I had a female roommate and we never had a single fight.
Guess I'm the exception.

On another topic... I need moral support/detractor

I've had my mouse hovering the buy button for a while now...
I know my Japanese is too sucky to really play it, but it'd sure be a good 'study aid'.
I've got till May to think about it I guess.

There's a saying here that if you don't have abs by a certain age, you'll never get them.
I'm 9 months away from that age and have never had abs in my entire life.
I'm starting to workout hoping I can see what it's like.

I really need to not give up on this.

ToD is one of the rare case where I think we got a much better song than the original Japanese.
Seriously, we won on that game.

Video review of TESO:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=upE802rZl7Q

Summary:
- 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
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-02-06-dungeon-keeper-androids-rating-system-filters-out-1-4-star-reviews

TL;DR
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.

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*
