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

I would take a 12-year-old me, show him Mega Man 10 and say, "THIS IS HOW FAR GAMES HAVE PROGRESSED" despite 12-year-old me having a PlayStation.

LOL!

Or the secret levels in super meat boy.

Another interesting angle is the huge float of debris making it's way across the Pacific Ocean. Boats coming across houses and such

So, I failed playing drunken Neptunia. Therefore, i've decided to try something else before I hit the sack, and sober up. You guys have surely played Spyro the Dragon? Well, there's a boss called Metalhead, and he has his own level with his own song. I should attempt doing a metal cover of the Metalhead theme, just for the double ironic epicness, amirite?

Here's the song.

Spyro fucking rules.

I love the old PS1 platformers, especially Ape Escape.

I see you're in NZ. I want to go there so bad but I don't think I could survive the flight (I get intense sinus/ear pain)

I go to a salon school called the aveda institute. It's 16 bux and I usually tip a few. I've never had a bad cut because alll the students have teachers breathing down their necks and helping them out.

Pros:
Decent price for a salon in a city
loaded w/ hot chix
since they're students they're focused on doing their job and not all lackadaisical about it
loaded w/ hot chix
since they're trying not to fuck up there's less painful small talk
loaded w/ hot chix


cons:
they're kinda slow
you'll never get the same person twice, so you'll always have to describe in detail what you want.
they do a good job but sometimes they're tentative to take it as short as I want it.
the free tea they have tastes like if someone dehydrated a christmas elf, powdered it, and made a tea out of it



They're in multiple cities so if anyone is looking for something new I recommend them.

I went to a brewpub and got a little drunk. and got a growler to go.

it's not that easy for guys. if you have shorter hair you have to get it cut at least every month or you look foolish. it's also easy to fuck up


5982  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Mass Effect 3 on: April 08, 2011, 01:36:31 AM
I'm glad I'm not the only one that thought that guy was ridiculous

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 decent enough I guess. Fortunately there's plenty of saves so that helps.

Using just the main gun seems ok because you can sell all the other ammo for $$$. But the small swarmy Flood type guys are hard to take out w/ the plasma gun.


Dead Space is incredibly fun. Sure I'd like more responsive turning and aiming, but it sort of works for the game. It's not some commando ninja, but an engineer wearing a heavy damn suit
