Are you playing on PS3? Is the record->Upload to YouTube feature as good as it sounded?

I quite enjoyed the demo and I'll probably pick this up when it's cheap. Zooming around with the hook and chute was awesome fun.

Nope, 360. I didn't even know about that feature. I just bought it for the blowing up of things. It has met that criteria admirably.

Ah fair enough. On the PS3 it auto records the last 30 seconds of play (to capture awesome random moments) and you can also set it to record the next 10 minutes of gameplay for when you're going to pull off some stunts etc. More games need that kind of thing.

We started co-opping on Splinter Cell Conviction last night. Once we got to grips with all the technical aspects of the gameplay you can really get into the swing of being a black-ops badass. With the stealth aspects to the game I was reminded of the trickier Arkham Asylum moments when you could not alert anyone to your presence. In SCC, by mastering control over your massive array of weapons and tech you get a good feeling of satisfaction sneaking in and clearing a room. I'm not so sure about the storyline - it seems only to flesh out bits of the Sam Fisher campaign story, so I didn't feel too involved with the characters. The cinematography (or whatever you call that in a game) is impressive and there are tons of lovely details like graphics and flashbacks projected onto walls.

I wish I liked stealth games as they always seem to have the most interesting plots and be really satisfying but I just can't get over how annoying I find it when you get found out and have to start all over again. There are so many games I have started and never finished because they throw in an "Instant Game Over If You Get Caught" level just to mix it up a bit.

The co-op was a lot easier in that respect - it would only send you back to the last save point. Equally the campaign (of which I played the first few minutes) did something similar - on the 'Rookie' setting at least!

Finished Metal Gear Solid 4 twice this past week. I can't believe how long some of the cutscenes went on, especially the last one. wacko.gif

Now making my way through the God of War Collection. So far it's pretty good.

MGS4 was incredible. As was the God of war series (particularly 3).

Hayleigh traded Modern Warfare 2 for me at CEX and got 21 for it (2 less than I paid brand new!) and picked up Battlefield bad company 2. Looking forward to getting into that; the online sure bests the shit out of MW2, I know that fir sure.

Is EarthBound as great as everyone says?


It's good, but I think the nostalgia factor is what ramps it up to greatness in some peoples minds. The gameplay is standard a turn based affair but it's the distinct plot, graphics and setting that make it stand out. It's worth putting at least a few hours into if only because it's such a unique RPG.
A translation for Mother 3 (aka Earthbound 2) can be found here. You'll need a rom to patch, but this semi-sequel (name only, not plot continuation)improves almost all aspects of the game.
Plus as a minor bonus, once you've played these two you'll finally know who Ness and Lucas are in Smash Bros. wink.gif

Downloaded, thanks. I understand that Mother 3 is a "sequel" to EarthBound in the way that Pokemon Ruby is a "sequel" to Pokemon Gold - same world, same mechanics, but otherwise completely different.

I know Mother was on the NES, but NES RPGs are very simplistic so I think I'll give that one a miss. Everyone only seems to talk about 2 and 3 anyway.

I really enjoyed Splinter Cell Conviction, but sadly it's too easy (I played it on Realistic right from the start and it was still piss easy), and too short.
