11281  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: GHIII Demo may have sold me.... on: November 09, 2007, 11:19:39 PM
I'll say that I like the set list in 3 much more than 2 as well.  I played 3 first though, so that might have something to do with it.  I like just about every song in 3.  There's a bunch in 2 that I had never even heard of.

I don't get how you can cheat in consoles?  I've had to deal with cheating on PCs forever online, but I didn't think the same things existed in the console world.

I rented The Simpsons game from Blockbuster.  I'll probably get in some GH2 and 3.  Maybe even a bit of Halo 3 or GoW online.

Gears of War was amazing.  It's quite a short SP game, but it was a true introduction to next gen for me.

I believe there is something simple you can use, like some kind of sub-sonic thing, or else a squirrel repellent.

I once heard you can purchase something like fox musk, which causes the squirrels to stay far away.

Bravo, you guys don't have to go Rambo on them to get rid of them.

Jade said there would not be a demo due to the nature of the game being a sandbox environment and all.

That's a little sketchy for a console you just bought.  I've had mine since August and it's locked up once I think.  If it was right after I got home with it though, I think I would return it for a new one, just in case.

How'd you get it for $10??

split the cost with my gaming group- as no one else was really in a hury to play it we pitched in 10 bucks a piece and it will be passed on to whoever wants it next.

Wow that's cool.  Damn all my friends not being gamers!  /shakes fist

I just finished the SP campaign on Heroic and I have a question no one has brought up thus far.

One of my favorite Halo 3 commericals was the Master Chief Momument.

In it, it shows a brute holding MC by the neck and all kinds of hell breaking loose between the humans and the brutes.

It also shows MC holding a plasma and I always was wondering, what happens there? I checked out the Halo 3 website and the scene has the following description: "Spartan-117 turned the tide in the battle for New Mobassa. By allowing his own capture, the Master Chief set in motion events that have sealed his title as Earth's greatest hero."

Damn, if I can remember this happening in the game. Did I miss a level?

Nope, the ad guys just came up with cool stuff, it had nothing to do with the game really.

11309  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Official GHIII impressions thread on: November 06, 2007, 09:06:30 PM
My copy of GH2 that I bought used from Amazon arrived and I have that to compare now.  I like the look of 3 better.  Note that 3 was the first one I played.  I also find that 2 is much easier so far than 3 is.  I started on Medium right off the bat this time and I got a 500 note streak on the first song.  I think my best in 3 is around 350.  I've gotten 5 stars on just about all the songs that I've tried on Medium.  I have to really try hard to get 5 stars in 3.  I also beat the first song on Hard mode in 2, where in 3 I failed the first song on Hard after 4%.

Either way I'm glad to have more songs to play...I'm really enjoying this game-type!

Is COD4 MP like Halo where you can get shot 10 times, or is it a more realistic 1 shot-1 kill type of game?

Quote from: lildrgn on November 06, 2007, 07:06:44 PM

That's it. I have cash money (thank you mileage reimbursement!) to get a 360 (the pro pack, with the 2 games). I won't have an HDTV until my current 40" standard RPTV gives it up. It does have component video, though, so I suppose it's not a total POS.

I plan on heading to BB today, getting that pack, with the extended warranty.

I'm wondering how I'm gonna manage the cables now, with the Wii and PS2. Hmm.

I bought one of those cable switchers at one point, I think it was from Pelican?  It was only ~$20 at amazon.

Turtle, the issue is if you want to send audio and video to separate locations,
Like audio to a receiver but video directly to a TV.

That's an issue?  WTF?

gellar

If you buy MS' cable then it has a dongle that allows you to split audio and video.  Otherwise, the hdmi port is too close to the audio-video port and if you use a regular hdmi cable, you cannot also use the audio-video slot.

That's bloody STUPID.  Marks up another reason why I will not be purchasing a replacement 360 once MS decides to stop repairing my broken ones.

gellar

wait hold on, I think there is some misinformation here...I really don't understand what some people earlier in this thread are complaining about.  the new 360s *come with both an HDMI cable and the audio adapter cable/box that has optical out on it*

there is no problem using both the HDMI port and the A/V port.  my friend has a 360 Elite and this is exactly what he does.  there is no need to buy anything extra whatsoever, except for an optical cable if you don't already have one

Hmmm, my hdmi pro came with a dongle that allows you to use the component cables and the optical out, not hdmi and optical out.  I don't have a receiver, but I tried to connect both my regular hdmi-only cable and the pack-in audio-video cable and they can't both be plugged in at the same time.

EDIT:  the Elite comes with the hdmi dongle, but the hdmi pro models (at least when I got mine in August) only come with component cables.

You can play a solo guitar campaign, a solo drum campaign, and a solo singing campaign.  If you're asking what you can do with the RB standalone game and a GH3 controller, yes you can play the solo guitar stuff. 

Thank you!

I'm thinking of jumping into the whole Xbox Live Arcade and getting a few games on there as well as the DLC for Marvel:UA. With the high probability that my 360 will eventually fail me, how do you get your downloads back if your system has to be replaced? I assume you wouldn't have to buy them all over again?

I just want to make sure that what I buy stays "bought" regardless of any issues that might come up with my system.

The content is tied to your gamertag, and if you had a 360 go belly up, all you would have to do is sign in again, on the new or refurbished console, and download your stuff again. You will NEVER have to rebuy it.

What about your gamer score?  Does that get populated if your console dies a horrible death and you need a new one?
