1801  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: FFXIV 2.0 - Holy Shit!? on: November 27, 2012, 12:08:25 PM
That's very simplistic thinking. You're not taking into account the sheer scope of most of their FF projects. The games cost boatloads to produce, develop, amd promote. XIV is probably costing them millio.s of dollars per month to maintain while they work on 2.0, and their other projects. Considering most of their recent ventures have been fairly low end in profit ( how many copies of XIII-2 did they sell worldwide?), and with their aquisition of eidos which probably cost a lot more than they've recovered as of yet, I doubt another catastrophe like XIV would be possible  without squeenix going bankrupt. Granted, I'm basing all my comments here on information I've read from forums and headlines on news sites, but I'd be surprised if my statements are far from accurate.

On the otherhand, assuming XIV 2.0 won't do well just because of the shitstorm of crap.XIV was is a bad assumption. SE's playerbase is dedicated enough to go and try it no matter how god awful it will be. Another benefit is the sheer lack of a good, addictive, current gen console mmo to play. XI os the only option as of now, and seeing as the PS2 support is getting cut soonish, I expect a large number of FF fans jumping ship to XIV. I know I'm gonna give it a shot at ps3 launch, and I spent the better part of 2 years being depressed at how shitty XIV turned out in the first place.

Just bought a turtle beach headset for my xbob. Bestbuy and amazon have the x12 stereo headset for 35 bucks, 25 dollars chraper than normal. Not a bad buy, honestly. Almost tried for the little big planet 2 move bundle at bestbuy, which was 30 bucks for the whole move set and lbp2, but that sold out already online. This is the most black friday stuff I've ever done outside of working at radioshack the day of.

Parn, are you fabulous yet?

So I've been playing this for a couple days now, and I'm very pleased. It's halo in all its glory. The prometheans are less intimadating than the flood, but I felt to at home in this game that ut didn't matter. The new controls sadden me, but they're doable so I don't whine. The amount of weapons, the new enemies, the new vehicles, and the overall feel is so awesome...I love this game.

I recommend playing this on legendary with pals and never look back.

Just ran through the demo on ps3, the camera is clunky, and makes using the demon lift and pulls annoying since you have to actually see the target when using them (for platforming anyway). Outside of that, I like it, being a long time devil may cry fan. The controls take a little getting used to for fluid combo flow, but once I picked up on it, I was getting A ranks fairly fast...not stylish but almost. The design is intriguing, very devil may cry...but more than that. People who bash this game still are just stupid, ninja theory did a damned decent job. I look forward to playing the finished product.

I like earbuds rather than headphones, and I tend to buy Klipsch ones. Not cheap - I got the iPhone compatible ones on sale (I think $80) and they sound good and last me a while. This is my second pair because I got the first caught on something & ruined, but both were pretty good to me.

Iirc, Klipsch are the original makers of headphones.

I like when people have earbuds on and I still hear what they're listening to. If I can hear what you're hearing from earbuds, congrats, they're too loud and you're co.tributing to hearing loss before you're middle aged.

Beats are expensive pieces of shit. Wanna spend 200 dollars on headphones, try sennheiser or sony headphones.

I ran through the game on normal, auto mode. Nothing really gave me much of an issue outside of the party stupidity when it came to using elements enemies absorbed. Drove me nuts at times. I even played some multiplayer to experience everything. Game is definitely better than xenoblade, and Dagren was my favorite character in game. Mirania's eating fetish proved lulzy at times too.

I don't shave anymore because I'm tired of being ID'd when I try to buy booze. I'm 27. I actually argued with a cashier once when they ID'd me and I had left my wallet and ID in a car outside. He refused to believe I was older than he was. I lucked out though when the girl working there recognized me as she is my sister's friend. He apologized, but still didn't believe I was older.

Don't get me started on weight...no one believes I weigh over 350 lbs.

What are friends, really? We all die alone
But we can live on as zombies in agent hunt mode, right?

Skyfall -   I don't understand the orgasm train this flick is riding on, but I'll blame reviewers for what seems like them circle-jerking to it and saying hows it's "the best Bond" or "remaking the franchise".
But nevertheless, a great movie.  I was happy to see a film more focused on M; Judi Dench deserves the love.  Bond Girl #2 had way too much eye makeup half the time, but Bond Girl #1 was wonderful (name slipping, in a rush as I write this).  Good movie, and I loved Bardem while Craig was in top form.
What!? This flick was so mediocre. I'll give credit to Naomie Harris (the first bond lady), and Judi Dench is always a good sell. Even Lord Voldemort was quite interesting in the movie, but the plot was so stale. Reminded me of Die Hard 4, which was bleh too. I liked the characters, especially the villian and that little...scene with bond when they first met. But the story never picked up, and Skyfall itself was a letdown (the term used itself I mean). Craig wins, but the writers should be fired.

Yay, I have friends now!

Eat that, Yodes.

Sweet, i'll accept it later after I get home from the gym.

Not enough weed in the south bronx to make that less freaky...

I think Yoda's just upset because disney's going to sue him for copyright infringement.

That video isn't nearly as.....ok it's pretty accurate.
