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.

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.

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
741  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.

Count me in as being excited for ME2. I wanna get through this second playthrough soon so I can import both Sheps. I've been checking the site every day just to see if they posted some new vid or whatever.

In anticipation of Mass Effect 2, I've started a new game in the original. At first I made a FemShep Vanguard, with aspirations of doing Renegade, but I'm too much of a pussy to actually make many of the Renegade decisions. So, then I made a DudeShep Infiltrator, and of course aiming at Paragon. My first Shep was also Paragon, but he did have around 25% Renegade at the end, so I know I am capable of doing Renegade somewhat.

Started playing WoW after bf and friends got me into it. Playing a troll mage and got him to level 17 so far. I have mixed feelings about the game at the moment, but I'm having fun overall.

Finished Dragon Age: Origins and am completely floored. Haven't had a game experience like that since P3. Not that they were very similar, but they both elicited the same kind of feeling after I finish them, the same kinda melancholy feeling I got when I was younger when I finished a really good game or book and was sad for it to be over. I'm gonna genuinely miss the experience. Here's to a sequel coming out in the near future. *raises glass*

In order of most to least closely related to English, you have Scots, Frisian, Dutch, and German, with Afrikaans probably being somewhere between Dutch and German since it's an offshoot of Dutch. Also some people debate whether or not Scots is a language or a dialect. Additionally the weird Scottish accent in Dragon Quest 4 was not in fact Scottish English but a sort of pidginized Scots, I think?.

Also "German" and "Dutch" are more bizarre dialect continuums in the sense that Scots and English are probably equally/more mutually intelligible than, say, Hochdeutsch and Bavarian are.

Anyway, despite being less related, Swedish is faaaaaar easier than German for an English speaker. Namely, only two genders, fairly regular pluralization, verbs don't conjugate, and no cases. Also the general sentence logic is closer to English.

Ah, I stand corrected then. :)  You're right, the small amount of Swedish I've been exposed to has appeared more logically similar to English.

I recommend German for anyone looking for something not too complex as a language, since I think it shares more with English than other languages since they're both Germanic, but I could be wrong. I've been studying it for 5 years now, and I have somewhat of a reading proficiency with it, and I can speak it on a basic level. Dunno if I'll try to learn another one for December, but if I do I'd like to try French or Portuguese.

It's finals week so not much in the way of gaming. I ordered L4D2 and had it sent to my house instead of my dorm because I just wouldn't have the time nor the opportunities to really enjoy it here. I've also subsequently played too much L4D2 Demo and L4D1 in anticipation of the game, so I'm hoping I'm not gonna be sick of it by the time I get home.

When Fallout 3 came out, when it got advertised, it only ever advertised the Xbox 360 and PC versions. It was like saying that it never came out on PS3.

I barely even remember it coming out for PS3. I can definitely see how multiplatform games are marketed with a 360 bias, since I've seen several games at the game shop at the PS3 section and been like, "Wait, that was multiplatform?" Bioshock was an example of this, until like a month ago I didn't even know it was on anything BUT 360.
