:D How is Warhawk community doing? I always see this on craigslist for like $10 so I'm thinking of buying again. I'm pretty sure I purchased 2 or 3 of the packs.

its been awhile since i logged in, still one of my favorite games, i just am to adhd to sit down and play it

they kinda killed it with releasing all these expansions instead of making them free and forcing all servers to have them

I want to play with my warhawk addons, yet not all the servers use them, and its hard to find one with the certain expansions activated

You'd think that, but no.
No 80 Gigs is plenty. It can fit tons of installs, tons of demos, and tons of PSN games. If you every run out of space you can delete demos and installs. If you get to the point where PSN games are taking up over 50% of your HD, or you store a boatload of music/videos you probably want more space. However, to even get to that point you would of bought well over 50 something titles on PSN.

The PS3 Slim actually has a different boot up sound. Direct feed in Gamespot Unboxing (first few seconds):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qIJMBmEAIc

My guess is that this sound will (eventually) be the standard bootup sound on all PS3s via firmware. Seems kind of dumb to have different PS3s out there without a unified OS...

In other news, while i was at Gamestop picking up Batman, my store got in 8 Slims today, 5 were preorders, and they had 3 left over.

I can confirm that my local kmart is getting rid of the Uncharted bundle for THE INSANE PRICE OF 275 USD! YMMV, but I just thought I would let you all know so you can call.

Holly shit, well done. You basically picked out all the good titles, still quite a few more but great choices. Tons of PSN titles waiting for you too. Where will you even find the time to make up the last 2 years of gaming. :lol

Your GAF has not failed you. You've picked the best 5 games you could start with for a new PS3 owner.

You are now one of the chosen!

Seriously, if you feel sadistic about score comparisons, put Gaffers Mazyx or Efertlisdotcom on your friends list, you will ALWAYS have a score or time trial time to beat.


Yes! Super StarDust HD will make your eyes explode from awesome score grinding fun.

Thanks for posting that Gary. I got one myself.

(Side Note: I still miss Game Theory. This would be a good topic on the show. :( )
Gary is too much of a Hollywood celebrity these days to be messing around with gaming podcasts ;)

You're going to have a ton of fun. Which one are you thinking about starting to play first?

Slightly OT: Fuck the last boss/stage in KZ2.

Get Shatter instead of PixelJunk Racers, if you were going to get all 3 PJ games.

Don't worry I'm getting that next paycheck. I spent a little too fucking much this week. Set me back a lot into my savings :lol

As to what I'm playing first.

I'm thinking Valkyria Chronicles, only because it seems to be different from everything else I'm playing at the moment. I'm playing Wolfenstein so I'm not trying to start another FPS yet, and Batman is my adventuring fix so Uncharted can wait. PLUS I purchased Prototype like a week or two ago sooo... INfamous seems redundant for the next few weeks :p

I recommend either Uncharted or MGS4 after you've beaten Valkyria or at least whenever you get bored with it.
