I dunno. I saw some of the gameplay and it appealed to me, just because I love Prince Of Persia style games.

I liked the first Condemned a lot more than the second one. Probably because the cop from Heroes played the main character.

The thing is that if I upgrade to 7, I'll have a tougher time getting older games, like the ones from GoG, to work. On the other hand, I get to play K&L2 and Just Cause 2. I've already played the shit out of JC2 on 360, and I can't say I'm willing to shell out the time and money to upgrade just so I can play a couple games I'm already over.


And I'm not excited about Enslaved. People were fawning over how incredible it is that they're doing a futuristic take on an old story, but no one seems to remember the last time they did this very thing. It was called Too Human, and it was terrible.

DougClayton4231 Sep 9th, 2010 06:30 PM

lol, Too Human was a fucking travesty. If you can, dual boot XP and 7 so you get the best of both worlds. I didn't know that anyone else here used GoG, they don't garner all that much news.

for a while i was playing old games by using VMWARE on my windows 7 machine :O unfortunately it doesn't have good video drivers :(

OxBlood Sep 10th, 2010 03:46 AM

Too human was pretty nasty indeed. Interestingly there´s a fucking cult-following in the german forum I´m in, don´t know what their deal is, but these guys sank hundreds of hours into that game.
And Too Human kinda reminded me of Hellgate London and to this day that is the only game that I literally snapped in half and threw in the trash.

Anyway I´d really like to buy birth by sleep...but there´s no fucking money left cause the state acts like a fucking...errr well, state and my payments are held up...I still got till january before I´m officially totally fucked but until then they better fucking pay me my normal...whatever "unemployment-payment" is called in the US. What the hell do I live in a social state for anyway...

DougClayton4231 Sep 10th, 2010 08:23 AM

I remember seeing Hellgate: London and thinking "WOW, this game will be awesome when it comes out." Two weeks after it came out, the developer pretty much dropped support and that game was left a complete and utter turd. The only game more disappointing was Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust. I cried after I bought that one lol.

The unemployment is getting sketchy in America too. Multiple people I know haven't been getting their payments.

OxBlood Sep 10th, 2010 03:27 PM

Yeah, I too still remeber how excited I was for Hellgate...I thought "man, this might be the next Diablo for a while, it might really rock if they play their cards right"...but we all know what happened...goddamn mess it was, it ran like shit on most machines, it crashed on Vista...heh, a friend of mine never de-installed it up to this day because he fears the game might take the PC with it when it goes :D

Concerning jobs...all I want is the job that was promised to me but the guys had to postpone their...their...aw fucking business-english...their IPO, that´s it. Once that´s settled, I got a nice job that pays well. Until then it´s daily prayers towards the not-so-empty void beyond the stars ;)

Oh and I played the Phantasy Star Portable 2 Demo this afternoon and hell, am I gonna buy that thing later next week. Thank the gods for the american PSN...

I've been playing Duke Nukem 3D out of an odd sense of nostalgia and a pretty badass take on Super Mario called Super Mario Bros Crossover.

Shadowdancer21b Sep 10th, 2010 09:08 PM

Super Mario Crossover rules. That was a well-crafted game right there.

MarioRPG Sep 11th, 2010 08:48 PM

I've started playing Metroid Other M. I've only been about 20 minutes in so I can't really comment.
Although to explain their way out of using weapons (ie power ups) that you start with it's literally "Samus decides not to use ____ until _____ says its ok"

Fathom Zero Sep 11th, 2010 09:28 PM

Playing Dj Hero fucking awesome. Didn't know the red-headed stepchild of the music game genre was so fun.

i was wondering about that. I understand that she dosen't use destructive powers but why does she decides not to use her armor defensive capabilities?

Phoenix Gamma Sep 11th, 2010 10:55 PM

Because the Federation showed up first and Adam (the CO from Fusion and the comics) tells her she's only allowed on the premises if she cooperates since she wasn't officially assigned to it and just kinda showed up on her own.

And because Adam's a dick who makes you run through three lava rooms before saying "sure go ahead and turn on the heat protection suit now." Probably gets off on being a controlling bastard.

OxBlood Sep 12th, 2010 08:26 AM

Since when does Samus care about what the federation says? Isn´t she a fucking freelance bounty hunter? I´ve already heard Spoony´s ramblings about Other M and it sounded really REALLY horrible what they´ve done with Samus...
Ah well, couldn´t play it anyway. At least I was able to reorder Reach and Dead Rising 2...hopefully Reach will be here on wednesday, I´d really like to play that thing...and thankfully not as that stupid green Spartan...

favourite track?

Fathom Zero Sep 12th, 2010 01:10 PM

I love Dizzee Rascal and Justice, so Fix Up, Look Sharp vs. Genesis is a very fun one.

Funny thing is, I've heard some artists and DJs mash those two up way before the game. good fun, though. They do a good job with the music and make you feel really badass when you do stuff right. The controller's kinda fucked, though.

DougClayton4231 Sep 12th, 2010 02:26 PM

Ox, you can make your spartan green lol.

I know :P But mine wonīt be green...I guess, heīll be white...doesnīt matter in multiplayer anyway :lol Iīm just happy that it isnīt the Master Chief, that guy has about as much character as a candle made of tapir-puke.

Finished Yakuza 3. One of the best games I played this year, no doubt. I love how the game handles New Game+... Now I gotta keep myself busy till Tuesday when PS Portable 2 comes out (hopefully) and on wednesday itīs time for Reach...well...for 8 hours at least. Short SP-Modes ftl...

darkvare Sep 12th, 2010 06:09 PM

i just got a call from blockbuster informing me of the midnight sale of reach i'm gonna be a very very bright look at me kind of spartan online lol

Shadowdancer21b Sep 12th, 2010 07:39 PM

Working on my second playthru of Gladius. I really like this game. I'm also doing some novelty stuff on Def Jam: Fight for New York. For example, I made a fairly decent Captain S.

dextire Sep 12th, 2010 07:51 PM

Trying (and failing) to beat Decap Attack. Great music in this game. :)

It's their jurisdiction, and the Federation signs her checks. They've always employed her.

Hm, maybe she should just refrain from working with them while they sit on her shoulder all the time. It just sounds and feels wrong to me. Samus getīs things done her way not someone elses, thatīs how itīs always been. Sure, sheīs clumsy as shit and loses all her kickass gear all the time but apart from that she was pretty good on her own.

That and it doesnīt make one lick of sense. If she has powerful weapons, let her use them and the mission will be over faster with less casualties. Itīs a big difference if she just doesnīt have the plasmabeam or someone tells her itīs not cool to use it right now.

You know what? Fuck the federation, Iīm going to sign a contract with those stupid space pirates! Maybe bribe Motherbrain with cake or something :D

Phoenix Gamma Sep 13th, 2010 02:12 PM

The Federation hired her for just about every Metroid game though :V

Hell! I bet that's how she always loses her gear all these years! They probably confiscate it! It's just that this time they didn't because she was never officially hired.

Fight for New York is awesome. So much better than the new one.
