286  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.

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.

Mana Khemia

The game seems to be taking a turn for the depressing as of chapter 8. Hopefully I am wrong. Not that it seems to be done bad but rather I simply don't want it to happen.

Code:
The chapter intro conversations seem to be leading to Vayne is the Mana and Sulphur is an ordinary cat. Been suspicious as soon as they mentioned Sulphur as a kitten. Him being unable to talk was also suspicious. What depresses me is that they seem to be going the path of making sulphur die of old age. Hoping that Vayne can bring him back somehow if he does. He brought back a tree to life so don't know if it is in his power.

Loved Sulphur ever since he called that Freshman a bitch

Received some nice news today.

My bins get collected every two weeks and they fill up pretty damn quick. My solution for this is to basically step on top of the bins to push the rubbish down. I noticed a giant crack in the bins recently which made me panic slightly as I hadn't a clue what to do or if there was a repair cost. Binman comes to collect it and notices the huge crack. He asked when it happened and then told me that a lot of people had been complaining recently. They had a new truck that was apparently breaking the bins. Got a new bin and everything is as right as rain now.

Didn't help the auld self esteem either, thinking I broke it. I don't think I am that heavy and those things are built to last.

Is GoG getting hammered? I'm getting server errors =/

Yeah, it tends to happen to GOG with high traffic load. Same thing happened during the insomnia sale. There is like 46 hours left so no rush to get it anyway although they also have a Christmas sale at the moment too.

Fallout 1, 2 and tactics are free on gog at the moment. They will probably be gone for good after christmas due to the rights of them finally going to Bethesda. You will still be able to download them as much as you want as long as they are in your collection. They just will not be available to buy.

Deal lasts for the next two days.

Never been to an all you can eat place before. We have them but none are that close to me.

Haven't had sushi either although now that I think about it, I think salmon and cod are the only types of seafood I have eaten. I really need to try new food.

3DS e-shop still won't connect for me. Hopefully it is just server load rather than any real issue.


Are you perhaps the experiencing the dreaded 007-2100 error? It's pretty common, but there are some easy fixes that usually work. You could try changing the DNS setting.

On your 3DS:
1. Go to settings
2. Choose Internet Options
3. Choose Connection Settings
4. Choose your current connection and change settings
5. Choose DNS (second screen)
6. Select No and go to detailed set-up
7. Primary DNS 008.008.008.008, Secondary DNS 008.008.004.004.
8. Test your connection. If it functions, try accessing the eShop

The 007-2100 might also be related to the latest update (which you probably just installed, because that's the one that introduced MiiVerse on the 3DS), in which case you'll just have to wait and see, I guess. Nintendo is working on it.

Yeah, I had just done the latest update. Thankfully it was working this morning. Guessing it was due to server load. The normal Mii plaza update was not working at the time either. First time I had an issue with it. Didn't realise there was a common problem.

And I'm fucking DONE.

Skyrim mod that changes ALL dragons with Thomas the Tank Engine.
1:50 for where the magic is about to start.  It is the greatest mod ever. xD



I actually laughed out loud. It just got better and better especially as everyone was so serious and it flowed perfectly.

Ralof: Jarl Ulfric! What was that? Could the legends be true?

And then people start getting tossed around like ragdolls by the apparently psychic Tank Engine.

You make it sound like a bad thing.

Frozen

Really liked this movie and probably enjoyed it as much as Tangled and Brave. I do agree with grim on the snowman though. Sven the reindeer was great but  Olaf just reminded me of Mort the annoying ginger from family guy. I also liked the little nod to arrested development near the beginning.

I didn't mind the whole princess thing mainly because she was a princess all the way through and didn't just discover it at the end. Brave was similar I suppose but Merida felt more like a chiefs daughter than a princess.

Code:
Wasn't expecting Hans betrayal even though it was obvious Kristoff was "the one". I didn't expect the kiss to work but thought they would have pulled some Disney shenanigans and suggested Elsa and Hans hook up after the end of the movie. Glad they went the way they did.

Mii verse is weird, not really sure what to think of it.

the Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

Not even going to try to explain my feelings on this. I can't even say for sure if I enjoyed it or not. Leaning more on liking it.

I can see some people hating it but I found it interesting. I haven't felt this way about a movie since Oldboy. Not that they are similar movies or anything, just that they left me with that similar feel at the end.
