For the record, I love Etrian Odyssey IV:

(Dumb) people often equate sexism in a work of art with sexism in the creator(s) of that work. Such is the case with TW2.

For the record, not being a woman doesn't make it okay for sexism to be funny.

sex innuendos (and is not that big of a deal anyway ._.)

Not that big of a deal, eh? Well, you don't happen to be a woman.

ME 3 is "a single player game" confirmed by a moderator on the forums!

My problem with multiplayer is that 1) it detracts from the single player game
Nope.  Several people already mentioned Uncharted 2 as a perfect example of how wrong your statement is before you even said it, but I guess that's inconvenient to your desire to spew FUD and so it's easier to just pretend that no one mentioned it.

and/or 2) it affects how the game is designed, esp. for co-op. Look at something like Borderlands, where abilities are geared toward multiplayer. Skills and such can become fixated on co-op play. and
Maybe it's because Borderlands was by design, a First Person Shooter in the gameplay style of Diablo whose emphasis was multiplayer.  Not exactly a good example to use to make your case.

Quote
3) it perpetuates multi-player.
What is this supposed to even mean.

Quote
As more multi-player games are made and extensions put on regularly single-player games, it will only snowball and grow. Eventually single-player games could be extinct if developers determine that only multi-player sells. The emphasis is already turning toward that.
Ahahaha.  More FUD.  Rest assured, single player gaming experiences aren't going anywhere.  Having multi-player tacked on as an optional component hurts no one.  The ability for other friends to perhaps control squad-mates in combat for Mass Effect 3 if anything, would be a fantastic optional feature.

Quote
There is no story in multi-player games. There is no artistic experience, and thus if multi-player wins out over single-player, video games will cease to be on the same level as books, film, and music.
Ahahaha.  Seriously, wow.  Story has been slowly but surely taking more of a role in MMORPGs, and ironically enough, the same company behind Mass Effect is developing The Old Republic, an MMORPG that will have such a heavy story focus that Bioware has numerous full time writers that have been penning material for over two years, all of which will be delivered through insane amounts of voice acting complete with cutscenes using the same presentation style and conversation trees that are present in Mass Effect, Dragon Age, and other Bioware products.

And as before, other players being able to control squad-mates in Mass Effect 3, or hell, Mass Effect 2 would be awesome.  Same exact cinematic story experience, except with friends.  Sounds like a winner to me.

They'll be more like board games. Scrabble might be fun and unique, but it's not a powerful experience.
You have no idea what you are talking about.  Seriously, free your mind and open it up to possibilities.

You're right. You convinced me.

Still no confirmation of multiplayer or not. Just a sweet trailer and Shepard being a badass.

Regardless, people are assuming ME3 has multiplayer, but I honestly don't think it will now that I've seen the trailer. I think Bioware will end it with dignity. After that, they can fuck up however they want and I won't care. (Well, a little maybe).

This could be fantastic.

They've lost two. VC is the leading runner for disappointment of the year. I'd review it and bash it, but I didn't beat it.

The Lady Stinger is adorable in a weird way.

People are comparing it to Persona because it's begging to be compared to Persona.

I am a man who plays as male characters so I can watch their ass the entire time. There aren't many worth watching, but a few.
14  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Valkyria Chronicles II on: September 09, 2010, 09:41:04 PM
It tries so hard to be Persona and fails so thoroughly. The combat is still fun, but the battles aren't designed nearly as well as they were in VCI. Most feel the same. And they seem to think making it more complex (weather, etc.) makes it better. Wrong.
15  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Age 2 on: August 07, 2010, 11:35:51 PM
Please let it be there in SOME FORM. Please.
