I'm still loosely following the updates they're doing from time to time and my feelings towards them is generally positive. I do want to give this game another try in the future when it's "ready".

Although you have to wonder how long the game is going to be in the red. The fact they are still working on it and getting almost no revenue is pretty dangerous.
Yeah, I dunno. I mean, it's Square Enix it would (maybe) be safe to assume have the cash reserves to be literally bleeding money on this for a bit. It's certainly an, um, interesting scenario to say the least.

I don't think that taunting back like that paints your side of sorts in any more of a favorable light. Just saying.

To make this post not entirely worthless, I'm still loosely following the updates they're doing from time to time and my feelings towards them is generally positive. I do want to give this game another try in the future when it's "ready".

Destructoid have a preview from Gamescom.

It all sounds really wonderful, but

Quote
Dark Souls incorporates what they call the "covenant system," a sort of guild-like structure that has players swearing allegiance by oath to God-like bosses they find in their travels. With allegiance sworn, the player will be bestowed with certain powers and/or attributes that will help them overcome the game's many perils.

How this covenant system plays into multiplayer really depends on whom you've sworn allegiance to. When playing the game in its online state, players of the same allegiance will benefit from each other with what was only described as something truly sensational, the Miracle Resonance.

How the Miracle Resonance works or what it actually does still remains a secret, as does much of Dark Souls, but isn't half the fun of the game discovering every last detail for yourself?

sounds quite interesting in particular.

I read this quite some time back, but it's pretty wonderful, yes.

I could have sworn that Oblivion's world was created by running a random-generating sort of thing. This was from interviews/previews prior to its launch, at that. I don't exactly have any source for what I am claiming, so I'd be interested in actually reading one to set this straight.

I think that, barring games where it wouldn't make sense from a practical or design perspective, the seeing enemies on the field thing that games such as Persona 3/4 and Radiant Historia do is a far better option. Pretty much just because random encounters can be obnoxious and having a bit of control over if you want to engage in fights or not is nice.

I saw Sabaton and Accept the weekend before last. Had a fun time.

"The monthly subscription fee means players can expect a lot of new content from us. And I say a lot -- I really mean that. This is something that we feel obligated to the players, because they are paying a monthly sub fee." -John Smedley

cool guy.

There's currently an open beta on steam (anyone can play - just need a steam account) running until noon PST this Friday.

As cool as talking about penises is, the wiki / forums of Eorzeapedia and FFXIVCore might be helpful. Or they might be full of misinformation and douchebags - I haven't been to either in a few months.

For the few that actually follow the game or are still on the fence. This may interest you.
Letters from the Producer and Poll Feedback

I'm incredibly happy to read all of this.
87  Media / The Soundroom / Re: In the spirit of the best of 2010, what are some of your favorite albums of 2010 on: December 25, 2010, 09:23:30 PM
I dunno how much I could realistically rank the stuff I've liked, so I'm going to just list everything from this year I enjoyed since it's not an enormous amount of releases anyways.

Agalloch - Marrow Of The Spirit
Age of Taurus - In The Days Of The Taurean Empire
Atlantean Kodex - The Golden Bough
Briton Rites - For Mircalla
Demontage - The Principal Extinction
Jon Lajoie - I Kill People (this counts, right?)
Pallbearer - 2010 Demo
Sigh - Scenes From Hell
Slough Feg - The Animal Spirits
The Wizar'd - Pathways Into Darkness
Triptykon - Eparistera Daimones
Wheel - Wheel

Might I ask what board that is, Britton? Also seeing the list would be cool, I generally enjoy viewing those. [edit: just saw the thread in this subforum...] I enjoyed the album well enough as I said, I'm just not sure if it'll still get as many listens as, say, Pale Folklore still does. Also regarding Sabbat, I assume you mean the UK one given the context. I really couldn't stand Martin Walkyier's vocals when I tried giving Dreamweaver a listen...

I really enjoyed Sigh's Scenes From Hell as well, Dincrest. Apparently they're aiming to have another one out next year if I remember right.
89  Media / The Soundroom / Re: Anyone here into the more underground metal? on: December 11, 2010, 01:44:29 AM
I'm more into doom and heavy/speed/power as far as metal goes.

The new Agalloch album was cool though, I guess. I enjoyed it and all but I'm questioning how it will stand the test of time. The production was sort of strange for them.

Cauldron Born - Blood Bath In The Arena

I'm liking this album a good deal as I give it more listens. The drums are not (as?) clicky as they are on the prior one.

Oh, and "Bury Me an Angel" by Arch Enemy.  Here comes the big question: Liiva or Angela?

I already felt Johan [era material] was superior, but those rerecordings were atrocious in the vocal department.
