  1. I don't care if it's via Steam or whatever, I'm gonna get it. Steam works for me, so I don't mind buying stuff through it. I'm excited, I'm interested to see where they are gonna go with the story.

    God of War

    Yeah, it seems rather short. I'm probably going to beat it this week after getting it on Friday. Still, I think it was definitely worth a buy.
  3. I picked it up on Friday, and have played 6 or so hours so far. It's pretty fun, but it's a straight-up action game. It has some puzzles that at times sort of remind you of Prince of Persia, but none of them are brainbusters. The coolest part of the game is having all the power that you do. You can seriously pull off some wicked attacks and combos, and it never gets old when you completely decimate a crowd. The controls are smooth and responsive, and it's easy to pull off the combos and stuff. It's extremely bloody and gory, and definitely earns the Mature rating, but for some reason even though it is over the top it all fits. The world they created is dark, deadly, and gory, so it doesn't feel bad or weird or anything to see so much blood. The Greek setting is cool, and the art is absolutely amazing. It's almost cinematic, and almost every area is just plain awesome, visually. Sometimes I can't believe it's a PS2 doing all of this. There are some stutters, but for the most part it's smooth. I'm not a big console gamer, but this one has me. It's a great play for when I come home from a long day and need to play something that doesn't require me to use my brain. Anyone else played it? What do you think?
  4. Yeah, at a certain point you can gather enough 'intelligence' in the Ace so that you can grab him, but you won't have had to get every single card in the suit. I always go back to finish them all off, though, since it would bug me if I didn't. ^_^
  5. I have it. It's a really fun game for what it is, an unapologetic action game. It has a lot of freedom to run around, but it does get kind of repetitive at points. I mean, the whole point of the game is to blow stuff up and capture people. Once you've played through half of the game you've really seen most of what it has to offer, other than more complicated missions and the like. I haven't beaten it yet, but my roommate is on the final mission. He has quit playing the game in frustration. He says the mission is over an hour long, and it has no save points, and parts of it are incredibly hard. And it is the kind of hard where the developers just throw an insane number of enemies at you and you seriously almost have to rely on blind luck to get through. I haven't played it since he told me that, since I really don't want to deal with the frustration. I played it nonstop for almost 2 weeks, though. It is fun to really roleplay the mercenary part, running around, playing different sides against each other and blowing the **** out of anything and everything. The controls are mostly pretty good once you get used to them. The graphics are mostly pretty good. I played it for Xbox, and load times were great. Once the game loaded you didn't really experience load times for the most part. You could drive from one end of the map to the other, and the maps are pretty big. It is definitely like GTA in the Demilitarized Zone, that is a great way to describe it. It was worth a purchase to me. I downloaded it to try it out, and since I played it so much I had no problem going out and picking up a copy. Definitely worth my money for the amount of time I have put into it, even though it has its flaws.
  6. Fair enough, can't argue with that. Like I said, the patches don't fix problems for everyone. Just from what I have heard it fixes a lot of problems for a lot of people. And yes, I've heard about it not running on ATI cards on release. The release was downright terrible, I'm not going to argue that. I'm hoping the english release will be smoother, but...who knows? <_< Well, of course I'm not going to argue with your frame of mind upon playing the game, I was just going off what I saw in the mini-review. I guess I just expect a lot of RPG's to start off slow and/or not capture me right off the bat. I just started playing KOTOR2 and I am really forcing myself to get involved, for some reason I can't get sucked so far. I'm sure it will pick up, but right now it seems boring. Same went for NWN and KOTOR1. Even Torment didn't have me from the get-go. Fallout had me from the beginning, but...well, it's Fallout. :D
  7. So just to be sure, you have the latest patch, right? That solves a lot(although definitely not all) of the problems. I have no idea if the German versions come with the 1.6 version of the game, but I have been told 1.6 solves a lot of issues. And 1.7 is coming out soon, so that might be worth a look, too. I'll be honest, I read the entire mini-review and it really sounded like you went into it already disliking it. *shrugs* I've talked to a few German players that have told me that once the technical issues were ironed out it was a pretty decent game for the most part. From what I hear it's not outstanding but I've been told it's definitely not the suck-fest you describe. To each their own, I suppose. I'm not going to argue since I haven't played it. :D
  8. The game itself looks interesting and fun, but the way it was created is what has me excited. Such a cool idea.
  9. I tried to tell one of my coworkers about this "Monkey vs Man" discussion at work today. It didn't go so well. I'm pretty sure he thinks I'm insane. EDIT: Oh, and my money is on the monkey. Sorry, Kumquatq3, I'm just a monkey kind of guy.
  10. I don't know anything about Jade Empire other than Bio is making it, but right now it is higher on my list than Fable for PC is. Yeah, that's how much I disliked what I saw from Fable.
  11. I watched my younger brother play it for a while...no, thanks. I have better ways to spend my time.
  12. Just to reiterate what I posted in the TSL forum on the subject:
  13. Agreed! Man, would that ever be fun to read! :D On topic, though: I don't post much here, but I definitely lurk here everyday. Personally, I think forums like this are a really really good thing. In my humble opinion leaving the boards open and either A) Electing more moderators or B) Allowing current moderators to be more strict(as Feargus said) would work best. I don't know if the decision to close the boards has already been made or what, but I think that with more active moderation the problems could be ironed out.

    I've been using Firefox for...well, forever. Back when it was still called Firebird. Wouldn't switch away from it for anything.
