General Discussions / The unofficial "recommend me a game" thread.
« on: September 07, 2014, 08:00:54 PM »
Klutz made a comment about it in the haps thread and I thought it was a splendid idea to start one up, seeing as the number of games to players is astonishingly huge. Anyways, yeah, make a request for a type of game, and all of us awesome guys and gals here will make a serious endeavor to help you out. I'd like to request, however, that we keep the replies to suggestion away from reasons why you won't play X game suggested. If you say "I'm looking for an rpg" then you don't have a real idea what kind of rpg you want, hence any suggestion (even a really outlandish one) is fair game. This way we don't get hurt feelings about wasting our time and energy offering people suggestions.

Anyways, request away.

So I got alpha access...

HOLY SHIT THIS GAME IS AWESOME.

Seriously, borderlands meets mass effect plus halo. I love it so far, and I gotta say the release can not get here faster. I can't wait to rock this game for real.

Ok, I know it's ballsy of me to ask you all this, and I won't plaster it in a sig to force it harder than I want, but as the topic says, I'm trying to win some free crap in a cell phone game. Game's called Brave Frontier, and if I get 15 friends to like their facebook page, I win. I have made no effort to use facebook for anything and the only friend I have is because I had no means of contacting him outside of it. Anyways, here's the game's facebook page...

Now here's my facebook page

https://m.facebook.com/clark.wayne.94

Again, I know it's ballsy of me to ask this, but I enjoy the game enough to give up some dignity to ask this. Thanks to anyone in advance who helps me out.

Single-Player RPGs / Dungeons and Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara
« on: June 22, 2013, 09:43:48 PM »
So I'm sad no one has mentioned this yet. It was released on xbl and psn this week passing, and consists of both arcade games released years ago, Tower of Doom and Shadows of Mystara. Local and online drop in/out multiplayer, full english text, and new features to be unlocked....it's the perfect pre-dragon's crown workout to get into the swing of side scrolling beat em ups. There's a demo for it up on both systems to give a try.

Ps3 for me though.

My dad is on a mission to ruin a brand new laptop he just bought, and I need to prevent this because I'm not wasting another 400 bucks on a laptop because he of his stupidity and stubborness to do the correct thing. I need something that will prevent him from opening contaminated crap, especially since his stupid fucking ass won't stop using internet explorer. Honestly, I'd like to just take the laptop and sell it so he doean't lose money, but he needs it for "programming" certain devices like vc codecs, sound matrixes, and other similar items. I use the term programming loosely because it mostly requires an rs232 connection or a straight network connection to push programming from the laptop, which is usually just sent from another company or the device manufacturer.

Anything suggested is appreciated.

The Helper Monkey / Tech problem, DNS error.
« on: February 22, 2013, 04:25:33 PM »
So as the topic title suggests, the issue I'm having is a DNS error. It's on my sister's laptop, a lenovo thinkpad (i.e. a piece of shit). I know it's the laptop because I tried connecting my friend's laptop to her newly installed cable modem and he got on immediately, and I reset the modem numerous times during the troubleshooting. To further the issue, I took the laptop to my house and tried connecting online with it and same problem. So for a quick rundown...

I am trying to connect the laptop via a wired connection to the internet and receiving a DNS error, but only through the ethernet port as the wireless works fine. When the ethernet cable is plugged in, the small recognition lights next to the port flicker, showing me it sees the cable, but when I check the status of the connection, it shows no information coming in. I'm thinking the port may have been damaged, but short of pulling the whole thing apart, I can't tell.

What I will ask for here is a way to run maybe a diagnostic on the port itself, or should I just ditch the wired connection, go wireless, and upgrade the laptop instead?

General Games / Aliens: Colonial Marines
« on: January 30, 2013, 09:54:21 PM »
Is it just me, or does this look like a horrible piece of shit? Seriously, it looks like a PS2 game.

Do any of the cast members reprise their roles? Cmon, Michael Biehn is pretty bored lately, and I know Bill Pullman hasn't been doing much since Big Love ended...

Single-Player RPGs / Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch
« on: January 24, 2013, 12:48:51 AM »
Surpised no topic yet, and the original one is sort of outdated, so yeah.

Came out tuesday, and I've been playing it almost non stop. Game's amazing, though it's definitely a familiar feel. Reminds me of Dragon Quest VIII, minus the dragonball characters everywhere. It looks great, it handles well, and the music is pretty nice. I will admit, the voice acting is meh at times, you can tell everyone's English and doing american accents left and right. Drippy's comical in small doses, and thankfully he only talks in cutscenes and not much in battle. Speaking of battle, the battle system is pretty simple to work with, but the level of micromanagement will be astounding later on. The difficulty isn't out of this world, but you quickly start relying on mp and your AI party members eat it faster than you can gather it back. It sort of warrants power leveling early, though once you start getting more familiars, you'll want to try swapping out your current party with the new ones and find your preference, so exp accrual shouldn't be terribly boring. I can't really go much further into detail as I think I'm still not terribly far (15 hours?) and feel that I've barely tapped the surface of the game.

If you're looking for a solid rpg with a huge world and a cutesy overtone, this game is your answer. Also, talk to some of the NPCs, you may get as lucky as I did and come across the single funniest line in a video game...("Yay. Pee-pee time." spoken by a small girl near a tree...laighed for 20 minutes).

General Discussions / Less than absolute zero???
« on: January 05, 2013, 11:19:42 AM »
So apparently, scientists have figured out how to get stuff colder than 0° kelvin (aka "Absolute Zero").

http://newrisingmedia.com/all/2013/1/4/scientists-reach-a-temperature-lower-than-absolute-zero.html

Interesting story, honestly. Feels like the makings of mass effect...

General Discussions / Real Money Traders in MMOs....
« on: December 10, 2012, 08:37:42 AM »
Ok, so I've been playing FFXI for about 2 years now, with 2 years of PSU and a year of random free to play MMOs, and all this time, real money trading haa been a dominate force behind these games. You get people who don't wanna work who are willing to spend money to make progress in games that usually demand effort for rewards, it's no different from real life. Now personally, I've got a sense of honor (???) when I play games. I earn it, I own it, I keep it as a souvenier, but there are others who don't feel this way as strongly, and as a gamer, I feel this has isn't as huge an issue as companies make it to be. On the contrary, I feel that selling an item or service for a real monetary value is ingenious. So why do so many people frown upon it? Even worse, why do companies like Square Enix and Blizzard go so far to stop it? I can understand that as I don't own the game, selling materials amd items I have found in it are not legal, but in that respect, it's my time I am selling, and no company owns it. If I waste 2 years of my life farming a super rare item and then sell that item to a person, I am not selling him the item, but the extended amount of time I used in my life to obtain it. If I spend 6 hours a day farming cheap crap to sell for money that I intend to sell to someone else, why is this so heavily frowned upon? How does it destroy economies in these games? It's no different from a group of players exploiting high prices in a game by camping any and all places to obtain these items and control the price influx, just one merits a person doing this in a financial way. And as insult to injury, some of these companies offer their own variation, selling items or specialized currency in game for real value to obtain certain items or equipment otherwise inaccessible to players (casual players anyway).

Basically, why does it seem to be okay to condemn players who take advantage of lame people who rather pay to win? Even worse, why is it okay for the companies to take advantage of it?
