I guess for people who can't come up with the money upfront it isn't a terrible deal.

This is the only good review of Lockout I have seen

Quote
Remember when action movies were fun, slick, fast-paced and centered on a lovable muscle-bound jerk with a quip for every occasion? Lockout does — the new "space prison" movie, out today, feels like it was filmed in 1987 and somehow preserved in a vault for the past 25 years. If you miss the days of classic Schwarzenegger and Kurt Russell films, then Lockout will be a total joy to behold.

Quote
This movie throws logic and realism so far out the airlock, you can see them flying off into interstellar space, while Snow is violating the laws of physics and good sense. Some major plot points that happen in the second half of the movie are so ludicrous that you'll be either groaning or shrieking with laughter. I opted for the latter, and I was laughing every few moments in this film. Between the cornball dialogue and the totally nonsensical plot twists, this film kept me beyond diverted.

2569  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Cabin in the Woods on: April 13, 2012, 08:06:34 PM
Anyone got a link to a spoiler filled review or plot summary?  I don't really like horror movies so I know I won't go see it but I do have this morbid fascination about reading bout the stories.  All the reviews I have read say "I don't want to spoil it" or "No spoilers in this review" well I want that!

So can somebody spoil me please?

Oh hey!  Blueprint 3D looks like a fun, simple game involving blueprints shattered into pieces around a 3d space that you have to rotate into the proper orientation to look correct from your 2d perspective.  The metacritic reviews certainly seem positive.  The "top in in-app purchases!" headline scares me a little, because it makes me wonder how aggressive their in-app moneymaking scheme is going to be. 

I picked it up on sale and am enjoying it quite a bit.  Of course I have only played a handful of levels but I think I have a pretty good feel for it (kind of how you know a game of doing jigsaw puzzles pretty quickly.)  It is pretty much exactly what you expect based on reviews and descriptions.

Well worth a buck for me!

Very easy really.  Probably couldn't be done with one hand but not hard at all with two.  And it doesn't feel loose fitting as things that are easy to take off sometimes do.

2577  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: [vita] Grips anyone tried some on: March 29, 2012, 06:29:55 PM
Alright I have both now and thought I would post some impressions.

PDP PSVita Trigger Grips

- good
Much faster shipping.
Nice fit.
Doesn't interfere with any of the Vita.

- bad
Not that much bigger than the Vita without grips so still felt small to me.

CTA Digital PS Vita Hand Grip
- good
Bigger so more comfortable (for me)
Cheaper

- bad
Stupid long shipping times for something sold on Amazon
Covers up the charging port, and the game port so you have to take it out to do those functions.



All in all they are both alright options but neither is perfect.  I do like holding the Vita more with either set though than just the default. 

I have posted my PDPs for sale if anyone is interested.

Since it is out soon I thought we should resurect the thread.

To start you can watch the www.gametrailers.com review.  They love it.

I can't wait until my copy arrives!  Of course finding 70+ hours to play a game is going to be a challenge.

I am hooked.  It seems like a fun, hip comedy which also tackles some real life tough issues - all in a convenient 1/2 hour format!

You’ll Be Able To Play Baldur’s Gate On Your iPad This Summer


Quote
PC role-playing game Baldur's Gate will soon be living in a post-PC world. The beloved classic will be out for iPad this summer, developer Overhaul Games said today.

It will also feature new content (!) and a new party member (!!!).

Overhaul writes in a press release:

    Running on an upgraded and improved version of the Infinity Engine, Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition™ will include the entire Baldur's Gate adventure, the Tales of the Sword Coast expansion pack, and never before seen content including a new adventure and new party member.

They could deal a big blow to the whole "slow release" thing if they just pushed out an update which allows PSOne games to work.  Not a knockdown punch perhaps but if suddenly we could play all the PSOne games available on the Playstation store I personally would be happy waiting for Vita releases.  Of course lots of people don't want to play old stuff so it won't make everyone happy.




Quote from: Bullwinkle on March 17, 2012, 04:06:31 PM

You know, I was looking at the release list on Gamestop, and there's a big problem for Vita (whether you're in Pittsburgh or not).

Some people may want Disgaea 3 mid-April or Mortal Kombat at the beginning of May, but for me, the next release of any interest is Resistance on 5/29.  Then Gravity Rush 6/12.  LBP 6/26.  And that's it until maybe Warrior's Lair at the end of freaking September.

That's 3 game's between now and the end of the summer.

E3 better have a lot of imminent release announcements, but even if it does, that's in June.  I've only got one release of interest between now and then.

New Japanese trailer.  Holy crap!  This just looks amazing!
At the SuperHero Hype link for the same movie, they tout a "surprise cameo" from a Marvel character and everybody's stumped on who that is. Pepper Potts (Paltrow) is a regular Iron Man movie character so I don't think that qualifies as a "surprise cameo." If that's what SuperHeroHype meant, they should be pummeled about the head and shoulders.  disgust

There is some guy on a plane with Pepper at the 15 second mark, and there was some speculation maybe someone like Hank Pym (Ant-Man) makes a cameo.


Well the exact quote is "and a surprise cameo from a familiar Marvel Studios movie character."  I would say Pepper was a familiar Marvel Studios movie character.

Yeah but it doesn't seem to be a bad bit to cut.
Quote
Says Whedon, "There's a lot of me that got cut out, but I think part of the process in a situation like this is you make the movie, you make your movie, then you remove yourself out of the equation. At some point you stop looking beyond The Avengers movie, at your own stuff... You go, 'You know what, The Avengers are more important than I am so these things that I'm obsessed with aren't necessarily moving the story forward, and therefore they are baggage.'"

Of course it does mean that people need to wait on the DVD purchase since there will undoubtedly be a "Director's Cut."  Since is coming out in May there will be bear-bones version by Christmas and then the "real" version after.  (But how could they resist Christmas sales?)

I am actually a little tired of the "trailer for the trailer" thing.  Just give me the trailer.  I know hype is important but once was cute, doing it a second time it just annoying.

I went ahead and ordered the CTA ones.  I figure 13 isn't that big of a deal.   I will post some impressions here when I have played with them.
