Looks pretty, sucks about updates though for those with only 1 console.

Depends on the RockBand DLC this week.  I also plan on trying to find a MGS4 pre-order with the bonus disc this week.

Is that the one with the crazy AZN magician or is that the sequel?

Mako!  His last role was voicing splinter in the TMNT CG movie.  Yeah he's in this movie.  Although isn't he in both?  Or am I crazy?
11206  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Conan the Barbarian was on tonight on: March 30, 2008, 04:53:48 PM
This is one of my top 5 movies of all time.  It was always on TV when I was a kid and I can't even count how many times I watched it.  Conan became the first DVD that I ever purchased, as well.

while still having a blast with the game, I am seeing the issues with lag more and more along with a general clunkiness when trying to rapidly switch weapons.  Combined with the complete retardedness of the players and it's been a bit frustrating.  Still looking forward to friend play though.

Yeah it's been SUPER laggy and chugging lately.  Blech!

Giant Bomb reports the rumor that it will be a prequel, which sounds kind of cool.

That's a pretty good decision.  There was a lot they could do about the events leading up to where the player comes in... but I can't see how they would do much after the BS1 ending.  It was pretty definitive.

BTW, how much time was supposed to have passed between that first riot and where the game begins?

I would say a quite a few months.

yeah, it had to take some time to get all those makeshift turrets together.

I was wondering if it was months, or years.

At first I thought years, but then I thought it was too fresh down there still...a year at most is my guess.  Just my gut feeling is all.

11223  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Battlefield: Bad Company beta on: March 28, 2008, 05:59:53 AM
Game certainly has potential.  I found the controls to be floaty too, but I think that was more lag than anything else.  When I threw a grenade, it looks like it just drops to the ground, then a second or two later you see it fly away. 

Unfortunately, I spent most of the time wondering what the f was going on.  There was a lot of icons and crap on the screen and I never really knew what to do.

A couple times I spawned in a building that was too dark to see around and there didn't appear to be a door to get out....what's up with that?  Another time I spawned in a house with doors, but I couldn't open them.

Also my kit didn't have a handgun?  Just a main weap and grenades.  I also didn't like how you have to equip a grenade and then throw it...haven't we gotten past that?  Give me 1 button to throw grenades please.

The destructable environments sure are cool though. 
11224  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dawn of War 2 Announced!! on: March 28, 2008, 05:13:31 AM
I liked this RTS, although I am not familiar with the source material, the universe was always cool to me.  Out in early 2009 or so.

Stolen from neogaf:

The intel (gathered from the preview and an interview with Producer Mark Noseworthy in the same Belgian magazine, PC Gameplay):

- Uses the Essence 2.0 engine with Havok physics, all optimised for DX10 and multicore support.
- It looks great, think of the DoW intro but with a bit less polygons here and there (in terms of lighting and all that it looks almost exactly the same).
- Units also use CoH-like unit AI for awareness and pathfinding to find cover and such.
- While DoW 2 shares the same (upgraded probably) engine as CoH[ it won't be "CoH in space",/B] while soldiers in CoH will ask themselves if flanking the enemy is the right option, in DoW2 it will be more like Space Marines asking themselves if they should use their jetpacks to jump over an Ork squad to attack them in the back. Different settings, different kinds of warfare.
- Preview only showed a destroyed city landscape, akin to DoW (but more detailed), other tilesets will offer deserts, jungles, mountains and other cities.
- Only the Orkz and Space Marines were revealed, more races on the way obviously and to be to revealed later this year (though how many isn't known).
- Co-op campaign for both the Orkz and Space Marines, apparently not for the other to-be-revealed races.
- More focus on making units and squads unique; every unit has got a name (at least in the campaign it seems), more details and more animations.
- Relic wants to give players rewards at the end of a mission like wargear (armor, weapons, rare objects); "Let's pimp out squads with cool stuff!", you will see these items in-game as well of course.
- You'll fight your way through the campaign with the same squads.
- You can't control more than six squads! I am not sure if this is campaign-only but the preview made it sound like it wasn't.
- The squads are going to be a lot more interesting than before though.
- A squad leader (one or several?) will need to survive if you want to complete a mission; you really have to look out for your squads and don't treat them like cannon fodder.
- There is a lot more interesting commentary from the units as well; if your SM commander is holding a Thunder Hammer f.e. then the opponent will specifically comment on that, Ork Warchief saying something like "Ooh, nice hammer, but mine is bigger!". The warchief will say something else if the commander doesn't have the hammer.
- The campaign lets Space Marines operate from a spaceship, you'll get a view of an underlying planet and you'll be able to choose from different missions (which are tagged with difficulty colours, green, blue and red).
- Certain reward items won't be useable at once in the campaign, so they'll be taken back to the SM spaceship for research.
- Dreadnought can now also trample Orkz.
- No sea or air units (though jetpacks are still in of course).
- Development team of 55 people has been working on it since September 2006.
- Release in early 2009 or later.

Konami's Metal Gear Solid 4 pre-order program will be kicking off proper very soon, as the bonus disc and beta invites have begun to ship to stores. An IGN board member posted pics yesterday of the Metal Gear Saga 2.0 DVD, the one gamers get when they pre-order the game, which contains a six chapter catch up on all things Metal Gear Solid. According to the poster's recount of the beta details, downloads for the Metal Gear Online trial period begin April 17, with the beta program running April 21 to May 5.

I don't want to blow the above out of proportion as by and large the majority of people on LIVE in my experience are great and my friends list is full of them.

Just a small minority and I was one of them last night...

It only takes one of these, and I experienced one, and I'm done with open internet multi forever.  ONLY play coop with people I know personally.  Period.  Life is too short to put up with that even remotely happening.  But that's me.

This doesn't happen if you set your voice coms to friends only.

If it's like the COD4 beta, go to XBOX LIve marketplace and selet redeem code.  Input the digits and you should be all set.

Yep, this is how it works.

Index finger on red and pinky on orange.  When you have to play green notes move index finger there and then back.

I found this real helpful too.  But yeah you just gotta practice and eventually it just clicks.

Wait times are going to vary for everyone depending on what regional distribution center you are pulling from. 

I was praising my Massachusetts distribution center in the earlier Netflix threads, but I've been unsuccessfully trying to get the blu-ray I Am Legend since release and it doesn't look like it's coming any time soon.  So maybe my center's not that different than the rest of yours.

they're probably busy shipping it off to other states.  I've gotten stuff shipped to me from as far away as Oregon.  Of course I don't feel like waiting for the disc to return to them in Oregon so I usually double them up into an envelope going back to the local one.

I live near SF and I had a blu-ray ship from Phoenix once.

From 1UP.com

I'm not really sure about this one, but I figure some people will be excited.  All I know is that in order to play the special forces classes, you have to be in a clan and that sounds like ass to me.

Quote
We've brought you several big stories on SOCOM Confrontation in the past month, but today Sony passed on one more important piece of information: a release date. The latest iteration of the popular online shooter franchise will be arriving on September 16.

To celebrate this news, tomorrow Sony will be launching SOCOM.com, an online community site devoted to the game. Pre-release, the site will provide regular news updates as well as a place for fans to get together. Once the game has launched, gamers will discover full integration with the website, including near real-time stat tracking, clan management tools, and more.

You can check out 1UP's most recent online preview of SOCOM from the beginning of the year, but if you want a more up-to-date and in-depth look at the game, you'll want to pick up the May issue of EGM -- the one with the colorful SOCOM cover below. Check it out on newsstands next week or in your mailbox any day now if you're a subscriber. EDIT: And enjoy the new exclusive screenshot above!

I've been having all sorts of trouble even getting regular DVD versions of new releases lately.  I think right now I have 5 recent releases (the last month or so) still on Long Wait and a few other things on Short Wait.  Up until a month or two ago I never, ever had that problem.  It's really pissing me off that it's been weeks and I still haven't gotten new releases. 

That's odd, I had Hitman (BR) on the top of my list the other day with Long Wait.  I returned a movie and Hitman shipped to me with no wait.
