And oddly enough I just got the automated call from Gamestop saying that DS:JA will be in tomorrow afternoon. Surprise, but a pleasant one.

Jagged Alliance DS now showing on the Gamestop page as shipping 5/26  icon_frown. Probably no surprise there, reflecting the absolute lack of gaming web site buzz about it.

Well, no worry, I've got a busy next few days and then Fuel arrives on Tuesday or Wednesday.

There was some other strategy game similar to JA released a week before JD:DS, it looked better, no idea if it played better.  Sadly I'll have to dig up the title.

There was?  icon_confused Curious what you dig up.

More than likely in on JA:DS as well.

Yeah I'd like to hear about this as well.

I got myself warmed up for JA:DS by re-installing Jagged Alliance 2 on my PC. I had burned to DVD the as-installed game folder which I had updated with the current 1.12 and the fan built 1.13 patch, plus the Hi-Res mod. Locked up my computer on first try  disgust but worked fine after the reboot. Thank goodness I had burned it to DVD, I don't know that I would have had the energy to install the game from the original disk and then go through all the patching and tweaking.

Jagged Alliance for the DS, someone has to do it.

Late to the dance, but since I inherited a free DS a while ago I  finally picked up this game yesterday. Turns out it's a decent game to play while riding the exercise bike  icon_biggrin. I had put off getting it because it sounded a bit too frantic, but so far it's been fun. It's my first DS game so I'm still clumsy on the controls, but I'm getting there.

there's a new patch that's supposed to fix the save corruption problem.

Sadly it's pretty much too little, too late for a lot of folks who won't bother.

I finished the game, or rather I stopped playing during the finale sequence:
Spoiler for Hiden:
In one of the last missions, you go to a landing zone to get a dropped briefcase. The moment you pick it up, scores of enemies spawn all around you. That's bad enough. But I couldn't kill them! Not on hardcore. So I changed the difficulty to "easy", but they were still almost impossible to kill and I'd get nailed every time. I finally went to the guide which noted that in this mission the bad guys are significantly harder to kill than elsewhere in the game  icon_mad. I decided enough was enough, even though I was probably one or two missions from completing the game.

Quote
Perhaps the second-most interesting tweak is the ability to play ranked matches on user-made maps. "You should already find a selection of those maps thanks to some of our active community members," the team said.

I never have gotten into multiplayer, it just didn't seem to appeal to me. Maybe this change will motivate me to try again.

Quote
Meanwhile, the new patch also fixes a few random bugs in single-player and multiplayer, and introduces a new "hardcore" damage model where all weapons do "much more damage".

Hmm, a damage model that increases vulnerability? This might be worth checking out if it makes hardcore mode more like CoD:WaW hardcore. Mind you, it might make it impossible for me to get too far into the game, but it does have an appeal if it applies equally to the AI characters. In the present game they would go down with a single sniper shot (mostly), but often I could put a half clip from an assault rifle into them and they'd just stagger around and then resume firing. I wouldn't mind my character in the game being more sensitive to damage as long as the AI is equally as vulnerable.

UPDATE: Here's the text of the update info, from the Far Cry 2 forum:
Quote

Gamestop shows shipping 5/19, a week from now.

I so hope they didn't screw this game up by porting it to the DS. There haven't been any reviews or even decent previews released, which keeps me from considering a pre-order.

2009  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Far Cry 2 on: May 05, 2009, 01:03:41 AM
Completed several more campaign missions and a "bar" mission plus a couple of assassinations and am now up to 73%. The game has drawn me back in again  icon_cool. I did get killed about four times in the past four hours, but each time my "buddy" saved me. It's a great design feature, rewarding me for helping the buddies earlier on.

At first I didn't like the save house design decision, instead of "save anywhere". But now I've gotten to appreciate how it influences my game play. I am more cautious and plan more. Yet it's just as enjoyable as playing Fallout 3 and saving all the time.

For my last half-hour of play I cut loose and just became the terror of the savanna. I selected my all explosives load out and blew up everything in sight. Much fun. I now have 39 hours in on the game.

Sheesh, Jagged Alliance for the DS? I inherited my wife's DS but haven't gotten anything for it, although I was tempted by Chinatown Wars. If this Jagged Alliance is decent it might be what it takes to get me to fire it up. Gamestop shows shipping date as May 19th. Anywhere I can get it tomorrow?
2011  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty W@W map pack 2 this June on: May 04, 2009, 04:46:12 PM
I'll disagree, I think the first map pack is pretty decent. Kneedeep is very good, the night map is not too bad, and the subway map is interesting, although I know a lot of folks hate it.

As always, I'm only play Hardcore Team Deathmatch, and since the removal of the tanks I've grown to like the four tank-less "tank" maps. I played for awhile on Saturday and we ended up on all four. None were voted down and no one complained when we started each time. I think folks just adapt to them. As long as a map is big enough* it's can be enjoyed. Nightfire is a bit on the small side, but ok. Bog comes to mind as a map that's just too damn small to enjoy.

*big enough can be accomplished not only by dimensions, but also by lots of buildings, walls, and other impediment to sight lines.

Count me among those that have fallen victim to the Far Cry 2 bug. 62% complex too, dammit.

After being pissed at the game for a couple of weeks, I decided I was punishing myself for the developer's screw up. I went back to a save before the "blue square" Crash site mission was accepted. I did the alternate "red circle" default mission and got past the anomaly point. I'm at 68% complete, but as should be obvious now, the save percent is NOT the completion of the game, it's more like milestone points the developer built into the game. The % complete seems to only increment after certain campaign missions.

I really do enjoy this game, although I have to take a break occasionally because it is pretty intense. Shame that they haven't fixed the save game screw up.

I just started playing this last week, kind of off to a rough start. I'm a bit clueless as to where I'm supposed to be going upon exiting the vault. I cleared the nearby school with no particular objective, then I found a kid whose town was overrun by fireants who kick my ass. Not really getting anywhere it seems like.
Don't worry about nothing being guided on rails. That threw me off at first as well. The thing to do is just go explore. You will be given information as you go along regarding the main quest, but it's just as important to do side quests to build up your inventory and your skills. It sounds weird, but the thing to do is put yourself into the game. Decide what you want to do based on interest or survival instinct, not on how you think the game designers want you to move next.

I couldn't find the proper old thread, so I'm starting a new one. According to a "Major's Minute" on XBL, you can download (be gifted, actually) a free Major Nelson signature edition Saleen Mustang S281E by going to this blog on the Forza Motorsport site and posting using your XBL id. I haven't gotten my car yet, but I've posted so hopefully that means I'm in line.

I find it very difficult to play this game as a good character.  So many of the npcs just "beg" to be punished.
Ah, good timing for my comment. Yesterday I played through the "Sister Hammer" quest and then went back to town and did some buying and impressing the citizens and... well, I was starting to get bored.

Then I got notification that my wife was *still* trying to divorce me. I had quit paying her support when I realized what a drag she was going to be to my career and she had been threatening divorce for quite a while. So I warped to the gypsy camp and as I arrived at the entrance she was walking out, saying something about never seeing me again. I realized she still had my ring and so I shot her. Didn't get the ring back, but did get the sheriff and his boys after me. So I killed them. And then everyone in the camp (except the kids, natch). And then when I left the camp I killed everyone I could find on the gypsy camp map.

I went back to Bowerstone and while I was completely evil, everyone still oo'ed and ah'ed over me, especially when I farted  Roll Eyes. Somehow I don't think this is how things should be.

Not sure if you meant this or not, but . . .

Spoiler for Hiden:
Dogmeat isn't in the vault where you start.  He's available at a different location, one that is not part of the main quest or any of the named side quests.

Well, that's good to know!

Sweet, I am going on vacation next week and this will be something nice to have when I get back. I stopped reading the article at the point where they mentioned spoilers, so as to allow myself to be surprised.

I have avoided doing "The Pitt" DLC since I'm at level nineteen, but maybe I'll jump into it to get it out of the way.

I'm still on my first playthrough, btw. Are there other folks still working their first F3 life? One thing I didn't do this time was leave the vault with the dog. I guess I'd have to play at least one more time to see what all the deal is with Dogmeat.

Hey! Something happened to the safe houses on the southern map!

Spoiler for Hiden:
I just arrived at a couple of them I previously unlocked. They were still unlocked, but they had guards again! Since they weren't relocked, I'm assuming this isn't a bug but a feature to make it that much harder. I'm playing Hardcore difficulty, does that change anything? I guess I don't mind, it's part of the challenge. I had been taking safe houses for granted.

Turns out the two safe houses I found that re-acquired guards were the only two. I think one is because of it's location. Anyway, no big deal.

I've now gotten in about 33 hours of gameplay on Far Cry 2. Twenty out of thirty-three main missions complete with roughly the same ratio of side quest missions. Oddly enough even though I'm playing Hardcore difficulty I haven't died in quite a while; the three times I should have died recently my "buddy" came in to save me. It's an effective game device; I wouldn't have the buddy unless I've saved him or her after doing a mission for them.

I'm thinking this game is reflecting my personality perhaps a big more than I might feel comfortable explaining to my non-gaming acquaintances. I'm a loner, moving at my own pace. I do the missions I want, go where I want, explore at my own discretion. I enjoy the solitude, the grand vistas, but also driving like a maniac across the countryside. Oh, and gunning down practically everyone I see.

I gave up playing the game this weekend. Still hadn't found my Bruiser. Constantly responding to attacks on my rackets, wish I could just automate sending a "fire brigade" of goons to deal with each attack. The deal breaker was one of those "favor" missions where I was supposed to go whack a guy who from what I could tell on the 3D map was on top of a hotel. I went to the location, wandered around and around, but couldn't find a way into the hotel or up the outside. Finally got tired of all these idiot little bugs.
2032  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Far Cry 2 on: April 13, 2009, 10:26:28 AM
I got in a few more hours this weekend on the game, up to 52% complete. The southern map continues to impress me. It is significantly more difficulty than the northern, first map. There's one gun shop, a favorite place to stop, save and reload, that turns out to be right on a patrol route. Better watch your step when you wander around!

The same is also true for at least one safe house. Happily you can hear the patrol coming, but you'd better have planned your hiding spots in advance.

Also ramping up the difficulty is the lack of reloads at most safe houses. To compensate for that some safe houses don't require an initial capturing. However, for those that do, you need to think about your ammo levels.

The missions have been more complex and diverse than on the northern map. At least one (so far) could be completed without firing a shot, if you are stealthy enough. None have been overly difficult, but you can't win by simple run and gun tactics.

And there are many graphical differences on the southern map. Huts are different, the terrain is more extreme, and I think there even might be more animals.

Glad I went back and tried the game again.
2033  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The GodFather 2 Impression on: April 09, 2009, 10:17:22 PM
I've now gotten in about eight hours and have reached one of those #%%$%^%% situations.

I was notified that I had an open slot for a made man. I already had a medic, demo man, arsonist, and my best man is both a safecracker and engineer. So I was looking for a Bruiser. I remember seeing one early on, but couldn't remember where. So I started visiting my rackets and compounds. ALL OF THEM. And I couldn't find a Bruiser type. It's really irritating that I personally have to visit each location. I'm a big admirer of Sid Meiers and one of his tenets is that you should provide players with interesting decisions. There's nothing interesting about having to go from place to place to place. Am I missing some trick or overlay? There damn well should be one if there's not.

Otherwise the game is just ok. After eight hours I'm starting to burn out on the repetition. There are mainline missions that are interesting, but not interesting enough to compensate for the above dumbness.
2034  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The GodFather 2 Impression on: April 09, 2009, 04:09:28 AM
I've got five hours in and have been in Miami a while, and even when back to NYC to take care of some business  slywink. While the cities might seem smaller, there are a lot of locations to bomb, attack, defend and visit to rob, sabotage or kill or rough up someone.

I think the graphics are worse than GF1, but then I played that on the PC. But graphics don't make the game and here they are just different, they don't degrade the gameplay.

I got tired in GF1 (but still completed the game) of the repetitious feel of my activities. At least in GF2 I can send my boys to do some of the grunt work.

I'm not sure that this is a 5/10 game, but I think that maybe it's a 7/10. Some parts are fun, but it's going to get a little dull after a few hours. It's really more like a business sim with gangsters. You get monopolies, you force the competitor's individual firms out of business, then you weaken him before going for the kill. This isn't GTA with a string of missions, it's more free form.

I think the biggest problem people will have is that after a while you just seem to be going through the motions of taking over businesses and attacking your opponent's places and people. It's like a WoW grind; eventually you will level up, but it's just a lot of work till then. That's why I think the Don's View and sending out your henchmen to do the dirty work makes sense, it keeps you from spending a lot of time doing the same tasks yourself.

Question, where do I get ammo for my tommy gun in New York? I run out all the time and I haven't seen an AmmuNation store anywhere  slywink

There are no ammo stores.  It is all stored for free in your safe house, scavenged from those who were trying to kill you, or some of the businesses will have a weapons cache in them.

Yup, as I completed missions there are more weapons available. I've now completed the New York portion, took 3:41. Actually had more fun with it this afternoon than I thought I would. There are some bugs; I find people with the key over their heads from whom I get missions which unlock the kill method of an enemy, but after doing their job I get a message about the contract being unable to be fulfilled. That's understandable, I had already unlocked all the kill methods, but it was odd that the key symbol kept showing up. Then there is the bug where I can get cash missions to rob a safe, except that I've already robbed that safe and so I can't fulfill the mission. Maybe this all works better in Miami.

Also I was never able to kill one of the henchmen...
Spoiler for Hiden:
The kill method was to use a pistol, but every time I used a pistol the guy would just go back to recovering, not permanently dead. Maybe it's because I'm supposed to "execute" him with the pistol, but I couldn't figure out how to do that.

Still, it was lots of fun and there was plenty to do. And once I figured out how to use my weapons better I did darn good in all my attacks.

I only got in about three hours, but while I'm not turned off by the game, it doesn't feel that much like *fun*. The mainline missions haven't been as entertaining as say the ones in Saints Row 2. However, it's early in the game and I haven't even gotten to Miami, so maybe things will pick up.
2038  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Far Cry 2 on: April 08, 2009, 06:29:40 PM
I noticed that one of the comments to a Kotaku article about this subject came from someone who was able to complete the game in spite of a problem. The game would freeze up if he took a certainly path to an objective, so as he said, "I took the long way around" and was able to complete the mission and the game. So maybe there's hope.

I got past the 27% bug I guess, I'm now at about 47%. Damn, it might be awhile before I get to 62%. Well, I'm enjoying the game and have been keeping the past six saves, maybe I'll double that. With any luck the update will arrive before the dreaded 62%.
