1891  The Rest / General Discussions / Don LaFontaine dead. on: September 04, 2008, 11:53:07 AM
Few days late but I guess I might as well post it.

Don't think I need to post a link to anything. In case you don't know who LaFontaine is, turn on the TV, and you'll probably hear his voice. Think of the phrase "In a world...", and what voice do you hear? Yeah, that's him.

The world just lost a whole lot of epicness. What a shame.

If you're going to go see this movie, buy a ticket to another movie and then sneak into this one. Those fucking morons don't deserve any more money.

Nope, all the Scary Movie writers split off and tried their own hand in making their own movies.

The Scary Movie series on its own was already pretty mediocre. Splitting them up just makes a bunch of things that are not only bad movies, but just disgusting in general. Complete absence of jokes and referencing the fact that famous people in real life have died are not funny things.

Uh, out of all the things that you could complain about in the game you're going to complain about level scaling? How has that ever been a negative feature in a hack-and-slash game, unless the game has a large enough variety of environments (IE MMORPG-variety) to actually justify not scaling levels so that you end up killing monsters in one hit, which doesn't show anything other than the fact that you're higher level.

Meet The Spartans had 0% until a single reviewer decided that he was tired of his job and decided to give it a positive review.

Really, is this rating surprising ANYONE? :P
1897  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Kevin Pereira defends Too Human on: August 31, 2008, 12:39:04 AM
Oh no...does someone like a game that you happen to not like?

mediocre game considering it was in development for so long.

How long a game is in development should have absolutely no bearing on how you rate the game whatsoever. For the record though, I'm not even sure why he's ranting, there's a few sites or magazines out there that did give Too Human a pretty high rating, and most of the negative reviews still concede its an average game. As fun as it might be when you get into combat, it's not one of those games you should be spending $60. Original Games that are purely about the gameplay are usually found in Virtual Console, or they don't cost 60 damn bucks.

Are you kidding me? Too Human is absolutely worse in every way except graphics when compared to Diablo & Diablo 2.

He only said it's essentially the same concept (Which it is, it's in the same class of game as PSO where you just do the same thing over and over to beef up a character). Diablo series certainly doesn't have the same glitches and has more balanced gameplay, though.

You should come back Parn. Then we'll all laugh at you.

At least I will.

I remember when they changed it so that searching through seeking people sets the level to any level like a year ago, instead of just searching +-2 levels from yours. Back then it made no sense and was a retarded feature, and people had to go through the hassle of changing the level settings themselves...

And now, it might actually be useful.

EDIT: Then again, with all the people running around seeking meripos at 75, we're going to have to adjust it to search people within a reasonable range anyway. Higher-level players arn't going to want to play with lower level players since that would result in less xp/hour, unless they're a usually unwanted job like THF or something.

HOLY SHIT. This is the best update news I've heard in a long, long time. Between lowering dynamis and limbus cost, adding relic armor for TOAU jobs and final updates to Mythic Weapons, this has got to be the best update I've seen a long while.

I can't wait.
1900  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Diablo 3? on: August 24, 2008, 11:53:25 AM
Reminds me of all the people who do nothing but complain about movie sequels/adaptations coming out the past few years (Die Hard 4, IJ4, Transformers, etc) and how they "shame" the previous work. That really gets on my nerves.
1901  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Rumor: Mega Man 9 being made on: August 24, 2008, 07:03:02 AM
These are just the item replicator items (items bought with the screws). I wouldn't mind them not bringing the charge shot back, but I do think having the slide would be nice. Of course all the stages are designed without the slide in mind I presume, so I guess it wouldn't be as big a deal.

I'm leaning more towards a boomerang weapon to get certain screws rather than the slide though.

Items revealed a few weeks ago, but I guess I should post it here for those who are interested:

Energy Can
Mystery Can
Eddie Call
Energy Balancer
Beat Call
Shock Guard
Guard Up
Costume (Roll)
Hairstyle Book

Shock Guard gives defense against spikes, guard up halves damage. They said the costume will let you have a roll sprite when playing, which I suppose is some random gimmick people have wanted...implementing it through cross-dressing Megaman is not very graceful I say. :P

Guess this means no slide or charge shot, even through the item replicator...of course those things might be something added in upon a second playthrough?

Reminds me of the lemonade stand episode from The Boondocks cartoon.
1904  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Does anyone here LIKE Eternal Sonata? on: August 21, 2008, 12:53:50 PM
From what I've seen the story is yet another tired boring anime-cliche story so many JRPGs give us constantly. I know I like the art and music but outside of that it doesn't do enough different for me to really notice it among so many other games.
1905  Media / Single-Player RPGs / New Suikoden Game? on: August 21, 2008, 12:10:11 PM
I wouldn't want the series to go back to the second game's graphics- while the fifth game was seriously lacking detail I would actually prefer them doing that instead of going back to full 2d.

But I guess if they're going for DS...yeah, I guess 2d would be better since almost all the 3d I've seen on the DS is just painful to look at.

To me, the only thing good about V was the story. The game itself, as well as a large chunk of the stars, was pretty boring. In fact, that's the way all the Suikodens feel to me. The battle system has never really wow'd me in any way. The only one where I had a little more fun with the battle system was III (Yeah I guess I'm weird like that).

As for this game, it looks incredibly boring, especially the characters. I can't quite put my finger on it, but they feel even less interesting than the characters of any past Suikoden. The battle system just looks like Suiko IV's, which makes me scratch my head because as far as I know, everyone considers that the worst of the series.

Konami are this gen's Sega.

And here I thought Sega was this gen's Sega.
