Ships Ahoy - PC Chronicles of Riddick

The Chronicles of Riddick continue on PC on GameSpot offers the low-key announcement that the PC Developer's Cut of Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay has shipped to stores. Here's a bit on the game:
Escape from Butcher Bay is a de facto prequel to the big-budget sci-fi film epic, The Chronicles of Riddick, which performed poorly at the box office earlier this year. Its protagonist, Richard B. Riddick, is a hardened, antiheroic criminal who is locked up in the titular prison at the game's start. Players control Riddick as he navigates his way through the interplanetary penitentiary, and lays down some of the backstory behind The Chronicles of Riddick and the first film to feature Riddick, Pitch Black.

A friend introduced me to the pc port of Enclave, it had console touches to it but it was a very polished 3rd person action game - didn't realise the same guys were responsible for Riddick, now I'm even more sold on the idea.

[edit]Phantom post appeared. Oddness.
I don't remember what exactly I had typed now, but I'll say that I'm quite looking forward to this, as I was enjoying the Xbox version, but was yearning for mouselook

I was put off Enclave (PC) because of the Xbox reviews and that was even after playing and enjoying the demo. Must look that one up on budget.

Hey, how's this for your hopes?

There was a little game called Enclave for the Xbox. it got horrible reviews....but only because the control scheme was godawful. Later, it was quietly released for the PC, with fantastic controls and barely a hint of Console in it. Save anywhere, crazy high-res, gorgeous.

Why is this relevant? The same company made Riddick. Expect it to be good.

The game kicked ass on xbox, and it can only be better on PC.
Definately worth picking up.

No way. WoW is officially the new EverCrack. You might skip a weekend to play something else, but then the temptation is waiting there on the hard drive, calling you...

Also, is Riddick's name actually Dick Riddick? Talk about your pornstar names.

Whats so de facto ("In Fact") about it? I guess it is true, but that goes without saying. I like it when people try to use phrases they don't understand

I played through HL2 in a marathon session (interruped only by lunch with friends), then went on to VTM Bloodlines. That got replayed quite quickly, and turned out to be a very different experience (went from a Ventrue to a Malkavian). After that, playing through HL2 again wasn't as stunning of an experience. Still, it was a great game, just because it's presented so stunningly well. The physics, while cool, weren't as terribly revolutionary as Valve seemed to be playing, but they're still fun to play around with (especially if you turn on sv_cheats and try host_timescale 0.4). Hopefully they'll push future FPSes towards the same thing (like the 'grass' and 'helmets you can shoot off' trends), and we'll see some truly interesting uses of physics in the next few years.

As for this game, while I can't say I've been eagerly anticipating it, the Xbox reviews were uniformly good, so hopefully it made the transition to a proper platform for FPSes well.

Anyone else playing HL2 over again right away? For the first time in memory I've got unopened, uninstalled, and unplayed games in my possession.

I'm trying not to, for the exact reason you describe (other games, still unopened)...

Eh, you are not missing much. I enjoyed, mostly because I can apprecaite the occasional gothic love-fest, but it does have a number of items that did/will make people lose interest.

yep - on my 3rd consecutive run-through of HL2, not because I feel I missed anything, it's just a damn fine game.

As for Chronicles - about time the port got done, just in time for xmas - spooky !
Shame they couldn't be bothered to release the movie over here until the 27th - which marketing genius worked on that decision?

Anyone else playing HL2 over again right away? For the first time in memory I've got unopened, uninstalled, and unplayed games in my possession. I've made an observation about playing HL2 the 2nd time. I'm usually the kind of gamer that likes to explore every nook and cranny (which I did the first time through) but playing again, I realize that there are specific places where the designers, IMO, intended the player to race through. Case in point, the first part of the air boat sequence (before you get "militarized"). Good fun.

I pre-ordered this about a month ago and will pick it up later today. Note, howerver, that I make no claim to stop playing WoW so I can play this or any of my other games.
I would be honored to have a Blue's News clan called "Blue's News"
However, it did get good reviews for the Xbox, the game seems like it could be interesting, and it is only $30.

I can't wait. I avoided the temptation to buy the Xbox version because I hate fp shooters on a console. Now I can get the game and play with mouselook! :-)
