Game Thread XXVIII - Goodbye Midway

Discussion in 'General Chat' started by Fluchtwagen, Dec 5, 2008.

  1. question for other PS3 owners, can you look at your acquired trophies online like you can through the xbox website and achievements? im looking up info on LBP to see what i need to get to get 100%, and im looking and i cant seem to find a list of trophies ive already earned on the website.
  2. gotta be defective.... definitly the same to me too.

    Also, on another note, I've borrowed my cousins X360 for 2 or 3 weeks, and I dont like the controllers. I dont know why so many people think they're superior to PS3 controls.
    Batteries? wtf? Easily the worst part.
    worst d-pad ever. I can see why Xbox owners think some people are crazy for preferring d-pads over joystick in certain games. PS3 has a good d-pad.
    and the a/b/x/y buttons are way too close to the shoulder buttons. Feels really awkward.
    Seems like its made for really small hands.

    Gears Of War 2 is good fun though, and so is Vigilante 8 Arcade <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/grin.gif"></A>
  3. i like the joystick placement on the 360, and the way it fills up my hands vs. the PS3 where there is just too much space between some parts of my hands and the actual controller, do to the controller not being a shape that hands form easily too.

    i agree though there are faults, i never use the D-Pad, but the few times i have to i hate it. never had problems with the buttons though... i hope the next one changes as much as this one has from the original xbox controller... one of the things i hate most about the PS controllers, it was great when it came it was the PS1, decent with the PS2, but now it just needs to be reworked.
  4. Luke knows more about that than I do, but I know you can see everything in the trophy collection screen under games.
  5. Ok, Home is pretty funny at times. Especially the dance party in the corner of the Town Center thing.
  6. yeah, he pointed that out last night, but im not able to use the PS3 right now and was looking to check on my computer through my PSN account.
  7. how did you get in!? ive been trying for ... 4 or 5 days now.
  8. I've been in like every day since it's been live, so it's never been a problem for me. No idea why your connection isn't working.

  10. I saw the steam sale today, I bought L4D christmas day full price <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
  11. eh, just remember Valve always does boxing week sales for the future
  12. Hmm, I think I'll get RACE 07 and World of Goo.

    Thanks for the inflow!
  13. i might get world of goo and defense grid: the awakening (tower defese)
  14. i'd get bioshock again if it had achievements but it doesn't
  15. I checked in the morning (here) and it had $5 off, but when I went to buy it in the arvo it had gone back up to normal price. So I didn't think there were any sales coming <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
  16. wtf are achievements for?
  17. So, what are the most fun Rock Band DLC songs?

    I got to play Guitar Hero World Tour today and as I suspected, it sucks balls. If 1 person in the group fails, the whole group fails because there is no ability to save them like in Rock Band 1/2. Also, Rock Band 2 has a no-fail mode to turn on. These things are pretty important for making the game an accessible party game. Also, the text for the GHWT lyrics is harder to read due to their choice of font, especially on SDTVs. The set list in GHWT also hurts my eyes.
  18. LolomG u want a tissue cry baby?!?!
  19. GH also has a no fail mode i think, but you just have to put in a cheat.
  20. are there any boxing week or some kind of sale on left 4 dead for 360? i dun wanna pay full price for it, but i love the game.
  21. Left 4 dead is very fun, but it seems to lack a lot of content. This is a little concerning for me.
  22. I beat Portal. What a great game.
    I love the momentum puzzles. I cannot beat one level though. the turret bonus level #17.
    Any tips on how to sneak past them? I cant move the blocks in the right places to block those damned things.
  23. E-Respect
  24. dont you gota throw them through portals
  25. ive gotten 100% on all levels in lbp except the ones in india and russia. i have all but one bubble in all 3 indian locations, and still need to do quite the ammount of work in russia. but im pretty sure i'll be able to finish that pretty soon.

    after that its all about finishing all levels without dying. then i think i'll pretty much be done with the platinum requirements, except for the online stuff, but im pretty sure i'll be able to do that stuff pretty easily, just time consuming.
