The emotion I felt sending Alistair to the axe in Dragon Age was pure joy.

The game is pretty huge and I think graphically it still looks pretty (except for the faces). The fun in the game lies in the side quests for some of the different "factions" and the ability to take things at your own pace.

As far as customization goes you can mess around with the way your character looks a lot, and every weapon/armor you equip changes the character model.


The main beef I have w/ this game is the level up system. In theory it's awesome but if you play w/ mixed tactics like a jack of all trades you'll find yourself over matched later on in the game.

The way it works is you have the usual attributes like strength, endurance, etc where you spend points once you level up. You level up by using skills . This is anything from simply moving and jumping to casting spells and using weapons. (I'll still maintain that becoming a "Master of Blunt" is the best thing I've ever done).

For example, you have a level progress bar that fills up a little each time one of your skills levels up. Say you do nothing but use heavy armor and swing a big axe. Each time you take a hit wearing that armor your heavy armor meter fills up a bit and when it fills up all the way once the level progress bar fills up. How many times you level up certain related skills, like heavy armor and blunt weapons, depends on how many attribute points you can add to strength, intelligence, etc.

So when you level up you can add points to three attributes, and if you don't use related skills you'll only get a few points, 2 or 3, when you need to get at least 4 or 5. Getting 4 or 5 means you used a lot of related skills wisely.

The problem I had is I liked sneaking, I liked using some heavy weapons, I used some magic, even some ranged attacks. So by using random stuff like that I'd only get 3s to level up. By the time I was level 30 I was getting punked big time by trolls and other baddies.

Thankfully this game has a pretty good difficulty slide bar, where you can adjust it so it "feels just right" and not too hard or easy.

Is that cooking at a very low temp for a long ass time?

We've been wanting to try that out. Let me know how it turns out!

A friend is reading this and it seems pretty interesting.

Saw "Midnight in Paris" with my girlfriend. What a good movie. We snuck a bottle of wine into the theatre thinking it would be empty. It was nearly a full house. We decided not to open it fearing that the cork popping would be rather obnoxious and obvious.

When we got home, we realized it had a cap.

Bless your soul for sneaking in shit.

I do that all the time. I usually get a pint of whiskey and dump it into my pop.


I'm weird about salt at movie theaters too. I go to Wendy's and steal the packs of salt (Wendy's works the best because the salt is very fine) to put on my popcorn at the movie theater when the thing is half empty or so.

I'm serious about my salty ass popcorn.

what i want to know is how they came to the conclusion that they would be profitable in europe and not NA. it makes me think there is some external factor at play in america. part of me wants to blame the noah's arc level flood of shooters but is it really that simple? are shooters less popular in europe? or maybe its just supply and demand? maybe less games are released in europe so its easier for these games to stand out there? once while talking to a friend i compared shooters to an invasive species...perhaps i was more spot on than i realize.

I'm calling it "gif from a music video John Lennon would've made if he were still alive"
5833  Media / General Games / Re: The Last Guardian on: July 05, 2011, 09:23:35 PM
God that gif is amazing.

I've played through a good chunk of Ico when it came out, in fact I actually bought it. But shortly after it came out I stopped playing games for quite a few years.

I tried playing it again this year but it looks AWFUL on a HDTV

Tattoos aren't my thing but I love seeing others'.

If I got a gaming tattoo?



probably something vault-boy related.

Or a naked Liara
5835  Media / General Games / Re: The Last Guardian on: July 05, 2011, 08:17:49 PM
That's some serious praise.

You haven't played it?

Nope. I'll get the collection when it comes out.
