    I've never got the minigun either. It's heavy, eats up ammo, inaccurate, and not very powerful.

    Shotguns, that's where it's at.

    I think I ended up keeping the minigun I owned in one of the lockers at my Megaton house. Fallout 3 was a lot of fun. I have Fallout: New Vegas sitting in my dorm, but haven't played it yet.

    Vengeance is a beast! You guys should try and find that baby.

    The Gatling laser in New Vegas sucks. I want another Vengeance!

    Shotguns are for pussies.
    Sniper rifles are where the fun is.
    That, and the Ripper to get up close 'n' personal.

    I think I just used a rifle of some kind.

    I forgot the Lincoln Repeater. I popped a lot of melons with that bad boy. And I went around wearing the Abe Lincoln hat to boot. :p

    You have never used the Terrible Shotgun I'm guessing?

    Was playing Fallout Vegas, stuck trying to decide if I should wipeout the brotherhood of steel for Mr House or not. Killed Cesar, did not like those guys for some reason. Crash issues on PS3...

    Am playing Red Dead finally, just got to Blackwater.

    Oh, playing RB3 too, just broke 650mil fans.

    Sniper rifles are very fun - I used them occasionally. My main weapon was the chinese machine gun though. i'd use a lot of Missles to get groups all up in a fuss, circle around cap 'em in the head. I had all the perks that increased accuracy so my head shots were always 95%. Laser rifles, and the alien blaster for gits and shigs. And the bloody mess perk to make a big red stain... fun!

    I have now changed my mind on Spider Man: Shattered Dimensions. 5/10.

    Haven't found that one yet...I'll give it a try.
    In all honesty, my Combat Shotgun is pretty much my go-to weapon in mid-range combat....if I can't "one-shot/one-kill" them from a distance with my sniper rifle, and I don't really want to get in a big bad Mutie's face to chainsaw them with the Ripper, I do give that Combat Shotgun a pretty good workout. (Although my flamer's always good for effect.)

    Speaking of Fallout 3, there's something that's been bothering me lately storywise --- the whole "meet The Family" quest in Arefu. Apparently, I effed the whole thing up ("QUEST FAILED!"), but from a moral standpoint, I can't understand why, for the life of me. Okay, these dudes are harassing the good townsfolk of Arefu, right? They've supposedly kidnapped Ian, right? Yet when I go to their lair, and they open fire on me and I proceed to wipe out The Family, everything's red-lettered and I'm losing Karma right and left. And to boot, now I'm an *enemy* to the people of Arefu. I rescue a kidnap victim, wipe out a family of raiders, and now *I'm* the bad guy....? Go figure

    It wasn't even the final battle that bugged me. It was the fact that the game wouldn't SAVE right before the fight. Sure, it gave you a checkpoint, but when you'd shut the game off and then come back to it, you'd have to start the entire level over. It got to the point where I just didn't want to slog through another 30-45 minutes just to get to the part I needed to beat. I just didn't have that kinda time.

    Other than that, yeah, a terrific game. Lotsa things that go boom.

    On the box they encouraged you to go all Rambo and unload as many bullets as possible. This was doable on medium but on hard you had to go for headshots and be careful, taking lots of cover. Because of this it took me an hour and a half to get through the last level. That was the big flaw of that game, no save points. This was particularly bad as you said, because all the levels save the first one were pretty damn long.

    Mike and I played Snow Bros and TMNT 3 on the NES last night. We cursed a LOT. Got the the last boss in each game and ran out of continues.

    There's a way you can make everyone happy on the quest but it's not obvious in the least. I had to use a guide to figure it out, the first play through I did the same as you. That raider group shouldn't have just flat out attacked though, maybe you killed the gaurd out front? That'll piss them all off.

    Minor spoiler... he wasn't kidnapped, so yeah, you shouldn't have killed everyone, and like lawdog said, there's a way to satisfy everyone in that quest. If you'd want to re-start the mission, you should talk to people in the group (specifically the leader), instead of going in guns blazing.

    If you do it right, there's a somewhat useful perk you can get out of it too.

    What went wrong with Spiderman, Drow?

    I hate the camera. I'll be swinging and trying to turn and the camera will swing around when I'm turning and jumping thus causing me to jump in the wrong direction. On top of that the web swinging controls are delayed and annoying. Let go, hold R2... hold R2....(still no web - falling... falling) press R2.... Hold R2 to recover (like in Batman Arkham) start process over again. I must've "jumped" off the oil rig platform while fighting Deadpool 4 times last night before I said **** this stupid **** and gave up.

    Other than that the game is a big fetch quest

    I haven't played a Spider-Man game in years because of this, they can never seem to get the web swinging controls right.

    In my opinion that's the 2nd best Spider-Man game. I would give the top spot to Spider-Man: The Video Game, the awesome arcade game from the early 90's.

    Well played, sir.

    Somebody here was talking about the Bulletstorm demo on PSN; I tried it last night. I think my eyes had an orgasm.

    That game could be a LOT of fun.

    I highly suggest you find any and all unique weapons as they are stronger than the original. And they're definitely worth using.

    I was talking about it on the Xbox. But I totally agree with you. It could totally be A LOT of fun.

    Looks like fun too - is it the same team from criterion that worked on Black? That game was very fun (referring to your previous posts about it). I just sold my copy of it on eBay a couple weeks ago.

    Yep, it's the same team. They apparently had some dispute with EA Games over doing a sequel to Black so this is an unofficial followup, kinda like Perfect Dark was to Goldeneye I guess.

    I really had no trouble with The Family. The sentry was glad to relieve me of 100 caps and I had a good conversation with Vance. I ended using an Intelligence check to create a win-win for everybody.

    It's because I didn't take any lip my first play through. :p

    I was essentially a good guy but I wasn't aginst starting a fight with people either. In fact, that's why I killed all of Paradise Falls, the guy out front was a *** to me. Freeing the slaves was an afterthought. :p
