BG2's Athkatla is pretty memorable, which I'd hope so, since it's made up of like 6 different town areas, not to mention all the extra places hidden underneath.

And I'm gonna ditto all of Dice's picks. (SO2fistbump)

I know this is cheating, but I also love the first town you go to after the starting city of Alexandria in FF9: Dali. The music and the design for the town is so serene and calming.

This is also cheating, but I'm going to say most SaGa Frontier towns are quite good and very memorable.

"12.) The game has a save-room hub area"

Fuck yeah. I love it when games have elements like this. Part of what makes a really effective horror game, IMO, is managing the rise and fall of tension. Save-hub rooms are great places to relax a little, let the tension fall and let yourself catch a breath. Looking back to the classic Resident Evil games, I remember feeling relieved when I got a save-hub room, but the whole time there was a little bit of unease because I knew I would eventually have to leave the relative safety of the area and venture back into the dangerous unknown.

EDIT:

Or basically what Yoda said here:

Excellent. The save room music was fantastic in RE.

You felt safe and at ease from the SURVIVAL HORROR

I finished Xenogears about a week and a half ago. Overall I enjoyed it, but whoo boy, the way the story goes in the last 1/3 of the game. Also, the final boss was a decent challenge, although for the record I didn't spend time grinding or getting the best accessories.

Code:
Fei's relationship with Elly is kinda incestuous when you think about it.


I started playing Fable 3. I played it some when it first came out and it disappointed me. However, now that I've had time to properly manage my expectations, I'm finding it to be a fun time. It's nothing "revolutionary," but I'm enjoying it. And the humor is pretty great, just like 2's.

Also have been playing Five Nights at Freddy's. I'm stuck on Night 2 but I'm loving it. I'm making sure to play in the dark, alone. The game makes good use of the player's tension, since you want to know where the characters are at, and when I see that someone has moved, I panic a little bit and start checking all the cameras until I find them, inadvertently using up power. I've jumped quite a few times. Definitely a worthwhile investment of 5 bucks.

Silent Hill 2 is a great doors-with-broken-locks simulator.

Evil Dead 2.  Nuff said.

Anyone read Seconds by Bryan Lee O'Malley yet? It's fucking great.

Mega Altaria is the most beautiful thing.

Oh man, loving the Asylum cover. Feels very Hugo's House of Horrors or Alone in the Dark.

Also the Piercing Eye one is now my new background!

I don't know, the Titan has that epic punch that feels SOOO good. Just walk into a level one area and start punching away, and the enemies go flying. I also found an area I didn't know about in the beta, The Grottos. Not to mention I broke the game last night, escaped the map! Fun times.

The titan punch is satisfying, but what sold me on the Hunter was one day I was playing on the Venus map and an enemy jumped up over a ledge and I hit them with a throwing knife right as he came over the edge. It was just so perfectly timed, and total shit at FPS's so that kinda made my evening, haha.

I'm personally loving the Hunter. I know it's cheap, but I can't help but abuse the knife throwing skill.

This is an accurate representation of what I want the next ME game to be.
27  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Destiny on: July 17, 2014, 09:52:11 PM
I have 2 PS4 codes available if anyone wants one, just PM me

Same here! Just send me a PM if you want a PS4 Beta code.

Had a mixture of a really shitty weekend and a really amazing one. Everything after 12PM on Saturday has been amazing and everything before sucked balls. But the good helped me deal with the bad: got to spend the weekend with a couple close friends from high school, played D&D with them and some other peeps, drank a lot, played multiplayer games and ate the best fucking hot dog I've ever had. Got home to find my PS4 arrived, and now it's all set up. :)

Here's to hoping we all have a better week than the last one!

So yeah, Inquisition.  I have no idea.  I'm not even sure what race, sex, or class my Inquisitor is going to be.  That'll be at least three hours at the character creation screen(s). 

I'm pretty much set on who my Inquisitor will be, but I'll end up spending 3 hours at CC fine-tuning what they will look like, haha.

I've said it probably a thousand times, but this is my most hyped game of the year, right before Pillars of Eternity (if that lands this year, which I am doubting). Everything I've seen for DA:I has me intrigued, and I can't wait to get my hands on Dragon Age: Keep and play around with that. Hell, I even have a countdown on my phone for when this game releases.
