  1. There should be two torch at the entrance of the volcano, just into the mic. Once both flames goes out, the door will open.


    man this game is so unique, utilizing every ds touchscreen possibility. This game is just superb, to me the second game of the year (gyakuten saiban 3/phoenix wright 3 takes it for me though).

  2. well flatout is consider to be "broken" racing game for me.. It's true, I Love it just because you ran over so much trash that it sometime get stuck on the trunk or roof of the car. Let's not forget the original flatout, you can launch your ragdoll driver from a press of a button or ran into something hard. Oh oh oh, the mini games too. Yep, best racing game ever >_>;

  3. So I played the game for about 3 days now. Only the single player of course but so far I like it, spent only about 15 mins the first day, an hour the second and today about 2 and a half hours. First thing I can tell you this is that the graphics is just barely current gen. Character facials and everything ain't very pretty as I expect. However, theres something I do find noticable as I progress through the game on my 19' monitor @720p such as HDR lighting and anti-aliasing. All in all, it's not a big leap in visual compare to Halo2 but it's good enough to be consider a current gen game.


    first the gameplay, I played this on heroic difficulty to begin with, and I did get my ass handed a few times. The A.I seems about the same, small grunts would evade you when they know they donthave a chance or they do their usual running around in circles thing. Higher tier grunts actaully stay put when they about to die or simply charges suicidal at you. The new weapons is very iffy I could say, not going to name some but you would find old weapons as well as new ones. And my favorite part of all, vehicles, goddamn theres alot more vehicles this time air/ground with returning ones as well. Well, my least favorite feature of this game would the goddamn health bar. Compare to the previous halos, this one has one goddamn bar and goes down quick on heroic mode, usually a sniper only needs one clean shot to get down to near death alert (bar turned red and blinks). Ok last by not least, the levels. Man it's awesome, I sometime stop to check the nice background far away in distance and you can notice things goes on alot, well you already should know this by now that theres a war going on. As for the level, they are never repetitive like it's predecessors.


    anyway the cinematics in the game are nice, makes it feel like a star war movie almost. Love the music scores, really fits in with the current situation and all. Character's lips sync well with dialogs.


    so yeah great game so far, here's a video review for the curious one to know everything about it:

  4. Been very busy with this game lately, already dumped 20+ hours so far. This is by far the best fps game yet imho. Not even half life1/2 comes close to match it's greatness. System shock 2 is the closet but still I can't compare it's predecessor (not fair).

    ahmad: 360 version. I don't remember toys R' us selling pc games but I maybe wrong. I'm speaking for the toys R' us where I live and I don't see pc games except children pc games and it's not on that tiny almost hidden section either.

  6. just 6 more days (my timezone) til the full game hits retail.


    I can share my experience with you guys on the demo, but theres too much to say so I'll list some cons/pros:



    -water graphics = simply amazing, I never saw in game water realism in any game with water effects than in bioshock. I could wet myself if I stare at the water animation for too long. We're talking excellent reflection, lighting, etc.

    -power upgrades(plasmids): very fun to mess around. In the demo, it let you try out pyro/shock plasmid.

    -gorgeus environments, there are some gritty and dark areas but even then, it still amazing there is a large window nearby to spectate the outside city of rapture (underwater utopia).

    -guns, hmm I can't say much but they work quite good along with plasmids.



    -demo is too short, near 5 minutes of opening then follow by another 5 minute preview of the full game after the last 2 min ending.

    -character models isn't the prettiest you seen in the game but that just might be a small critism because the game is trying to let players know the people in rapture has been ruined/altered by the effects of modifications they abused.

    -loading, pretty much takes a while to load the game on my 360(maybe 40-50 seconds), not sure how well the load times are better when the full version is out or even the pc version has better load times.

    -demo provides almost no exploration, there are limited areas for you to go so it's more of a "front point A to point B." (however full game will let you acess to all leves/areas of the game with minimal load time-confirmed on egm).


    all in all, it's pretty much one of the best demo on xbox live marketplace so far. FRom the demo play, I would highly recommend this game because this deserve Game of the Year award. This game truly defines what an FPS should be.

  7. did you even finish reading the article? I don't think so.. boo-ing is tolerable but throwing garbage like bottles is excessive, no one should do this. Not to mentioned GNR was late and they were forced to do an encore, and I doubt they would want to but no choice that they have to perform for these fags.

  8. My day was ruined by this news. I swear whats wrong with this society? I'm a fan of both GNR and MUCC and I can't stand hearing this news. It just hurt me inside as a fan,:



    As you know MUCC is opening for Guns N’ Roses’ Japan tour, the following is a translation of a Japanese fan’s Myspace post about the concert. It’s flocking pathetic what the GNR fans did to them. Fans did this to the two opening acts for Dir en Grey in Baltimore. Asshole fanboys like this make all of us look bad. If you are at a show and are next to someone booing the openers, tell them to shut theflock up and show some god damn class.


    The whole time that mucc was on, all the guns fans sat in the front rows, and didn’t let any of the mucc fans in. Ok… I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but at most live halls the audience is actually sitting on seats - you usually don’t see them because they’re all standing up (they have to be). Well… you can guess what they did. Every one of them sat there and refused to move, chattering amongst themselves and booing loudly. Security started saying “Please stand up! While there’s a musical performance on stage you must be standing at all times!” This of course was greeted with much disgruntlement, and many people left. Even after poor Tatsurou said a very humble, almost apologetic MC, during the parts where it was quiet there were guys shouting things like “Piss off! You suck! Break up already!” etc. etc. and quote, “every time the vocalist heard things like that his face would turn ashen - the drummer looked like he wanted to run away”. As soon as people started throwing bottles at the stage and interfering with the equipment Miya edged over to Tatsurou, said something into his ear, Tatsu nodded, and they stopped and the other members came over and had a group huddle. They immediately went back to playing afterwards, but Tatsurou was shaking so bad that he couldn’t even put the mike back on the mike stand properly.

    To make matters even more nightmarish, G+R were SO LATE that mucc were forced to go out and do an ENCORE, which was replied with more shouts of “Not this crap again! You can’t be serious! flock off and go home already!!”


    Do you know what the best part of all this crap was though?


    As they come on to do their encore amidst all the jeering, Tatsurou raises his mike and says “I’m sorry but, instead of background music, please bear with us just a little while longer!”, presses his hands together and bows to the floor. At this, even the guys who were booing became silent.

  9. ah yes! my favorite game has finally emulated and almost near perfect to play online. For those who have it for the latest Mame++ build, I would like to know how we can get in contact (e.g. messengers) so we can set up some casual matches. I would only prefer players who are in the states but unless you are out of the state but still maintain a average ping below 100 in the states, that would be fine too.


    so lately I've been testing 3s, the first mame+ build was sorta horrible: glitches, slowdown, just doesn't look good at all. The latest build fixes all this including kaillera support from the get-go (.dll included). so, anyone is interested, post here or drop a PM.


    here's the mame you need, everything is compiled, all credits goes to haze, el semi and andreas.
