Not far at all.

Maybe.

I think I'll give it a rest for a bit and come back to it once again, completely fresh/from the beginning.

I enjoyed it quite a bit from the start but I didn't really start loving the game completely until I went to downtown DC and just started exploring the subway tunnels and killing Super Mutants.

But yeah, a lot of the roaming out in the wilderness reminded me so much of The Road

Agreed, downtown is where the game started feeling awesome. That first main quest mission really won me over.

See you on PS3 tonight, NSW? If so, I'll grab a headset on the way home.

I'm gonna watch the Yanks, that'll end around 9/9:30...so, depending on how long it takes to set it up and all, maybe. If not tonight, tomorrow. Also, the console is here but Killzone is not, so, until I get that we're sort of at an impasse. There's always Gears, though, and the unfinished Horde stuff.

My internet is working again after nearly a week and a half! What did they used to do in the olden days before they had internet for entertainment? I vaguely remember watching tv when i was a teenager.
U2popmofo, you should remap the buttons for Killzone. It'll make it much more intuitive. I'll check what the name of the button set up I use is. And ya, grenades suck in it Its one of my biggest complaints. Its not as easy to make a sweet throw through a window to blow someone up like it is in COD4. I think its because they arent using the physics engine, its just an animation.

anyway, lets all shoot each other!

Do you aim with the actual sights much, or shoot from the hip more? I noticed you REALLY have to use controlled bursts in the game to stay on target, like 2 or 3 rounds max. It's realistic, which I like, but since there doesn't seem to be an aim assist in the game, sometimes I feel like I can't hit anything. Glad I'm not the only one who feels like the grenade throwing is funky.

Ok, PS3 is plugged into the outlet and HDMI'd to my TV. I thought my controller was wireless but I guess it's not? But, even when I plugged it into the console, nada. I hope I don't have to actually read instructions for that or for hooking up to my wireless connection. Eh, will do it later, after the Yankee game.

It needs to charge from that USB cable thing before you can use it wirelessly. I don't like how the controllers come dead like that, sorta makes turning on the system when you get it anti-climactic. Once I plugged mine into the USB port, at least it let me use it while it was plugged in. Shouldn't take long to charge, just turn your PS3 on and leave the controller plugged in for a little bit while watching the game. Take a look at the top of the controller, it should have a little red light showing it's charging / working.

I saw the red light but it still didn't really do anything.

I'll try again.

Thanks.

I always shoot from the hip when I'm playing multiplayer, which took a little getting used to. I'm pretty sure it tells you to do that on one of the loading screens while you're waiting for the matches to start up. If you're going to aim, its best to do it with someone who isnt moving much. If you line up a head shot, its an instant kill. Its pretty sweet to hear the little chime when you pick someone off from halfway across the map
I just checked the button set up. Use Alternate 2. I think its pretty much the same as call of duty. I also turn off aim lock. if you play around with the x and y sensitivity, it can help a bit too. I think my top slider is right in the middle and the bottom slider is two clicks to the right from middle. It helps to turn around a little faster

You need to use the D-Pad and not the sticks to navigate through menus I think.

you can use the sticks for the menus. it might sound silly, but you pressed the ps3 logo button on the controller, right?
