Map Details

The Variety Map Pack includes four new multiplayer maps. "Creek" is a wide-open village ravaged by combat where concealment is the difference between life and death. In "Broadcast," fight throughout an enemy communications building with confined corridors and wide-open parking lots. "Chinatown" is a foggy downtown district, lit only by a full moon and the neon glow of the city. "Killhouse" features a desolate training warehouse filled with a variety of building mock-ups and soft and hard cover points.

- Is there a way to have your guys follow you?  Or do you have to tell them where to go always?

Hitting down on the d-pad tells them to follow you or hold position.  I usually leave the guys on assault and as far as I can tell there's no real 'silent' option.

Sweet, thanks CeeKay!

Mega-chain Best Buy is sending $50 gift cards to customers who bought HD DVD players or attachments from its US stores prior to Feb. 23 (coincidentally, for our readership, the date Microsoft declared the format dead to the company). CNN reports most customers won't have to do a thing to receive the card as they'll be identified through the Reward Zone program, service plans or online purchases. If you're a customer who won't be identified in this manner, just grab a receipt (you do keep those, right?) or provide your credit card info to the company for proof of purchase. Gift cards will be sent out by May 1.

Hey guys, as I am playing through the first one I have some questions.

- Is there a way to have your guys follow you?  Or do you have to tell them where to go always?

- Do you guys normally put them on infiltrate, or do you let them go on assault and have all the fun?

- Is the gameplay idea that you set them up tactically and then take out the bad guys silently?

Thanks!

I use the Gillette Fusion and it blows the Mach 3 out of the water.

I agree, been using the new brand for awhile now.

I have no issues using water to tap out and clean while using the razor. I replace the blade every 3 shaves.

Jesus I don't know what a Gillette Fusion costs but if it's anything like a Mach 3 then that must cost a fortune!!!  I use Mach 3 and I replace my razor every....3 weeks, or maybe more.  I don't shave every day but usually I do.

It does cost a fortune.  I think because of this I grew a beard smile

have you had any issues with it clogging up between all the blades halfway through the shave?  maybe it's just that the water pressure for the faucet in the bathroom sink sucks but it's a pain to rinse out, even if I put it under the bathtub spigot.

Nah, I haven't had issues with the blades getting clogged.  I used the Mach 3 for years and after one use of the Fusion I was sold on it really.

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.

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.

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.
