That appears to be a video of actual water with the CGI superimposed over it.

... I hope you're being sarcastic L:/

Lugnar the Sliver Start Sluts:

I'm at the part where I do things with Tempest. idk should I get Ebernal True?

Grandia:

In that prison bit. Prison bits kill my urge to play games.

Spermetroid:

Just killed Spitoon, gon' go do the rest of Clankyworld I guess.

Nameless:

Okay this is pretty neat although the graphics sort of clash, at times. Namely, there are pre-rendered 3D sprites which look LESS THAN GREAT. But not really bad.

Gameplay wise. They kept in a lot of the physics from the original -- and compared to Super Metroid, Exile's physics are a lot more pervasive, and actually... solid. SM's physics were mostly faked and incomplete. Like, the grappling hook didn't behave properly when you spin around a single hook point in a circle, for instance. Also in SM, only samus really has any sort of physics applied to her. In Exile and The Namelss, EVERY object behaves in a newtonian manner and has inertia, weight, friction, etc. Meaning you can grab a desk and lob it at an enemy to push them into a flame if you can't shoot them directly.

I'm not seeing as much object interaction in the nameless though. I'm up to the fourth keycard out of about 16. Exile 1 had seven keycards and a lot of puzzles involved finding them, but the puzzles weren't limited to finding the keycards. In The Nameless... you sort of just find them lying around and the only puzzles involved in getting them so far has been to find the previous key card.

I did find a pool of water, though, and some mysterious rock that I could pick up but not do anything with. Here's hoping that comes in useful. i tried sticking it in the water, actually, because there's a bunch of moths nearby and I thought it might start fizzing when put in water or explode or whatever. Exile had some things like that. Not sure why the moths convinced me that would happen. I guess I subconsciously associate moths with exploding because they're prone to.

Still not seeing any indication of finding a pet creature that you can use to find keys, for instance, or things like trading monkeys mushrooms for energy packs.

The sort of unnerving thing is that since like, Nixon or thereabouts, Americans have been getting substnatially less trustful of the government, for obvious reasons. Which is good. You want the people to call the government out when it's fucking up.

However, you start running into problems when people:

A) Stop voting rationally and start voting sensationally.
B) Put party above anything else.
C) Start believing in insane conspiracy theories like "Death Panels" and the whole birthers and truthers and HAARP bullshit.
D) Lose the ability to realize that their party losing an election is NOT the end of the world.

Which is veering sort of dangerously close to the Russian political mindset.

why can't 4chan do stuff like "troll the government by picking up litter and adopting puppies" or something

She's like 3 or 4 people in one body.

Well, realistically speaking, she HAS had several people inside her body.

And I'm not just talking about last night.

How many Poles does it take to permanently associate the Olympics with 4chan?

It's just a major big lipped alligator moment. I'm not really blaming Peter Gabriel, honestly, although Myst 4 DID come out during the time period when he and Phil Collins seemed to be whoring themselves out to pretty much anyone.

I live in rural/suburban Ohio. People fucking adore Palin in Lima, and when she spoke at my university she apparently drew a huge crowd.

Motherfucking Ohio...

---edit---

Wait no I approve of this. Now if only I could drive, that's only like half an hour from here.

The RNC won't let her run.

She's not running as a Republican. She's running as the Tea Party candidate !!@!12

I also got said ad. These scripted ads do their job well.

So why do I get Evony ads everywhere else and why don't I get relevant ads when someone posts about somebody's dick getting mauled by a porcupine?

Actually I'm hoping the ad thing runs off of what's in the post *body* and not just the topic line, so that maybe I can start seeing ads for some weird version of Evony where Sarah Palin is stripped down and about to get raped by a porcupine. "Save me, my liege!" Shit no I'm gonna watch how this turns out, dawg.

Relevations had some random scenery objects, such as the meteors in... one of the brother's ages, that were actual 3D models that weren't pre-rendered. They looked really bizarre. Also there's literally a five minute long peter gabriel music video as you enter the last age of the game.

Haha. That's retarded. Why would they tie your save files to the disc installs? Or, even if they did, why not give you the option to back them up on uninstall..?

Where is my text-wall? You disappoint me, sir.



I win.
6525  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Sarah Palin is a bitch on: February 08, 2010, 03:48:08 PM
She'll probably run on the newly founded Tea Party and split the Republican base or something.

Anyway, only Mama Sarah Palin can eat cum, mah boi. I'll grab my stuff! There's no time for that, here tak Arthur's pingas.
