Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Just looked up who made MW3........Infinity Ward back in town!!


So in theory, all the stupid ideas Treyarch put into BO will not be in MW3!!(infinate spawning is just one of their many blunders)



Pre-ordered

Poorly at the mo, trying to get used to the controls, but will persevere. Think I'll stick to the PS3 for MW3 and get BF3 for the PC.
Good call!!

You have till November to get good.........then i will kick your ass!!!

Well, quite a few staff from Infinity have left, so I'm still looking forward to the game, but with caution.

Plus, I quite like the infinite spawning. It pushes you to reach yet another savepoint instead of simply hiding and taking them out once they reach the crosshair you have not moved in minutes..

on one of the missions, while skyping. I let a suspect go. The mission restarts, but the suspect is detected as already gone. So you get mission failed.. over and over and over and over and..

Also, I expected everyone to talk like this

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Does anyone know what's up with subduing criminals without having to kill them?

RDR had the opton to lazo people, so Iwas expecting some sort of "drop your gone " possibilities on the side missions.



I have to go: " I'm the law bi4tch! " bam!. headshot

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Ouchboy,

To subdue them when chasing them, push L2 to go into aim mode, and make sure the target reticule (?) stays on them...it begins to fill up like a clock, and when it reaches full, Cole shoots a warning shot into the air, and the suspects $hits it and stops. You can only do this if he shoots at you first / you already have your weapon drawn, otherwise you'll need to chase and tackle him.

Out of interest, what is this bug? I am getting near the end (have solved Black Dahlia and Black Caesar) and have left people in rooms without charging them, but never had a mission failed or anything.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Just started LA Noire last night. I'm a terrible driver .

Interesting so far, but not really into the meat of the thing yet.

Ordered from Amazon BTW for 29ish, 4 p&p, bringing total cost to ~34. At current rates this is ~Sfr 50.-. Game retails in CH for ~Sfr 90.-

NB no import duty either

But this is only for some missions, there are side quests where gangs are shooting at ya, I keep the reticle on them but nothing happens, so i just shoot. i'll be more patient I guess

If the main suspect flees on " marriage made in heaven" for example, the scene will restart infront of the house, but the suspect will still be considered as a gone, so it will just cycle forever on case failed. I had to restart the campaign. Luckily I wasn't that far ahead that I couldn't remake everything in like 10 min.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Ah, right, that is a PITA Ouchboy.

Also, yes, if you are in a firefight, you cannot subdue people, you just have to put a slug between their eyes.

@Paddy - The driving is initially tough, but as your cars improve, it does get easier, cornering is always a bit of a coin toss though, but it is in real life for me anyway ;-) I nearly always let my partner drive - I have plenty of spare intuition points built up, so don't need to do the side missions yet.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Finished Arkham Asylum on Normal last night, really, really enjoyed the game. I found the final Joker fight the easiest boss-fight of all, funnily enough (even though the twin Titans plus henchmen just before took several attempts). Thing is, I'm only at 84% completion, but have solved all the riddles and the spirit of Arkham etc. How do I get the rest? By doing the challenges?
Speaking of which, how do people get such insanely high scores on the beat-em-up challenges, or finish the stealth ones so fast?

I think that is what is most dissapointing for people who played Red Dead Redemption, of course you would look weird tying down gangsters in the 1940's.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Okay, I'm new to the PS3 world so please be nice. (or try to be )

I setup the new PS3 yesterday. Created an online ID, everything went fine.
I can login from the website as well, so I know the account information is all good.

Only one problem. When I try to access the Playstation store from the PS3, it says the service is not available.

Is there a problem going on ? I thought the PSN was up and running again. Or is there something else I should setup.

Thanks for your help.

It's still down for us as far as I can tell. I can't access the store either. Apparently it was meant to be back up on the 24th...

Ah, so. I thought it was just me.
I have been trying since early this morning to get into the store and try out something.

Thanks a lot for the info.

Back to the xbox for now then.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

the online gaming works fine for me, that is all that matters for my addiction

I do not know about the store, but I've never used it before.

Has anyone already tried to download the free games that sony is supposed to give as a compensation for the outage?
