Dunno about ODST (it's probably a similar situation, and Halo 3's visuals haven't aged too well, so it'll probably have a "more of the same" feeling attached to it), but apparently the SP campaign on MW2 is pretty linear, and the main points are the visuals and scripted set-pieces, which obviously lose a lot of punch after the first playthrough. AI is still braindead and IW hasn't ditched the infinite respawning in some parts of the game, so there goes the interest in replaying multiple times to get more value out of the game without joining the online mob.

2009 was a relatively weak year for FPSs.

Edit: Archie saves the day. You'd be better off renting them.

Yeah online is where the real action takes place for MW2 with it's numerous mp modes and playing with up to 17 other players in a given match. That's where the fun is. ODST by itself not so much because it doesn't have it's own matchmaking mp portion and it's higher price was only helped by the inclusion of the Halo 3 mp especially if you hadn't purchased the maps for it yet. Go with a rental unless you can get them at a cheap enough price.

The mp portion of ODST can be played 2 player offline and is a blast if you dig fighting wave after wave of ever increasing foes but I don't care for splitscreen myself because I dislike sharing screen space. MW2 also has Special Ops which is a variety of missions that can be played by one or 2 players offline and it supposedly is very good and adds a lot to the game but I have yet to play it myself so I can't really comment on it.

I guess it really depends on price. Also ODST comes with an mp Halo 3 disc that gives you all the maps and the ability to play the complete Halo 3 mp experience without the original Halo 3 disk but it'll be pretty much useless if you don't play mp although I think you can also play it with friends offline.

Thanks for that, I appreciate it. Sadly these modes will never get played by me and I already own Halo 3 and dont touch the maps on that game either.

I will pick them up when they come down to a cheap price then. Thanks again.

Usually with shooters though I at least play through them twice, if there is a level select.

Merry Christmas, man. I guess they take Paypal, and yes, you can back the game up to a disc, the games are tied to your account, so you can download them from any computer.

You know lately with the growing of digital downloads I've been wondering if in the eventuality of one's passing if this stuff can be willed to someone. I'd imagine that over a lengthy period in someone's life they could quite possibly amass a small fortune of digital goods.

I'll be happy if the license even transfers to the original owner from one console to the next.

Bioshock.  C'mon guys.  Really? I mean if you had not heard music from that era before, or had not read Ayn Rand you might think it was amazing, but it was schlock, utter schlock. Taking the stuff they stole, the gameplay does not stand on it's own.

What the... for christmas I hope Aspro gains good taste.

Some quick impressions on LBP Pirates pack. It is no where near as good as the MGS pack. I have seen user made levels that seem like more effort was put into them. The music is sadly not from Pirates. The water mechanic is fun, it is like Sonic in that you have a certain amount of time to get air and there are bubbles in the water where you can refill the air meter. You swim around by moving the stick any direction. Good mechanic, it can be used in puzzles and such but not the game changer that the gun was for MGS.

I downloaded some new Sonic Unleashed DLC levels, there was a sale on them. They are so awesome, the whole game should have had wild levels like these. The main problem is that Sega clearly has no clue how to work on the PS3, the framerate is a disaster. I could count the frames, that is how slow it was. The camera can be a pain at time. Some levels have Sonic running around a 3D environment like a Mario 64, well this game was not designed for that so it feels like Sonic is on ice the whole time. The ideas are there, the core gameplay is there, the polish is nowhere to be found.

I was going to give impressions but I only played 50 mins. At first I felt meh, too similar to the original and the slingshot whilst cool feels difficult to balance between where you want it to go and the camera angle you want to see.

Then, well you know the feeling because you played the first game I got on the paint missions and played the same level endlessly because I just HAD to get all those blocks off in 5 throws. I knew you could do it, I just had to work it out!

Grinning Pretty cool.

Anyhow I wont be sampling UCC for a while because EA has put up 100 free dlc levels of their own.

Oh oh, to show how easy downloading UCC is in Boom Blox I went to the creation page and it auto searches all levels made by your registered friends.

I haven't chatted to Supreme AC in like a year but it found his level in seconds which I could download.

The user ratings weren't great on it Nyaa

"To tell you the truth, I actually wanted to create Link’s Crossbow Training 2. I thought that we should do something more and better in the field of the first person shooter, based on our experience of the first game. For example, I was thinking that maybe we could intensify the multiplayer mode. The original game was really just a solo game but I thought that we could add a true multiplayer mode with multiple users playing together, from remote areas, over the Wi-Fi Connection. I thought that we could add a true multiplayer mode. The fact of the matter is that a lot of people inside Nintendo insisted that I should work on a new Legend Of Zelda title rather than working on more Crossbow Training." - Eiji Aonuma

Sony Moving Away from Cell-based PS4

Goto says there are signs that some time this summer, Sony was looking into using this updated SPU design in the core of the PS4. At the very least, he says, the design was a strong candidate.

However, he's recently started hearing about other plans. While he's unable to get into the specifics, at a broad level, the new plans call for a PC-like multicore setup.

Goto also provided a few guesses as to when we'll see the next generation of hardwaree. He believes that because Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo, are looking into architecture solutions now in 2009, the next generation will come around 2012. The reason for this is that it takes 24 months to take a system from concept to production.

In addition, he expects next generation portable systems like PSP2 to precede the release of next generation consoles.

It would probably be in Sony's best interest to go with PC architecture since most devs prefer using architecture that they're familiar with. This has been a big benefit for Microsoft, and Sony has had a history of making difficult-to-program-for consoles, which has hurt them lately.

Next gen in 2012? That would be nearly three years away if all of those consoles all come out holiday 2012. I guess we'll see. I am curious about what Nintendo will do next. I assume their next console will be roughly as powerful as the current-gen PS3/360. It would be far cheaper for them to use current-gen HD tech in 2012, and most of their casual fan base won't care. Bring on the PS3/360 Wii HD ports!

Happy Christma, enjoy those hovercrafts while they last.

    Children, our lives have been gongs striking; clamour and boasting; cries of despair; blows on the nape of the neck in gardens.
