Updated with a new link to try.  They're on to me!!


EDIT:  Weird the st pete's times article link doesn't work from the sfgate article either.  Mother Russia doesn't want us to know!
11243  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / The Dyatlov Pass Incident on: February 27, 2008, 05:30:53 PM
This is a neat read that was in the local paper today.  It's from a mysterious event that occurred in Russia in the 50s and was never properly solved.

Try this link:

http://www.sfgate.com/columnists/morford/

should only work for a day or so and then I'll see if it can be updated.  This is the OG article from sfgate.com where I found the link the the st pete's times article

I thought MGS1 was amazing.  2 was horrible and that's the last one I played.  I'm excited about this one though.
11246  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: MGS4 Release Date on: February 26, 2008, 09:07:13 PM
Well if I didn't just buy a PS3 I would for sure get this bundle.  I think it's a nice package for those waiting to come on board.  It's not so good though that it makes me regret getting a system now, instead of waiting until June, which is quite a bit of game time away!
11247  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: MGS4 Release Date on: February 26, 2008, 08:00:39 PM
The PS3 bundle is official.  $499

I grew a beard about a year ago and I like it.  I keep it clean though, no ZZ-Top.  Part of it was because I got tired of shaving.  Part of it was because I want to be King Leonidas.

I saw this article at Kotaku and it got me thinking:

http://kotaku.com/360832/harrison-molyneux-agree-+-controllers-are-too-complicated

I can see where people are coming from, but if future consoles go the way of the Wii and their Wii-mote, I'm not going to be a happy gamer.  Do you guys think that game controllers are getting too complicated?  Do you think the industry is going to change to more basic controls in the next round?

After being skeptical of Transformers and having that movie rock my socks off, I am eagerly anticipating GI Joe the movie.  And if it sucks, I'll just remember Cobra-la and the original GI Joe movie and still be happy.

Have you seen their stocks today? Up 50%.  I could give a shit less what the experts say - that stock bump is probably the more telling factor.

Doesn't it have to do that though.  EA offered them a premium of like $10 a share.  If the market keeps trading at $17 and EA is offering $26, then people can make a fortune off the deal.  This way, the gain is only pennies.  At least, that's how I always figured it.

Gellar I am 6 mos into 30 and it's changed man.  I used to be able to eat steaks at midnight and lose weight.  Go boozing for days on end and it was like metabolism fuel.  I'm still healthy weight, 6-2, ~180, but man it's really a shock when you have to go to the gym just to maintain because the pounds don't just drop off from doing nothing.

WEll according to a podcast I heard recently, Madden sales for 2007 (or 8 whichever one came out most recently) were far lower than previous years. Perhaps they want to gobble up new talent to buttress that brand?

Not like they have any competition anyway...

Also, is there some trick for quickly going to the DLC songs, other than scrolling down to the bottom?

Only download songs from the 60s and 70s, then sort the list by decade. slywink

When I want to play something I've just downloaded I usually just sort by artist or song title and find it that way.  The little DLC icon makes them easier to spot.

Ah, I guess my prob is that I always play songs from within Career mode, I barely ever use quickplay.

I never use quickplay, I'm usually in Band World Tour or in Solo Career.  I guess I assumed we were talking about BWT.

Hmm, I guess I've never tried to sort in BWT.  I always just scroll down.  Well that is good to know, I'll try that out later.

11267  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Things I've noticed now that I have a 360 and a PS3. on: February 25, 2008, 03:02:43 PM
Hey, I just got a PS3 last week too!  It now joins my 360 for next gen goodness at my place!!

I think you nailed all of the points I thought as well.  Actually, it's kind of weird how similar my feelings are between them both o_0   

Target had that sale where you get a $40 gc with the purchase of a 40GB PS3 and they had Resistance on sale for $40, so I picked both of them up.

(not to derail too much, but some more impressions)

- Uncharted is AMAZING.  Same feelings I got from Gears of War as in, "Wow, this is truly a next-gen game."  I'm totally loving this one.

- Resistance seems bland so far, I've read a lot here about how it takes a bit to pick up.  You can definitely tell it's a launch title.

- I downloaded (bought) Pixel Junk Monsters (which is basically Warcraft 3 Tower Defense) but it was well done and I wanted to support it.

- I also downloaded the demo for Ratchet and Clank and I don't understand what all the praise was for.  The demo seemed pretty blah to me.  Is it a bad representation of the full game?  Also what's up with not being able to invert the aiming.  Hopefully that's demo only.

So yeah, the PS3 is gonna be my multi-media device, while the Xbox 360 will be my platform of choice for multi-platform games.  I'm happy to now be able to enjoy exclusives on both platforms.

I just finished the solo tour for drums on Easy and man oh man, what fun.  The set list was short though, I guess the higher levels have more to the set list.  Not to mention the 700 MB of DLC I bought slywink 

I didn't think that another instrument would be as fun as the guitar, but I am a total drum convert now....what a blast.  Bravo Harmonix!!

GH/RB - I had never tried them until GH3.  I was instantly hooked on my first song on easy.

gotta go with the auger.  Nothing in gaming like seeing some fat old grandmother spinning at 300rpm's and mowing down other zombies with her slowly shredding torso.

Did I say that?!  Man, that's just wrong.

Wait. Where does one get the auger?  The hardware store? I've never used it...

Yeah....when your 360 comes back, go straight there and see this in action!

For guitar you can trigger star power at any time by tilting the guitar upright, provided you have enough energy to trigger.

According to a couple news sites, Still Alive by GLaDOS was confirmed at the Valve party last night as being playable in Rock Band.  LOL sweet.

EDIT:  Question guys, I tried to use my RB guitar with GH2 and it didn't work...I thought that problem was PS3 only?
