811  The Rest / General Discussions / What's The Most Embarrassing Game You Have Bought? on: November 05, 2010, 03:40:22 AM
I work in a gaming retail store and I love watching customers who seem nervous or anxious about buying some kiddie or 'embarrassing' games. Of course there are still the people who chuck Playboy: The Mansion and BMXXX on the counter without a care in the world. Ha ha.

What are some games you have been too embarrassed to buy, or games you have bought that you think are embarrassing?

For me, I can think of a few that I've bought (though I don't get embarrassed really): Kira Kira Pop Princess--which is actually awesome (but the guy who sold it to me gave me a look of "WTF?"), Dead or Alive Xtreme 2--I, uh, bought it for the, uh, volleyball.... *cough*

Ironically, I once bought a couple of eroges from an anime convention (though I usually get em online) and I held them proudly as I took a train and a bus home in peak hour traffic. Got a few stares, but totally didn't bother me...

Doesn't surprise me. I like some girly stuff anyway. :P

But regardless of gender, The Longest Journey was awesome.

I lol'd.

That's quite funny, Dice. And the art is great!

You forgot to add the girls three sizes though.... lol.

While I haven't played it yet, Amnesia: The Dark Descent looks rather spooky and unique. And it's on sale on Steam for Halloween! :D

I'd seen that one too. Looks very interesting. Thanks for reminding me!

I'll throw in Dreamfall and The Longest Journey. You'll probably enjoy these if you like good characters/story/world

Played both of them. Two of my favourite games of all time.

Ahh, Snowboard Kids. I LOVED them so much. But then they had to go and make that horrible DS game.

Conker's I have played, and really enjoyed. Though I remember something about taking a lot of damage from falling even if you weren't up all that high.
816  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Recommendations for Unusual and/or Unique Games on: October 30, 2010, 07:07:41 PM
Thanks guys. Lots of good suggestions!

Already played Katamari, and love the series. Same with Jet Set Radio. Space Channel 5 I haven't and I'm going to take a look into it.

But, I must say:

If you want both unique and unusual, you need look no further than The Void.  If only I didn't completely suck at it. :P

This one really grabbed my attention. The trailer looked awesome, but I still have no idea what the game is about. I better go wiki it! :P

I'm just not gonna comment on Idea Factory. Like a lot of other reviewers on the site, I think you guys can guess where I stand.

But damn those environments look bland. But maybe I'm just looking at the worst screenshots.

I've been trying to find something (of any genre) that is quite unique or has a rather unusual story/setting/characters or whatever in terms of content. I don't know how much sense that makes, so here are some examples:

-- Demon's Souls
-- Machinarium
-- Valkyrie Profile
-- The Path
-- GrimGrimoire
-- Odin Sphere
-- Ico
-- PoPoLoCrois
-- Shadow of the Colossus
-- Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
-- Alan Wake (Not unique, but has the kind of story I'm into)

For those of you more anime-inclined I'm talking about something like Bakemonogatari or Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni.

I know all those games cover quite a bit, but can you guys recommend me anything that I might enjoy having loved those?
819  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: what are your top five consoles of all time on: October 29, 2010, 05:42:25 PM
Mine are pretty much based on how much fun I had while playing games on the system.

1) GBA
2) PS2
3) GC
4) N64
5) PS3

Note I never owned a NES or SNES. Otherwise they'd probably be up there.

I however, don't believe in revenge killings.

Gotta agree. While I'm right on board with what you think Neal, I'm against the death penalty.

That being said, she does deserve, otherwise, the harshest possible punishment.

Just bought my copy today. I've only played about 2 hours, but it's not really grabbing me yet. Not a big fan of the level design so far. But I'll play for longer and give it more of a chance.
822  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGs for beginners on: October 26, 2010, 09:28:10 AM
Glad to see you getting into RPGs!

Just be prepared, a couple of posts back when you listed the RPGs you'll probably get... that is years worth of gaming right there. Heck, I have a backlog of RPGs nearly a mile high and I've been playing them heavily for the past eight or so years!
823  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Successful MMO economies on: October 26, 2010, 09:19:33 AM
Yup, spot on.

Though it seems new players are harder to find nowadays (though maybe they just don't stick out as much). And those that are new usually aren't A) savvy enough to think about stuff like that, B) Actually need the cloth themselves or C) don't have the confidence/knowledge to play the market game.

Heck, I've played WoW for a long time and I still don't have the confidence to 'play the market'. Sure, I sell stuff on the AH, but I've never tried to buyout stuff and resell it. I'd rather just quest for the gold. I like that more anyway.
824  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Successful MMO economies on: October 26, 2010, 08:43:48 AM
Warcraft certainly has player driven economies, but on most servers the prices are highly inflated. Primarily due to money being more readily available at higher levels and people realise players with high level characters often have a lot of gold to spend on their lower level characters and are too lazy to get said items themselves.

I know a few people on the server I play on who put almost all their time into making money off the auction house. They buy out specific items then re-list them at higher prices. One guy especially pretty much dominates all the cloth on the market.

What is with the huge-ass delay for this game in the EU? :(

Agreed. It's TBA 2011 for Australia.
