You get superpowers at a certain point in the game, starting with two: a really, really fast run and a super jump. There's more but I haven't unlocked them yet, and you can upgrade them too to be faster/higher/whatever. It's so much fun.

Plus there's the fact that you're the President fighting off an alien invasion. And it's laden with shoutouts to other games (yes, Mass Effect included) and of course the past Saints Rows.

As Parn said, great music. I died laughing when Aerosmith played early on.

Nice! Gonna wait a bit though, maybe it shows up in sale or something. Can't wait to meet SR2 Shaundi again.

SR2 is damn good despite the shoddy pc port. If you thought Dark Souls was bad you've seen nothing.



Getting mine after work today.

How is the game? Is the Boss able to fly all over the place a la Vanguard?

Even with the restoration mod the ending still feels incomplete, probably because it is. There's only so much modders can do or else you risk venturing into "fanfiction" territory. Still, I thought the team did an admirable job considering the material they had available.

During her final speech Kreia does a little info dump about what's going to happen to the Exile's companions, except the droids and Bao-Dur. I think you can even decide if the Exile is going to look for Revan. I recommend you read this excellent Let's Play, specially the last chapter. It also could have something to do with you going Sith, I've read that a dark side playthrough isn't as fulfilling as its counterpart.

KOTOR 2 is a great game, but you need to keep in mind its flaws. If only LucasArts didn't rush Obsidian...

New Vegas - Beaten! What a masterpiece, haven't put so many hours in a PC game since Dragon Age, way back in 2009. Good thing I managed to solve my issues with the camera or I would miss a truly great experience. Obsidian deserves all the praise, you can tell NV was a labor of love.

Dark Souls - While I like the game, it's missing something the Monster Hunter series has. Outside the bosses, most enemies are boring/repetitive to fight whereas in MH they differ in size, behave a bit randomly, you might be paralyzed by a vespoid and get trashed... A battle will never be the same, even if you are prepared.

Saints Row 3 is pure crack. Yesterday I raided a BDSM nightclub and had a ballgagged dude in a fedora drive us away via pony cart. I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried. Pondering if I want the DLC or not.

I thought the story DLCs (Clones and Gangstas in Space) were kinda weak and short, don't know about the others.

Heh, I hear you. Good deals so far, Dark Souls at 75%, now it's Fallout. Hope Torchlight 2 gets picked as the community choice.

(I have to run the internal resolution at like 600 x 480 kekeke)

I remember having UnlockFPS enabled, with a target framelimit of 20 or 30. I don't remember how well it kept it at the target, but I do remember getting that it felt like my attacks weren't always connecting when I had it on, also some of the animations behaved really strangely with it on.

I could try running it with the target FPS set to 60 and see what happens.

Ha, now I have to try it out! Thought the internal res would only go as low as 800x600 since setting the display to 800x600 would crash the whole thing.

The author mentioned the possibility of glitches once unlockFPS was enabled, but I didn't notice any weirdness going on. Maybe a more stable version was released, I don't know. Framerate limit is currently set to 30, though the game was fine while running at a higher rate.

I'm afraid I don't understand the finer details and inner workings of DSfix, but I did several tests nonetheless. From what I've gathered, the default render (ie internal) resolution is 1024x768. It doesnít mater if you set another display value (like 1920x1080), itíll just stretch the image because internally itís still rendering 1024x768.

Running the game at default settings = 15fps, meanwhile running default + unlockfps = 25+, a considerable gain. Whatever it does isn't linked to the resolution, at least not directly. In another test, downscaling the internal resolution to 800x600 boosted the perfomance at the cost of image quality and even more so when unlockfps was enabled. Setting the priority to High for DATA.exe in task manager helps a little too, just not as much as unlockfps.

Check the Dsfix ini file, the author made some interesting comments there.

Dark Souls - UnlockFPS in DSFix does miracles, my aging computer went from 15 to 25~35 fps. Let's see if the game is worth the hype.

New Vegas – The Strip and the meeting with Benny were underwhelming. I keep hoping something in the main quest will top Dead Money in terms of writing/atmosphere but no luck so far; maybe OWB or Lonesome Road will. Anyway, I have to deal with the Brotherhood but have no idea how to proceed. Kudos to Obsidian for not leaving an easy way out.

Why can't Mozilla get a Firefox update right? Version 21 had rendering issues, now it's DPI weirdness. I think they are secretly trying to drive people away. Maybe I should check out Chrome...

I will however be animating my "retro gaming weekend" routine starting this week. Deliberating between "Mother 3" and "Dragon Quest 6". I have no experience with either. The draw of Mother 3 for me is the fact that I loved earthbound. Dragon Quest 6, on the other hand, would be my first experience with the dragon quest franchise (something I've been meaning to get to for years). Leaning toward Dragon Quest right now on account of being in the mood for some classic Akira Toriyama crafted characters and whatnot.

You can't go wrong with either of them. Dragon Quest 6 is a solid game, even more so if you enjoy job systems. If you like it enough, check out Dragon Quest 5.

New Vegas - Dead Money completed. Despite the criticisms, I enjoyed it a lot. The main mechanic wasn't as terrible as people made out to be; it only got annoying during the final area because there were radios everywhere and I had trouble finding their locations. Otherwise, the intriguing story and charismatic companions, some even more interesting than those in the main campaign, made up for any possible failings gameplay-wise. Not sure if I should tackle Odd World next or, you know, enter The Strip.

New Vegas - I got an anti-material rifle and the thing sure can pack a punch. I think it's the first weapon I've bought since the beginning... or was it the sniper rifle? Anyway, finished the Honest Hearts DLC, which was pretty good. I'm going to explore the Mojave a bit before hitting up Dead Money next.

And what about the nightkin wearing a wig? The wackiness won't stop!

New Vegas - I was peacefully exploring an area when I got blown up to bits by missiles. Eventually I found out what was happening but it was completely unexpected. I think that's why I'm having so much fun playing the game: it's packed full with all kinds of random and crazy stuff.

You mentioned Fallout 3, but did you try New Vegas too? I thought F3 was terribad while NV solved all problems I had with the original (Gamebryo crappiness aside).
