I found myself remember the Mechwarrior 2 soundtrack.

Great game... great tunes

I didn't think you'd like a movie about hooters.




We watched World's Greatest Dad. Interesting black comedy.

I really don't see where that came from, they're completely different games. That's like coming into a Resident Evil thread and saying Super Mario Galaxy >>> Resident Evil.

Fear Effect and Tomb Raider aren't quite as different as comparing SMG with Resident Evil.

That's irrelevant, there's just no point, it's completely random. Where are you coming from with this statement? Why Fear Effect? What does that have to do with anything? You could say that you feel TR is obsolete since uncharted's release for example, but Fear Effect? I just don't see your point.

Just like that guy in the ME thread, I hate when people do that.

Between this and his Fear Effect thread maybe Sise-Neg has a few copies of of Fear Effect for sale on ebay is trying to rally interest thus driving up biding prices

rewatching season 1 of community on dvd.

I like this season much more. 2 has some hilarious moments, but it is too preachy w/ the "lessons learned about life" at the end of each episode.

I also find Brita to be much more attractive than Annie.

You beat DS2 on zealot? Damn don't you only get 3 saves?

Goose, did you ever play Homeworld?

How difficult would you guys rate dead space? I'm playing through on medium, trying to only use the plasma cutter to get a lame achievement :)

I played on medium for a while, then switched to casual because I'm a wuss. I've actually read that the game is pretty easy on medium due to the abundance of ammo. I would agree with this, as you are constantly getting restocked. My problem is more to do with slow reaction times. I love games like this, but mostly suck at them because I suck at aiming without a "lock on" feature. Hence the casual setting. I'm sure you'll do just fine on medium. You might even want to crank it up if you consider yourself good at these kinds of games.


I'm on level 8 and it gets dicey. At the start of the game I had more ammo than needed but now it's normal for me to only have about 25-30 rounds. That's more than enough for just running around but I like to have a big buffer.

God is this game good. Focusing only on my suit and one gun my gear is leveled pretty good. I think I'm going to try a hardcore playthrough when I beat it and try and level everything up and play w/ the bigger guns.

I just love looking around in this game. Such a well done environment. It's like playing through Alien/Aliens with the awesome lighting and sound. The actual encounters aren't that frightening for some reason. Mostly because it's just so damn loud w/ the screaming and the music cues.

I can't wait to give #2 a whirl, probably much later this year.

Found a copy of Atelier Iris 2 today. If I can just find a copy of AI3, I can play all three this summer.

Atelier Iris 2 was better than 1, imo.

I remember enjoying 1, getting bored with 2.  Didn't play 3.  Then I asked, "what the hell did I like with 1?"

I'm playing it for the charming sprites

ME2 was considered the best game of last year and its sequel is one of the most antecipated games of this generation, how the word "irrelevant" even appeared in this thread is beyond me.

Anyway, talking about things that matter, GI had some interesting bits of info.

"No multiplayer." If the game ends up disappointing people will have to find another scapegoat.

"The game will by default feature a "previously on Mass Effect" comic to make decisions with if starting from scratch." This is cool, a quick way to create new saves.

"Cerberus is out to kill Shepard" Looks like the IM lost his patience with Shepard, though this might not make sense depending on what you decided at the end of ME2.

"All classes can wield all weapons unhindered now, but will have limited slots to carry them." Fine by me.

"Skill trees will be larger, and powers will evolve several times instead of just once." Cool.

"Numerous endings, some good, some bad, and who you have in your squad and which allies you recruit can have a drastic effect on which are available." Like ME2, only this time we're talking about the conclusion of the entire saga, which makes it more relevant. I'm guessing the reapers can win if you mess up.





I wonder how they're going to do skills for people importing saves. Me1->Me2 was done in a certain way to make sense for a reset in skill levels, interesting to see how they'll handle that in 3.


Also, since you have a squad of people and if you did all the missions they should be loyal. Hopefully this lengthens the critical game path over ME2 where the big bulk of the game was party building.

I just hope the Hanar are featured. I love those things

That guy's argument makes no sense, I wish he'd stop trolling this thread and go droll on his FF7 case

Ok, I see you guys disagree with my point of view, but I've been at the very least respectful and tried to explain myself without making harsh comments at the comeback (even if that seems to generate more hate against myself). At the very least I don't insult you. It would be good if you did the same.

Eusis - Maybe 'nobody' was a strong word, but wouldn't you agree that those two games are only played by an ever smaller group of people? Just the graphic distortion and stability issues of modern hardware make those games harsh to appreciate for anyone that did not play them when they were at their prime.

Guess I'll stay out of the "Mass Effect 3" thread. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Save the holier than thou routine. Coming into a thread and saying a game is irrelevant and not providing anything to the discussion of said game is the definition of troll. Especially when dealing with RPGs these are ALL games that are going to be played for a long time in some fashion or another, so they'll always be relevant to someone, somewhere. Who cares how much crappy fan art it gets?

If everyone around here went into a particular game's thread and declared it not worthy of the test of time in their opinion this place would be rather tiresome, but most people have some class

Oh, Eusis, thanks for the refresher on what the Reapers do a few pages back.

It's been a while since I played and I blanked.

When going short be careful.

It's a fine line between cute and edgy and soccer mom
