So this isn't just a kids puzzler? I'll pick this up at the store today.

Leslie Neilsen is getting old. It would be better seeing him as Chief and having new people run missions.

That's not a bad idea, but who? Steve Carell?

Wow, there's a whole lot of nothing on that list. My daughter will probably ask for Monsters Vs. Aliens but so many of those licensed games are such garbage that it's just not worth it.

I've been a fan since Master of Puppets so this is a no brainer for me. Is this being released with a new guitar bundle too or just with the solo game and the full kit sets?

Hold on, I'm a bit confused:

Is this an expansion pack for owners of the first game?  If so, it is going to have to offer quite a bit of new features to be worth the price tag ($20) -- what I read in the press release didn't sound like it had hardly any new features.

Good question. I just paid $20 for this not too long ago, will I have to shell out more?

A whole lot of nothing unless Gradius ReBirth turns out to be anything of note.

Thanks for the mass of details, Lockdown. I've been watching this one for a bit (having similar interests as you do) but haven't been brave enough to try it myself. Your write up is encouraging and has elevated the titles farther up my wish list.

Yes, otherwise that just wouldn't work for you. It would mean that, if you ever wanted to leave your house, you'd have to, you know, come out of the closet.

I want Empire Total War but it doesn't make sense to pick it up at fullprice with my current schedule. I'll probably pick it up when it hits the $25-30 range.

Hey, Circuit City is now taking 30% off all PC software, including games, as part of their liquidation stuff.

So I went ahead and picked this up for $35 (instead of $49.99) today. I probably won't play it for a bit but I did want to enlist at some point.  icon_smile I think it was the only copy at the CC I went to.

Hold the phone... is that deal valid online? The only reason I haven't picked this game up yet is because I've been waiting for a sale price to justify my purchase.
54  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (2/9) on: February 09, 2009, 02:36:31 PM
Nothing again. LocoRoco 2 is a rental and I already own all of the GalCiv2 titles. These last couple of months have finally allowed me to start making a dent in my backlog library though. Woot!

I've purchased so many XBLA titles. Off the top of my head I would recommend Castle Crashers, Geometry Wars 2, Worms, Pinball FX, Bomberman, and Puzzle Quest.

This game continues to frustrate me. Many times I can't shake the feeling that the Be A Pro Mode is the only reason I play it (most people here know I prefer the 2K games). Does the patch improve the SP portion of this?

Yes the patch definitely improved the SP, especially your defence. It also elminated the cheap 1 timers that only the AI could pull off.

I still feel very limited as to what I can do on defense via the game controls (and I always focus more on playing defense, and enjoying it, than scoring goals). I played a SP game last night and, noting an improvement, still feel disappointed in the game. I'm considering selling it but the Be A Pro does still hold some interest.

EDIT: Can you guys tell me if I'm just missing something with the controls on defense? It only feels like I can attempt an ineffective or too effective (read: tripping penalty) poke check, lift the stick (more penalties), or cross-check like a goon. Are there any nuances to these controls or does the game take that out of my hands?

Update: After seeing some post holiday ads this week she has decided to drop the price to $80 total for both chips.
61  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Anyone else playing Sacred 2? on: December 29, 2008, 04:26:02 AM
Thanks for the feedback, all! I will pick this one up as soon as it is on sale for more than a $5 savings.
62  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Anyone else playing Sacred 2? on: December 27, 2008, 03:55:28 PM
What's the verdict on the method or purchase for this? Impulse or Steam?
63  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / FS: Two (2) brand new 2 GB DDR2 Notebook RAM chips - $80 on: December 26, 2008, 10:43:37 PM
For Sale:

Two (2), 2 GB DDR2 Notebook RAM chips. Kingston, PC2-5300, 533 MHz/667 MHz.

My girlfriend bought the chips this past weekend for her DELL laptop, opened them to install, and then found them to be the wrong type. We still have the packaging, inserts, etc. We are asking $80 total for the chips. Please drop me an IM if you're interested.

Thanks for reading!

I wasn't planning on buying anything for myself this week until we hit Circuit City's going-out-of-business sale yesterday. They are nearly picked clean but I was happy to find one final copy of King's Bounty and Sword & The Stars for $7.50 each. Couldn't pass those up.

Nifty utility! They seem to have done a nice job with it so far. Any word on when the online gaming tables will be ready for prime time?
66  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Revisiting: Space Rangers 2 on: December 16, 2008, 01:53:56 PM
I took advantage of the online sale and picked this up over the weekend. $4 was simply too good to pass up. Now I just have to make time to play the darn thing.

What is the 4E experience level required for this campaign? I've yet to play a 4E session yet but might be interested in joining if that was a possibility.

I still prefer the gameplay of 2K8 over this one but the gameplay of this is improved enough for me to manage it. The Be A Pro mode is what has me interest. I don't think I would be nearly as interested without it.

Nothing this week (woot!). I found Civ IV: Colonization this week for $10 used (mint) so that was an unexpected pickup that should keep me busy for a bit.

After us playing Smash Bros. Brawl Saturday night (which was my first real time I've spent with it since my purchase aside from 20 mins here and there) I'm anxious to really dive into it. That will feel like a brand new purchase too!

Tilted Mill's Hinterland is out for the PC this week (Steam). No exact date given, just early this week.

That's THIS week? Ok then, there's something to add to my list for the week.
78  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Lego Batman on: September 29, 2008, 02:54:16 PM
I really enjoyed playing through LEGO SW by myself and especially with my daughter but I haven't played it in a long time. As much as I loved Indy when I was a teen, I rented that one upon release and didn't quite get as much out of it as I expected (the 30 minute levels played a part in that). However, being such a huge fan of Batman for the past 25 years I am more than happy to purchase LEGO Batman and play through it even if only to see the Gotham content (though I'd welcome gameplay differences/advances from the previous LEGO games).

I'm happy these games are available but I can certainly see where they will be played out if each release isn't at least somewhat different from the previous.
79  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (9/29) on: September 29, 2008, 02:43:24 PM
Nothing. Rock Band 2 and LEGO Batman this last weekend (though I know those were released two weeks ago). I'm still waiting for the DRM issue with Spore to be resolved so I can pick that one up someday.
80  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Guitar Hero: World Tour Song List on: September 16, 2008, 05:41:49 PM
I still prefer the RB2 song list over this one but there are enough here for me to at least rent it with the possibility of a bargain purchase later on (depending upon how well the older instruments work with it and if they've changed their note pattern philosophy from GH3).
