and it is out

I actually thought the teasers did a better job of telling us about the story but it is still good.

It does sort of clear up the whole "is it an Alien prequel" thing because you see a couple things that were seen on the planet in the first Alien so it would be hard to say it isn't a prequel.

A bit of leaked footage.  Watch at your own risk.


Spoiler for Hiden:
Reminds me a lot of the bank heist in the 2nd movie.  A deliberate setup to show how thoughtful the bad guy is.

Bane is much smaller than the one you posted. Although Tom Hardy is smaller than either one from the comics, Nolan's Batman movies have always been more grounded on reality. Hardy fits that bill much better than a mountain of muscle.

I understand that and as I said I have faith in Nolan generally but I think purposefully picking a villain known to be huge - larger than is really possible- and then changing him is an odd choice.   However this a battle that has raged since the first pics of Hardy came out so I won't continue and like I said I will see the movie.  I am just wary.

2729  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Batman 3, aka Dark Knight Rising on: December 20, 2011, 04:06:22 PM
It looks ok and I have faith in Nolan based on his other work but I am really disappointed in Bane. 

This is Bane




Not this

It is seems very odd when trailers get trailers doesn't it?  I liked it and all but it just seemed silly.

I didn't laugh in the slightest as I watched that utter ass of a trailer.

Who the hell greenlighted this shit?

I have to agree.  I didn't even smile during it.  To be fair though I never really liked the 3 stooges so I am not their target demographic. Still I am willing to wager it will flop horribly.

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.

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. 
2754  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.

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!
