Just typed up a whole lot of impressions...and promptly erased them by accident.  Damn compatibility view mode.   mad

Anyway, to sum it up after 2 hours of play:

It's The Hulk Ultimate Destruction and Spiderman 2/3/Web of Shadows.  If you liked those games, you'll love this one.

The powers are great and varied.  The events give out EP to buy upgrades and powers, so they're useful. 

Missions are multiple part.

I thought the game was going to be easy at first...until it stopped being easy.  Having claw hands and superstrength means diddly squat to a rocket launcher.

I think the current ratio of vehicles is 1200 cab drivers to 5 non cab drivers in the game city.  You think I'm kidding?  Just look around.  I stopped in a busy intersection and counted 17 cabs and 1 mini van at one point.

64 bit Vista here.  No problems at all after 12 hours or so of playtime.

Did anyone get the add-on?  200 points for a pack mule or something I think.  Is it worth it?

I did, and its pretty nice - lets you use the heros chest whenever you've got a ton of things - I like it!

is it basically the imp preorder from gamestop?

Waterworld is mediocre overall, but I always thought Dennis Hopper did an excellent job as the villain. 

Dennis Hopper plays Dennis Hopper in every movie he makes.  While sitting on his deluxe-o throne on that friggin' waterboat of his, I fully expected him to yell out ""Heineken? F*#k that shit! Pabst Blue Ribbon!"" at least once...

day 1:  go to theater, talk to people.  come home, try to cook dinner.  start fire.  female fireman shows up.  hit on her.  try to smooch her, she runs off.  go to bed.  wake up next morning, fix breakfast, then clog toilet.

yep...this is pretty much playing out the way it does in real life.

I don't get this line of argument against SBC. There's a long tradition of humor that's based on humilliating or embarrasing hapless people. I don't think it's wrong. SBC does it in such a smart, confrontational way. Most of the people in 'Borat' really deserved to have their chains yanked. 

Which is fine, nobody is saying you can't do it.  But not everyone enjoys that kind of humor, just like not everyone enjoys Eddie Murphy or Katt Williams or any other comedian you could name.  I'm sure part of it is based on life experiences. 



an intelligent, non insulting reply that i approve of.   thumbsup

Hey Arclight, I commend your bravery in coming into this thread asking questions about how to play the game.  Because, y'know, twelve-year-old girls play and master these games. slywink

Its not that I don't know how to play the game its just that I can't "find" the game. Having a bit of a hard time finding the fun...For all the success of this franchise I'm a bit baffled still as to what the hook is..

No worries. My expectations aren't very high.

12 year old girls can also out skip me, but that never worried me either.........

it would if those little bastards were skip-chasing you!

Personally I'm not a big fan of SBC, for the same reasons as Hepcats friend.  It strikes me as high school behavior, where everyone laughs but the kid that's the butt of the joke.  And those kids don't usually look back on that as a humorous experience if they feel like they were humiliated.  Not all of SBC's stuff crosses that line, but some of it does. 

but those of us doing the humiliating look back on those moments and laugh our asses off...then we have a diet coke and watch 24.

To each his own. I've a friend who walked out of the new Star Trek. He was incensed over it. He said the moment they introduced Winona Ryder as Spock's mom, he just got up and left.  icon_lol

The only movie I walked out of was 'The Hours'. That long-suffering lesbian movie really drove me up the f'ng wall!

Hepcat, how old are you that you actually watched 'Caligula' while it was in theaters?  icon_lol

It was at the student center of my college when I was a junior as part of some midnight movie festival.  not first run, for god's sake!  bad played about 3 weeks later as part of that same festival.  so i had both of my "walking out of a movie" experiences pretty close together.  now, i'm old enough to just go "well, this sucks.  nap time." and i'm out like a light until an usher knocks over my walker while cleaning up.

 icon_lol  Yeah, this was a bit over the top.  While I didn't really like the film, I reserve that level of hatred for truly offensive films.  The only movies I've walked out of were Caligula (I was on a date and thought people were kidding when they said it had hardcore sex scenes inserted into the story) and Andy Warhol's Bad (baby scene...that's all I'm going to say as I get sick just remembering it).

My only complaint is that I was hoping the first one would continue adding campaigns.  If they're jumping into a sequel this quickly, I doubt we'll see any new story content for the first game.  If they continue this pace, then the sequel will have that issue as well.

I'm in the market for a new one myself.  I got a Fossil one several years ago that I love, but it's getting pretty dingy and it's time to update.  Sadly they don't make the one I got anymore, and their designs are much more plain than they used to be, or I would likely just buy it again.

Anyway, go for broke with Burberry!  I am lust with this bag -

Brad Pitt carries one.  Only $900 at your local Nordstrom! icon_eek

Looks Scottish to me. I bet i could get one in our clan's tartan colors.

Every time I see someone mention "their clan colors" i have to chuckle.  A friend of mine worked for a company that supposedly supplied folks with scotch/irish and english ancestral history, with tartan colors being the most requested items.  he then showed me how they basically chose the colors at random from a book, then supplied these folks with a "clan history" that was just a template sheet that they used Microsoft Word's find and replace function to fill in.  icon_lol

I went cheap and got one of these in olive green. It's durable but nothing fancy. Works for what I need.

I get crap for using it from coworkers which I don't get. Its ok to use a back pack but not a messenger bag?

I have one very similar to that.  However, after I received it I realized it has red stars on the strap.  Now everyone thinks I'm a supporter of the Red Army.   icon_confused

I have a friend who I thought had similar taste in comedy.  Recently I brought up Bruno and how I thought the trailer for the new movie looked funny.  There was a pause and then he mentioned that he hated Cohen because he didn't like comedy that relied on humiliating people.  While I can understand that sentiment, I have to say that a large part of comedy consists of "getting one over" on someone.  In essence, all comedy is cruel in some parts.  As Mel Brooks once said,

Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you walk into an open sewer and die.

I picked up the rulebook for Secrets of the Third Reich out of curiosity.  While the book is full of really awful artwork and more than a few misspellings, I really dig the setting.  It's much weirder then AE-WW2.  I see it more as a complement to AE-WW2 in my collection than a competitor.  Both rules sets are pretty easy to learn and the miniatures are interchangeable, for the most part.  I think I prefer the setting and tone of SoTR, though.

Hmmm...FFvTR works perfectly under vista 64, but FF is a bit wonky.  had to use software sound plus my characters don't seem to want to follow my orders all the time. 

Otherwise, the game holds up relatively well.  I think that has more to do with the art style they use.  I have to say, I'd forgotten how much fun this series was.  I really wish they'd go back and do another in the line!
