It's funny, he's dense as shit til literally the end of the game, then out of nowhere he fucking knows EVERYTHING.

As much as I hate GTA as a series, seriously, how many times do you actually stop amd shoot random pedestrians? Generally, you beat the shit out of them, ran them over, or (in my case) left them in the car and drove the car off a ledge. The only time people used guns to kill in GTA was when you were battling people who ALSO had guns, forcing you to defend yourself.

I ask you, when was the last time you had a super case of mass murders because of road rage on the news? How about a murderer running around with a chainsaw, katana, baseball bat, or freaking minigun? In the same regard, since these people love mentioning how you kill innocent people in these violent video games, how many times do you hunt down and kill unarmed people? You fight fire with fire in these games, and generally you're awarded for non-violent action in most of these games, like metal gear or splinter cell. Call of Duty, as much as I hate it, glorified fighting terrorists, not shooting innocent people. You were always tasked with defending lives from psychos, not being the psycho. And before anyone can argue multiplayer, in multiplayer everyone else has guns and are fighting you. Now having been experienced in firing a gun recently, I can safely say the only thing I learned from a video game was how to line up a shot. You don't learn about releasing a safety, reloading, recoil (outside of it messing up follow up shots), or even the proper way to stand while holding a gun to prevent your ass from falling over. You learn that from watching movies and tv shows far more effectively.

It's embarassing to see how stupid people are regarding video games as a means of violence, simply because of the lack of their knowledge of how they operate. It's equally embarassing how to know that 3-4 notorious video games have given the whole entertainment genre a bad rep. I mean cmon, Super Mario Brothers is the leading cause of the extinction of certain large turtles...all those fat kids jumping on them. Where's the outcry from peta?

How does this game have a soundtrack? I swear, every song I heard was a rehash of the same track just with different notes and an adjusted melody.

Don't get me wrong, it was pretty nice for what it was, which was THE SAME DAMN TRACK EVERYHWERE.

12 days of no exercise sucked. Hit the gym FINALLY today, and hard, albeit safely. I didn't go for my usual high numbers, only capped on 225 on the bench today (all chest) and a couple complimentary exercises, but I did more sets on the bench than normal.

...Didn't help.that I got to the gym at 7:30 and they close at 9 :(

I was sick most of last week, so I waan't doing much outside of laying down and relaxing, so it made playing the game pretty easy. But to be honest, I have a pretty bad addiction to games, when I start a new one, unless it sucks balls I have trouble tearing myself away from it til I either A: beat it or B: find myself at a clean breakoff point where nothing extremely important is about to happen or is happening. I remember having beaten FFXIII in like 6 days, which was fairly impressive according to most people I knew (the fact that I actually beat it, most gave up due to sheer hate, loool).

You wanna talk about demonic dedication to a game? When MGS4 was released, I was working at a game store. I got the game the day before it was released, brought it home after installing it on my ps3 while at work, and proceeded to marathon it from 8pm that evening to 11:16am that next morning, 2 liter bottle of iced tea next to me and a small pizza to go through the night.  2 minutes after I beat the game, I walked to my phone, called my boss and told him I was not coming in that morning, see him tomorrow. He reminded me I wasn't working that day anyway, so I said oh good, hung up, went to my bed, and fell right to sleep. Best 15 hour marathon ever!

The grinding factor in this game is pretty beans. It'd be nice if you could have gotten equipment that enhances drop rates or got a steal skill on familiars maybe, the fact that only 1 person can steal items sucks, especially when you take into account that even 40 levels over some enemies, the humans seem to just eat it eay worse.

Speaking of human characters, WHAT THE FUCK was the point of *SECRET 4TH PARTY MEMBER" joining you? He's got the same spells as Oliver, does less damage with them, and is a wasted spot because no one wants 2 Olivers. Why would you give us an inferior version of the main mage when yoi could have given us another thief or another play to use serenade in that (not so) rare circumstance when number 2 is dead? It's just silly, if you ask me.

Seriously, first she complained about me not selling it ther kid, which I explained was against the law, then wanted a refund when she found out that her 11 year old son was plowing a hooker in his car in the game.

Wait, you in Canada or another country not the USA? Because it's technically legal to sell here (I don't think any attempted law actually passed and got enforced), but it'd get you fired at most places so it's not really that much better for you anyway.
My boss at the time (owner of the store) was a cop and he told me he could get fined for selling mature titles to underage consumers, similarly to selling pornographic magazines to kids. I just looked at the esrb website, though, and as of a ruling in 2011, it's unconstitutional to make selling mature+ rated games to minors illegal, so yeah, I guess I was just being scared into submission, so to speak. I wouldn't have sold it to a kid even if it was okay, as gta is not a series for children to be playing. Personally, I think gta is a great excuse as to why video games get such a bum rep. I have plenty of friends who sell drugs and have had a gun pointed at me twice in my life, why in the name of all hell would I want to play a video game where I can experience that?

Just beat the game, now messing around in post game, bounties and quests a plenty. The final boss was pretty cake, but I was SERIOUSLY overleveled (heroes are all 80+). Overall, I give the game a solid 8.5. The gameplay was fun, but the tame rate for creatures sucks way too much, especially when you're trying to catch them for quests. All the excess attempts caused a bit of a level spike, making everything pitifully easy. The story is great, but it starts to become pretty easy to see coming, and I didn't like how they pulled the old 80% of the game villian is in fact not the major villian baloney, it always sours my taste buds (though it does get surprising at the absolute last second though, I chuckled for it). The music was catchy....til you realize that there is only 1 fucking song playing the whole game. Sort of a late kick in the balls, but I'll eat it. Honestly, my gripes are miniscule regarding the game, Level-5 did a great job making an old rpg here, and I'm gonna use the term old because this is an rpg of olden days. Fuck the wrpgs and jrpgs of today, they're both crappy 9 times out of 10. This reminded me of games like chrono cross, ffvii, pokemon, and so forth. So much freedom to explore, places to go, stuff to do. I was always occupied with this game, and had to force myself away at times to relax and level out from gaming. Last time I did that was probably FFIX or X. This is easily my most enjoyed week and a half in years, and I spent most of it sick and achey.

One suggestion for anyone who is still on the fence or even just starting, take the time to read everything and not speed past it. The language used is quite entertaining, especially the fairies' english slang. It's downright comical at times.

I'm cautiously optimistic with this game. I don't wanna pre-order, hoping for a demo. I remember with Left 4 Dead, I was still on the fence until I played it and then I loved it. I'm hoping its the same for this title.
Completely off topic, but Tunnels, who is the girl in your avatar photo? I know I've seen her before, but I can't remember.

There was that one SNES/Sega Genesis AvP game where you played as the predator. GOD that game was balls hard.

Adam Sessler was one of the hosts on X-play, back when G4TV actually still did video game stuff. He was always the more realistic of the two hosts, so I generally enjoyed his views on games they reviewed, but Morgan Webb (host #2) was hot....so yeah.
1814  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Aliens: Colonial Marines on: January 30, 2013, 10:58:07 PM
I agree, but this looks very....rushed. There have been a few commercials on lately regarding it, and I am significantly unimpressed. Not like with Dead Space 3, GODDAMN IT LOOKS AMAZING. Hopefully it's not too shitty, but I'm not getting excited.
1815  Media / Miscellaneous 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...
