11604  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Simpsons Game Best Buy Code? on: October 28, 2007, 04:18:15 PM
Hey all, I was looking at the Best Buy ad for today and I see that there's some Best Buy exclusive code to unlock the Medal of Homer level.  Is this really what it sounds like?  You cannot play a whole mission from the game unless you buy it from Best Buy?  Does anyone have more detail on this?

Hey guys, sorry for the thread Necro.

I've been back on the Dead Rising kick lately and I have a question.  I get my ass handed to me by most bosses.  Did most of you play through a time or two to build up your stats before really killing most of the bosses?  I'm wondering if my character is just too weak to handle them on the first play through.

Thanks much!

I'll be buying this for sure when it's released.  I doubt I'll be getting Mass Effect though, at least not for some time.

It's definitely arriving now.  Best Buy had a mountain of big shipping boxes marked Red Octane, so it's in back rooms.

Anyone check their local Sears yet or is this an isolated incident or a viral marketing ploy?

I just went to the Sears by work and they don't even carry video games.

wait a second....

it seems all of the uproar is over quickplay co-op.

Curious why it is such a big deal when you can just go with multiplayer co-op....

My understanding was that my buddy was mad that when you do co-op you can only do so at the difficulty level that the song was unlocked at.  So if someone is expert and the other guy is normal, and the expert guy unlocked the song, they can only play on expert instead of selecting a difficulty level for each.

This doesn't affect me, I won't be playing MP at all, but it was something he mentioned being upset about and it made no sense to me.

If there's money to be made, resources will be found.  The bad news is that doesn't mean that KOTOR 3 would be any good.  Hell, we saw how they screwed up the ending in KOTOR2.  I think the only real chance of us seeing a KOTOR3 is through the success of this MMO, assuming it is real. smile

Right, but KOTOR 2 *was* a success (at least financially) but, three years on, and no sequel is in sight while Lucasarts has pumped out numerous Battlefront and Lego Star Wars sequels in the mean time.  I'm guessing that they asked Bioware to do KOTOR 3 single player, Bioware countered with an offer to do it as an MMO (giving Bioware a step up on their first MMO foray) and Lucasarts decided to just let that stand as KOTOR 3. 

I'd almost say that a KOTOR MMO failure would be more likely to get us a new KOTOR single player game.

BTW, still looking for an answer to #6!

One more.

9. I remember reading reports about some 360's eating discs. Is it still not a good idea to have the 360 stand on its side? (like the Wii) Is there any cooling benefit/detriment to doing so?


I am not sure what you mean by 6.  If you have a wired connection to the Xbox, it should work just fine.  The only wireless adapter you can use is the MS one, but it's rather expensive. 

As for 9, I lay mine down flat, but not because of disc eating fears, but because when you stand it upright, you completely block off an entire side of vents.  For a machine that's prone to overheating, it seems foolish to even think about standing it upright and blocking off more ventilation.

Spoiler for only read if you finished the game:
Unforseen Consequences indeed.

Damn, I'm gonna miss Eli Vance being in the game.  It's really heartbreaking to see a character that was so distinctive even in HL1 die for good in an episode.  I remember the first time I saw him and immediately recognized who he was supposed to be from HL1, and when he mentioned sending me up in an elevator to get help, I remembered that exact scene from HL1.

Sadly, he's now replaced by that pompous loudmoth Dr. Whatshisname.  A poor trade.

I do like how they kept the credits serious with the ominous music to foreshadow the dark times ahead, and they didn't insert a funny moment after the credits, again to keep the tone of such loss.

Episode 2 is kind of like the Empire Strikes back in a way.  I hope there's some serious ass kicking for episode 3 because I'm really angry at Combine.

In another note, where's Barney in all this?  I would really look forward to an entire episode, or at least a large chunk of one, with Barney as the main companion.  While he's not attractive as Alyx, it'd be like old times back slogging through HL1.  Barney cracking old stories about before and after Black Mesa.  Doesn't seem like Episode 3 would be appropriate to have him in since it'll obviously be set on the Borealis, and the tone will be more serious.  Ah well, here's hoping for Half-Life 3.

You guys got me all freaked out about this boss battle thing, between this thread and the other one.  If I am brand new to the series am I even going to see these boss battles, or is that only for the uber?  Since GH2 is on sale at BB this week, should I just get that instead if I am interested in this game?

Ok about the eye-patch.  I've only played through MGS and about halfway through MGS2.  IIRC, MGS3 takes place before both of those and 3 is where he gets this eye injury.  Why didn't Snake have a patch in 1 and 2 then, but now he does in 4?

You aren't playing the same character in MGS3 (and Portable Ops that you are in MGS1&2.  You are playing Big Boss (the villain of the original Metal Gear and referenced many times in MGS1&2). 

Ah ok.  I must admit the whole MG story confuses me  retard

Ok, I thought it was an injury-patch type thing.  Thanks!

not sure why everyone is that suprised(this isnt the first time i have read a comment like this)...MGS3 was without doubt my favourite of the 3,number 1 second and number 2 third....all good games,but snake eater was my favourite,fixing yourself up instead of just taking rations to get your health up and eating all kinds of crap,it was different and i loved it (and the cutscenes of Eva with here low zipped top and Triumph motorbike were great icon_biggrin)...it was also the longest for me,took about 10-12 hrs,whereas the other two could be finished in 8(all cutscenes watched on both)



EDIT:....it was also the eyepatch..once he got that,it seemed to complete the Snake character

How come Guitar Hero 3 isn't on the list?  I planned on getting that on Sunday for my 360.

I think the ship date is the 28th, which would put it in stores on the 29th (which is next Monday).

Hmmm BestBuy's website has ads for their midnight openings saying you should be there on Saturday night.  Well hopefully they're already in stores and they just have to put them out.  I was hoping to get into this Guitar Hero series on Sunday!

This was definitely an annoying read...

http://www.firingsquad.com/news/newsarticle.asp?searchid=17938

Just because they put it in the EULA doesnt make it right... legal, maybe, but still offensive.

Heck, I remember a long time back, when the EULA for Juno (free mail service)got updated to include the ability for them to use your spare cpu cycles, by requiring you to allow your machine to access the net, and to leave it on, even when you weren't using it. I believe that was the day I swapped my mom over to Netzero, iirc.

In any case, this is definitely disheartening to see. I don't mind the idea of in-game ads, but this is ridiculous. What's next, we reserve the right to scan your emails so we can target our advertisements better? When does it end?

Atomic

PS: If I'm paying for an elite account, do I still have to put up with the in-game ads? Do you still scan my system? Etc.

EXTREMELY annoyed. May be a deal-breaker for me.

Yikes that's pretty freaky!

I was at BestBuy today and they had 30 boxes of Halo Legendary edition on the floor.  They must have pressed a ton.

Utterly unimpressed with the beta so far. Really, completely mediocre so far (admittedly only a few hours in).

The "few" hours in means tons. In my way of thinking when the game is not based on depth of character development and progressive story-line...The first few hours in should really grab a hold of you and want you to play more.


Well the tutorial is incredibly boring and bland, the first couple quests out of the tunnel hub are equally uninteresting, and running around 2004 era graphics in a poorly conceived post-apoc London to shoot the 5-6 incomptent undead slithering around with my incredibly boring weapon just did little for me. Played a bit more today and then uninstalled the beta. Absolutely not for me. I will just play TQ again or something like that if I get in the mood.

+1 that's exactly how I felt when playing the demo.
