Lol. Have any of us nerdy gamers not seen the Avengers yet?


I haven't. Nobody wants to go with me or they already went the ultra-classy route of watching it online.

Tempted to get the DJ Hero 2 DLC, partly because I'll get the rebate back, but there's just not enough content there.

I haven't seen it yet either. The whole "real life/no money" thing has kept me so far but I hope to see it soon.

Also, OP looks beautiful now ReddJoey!

The OP does look better, nice job!:applause:

Don't know if it applies specifically to this thread or not, but the original Toy Soldiers has dropped to 400 MSP. Naturally... a couple weeks after i finally break down and buy it, of course...

Still shows as 800 MSP. Not that it matters to me. I bought the game for 1200 MSP a couple of months ago.

Both have the same critic score (81) on metacritic. The second game has a higher user score though, so that points to it being a better game. I've had both games for a while now but haven't had a chance to play either, so I can't give an opinion.

Robomodo's Unreal Engine-powered remake Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD will drop in on Xbox Live and PSN this June, Tony Hawk himself has revealed. He took to Twitter to announce the launch window, as he is wont to do.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD is a remake featuring select levels from the first two games, which originally debuted on the PSOne. Tony has said that, depending on the HD remake's reception, we could see other past levels added – Hawk even envisions Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD as a platform for completely new content.

I remember enjoying Pro Skater 2 on the the Dreamcast so I'm somewhat excited that it's coming soon.

ONE ONE ONE ONE ONE ONE ONE ONE!!!!!!!1!!!1!!!

1 has 14 campaign levels, then a campaign+ with the same 14 levels but played from the German side. They're basically brand new levels because the gameplay and strategies from level to level are extremely different. So basically 28 levels in Toy Soldiers 1, compared to 13 in Toy Soldiers 2.

Toy Soldiers 2 is far easier. They added an arguably overpowered weapon that can destroy tanks, because tanks were a little bit overpowered in 1. There's also a rewind feature in 2 that lets you back track to any wave, in case you make a major mistake and don't feel like restarting the whole level (nothing like this in 1). They also added what basically amounts to killstreak rewards, such as AC-130 and airstrikes, which are fun but still contribute to making the game easier. There are also 6 minigames, and survival and versus maps that, unfortunately, in my opinion are irrelevant.

More positively, Toy Soldiers 2 added the ability to play the whole game co-op (local only, I believe). You can also zoom while using your turrets in 2, which is a really nice addition.

Toy Soldiers 2 is by no means a bad game. I really enjoyed my time with it. But it was a huge letdown to me after how amazing I found Toy Soldiers 1 to be.

Huh.

Then it's not actually a new price drop, because I purchased it two weeks ago at 800 MSP. I know this, because I haven't had over 840 MSP's available for some time and am at 40 at the moment.

My bad though. I bought it two weeks ago at a price, then saw a price drop today. I assumed it was actually new.

Re: the original vs Cold War, I'm all about the original because of the WWI theme (WWI, not WWII). WWI largely was tower defense anyways... the flares goes up, the bugle sounds, the soldiers go over the top in waves... the theme, music, sounds, just makes it a refreshing game compared to the glut of modern combat games, WWII themes, etc.

It's possible that you saw it on the dashboard as a price drop labeled as "Save 400". That's how they label them now, and it's caused lots of confusion on this thread already.

I agree with Primis that the enitire setting of Toy Soldiers works for the game more than Toy Soldiers:Cold War. I also second everything that tylerh1701 wrote in his post declaring the original the superior choice. I don't know how you could not be let down with the sequel after playing the first. I could not have put my own opinion any better.:applause:

That's one of the worst parts of the metro game marketplace along with the weird way they sort new releases. Just tell people what the new price is, not how much it dropped.

I'm looking forward to it as well, as it's really the only sports series I got into (well, up to THPS 4. I stopped caring after that). I just hope the cheat codes & such return, plus maybe some of those guest characters (like Spiderman in 2 & Wolverine and Darth Maul in 3).

I remember one of the things i loved so much about Tony Hawk Pro Skater was the soundtrack, so many groups i had never heard of before.

Either way, i'm hyped for it. That game was probably the most played game on my PS1 until i learned about how awesome RPG's and SRPG's were.

Toy Soldiers 1 is the better of the two games.

I think they are both worth owning, though.

While I wouldn't go that far, the dashboard definitely feels like it's half-finished and needs another big update to fix all of the small issues that are noticeable through extended use. It probably isn't helped by the hardware being seven years old, so I would hope the next system is fast as hell and more durable over the long haul.
