motorstorm apocolaypse demo is back up on the eu psn store.

Ahh! Thanks for pointing this out, i'd been looking for this. Tried it last night and it was alright. It's pretty (and the 3D was pretty good), but I'm not sure.

It felt like motorstorm- but the vehicles seemed to take a bit more damage before crashing. The "natural disaster" style stuff in the demo was underwhelming in comparison to Split/Second, and half of the time the event resulted in me slamming into a wall because the camera moves to show you what happens (it's optional, but i kept hitting it).

This week was quite unappealing. I'm still save scumming my way through that first Sonic game. (Sonic seems to move slow compared to modern games. Also, does this game have no continues?)

I beleive it did not have any continues and only extra lives to earn. Also, I dont remember it having a save feature so you had to play through in one sitting. I could be wrong on that though. It was 20 years ago after all!

Tyler, I was just messing with you to see how long it would take you to see my sig.  Dont get your panties in a wad.

I was talking about the re-relase for PSN. The one on PSN doesnt seem to have a continue feature but does have a save/load you can use. Unfortunately it seems you have to go bak to the main menu by death or quitting in order to load. So bascially I'm just saving every 20 steps.

yeah i tore through sonic 1 when it was free for psn+. I got every trophy but beat under an hour the first nite ;) just spam the saves so that you can retry the bonus missions if you fail to get chaos emeralds and save every level so if you die you can restart it. not hard at all with the new save feature. can't wait to do sonic 2 soon.

oh and i did the beta for red faction battlegrounds and i deleted it after 10 minutes. seemed like a very unpolished atari game that was just made to cross promote the new game. it should be free within a few months if its worth it even. but to each their own. i just beat yakuza 4 60+ hours and i loved every minute of it, but i hear people hate that game.

Yeah I did not even bother to see if I should have gotten a RFB unlock or not after hearing like 3 or 4 different podcasts shit all over it. People keep saying its so bad that its a detriment to the new RF game coming out because people will associate RF with crap now.

Well, I'm playing Red Faction II on my PS3 right now and it's getting me excited for Rf: Armageddon (I know they are different genres but it's still the same universe), so screw Battlegrounds!

It would be ridiculous to think Battlegrounds affects any part of Armageddon since it was made by a completely different developer with a completely different style of gameplay. It's not that bad, though not great either. It's an oddly empty game with no real single-player mode and poor online multiplayer support.

You saying you think the general consumer is intelligent and educated enough to even know different developers made the two different games? Face it people are stupid and judge things by brand names.

No, the average person has no clue Battlegrounds even exists (like Dead Space Ignition didn't affect Dead Space 2 at all). Do you have a link to people swearing off Armageddon or are the people that you were referring to hypothetical?

It was Rebel FM. They were talking about how they think the game was put out as early marketing for the next RF. They went on to say they think its horrible to put out such a bad game close to its release. I personally concur.

Having listened to the segment, they didn't seem to come off as hostile as you made them out to be since it came off as a throwaway statement.

You have a real tendency to disregard any opinion that is not your own.

I don't disregard them. I just call it like it is when it's a dumb thing to say, especially when it's a random podcast that has lots of weird, obtuse opinions like that. Am I supposed to blindly take Anthony's opinion as fact, which is how you portrayed it at first?

I've heard plenty of people say a demo/prequel severely damages a game's appeal and the game sells well anyway because the majority of the people buying don't pay attention to the internet hype/hate at all. To say that Battlegrounds will make people completely forget about Guerilla and associate Red Faction with crap when Armageddon comes out is hyperbole that ignores the reality that we live in where things available on XBL and PSN don't reach the majority of the audience out there.

Does anyone here know anything about Dungeon Hunter: Alliance? I did a quick search on CAG and didn't see anything, really. Looks like a typical action RPG loot game. How does it compare to something like Champions of Norrath or Baldur's Gate: DA? My wife and I really enjoyed those.

It's not really an update week for PS+, so there's nothing major coming out this week besides the Killzone 3 map pack.

Thanks. I had read their propoganda/articles about it, was just looking for CAGs' take on the game based on what they knew about the developer and if anyone had tried it anywhere. Looks pretty good, but I'll wait for at least a few reviews just to make sure it's not broken somehow (i.e. very buggy or something).
