i bought this game over the weekend and had a quick go - very very dissapointed with it..
Like I said, I hated the demo. I decided to get it with a friend of mine because it was on sale (17.99 pounds) and we knew that we were only gonna play it in co-op, so we basically split the price. We had more fun that we thought we would. Alcohol may have helped.

I recommended it, but clearly stated that co-op was necessary for it to be fun and made the game. It was not a glowing recommendation by any means, I had some reservations.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Oops. Nevermind.

Anyway, you didn't like Infamous? I've only heard good things about it. How far did you play? I heard it gets really fun once you start getting more powers.

Me too. Too bad its not on the 360. I would have loved to check out the demo atleast.

I downloaded the RE demo over XBL, and well...it didnt do it for me either. But then again, that might have to do with the fact that im fairly new to FPS on consoles.
Which brings me to MK vs DC. Get it if you dont have it already. Its a lot of fun. And so is Halo Wars, especially if you are a fan of the storyline.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

I played the infamous demo and definitely liked it.

i have it in the back of my mind to maybe pick up a copy if i see it at a good price.

edit: oh hang on, chf 5 plus postage for a game you dont like, monkeynut ?? you could buy yourself a few tasty bananas for that kind of money

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Anyone playing Battlefield 1943? It's only a $15 purchase on the US (free demo too) Playstation Store.

As it is team/squad based it would be great to see who else on EF is playing.

I feel you there. I got CoD in German and could not play it for a year until I understood the complicated single player scenario instructions and why the game was always yelling "Los! Los!" at me.

For what it's worth besides the tutorial, the game does not really talk at you as it is multiplayer only. Take/hold capture points, shoot the enemy players...not much for the game to tell you.

Yeah true.. but I still would like a english version. What I may try is to change my credit card address to my UK address and see if that works.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Also, the demo only lasted 1 day! I was going to play it again last night but the trial expired!!

PS3 is starting to annoy me. They complain that they're not making enough cash and then the make it so hard to buy a bloody game from their store!! Surely they must know that people travel to countries that do not speak their own language. So why on earth do they not make allowances to change the language to whatever you want?? just crazy!!

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

yeah would be better if all games were multilingual or at least clearly displayed on the case or on the psn which languages are supported.

Actually the demo gives you only 30 minutes of playtime. I guess they thought it was better to give you a fully featured demo, but time-limit it. Somehow I got a lot more than 30 minutes out of the demo, but perhaps their servers were messed up on the first few days after it was released.

Having moved to Switzerland has really opened my eyes about how regional movies and video games are. I knew DVDs were region-encoded, but the implications never really occurred to me until I tried to play a US DVD in my Swiss PS3 or a Swiss Wii game in my US Wii.

I just bought it
Find it a little hard though. I just dont understand how people can shoot me so quickly without a mouse. I find it really hard to aim using the PS3 controller.

Age of Booty is a good strategy game. My wife will even play it with me once in a while.

There is a good joke in there somewhere....

I just made a thread about lending Ps3 games. Though I'd advertise it here to:

Thanks,

Nazi zombies, all Nazi signs, and the flame thrower (?) were removed from the German version. Go figure...
