I am actually but most of my humorous talent gets lost in translation, so to speak :P


Still playing Grimrock, Iīm on level 10 and while most battles are pretty easy (playing on normal), most puzzles arenīt. I was stuck in "the checkered room", simply because I didnīt transalte "checkered" correctly in my head...a well, the language-barrier gets me from time to time.

And now Iīll face the priests of mighty Cthulhu or something...at least thats what they look like...

Guitar Woman Apr 17th, 2012 12:10 AM

Dragon Quest VIII.

It's refreshing to see an RPG where my objectives aren't marked by a huge glowing arrow at all times, in case I'm the kind of person who gets lost in my own house; Skyrim and Oblivion both did this over Morrowind's "Yeah, that dungeon's like, south probably? I dunno, go find it, dickhead" approach, and I didn't really appreciate it because it meant less time navigating the world and getting sucked into it. DQ8 doesn't seem to have a lot of hand-holding in general, actually; once we got out of starterville my colleague got lost on the world map and I almost got my shit wrecked in the very first dungeon. Also, it looks fucking enormous and the comic relief is actually legitimately funny.

It's got potential and I'm really digging it so far, but if that little green asshole doesn't shut the fuck up about his horse daughter I'm going to punch his dick so hard he'll end up as the Cursed Queen, wark wark

Esuohlim Apr 17th, 2012 12:24 AM

I've got Dragon Quest VIII sitting on my shelf right now and I'm not sure how it got there. I'm thinking a friend brought it and left it but no one will tell me it's theirs WHICH MADE ME BELIEVE that it was a shitty game and someone was happy to finally rid themselves of it. So I never had the urge to try it out.

Guitar Woman Apr 17th, 2012 12:42 AM

You're probably not the kind of person who'd like it, honestly, since it's got the exact same art style as Dragonball Z and has a lot of Anime elements to it besides.

I'd skip it unless you were like really really into Final Fantasy as a kid; so far it seems like it's essentially a love letter to every good JRPG ever, only scaled up so grown-ups with brains actually find it challenging

Actually, I think Earthbound pretty much ripped off its entire engine from the Dragon Quest games, so, maybe give it a shot? It's not like you're paying for it.

Fathom Zero Apr 17th, 2012 12:47 AM

kahljorn Apr 17th, 2012 05:57 PM

Guitar Woman Apr 17th, 2012 07:26 PM

Actually compared to other games of its type DQ8 is pretty curt about battles

If you really want to see long-ass fights every single time you should play Final Fantasy 9, although I don't blame you if you end up wanting to stuff it down your garbage disposal. It's really bad.

Pentegarn Apr 17th, 2012 07:39 PM

Sounds like you need to speed up battle text in options

Mad Melvin Apr 18th, 2012 09:49 AM

Finished SH: Downpour and SH 2 & 3 in the HD collection. Good times. Now, for your viewing pleasure, I present the correct SH order from best to worst.

1. Silent Hill 2
2. Silent Hill
3. Downpour
4. Shattered Memories
5. Silent Hill 3
6. Homecoming
7. The Room

Haven't played Origins, but i'm under the impression i'm really not missing all that much.

OxBlood Apr 18th, 2012 10:54 AM

I would put it like this

The Room
Shattered Memories
SH3
SH2
SH1
blah.

:)

Guitar Woman Apr 18th, 2012 11:53 AM

Downpour better than 3? Homecoming better than anything? What the fuck are you smoking.

In reality it's:
SH1 > SH3 > The Room > Shattered Memories > SH2 > dogshit > Origins > Downpour > Shitcoming

there you go

Mad Melvin Apr 18th, 2012 11:59 AM

Silent Hill 3 brought nothing new to the table. Plus, the whole evil cult thing is kinda lame and the characters are pretty forgettable. I also really didn't like the subway station. Just as boring as the apartment complex in SH2. Good game, but not great. The Room started ok, but the fucking ghosts just oh my fucking god no. Did not like it at all. Homecoming had a horrible combat system (and there is too much fighting), but other than that it was ok.

EDIT: And I bet you haven't even played Downpour. The screen lags from time to time, but thats the only major issue with it. It feels fresh and exploring the town is awesome. The mini sidequests keep things interesting and I like the main storyline too. It is not scary at all, but the last creepy game in the series was SH1.

Yeah but it's fucking scary, arguably moreso than any other game in the series

Silent Hill 4 is awesome. Did you stop playing early on? You need to at least get to the Water Prison.

I played almost to the end, I think. That Walter Sullivan guy started chasing me everywhere and the ghosts just kept on coming. I have to applaud The Room for the monster design, which was above average. Especially the baby-faced things. But yeah, I don't like games where you have to run all the time or you die.

kahljorn Apr 18th, 2012 04:58 PM

i dont remember ff9 being as bad

Pentegarn Apr 18th, 2012 05:18 PM

The worst thing about FF9 was the uninteresting characters. None of them are likable or have stories that matter at all

Tadao Apr 18th, 2012 05:24 PM

I was working at Sotware ETC when FF7 came out and they gave us cool shirts. Even had 2 Akira shirts when they started selling anime. Anyways, when FF8 came out, I refused to wear the tshirts. FF9 was just a reminder of how sad graphics took precedent over plot.

Today I don't even care anymore. :(

Pentegarn Apr 18th, 2012 05:28 PM

God that so accurately sums up how I feel about Final Fantasy post the SNES era

Dimnos Apr 18th, 2012 09:17 PM

The worst thing about ff9 is that they didn't stop at 6.

I got as far as the part where you have to drag your annoying load of a neighbor through all the levels before I got completely bored with the whole thing. Not particularly scary, especially given that your melee charge attacks made you invincible.

Zomboid Apr 18th, 2012 10:27 PM

I took a look at Gamestop's most wanted list, and I think I'm gonna trade in Resident Evil: ORC, GTA 4, and Modern Warfare 2. I can't see myself playing any of those games again. What's reeeally dumb is that MW2 and RE are those stupid steel book editions. I need to stop getting those for games that I don't really care about--though, to be fair, RE's shittiness really took me by surprise.

darkvare Apr 19th, 2012 12:58 AM

send me your re game instead :P

Zomboid Apr 19th, 2012 01:09 AM

It even came with some stupid patches. DO I LOOK LIKE SOMEONE WHO SEWS PATCHES ONTO MY JACKETS? There was also some codes for guns and outfits, but I used those. Pretty useless, too, because there doesn't seem to be much difference between guns.

I'd maybe sent it to you in exchange for something of equal value. Say...one of your cities?

darkvare Apr 19th, 2012 01:29 AM

i would send them but they don't fit in the damn boxes also arent thosse patches suppossed to stick by ironing them the halo reach one did

Zomboid Apr 19th, 2012 02:18 AM

I don't know. I think I took them out of the bag once and they've been back in there ever since.

Esuohlim Apr 19th, 2012 02:22 AM

People just don't like GTA IV that much, do they. I can't think of another game I've been wanting to play so much for so long but don't have the means to do so, and it sucks to keep hearing how disappointing it was.

There are only so many times I can play San Andreas before wanting something new, and older GTAs really pale in comparison.

Mad Melvin Apr 19th, 2012 02:39 AM

I liked GTA4 and the two DLC's. The main game was maybe a bit too long and had a few boring missions, but it was still very enjoyable. I think the main thing people complain about is the fact that there is really not much to do in the game outside the missions, which is true, but I just played it for the story.

Esuohlim Apr 19th, 2012 03:13 AM

Outside of missions I just dick around stealing vehicles and starting fires. There's not much else to do anyway.

Zomboid Apr 19th, 2012 03:27 AM

It was really fun for a while, but I just have no desire to start playing it again--especially with GTA V on the horizon.

Really? They took a survival horror game and tried to make a squad-based shooter out of it. And anyone who played 5 can tell you the devs have trouble programing AI to do anything more than run and attack.

Zomboid Apr 19th, 2012 03:58 AM

It sounded a lot like Left 4 Dead, which I understand is pretty well-liked.

Dimnos Apr 19th, 2012 10:23 AM

I could never get into L4D. I bought both games and really tried to get into them but just couldn't for some reason. Strange as I'm the kind of guy who is into just about any game with zombies. Same story with the 2nd dead rising. :\

Still haven't fooled with that new RE as everyone here who played it said it mostly sucked.

MarioRPG Apr 19th, 2012 04:41 PM

I just finished TLoZ: Phantom Hourglass. It was ok, nothing spectacular. Made me want to play Wind Waker.

kahljorn Apr 19th, 2012 07:50 PM

Was versus a mode on the regular games? Or was it its own game? If it was just a mode on 1 or 2 then probably.

Star Wars? Like a mad man. Idk what anyone thinks. :posh

Red Dead Redemption is so awesome :D

I wish they'd given a better tutorial for the horse controls, though. I kept running people over and stuff because I didn't know how to break. I also rode my horse off a cliff, fell 60 or so feet, then got up and walked it off like a boss.

Also, are all current-gen console games just plain designed to look like shit on a normal TV? I can barely read any of the text and the stamina bar is so tiny that I didn't even realize it was there for a while and kept getting hurled off my horse like a tard.

Oh, and being drunk doesn't last long enough.

OxBlood Apr 20th, 2012 07:42 AM

Just finished Legend of Grimrock. Very very good game, even though I didn´t like the final encounter and I missed about 4 Million secrets...

I hate that crap. I have it, but I have played maybe half of it. It's just the normal game, but you shoot zombies and you have very little bullets to do so. It's really annoying trying to hit every zombie in the head with a controller.

Just use the torch to kill them. I can kill a zombear with it.

Also, coolest part is getting the horses of apocalypse, especially WAR and riding through the night setting zombies ablaze while trampling them.

Pretty much. There was a brief period after Dead Rising came out when devs cared about standard def TVs, but I think it's assumed everyone has at least one by now.

Just buy a damn HDTV. I got a modest one when I was testing crappy 2K Sports games for minimum wage, for god's sake.

The greatest thing you can do in that game is set up on a ridge with a sniper rifle and shoot peoples horses as they ride by. Its a special kind of joy you can't get anywhere else.

Guitar Woman Apr 21st, 2012 05:10 PM

I gave Super Monday Night Combat a shot.

The PC version doesn't have dedicated servers and for some reason I had to wait about 15 minutes before I even joined a match. Someone needs to tell developers that matchmaking systems are in place because consoles are limited pieces of shit, not because it's an inherently superior way to format online multiplayer. They need to be told very, very loudly. At least they had the decency to build a chatroom into the game's main menu so I could complain and swear about it at everyone else.

When I finally did start playing, I found out that they basically took the original Monday Night Combat, and ruined it. I'm not even being a "CHANGE ARE BAD" fanboy here, I hate Monday Night Combat, but it was more polished, balanced, fast-paced, fun, comprehensible, had better graphics, and the announcer was actually funny; the new guys vocalize color commentary like they're describing the drying paint on the wall in front of them. Bottom line is that the original is a shooter with DotA/LoL/Whatever elements, while the new game is a DotA/LoL/Whatever with really bad shooter elements.

I suppose I should have known something was up when they released it for free.

darkvare Apr 21st, 2012 07:31 PM

they did posted they had some issues with the match making i tried after a couple of patches it and took 15 seconds to get in a match

Mad Melvin Apr 22nd, 2012 05:53 AM

Just tried the new Sniper Elite V2 demo. Looks like SoF2 met it's match in the gore department.

Zomboid Apr 22nd, 2012 09:07 PM

Silent Hill HD. It's A-OK!

Guitar Woman Apr 23rd, 2012 02:27 PM

Finally gave Valkyria Chronicles a shot past the first mission. The story is goofy and full of terribly paced and edited JRPG dialogue, and you could take about half the lines and splice them into a porn film while remaining completely in-context. But.

The actual game? It's awesome. It's so awesome. I fucking love it and ended up playing it all night.

I don't remember the last time I had this much fun with a strategy game; probably when I played Fire Emblem 1 and had to find out what all the japanese menu commands did through trial and error, rivers running red with the blood of my senselessly sacrificed goons who walked by scooting along on one leg and dragging the other. It's a hell of a lot better than Final Fantasy Tactics, for sure.

Dimnos Apr 23rd, 2012 09:21 PM

VC was terribly addicting. Pissed me off all the sequels are on psp.

Phoenix Gamma Apr 23rd, 2012 11:25 PM

I didn't mind VC's story until the supernatural race got involved. It's like...fucking Japan, can't you do ANYTHING without some kind of magical shit? Stop that.

3 actually looked really good, but we'll never see it because we knew better than to buy that shitty second one.

OxBlood Apr 25th, 2012 04:37 AM

I should be finished with Prototype 2 soon. Rather short game but very satisfying and more polished than the first one.

I´m still in the third Tower in Pandora´s Tower but I kinda like the game, it´s a nice mix of different things we´ve seen before like Rygar, Zelda and maybe a bit of Castlevania...

I also tried out the Dragon´s Dogma Demo yesterday. About how I expected it to be, the Warrior was rather boring but the Strider was fun, shooting down a huge Griffon and stuff like that. Really looking forward to it, besides Diablo 3 my most anticipated game of the year now that Amalur is out of the way.

Pentegarn Apr 25th, 2012 11:53 AM

Been messing with Dead Island, and I like some aspects (combat and the way zombies can get the drop on you are good, plenty of side quests) while some things I am not sold on yet (repair costs rivaling buying new gear, feels too much like GTA with zombies)

kahljorn Apr 25th, 2012 12:44 PM

what system are you playing on?

Zomboid Apr 25th, 2012 06:32 PM

Just finished SH2, then did sort of a speed run on it and beat it in around 2 hours and 45 minutes. I like that it also included the sub-scenario from the Xbox version, though I can see people losing their shit if it didn't, and there's apparently been a lot of backlash anyway.

Onto SH3.

Guitar Woman Apr 26th, 2012 12:45 AM

I played Journey tonight!

I think it's pretty much the shortest game I've ever played (like an hour and a half long), but it was also really awesome.

I do have one really big main grievance about it, though, which is that it reveals your companion's gamertag at the end. I was completely ready to just go, "man, it's so depressing that I'll never know who that extremely bossy pal of mine really was, we totally went through FEELINGS together at that mountain part!" and go on imagining what kind of superstar tag-team friendship we could have had, but then it totally tells you who they are, and then comes the friend request. I have a crippling phobia of my fellow human being and don't usually friend someone after playing a game with them for an hour and a half, but how the fuck was I supposed to refuse this guy after all the FEELINGS we went through together, man?

After accepting I promptly shut my PS3 off. I'm afraid to turn it on again. Maybe I should have just declined and said "LET'S NOT RUIN THE MAGIC"

Spoilers!

Pretty much, except that you don't build anything. You just pick out your tank, then you roll onto the battlefield, start shooting your opponents, balk when your shots do no damage, then get blown up in one shot.

Oh, and if your tank tank is damaged in a fight, you have to spend the money you grinded to get on repairs.

Onto SH3.

I feel bad for people who decided to not get the HD collection, because of the bad reviews. The only really noticeable problem with SH2 was the boat part where you row towards the hotel. The water looked awful. Then there were a couple of cutscenes where the fog/fire effects were reduced compared to the original games. Looked kinda dumb. Other than that, I really had no problems with it. I keep hearing that the PS3 version has some framerate and sound issues, so maybe some of the criticism is justified, I dunno.

My point is, if you are a fan of SH and want 2 & 3 on a current generation console, this is pretty much a must have. Sure, it could've been made a little better, but it's not like there is going to be a collection like this again.

Guitar Woman Apr 27th, 2012 10:30 AM

I prefer having the PS2 versions where they actually remembered to include fog and darkness. I saw a video of 3 being played and the inside of the hospital looks like the sun's fucking lodged in the ceiling. The hell's up with that?

Also do they really not give you the option of having the original voice acting in SH3?

Mad Melvin Apr 27th, 2012 11:34 AM

Looks foggy to me.


And those videos from the inferior PS3 version, or at least I think so.

Guitar Woman Apr 27th, 2012 12:20 PM

Well, doesn't matter so much to me, since MY PS3 still has backwards compatibility :o

I don't know why the fuck Sony thought it'd be a good idea to remove that; the PS2 has one of the best game libraries of any system, up there with the SNES. The PS3 does not, and making it stand on its own like that was not very bright. I guess they did it so this HD re-release crap would be justified, but 60 GB PS3s aren't even expensive anymore so everyone should get one.

Other than that, I really had no problems with it. I keep hearing that the PS3 version has some framerate and sound issues, so maybe some of the criticism is justified, I dunno.

My point is, if you are a fan of SH and want 2 & 3 on a current generation console, this is pretty much a must have. Sure, it could've been made a little better, but it's not like there is going to be a collection like this again.

Yeah, I was amazed at how strongly people reacted to it. I had no problems whatsoever going through SH2, and from little I've played of SH3 in this so far, it's been the same thing. But then, people on the internet seem to need to bitch to survive, so whatever.

konami already promised patches but i think they will mostly fix framerate issues

I don't know why the fuck Sony thought it'd be a good idea to remove that; the PS2 has one of the best game libraries of any system, up there with the SNES. The PS3 does not, and making it stand on its own like that was not very bright. I guess they did it so this HD re-release crap would be justified, but 60 GB PS3s aren't even expensive anymore so everyone should get one.

SCEA’s director of marketing John Koller pretty much said the reason for this is becouse 80% of the people buying ps3 don't play ps2 anymore..
i think it was just to boost sell's for ps3 and to kill the ps2

i got warhammer 40k space marine on ps3 anyone wanna play with me?

Guitar Woman Apr 30th, 2012 01:36 PM

Skullgirls. It's a 2D fighting game built around combos, which is a polite way of saying "it's shit."

Also, you might think that an indie Guilty Gear ripoff would at least not have the same HDTV-or-fuck-you problem that triple-A mainstream games do, but you'd be wrong.

I usually don't even touch fighting games since the last one that wasn't shit was Bushido Blade, but it was recommended to me by a friend who never plays them either, and I'm in the market for a console-exclusive game with really good online multiplayer. So far the only one I've found is Mario Strikers Charged, a game that is nearly five years old.

I broke down and bought MGS4 for this reason, but apparently Konami's gonna shut Metal Gear Online down in June, and have already made it impossible for new players to get in. What the fucking hell? If any company pulled this with a similarly-popular PC game they'd the feet of a million angry fans shoved up their ass. Is that just how games work now? They're not allowed to be played for longer than the average lifespan of a fucking gerbil?

That Massive Action Game thing looks sort of interesting, but it's rather old and I'm afraid that as soon as I buy it they're gonna kill it too. Same with Fat Princess, although that looks a lot more appealing than some brown military shooter.

damn this space marine multiplayer is pretty awesome i was getting owned at first but after i unlocked customizer and could use my power sword i got from kill team i'm doing pretty great

Decided to try Noitu Love 2 on steam. It's the bee's knees. Very nice spritework and some pretty interesting mechanics involving combat. Not totally crazy about it, but pretty cool. Reminds me of Treasure games back when Treasure made games besides SHMUPs.

Also, part of me wants to play Pokemon Black/White. I haven't played since that time bigtimecow and I accidentally got addicted to Diamond and Pearl for 200 hours.

What I gathered from this is that you're bad at fighting games and don't play many of them, haven't played Guilty Gear more than a few times, and your TV is shit :rolleyes

Guitar Woman May 4th, 2012 10:01 AM

I am bad at fighting games because I never play them because they are bad. It is a vicious cycle, but I'm not really losing anything because as mentioned fighting games are hideously bad except for awesome samurai sword fight sims

Fuck why don't they make a new Bushido Blade? Could a game like that even exist today?

10,000 Volt Ghost May 6th, 2012 02:34 AM

I would hope something. I loved the shit out of Bushido Blade 2.

Alan Wake's American Nightmare

Pretty good so far. It's just basically more of the same, but I liked the first Alan Wake, so i'm not complaining.

kahljorn May 6th, 2012 04:34 PM

wait so you cant buy ps2 stuff on the playstation network anymore?

darkvare May 6th, 2012 06:12 PM

yes you can max payne for ps2 is the latest adition

Guitar Woman May 12th, 2012 06:09 PM

MGS4 is fucking great, yo

OxBlood May 13th, 2012 08:14 AM

Warlock - Master of the Arcane.

It's a mix between Civ and Master of Magic. Nice game if a little rough around the edges in terms of UI.

Mad Melvin May 13th, 2012 09:22 AM

Portal 2

Better than the first one and amazingly addictive. J.K. Simmons and Stephen Merchant make this even more amazing.

Phoenix Gamma May 14th, 2012 01:27 AM

I started a new game of Mother 3 for Mother's Day.

GET IT?

MOTHER'S DAY?
MOTHER 3?

IT'S OKAY TO LAUGH AT PUNS FLINT :lol2

darkvare May 14th, 2012 02:54 AM

no it's not >:

Dr. Boogie May 14th, 2012 09:14 PM

Been playing A Valley Without Wind.

I almost passed it up because I had never heard of it, and the title sounded like a turn-of-the-century romance novel. It has some interesting elements to it, but nothing to really keep you in for the longterm. Plus, the game is apparently still in the beta phase, even though they're selling it, and different aspects of the gameplay change from one day to the next. I took a break for a few days, and when I came back, they had nerfed (their words) a couple of my favorite abilities.

Maybe try it months from now when a Steam sale drops it down to like $3.

Esuohlim May 14th, 2012 11:13 PM

Mother 3 is boring goddamnit, I'm jealous of people who like it because I wanted to like it so badly :(

Phoenix Gamma May 15th, 2012 02:30 AM

I don't like Earthbound, so we're even.

Esuohlim May 15th, 2012 03:59 AM

Fair enough I guess, but we are now the greatest of enemies
