    Bad Company 2

    Definitely ditch standard mode and go for hardcore, as these lads said.

    Bad Company 2

    Play one somewhat decent round as each class and if you do something other than die, you will unlock those initial items. They're extremely easy to get. This isn't like BF2 where it takes 50 hours to hit your first unlock.

    Bad Company 2

    You have to unlock your ammo box and medbox by playing that specific class for a while.Annoying, but UNLOCKS ARE COOL, right? *bleh* And yeah, requesting shit from other players, just point your crosshair at them and press Q. :) Give it time, though... don't expect to be great at it right away. Your skillz will come when you learn the ins and outs of the game.

    Bad Company 2

    Yo Brock. We hardly play now... still do, just not frequently like we did on release (waiting for BF3!), but we "manage" (if you could call it that) a casual clan (h.IV+) which I started in CoD4 to help us stick out as server regulars, which has had a few people come and go, but currently basically consists of myself, NukeJockey, and viremia from these forums. We have our own Ventrilo and whatnot, but feel free to add us to Steam if you like and we can probably jump into a game. Awesome, so basically I just find a game, invite said friend to game, and they'll automatically be put in the same team/squad if available? If the said team has player slots available, yeah it'll squad you up with your friends automatically. If it is going to unbalance the teams too much, it'll put you on the opposite team.

    [PC] The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

    Might have something to do with him being an emotionless 'mutant', perhaps...?

    I've read somewhere that the game difficulty changes depending on how much case investigation you do. Linear story, I'm fine with... but if it holds your hand all the way through your cases, that'd be a game breaker. I have read though, there's options for 'case music' -- where the music stops once all your clues have been found. And there's another option that makes your character turn their head and look directly at things of interest. If you turn both of those off, I imagine you're pretty much on your own, clue-wise. By the sounds of it, it lets you progress even if you haven't found everything... making your investigations more difficult over the course of the game. Have a read through this. http://au.ps3.ign.com/articles/116/1167736p1.html Also IGN have a review up. 8.5 overall for both PS3, and 360, but the 360 scored a 7.5 for graphics, while the PS3 scored an 8, due to more graphical glitches and slowdown on the 360 from what I can tell.

    [PC] The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

    I'm waiting for the damn pre-load to start on Steam! Argh. What kind of top-end title has no pre-load these days?! :(

    L.A. Noire

    I agree. Linear isn't always bad. I don't get today's obsession with open-ended, sandbox games...

    L.A. Noire

    Hope some more reviews start springing up this week!

    Keep an eye on www.ecogamer.com.au as well, they usually post online deals, catalogs, etc. for all the big games. I just found this voucher on there...

    The new Mortal Kombat

    All good Ashlar, PSN is coming back up tonight or tomorrow. I'm curious to see if we can play directly with people on our friends lists, or if it's blind matchmaking like I recall ranked Tekken 6 being (laggy shiiiiiiiit).

    [PS3, PSP] PSN users - your data has been compromised

    Apparently it was up, but they took it down again to clear the back log of people trying to update their shit and change their passwords. Either way, it should be up and running some time in between now and tomorrow night I'd say.

    [PS3, PSP] PSN users - your data has been compromised

    The PSN service for Australia is coming back up today, according to Kotaku.com.au! It's going up and down at the moment apparently, but hopefully by tonight it should be up and stable. :)

    L.A. Noire

    What's in the game that might warrant an edited version, by the way? Anybody know? I've been trying to stay away from most media regarding the game. I've only seen the trailers I've posted in this thread and one that showed a tiny bit of gameplay (shooting/driving), from memory.

    L.A. Noire

    Not quite. The train tracks are just going under a little maintenance. Metro advises passengers be patient. Here, have the new launch trailer from two days ago to entertain yourselves on this journey!

    L.A. Noire

    For clarification, the thread title isn't tagged 'cause I figured people visiting a GAMING section actually know about games. :)

    Sony Announcement incoming.

    Whether we hear/read/see it in announcement form from Sony, or read it right here on a forum -- it doesn't matter. Just tell us what it is!

    L.A. Noire

    Inform us on the relevance of Brink in an L.A. Noire thread? :)
  19. Reb1rth.

    L.A. Noire

    No it's not. And no. People should just be less sensitive, and more awesome... like me. Also, thanks for the review Hector. Interesting read. Hopefully some more reviews start rolling in soon, seeing as it's a week away from release. I'd like to see what other sites have to say about it.

    Still no pre-load on Steam. :(

    [All] Brink

    Another over-hyped mediocre game bites the dust.

    Chucking "sickies" (or leave) on Game release days

    Hmm, not on the day of release... but I have on the day after, when I got home, played all night, then realized it was too late to get a decent sleep and the fact I wanted to play mooooore. I think the last time I recall was GTA IV, though. A day off for myself, though... is as simple as sending an sms to my workmate (who acts as a kind of supervisor, but not -- my workplace is odd), saying I don't feel well and won't be in to work for the day. Nobody bats an eyelid. Woot.

    [PC] The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

    I feel like breaking out into the song "I am a real American" can't remember who its by though. I'm so glad I pre-ordered through gog now. I think you can just call that song "Hulk hogans entrance theme" and everyone knows what you are talking about. I wouldn't.
