If clothes were HIT POINTS right now I'd be in trouble!

I know how you feel, I should be dead by that standard then. 

Uh huh... oh yeah...

So how do you heal in this game? Just put on some new jeans?

Realistically.  That and some Polysporin, an Advil, and some Bandages.  Say "fuck this fucker" to lessen the "stress" points (SP), and a hot dog to recover the "lost nourishment gauge" and you got the quintessential New York City Pick-Me-Up.

Dice and Yoda, you two are fantastic. Thanks for making my day(s).

And you should post more...!

PS - Yoda, Ken Watanabe is thrice the man than any woman.

It's quality not quantity...?

There's only so many orifices on the body anyways.  SO yah, QUALITY, Yoda.  Psssh...

@Leyviur: I'm Commander Shepard and this my favorite post on this topic.

Also, bitches be crazy.

I'd be lying if I said I was tantrum-less.  Please respect my honesty, and know that it was deserved because the fella was also being a jackass.

In the end...I hate being upset.  I do whatever I can to fix it, my fault or not, I hate that "angry" feeling tensing the atmosphere...

Drakengard 1 & 2...

This game is seriously bringing me down though.  Why can't I stop?

The second title is better.

And people like Hamlet too, so...

Does this mean Nier is RPGFan's GoTY? It certainly looks like it.

I compare it more to the "Best New Artist" category in music, for doing something extraordinary; not not the "best song of the year" if you know what I mean.  Then again, "the best" is an arbitrary topic that I just don't like getting into.  To each their own!

Tropes.  They're everywhere.  Sadly, some are to make things more exciting (why is amnesia cool?  It just isn't the same unless our hero feels the surprise like the audience) - but fuck it, speak your mind.

Anyways.  Pick anything.
I'm going with a rather recent one that needs to stop before it gets worse.
I HATE it during a 3D film or trailer when some object deliberately comes at the viewer to "show off" being 3D.  It doesn't feel like an artistically creative choice, more like a good idea that gets moviegoers to brag.  Ranges from stuff like the film title swooping in, or flying debris.  Its soo cheesy

Saw Tron: Legacy last night, and I'm gonna second Dice's review.  I thought it was cool!  Perfect?  Nah.  But worth watching.  My biggest complaint was with the sound.  It was really, really loud.  I wear earplugs at the movies because they're so loud, and there were times when it was too loud even with earplugs in.  Of course, I might blame that partly on the theater.  Also, there were times when the echo and "robot voice" effects were turned up way too high, and I couldn't figure out what was being said, earplugs or no earplugs.

OK, one other minor gripe: if they wanted David Bowie to be a character in the movie, they should have just asked David Bowie to be in the movie!  That guy's up for anything, and he does a good job!  (Remember his cameo in Zoolander?  They just wrote that into the script, then said "Hey, David Bowie - you don't know us, but do you want to be in our movie?"  And he said "Sure!"  Because Bowie is awesome.)

That might just be your threatre.  Some of the ones I'm in are too quiet - which has a way of making comedies less effective, IMO.  Glad you liked Tron too, though.  Definitely not worth any of the bad rap it's getting for I wouldn't even know what..

Wow... I'm just not seeing that at all. I think the game is breathtakingly beautiful. Maybe the polygon count is low, but the lighting is impressive, I love the use of HDR lighting, especially for coming in and out of dark areas. Sure, its exploitation of a common technique, but it's a great effect. Yes, if you look at the individual elements, the resolution is a bit low (grass looks especially low res). But the art design is amazing. It's like Okami... very low resolution stuff, half the objects were 2D, and it was still the most beautiful game of its generation, IMO.

And I happen to like the low-saturation color pallete. It's a nice change of pace from the overly garish tones of most jRPGs. It feels like it's more the color pallete of many wRPGs, but with the design sense of jRPGs. No arguement there.

But yes, if you're looking at strictly polygon count and technical superiority, it's not great. But that doesn't disqualify it from looking unbelievably beautiful. The first time I saw the Arie, I almost cried it was so gorgeous.

I think the poorly detailed environments really do a number against the title.  The music is excellent, and helps make areas more "majestic", but otherwise....

The characters don't look that bad - if anything Nier is just a butt-ugly-caveman.  Kaine gets by and is pleasant to look at, and Emil... well, he's good for half, and Tim Burton's the other effectively.

I think the 3D models have an interesting style, yeah, the pale style that Prime was on about.

maybe he has bad taste?

High five for good tastes!

Hope it doesnt keep happening Lev.  Lord knows I went through a ton of dicks to find a good thing.
8743  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nier on: December 20, 2010, 04:11:43 PM
I'll probably play this after DA2 based on how I'm doing w/ the games I have now.

If it does suck I'm going to Canada on a little vengeance vacation

Bring it, I'll eat you alive.

8744  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Golden Sun Dark Dawn in 10 days on: December 20, 2010, 03:55:49 PM
I don't know.  This game is weird.  There is really a lot to hate on (but hate is too strong a word), but the good, whatever it is, simply overrides it.

That's probably my final verdict on it.
8745  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nier on: December 20, 2010, 03:54:04 PM
Just bought this game today for $15. If it sucks, I'm blaming you guys.

Straight up, gameplay wise, it kinda does (nothing special, anywise) - but it'll leave a helluva mark based on everything else.
