I have had the Mass Effect trilogy box set for a while and decided to start it last night. I have only just left the Citadel  but am having a blast. Combat is fun, even if it does remind me of a third-person Time Crisis. Driving is pretty boring and probably my least favourite part of the game.

Tried playing Morrowind and it's even worse than I remember. Somehow I keep forgetting about the overzealous collision detection, the bad map geometry that that's really easy to get stuck on, how short the jumps are, the slow movement speed, the hugeness of all the areas in the game which really compounds the slow movement speed... just the act of moving in the game is deeply unpleasant. I can't think of any other games I've managed to get stuck on the map object so frequently.

How many hours did I spend on this when I was younger?

I would say the geometry issue is more of a Bethesda thing than a purely Morrowind one, although it does suffer a lot from from it. I didn't really have those issues myself. My problems were more easily solved with the aid of mods. Things such as the horrible economy system that plagues every elder scrolls and delaying the Dark Brotherhood attack. I delay it more to prevent me getting some of the best armour in the first town rather than for difficulty reasons though. Despite it's flaws I still love the game though.

Playing along with my unarmoured, unarmed healer in Morrowind. After hitting a decent hand to hand level, fighting lost its tediousness and became quite fun. A lot more strategy is needed than usual. Hand to Hand is not as powerful so far as it was in Skyrim but it seems more useful than it was in Oblivion at least. I was surprised at how strong it was in the early game of Skyrim. It does go from more powerful than most other early game weapons to falling behind mid to late level weapons though.

Finished Fallout 3. I thought the ending was pretty lame. The pacing seemed really off after the G.E.C.K quest.

One of the weirder videos I have seen lately. It does not really get into it until the 2 minute mark but it needs it to build up the later part.

Breath of fire IV
Two points in the game really stand out for me as being scenes of total badassness
Code:
The first is at Ershins "last stand" where Ershin says "If someone asked you to escape, leaving them behind, what would you do? It becomes even more badass when you realise she means it as a legitimate question.
The second is the scene with Scias at the windmill

Radiant historia
I actually preferred the normal ending to the true ending but this part really stands out to me. It is as much the music changing to Red Locus as it is the scene itself.

There is also the best bad ending in the game where you discover what a badass Marco is

Just watched This is the End. I actually loved the movie and thought it was hilarious although I could see how the humour in it would not be for everyone.

Even though Brazil beat Spain as thoroughly as they did Italy, the match was a lot more fun to watch.

Really enjoyed the episode. I am glad you guys added in Shadow Hearts: From the New World. The soundtrack seems to be often overlooked due to the dislike people have for the game itself. Loved the conversation about Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross as well as about I'll Face Myself.

I personally like FF8's OST a lot, but I can see why some people might not be as down with it.

I agree with you about the soundtrack to FFVIII. I was not a huge fan of the game that much until a recent playthrough where I began appreciating it a lot more, especially the soundtrack.

Yeah, just found out about that one. I don't really have much experience relating to combat changing mods. If missing is an issue it may be easier to just raise the weapon skill to 50 by trainers or console command. Attacks miss a lot less frequently at that level or higher.

Morroblivion has also come a long way and Skywind is also being developed. I think Morrowblivion is actually completed.

Danrilion, do you have an combat-related mods you'd recommend for Morrowang?

Morrowang? Bahahaha

Do you mean to stop your attacks missing most of the time in the beginning? There is a mod to make every attack hit but it ruins the difficulty. Not as in a "oh noes, you are not playing the game how it is meant to" but in a it totally unbalances the game kind of way. The combat is based on behind the scenes dice rolls and the mod interferes with the damage reading causing all kinds of problems.

The leveling system was the thing I had to change. I hated the vanilla one.

Edit: Turns out I was wrong. Apparently there is one called Combat Experience - Depth Perception. It apparently does not have the issues the mod I was thinking of had. I have not tried it myself so no idea what it is like.

Just started a new file in Morrowind. I am playing as an alcoholic old healer who only wears robes and punches every enemy he sees. I don't think I will touch the main quest but rather hunt after the 36 sermons of Vivec.
