that's good news as the Half life games are my number one reason for wanting steam

 

well Valve = Steam = Half Life . Its kind of hard to have anything Valve/Half Life on your computer that isnt at all linked to Steam in some form or another.

yeah i knew valve is the owner of both steam and half-life the half life games i'm talking about are not available for any of my consoles which is why it's good news they're cheap on steam

 

Do you have a ps3 or xbox 360?

If you have a 360, then you can get the Half Life games via Orange Box. Valve made a port of the games for the 360 some time ago.

Orange Box..... (Half Life 2 episode 1 and 2, portal, and team fortress 2)..... for me they all felt awkward as hell to play on console except for portal. Also HL2 was extremely buggy and TF2 felt incredibly complex. But im thinking hes wanting other games like all the other shooters like the billion counter strike and half life mods.... but thats just me guessing... otherwise the 360 has all the major valve games.

 

 

on a different note... i JUST tonight decided to open up and start up Metal Gear Solid 4... haha... ive had it in wrapping for 2 years and its 4 years old.. Its so old they took off a key function of the game since. MGS online... .they completely took it offline and deleted the option in the menus yet shows up in my manual.. so funny.. Its a good time to start playing it now tho since they just recently added trophy support so yay for that. Altho im no achievement/trophy whore, i just like the little added extras like that.

I heard TF2 runs well on the 360, but is lacking all the new stuff.

 

I never knew that MGO is gone. Checked online and it appears that it was removed recently. I remember playing MGO. It was fun, but slow paced

Yeah, MGO was taken offline back in April or March. Makes me wonder how a lot of these multiplayer games will stand up to time since you won't be able to go back and play them once their servers are gone.

One major reason why i NEVER buy games that are strictly multiplayer... makes it pretty worthless after a few years, especially if they get sequels because they lose support of their prequels, unless they are call of duty and can afford to keep the servers on. The only exception is most pc shooters seem to keep support for a very long time, that and most allow you to create dedicated servers of your own to host. It sucks when games basically get turned off after a period of time and essentially become useless... I tend to like to play older games after a while for nostalgic purposes.

The same goes games with online MMORPG; almost all the MMORPGs are now Free-to-Play including new MMORPGs like SWTOR. The only exception to this is WOW. Sure, WOW is also free-to-play, but it isn't really free-to-play like the other MMORPGs. Free to play users can only level up to level 20, can't chat and trade with other gamers, and can't access the auction - Blizzard basically removed the 14 day trial and made it unlimited.

 

Hat Fortres-- I mean Team Fortress 2 is now Free-to-Play, but they make their money selling in-game items hence the nickname, Hat Fortress 2.

hey guys, feels like it's been a while since I posted in this thread. I finally broke down and signed up for Xbox Live over the weekend since so many of my friends played on that system versus PS3 (I still love my PS3 and I use it more) Anyhow, I am now kicking a$$ and taking names across all gaming systems (Wii included if anyone still plays that, I will kill at Mario Kart)

 

I'm still Polar3000 on PS3, and XBL I'm PolarCola3000, hit me up with a friend request if anyone feels like playing some COD!

Hahah welcome to the community. I feel like its a ghost town when i get on my ps3 and there are like 4 people playing and no one hits me up with messages or anything and i have a good 30 or more friends on my ps3...whereas my xbox its very community oriented and ive probably talked to everyone on my list a few times and i have almost 100.

 

Ive actually been playing my ps3 alittle bit more lately. I decided to start up and play metal gear solid 4 which i just beat and is insanely amazing. A week from now i m getting tekken tag tournament 2 for my ps3 since the game is using ps3 hardware i figured it would be smarter to get it on ps3 this time around. My ps3 was lacking in love so i decided to give it some. Still play my 360 more but i do love the potential my ps3 has. feel free to add me, my name is in my sig area... its the same as ps3.

Would I be a creeper if I said I saw your were playing MGS the other day? Yeah my wife's brothers play COD on PS3, and I perfer the system as a media hub myself (I love Sony electronics, everything is sony, TV, speakers, subwulfer, surround sound system) so I will probably always be playing that, but it will be nice to play with my own brothers for a change on XBL. I did have to go out and buy a flash drive since I dont have a hardrive for my xbox, but I was able to get a 16gig flash for $10 at walmart, so I can't complain about that really. I'm having a hard time getting used to the controller too, feels so bulky and the triggers throw me off. I kept shooting my gun when I wanted to throw a grenade or I would throw the grenade instead to shooting, but I will adjust. What kinda sucks now is I will probably end up getting black ops 2 on both systems.

 

I'll add you up buddy when I get home.

Nope, not a creeper at all, thats what its there for. That game is so good as is the series. I still have to play mgs3 tho, i somehow bypassed that one. Need to get the HD collection methinks, however its still at a high price. The 360 has both mgs2/3 as a set from the collection but together for 25 bucks but i prefer my metal gear to be on playstation and they have each game separated for 15. such a quandary. Also i understand gripes for both systems, when youre used to one you start to like it more than the secondary one but i like both systems strongpoints i just have more established with the 360, like the gold subscription would be wasted if i was on my ps3 all the time.

 

BTW we should someday do up some MK if you still play it. Im still not sure if we ever got any matches going... i know i played with some people on here tho but only talked to one. hate the game based chat on ps3.. ugh.

I feel like we played a few games of MK. Yeah I still have MK and also Street Fighter, I keep those games around because they are good when you have a group over and everyone can just pass a controller. Good solid games. I understand what you mean, the differences in the systems is pretty minor. It was kind of funny to see how out of date my 360 was. I spent probably an hour between updates and downloads just to play amazing spiderman (yeah, not so amazing...)

I downloaded Gothan Imposters on my PS3 a few weeks back and me and my wife took turns playing the free hour they give you and we both liked it. So last night I was downloading the trial on my xbox and my wife got excited thinking I had bought it, when she realized it was the demo on the 360 she called me a "cheap ass" I don't think she is too far off on that assumption.

If I had it, I would totally play. Ive seen it as low as $20, but i think i can wait for it to go lower. It did get meh reviews but being a RE nerd I still want to play it just not for alot of money.

Hey guys! Turned in a bunch of games over the weekend and got a few new games for the 360. I picked up Alien vs Pred (not too bad), Portal 2 (as good as everyone says it is), and Halo Reach. Im having a hard time breaking myself of the controls and the game play of Call of Duty to play Reach, but it's been fun, and a trip down memory lane to say the least (I used to tear Halo 1 and 2 up!)

 

Speaking of trips down memory lane, I also downloaded Tony Hawk HD, and wow, I forgot all about those games. I used to love Tony Hawk back in high school, it's fun to get to play it now. It almost worth it just for the sound track. If it wasn't for Tony Hawk, I would have never have heard of such awesome bands like The Vandals and Goldfinger. If you ever played those games and are on the fence about this one, I recommend getting it.

 

Anyone wanna play some 360?

For sure buddy, and believe it or not, but they told me at GameStop (I still call it EB, anyone else remember when it was Electronics Boutique?) that I couldn't have any games you have, so there ya go! I will probably be turning in portal 2 soon, I think I've almost got it beat, been a great game, better then I thought it would be.

 

Yeah I was really drunk that night too, I dunno why I wanted to play all the sudden, I woulda sucked, but now I will eat your soul! I saw a commercial for BL2, looks pretty cool, hopefully they will have it out on redbox and I'll give it a try before I buy.

Haha well just to let you know, that game is essentially 2 games in one. The single player mode is COMPLETELY different than the co op 2 player mode. and im talking about portal 2.

I'll keep that in mind, maybe I will keep it for a while then, I tried to get my wife to play, and she likes the concept, but not her cup of tea.

 

BestBuy has Call of Duty Black Ops on sale this week for $20 on both systems, I am gonna pick up black ops tonight!

sooooo i started up a demo of Mark of the Ninja and was blown away.. so much so i bought it. I havent had this feeling for any XBLA title in a long time. Im extremely addicted to it. I never knew a 2D stealth game could actually work and be immensely fun. I also got Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and wow what an amazing looking and extremely fun tekken. One of my all time favorite 3D fighters and this one is definitely the best of the series. Thankfully since Soul Calibur 5 was such a letdown and a travesty. That game shouldve had another year in development before being so rushed release.
