Word from CAG is that this ad is being reprinted today.  I'm going to see if I can find a paper and just PM this at BB or something.

The real question is is there anyway MGS4 lives up to the anticipation?

Is there any way it can?  It'll probably play the Halo game, where reviewers give it inflated scores even though it's not that good.  Millions of people buy it and enjoy it regardless, but it's no COD4.

Having played all of these on the PC, I think that HL2 Vanilla is the worse one of the series.  HL1 is my absolute fav.  Black Mesa is the best game location ever.  Yes, Zen world sucked, but Black Mesa rules.  HL2 was dull and boring for me.  But Ep1 and especially Ep2 are amazing.

Snaking confirmed as NOT being in the Wii version of Mario Kart.

Which automatically makes it better than the DS version.

I haven't played since the Cube version a while back, but I rather liked the snaking business.

Hopefully they'll put in the 'analog controls optional' enhancement to Lair. biggrin

there's actually a very good possibility that they will be...

Would be nice if they just release that as a patch and not a pay DLC.  Then I can pick up Lair on the cheap at Amazon and get analog controls without having to pay extra for them.

Especially since, you know, the game sucked.

From what I hear, the controls were the problem.  You fix the controls you fix the game.

why buy it for the PS3 when it's coming out for the 360 too?  slywink

Yeah. I know.  It doesn't make sense. But I want High Definition Movies SO BAD.

Huh. Guess I'm out.

That's ok, I'll let you know how it goes.

Vegas looks good, but I think I'll wait until I can find it on sale.  I don't really want to play the MP, sounds too tactical for my tastes.

I've played Gimme Shelter a couple times in solo tour (guitar), but for some reason it won't register on the leaderboards.  Still says I haven't played it.  Strange...

I don't suppose there's any way to correct that, is there?

Depending on your score, if you don't score high enough you won't register on the site.  Otherwise I've found it takes quite some time for the scores to update correctly.

But vegas 1 didn't really have any good unlocks at higher ranks unless you think pink armor is a great reward. 

I hear Hark loves the pink armor.

That's the only reason he was good at the game, he got cheap kills while we laughed at how stupid he looked.  I hope they nerf pink armor.  Nerf melons too while they are at it.

I never used the pink armor, I used the "cotton-candy clouds" camo and blended right in with the decor of your rooms you pussies.

lol!

Hey, I like Denon too, but to get HDMI 1.3a inputs, I'd have to go up to the AVR-5803CI.  That's very cool, but has a MSRP of $5200.  That's well out of my range.

Actually...

Tongue

That said I still think if I was going to get one now it would be one of the newer Onkyo series. They're the only affordable receivers that support all the new audio formats on Blu-Ray like DTS-HD and it's Dolby competitor.
Unless I'm reading that wrong, you can't output a non HDMI source through the HDMI connection and you can't use HDMI as the sound cable.  Perhaps I should have said "HDMI 1.3 a inputs with audio and video processing" instead. slywink

Ok my Onkyo 605 can output any video input to the receiver, out to the monitor via HDMI.  For example my cable box goes into my receiver with Component cables, but there's just a single HDMI cable feeding my tv.  I can also use my HDMI cable to pass audio through to the monitor if I don't want to output it to the external speakers.  If that's what you're looking for, then it's available starting at $400.

Ok Chaz, I know you've got all that confidentiality stuff to deal with...but please blink once if you think "Still Alive" is coming soon, twice if it's at least hitting us in April, and thrice if even April is too optimistic.

I cannot answer your question, even in blinks.  For this I am sorry.

The thrash pack is indeed for those looking for a challenge.  These songs, particularly Thrasher, are the most ungodly song in the game, and that includes the Metallica DLC.  They are definitely not for the faint of heart.  Even bass is hard, and the drums are serious too.

EDIT: Something I've always loved about the Harmonix games is including songs I haven't heard of, but that I wind up loving by the time I've played them a few times.  What GH3 taught me is that just because I love a song, doesn't mean it'll be fun to play in the game (Slow Ride).  I will admit that the flaw in that plan is that in a party setting, most people only want to play songs they know, which is unfortunate.  I was at one party where I put on a song I love, but isn't known at all, and one guy failed out within 30 seconds, declared that the song sucked hard, and refused to play it again, then made fun of me for liking it.  A party's a tough crowd.

THANK. GOD.


Also, how have you guys never heard of Paramore or Serj Tankanian(or whatever the spelling is)? I don't dig Serj, in fact I can't stand a lot of SoaD songs. Paramore gets played quite frequently here. Though a local radio station is independantly own and ran by some ex green bayer. So I don't have to deal with shitty play lists. If you even liked CCC a little you should really check out the rest of the album. It's pretty damn good. CCC wouldn't have been my first choice of song from the CD, but whatever.

Yeah they wouldn't know if they didn't listen to the radio.
