More bitchy whining from me, ignore it if you're not in the mood  icon_razz

Spoiler for Hiden:
I'm still shocked and dismayed with the money thing.  I'm now just sitting around letting the game run, moving the cursor every now and then so it doesn't go to sleep, just so I can have money accumulate.  Ridiculous. 

Spoiler for Hiden:
You don't need to do that.  Some will consider it "cheating" but you can just plug in a wired guitar controller if you have one and sign in with it.  Your character will just spin in a circle and the game will stay active for as long as you need.  That way you can just go to sleep and come back to a pile of cash.

That article indicated there are 3 shitty tables out (not part of the Marvel pack) but does not indicate which ones are indeed shitty.  Any guesses?

I'm guessing Extreme, Rocky and Bullwinkle and then either Nightmare Mansion or Rome.

I finally found out how to get to the last area on the map that was locked out; it's called Sunset House.

Spoiler for Sunset House question:
are there any clues in game about what I'm supposed to do with the place?  I found the gazebo with the posable statues and the house is transparent with no way to get in.  I was thinking maybe I needed to go there at sunset, but it was day when I found it and as soon as I entered the area it switched to night.


Spoiler for Hiden:
You need to head back there during the day and look at how the statues look during during the daytime.  Then when you come back at night, click on them make them look the same way.

When should I start buying property?  I just reached Bowerstone and won over the people.  I don't want to miss out too early since I don't accumulate gold when the game's off.  Yet I don't want to over complicate things too early either.

I would start buying businesses the moment you can get the pack from the road to rule.  Houses tend to be a huge pain with the current ultra-crappy repair interface.

The problem I have with exploring in Fable III is that there really is no benefit to it.  Sure, you might find a couple more dig spots or hidden chests, but I never received anything of significance from either.  It's not like exploring will cause you to stumble across hidden towns, quests, or NPCs...you just end up wandering for wandering's sake.  Some people probably dig that, but I find it a massive waste of time.

Well, that's not completely true. While there usually isn't any immediate payoff to exploring, you tend to find more silver and gold keys, which can lead to some pretty good treasure. There also is one "hidden" town that I found.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I forget the name of it. It's shown on the map but the quests never take you there. It's on the coast, and there are a lot of little islands to swim out to and explore. There was also a blue switch that looked identical to the switches you had to hit with your melee weapon back in the first dungeon, but I couldn't get close enough to activate the switch.

That place was called

Spoiler for Hiden:
Driftwood. I can't figure out how to get to that switch either,  there was another section that had a broken bridge in there, I'm thinking that if you go back later on after helping them clear out the Hobbes they may have worked on settling the islands.

Spoiler for Hiden:
That would be correct.  But you'll also need to do all three quests involving Driftwood to finish the entire switch sequence.  One you might miss is the one that starts in the bar in Bowerstone Market.

Yeah, i didn't tie it to any version, so I think since DLC works for everything, no need to start a new one.

Didnt they say that the dlc will come in two versions now for songs now: those that work with every rock band game, and for a selection of those, some that work with pro mode in RB3 in you want to pay extra for it?

Every time I have moved itunes in the past, I have copied the entire itunes folder over to the new computer. 

If the old itunes folder is copied right on top of the folder that the itunes program uses to store music on the new computer, itunes on the new computer will use the same library file and everything will work fine.

If you have your music/videos/etc stored somewhere else, then you will need to copy the itunes folder over and then copy everything else over in the same directory structure as the old computer.

Yes...it was great.  And this is coming from a Jeremy Brett fan.  I give major props to Jude Law for the great job he does as Watson.

While it does have a bit of comedy + James Bondish action thrown in, it is still at the core a Holmes mystery (with violin to boot) and a pretty good one at that.  The ending is a bit anti-climatic, but it does a good job of setting-up a series.

There are a couple of open-source/free programs that work similar to 3ds max and others.

Blender (http://www.blender.org/) is probably the closest to 3ds max and the most feature-packed.  Overall, I think it has a better modeling system than 3ds max, but 3ds does have more advanced rendering.  It is pretty easy to learn as well. If you are wondering about what it can do, here is a short film made entirely in Blender called Big Buck Bunny (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YE7VzlLtp-4).

Sketchup (http://sketchup.google.com/) is good for buildings/models and lets you import them/spatially reference them in Google Earth.

Geist3D (http://www.geist3d.org/download) is good for terrain and models.

OpenFX (http://www.openfx.org/) and Art of Illusion (http://www.artofillusion.org/) are great for raytracing and rendering.

Seamless3D (http://www.seamless3d.com/) is used for modeling is pretty simple compared to Blender.

did it really last for an hour?...felt a lot shorter


EDIT:actually do you guys have commercials during Family Guy?...Family Guy is on BBC3 here,so no commercials so that might be why it felt less than an hour

The whole thing is about 48 minutes total without commericals, but on TV is ran as 2 30-minute episodes with commericals.

I'm holding off.  You do know that the main storyline can't be played in co-op yes (at least, that's what I've been hearing).  I think there's some kind of co-op missions, but it's not the main storyline that can be co-opped.

It supposedly has 2 types of co-op missions.  One is a horde mode like in Gears of War 2, and the other is played with a persistent character that you complete different types of missions with and use your earnings to buy equipment and the like.  There isn't much information on either yet.

Is her magic staff skill high enough level to wield the staff without penalties?

Not a huge deal.  But the third DLC just came out today and its free.

It's simply a branded Unkut clothing/tattoo package just like the DLC for the first game.

I was hoping for some more missions, but I guess you can't argue with a $0 price tag.

Actually Jersoc I think they changed that for the 360 version. At least I don't remember being able to switch to gold before finishing the story on Silver.

Of course it could also be level limited... not sure.

The manual says that it requires level 60 to start gold and you have to have beaten the Silver campaign.

Platinum requires 100 and you need to beat the gold campaign.

Niob is 140 and have beaten platinum.

Once you have completed the game, you will get some vehicles and weapons that make the activities a lot easier.  You should try completing it through the epilogue first.  Also, try some of the missions co-op; you get full credit for it, the activities take about 1/2 the time and 1/4 the effort and you will have to do it anyways if you want the full 1000 achievement points.

As for mayhem, you might not have noticed that you have unlimited rockets for the duration of the activity.  You just need to find a place with a lot of small things to blow-up and you should be able to get some insane scores.

The new vehicles you get in your garage right away.  The clothes you can buy when ever you want.  You will have to play the game all the way to the end in order to get the new missions.  There are some multiplayer maps, too, but I haven't tried those.

There are 3 new missions in the DLC, they are pretty well done, but it goes by really fast.  I beat them in about an hour.  Tera Patrick as a homie is cool.

The cool part of the new DLC is the new coop mode.  Competitive coop is great; it plays like normal coop, but adds in a high score mechanism.  If you like to play it coop, this is a great download.  If you want it just for the new missions, I would probably recommend against it.

It seems like the humvee is a scout vehicle from the new red faction game (which volition is also making).  It has a missile launcher on top that fires as fast as you can pull the trigger.   I finally got to use the three-wheeler.  It works just like a motorcycle, only its a lot more stable.  The new vulture helicopter is basically the same as the medical copter but it has missiles and a minigun.  Overall, the new vehicles are great. 

I also liked the play on the GTA 4 DLC with the new motorcycle gang that is all over the city.

I didn't notice anything that different, but it did seem to me like the police might be a little more aggressive than before.

Does it even come with a game, lol?  That will be the next thing in marketing, I'm sure - all this cool stuff and no game.  If (when) that happens, someone is probably going to kill someone over it.  icon_eek

Didn't Atlus already do that with Persona 4?  icon_wink

I'm afraid I don't know what you mean, lol, since I got on the Persona 4 bandwagon late, so it was a basic Amazon order.  GT'ers suggested I go with P3 before P4, so I played P3 first.  I liked it a ton, and didn't want to spoil the P4 experience by playing them back to back.  I started another replay of Morrowind, then bought 3 DS games, then... well all of you with backlogs know what I mean, I'm sure.   retard

I was referring to the Social Link Expansion Pack for P4 which to me fell squarely into the "all this cool stuff and no game" camp.  icon_lol

Yikes! I had no idea that even existed, that is unbelievable - $168 (plus shipping, no Super Saver Shipping option) - and no game, wow.  I haven't played it yet, but I ordered it several months ago, maybe the super deluxe spiffy Expansion Pack wasn't available then.  I know I wouldn't have ordered it by mistake because of that price though.  That is just Crazy!  icon_eek

On the Ghostbusters topic, I think I'd prefer the more realistic one, but I'm not a big fan of G-Busters, so probably will pass on both anyway. 

It wasn't $168 when it first came out, it was $29.99.  The reason the price is so high now, it that it was Amazon.com exclusive and very limited on top of that.
