Where are Li and Van Damme?  Are their parts so small they didn't make the poster?

Didn't they already have a Doctor Who movie?  Why will this suck less than that did?

I suppose it isn't surprising that such a charged topic brings out a bit of tension but lets try to keep is civil and stick to the code like good pirates...wait that is a movie line...anyway try to remember we are all friends.

I really want to buy Skyrim but it is so hard to justify with the huge a*& backlog I have.    I probably will give in but it is hard to think I will have any more luck finishing this.

I discovered I had enough Amazon points to cover the game so what could I do?  I mean they practically forced me to buy the game. smile

How can 90% of guys not look at those two women, then read the title "6 Ways Money Really Can Buy Happiness" and not instantly go into the gutter?

I find it hard to believe the more juvenile members of their staff didn't snicker when they posted the article.

Intro of the game.  Spoilers obviously so be warned.

More gorgeous videos for your viewing pleasure.  I am really torn as to whether I like this better or Skyrim.  They are both stunning but both very different in their style.

Luckily I can play both!

Don't get me wrong, I consider Uncharted 2 to be the best game I have ever played on any system. EVER. But even I'll admit there are a few odd bits to the story.

+1.  In order to keep things tough they do things often which get the bad guys into areas Drake had to do a lot of work to get to.

No, I'm not trolling.

Here's a list of complaints.
Shooting is not terribly satisfying.  Enemies take too many hits to bring down unless you are getting headshots and even then there are
enemies that take multiple headshots.  Furthermore many encounters take place in waves of three, which serves to compound the issue and makes combat feel tedious.   The waves are less an issue in 2 but still present.  Furthermore you are essentially moving from kill room to kill room, though 2 does a better job of disguising this.

At times you will be in a kill room but it is not obviously hard gated.  I'm thinking specifically of the crashed train in the snow in 2 where I went around stealth killing all the enemies but missed one at the far corner of the area I'm guessing.  I then found what appeared to be the path out and tried to leave and was killed in a cutscene.  This is not good design.  From some of the stuff I've read on 3 it has more of these types of issues.

Throughout the games you are making impossible jumps, and finding secret passages etc only to end up in one of these kill rooms that is heavily fortified with enemies.  It strains credulity after having to go through so much to find this place to have had these guys apparently just casually waltz in before you got there.

Sequences sometimes tend to go on too long, the train sequence in 2 I think as an example that should have been shorter than it was.  It started out as exciting but before it was done I was pretty sick of it.   I'd say the same for the Helicopter boss fight in two, where even though Naughty Dog seems to love the rule of three for things like enemy waves they eschew it in this fight as the chopper takes far more than three shots from the grenade launcher.

And also along the lines of bosses, having a human boss that is ultimately immune to gunfire and has to beaten via hand to hand was seriously immersion breaking.  It very much supports the idea that is presented in the Eurogamer review that you are more an actor in their script than an agent within the game.  If they wanted a fist fight there, they could have at least disarmed you in a cutscene instead of having made the boss effectively immune to gunfire.

I know I had other issues but it's been a while since I've played them.  The graphics are great, and it is well voice acted, my problems are more with the moment to moment gameplay.


Your complaints are valid and I agree with them but the overwhelming greatness of the rest really trumps the nitpicks for me anyway.  I also dropped the difficulty to easy and issue 1 went away. 

As for the impossible jumps...isn't that a staple of games/movies?  Like a real person is going to be dragged behind a truck by his whip, climb back up to the truck, climb to the cab fight a Nazi, throw him out of the truck, and then steal the truck with the Ark?  I don't think so but I really enjoyed Raiders of the Lost Ark

Number 3 is the same type of deal.  Every movie and game like this needs to setup the pieces for some action in the story.  People could pick any movie or game to pieces. 
2578  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception!! on: October 24, 2011, 07:31:33 PM
I watched the Gametrailers review and the only disappointing thing I heard was how short the SP game looks to be.  They said something under 10 hours.  I know MP is popular and they seem to have put a lot of effort into it but I want a great and long Uncharted story.  It seems like I will only get 1 of those.

dammit, this game and Skyrim are going to get into an argument, I just know it.

As much as I've loved the Zelda series in the past, Skyrim wins hands down.

That said - I've already asked for Zelda (the CE, as I don't have the Wii Motion+ dongle thingy as my Wii sits dormant and unplugged) for Christmas.

I went the other way and picked Zelda.  There is never any more content for a Zelda game so I know I will be getting the final, full verson.  With Skyrim I just know that within a year there will be a GOTY edition with expansions, improvements etc.

I assume you can merge your own thread?  Tongue

Oops. 

I don't see an option to merge, just split, move, delete, and a few others.



Of course then the question is - do we have so many threads that we need to make sure all of one topic stays in one thread?   I will dump it this afternoon if people want but I loved the trailer too much to delete the topic so quickly.   nod


Now, back to watching it again!

The iPhone 4S Is Microsoft’s Chance to Catch up to Apple  At least according to a Gizmodo article.

Quote
Right now, Microsoft's awesome Metro user experience is the only real alternative to Apple's dominance. Not in market share—yet—but in terms of technological superiority. FAF, if you will, the Fucking-Awesome Factor. To me, Windows Phone 7.5 feels like the only real challenger to Apple's iOS 5 superiority.

I really enjoyed this game the first time - I just wish they would put out an iPad version.  We can get 50 million hidden object games but there are not many games of other types from Big Fish for the iPad.
2592  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / FS/FT: 3DS on: September 29, 2011, 06:48:01 PM
I am not feeling the 3D love.  I also can't see the 3D after playing with it in every postion so I want my DSiXL back.  My 3DS is black, it has a power cable and works great - no box though.  I will trade for a DSiXL or I will take $120 for it.  Right now the cheapest Amazon price for a used 3DS is $145 (not always a great indicator but at least it tells you something)


So PM me if your interested.

Jade Empire to return still not ruled out

Quote
Jade Empire may return - BioWare is "just looking for the right way to deploy it".

That's what BioWare co-founders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk told a packed audience at the Eurogaer Expo 2011 today.

"We've been talking a lot about that actually on and off over the years," said Ray Muzyka, BioWare CEO.


How many ways are there to "deploy it"?  Xbox/PS3, and PC.  Perhaps they are thinking of making it a smart phone game instead.

And put me in the camp of day one purchasers.  I loved the first one.

Apple might provide a safe little sandbox, but as I'm sure some of you are aware, there are certain users that shouldn't be allowed out of a safe little sandbox.  They're just going to screw things up and need your help to resolve it.

To be more fair they provide a huge sandbox.
