I'm pretty happy FF13 is linear. After the decision-making and sidequest heavy Dragon Age: Origins and Mass Effect 2, I'm ready for a game where I don't have to stress about every little thing I do and can just sit back and enjoy the story without any anxiety. Not that I'm saying what DA:O and ME2 did were bad, I'm just looking for a nice change of pace.
707  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Getting psyched for Sakura Wars ~So Long, My Love~ on: March 04, 2010, 08:23:23 PM
Soo, I wanted to get the the full (or fullest possible for a non-Japanese speaker) Sakura Wars experience and decided to import the compilation of 1 & 2 for the PSP. I wouldn't have done it if I hadn't found out that there are translation guides for the games. They're the Kayama ones on GameFAQS, which I'm assuming are the most famous and/or most used ones for the games. To anyone who used these guides to make it through 1 & 2, how easy was it? Was it tedious to constantly switch from game screen to translation screen?

Did what I said I was gonna to and beat Mass Effect 2 today. The final decision was definitely one of those ones where I had to pause and think about it.
Code:
I chose to destroy the base, and I felt pretty good about it, since the Illusive Man obviously has an ulterior motive.
Wasn't terribly impressed with the ending though, but the last shot hopefully bodes epicness in the 3rd.

Then I played Resident Evil 2 on the PSP, and it is still very good, graphics and awkward controls be damned. I know it's a worn argument, but I do agree that the controls help add to the creepiness. And I lol'd when I was reading the difital game manual that was left totally unchanged. It even had that Capcom points thing in the upper right corner of the back page that you were supposed to cut out and send in or something.

Also: KillerArmoire, I love your signature to death, just sayin'. No pun intended either. :P

I didn't really watch much of the Olympics, but I was at work today when Canada won the hockey game and the T.V. was on and people were watching. The first thing I hear was, "Yeah you won, but we can still nuke you off the map." I wanted to throw something at him. >:(

PST was misogynistic? How so? I'm not disagreeing with you, it's just been years since I've played it, so whatever misogynistic elements there were I missed.

Women in the lower ward are sort of objectified and treated as second class citizens in the game...

... except it's made clear on several occasions that this is a very bad thing and a product of the corrupt regime you're sort of going up against.

Also a lot of the woman in the game are fairly scantily clad, which is clearly far more misogynistic than forcing them to all wear burkas.

Okay, I can see that now. I was like 10 the last time I played, so I think the themes kinda went over my head. :P

The Witcher - another hour or two.  Fortunately (?) an issue with an NPC sent me back to an earlier save, so I apparently hadn't used my talent points yet.  I also wandered around a bit to get some additional stuff done prior to advancing the main plot.  Despite the fact the game clearly suffers from Planescape: Torment syndrome in terms of its misogynistic presentation, that hasn't been too much of an issue, and at least unlike PST, it is there to serve a purpose in this setting.

Haven't played anything on account of research paper, but I'm planning on turning in a rough draft tomorrow and finally getting around to finishing Mass Effect 2. After that, probably Resident Evil 2 or 3. Maybe both in a marathon.

While waiting for the snow (I can't believe my district issued a snow day.  It's good outside; snow won't hit till evening) the movie Heathers was on TV.  Easily my favorite 80's movie and just a fantastic movie overall.  The writing is so good in the movie; so many quotable lines.  
 
Whenever MeshGearFox describes Ohio, I always envision it to be just like the movie Heathers.  

I loved Heathers, if only just for the "fuck me gently with a chainsaw" quote. :P I'm also a Winona fan, so it helps.

And if only the parts of Ohio where I come from were like that. We only have Amish, farms, and churches. Actually, scratch that. I'd rather do without the murderin'.

In movie related news, I watched half of Marie Antoinette. The scenery was well done, but the movie could not decide what it was. Also, the range of accents amongst the actors just threw me. I was also disappointed with Kirsten Dunst's acting, I think she could have done better.
713  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What feature in one/few RPGs should they all have? on: February 26, 2010, 02:00:45 AM
Being able to do the chicks you get in your party.


Okay, now for the serious answer: Being able to adjust the sound, music, and voice volume in games. Oh, and changing the dialogue of NPC's after certain intervals in the story.

Also, I know it's rather silly and less applicable in today's games, but I've always liked it when you could change the color of the dialogue box. Added a nice little personal touch to the game.

I'm looking forward to it, but I don't have a PS3, and I cannot afford one right now. Once I can, this will be game #1 for me. I hope it gets ported to PC/360 so hard.

It's a Sony franchise.

Darn, missed that bit of info. Oh well, might as well stop reading about it before I get too attached.

Yeah, I'm a little surprised at how close I am. Don't really care to play again right away though, though I'm wondering how I didn't get any points towards the Incinerate achievement.

Are you playing a class with biotic powers? Cause I'm playing soldier and the only way I get kills with it is when I make someone else use it. If they use it on their own, it doesn't count for me.
717  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Mass Effect 2 on: February 02, 2010, 08:50:59 PM
Anyone else notice the Baldur's Gate cameo in the game?

If you the mean
Code:
space hamster
then yeah. I totally bought it too, how could you not?

More Mass Effect 2. Did Mordin's and Grunt's loyalty quests. Grunt's was pretty good, and I like how Bioware is implementing more quests that aren't just "Dungeon, kill, leave." Well, this one wasn't terribly groundbreaking, but it was nice to see some thought paid to changing things up a bit. I also feed my fishies every time I get back to the Normandy. Already had a few die on me.

Playing Mass Effect 2 and loving the hell out of it. Good to be able to play with my Shep from the first one again. Got the first group of recruits, now on the way to getting the second, as well as doing sidequests. Planet scanning is tedious as hell, which is why I'm being more liberal in how much attention I pay towards it. My Shep romanced Ashley from the first game, and I'm torn between staying faithful or being a philanderer. :P
720  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: How long do you play games a day? on: January 31, 2010, 02:54:40 AM
Like most replys, depends on the day. On weekends that I don't work, I play games for stupid amounts of time, that is when I'm not with the bf or have homework. Most days I can probably squeeze 2-3 hours in if I procrastinate, but this quarter is fucking me in the eye so I can't play as much as I used. I play more than I should because currently I use games to relax, but of course this trend will slow down the later I get into the quarter.
