The ending of the game kind of left me speechless. It was very well done. The part where had me shaking and I could feel my heart beat.

Also, there were so many "holy shit" moments like . so surreal.

I just finished it.

There are no words.

yeah, the map is pretty terrible. really hard to use.

also, jamie and saleop, make sure you "Complete sidequest #14, Map to Psychic Spot A" as soon as you can.

Also, this was very useful. I don't know how I'd get through the game without it! Thank you.

Just finished ep 2 and have fallen in love with this game. Anything this game lacks in navigation/combat mechanics it makes up a million times over in storytelling.

Yes, the changing perspective of the map is probably the most inconceivably stupid design decision I've seen so far.

Anyways, I'm on chapter 2 right now and the story's getting pretty interesting. The game is very much enjoyable when you're just out on the town investigating. And it's such a shame the combat segments are what they are. If this was just an adventure game I think it would be getting a lot more respect. It probably wouldn't be POPULAR but it probably wouldn't be so polarizing either. I can see why a lot of people wouldn't be able to stomach such shoddy graphics AND combat in one game in order to appreciate the plot and characters.

But hey, if they could have managed to make this game with gunplay mechanics at least somewhat comparable to RE4, this game would REALLY be something. I guess it was just budget/time constraints instead of the developers just sucking at making good gunplay?

I just got this yesterday and have played up the point right after the second combat segment. Those parts can actually get kind of scary. Moreso than any Resident Evil game has ever been. A lot of people have compared this game to Silent Hill, but I've never played a Silent Hill game so I can't comment on that.

Anyways, the combat isn't as bad as I was expecting. Every review I've read has said this is the one thing you're gonna hate about this game but, honestly, I'm finding it playable. It's pretty easy though, especially since your handgun has infinite bullets. It's probably better this way though.

Anyways, I realize the game is actually about the story, characters, and the town. I haven't got a chance to explore the town yet because I've felt obligated to keep the main plot going. York is a cool guy though, more interesting than most game protagonists are. I'm so sick of playing macho guys or, as Hundley said, avatar characters with blank personalities.

A good setting and interesting story goes a long way in making up for less-than-satisfactory gameplay mechanics for me, so so far it's pretty fun to play.

Also, I read that a lot of the developers who worked on the Tomba games work at the studio who made this. interesting.

I saw this game on Gameinformer.com a few weeks ago in an article about free games.

More like duke nukem forever.

that's exactly what it is already.

Anyways, I think Duke Nukem as a character is annoying and I didn't really understand what was so great about Duke 3D (I've only just played it recently, mind you. I didn't really experience it when it first came out) I can play the original Doom until the cows come home but Duke is pretty lackluster imo. This one looks like it's heavily influenced by Halo. From a control scheme I've seen, it looks like it even has the 2 weapon swap system.

I live in Hampton Roads too. my family has used cox for years now and have had relatively little problems. They are kind of useless when you try to call them, but if you get a service person to come to your house they can usually solve your problems quickly, as long as the problem lies within their service of course.

Billy Mitchell is so much cooler than Steve Wiebe who makes Christian rock albums.

How is Canada Day traditionally celebrated?  You mentioned fireworks, but I don't imagine Canadians celebrating in the way of grilling ribs, hotdawgs and hamburgas like we do in the States.

im not canadian but I imagine that is pretty much how they celebrate it. maybe they throw in some poutine as well

i keep em because i like looking back at them as fun memories.

this is kind of a strange topic though. i think it would have been better if it was a "post funny chatlogs" topic.

Donkey Kong Country was great, but Donkey Kong Country 2 perfected the formula and IMO is the best SNES platformer..

DKC 3 is OK but the levels were a bit too "gimmicky" for my taste.

Oh man, I'm playing ACTION FIST and it hella rules.


Goddamn look at that shit. This is what videogames are about!!

holy crap that looks incredible. I wish I was on a windows computer or else i would play it right now. is it linear or metroidvania like cave story? because a metroidvania game with that kind of co-op shooting gameplay is one of the best premises for a game ever.

Matt and Trey themselves said that part wasn't meant to be censored. Comedy Central censored out that entire speech even though it wasn't about Mohammed at all.
