downloaded the demo for the original Uncharted. I am a bit let down after playing it. The game looks good. It controls fairly well(the sixaxis stuff threw me for a loop). But so far it's just been one big shootout. This is made worse by the fact that I suck at this type of game play, especially without any type of lock on. Might as well be playing an FPS. Perhaps someone can reassure me that there is more to this game, and that the demo was just trying to appeal to the action crowd?
I want puzzles and exploration. I want friggin' Indian Jones.

I am intrigued by this game, but have zero intention of playing it due to the much talked about difficulty. When John(Keeper X) even stresses the difficulty of a game, I take notice. He is superhuman when it comes to games. The man will finish a game in 13 hours that might take me 40. Thing is, he doesn't go around claiming that all these games are easy, and inferring that everyone else is a pansy ass for not doing the same.
Gen, obviously you are very good at games. Or at least you have a lot of time to be able to get good at them. We get it. Some of us will never be as good due to just plain sucking(me) and/or time constraints(me and I'm sure many others).
It may or may not be intended, but you come off as having a "holier than thou" attitude. If you could just dial it down a notch, that would be great.

note: Sorry eds. I'll be quiet now.

MGS4 -
Code:
I know this is just wrong to say, but DAMN Naomi is hot. I would say she qualifies for hottest video game gal ever.
anyway...
I get bored when they start yapping about nano-machines and other bio-gibberish.
Beat the Octo-machine girl. Feel bad for Snake. I wonder if he'll off himself or not.
Now I have to "track" Naomi. No problem there.

My town is actually pretty big(Pop: 140,000+) so I know there's all sorts of things I'm missing out on.
I've been doing more and more biking, which I find to be a great way to explore and see the city.
I've discovered that my city has all sorts of bike trails, including a 20 mile loop that connects several forest preserves. I've biked through some of it, and look forward to seeing the rest.
Fall is awesome for biking.

MGS4 - Should probably just code the whole thing:
Code:
So now we have The colonel bangin' Rose, who was the annoying girlfriend of Raiden from MGS2. Not bad. Then I get Raiden/Jack calling me. This can only be bound for tragedy.
I want to fight a boss of some sort. The boss encounters have always been my favorite part of the MGS games. I get tired of sneaking around.

played the demo of Valkyria Chronicles and loved it. Kinda makes me think of it as a next gen Shining Force. I would buy it right now, but the wife may be getting it for me for my birthday, so I have to wait.

Deadgirl - Well, that was different. I was having a hard time buying into the actions of everyone involved. Sure, some of it is plausible(I DO remember my teen years), but full suspension of common sense must be done in order to get anything out of this movie.
Plus, so many things go unexplained. Frustrating.
2393  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New Information about Final Fantasy XIII on: October 03, 2009, 10:30:21 AM
wow. That new trailer revealed so much more than I had known before. Actually, I think it reveals a bit too much. This seems pretty damn epic, and after this I will no longer be watching these things. Less I know the better.
Looks and sounds amazing to me. The voices work fine. Not perfect, of course, but they all seem to fit the characters.

As for gamers selecting easy, time could be an issue too.  Not everyone has the time to complete a 35+ hour RPG in a week.  Sometimes it takes a month or two or six!, especially if you're juggling a job, family, school, real life stuff.  So when real life's frustrating you six ways to Sunday, you probably don't want your fun escapism distraction to frustrate you even further. 



Exactly this.

Most rpgs I've played don't have difficulty settings.
When they do: Traditionally, I would always pick the normal setting, mainly out of fear of shame. Nowadays, if a game has an easy setting, I'm going to pick it. I play games more for the experience, not for the challenge.
I started up Tales of Vesperia and was expecting difficulty settings, but there wasn't any. Then I saw that you can change the battle difficulty. I kinda like that. Keep it on normal, and if I have a lot of trouble with a boss or something, then I can change it.
Mass Effect I changed everything to the easiest settings. I loved the game. Sure, it wasn't especially challenging, but I enjoyed the experience.
Games like MGS, Gears of War, DMC, or God of War, I would never make it past the first few levels without easy or casual modes. By using easy I am able to enjoy the game. I would think the developers would prefer people actual play their game, than avoid it due to being too hard.
I'll never understand people who play games on hard(or higher) modes. You must have a pretty stress free life, if you enjoy that kind of difficulty. To each his own, I suppose.

I was playing MGS4, thinking it's a bit boring, when it suddenly became all sorts of awesome.
Code:
What the hell are those mechanical creature things? The one reminds me of Doc Oc.  I imagine I will get to fight them all as bosses. Very cool

Now I just wish I could get out of this friggin war zone. Too much brown and grey.
2397  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Fable 2 "Episodic", Fable III announced on: September 29, 2009, 12:19:58 PM
Eh while I didnt care for Fable, Fable 2 was pretty fun.  Im looking forward to number 3, course I never really payed attention to all the crap he talkeda bout, so *shrug*
Same with me. I never read a word of what he said about Fable II, and quite enjoyed it.


If they ditch the rubbish battle system from Fable II, then Fable III should be pretty sweet.
Huh? I thought the battle system was the best part of the game. Made me feel like a kick-ass hero. Fast-paced and fun.

How about some kind of challenge in the next one. The first 2 could be completed by a druken, blindfolded, one-armed chimp.
This is one of the reasons why I LIKE the Fable games. I suppose it could be a little more challenging, though.

I don't know why but this seems relevant here.

Quote
As day length shortens (technically, it's the increasing dark period) it stimulates blooming in Coleus, so fall plants are much more determined to bloom than they were in summer. There is no practical way for the hobbyist to prevent the plant from maturing sexually, but pinching the blooms will go a long way toward keeping the plant growing with the vigor of the intermediate (teenager) stage.

Imagine if humans worked like that.
ha. Plant geeks unite!
ahem...anyway...
I'm going to go pinch a teenager and see what happens. I predict lawsuit(what? You think I'd pinch a dude?).
2399  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Square Enix on: September 22, 2009, 02:49:26 PM
Hey what happens when the current gaming generation grows up and becomes more interested in salaries and babies than their vidyagames, and simultaneously the gaming systems get too expensive for the younger generation? We gonna see another videogame crash?

(Or are people going to do the smart thing and decide against every growing up, because that leads to being fat, depressed, and uninteresting?)
I've been married for ten years and have an eight year old. I've played games all the way from when I was a kid until now. It may have slowed a bit here and there, but I've never stopped.
Babies are not more interesting than video games. Anyone who says otherwise is lying.

MGS4 - It's been awhile since I've played an MGS game(whenever 3 came out) so it took me a while to get used to the mechanics again. Beautiful looking game. Especially all the little details. I anticipate a crazy story to follow. I just met Drebin.

Wipeout HD - Wow, is this awesome. Super slick graphics, fast races, thumping tunes. Exactly what I was hoping for. I still don't understand why the 360 doesn't have some type of futuristic racer.
