Lux-Pain (DS)

Video games have come a long way since simply urging you to save the princess, and these days they increasingly present stories with complex, mature themes and social commentary. Lux-Pain, from publisher Ignition Entertainment, is a novel-style adventure game in the vein of the Phoenix Wright series, and it attempts to deliver a poignant experience to Nintendo DS owners. Instead, it is quickly tripped up by a plethora of embarrassing localization miscues, and what little exciting gameplay there is cannot break its fall.

The general concept is easy enough to grasp.

An infection known as "Silent" has been spreading around the city of Kisaragi, causing citizens to organize group suicides, commit delinquent and criminal acts, and basically just go nuts in one way or another. As Atsuki Saijo, a member of an anti-Silent group called "FORT," you're charged with going undercover as a high-school student to ultimately uncover patient zero: the original Silent victim. Bestowed with telepathic powers, you'll spend the next few weeks reading the thoughts of your classmates, teachers, and neighbors to deduce who Silent has infected and, hopefully, remove the infection.

Powerful emotions within people as well as residual emotions lingering in the environment--both referred to as "shinen" and represented as parasitic worms in the game--are the keys to uncovering the thoughts throughout the game. Atsuki automatically senses these, and when he does, a probing minigame is activated. In it, you simply tap at the touch screen to determine where a hidden shinen lies, scratch away at that area to reveal the shinen, and then hold your stylus on the worm to remove it.

The results of a successful probe are nothing short of baffling: The worm manifests itself into a "term," which is just a short phrase consisting of no more than a few words (such as "dumb kids," "kill them," or "nice guy"), which you must then "imprint" back into the characters' minds to discover what they're thinking. These thoughts range wildly from homicidal, self-loathing, and even flirtatious. Armed with the knowledge that you're supposed to gain from reading these thoughts, as well as information that you pick up through normal dialogue in school and on the street, you can track down Silent victims, have FORT examine the extracted infections, and find the original infection.

Sadly, this interesting idea never really pans out. A large portion of the dialogue is poorly and inconsistently localized, giving off the impression that multiple translators used different criteria in determining how to express given lines in English. It also seems as if the source material was scattershot. What you're left with are lines of dialogue that seem slightly out of sequence in relation to each other. You're also exposed to long chats that simply drag out the time between important plot points, such as the 30-plus lines about hunger and homemade cookies before finding out that a friend just landed herself in the hospital. This all makes the story harder to follow than it should be, and detracts from your ability to think about where to go and who to contact to achieve your goal.

Even worse, at the most basic level, you're showered with grammatically incorrect and confusing sentences such as, "Seeing such joy is what is to some people," or those that were simply translated too literally such as, "I ate his mind." Colloquialisms such as "wanna" and "gotta" are followed inexplicably by single apostrophes. Finally, it's almost guaranteed that you'll encounter an egregious spelling mistake nearly every hour. Taking the most basic plot points into account, it's pretty clear that Lux-Pain's story was inspired by serious social issues (parental negligence, serious depression, and suicide). It's a shame that the botched localization results in too much unintentional humor to take any of Lux-Pain's commentary seriously.

Despite the localization's best efforts to thwart your progress, proceeding through the game is never really a problem because Lux-Pain is a very guided experience--so much so that it ends up a bore. You simply tap on active points on the map to visit an area and talk to anyone standing there, but half of the time, the game dictates specifically where you can go. In addition, you rarely get to choose what to ask of whoever you encounter. More often than not, the person will show up, spit out reams of irrelevant dialogue, and leave. Thus there's little need to try to sift through the (largely useless) information that you've accumulated, given that progress is reduced mostly to visiting every possible place until you find a Silent victim.

When you do encounter someone who is infected by Silent, Atsuki detects this (without any effort from you, naturally) and the game launches into Silent-Removal mode. This is the most mechanically involving portion of Lux-Pain's gameplay; one of several minigames make you poke, slash, and chisel away at white blobs on the touch screen to successfully remove the Silent. These sections are only occasionally challenging and don't make up at all for the game's other deficiencies. To add insult to injury, one Silent encounter resulted in a Game Over screen without any explanation--even after the Silent was defeated.

With neither thrilling gameplay nor an immersive story, the presentation in Lux-Pain simply goes to waste. The anime-inspired character art is colorful, if not all that well animated. The English voice actors recognize how awkward the translation is and paraphrase much of their dialogue such that you're actually able to understand and appreciate small pockets of the story. Your in-game cell phone can receive optional news broadcasts, e-mail, and ringtones, and the local Internet cafe has a message board that's updated with information every day (though you can't post on it yourself). There are even multiple endings based on whose Silent infections you've removed. Sadly, the game fails to deliver on the most basic element of a novel-style adventure so any added features are wasted, much like any time you'd spend with Lux-Pain.

Xbox 360 Hard Drives - Could we get a price check?

There's pricing and then there's egregious pricing. It's plainly obvious to anyone who's ever used a computer that the Xbox 360 120GB Hard Drive upgrade kit could stand to have a better price point. Even the Xbox 360 60GB drive and the 512MB Memory Unit need price makeovers. Other blogs visited the topic almost a year ago, and since then prices have dropped -- just not nearly enough. A quick wander over to Best Buy shows the 120GB kit sitting pretty at $150, the 60GB drive lingers around $100, and the 512MB Memory Unit sits at $50.

Browse over to NewEgg and a conventional 120GB laptop drive now sits in the $45 price range. To be fair we should compare laptop drives with external enclosures to get a closer comparison, and even then we're only up to $70 and the drives are in the 250GB to 320GB range. The 500GB external laptop drives are $110. The pricing delta is even starker when we switch over to flash memory kits. You can easily find 8GB flash drives for $15, and 2GB flash drives go for as little as $5. Assuming we could divide up the 2GB flash drive into four equal parts, we're sitting $1.25 for 512MB. Microsoft's 512MB Memory Unit costs a meager forty times more than the going rate.

Come on, kicking up the hard drive size to 250GB or 320GB would probably make people happier, and at the same time not add much to the cost of the product. And who knows, if the Memory Unit cost $5 instead of $50, they might actually sell a truckload of them.

Monsters vs. Aliens (PS3/ 360 / NDS / PC / PS2 / WII)

Zombies vs. Robots. Pirates vs. Ninjas. Man vs. Bear. These legendary confrontations have long captured the attention of the public, mainly because they each channel into humanity’s innate desire to see things beat each other up. Monsters vs. Aliens, the video-game adaptation of the hit film, brings another one of these epic conflicts to people’s living rooms as it allows you to take control of three uniquely-powered creatures who are trying to save the Earth from a villainous extra-terrestrial menace.

At its core, Monsters vs. Aliens is a third-person platformer that offers three different gameplay styles, one for each character. You get to play as Ginormica — a 49-foot-tall woman that can barrel through anything in her way, The Missing Link — a fish-ape that can scale any surface and use his tail to swat away attackers, and B.O.B. — a gelatinous pile of goo that can stick to the ceiling, eat things, and drip through porous surfaces. Each of the game’s 25 levels is built for the talents of one of the monsters, as we follow these characters from a secret government base to the innards of a gigantic robot and eventually leading to a confrontation on the alien mothership itself.

All of the monsters have gameplay built around their talents, which makes playing as each of them a separate experience. Ginormica spends all of her time on skates, which are actually two jeeps that she steps on in the first chapter. She must charge through obstructions, grind rails, and wall-ride over hazards during her segments, where she is often being chased by some gargantuan menace. B.O.B.’s levels are mostly made up of platforming, as he must use his wall-sticking ability to climb over obstacles and melt through walls to escape the dangers that surround him. B.O.B. will also get to utilize a turret during a few boss fights, though these sections tend to be pretty short. The Missing Link’s areas play similarly to the Crash Bandicoot games, as he swings, throws, and flattens his way through enemies, boxes, and traps. Each character can also collect a number of DNA strands during their levels that can be used as money to unlock upgrades, extras, and challenge missions, giving you enough of a reason to explore each area carefully. If the action is getting a bit too intense, a second player can join in on the fun at any time with the touch of a button. This player becomes Dr. Cockroach, an off-screen character who can fire missiles using a handy targeting reticule and even pick up and fling baddies to their doom. While not as deep as a full-on Coop mode, this feature is a welcome addition.

While all three of the characters are initially fun to play as, this enjoyment doesn’t last forever. This is mainly due to the fact that nothing really changes over time, as the game offers almost no variety beyond the initial few levels. You will do the same jumps as Ginormica, destroy repeating baddies as The Missing Link, and slide through identical platforms as B.O.B. in each section, and no surprises await you later in the game to break the monotony. To make matters worse, the game also starts duplicating some of the boss battles in the second half, making your constant state of déj� vu even more painful. This is incredibly disheartening, as the core mechanics are very solid, the characters all control well, and the game would have been very enjoyable had more thought been put into switching things up.

Unfortunately, the repetitious nature of Monsters vs. Aliens doesn’t end there, as the environments of each chapter end up looking nearly identical to one another. Ginormica’s levels pack the most visual variety, as she is often being pursued outdoors with plenty going on around her. For B.O.B. and The Missing Link however, their specific talents really limit the design of their areas, resulting in many of their levels looking indistinguishable from the ones that you played fifteen minutes earlier.

While the repetitive nature of the title is frustrating, the playfully crafted world full of cheerful blobs, large-domed aliens, and clueless superbugs is almost pleasant enough to make it worthwhile. While the PlayStation 3 version of the title only looks marginally better than the Wii and PS2 versions, the environments are colorful and well animated nonetheless. Each of the characters has a lot of personality, and their expressive facial animations and cute mannerisms make them all equally endearing. The frequent cut scenes stay entertaining and action-packed throughout, and the kiddies will enjoy the humor exhibited by the cast. Speaking of that, Reese Witherspoon, Will Arnett, and Seth Rogan all reprise their roles from the film as the three lead monsters, and all do a fantastic job at bringing these creations to life. The rest of the game’s audio fits the action well, with cartoony sound effects and a sweeping orchestral score highlighting the game’s aural experience.

While Monsters vs. Aliens does deliver a terrific first impression, this potential is lost over time with the repetition in gameplay, lazy level design, and tired mechanics. While the kids may stick with it for the lovable characters, older players will grow tired of what is offered here by the mid-way point of its eight hour runtime. With excellent platformers like Ratchet and Clank: Future Tools of Destruction currently available for the PlayStation 3, it is hard to fully recommend what Monsters vs. Aliens has to offer, and I hope that this inter-planetary conflict will one day be given the video-game adaptation that it deserves.

Gameplay: 5.5
Each of the three playable monsters has their own move set and abilities, and they are fun to play as for the first few hours of gameplay. Unfortunately, when things never change, you start to grow tired of what is offered and the game becomes a chore to play.

Graphics: 6.5
Monsters vs. Aliens was clearly built for less graphics-intensive consoles than the PS3, so don’t expect a visual tour-de-force here. What you will find is colorful environments and delightful characters that are expressive and enjoyable to watch.

Sound: 8.0
The voice actors from the film do a terrific job of giving their characters life. Music and sound effects are standard cartoonish faire, but they fit the game nicely.

Difficulty: Easy/Medium
While not particularly difficult, the game does require the use of all of your characters abilities to get through a given level. You have unlimited lives, but some unclear sections might lead to a few unplanned deaths.

Concept: 6.5
The idea of having three different characters — each of which have their own unique gameplay — is a good one, but the campaign doesn’t offer enough variety to stay interesting all the way through. There is plenty of stuff to unlock however, and the story should take you about eight hours to chug through.

Multiplayer: 6.0
The game includes an offline drop-in/drop-out coop mode that lets a second player shoot at enemies using an on-screen targeting reticule. While fun to play in short bursts, the mode is limited and an unworthy substitute for an actual coop mode.

Overall: 5.8
Monsters vs. Aliens starts out very strong, but quickly falters due the constant repetition in the gameplay. Fans of the movie might enjoy this one for the first few hours, but those who stick with it longer than that will be eager to see the credits roll

HellGate London Cheats (PC)

London……2038, the world is not as it once was. Man had reached its pinnacle with logic and reasoning. Everything that was, is and will be to come gathered a universal acceptance as being explained from man’s factual thought process. Man grew abandoning the mysterious and unexplained, writing it off as folly.

This should not have been. With what can be explained as an act from the creator, a great and terrible darkness overwhelmed the planet that thrusted Man into the abyss. Man’s logic has turned into mayhem as darkness has begun its reign.
There are stories of this great purge of some sorts perhaps that began from the emergence of the ravens waiting in the Tower of London. Man only armed with what he could understand was completely destroyed and driven underground, ruined by dismissing ancient prophecies and ancient rituals that were seen as foolish superstitions. How far we have come in our deciphering our surroundings…how things were, how things are supposed to be…we haven’t even made a dent into what is real…what are we supposed to do now……

Hellgate game

Flagship Studios, the creators of the Diablo series brings you HellGate: London. Take the next step in RPG’s revolution and evolution. By creating a RPG into a first person shooter game you will not get tired of the same action game with the same twists and turns but what you also get is the depth of a RPG that plays like you are adding your part into the story. Each level is an incredible chapter about the preverbal struggle against our perceived evil in the limits of our bounded minds….

Another moment in this place we call a world. Nothingness, absolute dark… Some kind of life I know nothing about springs now, I wonder if we are that concept to them. That forever midnight caldron we call home is consuming right to our being, or if that is any form of reality now. The Templars fight furiously not too far away. Dropping these vial creatures that seem endless. What is this, why did this happen, how can we overcome this……?

Hellgate Tshirt

Hellgate: London is appealing the RPG fans and shooter fans alike. Delivered with DX10 displays that should be standard by now, any RPG player will get the maximum experience on their PC, new or old. Hack and slash your way through this immense tale of a post apocalyptic world revealed to be more than we know….

Seems like we are making some progress against this, impossible. Hunters are making some ground with that old, worthless science stuff the used. We did make some progress with all of that state of the art inventions we ooouuuued and aaawwwwed over….Geez, I can barely remember. At least the dark doesn’t so many terrible things in it for now….

Join in the battle for humanity, or at least a bloodline in a rare action RPG that captures the feel of an epic saga with how you would imagine a struggle like this would evolve. Fight with incredible new playstyles that tear into the enemies with detail and precision. You will be able to get first person perspective from different types of character classes also. Truly an incredible, event, which you can tear right into with great action play. Get into the game with long range fighting techniques of the Hunters or close range fighting, sword play with the Templars. You can also be a Cabalist who fight mid-range too. Fight online in the streets of London and get infinite replayability with no two games ever being played the same….

I can feel the struggle succeeding. The Cabalists are keeping the vile creatures at a good distance for the Templars to strike with their tremendous force. These secret society guys really did their homework about this and it’s the only stuff that will get us through this ordeal. I can feel hope, hope our defenders and valiant protectors provided the necessary footing the one thing we are starting to realize that can defeat this horror, us, Man. We can be the undying factor that will drive these terrible days away for good. We got to keep our faith and strength in ourselves, it is an undying force that will overcome these dark days, and we need all the help we can get. We got to get this done and drive this evil out of here. I believe, for the first time in a long time I believe that we will win our way of life back again. Are there any more people out there that can help us……?

When the screen says enter password, input P8M2-9D6F-43H7
(Cap-sense is on).
Then at the special missions screen you will see a mission called RESCUE THE EGG. Tap on it then do the mission and get the egg, this will not be easy and will take a lot of time and effort but it all pays off at the end.
Borrow (or buy) a second Nintendo DS and the copy of Pokemon Diamond or Pearl you want the Manaphy on. The second DS should have Pokemon Ranger inserted. Go to the Ranger net with the Ranger DS and tap on CHECK THE EGG and then tap SEND MESSAGE. If your Diamond/Pearl DS is close enough to receive the message, you will get the Manaphy egg traded to you.

1. Turn on your other DS with the D/P cart.
2 Select the option to transfer Manaphy.
3. Do the wireless oks and what not.
4 Go to the nearest mart with 5 pokemon or less to pick up your egg.

Hack - Tommy Vercetti Cameo
This changes part of the character01 file. Delete the extracted file if you want things back to normal.

. Go to the file character01.rar
in the directory .../install/gtasa/...
and extract it. You will find the code for the character known in the game as C.J. But if you want good old Vercetti back, then change the three digit number from 0 1 1
to 1 0 0
. This should change the character, I dont know if this will work on all of the peoples computers but it worked on mine.

Bug - Hood Loss
While playing the European English version of Grand Theft Auto San Andreas with the latest patch of 1.01, I encountered a bug.

The bug occurs near CJs house. I bought in the northwest of ballas territory when it comes to fighting turf, not too far from the beach and ammuNation.

While fighting a turf war normally there are 3 waves, ie you survive the first wave and then the second and when you survive the third "the hood is yours".

The trouble occurs near Jeffersons neighborhood as you drive to a nearby drive to take territory. While standing on rooftops, I survive the first wave of attacks but as I shoot a lot of Ballas a couple of them run away from me and are noted as purple triangles and squares in the green grove street territory. If I wander too far from the Flashing Red "contested territory" I get a message saying to "get back into the war zone".

I have stood in the war zone for 20 minutes only to just stand there with nobody coming after me, hence if I leave the war zone I dont get to win that area because after a couple minutes I lose it. Therefore I cannot simply go way out of the warzone and chase down the enemies. It is a glitch because there is no way to win the territory.
