Yeah....i would love to be able to play my VC games on the Gamepad. Hope they get that going soon.

One thing I really do love though is being able to browse the internet, go on MiiVerse or the EShop while playing games. Im posting this from the Gamepad while I have Super Mario running in the background! Man, i wish the Vita could do this.
Not to thread hijack ... but you can do that on vita now with 2.0 firmware.
Can flip from game to browser and back ...

Does this one have the last game's feeling of always having your back exposed no matter where you find cover, combined with a spawn system designed to plop enemies directly in said exposed areas?

Yes, absolutely.
I feel like that happens much less than in MW3 maybe because the maps are generally larger?
On ps3, but even with the mild issues, feels like best launch they have done in long time (I.e. party system not broke, etc)

This looks great . . . But any time I try an action-rpg that doesn't have souls in the title
I seem to end up disappointed.  Amalur bored me to death.  Hope this breaks the trend.

I know it's free, but this is getting old. Why is PSN down so much?

I don't know. It doesn't seem to be down THAT much. Only for a few hrs every couple of months for maintenance.
Yeah, I only remember 2 or 3 times it's been down for maint since the . . . troubles.
5  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PSN] Closure on: March 31, 2012, 09:39:57 AM
I tried the (very brief) psn demo and it seems like a pretty solid puzzler. I was apprehensive after the "dark" sections in limbo, but closure handles the mechanic well.  Probably pick it up when my ps3 is back on the grid.

Putting aside the finer points of the argument, is it safe to say that we aren't liable to see major changes in this area during the lifetime of the PS4? If not, I go back to the original question, which was what point is there of being capable of a 4k resolution other than for marketing purposes? Nobody has a tv that can display it, and there won't be any games that use it either.
Sorry guys, I moved yesterday and just caught up and think I explained poorly:
"Also supposedly they are overshooting so they can support 3-d gaming @ 1080p".
Right now the ps3 is capable of outputting a 1080p signal, however it can only render 3d games at 720p.
I don't think their intention with the extra gpu muscle is to output at higher than 1080p resolution but to be able to 'catch up' 3d gaming to the 1080p standard.  I may be very wrong, b/c (after catching up in the thread) many of you are much more informed than me.

Have you guys noticed the increased marketing for DLC at GameStop recently?

As far as the specs go, isn't anything above 1080p pointless aside from having increased overhead for FSAA etc at 1080? Sure, some people play on monitors with higher resolution than that, but the vast majority don't and developers won't support anything higher than that anyway.
I have noticed the dlc prominence.
Also supposedly they are overshooting so they can support 3-d gaming @ 1080p

I can understand getting the bad news out there early to get the negative backlash over with but . . .
You would think after the ps3 launch that they would minimize any potential for bad pr spin: mission failed.
Makes me wonder what's next?  $1000 price @ launch announcement?
If MS$ does not limit the 720 next box the same way . . . Game over.

Makes me nervous on who is doing the Zone of Enders Ports,,if Konami screw them up as well i will be royally pissed
Odds are pretty favorable: most of the ports+HD I've played have been good experiences (re4hd, sly, jak, ico).
This just seems to be the exception so hopefully there is enough of a backlash they get it right next time (and
still patch this too). 
I finished 2 and some of the control glitches (James stops moving) definitely hampered me in some of the
later boss fights.

The voice sync thing does happen, I've noticed.  It usually fixes with an exit and restart, but it's annoying when it happens, for sure.
Happens to me too like once per episode.  Usually I just back it up a few frames (d-pad left 2 or 3 times; enough to make it re-buffer) then I'm good for the rest of the show.
11  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3/360]Silent Hill HD Collection on: March 26, 2012, 03:30:18 AM
I picked this up (ps3) since I never played 2 or 3. 
Playing 2 and just completed the section after the hospital leading
to the historical society, mainly just running through dark streets
with 2/3 enemies nearby and I felt that I nearly locked up
almost 10 times due to frame rate issues.  Amazing that a system
that can run games like uncharted chokes on this port.  Really must
be horribly optimized coding.  Really loving the story so guess I'll suffer through the technical issues.

could also be that when you use the FB 'app' on the PS3 that it automatically sets the PS3 to one of your 'likes' on FB.

Ticket to Ride now has an iPhone version available.
Got it and played several games, very happy so far.  Very polished which is no suprise if you are familiar with days of wonder.  Don't have an iPad but do play the board game.  Well worth the $1.

The lag is getting ridiculous on PS3. I can fire a full clip at a guy and on the kill cam I don't even see a single bullet.
I actually think it has gotten smoother for me on psn the past few days.  I can still play good even with a 3 bar connection, whereas before that meant insta-deaths all game.
18  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty:Modern Warfare 3 on: November 09, 2011, 03:47:48 PM
I absolutely love mw3.  Think they have finally hit the sweet spot
That being said: I'm much worse @ this game than I was @ mw2 and blops.  Seems more like mw1 where going like 15-8 was a great game for me.  I have always run & gunned but I'm really having to make myself be more conservative, make sure I'm aiming around corners, ect. 
I very much agree with the above poster: don't know how much quicker I could die in hardcore when it already feels like insta-death in core.  Maybe I'd die when my opponent just thinks about shooting?
Love all the maps so far too.

So hark/roman:  have you guys found anything yet that you consider worthy of spending a prestige token on?
I was considering getting the stinger out of the gate, just to always have a solid anti-air class ready.  Any suggestions?

wow,maybe people will actually play the single player this time round
Not even dangling the prestige token carrot will entice me to do that.  Any time I would spend on the campaign is time taken away from MP.
Trying to resist the urge to take Tuesday off.

wait, you could prestige in single player?
Rumor is that finishing the mw3 campaign gets you a token.

And pug, I thought ps3 got the tokens too?  Have not seen where it is a 360 only feature.
23  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty:Modern Warfare 3 on: November 01, 2011, 02:18:21 PM
Fourzerotwo confirmed on twitter that if you have tokens the prestige shop will open for you, so you do not have to wait.
24  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty:Modern Warfare 3 on: October 31, 2011, 06:11:57 PM
Just don't think they would be making such a big deal about the tokens from the prior games if we have to wait 80 levels to use them; then again, it might make more sense to play through once and not assume that the weapons are identitical to mw2. What if the acr is nerfed and you just used a prestige token on it right out of the gate?
25  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Batman:Arkham City due this October! on: October 19, 2011, 04:03:08 PM
In addition to being wowed by by the quality and mass of content, I was a total dumb ass due to the lack of hand holding.  Got to my first Titan container, and bats says "need to use explosive gel".  Realized I had not even used a single d-pad gadget yet, not even a batarang.  Might should have done an recent AA replay to be ready.
26  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3 Gaming] Q3/Q4 Purchase Agenda on: September 13, 2011, 03:43:06 PM
Already have ico, dark souls, and mw3 preordered.
Batman, uncharted 3, re4, and payday are definites.
Still considering bf3, silent hill collection, and skyrim, and I'm sure I'll get the new r&c for the kids.

Seems like I've heard a few people saying they're getting this on the PS3 for the better d-pad.  I played the demo on the 360 and didn't have any problems using the analog stick instead of the d-pad.  Was I missing something about the controls? Why would you use the d-pad vs the analog stick?
More precise I guess since he can only move in 4 directions?

My nephews were looking @ my player card and were amazed that I had used every weapon?  People don't realize how fun it can be to try contrary tactics.

Retail plus all the map packs?  $105 USD.
For my group, when you factor how much entertainment it provides, that is still a bargain.
I can spend that in a weekend seeing movies for 4-6 hrs of entertainment.
That same amount on cod provides at least 168 hrs of entertainment, and I don't even play single player.

I just presumed CK meant he was going to rent the game...the damn thieving Pirate Tongue

as for what i put above(that has got quite a few replies since last time i was here),take note that i don't claim to be a great gamer,i just like games,i am pretty sure most of you guys will probably love this game BECAUSE of it being hard...as said i am just getting cold feet,i haven't played Demon Souls but admittedly i pre-ordered this mainly because of the kick ass pre-order package,and i thought it was the best time to try the game  icon_biggrin
You know, demons souls was a hard game, but I still think the difficulty is overrated.  You have to play conservatively, and not rush into an 'over your head' situation.  Most people probably tried to play this like it's dynasty warriors, and that would get you a great helping of frustration and rage quitting.
Edit:  plus you can summon help, if you are struggling with an area.

I don't know how they could possibly do that, because of the diversity of hardware. The on,y thing that makes sense would be thru an emulation layer, which generally carries a pretty big performance penalty, doesn't it?
Surely they could make win8 hardware requirements beefy enough to accommodate it?  Or make sure the installer won't let you use the service if hardware is lacking?

Yeah, this is a real beta, not a demo for sure.
Got home late, downloaded and got started.
First game, got a kill right out of the gate, then immediately kicked to lobby for team killing (I didn't).
After a couple more games, it started running like a slide show, then locked up my ps3 so I went to bed.

Can you still play the game when the sub is over?
Anything you pay $ for while on ps+ is yours even after the sub is over
