Title: The Gaming Postwhoring Thread
Post by: Tuffty on August 07, 2009, 11:29:38 PM
I figured this forum oughta have its own postwhoring thread. Feel free to talk about anything related to gaming that you can't fit anywhere else on the VG forum. News, reviews, previews, memorable gaming experiences, frustrations - all of it is welcome and appreciated.

I'm so close to getting all the achievements for Virtua Fighter 5 now! I've one more arcade to clear in Quest mode and I should clean up the All Rivals and All Emblems achievements as a result. It's only taken me a year and a half to do so  XD

Figured I would give the recently released demo for Batman : Arkham Asylum a test. The videos looked pretty promising and I'm glad to say that I really liked the demo. Swooping down from above unto an unsuspecting enemy for a silent takedown is as great a feeling as it sounds. Only thing that started to grate on me after a time was the slo mo effect that appears everytime you take down the last enemy in a group. Fallout tended to keep that interesting by using different camera angles so it's not quite the same everytime, plus there's more to appreciate what with the blood and guts spilling everywhere. You won't get that from Batman though so it's always someone being knocked out with the same angle used everytime. But a minor niggle on what could be a great game.

My brother just got Prototype the other day and damn is it fun. I been too busy running around killing people to go through the missions. I'm moving forward now so I can have more things open though.

Saikami's post about not beating some games (Mario?) got me thinking about what games I've beaten. I know it's gotta be under fifty. I started counting while Protoype was loading and I started slowing down around 15.

Only ones I can think of

Final Fantasy X
Final Fantasy X-2
Resident Evil 1, 2, 4
Astro Boy
Super Mario World
Mega Man
Mega Man 3
Mega Man 8
Mega Man X
Mega Man X2
Professor Layton and the Curious Village
Metroid Fusion
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow
Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow
Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia
.hack 1
.hack 2
Beyon Good and Evil
Monsters in my Pocket
Call of Duty 3
Call of Duty 4
Gears of War
Gears of War 2
P.N. 03
Tomb Raider (The one after the really shitty one on PS2)

I think I'm out. I had to pull out Monsters in my Pocket I have that few games to count. I mostly played fighting and puzzle games and beating those don't count.

I totally suck at Super Mario Bros games, never passing the 2nd stage cuz I run out of 1UPs :lol:

Never really had a dedicated gaming system, except my PC and that was a cheap piece of shit!!!

Now that I got a DS, Wii, and PC that runs well, I don't got no time to play any LOL

Though, I should try to finish Grand Theft Auto III - Foxy =P

I've been playing a lot of Resident Evil 5 on PS3, it's really fun co-op.
I bought one of those Rateup Keyboard/Mouse adapters so I can use keyboard and mouse instead of the controller cause I suck at using those joystick thingies to aim XD
It's been pretty good although every now and then it has a spaz attack and my character starts running around in circles uncontrollably XD so I have to unplug it and plug it in again to fix it. It can be bad if you're in the middle of a fight XD

I took some pictures today of fen in her Trible Sheva outfit :D

And this is the draw bridge that I accidentally dropped while she was walking across it last week hahaha. It was an accident honest! I just got a bit excited and pressed the release button without thinking.

Hmm.. games I've beaten? I play mostly race games and it's hard to say when you have 'beaten' them  :) I'm quite the Super Mario 3 expert though!

Btw, does anyone know the title of an old NES or maybe SNES game where you have to turn on a fountain? It's been bugging me for years. It's quite a difficult game IIRC and many gamers got stuck on the fountain level..

Oh boy. I lost count on games I've completed, let me get back to you guys about that XD

Trying to play Professional mode on RE5 myself, but it's tough when you don't have a like-minded player with you, and my attempts with the AI have been less than successful. I suppose clearing it would be a lot easier with infinite ammo huh?  :sweatdrop:

50 Cent to appear in Modern Warfare 2
(http://api.ning.com/files/6toPu7JBkdPVcv-VUn1OEM49XmYmlkclqm9MJ6grDLcb*vv1czKtTgbViXPcS7nRudCP8Nhick2qIA1Z4AxKNG2K3M-yd9lz/IMG_0020_res.jpg)
That's right. Word on the street is that classical musician and sensitive artist 50 Cent will be making a cameo appearance in Modern Warfare 2, news which dropped following his visit to Infinity Ward. Despite the image above (pilfered from NeoGAF), it's not been confirmed that any motherf*ckers have stolen Fiddy's crystal skull in the Call of Duty sequel.

50 Cent will be lending his vocal talents to the game's multiplayer, as confirmed by Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling. He'll appear in both the main online mode, and the Special Ops mode, playing "one of the squad voices." I'd quite like to see 50 Cent in the army. At least then his claims of being shot would be impressive instead of vaguely depressing.

Now all Modern Warfare 2 needs is Vin Diesel and we'll have the most perfect game ever created.

Left 4 Dead DLC announced

(http://www.blogcdn.com/www.joystiq.com/media/2009/08/crashcourse_final_580px.jpg)

Valve has announced plans to release a new campaign for the original Left 4 Dead next month, which will be free on PC and cost 560 Microsoft Points (£4.76 / €6.72) on Xbox Live.

Crash Course will work as a traditional co-op campaign, and includes new Survival mode maps, but its "primary goal", according to Valve, is to provide a complete Versus mode experience in just 30 minutes, streamlining the existing approach.

For Versus mode there will be a recharge timer for infected team-mates, and adjusted item-spawn behaviour. It's set in new locations and "bridges the gap between the end of the No Mercy campaign and the beginning of Death Toll", with new locations, new dialogue from the original cast, and an "explosive finale".

Valve had come in for criticism following the announcement of Left 4 Dead 2 at E3, with some fans arguing that it was reneging on its promise to support the first game - and while the announcement may go some way to assuaging their concerns, the fact there's a cost attached on Xbox 360 but not PC will likely raise eyebrows again. We've contacted Valve to ask what's going on with that.

"Since the release of Left 4 Dead last November, the design team has been excited about creating new experiences for this world and allowing players to do the same, by releasing much of our internal toolset, like the Survival Pack and Authoring Tools," Valve boss Gabe Newell said in a statement marking the announcement. "We're working with the fans toward the ongoing entertainment value of the product."

The Crash Course campaign is "targeted for release in September", with Left 4 Dead 2 due out on 17th November.

I think it's pretty impossible to compile a list of games I've beaten, since I've been playing computer/video games for nearly 25 years now. xD

I had literally thousands of games for the C64, probably half as many for Amiga, and on PC... a lot anyway. I was never a big console gamer, but the last games I've beat have mostly been on the DS... Phantom Hourglass, Lock's Quest, Castlevanias, and so on.

It'd be an interesting nostalgia trip to try to create a full list though...
Title: Re: The Gaming Postwhoring Thread
Post by: Wonderboy on August 08, 2009, 07:29:03 PM
Same for me, Stryfe.  :)

It would be quite impossible to list every game I managed to finish or every game I could played, as I touched so many computers and had so many consoles...

The biggest challenge nowadays for me is to finish the games I buy, as I'm feeling quite guilty to spend so much time on RPG for example.

I'm expecting Blazblue for the next week and have seen some Colin McRae Dirt 2's videos : wow, can't wait to have it, I especially love rally games.

I'm totally the same with Daigong. I really really sucks at Mario, all kinds of Mario. I just can't jump at the right time. :(
Even my friend's son beats me up at Mario Kart :lol:
Let's see, games that i've been beating is
- Final Fantasy 7,8,9. Suikoden. Parasite Eve. Legends of Dragoon. Breath of Fire 4.
- Call of Duty 2, Modern Warfare, World at War. Why is that Call of Duty 3 doesn't comes out on PC  :cry:
- Gears of wars, Assassin's creed, Diablo 2, Titan quest, Dungeon Siege 2.
and some mini games  :thumbdown:
and others that i don't remember, it's only a little though

I'm bad at....
beating long story games like oblivion, two worlds, the witchers and stuff..
playing sports games and games that need quick hands like street fighter or tekken.

Does somebody here even play mini games like gamehouse or something...
for this past few years, i just can't access reflexive.com. some country blocking ??  :(

For now, i've been looking forward for Diablo 3, especially after Blizzard making some April fool on their site :angry:

Interesting fact I learned today: On 9th September the Dreamcast will officially be 10 years old. I loved the Dreamcast. Some of the best games I've ever played appeared on that console. I think the best thing about it was that everything was new to me with the DC. By the time I got it as a Christmas present, the PS2 and Xbox were already pretty well established, so when I got it, I had to admit I felt rather underwhelmed. But then I discovered some real hidden gems. Looking at the first ever case of cel shaded graphics in the incredibly hip and funky Jet Set Radio. Living the life of a sky pirate in Skies Of Arcadia. Driving through San Francisco with dynamic day/night cycles in Metropolis Street Racer. And of course, Shenmue. Love that game and will happily pay over the odds for a long awaited sequel. I wasn't so privy to the industry back then so I wasn't spoiled by any previews or reviews on any of the games I played so everything was completely new and I was happy that all of them were such good games. Something which the DC had a lot of. So cheers to the DC! :prayers:

I now have a new gaming frustration, both tied to Left 4 Dead. First of all, if I'm in a corridor and firing at zombies at the other end, DO NOT WALK IN FRONT OF ME OR YOU WILL OBVIOUSLY GET SHOT. More than that, DO NOT THEN BLAME ME FOR INCAPICATING YOU AND VOTE TO KICK ME. Second frustration? If you spend a long time through a campaign on expert, say 1hr 48mins, and 3 people are incapicated when the escape vehicle has arrived, don't escape by yourself in the vehicle. As made evident by other members of the party more vocal than me, you will be thought of as a dick. Which you are.

BTW: RE5 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> L4D

Awww! Can't the two zombie apocalypses coincide in peace? :P I think it's unfair to compare the two personally, the other common factor is zombies. L4D is very much an arcade game with horror elements whereas RE5 is a survival horror with action elements. I think there's a distinction between the two. Both are excellent. And both can properly do you over if you get the wrong people. Played Chapter 5-3 on Professional with someone else and they thought they had the skill to take on Wesker by himself. He didn't. Not even a mic that I could communicate with him. And eventually I ran out of First Aid Sprays and patience to care. On that note, aren't First Aid Sprays useless on Pro mode? I find it much quicker and easier to resusicate someone than the time it takes to get out a spray and use it. Most of the time my partner dies before I get to them, and the restored health is useless because it only takes one hit to lose it all again.

Yeah! Different game mechanics but the premise of horror is basically the same. Y'know the cliche zombie (Majini/Ganado if we're doing RE-speak)... But I do admit I have a bias towards RE, oh, and I've never played L4D (and no desire to. teehee!)

First aid sprays aren't useless in Pro mode, although it may seem like that during the Wesk/Jill 5-3 fight... Wesker and ESPECIALLY Jill have attacks with painfully slow recovery times, making it nearly impossible for a player to heal their partner with the B command.

But! It IS possible to heal instantly if you have the healing item equipped (as opposed to command); I usually have something on my fast equips for quick revive.

Oh and upon restoring health, full health it isn't actually useless (in terms of getting 1 hit ko'd again). Reason being is because if you just resuscitate- the next attack landed on your partners blinking health will prolong the recovery time, making it impossible to heal, whereas with full health, it's back to the base recovery time...

I dunno I haven't done it yet I'm still working on getting my Infinite Ammo Rocket Launcher :p

I've never tried firing at him with a rocket once the fight starts, but doesn't he dodge at the beginning even if you fire right away with a gun? So I'm thinking he'll dodge an even slower rocket....
The only time you can hit him is if his back is turned, or when he's charging up to sprint at you.

And actually, it takes 2 rockets to make wesker retreat, in all modes (pro, vet, etc)- which are also stackable (one rocket to make him hold, and another rocket to fire at the rocket he's holding). The quickest way I've found to beat wesker (with infinite rocket launcher) is:

* when the fight starts, run straight towards jill, have one person restrain her, than have the other do the throw context command, which will knock her out for i believe 30 seconds.
*after jill is knocked out, have one person head straight to the door (the door wesker kicks you through) while the other person (with the rocket launcher) stays away; but READY (i.e launcher equipped and with a good view, preferably a straight view, to the door)
*have the person at the door taunt, as taunting provokes all enemies, including wesker. if the 1st taunt doesnt provoke, keep stacking it. this will initiate the door kicking sequence.
*immediately after the sequence, have the person with the rocket launcher fire at wesker (whom which by the way has his back turned). he should grab the rocket, which opens him up for the 2nd rocket!
*wesker will be brought down to his knees, and all you have to do is wait till he recovers, and  he will take off runnning...

That whole process is less than a minute! Beating wesker without the rocket launcher is a lot more fun though!

Damn, meowchi knows her stuff! I thought a rocket could have been easily dodged by Wesker in 5-3 but well, there you go! And you're right it is more fun to pound Wesker with Chris' fists!

Thanks for the tips meowchi! I understand what you mean, I've had instances where the time from the point of impact to death is practically instant, making resusitation impossible. Guess I'll have to bring a lot more First Aid Sprays or G+R herbs then! And hope my partner of the day does the same.

The animations and graphics are actually the best I've seen! Char creation is so detailed too. Only problem is that it's a total grindfest, being an mmo. Scenery is epic, and flight is pretty fun too.

Ok so still going through my first playthrough of Persona 4 aaaannnddd....

*SPOILER*
[bgcolor=#000000]I'm pretty sure I chose the bad ending. I tried to explain to Yosuke that pushing Namatame into the TV would be a bad thing and that something was missing in the case but I guess I chose an incorrect option during it, as Nanoko survived but was still in the hospital by March, Teddie disappeared, Namatame is tried but can't be convicted, the fog is still set in Inaba and I left everyone in Inaba without things being resolved. Roll credits. No, I'm gonna try again later and see if I can continue with the good ending. But man, when Nanako died? That was so affecting. Really well done by all the voice actors in what could have been an unintentionally funny scene. Atlus really do hire the best voice actors. I don't think Namatame is the killer, he looked too demented towards the end. I wonder just who could it be. One thing's for sure, I am definately not going anywhere near looking up Persona 4 info on the net. It was while looking for a vid on Youtube that I discovered Nanako was going to appear on the Midnight Channel before it happened  :banghead:[/bgcolor]

Also should keep a note of GamesCom in Germany this week. Looks like Fable III was announced and supposedly there's gameplay footage of FFXIV floating about somewhere.

I watch Giantbomb's commentary too and I'm playing through the game! XD They're bound to be ahead of me, I know it, unless they chose the bad ending too that is! Jeff and Vinnies commentary can be hilarious though. I can't see Kanji in game now without forming my own impersonation XD 'GET BENT!' :lol: Would like to watch the vids leading up to where I am, but I want to avoid the user comments at all costs. I read they post spoilers in there even knowing that Jeff and Vinny read the comments section. What dickheads. Last time I saw, they were about to enter the dungeon I was in, ridiculously under-levelled. Kanji was like Lvl 35 or something? :lol:
Title: Re: The Gaming Postwhoring Thread
Post by: thatonezombie on August 20, 2009, 01:58:24 AM
Haha! Giantbomb has Kanji mad under-leveled still. They have joked about it numerous times. Like they would go into the dungeon and they tell the other characters to go level up in a past dungeon  XD

I dont want to spoil it for anyone who is following their adventure, but its madness. But I assume its madness whatever choice you do with during the game. I did not read Tuffty's spoiler because I am committed to watch them play the game.

Oh you Kanji, remember when the whole gang was eating watermelon and he was sprinkling something over his watermelon?  :lol:

BTW, I am a part of the Chie club. Girl kicks tanks.

Post by: Tuffty on August 20, 2009, 02:43:55 AM
haha in that dungeon? I lost so many Homonculus items in there! I dunno why they don't use Teddie more, his amount of SP is the same if not higher than Yukiko's and he has the heavy ice spells that Chie doesn't.

I presume it's the same no matter what. Though from what I've seen, me and those at giantbomb tend to follow similar paths i.e. goody two shoes.

Kanji is just an instant quote machine. :lol: Gotta say I'm a Chie girl myself. She did something for me in the King's Game that I won't forget. Though I've been leaning towards Rise lately. That giggle just makes me smile too.

Yukiko's magic level is the highest of the group. True that Teddie has the higher level ice but Chie can take a hit and she kicks tanks. And eventually Chie will get them, so they might as roll with Chie all the way through.

I like Rise, but damn some of her comments are stupid.

*BIG PERSONA 4 SPOILER*

[bgcolor=#000000]ADACHI?! It's weird because after finding it out, you realise how you didn't question him sooner! Man I quite liked Adachi too, the dopey, learning the ropes detective who couldn't keep his mouth shut. And he was with us most of the time, watching us. I had dinner with him in Dojima's house! :o Still, I'd like to know how and why the Midnight Channel targeted the likes of Yukiko, Kanji, Rise etc. Adachi never targeted them. It must do with the fact they were publicised by the media around those times, it's the only thing connecting them. Perhaps it's something to do with the power Teddie mentioned that's now possessed Adachi?[/bgcolor]

Still, it's most likely the final dungeon now. As much as I want to see what happens, I really don't want this game to end, even at 85+hrs.  :nervous

Is a sequel to Okami in the works?

Quote
In 2006, former Capcom subsidiary Clover Studios released the critically acclaimed PS2 title Okami, or 大神 in Japanese.

The game's title, Okami, is a Japanese pun: Written as 大神 in Japanese kanji, okami means "god", but "okami" written as 狼 means "wolf". The main character of the game is a manifestation of the god Amaterasu in wolf form.

A Capcom trademark has popped up online for "Okamiden" (大神伝) or "The Legend of Okami". With Capcom have Western developer Ready at Dawn porting Okami over to the Wii back in 2008 and given the company's penchant for sequels, this could very well be another Okami — one that won't likely be designed by Okami creator Hideaki Kamiya, who has since left Capcom and now heads up Platinum Games.

Then again, it could be something else entirely.

http://kotaku.com/5345808/is-capcom-working-on-a-new-okami (http://kotaku.com/5345808/is-capcom-working-on-a-new-okami)

Supposedly, Capcom hinted at a 'mind-blowing sequel' on their Twitter page. Here's hoping, cause Okami was spectacular.

Looks like a sweet new Capture The Flag gamemode will be in MW2. Oh and especially look out for the ending 20 secs or so for a sweet new way of killing (though I fear it's overuse by campers) and the best thing they could have done to make MW2's multiplayer already go beyond better than COD4.

Post by: Tuffty on September 06, 2009, 01:46:30 AM
5 times. 5 times this has happened to me now and it always hurts just as bad as the first, except after tonight it's really cut deep. 'No Mercy' is the only campaign in Left 4 Dead that I haven't completed on Expert. Well, I've seen through it, but I've never survived to make it to the chopper in time. Either I die just at the last minute or what hurts right now, being incapicated but teammates run off to the chopper regardless of my predicament.

Tonight I was in a good team, a great team even. Made it all the way to the finale of No Mercy like pros, few friendly fire incidents, always covering each others backs, not even restarting a round, making it to the saferoom in one go. Even had decent camaraderie in the team. Then the finale. First time it went down that by the time the 2nd Tank was killed, 2 others were dead and me and another person were making it to the chopper. Just reached the Helipad until a Smoker grabs my partner and incapicatates him. I know how the guy would feel if I left him like that so I tried to help him, but a Hunter got me at just the last minute.

Second time rolls round, and we all survive, except I'm at very low health and sure enough I'm incapicated by the horde when the chopper's arriving. But the remaining 3 doesn't come to help me. Nobody. The guy I tried to save earlier? Walked right past me, despite me asking for help. And here I thought posting out 2 to cover while one revives me would be sufficient. All got on the chopper and cleared the campaign. "In memory of Tuffty88 *laugh*" I asked them why but all I heard was them gloating about getting their Achievements. I saw the stats, I protected teammates the most times, took least damage, healed other teammates the most. Was it worth it? Doesn't feel like it.

For all of you who like game music, maybe this will interest you.

On Fri 11th and Sa 12th there will be two concerts held in germany called Symphonic Fantasies (http://www.symphonicfantasies.com/) where music from Square-Enix games will be performed. Games include Secret of Mana, Kingdom Hearts, Chrono Trigger/Cross and of course Final Fantasy.
Hiroki Kikuta, Yoko Shimomura, Yasunori Mitsuda and Nobuo Uematsu will be there, too.

Now, what's that got to do with me living on the other side of the planet I hear you ask?
Well, the concert on saturday will be broadcasted live via videostream on the net so everyone can tune in and enjoy.

Thanks for the heads up!

Well it's official. I am a Zombie Genocidest. At least 53,595 zombies killed by me in L4D. I was surprised when I saw it. Guess I've played L4D a lot :lol: :lol:

Was a fan of Forza Motorsport for the first Xbox. Great looking game and despite it being a driving sim, I found it real easy to get into, start driving and start winning races without having to be bogged down with tuning setups, although the option always was available. How fortunate then that Forza Motorsport 3 looks absolutely incredible. (http://www.giantbomb.com/giant-bomb-at-pax-09-forza-motorsport-3-demo/17-1315/) :drool: Look at the designs! Terra sprite from FFVI on my car, OMGASS!

Easy. Though I can't remember who I cleared it with previously so I'm gonna have to do the lot again lol

NEW YORK, Sept 23 (Reuters) - Shares of Electronic Arts Inc (ERTS.O) jumped more than 4 percent to $19.36 on Wednesday on unsubstantiated talk that Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) might be interested in buying the video game publisher, traders said.

"There's talk that Microsoft might be interested in acquiring Electronic Arts. It's unsubstantiated chatter, but it's out there," said Frederic Ruffy, options strategist at WhatsTrading.com in New York.

Interesting. Aside from the occasional sports game, I don't really like EA, so it won't affect me much.

The biggest winner from this would probably be Sega - if EA stops supporting the PS3, then Sega is the next biggest brand in a lot of the categories.

Surely the next biggest developer/publisher after EA is Activision? It's not just Sports games that would be 360 exclusive remember, EA owns properties like Need For Speed, The Sims, and Dead Space. Would mention other properties like Mass Effect and Left 4 Dead but they're exclusive anyway

PS3 would be in a sticky situation if true. Activision also threatened to stop developing games for PS3 as well as I remember.

^ I wouldn't be surprised if Blizzard-Activision is bigger than EA now with their merger and I thought EA publishes Left 4 Dead and Valve holds the IP rights? (Rock Band too with MTV/Harmonix)

Anyway, I don't see anyway that's happening. It would be bad business for both. EA since 4/5 of their revenue is on Wii, PS3, PS2, DS and PSP. Microsoft because they are paying billions for a company that loses money and basically only get the Madden name for the trouble.

Although deep down I think I would love for it to happen because we might see NFL2K and Blitz games again. :w00t:
Title: Re: The Gaming Postwhoring Thread
Post by: Amplifier on September 24, 2009, 11:49:30 AM
I doubt this will happen. EA and Blizz-Activision are competing for the largest 3rd party publisher title. Buying either of them would cost a fortune, and Microsoft would be better suited buying up smaller indie studios. I don't like the idea of big mergers in the first place, either way.

There was a documentary shown last night on the dangers of video games and their addictive habits. And it was exactly the one-sided and ignorant debate I expected about gaming, combined with that insufferable holier-than-thou attitude you so often find in people who don't understand, and have no experience of, the thing that concerns them so much. These people so easily pass judgement on gaming, equating it as a waste of time, but never turn that judgemental eye to their own pastimes. They completely fail to comprehend that gaming can stimulate everything from memory to reactions to problem-solving to tactical thinking to business acumen to historical knowledge to imagination. I'd like to see anyone make the same claims of most television!

And of course a 6yr old kid is going to be pissed if you turn the console off mid-game. He probably spent an hour to reach his stage only to have some ignoramous switch it off, wrecking it for him under the impression it's for his own good. I just feel sorry for the kids who have to live under the parents who have been filled full of fear, ignorance, and misinformation by this shoddy bit of so-called journalism. Any kid whose console gets taken away tonight should repay the favour by taking their parent's television away - for the exact same reasons. Fair's fair, after all.

Best line was in relation to a murder case where a man was tragically murdered over a complicated love triangle where they all shared a vested interest in an Advance Wars MMO rip off:

Using the term "cyberworld" is a complete giveaway on how much the authors understand or researched their subject matter. The murder in many cases is probably related to other underlying issues otherwise this would be happening a lot more often.

This is nothing new. Moral Panics and folk devils. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moral_panic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moral_panic)

On another note, TGS went on this week. I really wish that MGS:Peace Walker was coming to PS3 and 360 rather than PSP. It will be really interesting how to see how the Snake -> Big Boss transition turns out. I think the hero to villain thing is a little cliche but I think it will turn out to be something better than what happened in Star Wars. Tatsunoko vs. Capcom is getting Frank West from Dead Rising, playing that guy looks like a blast!

Been playing FIFA10 all day XD From a gameplay standpoint, it plays really really well, and Manager Mode and Be A Pro looks incredibly deep and addicting to get into. Was schooled in online play 3-0 and 6-0 in my first two matches and as I was about to win a game 3-2, the other player quits at 90mins. Tool. I bet I'm gonna expect a lot of that happening. But I was so pleased when playing the Be A Pro season earlier, and after Obertan passes a lovely through ball to my created player, I run on to score the only winning goal against the Chelsea reserves. Love it. :D

lol at the players on 10v10 online play who think they can run down the full length of the pitch as Pique or Toure and score. Funny in one hand, but moreso incredibly frustrating.

I've been playing Battlefield 2 Complete collection on PC.  I'd always been playing on single player and never able to play on multiplayer.  For the first couple of weeks that was fine.  but afterwards it started getting boring cuz I eventually reached high score and everything, but never improved.  Then I eventually found out that in order to unlock those other kits and awards and ranks, online play is required.  so I tried several time, but always get kicked out within the first minute. some thing having a high "Ping".  what's does that mean and how do I fixed it in order to play online?

Ninja Gaiden 2 is frustrating.

Are you talking about the new Sigma version? I heard they toned down the difficulty for that one. Still a hard game by all accounts. I can tell. Watching some videos of people playing that game can be painful. Not that I would do any better.  :lol:

Ninja Gaiden 2 is frustrating.

This 1000x over. I'm all for hardcore gaming experiences, they should cater to people who like that sort of thing and I'm not a fan for the most part, but NG2 is a different kind of hardcore. I only wish I knew how easy it was to be killed by off-screen projectiles. Doesn't help that the camera is the worst I've seen, flailing about all over the place. The other gripe I had with NG2 on the 360 was that you got all these great looking combos and a plethora of them, but they're only effective when fighting humans. Try inputting a 7 hit combo on one of those werewolves and you're gonna get beat down real quick.

I had one of the best gaming moments in my life yesterday!!! :w00t: :w00t:

Playing online in FIFA10 with some mates. We decided to do 4v4 using our own player created characters and it was 0-0 at the 24th minute. Ball passed to me outside on the left of the box, I did a trick thinking I could get past the defenders. Tuff flicks the ball heel to hell, gets past the defenders, he's in the box, blasts the ball..

[size=8]AHHHHHHHHH HE DOES IT! TUFF SCORES![/size]

XD XD XD

It was the most skillful goal I've scored in my life. I go mad over the headset, my mates were cheering that we were winning but it wasn't until they saw the replay and that skill that they were laughing at it as much as me. Genius.

Just stay in the same room as me when a football match is on and you'll think I am getting laid. :lol:

Thank goodness I had several save files for Persona 4. I "completed" it yesterday and things ended well and I was left satisfied if only slightly disappointed that a few loose ends weren't tied up. So imagine my surprise when I see Giant Bombs endurance run having more episodes than I expected. Turns out there's a good ending, but then there's a true ending as well, which unless I had known what to do, would never have discovered the first time round. And the other save file was before the 'final' boss fight.

So hooray for more Persona 4 goodness :D
Title: Re: The Gaming Postwhoring Thread
Post by: Mucca on October 18, 2009, 03:27:03 PM
^That was one of the few things that bugged me about Persona 4 -- the obtuse ways to get the endings. Without a FAQ of some sort, you're almost guaranteed to not get the best ending (which is the "real" ending). Luckily I figured something was up when my initial game ended, so I checked around and found what I had to do to get the best ending. Thankfully I still had a pre-ending save because, as much as I love the game, I didn't to go back and do another 100+ hours to get a better ending.

I beat Brutal Legend, but the multiplier is </3 and it was supposed to be the highlight of this game? I don't think so.

You can build up an army, but the opponent can always wipe them out in seconds, ALL of them, so you're screwed.

Plus cheap players keep spam building the Fire Baron unit and bum rushing your stage, even if you use a strategy to defeat them that does work, the unit is so cheap to build that they can just send a constant stream of them and just wear you down every time even if you manage to defend against them, since you're so busy defending against the attack you don't have time to rebuild units.

It's partly why I don't like online RTS games, players will always have some strategy to get cheap wins.

I want Forza 3 so much! But with Uni work severly cutting my game time as it is and with other games to keep me occupied, I may have to make Santa aware that I'm interested. Maybe he can also see fit to also get me either Modern Warfare 2, Left 4 Dead 2 or Assassin's Creed 2? I've been a good boy Santa, honest :D

This is pretty much how every attempt to play E.T. goes. Lord knows that's how it was with me, at least.

While on that subject, the worst game I ever played was a game called Excalibur 2555 A.D. for the PS1. Even at 11 yrs old I knew it was a pretty piss poor game. Dull combat, bad music, dialog that sounded like it was recorded in a factory, uninteresting story (still not sure if it ever had one) and worst of all, for a dungeon crawler where fetch quests where necessary to progress through the game, it had no fucking map! You've no idea how much I spent looking for certain items only to trawl my way through the same corridors over and over again. Also looking back on it, even though it was the PS1, you knew things were bad when there was a loading screen for a loading screen.

My worst game was Survival Arts. Now you all can talk about the worst games you've ever played. (http://forum.jphip.com/index.php?topic=21673.0) For a second I included worst experiences, but that's different. It got me thinking about one ofthe worst things that's ever happened to me in a game.

What hapeened in the gae itself wasn't that bad, but what funny 'cause it made me stop playing for a week. When my brother got Metal Gear Solid I liked playing it, but I was terrible at stealth. I probably got spotted everywhere. I made it to the Snow Field and got spotted. I didn't know what to do so I hopped in the truck and got in a box so they couldn't see me. After they went away, I got the cutscene where I was sent back to the beginning of the game because that was the box I used. I had no idea that's why the boxes were labeled. My brother was laughing so hard and I just turned the game off and didn't pick it up until the next week.

Actually no, it's not, 11.10.09 sees the release of Modern Warfare 2. I'm purposefully avoiding all single-player trailers and footage as it's bound to be spoiled from here to kingdom come. I understand there's a new trailer out and I haven't gone searching for it, but I'm sure you can find it in the usual areas. Multiplayer however...

Got Modern Warfare 2 and... :drool: :drool: :drool:

What does everyone else think about [bgcolor=#ffffff]the airport level?[/bgcolor] Multiplayer seems neat infinite. Nothing new over COD4, but the expansion on it is so huge, it's impossible not to get overwhelmed by it. More weapons, more challenges than ever, titles, emblems, upgradeable perks, killstreaks, deathstreaks. Love it.

I've nto got CoD yet as I'm only really itnerested in the multiplayer and my net is too crap for it at the mo. I'm most curious about the new killstreaks though, I heard rumour that it goes higher than 7. What are they and at how many kills do you get 'em?
Title: Re: The Gaming Postwhoring Thread
Post by: Tuffty on November 12, 2009, 09:44:35 PM
^ There's an awful lot more than 3 XD The whole idea now is that you can customise your killstreak loadout. So you're no longer tied down with UAV/Airstrike/Chopper like in MW1. Full list below:

3 Kills -- UAV
4 Kills -- Care Package
4 Kills -- Counter UAV
5 Kills -- Sentry Gun
5 Kills -- Predator Missile
6 Kills -- Precision Airstrike
7 Kills -- Strike
7 Kills -- Attack Heli
8 Kills -- Emergency Airdrop
9 Kills -- Pave Low
9 Kills -- Stealth Bomber
11 Kills -- Chopper Gunner
11 Kills -- AC-130
15 Kills -- EMP
25 Kills -- Tactical Nuke

Yes, nukes. A freaking nuke. So as you can see above, there's a number of perks with the same number of kills, but you can only choose one at a time, so you can't have Chopper Gunner and AC-130 at the same time. All apart from UAV/Care Package/Predator Missile are locked from the start, and you have the option of only choosing one to unlock after every 5 levels or so.

My personal favourite is the care package. You can get stuff like ammo or killstreaks that you haven't unlocked yet available for you to use, so it's a great way of being able to use them even if you don't have the skill to get 11 kills in a row. For sheer killing power, I highly favour the chopper gunner. I swear I counted 12 kills in 30 secs with it. And for sheer spectacle, it has to be the Stealth Bomber. Watching this massive thing soar across the sky and drop bombs by the bucketload is very visually impressive.

On top of this you have Deathstreaks. If you've died around 3 times in a row you can use this as a means of trying to help you out. So Copycat will allow you to copy your last killer's class during loadout. Final Stand is much like Last Stand except you can crawl and use your Primary Weapon. And I think there's martyrdom and a variance on Juggernaut as the remaining ones.

So you probably heard the controversy surrounding the PC version of MW2. How they would not support dedicated servers and PC gamers famously forming a boycott group on Steam. So 2 days on, how is the boycott group standing firm for their beliefs?

I completed Persona 4! :w00t: 100hrs for the true ending but boy was it worth it. I feel sad to know the journey with the investigation team is over and the actual ending was sad to if for altogether different reasons than Persona 3. I can never tell which is the better between the two though. P4 had the best combat system and more relatable characters but that's not to say Persona 3 were lacking in that department either. I felt Persona 3 had the best end villian though.

Regardless of which I think is better, both are some of the finest RPG's if not the finest games I've ever played. So no more about the world of Persona 4, but there's still Persona3:FES to go through (which apparently is another 40+ hrs :o) and Devil Survivor on the DS to keep me going.

Ever had an attraction to a female (or male) gaming character? Course you have, like with anime and TV they're designed in such a way to appeal to people. Nothing wrong with that. This guy though? He's just taken it to the next level :o

Quote
That Nene Anegasaki, she's a charmer. She's also a video game character from extreme dating sim Love Plus, now wedded to a flesh and blood gamer.

The two were married when a man brought his DS along with a copy of Love Plus to a church in Guam. There's no word on honeymoon plans, but the two will be holding a small reception for family, close friends and the internet on November 22nd. (Seriously, there will be a webcam and stuff.)

It just goes to show, the power of Woman has no bounds. Stick her in a digital fortress, simplify her beauty to Nintendo DS rendering limits and give her a shrill, anime voice. Woman will triumph all the same.

I'm playing COD: Modern Warfare 2 on PS3, I bought it yesterday and started playing, I complete the game in recruit level, gonna try the other level later...
Problem is, I thought I'd try to go online and enter my code to "get exclusive access" as what is printed in the booklet.  first I'd thought I would register the game, just in case.  But I can't register it, invalid UPC code, so it says,  it's suppose to be the 12-digit numbers in the lower half of the game box.  I found a 12-digit number right below the barcode.  Didn't work.  Also, I can't even find a spot to type in my code for exclusive access.  I wonder why?  though I saw something like that, but "coming soon."  maybe that is it.  but I'm not sure.  

anyway, can't register my game, can't download "exclusive access".....
anyone having the same problem?

UPDATE: ok, talk with the activision guys, now I register it, just in case.  Still waiting for whatever exclusive access they will release......
btw, is there currently any downloadable content for PS3 version for the games.  I heard the 360 have downloadable map packs with theirs already....  for the PS3, any existing content like that?

Just finished FF VII Crisis Core (after putting it on the back burner for six months). Pretty solid and it does pull on the nostalgia strings a lot. I'm tempted to replay FFVII, but I think I'll pass. I have so many great memories, no point going back to it now when it'll seem dated and all the annoyances will come back too.

Next up for the PSP is finishing either Ratchet and Clank or FF: Tactics.

I've seen 2 videos of the same gameplay section that look drastically different. I've seen the contrasts in the main character's personality, the dialogue, the cutscenes, differences in the environment, even stuff that you could find and collect in one playthrough may not be there in a playthrough. I'd love to play it, that game to me, looks far scarier than throwing any kind of monsters at me, although the monsters in SH always are pretty creepy. and some of those text/voicemail messages I've seen are genuinely sinister.

I am no SF expert, but I find that you have to do it on one fluid motion. The speed in which you do a fireball in one quick action, that same discipline is used for any of the moves. And remember, practice mode is your friend.

http://gizmodo.com/349652/xfps-mouse-and-keyboard-adapter-now-available-for-ps3 (http://gizmodo.com/349652/xfps-mouse-and-keyboard-adapter-now-available-for-ps3)

It's a bit buggy and laggy but if you're not used to using the thumbsticks to aim this is a lot better cause you can at least use your mouse and keyboard it just needs some tweaking to get the sensitivity and stuff right. Also it doesn't work well with non-standard dpi mice. So try and use like a standard old ~400dpi mouse for best control.

Well with the help of a guide (http://www.eventhubs.com/guides/2009/may/04/shortcut-motions-shoryukens-dragon-punches-street-fighter-4/ (http://www.eventhubs.com/guides/2009/may/04/shortcut-motions-shoryukens-dragon-punches-street-fighter-4/)) I managed to figure it out doing the offensive crouch method. Now I can pull off all of Ryu's moves consistently. Just need to get it into muscle memory now.

I hate those beginner shortcuts so f'ing much :lol:
For someone who knows how to do the moves and has been playing for 15 years or more, messing up perfectly executed moves time and time again just because they added shortcut motions for other moves, over and over, ESPECIALLY when if you play any other SF game they come out just fine, is really.. really aggrivating, especially online when it can cause you to lose.

I haven't gamed much over the holidays, but I did manage to finish the first play through of Radiata Stories.  Now I'm going through again and aligning with the other side.  I'm probably half-way through and it still doesn't change the fact the main character is an idiot ^_^;  Ah well, the levels are coming quickly with the Training Device so I should be finished it "soon".  :lol:

On the topic of SFIV - I'd love to see Darkstalkers IV as well. I was just playing some Darkstalkers Chronicles on the PSP, and the characters are much more interesting and likeable and the fighting styles much more varied. (Though to be honest I much prefer the Soul Calibur series anyway.)

Anyway, mixed thoughts on whether to get Bayonetta due to the PS3 performance issues and the squick-factor of some of the torture-porn scenes. Oddly, the game gotten me more interested in trying Heavenly Sword - being roughly similar but with a visual style more in tune with my tastes. I won't be getting either until I finish Uncharted 2 and Assassin's Creed 2 though.

I can feel Forza 3, slowly but surely, creeping it's way into my life. I'm thinking about all the events you can go on and the tracks yet to be taken, the designs I could buy on the storefront. I bought some great Kill Bill/Persona/Final Fantasy designs for cars I don't even have yet. Some of the designs people have made are absolutely crazy, the level of detail they can get with those basic shapes. Unreal. I mean just look  :shocked:

(http://img64.imageshack.us/img64/9762/killbillm1.jpg) (http://img64.imageshack.us/i/killbillm1.jpg/)

The only thing missing from the game is a night track set in Tokyo like it had for Forza 1 and it would be complete!

Also, I found myself smiling when I saw one of the AI drivers had the name A.Takahashi. Is one of the developers a MM fan or pure coincidence? :lol: Either way, I like the idea of Takitty in a racing suit  :wub:

Producer Says Metal Gear Solid Movie Won't Be Happening

I'm sorry to have to report this, especially for those who are big fans of the video game, but it looks like a Metal Gear Solid movie won't be happening for a long time. Collider caught up with producer Michael De Luca recently and asked him about the status of the Metal Gear Solid movie. Unfortunately De Luca didn't have any good news. "I don't think it's going to move forward because I got the sense that there may not be enough of a coordinated will at this point on the side of certain parties to see a movie get made." As in, Konami, the creator of the game, isn't that interested in any of Sony's ideas. Maybe it's for the better?

De Luca goes on to explain why exactly he thinks Konami isn't interested in making a movie right now. "The video game companies are very protective of their property and there are certain things a studio requires freedom-wise to market and distribute a movie effectively in a global marketplace and sometimes getting those two things to match up is really hard. And in the case of Metal Gear Solid, the agendas just… not because the parties weren't amicable, it was just kind of impossible to get the agendas to match up."

And you know what, I'm fine with Konami saying no to this, at least until they are ready to make it. Video game movies aren't in their prime right now, and I'm certain a MGS movie wouldn't live up to any of the games, so why make one if we know it's going to suck? I'd rather wait until video game movies pick up and they can make a proper MGS movie. We first wrote about a Metal Gear Solid movie way back in 2007 and followed that up in 2008 with an article where De Luca said that they were looking at having Kurt Wimmer write a script. But with this update today, it looks like we can forget about a MGS movie for the time being.

Not really surprised. Hideo Kojima seems like the sort that wouldn't want people messing with his baby, and they'd need to try to make the storyline make at least some sense for a movie to be successful.
Title: Re: The Gaming Postwhoring Thread
Post by: Tuffty on January 11, 2010, 08:06:50 PM
Thing is you couldn't even make a movie on the most popular game of the series, Metal Gear Solid 1, as it already has a lot of back history that the audience wouldn't be aware of and which you couldn't possibly cover adequately within a 2hr time frame whilst you also have to dedicate more time to the main narrative. As a game it's not a problem as you're not expected to playthough the whole story in a 2hr period so you have more time to flesh the narrative out a bit and offer information to the player which they can catch up to in their own time.

So yeh, I don't see MGS working as a movie unless you make some massive cutbacks to the story and shorten it up a bit, which wouldn't please the MGS fans, which in turn alienates your target demographic before you even release the movie, and frankly gamers have had enough of having game franchises butchered in their transistion to the silver screen, even if the adaptations are of fighting games which don't have the greatest narrative to begin with.

No! No! NO! There are way too many games I want at the minute that are coming out soon, I can't have another one added to the pile, especially when it's an RPG.

Resonance of Fate (a.k.a. End Of Eternity in Japan) may elicit a few groans and :roll: from even the most ardent JRPG enthusiast if you just heard the name of the game alone, but it actually looks remarkably different from what you'd expect and looks incredibly stylish. I'll say no more except to link you to gameplay footage of the demo in which you can see the steampunk setting and the awesome looking battle system yourselves:

Warner Brothers Interested in a New Mortal Kombat Remake

Hollywood has been going back to the well again and again with adaptations/remakes galore, however their focus has mostly been in film and books/graphic novels. But don't think for one second that the industry has forgotten about video games passed as Bloody-Disgusting is reporting that Warner Bros is apparently keen on the idea of remaking Mortal Kombat, the fighting/action film based on the popular 1992 video game. Writer Oren Uziel (whose script Shimmer Lake appeared on the lower portion of the 2009 Black List) is in talks to write. And if we have to endure it again, then there better be some damn bloody fatalities this time.

The video game franchise focused on a global event bringing together an international selection of the best fighters to compete in the tournament known as Mortal Kombat. Unlike any other tournament though, magical powers and sorcery faced off against brute strength in a fight to save the world from the evil villains of Outworld. I remember as a kid being ridiculously excited for a Mortal Kombat movie, but oh how terrible both installments of that series were. Nowadays, with Mortal Kombat somewhat faded out of the limelight, I'm not sure if there's a big enough audience to sustain a remake. We'll let you know if we hear more news.

I'm so glad I already have Final Fantasy XIII because it seems Resonance of Fate will be released in March, the same month as FFXIII.
From what I heard that was one of the reasons SquareEnix didn't want to publish the game, (if you don't knot the game is by Tri-Ace which is a studio owned by SquareEnix) and SEGA wanted to publish the game.

I couldn't find this posted anywhere but flOw is free for download on the PS3 store. It's great if you've never played it before. Anyway, thought some of you guys would like to know.

EDIT: Thought I should clarify that I think it's today only (at least) and so far, it's only been confirmed for the North American store.

I heard there was a problem where if you save at a certain point at greed before the rotating cogs, the lever will break and you won't be able to continue. There was some stuff about random insta-deaths falling through geometry after cut scenes too. Just a glitch ridden game I suppose.

Been playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer online on the PS3.  really addicting, if ur the shooting game type. 

question:  today, when playing, I picked up a gun on the floor.  to my surprise, it was equipped with over 300+ ammo, fyi it's a ACR assault rifle. then again when I picked up a M4A1, using scavenger perk, I picked up over 300+ ammo as well.  I never could get my ammo count that high, why are these gun different?  is there something I don't know.  using the scavenger perk with my ACR, most I could get is  180 max ammo

^Maybe the gun your opponent used also had the "Extended Mags" attachment?
you'know, one of the attachments that you get when completing challenges.
Title: Re: The Gaming Postwhoring Thread
Post by: Tuffty on February 21, 2010, 11:01:59 AM
Definately sounds like the extended mags attachment was put on those weapons, it's the only way to get the ammo count that way. At least, that's what I think, as getting the extended mags is so tough for me. Something like 40 kills by bullet penetration through objects? I'd lost patience real easy trying to get this, it would take me forever as I try to get the cleanest shots possible. Besides, I usually tend to die before my ammo count runs out anyway so it would be a fairly useless attachment XD

SEGA manages to piss everyone else with their western release of Yakuza 3. They've edited the game to remove things that wouldn't bear must relevance or in their words, "make much sense" to a Western audience like trivia questions on Japanese history which is a bit of a let down but nothing major. But then they've said that they've cut out the hostess bars from the game. Considering how managing your own hostess girl and visiting the bars is apparently a big draw for the game, or at least it certainly seems like it when it's advertised in your trailers, it seems like a big letdown. It's a pretty weird decision to be honest because one of the things I think many people like about the Yakuza games, is just how authentic to modern day Japanese culture it is, and it only goes to alienate the core demographic here in the West who aren't cultural idiots and have at least some degree of interest in Japanese culture. It's made all the more strange when you realise that hostess bars were present in the western releases of Yakuza 1 & 2 no problem.

It would be made all the more terrible if SEGA made the hostess bars available as priced DLC :lol: And it's just as well they didn't do it for Yakuza 4, otherwise I wouldn't get to get my freak on with a digital Rio! XD
Title: Re: The Gaming Postwhoring Thread
Post by: winner on February 27, 2010, 01:13:26 PM
That's pretty stupid.
The hostess girl sidequest was just a dress-up game.
And the visiting bars sidequest was just multiple choice questions like what do you like to eat? or what facial feature of me do you find charming?
C'mon, how borderline is that?!

I guess Sega just thinks acts like eating and wearing clothes can not be comprehended by western gamers. :panic:
It would be even more strange if they remove these sidequests but keep the karaoke part!

Haha, I just picked up Deadly Premonition today, and it's damn hilarious. Destructoid gave it a 10 (while Heavy Rain only got a 7 from them), prompting a shitstorm of angry fan letters. So the dude who reviewed both games replied with this article (http://www.destructoid.com/deadly-premonition-is-blatantly-better-than-heavy-rain-165288.phtml).

Activision made a press release to say that they're pretty much milking the Call of Duty franchise for all it's worth. Not to those exact words mind you, but they may as well have. They smoothed over the announcement they fired the two head honchos of Infinity Ward, for reasons unknown, by listing off what to expect from the franchise in the near future. Two DLC map packs for MW2, another game made by Treyarch, released this year, another game in 2011, a MMO style COD game with users paying a monthly fee to pay, and another game that will supposedly "extend to the action-adventure genre". Or as Giant Bomb lovingly puts it, "they're making God of Warfare?" :lol:

Like, I understand Activision's a business and they gotta make money but damn, between this and Guitar Hero it just seems like overkill.

**EDIT**

Well I was getting annoyed with the sound certain discs make when they are in the 360. Mass Effect 2 and Bayonetta sounded like a jet enging taking off, whilst Forza 3 was so bad I had to install it to HDD otherwise the sound of the disc spinning would cause more noise than the car engine. My brother suggested lying the 360 horizontally as opposed to standing upright. I figured I'd try it just to humour him and what do you know, the discs sound nowhere near as noisy as they did before.

So take note kids if you have a 360, don't set it upright...

I still don't understand why Sega doesn't delay Yakuza till April or May so they can finish the localization completely and it can get the proper spotlight it deserves rather than releasing it smack dab between FF13 and God of War (truthfully it should have come out this time last year). They always seem release them a year late and buried in a bunch of big releases. :smhid

Just when you thought Activision were the worst publishers in the world, EA announces the idea of introducting paid-for demos (http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/ea-to-release-paid-dlc-before-boxed-games_0)

Quote
EA intends to release large, paid-for demos in an effort to measure a game's popularity before release. If enough copies are sold then the publisher will confidently produce full-scale boxed products for shops.

That's what analyst-supreme Michael Pachter said he was told by Visceral boss Nick Earl last week.

"Mr. Earl revealed a strategy to release premium downloadable content (PDLC) as a product for sale prior to the release of a packaged product," Pachter, who keeps an eye on the games industry for Wedbush Morgan, wrote in a note to investors (reported by GamesIndustry.biz).

"The PDLC [premium downloadable content] would be sold for $10 or $15 through Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, and would essentially be a very long game demo, along the lines of 2009's Battlefield 1943. A full-blown packaged game would follow shortly after the release of the PDLC, bearing a full retail price.

"Mr. Earl believes that the release of the PDLC first limits the risk of completing and marketing the full packaged version, and serves as a low-cost marketing tool," he added.

Surely the idea of a demo is for the company to try and sell the game to us. If most demo's have a 'Not representative of final product' disclaimer, then how can they expect us to pay money for something that's essentially unfinished? Basically they are going to be asking us to pay to do something that they usually have to pay people to do for them. (bug testing, play testing and market research).

Title: Re: The Gaming Postwhoring Thread
Post by: Asmodai on March 22, 2010, 11:28:26 PM
I wonder if the demo would include a discount off the final game.

(i.e. The demo for Game A is $15, but if you buy Game A from the online store when you already own the demo, you get a $15 discount off the final price.)
Title: Re: The Gaming Postwhoring Thread
Post by: winner on March 22, 2010, 11:50:33 PM
To me, demos are good for 2 things only. Testing if it works on my PC specs, and seeing if it's fun.
Since I don't play PC games much anymore, point 1 doesn't matter.
For point 2, I'll know if I had fun with only 1 small stage/mission. There's no need to give me 15-20% of the game for a price, it'll just lessen the experience with the full game.

And it just took away any remaining interest I had in buying C&C4.
Just checked and it got so many bad reviews. And the addition of necessary constant-online DRM checking, EA is just being stupid.
Next they might make games with only 640x480 resolution, and ask a price for unlocking higher resolutions or something.

It's so sad Bioware are stuck with such idiots. Otherwise I wouldn't even care.

That's the only way I can think that it would work. But what if you pay $15 and find you didn't like the demo at all?

Here's something that makes me partly mad, but mostly makes me laugh at the sheer ignorance on display, right from the get go. A talk show here in the UK had this age-old tired debate on violent video games (with great examples like Call of Duty 2 and Modern Warfare) and children's access to them and well, despite the best efforts of the game expert, he was very much a punching bag by everyone on the show, including the audience

"Video games promote hatred, violence and racism" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ryH2WemACIM#)

The most lols comes from the woman, relentlessly harping on about 'a study in America shows...'. What study? Who wrote it? Is it verified? Accurate? I mean these are comments on how games affect the minds of young people coming from a Hollyoaks actor, possibly the most vapourous pile of mind numbing screenshite ever to be broadcast.

Had to feel for the game expert though when he had to try and defend Modern Warfare 2. It's like trying to defend the artistic merits of Die Hard.

I don't download demos as it is. However, people wouldn't bother downloading demos if they had to pay for them. In my opinion, they cease to be demos if paid for.

Along the same lines as the demo's thing. It's kinda annoying when I want to try a demo but it's only available to Gold members (or Qore exclusive whatever). Kinda defeats the whole aim of a demo.

Anyone hear about the new Nintendo console? The DSs successor.

To Whom It May Concern:
Re: Launch of New Portable Game Machine

Nintendo Co., Ltd. (Minami-ward of Kyoto-city, President Satoru Iwata) will launch "Nintendo 3DS"(temp) during the fiscal year ending March 2011, on which games can be enjoyed with 3D effects without the need for any special glasses.

"Nintendo 3DS"(temp) is going to be the new portable game machine to succeed "Nintendo DS series", whose cumulative consolidated sales from Nintendo amounted to 125million units as of the end of December 2009, and will include backward compatibility so that the software for Nintendo DS series, including the ones for Nintendo DSi, can also be enjoyed.

We are planning to announce additional details at E3 show, which is scheduled to be held from June 15, 2010 at Los Angeles in the U.S.

Another Update: speculation (not confirmation) from Nikkei, courtesy of neo2046:

Best news I've heard all week! A new Persona game is being made! :w00t: :w00t:

Quote
Shocking, huh? The series, however, could have some interesting tweaks in store.

Katsura Hashino's last two previous credits were as director and producer of PS2 role-playing games Persona 3 and Persona 4. In a recent interview with Japanese magazine Dengeki PlayStation, Hashino stated, "We are preparing to start work on the next Persona."

"I want to add things that are being expected of the series," Hashino added. "I also want to change things that can be changed within those boundaries."

In August 2009, Sony's cell phone site listed Atlus staffer Shoji Meguro as the producer of Persona 5. There have been rumors for some time that the game is coming to the PS3. Persona 4 was released on the PlayStation 2.

AHHHHHH!! WAAA-ATATATATATATATATATATATATATATATATATATATATAT....

Ahem. Excuse me. What I meant to say was, here's a playthrough of the 1st stage of the recently released Fist Of The North Star game, looking set to overthrow Yakuza 4 on top of the weekly chart.

And if you see these videos, then you're already dead

【北斗無雙】傳說篇第一章.拳四郎~Game Play影片 -3 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ShKWwl8yns#)

It's essentially Dynasty Warriors in the FOTN universe. Complete with rather dull repetitive combat (at least at this stage) and non existant enemy AI. Ideally, a FOTN game should have a combo system and a hit counter. I'd just love to pull off that special move from the 2nd vid onwards, I really hope you have to do rapid button presses when you activate it. That would be amazing :D

I already like Peace Walker's music more than MGS4. The title song is up to the metal gear standard. Metal gear music should make me pump up or shed a tear. Not make me want to slit my wrists like Love Theme in 4.

This. No matter what the game, even a budget game like Deadly Premonition where everything's not up to a shiny level of polish, Vinny tries to see the positive side out of it. He's pretty much the face behind Giant Bomb's claims that it doesn't take reporting on videogames too seriously. Also, he looks exactly as I imagined he would before I saw him XD

Oh man, I can tell this endurance run is going to be great. I can see David Lynch/Twin Peaks references aplenty. The female sheriff looks uncanny to Naomi Watts. And that whistling song you hear in light hearted cutscenes. Legendary.

I must find/make a ring tone.

The weird part is, the scenes they use it in aren't even light hearted. They'll be talking about some grizzly murder at the scene and the whistling in the background makes everything seem all right.  :)

and I guess it used to be even more like Twin Peaks when they first showed it but they toned it down because of the legal issues.

If Itagaki (creator of the DOA games) ever saw real boobs up close, he'd be freaking out over how wrong his boobie physics were in game :lol:

Interesting fact: Itagaki is married and has a 12 year old daughter. :P2

Think my worst might have been 30-9 and the best has been 30-1. More than that though, as I came to that realisation last night when playing it, a user joins the game called DoctorJessica! XD

Just thought I should let you know for all you Xbox users, Red Dead Redemption are doing a promotion for the game where, if you download the Multiplayer Free Roam trailer from the Xbox Live Marketplace, you can get free 400 MS points and a token to a free Red Dead theme.

Quote
Free stuff: something everyone loves!  In a promotional deal for Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption, Microsoft is holding a lottery for 400 free Microsoft Points.  To qualify for the raffle, all you have to do is download the Gameplay Series: Multiplayer Free Roam trailer from Xbox Live between now and May 10.  You basically have the chance to be paid to watch a video game trailer; who can argue with that?

While the free points are limited to 5,000 winners, everyone who enters will receive an exclusive Rockstar Theme for their dashboard, so even the losers win!  The tokens for both the points and the theme will be sent via e-mail 4-6 weeks after the promotion period ends and will not expire until the end of the year.  So check out the new trailer and hopefully get yourself some free virtual money.

Source (http://beefjack.com/blog/game-blog/news/microsoft-points-giveaway-for-red-dead-redemption-promotion/)

Hope I win, that could be used to go towards MW2's Stimulus package. Maybe. I'll have to win it first of course. Red Dead Redemption continues to look awesome btw.

^Looks like the RDR promo is different in each country.
On the german marketplace it says you get the free rockstar theme and a coupon to dl the movie "The Wild Bunch" (limited to 10.729), sadly no mention of winning MS Points. Also the coupons will already expire on June 30th, so depending on when you get your coupons sent, you have only 2-4 weeks to use them!
I'd rather have the chance to win points instead of a movie I'm not interesseted in  :(

For the first time in a long while I've been the target of some pre-pubescent on Modern Warfare 2. Kept calling me 'gay' and ridiculing me for a negative K/D ratio. Oh how I enjoyed being on the other team and killing him. And I really enjoyed it for the next 3 games when he was the one ending up with negative K/D ratio. I could never be offended by someone who sounds like they should be watching Ben 10 rather than play an 18 rated game.

Played Tales Of Vesperia after a long-ass time. Partly because of Uni work and many other games on the go, but also because I thought I was approaching the end. The story certainly hyped it up to be. So I figured I may as well complete it when what do you know? It's not over at all :w00t: So I'm gonna try and get more involved with that again.

Anyone playing Nier? Apparently the story is very good and apparently the soundtrack is exceptional. Combat looks just a tad repetitive though, although admittedly it was at the beginning of the game and as it's an action RPG it's probably a slow burner. Getting average critic reviews but apparently those who have played it call it a cult classic.

Nier Trailer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lClPqTY9QJU#ws)

I'm interested in it if only because of the teaser below, where you hear Rise from Persona 4 being very pissed off :lol: :lol:

Not yet, but I'm planning to get it!
Have the soundtrack here but haven't listened yet.
When I saw the first trailer I wasn't interested at all and the game vanished from my radar, but a few weeks ago my interest came back when purely out of boredom I read a really promising preview of the game.
It's got all the stuff to make it interesting for me.
The big minus for most reviews I've read so far are the outdated graphics, but I have no problem with that, since I'm more into story, characters, atmosphere and of that the game seems to have just the right mixture.

By the way the voice actress that does Kaine is the same as Serah in FF13!!!
Quite the change of tone  XD

My word, the opening cinematic for the new POP game is well done but that is one hideously ugly character model for the Prince. (http://www.giantbomb.com/prince-of-persia-the-forgotten-sands-intro-movie/17-2449/)

I agree totally on the character model. It's looks crappy. I don't want to sound like a lady, but if it were to use that horrible thing, they should've have gone for  Jake Gyllenhaal which surprisingly looks really good as prince.
And since the game comes at the same time as the movie, why not ?

Let's hope there's a skin to make him look better, maybe like the prince from the last game.

Post by: Tuffty on May 09, 2010, 02:40:09 AM
It's weird too cause they're using the same prince from the sands of time trilogy, same voice actor and everything, and yet the character model looks nothing like the swuave rogue from the first game. Doesn't even look middle eastern for a start!

Looks like nobody has mentioned this so far but a bunch of indie game developers have gotten together to do a bundle sale for charity. 5 Games.

-World of Goo
-Aquaria
-Gish
-Lugaru
-Penumbra

The games work on: Windows, Mac and Linux.

Best part: You can set your own price!! Pay as little was 0.01 USD if you want! You can choose to have your money go to charity or to the indie developers in whatever proportion you want.

I haven't tried all the games yet but I've heard good things about World of Goo. I'm really impressed with the production values of Aquaria. It's feels kind of like metroid.

^ Wow, I don't even play the games but even I think it's ridiculous that Street Fighter's not even on that list. And while I like the games, Kingdom Hearts is above Final Fantasy in terms of popularity? And I don't understand how you could be so broad (Tom Clancy's) but then include just a single entry in the series (Lego Batman)? Saint's Row above Diablo?

I just think that 13,000 participants is too small in scope.

EA's really going for the juggular on the second hand game market

Quote
EA Sports is going after the used game market.

Starting with the release of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the publisher will introduce a new Online Pass, a one-time registration code included with each brand new copy of the game. The code allows players to access "online services, features and bonus content."

Those who purchase the game used can buy an Online Pass for $10 or sign up for a free 7-day trial. The pass will be implemented for NCAA Football 11, NHL 11. Madden NFL 11, NBA 11, FIFA 11, and EA Sports MMA as well. The pass offers different features for each title, however, players will not have access to basic multiplayer features if purchased used.

"You will be unable to play multiplayer online game modes or use your downloaded content in online game modes," EA says. Online leagues, dynasty and franchise modes are also only available with the Online Pass. The break down for each title can be seen on the publisher's official website.

"This is an important inflection point in our business because it allows us to accelerate our commitment to enhance premium online services to the entire robust EA SPORTS online community," said Peter Moore, President of EA SPORTS.

Despite being the leader in used game sales, retailer GameStop, which acknowledged it plans to focus on digital content in the future, supports Electronic Arts' new direction.

"GameStop is excited to partner with such a forward-thinking publisher as Electronic Arts," said Dan DeMatteo, Chief Executive Officer of GameStop Corp. "This relationship allows us to capitalize on our investments to market and sell downloadable content online, as well as through our network of stores worldwide."

http://uk.xbox360.ign.com/articles/108/1088621p1.html (http://uk.xbox360.ign.com/articles/108/1088621p1.html)

CD keys for console games? It's like the gaming industry is working it's way backwards :lol: I don't normally buy second hand games to be fair but I certainly can't afford every £40-50 new game at RRP. For some people, they have to wait a while and trade in games they own before buying the game they want second hand so why should they be forced out? Surely any grudge EA has is against the retailers for encouraging the second hand market, so why should their consumers be punished?

Just an update. The Humble Indie Bundle has managed to raise over a million USD in about 7 days with over 330k going to charity. Several developers have decided to open-source their game engines (looks like they will retain copyright over music, levels, graphics etc) and the bundle deal itself has been extended. Get it while you still can. Though I'm sure that they will try this again after the huge turnout.  :)

^ Endurance Run BR - Episode 30 (http://www.giantbomb.com/endurance-run-deadly-premonition-part-br-30/17-2479/). Personally prefering Vinnie's and Jeff's endurance run though. I think Brad and Ryan made the mistake of reading viewer's comments. Brad's already mentioned that someone spoiled the ending for him and they're listening to viewer's on how to get the better weapons and items in the game. But the appeal behind these endurance runs, or in any playthrough for that matter, is in seeing the reaction from them as these story events unfold or when they find that sweet new weapon or item as it's all new to them. You know, the way games are meant to be played? If they know where to go and what they're getting from these quests as a result then it removes the element of surprise for them and they wouldn't be as stoked to get them, which in turn ruins my enjoyment.

Vinny and Jeff are playing it like they should, totally blind and not knowing what to expect next. I mean they could have got that radio ages ago, but I can't wait to see what their reaction will be if they should find it :lol: Also they're generally just mucking about more (like shooting the explosive barell near the dog, or peaking in Thomas' window XD)

And now I found out there's DLC for it.
But when I bought my 360 I swore to the gods of videogameing I'd never ever be tempted to downoad pay content, never ever!
But my love for Nier is so pure and wholesome, I think I have to break my oath (and maybe for those FF13 Avatar outfits, too) XD


In other news, I'm curious what this game will be like, the trailers are freaky cool so far.

Oooh details details! I'm curious to know what's so good about it. Critic reviews have been pretty average but anytime I've read player comments they talk about how much they love it without ever going into much details about what makes it special.

^ I don't know really  XD
I'm still not very far into it I guess, I have Kaine and Weiss in my party and now I'm in a dessert temple.

It's just the small things that sum up into a enjoyable perfect package for me!

- the whole post apocalyptic setting and atmosphere
- the characters and their interaction (the small conversations that occur from time to time are just pure gold!) also the voice acting is very good imho
- the whole retro feeling with the switching into 2-D perspective when you enter houses or on some other occassions)
- some of the bosses are pretty retro, too!
- the missions, till now it's just bring&fetch and run around alot, but for me it's still fun (but since their optional - if you don't like them, don't do them)
- the simple controlls
- Weiss  XD
- Kaine  :w00t:
- Farming and Fishing (also optional), all very simple but I like it (I suck at fishing, all I fetch is see weed, waterplants, empty cans and pieces of wood, but it's still fun and I can't wait for the moment I pull my first real fish out of the water ^^)
- slaying innocent sheep, goats, deer etc.
- the checkpoint and endless continue's, when you die doesn't mean you have to start from your last save but instead most of the time you continue from exactly where you died, you loose a little health, that's it
- last but not least THE MUSIC (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R5mPCthvieI#ws)


For now the story is still more light hearted, I can't wait till the REAL drama begins!

I saw/read the reviews and most of them have issues with the outdated graphics (no prob for me really) or the characters/story, which is purely a matter of taste imho, or the whole mixture of genres ("the game can't decide if it's rpg, jump&run, farming sim etc.")

If you have any questions, feel free to ask, I'm happy to gush about my new found love XD

Thanks coachie! There's quite a few games on my radar and Nier's definately one of them. A while back I found this while trying to find the supposedly stellar soundtrack and loved it straight away

NieR RepliCant - Kaine Theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fu2NC88TYjI#)

This looks interesting, a game from the Devil May Cry designer with possibly one of the weirdest names I've heard. This is El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, and it's pretty graphically striking in a minimalist way. Very pretty

Gaming likened to cocaine addiction (http://www.mcvuk.com/news/39153/Gaming-likened-to-cocaine-addiction)

My favourite line?

Quote
“Spending two hours on a game station is equivalent to taking a line of cocaine in the high it produces"

Really? I've never taken any drugs so I can't say for sure, but does cocaine have a similar effect to videogames in that, you get bored of playing after a while and decide to do something else instead?

Not saying that the issue of addiction shouldn't be explored, but the researcher is comparing one thing they have never done with another thing they have never done.. :banghead:

Finally got Final Fantasy XIII. Or rather thanks to a kind friend I'm borrowing it for awhile with the collector's guide. I'm about 5 hours into it and I'm liking it though I still prefer the simple battle systems like X had.

Everyone complains about campers, nuke-boosters, n00b-tubers etc but there's a much more serious threat in my eyes.

People who quit during a match on FIFA.

It's seen in other sports games, but on FIFA it's extremely prevalent. I gave up on Head to Head play for a while considering how much of it I had seen. Returned to it this afternoon and of all 4 games I played with random people, all 4 of them gave up when they were losing. I can sort of understand if you're losing 8-0 (go me :D) but quitting after the 25th min as soon as I score a goal? Give me a break. The automatic 3-0 score to the non-quitter is not much of a penalty to these people as they just don't learn.

I appreciate the fact that not everybody has the best connection in the world so it may kick you out without even intending to do so. It happened to me more than once back with my old ISP. But at least then I went back and offered them a rematch. As all the people I've played against throughout my time with FIFA10 haven't done that, then I can assume that they're intentional quitters.

Man up. It's a game. Winning a match does not result in a naked Megan Fox descending on your lap. Means nothing at the end of the day besides a bit of fun. You accept it and learn from your defeats. This is the biggest issue I have against online players. Hate it.

Empire Magazine did their list of the Top 50 game characters (http://www.empireonline.com/features/50-greatest-video-game-characters/)

And it's pretty strange. Some of their choices of characters don't even speak and are utterly devoid of any personality. But then maybe the requirements of a game character differ from film characters? Most of their reasoning on their choices seems to indicate there is none though. :?

Here's a tip if you're playing against trash talkers. Be polite. If someone calls you a camper (when you're not and you know that he knows you're not as you keep killing him in different areas of the map) then just say 'Good game'. If someone calls you something like, I dunno, an Irish heterosexual who has sex with his mother, just say you're sorry you feel that way if you feel like you should reply to it at all. From my experience this morning, it confuses the hell out of them, and they have no response other than to keep repeating the same taunt over and over and over again, showing them up as the attention whores they are. Ideally, you then go onto beat them in the following Team Deathmatch and they leave the lobby afterwards, if not during mid-game. Simples. I love try-hards, so easy to wind up.

Played Metroid Primer earlier where I reached the Phendrana Drifts. Reminded me of my first playthrough and getting to this area for the first time, looking out at the frozen wasteland, a new area to explore and the first few piano notes of the background music started playing, a song that I heard for the first time, yet felt like I'd known it forever. A gentle, soothing song in stark contrast to the almost tribal, thumping song of the Magmoor Caverns. And as I was surveying the landscape, I looked outside to see snow also falling outside my house. It was perfect and I still felt the tingle of excitement today as I did all those years ago.

Square Enix is offering an Xbox Live demo of Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days to anyone who becomes a friend of the game's official YouTube page.

If you do, you'll be sent a token that can be exchanged for a demo of the campaign, arcade and multiplayer modes.

The demo goes live on 1st July for a limited period of time. These tokens will only be offered to a limited number of people.

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days will be released on 27th August on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

K&L2 looks interesting enough. That low, Youtube-esque camera quality filter applied over it and everything. Have to wait and hear about how it plays though.

CAPCOM 72 Hour Sale

Dark Void™
Dark Void’s unique combination of in-air and on-ground combat creates a thrilling new gameplay dynamic to the third-person shooter experience. Taking 3D action to a whole new level, Dark Void’s vertical combat system allows players to dangle from thousand foot drops as they take cover and drop enemies from above and below, bringing a whole new sense of vulnerability and thrill to the player.

With the aid of Nikola Tesla and a state-of-the-art rocket pack, Rusty must take down the Watchers and their minions across three intense levels of action and intrigue.

FLOCK!
FLOCK! uses a sophisticated physics engine that drives the challenging puzzle elements of the game. Whether it’s using the Tractor beam to move obstacles out of the way, or the Depressor beam to stamp out crop circles to guide your herds, being an extraterrestrial has never been this addictive. Friends can also join in through co-op play. And when all the levels have been completed, users can make their own with the level editor that comes with the game. Flock comes packed with so much content, the potential fun is out of this world!

Death Rally
Death in the Fast Lane.
Quote
In late 1996 this top-down racing game took all by surprise with it's addictive nature and excellent gameplay.

The basic idea behind Death Rally: win races, gather more money, buy upgrades to your vehicle. In between wreck your opponents, shoot your way through bystanders and keep the pedal to the metal!

In 2009, Remedy is proud to announce the free re-release, Death Rally for Windows. The original game, ported to run on modern PCs.
Game requirements:
Any PC that can run Windows XP SP3, Vista or Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit). Please read the readme in the installation package for more information.

PAX Brings Gaming Music Icons to Seattle Labor Day Weekend

SEATTLE – June 28, 2010 – A heavyweight lineup of gaming culture's best known music acts will perform for thousands during PAX at the Main Theatre in Downtown Seattle on Friday, Sept. 3 and Saturday, Sept. 4.

The three-day party celebrating gaming culture is bringing a wide range of music acts from comedy rock to chiptune punk to progressive metal. This will be the first appearance at PAX for The Protomen's Mega Man-based rock operas. Returning to PAX after a long absence is fan favorite the Minibosses. The full line-up of groups include

Anamanaguchi
Jonathan Coulton
MC Frontalot
Metroid Metal
The Minibosses
Paul and Storm
The Protomen

"Music is an integral piece of the gaming culture. We use it not only to express ourselves but also to bond with other gamers," said Robert Khoo of Penny Arcade. "These artists and their concerts are one of the PAX events our fans consistently rave about."

The annual gaming festival brings tens of thousands of gamers from across the globe to celebrate gaming and includes panel discussions, concerts, tournaments and a huge exhibition hall. Some of the industry's biggest names in pen-and-paper, tabletop, CCG, PC and console video games will show off their latest. More than seventy exhibitors have already signed up including 2K Games, Capcom, Disney, EA, Microsoft, NCsoft, Nintendo, Turbine, Ubisoft, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Wizards of the Coast.

The pre-registration cost is $55 for three-day and $35 for single day passes. The passes are all-access for events, concerts, parties, panels and freeplay areas. Only "sealed deck" tournaments, which require new physical product in order to be played, have an additional fee.

PAX registration is at http://www.paxsite.com/paxprime/registration.php. (http://www.paxsite.com/paxprime/registration.php.)

Namco Bandai took the veil off the mystery Idol Master title it's been teasing for a few months now. The new game is Idolmaster 2, and it's in development for Xbox 360 with a planned release in Spring 2011.

This first new numbered Idolmaster game in five years puts you at the head of 765 Productions once again. But as the first major change, instead of producing idol candidates into idols, you work with idols who are already half a year into their debut. The theme of the game is "unity." Your goal now is to make a national hit of a unit of three idols.

Idols from the first game will appear in the sequel, but they'll be joined now by Takane and Hibiki who are now members of 765 Pro. They appeared in Idolmaster SP as rival members from 961 Productions. Everyone is a year older now.

Idolmaster 2 is being produced by Yozo Sakagami and directed by Akihiro Ishihara and Masataka Kato. Characters designs are by Toshiyuki Kubooka and Kiyotaka Tamiya.

The announcement came today at the first day of "The Idolmaster 5th Anniversary The World is All One" concert event at Makuhari. Sakagami introduced the game and shared a trailer, which you can see here

I've only played it co-op, but I can assure you that that's a lot of fun. Even when you keep failing scenes xD; The game feels kind of arcade-y like, though that seems to be even more so with the sequel :D Can't wait to get my hands on that.

Thought I'd give K&L Dead Men's single player mode a try today. Wish me luck! xD *will probably fail the very first scene*

Like Gran Turismo 5? Enough to get the Collector's Edition? Well I hope all that time spent in development has allowed you to save up your pennies for it. With no indication on what the Collector's Edition includes, An 'Ultra Edition' has been listed on Amazon France for €189.95 (£157).  (http://www.amazon.fr/Gran-Turismo-5-%C3%A9dition-ultime/dp/B003SNJNSG/ref=amb_link_157279167_4?pf_rd_m=A1X6FK5RDHNB96&pf_rd_s=hero-quick-promo&pf_rd_r=1P8MGATN3MCX0FHVNG5Z&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_p=205947087&pf_rd_i=B002N9DQ66) At that price I'd at least like a steering wheel and a pit girl XD

Gran Turismo 5 will get two special edition releases ,according to country manager for Sony Computer Entertainment India, Atindriya Bose.

"One is the game plus some added content and collectibles, while the other is in a really big package with a lot of paraphernalia that goes beyond the game," he said in a recent interview.

"It's all car-related, but I'm unaware of the exact contents."

That's still well over what I'd be willing to spend on a game, even GT5. Will be interesting to see what is actually included, though

Haven't been console gaming for nearly a month already. Wanted to blow off some steam today, so I turned on the PS3 to play a little Infamous.
Completed a mission, then the game went wacko and he kept running on the same spot. Rebooted the PS3, and it couldn't detect any game disc I put into it. :( Hope it's just because of the heat, and will work again after it cools down. :cry:

Guess I'll just do something else, like watch the world cup.

Saw people talking about mmorpgs in the IRC and decided to go download Dofus (http://www.dofus.com/en) again :heart: I played it during its BETA, I even paid to play (!!!!), bought an artbook and everything xD but had to stop playing because I didn't have time for it... now downloading to see what it's developed into :O EXCITING~

Anyone else play/played it? It's available for all operating systems, and it is free to play, so there's no excuse not to give it a shot! ;D
WOW someone else here has played Dofus too?! XD I updated my Dofus to 2.0 yesterday but I still haven't had time (okay I've been too lazy XD) to see how it is yet! :D Create your character to the same world as mine? :mon innocent: Let's see, um, gotta check which world I am in actually hehehe :P Rosal! Welcome to the world of Rosal! :D

I've also bought the membership a few times. I think I'll buy some more as I get used to this new version, which might take a long time or then I'll never get used to it. :smhid I don't like updates O_O Hmmm seems.. new o.o and different and updated. WTF I GOTTA CHOOSE MY CHARACTERS COLORS AGAIN WTF I DONT WANNA THIS IS GONNA TAKE FOR EVER lol see Fushi go "FFFFFUUUUUUUU" when it's about games :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Lol omg Fushi, we need to play together some time~! I just created my character, though so I'm still running around in the tutorial area xD I haven't even entered Astrub yet :lol:

... my login message tells me "welcome to the world of Twelve!", I have no idea how to change worlds, but perhaps it has to do with the fact that I'm still in the tutorial area? Eeeh... I'll figure this stuff out later. I know I used to play on Rosal back in.. 2005 or whenever it was I last played this game xD

Oh and yeah I'm on the Zatoïshwan server.

This is what my character looks like:

I totally copied the character I played with back in 2005, she looked like this;

 :cry:
It looks so stupid........ :cry: XD And I even failed my build when I played earlier :mad: I scrolled something I shouldn't have, I don't remember what I actually did but I realised I had done something that ruined my Dofus future. :( So I quit. And now I'm back raging the scrolled stats hahahahaha :lol:
There might be a way for me to continue my Dofus playing. :)) Gotta see when I get used to 2.0 hehe :nervous Or then I'll just create a new character or SERÖLDKFHS whatever. :D

Agh, I meant server, I'm on Rosal.

It's not been the best day for me lol Got embarrased against other people in SSFIV. And what really annoyed me was fighting against this one guy, and I knew I could do it, I could feel it, he wasn't blocking but sure enough he found me out when I wasn't blocking too and I eventually lost. Still have a ways to go, I can't block if my life depended on it and my opponents can read me like a book. Need to stop relying on beginning a combo with aerial kicks. Anyway, I thought I'd go to MW2 afterwards but then, in the space of 1 hour I met boosters, campers, noob tubers galore, connection issues, getting kicked mid-game (3 times) and bad team play which lead to me winning just 1 match out of 9.

I better sleep on it XD

Someone showed me this trailer for The Last Story, Mistwalkers (Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey) new game coming out for the Wii

The Last Story - Trailer Ufficiale Gameplay (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCH4qlEs8Do#ws)

Looks pretty good. Battle system seems interesting enough, has a neat looking battle system (what JRPG have you seen that has a cover system?), and the world looks pretty expansive. Only thing I'm not liking is the character design.

Mistwalker's track record is pretty hit and miss. Hironobu Sakaguchi may be on the team, but Blue Dragon was pretty mediocre by all concerned (or at least very traditional and very safe that there would be a select audience out there that would lap it up) and Lost Odyssey was regarded as being the same, though supposedly had one of the best stories told in a JRPG yet. I say supposedly, cause I haven't played it. Though I probably should...

Anyway look out for it. It's significant if for no reason than it might be Sakaguchi's last game. He said so himself.

Quote
Activision's officially announced its upcoming James Bond third person shooter.

It will be released on Xbox 360, PS3, PC and DS at the end of this year.

The game takes players through a third-person action adventure encompassing all things Bond including speeding across land and sea to unravel an international conspiracy.

Joss Stone provides an original musical track to the game, titled "I'll Take it All" as well as appearing in the game as Bond's latest lady friend.[/quote[

NIER is killing me XD
Looks I'm too stupid for the DLC, can't get past the staircase, all the doors are closed, don't know what to do there.
Then I thought this would be the first game that I manage to do all the Achievements, but this is harder than I expected. The 30-Weapons-Upgrade is a time killer, farming all the rare materials is HELL. The fishing Achievements are too time consuming for my taste as well.
Hope these are the only ones I have to leave open.
Also I want to see the last ending NOW but since the game erases all your saves after seeing it, I'll have to postpone until I've done all the stuff I still want to do. I could watch it on youtube, but that wouldn't be the same, I'm strange in that way.

Of that list I see maybe 5 games I own or would like to play. I'd say you should probably go on eBay for most of them and see what price they're selling at. I wouldn't expect much profit if you sold them back. Especially considering the condition they are in can affect the sale if sold individually.

Kojima, Shikura and possibly Suda 51 are working together on an adventure game:

(http://scrawlfx.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Suda-Shikimura-Kojima.jpg)
Link (http://scrawlfx.com/2010/07/hideo-kojima-and-5pb-working-on-adventure-project)

Quote
Chiyomaru Shikura, CEO of Japanese game publisher 5pb, is working on a project with Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima. During an interview with Japanese publication 4Gamer, the CEO said that he and the legendary creator are working on a new adventure game.

Suda 51 is involved, as well, if a tweeted image (see below) from back in May is to be believed. The tweet said that a meeting between Suda 51, Shikura, and Kojima resulted in the idea for a new adventure game.

When 4Gamer asked whether or not Shikura and Kojima are making an action game, Shikura replied, “Yes, Kojima said that he wanted to make an adventure game. We’re still at the level of ‘let’s lock ourselves away in the mountains somewhere and work on the plot,’ so the specifics haven’t been finalized.”

Shikura wouldn’t comment on the type of story we’d see in the game, whether it’d be science fiction, etc. He’d need permission from Kojima to answer that. However, a question later in the interview hints at a new direction for 5pb’s usual “gal game” type.

“I personally love adventure games. To be honest, I’m not focused on gal games. I even think that it would be okay to have a classic style adventure game boom with nothing to do with bishojo or pretty boys.”

5pb is known for games such as Steins Gate on Xbox 360. Loli shooters, basically. We’ll see what comes out of him, Kojima, and Suda when they release official details.

Note: This project is most likely different from the project that may result in Metal Gear Solid 5.

Policenauts? Zone Of The Enders? Something new entirely?

Actual Yakuza review Yakuza 3: (http://www.boingboing.net/2010/08/10/yakuza-3-review.html)

Quote
M: The corporate yakuza guys get a thumbs up for realism. Nice suit. Smart. Financially savvy. Obsessed with money. Sneaky and conniving. Ruthless.
S: There are a lot of guys whom I feel like I know. The dialogue is right too. They sound like yakuza.
K: Braggarts, bullies, and sweet-talkers. I agree — it feels like I know the guys on the screen.
M: Kiryu is the way yakuza used to be. We kept the streets clean. People liked us. We didn't bother ordinary citizens. We respected our bosses. Now, guys like that only exist in video games.
S: I don't know any ex-yakuza running orphanages.
K: There was one a few years ago. A good guy.
M: You sure it wasn't just a tax shelter?
K: Sure it was a tax shelter but he ran it like a legitimate thing. You know.

:lol: And what do they think about their favourite parts (Mahjong, Hostess clubs) being cut from the Western version?

Quote
After I explain to him what Sega cut from the US version, he said: アメリカ版を買った奴がかわいそうだ。セガUSAが最低だね.(Translation: I feel sorry for the people who bought the American version. SEGA USA sucks.)

Hear that SEGA USA?! Even actual Yakuza disagree with your decision! :lol:

COD:MW2 Glitch Lets 360 Owners Play Full Versions of 5 SNK XBLA Titles

In order to see the glitch in action, you only need to launch Modern Warfare 2. Once the game and/or demo has booted, press the Xbox 360 guide button and select "Quick Launch." Now, highlight the XBLA SNK demo that you want to play and confirm the selection. The XBLA game will launch as a full version.

The SNK games affected by the glitch are: Garou: Mark of the Wolves, The King of Fighters '98 Ultimate Match, Metal Slug 3, Metal Slug XX and Samurai Showdown II. Fatal Fury Special and NeoGeo Battle Coliseum are unaffected.

Doing 25 laps Nurburgring atm in Gran Turismo 4  :panic:

That is hardcore! Let us know what your total race time was cause I'm gonna have to do something similar for Forza 3, and I can't imagine making it to the 25th lap and crashing without the rewind feature :nervous

3:21:45

In a stock AC Cobra, which is a PAIN.  :lol: I had to use a stock car for this particular challenge (the 1000 miles one) and the AC seemed the fastest. I had one ultra slow lap, because I forgot to pit in on time, so I had to drive a lap with worn tires  :panic:

Oh my days! 3 hrs? Wow :lol: Even I think a race lasting 20 mins is long enough XD Still working my way through the events (currently in an event limited to Acura and Honda Integra's). I checked the stats, over 300 races and only 20% of the career mode complete :nervous

So after posting on the Gran Turismo thread I got the urge to play Forza. And I was browsing through some designs and vinyl groups when I thought maybe they have some Morning Musume vinyl groups. If they have them for SNSD and anime, then surely someone out there has done some right? Well I was right! One creator had made a banner saying 'I :heart: Aichan' and had 3 others of the same design but in different colours for Risa, Eri and Reina. They also had a design of Morning Musume in Japanese which hopefully you guys can see:

(http://img826.imageshack.us/img826/3792/aichan.th.jpg) (http://img826.imageshack.us/i/aichan.jpg/)(http://img191.imageshack.us/img191/3490/aichanrace.th.jpg) (http://img191.imageshack.us/i/aichanrace.jpg/)

Then this was really cool. To accompany my 'I :heart: Reina' banner for my Buick, I also found a really well crafted design of Kaito Reinya to go on the hood :w00t:!

And someone even created a decal for my love of all things JAV :lol:

The team behind Persona are making a game (finally) for the HD generation and coming to the 360 & PS3. But it's not Persona. Instead it's an action adventure game known as Catherine (http://www.siliconera.com/2010/08/17/introducing-catherine-the-first-hd-game-from-the-persona-team/). They're marketing it as an adult game:

(http://img705.imageshack.us/img705/9058/cathrine.th.png) (http://img705.imageshack.us/i/cathrine.png/)(http://img840.imageshack.us/img840/4143/cathrine2.th.jpg) (http://img840.imageshack.us/i/cathrine2.jpg/)

(http://img838.imageshack.us/img838/4669/cathrine3.jpg) (http://img838.imageshack.us/i/cathrine3.jpg/)

And by adult I mean BOOBS :lol:

More details regarding the game:

Quote
Game Jouhou has posted a bunch of additional details on Catherine, Atlus's new PS3 and Xbox 360 action adventure game.

As detailed below, Catherine is the first HD game from Atlus. It's being made with key members of the Persona staff. Included in the staff list are Katsura Hashino as producer and director, Shigenori Soejima as character designer, and Shouji Meguro as sound composer.

While the game's name is Catherine, the main character is actually a 32-year-old salaryman named Vincent (voiced by Koichi Yamadera). Catherine (voiced by Miyuki Sawashiro) is a stylish 22-year-old girl who apparently has the charms of a young girl.

The game begins when Vincent, a vegetarian who has no ambition in work or love (I'm not sure if he's literally a "vegetarian," or if the term "vegetarian" is some sort of metaphor for his personality) runs into the mysterious Catherine one day. At night, he has nightmares.

The nightmares serve as an action component for the game. Set in a world with an unending stairway, Vincent has to make it to the top of the stairs, or he will not be able to awaken.

Based off Game Jouhou's summary, it's a bit unclear how the game will progress. However, it does seem that even during the nightmare action parts, you'll end up working through the story and encountering events.

During a staff interview, Hashino said that as their first HD game, rather than trying out a true RPG, the team was excited about trying out something new. It looks like Catherine will be just that, as Hashino said it will be more adult oriented than past titles from the team. It's not all style, though. Hashino promised a deep play experience with plenty of gameplay for players to sink their teeth into.

Soejima said that there are some shockingly adult scenes in the game. When you play these scenes, they'll be even more stimulating, although in a difference sense.

Meguro confirmed the adult leanings of the title, saying that the keywords for the game's music are "classic," "adult oriented" and "erotic." He also promised 5.1ch sound.

Meguro also made a comment that has Persona fans excited. He said that due to Catherine, he believes for the time being the staff won't be asked about their next title. However, at some point next year, perhaps he'll be able to respond "Regarding the RPG, Hashino and I are..."

OH. MY. GOD!!! :panic:

Gamescom 2010 was awesome!!! I had a lot of fun (besides of my brother, who was bored like hell and disturbed my fun! <_<).
The gamescom was FULL! It was full, you could take only steps and not right walking, it was insane! X_X I'm uploading right now the photos I took there! :D
One negative point there was: the Music was TOO LOUD! :bleed eyes: and I couldn't play all games that I wanted play ;_; That's very sad... Like Patapon 3, Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep and Golden Sun: Dark Dawn... I couldn't play all of them! The waiting line was too long!!!
First, I walked to Hall 6, where Square Enix, EA etc. was... wanted to play BbS but see above; I couldn't play it! XD
And I missed the Closed Mega Theater of Sqaure Enix, where they showed the FF XIV trailer. D: I could wait for the next Closed Mega Theater on the programm but as I said above.. my brother was bored like hell and disturbed my fun there -.-
Next year, I'll go ALONE!!!

Well... anyway... I walked further to Hall 7, where Konami, Bamco (Bandai Namco) etc. was.... I was at least glad that I could play the demos to Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's: Master of the Cards (Wii) and Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Tag Force 5... There were two other YGO! games... one was the new Yu-Gi-Oh! (5D's) Online: Duel Accelerator and the other one was Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's: Decade Duels for the XBOx Live Arcade... The Wii game of 5D's was very slow <_< I don't know, if it was because it was not the final game or was the Wii itself to blame for it... I don't know it. But the game was very slow and I hope that the final version will not be slow. I lost both Duels in both games... Because in the Demo Version, your Deck is FULL with Low Monsters and dump SPell and Trap Cards -.- How can you win so a Duel?! XD
Next I walked to Sony.. I wanted to play Patapon 3, no chance! You know why, see above! XD

Then I walked to Hall 8, where Nintendo and some misc. congresses was there... I wanted to play Golden Sun: Dark Dawn... but I couldn't..,. AGAIN! WHY?! The damn waiting line was too LONG!!! :angry:

And on my way back to go home (my brother made already a face, like he was going to KILL me! o_O) I got me again on the line of Birth by Sleep, on the hope I could play it... But no chance! XD

But it was a lot of fun! I'll go next year again, that's for sure! :lol:

And here we have the photos, I took! XD (Sorry, that some pics are sideway! XD I tried to change it but no chance):

(http://i579.photobucket.com/albums/ss236/Hitsuji87/th_DSC00298.jpg) (http://s579.photobucket.com/albums/ss236/Hitsuji87/?action=view&current=DSC00298.jpg) KOELNMESSE!!! Gamescom was set in this building!! (and will next year too, of course!) Me and my brother entered it through the East Entrance... This is a very HUGE building.. if you don't know, where to go, you are LOST!

Hells ya! When I first saw these candidates, it really made me wanna see last year's candidates. The only posts I've found on that topic are those ones on Rio; the AV actress who took the lead XD

For this year's candidates, I'm in favor of these two:

No AV girls this time, but the first girl, Yuria Hayashida, is on Choito Muscat with Rio.  I think I read that she was neither a AV actress nor gravure model. She asked for Rio's advice in the competition. I thought it was cute.  :oops:  Blog: http://ameblo.jp/yuria-ryu/ (http://ameblo.jp/yuria-ryu/)

Mark Sep 23rd in your calendar!!!
The next annual videogame concert will take place in Cologne/Germany, like last year's Square Enix tribute, this year the concert will focus solely on one game developer and it's: NINTENDO!
And just like last year the event will be streamed life for everyone who can't go or just couldn't secure a ticket in time (or aren't big enough fans of BigN's games and music to go there but still don't want to miss it, like myself  :lol: )

http://www.symphoniclegends.com/ (http://www.symphoniclegends.com/)


By the way the concert for 2011 is going to be called "Symphonic Odysseys" and it will focus on Nobuo Uematsu!!!
Tickets for this will go on sale around Dec'10 and they will be sold out like nothing I bet, so grab them while they're hot&available  :lol:

One of my favourite MW2 Youtube commentators has become a real asshole lately. He's bashing Black Ops even though he's said many times he's gonna play it and only gonna get it because of more subscribers and money. In fact a lot of his videos lately have had this nasty undercurrent of attempting to get more money or views, he's always talking about the money he's gonna make off Black Ops. Perhaps worst of all, he's hating on other popular Youtube commentators, and are usually ones that have more subscibers than him. Not only on their gameplay but insulting their appearance or personality, and yet he's no Brad Pitt himself. Now he likes to refer to himself as 'The Shepherd of Legitimacy'. It's just a sad descent from what he used to be, and at the rate he's going, there's no way he could ever hope to overcome the likes of Hutch, Tejb or Seananners, great players with just really likeable personalities.

Game maker SquareEnix has set rules, delayed the beta testing and endorsed a PC that will be capable of playing the newest installment of the Final Fantasy series, Final Fantasy XIV. The PC only costs 315,000yen ($3,750USD).

The computer is called the “FRONTIER” and has an Intel® Core i7-980X (3.33GHz), Windows® 7 Ultimate 64bit, 12GB (2GBx6), triple channel DDR3-SDRAM memory, NVIDIA® GeForce GTX480, SSD 80GB and a second hard drive 2TB.

The reason for this is because the requirements to play the MMORPG are pretty extensive. SquareEnix has stated that at least a CPU that is Intel Core 2 Duo (2GHz) \ AMD Athlon X2 (2GHz), 1.5GB Ram and a graphics card that is NVIDIA GeForce 8600 VRAM 256 MB or equivalent.  The PS3 version is rumored to require at least 10GB or more of hard drive space.

These aren’t the only limitations to the game. SquareEnix has enforced an 8-hours-a-week game play. That means you cannot exceed eight hours in any given week to play the game. Game director Nobuaki Komoto released a statement on 8/25 announcing the news. In short, players will earn experience points at 100% for the first 8 hours. If you exceed seven hours over the limit, the experience points will decrease to 0%. The counter will reset after one week.  This doesn’t effect any class/job but is per character. The drops and loot are not affected by the experience points “fatigue”.

The 8 hours a week thing doesn't sound so bad really. I would probably put in less time in an MMORPG in a week than that. But as I remember WOW had something similar, fans loathed it and eventually it had to be reworked. Most likely something similar will happen here.

They always say children are our future. If this 7 yr old girl hurling abuse over Call of Duty is anything to go by, then the future is grim. Should warn you, there's very foul language in the video.

Oh I'm excited. Seems like Devil May Cry 5 may be in the works! :w00t: :w00t: :w00t:

Quote
It seems Capcom’s Keiji Inafune has confirmed the existence of Devil May Cry 5, after saying in an interview the next game in the series will have a “western touch” to attract potential UK-US buyers.

Speaking to Spanish website 3DJuegos (via CC), he said the company wanted more western sales for the series.
“Devil May Cry 5 is a game that, when started development, this will change a lot in relation to the above,” said Inafune.

“The reason is that, despite the franchise has some very loyal followers, their sales are not particularly high, especially overseas.”

He went on: “For this reason, it is likely that in the fifth chapter will incorporate certain western touch to make it more attractive to American and European players.”

It’s been rumoured that DMC5 has been in development for a while, with Enslaved studio Ninja Theory handling it.

Pfft, doesn't need a western touch. Please, no checkpoints every 2 mins, regenerating health and generic looking characters. DMC4 was the best selling in the series. Bayonetta may be the true evolution to DMC but DMC4 was a fantastic game regardless. And despite what people complained about, it is accessible. Certainly much more so than DMC3.

I played it a few years ago with my brother together after I bought my Wii and on that time, I had only Mario Kart Wii xD So I rented the game over the weekend. My brother and I havd a lot of fun during gameplay :lol: But I lost all the time...
Well.. anyway! I'll start this wonderful game this weekend (after I'm back from the City, searching for the Golden Sun games at all GameStop stores <.< One is done today, two are left!)! I'll train with this game, before I take some Invitations for some Battles! xD

^^Any PC 2-4 years old should be able to run most games with dynamic DX10 effects and high resolution textures enabled. Anything else is just poor coding on the developers part. FFXIV doesn't look especially demanding from previews, and that sponsored PC is just stupid.

As for the experience system in WoW, it's entirely different, and in reality Blizzard only changed the name of the system, to make it sound like you got a bonus for not playing, rather than a penalty for playing a lot. An 8 hours cap on experience/week is retarded, and presumably they would remove it to not deter people that like to be rewarded for playing after launch.

FFXIV is a bit on the excessive side though, my PC is usually running pretty hot (and loud) when I play it, maybe the 8 hours thing is good because it stops my PC from exploding XD

Does anyone else have problems watching videos on Gametrailers? I swear it loads videos slowly to start off with, then plays fine for a few seconds before lagging and eventually coming to a complete stop which freezes all activity on that page, or at worst, crash Firefox completely. Doesn't matter to me so much seeing as I can usually find them uploaded on Youtube too. I blame the advertising.

Gametrailers has sucked for me for a while now ever since they switched to the new flash player. It uses more cpu than it should and runs choppy in HD. I usually download the video if I can but I have trouble doing that half the time.

One reason why I hardly go there anymore even though their reviews are usually closest to my views of any of the media out there.

There's another gaming forum I visit occassionally (doesn't hold a candle to JPH!P's own VG forum in terms of activity and healthy debate IMO), and I just cannot voice an opinion without being shot down about it. People were hating big time on FF specifically FFXIII and Vaan from XII. I was the only one in the topic offering a defense of it (I did label Vaan a bad character but attempted to reason why he was included in the game in the first place) because I genuinely felt that way, and did it for the sake of a reasonable debate. Straightaway I was accused of trolling or being stupid because 'everything about the game is stupid'. Nice, that's a real logical critique there. Assholes. And I said I wasn't interested in Duke Nukem Forever and explained why, but again, people saying I'm one of these ones that writes premature reviews up on Amazon and it's impossible to judge on it at this stage. Fair enough, it is early days but you know what? I've seen videos. I've read opinions from people who've played it. And I've played a Duke Nukem game before and never really got into it. So no I'm not interested by the new one. It could be amazing by the time it comes out, but until then I'm just looking at a game that looks and plays like any other shooter out there in the market, so I think my view that it looks average is justified.

There, rant over XD
Title: Re: The Gaming Postwhoring Thread
Post by: zoolander on September 08, 2010, 05:01:05 AM
Yea it's the way of the internet. People like to sit and complain about things instead of thoroughly thinking about them and having thoughtful and fruitful discourse. Best to just ignore the idiots. They would probably be appalled to know my favorite is Final Fantasy 12. :lol:

As far as Duke Nukem goes, of course it won't be the greatest game in the world I'm sure reviews will tear it a new one but I would much rather play it than gritty military corridor shooter #3525225 taking itself way too seriously again. Also I like that Gearbox has a hand in it, I remember those guys talking about borderlands leading up to it's release and they seemed like the perfect type to do a game like Duke Nukem with how enthusiastic they seemed to get talking about crazy guns and stuff. Hopefully they will keep the level openness, interactivity, destructibility, absurd, cheesy humor and atmosphere from the original. You don't see many of the old school type games anymore. Serious Sam, Painkiller those are the closest I can think of. The new Bulletstorm game looks great too.

Now we just need Shenmue 3 for the opposite of the 'game that's never gonna be released' extreme and I'm good.

What about it? :lol: Turns out I realised she was making some reference about what I had written about in my profile. So I sent her a message back, before you know it and a couple of messages later, she's now on my friends list! Doubt I'll play with her much as she says she only plays LFD2 rarely.

I cleared all the speed runs in Mirrors Edge! The last one was by far the worst, random glitches and loading times kept preventing me from clearing it in under 6 mins. From experience, you can maybe afford to die once on an attempt and you can still clear it, but definately no more than that.

That lost chapter in Bayonetta is so hard! I can clear Verse 1 ok but then Verse 2 just notches it up a gear! It really feels like being a part of some gauntlet, I feel worn out after fighting Jeanne, so having to fight more after that is crazy!

My first Mario Bros. experience was actually Super Mario World for the SNES. I played it at a friend's house, and got seriously obsessed.

Found out today that demos for both FIFA 11 and PES 2011 are out tomorrow. Will have to download both and see how they do. I wonder how much difference between FIFA 10 and 11 I can find in a 10 min demo and also what PES 2011 brings this year.

By 10 mins do you means 90 (FIFA game version) mins?  :lol: My brother is the FIFA player so I feel that someone like him should be able to pick up on the differences. I've read about the goalie feature this year, that seems interesting to me.

Yeh exactly XD 10 mins of FIFA game time is like 30 secs so it wouldn't make the best demo! lol Being a goalie would be the most realistic mode. Be a hero for 89 mins but then concede a goal in extra time and become the villian. It's something you're gonna get a lot of hate for if you let goals in XD

Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick said it's likely his company will begin selling in-engine cutscenes as full movies in the near future.

Speaking today at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Media, Communications & Entertainment Conference in California, Kotick said StarCraft II's in-game cinematics are so good that the publisher could edit them into one film and distribute it to fans digitally, a move, he said, is likely to happen sometime in the next five years.

"If we were to take that hour, or hour an a half, and take it out of the game and we were to go to our audiences, who we have their credit card information a direct relationship, and say to them 'Would you like to have the StarCraft movie?'

Kotick continued to say he believes his business model is superior to that of current film studios, saying a StarCraft movie distributed by the publisher would crush any opening weekend box office record ever.

"My guess is unlike film studios that are really stuck with a model that goes through theatrical distribution and takes a signification amount of the profit away, if we were to go to an audience and say 'We have this great hour and a half of linear video that we'd like to make available to you at a $20 or $30 price point,' you'd have the biggest opening weekend of any film ever," he said.

"Within the next five years, you are likely to see us do that. It might be in a partnership with somebody or alone, but there will be a time where we'll capitalize on the relationship we have with our audience; deliver them something that is really extraordinary and let them consume it directly through us instead of theatrical distribution.

"If we were to deliver a film digitally this way, I'd say an extremely high percentage would then go to the theater and watch it again."

Would you pay to watch an in-game cutscene movie?

You see, this is what happens when people are stupid enough to pay £15 for 5 maps! You give the guy ideas like this!

Joined a L4D2 Versus match in Dark Carnival on the 2nd stage on the losing team. Played as survivors first. Got thrust right into the middle of a horde attack and made a couple of bad calls to orientate myself, got seperated from the rest at one time and the smoker got me which led to them having to rescue me. "What an idiot", one said. Someone even voted to kick me out. It failed. All I'll say is this:

NEVER COUNT ME OUT!!!

I don't wanna brag, but I effectively won that match for them. Was always supportive as the survivors, there were many, many times when someone could have been incapped or worse had I not been around knowing they were gonna get snatched. As the infected, I racked up the most points every single round, I make a great Jockey, but a pretty ineffective Charger. I made a great call in one stage as the Boomer, I spat on someone and hid, someone else as the Jockey came in and rode him away, and just as the remaining 3 were coming into support, I jumped right in front of them and staggered them back, it actually led to the whole team being incapped. It was glorious. And like I said, we won the match in the end. Funny enough, I didn't get any more votes to be kicked after that ;)

Let me bring you in to the frustrating world of TF2 item crafting. 

Been doing the item grind in TF2 for a hat.  I've been playing the game since beta and have yet to see a hat drop, so I've been scrapping all the items I get for materials.

2 identical items of the same type (two force of natures, etc.), or any 2 items from the same class (force of nature and a sandman, etc) = 1 Scrap metal.
3 scrap metal = 1 Reclaimed metal.
3 Reclaimed metal = 1 Refined metal.
Class Token = 3 class weapons
Random Class hat = 4 Refined metal + Class Token.

In other words, it takes 75 items to make a random class-specific hat.  <Jeremy Clarkson dramatic voice> Or does it? </Jeremy Clarkson dramatic voice>

Well, it does.  But how long it takes to get the right combination is what's frustrating.  Take a look at the items I have in my backpack.  These are about all the items I got to drop over this weekend:

(http://img405.imageshack.us/img405/557/craftingfail.th.jpg) (http://img405.imageshack.us/i/craftingfail.jpg/)

These items cannot be combined in any order so that smelting down to a scrap metal occurs.  This is the worst part about crafting:  that even if it only takes 2 identical same-type slot items, or two of a certain class' items, you may not get any combination of those two options for a while.

It's maddening.  :angry:

Played some demos today  :)

Arcania - Gothic 4
Never played any Gothic before, just tried it out of curiosity and if I wanted to play it (which I don't) I would def need a HD TV, the screen text was unreadable on my tube.

Vanquish
Stylish! I love the look and sound of this game (and even the german voice acting doesn't suck), but this is not enough for me to play this.

Enslaved - Journey to the West
I was really looking forward to this game, eventhough I didn't like the character of Monkey at first. Now it's kind of changed to the opposite. The more I hear about the game, the more I lose interest, but then there's Monkey and Trip and I've started to like them. What puts me off the most right now is the plattform elements of the game, you basically just hit one button and a direction and Monkey will jump to the next point. no risk of falling down or jumping into nothingness.
I'm still unsure if I should get this or not. Playing the demo didn't help my decision at all (but at least it confirmed a good german dub)

Lumines Live!
I know it's old, but I never tried it. Unsure if I should get it, puzzle games are so damn addictive  :lol:

Now if only the demos for Lords of Shadows and Quantum Theory get released fast  XD

Well, I don't really expect to win anything from this, but the gear that any of us could potentially win is pretty swanky.

Pretty simple stuff. Click on someone's link, sign up, they get something called a frag point. Get 10 frag points (basically get 10 other people to sign up) and you're in the running to win something. There are 1337 prizes being given away as well even if you don't win first prize. Yeah :thumbup

Played the PES 2011 demo. Just couldn't get into it at all, despite the overhaul. Whose bright idea was it to have manual passing mapped to the same analog stick as to make you player run? Many a time I want to pass a player in front of me, to my left but have to turn right to get past a defender, and when I point towards the right and make a pass, he makes a manual pass back to the opposition or out of play. In essense I have to stand still if I have to make a pass to the closest player to me which kills the flow of the game. It's either that or run straight into the opposition. Maybe there's an option to map the controls differently but it's not my only complaint. The referee is super picky, you don't really feel in control of the ball and it's just the feel of the game that's still off. FIFA still remains the best footy game IMO.

^ Nice one Ayako! Bit of advice, though the game will tell you to make use of Snow's Sentinel class, you can get by just fine if you have a COM/RAV paradigm for the enemies you meet so far. You'll eventually come to fight an enemy now and again where you absolutely will need to switch to Sentinel if you wanna survive. I'll let you figure that out for yourself though ;)

Just thought I'd let you know cause I know many people who reach that part and think that they have to use Sentinel at the early stages of that chapter when they really don't. The game introduces that concept too early IMO, like I said it's not needed for the most part, until you see a different enemy type that you fight. Again, you'll see what I mean XD

Played the Dead Rising 2 online mode for the first time!!
reminds me of some kind of gladiators type tv show, complete with titles and announcers and everything, it's very strange for an online game, but it's really good!!

I sucked so badly though at the games, I ended up like 10000 points behind everyone else and had a 6 second handcap in the final bloodbath game!
I was kind of annoyed because I always thought I was really good at Dead Rising ;__;

...but then I went from last place to first place and won the whole show!  :lol:
No-one else knew how to drive the bikes and were just flying around everywhere while I just killed everything and I ended up with $68,000 to take to the main game

Don't really want to play it again but it's nice to have (I only have a 60gig hd so I'll probably delete it eventually and I could just get it for like $10 anyways if I really wanted it). I've also heard if you had any of the DLC on your save it won't work either but I never bought any of that.

I'm pretty much the biggest cheapskate there is when it comes to games. I'm always great at taking advantage of unintended deals at stores. I got Castlevania for $35 at Best Buy from stacking deals ($10+$10+15%) and I got a little more than that for trading it in for Fallout NV with the pre order bonus. I also got Shadow Complex for free because of a bug in the demo. Oh and I bought 7 copies of Lost Odyssey for $12 each from Target and traded them in for $22 each. mwahahahaha :twisted:

Heads are gonna explode this upcoming week, literally, cause the demo for Fist of the North Star : Ken's Rage is gonna be released for XBL and PSN on the 19th.

Quote
This demo lets players battle bosses and turn regular enemies into bloody puddles in two of the game’s stages. You’ll be able to use Ken and Rei in the demo. The full game has more characters, of course, and it will be in stores on November 2.

Combat looks clunky and repetitive but there's just something about FOTNS that I can't help but enjoy. Might just wait 2 weeks after release and it will be dropped down in price by 50% like most of these niche games do :nervous But til then, here's the official website (http://www.kensrage.com/uk/top.html), a trailer:

I made a list of pros and cons of each console.. can't decide what to buy  :lol: I'm a playstation guy...

In sum:
- Wii:
pro: something different, cool platformers, kirby epic yarn + mario games
con: hate the wiimote, I'd only use it as a regular controller, controls aren't accurate enough (fixed now?), plastic-looking

- PS3:
pro: love the controller, FFXIII, GT5, bluray player
con: price, more of the same

- PSP:
pro: AKB48 game, other wacky/cool games like locoroco, patapon, etc
con: might get boring fast, handhelds run out of battery fast, no joined fun


So yeah, basically it's a Wii for the platform games that the Playstation lacks, or get the Playstation for some killer looking games like FFXIII and GT5, which esentially is more of the same I already have... which I do like...

IMO xbox & ps3 are almost identical with only a minimum of differences and PS3 having a blu-ray player, if you'r not too fussed about blu-ray or have an SDTV then I'd get an xbox. Plus it's not entirely true anymore (but close!) you could buy both a wii and a 360 for the price of a PS3.

I can't stop playing the Fist of the North Star demo. It rocks so much! I'm really impressed with it overall, there's a nice depth to the combat that I didn't initially think was there. Every punch and kick just feels heavy, that might sound like a bad thing but it's not, you feel like they all connect as a result and they hit hard. The special moves feel so satisfying. Aside from that, the setting is cool, music is rocking, the English dub is awful XD But you've got the option of the original Japanese dub too, so it's all good.

XD Did you play as Rei? I struggled as Kenshiro cause they just put you right into a boss fight without any explaination of the controls, play as Rei however and you actually go through a stage, the meat of the game, and are given tutorials on what to do, it's a much better indication of what the game's like.

After all the festivals missed in Guild Wars, I finally took part in this year's Halloween. Oh sweet virtual candy and booze!
I wasn't planning to play so missed out for most days but got on for the last 2 appearances of the Mad King.
The hats for this year are actually pretty decent, except they aren't really festive. Goggles and nekomimi!

Also found out about the Pink Dye trader for Pink Day in LA. Hasn't been an easy way to get pink since the old dye system overhaul.
They are only 100g each plus they are mixable! They aren't tradable though, but can be placed in the vault. Got a hundred for future mixing purposes.
Seems to mix well with purples and reds. Black may be cost-prohibitive, silvers work with multiple pinks in the mix. Other colours don't really result in pinkish colours so :V

Cat ears, pink armour.

As you've probably noticed, Microsoft launched its Kinect motion control system this week -- and while you're rearranging your furniture to make room for the space-hungry sensor, here's a timely reminder that playing motion-control games can be hazardous to the health of your television.

It comes to us courtesy of an unfortunate Kinect owner, who...well, we'll let him tell it.

"A public service announcement," he says on his personal blog: "Do not under any circumstances play Kinect Sports Volleyball at 1:30 a.m. while standing under a ceiling fan with a dangling chain for a light switch. You could conceivably spike it into your year-old amazing TV, causing it to die with a rainbow LCD teardrop dripping down from the impact wound."

Gory. Gamers with long memories might recall a spate of similar TV destruction when the Nintendo Wii appeared on the market. Nintendo quickly issued owners with strengthened wristbands and, later, grippy controller sheaths, but even that didn't entirely stop the carnage.

Tried the mp part of Snoopy Flying Ace demo and it made my box freeze so if that's not a sign of "stay away from this game" then I don't know what is XD

In preparation for Black Ops on Tues, I went for some free for all matches on COD4 today (my MW2 disc is scratched beyond repair). Of 8 games played I won every single one, much the annoyance of an American pre-pubescent tween who at one point, shouted down the mic. Bring on Tues :D

*EDIT*

After a promising start to my FIFA11 season, I'm now slipping behind in points. Not lost, but I've gone 360 minutes (game time that is) without scoring. Now 6 points behind the leaders, Aston Villa. Worse still, my pro is injured for 2 months.  :banghead:

I'm getting goosebumps thinking of AC Brotherhood. It will be waiting for me when I go home next week,

and so will SVR 2011 and Mafia 2. I think I'm gonna start with SVR because I need to create my wrestler, and that takes hours.

Here's something to make the wait less bearable, it's got a perfect score from Eurogamer. (http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2010-11-16-assassins-creed-brotherhood-review) The first in the series to do so. My dad confided in me that he'll buy it for Christmas for me :)

That's good news! I was thinking to buy but wanted to hear some opinions and I'm right now reading Reviews etc...
Good to hear that the game got so many positive points! Maybe I'll buy it after I bought the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's games...

I went to the shops yesterday and saw Vanquish on sale for $80 (cheap for a new game here) and was so close to getting it, but then controlled myself and figured that I could pay less for it later, or better, just buy it online. However, I did buy the game of the year edition of Oblivion for $25. It's alright and I can see why people would like it, but I'm still in the middle of Bayonetta, so the slower pace of everything is a little annoying. I'm a Khajit monk :)

Damn, a part of me really wants to go out and get AC: Brotherhood, as it's been constantly on my mind since yesterday, but I know it'll make my wallet a lot thinner. Might buy it online.

Well today I went from epic fail earlier in the week to epic wins! Beat a guy in the last min of extra time in FIFA 11, went on a 5 win streak in ranked SFIV bringing me back to around the same level I was previously and I won every FFA/Sabotage game I played in Black Ops. The FFA wins were the sweetest cause not only were they convincing wins, (30/5 K/D ratio ain't bad I think) but two guys were hating on me so bad that they were bigging themselves up when they killed me. On the last game it even descended into, 'let's find Tuffty and get him'. Couldn't do it though if I have my Blackbird up in the air :pimp:

A few days ago I decided to start with Mafia 2 (since it was the last one I played) but after reading this, I'm thinking of SVR, but AC Brotherhood is just as epic! I thought having new games waiting for me would be an easy breeze, but I guess its not. :lol:

Persona 4 Opening + Lyrics (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDrlqEbEEnA#ws)

So have you heard the rumours they were making a movie version of Uncharted? Well they've already casted the role of Nathan Drake. Is it the clearly obvious choice of Nathan Fillion? The guy who not only resembles the character, but who the character is almost built upon? The man who even expressed an interest in taking on the role? No, of course not. Instead, your Nathan Drake is played by um...Mark Wahlberg (http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2010-11-24-wahlberg-takes-lead-in-uncharted-movie). Decent actor, but he's no Nathan Fillion. Hollywood fail once again.  :thumbdown: Still don't believe about what I said of the two resembling each other?

Augh, there's nothing as annoying as having games translated into Norwegian. No, seriously. For some reason they've translated Assassin's Creed 2 and Assassin's Creed Brotherhood to Norwegian, and it makes it so frickin' awkward. You can set the in-game speech to English (and a bunch of other languages), and the subs too... but the menus, item names and everything else remain in Norwegian, and it's SO CONFUSING. Most of the expressions look really off, and some of it isn't even correct Norwegian 8D fffffffff. Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever played a game in Norwegian before o_o;; We just don't usually translate things like that here (which is why finding games for my mum is such a hassle, since her English is very poor).
Title: Re: The Gaming Postwhoring Thread
Post by: Tuffty on December 05, 2010, 10:12:39 PM
Well I've just played the worst demo ever. Dragon Ball Z Raging Blast 2. You pick up to 4 characters (seriously, who else would you pick but SSJ Goku?!) and then just throw you into the battle against an unrelenting AI. No tutorial section, you're just left to fend for yourself and work it out. And seeing as the AI is so much better, you're gonna have a hard time reading through the skill list and remembering that you need to press LB + A for a quick ascend and press RT+X but only if it's a rapid attack, cause you're screwed if it's not. No indication of whether or not your special moves work and I found button mashing never worked either. I imagine it's something I would learn and get better at in the actual game, but I'm totally not a fan after that. The character's look really off too, like they were drawn by some Akira Toriyama rip off merchant.

I quite like it when demos do that, though. I mean, demos shouldn't hold your hand and tell you how to play the games, they should be demos to showcase what the game will be about, and then you have to buy the game to be able to play it for real. It makes sense 8D If I remember correctly, the Bayonetta demo was like that as well?

I had amazing fun playing Super Mario Bros the Lost Levels last night, oh my god. The levels are so random, and you're better off just not killing any of the enemies XD;;; I completely lost it during a level, when I randomly yelled out "WILDCARD, BITCHES" - and at that instant, a frickin pink squid popped up out of nowhere (this was not an underwater level), I narrowly missed it only to fall off the next platform because I was laughing so hard :lol: It was too perfect :heart: Also playing things like Lost Levels makes it feel like I have my own private version of GameCenter CX, it's just so much fun~ :D I wonder if I'll ever make it to the last level ....

Ah the now famous 'if a series is losing sales or stagnating, give it a series reboot as a gritty prequel treatment' is now in effect once again. This time, it's Tomb Raider

Simply titled 'Tomb Raider', the reboot will be a prequel to the series, where player will live out the life of Lara Croft before she became the acrobatic cave-diver we know her as today.

“Simply titled 'Tomb Raider', the reboot will be a prequel to the series”

"Forget everything you know about Tomb Raider," said Darrell Gallagher, Head of Crystal Dynamics, "we are exploring things that have never been done before in the game."

According the Square-Enix, our young and inexperienced Lara Croft is travelling on a boat in a heavy storm when she is shipwrecked on an unknown island. It is here that she must learn to survive.

I will admit though, I'm curious about this game. Tomb Raider will always be a series close to my heart, and if they can make Lara do the same platforming, puzzle solving elements as before then I'd be all for it. Good thing she hasn't been Americanised and made into 'Laura'........yet.

It makes sense 8D If I remember correctly, the Bayonetta demo was like that as well?

I'm all for it myself. But in the Bayonetta demo at least you had a separate tutorial level to shows you through the ropes, and then the section of the game you could play through was an early stage of the game, in fact one of the opening levels, so it was rather straightforward to play through when pitted against the lower enemies of the game.

Raging Blast 2 however, doesn't have that luxury. It is a fighting game so the only way you can introduce a player gently into that game is if you tone down the computer difficulty or give a tutorial, because it is an unconventional 3D fighting game. The frustrating thing for me is, I know there's a tutorial section in the full game. I've seen it played out and yet it's not in the demo. Had there even been an option in that demo to lower the difficulty of the AI just so I could at least try these moves out rather than getting pummelled by the AI and losing the fight in less than the 3 mins they give you I would have appreciated it.

There's demo's like Bayonetta or Vanquish which are amazing indicators of what to expect from the game, challenging but not overly difficult and yet deep enough to make you want to come back to the demo and try out new things. I don't think Raging Blast 2 is one of them.

Rant over XD Anyway, I'm thinking of getting Rock Band 3. And possibly even the Pro Guitar XD
Title: Re: The Gaming Postwhoring Thread
Post by: coachie on December 08, 2010, 12:20:05 PM
Demos should explain gameplay, as should all games have a small tutorial, I mean whats the point of figuring it out all by yourself and getting frustrated and then end up not buying the game because of that.
Maybe they left it out of DB because they expect that people who play DB games have played all the previous DB games and know how it works.

Began Majin in the Forsaken Kingdom yesterday, I liked the demo, but it got quickly frustrating for me, mainly because of the Night/DAy shifts, didn't know it had that feature. Coming into a new puzzle area during the night is really fucked up.

Also began Infinite Undiscovery, I knew it had real time battle (what I'm not a big fan of), but I'm over challanged with the controls, I keep on pressing the wrong buttons over and over again, argh.

FFS there's another game I want to play! Lost Odyssey, my word I think I'm gonna go broke XD

They've confirmed a demo for Dead Space 2 in two weeks, should be interesting. But in much more exciting news, Yu Suzuki has hinted that the concept for Shenmue 3 exists:

Quote
"Shenmue 3 doesn't expand outward, but inward. A lot of the dialogue is used for the main character and especially dialogue with Shenhua [the girl]. They [Shenhua and Ryo] talk about a lot of different, deeper things.

"This is not actually in the game, but an example to give you an idea of what I mean by deeper dialogue: when Shenhua and Ryo are at home, Shenhua will ask Ryo if he would like to drink tea or coffee and the player will select one or the other. Or, Shenhua will ask Ryo a hypothetical question like: 'There are four animals; a monkey, cat, dog and bird. You are crossing the river but you need to leave one behind. Which one will you leave behind?"' And the player has to choose one.

"Shenhua will ask lots and lots of questions like these and the answers will get stored in the game and affect the outcome of the player's relationship with other characters. It's like a personality test. For example, the person who leaves behind the monkey is the type of person who leaves their wife."

SEGA put an end to the expensive, revered Shenmue series after a second Dreamcast instalment. Simply, sales didn't justify the investment.

Today, Yu Suzuki is at work on the Shenmue licence once again, but as a mobile game for Yahoo - a project dubbed Shenmue City.

"We can't say never," Suzuki said of the possibility of one day developing Shenmue 3. "This topic steps into sensitive territory, but history hasn't always been kind to SEGA and there were some difficult years, sales-wise. Business was tough, and they couldn't take risks on big titles."

I have both of these games as well, but haven't played them yet, just thought I'd start with IU, no special reason.
Man that first quest to open the door in the shrine took me ages to figure out, I thought I needed Items, turns out I have to use the Connect Ability with Rico. And then I go inside and get killed XD

Yeah it took me ages too and I gave up at one point resorting to like anything possible. Must have ran around that first area a couple dozen of times before I finally figured it out.

Last Remnant is probably my favourite to play just because there's so much choice within the battle system and gameplay. LO is a generic RPG with some really strong plotlines. Shame I couldn't get much further than Disc 2 due to it freezing at a certain point ><

You say it, I didn't count how often I went back and forth between the village and that damn door! At one point I thought it meant I had to fight the dragon in front of the village or that the enemies maybe dropped different items in the darkness. Good thing is, I earned some money and leveled up.

I heard there is a lot of text to read in LO, that's the main reason I pushed it back, otherwise it would have been my first choice (or Resonance of Fate) On my old tube squinting my eyes at tons of text is a pain in the ass. Thought I'd wait till I get myself a nice big HD tv next year.

There was quite a bit of reading to do but no more than any other RPG really. I want to actually get my own Xbox 360 and play those 2 games again and might actually give Infinite Undiscovery another try. But definitely wanna play through Last Remnant again. I loved the battle system. Some of the battles were goddamn AMAZING!

Finally cleared up some space to try out the Enslaved demo. Heard conflicting reports when it came out about a dodgy framerate, stiff combat animation. While I was certainly more aware of it had I not read those comments before, it still didn't stop me really enjoying it. Those were some pretty epic setpieces and it looks like it tells a good story. Facial animations look amazing. Definately interested in trying it out. Still not happy with the developers making the next DMC game though XD

Also tried out the Tenchu Z demo. Random I know but I was browsing through the list and just thought why not?! It's bad, combat's probably worse than I imagined it and the AI offers absolutely no challenge at all. Now that's a series I think could do with a rethink. Make a new one set in the same time period but plays like Assassin's Creed. Would be amazing.

I'm currently watching the VGA, and I think its bullshit how NPH won the award for best human performance from a male (voice-acting. lol) Talk about favoritism for the VGA host. His voice-acting was a joke compared to the other nominees. I'm not hating on NPH (I'm not a fan but he's someone I respect), but that award should have go to someone else.

And there was no debut of Saints Row 3!! Volition said they would debut it at E3 '10. E3 came, but apparently it wasn't ready. Volition then said that they would debut it at VGA '10. I was looking foward to this December day, thinking it would be a far away. It was a long time, the day comes, and no freaking debut!! :angry:  Does this mean I gotta wait til E3 '11!?  :banghead:

If you're a fan of Twin Peaks I strongly recommend you try and get a hold of Deadly Premonition for the Xbox360 :lol: The connection is obvious. The game looks and feels like a PS2 game, but don't let that stop you, it just adds to its quirkiness. And it's got plenty of quirkiness. This is the kind of game that manages to be over the top in a good way. The controls are kind of clunky, but playing it on easy removes a lot of frustration. I really enjoy the reaction-button sequences. I've played through the opening and parts of the first day, and the script so far is hilarious.

If this isn't enough to convince you, I can also add that the game has leaderboards. You can be best in the world at having the most number of shaves. Yes, you read that right.

Never played DP but I did watch a playthrough on Giant Bomb. As a game it looks like it has a lot of faults, dull combat in particular, and it certainly looks antiquated, but it definately has it's own charm. I think Francis York Morgan is one of the finest characters to come out of gaming in a long time. Doesn't fit in at all to a video gaming stereotype, completely unique, bizarre and as you'll see as the game progresses, complex. Truly a memorable character.

Oh and also, FK in the coffee. Clear as a crisp spring morning! :lol:

I finished AC Brotherhood. (You don't have to worry about spoilers while I share my two cents on the ending).
I've read about ppl complaining/upset about the ending, since it was a "cliffhanger" and it didn't give many answers." I think it ended well. How much can they give away? Hold your pants up ppl, AC 3 is definitely coming. Out of all the AC games, I believe the first game's ending was the only clifhanger out of the 3. It had ppl going mad! I went mad.  At least with the endings of AC 2 and AC Brotherhood, we knew bits and pieces of where the game would be headed.

For some weird reason I thought that there wasn't going to be an AC 2 after the first, but then in my mind I was like "well, there has to be one since the first game ended like that." I wonder what AC 3 will be like. I wonder if Desmond will be the main protagonist, or if we'll be introduced to another ancestor. I definitely think we'll be meeting someone based on what was said in the ending of Brotherhood.

^ Interesting. Can't wait to play it when I get my hands on it next week (my dad confided in me that it's one of my pressies XD). I heard people say the ending makes the series even more messed up which is pretty surprising cause it's already weird enough! As far as I know, AC was originally planned as a trilogy so the next one may be the last. Could only be Desmond if that's the case. But then you have such an wide range of eras to visit, and considering how successful the franchise is now I can only imagine that while Desmond's story may finish at AC3, there's certainly enough incentive to encourage other spin-off stories and let the franchise keep raking in the money for Ubisoft.

Picked up where I left off Devil Survivor recently after I finally got round to replacing my DS charger. I thought I may even have to restart the game as it's been so long, but surprisingly I picked up where I left off very quickly. It's still as fun to play as I left it, who knows what's gonna happen on Day 4? :o

And I guess it's a neat little milestone, but I reached 30000 gamerscore!

We just added the Humble Indie Bundle #1 into the Humble Indie Bundle #2!
This is a pretty large change, so it requires some explanation that can't be fit in a little box.

If you're an owner of one of the 180,000+ Humble Indie Bundle #2s already purchased before this announcement, you will find a complimentary Humble Indie Bundle #1 on your download page. I'd like to sincerely thank all of you for supporting the bundle and making it a success!

If you enjoy this gift of six additional games, please consider adding more to your order on your Humble Bundle download page.

For new customers
For new purchases of the bundle, the Humble Indie Bundle #1 is only unlocked if you pay more than the current average. If you'd like to pay under the average and increase your payment later on your download page, that will work too. You just need to increase the average at some point to permanently unlock the first Humble Bundle. This is not possible for gifts though, as the order amount is secret.

You will find a new slider that lets you decide how much you'd like to give to the five main HIB #1 game developers (Samorost 2 is a freebie).

A word about Steam
Our Steam keys for the Humble Bundle #1 are a little glitchy: they don't unlock Samorost 2 or the Mac versions of Gish and Aquaria. We will try to fix this but since it's ultimately out of our control, we can't make any guarantees. Additionally, we only have about 150,000 of them. I believe we will be able to get more, but currently, they are on a first come first serve basis. Also, no promises about activating your HIB #1 games on Desura at the moment.

Get your bundle! (http://www.humblebundle.com/)

I had to work hard to get them though! To get the head you need collect all the rings in the post-end game section before the credits roll. Which is harder than it sounds considering that a) you can't slow down or backtrack at all, Sonic is constantly running and b) should you fail, the only way to replay that section is to go through the final level again and all 5 of the bosses. It's quite a pain. And for the body, you need to get all 7 Chaos Emeralds and defeat the end boss again, which wasn't so bad.

Tried out the demo for a game called Grey Matter for the 360. The premise intrigued me, a youn female magician becoming an apprentice for a neurobiologist who appears to have discovered the paranormal after his wife's death. And as it turns out it's a proper old school point and click adventure game. Except the interface is handled accordingly for the console so you actually control the character using the left analog stick and any points of interest such as an object or person is now brought up via a menu by pressing LT/RT, and you make your selection via the right analog stick. It wasn't bad actually, story was interesting enough, but like any adventure game, I really need to get into the right frame of mind before I play otherwise I'll get bored quickly. It's a long demo too, was playing it for an hour and still not finished. I would recommend people at least give it a try.

I think my PSP would get a lot more love and attention if I only could figure out how to hold it without accidentally turning it off, and/or hold it for long periods of time without getting incredibly sore wrists. Auuugh.

At least Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep is amazing and really goes above and beyond any expectations I had of it @_@; I've been playing the spin off Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days on the DS not too long ago, so I'd gotten used to KH being all about mission based repetitive madness. So refreshing to have a real KH to play with, the combat is intense, and I really love the command melding feature and everything~ I even like the silly board game mini-game 8D. Win, win, win.

So I've got a few games I wish to buy, some have been on my list for some time now, but considering where I am with games at the moment, I think maybe being one would be the best option. The list at the moment is:

Rock Band 3
Fist of the North Star : Ken's Rage
Vanquish
Dragon Quest IX
Resonance of Fate

Decisions decisions  :panic:

See DQIX only entered my mind recently cause it's showing up in the end of year lists as Best DS Game or even as Best RPG. Plus it would be good for me as I can play it on the train each morning. Or you've got RoF which is an unconventional JRPG that really interests me. But then you've got Rock Band 3 and it's huge list of songs I'd like to play. Or Vanquish cause it's made of awesome. Or Kens Rage cause you make people explode with your fists.

....Might have to make it two games :nervous

Cool, I didn't know there was a demo for the game, I have it on my radar for quite a while now and thought about getting it, since it really interests me and it's cheap but there are so many games I still have to play.
I'll try the demo, maybe I can make up my mind afterwords.

FUUUUUUUU I can see why I gave up on playing Sonic 4, this boss is just... WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME!?!  :banghead:

1) does the sonic 2 boss thing, okay, I can deal with this.
2) gets shield around him, so after a ton of dying, I realise you need to get the claw first, ok, yeah I can see this is reasonable, just about.
3) makes THE ENTIRE FLOOR DISAPPEAR so you fall to your death.

WHAT. WHAT DO YOU WANT!?!?!? I CAN'T FLY!!! FUCK YOU DR ROBOTNIK!! FUCK. YOU.

not to mention that it takes forever to even get to this point and sometimes I don't even make it, so I have to do it over and over and over AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

edit:

beat it and I never, ever will, ever again, what a load of shit, honestly, how can this be fun for anyone D:

Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep is now kicking my ass and laughing at me while doing so. God damnit, why, whyyyy have like three versions of basically the same boss fight in a row?

I'd start over, but I'm on (what I assume to be) the last boss of Terra's storyline T_T; If I only get through this fight I get to move on to one of the other stories... which should be fun. ... IF I CAN JUST MAKE IT THROUGH THAT LAST FIGHT... adhjkhkjsaghkjashgkja

I swore I wouldn't look at a guide for hints, but if things don't improve after some levelling up (which is a boring, boring task), it's either looking at guides or starting over T_T;

Ok so deal with my copy of Fist of the North Star is quite long winded but essentially, I had originally bought it 2 weeks ago off a reputable e-commerce website and despite promises of dispactching within 24 hours, no such thing happened with my copy. I waited 3 days, gave up and submitted a cancellation request and went to an Ebay seller selling it cheaper. Well of course I get an email back from them saying my order already been submitted so I couldn't take it back.

Long story short,  my copy of FotS did come within 3 days. This other company, the much biggger one? Sent out a dispatch email yesterday telling me to expect it arriving within a week. Got an email this morning to say that there was an unknown error in delivery and it still hasn't been sent out, with no confirmed date.

Never ever shopping there again, which is ok cause I rarely do anyway. So now as my item has been 'dispatched' I've been charged for it, and yet nobody knows what's happened to the order itself. Soon as it arrives, I'm sending it straight back for a full refund.

After watching the commentary stuff with orange box it sounds like the way they make a game like Half Life with such an immersive world and to have the the player always in control takes an amazing amount of work and play testing. They probably figured out they could focus more on other projects and sell just as much.  :(


But Half Life is their baby, so whenever they do bless us with something new there it will be amazing and revolutionary no doubt.

Wow this sounds really cool. It's an unlockable game mode for Dead Space 2 so don't read what I'm about to post if you want to discover it yourself:

*SPOILERS*

Dead Space 2 has an unlockable "Hardcore" mode you get when you complete the game. Less ammo? Check. Stronger enemies? You betcha. But this is where it gets pretty intense. You can only save the game 3 times. For the whole game. That's...crazy. But really cool too, nowadays video game deaths result in going back to a near checkpoint or being brought back stronger than ever if they heap more health/ammo or whatever at you. So imagine the fear you'd get at having to really conserve your ammo and where every battle is going to be a struggle cause if you die, then you may lose hours of progress.

http://akbstrip.jp/ (http://akbstrip.jp/)

Quote from: siliconera
Acquire, creators of Tenchu, Way of the Samurai and Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman! (What did i do to deserve this my Lord), have a new PSP adventure game. Akiba’s Strip takes place in Akihabara, Tokyo’s electronics haven. Vampires called Kageyushi take the appearance of people and roam inside the electric town. Two groups protect the district in different ways. NIRO hunts the vampires and a vigilante brigade help find missing people. The two factions work together to keep Akihabara safe.

In Akiba’s Strip you play as an 18 year old student who was attacked by the Kageyushi and now carry a serious illness. The unnamed protagonist cosplays as a hobby and you can change into different outfits in the PSP game. Rui, a slender girl who doesn’t like to laugh, saves the lead characters from the Kageyushi. Satako is a member of NIRO and is the main character’s connection to the group.

Akiba’s Strip is designed to look like the Akihabara of today. Players will see and visit familiar locations including AsoBit City, DosPara, Toranoana, and Messe Sanoh.

Asaura, author of the light novel Vanilla – A Sweet Partner, is helping design the game’s scenario. Tanu is the character designer. Akiba’s Strip’s genre is action adventure. The game is slated for release on April 14 in Japan.

If the Tactics Ogre SE is anything to go by, then in Europe, it will only be £5 more expensive than the normal edition. Hopefully it will work out the same way for Dissidia Duodecim.

Here's an awesome piece of trivia I heard:

In the Mortal Kombat video game series, the character Rain wears a purple outfit; Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon is a known Prince fan. Rain is also referred to as the "Prince" of Edenia.

Well I completed Fist Of The North Star : Ken's Rage. All 13 hours of it. Oh no, wait. I only just beat Kenshiro's main story campaign. There's also Rei's, Mamiya's, Toki's and Raoh's left to do. Oh and there's Dream Mode as well which is essentially a Dynasty Warriors campaign and I have to do that with..*deep breath* Kenshiro, Rei, Mamiya, Toki, Raoh, Shin, Thouzer and Jagi. Have to level them all up to the maximum as well. And then there's the challenge mode which is essentially a boss run except I took on the first boss, Jagi, and he killed me with a few attacks. :o Need to be really careful, but I know straight away Roah's going to be torture for me XD So there's a lot of life in it yet. Which is just as well, beating up post apocalypic smack talking thugs into a bloody pulp never gets old.

Me and my nephew downloaded a few demos to try out. Monsters vs Aliens was very meh (though my neophew love it so to each his own I guess). Lego Harry Potter is ok. But what I was really surprised at was the quality of Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 2. That game's pretty good! I have no clue at all about Naruto, but the fighting was pretty good. More than that though, the game looks spectacular. It looks just like the anime, it's really impressive. :o

Naruto Ninja Storm games are really good. I still need to get the 2nd one but I completed the first one 100%

Just preordered Pokemon White and at the same time brought the Dissidia Strategy Guide because it was cheap. Waiting to see how much the Legacy Edition of Duodecim is on GAME

Going into it I thought a lot of them were going to be difficult. They were not, however, as bad as I thought.
Pickle Park was probably the only one that had me sweating bullets at the end. 1400 guests with no advertising is pretty lame.
I only had like 1436 guests at the end so I was glad to see that one was over. :nervous
Canary Mines was also surprisingly difficult. :?

The only COD character that should definitely be there is Captain Price. He's a classic and has been in every COD game from the beginning. I honestly don't even remember "Soap" MacTavish or "Ghost" Riley are and I played through those games. :lol:

As great as the Half Life games are I'm never sure Gordon Freeman should be high on character lists. You never see or hear him. He's whatever the player thinks he is. It's like having Commander Shepard on the list or something. Ratchet and Jak should include Clank and Daxter respectively, everyone knows they are the interesting and funny ones. Also Spyro should be much higher IMO. Just ignore the post PS1 stuff he kicked butt and those games on the PS1 were amazing.

Basically those lists always end up being the most popular mascots not the best characters but eh who cares.

Fist of the North Star's Challenge mode is ridiculous. Essentially a boss run between the 'Hokuto Four' or the 'Nanto Five' you're asked to fight each one in succession until the end and preferably in the shortest time possible. But here's the thing, I can't get past the first one in each! XD The boss characters have their attack and defense boosted up incredibly, to the point where if they land a combo on you, you can count your sorry ass goodbye. Absolutely crazy, I have no idea what I'd do when it comes to fighting Raoh who has (seemingly) unblockable projectiles. Wish I could unlock Raoh or Thouzer already, they're badass characters.

Got Dead Space 2 for my birthday. That game is crazy and I'm only 30 mins into it *LOW SPOILER* That dude's face just burst open in the first 5 mins of the game!! WTF?! :o :o Good stuff, playing on Survivalist difficulty seeing as I played through the first game. I thought anything below that would kill suspense, and the Zealot difficulty not only sounds really hard, but it gives me an incentive to try out with a New Game + should it take my fancy. I'm properly creeped out by it when I thought I wouldn't be. Lights out, volume up, it's the best way to play it. Properly jumped out of my seat when wandering through that dark room and the TV suddenly switched on. :lol:

If there's any business practice which I hate in the games industry, it's not patching a somewhat buggy game after release, it's not even DLC announced before the game comes out. It's retailer exclusive pre-order bonuses. LA Noire is the next to fall victim to it (http://www.giantbomb.com/news/rockstar-details-la-noires-pre-order-bonuses/2953/)

I played a 3DS today!!

It was pretty cool! I didn't feel sick and my eyes didn't hurt at all! I had the 3D up to full, and I just held it the same as I hold my DSlite and the 3D effect was totally focused the whole time, if you tilt it, yeah it will go out of focus, but it's pretty easy to keep it focused!!

I was playing a 3D camera game where targets and monsters would appear in 3D, from a "?" card the guy put on the table irl, and I was moving the 3DS around to look inside of this 3D box that looked like it really was there and moved in relation to me.
There was even a target inside the box that I shot and I had to move the 3DS to get to it, cool fun!!

I'm going to get one for sure! (I always was, probably, haha) but I'm positive now.

The 3D is very clear and sharp, I think the screen is as bright & crisp as a PSP's, I might get Nintendogs & Cats or Street Fighter 4, both would be cool!

Also it's very light! I had my DSlite with me for the Pokemon event and I noticed no different in weight or unit size.

I've been thinking about asking my mom to mail me Wind Waker, or whether I should come back to school with it after Spring Break.

It's my favorite Zelda game, and I've beaten it 5 times. As much as I love that game, there are just certain points in it where I'm like, "fuck, I gotta do this shit again. How frustrating." I'm sure everybody has those moments with their favorite games.

It could definitely keep me well occupied in my bored moments.

The other thing is, since Spring B is getting closer to the end of the school semester, I've thought about taking the Wii back home. I don't have much games for it. The only thing I'm looking forward to is Skyward Sword. Other than that, my Wii has started to bore me..... :(

Fallout 3 is my favorite game of the generation so hopefully they implement stuff from that.

I babysat for some kids not much older than that back in High School and one of them whipped me in perfect dark which made me kind of mad. I used to be great at that game. That was 6 or 7 years ago so by now he's probably one of those 13 year old Call of Duty savants or something . . .

My l33t skills in COD : Black Ops got me noticed by a clan I joined in a random TDM last night. Guy I was talking with proclaimed to be No.1 on GameBattles in COD : WaW. Still don't know whether he was telling the truth or not. Anyway, regardless of rank, he said he played in a lot of pub matches and said I could easily hold my own. He even asked if I would join them. But I had to decline, too much work and other games going on right now that I couldn't dedicate all my free time to BO. Besides, me and a group of mates I regularly game with tried the whole GB thing and I found it incredibly tedious and frustrating. Still, rather flattering though! XD

Sadly no :(
You can only choose one of the optional answers to the girls questions or requests... or decide one of the actions, if your Idol is in trouble.
I like the concept of the game as well... What kind of choices you make as a Producer for your Idol Unit, as of that will be the mood of your Idols.

A publicity stunt intended to advertise upcoming shooter Homefront ended up backfiring this week when 10,000 red balloons, released by publisher THQ into the San Francisco skies, wound up in the waters of the Bay itself, angering local environmentalists.

Scheduled for release on March 15, Homefront takes place in 2027, and sees a belligerent and heavily armed North Korean army invades the mainland of the United States. The balloons were released in a mock protest against the game's fictional North Korean regime, and coincided with this week's Game Developers Conference taking place in downtown San Francisco.

But what goes up, must come down -- and thanks to San Francisco's notoriously dreary weather, it didn't take long for the thousands of balloons, weighed down by windy, rainy conditions, to wind up touching down in the Bay. Pictures of balloon-covered waters flooded the Internet, and local residents took to Facebook to express their outrage.

The balloons carried the name of retailer Gamestop, but in a statement the retailer denied responsibility, saying it had no prior knowledge of the stunt and pointing the finger at publisher THQ instead.

And THQ? In a statement, the publisher's vice-president of corporate communications, Julia MacMedan assured concerned San Franciscans that the balloons wouldn't be troubling them for long.

"The balloons that were released are completely biodegradable," she told Cnet. "They start the process of biodegrading as soon as they're blown up with the helium. There should not be any environmental concerns." Regardless, the publisher has hired a clean-up crew to deal with the mess.

Local environmentalists weren't impressed, pointing out that, biodegradable or not, the latex balloons could still pose a threat to wildlife while they undergo the decomposition process -- and Cnet further observes the culprits could face prosecution under anti-littering laws.

With thanks to Pika, I rediscovered the joys of playing Virtua Fighter 5. Now that's a proper fighting game right there. Once pike gets his stick sorted out we're gonna have some epic clashes that'll crack the skies and part the seas. Or make me throw my controller away in rage, whatever comes first. Played against 2 Japanese players after him though and got thoroughly spanked by them. But they complimented me afterwards. That's the cool thing about VF's multiplayer, you really do get pitted against players across the world if you wanted to. Sure the connections are bad, but I dunno, I think it's pretty cool. And I've never come across another rude VF player before. They always send 'gg' messages afterwards or reply to anything I send them, the competition seems quite sporting.

Lotsa nice graphics. And wide variety in gameplay (metal gear style. LOL :P). Maybe even a little too wide. :roll:

Did you try messing with the power adapter and video connections? Hard Drive too. I've gotten errors codes a couple times but have been able to get it going again by unplugging the power adapter or hdmi cable. I also had one when I plugged a usb flash drive into one of the usb ports while it was booting but just had to reset it in that instance.

I've been pretty lucky I think, my big problem is the DVD drive is close to shot so I get "Error: This disc is unreadable", crashes every couple minutes or the games just run like absolute shit. :angry: But I can still install and they actually work that way. Crazy. :lol:

Actually all my systems I've ever owned still work with the exception of my first Dreamcast, which I soldered a mod into (so I could play Shenmue imported before they had boot disks). That one overheated and bricked after 5 years or so. But I blame myself. x_x




Anyway haven't played many games lately but picked up Crysis 2 yesterday. Really awesome. I like how immersive it is. They mix up the action with times that slow things down. Chances to just stroll around and enjoy the scenery or poke around rooms and stuff. I love games that do that. And man the outdoor area's are freaking really really pretty O_O

The suit is really fun, you feel like a bad ass. You can put on armor and run at an enemy who shoots you a bunch of times and he scream's stuff like "oooohhhhhhHHHHHHHH MYYYYYYYY GOD HE'S INVINCIBLE!"  XD

Seems like a really long game too which is nice this day and age of 4 or 5 hour single player games.

Watched the Yakuza 4 Quick Look on Giant Bomb and that game looks really cool. Very delibrately paced though, in the 50 min footage it was non-stop cutscene after dialog after running for a bit into more cutscene. But then they were going down the critical path, they only really explored the places near the end. The city looks incredible. It does seem like the next best thing to Shenmue.

So, anyone else get the 3DS at launch? 8D I hadn't decided on whether I wanted one or not, but then bie brought one home, and I couldn't stand watching all the fun he was having.

My birthday was yesterday, so I figured I could splurge and buy myself a really nice birthday present :lol:

I'm incredibly impressed with the system. I have to say I was skeptical of how the 3D effects would work, but it's actually really entertaining~ The mini-games that come pre-loaded on the device are amazing fun. I can't wait until the Download Store/Virtual Console thing opens. LINK'S AWAKENING! *o*

Anyway, I got Nintendogs + Cats as my launch game, and I'm very happy about it :D I have the original Nintendogs too, but am apparently still not sick of playing around with virtual pets :lol:

As much as I like Yakuza they really need to update some things. They have made the cutscene and battle transitions a little more seamless but it still feels like a last gen game mechanics and production wise. They need to better the pacing as well. Make objectives more clear because there are always a couple points in the games where I get stuck and have no idea what I'm supposed to be doing to move the game forward. For me it's nothing like Shenmue but it does have the best story and characters of any kind of JRPG type game (or any game at all for that matter) and the beat em up fighting is just so satisfying. Oh and the people that do the dialog translation are damn hilarious XD love the taunts and stuff they come up with.

Playing Dead Space 2, in the dark, is the only way to play that game. Had this great moment where the AI bitch put me on lockdown with those lasers of hers, then I see a necromorph jump down just outside the lasers. I waited to see if it would jump into them but I realise there's a window beside him. I put two and two together and I was like, 'Oh no no no no no no!' and sure enough the necromorph jumps into the lasers and blows the window, decompressing everything and sending me frantically scrambling to shoot the switch to bring up the barriers before I get sucked out into space. Awesome.

I'd also just like to say that it is a stunning looking game. That elevator ride going up and you can see the rest of the station and Saturn in the background? It was incredible.

I sure did! The sad thing; I forgot how to play her mini-game.  :banghead:  The fail scene is quite funny cuz she's all like "you fell asleep", and then the main character just shakes his head in shame. The instructions only show up the first time you play. I rushed through them.  I played the same game in Yak 2. Those skills have left my brain. :doh:

and that's exactly what I did. Yakuza is the only PS exclusive title that interests me. I basically get all my games for the 360. I got Mafia 2 in hopes of building up my PS3's library, but the game disappointed me in the end (I sold it for in store credit towards Yakuza 4  XD).

Having just played through it, I think the events leading up the end of Chapter 7 in Dead Space 2 is some of the most visually and audibly stunning moments you'll ever see in a video game. God only knows what's lined up in store for me in the chapters to come.

I thought about buying the game awhile ago; The DX version for Gamecube, since I don't own a Dreamcast. I always got the impression that DX was very much altered from the original. If it isn't, then I might actually buy it (after all this time).

Just started playing Radiant Historia on the ds. It reminds me of those old nes RPGs. Decent battle system. Like how I can change the battle order, including switching with the enemies to plan out combos. It does feel like I'm playing two separate games when going back and forth between two diverging timelines, yet it's still one game where one action from one timeline affects the other and vice versa. I also like how I can go back to any point in the past and have my characters' stats remain the same. The only thing I hate is having to skip over the same scenes again and again when time traveling.

Ok so I've got a £30 voucher for a game shop just asking to be used up. Thing is this game shop is only found in Belfast and it takes me round the good part of an hour to get there. I am heading to the city tomorrow for a job interview and the game shop is close by. Problem is, I've had my eye on Portal 2 for a long ass time, and would like to get it when it's released, except it's out on Friday over here. So here's the dilemma, do I:

a) Use the voucher to get another game (I do want to get Vanquish. Badly.)
b) Save the voucher in the hope I can go back at a later day to get Portal 2 (assuming they have plenty of it in stock)

Decisions.

They did have a stand for Portal 2 in the shop as well and I got some hands on time with it. Couple of people watching me tackle one of the early puzzles. I even heard someone go "Ooooh" when I solved it haha The guy serving me was the nicest guy too, he and I talked about Vanquish and how awesome Bayonetta was.

A friend of mine lent Splinter Cell Conviction to me and I gave him The Orange Box so he could play Portal. Conviction is cool and all, but I can't take the bad guys seriously. Some quotes I've heard from patrolling guards

"COME ON OUT FISHER!"
"WE'RE GONNA FUCK YOU UP FISHER!"
"YOUR DAUGHTER WAS A WHORE FISHER!"
"I'M GONNA HANG YOU UP NEXT TO THIS PAINTING!"

It's not threatening, it's just comical. Like Pika pointed out in this comic to me (http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2010/4/16/) :lol: You think every guard is gonna want to give away their position like that to a well trained assassin?

Post by: Tuffty on April 29, 2011, 11:56:44 AM
TOZ: I have 3 recommendations for you, all of which I've played and in no order:

The World Ends With You - Created by Tetsuya Nomura (he of FF fame) it's not your average JRPG. It's set in an alternate modern day Tokyo for one where those involved are subjected to some kind of Battle Royale esque game where they have to fulfil goals within a set timeframe otherwise they die. The game itself has the most unique combat system around where you collect 'pins' that each grant different abilities so you can customise your character however you want that takes full advantage of the capibilities of the DS so you're moving around the area using the stylus but are also using it to make a slashing motion to cut, dragging and throwing objects at enemies with telekenisis and even blowing into the mic to make a tornado. On top of all that you use the top screen and the dpad to control a 2nd character who assists you. It sounds like a lot to take in and it can be at first, but you will definately find your rhythm and can adjust the difficulty or have the top screen be AI controlled at any time with no penalty. To top it all off, it's an engaging story with some lovely stylish graphics and one of the best soundtracks in any game.

Shin Megami Tensei : Devil Summoner - This one's similar to TWEWY in premise, a group of teenagers who are caught out in Tokyo by a swarm of demons and must fight in order to escape a locked down Tokyo from an impending apocalypse. The combat itself is like an old school DQ game where it's in first person and plays like one too. There are other differences of course, you've seen the Endurance Run, you know how a SMT game works with elemental weaknesses and the like. It's all well done and makes another great playing RPG.

Mario & Luigi : Bowsers Inside Story - Another different combat engine that's a mix of turn based battling, but requires your absolute attention with specific button timings so you can't really grind your way through the combat. And it has platforming elements as well when you're outside of combat, much like a 2D Mario game. And it's a really charming and funny story as well.

@TOZ: For the past few weeks I've been trying Radiant Historia. It was created by Atlus, the same company that created the Shin Megami Tensei series games. Here's a trailer that pretty much sums up what the game is about:

Radiant Historia_ Time-Traveling Walkthrough (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frZRXs2WnBo#ws)

What they forgot to mention was that most enemy battles start when you make contact with them. You actually have a chance to strike them a few times, temporarily disabling them. It gives you a chance for a pre-emptive strike, which can help in forming the combos mentioned in the trailer. The battle system is turn based, but you can change the order in any way you want, even switching your turn with an enemy. There is a risk, however, that the enemies will attack the character that made the change, and will receive more damage before the turn change. Later in the game you will gain the ability to break the enemy's turn using "Mana Burst". Each character has a mana gauge that fills up when attacking, chaining combos, and taking damage. Once it filled up, you can use a "Mana Burst" attack.

I went onto COD4 multiplayer last night after a friend invited me, only to be brought into a hacked lobby with each kill getting me 3000XP and plenty of dumb bots to shoot with infinite ammo for it. Backed out of that shit and tried a normal Free for All game, 3 times actually, all of them hacked in some way. It's only after I switched the damn thing off that I realised that COD4 and MW2 multiplayer is just hacked to bits now, and Activision/Infinity Ward can't do anything about it cause there are just so many people doing it.

How did it come to this? COD4 multiplayer is classic, widely regarded by others as being classic, yet people ruin it by hacking? The biggest problem I have is who on earth goes along with it? Great, you got 10th prestige level due to illegitimate means, doesn't mean Megan Fox is going to descend from the sky and onto your lap. As I've said before, prestige level holds no weight in COD, it's not an indication of skill. People who wind up doing this are shit players anyway. And if they want to pay (PAY!!) hackers 800 MS points to get into one of these lobbies, then more fool them.

On that fighting game related note, Soul Calibur V has been revealed (http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2011-05-11-first-soulcalibur-v-details)

Quote
The game, set 17 years after Soulcalibur IV, features guest characters, Project Soul producer Hisaharu Tago told Christian Donlan for Eurogamer.

The main character is Patroklos, son of Sophitia. Patroklos is "inspired" by the gameplay of Sophitia, but is "sharper" and "more agile". He has new moves, but they're all inspired by Sophitia's.

V takes the Siegried ending of IV and builds upon it. Seigfried, now 39 years old, no longer wields the Soul Calibur sword.

V is described as a "generational shift", complete with new characters, but SCIV characters will return. "SC 1-4 was a continuous story," Tago said. "We want to make a generational shift with a new story this time."

The Soulcalibur series is famous for the inclusion of characters from other universes, such as Link from The Legend of Zelda and Yoda from Star Wars. Will other non-Soulcalibur characters feature?

"Difficult question," Tago said. "We will have guest characters as we did with Star Wars. Please stay tuned for more information on that."

V marks a shift from two-handed swords to short swords, Tago announced. The story includes "the enigma as to why the swords have become short swords".

The game's new fighting style is described as "lighter, sharper, and more elegant". The online mode has been improved with new features. "Gameplay in IV could be a little heavy, particularly when you were online – we wanted gameplay that was more fast and reactive," Tago said.

On the shift in gameplay: "Maybe the hardcore fans will be afraid that we lose the core of the gameplay, but that's not the case. And for new players it's nice to have gameplay that is more continuous – you don't need to wait as much between moves.

"There is quite some change in the gameplay from SCIV. The pace of the game has been improved, and the combos will be easier to perform, and the moves will be easier to pull out."

Elsewhere, Tago confirmed the create a character feature from previous games in the series returns, but refused to divulge details.

Namco Bandai is yet to show actual gameplay, but promised more information at E3 next month.

And this, I guess is concept art? It was posted on the producers twitter, so it's legit! :lol:

Me and a friend are trying to help a colleague find a new PC game to play and we've already suggested her a ton of games and we're running out of ideas XD

Oh and the most obvious choice Tomb Raider has too much fighting and not enough puzzles for her taste.
Fighting is ok, but it should be easy and puzzles and exploration should be the main focus..

Title: Re: The Gaming Postwhoring Thread
Post by: Tuffty on May 12, 2011, 12:39:16 PM
Never played it but from what I see it's a third-person action platformer much like Tomb Raider or Uncharted, but she wants more of an emphasis on the adventure side of things?

I think the best example I can think of would be a Zelda game. It's got the right mix of action and puzzle solving in each of it's dungeons. Or even Lego Indiana Jones! Those Lego games tend to have an emphasis on puzzles and simplified combat. Maybe she would like to shy away entirely from that kind of genre and go for an adventure game? Professor Layton is all puzzles or you can get something a bit more story driven like Phoenix Wright or Hotel Dusk. Or you can get something like Broken Sword (my all time favourite point and click adventure game) on the iPhone for dirt cheap.

Ah right, I can see how that might be awkward then XD I'm not so up to speed with PC games I'm afraid. Along the adventure game route, I guess you can go with a Telltale game like Back to the Future or the Sam & Max games. The only game that comes to mind with something like TR on PC would be Alice. Heard good things but I can't verify that.

There are no plans for a PC version of LA Noire at the moment, or so a Rockstar spokesman has said. (http://www.ripten.com/2011/05/07/rockstar-has-no-plans-for-pc-version-of-la-noire-brycew/)

Wait, Dirt 3 has rallying events like the old Colin McRae Rally racing games they made for the PS1/PS2? I am sold. Take my money Codemasters, you've done good.

Gonna see if I can pick this and LA Noire up on Monday. I've still got money on my Gamestop gift card to burn so I can put it towards that. It should ease my concern about paying full price for LA Noire especially, as I don't see much replay value in that game, thus I was a little concerned about paying full retail price for it.

You'd be right my friend! I didn't get DIRT 1 or 2 cause I don't think they had rally type events in them, DIRT 2 especially was billed as more 'xtreme' which kinda put me off it. But DIRT 3 totally has rally events as well as motorcross and the gymkhana events look really interesting and fun to play with. Add to that day/night stages, dynamic weather effects. Yeh, I'm in the mood for driving alright.

So yeh, I went out and bought Dirt 3 today XD Actually got it for less than half price as I used my Gamestop gift card to go towards it, so that was pretty sweet. Only played a few races but the handling seems good, but will need to get used to it. Gymkhana's tougher than I thought it would be! Multiplayer party games are a lot of fun, it's the perfect excuse for people to crash into each other, that's what people did on GRID constantly. Even if it wasn't a Demolition Derby event :lol: Think my time will be spent on the rally events and the like. You know, proper racing. And it looks gorgeous, so highly recommended. As I said, I hope to see a virtual representation of twissie in the crowd when I'm rallying in Norway XD

So with that Gamestop gift card I got Dirt 3 for less than half price and Vanquish completely free. I think it was spent well! :D

Nice one arun. What games are you specialising in then? Street Fighter or is it something else?

Never played the first few games in the series, but Bloodrayne Betrayal looks kinda neat at this stage, providing it lives up to it's promise of some kind of 2D HD Castlevania esque game

I'll probably go back to playing Guilty Gear, though I want to try to learn a new character. I played BlazBlue a few months ago with my friend who got me into GG. After that, I started thinking about playing again. I don't know what re-ignited it, but I've been thinking about it more recently. I just need to save up enough money to buy the games. Unfortunately, my arcade stick is broken.

I uploaded not only my first gaming video on Youtube, but my first ever vid! Such a shame then that the actual footage isn't impressive in the slightest :lol: It's from the YouTube feature built into Dirt 3 where you can take a section of your replay (30 secs max) and upload it direct to your account on Youtube. Neat idea but kind of let down by the fact that you are only allowed 30 secs at a time and not entire replays unless you use an HD-PVR to record gameplay. Also, you have to wait in a queue before the feature kicks in and even then uploading is pretty slow. So here it is, all 10 secs of a sweet corner I took in a Rally Cross event in Aspen. Perhaps the most interesting thing about that clip is seeing my avatar hang from the car window :lol:

I completed Dead Space 2 last night. Awesome game, hugely impressive. The last 2 chapters or so was just a pain though, you can tell that they just keep throwing the enemies at you and it's more difficult considering you don't find health and ammo as frequently as the early chapters. I guess I shouldn't be complaining, ammo conservation and item scarcity should be part and parcel of a survival horror game. 9 hrs playthrough in total, which doesn't seem like a lot, but I'll definately try it again on the Zealot difficulty and try to upgrade weapons, try out for some achievements and the like. I'd like to try to beat Hardcore mode. God help me though cause I died plenty of times in my first playthrough XD

I finally got past Shin in the Challenge mode in Fist of the Nort Star : Ken's Rage. It was a freaking epic fight, I was finally on equal footing with him but then Shin out of nowhere landed this combo on me that I thought for sure was going to kill me. But it didn't, I had a sliver of health left and I came back to win it. So with Shin past I was ready to take on the next Nanto master. However, I was expecting to start with full health but instead, you carry whatever health you had in the previous fight with you. Rei killed me in one hit. So I have to make it past 5 boss characters, all buffed up to the extreme with only one health bar to see me through? The last bosses being either Thouzer or Raoh? There's no chance I can ever do it. but I'll try!!

I promise I won't flood this topic with Dirt 3 videos, but I do want to share the latest one I uploaded cause I did this perfect drift around the corner in a rally event that gave me a semi erection :fap

There's strong suggestions that a Devil May Cry HD collection is coming this year (http://www.siliconera.com/2011/06/15/spanish-game-store-lists-devil-may-cry-hd-collection-with-box-art/)

Seriously, that sounds way too fucking cool. I think it'll be a PS3 exclusive so please please please pray there's a 360 edition in the works. Even if it is an exclusive then I urge you, please buy it. Show Capcom which DMC game you'd prefer to play rather than this rebooted garbage. It would make me happy! Wouldn't you want me to be happy?

All this talk of HD collections makes me realise how fucking cool an Onimusha HD collection would be. Again, unlikely considering it used a lot of pre-rendered backgrounds which may require redrawing....fuck it, doesn't even have to be HD! Just an Onimusha collection please!

I started playing some inFAMOUS since it was free, and I hadn't touched it until now.

It's pretty good, but also ANNOYING AS ****  :angry: lol

Like you'll walk to where you need to go, one enemy with a gun will show up, shoot you perfectly in the head constantly from far away, while you have to fire back with an incredibly innaccurate hand lighting which usually doesn't go far enough to hit this guy.
BUT THEN (and this always happens) other enemies, lots of them, will spawn in all directions, all with this crazy accuracy, pinning you down from all sides so you can't even take cover or anything, then you die...again..... and again..... AND AGAIN  :angry: :angry: :angry:

And this isn't even like a mission, or anything, this is just walking down the street or getting to places, I realise it does get easier the more abilities you have and you level up, but at the start it's just incredibly offputting and seriously annoying. I levelled up my character and just put all my points into upgrading health because I was so sick of this  :sweatdrop:

The challenge levels on Vanquish have seriously got me hooked. I keep going back and want to play more of it and improve upon my times. On top of that, I want to try the campaign again in Hard or God Hard. I think it may even be a suitable game to get 1000G's for. It's daunting at first to get used to the controls and the system but now, the more I play, the more I'm keying into the systems and mechanics so I can now jump over low cover, rocket boost and kick into an enemy and whilst in mid air, switch guns and shoot another robot below me in slo-mo. Makes any other 3rd person shooter look show as hell in comparison.

I ordered Resonance of Fate as well. I'm kind of bracing myself for a JRPG with a fairly poor story, but then the combat system is meant to be fantastic and it certainly looks good in the videos I've seen

Clearly, 1984 will happen, only on the initiative of Big Media rather than the government.

I cannot find thread about Fallout 3. It is very strange. Fallaut 3 is the best game, simply heads fall off, you just imagine, you buy a lot of beer and sit in evenings and  play to kill mobs, and graphics are ewasome great! the first time I generally just went crazy, much better than farcry 2 or stalker, DAD also plays, says - very well done!

Never really liked the idea of Flow or Flower, but the next game from that company, Journey, looks a lot more interesting to me. It looks like it has more substance to it that than the previous games I mentioned with minimalistic storytelling that suits Ico or Shadow of the Colossus so well and the art design is just really impressive. The Beta is out now for the PS3 if you want to see for yourself, but here's a playthrough of the beta so you can see what it's like just exploring the vast environments.

Awesome Series - Awesome Noire (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TsKi5ZvB64U#ws)

Last night I had one of those 'HELL YEH' moments that will surely live on in the memory. It's Dead Space 2, three enemies in front of me and incredibly low on ammo. I see I have the opportunity to make one shot, and only one shot, with the flamethrower's alternate fire. Had it missed, I would have been screwed. But it didn't, I took my time, took the shot, and the grenade launched and hit, engulfing all three necromorphs in flames. I felt pretty good after that.

Ah I have RoF lying around since release, shame I still haven't gotten around to play it.
My best friend loved it and was urging me into playing it, but I'm just not in the mood for a RPG and more for action games at the moment.

Well whenever the mood should strike you, I would highly recommend you play it. The gameplay is absolutely solid, the battle system is really interesting. Also, with arena combat, side missions aplenty, a cool gun customisation mechanic and treasures to be found, it's all what I could want in a JRPG. Oh and fashion choices which leads to a crazy amount of character customisation options that's prevalent even in cutscenes. Cause nothing strikes fear into the hearts of your enemies like a jungle camo skinned gun holster. Only thing preventing this from becoming a classic to me is the story. The characters are neat and engaging, but the overall narrative just isn't there and what little there is seems poorly executed. Maybe things will pick up later, I dunno. Love the look of the world.

Hearing Jeff Gertsmann mention Mini Moni in the latest Bombcast genuinely made me laugh out loud. Same when this week David mentioned Ebisu Muscats in the 4 Player Podcast. It's like when worlds collide!

^ He showed it? I was gonna say I wonder if it was the Mini Moni tambourine game thing he mentioned on The Hotspot. :P From what I remember David is a big Eri fan he talked about her graduation I think. Also Ryan and a couple others from IGN's Podcast Unlocked and Podcast Beyond talk about SNSD quite a bit. They also made SNSD name drops a couple times on bombcast that I remember. After Brad went to Korea Jeff or Vinnie asked if he saw SNSD or something. XD They also discussed the AKB48 phenomena pretty in depth on one of the early 8-4 podcasts. :thumbsup

One of these days I need to play Just Cause 2. Seems like my kind of game.

I think he is/was pretty hardcore into it? He does/used to do a podcast on Japanese Idols and stuff. http://newschoolkaidan.com/. (http://newschoolkaidan.com/.) I haven't listened to 4pp podcast much though, usually I'll get the E3 specials and top 5s so I can rage at their selections. :P

The new IGN xbox podcast I had never listened to but just randomly downloaded the Bioshock Infinite episode and all the sudden they started talking about 2ne1 Big Bang wanting to go to SM town SNSD ect. Surprised the hell out of me. :lol: So I started listening and in later episodes they talked about SNSD again a couple times people sent in emails asking favorites and stuff Ryan mentioned he likes Taeyeon and Sunny. Ryan and Stephanie said they would start a Kpop party podcast I think. Hell I would listen to it.

Podcast beyond I don't remember which episode it was at all (it was maybe like 6 months - a year ago) it was probably a episode related to some game I like or something somehow music came up and someone name dropped SNSD.

For me, its funny because you don't see Jeff getting into the whole JPOP scene at all, so it's quite surprising that he knows about Mini Moni, SNSD etc at all let alone use them in a funny context.

Ain't gonna lie, my Black Ops emblem is pretty sick. It used to be a really dumbed down Jack Frost from th Shin Megami Tensei games, but now it's the Sons of Anarchy emblem. Wish I could upload a photo of it, but imagine my playercard and the emblems on my guns having this emblem:

Think I need to take a break from Fist of the North Star for a while. It's still fun to play and there's still end goals in sight for me to continue with, but ever since I switched the difficulty to Hard it's kicked my ass on a number of occassions. I did a single playthrough of one of Toki's dream stages for 1hr 30mins, and when I finally get to Shin, the end boss, he manages to land a combo on me, a single combo, and it kills me. Meaning I have to replay it from the very start. And of course, playing it in Hard now means my pride won't let me change the difficulty again! XD So I'll rest for a bit. Even Kenshiro takes time to rest up. I think.

Don't forget the Xbox Live Summer of Arcade kicks off in earnest this week, with the arrival of Bastion

Bastion - Launch Trailer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TptJHeWngJs#ws)

Looks really interesting, it got a very positive review on Eurogamer and seen lots of good stuff about it on Giant Bomb. Will listen to both site's podcasts tomorrow, will hopefully try out the demo as well, and I may just very well decide to buy it.

Lollipop Chainsaw sounds like Onechanbara. Hope it's a better looking and playing game than that! Looks pretty cool, cheerleaders are always good. Zombie killing cheerleaders even more so.

Bought Bastion. Very good so far, pretty interesting actually. The Stranger who narrates it all is neat. He commented on how I kept on smashing crates for potential loot like it was a part of the story :lol: The graphics and the music is also really cool, I like it a lot. I encourage you all to try out the demo, it's free and it lasts a good long while too, maybe 20 mins into the story?

I certainly prefer GTA, but it's not like I declare undying loyalty to it above anything else. In fact competition is welcomed as it makes better games at the end of the day. I don't know, played SRII it at a friend's house but I wasn't sold on it. Yeh it was customisable and crazy but I wasn't really into it.

Skip to 04:30 in this vid and listen to the most messed up gaming story you'll ever hear. It's amazing.

It's got everything about action/adventure RPGs that I originally loved. I can't help but be reminded of Halloween Town in Kingdom Hearts when I look at the gameplay. I believe it's already been released in Australia, which means it's out everywhere else.

For me, the customization and craziness are the main appeal points of the game...they're what sold me on GTA San Andreas (along with the urban street gang theme) and I feel like Saints Row 2 serves as the best spiritual successor to that vibe.

I'm a sucker for combining deep customization with unrealistic/arcade-style gameplay, though...I think my most played games in the past 10 years were Nintendo-exclusive wrestling games (namely No Mercy and Wrestlemania XIX), Need for Speed Underground 2, NBA Street v3, and NFL Blitz 2001 (which I even went back to for a short while last year to create a Morning Musume team).

Saw this in the paper today, a gamer died due to deep vein thrombosis after a marathon session on the Xbox. (http://blog.games.yahoo.com/blog/866-xbox-addict-dies-from-blood-clot/)

I love video games, it's my favourite hobby but I don't think I've ever done a proper marathon session. To me, a marathon is like 4 hours, but even then I have to get up and stretch the legs a bit for the bathroom or food or whatever. I just don't have the patience or even the attention span to stick with a game(s) for that long. And all without bathing, sleeping or even eating? What's the point? The game will still be there if you switch it off. Hell,  leave it running and give yourself some time to sort yourself out before getting back to it.

Quote
"Kids all over the country are playing these games for long periods - they don't realise it could kill them,"

How much of a fear mongering statement is this? Whilst undoubtedly tragic this man passed away, this does seem to be a rare occurrence otherwise this would be reported on a lot more and have happened to a lot more people cause rest assured there have been hundreds if not thousands of people who have done the same as guy, for longer gaming sessions and over a wider period of time yet this is the first time I've heard of such a thing occuring. Anytime I hear of a death because of a gaming marathon it's usually down to being so engrossed they completely forego eating, sleeping or drinking.

I think we can all agree 12 hours is a tad excessive. Not pinning the blame on that guy, how was he to know this would happen after all, but it ain't natural to stay in one position for so long.

I've been watching this walkthrough for Amnesia and man is this game scary... I thought it was all talk but this game really plays on all my fears: being alone in the dark with something lurking around in the shadows.

Even if it makes my heart want to burst out of my chest I find it so fascinating and the story really intriguing. I like the minor details with how the player's teeth can chatter/grind and that your eyes can adjust to the darkness instead of just having a dark screen, it's really the minor details I love.

I don't plan on creating an Altair, but I have one sim whom I'm gonna treat as a guy joining the Order of the Assassins.
To add even more crack, this sim has a half brother whom he doesnt know exists....yet (and vice versa). I'm gonna dress up that sim in hero's clothes; more specifically, like Link from The Legend of Zelda.  The tale of warrior brothers. XD

Sorry for the now triple post but just want to say FU to the Devil May Cry reboot (again).

GC 11: Gameplay Debut - Devil May Cry (http://www.gametrailers.com/video/gc-11-devil-may/719043)

What's with the pause between animations? Completely ruins the flow. Even that move where Dante spins downwards in mid air while shooting his guns has been slowed down considerably. It looks ridiculous, like he's sinking in quicksand.  :thumbdown:

Also a quick note about Resonance of Fate. As a grown man 23 years of age, is it wrong of me to say that I rather enjoy dressing up the characters in various outfits? :nervous I've made Leanne look awesome with her red dress, dyed black hair and purple eyes. I'm gonna save that one and play around with everyone's appearance once again. The fact that there's a lot of clothing items to purchase and a lot of them are really expensive, is like some big carrot dangling on a stick to me. At the moment that's all there is for me to purchase as there's not much in the way of gun parts to buy and upgrade my weapons. But I don't see myself caring as much for the character customisation if your changes didn't persist across the gameplay and the cutscenes as well. But they do here, I like it a lot.

In fact, after unlocking style B for each character last night, and seeing the clothing items to buy that's unique for that style, there's some shirts I've seen for Zephyr that I could see myself wearing in real life, even the SEGA made ROF t-shirts. Sadly no pictures of them to show you all. I've looked but I don't see them being sold in real life either. I'd buy one!

Sorry, I kinda have to get this rant out of the way after reading this silly article of toadyism on the Devil May Cry reboot. (http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2011-08-18-dmc-devil-may-cry-preview)

I like Eurogamer a lot, but I found that preview to be horribly condescending to the long term fans like myself against this game for what I believe to be valid, understandable reasons. For the last time, IT'S NOT ABOUT HIS FUCKING HAIR.

Now I like to think I'm pretty open minded about games. I'll play every FF spinoff that comes up and while I don't like some, I'm happy to try out the next one. I think starting from a clean slate, be it in movies or games, can be refreshing and creatively invigorating. I don't even play DMC games for the story, but if they want to maybe put a focus on that aspect by making it more serious and character driven then that's fine with me. Or they could keep it the same, I'm ambivalent.

Considering all that, I think what I've seen and heard so far is just very disappointing. They're getting it at 30FPS but trying to emulate the feel of 60? Well how about you just ditch the engine and use one that is capable? I don't think 30FPS is necessarily the death toll for this game, but statements like that only go to piss people off who do care about something like that. At the very least, you're getting a game that's not even as smooth running as it's predecessors.

That preview can harp on about it as much as it wants to, but I've seen the gameplay trailer with my own eyes, and I've seen moves that don't smoothly link into each other, making rather awkward looking combos and I've seen nothing that builds upon past DMC games nor add any fresh concept. DMC3 had the styles and DMC4 had the Devil Bringer/Devil Trigger aspects. Maybe something will be included in the final game, but as seen in the EG preview, when you read the developer saying that the air juggling is what sets this one apart from past games, I'm left scratching my head thinking, haven't you played any of the games before? Seriously, they all had that as a main emphasis. I'd suggest the developer and the journalist take a look at some DMC4 combo videos on Youtube and see the difference.

Lastly, my gripe at this stage is with the actual character. I thought there's nothing wrong with old Dante, but new Dante now no longer does anything for me. The 'edginess' they're giving him just doesn't look good. It doesn't stand out, it's very much in line with what any other 3rd rate hack writer would come up with. If they're aiming for an unlikeable character right from the get-go, then my hat's off to them cause they're dong a bang up job of it. I'm not against antiheroes, but there's a way you can do it in which that's interesting and makes the story compelling. This doesn't look like it.

I played a bit around with the El Shaddai demo.
Visually it's like playing a LSD trip but I don't get the hang of the combat.
It seems I won't get far with button mashing in this game XD
I keep dying and dying over and over, this quick recover function works like 2 out of 5 times, don't know what I'm doing wrong.
The loading times when you die are imense, I hope this is only in the demo and not the actual game.

An American guy just kept on trash talking to me on Black Ops yesterday. He kept calling me garbage yet I was the one who won 3 FFA's in a row that he was in :lol: He chilled out eventually, though I think it was the pot more than conceeding I was the better player. :lol:

:lol: That reminds me of this time I was on Team Fortress 2- I kind of suck at games, especially with fighting and guns and stuff so I like to play as an engineer and be strategic rather than fight full on.
I can't remember its name- but I was playing in that area where it's possible to climb up and build a teleporter to a level above your teams pad... so when the round started I quickly put a level 1 sentry gun in front of the pad to act as a guard while I climbed up to set up better protection...
Then some dumb kid started running around trying to hit me as a scout and going on and on "DUMB ass- What the hell is the point in a level one thing? puny! What's wrong with you? you're so stupid?? WTFF" on and on-- meanwhile :lol: he was a scout and wasting his time chasing me....
I then realised he was actually just a bit of a noob because suddenly he started changing into pyro and other things and asking "Can someone tell me tell me what this one does?? how do I use my weopenss? what's the point of this game?? hmm?" :lol:

Dumbass kids playing online is just the worst. Haven't met one who isn't an attention whore with an annoying voice :lol: If I was you Meanie I'd have switched to the other team and killed him a lot :lol:

^ I was tempted to switch my mic on and say "dude it's called strategy!"/"Dude I'm trying to climb up there and own people, shut up!" but I get way too shy about speaking on there- especially if a load of guys suddenly went "OMGass there's a girl online???  :bleed eyes: " or something... :lol:

All the entrances at Koelnmesse were closed today because it reached its limit for visitor numbers! :shocked
That meant for me, I couldn't get in today.. meehhh :cry: And one bad news: I deleted accidently all my photos on my mobile phone that I took there at gamescom! :cry:

At least I could save all the photos of the Sonic Merchandise from Sega's stand and all the Retro consoles from the Retro Gaming Area, I took there...  :bleed eyes: Will upload them later and show it to you all! :3

But I can tell you these things I saw there from the past two days: The stand of Sega was made that it looked like the Green Hill Zone of Sonic's games (as for celebrating the 20th Anniversary *cough*) and there was even a XXL Sonic! °_°. Sony's stand looked like a beach and Nintendo...? Nintendo did nothing... just plain white! Well... but they had a 3DS Location for all of the Gamers, who wanted to haunt some Streetpass Mii's. Microsoft is the same with their XBOX and Kinect: Plain green.

The photos:

First, the Sonic Merchandise from Sega's stand:

Nice one Ayako!

You know, I know the 3rd entry was garbage but fuck it, I want another Dino Crisis game. DC1 was all about surviving, it was scarier, harder to conserve ammo etc whereas DC2 was all action focused. More ammo, more weapons, more variants of dinosaurs and just more dinosaurs in general. Both really satisfying in their own ways. An HD collection of both would be pretty sweet.

I overwrote my 96.77% game!

I still have the achievements, but I gotta do most of those achievement-earning activities again just to reach 100%.  :banghead:
A rant on my favorite game ever, a game I thought I would never have any complaints towards...Bully for 360.
I understand doing those activities to get me the achievements, but at the same time, some of them are so random that I don't understand the point of them counting towards 100% completion.  I know there are players who refer to guides, but what about those players that don't? The ones that want to do everything by themselves? How the hell is that player gonna figure out that he/she needs to drink 100 sodas or fail five classes in order to get 100%?! There's really no indication of that in the game.
Title: Re: The Gaming Postwhoring Thread
Post by: Tuffty on August 21, 2011, 08:04:51 PM
I have that same issue with games like Final Fantasy, where sometimes finding rare weapons and items is so obscure that you can't possibly do it without a guide. Like FFXII for example, the only way to get one of the best weapons in the game is if you complete it without opening a single treasure chest. How could you possibly know that until it's too late?

Title: Re: The Gaming Postwhoring Thread
Post by: thatonezombie on August 22, 2011, 07:51:51 AM
Depends on the game for me if I want to complete it 100%. Something like LA Noire I wanted to find all the clues but missing the questions didnt bother me unless I only got like 1.

It might also be just I don't care about 100% a game anymore. Maybe because as a kid I had the time or the patience  :lol:

When I first got my xbox I was like "bah achievements, I don't care about a stupid number to show off" but meanwhile I found for certain games that I really like I will go at some lengths to do one or another task that I wouldn't normally do to get an achievement. But there are still limits to what I will do. And I don't do it for the GS but rather for the game completion.

Been looking at selling some old games of mine and I didn't realise you could play Morrowind, Project Gotham Racing 2 and Shenmue 2 on the 360. Granted I'll maybe put them on now and again for nostalgia purposes but still, they're important games that have a lot of meaning to me, and I'm not gonna part with them. I would absolutely play more of PGR2, except the radio stations in it don't work anymore! Seriously disappointing :(

Sega has announced standalone downloadable game Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.

It's set for release in summer 2012.

It contains an overhaul of the game's mechanics, balance and animations. There are new game modes (one-on-one online battle and new single-player mode), new arenas (including those with fences and walls that are different for every round) and customisable character items.

Two new characters have been added to the roster: Taka-Arashi from Virtua Fighter 3 and an all-new character, Jean Kujo.

Meanwhile, Final Showdown implements simplified controls for new players.

This is fucking awesome, I thought it would never come. Would like a disc release or as DLC to VF5, but I'm cool with this. My favourite fighting game lives on. Fuck your Street Fighter :P

You know what's weird? I watched a video of the ICO/Shadow of the Colossus HD collection for the PS3 and I was thinking of the epic moments in SOTC. But when it came to ICO, I couldn't remember anything about it. I know of Yorda, how you hold her hand and navigate through a castle, solving puzzles and keeping shadow monsters away. But specific puzzles? Locations? The story (which to be fair was incredibly minimalistic as a design choice anyway)? Not a thing. Does anyone else know of a game which yoou know you've played, enjoyed but looking back you can't remember a thing about it? XD

I do. Green Beret on the NES (Rush'n Attack in the vid).
I remember it was really fun, cos I played it co-op with my cousin. And it felt awfully hard then.

But other than that, I don't think I've thought of it at all in the past 5-10 years.
And only remember it existed, recently from this clip. I have no idea what happens in the game or how it plays.

High street stores coming under some serious flak from the public lately. Most notably Gamestop, who gave out explicit instructions to it's employees to go remove an OnLive voucher from the PC version of Deus Ex : Human Revolution which would allow people who bought the game to play the original Deus Ex free, then sealing it up and selling it an 'New'. The reasoning is that Gamestop will have a similar service released next year and OnLive is it's competitor. But it's released next year! How does that hamper sales?! I think it's ridiculous, it's like the equivalent of going in and ripping pages out of an artbook that comes with a Collectors Edition, because those images don't fit the corporate image. Or removing the Online Pass that's needed to play multiplayer games these days and then sell those as seperate. The latter may sound crazy enough for it to come true.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the pond, GAME (the UK equivalent of Gamestop) are pressuring publishers about Steam sales. GAME basically want at least one month from release date where games cant be purchased by Steam users in the UK. This applies to all their games. If the publishers don't cooperate, then GAME will just flat out refuse to sell their game in any of their stores.

Both of these actions seem to signal just how tought it must be for them. With e-Commerce and supermarkets even selling games, usually for cheaper, the high street stores are losing their authority in the market and may even go under. Doing stuff like this doesn't help them.

Double quote cause that's how pissed off I am with this game right now :lol:

Picked up playing Tactics Ogre again after a month or so of not playing it and fuck me, I'm still struggling. I think this game really punishes you for wanting to experiment with other team mates/classes. I can't even build my class levels up because the enemies are just relentless. Or even worse, any time I'm dealing with monsters like dragons or those octopus things, I have characters that can only deal 1 dmg point to them when attacking, meaning I have to rely on my wizard, except he can't kill them fast enough with the amount of turns it takes to regen MP for the powerful spells, by which the dragon uses that fucking tail whip and most likely kills the wizard or my only healer...

Fuck this. I want to like this game, I really do, but it's like I put in 40 mins of work (cause that's what it feels like right about now) and lose all my progress because the enemies are just too strong for me to handle. Maybe I need better...tactics? lol

Deadly Premonition: Special Edition, Prequel, Sequel
It's time to return to Greenvale.  (http://uk.xbox360.ign.com/articles/119/1191482p1.html)


Hidetaka Suehiro, also known as Swery, has spoken about making a special edition of Deadly Premonition, with updated graphics.

Speaking to GameCentral, Swery also said that he had plans for a prequel and a sequel to the game, which had a mixed reception.

And as if that wasn't enough, Swery also hinted that he was working on a new game, which has already started to receive attention from Western publishers due to the cult successes of Deadly Premonition.

All projects have yet to be greenlit, but are you on board for more Deadly Premonition?

Some great news today coming out of Famitsu if you're a Persona fan. It's not Persona 5, but it's been teased out there, so don't even worry about it. But in more immediate news, Persona 4 is heading to the PS Vita, with some new updates and what have you along the same vein as when Persona 3 made the move to PSP including:

Quote
   
  • A new character named Mary
  • 1.5 times the voice of the PS2 version
  • Wireless support for calling on others to help you when you're about to die in a dungeon.
  • Other elements that fans of the original have heavily requested
  • New opening anime with new song from Shouji Meguro
  • New animation movies

Also, they're making a Persona 3 & Persona 4 2D fighting game....wait, what?

Quote
released first for arcades in Spring 2012, then for PS3 and Xbox 360 in Summer 2012.

Developed by the team behind Arc's BlazBlue fighting series, the Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena has a new story that takes place two months after the events of Persona 4. Characters from Persona 4 and Persona 3 will feature in the game.

And thanks to our very own pika for firstly telling me the news, as well as a link for scans which you can see here (http://shoryuken.com/2011/08/30/hd-fighting-game-based-on-persona-4-announced/)

It's an interesting point, I'm trying to think if there has ever been a case for me where I liked a game a lot but found the main character to be completely unlikeable, whether it's down to character design or something about his/her/it's personality? Or alternatively the game's put me off so much that it ruins the game. I didn't really care much for the Black Ops protaganist despite me really liking the game, and that's the closest I can get. I remember really disliking Neku from The World Ends With You at first, but he goes on an interesting development through the game which makes him endearing towards the end.

Fucking Cole Phelps. Why did you have to go and do that? It's not even worth it.

Seriously.

I completed LA Noire there now and was left feeling somewhat let down by the ending *SPOILERS*

Rather more specifically, I was let down in the buildup to the ending. I didn't mind having to play as Kelso at first, I thought it was an interesting twist that fits the purpose of the story, but I didn't like how the emphasis was on him the whole way through to the end, so much so that it pushes Phelps as a secondary character in his own game. The actual ending didn't bother me as much as it did for others. I didn't mind that Phelps died or that Roy Earle got away with it all. It's film noir, it was never going to be a happy ending. I just wish Phelp's death wasn't so lame though. I could see them aiming for something similar to RDR, but the contrast between the two in how they pulled it off is striking.

Still, I don't mean to knock it so hard, because it's so easy to get wrapped up in the story at that point that you just want to keep playing to see it all through to the end. I think it's a really impressive game with a great and absorbing story. The acting was really well done, for Cole in particular, and it just made the game better for it.

I am glad I was collecting the newspapers. The scenes were all so so, but Newspaper #12 actually turns out to be the best scene in the entire game. It's a wonder they even put such a cool scene hidden away like that. Spoilers for the below vid if you've not reached towards the end of the game.

But I've read that it can be played from start to finish offline. And it's not a MMO either, well, not in the truest meaning. More like get a few of your friends into your gameworld to tag along with you. Ton of info here:

Quote
-Announced for Wii and Wii U, as well as a possible additional feature of downloading your character onto the 3DS for Streetpass features, the game will be the same on both platforms, but with better graphics on the Wii U. Users from both platforms can play together. (It seems they originally wanted a 3DS version too, but that proved impossible.)

-The concept is based on around 3 ideas:

1. New Impressions
2. The Joy of Playing For a Long, Long Time
3. The Reliability of Being Able to Play with Ease and Relief

-Can be played from start to finish 100% solo and just because it's online doesn't mean there isn't a full script with NPCs and such, so you can take from start to finish to the ending by yourself.

-It takes place in a world called Alstotea split into five continents, each with a different race, Dwarf, Elf, Ogre, Wedi and Pukuripo.

-Invite your friends or register your character to be called into other people's games and level up, other players can watch your fights and cheer or boo and appear as transparent characters. You can also for help for characters to come and save you if you die or pre-write support messages for your friends.

-Battle system is turn-based (if you don't go online, you can hire characters from Luida's Tavern) with the usual commands of fight, special, spell, item and tactics.

-You can build, furnish and create your own house, and then invite your friends over. There is crafting, they showed a seamstress/tailor job with things skills like finish up and sew. It uses the job change system with the skill points of VIII just like IX, but will have new jobs and quests and events added over time.

-They showed two different movies, and some of the usual Dragon Quest elements were in there, shopping for weapons, opening treasure chests, checking dressers for herbs, NPCs like a cat warrior and some kid with glasses, a flying bird and a train, travelling through a DQVIII-like overworld and the turn-based battles.

-Release is in 2012 and beta starts soon, check the official page for more details on that. www.dqx.jp (http://www.dqx.jp)

Info and Video here (http://gonintendo.com/?mode=viewstory&id=160555&sid=878b6556ef96f5382fcc51dcbdfdc314)

The only gripe I can think of at this moment in time is that it just sounds like a bigger scale DQIX with as much emphasis on personality free party members to recruit. Definately need some real chracters like Yangus back in there, I don't especially care to create my own soulless party members, no matter how much I can make them look like Trunks or Son Goku.

Other than that, seems pretty much like a DQ game which sounds a bit of alright to me. Would be pretty cool for a bunch of us to team up and take on some high level quests together don't you think?

After playing the crap out of it over the past few days, I think I can safely say that Vanquish is the best shooter this generation. Seriously, show some love and play it.

Judging by the reviews, it would seem that Dead Island isn't as good as that trailer led you to believe. Shame, but it was always going to be compared and judged by that trailer which wasn't indicative of the type of game it is.

Bloodrayne Betrayal comes out this week, gonna check the demo of that for sure.

It will be dethroned. By Bioshock Infinate. ;) and I can't imagine it being better than Episode 2 I would like to play Vanquish at some point though. That will be my next sub 20 dollar deal purchase once I finish the 3 or 4 others I already have. lol


I wasn't interested in Dead Island at all, the trailer didn't resonate with me like it did others I guess. But the Giant Bomb quick look made me really interested. Didn't realize you could build up different character specs, loot stuff and target body parts like that. Plus I love any games with that kind of fuck around exploration and of course having co-op makes everything twice as fun.

The ESRB have let it slip that a Devil May Cry HD collection is a real thing after all (http://www.siliconera.com/2011/09/06/first-three-devil-may-cry-games-rated-by-esrb-for-xbox-360-and-playstation-3/). With the Tokyo Game Show due next week, it seems like it would be an ideal time for Capcom to make an official announcement. DMC 3 in HD and achievements? Freaking sweet. My nephew would love it as much as I would. :D

Tried the Bloodrayne Betrayal demo and was left very intrigued by it. The combat is tough. Took me a while to get used to it, I thought it was going to be more dial a combo stuff (e.g. X-X-Y) but instead it's all dependent upon the X button for melee, using a combination of your dash, button press timing and using the analog stick to leap into aerial combat for example. And it's hard too, the enemies don't let up and can do a fair amount of damage each time you get hit. Reviews say it's doesn't get any easier as you continue either. It honestly feels more like a DMC or a Ninja Gaiden then Castlevania, although the visual style and metal soundtrack of the latter is there. They did a neat touch with the background music where it's the blaring fast symphonic metal you'd expect from a Castlevania game, but as you're on low health, the music drains out until all that's left is a quiet piano playing at the same pace. Regain health, and the remaining instruments start to kick in. Like I said, very intriguing, I may just take the plunge and go for the full thing.

^I just got the Bloodrayne demo too and I think I'm gonna get the full game. I didn't like the combat at first, but now I I'm getting used to it and I like it. Especially now since i'm getting better with the dashing I'm not getting hurt so much. It felt weird to not have a crouch, but in my third playthrough of the demo I didn't really mind.
Title: Re: The Gaming Postwhoring Thread
Post by: Tuffty on September 09, 2011, 12:35:46 AM
^ I got the full version and I'm really liking it. I just tried to do a speed run of the 1st Stage, trying to get the highest score possible. Only got a C but dashing through the stage, taking out vampires and lamps as I go just looked incredible, and felt great when you get a good string going. I will say this, I can't wait to see Youtube videos of those who are really good at the game. It's gonna look awesome.

Saw the Rise of Nightmares quick look on GB and it looks like dumb fun. But certainly not worth full price, and the gimmick can wear off pretty fast I'd imagine. Like every Kinect game :lol:

Last night I started Chrono Trigger DS and just now spent an unreasonable amount of time farming money at the fair right at the beginning of the game, to buy me that 4000G expensive sword, that I will probably find lying around in a chest somewhere for free... anyway, now I have it, my characters are leveled up and pimped out with all available gear and I moved on, killing monsters with one hit!
I wonder how far you could go with this, I'm sure there are some freaks leveling even more and can completely overleveld sleepwalk through the rest of the game, ok it would take an immense amount of time to do this (each battle only gives you 10EXP)

Finished Alice Madness Returns on Nightmare (and I didn't cheat!), played the whole game a second time to search all the stuff I missed the first time around. Unfortunately I still couldn't find everything to get the last 3 Achievements I need for completing it 100%. Now I really want to make it my second complete game, but I don't want to play three whole worlds AGAIN to see if I find the three missing items (a swine snout, a memory and a Radula Room). But I want to complete the game... and I don't want to cheat... argh what should I do, stupid gamers pride!  :lol:

I also played a bit Portal 2 and felt right at home and installed Resonance of Fate to check if I can read the text on my tv, but it still has to wait, I don't want to play two RPG's at the same time. Tried the El Shaddai demo a second time, this time I somehow managed to play it to the end, but it only proved to me more: this is not my game!
Title: Re: The Gaming Postwhoring Thread
Post by: Tuffty on September 11, 2011, 04:44:34 PM
Just completed Bastion. Absolutely fantastic and based on a pivotal choice in the end level, it makes for one powerful story telling scene that's all done through gameplay and without the use of any cutscenes. When I saw it happen, it was really affecting to me.

Without wanting to give too much away at the end either, there are 2 endings to choose but what's good about it is that there is no good or bad ending, there's justification in both and that to me, makes it  much more interesting and a much harder choice to make than you would see in any other game.

I love this game, I think it's the best on XBLA and it'll even take some doing by other games to push it out as my GOTY choice.

Post by: thatonezombie on September 12, 2011, 12:24:22 AM

I know meowchi will love to hear that DOA5 is a real thing coming 2012

Quote
Dead or Alive 5 will be released in 2012 for box 360 and PlayStation 3, Team Ninja has announced at a Tokyo presentation.

In a shambolic demonstration before the Tokyo Games Show kicks off, Team Ninja unveiled the latest in its long-running series of one-on-one brawlers.

A demo starring Ryu Habayusa revealed a bigger emphasis on the environment, with debris flying through a destroyed cityscape that played a part in several slow-mo attacks.

Team Ninja also revealed a key image that's set to define the game, scheduled for release on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 next year. It showed a close-up of a female fighter drenched in sweat - pointing towards a possible return to the series' fixation with certain elements of the female form.

The developer promised an evolution of the genre, focusing on fighting as entertainment and delivering first class visuals.

Sweat = Evolution :lol:
