736  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Zelda 25th Anniversary website is up and running, what's a Metroid? on: August 08, 2011, 01:56:35 PM
Both awesome franchises. I grew up with these games, but didn't really catch the bug until my SNES days. That's when I fell in love with both Zelda and Metroid. Ocarina of Time was the first game I ever pre-ordered. Funny thing is that I got so hyped for it that, despite being a great game, it failed to live up to my expectations. When they said the world was so huge it took a whole day to traverse it, I really thought they meant 24 hours. It was somewhat true, it did take a day. Problem being, that it was an in game day which only lasted a few minutes of real time. I still loved it, but it was nothing like i imagined it would be. Metroid Prime was a different story. I honestly didn't know what to expect, but I was leaning towards a generic FPS in the Metroid universe. I managed to snag the Trilogy edition for a good price. Gave it a quick play, wasn't really that impressed, and then planted it on my waiting list while I went about finishing other games. When I finally got around to playing more than a few minutes, I realised why this game got so much praise. It suddenly dawned on me that I wasn't playing an FPS with a Metroid setting. I was playing a real deal Metroid game from an FPS POV. I still have not finished the first one because the game is huge and I like to take my time and explore everything to find all the hidden goodies. But now, just the thought that I still have two more Primes waiting for me on the same disk makes me as giddy as a litte girl at a Barbie doll expo. I've heard some less than flattering opinions about Other M, but I still intend to buy and beat it. Same goes for Twilight Princess, and I really like what I've seen of Skyward Sword so far. Over the years, I started to lose interest in Nintendo. But as long as these titles live, the big N's dot won't vanish from my radar.

No, all hand-crafted. It might seem that way because of the repetition - they only had one dungeon designer in Oblivion, Skyrim has eight so it should be an improvement there.

Fair enough. In that case, I stand corrected.
738  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on: August 07, 2011, 06:15:55 AM
Yeah, that's actually true, they ware the only ones that ware completely generated. I was under the impression that the new games still had randomly generated dungeons and quests though.

They don't need to "cheat". As far as I know, Elder Scrolls worlds are all randomly generated (its the source of a ton of bugs). The world can be as big as they want it to be.
Also, the nerdgazm-o-tron needle was off the scale on that video. The character swung his sword,they went mental. Raised his shield, same thing again. Maybe Its one of those "you had to be there" moments, but from the outside, it was so sad to watch that I actually turned the video off.

MvC3 = $60 at launch
UMvC3 = $40 at launch. 

$60 - thats fine
$40 - even better
$60+$40 = $100 - This is the problem.

Yeah, I know how these lawsuits work, but to me this is a new low. They actually want to red light an indie title that contains ONE of several words from the title of their flagship franchise. They obviously wont win this. There was already an instance of a company trying to trademark a word, and they failed miserably. I'm just guessing what an alternative reasons they could have for making a move like this. Publicity also comes to mind, or its all just a hoax.
742  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on: August 06, 2011, 06:04:53 AM
Wow, either Notch is talking out of his ass or Bethesda is pathetic. I wouldn't be surprised if this was some weird way of trying to recruit him. "Hey, start working for us, give us a cut of Minecraft profits, and you can call your little game whatever you want".
743  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Marvel vs. Capcom 3 announced on: August 06, 2011, 05:52:44 AM
Hell, the people who actually like MvC3 are happy.  Their broken ass game is getting fixed.

See, the problem and reason for my rants is right there. Its not THEIR game that's getting fixed. From a consumer standpoint, Its a completely new game, separately released. THEIR game can go in the dumpster, because it becomes obsolete. Had these been patches or upgrades, I wouldn't have a problem with it. See me complaining about balance patches for MK or the DLC characters? Nope, because I have no reason to. I patch it when new stuff comes out, and continue playing the game with its expanding content without having to re buy it every few months.
744  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Marvel vs. Capcom 3 announced on: August 05, 2011, 03:57:19 PM
Don't worry, there's still a chance. Capcom is bound to re-release this game at least two more times. So the super duper turbo deluxe ultimate arcade edition might still include the characters you want.
745  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on: August 05, 2011, 03:52:03 PM
Holy Batman!

I'd better upgrade my PC for this game. X.X

No need to rush, by the time the bugs are ironed out and the game is close to playable, the hardware required will be much cheaper.
I actually mean this as a joke, but the sad thing is that I'm probably right.
746  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Marvel vs. Capcom 3 announced on: August 05, 2011, 08:18:27 AM
I don't really want to waste time, so Ill ask first. Is that a legitimate rant, or is it another dude randomly screaming and swearing in broken English?
747  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: A place to decide the most popular RPG. on: August 05, 2011, 08:13:15 AM
While I don't really care much for these things, I'll have to agree with Themadcow. If you're going to advertise a list like this, a forum dedicated to RPGs is probably the right place to do it. It got a conversation going and is obviously admin approved, otherwise it would have been locked long ago.

The thing is, that if they wouldn't care about what "we" want, they wouldn't be getting any money. Gamers are changing, and sadly, what we are seeing is a direct result of what the new generation of gamers wants to see. The modern gamer doesn't want to try too hard, think too much or wait too long. Modern games are a cake walk for a reason. Heck, I barely ever see any game over screens these days. Its not about weather you can beat the game or not, its about weather you stick around long enough to see the ending. As an experiment, I dare you to fire up your old consoles (if you still have one) and see how long you last in an oldschool game. I did, and I probably saw more Game Over screen in ten minutes than I had in a month of "modern gaming". The thing that kept running through  my head was "how the heck did I beat this as a kid?". The reason is simple, modern games made me lazy, I expect a game to hold my hand now, tell me what buttons to press and when to press them. But what if I fail? No problem, I just take three steps back and go again. When I was a kid, games would be strict and unforgiving. There was no room to mess up because it meant starting over. Now that I'm an adult, games treat me like a child. I find that fairly ironic.

I'm going to have to disagree with you hare. Diablo 2 was built around two main features, hunting for loot and building your character. So, if the game now builds the character for you, and rare loot can be bought, what does that leave for the oldschool Daiblo player? My take, is that these are legit complaints from people who loved the old games. I can't judge the final product, but I can already see that Blizzard is aiming for a low maintenance high profit product, that will generate constant income. I actually think that it will probably still turn out to be decent, but nothing close to what it could have been had they built it around the notion of making a great game, rather than a money printer. Its understandable form their point of view, but it doesn't mean I have to like it.

Well, the new DMC is still far from done, I'm not sold on it yet by any means and I hate the new Dantes design. Being modelled after one of the devs only makes it worse since they didn't exactly do him any favours when they adapted his look into the game. Too early to tell weather the game will suck, but its a bad start.

Silent Hill had three parts as far as I'm concerned, the rest are spin-offs.

Apart from the abysmal loading times, I'd say Suikoden V got the series back on track. Years ago, as the current consoles ware about to hit the market, I was really looking forward to the next generation of Suikoden games. Sadly, they never came, and it looks like they wont any time soon, if ever at all.
As I said before, I'm actually putting a lot of hope and faith in indie fan games now, because its probably the closest we're going to get to a decent Suikoden title any time soon.
