Welp. I love you.

I don't understand the love people are giving him on Twitter and in that gaf thread.

It's probably kinda like watching Harlan Ellison, where you know the guy's an asshole yet he's incredibly amusing to watch when it's not directed towards you.

That's actually a pretty good assessment.

Yeah, MOST enemies respawn... fortunately not the Black Knights or some of the super rats or megahedgehogs.

Kamiya is being a complete douche. Kotaku are ALWAYS dumbasses. That's no reason to start attacking foreigners and being a complete prick. He could have just... you know, ignored them? He's right that he doesn't represent Japanese gaming as a whole, and Kotaku's post was stupid and sensational, but that's no excuse for how vitriolic he became. It's like someone getting pissed that there was a stupid sensational headline on Enquirer. You expect these things from these outlets.

 I don't understand the love people are giving him on Twitter and in that gaf thread. So he said Kotaku sucks? He has joined the ranks of nearly everyone that has ever read the site.

Kotaku does suck though.

Do you think the average stormtrooper knows how to install a toilet main? All he knows is killing in white uniforms.

Those poor contractors.

I personally thought it was incredibly well-done. I'd rather have no dialogue than bad dialogue. The fact that we've already seen the "End of an Era" bit doesn't make it any less impressive. It probably would've had more of an impact if they had released it all at once, but either way, I'm satisfied. Super hyped for this.


Still standing by my opinion. Is it cool? Yes. Could it have been much better? Most definitely. There's no real cohesiveness in the aftermath footage, which after the apocalypse just doesn't flow right for me. Grand companies riding >flash>Circle of Knowing NPCs> flash> Odin > flash > Behemoth + Crystal Tower > flash > Adventurers appear > muted dialogue from Rogaedyn Paladin > flash > Chocobos from nowhere > Riding off towards strange new landmark that is poorly visible due to oversized logo. What exactly does that tell anyone?

Probably the biggest offender is the fact that they kept the majority of the End of an Era trailer totally secret, and now we get an extended version with "new" footage that was already spotlighted in nearly 3 earlier trailers with next to no cohesion. There's perhaps 15 seconds of actually new footage in an almost 9 minute long trailer. That's just lazy.

I agree with Derek. It's an MMO intro-- it isn't meant to tell you anything. It's meant to look pretty and be full of meaningless crap. See: every WoW intro. At least this one made me think FINAL FANTASY!

I actually thought the song was awesome and fitting the 80's/90's cyberpunk theme. If nothing else, this game has the style down to a T.

Dead Heat.

I can appreciate the opposite opinion of mine, but I believe that Bethesda employs 'quantity over quality.' Building a giant world with lore is certainly an achievement, but I've never felt like Bethesda's TES games are that compelling. The repetitive dungeons and sort of meaningless feeling to everything really cut my enjoyment short. I can usually get some hours out of the joy of exploration and finding stuff, but eventually the seams start to show and I start to feel as if everything has been assembly-lined.

I don't think Bioware is perfect either, but I was more commenting on the fact that any increase in similarity between DA and TES going forward is because Skyrim sold like pre-buttered pancakes and EA took notice, not out of some "brilliant spark of ingenuity."

I'm done with PvP, it sucks and don't know how many times I've tried to find some enjoyent out of this system but the mechanics are build for the game to be played mainly on PvE not on PvP.

So yeah, fuck it I'm done.

That's a bummer, I really have been enjoying PvP. It's usually pretty damn thrilling when someone invades and I beat their ass. Or get my ass beaten. Still, I love it. It's a bit finicky, but if you keep yourself around SL 100-135 and didn't just go bonkers with your build, you should be able to fight people at a similar level of strength and get some good fights.

The fact that Zack and Zidane, two of my favorite male characters in the series, are in the top three automatically makes that list awesome. Thumbs up, Japan.

Yes.

I just recently started messing around with two-handed weapons. Hitting a guy with the heavy Dragon's Tooth attack makes me laugh every time. SPLAT.
1048  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dark Souls 2 on: December 21, 2012, 08:39:32 PM
I am highly excite.
1049  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance on: December 20, 2012, 07:40:14 PM
Yeah, exactly. And it's not that I think they're bad outright, it's just a kind of style that doesn't appeal to me. Sort of like how I love the Uncharted series, but I can appreciate why someone else wouldn't. It's scratches a very particular itch.
It's like people who bitch about professional-level tactics in fighting games. Sure, there's room for people who enjoy that kind of experience, I'm just not one of them.

Not sure where I was hating on anyone. In both of my comments I said "there's an appeal here, but it isn't for me." You're obviously just looking for an argument, but you're not going to get one from me.
1050  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: NEW MEGAMAN on: December 18, 2012, 07:23:21 PM
Yeah, it's not amazing, but it's more Megaman than we've had. I'll accept it as a free token of goodwill from Capcom.
