2491  The Rest / General Discussions / RPGFan Community Photo Thread: 2007 Edition on: May 20, 2008, 10:27:34 AM
Had been avoiding posting this... but people who know me in real life already know I'm here, so here's a picture I took of myself when I was in India this spring.  I'm kinda squinty because of the sun, but who cares?

2492  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / LCD vs. Plasma on: May 19, 2008, 11:25:26 AM
LCD is the way to go.  The issues Plasma had have been reduced, but LCD's still a better choice.  Burn-in and cost are the most easy to cite, but I believe there are refreshing issues as well - if something's not refreshing fast enough, you get blur.
2493  Media / Miscellaneous Games / A Ghostbusters game? WE GOT OOOOOOOOOONE! on: May 19, 2008, 10:57:18 AM

Am I the only one who's excited for this game?

Nope.  I'd probably put myself in the "cautiously optimistic" camp, but I'm definitely looking forward to it.

In the recent(-ish) Civil War storyline, the government finally made the superhero registration thing mandatory.  Every superpowererd person was supposed to tell the government who they really were.  Some thought it was the right thing to do, others didn't.  Tony was the leader of the side who said they should register.  He convinced Peter Parker to go public, following his example from a few years prior (Wikipedia says Tony Stark revealed his identity in 2002).

Captain America was the leader of those who said they shouldn't, which was supposed to be a real shocker, but was actually really obvious, mostly because he'd be the guy the company would think of as a "surprising" choice.  He ended up getting shot and killed at the end of the storyline.

Disgaea: Hour of Darkness - Just grinding right now, as I couldn't beat chapter 8 because no one could do damage to two of the enemies on the first stage (and I ran out of SP restorative items.)

Did you take out the geo panel thingys?  A quick reminder of the level from a walkthrough made me think that level might be a lot easier if you do.
2496  Media / Single-Player RPGs / RPGs and Homosexuality on: May 18, 2008, 12:09:37 AM
For some reason, this conversation just reminded me of Planescape: Torment.  Specifically, Fall-from-Grace, the succubus who runs the Brothel for Slaking Intellectual Lusts.  That was a cool portrayal of something sexual.

I also fall into the camp where some of my favorite characters are nothing like me.  I can't think of any games I've played where the character was a homosexual male (I'm a straight guy), so I can't think back to a game to see what my reaction to that particular difference was.  I liked Captain Jack in Doctor Who, though...

I'm not saying that I'm an angel with little white feathery wings...

Sorry - I see now that what I said could be read as a response to your post... but it wasn't. :)  I was just saying my own impressions.
2498  The Rest / The Bazaar / PSP - How much? on: May 16, 2008, 01:47:29 PM
Do you mean how much should you expect to pay for one?
2499  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Who watch Bleach? on: May 16, 2008, 01:46:20 PM
I watch it sometimes... but not always.  Depends on if I have Cartoon Network at the time.  (Hooray for some hotels!)

Hacking and slashing w/ friends can be fun, but alone, I find it a little repetitive.

But I <3 hacking & slashing! :)  I'll take the old "wait and see" approach on this one.
2501  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Penny-Arcade game can be played on practically everything! on: May 16, 2008, 01:43:23 PM
Quote from: "KeeperX"
Aha, but we're in the PC forum; to me, "practically anything" in the PC forum relates to video cards, etc.


First blood is well and truly yours. I admit defeat in the face of your superior "noticing the forum" skills. :)
2502  Media / Miscellaneous Games / The Torture Game on: May 15, 2008, 07:46:48 PM
Hooray!  I clicked the link, and it makes me sick!  I must have some redeeming characteristics after all!

Quote from: "valentine08"
can this game be played on PSP?

Head...meet Mr. Wall.

Well, I've gotta admit - I had a similar thought.  "Practically everything" to me would mean "almost every console out there, as well as most PCs."  Instead, it's on Xbox, PC, Linux, and Mac.

You, my Scottish friend, have just made my day.  Lewis Black is awesome. :)
2505  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Penny-Arcade game can be played on practically everything! on: May 13, 2008, 08:34:05 PM
Probably me too.  Gonna check it out, no question.
