I was pretty shocked by that myself. That's what such a short turn-around time will get us, I guess.

Rob schools nothing. I had a mostly positive impression of the game anyway. More importantly, the power of love is heavily embedded into this podcast.

I actually never played King's Quest, so I really can't speak to it.  That said, I'm always looking for an excuse to rip on Stephen when it comes to KH.

And once again, I can't say how much I love to read the support you guys give the show on the boards.  We weren't even sure if anyone was listening to the show besides the editors and Ivalice Alliance.  Glad you guys are enjoying it!

Rob, I love the series but I can usually agree with the criticisms you level at KH, despite still enjoying them. King's Quest is beyond criticism because as a series it is completely perfect. Bold statement, I know-- but it is. :)

And I've gotta second his love of you guys and your support. I have a blast doing the podcast and knowing that we have an audience is excellent.

I will be the first to admit my bias towards Kingdom Hearts and anything relating to the King's Quest series.

Honestly, I'm of the opinion that Bioware left pausing and other "strategic" options in the game just to please people who might be upset about the new direction. I didn't find that any strategy was necessary at all (in the demo, at least). I didn't pause, and basically just spammed through my skills then mashed the attack button until the cooldown wore off. That said, I did find the game pretty enjoyable, and the stats and inventory  (at least, the LOCKED screen) seems to show that there's a full suite of customization options that will be available in the full game. Pretty much, if the full game is like the demo, combat is mindless but mildly entertaining and not at all in the same vein as DAO.

Also, side note: Targeting is an absolute nightmare on consoles. Shuffling through 10+ targets was the only time I had to pause, and it was just so I could convince the game to target what I wanted it to.

I just finished playing the demo on PS3 and PC. You auto-attack by right clicking on enemies. On consoles, this isn't as much of an issue because it gives you the illusion that you're playing an action RPG. On PC, the reduced number of skills basically means you're watching most of the fight. It's a lot like KOTOR, honestly. It's enjoyable, but I if we're gonna bitch at FFXIII for having linear paths through areas, I'd better hear bitching at this game for the same, unless it opens up later. It's virtually identical.

The 'bullshit' in the beginning stuck out, too. They're trying to sell it to dudebros.

Still a pretty good demo though. I'm actually interested in the series now.

I have RH and have played a few hours of it. You'll definitely be getting impressions, because it's fucking awesome.

Thanks for the comments, guys. Rob's laugh is now his text message sound on my phone. YESSS.

Also, FFXIII is awesome.

Maybe you should expand on why it ruins the point of an RPG for you, then.

For me I don't see how first person ruins it, in fact in some ways it helps, like Eusis' #1 point there.

As long as I can do a nonlethal stealth playthrough, I'll be happy. I just beat the first one for the first time last week and HU-DAMN. awesome game.
Lethal for me, kthx. I'm apparently violent anyway.

I don't mind violence, but you never know who you're killing. That was one of my absolute favorite parts of the original DX-- finding strategic ways to approach situations to not kill anyone making use of the limited nonlethal arsenal. This new one just makes it look like it'll be even better.

That said, I don't mind the first person perspective. It helps me drop myself into the character, which is exactly how I think games like this should be played. If I were JCD or Adam Jensen, I would try to take as few lives as possible, and these games allow me to play that role.

I can go with this celebration. Bigger, better Demon's Souls is something good for every boy and girl.
1408  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dark Souls on: February 08, 2011, 02:45:03 PM
Yeah, there are at least 2 editors on staff that absolutely love Demon's Souls  (one of them being moi), and Project Dark/Dark Souls (which is now one of my most anticipated games) had no mention for months, and slipped under the radar. It sounds like you are insinuating that we intentionally left it off the list because we aren't looking forward to it or something, but that's a silly notion.

That pile of shame will become your pile of joy. DDS2 is absolutely incredible. And we're actually considering doing this. We ALL picked up the original Deus Ex on steam sale a few weeks ago, so maybe something will happen with that!

I've always been a huge fan of MQ's soundtrack... the final boss song is so epic. I had an album once called Preludio: Final Fantasy, and for the life of me I can't find it anywhere now. It had an awesome MQ remix on there.
