Generally, what I want is already out (Uncharted 2, Dragon Age) or not out til next year (Mass Effect 2, FF XIII)
Plus, there's always those games that come out of nowhere and get added to the list. We'll see.
2222  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Famitsu announces a new Lufia (Estpolis) game on: November 13, 2009, 09:20:09 AM
I tell ya. I will always be disturbed by the comments involving bodily fluids.

Anyway, I loved the first Lufia for the SNES. I remember playing 2 for a bit and stopping because it seemed to be too puzzled based. I'd probably like it more now.
Never played another Lufia after those; apparently for the better. Still...I'll keep my eye on this.

Yeah, not sure about this one. I loved the original with Harry Hamlin. I was pretty young when I first saw it and was freaked out by the whole Medusa sequence. Add in Chimeras, witches, pegasus, greek gods,  not to mention a giant sea monster, and you've got a good time.
I am skeptical.

I live in the Chicago area and was considering going to the Distant Worlds Concert. My brother wanted to go to, but he has no money, and I'm not going to pay for the both of us. My wife sure as hell isn't interested in going. lol. Plus the tickets were pretty expensive, and I started wondering if it would really be worth it.
Still, some time or another I would like to attend one of these.

I wasn't getting mad, just expressing my opinion. I tend to do this on most things. This brain makes me do it!
When something doesn't seem to make sense I can't help but comment, regardless of the topic at hand.
You can't see it under the hood, but I really am smiling.

Uncharted - played up to the beginning of Chapter(?) 13 last night. Holy shit, that jet ski ride was crazy. The first time I rode one a few chapters ago, it wasn't too bad. Throw in raging rapids, and the wonky controls really stand out. I have yet to contribute to the "sick" thread, but all that bumping and weaving starting making me nauseous after awhile. 
and then...
Code:
WTF? Sully is alive? and working with the other guy? Not cool.
2227  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Game Journal XX - Sharpened Pencil Midnight Bathouse on: November 09, 2009, 01:43:57 PM
Well, Uncharted is basically just "Platforming section -> Shootout -> Platforming section -> Shootout" and anybody who told you otherwise was lying.  That said, it's the high level of quality in both of those sections that made that game fantastic.

And who cares if you're getting "official" trophies that you can show off?  As long as you're getting the mini ones that give you direct in-game rewards I don't think it should matter either way.

Yeah, yeah, I realize the insignificance of trophies and such. But have you SEEN how barren that box down there looks? lol. Plus, the in game rewards do not interest me. Just like movies, I have no real interest in all the "making of" and "behind the scenes" stuff.  Ruins the illusion of the game and/or movie for me.

The game is exactly what you say it is, and yet that's not the vibe I got from the reviews and comments I read beforehand.
I'm totally enjoying the game. I was just expecting a bit more variety(read: less action, more puzzles).

Uncharted - Just started Chapter(?) 10.
I wonder about the trophy system for this game. The first time I played it, I was not online and didn't have the trophy support update installed. A few days later, I DLed the update. It's still not giving me trophies(despite finding 20 relics so far), though. I'm going to go ahead and assume that I screwed up by not getting the update upon first starting. I would probably have to start a whole new game if I wanted trophies. Am I right? If so, that sucks.
Anyway, enjoying the game very much. Getting better at aiming, but still get tired of the excessive shootouts.
2230  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: God of War I and II Blu-ray compilation for the PS3 on: November 09, 2009, 09:03:42 AM
I still think this whole thing is pointless. Like buying the same movie on Blu-Ray that you've owned on dvd for years. It's the SAME movie/game! Sure, it looks a little sharper, but is that really, honestly worth buying again?
I still contend that anyone who wanted to play GoW I & II would have already played them on a PS2. If you, for some bizarre reason, didn't own a PS2, then you probably aren't a gamer. Go home, grandma.
Then we have those who DID play it on a PS2 and for some reason are still interested in this. Must be nice having so much extra time on your hands. All sorts of great games out there, and you want to re-play the GoWs because they might look a little better on an HDtv? Hell, these games looked incredible when they first came out.
so, um, yeah....
*takes a chill pill*

Same reaction as Prime. Why would they even consider bringing back the Ocean King Temple? Even a "improved" version?
I also agree with Dice in that this has to be amazing awesome to even get some interest out of me. So far it looks like Blah. The whole trains thing makes me think they're shooting for the 5 year old demo.

I also recall the music being horrible and repetitive. Every dungeon pretty much had the same boring bgm. NOT cool.
Yeah, I pretty much wrote this off right after it was announced.

2232  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Age: Origins on: November 07, 2009, 11:34:58 AM
I actually agree with Prime. I am VERY interested in how the game looks and FEELS. The screen shots really haven't done much for me. It all looks so...generic. In my own interests, I have grown beyond generic fantasy. Hopefully this pans out to be more than that.
I enjoyed Mass Effect for the sci-fi setting, action-oriented battles, and great dialog. The ridiculous amount of time spent rendering the individual characters was lost on me. I would rather have had that time spent on making the environments more organic and/or artistic. Anyway...My enjoyment of ME is the reason I am interested in Dragon Age. I'll wait and see what you all think before buying it. Then again, a lot of people liked Oblivion, and those types of games bore me to death, so...we'll see.

Enjoying Uncharted. I'm really digging the crazy wall climbing, and death defying leaps that poor Nathan has to take. I've fallen to my death several times, but only due to my own bad timing. The control is really well done. I could do without the overabundance of shootouts, though. Plus they seem to throw the same group of guys at you every time.
