Just curious if anyone noticed this? I haven't had a chance to look through the thread so forgive me if someone else has posted. But this might be really good if anyone has Amazon credit.

Man, I really wanted to like and get the Raven but I can't even get past the tutorial section of the demo because it won't let me do what it's telling me to do.  If it was $5 total instead of $7.50 I would probably still have picked it up and given it another go later on but oh well.

Yeah I jumped on the Raven because I had some money in my US account and it's not available over here in Australia so I figured it was now or never. I'm a little disappointed. I like the story and the setting - I love the characters too - but the controls have to be the worst in the history of the point-and-click genre. I don't know how they could have messed this up so badly and not fixed it prior to the release. There are even some sections where you basically are walking around in a pitch dark train trying to find the few things that you can interact with, but trying to find those things are impossible, hell half the time it's impossible for me to choose the one thing I want to interact with out of the three things on screen as I need to somehow control the characters neck to look at an object but not control their feet so that they don't walk away from it, but it's all tied to the left analog stick so I just have to hope and pray I get it right. It makes an already slow game very tedious.

 

I don't know how they stuffed it up as a lot of love seems to have gone into the game but they really did stuff up. And it's crazy because this is a genre that's as old as they come. All they had to do was look back on 30 years of point-and-click games and their controls and just copy-and-paste. I know there's not a lot of traditional examples for the consoles but the Monkey Island remakes had amazing controls. Sigh. It doesn't help matters that there's basically no tutorial for telling you how to interact with objects in your inventory (that system is cumbersome too). I still haven't made it through all of the first episode and I know it's going to be quite the slog but I'll get through it cause I'm actually interested in the story and where it'll go.

 

Sorry about this rant.

is motocross any good? i have to move my 360 to connect to internet and just wondering if its worth it. or if i can get some quick achievements so close to 20k

If you like Motocross and you like Madness then this is the game for you.

 

Actually it's a fairly fun game and is a good one to have a quick play at. If you have any kids in your life it's a good game to play with them too.

 

Again I'm not sure how far you have to move your Xbox to connect to the internet. If it's not much of a hassle I'd do it to get a free game. But then I'm a CAG - I fought in the Oman Wars man just to get a few free games and I'd gladly do it again!

Are they seriously going to put the Battlefield 4 DLC on sale and NOT the actual game too? LMAO! FAIL.

Battlefield 4 is the ultimate fail to begin with - another disaster brought to you by the fine people at EA
