Video review of TESO:

- 1st person view sucks due to no collision
- Lag
- Race/Class paywalled
- Non-shared loot / Diablo 2 loot system
- Repetitive / boring / Slow / Shallow
- Mounts are vanilla WoW costy (or pay $ for it)
- Fully voiced

(I feel like Yggdrasil right now with all that recent relinking of news)

Oh EA, you so EA

1-4 star rating sends an email to EA
5 star rating goes to Google Play store rating

Without cheating, only 5 star rating can be sent to Google Play store.

Creator of Flappy Bird takes the app down. Says he can't cope with it anymore.

Also, first world problems

Valentine contest

Your Winner: Bastila

Well, I'll be... didn't even think I'd make her win.

EDIT: I'm pretty puzzled by the lack of KotOR2 though...

The problem isn't about intelligence, but maturity. Japanese games are mostly aimed at early teenagers. With most of us in this forum hovering around 30 years of age, we can't help it but feel those games are 'teenage dramas'.

Western games aren't any better. They also target early teenagers while pretending to be more mature (read that as gritty and dark).

Lastly, it's not because someone is intelligent that they can discover something. Equipment, material, funds and the will to explore are important. One of the smartest man on the planet is a Hollywood actor. I don't think he cares much about quantum physics.

There are so many points scattered in there that I don't think I can even follow your argument holy =/

*steps on his soap box*

So, having played ZoE2 HD enough, I find myself conflicted.

The updated graphics are very nice, but I don't like the majority of the other changes.
Most of the alterations are made to make the game harder, but not more fun. That's a serious issue.

The best example is the lava/shaft zone right after Viola AI. It used to be the easiest level in the whole game. Grab Ardjet and just fly up... that's it. It was somewhat nice as it was a relief from what is by far the worst boss fight prior.

Now, after defeating Viola AI, you are treated to this completely obnoxious level with:
- 2 firewalls (must kill certain enemy to have the key and proceed)
- 2 eternally respawning raptors with a respawn time of 5 EFFING SECONDS

The new difficulty is also pretty jibberish. It gives 'cheats' to most bosses (like Ardjet gets a weird short dash that allows her to perfectly avoid melee strikes)

Some other 'fun' things were also removed like Naked Jehuty breaking shields easily.
Some 'useful' stuff was also removed like being able to destroy all the things that get in your way when against Inhert phase 1 (the whole area is now indestructible).

The only 'good' change I've noticed is that you can heal Taper's LEV and Ardjet when you burst while grabbed. Although it only works on default (and maybe V2) Jehuty. Naked used to be able to do it but can't anymore (seems like a code fuckup to me)

So overall, I think they failed at making the game any more fun. It is harder, but the extra difficulty feels cheap when considering the original and mostly makes me rage more instead of wanting to rise to the challenge.

*steps off soap box*

Since Dice informed me in this thread that UQ Holder is Ken Akamatsu's new work, I decided to check that out today.
It's not very good =/

I'm not even sure that I like him bringing Eva in this publications. Her character feels waaaaaay off also.
Maybe it'll mature into something good, but for now, it's not really worth the read.

I got Metro 2033 off a bundle and I liked it. Not to the point of playing through it more than once, but that single run entertained me.

I also like that I played the game killing EVERYTHING... E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G ! and the game gave me this badass achievement at the end:

I don't have any irl friends. This isn't hyperbole. My mom's the only person I feel any sort of connection to and even that's mixed with antagonism.

It's like, I have people that I interact with on a daily basis and I can't meet them with anything more than ambivalence, at best. And this is every. Single. Da. For the past three years. It gets to you. I don't even feel like I can relate to or engage with people in a normal way anymore. Like, I can't read them.

This sounds as depressing as the girlfriend thing we posted about a while ago.

Most of my friends left and are scattered far away.
I had a very good friend that was still here but he died.
Without that, I have people 'I know' but they aren't what I'd consider friends.

There's my mom and my dad.
I don't even really talk/see my brother much. We've never been close.

It's really hard to make good friends. I'm not even sure if I have the capability to make that kind of friendship as an adult.
I should create a 'friending site'. Like a dating site, but you're looking to find a local best friend.
