1231  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy VII announced for PC, SE Store exclusive with new online features on: July 04, 2012, 07:13:19 PM
No sale if the game still uses shitty MIDI sequenced versions of all the music.

Yeah, he wasn't better in the books. He's flat and uninteresting there, too. His entire function was to serve as a Saren-surrogate, and that was a well-intentioned but misguided goal.

Fact is, TIM and the Reapers were plenty villain enough. They were trying to create a 'personal' conflict like Shep had with Saren, but it fell flat. Saren was an awesome villain because he was sympathetic and also awesomely villainous-- and if you read the books, you realized that he was xenophobic and racist with regards to humanity but not EVIL, and his indoctrination just exacerbated that existing issue. Plus, his voice actor was off the fucking hook.

Kai Leng just consistently did stupid shit for no reason, and could barely beat a critically ill drell (admittedly, that drell was THANEOMGBADASS), but still. Seriously?

ME1 has the best overall plot, but the character interactions just kept getting better. Saren was an incredibly engaging villain who managed to also be sympathetic.

Kai Leng was a horribly written and stupidly cliched attempt at creating Mass Effect 3's Saren. He did nothing, and frequently failed at it. And his hatred for Shepard? The only explanation they could give is 'the writers needed him to hate Shepard, so uh, he does because of fuck you that's why. I really thought he was the worst part of the plot, original ending aside. Even that error-ridden book couldn't make him a less awful character.

Diablo 2. Also Phantom Dust.

Also I'm pretty sure I've beaten Sonic 3 and Knuckles at least 200 times. I see the game and I just can't stop. Same for Kings Quest VI.

I love the extended endings. They fix all of the problems with the original ending, allow the player to question the Catalyst, add scenes to explain stuff like Joker being in FTL travel when the beam hits, and add a new ending.

Anyone who is still complaining about the endings after his is just a whiner now, no joke.

Eh, before I even saw "Indoctrination Theory" I thought what was happening right after
you get hit by the Reaper beam was a dream sequence because the pile of coincidences
and absurdity was too ridiculous and lazy to be real. Apparently I gave them too much credit?

Put me in the "just a whiner" pile.
I think having legitimate problems and not making a big deal out of them is different from complaining, just for the record. :P

Ha, yes, fair enough. Put me in the "this plot gets really silly really fast at the end" pile then.

Same, Dave.

If they just keep remaking FFIX over and over, I'd be happy with that. :)
1237  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Mass Effect 3 (expect ME1&2 spoilers) on: June 22, 2012, 07:11:59 PM
Sounds to me like scenes have been added though the final missions. at 1.9 gb, its gotta be some pretty substantial stuff. Crossing my fingers that they 'clarify' the ending to mean INDOCTRINATION.

Okay, I will!

"You are unpopular among the citizens."

Oh am I now? Maybe this volcano will garner more popularity.

If not, perhaps my alien attack may sway you.
1240  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: E3 Trailers on: June 08, 2012, 04:01:12 PM
I know there's been a lot of debate about E3's lackluster announcements, but has any one really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

What is this I don't even.
1241  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Diablo 3? on: June 07, 2012, 03:13:08 AM
Did I just see Russell Brower conduct And the Heavens Shall Tremble at Video Games Live?

yes. yes I did.
1242  Media / The Soundroom / Re: Mass Effect Soundtracks on: June 02, 2012, 01:51:31 PM
Yeah-- sorry about that! We'll have a Mass Effect special still, but it will be a ME2 extravaganza :)

1 is a lot more synth and Vangelis/sci-fi inspired. 2 and 3 are much more operatic and traditionally epic, with sci-fi flavor. I love all three, but for different reasons.
1243  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Shin Megami Tensei 4 announced for 3DS. on: June 02, 2012, 12:18:02 PM
Honestly, there's nothing the current gen consoles really offers that'll make SMT any better; the games go for stylized art rather than realism and I don't think the current technology would do anything other than smooth out some edges. The PS2 was pretty good at rendering models very close to the original artwork, and we've seen that the handhelds are as powerful as the PS2, if not moreso. Unless you are really just that averse to handhelds, I'd say give this game a chance - it did, after all, JUST get announced.

I think it's a matter of disappintment-- the presentation is SO good in Catherine, I know I was kind of hoping to see a full SMT with that kind of presentation.
1244  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dark Souls on: May 31, 2012, 01:33:44 PM
It's also coming to Steam. YES
1245  Media / The Soundroom / Re: my experimenting in live internet radio on: May 29, 2012, 08:37:28 PM
I am listening. I approve of the music that has been played.
