Odds, Ends, Bits And Pieces

I really can't settle upon a decent topic for this week's editorial, so it's time to dip into the grab-bag of odds and ends.

Medal of Honor is great, but...

I'm in the minority when it comes to Medal of Honor and while I will defend it against critics who don't seem to be reviewing the same game, the short campaign still bugs me. Everyone says multiplayer isn't hurting anything and that it's better to have a 5-hour campaign and awesome multiplayer these days, but I'm not so sure. The number of people who would greatly appreciate a fantastic 15-hour campaign with a solid storyline and great character development is higher than developers believe. And if multiplayer didn't exist and all resources could be dedicated to single-player...well, you see where I'm going with this. Just saying.

GT5 better not miss 2010

Even the most die-hard fan might get pissed if gets pushed too far. I understand the apparent need for the delay but really, it's all starting to chafe. Yamauchi can apologize all he wants (it probably isn't even his fault this time) but in the end, gamers only see a date...or lack thereof. No good. Just release it.

Not a nail...but a bolt?

Had a bolt the size of my little finger taken out of my tire today. ...had no idea something that big and blunt could even puncture a tire...must've run over it on the highway or something. Amazing that it only resulted in a slow leak. Weird.

The PSP has cool stuff, you know.

All sorts of RPGs, for one. I've been seeing a lot and let's not forget about the new God of War. We often opine the loss of traditional-style role-playing but we should be specific: it's only dead on consoles; on handhelds, it can still be found. Cladun: This is an RPG is a good example of that; try it if you haven't already. Oh, and I have to give ZHP a shot...I've got the code. Just been busy.

I forgot...weddings are a big deal

In my own insular little world, I had forgotten that weddings are like all-weekend extravaganzas now. And if you're in the wedding party - as I was - there's like...a lot of stuff to do. Not that I minded in the least; it was for someone I've known since I was about 6 years old, so I was happy to do it. Still, the whole thing gets one thinking about a million different things at once. Hard to put into words, really.

Maybe I'll get Fable III

I liked the first but missed the second, and depending on when GT5 comes out, I may have time. Then again, I also want to play Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and of course, there are a ton of reviews waiting...we'll have to see. It's just that, besides Gears of War 3, I can't think of anything I want for the 360 and I've been looking. Forgot Fable III is out this month. Hmm...

Seeing as how the PC requirements haven't been released yet, at least I haven't found any, my guess is that Windows 7 should run it with no real problems. Most new games are adding Windows 7 support now that it's becoming more widely used. Windows 7 runs Vista games also by the way so you should be covered no matter what.

If you are running 7 you have no worries. Well, as long as your hardware is powerful enough.
But yes, 7 will run any modern game.

I am with you Ben. I wish just once that a developer would ditch the multiplayer and put all eyes on an expansive Single Player campaign.

I remember when games were worth the price tag and developers didn't cater to the A.D.D. riddled populace. Let's start a petition.

The whole 5 hour campaign thing is the main reason I wont touch a Call of Duty or pretty much most shooters. Killzone 2 I still haven't finished being that I started on the hardest difficulty and I'm not great at shooters. I hear I'm at the end though.

And yes GT5 BETTER make it 2010. I have been holding off on buying another car game awaiting its arrival.

And on another note I just got accepted to the LBP2 beta and I'm psyched XD Can't wait for it to finish downloading.

killzone 2 on elite wasnt bad at all. the only problem i had was that tank on the train, everything else was fine. played hard mode 2 time and elite 2 times, not because i wanted to though. i beat elite mode the first time and got platinum but i couldnt sync trophies before ps3 broke. so i played hard and elite again after i got my ps3 back. i actually found an exploit against the last boss, i think i told jawknee about it.

it's a shame that linear experiences can't have more length to them... it seems like a lot of games in this style are quite beatable in a dedicated day...

the best linear experience with depth this gen is the uncharted series... it probably averages out to 10-12 hours... and probably quicker for those who play the hell out of it... but, i don't understand why these other linear action games have to be so short...

and since this topic is random, i though i'd ask a random gaming question... are one of you reviewing new vegas?? if so, when can we expect the article, and... how much fun are you having so far?

I read the Medal of Honor review over at IGN and couldn't help but have a chuckle. Almost every single gripe they had about the game coincided with what I see in MW and MW2. It was like they were reviewing a CoD but without the liberal CoD bias.

It sounds like GT5 won't be too far in the offing, but since it doesn't affect me I can only sympathize with my racing brethren.

I'm pretty happy with my PSP (especially with Crisis Core) and am slightly upset at all of you (especially LV) for not telling me it has a video out jack the whole time I was complaining about having to play on a tiny screen or on-the-go. I hope VersusXIII has a battle system similar to Crisis Core, because even though it is action based it still calls for strategies, utilizes gear and spells effectively, and tosses a bunch of monkey wrenches into the battles so they aren't just hack hack block.

Never got a flat tire, never wanna have one.

With Weddings, I think people are retarded for blasting away thousands upon thousands of dollars on them. If I ever marry it will be a simple ceremony, unless I hit the lottery or something.

I liked Fable, but not enough to get a 360 for FabII, Fable 3 hasn't improved in the graphics department one iota and sounds kind of bad to me because from what I read it plans to give you a short adventure and then switch over to you just being a ruler who schmoozes people to win them over to your side and then give battle orders like a strategy game. Not for me.

Also, it has become abundantly clear that I am drinking wayyyy too much Dr. Pepper these days.

are you guys serious about not knowing about that video out jack? that resistance game on there uses it to play on the tv with a dual shock. it was a major selling point of it. either way that cable to hook it up is only like $20 and WAY worth it.

when you hook up that cable to the psp and tv you then hold the video button for 5 seconds i believe and it switches to the video output. just for reference im talkin about the one next to the music note that looks like a little tv on it.

i was just teasin my buddy that the human body is like 85% water or something, well he is like 85% dr. pepper. ha ha now i want a dr. pepper...

Typical wedding these days on average is like paying for a year of college: between 20k and 40k. But unlike college/university, people are driven to delay it for that reason. And considering the divorce rate, it's astonishing how many people who are left with nothing except with unshakable bills as their only reminder of the past.

I didn't know about it until I bought my PSP. I hope it works on more than just Resistance (thought I think that's the only game that lets you use a DS3) cuz I wanna play RPGs on my TV. I just bought the cable over the net, should be here next week. Squeeee

the video out works on anything you do with your psp. doesnt have to be in a game or anything you can just display the xmb right on your tv. the ds3 is the thing that is tied to resitance. that is the only game i know of that does it. that video out is just a function of the psp and will work no matter what you are doing. also like on my set up whatever goes into my tv comes out my stereo receiver in 5.1 (7.1 if i had 2 more speakers)

I agree that the cost of weddings is out of control. But this one wasn't too bad...I think it had the illusion of being crazy expensive without actually BEING crazy expensive.

And besides, I think it gives us all a little hope and happiness. Sappy as that may be, we sorta need that every now and then.

Quite true. For that reason that's not the kind of conversation i'd make with someone who just got married, or is planning to in the near future.

I myself, rather would put the money to the my wife's necessities, like a car, college bills, nice ring and dress, and have a "quaint" ceremony and reception with the people who matter...and a even a prenup.

A couple months ago, my parents went to one in Boston, where the uncle of the wife rented out the entire top two floors of the Hyatt, to see the fireworks, and traffic was rerouted by the police from the hotel, as well as security stops to check people for id, invitation, or reservation. The uncle was feeling generous after he sold his company to Cisco for 2.3 billion dollars. When all was said in done, i think he could've just bought them couple a house or two.

Last year, when i was overseas, i went shopping with my cousin for his brides ring and jewelry set. I saw the bill for just that, and it was as much as my college loan was. And over there, weddings take place over many days. The rented two floors of a hotel for the celebration, and an entire building for the reception. And there were more people there than we knew, i'm sure, and more food and drink than all the people could even eat.

Talk about a deterant and a half.

GT5 BETTER COME OUT THIS YEAR or I WILL BE PISSED. I been waiting out on getting a racing game waiting for GT5( I did not get MOH bc of GT5).
I bought Dirt 2 when it was about a month old, it's a great game but only a GT game can keep you playing for that long and a GT game can keep you playing for years(until it's sequel). I should go pick up GT5p to get warmed up and satisfy my needs until most likely a very early dec release.
I do have RDR to play. I have beaten all the missions but a game got saved on top of, so I had to start all over, this time I'm shooting for 100%. oH yeah and I want to get the platinum trophy for Uncharted 2.
I guess I have stuff to do before GT5 release, maybe the delay was good... ? It is good, PD do what you have too and get it out to us
... BEFORE 2010 IS OUT!


GT5 countdown; ends Nov. 30 - Dec. 8

Ben, if you haven't played Orange Box, yet, i highly recommend it for anyone looking for an engrossing fps single-player experience. Half Life 2 and episodes 1&2, three years after the release on the consoles, still remain as my most memorable fps experience...even with playing the "buggy" ps3 version (which wasn't noticeable bad). Actually Portal holds that honor for me, but Half Life games that come with it rank right after it (talk about getting your buck's worth).

I know you weren't so hot on endorsing it because of the overblown bad press it got for being a miserable port handed off to EA (and Newell's commentary didn't help). But I figure that after enjoying Bayonetta, you'd reconsider playing the Orange Box.

For sure. It was basically the reason why i'd bite my lip during Newel's trash-taking days. Portal was perhaps the most revolutionary game i've ever played. And i'm absolutely psyched about Episode 3/HL3, even it doesn't come in the next two years. Plus, from what i hear, we'll be using "Aperature Science" tech in it, if you know what i mean. Oh yes, and the credits-roll music for Portal absolutely is my favorite vg song.

I tried getting into Fable years ago when the first released. I couldn't get into it. I liked the narrative and the unique folkish vibe (sort of) but I dunno. I tried the Fable 2 demo and it was mostly nice and some unique charm to it. Ultimately, for me, it's been one of those "maybe someday I'll get around to it when I've got nothing better to play games" but, that time hasn't come and I don't see it coming anytime soon.

Gears 3, yeah, I'm game. The first Gears was probably the first game I played at the start of this console gen that really made me say "WOW, this looks way, WAY better than everything before it"

And yes, GT5 better make it this year. If not, it'll make my GotY pick difficult.

Allen wrenches are not useless. I've had blunt objects puncture my tires but no leak. Would just notice the problem, pull it out and patch the tire myself. That's the problem when using high speed tires on regular roads. Damn DOT and not keeping the roads clean.

I'm also not liking this trend of giving the MP priority over the SP. I think it's another reason why I appreciate Uncharted 2, making SP and MP both as good as possible.

I sure hope GT makes it for 2010, otherwise Hot Pursuit 2 will have to hold me off.

I don't even have a driver's license (can't afford it), let alone a car, so I guess you could be kinda happy you have a tire to get flat :).

no big deal about the delay, Gran Turismo will come out this year and i have pre-order it, not a fan of car games but you know, its a exclusive, and i support they to death, and is THE car sim, so i will learn to play it, and about short campaign they realy make me off, and is sad but reviews over the web are saying that VANQUISH is about 4-6 hour campaign, with is very disappoint, i have high hopes for this game, and the game dont have multiplayer, if this became a trend the number of games that i will buy will drop a lot.

So just pointing this out Gamestop has a gt5 release of january 2011. I'm not saying they are right but so far this year they've been right about everygame being delayed! I went in to pre order two worlds 2 and lbp2 on separate occasions under the assumption they hadn't been delayed! I had heard nothing of delays on either of these games at that point and they assured me they were delayed! Sure enough couple weeks later the word gets out that they are delayed.

Hopefully this time Gamestop is wrong! Cus that would be a shame!

The number of people who appreciate a fantastic 15-hour campaign may be higher than developers believe, but they are not higher than those who appreciate fantastic multiplayer. Hence the reason we don't get too many 15 hour fps campaigns.

That, and since devs seem determined to make games multiplat, we're stuck with the DVD gimp effect. An exclusive CoD or MoH, now that would be something to see.

I havent played the sp mode in MoH yet, but at least it's not like BFBC2. That had to be the shortest campaign I've ever seen.

I think part of my problem is that I always go for platinum. So, if the game doesn't require that I beat it on hard, I don't. BFBC2 could be beat on easy save the last level. Therefore I flew through it very quickly.

I know with MoH, you have to beat it on Tier 1 mode which is timed and has limited ammo. That sounds like a challenge that will give it some length.

i beaten tier 1 already and it wasnt bad at all. i never ran of ammo and only cut the time limit close on about 2 missions. everything else i beat with at least 4 mins to spare.

MOH is a very good game. The stand alone campaign was a little glitchy and the only problem I had was during the airfield mission when one of my npcs glitched out the map. I actually like the multiplayer mode.The only map I don not like is the Kunar Base one.Its very easy to trap spawn the other team if your fast enough.

The short single player campaigns does seem to to be something that is prevalent in the military shooter genre, I guess because multilpayer in those games is such a phenomenon nowadays. There are still some meaty single player modes in other genres, albeit maybe not as epic as older gen games - it made me chuckle when I saw reviews of Castlevania LOS saying the game is too long.

I'm currently on a ResiEvil complete playthrough-a-thon, great single player times being had. It does however feel a little cheap somtimes the way they string it out. Not just the endless back & forth, but making you play the game over and over. E.g. having to play ResiEvil 2 four times to get all the A/B Claire/Leon scenarios. Not that I'm complaining - I was more than happy to play through Resident Evil (REmake) as Jill & Chris.

PSP has some awsome turn based rpgs (although a lot of them are ports of ps1 and ps2 classics).

The problem for me is that I just can't be bothered playing games on hand helds anymore. We don't even have the option here in the UK to connect the PSP to the TV to play games. In a truly bizarre decision, Sony made it so that in the UK (I'm not sure if this applies to other PAL regions as well), you can only ouput UMD video playback to your TV screen, but not games. WTF? Who would want to watch a UMD movie on their TV....?

is this site always gunna trash the modern warfare series, which is universally considered better than medal of honor?

Ben, I used to work in a shop that specialized in tire repairs. You'd be surprised some of the stuff that can flatten a tire. I've seen, twigs, bolts, bones, rocks and glass pierce a tire. Heck, one time, I saw a 6 inch nail go through the sidewall and into the tread at a 45 degree angle.

Well, thankfully it didn't flatten the tire. But I don't doubt all that stuff.

When you live in the middle of a corn field you see some weird stuff. Glad to hear you got off easy though. Fixing a tire is a lot cheaper than buying a new one.

It's definitely cheaper to fix the flat but if you pay the extra $5 a tire for the service warranty, you can just swap them out with no additional charges. Comes in extremely handy when the MSRP on your tires is over $400 each.

Still not worried about GT5 since I'll be getting NFS instead. Even more hyped up for it now that the cops will be using EMPs also in the attempts to stop you.

I beat moh this morning and I love that game! The campaign minus some development issues was so awesome! I really don't care what any one says bout it! It was exactly what I was hoping it would be. It delivered for me! It was short which sux Cus I do appreciate longer campaigns. But moving on to mp!

speaking of flat tires.... i once pulled up to park in front of my house, went right over a rock, and got a flat when i parked. so, i put on my piece of garbage donut spare, which in turn got a flat on my way to get it fixed. i was mad that day.

Ben, oftentimes when something punctures your tire and gets stuck there, it acts as a make-shift plug as well for the hole, so the leak will be slow. And if you're running on a substantial speed, the centripetal force of the tire (or something like that) will put less pressure on the hole. When we had a flat tire and brought it to a mechanic to had the hole plugged up, he told me that slow leaks can handle (and is better on) slow speed to even make the leak slower.

On MoH: I still haven't touched SP (would want to, but had an all-day MP marathon yesterday, then went to play U2 for the bonus). But yeah, they really need to fix some of the spawn issues. Me being on the benefiting side, I chanced upon the other side of the map where they spawned, and sniped each one until I had an attack support available, used it then had one again, used it then one again.

::evil laugh::

but yeah, I wouldn't wanna be on the receiving end of what I just did, so best if they had a spawn spot on the middle part of the map, or at least detect a space that isn't directly on any enemy's reticule.

Pretty sure that's what happened. The bolt definitely acted like a partial plug by itself.

Of course, it still needed to go. :)

focusing on mp more then sp is just about sells. if one of your friends get it and like it he will tell his friends and they will tell their friends and so on. its sad that companies force these devs to go that rout when i know they would love to focus on both and make a game from the heart and not from the pocket.
