Errr...Dominion, Game of the year 2009 in Germany. Okay, its just a boardgame (a card game really) but its pretty awesome, check it out, if you like that kind of stuff, should be published by Rio Grande over in the US

I got to the last mission in San Andreas today.

I think I missed something because it was my understanding that there would be a casino heist mission. There was not.

Fathom Zero Jul 2nd, 2009 10:19 PM

There is in Saint's Row 2, a bank heist in GTA IV, and there's a game called Heist coming out, which I can only assume is based off of the movie Heat.

Because that game would be amazing.

I thought I remembered a casino heist in there. You do it with the blind asian Keanu Reeves guy, or at least for him I think. I think you had to do it before you can buy any property in the Vegas area. :confused:

Phoenix Gamma Jul 3rd, 2009 05:50 PM

Finally getting the hang of BlazBlue. Got two perfect matches and a 56 hit combo online today. Feels real good.

My PSN name is Phoenix_Gamma if anyone wants to play. My hours are pretty limited, though.

FistfulOAwesome Jul 3rd, 2009 11:38 PM

I just bought and beat SuperHero Mode in Mega Man 9. I was originally against it since I thought it was bullshit that Capcom would charge for a difficulty level. But I noticed I was playing Endless Attack more than the main game for Mega Man 9 and I attributed this to the relative lack of enemies to shoot in Mega Man 9 compared to older games in the series. Reading some good reviews of the mode on the GameFAQs forums I decided to swallow my pride and buy the mode. I'm glad I did.

SuperHero is fantastic. All that I thought was missing from the Normal mode is in SuperHero: More Enemies, More interesting use of the various devices (Warp Cubes, Elevating/Descending Platforms, Nega Man), More Bite. It's definitely the way I'll play the game from now on. If you need a reason to pick up Mega Man 9 again, I highly recommend SuperHero Mode (and if you haven't yet picked up Endless Attack you're missing out on one of the most genius modes ever put in a platform game. Get Both (and Skip Proto, he sucks).

Garou: Mark of the Wolves is quickly becoming a favorite of me and my brother's. The characters are all extremely well designed (i.e. they look like fighters (most of them, anyway) and are fun to play), the system works very well (sort-of like SF but with 4 buttons rather than 6), and the entire presentation is gorgeous. It almost feels like blasphemy to say that it might actually be better than SFIII (which currently holds my position for best fighter, but maybe not for much longer).
Great game.

MvC2 is still the best fighter though :(

FistfulOAwesome Jul 4th, 2009 04:48 AM

It's far too unbalanced for me. I think when you have that many characters, balance is hard to maintain. Plus it's focus on craziness over pure fighting. It's kinda like the Fighter version of playing Grand Theft Auto with the cheats: Fun for about twenty minutes.

Phoenix Gamma Jul 4th, 2009 07:21 AM

there are 50 characters. You have no need to pick just one.

FistfulOAwesome Jul 4th, 2009 12:29 PM

I guess some people get bored playing a single character for a 3-minute match (that's about average length for most matches). Personally, I get bored mashing buttons for Supers. I'm much more interested in outsmarting my opponents with my various moves (Normal doesn't mean worse. You'd be surprised how well Crouching Hard Punch works as an Anti-Air for Ryu) than seeing the carnage unfold.

Maybe the focus on Flash is one of the reasons I didn't like SFIV but many others did. They like seeing 10 second cutscene Supers of "them" kicking ass, similar to the love of MVC2 for it's focus on Supers. For me, that's not enough. I need a good, balanced game behind it (what do I care if I beat my brother if the only reason he lost is that he didn't mash fast enough?). I like to know I beat the other guy because I'm better than him, not because the fight just ended up that way (i.e. I was a faster masher).

Phoenix Gamma Jul 4th, 2009 02:55 PM

Street Fighter IV is one of the more balanced fighting games out there. If you're mashing buttons, you're doing it wrong. But hey, if beating your little brother by hammering buttons is boring, I can't blame you ;)

I won't defend MvC2 as balanced, but only "That Guy" gives a fuck. The rest of the world is having fun beating each other up and don't have time to memorize which of the 50+ characters are the best.

FistfulOAwesome Jul 4th, 2009 06:08 PM

I don't like SFIV for different reasons (Flash + SFII.5) but I do understand that it's balanced. It's what it's balanced around that annoys me. The top-tier characters are mostly guys who have easy combo into Ultra. If getting good at that game means I have to endure those 10 second cutscenes, leave me out (I actually sold it and went back to HD Remix, Alpha II, TS, and now MOTW).

As for MVC2, I have fun with that game. I just don't know how anyone could call it the "best" 2D Fighter, for all the reasons I stated. I get tired with the hammering buttons and eventually desire some actual serious play. Playing pick-up basketball is fun, but it only makes me desire a serious game all the more. It's more fun for me to have my skills tested.

Play DoA. It's all about reading your opponents. If you try to rush in mashing buttons or even doing actual combos any opponent worth their salt will quickly counter you and you will die really fast.

FistfulOAwesome Jul 4th, 2009 08:03 PM

@Dimnos: Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't like "3D" fighters. They always feel slow and clunky to me.

Tadao Jul 4th, 2009 08:08 PM

:(

Dimnos Jul 4th, 2009 09:45 PM

It's not as 3d as you might think. The 3d only comes into play when you kick someone and they get knocked around to one side or the other. Then the camera will spin around to line you two back up. It really does play more like a 2d fighter game. If reading your opponent and properly reacting to their actions is what you are looking for DoA really is worth checkng out. Do you have an xbox? You can DL a demo for free and check it out.

It really is. Especially when they are in the middle of a combo and you counter it and start into your own. :p

timrpgland Jul 6th, 2009 09:21 PM

Actually, it's the best fighter out there for all the reasons you mentioned. :(

There are a lot of tech style 2D fighters out there. MvC2 is just pure adrenaline and fun. It does still maintain a gap between skilled players and button mashers. Don't be static and the matches can be very balanced with the character volume.

Ant10708 Jul 6th, 2009 10:26 PM

Worms 2: Armageddon:rock

Guitar Woman Jul 6th, 2009 11:02 PM

Still 7th Saga :o

I was promised that this game would be ludicrously difficult, but so far it's not nearly as unforgiving as some of the older RPGs I've played (Final Fantasy 1).

The more runes I get the easier the game is. They're basically free buff items with absolutely no penalties, and I was pretty overpowered before I started getting these things; Esuna's weakest spell can one-shot most monsters that are at the same level as her, and the ones she doesn't kill she leaves on death's doorstep. This isn't mentioning her higher attack spells, and the fact that she can restore magic indefinitely and stay out grinding virtually forever. Or the fact that she's ludicrously fast and always attacks first. And and and I partied with Olvan, the resident brute-forcer, so whatever faults Esuna has are compensated for by teaming with her statistical opposite.

There are barely ever any boss fights, either. I've made enemies of two other apprentices, but only one is still alive and the other one is always an optional fight.

I started replaying Quake 4. I think it's actually pretty damn good, for an early release game, and being pretty much a re-skinned Doom 3. You can probably pick up a used copy for $10 or so; I'd do it.

Tadao Jul 7th, 2009 02:13 AM

Did they put single player back in for Quake 4?

MetalMilitia Jul 7th, 2009 07:01 AM

Yeah. Infact the multi player didn't seem to be very good.

Guitar Woman Jul 7th, 2009 08:58 PM

Got NeoTokyo last night. It's gooood.

http://www.neotokyohq.com/

Basically, it's a poor man's Call of Duty 4 with a cyberpunk theme ripped off from Ghost in the Shell, and a ton of neat features like shooting through walls, therm-optic camo and night/thermal/motion vision.

And a CTF objective with tits.





It's the best non-TF2 multiplayer on the Source engine and is incredibly polished despite the fact that it was only released, like, yesterday. I'd suggest getting it!

Do you guys have both map packs?

Tadao Jul 10th, 2009 03:19 PM

I believe we have everything you have, we just have to wait like 2 months after you guys get it.

Example : The lastest patch came with Kneedeep, Station, and Nightfire + a new zombie map.

Dimnos Jul 10th, 2009 03:35 PM

So currently you only have 2 zombie maps?

How are the custom maps? I'm leaning towards buying the pc version despite owning the xbox version because i figure if they keep releasing more map packs, I'd probaly end up paying close to a new game if i was dumb enough to buy the map packs. And on the pc do people exploit glitches on the zombie maps to no end like in the 360 version(making it no fun at all)

Its not worth the money because you already bought the fucking game and they are giving it away for free to pc users. SCAMS are never worth the money. fuck buying map packs and just buy your next game

I can't even play halo 3 ranked games because i dont have fucking mappacks. gayness

i just played through metal gear solid and i'm going through it again. much quicker this time (thanks to stealth camo and not watching any cutscenes). slowly (but surely?) going through infamous still. and i've been chipping away at assassin's creed every now and then, but i think i'm stuck:

i have to meet with all the bureau leader people in the acre, jerusalem, and damascus. i did all that, and it says (when i hit select, on the map screen) as my objective "0/6 investigations complete... something something something... climb a view point to find them" or something to that effect. problem is, i've done all of the view points in those cities/the kingdom. so... WHAT THE HELL

i just bought LOOM on steam too :D

You have to do the pick pocket and eavesdropping mini-missions now. After you do enough of those something else will pop up. But let me tell you... the funnest thing to do in that game is just start killing a lot of guards and get a bunch to follow you up on top of a really high building then start throwing them off. Or find a guard who is already standing on a roof and run up behind him and shove him off and listen for the crowed below to scream. Good times. :lol

Yeah I got it, but I stopped playing when I got Left4Dead. I'm looking on the Fallout 3 web page and don't see any free expansion packs.

Dimnos Jul 14th, 2009 02:53 PM

Does the PC version just not have expansions?

MetalMilitia Jul 14th, 2009 02:57 PM

It has all the same expansions and they cost the same as far as I know.

Tadao Jul 14th, 2009 03:42 PM

I saw the expansions available for pc on Amazon. I'm sure they are purchasable at a local software pimp.

Tadao Jul 14th, 2009 03:44 PM

The only real time PC has an advantage like that is when the engine is open to the public and the fan base is strong. Like the days of Doom and Warcraft 2. Oh and I bet I can sight quicker with a mouse if we ever get to play 360 V pc.

bigtimecow Jul 14th, 2009 11:10 PM

what the fuck swans

bigtimecow Jul 15th, 2009 07:57 PM

Replaying Twilight Princess for fun. The game gets a lot of crap, but I like it. Not as much as Link to the Past or Majora's Mask, but I still like it.

Dimnos Jul 16th, 2009 12:01 PM

Oh.. I liked Wind waker even more than I liked Twilight Princess. :(

For me its like

Link to the Past = Wind Waker > Twilight Princess = Majoras Mask > Legend of Zelda = Ocarina of Time > all the other ones.

I might even say Legend was better than Ocarina just because its the original and retro.

Phoenix Gamma Jul 16th, 2009 01:11 PM

Link to the Past is my absolute favorite. Nothing wrong with that game.

Majora's Mask is second; the world was dense and the side stories fleshed everything out. More Zeldas need to be that experimental (it was dark, twisted, and the game structure was really different, even today).

Wind Waker's nice and all, but sailing sucks balls, and the Triforce Quest is the worst fetch quest in the history of videogames (find 8 maps, payover 3000 rupees, sail for a few hours to find the 8 pieces. Okay you can play the rest of the game now).

Legend has aged horribly. You need a guide to beat that game; there's no way to figure that shit out yourself. "Grumble Grumble"?! How the hell am I supposed to know that means to go find a shop on the other side of the world and buy meat?

The handheld games don't get enough love, though. Awakening was awesome, and the Oracle games were really, really cool. Minish Cap and Phantom Hourglass were a little disappointing, though.

stevetothepast Jul 16th, 2009 01:37 PM

Link to the Past is the best in the series in my opinion.

Link to the Past is the pentacle of Zelda games. The only way it could get better than that is to possibly do a precise 3D remake with Twilight Princes graphics.

I LOVED sailing in Windwaker! That you had to sail around to all these different islands was a fresh change for the series I thought. The fact that I love sailing in real life probably contributed to my thoughts on that though. Without a doubt though Windwaker had the BEST ending ever!


bigtimecow Jul 16th, 2009 03:10 PM

i have to second/third/fourth? about LTTP. actually, i'd probably say that it's my favorite snes game ever, as well as the best zelda game. but, as cool as a 3D remake would look, it would actually detract from gameplay. i feel like seeing the top-down view of an entire (or most of) a room contributed to the puzzles. unless they just amped up the graphics but kept the camera angle

nah that would still suck

after having finished LOOM and now playing through monkey island for the one billionth time (btw, everyone fucking buy it. it's perfecccccccccccccccct) i might try out the dig. it got a lot of crappy reviews, at least compared to lucasfilms other adventure games. however, as long as it's better/longer than LOOM then i'll pay the 5 bucks for it

edit with actually editing: nevermind i'm just fucking buying it

Guitar Woman Jul 16th, 2009 03:15 PM

Windwaker is the peak of the Zelda series and somewhere deep down I always knew that :<

I didn't want to accept it and I let Nintendo cocktease me with Twilight Princess for three years, but when I played it finally it was so awful that it felt like they'd just given up on the franchise entirely.

I don't blame them, though, I certainly have.

As for LTTP I played it to completion once then never touched it again. It was ok, Link's Awakening was better.

Guitar Woman Jul 16th, 2009 03:21 PM

God, Link's Awakening is such a fucking good game.

I should play it now, even!

ADDENDENDEUNDUDNEUM: Upon reflection, my favorite part of Link to the Past is making the Dark World trees give Link a blowjob.

Nothing happened when you sailed. You outran all the enemies, and even if you fought them, it was pretty frustrating. I set the controller down and played LttP while I waited to play Wind Waker again. If the ocean was a little smaller, I wouldn't have minded so much. Stabbing Ganondorf in the head was neat, but the ending was such a downer. Should have made all of Hyrule explorable after you got the Triforce. Or drained the ocean after you rang the bell at the top of the tower. Either way, fuck the fetch quest.

Plus, everyone's faces were really creepy. What I'm really waiting for is a cel-shaded Zelda that looks like this:

I'm finding myself liking Midna more than last time (not that I hated her; I liked her then, too), and I'm noticing all of the little details they added in the dungeons and towns. One of my favorites is the old, opened chest in thew Sacred Grove, which was opened by you when you warp back in to the Temple of Time. Clever little details like that is always neat to find. Wind Waker had a lot of that hidden in the castle and on the pirate ship that you just wouldn't find unless you took a good look around.

YE LUBBERS DON'T UNDERSTAND

WHEN IT'S JUST YE

AND THE SEA

Most of the time when I was going somewhere in WindWaker I'd get sidetracked by an island or a sea tower or a submarine, and I'd go and wreck their shit Errol Flynn style and then jump back into my boat and sail off loaded down with booty. It's the only good pirate game to date, and that's a big part of why I love it.

That I've played, I mean

DO YOU EVEN SACK OUTPOSTS IN MONKEY ISLAND? NO? FUCK OFF

I totally see where GW is coming from with that. Monkey Island is a great pirate themed adventure game but you dont actually get to do much pirating if any at all. You dont get to board someones ship and wreck the place up and make off with their loot. Guybrush is too obsessed with the tang.
