Is the new graphics engine much more demanding?  I was barely cutting it before, though it still played quite smoothly.

FFXIV was one lick short of an orgasm, in my opinion.  Blue balls all the way back down, though.

I think Demon's Souls got a boost in popularity after Dark Souls came out... they extended the server life a million times, and as far as I know, it is still up!

The most finicky gamers I know say that Dark Souls is their favorite game, and that is why I am still their friend.  Their tastes are otherwise a mile away, but we can talk about DS for hours.  These powergamers fucking destroy everything they play, but Dark Souls still had a high enough ceiling for them.  They immediately played Demon's Souls afterward, and said it was even harder...

Dark Souls 2 could be directed by Michael Bay and I'd still buy it.  I will give money to the brand name even if the final product sucks, just this once.

Friend co-op sounds fun, despite how it would ruin the emotional desperation theme.  I think the 3rd game in the series is the perfect time to implement such "what if" features.  The gameplay  mechanics are solid, but I don't think I'd appreciate any more invisible floors or 3 foot visibility dungeons, no matter how well designed.  No need to beat a dead horse.

I would happily play capture the flag with my Dark Soul's character, to put it bluntly.

I bought Koudelka for $23 from the new used game shop in town.  Amazon prices = $36 and may not include case or manual, woot.

Also Evil Zone.  Old ass games are soothing.

I'm deleting music from my SD card so I can download Fractured Soul for my 3DS (after having paid $12).  I also apparently backed up the cocos2DX libraries and realized... my girlfriend thought that was bitches.

Has being a nerd come this far in the eyes of society?  I can't lock myself away in a dark room with obscure iPhone code without being accused of being a baller of LeBron James (?) proportions?  If so, wind it back, got-damn

Otherwise, the son (age 10) of the woman I love so much wanted Devil May Cry 2... I got him DMC4 for PS3 instead (price difference: $10; quality difference: you tell me because I listened to the reviews lawl).  I had just bought myself DMC4 for PC after playing the DmC reboot, so it was like, you're not my son, but you're my son.

I swear to god, every time I have a project like this, she thinks it's bitches, instead of a way to quickly get out of this poverty mess. 

This will be a 7 year relationship soon... if married men always made obvious choices, there would be no married men.  Maybe I've been wrong all this time, and "hump-em and dump-em" McGillicuddy was more than a smooth-talking bullshitter.

I guess you're right.  I actually payed similar prices to those games myself, but I loved them so much that I was ready for this at $60... but yeah, that sounds perfectly reasonable.  I hope that's all it is.

With regard to people acting like their busy friends are being bad friends... my gf is convinced (or acting convinced) that I am seeing other women.  I live in a foreclosed house with my mother, waiting for the eviction notice so I can see to shit properly.  As if I'm slaying ass... "wanna come back to my mom's place?  Everything is in storage and she's a light sleeper, but they haven't cut the heat off yet and it's wintertime!"

The reality is that I am spending all day programming, which is basically work.  If I were actually at an hourly paying job, she wouldn't question those 8 hours of no-contact... but since I'm at home, in the zone, every day is obviously a day off and I'm just ignoring her.

And then there's Skrillex... FAWK!
25  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Anarchy Reigns on: December 01, 2012, 11:10:46 PM
Why would it be $30?  I've grudgingly paid $60 for games that I was barely curious enough about, but this was one I'd have happily given $60 for.

I hope it's because fans like me are in the minority, and not because the game itself is thin.

Oh, and I've had this preordered since it was called "Max Anarchy".  I'm good with the guys at Gamestop, so if there are any technical difficulties, they'll generate my Bayonetta unlock code (they've done similar tricks for me before, like when I lost my GW2 beta weekend key... cost me a preorder for Ragnarok Odyssey, but luckily that game turned out awesome--I digress)

As a swordsman I'm still using my defense based sword, as it happens to have a pretty decent ATK growth.  I think it's the Yr 2hander... it was from an earlier chapter, and I haven't been able to justify using even the executioner swords in Chapter 4.  I think I'm in Chapter 4 at least.

You all who added me, lets try to use our bedroom poring-angels to send each other a constant flow of items, eh?  You don't lose items you send through near; they are duplicated just for your friends.

I put my sword in there, if I remember.

I'm not drunk yet, though my memory is failing, obviously :P

So my cousin is a huge Korn fan, and Korn's latest album is a collaboration of sorts with Skrillex (they were fusing metal with dubstep).

My cousin is also in a metal band that is doing music for my almost-done game... a game which happens to be a weird derivation of Zelda and games inspired by Zelda.

I told him "you'll never guess who beat me to the punch... fucking Skrillex." When I showed him Skrillex Quest, even he couldn't help but laugh at the similarities. 

On the bright side, mine is a mobile game, but I seriously felt raped when I saw this.  My project is very different, but the concepts are quite similar.  That's what hurts me (on a personal level) the most, but we'll see how everything plays out.

I'm now writing jokes into the script to account for this, so hopefully it escalates into Tupac/B.I.G proportions :P

What if this DmC Dante were to appear in Shin Megami Tensei IV?

...am I the only one who finds this slightly offensive?

The writing quality is undeniable, but they're really drilling that octoroon label.  I'm only a few minutes into it and am hoping that it turns out as offensive satire (which I do love) but Hoopz dribble transformation... man... I laughed, and now feel guilty, so I'm posting about it here.

edit: ...and now Jews.  Very well.

Ok, so it's not just "black people play basketball" jokes.  The East vs West rants from the pump are amazing.

After playing the demo, I yearned for Bayonetta and Devil May Cry 4. 

It wasn't "unfun" though; the DMC name and the blatant attempts at coolness are all (most) of what upset me.

I remember Dante peeling himself out of a giant claymore that had impaled his chest, and saying "cool!"  This British flag nu-metal punk everything trendy is just the opposite... punks not dead, it just deserves to die when it becomes another stale cartoon.
