1981  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Short, easy, but cool point & click on: January 05, 2010, 01:12:52 PM
OK, so this is mighty easy, and it'll only take you a few minutes, but maybe that's a good thing!   I just liked it a bunch and wanted to share.  Its music is cool and the graphics are more than cool, IMHO.

I have to say - I've really been considering selling off most of my comics.  I'd just hang onto the issues I really love.  Only thing is I'm not sure how to go about it.

Now the tough decision of who to keep in my party.

Whew - I'm glad you thought to do that, because I forgot that's where she came from.  She's my archer who won't freaking keep using her bow.  Argh.  Gonna stop giving her backup weapons.

I think I've done pretty much all there is to do here, so it's time to leave this town for greater pastures.

Dude - bit of a spoiler here, but if you want cage-man to join your party, don't leave town.  You can never go back.

Bahaha! This trailer is worth watching just for Mickey's Japanese voice.


Mickey's, Donald's, and Goofy's voices all sound hilarious in Japanese.

I have the Japanese soundtracks to KH 1 & 2, and they crack me up every time.
1986  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Your Top 10 RPGs of the last decade? on: January 01, 2010, 12:24:24 PM
I hate to spoil this, but... after we finish our game of the year proceedings, the staff is planning to do a "best of the decade" feature.  (I don't want us to look like we ripped off Lard's idea.) :D

I'm really tempted to tell you some stuff about the discovery process - how exactly we're remembering what was released then and such - but I'm going to save it for the feature. 

Oh, and we've also talked about giving you a "worst of" list, which is always its own kind of fun.

Haha - that's what happened with me and Dragon Age: Origins. I had to download the bonus content I got codes for in my copy, and of course, the PS3 won't do that if I'm playing.  Then add on the installation time for the game... it was tough to wait!
1988  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: (Article)Opinion: 2009 - The Last Days of the Japanese RPG? on: December 29, 2009, 04:01:04 PM
One of my favorite video games this year is inFAMOUS.  I think the game is fantastic.  Does it reinvent the wheel?  No.  But it is a beautifully crafted wheel.

inFamous was one of my favorites for the year too. I think it has the best sandbox world I've played. GTA can suck it.

Thirded.  That game was the reason I wanted a PS3, and it delivered.  Not sure if it was my absolute favorite game of the year - too hard to remember everything I played - but it's way up there.  Played through it twice, start to end, and I don't do that too often.
1989  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bioware founder says JRPGs "lack evolution" on: December 28, 2009, 08:09:07 PM
I just finished DA:O last night... I can assure you, he shouldn't be talking.

Hahaha - I'm playing that right now.  You're right.  Of course, I don't think they were trying to evolve things - just do an outstanding job with the stuff that already existed.

Dios - nice hat!  I'm a hat guy myself.  They're coming back.
1991  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Intel designs "Programmable Matter" on: December 28, 2009, 12:04:36 PM
Not to worry - they said things like "it's in the early developmental stages" and "we're on the edge of discovery."  So... we can't really do any of that stuff yet.
1992  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Legend of the Princess (free Zelda inspired 2d RPG game) on: December 28, 2009, 12:02:13 PM
I think Fei meant that as a compliment to the game...
1993  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Steam Sale on: December 28, 2009, 12:01:31 PM
Too bad if you guys missed it but

Torchlight was on sale for $5 two days ago

This game is worth it though, its my first point and click dungeon crawler besides like.. space siege which sucked. 

Holy crap - I thought I got a good deal at $10!
1994  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Smoking makes you gay, study says on: December 28, 2009, 12:00:18 PM
EDIT: Pathetic story.  A few years back, a distant cousin of mine (or so I'm told) in India went out to a balcony to smoke a cigarette, leaned back against the balcony a little too far, and fell to his death.  He was in his mid-30s at the time and left behind a wife and a couple of young kids. 

Wow - you always hear things like "smoking kills," but somehow, I can't imagine that anyone thinks of possibilities like that when they say it.  You know, just seeing the smokers huddled outside the building when it was 10 below zero was enough to convince me that I'm never, ever interested in smoking.
1995  Media / The Soundroom / Re: What headphones do you use? on: December 28, 2009, 11:58:13 AM
I took a pro's advice and bought a pair of AKG K271s. They'll set you back about $250, but you'll never have to buy a pair of headphones ever again. They're physical construction is absolutely brilliant and impossible to damage. It's built like a fucking suspension bridge, nothing can damage it. The sound is perfect, they feel great, and for studio recording, they even have an ingenious little shutoff switch so that when you take them off your head, the sound stops.

I used to be a Senn man, loved the seclusion of my 280Pros, but they COMPLETELY fell apart. Senn is a great company for their acoustic work: both mics and headphones SOUND great. But they're physical build is like cheap children's toys. Within 8 months, the top bracket cracked, and before a year and a half, the electrical connections started breaking down. Terrible physical design, not very comfortable either.

I don't think there's any audio company besides Shure (which doesn't make headphones) with a better reputation than AKG. You'll pay for it though.

This is good to know - when I need a new set (hopefully a long time from now), I'll have to check out the AKGs.

Don't know if you're making a distinction, but although Shure doesn't make any headphones (over the ear), they do make earphones (inside the ear):

My friends who have the Shures say they're outstanding.
