  1. Hilarity! http://deadspin.com/5592930/pug-singing-batman-pug-singing-batman
  2. So...does anyone playing Red Dead want to posse up at some point? PS3 gamertag: iamwithoutshoes
  3. Currently reading Eugene B. Sledge´s Pacific War account "With The Old Breed". It´s very hard to put down, absolutely gripping. Written in a very honest and direct way, it clearly comes across that the experiences that Sledge recounts are real lived ones even though the horrors described are beyond belief. With the excellent HBO series "The Pacific" recently on TV, which features Sledge´s story heavily, the book is essential reading. It´s quite clear why it is considered a Pacific War classic.
  4. So Iron Maiden have finally made their new album official, it is called "The Final Frontier" and will be released this summer. Excellent.
  5. Aww man, I wish I had a computer that could run that! Love the Silent Hunter series and really miss playing the games...
  6. Played the Batman demo today. Really enjoyed it, only thing that annoyed me was the over the shoulder camera angle which leaves Batman stuck in the left corner whatever you do. And to be fair, I can see the gameplay becoming a bit repetitive if we are getting "take down" puzzles constantly. Basically swing from gargoyle to gargoyle until you can clear a room and move on to the next. Hope I´m wrong. But it looked very good and the atmosphere was great. Nice and intuitive fighting as well.
  7. Hehe good take on trekkie fanboyism there... I went to see it last night and I enjoyed it. I´m not a Trek fan and have found it way to boring to follow whenever I´ve tried to watch any of it. So that is what I was going in with to watch it. But it was well paced, funny (some decent LOL moments), looks fantastic, plenty of action set pieces and tons of familiar faces.
  8. So Splinter Cell with a cape then? Alright, I´m down with that.
  9. Keeps me away from tougher enemies? If I follow the story I still have to cross the map to get to the point I need to be and the wasteland is packed with stuff that I have to run away from. I think the VATS system is stupid. Yeah, I can aim at whatever I want but it doesn't deal damage anyway. Oh and while the game slows down to show the "cool" animation of you shooting at stuff, it lets the thing you're fighting come right up and knaw on your face while you wait to get control again. Very lame.
  10. I've tried to play this game and like it but...it's no good. When you say try to avoid fights with tough enemies, I have to try to avoid fights completely. Everything I come across can take tons and tons of damage, it's ridiculous. Half the time I play the game is spent running away or trying to get from one point on the map to another while completely avoiding anything that may need shooting. Exploring is a complete waste of time. Shame, but this game turned out to be a waste of time. It's fine to make a game hard, but you should be able to at least make a dent in the enemy when fighting it. You don't get that chance here and when they limit the ammo and other stuff...I don't have the patience to keep at it.
  11. I haven't touched anything but the "be a pro" mode so far. So much fun! I'd like to know more about hockey tactics and plays though, I could improve my game a lot if I knew more about it. The commentary team (which is fantastic btw) talks about the slot, the point...I have no idea what they are on about. I'll see about getting a franchise mode going in a bit.
  12. Got NHL 09 as a pre xmas present for myself and I'm having so much fun with it. The various gamer sites keep mentioning this as the best sports game this year and I totally understand why. The be a pro mode is just so well done and so much fun, you keep wanting to play one more game. I'm not even a hockey fan and I don't know much about the sport but even without any sort of knowledge about it you get so sucked in. It looks great, plays great and is presented really well. Check it out!
  13. I'm finding Fallout extremely tedious. Only played a few hours and maybe I'm doing something wrong but its impossible to kill things. The guns are either weak and do no damage or its impossible to hit. All the while whatever thing you are fighting always hits, always does major damage and always attack in numbers. Means you waste tons of ammo and health pack for no good. Might trade this in soon.
  14. It's alright. Bit tedious to be fair, there's waaaaay to much traveling between missions, during missions, after missions...It can get a bit boring. Also, the map is so vast and there's no hud to speak of, so some dude can be standing miles away hidden in the bush shooting at you and you will have NO idea where it is coming from. It's annoying. Haven't played it online yet though.
  15. Yes, I did finish the game and I loved it. I do understand where you are coming from, was just having a laugh with the "I want more of the same, but different!" statement The missions did get a bit repetitive, I agree. You didn't HAVE to get all the clues to get the kill though, has to be said. I personally found the traveling between the cities (before you could port there) to be more of a chore. I enjoyed the game play, the combat was fun, the mysterious storyline and the spiritual undertones. And I did collect all the clues in every city before every kill. And I really didn't mind the repetitiveness of it at all.
