Perks of being a Manager, you get the inside scopp on kool stuff like this.
prolly has to be a certain company. I did an offer like that at babbages (gamestop) for trading in dvd's to get some free ps2 games. I was good friends with the manager and was talking to him earlier that day about the deal and asked him about the restrictions on the deal. He told me and i replied, "I have an idea." 20 minutes later I walked in with 7 copies of Ernest Goes to Jail on dvd that I got out of a store's "$3 bin". I didn't even take the dvd's out of the plastic. he laughed SOOO hard. :ha:
Angel: Why wouldn't you like the controls, they're almost identical to Halo!
I had a chance to play for a few wee hours last night, and I have to admit the gameplay is compelling.
Capcom typically doesn't do so well on the storytelling front and Lost Planet is no different; bad voice acting, shallow story lines, pitiful character development . The Campaign mode is a bust...not captivating in any way and unbelievably difficult. What really sells the game is the Multiplayer mode! Multiplayer is fantastic, with gorgeous graphics, very very fun weapons and vehicles, and a sleek HUD. The only downside to all this is the fact that they still haven't gotten the 'pre-game-lobby' idea down too well. There is no game 'party', you actually have to re-join your friends from the main Optimatch screen for each game...a real pain in the axx but can be easier if you co-ordinate with your friends on a Private Chat line. The gameplay 'HUD' interface is stellar....a huge improvement from Gears of War's minimalistic "who am I shooting?" approach.
Multiplayer on this game is really fun if you can get over the fact that you have to constantly re-join your friends. I recommend it for anyone who wants to instantly know how to play well a new game. Like I said, the controls are almost a carbon-copy of Halo. I picked it up and started ranking up, immediately. Thats a different thing too; you NEVER lose rank...so you constantly build higher and higher. Those are great odds for Achievement Points!
So anyhow, this is what I'll be playing for the next few weeks...give it a try! At the very least it's a great distraction until Halo 3 comes out.
I've played the demo, and I've got to say, it looks sweet. But it just doesn't do it for me. I can't quite place my finger on it. Maybe its the way the camera moves before you actually turn, or the fact that it's 3rd person not 1st, or how I couldn't get the VS to transform... Anywho, still looks like a great game over all.
