Heavy Rain is the only game my wife ever asked me to play so she could see what happens next.

Right now I'm 60 hours into it and don't want it to ever end. Absolutely loving it still, to the detriment of getting other new titles that need love and attention the time they deserve.

I didn't get to play Amalur last night and am experiencing some symptoms of withdrawal. I looked under a stack of newspapers in the lobby at work this morning and was dismayed when there wasn't any loot to be found. :-(

I'd never ask someone to go in my place to a midnight release unless I couldn't go/gave them a huge incentive. :P

If you do .... can you pick me up a copy of MLB the Show 12 while you are there? Pleeeease? :-)

Game definitely kept me up last night - only got 5 hours of sleep which is brutal for an old man like me!

Looking forward to getting out of here in a bit and firing it back up!

I thought DA2 sucked, but good grief this is ridiculous.
307  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Kingdoms of Amalur on: February 21, 2012, 03:25:05 PM
That does remain to be seen. However the game I find this reminds me of most is Torchlight insofar as I just love playing it and look forward to playing. I guess to some Torchlight was forgettable in that it had no story and the gameplay by some is considered derivative. What some call "derivative" I call perfected and I still find myself playing Torchlight regularly just for how much FUN it is. I'm getting that same vibe with Amalur, although there are actually some really interesting narrative elements to Amalur that Torchlight does not have.

But it is a possibility - will be difficult to judge the staying power until time has passed.

I'll just weigh in briefly and say this is easily the most FUN I've had with a game since Torchlight. I'm absolutely loving it and would probably have rated it even higher than Stephen did in his review.

I don't think there is anything average about the gameplay in this one at all - the level of customization, the beautiful loot system, the way you can make the game harder or easier for yourself not just with difficulty settings but respeccing to unfamiliar styles - I'm just absolutely loving it.

Well, I'm not a huge fan of Christmas or its commercialization either. I celebrate it but it's typically really low-key. I'm probably abrnormal though - I haven't celebrated a thing in the last six, seven years, not even my birthday. :P

Fair enough. Your next birthday I am making an excuse to par-tay!

Nicely done PM! I also love Valentine's Day. I try to do stuff regularly to let my wife know I care, but Valentine's Day can be an awesome excuse to really go all out. What's not to like about a built in reason to tell somebody you dig them? Obviously you can and should do it other days, but it's just as fun on Valentine's Day.

I wonder why people dig Christmas, which is insanely commercialized by just about every industry on the planet, but there seems to be this more general hatred for Valentine's Day even though it is commercialized by businesses I wouldn't typically think of as being monsters - like flower shops and candy makers as opposed to toy manufacturers.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT - this really got away from me in a hurry.

I had champagne poured, some ridiculous dance movie rented and buffered, and dinner cooking for when my wife got home. I honestly can not remember the last time I cooked anything. I absolutely despise cooking. But it was nice to see the wife so surprised and later relaxed.

She got me a bunch of peanut butter and chocolate candies from my absolute favorite local candy place that makes all its own stuff (http://www.govatoschocolates.com/). I am ashamed to say I ate the entire box.

Anybody doing anything fun?

That random generator in D2? Take that and make it twice as awesome, add in tons of unique items on top of it, and you have Torchlight.
314  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Loot and all about it on: February 13, 2012, 07:13:35 PM
Torchlight = Perfect

I think "dishonest" is the wrong word. Precisely because there are so many mitigating factors, regression analysis seems to me to be the only legit way to isolate the variables here.

Regardless I think it becomes more and more difficult to hold the viewpoint that "piracy doesn't affect sales". I doubt very strongly it is the ONLY reason sales are down, but I am finding it increasingly difficult to believe it plays NO factor.
