Yeah I went to the midnight release.

And it beats the pants off even the first. It rocks with a capital R.

This was the first time I have per-ordered a game since.... Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow on Xbox :lol: .

Well I am not that far into it but I like Death more already. As far as the story it is all about helping War out, same stuff as the first game as far as what you do to progress it (find certain people and items and things). The story is pretty much an extension of the first meaning that it builds onto it and adds to the story of the first game and gives the universe from the first game more lore to its history.

The fighting is smoother, there are more RPG elements like choosing your armor and weapons and picking up those items as loot from fallen enemies or chests and leveling up. Updated graphics are a given.

It's essential if you liked the first.

Also after Snatcher I want to finally give Policenauts a go. Just need to find a good way to play it.


Good lad. Snatcher is one of the best adventure games I've ever played and Policenauts is great too. If you get stuck, send me a PM and I'll help with emulator settings etc.


I've pretty much got Snatcher ready to go now so I'm fine with that.

I have a problem with Policenauts where the screen looks really grainy. I've seen screenshots of the game where it is really clear and the drawings look beautiful.

I plan to play these through my laptop hooked up to my TV through HDMI with a 360 controller.

Right, let me know your PlayStation emulator config via PM and let's sort it.

Using Fusion with a 360 controller. Couldn't shoot in any corners with the analog but feels great with the D-pad. No problem shooting so far in the shooting range or the part with the robot spiders.

That's annoying because I used the same one and still had that problem. I used to use Gens but when I switched to Fusion the problem went away. Only thing is when I tried Fusion the last time I wanted to play Snatcher, it returned..

Started Darksiders 2.
While the gameplay feels pretty obviously improved, I'm just not feeling the story/setting so far. The original game had such a cool "ruined Earth" thing going for it, all post-apocalyptic and whatnot, but this one just feels like I'm wandering through something in World of Warcraft. The environments are generally very nice-looking so far, but they feel kind of boring and "seen it before". And all of the dialogue and characters thus far, though generally well-written, suffer a likewise bland vibe.
I know there's a lot more to see in the game past the initial areas, but so far it just hasn't hooked me like the first did.
Death is certainly a cooler protagonist though.

I think it feels more like Jak and Daxter or Beyond Good and Evil then World of Warcraft. Once you reach the tree of Life though...lets just say things change.

and yea you get to go to earth
