2686  The Rest / General Discussions / The importance of gaming in a potential girl/boyfriend on: July 13, 2006, 02:14:55 PM
For me, it's more about respect than anything. I don't really care if you like my gaming habit, or even partake in it, just don't disrespect it, or me.

Fortunately, my wife DOES enjoy gaming, and has never thought less of me for choosing it as a hobby.
I believe, while it is good to share some interests, it is equally important to have something for yourself.

...And OMG, Keira Knightley!


Indeed my friend. Indeed.


I agree with you guys here. Although, I still thinks she needs to eat a bit more.

I'll see the movie in a week or two. Just wanted to add my 2 cents on Ms. Hotness.

Finished God of War. Fun, entertaining game.  Nothing complicated about it at all. My kind of game.

Popped in Suiko V to get back in the rpg groove. About to head off to Stormfist.

Still playing God of War. Still enjoying it despite falling about 10 million times trying to get through the "Blades of Hades" section.  I am now in the Cliffs of Madness area.

Thanks for the reminder. I've been meaning to order it. I expect it to simply be an extension of his site, which I am consistenly amused by.

Watched The Brothers Grimm about a week ago. Odd movie. Started out kinda goofy, then got all serious towards the end. The movie didn't know what it wanted to be. Just odd.

Watched Brokeback Mountain Sat. night. I was expecting this to be a lot better than it was. Not a bad movie, just very sloooooooow moving. I give those two guys a lot of credit for taking on these roles. I don't like how the resolution was presented, but I understand it.

I like this James fellow. Plus, I thought the term "RPG lore" fit the topic just fine. Nothing wrong with taking ones hobby seriously, even if it is "just" video games. Some of us have been playing games for over 20 years now. I'd say I'd have to be pretty serious about a hobby to keep doing it that long.
I've heard plenty a time about FF saving Square from bankruptcy/shutting down. Never thought much about til now.

Quote from: Jimmy
I was running around killing Liquid Metal and King Metal Slimes for about four hours last night.

You say this like it's an easy thing to do. I think I was only able to kill a couple liquids, and the few Kings I ran into took off right away.
I chuckled when you wrote how you were tired of the game after a couple weeks(maybe?). Play it for 96 hours over 5 months and come back to me.

Anyway...
I am still playing God of War. Doing Posiedons challenge now. This game is bad ass.

Playing God of War. I'm enjoying the simplicity of it all. Every now and then you need a "Beat the shit out of everything and anything" game. This is very well done. I am saved on the rooftops of Athens.
I bought Nan Parappa the Rapper after listening to her complain about not owning for quite a while. That game looks damn pixelly(word?) now, but she likes it well enough. You gotta believe!
2696  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Fall/Winter 2006 RPGs - Are you ready? on: June 09, 2006, 11:36:11 AM
I'm just looking forward to a few.
FFXII - I DID like the demo, and look forward to another great story.
Rogue Galaxy - simply due to the premise, and the fact that Level 5 made it.
I don't want to hear comparisons to RPGS, I want to know how it compares to Dark Cloud 2? I LOVED DC2.
Xenosaga III - I never played II, due to so much bad press, but I really liked I. Hopefully III will be  a return to goodness.
Tales of the Abyss - If it's anything like TOS, I'm there.
PSU - only if the single player is good. I don't do the online thing.
Then theres Zelda, of course.

DQVIII - played almost 3 hours last night. Clock is now just over 93 hours.
Code:
Played through the black citadel. beat Rap, then Ruin. Now I've gotta find a bunch of orbs. This game doesn't know when to end.


I'm not as enamored with the game as some people around here.
Too damn long. Music is ok in the beginning, but gets tiresome when you hear the same track in every freaking town and dungeon.
Jimmy, I'm not sure about spears as I started out using boomerangs, then wisely switched over to swords.
Jessicas Sex Appeal is a good thing to juice up. The last thing she gets is pretty damn good.

EDIT: DQ VIII is complete. final time was 95:33. This was without doing any real amount of sidequests or messing around with much of anything. I'm a slow player who played a long game.
I'm pretty happy with the ending, but also a bit melancholy. I've been playing this game since Christmas! I'm going to miss it.
Code:
Finding the orbs was pretty easy and not very time consuming, so I can't complain. I found Rapthorne to be pretty easy. Hero and Yangus attack while Jess and Angelo heal. repeat a zillion times = Rapthorne dead.
I liked the typical adventure type ending where the beautiful princess runs away with the vagabond. Medea is one hot piece of.....polygons?

Good, not great, game.
I picked up God of War, so that is next.
Suiko V is my next RPG.

Waking Life - bizarre movie, if you want to call it that. At first I was turned off by the funky animation and obvious lack of a story, but by the end I was liking it a bit. Kinda pretentious and preachy, but interesting none the less.

Finished Neverwhere and have started reading The Real Story by Stephen Donaldson. First book in some long sci-fi series a co-worker of mine let me borrow.

Quote from: "Miho"

But when the day comes that I tie the knot, I'm afraid the lady is going to put me in my place when it comes to video games. :P


Good thing my wife likes games as much as I do, huh?
Being 31, married, with a 5 year old son, I definitely do not have as  much time to play as I used to. I actually thought my current systems would be the last ones I buy, but some of the new games are just looking too damn good. I figure as long as I have the interest, and the desire for the escape that gaming brings, I will continue to play them.
As Always, DC brings up a good point. There's no way I'm playing another epic rpg after the marathon that is DQVIII. I'm gonna be getting back into RE 4 and probably picking up God of War. THEN I'll be able to enjoy Suiko V.
