And when I finally took out the ambushing party (I thought I was supposed to be the ambushing party, not the other way around) I was then run down by a jeep that came out of nowhere behind me. 

That's two things I don't like about this game.  I was stalking a safehouse once and I sniped one of the guards from miles away.  The others starting running about but clearly didn't have a clue where I was.  I thought I had plenty of time to shift position and carefully plan the next shot, when suddenly a jeep came out of nowhere behind me.  I just had enough time to turn around and see it before it hit me and I was dead...

...which brings me to the second thing I hate.  Twenty second bloody loading times every time you die.  This is one game I wish I'd played on the PC instead of a console.

Hmm, I guess those are some issues that don't bother me. Regarding the latter, I don't die very often, so the loading time isn't a problem. Not bragging, just I try to avoid dying. If you are dying enough that load times are an issue, you might want to re-evaluate your approach.

Regarding the former, I figure that it's just a way in which it's dangerous out there. Enemy vehicles will come up the approach roads, so I stay clear of them. And also I figure that once the enemy is alerted, they are calling on the radio for backup, so it's only a matter of time before the cavalry shows up.

I like the visuals and I can see the game's potential, but I am also seeing what many have said about the game starting rather slowly... 
Yes, the early missions aren't all that interesting. However, it's a good time to learn what you can and can't get away with in the game.

Quote from: PeteRock on April 07, 2009, 04:12:16 PM

Here's a question about night and day.  How do you check at any given moment what time it is?  Sometimes I'd like to know how long I have to wait for nightfall, or if it's early morning, mid afternooon, or near dusk, but it seems the only way I can check the time is when I rest in a safehouse and the watch appears.  I also don't think the watch is very intuitive.  When it comes up, does it show what time it is at that moment, does it show a default number of hours later as part of the saving system (similar to the wait feature in Oblivion, which seemed to default to a certain number of hours)?  Also, when it's 6:45 how can I tell if it is AM or PM?  I'm struggling with figuring out what the hell time it is. 
I don't know of any other way to see the watch other than next to a bed. It shows the current time on the face and outer ring adjustment lets you select the number of hours you wish to rest. The default rest time is one hour. You can turn it back that hour and so not rest at all, or turn it forward to get a full twelve hours of rest. As to whether it's AM or PM, you just have to go by the outside conditions. Sunset isn't till later in the evening and it starts getting light about 6am.

Quote from: PeteRock on April 07, 2009, 04:12:16 PM

Is it always best to wait until nightfall to complete a mission?  Are guards much less likely to see you in the brush after dark?  I've found that during the day, if I run into the bushes and break lines of sight they still know exactly where I am.  I'm hoping that when the sun goes down the advantage goes to me for a change. 
From the guide and what I've read, plus personal observations in-game, night time is the right time  slywink. Guards not only can't see you as well, they also tend to hang around near their fire rather than wandering around.

That being said, the daytime is fun because the scenery is great to look at. Also you can spot the enemy from farther away, so if you wish to trek cross country it's a lot safer. And remember to keep your GPS on, so you can look for diamonds.

Quote from: PeteRock on April 07, 2009, 04:12:16 PM

I feel like I'm still going through the learning stages at the moment, but hopefully after I get a few missions under my belt and things pick up I'll get exposed to more of the game's depth.  Right now it has been a struggled just figuring out what is going on, what I'm supposed to be doing, or even what time it is. 
It does get better, my gameplay over the past four days can attest to that. The missions that start off the southern half of the map are more interesting and varied. Also, and it's not a spoiler since the little paper map shows this, the southern half includes a large lake which nicely alters the terrain.

Far Cry 2 is one of those games that become more enjoyable if you role play a bit, rather than sticking to the missions one after another. I made a specific effort to wander through passes and valleys that weren't on the line between quest points. I also tried to attack every checkpoint that was reasonably near my route of travel. They are laid out in many different ways so no single method of approach works for all. Also be sure to try out all the different weapons you can. You don't always have to buy them, sometimes they get left in your safe house, sometimes you can pick them up from a dead soldier. Between defeating check points, unlocking safe houses and locating the diamond suitcases you'll get to cover pretty much every bit of the terrain.
2003  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (4/6) on: April 06, 2009, 11:27:32 PM
Godfather II for sure.
2004  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Far Cry 2 on: April 06, 2009, 11:24:56 PM
Wow you weren't kidding about the southern half being tougher. It seems like the first couple of safe houses had extra guards or jeep patrols. And I got slammed from one mission to the next to the next. I did step the difficulty down from Hardcore to Normal.

And then there was fun threesome of missions:

First the barge escort mission
Spoiler for Hiden:
I replayed this over and over until I got smart and figured out that the biggest threat was the clown with the RPG across the water and so I concentrated on using the Carl Gustav on him. Plus I was running like a manic from one fixed gun to another taking out enemy boats. A mission so very different from any in the northern half.

And then the guy sends me to talk to the doc in the clinic. How dangerous can that be?
Spoiler for Hiden:
And of course hell breaks loose outside. So I grab a syringe, save the game and head to the front door. No, Nurse Ratchet says, go out the back. So I do that, over and over. And over and over. Getting killed over and over. So finally I decide to ignore the nurse and run out the front. Neither looking left nor right, I blast across the street, through an alley, over a fence, and damn, no more soldiers. I grab a Jeep and head outta town.

Now my friend the barge captain needs my help again, over at the marina.
Spoiler for Hiden:
Of course it's way over on the other side of the lake. I tried driving around the lake and die a couple of times. So that's not a really good option. So I drive down the coast and grab a boat and head across the water. And I run into every damn enemy boat out there. I manage to outrun all of them, get to the marina, but everyone shoots at me and I die. Again.

OK, now I'm pissed. So when I once again reload the save mission which has me driving south from the town, I pause and think. And then it occurs to me that there's a bus stop at the town, and a bus stop near the marina. OK, not riding in guns blazing, but it's good for the planet! So I ride the bus over to the marina and get out and walk over to a cliff overlooking the marina, which is in a middle of a firefight. Two Carl Gustavs kill off the bad guys and I wander down to the barge. Mission accomplished. 

So I think I might have to hold off on Godfather II till I finish Far Cry 2. Yup, it's that much fun.
2005  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Far Cry 2 on: April 06, 2009, 10:08:19 AM
Played several more hours this weekend, now up to 27% complete. I'm *so* glad I gave this game another try. It satisfies my inner need to play a first person shooter that's not on rails and has great scenery. Sort of like playing Fallout 3 without all that pesky inventory management  slywink

I went ahead and bought the DLC for the game. Since I don't play Far Cry 2 MP (as of yet), basically I'm just using the two vehicles and three new weapons. The new weapons are available in your private room at the gun dealer locations. They are free and always available, which is good. As mentioned there's a cut down double barrel shotgun that goes in your pistol slot, a silenced shotgun that goes in the main gun slot, and (my favorite) an explosives firing cross-bow that goes into the special weapon slot.

The two new vehicles show up in only a few locations on the map. One is a big four wheel drive truck with machine gun, which goes better cross-country. The other is a four wheel ATV and it's great. With no windshield or dash to get in the way it makes negotiating rough terrain a lot easier.

I've learned to accept that trying to blow through a roadblock will usually end up with me being pursued, so either I go around and bypass the problem, or I zip through then jump up to the MG while the vehicles coasts and take out my pursuers. Then I take their vehicle  icon_biggrin

I've gone back to hardcore mode since normal was getting to be too easy. I really like the AI, they can and do surprise you by fanning out and trying to outflank you. You can't simply stay put and fight it out, you have to move and shoot, shoot and move.

I've gotten plenty of play out of the game and I've still not unlocked the south half of the map. Cool.

IF you ever played Gangsters 1 or 2 this is the 3D version of that game.  

The changes they made to the second one kinda turned me off, but I liked Gangsters 1. If it's that kind of gameplay then I'll be pretty happy. Gangsters was fun in the way you ran your empire as a business venture, with goons and hit men. I'm a sick puppy, sure I am...  slywink

That's my dilemma too. Problem is- as best as I can surmise- I'm only about half way through the mainquest, have hit level 20- and if I finish it off to see the original ending, I'll waste oodles of XP.

I went through to the original ending to see it, then went back to a saved game and continued exploring. I'm kinda in the same boat, at level 20 and if there's going to be a lifting of the level cap, then I'm thinking I don't want to waste the XPs as well.

I did get motivated and gave it a go this afternoon. Holy smokes, didn't realize I was only 16% done. My next mission was getting something from the Fort, and since I wasn't in the mood to pussyfoot I attacked in daylight, with a rusty rifle. I barely survived  slywink. Lots of fun though.

Cripes, "The Pitt" DLC still having problems? I downloaded it, again, but I'm afraid to go there and risk locking up the game. I guess I'll have to wait some more.
2010  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Far Cry 2 on: March 31, 2009, 04:37:42 PM
I quit playing FC2 because of the giant rush of games that came out in October and November. I've tried to start it again, but it does take some concentration on relearning the control scheme and just basically figuring out what the hell you need to be doing.

I found that while there are some lamentable shortcomings of features that the developers either didn't have time for or decided again, there's a lot of depth to the game, if you are willing to do a little role-playing. Diamond hunting will eventually take you pretty much everywhere on the map, as will unlocking every safe house. It's an alternative goal when you get tired of missions.

Another fun pastime is ambushing the car patrols. As you move from place to place and take notice the patrol routine, you can set up an ambush at the turn around point.

Attacking the roadblocks is also fun, and to make it more interesting you can give yourself the goal of attacking at night and seeing if you can kill one guy, then keep away from the others long enough to have them lose interest, then go back and attack again.

And there's always the cross map races!
2011  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Saints Row 2 on: March 31, 2009, 10:31:36 AM
I never finished more than half the game last year due to the October flood of new stuff. I keep telling myself I'm going to sit down and finally finish at least all the mainline missions. Maybe new DLC will motivate me.

I picked up both of these for the Xbox (they are 360 backwards compatible) in the bargain bin of my local store awhile ago. They look ok on the 360, not great, but certainly playable. I'm wondering if there will be any changes when they go to XBL.

I can't swear to it, but I seem to remember someone mentioning when you entered "The Pitt" map area, it triggered the game update. When I got the DLC this morning the new quest showed up when I started, but there was no game update screen and restart.

Suddenly I feel a bit like Cassandra*, maybe my guess of March 31st (for the 360 edition) is going to be closer to the mark than others predicted!  Tongue

From Wikipedia:"In Greek mythology, Cassandra (Greek: Κασσάνδρα "she who entangles men") was the daughter of King Priam and Queen Hecuba of Troy. Her beauty caused Apollo to grant her the gift of prophecy. However, when she did not return his love, Apollo placed a curse on her so that no one would ever believe her predictions."

Question: I tried FC2 MP and didn't find it my cup of tea. However, I know there are other things in the DLC besides the new MP maps. Is it worth getting the DLC for the new content? I never got too far in FC2 SP and am considering starting it again, with the new items from the DLC.

2019  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty World at War (360) impressions on: March 20, 2009, 10:29:37 AM
I got in a couple of hours on the new maps with Hark and Hellspawn and a couple of others.

Nightfire isn't too dark, you probably just need to adjust your brightness. It is a pain in the ass sometimes, being a small map. It is very much like Chinatown, you walk around outside, you're gonna get sniped. It does seem to be a good map for campers, since there are several ambush spots. Once I get used to finding them, I'll be dropping some bettys  ninja

Station is pretty good. The design is pretty linear, but the curve of the tracks cuts off any real long sniper shots. Also it's a really big map; I was surprised at how long it can take to amble down from one end to the other. Because at any location there are five different paths running parallel it's not going to be dominated by bettys. I know, I tried. Check out the blue signs in the stairwells at each end, very cool  slywink

Knee Deep is brilliant. Very open with no obvious travel routes. Lots and lots of good locations to set up an ambush, but all of them are open to being outflanked easily. Bettys are probably only going to be worthwhile if you are going to camp and even then with two bettys you can't block all approaches to most camping spots. A good map for the use of Deep Impact, since there are few concrete structures. It's a map where I wish I could have three primary grenades.

Map Pack is very good. Knee Deep is very cool, the subway map is very large and has interesting paths. The Night Fire map is smaller, but like Chinatown there are elevated locations and it's a decent map for snipers, but they don't dominate.

That's interesting. I don't see this having a huge impact on Gamestop for a variety of reasons:

I agree. Prices seem comparable to Gamestop, but having to ship and then wait for an Amazon.com gift card being deposited in your account means if there's a hiccup in the transaction you're having to deal with the post office and the Amazon complaint department. Plus there's the time factor. Often I don't decide to trade in a game till I'm getting a new one or Gamestop has some promotion.

Additionally, Amazon's definition of "good condition" means the original manual has to be included. Since I've never traded in a game at Gamestop without the manual I'm not sure, but I think they don't card if it has the manual or not. And it's can't be "damaged" for Amazon's acceptance.

I think after the initial excitement over this announcement Gamestop will still be the preferred trade-in option.

One interesting thing. I was looking at their list of game trade-in values and I notice that Baja: Edge of Control for the 360 will net you $12, but the PS3 version will only credit you with $8.

Did they take out police chases during races in the patch?  I ran a bunch of races today and didn't get chased by any cops mid-race, which is a good thing. 
During all the races I've run in those five hours I might have had cops show up two or three times. Since I never played before the patch I can't say how bad it was then, but I wasn't bothered at all by it.

I picked the game up yesterday, feeling the need to wash the bad taste of Race Pro out of my mouth. When this came out it was in the middle of the Fallout 3/CoD:WaW crush and so got pretty much ignored. Additionally, I'm always leery of street racing games because it's so easy to screw up the format.

I can happily attest that after about five hours of play I'm having a lot of fun. I never played it before the patch, but I'm doing fine at the easier of the four levels of opponents (green, yellow, orange, red) and can even challenge decently at the higher levels. I have the reactions of a dead otter, but since I'm a fan of the GTA games my street racing "skillz" aren't too bad. MCLA does an excellent job of allowing some breakneck speed through a whole city (well, a miniature city) of obstacles. I didn't see this mentioned in the reviews I read, but when you hit light poles and trees, you tend to glance off, losing some speed but staying intact. This is true of a lot of other objects as well.

What is also fun, and this surprised me as well, is that I'm enjoying the customization of my car. Yup, five hours in and I'm still tinkering with my VW Scirocco. I've got all the performance upgrades added, but now I'm tweaking the paint, the rims, hell even the size and profiles of the tires. Cool.


UPDATE: Hey, how do you take photos in-game to put in your photo album?

FYI on a new Chronicles of Riddick demo.  You can even set up your Xbox to download the demo right from the link provided.

Wish there was a way to remotely power up my 360, let it download the demo and then terminate.

BTW, is there a setting where the 360 will auto power down after not being used for some time? I might have some use for that.

On Major Nelson's Twitter update, he mentions that the three new CoWWaW DLC maps will be premiered on his Friday night show, no word on when they will be available to download.

Played some more last night in Hardcore Team Deathmatch. Got to play Outskirts and this map is still fun without tanks. It does move at a slower pace, but there's so much cover that moving around isn't a problem. Going up into the steeple is now certain death since now people aren't being distracted by tanks rolling around and they check it more often. Bettys aren't as useful since there's less funneling through distinct choke points.

I may have to try some of the other hardcore modes, but really now I'm just waiting for the three new maps. Once they arrive I hope they get dropped into the HCTM rotation and Downfall and Seelowe get removed.

Actually if you can get your team to work together these might be interesting maps.

When has that EVER happened??   icon_biggrin

Not often, but sometimes and especially when we have our gang playing together. Still, it's going to be a pain for awhile when the five people you happen to have on your side all decide to be snipers, leaving you to root out the bad guys. Goodbye Betty, hello Bombsquad!

I can attest that Seelowe and Downfall do really suck without tanks. Too big. Seelowe is especially bad since everything is buildings surrounded by mostly empty space, so it becomes a sniper match. Downfall is a bit better since there's a lot of cover in the middle. The other two maps are small enough and have enough cover that you don't miss the tanks.

Now this isn't to say that Seelowe and Downfall won't be fun after a while without tanks. It's just going to take some rethinking of how you approach the maps. Actually if you can get your team to work together these might be interesting maps. Oh, and don't forget your smoke!

OMG, I just played CODWOW in Hardcore Team Deathmatch and they have taken the tanks out of the tank maps!

Huh, I played for a couple hours after patching yesterday and didn't notice any real changes to spawning. Every one in a while you spawned in a bad place or near the enemy, but much more often it was in some relative safety. CoDWaW has always been criticized for the spawning locations and everyone has a horror story or two, but it didn't seem any better or worse than before.

Regarding the new Makin Daytime map, they did say they adjusted parts of the map, so the fences may indeed have been moved.
