I remember when EB games used to price match, the store you were price matching also had to have their items in stock in order for them to give you that price.

FYI Frys has the orange box for $36.99 until this Tuesday

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.

I believe what he saying, is that the newspaper failed to point out that she was in the middle lane of a highway.  Out of her stupidity, she got killed by oncoming traffic, because she put her own life in danger by entering a highway to save a pet.

They can sell as many copies as they can make. It doesn't change the fact that I think the Halo series is overhyped and overblown suckage. But then again I hated "Titanic" when I saw it opening night, so what do I know?

Have you played Halo 3?

Exactly,  I hated Halo 1 and disliked Halo 2, but halo3 is a blast.

Uhh you can't have it both ways, you won your 1st game the same way (a week later nonetheless)  But the Raiders are starting too look good, but like every year, there will be a self implosion.

After reading this entire thread (which has been interesting), I hope that hating on Halo 3 isn't becoming the "cool" thing to do. Sure, maybe it isn't the perfect game, but some of the comments about perceived negatives with the game make me kind of chuckle when you consider some of the real crap that gets released, that we all end up buying.

I don't hate it, I just don't think it's all that special compared to other FPS games.  It's as if it's the first FPS to have smart AI.  It's not, and Halo 1 and Halo 2, the level design was horrid and repetitious.  I have halo 3 now, but not far enough to determine if it's repetitive.

Well, I just got back from Lake Tahoe this weekend to celebrate our 1 year anniversary, so I stayed away from football until I got home.

Watched the niners take the opening drive, and they looked great. You could tell their play calling was much better from the previous games and didn't look as conservative. They kept up that style, unfortunately, the defense couldn't handle Big Ben nor their special teams and eventually let the game get away from them.

They took Gore out of the game early on, and they mechanically picked away at the Niner's D.

One thing I do have to say and it changed the momentum of the game for the 49ers, was the rediculous call from the refs in regards to Vernon Davis' catch. How in the world can they claim that it was an imcomplete pass. Looks like to me, they didn't know what to do, and just called that incomplete so that nobody can benefit. That's my only complaint of the game. Overall I don't think it would have mattered too much, but I think at that point is when the niners lost it.

I'll agree with your assessment of the particular call. Weak cop out.  Piss off one team or the other, but tell one version of the truth and face the rules committee review about your call later.

The Niners, however, lost the game when they went into the Steeler's half of the field twice and came away with only 6 total points on the scoring opportunities it gave them in the first half, or when they failed to stop a kick returner.  You can even blame how they later chose to use man coverage, a bad matchup for them on the Tight Ends of Pittsburgh.  However, you can't blame that one awkwardly called play.  That play was at best a 7 point swing, not 21.

I take that back, you can blame it, but you're not being honest about the game you watched if you do.  Some Fans do that. 

Someday, the Steelers will win a game and it won't be because the other team sucked or the other team dropped balls or the other team is injured.  Those things happen in the NFL at times.  The good teams win those games despite any of these influences.

I don't recall blaming the game on that call, what I did say, was that they lost their momentum after that.  You're exactly right, they lost the game because they couldn't score a TD during their 3 trips to the red zone.

I thought I was pretty clear on that.  I knew going in that the steelers would win, they have a complete team, compared to the niners.

Well I got it pre-ordered.  It's only going to cost me $25 after the block buster deal and my trade in.  Then I get a $10 gift card to use on a different purchase.  I know I'll get close to full price off of Ebay if I don't like it.
3918  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: GT Tournament [Madden 360] (Round 1 underway) on: September 25, 2007, 01:57:53 AM
Ok looks like only one game has been played.  Come on slackers, CC and I were suprised nobody has played yet, considering I was on vacation and thought we'd be the last to post our scores.

The 49ers started off the game with a fumble on the opening kick off.  I challenged the call and got it reversed.  But that didn't stop me from making turnovers.  The next play, the cowboys took out Frank Gore for the game, leaving Michael Robinson to carry the load.

The game was close during the first half with the 49ers leading 10-7.  The 49ers made an incredible but lucky stop as the last seconds of the 1st half ran down.  With 9 seconds on the clock, Tony Homo, I mean Romo, bootlegged his right to find his Tight End Whitten practically open.  The corner back who was defending the TE went for the INT only to miss, leaving Whitten a clear path to the endzone with half of the 49ers D chasing him.  Out of pure desperation the 49ers made  hail mary of a dive and miraculously tackled Whitten at the 1 yard line keeping him out of the endzone and taking the lead at the half.

After the half, the 49ers extended their lead after an INT.  Each team made some costly INT which kept the game close.  The cowboys manages to tie the game late in the 4th quarter forcing the game to OT.  The 49ers won the toss, and made a costly INT at the 40 yard line which was returned to the SF 15 yard line.  1 play later the cowboys kick the game winning FG, ending the chances of the 49ers to move on.

Cowboys 20 - 49ers 17.

We didn't play ranked, so I don't have the stats.
3919  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Halo 3 reviewed on: September 24, 2007, 12:59:11 PM
So, now I hear that they reuse the same levels.  I hated this in Halo 1.  Halo2 didn't really suffer from it, but it was extremely apparent in Halo1.

I went from now caring, to slightly interested as in trading in Forza 2 at BB for $35 to put towards it, to now, second guessing if I should get it. 

I probably will because it's going to cost $15 after the credit, and I get a $10 gift card for buying it at BB.  I'll probably just sale it or trade it in if I don't like it.

I watched the gamespot video review, and the one thing I noticed is the AI doesn't seem to smart.  There was many instances where they are just sitting around in a corner not even reacting to you.  I hope that's not the case.
