Did a short run at higher intensity: 5.2 miles in 8:40 per mile pace which is fast for me. I was sucking wind.

Looks like no negative effects yet from the week off, but again, it's probably too soon to tell.

Yeah, plugging up the borders will solve the cop-killing and child-indecencying because no legal U.S. citizens would do that.

Out of the 11-12 million illegals, even conservative estimates put the criminal element in that number at 2 million.  Thats 2 million additional criminals in this country that should NOT be here. Are you aware of the crime in Mexico?  Right now drug lords and criminal empires control a large portion of Mexico, entire cities even, and police assasinations are quite common in the news down there.  Mexicos #1 export to the US is CRIME.

They've even adopted some Islamic Terrorist methods;

Bottom line, we need to put up a fence, a mine field, and man the borders with machine gun teams.  I am sick and tired of thousands of illegals a day pouring into this country, we have to put a cork in it.

Yeah! Then we can go door to door checking for ze papers. Anyone who we don't like gets a red chili pepper sewed to their clothes and over time we can round them up into ghettos.  If we want, we can kill them on the spot!  Huzzah!

Meh.  Looks pretty but I don't see anything revolutionary about the crowd ai that she touted. The demo showed people being pushed down with no repercussions.

Also, the guy just sneaks up behind the target kills him and the guards just stand there. They would have rushed him immediately.

Then, he climbs the wall, leaps away and is 40 paces ahead of everyone else almost instantaneously. 

Meh.

More often than not, I wouldn't notice if it was missing.

Agreed. I enjoy it in games where it's implemented well, but don't know that I'll care that much if it's not in a game.

I do like the feature rather a lot, but it's quite low on the list of requirements for me in things I like in a game.

What I find interesting is that playing The Two Thrones makes me want to go back and complete Warrior Within, and I probably will, after I'm done with TTT.

I enjoyed WW. I know the radical departure in style was offputting to many, but the gameplay was great, imo.

It's also different playing the game for the first time now as opposed to in 1993(?) when it came out.  Even games that hold up really well aren't going to be as good now as when they came out, relatively speaking.

I played Chrono Trigger on the PS2 this year- my first experience with it and I didn't notice any terrible load times.

The load times are going into and out of the menu.  It usually takes several seconds. 

Ahh several...seconds.  Of course. I shall go and destroy my copy of the game now.  retard :icon_confused: icon_wink

I've basically taken the week off from running.

First, because I have no motivation at all to take off on anything longer that 5 miles so why bother.  Plan to start up again tomorrow with...a 5 miler.  disgust
Second, I've been overwhelmingly tired despite pretty solid sleep lately
Third, tangientially, but most importantly, my left leg is still bothering me. Not a good place to be just over a month from a 26.2 mile jog.

I've also really relaxed my eating standards this week, so I fully expect to feel the impacts of that on the scale next week.

We'll see though.

Game is a hoot and surprisingly deep.  I think I got to just before the final area and I shelved it meaning to get back to it.

While I was playing it it was captivating fun and a neat story.  It more than holds up. It's an example that should still be emulated.

Shrines: It says to offer something at the little shrines dotted all over the place.  How?

I have nearly 300 praise. Is it worth upgrading my astral pouch?

Digging: Are there advanced digging techniques that I'll learn later to dig through leaves/rocks etc? Or is there another trick?

13909  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Games with great Artistic Style on: September 26, 2006, 02:31:10 PM
Naturally, the topic stems from my playing the beautiful Okami.

But I've also been working through Killer 7, which is a stunningly achievement in stylized gaming.

Other great artistic games, imo:

MDK series. It was uniquely whacky and wholely underappreciated. Both games, but especially the second, were beautiful

Giants: Citizen Kabuto- Again, whacky, but a great artisitic style that has stuck with me.

Phoenix Wright: True, it's pretty much straight anime, but it works so perfectly.  I love how the characters were drawn and how their reaction animations fit their personalities perfectly.  My favorite character, Damon Gant is just something to behold.

ATB - godhood is that little wolf-icon in the bottom-left-hand corner of the screen during battles.  There are 4 different levels - green basically gives you 3 free hits until you start taking damage and the order of best-to-worst is green -> yellow -> red -> skull.  I think there are 4.  I may be adding that red...but either way, running away from battles and drowning in water decrease your godhood.  Combo's increase it.

So you should only use it in battles?  Looks like I've wasted at least 2 of em.

What about the guy asking for one?

Bravo.

I am just clearing out Sushiro fields (sp?).

Question: There's a traveler's charm that 'increases godhood by one'.  Every time I get one, I use it as the benefit sounds good, but I have no idea what it actually does.  Now I've bumped into a guy who says he wishes he had one.

What do they do and am I supposed to give this guy one or just keep talking to him until his baddies are finito?

The future line up for 360 looks very hot.  If there was no Wii I'd most likely be getting one once they square away all the failure problems. That said, a few years from now I might invest (as I did with the original X).

Hopefully this thread's just a way to get some discussion going as if you've been here any length of time, you should know the pros and cons of the system.

Quote from: Gratch on September 25, 2006, 05:00:41 PM

My gaming time is extremely limited, so wandering around for hours with only vague hints of what to do next will make me quit playing a game faster than anything else. 

Agreed 100% and this is why I quit Ocarina of Time after only a few hours: I had no idea where to go or what to do. But to Kevin's point there should be an option to turn hints on or off. Surely designers can make it so the dialogue has more help based substance when such an option on rather than when it's off. Shadow of the Colossus is another example of too much hand holding.

Anyhew, I hope to get some time in with Okami tonight, but it doesn't look good.
