I often don't post this guy, but he nails so many good points. Against the butthurt, and for the butthurt. A worthy watch.


Good to see that Joey Fatone is finally shedding some of his post N'Sync weight.

Smh, kids today. Satisfied with choppy frame rate, muddy graphics, horrible storylines(no one at Ninja Theory had anything to do with writing the story for Heavenly Sword or Enslaved) and watered down game play that consists of jumping in the air and mashing the win button. There's several videos of the final boss fight(not going to spoil anything,even for this game) where even the final boss loses interest in the game and just wanders around aimlessly.
Oh well, guess I'll leave you with Fuck YOOOOOOUUUUUU!

Do you punch your mom in the face when she tries to make you eat vegetables?

Also aren't video games suppose to be, well, you know, "played"? And not just judged by videos and that being fuel to the fire to just randomly insult people? If you answered no to the last two questions then maybe gamefaqs is more your speed on gaming forums.

Also, can we get this thread cleaned up? If you guys want to argue about why DmC is awful, make a new thread about it and I'll be happy to pay a visit. It doesn't need to be in Amazon Warehouse Deals.

Exactly. As a wild example of the likely scenarios in the different time periods for a simple question:

"Hi guys, I cant defeat the final boss. Any tips?"

Alucard411: Sure, try using x gun when he's not attacking and then switch to y gun as soon as he's about to attack.


xXx_D3ATHBRING3R_xXx: You suck. Lolz.



To keep this on topic, DmC for $40ish is decent. If your not a big fan of hack-n-slash games, wait till it drops further. It's a fun game, but pretty short.

So what you're saying is, GameFAQs dialogue and DMC dialogue devolved at a similar rate?

I agree, I thought I had finally avoided DmC debating and it wound up here for an extended spell. Zoinks.

If you're using Firefox, merely download the add on for it (from the Firefox menu) called Update Scanner. It can check the specific page you're looking for on warehouse for any deals within every 5 minutes and alert you if something has changed or popped up.

Man, a lot of 3DS stuff is/went up. Bumping thread to show additions to my edited post.

Managed to grab NSMB 2 and Super Mario 3D Land for cheap. Think I missed a Virtue's Last Reward for $27 though..

I fail to see your point. Tell me, which devil may cry had a good story? The only one that actually made sense was DmC.

Muddy graphics? Not really. It was pretty clean and the particle effects were really nice.

Choppy frame rate? Nope didn't experience this in the slightest when I played. Very smooth all throughout the game.

The only complaint I had when playing was that it felt like I was doing more platforming rather than fighting.


Sorry to beat a dead horse here, just wanted to clarify my rant.
No Devil May Cry ever had a compelling story, but this one I found especially distasteful(and yes, I've played it). The basic story as a whole may have had something going for it, even if it is a rewrite of a Futurama episode, but the dialog was so damn bad imo. Of course, others might enjoy it, I understand that, but it's as if Taneem felt that by filling it with as much profanity as possible he'd have a guaranteed hit on his hands.
The graphics weren't as crisp and fluid as they could have been. I found the levels to be fairly blah throughout.
As for choppy frame rate, I may have misspoke, or not been very clear. By making it 30fps the animation seemed choppy to me. I've seen videos of the pc version running at 60fps,and the animation on that is very nice. At 30fps you can really tell the difference.
The main complaint I've had about it is the fact that the combat has been dumbed down so much from all the previous games, there really was no challenge for me. Coming from a series that's known for its stylish combo system and fluid combat, this just really left a bad taste in my mouth. I've said a few times at srk that it's a halfway decent game in its own right, but as a DmC game it falls far short. Most of the games staunchest defenders say the original games were too hard to play, and they're happy things are less complicated. Instead of gamers stepping their game up, games are required to become easier to play. A game like Ninja Gaiden Black would never be made in today's gaming climate. I can't stand the game for that and the trend it represents.
Again, sorry for getting off track, just wanted to state that I wasn't just trolling, I do have points behind it.

I am still thinking about $20 vita deal for cod bundle in eBay. I see my tracking number, and it is delivered to the us already. Hopefully, it is not a scam....although it is true

Anyone had experience ordering PC parts from AWD?

Thinking about ordering my entire PC build through them so i can save about $200, but kinda iffy about buying CPU's / GPU's / motherboard / etc. through them.


If they are covered by manufacturer warranty (i dont know) it might be okay. For me no warranty = no buy. I'd still pass on short warranties depending on the part.

I bought one for 38.99 on the 19th of january
on the 20th his account was removed from ebay.
couple days later tracking info appeared but wont show anything on ebay.
Filed a dispute, got my money back. searching it on chinapost tracking shows that it's been in customs being opened up since the 24th.
It did say it would take from Feb 2nd to the 25th to ship

So... tl;dr
Got my money back, possibly getting a free CoD Vita bundle?

I ordered some too good to be true item off ebay a few months ago. The seller sent me a trk #, but his account was also closed and ebay contacted me to tell me to file a dispute, so I did and got my money back. Well, I kept up on the tracking # anyway and to my surprise, it arrived at my post office (I missed the delivery, so I had to go pick it up). However, upon receiving my package and opening it, I found all that was inside was a sealed copy of Windows 98, lol, which is defintely not what I ordered, so yeah, I wish you good luck, but I doubt there is a Vita in that package. Would be an amazing deal if I am wrong though!

That sounds amazing! (have a friend that would actually want a copy of windows 98)
Whether or not I get a vita, I'm sure to enjoy unboxing my package:bouncy:

Dark Souls for $12.68, worth it? I kind of suck at video games, but that game keeps catching my attention for some reason. I like the setting it's in and the boss battles look awesome.. I just don't want to not be able to beat it at all. (I'd grab Dragons Dogma instead, but I'm waiting for the new version)

Dark Souls isn't exactly skill intensive; it's more a test of patience and pattern learning. The enemies are slow enough that if you memorize their attacks, you can put 'em down real quick.

Of course, if you're having difficulty, you can always summon people to help you out. There's always plenty of people willing to help!

Get it! One of the best games this gen in my opinion. The challenge is there, but only until you learn the patterns and get a feel for the area and enemy. If a part is too difficult, you can always summon a computer or human player to help you through. I wouldn't worry about not being good enough to beat it, I would worry about being patient enough.

Prepare to die very often, though.

if you like old school japanese games get this. yes its hard but once you beat a big ass boss its rewarding as hell. I love how the game looks as well
