Wonder if they have video games in the hereafter?

I got a copy of it real cheap today, so thought I'd give it a try. What server do you guys mainly play on?
What do you mean you got a copy of it? FFXIV? The servers are all closed now while they finish 2.0.

The Hobbit:
I liked it. Even watched it in the higher frame rate and 3D. It was interesting to see certain things like how Bilbo obtained the ring (obviously), and how Gandalf obtained his sword. Frodo's cameo was lame, obviously just a moment for Elijah Wood to make some money and generate interest in his career since he's been so busy since, right? I'm a little bothered at how normal most of the (important) dwarves looked though. Just seemed....cheap I guess. It's also sad to see how old Ian Mckellan looks in this movie. With those nitpicks mentioned, the movie was well done. The fight scenes were astounding in the higher frame rate, like watching a video game cutscene. The story waa eaay to follow, and everyone was very eaay to understand. In the previous movies, I could barely understand Gandalf at times, and Aragorn talmed like some emo kid, whispered everywhere...and don't get me started on the other hobbits. The one thing I have to warn about is DON'T MISS THE SMEAGLE AND BILBO HAPPY FUNTIME GAME. It's funny. Also, since when was it required to have 3 years theatrical singing experience to join a party for an adventure? (watch the film, you'll get the joke)

Did Christopher Lee lose like a shitload of weight?

Honestly, you should battle througb, even if its boring as fuck. I suggest using the power wheel more, as it does stop everything around you and let you aim and I.D. targets that you can hit with squad powers. If it really doean't help enough, you can change the difficulty down to easy for the fight...

The point is you need to experience the first game to develop your own shepard. It will be worth it in the end, Alisha.

Man, do you know how many fingers I would give to have a saga remake? 6, cuz I only need 4 to play the game.

What's even better about it is that video games are just interactive forms of the tv shows we watch. In theory, tv is the culprit behind video games...and who controls tv? The same people who damn video games. Obviously, corporate bigwigs are tired of video games cutting in on profits to be made off network television.

Well, not all of us make it so glamorous, but yes.

Pfft, what do you know, you're just a girl. Get back in the kitchen and make some babies.

Title update is live, adds camera option, ada coop partner, and some lameness about subtitles, idk.

In regards to desert walker's post, I looked at that anita sarkeesian video, and I want to ask this...

In all the time most of us have played video games, and all the groups of people we've been affiliated with, how often is a woman actually attacked for being a girl playing a video game? Seriously, on video game forums, you see guys offering to do things for them in games (Phantasy Star Universe comes to mind), in games I generally see internet paladins crusading to defend girls from nerds who are overly attentive (offering to power level, get items, offer boosting, etc), but RARELY do I see any harassment outside of the occasional pic request. Even here, I've seen little to no objectification of the ladies, though Yoda and Dice do get a little borderline pervy. I'm accusing this lady of it, but do you think that maybe some of this excessive harassment is trumped up for attention? If a feminist has no cause, she's basically just a whiny lady... But if some "heathen" assaults her, everyone is up in arms to help her out.

Personally, I'm all for what she's talking about. Women get a serious bum rap in most games, and when they're supposed to be taken seriously, you get someone like Lightning who's just a male narcissist with an awesome figure for most of the game, essentially being what you're fighting against. However, my experience playing games and being submerged in video game culture has lead me to believe that situations like hers are the minority, not the majority.

Inb4"D's sexist!?"

Drunk driver hit us, everything is covered.
I hope you sue the pants off the fucker. Friend of mine's mother was hut by a drunk driver recently, she's unable to walk til probably after february, and that's going to be thanks to loads of physical therapy. Personally, I'd like to see the scumbag serve time, but that's just me. Take evrry cent he's got, and make sure he never has money to drink again.

The U.S. Should implement a law where if you've ever been convicted of a D.U.I. your license is to updated with a note or mark that makes it illegal for you to buy alcohol. There are enough assholes we can't control, at least adding some deterrence could help slow the influx of new ones.

So CNN directs an angry mob to the wrong person's Facebook account and the mob notices that person (the wrong person...) liked Mass Effect.  Since it's obvious that liking a video game is indisputable evidence that the game is the sole motivating factor behind any horrible acts of violence you (or in this case, someone else...) commit, the angry mob starts  harassing Bioware telling them to burn in hell.

Yup, this is where society is at.
I seriously hope one day, a significantly important figure in government who helps resolve a disastrous problem using peaceful methods blames video games for his desire to avoid conflict. 23 years of playing video games and all I've ever wished to do because of them is heroic deeds.

My favorite is how of ALL fucking video games to blame for mass murder, they use Mass Effect 3, a game where you are trying to save the lives of galaxies worth of people. You go so far as to sacrifice yourself to end a conflict, but yeah, ME3 promotes killing innocent kids. He must have thought they were Volus, right?

In ME1, you want to play the caster one (Adept?).
It is so incredibly broken it's amazing.
In the higher difficulties, this is accurate because powers did more damage then ammunition. However, soldier class generally tore through easy and normal, and even hard with no trouble. Just need to stay on top of your weaponry.

Yggdrasil, if I were gay, I'd love you.

...screw it, I can love you and women too.

Holy shit if I don't get an english version of this I will punch a puppy
