What are the bets that May ends up working for Coffee of Doom? It's just too predictable.

LJFelix beat me to it, but yeah that's the best approach.  And knowing the message it gives you when it doesn't move them over would be helpful, or am I misinterpreting and it simply freezes after a while of copying?

Okay, so first impression, non spoilery stuff:

Visuals - Pretty damned impressive.  Skyrim has been the measuring stick for me on the 360 for how beautiful a game can be, and this is either as good, or slightly better.  Bear in mind, I'm on the 360, and playing on a 40" plasma at 720p, so in all fairness it'll probably look better on current gen stuff at 1080p and who knows what 4k would look like.  That all said, there's something goofy about certain parts.  For some reason certain areas look very cartoony to me.  I haven't figured out why, unless it has to do with moving from a wide open space where everything is given such an eye for detail to a fairly small area that looks like 'videogame spaceport 1.111'.  It's actually a little jarring, to be honest.  Overall, the game is gorgeous but anyone following this release probably already knew that.

Sound - In all honesty, sound doesn't equate to much in games for me these days, unless it makes me notice it, and this one does.  I can't tell you how many times I was playing and immediately whipped around, looking in every direction to ascertain what the hell I just heard.  That is something I haven't seen so prevalent in a long time.  I don't know the specific mechanics used, but they did it right. 

Presentation - You won't find a lot of innovation here, but the formula being used is not a bad one.  The HUD, the screen prompts and the like are all pretty standard stuff.  If you've played FPS games in the last 10 years you'll be comfortable with what they have here.  Where you'll notice a change is the Menu, and I really like what they've done with that.  It's difficult to describe, but I guess if pressed I'd say that it is an 'aim' and click interface.  It's very intuitive, very easy to use, and you can get around quickly which is important since if you 'pause' in the worlds where enemies exist, they can still shoot you.  That's certainly not pausing in the traditional sense.  That said, I was still able to use it, and I didn't die once while paused.

Okay Ė spoilery stuff potentially follows, continue at your own risk and so on and so forth:

If I find anything else worth mentioning, Iíll post it here, and if anyone has requests or questions about the game please donít hesitate to ask.  If I can make it happen, or check it out, I will.

for such a cheery show this sure was a dark joke.

Try them in someone else's computer. Check all of the discs for scratches and things like that. Is there any particular error message that comes up when you put them in?

The comic is now relevant to my interests again, I really hate Sven.

I really could not give any fewer fucks about what happens to May.

So, uh, you don't like May? Just a feeling I've been getting recently.

I may have beaten that dead horse a bit, apologies.

We understand your diss-May.

I can't actually help at all, replying in case there's ever anything I can help with, but the idea of May saying 'halp' is so adorable.
