Is the guide the Collector's Edition or regular?

Collector's Edition.

$35 shipped for PoP

(SOLD) $45 shipped for Fallout 3 with the Prima strategy guide - $35 without.  The strategy guide is pretty incredible though.

Great games hope someone else can enjoy them as much as I did.

PM me if your interested.

I can't wait for this to come out!  So that people can shut up about it!  Jesus, every time the director farts there are news stories on blogs, posts in forums, etc.  Is this the only comic book movie coming out this decade?  Why is every detail about any part of it news?

As disappointing as the move is, it does make a lot of sense from the marketing angle- better to focus in the advertising in one two-three month period for all platforms instead of doing it now then turning around and doing it again at the end of the year.

But, yeah, I can't help but think this pretty much nixes any chance of ME2 hitting this holiday season.

Ok but if the shoe was reversed would they hold the console version while they finished up the pc one? 

No, of course not. 

Unfortunately this is the real world and consoles sell more.  That is just a fact.  EA wants to, heck needs to make money so they have to do what is going to make them the most money.

I may have to go with the board version.  She often talks about how we should do more together and I bet she wouldn't count sitting in front of the TV, no matter what we were playing together.

Anyone selling their physical copy now that they are hooked on the the Xbox version?

I would like to play this with the wife so I was thinking of getting the board game but I noticed that the XBL version allowed for " Local Multiplayer 1-4" and it is only 800 points which is cheaper than the actual board game.  However my wife is not much of a video gamer.  I think it might be hard to get her interested in staring at the TV screen.

How is the local multiplayer?  Is it worth getting the real board game for the tactile feel of the board, cards, etc.?


If you're primarily going to be playing local multiplayer with someone who's not particularly into console gaming, definitely get the real version of the game unless the $10 difference will be rough on your budget.  Of course, if the hard times are hitting you that bad you're probably better off making the edible version so that it'll provide more nutrition:


Anyway, the real version is really nice.  There's no board, since you build the map by placing tiles, but the tiles are nice thick cardstock and the follower pieces are made of wood.

That would be great!  I get her hooked on the game, she balloons up and then blames me for making her fat!  I have been married long enough to see that trap coming.  smile

I'm really thinking about doing this, but I loathe installing stuff...after 30 years of working on pc's I've had enough.

Quote
The Windows 7 Beta will stop working on August 1, 2009. To continue using your PC, please be prepared to reinstall a prior version of Windows or a subsequent release of Windows 7 before the expiration date. We recommend doing a custom (clean) installation.

So I would do it once, but not if I have to go back to Vista in August. What's the likelihood of there being a "subsequent release of Windows 7 before the expiration date"? Anyone have any ideas? I will buy W7 when it's released.

I would guess there is a 60-70% chance of a subsequent release.  There are a lot of people using Win7 beta so there will be more pressure than normal on MS to let people keep using it. 

I went ahead and did replaced my Vista install with Win7 and I love it.  Reinstalling the OS every six months doesn't bother me that much anyway.  I have finally given in to the MS way and store all my files in "My Documents" so I just need to move that folder over to a second HD, reinstall and move files back.  Sure I have to reinstall programs but that is pretty painless as long as I have my files.


3184  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fallout 3 -- DL content on: January 27, 2009, 06:33:29 PM
It also sends a message really.  It tells people that the PS3 version isn't as important/good/profitable.  Maybe it was MS money (although that wouldn't explain the PC update) maybe not but the message is pretty strong - if you don't have to, don't play it on the PS3. 


3185  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: XBox 360 Conundrum... on: January 26, 2009, 10:21:45 PM
Keep it.  Your unit will probably run for years.  MS also has been fixing the RRoD for free so what is the real risk, except being without the console for a few weeks?

In the "Favorite Games" thread, I see Knights Of The Old Republic an awful lot.  I'll be honest, I couldn't get into it at all.  I played for about four hours, expecting something to click, and nothing ever did.  What am I missing?

Some games just don't click for some people.  I thought the game was great fun to play.  I found the combat great fun, the story compelling, the graphics good, and the voice acting great. 

I don't think there is anything you are missing, it just doesn't click for you.

To each their own. 

I hated the GBA game.  It was complicated just for the sake of being complicated.  Many people like that challenge but I am not one of those.  I found the complexity of the game not so much overwhelming as unimportant.  It very much felt tacked on to make the game more complicated. 

I was also one of those people who hated all the leveling up inside items with the crazy geo thingies in Disgea too though.

Legend is probably the closest to Uncharted and PoP. 

I'm assuming that you are referring to the latest PoP?  Did you play the three PoP games from last generation?  All are worth playing if you like this kind of gameplay (though SoT is the only one that is backwards compatible for the 360). 

I played them a bit but I tend to suck at these types of games and got frustrated easily.

I will see what I like.  I don't always like these types of games but I loved Uncharted and am loving Prince of Persia so I hope one of these three will satisfy my itch for more of that type of gameplay.  I just need to finish Prince of Persia!

Tiger Woods.....golf

3rd-ed. 

Since we can't take a whole team by the rules of the OP I can't pick people like Jordan, Pele, or OJ.  They were certainly great but they also had teams which worked with them and while they may have been the stars they still need a team.

Tiger Woods however is independent.  What he does he does completely on his own.  And while it may not be physically as demanding as pro football or soccer, golf is freaking hard to be consistent at.  90% of us could win one hole but to consistently do it is totally different.

1.  Legends
2.  Anniversary
3.  Underworld

1&2 can be swapped (and Anniversary comes first chronologically) but I think that order works best in terms of developing gameplay. 

Done!
