So, it's out tomorrow in the US (24th) and here in the UK 3 days later!

I hope i can afford it, what with me having to move house. Gonna have to ask the misses if it's alright. XD.png

If not, then i'll rent it and see if i really like it and buy it afterwards when i can afford it.

Fuck. It comes out tomorrow and I am terribly tempted to purchase it. I probably won't, but I could.

Maybe I'll go to Blockbuster at lunch and see if I can rent a copy.

it's getting the kind of reviews i thought it would get... 7's and 8's... 3/5's... meaning, i think i won't tear my hair out for passing on it right now... no rush... as a matter of fact, stoic reminded me that i need to rent naughty bear soon... this game can wait a while longer...

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

You can't rely on reviews to help you decide on what game to buy these days... Shit games get good ratings because they're "better than expect", and decent, really polished games get bad ratings because they're "not enough" compared to a similar game, or compared to the hype.
GTAIV is a good example of a game that got over-hyped, 9/10's and 10/10's, but turned out to have so much less content than previous GTA games.


I normally make a decision based on pictures and trailers. Yeah i know trailers are designed to draw you in, and make you want it, but i can normally tell a good game from a bad one from pics and trailers. I guess it's the long term experience of buying decent and fail games...

Anyway, back on subject. I think Mafia 2 will have a really gripping story, but i think the fillers, like side missions and all will be lacking in enjoyment, or will get boring quickly. Which is fine if you're like me and really enjoy gritty gangster flicks and games. Because this game IS about the main story.

The only reason i think the side missions will be boring is because it's all been done before in GTA and is already old. i can't see them doing anything too different to GTA which will make me want to do it over and over again.

i was basing my decision on the demo... i predicted these scores from the demo alone... i am not saying it isn't any good but, the reviews just furthered my belief in how i saw the game myself... and that was a fun mafia story with little in-between...

i still plan on playing it one day though because, i too enjoy a good mafia story biggrin.gif...

Ah right. Yeah i didn't think that much of the demo after a couple of plays. But that's because it's pretty small and repeatative. I'm sure the full game will be far more satisfying.

XBL Gamertag: your mother...
PSN Name: artistadam
Xfire Identity: i said your mother!!



i just read some reviews and i will read some more later tonight when i get home and can actually read the IGN's, the joystick's, the destructoid's and such... but, i keep getting the same vibe and that's a "gorgeous" empty sandbox game with a decent story... driving and shooting mechanics that work but, will frustrate the hell out of you in other places... you can buy food and fill up your car with gas but, what's the purpose to all of that? nothing... you can buy suits and guns but, they're more of essentials on your way to missions rather than something to do when messing around...

the game seems to really push you into missions... every chapter starts out with you doing a mission and the environment never changes until that said chapter is complete... if the chapter starts out with rain in the afternoon, it will continue to rain without a sunset until your done... most missions are initiate from phone calls... and there's nothing to encourage you to explore the city... trying to find 50 playboy magazines just isn't enough to keep you exploring... there's no hidden weapons...

and that's what i've gathered so far... i'll read more into later but, i am feeling much better about passing on this... i just can't afford to buy every game i see this generation... with the PS2, i lived at home mostly and had funds to spend on whatever i wanted... which had me ending up with about 50 games and only about a dozen that were worth still playing... a ton of wasted money... this generation i have been extremely picky and it's because i can't afford to buy a new game every month because i own my own house... so far, mercenaries 2 has been my only bad purchase, which i traded in immediately for little big planet... and i think i'd rather just save my money until new vegas comes out...

maybe i might rent this game in the future... they say it's only about 12 hours long, which translates to about 16 hours for me biggrin.gif... and that even seems short for a sandbox game...

I'll trade you the Vegas pack for your pack.
Or maybe even the war hero pack, which I don't really want to give up but desperate times call for desperate measures.
360 Version.
I won't have my copy until Saturday...but still, I mean if you can go without using your code until then.
I just really want the Rebel pack haha.

Wow...Craigslist Ad anyone?

I'm totally on the same page as b0nes and Dupz. I'll swing by Blockbuster today and if they have it, cool, I'll rent it. If not, no worries.

Besides, if it sucks, I'll probably be able to pick it up on the cheap in a month or so.

Even if you're not too keen on the game, you gotta love this lamp:
