I downloaded the demo for the PS3 and I was not impressed at all.  I never played the first game, so this was my intro to the series.  I've been a fan of Monolith games in the past, but this demo was bad.  Clunky movement, awkward weapon swinging.  Little oil gremlins that would attack me before my stupid wrench would swing.  Blech.

That's been my EXACT same experience.  Sometimes I wonder if Kevin and I are the same person.
gellar

I know Kevin Grey. Kevin Grey's a friend of mine.  And you, Gellar, are no Kevin Grey.

Kevin Grey is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. The mere fact that you would admit to knowing Kevin Grey positively establishes the fact that you are not the REAL ATB.

The OP should ignore this charlatan.

my personal belief is that "kevin grey" is itself a bit of misdirection at us earthbound types.  i think "kevin" is only the closest sounding english name to the syllables we humans can perceive, and that it is only 40% of the full name.  dogs could probably hear ~80%, although they wouldn't be able to understand it. 

i think "grey" is his attempt at dry humor at our expense.  his bit of hiding in plain sight, if you will. 





or it could be the 4 hours of broken sleep talking.  not sure really.

Not to mention one of the pictures has Snake Eyes holding a gun.  I don't remember much about the cartoon, but I don't remember Snake Eyes ever using a gun.

He sure did.  He came with an Uzi, IIRC.

Blu-Ray's are a noticable upgrade in visual quality (for most movies with a good transfer anyway).

I wonder if people who say they can't notice a difference are renting blu-ray discs with bad transfers.  I was extremely disappointed with the blu-ray Terminator 2 I rented, as it was hardly improved from the DVD version I already own.

I've noticed that on almost all blu-rays I've watched, there's always a couple scenes that are bad transfers.  Some parts look awesome and some parts look like crap.

OMGHI2U BOSTON SONG PAX! SO IN.

Since you've been out of the thread for a while, have you seen the new in-game music store yet?

I would love to see a DLC sales chart from Harmonix to see the sales spike after the store release.  I know I spent at least $20 after going through the song previews with my wife.

Ha, I ended up buying a song through the store that I had overlooked before.

Yeah the Boston 6-pack.

This is awesome.  Some kid breaks into a house and steals a halo edition 360.  He then sends a ransom voicemail, through live AND from his personal Live! account, to the victim when they try and recover their account on a new 360.  The victim blogs about this and it get's digged.  Internet justice ensues.

PS3.  The system is awesome.  The interface is slick.  The best game of all time is on the system (Uncharted).  It's a blu-ray player.

I also don't like portable systems.

Depending on if you put down your credit card down you can get them to ship you a set before you send yours back.  I think it took 2 days to get my replacement set going that route.  Then you ship your broken set back and they never charge you for anything.

I'm not too excited about the Boston 6-pack either.  I might just grab 1 or 2 of them individually.

It almost sounds like you guys are playing realistic.  On normal, sprinting from cover to cover, peeking out to assess the situation, not once have I been one-shotted.

I've been playing normal, and several times I got one shotted peeking around a corner, but in all fairness it has been mostly the snipers that get me.  mostly.

In case you didn't get your RS:V2 from BestBuy, here's the special Weapon unlock code:

In the MAIN MENU use the following code to unlock the Exclusive Best Buy Assault Rifle:
(HOLD RB) Down, Down, Up, Up, X, B, X, B, Y Up, Up, Y



If I'm reading this right, it just unlocks the Tar21 earlier than if you earned it through ACES skill (Marksman)

Yep, that's the one.

Apparently over some of the weapon choices it says you can "buy" that gun on the Xbox Live marketplace.

First horse armor, now this.  Micro-transactions suck!

You do realize that this is the entire reason for the game, right? The game itself is supposed to be free (or really cheap), and you'll pay for extra weapons/costumes/etc that aren't supposed to unbalance gameplay with those who didn't buy said gun.

Uhh, the game supposedly is retailing for $59.99...

Yeah I think you're thinking of the PC game Battlefield: Heroes.

It's not like the old PC games where you plan it all out ahead of time, but the campaign mode does have you telling AI guys where to stack up and how to breach then issuing the go command.

the PC games had a planning stage?  Tongue  I actually ditched most of the teammates in the PC games and ran the maps solo, except for the rare map that would require multiple teams (like one of the last ones in the very first game with multiple devices that needed to be disarmed within minutes of each other).  I do miss the fact that you never had to worry about enemies spawning back in after you cleared an area-  now it's pretty much 'ok, I cleared the area but one I start hacking/disarming this device we're going to get swarmed by more bad guys than are in any given Steven Seagal movie'.

Yeah that's why I could never get into the PC R6 games...you had to map out your entire path through the level at the beginning o_0.  No thanks!!
