I wouldn't be surprised if it sold.

Regrettably.
8027  The Rest / General Discussions / Wow... this is a surprise. on: October 20, 2007, 02:39:30 PM
It's not that much of a surprise.

remember when ea used to actually make games instead of just buying other companies to do it for them

i bet they'll try buying consoles next, in which case i'll have to give up on gaming entirely and rely on my only other hobby:

Lunar isn't hard. It's just a level fest. Same for Ys 1, except less so.

XG is only hard if for whatever reason you don't get enough deathblows for Fei for him to be able to go into hypermode with his mech or whatever it is, and everyone else is too underlevelled to take out more than one of the spinny things around deus.

Alisha's not trolling. He's just not very bright.

i liked the 50+ encounters in M&m 6 and 7 because you could play in real time and if you were powerful enough it was just like jesus christ awesome.

apparently wanted to create a realistic growth system with the license board.


That's... that's almost as nonsensically wacky as Crab Battle. I mean, there are potentially ways to make the licnese board realistic or something which I'm not getting into because absolutely none of them apply at all to FFXII. [/quote]

I just noticed that if I turn my head sideways it gets very difficult to read text.

In any case, the Zodiac Spear and getting it was a very, very dumb 'sidequest' if we can, for a second, NOT relegate it to the realm of 'easter egg.'

i'm just listing things.

Baldur's Gate 2 - Levelling up helps but not immensely so. Finding uber equipment isn't easy. If you don't use your spells constantly YOU WILL DIE and a lot of the strategy involves forcing enemies into bottlenecks and things, for instance.

the unreal world - if the sole point of the game is to survive, and if the entire game is BUILT around making this process interesting and varied and deadly, then usually the game won't be easy.

nethack - people play it for years and never beat it. people also play it for years and get killed by things they never knew even existed. this is the sort of thing i have wet dreams about roberta williams having wet dreams about.

dragon wars - this game lets you start over with your same characters and retained levels and skills because it's so hard that you might get stuck in a place where you can't get out of. this is practically the SOL system before the soul system existed. it also has the same sort of HP system wasteland had.

wasteland - just the theme makes it sound dangerous. it's like two horny squids in a tank fighting over the squid equivalent of roberta williams. with knives. lots of enemies. lots of enemies that kill you fast. permanent character death. hard to find weapons and ammo (this aint no fallout. this aint no fallout 2. this aint no foolin' around). and the hp system i mentioned. You have stamina points, which go up with level. As you take damage, they decrease. When they get low enough, you start taking actual damage (although sometimes you do this before your stamina hits zero, like if a certain take is really powerful). if stamina is zero, you pass out. anyway, physical damage is bad, because you have to treat it or even outside of combat the condition gets progressively worse. i think having armor can prevent the chances of taking damage like that, but armor is rare.

General crap, I guess. This is my 'blog post' on the new album becaues i don't have a goddamn blog because I'm not some starbucks drinking hippie (even though I drink at starbucks and eat my hippie).

---

Actually, no. I'm just going to say I like the bends a lot mor ethan ok computer, don't really like ok computer as much as I used to, and I thought the band really hit their creative stride with Kid A and amnesiac and because of this I am happy that in rainbows is a return to that sound, but with a lot of the same fun and easyness that the bends had.

they do totally have a full band sound that httt was lacking. not going down the 'thom yorke hijacked the badn!!11' route with that. more like it sounded like each member wrote their own album, and then they just all played them at the same time.


---edit 3 -----

Also as someone else noted in something somewhere sometime (kto-to shto-to gdje-to inogda) the songs are about people and relationships. Not, say, narrative songs so much, but not as incredibly abstract as they could get on their prior albums.

---edit 2---

also calling it some experimental way of releasing the album is very silly because radiohead's hardly the first to do it, so it's more, "well gee the thing's done, so we could keep waiting to release it and not get paid and make the fans sad, or we could release it next week and make the fans happy and get some money."

i think i would've been happier if you had all of the gambits from the get-go. Making them things you found never... never really added anything, in my eyes.
