New Game Thread XXVI

  1. I think I'm going to pre-order Left 4 Dead on Steam. The positive impressions are so consistent that I'm sure it'll be fun.
  2. PC over 360 again?

    Do you ever buy multiplatform games for your 360?
  3. But what's good to one person isn't always good to another.

    Even though most of you think they're bad games, I absolutely loved the demos for GRID, BF:BC, and TimeShift.

    And from what list I might be tempted to buy Baja, WipEout HD, and SCORE if I could first play the demos.
  4. It depends. I buy games with longevity or great graphics on PC. Action games or shorter games, or ones with local coop, I'll rent or buy for 360.

    I just rented Dead Space for 360, because it's not out on PC yet and I want something new to kill the time until Farcry 2 and Fable 2.

    Dead Space is fvcking scary, I'm playing it in a room with a gigantic window and tons of sunlight, but it's getting my heart pumping.
  5. I want to buy a good game for 360 today, like a shooter with good multiplayer or something

  6. Luke, does the knife still glitch like shit on BF?
  7. It's an FPS... of course he's getting it on PC.
  8. I just rented Dead Space for 360 and I'm loving it. It's pretty awesome, Bioshock meets Resident Evil. No multiplayer though <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>

    If you don't already have them, you can pick up Halo 3 or Call of Duty 4 on the cheap now used, those games have insanely huge multiplayer communities.

    The big slew of releases hasn't quite started yet. Gears 2 Nov.7 is probably the next big thing in multiplayer.
  9. Ya, the thumb sticks work but they are hardly a decent substitute for the real thing.
  10. "the real thing"? As in keyboard/mouse? lol.
  11. go make a thread lying to us, that way maybe we will think you are older than 16, and dont live with your parents.
  12. shooters and rts's are made for the pc, anyone who buys them for consoles is retarded, unless there is a flaw with the PC version, or its unavailable for the PC. i got bioshock for PC after playing it on Xbox.
  13. No, I just haven't successfully pulled one off. <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>

    Remember, CQB and I aren't good friends.

  15. i'd be disappointed not getting LBP, but i'll be getting Fable2 that day, i can wait until i move to get it, actually by then a used copy should be down near $45 bucks or so...
  16. You can get LBP for $45 brand new from Circuit City. I posted about it a couple days ago.

    wtf? i just got this seconds ago, oct. 14th was 3 days ago.
  18. I'd much rather play a game on my big ass TV, with my great speakers, on my comfy couch, where I can easily chill with other people, while playing multiplayer very easily than cooped up alone in my room at my computer. I guess that's retarded.
  19. i saw that, but in 2.5 months when i finally move into my new place, the game will be easy to find at that price, if not lower, anyway. im pretty sure its going to sell a lot, and a lot of poeple will get sick of it quickly, like every single hyped game ever (see halo) which makes the price fall faster.
  20. Really? I knifed quite a few people in the short while I played the demo.
  21. Shea? Your real name is Shea?
  22. yes.

    i like it. its original, ive met 2 people in my life with the same name, a guy and a girl, although the girls was spelled Shay.

    "We learnt yesterday that there is a lyric in one of the licensed tracks which some people may find offensive, and which slipped through the usual screening processes. Obviously MM and Sony together took this very seriously. LBP should be enjoyable by all. So within 12 hours of hearing about this issue involving a lyric (in Somalian, I believe!), we prepared an automatic day 0 patch and had a new disk image ready; however a decision was made within Sony that the right thing to do for quality and support of people without internet access was to replace existing disks. They assure us that they are doing everything in their power to get things straightened out as fast as possible, and will announce dates soon." -- Media Molecule, developer of LBP
  24. It sucks about the LBP delay. I got my copy yesterday. I wonder how much the leaked originals will be worth. Anyway, the game is enjoyable, but I can't connect to the online servers, so I have more time to unlock stuff in the game.
  25. ouch, it is a family game though, its nice to see them replacing the disks and taking the hit, rather than just hoping they have internet to patch it.

    still, sucks that such a small thing ended up being the cause, i wonder what the lyric said...
