This glitch crap again? Post to see post. I may as well add if anybody didn't get this e-mail Amazon is gonna have a sale tomorrow starting midnight Pacific.

Customers who have purchased or shown an interest in video games might like to know that on Tuesday, June 26, 2012, the Amazon.com Gold Box will feature video game products for gamers all day long.Dracula68

Thanks for that but might not be in for like half the day since I'm heading out quite early.

Played a bit more of Max Payne 3, it's a must get if you don't already have it.

I didn't mean it in a bad way. >_> Maybe I'll try it out sometime after I exchange this blurry tv I just got.

Actually, I'm not a big fan of "the shooters era" myself, but I have to tell you, all the shooting's exactly the reason MP3 is fun. I usually don't give out shooter recommendations, so trust me on this one, you're gonna like it.

Is it a good starting point for someone who's never played a Max Payne game?

I haven't gotten really deep into the game yet, but so far you can get the big idea, and you won't feel lost at all as it is a completely different story. HOWEVER, I would strongly advise playing the first games, though they may be old, they are extremely enjoyable.

But if you can't get around to doing so, I would at least suggest reading this article which tells you what happened in the first two games.

I hope that answered your question.

EDIT: Well this is new.(Check the unread posts number)

Yea, that's a glitch that happens quite too often on the forums, mainly with the larger sized threads.

I already got the gist of what's happened (the episode of Escape From Mount Stupid GameSpot did on the series covered that well), but... heck, that's never stopped me from playing a series in order before. I'll just get a hold of the first two at some point.

What is your favorite stage thus far? My favorite was Stage 4 with Stage 3 a close second. Have you ever had a Space cake? :P

So that's a good one?

I take it you're referring to Catherine. My answer is yes. A great puzzle game that has a good story; one that is unique to videogames. The game appears to have some replay value. Looks like I would be going back and forth between Lollipop Chainsaw and Catherine to unlock extra stuff.

Yeah. I've heard similar things about it. Sounds cool.

DOA 5 is going to be another DOA typical game, just with a tweak or two, a new character or two. I'm going to buy it on day one, regardless. I need new fighters to play, besides Street Fighter, which I've been burned out by lately.

#320 Posted by Metamania (12015 posts) -

Today, I learned that Amazon shipped off my order of the entire Linkin Park discography, including the new album, with the last two Offspring records (the one that's out a long while and the one that came out today, as of this writing). All of it should be in on Friday...yay!

For some reason Spec Ops The Line embargo break got Toto's Hold the Line stuck in my head now.

Anybody get any good deals on Amazon? Going by the current clue I am thinking Witcher 2 is next and if it is 20 or less I am all over it. Got an hour and 46 min to kill and not forget to check back though.

They are awesome for deals and awesome return service. Hell, they ship something back out immediately where I noticed other web siters need you to first send the damaged item back before they will ship anything.

Doesn't seem like "just a tweal or two", I mean...THEY DECREASED THE JIGGLING PHYSICS!

But in all seriousness, they seem to have been putting a lot of work into it, ofcourse it's still DoA, but seems like it's going to offer something new to the franchise.

Just finished Far Cry, the game was interesting, and I'm sure if I had played it at the time, it would've seemed a lot better.

I just watched Kevin VanOrd's review of Amazing Spiderman. Looks tempting to buy...

Yeah I was slated to get it as a rental but I still have Lego BM 2 at home so no chance now. Gotta find another new release to rent before Darksiders II.

I haven't beaten it yet. Last I remember, I received a boomerang-like weapon and was using it for a puzzle.

Okay. If you're interested, that will probably be up at the end of the week. I just want to make sure everything is here to make sure it's an accurate listing and I don't have to go back and edit stuff.

You should really continue playing Darksiders as it is a blast and the ending will just blow your mind!

My course load next year:

Fall 2012:
ITM700 - Information Technology and Strategic Management
ITM601 - Advanced Business Process Models
GEO106 - Geography of Everyday Life

Winter 2013:
ITM800 - Applied Feasibility Analysis
POG110 - Canadian Politics
ENT526 - Entrepreneurial Behaviour and Strategy

--

Looks like staying an extra year might pay off. Six courses left before graduation and on top of that, only the Advanced Business Process Models one will be a bit tough. The ITM700/800 course will be hard but a different kind of hard, not material wise but meeting with your client and company on a weekly/bi-weekly/monthly basis.

Bwahaha, only six courses then I graduate! Then I find full-time work, yay.

Right now, though, I've been trying to figure out a way to get money faster in Resident Evil 5. I want to upgrade all of my weapons and get infinite ammo as fast as possible...

My personal anticipation: If everything goes well, and the sequel sells at least as much the first game, there will be a story(sequel) for each horseman, or at least another one for the remaining two(Fury and Strife), and then in the last game it will pick up where Darksiders left off, which in my opinion is great, as you get to know more about each and every one of them, also about the Darksiders universe. What do you think?
