Gen is one unintentionally funny guy.
Still playing DMC4 - on mission 15. Not big on backtracking through levels already done with Nero, but whatever.
I'm reading good things about Shadow Complex. Started up a trial download, but it was taking too long so I stopped it. I'll finish it up tonight or tomorrow. All the Metroid comparisons have me intrigued.

Will some please explain what the hell a "rogue-like" game is? I'm tired of hearing that term. Are we talking dungeon crawlers here?

Devil May Cry 4 - Mission 12. Now I've got Dante to kick ass with. I actually really liked how Nero controlled, so it may take a little time to get used to using Dante. Either way, the game continues to kick ass, despite the bizarre attempt at a story.
I've got my copy of Vesperia staring at me, so that's next after DMC. I think. I may want to play something less action-oriented in between.

As long as I'm not constantly hounded by women looking for a ring.

...

In the game, too.

Sweet!  It's still $300 smackers, but I'm not waiting any longer now. OK, so I suppose I DO have to wait until Sept., but that's ok.
MGS4, Valkyria, Uncharted, GoW III, plus whatever else I'm forgetting.
About goddamn time.

DMC4 - I'm about to do mission 11. Unless I'm playing on easy these games have always kicked my ass, so I was worried when an easy mode didn't pop up. There's only human and demon(devil? something with a d) modes. I haven't had much trouble at all on human so far.
I just love beating the crap out of everything with crazy combos. I'm really impressed with the graphics, too. Too bad the music is either boring bgm or crappy grunge rock. oh well.

Watched Zack and Miri make a porno Sat. night. Nowhere near as funny as I was hoping for. Plus, the whole "let's be crude for the sake of being crude" thing just doesn't work for me(anymore?). Someone needs to tell Kevin Smith that crude does not equal funny. Then you have the uber-predictable ending.
blah

I'd need to get checked if I liked asshat-ery, fetishized and stereotypical brown people, failed dialog and just plain annoying characters.

Dudette*

I was replying to GrimReality.  You snuck your post in last minute and I didn't see it.
Me? I take it you were being snarky about me joining the thread despite not harboring any real hatred? Or the comment was aimed at my Kid hatred? Either way, I was confused by your comment at first, too. Never occurred to me that it was meant for my post.
carry on...
2469  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Most Annoying Heroine!! on: August 12, 2009, 09:21:17 AM
I actually liked Rinoa, and will never understand the hate. Then again, I don't remember a damn thing she said. It was more about her look.
Heck, I liked Aeris, too.
I don't remember Alfina from Grandia III.
I found Shion a little annoying, but it really didn't bother me.

The only one I can think of is Kid from Chrono Cross. Mainly due to being named Kid. Awful character.

do you ever wonder what the characters you like and dont like says about you? i think on this sometimes and notice a correlaltion in my own real life relationships.

You hear video game characters talking about you behind your back like your real life "friends/family"? Oh boy...  :P
That's what I thought she meant at first, too. Then I read it again and realized she's just asking how the characters we like/don't like mirror our real world relationships. Like if a person really has a thing for 3' tall furries with 4 arms, 6 eyes, and a penchant for chili cheese Fritos. What does that say about them?

...

Or you already knew that, and was just messing with her.

Having a blast with DMC4. Think I'm in level 5 now.

I keep meaning to DL FF: The After Years, but I don't do it, because its a pain. I have to disconnect the dsl from the computer and bring it upstairs to connect to the Wii. Not THAT big a deal, but...

I ordered Tales of Vesperia. Only $30 at Amazon now.

Finally saw X-Men: The Last Stand. Wow, that pretty much sucked. The writing alone was abysmal. So many contrived situations(Ice man vs. Fire man!). Plus a total lack of caring or emotion when there should have been a LOT, considering what happens. Ugh.
2473  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: top 5 protagonists/antagonists in rpg history! on: August 10, 2009, 10:33:52 AM
No.
*supposed to be a pic of Kain here*


God, I love(d) those games. Kain and Raziel are just so damn cool and well done. The end of Defiance...the last confrontation between the two....wow.

These two fall under both antagonist and protagonist, so I'm covered with them.

to add a few more:
pros:
I'm a big fan of Luke from Tales of the Abyss.
Cecil from FFIV - original SNES version

Ants:
I'm totally with DC in regards to Dark Force. No development whatsoever, and yet so memorable. To this day, when I see a nasty storm on the horizon, I think of Dark Force.

edit: wheres the pic of Kain? whatever

I refuse to believe that this is SoA related. I will NOT get my hopes up only to have them dashed. I'm sure it's some stupid game that I will have no interest is. hmph.
2475  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: August 06, 2009, 11:46:03 AM
Slumdog Millionaire - It was alright I guess. A little more "gritty" than I was expecting, especially the first third or so in the slums.
Code:
I would have liked the end better if he hadn't won, but I understand why he did from a "fairy tale" perspective.
I was not impressed by the grown up Latikas acting, but everyone else was good. They needed to give us a bit more background on Salim, too, but it wasn't his story so I understand the lack thereof.
Not sure I'd call it best picture worthy.
