  6. 🍕 Summer Pizza Festival starts FRIDAY 🥳 Excited for our SIDEWALK SALE! Spread the word!

  7. I also am unable to play a game with a mouse & keyboard. Going back to the Doom, Dark Forces & Heretic days, I needed a joystick.
  8. Well, I took a break for dinner (which was difficult) but I have to say I can see why this game is a favorite among gamers...it even made Metal Jesus' top 10 list of favorite 360 games. I'm enjoying the story, enemies are not so bad at the moment, puzzles not too difficult to figure out. But, again, it doesn't reward the player very well or if you pick the wrong thing when you get the chance to upgrade/purchase something you're pretty much screwed. And more Rosies are roaming around more often now. Those orbs you can throw to make those things turn to your side are a joke. I have thrown countless orbs at them and they have not worked...yet. As far as current progress...I just collected distilled water and other items to make some sort of chemical to spray on some trees. I'm now on my way forward...hopefully. I still have one more child to save in Arcadia which I'm now hunting down. My favorite gun was the shotgun because I was finding ammo for it constantly. Now I'm about out and have not found any in this area without buying them...and money I ran out of buying pistol ammo for a back-up. I'm still enjoying the game but, dang, I thought Ark on XBOX One was unforgiving (which it is...you can get killed without warning and while in your home base by a roaming dinosaur) but this one doesn't give enough ammo for some of the basic weapons. I did pick up some kind of a flame thrower and equipped a wasp EVE. Even with all of the issues I'm having with ammo I'm still enjoying the game and I have to admit that it is starting to become a favorite on the 360...but Borderlands still takes the top. And I played FPS games on a PC back in the 386 days but not without my Gravis Gamepad. I simply couldn't do it with a keyboard. That drove me nuts. I'll stick with a game controller. I can at least map buttons sometimes to my liking. And since I have the game muted I'm not hearing the vending machines in this game. I keep it muted because of wife's TV so she can hear her programs. I do have subtitles turned on, though, so I can at least read the story.
  9. Oh, and like you guys, I never could take the "dark path" and harvest the little sisters.
  10. I played this series on the PC a long time ago. While I did like it, I got really frustrated (like you) at the lack of ammunition. And the "Circus of values" things -- I got so sick of that sound bite after a while. I think this is a game that really explains why I don't do "modern gaming" at all on PS4 or XBox One (or even PS3/360)...the PC versions of games totally kick butt in most cases with far superior controls. Even "Halo" (an XBOX game) is a lot more fun on the PC IMO just because the mouse/keyboard control system is so much more accurate and natural. Maybe it's just FPS games I guess.
  11. How about a few crazy pictures from "Marsh's Free Museum" in Long Beach, Washington....
  12. ok, we found more comic titles, some the boxes not so good because they were heavy to begin with, but some in good shape. so we are adding to the offer, shipping will be dropped for u.s.a. customers if they buy the package. we are throwing in a title for free if you buy the package. the game box is in rough shape, atari sold it to me that way. most people do not know this, but jack did dig up some E.T.'S, reboxed them in six pack boxes, and sold them to me. when i opened the six pack boxes, there was dirt in the boxes. i called atari, they told me what they had done. so please the box is that way for a reason. new total with free shipping IN THE U.S.A and a free E.T. $75.75. lance www.atarisales.com
  13. Last week
  14. Made it through Neptune's Bounty (3rd area) and, again, I rescued all the Little Sisters there. But there was a fourth one not protecting a child (I think it was called "Rosie"). Caught me completely by surprise. And I've learned in that area just how quick the tables can turn. I also don't really like the camera aspect because as soon as I snap a picture of any enemies I want to start shooting and forget to change weapons. I'm also carrying more upgrades than I can equip. This game is unforgiving but not too bad. I'm now starting Smugglers' Hideout. Also, I did some research on BioShock 2 should anyone reading this post take interest in the series. I located the original launch trailer to BioShock 2. I think I might have to locate BioShock 2.

      OMG, this is so frustrating.  On the bright side, no one is going to be sued for copyright infringement. 



       

  18. Oh and speaking of them, ALMOST FORGOT!!!
  19. I never thought of it as having levels... at least not in the traditional sense. It's not an open world, it's pretty linear, but it never felt like I went from level to level.... more like I just continued a story. It's been a while since I played, though, so I might have to go through it again to see if it feels like there are distinct levels. Maybe it does and the design was just good enough to blur them a bit. I do really like the art style in the game. The kinda 20's art deco stuff was really a change from most FPS style games, I thought. And the sound when you hear the Big Daddies was always kinda chilling. The game has a great ambiance. My first time I tried playing it... I kinda soft locked myself. I got to a point and didn't have enough ammo to fight the baddies I was supposed to go through. I set it down, frustrated, and didn't return for a while. Then came back later and started a new game and I guess tweaked my gameplay somehow and pretty much went start to finish. I also couldn't harvest the little sisters. lol... just couldn't do it.
  20. This is one of my all-time favorite games. I’m looking forward to another play through & reading your thoughts. Enjoy!!
  21. Well, I was going to save this game for a Let's Play video series on my YouTube channel but I just couldn't stay away from it. It would have made for a great video series but I simply HAD to play the game. It has been on my want list for a very long time now. Be warned that this post may contain spoilers for those who have never played the game before. Brief Explanation No...this is not an explanation of the game but rather how I came about the BioShock series. One of the free Games with Gold from XBOX was BioShock Infinite. I immediately loved the game for its antiquated artistic appeal and the story quickly grabbed my attention. I played the game for a while but never finished it because of another Games with Gold title that came next and became one of my favorite games on the console...Borderlands. But that didn't keep me from wanting to hunt down the first BioShock games in the series. I was curious if the story in all BioShock games in the series were interconnected somehow. So this is my first time playing the original BioShock game. Current Progress I just finished the first two levels, took down my first Big Daddy (mechanical looking machines protecting what appears to be a possessed child). These things protect a child (called Little Sisters) and in order to get to the child you have to destroy the Big Daddy protecting them. Once you can get to the child you have the option of "harvesting" them or "rescuing" them. If you harvest them you get more stuff called ADAM, rescuing them you get less. ADAM is the only source used for getting upgrades. Without it you might as well call it quits. The Big Daddy protecting the child had already been destroyed as part of the story. I had the difficult choice of saving or harvesting my first Little Sister. If I was to harvest the child the child would die. Poor child was running away and hiding from me in a corner behind a counter. Whether in a game or not it's still a child or the portrayal of a child...I simply couldn't harvest as much as I would have loved the extra amount of upgrades. So I saved her. I was then greeted with a second Little Sister. This one was still protected by her Big Daddy. The fight was on! A simple shot of Shock EVE (will explain another time) and a few shotgun blasts took him out. The child was mine! Again, I couldn't do it...so I saved her as well. I'm now on the third level. Current Thoughts of the Game I have to admit that compared to BioShock Infinite, which bright and full of light, this one seems a bit more dark and sinister. Nothing like what I was expecting. The difference between the two is easily night and day. It does have its scary moments that have made me jump. Nothing like trying to explore an area or solve a puzzle only to turn around and be greeted by an enemy trying to take your head off. Controls are still taking me a while to get use to as well but I am enjoying the artistic style of the game. Ammo is a mixed bag...for some weapon types it has been easy to find, for others it seems to be scarce. I will post more as I progress. But so far I am enjoying the game. Maybe I ought not to play it in a dimly lit room? So far it's been hard to put down. I'm always wanting to see what's around that next corner. Tidbit I've looked at images of the cover artwork for the packaging to this game for years now. Only when I had a physical copy of the game in my hands did I notice that there was a child standing to the left of Big Daddy. I've had the game for a few days now.
  22. I'm also loving those new Star Wars re-releases, they're so cool! They even have the Kenner logo on them I'll have to get a few. Take them out of the packaging and pose them alongside my gaming stuff in my Instagram photos.
  23. They are so unique for the time, hell even for now. I plan to get a bunch of the space related figures and do a video in the future. There are a few that cost a bit more than I would like to pay. Look up the xRay Adventure People. THEY ARE WICKED RAD!!!!
