12521  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XBLM] Spiderman: Friend or Foe Demo is up on: September 18, 2007, 05:27:15 AM

Just finishing playing the demo.

Not bad but not for $50.00.

I can see myself getting this game when it is about $20-$30.

+1 I'm thinking the same thing.

I just played through the demo for this and yeah it was short, but it seemed pretty cool!  How as the final game, if anyone ever played it?

that log under the stairs had a keycode to get into the room behind the turrets.  nothing more interesting unfortunately.

it's both cool and annoying that cohen was optional to kill or not.  annoying because i missed an upgrade station, and cool because i could have left the freak alone.  i liked that aspect in deus ex and because it wouldn't break the game if you killed someone you weren't supposed to. 

i need to pay better attention to the audio logs as they've mostly been background noise during a fight and i have missed a lot of the details. 

You can play them over again!!!

I like the Halo story/universe.  There, I said it.  Don't worry, I'll show myself to the door.

I like it too!

Check out this link at Kotaku, it's a leak of some of the Halo 3 manual.  There's a couple pages of "The story so far..."

From an article on sfgate.com:

Quote
I asked the Apple people if they had plans to take care of new iPhone buyers who paid $600 for their handset. A spokesman said users can return their iPhones within 14 days but other than that, the company has no official plans to help other recent iPhone buyers.

EDIT:  I think from date of purchase, not right this minute!

I think this is effective immediately.  The apple store shows the new price now and no longer stocks the 4 GB model.

Bestbuy.com still has all versions available for pre-order if you are worried about not getting a copy in-store.

Hey all, I know there was one audio log I missed in the game, it was under a staircase right outside the office of that guy near the area where you make the EMP bomb (some descr huh?).  Does anyone know how you get under that staircase?  I looked forever and could never figure it out.  What did that log say, btw?

Yeah I had to get help on this one too.  There is actually a crawlspace over there that will let you in.  I couldn't really see it due to it being in such a dark area.  I forgot what was on the log itself but it was pretty useless and disappointing. 

Thanks Kevin.  I'll have to go back someday and see if I can find it.

As for Van Damme.....man I used to be such a fan when I was a kid.

You could log into a buddy's Xbox with your gamertag and download all your crap onto it?  I would think they wouldn't allow that.

To actually play MP games on Live you need a gold membership.  You can buy one of those cards, or you can subscribe through the Xbox interface.  I think you can even do it online through Xbox.com.

What i don't understand is why the game makes it so damn easy with no 'death penalty'. At my first big daddy, after using a ton of weaps and kits, i think i just stood in front of the resurrection tube thing and wacked him with the wrench. I probably died 10-15 times.

Of course that's no fun and with the later weapons, i was able to take him down in a few shots.

I watched an interview with some devs and they said they made it like that so you wouldn't be taken out of the narrative when you die, an thus would have less desire to stop playing.  It just loads you right up and you go again.

I heard that it's taking multiple weeks because people are also sending in consoles that are not busted, in order to get a shot at the fixes internally, or maybe even a new console for nothing.

Yikes I just read the review at IGN for this.  I don't have a PS3, but I was wowed by the kiosk demo I saw in CC.  Too bad it's not regarded as well as the Rogue games.  Those were really fun and enjoyable, IMO.

Another photographer here.  I took lots of research pics on the PC version.  Basically everytime I saw a  bad guy, I'd snap a photo of it until it told me that research was complete.  In addition to passive bonuses, you also get some tonics from this.

Hmmm my DVD player has two digital audio outs, and one of them is definitely named Coaxial.  Other being Optical.

I only have Component on my DVD player.  My DVD and stereo also have something called Coaxial?  I'm gonna buy all new wires when we move in 2 weeks.  Thanks for the help guys!

iirc, Coaxial is a form of digital audio.  It's just not the one with the neat bursts of light.

Also, even with a standard definition CRT TV, the difference from the plain yellow video to S-Video is very noticeable.  The first time I started a console after going to S-Video was a definite "Whoa" moment.

And then you'll see it again when you go from S-Video to Component (where the video is split into 3 different wires), and thus when you see Progressive Scan for the first time. And then you'll see it again when you see 1080i/p for the first time. biggrin

I jumped from S-Video to HDMI with 1080p and it was nice  nod

Sorry for the thread Necromancy, but now that I've finished Bioshock, I'm starting up Gears of War (Only had my Xbox for a month).  I had also been holding off on playing until I got an HDTV to play this on.  42" of Gears of War sure is special!

Wowie-wow!  I had never even seen this game in motion, I just had known about it since it was the big Xmas game for MS last year.  Holy hell, this is what I'm talking about.  Nothing major to add to this old discussion, just loving my journey so far!

Here's a neat, post-mortem-type interview with a couple of the team members on Bioshock.

DO NOT watch if you have not finished, as there is some spoilerish content.

Circuit City has the 360 version on sale this week for only $47.99, so if you are looking to pick it up you might as well save $12.   nod

that's only 6-8 bucks per hour of gameplay!

LOL!
