Shocking, just shocking!  I am just surprised Hollywood would milk at franchise which rakes in the cash.  Have they no shame? 

Seems like this was a given, but I guess it is faster than most people thought.

Thoughts from the AV Club

Quote
I would not be surprised if Stargate Universe randomly turned into a pretty fun show somewhere along the way, but in its first three episodes, itís not there yet. The storytelling is a mess, the cast is underutilized, and the dark aesthetic of the series mostly just seems to be there because someone from on high demanded a darker aesthetic than the seriesí ancestors had. Despite the fact that it has these numerous problems, though, tonightís two hour pilot inexplicably ends on a note thatís going to almost guarantee you tune in next week, even if next weekís episode ultimately disappoints as much as this one. For fans of sci-fi, thereís something deeply buried at the core of Stargate Universe that has appeal, but the series is having a little trouble unearthing it at present.

I liked Atlantis. We didn't need this show. I hate SYFY.

Like SG1, Atlantis was very good until the last season (well the last 2 seasons for SG1).  I will give this new one a try but I don't need a darker stargate.  I liked the humor and the camp with the previous shows.

Really?  I remember the thread about it and people were talking about how they spent a ton of time with it.  Is there just that many side quests and other stuff to do?
2925  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fable 2: Episode 1 now available. on: September 30, 2009, 02:01:52 AM
I got this tonight and have been rather impressed so far.  I will definitely add the full game to my Gamefly queue.  The only drawback for me is that it appears long.  For many people that is a great thing but I have "gaming ADD" so I always want to be getting the newest great thing.  One of the big reasons I use Gamefly.  Since I hardly finish games before I want a new one it just makes sense to save the $$$.  However Fable 2 seems really great so far.

I was going to say Valkyria Chronicles on the 360 but since #2 is coming out on the PSP and I own that I guess I am happy there, so maybe Uncharted 2 (and one really) on the 360.

2928  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [ds] shin megami tensei: devil survivor impressions on: September 29, 2009, 01:17:38 PM
So after all that I beat it last night.  I lucked out and got Kudlak down to 33 HP on my first two moves which meant that Mari was up.  Considering she usually doesn't do a lot of damage I figured I was actually sunk but she managed to pull it off!  With Kudlak dead that early in the fight I was able to slog through the rest of the demons. 

Oh and yes jersoc, I know I can lose that and still go on but I just hate to do it.  I get that same way when I play Fire Emblem.  You can almost always go on but I just hate doing it knowing I missed something. 

Now I can fuse both Kudlak and the good demon (forget its name) when I get to the right level!  I hope they are good.

2930  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [ds] shin megami tensei: devil survivor impressions on: September 28, 2009, 09:15:24 PM
Yeah...I am past that....that is annoying.  I am getting sick of grinding.  The battle is so hard that I am actually not getting much experience from "hard" free battles at this point so leveling is about impossible.  So far that is the only thing I really don't like about the game.  I have loved it up to this point.  I guess I will kill him so I can at least crack one of the skills he has - because if all 4 of my characters attack him in the first round I kill him!  I have just been trying to get it so Mari kills him instead of me.

Disney is ready to replace Depp if he won't do the film so at least we won't have to worry about not getting a Pirates movie...we just won't get a good one.

(if you've done everything right, & kaido shows up, he will attack the boss, but deliberately not kill him, so that mari can)...

How do I get him to show up?  It would really help to have another person to fight but he isn't showing up for me...
2933  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [ds] shin megami tensei: devil survivor impressions on: September 28, 2009, 07:28:03 PM
I am getting spanked by a specific battle and looking for help.

It is the Mari/Kudlak fight on day 5.  This battle is quite a bit harder than even the "hard" battles at this point which doesn't make sense unless I am doing something wrong.  The best I have done is to have Mari kill Kudlak but then the other guys beat the snot out of me.

Here on Yahoo  Looks like of interesting.  I love Denzel so I will probably see it.  The writer (Gary Whitta)  posts on quarter to three which is how I found out about it.  I hope it is good.  I played that character in Fallout 3 so I want the movie to be that good.

if this all sounds like i'm not recommending the game, well, that's because, to an extent, i'm not smile . from the little i've played (7 hrs), i think persona fall squarely into that 'only dedicated JRPG fans go back to play it or those curious about the past' category that turtle mentioned in another thread. it's very nicely cleaned up & re-localized, but the gameplay's very old-school, & not nearly as refined as recent smt games. iow, if you liked p3-4, & wanna play some more smt, & haven't played either devil summoner 2 or devil survivor, i'd say go with either of those before trying this...

I am working my way through Devil Survivor on the DS now and have Persona 4 in my Gamefly queue...perhaps I will just sit this one out until I have finished those.

I am not hooked yet either but games which try to be funny are few and far between so I will give the demo a look.

More impressions please.  I am thinking about dusting off my PSP and picking this up so I would like to know how it is holding up for you.

This is great for me since I never got to play them originally.  I think putting SNES era stuff on the DS is great.

Oh here is the link to the 1up story.

2942  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [psp] persona impressions on: September 22, 2009, 09:25:15 PM
Isn't this a remake of the same game on the PS1?  Just improved translations, adding some content which was cut from the US release...so shouldn't there be gamefaqs guides?

2943  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: From Your Personal Perspective, Who is Winning This Generation of Consoles? on: September 22, 2009, 12:58:42 PM
I voted Wii.  I think in 10-15 years people will remember what the Wii did (new input, introduced a ton of people to gaming)  While the 360 and PS3 are great they are just incremental improvements on what their companies produced before and will produce next.  Just another in the series.  The Wii was/is something truly different.

They seem proud of the quick time events for boss fights...which kinda stinks.

I am also not a big fan of blood splattering my screen.  It feels very artificial.

And it is gone.

Thanks!

Finished up this fine game and now would like something else.  $20 (shipping included).  I am looking for Dragon Quest 5, or any offer I guess.  

Thanks for looking.

Is there any way to replay videos?  I beat the game, but shut it off right afterwards because the kids came home.  Not a big deal I thought, the last section of the fight was really easy.  However when I restarted I start outside the joker house, allowed to run around the island.  No chance to redo the fight and see the video!  WTF!  Am I just SOL unless I head to Youtube?'

What I find funny about the Nixon/Kennedy story is that Obama's plan is probably more conservative than Nixon's plan was back then. 

Quote
If anything, the Obama plan is more conservative. Nixon would have mandated that all employers offer coverage to their employees, while creating a subsidized government insurance program for all Americans that employer coverage did not reach.

When this new generation of conservatives start complaining about how far to the right this country has gone I just shake my head at how terrible public schools must be because those conservatives don't know shit.

final battle question

Spoiler for Hiden:
so it is just a brawl?  Really?  After all that cool stuff with explosive gel, detective mode, batclaws, and stuff the end is just a straight brawl? 
Any tips?  It is just kicking me.  I am sure I just need to be better at avoiding but I have tried 4-5 times and the best I have gotten is one titan down before I die. 


that's not the final battle.  there's a bit more.

Having read gamefaqs it is not the final battle but there is no more exploration, new gadgets, etc. at this point.  To me it feels like a 3 part battle with small cut scenes between rounds.

Wow, double wow.  I loved the first one and was a bit disappointed that #2 was going to be a PSP game because of the loss of visual quality but it looks like the nailed it.
