Does anyone else think VF2 is impossibly hard? I remember when i was about 10 and a local arcade got it. I probably spent 1000$ in quarters just on that game. I never ONCE got passed stage 5 (Lion). I tried CONSTANTLY. I was practically traumatized. I played it so much it eventuelly overheated and broke. I hadn't played since then. So here i am, years later, thinking this is it. It's on XBL. I'm going to have my revenge for the years of torture this game gave me. I get to stage 5, and i STILL can't fucking beat him. I hate my life. This game owns me.

If anyone is actually considering Deadliest Warrior, a few stores on amazon are fulfilling Amazon's orders fr $6.99. So you can get the first game AND the second game with all DLC for $6.99. Just gota find filler items unless your on prime.

http://www.amazon.co...130259&sr=1-197


I know it's a few days before the Deadliest Warrior is the DOTW, but I just wanted to say thanks again Monsta Mack for posting this deal.....I received my copy this afternoon, and have had quite a good time thus far playing it. Of course it takes a moment to get used to the play, feel of the controls and the LONG loading screens after each match. But with everything that comes with purchasing this disc version, I feel like I really got a bargain when it was $6.99 w/ no tax (I live in AZ) & free 2-day shipping with my month free of "PRIME".
It's gone up a bit now to $9.77, (which is the cheapest at the moment), from one seller where Amazon fulfills the order, but even getting it at that current price is a better deal than next week's offer of buying everything separately.

*Also note if you decide to purchase this disc version, it will load up and divert you back to your library of games, and you have to launch each Deadliest Warrior & Legends from there. (kinda like Namco Museum Arcade for those that have that.) Yes, a pain, but for grabbing it at $6.99 when I did, I can cope with the process of actually starting the game, and then the load times between matches.

*The DLCs for both games are automatically loaded/registered when you start each game. (They are on the disc, no code to input). Also comes with a bonus dvd with 6 full episodes of Deadliest Warrior.

You have it opposite, 360 is the bad version.

As best as I can remember, at release the PS3 version was actually worse than the Xbox version. Most review videos showed comparisons between the PS3 and 360 version, where the 360 version was performing quite a bit better.

EDIT: Here are a few sources from when the game released in March, when the consensus was that the 360 version performed significantly better than the PS3 version, and that the PS3 version of SH3 was almost unplayable due to framerate issues:

Youtube review (6:25 and specifically 8:40)

GameFAQ forums: #1 #2 #3

And lots more that I'm not gonna post.

Soon after release they announced that the PS3 version would be getting a patch to get up to par with the 360 version. I'm not sure if this patch actually improved it beyond the 360 version. But I guess they had announced the 360 would be getting a patch too but that patch was canceled which caused a shitstorm.

I'm not trying to defend this obviously shoddy port or the defend the cancellation of an announced patch. Just want to make sure that people know that the 360 version was quite a bit better than the PS3 version at launch, and the fact that the PS3 version got a patch and the 360 version didn't doesn't mean that the PS3 version is head and shoulders better. More than likely the patch only brought the PS3 version up to par with the 360 version, or it might be a little bit better than the 360 version. The whole story about the canceled 360 patch was overblown a tad.

I'd love to see someone do a comparison between the 360 version and the patched PS3 version. If one exists, I can't seem to find it. Since every website on the internet picked up the "Konami cancels SH patch for 360" story, Google-ing it is producing totally useless results.

How much time do you have?



In short, everything. The walk speed is almost slow motion in Silent Hill 3, the unnecessary borders on key scenes, the fade in and fade out that ruins gameplay, the new dubbing in SH3, the sometimes fog appears and sometimes doesn't, it goes on for awhile.

This month on Xbox Rewards, spend 2,000 MSP on the marketplace this month (any content will do) & get 100 MSP back. & all your pending points will be transferred, no waiting to hit 100 or more.

This. I waited for the Vintage games to go on sale and sure enough, the next big "Sega Games" sale had the lot. I'll wait these ones out too.

Oh I know. And I'll be waiting. :D I couldn't wait when Sonic CD was published though... that was a steal at 400.

I should have known this would happen just after I finally splurge on an 800 point Rock Band 2 export. But as long as the sales toward the end of the month don't totally suck, I could see myself easily spending that much. Not that $1.25 is very compelling...

And for what my two stupid cents are worth, I think Konami has a lot of nerve putting a pile of shit they won't patch on GoD. If I knew who to fire off a scathing email to, I'd consider it.

Pretty much this. Seems every other month or so, they put their games on sale. That's why I waited on the Vintage Collections & gonna wait on the Model 2 fighting games. & that goes for iOS, PSN, & PC as well, Sega does sales on pretty much all digital downloadable media.

Or instead of spending $25 to get $1 back, you could simply do 10 minutes of Bing searches in a week for free and get the same amount of MS points.

Terrible offer.

I'll buy fighting vipers if it goes on sale. Mainly for nostalgia because I am sure I'll hate the game. I never played it outside of the demo kiosk they had set up at places with that and Nights in it.

Or you could do both and come out even further ahead...

Though as I insinuated or at least attempted to previously, if there isn't a boatload of great sales later in the month then this offer is moot.

:cry: My Bing Rewards account was just closed for allegedly violating their terms of service, which happened to occur after I tried to redeem another 400 XBL pts. I've probably earned $50 or so in XBL points via Bing. This episode and dealing with their customer service has been beyond frustrating.

This isn't the correct place to ask, but it's the only thread i post in, so i'm going to do it anyway. I'm about to transfer licenses onto my 360, I was curious as to what needed to be transfered to allow me to play across multiple accounts/also while offline.

XBLA arcade and indie games (and i suppose GoD if I ever had any)

In game DLC

Is that right?

I was planning on buying the Black Ops 2 season pass this month, so it's great if you were about to buy something expensive regardless. I'm at 3000 points already exclusively with bing rewards and should hit the other 1000 before the first dlc drops. I'm also getting the top tier % back based on achievement score, and my birthday's this month so get that small bonus too. I just hope they're aren't some great sales for Xmas right after I drop 4000 points.

Yep. Anything you have on one of your secondary profiles should be license transferred to your main console if you want to play or view it on your main profile. That's how you get those cheap/free games from foreign accounts, like Sanctum of Slime.

Well you probably violated their terms, good job! Nah, I'm kidding. Regardless of you luck, those of us that are fortunate do alot of XBL shopping thanks to Bing Rewards.

Good thing I waited on Guilty Gear. Guess I'll pick that up in a day or two to get 75% of the way there.

sega even went back and patched NiGHTS controls to perfectly match the saturn ones


They released a patch to make it playable? Good men. I'll probably pick up Fighting Vipers myself, since a certain Saturn-owning friend of mine would probably love to play multiplayer.

EDIT: Done on both. I really should get back to studying for finals, though. ( ยด∀`)
