Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

Started playing Skyrim, really too similar to the Fallout games. I know its the same dev, but ♥♥♥♥ing hell. I don't know which series started that feel first, but Bethesda really needs to vary their games a bit.

@ Pietro
I think TES started out first.

Anyways, anyone played the Mass Effect 3 demo? It's really, really good! Ashley is now hotter than Miranda. I have to play ME2 now and get ME3 once it comes out. Ugh.. So many games, so little time to play.

Oh.. And I'm on PC. I checked the specs from a website and it's not demanding. Good job, BioWare.

The WiiU is essential a blatant rip off of the iPad.

All of the WiiU's "innovations" are already on the iPad through AirPlay.

Apple - iPad 2 - Stream movies and music wirelessly with AirPlay.

Sure the WiiU has some cute additions like having different things going on on the TV and controller, but its essentially an iPad (without most of the functionality).

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

That thing is literally a controller with a screen on it. It's not a computer, it doesn't do anything a computer does. It sends player input data to the WiiU console and the WiiU console sends it video and audio feed. It cannot be compared to a tablet computer.

The WiiU's only "innovation" (and I'm only using the term because you did because I feel it is no innovation at all) is applying the DS's subscreen function to a console.

AirPlay is just streaming video, which wasn't new when Apple put it on the iPad. Lots of technology has been able to stream video for years, now.

Streaming video to a screen on the controller of a console game was preceded by the PS3/PSP connectivity, which itself was derived from Gamecube/DS link cable connectivity, which was, probably inspired by the Dreamcast's VMU, which totally ripped off Sony's PocketStation, which probably a cash-in on the Gameboy and I can seriously keep this ♥♥♥♥ up for another few decades. Which is to say that saying anything the WiiU does is either innovative or a rip-off of some other product is equally ignorant and, in generally, you can never credit any one company with any one idea.

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

If anything, having two or three platforms with a tablet controller is potentially a good thing, as it means better Cross-platform support.

In fact, expect if two of the consoles end up doing tablet controllers for the third one to quickly introduce its own version.

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

My biggest problem with the tablet controller thing is that I really have reservations about the idea.
The WiiU controller looked like ♥♥♥♥.
Of course, I have not played it.



Also

Mighty Switch Force has really ♥♥♥♥ing good music

How did you get the demo early?

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

Now I'm officially addicted to Splinter Cell.

I got "Chaos theory" for 3DS during summer -11 and loved it. Now I've bought "Pandora tomorrow" and "double agent" for 99 khrones each (extremely cheap for qualitygames). I got them 3 days ago and I haven't done much else than played. I'm working on "Pandora tomorrow" first and nothing is boring. I can't play less than 6 hours straight and when I quit to do something else I want to go back and play more.

If the first game in the thrilogy is this fun, I expect that "double agent" will blow me away.

Now I feel like playing again... And btw, don't expect any artworks from me until I'm done with this.

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

Double Agent really is a piece of ♥♥♥♥. Just skip it. Honestly.

Conviction isn't as great as the old stuff and has more of an action focus but at least it's fun. Double Agent has nothing to redeem it.

Also, you need to get the real Chaos Theory so you can play co-op. My god, it is amazing. I think the HD rerelease doesn't have it, so you'll need it on Xbox (like the old one, and this would be limited to split-screen) or PC.

Noo don't say that. It has to be awesome!

I can't even get "Conviction". The newest homeconsole I have is PS2.

If "co-op" is the same as multiplayer then: hell no. I have no one to play with.
I like "Chaos theory" as it is on 3DS. I find it easier to control Sam on that than on PS2 too. That's the main thing I miss when I play "Pandora tomorrow".

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

If it's any consolation, I've heard the PS2/Wii version plays a lot different from the 360 version that I played.

True of false, I hope we simply have different taste anyway.
I would be soooo dissapointed if it sucks. I hate having bad games on my shelf, and Splinter cell is not allowed to suck.

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

I plan on picking up Mass Effect 2 for PS3 sometime over the next week or so. Never got into 1, very slow paced for me. Hoping 2 will fire things up right away.

ME3 does look pretty cool.

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

2 is better if you played 1. That interactive comic book thing isn't the same.

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

The comic book takes alot of the context out for many of your choices.

I.E Why bother saving Wrex if you dont know who he is?

Thats why I'm glad I have both games on the PC.

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

Yay! I finnished "Pandora tomorrow" moments ago.

It was fun and worth playing again many times. Though it was very hard at parts when you couldn't be fully equipped and really felt like you needed stuff like the rifle.

And I made the last mission very hard for myself. No bullets in the rifle at all. So I had to kill terrorists with the pistol from a long distance and take out soth with air foils only by guessing where his head was. I needed two, and of course I only had two. I'm proud of myself for completing this mission without getting shot at.

BUT, chaos theory is more fun and got a better story.
