That video to me showed that K&L has the potential to be a majorly bad game. Bad graphics, horrible voice acting from Lynch, awful, dull shooting. Ugh. I could not be more turned off by that video.

The shooting is what really stood out:

1. The guy had a heckuva time hitting anything- which is fine cause they were swerving- but it seemed that even where he did hit it didn't really do much.

2. There's a clip in that vid where he has the cop hanging out the door lined up perfectly and he must get off 3 or 4 shots and nothing happens to the guy.

3. At the end when he throws the grenade at the police cars it goes down the tunnel and nowhere near where the cars were. 

Blech!

Oh and as mentioned above, the lanuage is gratuitious.  Sure, hardened bad guys will speak tough talk, but every other word is just plain wanton.  The guys in HEAT didn't talk like that. slywink

but in pulp fiction they did. 

When I first rented that, I had to take it back to the rental store.  Too much swearing just for the fun of it.

So I hear scratching and assorted sounds right above my head as I'm working in the home office this afternoon. I go outside and investigate but I see nothing. I hear a noise though coming from the vent right outside the office windows. I grab my trusty MagLite, head up into the attic, and see what I can find. I see two squirrels apparently getting it on right over where the office is. I can get to them, but I'm not wearing gloves or carrying, you know, firearms. I close the attic door and head outside to see if I can find where they came in and sure enough I think I may have discovered it. I need to get onto the roof to confirm it but if it is where I suspect then it's easy enough to seal it off.

The trick is on how to get rid of the squirrels themselves. I'm wide open to suggestions here so if you have any ideas then I'd love to hear 'em.

the whole AI standing around while you fight is bugging me.  There's a part in the comcast video where your character is taking on 20 guys, but only 1 or 2 at a time.  He has his back  to the other soldiers, and the soldiers just stands there watching.  I'll keep it on my wish list, but I think I'm going to wait and see if I don't get it for Christmas.

Eagles-Cowboys Sunday Night

Everything else on Sunday leading up to it is just an appetizer before the main course. 

Eagles need to win this game.  Plain and simple their season is on the line.
I've got a good feeling that McNabb will carve up the Dallas D (just any decent QB has done this season) and the Eagles D will finally make some big plays and get some picks against Romo.  Dawkins coming back should be a huge emotional lift for the defense and I'm banking on another Lito Sheppard INT-return TD vs Dallas.

You're right, I was looking at the guy by the bridge and not the one that pops up in the upper left.  I didn't notice it when I was looking for it and probably wouldn't notice it when I was playing.  Not that it's excuseable because of that, but it certainly doesn't scream "terrible game" to me. 

I just don't like enemy spawning.  That's what ruined NOLF 2 for me, and other games.  It's so blatent, they could easily disguise it to where they pop up in a near by room and come out a door or entry way, but instead games like NOLF 2 they would pop up right behind you.

The AI in K&L looked a bit shoddy, they stayed in one place at times, just looked like a game that came out 3-5 years ago.

Game has never looked good for me.  Videos that come out look more and more disappointing.  Plus it's made by IO Interactive  banned

I don't know, I actually enjoyed Freedom Fighters from IO Interactive.  And as far as the video goes, it looks like the guy was just hiding behind the pillar thing after that incendiary grenade went off. 

you can clearly see him pop up, he wasn't even crouching behind anything, it's just poof, "hi, shoot me"

He sent in his warranty from MS.  So my question is, when he exchanges the broken Xbox 360 that he bought from TRU, will the warranty from MS cover the one new one, or does he have to pay $50 again to cover the new xbox
3818  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 Warranty question on: October 23, 2007, 01:01:10 PM
My friend got an xbox360 as an anniversary present about 2 weeks ago.  Friday and Saturday night it started locking up.  He's going to take it back to TRU where he got it.  We tried taking it back last night, but the display door was jammed.  Anyways, he sent in his warranty for the broken xbox360 about a week ago.  If he returns it at TRU for a new one (which they said they would) will that warranty transfer over to the exchanged box?  I told him to write the serial # down for the damaged box just in case.

Quote from: wonderpug on October 08, 2007, 01:29:16 PM

Most of the time it detracts greatly from the game for me, but there are exceptions.  In Forza 2, I like having real tire manufacturers, manufacturer logo laden cars, and real advertisements all over the track.  Likewise, if I played sports games I wouldn't mind having billboards and Adidas logos in the typical places.

Pretty much every other type of in-game advertising I can't stand, and I'd consider not purchasing a game that I knew had it prominently featured.

This crap drives me crazy:



I'm assuming that's crackdown, and based on the demo that I played, that doesn't seem out of place.  It's only annoying when it's out of place, like in BF2142

I don't know if I would call her actions stupid.  Is it stupid to dive into a river to try and save your child?  It's certainly risky, and carries a high risk of death... but some would consider it noble.

So does her ignoring the risk to her life for her dog instead of a child make it any less noble?

If it was her kid who went into the highway, then I wouldn't call her stupid.  If it was her dog or other pet, yes.

Finished the game tonight.  Overall it's the better of the series.  I didn't like halo 1, the level design was horrible, and overall the game wasn't as good as everyone was saying.  Halo2 improved a bit on the level design, but it still was boring.  Halo 3 the level design was awesome (except act Cool  Everything seemed balanced, levels didn't feel repetitious, and overall, I had fun.  I came in expecting I wouldn't like due to the first two games, but it took me by surprise.  However the sound was horrible on my TV.  It might be my set up since I don't have it plugged in my stereo, but during the cutscenes it was really hard to understand everyone except for the human race.  So the story was quite fuzzy, especially when the flying globe dude talks.

The alien levels in half life still sucks more than Act 8 in Halo 3.  Although, it's close.
