    I'm part of shoryuken community. I didn't keep up with MvC3s development because I actually kind of loathe Capcom and their business streagty this generation (as much as Activision). I heard it was going to be like Tatsunoko vs Capcom and be much easier. However this game is really different from MVC/2. I can't do the type of moves that I want to do and mentally I need to get focused that the button layout is kind of like SNK fighters.

    But yeah only got it since I traded in Super Street Fighter. I hope they don't pull that shit again and you can just get DLCs to keep it up to date.
  3. Shut up you.
  4. I just bought Supreme Commander 2 with the Infinite War Battle Pack on Steam for $6.23.
  5. Thinking about pre-ordering Crysis 2.
  6. Crysis was meh.
  7. Crysis was meh because it was a open world FPS and that just doesn't ring a bell with a lot of people.

    Crysis 2 doesn't have that much freedom.

    BTW playing Ace Combat 6, I wish they just scrapped the whole story for the woman and the broken #$%#ing fighter pilot. Can not wait for ACAH and Dead Island in the future.

  9. could do without the whole kinect thing.

    In the unending competition to create the preeminent simulation racing game, Turn 10 Studios has kicked it into overdrive for this fall's Forza 4, reports MSN Autos. Let's run through some highlights from the development process (as documented by MSN), shall we?
    3-D laser-scan "select cars, including the Bugatti Veyron?" Check.
    Obtain "proprietary performance data from tire manufacturer Pirelli" to create "the most up-to-date simulation of how modern tires grip or slip in a variety of racing conditions?" Done.
    "[Isolate] the intake, exhaust and engine sounds from each vehicle" in the game to record realistic audio? You have to.
    "[Rent] out each track that appears in the game for two to three days, [shoot] terabytes worth of video and photos, and [trace] the inside, middle and outside portions of the road surface with a commercial-grade GPS system?" They did that.
    Of course, as MSN observes, "[few] players will notice this level of nuance mid-game." It's only through the endorsements of "the tiny, exacting minority of hardcore players and professional racers who train using Forza" (and other sim racers, like Gran Turismo) that we few can trust that the iterative updates over the years are actually bringing us closer to the the most accurate simulation racing game of all time.

    It's worth a chuckle, then, that Forza 4's most marketable feature is "more gimmick than breakthrough," according to MSN, and is perhaps a mini-step backwards in the race to ultimate realism. That feature, of course, is Kinect support.

    Aside from the "advanced ogling tool" (which allows players to walk around and inspect their virtualized cars; as seen at E3 2010), Forza 4's "Kinect-only mode" will also feature a "more interesting" head-tracking ability, by MSN's account: "when you lean to one side or the other, the driver's perspective edges with you, letting you peer around a blind curve or just slightly around a car before passing it." Still, even coupled with "the phantom steering wheel you can grip and steer," this experience is more "potential" than achievement.

    "I think we're just scratching the surface," game director Dan Greenawalt told MSN.

    Is the game going to be this good?
  16. Played Forza with TheBaron tonight, sorry about the dirty racing, the two other people I was playing with are just getting into the game.
  17. forza 4 is gonna kick gt5s ass which isnt really that amazing sicne even forza 3 is doing it
  18. eat a candybar and life is amazing for 10 seconds
  19. I think Crysis was #$%#ing awesome
  20. It was good. I dont mind it at all. Damn you dominated the Amalfi track long course
  21. Forza 4 is going to kick GT6 ass before it even comes out
  22. Old. I'm an AC fan but I only owned a 360 since 2010. So when it was on sale I picked it up. Not bad for a game for less then 20 bucks.

  24. ace combat #$%#ing rules
  25. so i just picked up Assassins creed 1 and 2. am i in for a treat or disappointment? i used to own AC1 for the PS3 and could not stand playing it mostly due to the controller. but like the idea of the game, and the environment.

    is AC2 much different than AC1 beyond just the story?

    also, the kinect stuff for forza will only be cool if its customizable, if you have to play with your hands out in front of you like you are holding on to a steering wheel, then it ruins the whole experience, even the cool head tracking aspect.
