Lords of Shadow - I am about to fight the Titan at the end of Chapter 2. I'm still enjoying the game quite a bit. The amount of moves/skills that I can use is almost staggering. I probably only use 3-4 main attacks, while alternating between light and dark magic. Plus, major spamming of the dodge roll.
The graphics continue to be beautiful and full of color. Maybe that's what is really getting with this game. It's colorful.So many games nowadays seem to be stuck in a brown/gray/beige rut, that anything that actually uses the full color spectrum looks great.
The music is very nice, if a bit repetitive. It fits the game very well, though.

I wouldn't worry too much about Missing Dragon Age. It was enjoyable, but the ME games are better.
Like others have said, even though I've already played both on the 360, I want that digital comic. Sounds interesting.

Wow. Your post sure did what you intended it to do. The premise is fantastic. It kinda reminds me of Inception, but that's certainly not a bad thing.
I'm not much of an indie gamer either, but I might just be getting this one.
Thanks for letting us know about your game.

There's some good pics there, Yoda. I'm also a big photography buff, and take my camera everywhere I go.  My stuff is pretty much all nature photography. A great deal is taken in my own garden. Perhaps I'll post a few later when I get home.

did my 1/2 marathon in about 2:20. Won't for sure until they put the times online.

Did at a pretty good clip, so start because of the crowd. Last mile my legs felt like lead
Congratulations! I know how hard it is to train for one of those(sort of). My wife just recently ran her first half marathon. Her time was 2:18 or so.
She's running a 15k in downtown Chicago this Saturday. It's called the Hot Chocolate race or something. Going to be a gazillion people there.

Castlevania: LoS - I'm enjoying it so far. I just made it to chapter 2. I'm really a bit shocked at how freaking gorgeous this game is. Wow. The story and voice acting are well done.  The music is very "epic movie" like. Nothing amazing, but it suites the game well. The battle system is quite extensive. Overall, a very favorable impression so far.

Honestly, between a full time job, a wife, and a kid, I don't have a whole lot of time for hobbies. I certainly have them, but my time is limited.
Fortunately, what I do for a living(I work in sales at a landscape company) is pretty cool and ties in quite nicely with my #1 hobby/lifestyle: gardening. I have spent inordinate amounts of time turning my yard into a beautiful English style cottage garden. I love it. I actually go through a bit of withdrawal in the winter. Thank goodness for my other hobbies. I know it's generic to say books and movies, but outside of games and gardening, that's what I do. I watch lots of movies(and select tv shows. I'm watching Doctor Who right now). I read every day, but in such small amounts of time that it tales me forEVER to get through a single book.
That's it. gardening, gaming, movies, and books. If I wanted to try something new, I would have to eliminate one of the old, and I don't want to do that.
BTW, IMO exercise doesn't count as a hobby unless it's something like biking, hiking, sports related, etc. Going to a gym is not a hobby.

So this game doesn't install or what? I just popped it in and it just started up. I was surprised that it didn't try to install or anything. Odd.

Nier has been ridiculously cheap lately so I guess that helped. I posted a link to a site that was selling the game for fucking 12 euros and the game was in the site's top 10 PS3 games for several months.

I wish it was ridiculously cheap around here. It's still almost full price everywhere. Even online the cheapest I can find it(new) is +/-$34. I may just spring for it. I'm getting tired of waiting.

I don't understand why you'd get all angry at people liking certain types of games. People like what they like.

I know I'm more interested in Fallout: New Vegas than this. Not that it sounds like a bad game or anything, I just haven't really heard anything about it that's piqued my interest.
Very true. People can play whatever they want. But why do so many play the same games over and over again? Why do 4-5 million(+++) people buy those games, and a much, much smaller amount buy this one, or Metroid? You know reviews have nothing to do with it, or Medal of Honor or FO:NV wouldn't be doing as well as they are.
Why does this bother me? Because I want more Castlevanias and Metroids to be made. And maybe a few less FPS clones.
Basically, I hate seeing something like this fail. They've obviously put a ton of work into it, but no one seems to care. They'd rather play Call of Duty 456.
(btw, Nier has sold even less over more time. Only 90,000 copies in the U.S. 390G worldwide, so that's not too bad)
2126  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Halloween Haps on: October 26, 2010, 02:00:34 PM
It's quite big around here(here being the burbs of Chicago). We normally get +/- 200 kids. Every city has set times for trick or treating. Our hours are 3:30-6. I think this is idiotic because if Halloween happens during the week, things are all screwed up due to school and parents working. I also think it sucks because all trick or treating is done before it gets dark. "for safety reasons" say the uptight soccer moms. Bunch of wusses. Halloween is WAY cooler in the dark.

I never understood the whole "hardtype" business. I remember the game being plenty challenging back when I played it as FF II on the SNES. And this was way before I became a wuss about challenge in games. No way would I want to play a harder version.
2128  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Castlevania - Lords of Shadow on: October 26, 2010, 01:49:55 PM
Screw the Halos, Call of Dutys, and Fallouts. I want my Castlevanias and Metroids!

Man, Fallout was undoubtedly in the same position or lower than Castlevania before Bethesda bought it.
I know it doesn't seem to belong next to the other two. I only mentioned it because it seems to be selling like hotcakes despite all the problems it supposedly has. Like people are just SO desperate to get a game, any game. I don't get it.
It's like there's only a certain amount of games/series that sell like crazy, then everything else fights for the scraps. People need to look outside of the "Top Tens" a bit more.
Black Ops will be out soon. It's guaranteed to sell in the multiple millions. Why? So people can play another game just like the one they played a week ago?(Not to say Castlevania is all that original)
I would love so much to see it sell only 130,000 copies.
2129  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Castlevania - Lords of Shadow on: October 26, 2010, 11:28:43 AM
Yeah, I would like to know where can I find how big of a budget this game had and how well it sold


I'm not sure how truly accurate their #'s are, but it's probably pretty close.
No idea on budget.

Bayonetta is pure insanity! It's fun, but most of the time there's so much going on that I just have to mash the buttons,and hope it all works out. I'm very impressed by the amount of stuff happening on the screen without any slowdown or frame rate issues. Great programming here. The "wall walking" scenarios surprised me, and are very cool.
I'm about to start chapter 5.
