2266  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Diablo 3? on: June 26, 2008, 11:06:25 AM
Quote from: "Serene Prophet"
Maybe its some cross over game, Diablo vs Starcraft vs Warcaft: Blizzard Bloodbath.


Starry World of Diablocraft?
2267  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Diablo 3? on: June 25, 2008, 11:13:10 AM
Oh, MAN.  I (as you may guess) was a HUGE fan of Diablo II.  Played it off and on for like 2 years.  I have it installed on a 2 gig USB drive right now (with a no-cd patch, I could plug it into any PC and just play it).

I think at this point, they've borrowed enough elements of Diablo for Warcraft that even if they thought making a WoD game was a good idea, it'd probably be just too samey.

No matter what, you guys either just made or ruined my day, depending on whether this interpretation of events turns out to be correct or not. :)

I think I'd have to buy that if they threw Kratos in... and I don't even own a PS3.

now they don't take me seriously because I'm not hot enough to work as a model/pornstar :/


Don't sell yourself short - there are lots of kinds of porn out there!

Oh, wait.  That's probably the wrong kind of encouragement. ;)


My wife agrees with you, though - she's been into games for a long time now, and has seen kind of the same curve happen.
2270  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / The Incredible Hulk on: June 24, 2008, 09:59:32 AM
Going to see the new one tomorrow, so can't comment yet.  I do want to say one thing, though - I've seen people elsewhere complaining about the fact that Banner has father issues in the Ang Lee movie.  Just to be perfectly clear, according to the comics, he has HUGE father issues.  They're a big part of what made him the Hulk (as opposed to some other kind of monster).  It just doesn't make for what people are looking for in a comic book movie.

Quote from: "terrencelee"
the only issue i had with the judge system is how you couldnt tell if you were about to break the law with certain actions


Just what I came back to say.  I actually thought having restrictions was fun - made you think about alternate strategies and kept you from using the same team with the same moves in every battle.  I hated exactly the aspect terrencelee mentions, though.

You didn't play the first, did you?

The only things that didn't suck about that game were the graphics and the sound. When a S-RPG fails at basic gameplay, you know something's wrong. Don't even get me started on the plot and characters, because I may end up using words that you don't know, and I really don't want you wasting time looking their definitions up in a dictionary.


Are you kidding me?  You make a statement like you did, and when someone makes a (totally justified) sarcastic reply, this is where you go?  A comment that boils down to "yeah, well you're stupid?"

Let me teach you something important here.  People's feelings about games are HIGHLY subjective.  Sometimes, an individual will like a game that other people didn't like, and sometimes an individual will hate a game that other people liked.  

FFTA's average rating is 87%, meaning that your opinion is actually the outlier, not the norm, but even if your opinion was the norm, disagreeing with it wouldn't mean that the other person is stupid.  It would just mean that they have a different taste in video games.  No matter how I've tried, I've never managed to love a GTA game, and a ton of people love those.  I'm not stupid, I just like different games than they do.


See how I did that?  I made a point without ad-hominem attacks.  I used big words and assumed you were smart enough to understand them.  Sure, I could have made a crack like "I bet you don't have many friends," but I just don't see how that improves my argument.

For the record, while I wouldn't call FFTA the best game I ever played, I really enjoyed it.  It's actually the game that convinced me to give FFT a second chance when the PSP port came out.  Yeah - I originally hated the game that's universally agreed to be the better one (dang translation problems), and liked the "worse" game enough to give it another shot.  As my review shows, I was glad that I did - FFT on PSP made me realize why everyone liked it so much.
2273  The Rest / General Discussions / This is the saddest thing I've heard of in quite some time. on: June 21, 2008, 10:57:59 AM
I saw a little blurb about this on the news last night.  Gotta agree - this is made up of about 8000 kinds of wrongness.
2274  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Molly the Were-Zompire Puzzle/RPG - Just a game I'm working on: June 20, 2008, 08:01:42 PM
I like text stuff, but mostly just as a quick thing.  I don't tend to play them for long periods.  However, there is definitely still a text-based gaming community alive and well.
2275  Media / The Soundroom / Song of the Moment: 15th Anniversary Edition on: June 18, 2008, 09:34:20 AM
I have it... but I mostly use it to listen to stand up comedy and crap like that.
2276  The Rest / General Discussions / The Slow Death of the Arcade on: June 16, 2008, 10:38:28 AM
I love laser tag!  I've even gone with the folks from work a time or two.  Best "team building exercise" I've ever done, and no one came away with welts (which I think of as an advantage over paintball).
2277  Media / Single-Player RPGs / The Legend of Dragoon on: June 16, 2008, 10:35:26 AM
Count me among those who didn't care for it.  I think it was the card thing that really annoyed me... but it's been too long for me to be sure.
2278  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Fallout games coming to GameTap on: June 13, 2008, 12:23:17 PM
Dang... I've never gotten the chance to play 2 or Tactics, and have always wanted to (I love Fallout a ton).  Gotta check out their site and see what it costs to sign up, as this might be the thing that makes me do so.
2279  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / ...They're remaking "The Prisoner"? on: June 13, 2008, 12:21:43 PM
I'd watch it for Christopher Eccleston - after Dr. Who and Heroes, I'm a fan of his.

Quote from: "Prime Mover"
the first time, I always listen to an album straight through.


Glad to know I'm not the only one.  I do the same thing with video games - the very first time I load one up, I watch all of the pre-game things (you know, the company logos and other start menu lead-in stuff).  

I may never listen to that CD start-to-finish again, but I somehow feel I owe it to the artist to do it once.
