yeah, I'm just not looking forward to bouncing on those shooting flowers then floating all the way over there to get into the entrance again. So you picked it up? What do you think so far? oh and the way down to the forest island, did you see the submarine with the 2nd empty bottle in it?

i dont think mine had a bottle in it....unless i went to a different one. gonna have to backtrack once the free roaming goes down.

Kerbal Space Program 0.22 is out. I think I'll take a break from my second Skyrim outing to perform some “Science.”

Partner Purchase Program - 30 Day One Edition Xbox One consoles for publisher employees in the U.S. and Canada to purchase. Price is $499, which is the same price as the Standard edition. Yay.

And today we got the notice from Sony....

PlayStation 4 consoles are being offered to our key business partners for $399.99+ tax (free shipping to your corporate offices). SCEA will provide delivery by November 15th, 2013, the official launch date of the PlayStation 4. We are limited on the amounts so first to respond gets priority.

PlayStation 4 Employee Purchase Program Details
• PlayStation consoles will be received by November 15.
• We will need your name, address where you want it shipped, email address, phone number and department.
• Amount is $399.00 plus tax- shipping is free

I note that this isn't as nice of a deal as MSFT was offering for the XBONE.

I cancelled my PS4 Pre-order. The one game I REALLY wanted at launch Watch Dogs was pushed back, though I cancelled before I knew that. That made the decision easier to swallow though. I figure I'll get a new console the early part of next year as there are still games on my PS3 that I need to get through, and some that are coming out that aren't coming out on next gen right away.

I'm waiting for a price drop to get a new one. Maybe 2 price drops.

How are Wii versions of the Lego games? Are you required to use the Wii mote?

I played the Marvel demo, and it got me interested in some of the older games. Most of them always seem to be in the bargain bins now.

It takes me about 5 minutes to land or hover over anything.

Was trying to play through startropics when the controls decided to stop working in a room with falling tiles... seriously... the jumping works fine for the first 80% of the room... then as soon as I jump to the tile that makes the switch appear, it won't jump anymore. RAGE.

The reason I posted was because I was doing that mission for Solomon where you scare the actor by flying near buildings or under bridges.

I crashed into the water in the aqueduct thing.

the only annoying part of the choppers is the inevitable heli-wobble that happens way too much.

The higher your characters flying skill, the less often this happens.

Not gonna lie a few of those flying missions later in the game even with my characters flying skill upgraded, I just killed myself 3 times so I could skip past that part of the mission. Planes im pretty good with, choppers... I suck.

also - i got pretty close to having a clean run at the fighter jet by parachuting in. i think that might be the best strategy for the scot-free escape

It definitely is. I went 4 for 4 last night parachuting in. It's all about jumping from the helicopter before you get 4 stars.
