10906  The Rest / General Discussions / 911 Dispatcher's Mistake Leads to Mother's Death on: April 10, 2006, 04:12:54 AM
Quote from: "Dios GX"
I'd just like to point out that for all anybody knows, when she "passed out" it could have been due to an aneurism and she would have been dead before this kid called 911. So I fail to see how she is "responsible" for someone's death. She is however, stupid as fuck for not taking it seriously.

That's how I interpreted it when I heard about it, that she had already died, so I've been more pissed at the throwing away the possibility to save her, as well as the whole 'Haha you're a kid you must be pulling a prank' bullshit.

Decided to pick back up SMT:N. Beat Death and went through the 3rd Kalpa. May focus on this instead of Oblivion for now.

Agreed with Neal. Also: If it's a false alarm, then having some police drill into their heads to not do this will have a much stronger effect then being hung up on by some stupid whore.

Edit: I worked off knowledge from what I heard on TV, but didn't look at the article. She's /not getting fired/? That pisses me the fuck off, she is responsible for someone DYING because of her incompetence. God fucking dammit, I'm thinking I'm going to be better off keeping phone numbers to the police and hospital around if that's how these stupid shitbags work.

umm... well... ah.... Ive never had to pay for a pet kitten, they usualy give the critters away in pet stores around my area.

Yes you do - in the form of medical bills. :P

I don't know you, and didn't take this seriously so I voted kitty. Had you been someone who's been here longer though, I'd have voted KH2.

Got the top rank in the Fighter's Guild in Oblivion at 60 hours of gameplay. Will deal with the main quest, try to buy all the houses, then probably call it quits for the time being unless I get an urge to deal with the other guilds.

Most of the bad I've heard about Suikoden V there was that it just takes awhile to build up. But once stuff starts up, it's huge.
10912  The Rest / General Discussions / PS3 $500 Euros on: April 07, 2006, 04:40:17 PM
I'm not touching the PS3 until it's been out at least a year. Usually that's all it takes for the good games to come out, but I hate the feeling of getting a brand new, shiny, expensive system... And being bored to tears with it because I don't have anything to play on it that's either good or I haven't beaten in a short period of time. We do spend a fortune on games, I'm sure, but we can sit down and enjoy those games right away - buying a PS3 right off the bat instead of those games is an investment, not something you'll enjoy right away. The price is an important factor, but what games are out at the time are more significant to me - and if this follows the example of virtually every other console, espicially the PS2, it'll be worth picking up come fall 2007.

Plus I want to get the Revolution. Screw it if there's next to no good new games to play, I can download an assload of old games that I want to play (again). :P
10913  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Square Enix merge on: April 07, 2006, 05:16:29 AM
I think the biggest change wouldn't be in the games themselves, but their translations. Games Square would've made would likely remain the same, it's not like the Square USA really changed when it became Square Enix USA. But the Enix games would almost certainly be either mildly or substantially different in translation, whether it's different voice actors, different dialogue, or just completely different from what we ultimately got (I'd be willing to bet that unless Enix Japan would have decided to push for the voice acting and other changes, DQVIII would've been just the text translated, and probably a release as Dragon Warrior VIII). As well, I bet the more minor Enix games, espicially the DQ spinoffs/remakes would've made it here.

Sketch - if it weren't for the fact it's generally common sense to make a seperate save for clear data (or overwriting a save you don't care about), and the fact both SH1 and 2 did this, I might sympathize with you. As is... Well, what Dade said. :P
10915  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Oblivion on: April 06, 2006, 10:07:06 PM
Anyone running into major bugs with this game? I had one case where a bandit I was fighting remained perfectly still, yet his model was swnging around as he attacked, moved, or whatever. And saves around (after?) that time wouldn't load up correctly, so I couldn't continue with the game.

Thank god I have multiple saves, I'll have to see how back I can load until it's safe, then redo that quest. :P
10916  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Tomb Raider: Legend on: April 06, 2006, 01:10:08 AM
Game's out in a few days, and there's a demo on the XBox Live Marketplace. Checked it out - yeah, the series is definitely worth playing again, and for once my optimism for a game with the odds stacked against it wasn't misplaced. They ditched the stupid control scheme that worked for the first game and pretty much only that, and on a whole controls very well. While I think it's only worth of about an 8, the level of improvement from the previous games is roughly the same as RE4's. Will definitely rent it later or when it drops down in price.

Quote from: "Phoenix's Rage"
Since the system's reported to launch region-free earlier in Asian and North American territories, wouldn't it make sense for Europeans to just import it for less?

There's the whole PAL display thing - maybe that'll be resolved with the system, but I'm doubting it.

Keep in mind that this is coming with a 60 GB hard drive, as well as the blu ray thing. At this point, the best I think we can hope for is a $500 price point. :P

Quote from: "Cauton"
Gast's comment above begs this question:
What is essential content? At what point does content stop being essential, and become something arbitrary that can be sold separately without being detrimental to the overall quality of the game?

I'd say as long as you can play and enjoy the game without it, it isn't essential. Such as if the game had plenty of tracks and plenty of cars, there'd be no issue. Multiplayer maps for Halo 2 under your logic could be 'essential', but to me I consider them nice bonuses as you can still play and enjoy the game online without them. Now for that to be essential, it'd have to be something like there was only one map to play despite having bought the full game, but you had to buy 10 or so more online in order to actually enjoy it.

Edit: A late reply to Angelo's bit, but... How about also 'taking advantage of such predictions by pricing a 50 dollar game at 60 because it's 'next generation' despite zero improvements? :P

Quote from: "daschrier"
PC gamers have had this happen to them for years...with directors cuts and deluxe editions featuring bug fixes and added features.

I recall that most of those, if not all, just had patches and expansions applied, the patches having been free in the first place and the expansions probably being more expensive stand alone than the game and expansion(s) combined in the premium re-releases.
10920  The Rest / General Discussions / Micro-transactions - Just another way to get us to pay more? on: April 03, 2006, 05:09:16 PM
It really depends on the features I'm getting. New multiplayer maps? Sure, that'd be nice. Paying nearly 3 bucks for /horse armor/ when I can go buy myself some fast food instead for that much? No thanks. :P

Though that'd have been useful when that unicorn attacked my horse.

Edit: And while this would be the most useful, definitely no to paying for patches, unless they add something major and significant to the game.
