Re: The Thing on PS2.

Buy "The Thing"
Watch "The Thing" (so much better than the original!)
Play "The Thing"

Anyhoo - on the subject of walk-throughs - what's the point of playing a game and giving up when you get stuck? You may miss out on the rest of the game!
I see nothing wrong with them as long as they are used:
(a) as a last resort and only for the parts you're very stuck on;
(b) once you've completed the game once and are looking to find all the hidden extras before the game starts to get boring and you never play it again.
If you use them from the outset then you're no higher up the gaming chain than a spawn camper.

Re: The Thing on PS2.

I only turn to walkthroughs, when i'm I am really unsure what to do (and when the game itself gives no hints),

or when im doing subquests, like in legend of zelda : ocarina of time, I don't want to be walking around for hours at a time trying to find the next gold skulka. (you try finding 50 gold skulkas when each one will only appear at a set time of day and a set age )

on the Thing for ps2, it's more action than horror, as a survival horror veteran I found it's horror to be under-par, but it's action made up for it,

Sci-fi gaming wise, it's pretty good, and should have done better sales wise than it did

You don't. You persist. There's no such thing as "impossible to win" on a video game. And therein lies much of the fun.

Re: The Thing on PS2.

Well, after being incredibly frustrated with a bit from Splinter Cell, I haven't picked it up in about 2 months now. And the damn Subway nearly drove me crazy in SH3, I never would have thought of the solution by myself because I had checked and rechecked the area the key (Or rather, nutcracker) was in repeatedly. All I needed was to realise that I was actually looking for such an item in the first place. I was convinced I was supposed to keep flinging myself on the train track and jumping up in time, but I didn't realise I was nowhere near the right train track, so I kept getting run over, complete with gross squelchy sound effect.

Damn games....

Re: The Thing on PS2.

That alien verus Predator 1st person game is decent....i been playing the demo of the 1st levels. Samples all the sounds from the movies and is rare in a game in that it actually can be quite tense playing it...especially as the marine. recomended=]

Re: The Thing on PS2.

Yea, it's okay as a marine, but there's something about the sound of that plasma caster that makes me...well...hot.

I do not...

I do not have a playstation 2, let alone the Thing. We are still playing Final Fantasy VII on playstation 1.

We have also being playing Ultima Online for the last year when we have time on the weekend, but no longer.

I am not sure I want to play anything now that I discovered Forums-Forums everywhere. Hehe.

They even have Forums on how to grow spinach. Did you know this? Sounds boring, but it was in fact amazing the things I learned. There are also forums for people who love cockroaches. That one I did not join.

So much for games. I used to love play Tomb Raider and Resident Evil That was so scary. I only wish along with the weapon you can also change the nice clothes and shoes after every major fight or scene. Then it would be perfect.
