      Foxtrot 813 is Point Man:

      uk.xboxlive.ign.com/articles/100/1008718p1.html

      The name of the DLC pack, the inclusion of Fettel, the fact that he has slow mo!!!!...

      It HAS to be him.

      I'm more excited for this DLC pack than I ever have been September just got a little more awesome.

      F.E.A.R. 2's Reborn demo drops August 27th and the full version launches September 3rd.

      If you're a fan of the series or any horror whatsoever, you need to finish the game ASAP and get ready for the expac.

    • Decisions...

      10 years ago

      PhatPhil

      Okay, there are a couple things I need to think about. Basically, it boils down to the following:

      Choice A- Start classes this fall, meet the people there, get back on track with my college education and working on a full fledged career sooner

      OR

      Choice B- Focus on other things until next fall, getting a secure position at a job somewhere, keep my gaming schedule open, get a driver's license (without worry about shit like school and such), potentially get my weight lowered (That's a maybe) and just other stuff...

      I think... It's just gonna be choice B. On top of all that stuff I need to do, there are just TOO many games coming out this fall and next spring to get preoccupied with freaking school. Fall consists of Muramasa, ModWar2, L4D2, Dragon Age: Origins, Assassin's Creed , Sakura Wars V, WET and many more...

      And then of course, next spring for me is two big name titles, Final Fantasy XIII and Splinter Cell Conviction. Not to mention other randoms like Bayonetta, Red Dead Redemption, World Destruction, Bioshock 2...

      The list goes on. The Fall 09 and Winter 09/10 gaming forecast is just wayyyyy too huge.

      Plus... It means no binding obligation to keep me from going to Otakon 2010. >.>

      So, since the decision is up to me according to my mother, I've pretty much decided.

    • Price Drop = Finally Some Rock Band

      10 years ago

      PhatPhil

      Well, it's been a long time coming but I am gonna be purchasing a band kit for my Xbox 360.

      Now, it will go as such under these regulations:

      Solution A- GH:WT for 99.99, gives me a drum set, guitar and mic
      OR
      Solution B- Rock Band 1 Kit (But only if it's cheaper or I can get two guitars instead)

      Either way, sometime over the weekend I'm gonna be picking a guitar for my Ecks Bawks so if someone wants to play a music game, I will be up for it once I get them from gamefly.

    • FFXIV Details Revealed

      10 years ago

      PhatPhil

      Key Notes:
      -No Leveling to Speak of (THANK YOU GOD)
      -Completely Revamped but Familiar FFXI Job System
      -Same Races and New Ones but with Different Names
      -Deeper Story
      -More focus on weapons being important to players
      -New World/Land of Eorzea

      Missing Information:
      -How the economy will function now
      -Just how the new gameplay works, how leveling and grinding will be avoided
      -Exactly which races will return (Please don't tell me my beloved Tarutaru brethren are dead D; )
      -What jobs will be available from the get go
      -Plot Info
      -New/Carried over Crafting and Hobbies
      -WILL IT COME TO THE 360?!

      And other various, but not quite as important things. Still, good to see some deets revealed. Very VERY happy to see they appear to have learned their lesson with the leveling system while at the same time looking to potentially revolutionize the gameplay within an MMORPG.

      Seriously though, I want to see a 360 announcement. >.<

    • Umineko TV Chapter 1

      10 years ago

      PhatPhil

      All I can say is WOW...

      Seriously, with the restraints for time per episode and needing to keep the viewer's interest held, they did a DAMN good job.

      Plenty of information is given and side from some change ups near the end I will keep from talking about, I am very, VERY satisfied with how chapter 1 was done.

      I do have to say however, it is most definitely not as terrifying as the sound novel was. I lost sleep over that. This however, is a different story.

      And I 'kinda' get the message that is attempting to be conveyed through Battler and honestly, I never got that through the novel. Granted, with a certain someone's influence now, proving he's right will be more possible. Without them however, that's a different story.

      Ryukishi-san... I think is either a GENIUS storyteller.. Or completely fucking insane. Honestly, I think I've never read/watch such a perplexing and intellectually challenging series since... Well, Higurashi.

      So, those new to 07th Expansion's work or fans of it, you need to check out Umineko if you have a love for mystery and horror.

      Two awesome purchases were made today:
      -A 3 piece sectional microfiber chocolate colored couch with a Chaize and corner piece
      AND
      -A 42'' LG 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV

      Our step towards nicer living is slowly advancing. The couch will be delivered wednesday, but we got to take the TV home today. <3

      Tales of Vesperia NEVER looked so pretty and smooth until now.

      Oh and how much did the TV cost? Only 300 bucks. Part of a deal with purchasing a couch from a select manufacturer was getting an 800 entertainment bonus that was pretty much a discount towards any electronic related purchases at the store we were at.

      And the couch is fantastic. I thought I'd hate microfibers but you 'do' get used to the fabric of it after a while.

      This week is going to be VERY exciting.

      So, did anyone else find this to be the one of the more awesome functions coming to the new NXE update?

      I wanted to create a thread to find other users who would be making use of this function either once the preview/beta goes out tomorrow and of course, once the feature goes live to the public on the 11th, to potentially form up a group for viewing parties once they are back up of course.

      To note however, I think it should be safe to say that I comment during movies and being we're doing this as a group, it makes it more... fun. And do anticipate the occasional MST3K styled commentary, making cracks after corny or unintentionally funny lines.

      Back on topic, I've seen the preview videos of it on Joystiq and aside from the lack of FULL library browsing, the updates are VERY welcomed. Being able to now BROWSE for new movies to add to my queue FROM my xbox, is a lot more convenient than going to the computer EVERY SINGLE TIME I WANT TO ADD SOMETHING.

      And the little emote system also looks to be fun to fiddle with.

      There is a big giant 2 in the back. Which I'm guessing 100% it is MvC2. Why do they make the domain tu4ar? If you have played MvC2 when you are in the character select, the music has the singer sing "I wanna take you for a ride" over and over. If you think about it, tu4ar basically means "Take U 4 A Ride".

      Everyone knows MvC2 is coming out on live and PSN. I'm just wondering if this countdown is for it's official announcement or for it's release.

    • Shinigami28

      10 years ago

      I'll probably kick your ass a lot lol but I could help you if you don't mind losing. I'm actually really bad at the game now since I barely play it. Been playing SF3 on my PC using a dreamcast emulator and I find it way funner.

      I need to play some Guilty Gear to get ready for Blazblue once it's out.

      If by Active Time Battle you mean like FFVII-IX then yeah somewhat. I don't really remember how the old one works but in XIII, as I have explained, you queue up the moves you want to perform and have to wait until your meter fills up before you can execute it. In the demo you can queue up to 3 different moves (I'm sure later on in the full game you can upgrade the number), the meter is split into 3 bars, if you queue up 1 you only have to wait until the first bar is filled up, then you can execute it and so on.

      The enemy and the character you control and you're allies actually move around the battlefield by themselves instead of being lined up like all the other FF games. So there are some times if you are lucky, an enemy attack can miss you or you can miss them. Well that's usually due to a target blocking the path or something. Animation is very fluid, there is one combo where you will knock the target up in the air and Lightning will jump up and do two slashes.

      lol don't be arrogant, just because FF didn't correct you doesn't mean you are using the correct word. Premier is also a word but premier means "the head of the cabinet in France or Italy or certain other countries; first minister; prime minister." - Dictionary.com

      lol I suppose, when I was taking pictures with the SLR the screen kept telling me the subject is too dark. I'm like shut up you stupid camera just take the picture.

      Lighting in my room consist of a desk lamp aimed upwards lol, and sometimes a light coming out of the glass display case. Those are the only two lights I will ever leave on. I have never ever turn my room light on. It's actually not dark if you actually were to be in my room. Pictures did look a bit dark on my PC monitor, looked fine on my Macbook though.

      Hmm I just called and the guy said they got copies!!! I'll pick it up today and we can play for all night until 1 or 2am PST. Gotta get up early for work on Saturday and Sunday so I'm not sure about the all nighter on Saturday. However, I can still play until 1-2am.

    • Shinigami28

      10 years ago

      I'll stop by the mall today and see if they got copies. Knowing EB Games though they probably make up some bullshit and say "sold out, come back tomorrow" or some shit. They never sold out, they always have a shit load of games in the back. It's just that they can't sell more than they are suppose to.

    • Shinigami28

      Speaking of achievements. Here is RE5's: www.xbox360achievements.org/game/resident-evil-5/achievements/ Easy stuff, basically just gotta beat the game lol and you can probably get all of em in one go except for the weapon ones. Might have to play it a few times.

    • Shinigami28

      I suppose they both do play the same but one character is on the Left part of the screen while the hud is on the right and the other is on the right side while the hud is on the left. Maybe some people prefer one or the other. As well as each character has to do different things when they split up such as Sheva has to go down the building and break the lock so Chris can get out and Chris has to help the Sheva player by sniping.

      I dunno just a thought. I went to EB Games today and traded in all my games, came out to a total of $141 lol. Wanted to pre-order RE5 and the guy told me they are sold out of pre-order, he told me to try again tomorrow which I'll probably do just before work. So if I do get a pre-order, I'll pick it up on Saturday and we can play when I get back from work if you're still up for it. If not then Sunday or Monday is the best bet that I will be getting a copy.

    • Shinigami28

      10 years ago

      I'm thinking about picking it up after work on Saturday. I don't have any money but I'm trading in a bunch of games that is on the Most Wanted list at EB Games. I've calculated and it should come to an approximate sum of $148. I do hope they have copies left after work. If not then maybe Sunday or Monday I'll get it.

      No I bought it for Xbox 360 due to the fact the online is better compared to PS3 in terms of meeting people and matchmaking sometimes. Plus everyone has a mic most of the time so its good to talk to people.

      Using the Xbox Live party doesn't help this in any way. Since 1 lobby can only hold 2 people for 1 on 1, if we have a party of 3 or 4, people are going to have to sit out regardless. The other 2 can play their own game and we can all talk but what I want is 1 lobby that can hold everyone and just keep changing the challengers to fight against the winner. This was great on DOA 4 because even if the other people have to sit and wait, everyone still had fun talking with each other and watching the other 2 play their match. At least that's what it was like when I first got my 360 and played DOA 4 with a bunch of friends over Live.

      I dunno I just hope they update the game to have another lobby option.

      I'll probably get FEAR 2 through steam, but probably not. Non valve games tend to be extremely bugged up when bought through steam. Well so far it has just really been Crysis Warhead.

      If I do get FEAR 2 through steam, first thing I'll play is story. Usually shooter games, I try to beat the story before playing online unless bunch of friends got it then I'll go online whenever they are going to play.

      And the reason I got Viva Pinata is cuz my friend she kept telling me how fun it is stuff lol. It's 5 dollars and I am actually enjoying it. One thing annoying is I hate when pinatas visit my garden. They always gotta eat other pinata, or eat my plants then I gotta replant those seeds pisses me off.

      I see what they meant by one week exclusive. I thought it was like they will take it off after the week is over. I believe they might have done that for one game before not too sure.

      I know for X Edge on the PS3, they had the demo on Japan PSN store but it was taken off like a few days after.
