That is great to hear. I was worried that it would be too easy. Thanks to the both of you. Guessing that abusing the village would break the game but it would kind of be your own fault if you do. Tempted to buy it now and play it over Christmas.


You know, because I can.

How is the difficulty in the game? The demo wasn't that hard once you got some equipment but the boss fights were decent challenges.

Insidious -

It starts out as a pretty typical Haunted house type movie, with a decently creepy vibe. The about halfway through they introduce some elements which tell me that they were trying to differentiate themselves from the typical haunted house flik. Unfortunately, all it does is add layers of confusion on top of simplicity. Add in people doing incredibly stupid things, and there is really nothing special about this movie. Plus, the ending was lame, and way too blatant about setting up a sequel.


Not a huge fan of the movie myself. The two ghostbusters were probably the highlight of it for me. They didn't really fit in with the tone of the first half but were fun to watch.

Code:
I thought the idea of the old woman slowly getting closer to the father in all those photographs would have been a lot more interesting to watch than the carnival of horrors they went with.

Going to attempt the twelve pubs of Christmas on Monday with some friends. Kind of looking forward to it. Haven't seen some of these people in a long time.

Hoping to see these three even though I would say it is extremely unlikely. Although I doubt it was Dimitri, that monster in the vid looked kind of like a Dodongo. Don't think there are monster equivalents to Moosh or Ricky.

Sorry for the triple post. I don't know if editing the last post bumps the thread or not. I don't think it does. Wouldn't have done it if the sale lasted longer than today.

The witcher 2 is $4.99 at GOG for today.

https://secure.gog.com/game/the_witcher_2

Also every grouped deals that were available for the winter sale so far are all available today too.

Clciking see all deals at the last available deal makes around six more pop up.

So One Piece 731:

Code:
Wow that was amazing. Oda is the master of the slow build. I'm not going to say that this development is a shock to me as I have been expecting Sabo to be the one to "inherit Ace's will" since Whitebeard's speech about how the will of D has been passed on through the generations. At least at one point I was expecting him to get the Falme-Flame fruit after we saw it as the prize, but I was expecting him to steal it when I was considering that possibility. Having him become Lucy was a great decision. I now look forward to him winning the tournament and proudly proclaiming as he is about to eat the fruit that he is Sabo D. Portgas, announcing that he has inherited Ace's will.

Sadly I don't really expect anyone to read that since very few people here keep up with the manga as far as I can tell.

I also like what it signifies

Code:
The revolutionaries have joined the fray. It has turned into a four way battle with the straw hats at the centre of it. Wonder if Robin knew that Sabo and Luffy know each other.

Also, looks like Caribou's story has finally concluded. I actually really enjoyed it. Probably my favourite cover story so far.

Just finished Crimson Shroud

The game was great. The story was interesting and the gameplay remained fun throughout. The game is pretty short. I clocked around five hours my first playthrough and hit fourteen and a half on new game plus. The enemies are boosted in ng+ so the combat stays engaging. The only part of the story that changes is the ending although new areas are unlocked. Definitely worth a fiver.

My only complaint it that the good ending in ng+ kind of sucked big time. I loved the original ending and was pretty disappointed with the changes.

Given that, I also like Mudazumo Naki Kaikaku AKA The Legend of Koizumi (well, until they switched main character... it went to crap after the switch)
I loved that. The manga just got crazier and crazier. Didn't realise they continued the story.
175  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Classic Christmas Episodes on: December 15, 2013, 03:40:03 PM
Neither are very Christmassy or actually connected to Christmas at all but two movies are always on TV over here every year during Christmas Day. They are the old Willy Wonka movie and Darbie O'Gill and the little people.
176  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Awesome deals - 2013 version - Save money for that PS4/XBONE on: December 15, 2013, 10:45:57 AM
GOG are selling games like Baldurs Gate, Planescape Torment, Neverwinter Nights and Icewind Dale really cheap at the moment.

Also if anyone missed the free fallout games just give us a shout. I picked up a few free ones as gifts and don't mind passing them on.
177  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Member's Game of the Year - 2013 Edition! on: December 14, 2013, 03:54:33 PM
I have not played a lot of new games this year.

GOTY 2013
Bioshock Infinite

The game blew me away. It is up there with Radiant Historia and Trails in the sky as my favourite game the last few years.

Runner Up
Pokemon X

I have put hundreds of hours(Terrifying thinking on it) into this game. I can't really call it my GOTY but I had fun with it throughout.

Also Ni No Kuni, FFXIV and Harvest Moon A New Beginning are worth mentioning

Non 2013 made GOTY
Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers

The game has aged remarkably well and I had a lot more fun with it than I expected.

Biggest Disappointment
Been lucky with games this year but the MMO Ecol Tactics sticks out to me. It was displayed as something akin to FFT gameplay online and I bought into the hype. The game is okay but I was expecting something different.

I despise inappropriate apostrophes of all types.  Especially when they're used as incorrect plurals, but also when they're used to misspell Ys.  

Guessing it is one of your pet peeve's?

I may have done that on purpo'se.
179  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: December 13, 2013, 05:53:11 PM
Has anybody here played Crimson Shroud or Attack of the Friday Monsters? Thinking of getting one of them. Are they worth the price? I hear both are quite short games. Leaning more towards Crimson Shroud at the moment. Kyle seemed to really like it. AotFM also received a lot of praise where I looked but I seem to recall Dice saying she hated it.

that's cost-effective and durable enough to be deployed on a mass scale and complete its job reliably.

You forgot armored. People are going to shoot those down for free stuff.

I wish that was a joke but yeah, I can see that happening.
