Wow, I'm surprised MGS3 made even 4 million.


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

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?

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!

I wanted to get Conan, but the demo changed my mind.  I'll probably pick it up when it's price gets cut later on.

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!

Yeah I don't understand the 3 hour line-up thing for Halo either.  It's not as if any store you go to isn't going to have copies piled to the ceiling. 

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.

OK, finally got an actually functioning mic, but wasn't there a way to have the mic always on so you don't have to hit a key to talk?

Probably but then every key press and in-game sound will trigger the mic.

Am I the only one that really doesn't mind disc swapping as long as it is only between key points? If it is every 2 minutes like some old adventure games I understand, but if it is twice in a game (e.g. Blue Dragon) then I could care less if a game fits on one disc.

Exactly what I was saying in my earlier post.  I don't mind one bit.  Who cares if it fits on one Blu-ray disc.  It's not going to cost me any more to get a case with 2-3 discs in it.

11691  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: H-Gate London Demo.....Can we talk? on: October 21, 2007, 04:22:48 AM
Tried the demo for a bit and I was very underwhelmed.  I saw some gameplay videos that looked boring and repetetive and the demo felt like just that.  The Wert/Wart joke was fun but the gameplay and look of the game just didn't seem to be what I expected from a team of ex-Blizzard folks.  I'll be passing on this one for sure.

Good choice you are getting a live account right? thumbsup

Yeah, I got a month free with it and if I like it enough, I plan on buying a year.  What's the difference between the silver and gold live accounts?  I've been playing Forza 2 ever since I got home, man, it's awesome!  thumbsup

You can only play online MP with a Gold account.  Silver just lets you browse the marketplace and download stuff.

Hmm I got a Halo 3 branded one (13 total months) from buy.com about a month ago and used the google checkout first time $10 off coupon.  It ended up costing me something like $37 total.

Edit:  $36.11 total.

Here's what they have now.  If you've never used google checkout, your first buy included a $10 off coupon.

EXACTLY! I can't even access my router and I pass the steam connection test too.

Glad to hear it's not just me - now I wonder what we have in common?

One thing I read about on the Steam support site was AVG 7.5 being an issue. I have it - do you?


Nope frown  I don't have any AV installed.

I have a Slipstream 4100 with the latest firmware and a Netgear WPN824v2
with the latest firmware as well.

Hey guys when I first start up TF2 the server list won't refresh.  I have to stop and then start the search again for any servers to appear.  Also, when I click on a server to see details, every single one says server not responding.  Anyone else have this issue?

Yep. The only way around it that I've found is to add the server I want to play on to my favorites list and then it works. Very weird.

If I try to join any server and get the "not responding" error and then exit TF2, my Internet connection quits working and I have to reboot my PC. If I connect to any server on my favorites list, this doesn't happen. VERY weird.

Ok that whole internet connection thing happens to me too.  75% of the time I start TF2, I lose Internet connectivity.

What an awesome game!  I loved everything about it.  When I found the first hand print on the wall I was totally shocked, I had no idea that was coming.  When I saw the fire in level 19 I was like no way, this is it?  Good thing my training came through!  Brilliant ride!  I wondered who the female lead was as well.  It seemed to me that she died in the end scene.

Well I was being cheap guys.  I used Steam to buy Bioshock.  TF2 was $10 cheaper if I ordered from CC.com, so I figured I could wait slywink  I already arrived, too!  Expectd delivery date of 10/29....actual delivery date of 10/18!
