigger.

Later on that day, we had some great multiplayer battles, and here is one of them where it was 4 vs 4 vs 4 with us being the PINK team.

I'm up for some MP.  So when is GT/OO MP bash nite?

How about Friday night?  hepcat suggested an old-timers game over at OO for all of us with slowly degrading twitch skills, and since the GT Friday Night Gears of War sessions were an absolute blast I'd love to play MP Halo 3 with the GT/OO crew.  I hope to have my copy today (F-ing free shipping can go to hell), and I would love to play MP Friday night.

Im in for Friday, and I qualify for being an old-timer as well  icon_biggrin

See you all there!

Game arrived friday for me. Freakin fantastic so far. I think my main party is going to be the bow chick(just got her, cant remember name), Polka and Retto. Been destroying so far. I'm going to guess that people outside your party do not gain any xp what so ever. Is this going to be a problem later on does anyone know? Or did RPG's finally do away that standard?

Actually the inactive party members do get experience, only just half so its not that bad.  Oh and the bow chick is named "Viola". She is really a badass and the farther away she shoots her targets, the more damaging it is.

Friday night Multiplayer 9/28? In my humble opinion the GamingTrend community is the best for MP and Co-op play. Everyone is really cool and just here for fun. 

Heck, I even enjoy it when I constantly get pwned by papasmurff, Harkonis, and PeteRock.

Got my pre-order and from what I can see, no difficulty option but the game comes with a dual language option (English or Japanese).  Oh well, it sure is pretty  icon_smile  Impressions a bit later, but so far so good.

I'm a sucker for these games, so I'll be picking this one up on release day  nod

After spending probably too much time with Blue Dragon, I think 20-30 hour RPG will be a nice change of pace.

My picks are:

Shadowrun for the Sega Genesis

Finished it! Had a good time... I'll give more thoughts later through. Just wanted to let you know that I did manage to finish with about 90 achievement points... You don't even get any for beating the game :-p. Despite that I enjoyed it though. Not sure I have the drive to load a save point and play another 20 hours with no real point other than to try to get some of the achievements. In the end I think my characters were in the low 50s for level and I had about 43 hours (+ a couple from redos). Overall I'd give it a 8.0 or so. Enjoyed it, and I played through, but I wasn't blown away.

Jesus, finally finished it.  29 out of of 43 achievements for a total of 525 points  icon_confused    Total Time: 78 hours  icon_eek     My party was around in the low 70's. 

Nice, solid game.  Now I can move on....

Just a quick update, I'm still on disc 2 (near the end) and I'm already clocking in around 50+ hours, party is around level 42-44 playing on Hard mode.  If anyone just started playing hard mode, you  really need to start to specialize you party right away...like a balanced mmo party.  For example I have 2 tanks in the front row and the last 3 are healer, damage caster, and ninja/support. 
2634  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Star Ocean 4 - first details and screens! on: September 07, 2007, 08:55:18 AM
Even though I own a PS3 and 360, I hope that Microsoft doesn't ignore the RPG market like it "mostly" did with the original XBOX.  I know there are some great upcoming RPG/titles coming out, but beyond that, I don't know of any.  I hope some new RPG franchises makes its way to the box.
2635  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Blue Dragon Getting Some Poor Reviews on: September 05, 2007, 02:55:11 AM
Well for me I'm on disc 2 (maybe halfway through) and I have logged in about 40 hours give or take and hour or so.  I'm playing on the hard difficulty and I do have to grind just a little bit.

Well about 4 hours in on hard, and it's just that.  The boss fights right now are really hard.  I'm working my way through them, but it almost has me wanting to start over on normal before i get too far.  Anyone else playing on hard have any impressions on the combat.  I will admit I am having to really pay attention to my skills inorder to win.

Well, I'm almost 16 hours in on hard difficulty, and the boss battles, hell even the normal mobs are hard hard hard! I die so much during boss fights (I have to buy a lot of revives).  So if that kind of play style isn't your cup of tea, maybe a restart is in order.  Oh and yeah, I'm still having a great time.

At first I thought combat was going to be lame, but the more levels I get, and the more skills I unlock, the more fun it becomes.  There is actually quite a bit of strategy involved, which is great.  Now if only the game were more difficult, so the strategy actually meant something.

Edit:  Took out my complaining about how the game is way too easy.  I'll just restart it when the patch comes out in the US.  Love the game other than that.


I'm about 14 hours in with my characters around level 25-26 on hard difficulty and I'm having a great time.  Sometimes during the boss battles and the harder mobs it gets really challenging, but not impossible, with the hard download.

as i am half way through the game i will wait and hope it appears on our shores....the shuffle dungeon is 400points so i wont be able to download that from a foriegn account anyhow

I was able to buy the dungeon and item pack with a redeem code.  The dungeon description says 30 new items, 10 new bosses, but I need to be at least level 50! So I guess I won't be able to try out the new content in a while. 

I hope people disappointed with the easy difficulty downloads the Hong Kong content. 
So you definitely recommend experienced RPGers play on hard right? havent started yet.

Yes, in my opinion experienced RPGer's start on hard.  Especially in my case where I'm used to Persona 3 type difficulty. 

Oh and to sign up a Hong Kong account:

Sign out of current account

Select Join Xbox Live

Enter new gamertag, select new region (HONG KONG!)

going to need to input another email address, fake home address, fake phone number etc etc...

after all that just go to the games download section tab in the Hong Kong account, Find blue dragon, download the difficulty pack

Are we going to get the difficulty level patch here in the US? (I don't want to mess with creating foreign accounts just to get a patch.)

Also can you change the difficulty in mid game?

There is no doubt that we will get the dungeon and difficulty downloads, the question is when.  There isn't an option to change difficulty mid-game, only the voiced language options.

I'm glad I created a hong kong account to get the downloads, it is relatively painless. And just for giggles I bought the new dungeon and item/treasure pack and they work in the U.S. version.
