• Sweetz posted a message in the forum topic Have to get a new PS3 or 360 -- which should I get?. on the General Discussion board

    But you'd have to re-buy the games you do still want to replay if you get a 360, yes? Wouldn't that ultimately make it the more expensive proposition?If you have a half-decent PC, you'll probably fin...

    So Jak 3 is a way better game. Much more reasonable level of challenge, most of the annoying padding removed or significantly streamlined.I'm far enough along in it now that I feel confident saying th...

    Finally beat Jak II tonight.Most of the missions in the latter third of the game weren't so bad. I mean they were still very annoying due to a lack of reasonable check-pointing, but I never got too ...

    I'm only half-way through the QL so I'm not sure if they figure this out later, but when toasting the bread, toasting specific segments on a given side absolutely matters.

  • Sweetz posted a message in the forum topic Replaying Jak II - #1. on the Jak II board

    Good to know I'm not alone in thinking the game is annoyingly difficult. I don't understand what Naughty Dog was thinking. It's difficulty level is well above and beyond pretty much any of it's contem...

    I realize I'm replying to a 5 year old thread, but it seems appropriate place to share my thoughts on the game.I'm a huge Ratchet and Clank fan, but I skipped the Jak games back in the day. I picked ...

    @shagge: Pagan doesn't live there. The fortresses are just glorified outposts. The actual end game battle takes place in the much larger area.

  • Sweetz posted a message on the post Mario Party Party 4 - Part 02.

    Despite the mini-games repeats, this does seem to be better across the board than the N64 games. There must be a whole heap of nostalgia clouding the fan rankings.Thoroughly enjoyed this one, the cre...

    I think a recent Firefox update introduced this. I've been using Firefox with Giant Bomb for years and this issue just started happening for me in the last few weeks.

    You know, it still really bugs me that, as far as I'm aware, there's absolutely no attempt at explaining Volgin's electricity powers. I mean everything else weird in Metal Gear has at least some attem...

  • Sweetz posted a message on the post Unfinished: Captain Forever Remix 04/03/2015.

    Hmm the aspect doesn't appear correct on this. It looks horizontally stretched a little based on how the ships distort when rotated. Is this a game problem or a capture problem?

    It's a real shame they missed the sneaking suit. It's in the locker where you stuff Raikov the first time through that building.

  • Sweetz posted a message on the post Quick Look: Karmaflow: The Rock Opera Videogame.

    I too am a bit disappointed in how Dan and Drew approached this QL. Even if the game wasn't amazing, they should at least make *some* attempt to pay attention to it, but they went into personal conve...
