Quote from: mytocles on February 17, 2009, 05:47:31 PM

I'm afraid that I must confess my one "fear" in life... spiders.  I'm not really afraid of them, per se, I just cannot bear to look at them or think about them, and the feeling is quite visceral.  Lizards, snakes, fish guts, scorpions, beetles, etc. - none of those bother me, but I can barely even say the whole name of The Eight Legged . I usually refer to one as a "Spuh" - uggh.

Maybe they will make a sequel to the game someday, but with snakes or lizards, or anything else, then I'd be IN!

I have a similar reaction on a smaller scale, but it mostly doesn't get bad until I face Giant Spiders in RPGs.  Then I have a full-on, uncontrollable willies shiver.  Something about the spiders in this game doesn't bug me.  Haha.  Bug.

I'm still loving this game, BTW, though I've had to take a break due to my child's winter vacation.

I have a question on saves.  Does TL&D create its own save files or do you have to choose from the ones already in the game?  If I have to overwrite my pre-existing saves, I'll probably be OUT until I finish the game.

You choose from the same save slots - but there's, what, 15 of them?  Are you actually using all of them?

Yes, but only in the sense that I save to a new one after each mission.  It increases the chance that I'll copy over one I'm using, though, so I'll probably wait.

Well, and I think that Nintendo is moving to quash the PSP's market share with the DSi.  I mean, what other advantage does the PSP have after that?  A bigger screen?  An analog stick?  That's hardly worth building a marketing campaign around.

"Get a PSP!  It has an analog stick!"

On the other hand, "Get a PSP2!  It has two analog sticks!" would sell one to me almost immediately.

I'd really like to play this game as I'm a huge fan of FPS games, and FEAR 2 looks pretty decent. On the other hand, I absolutely can't stand the moronic use of little girls who are supposed to be scary. From the gameplay videos I've seen, the scary stuff feels too much like Alma playing to the camera instead of actually trying to accomplish her goals (whatever they are). It annoys me so much that I don't think I could enjoy the game in the end.

Japanese influence on western entertainment is like digging through a turd to find some absolutely beautiful gems inside. The gems are great, but you still had to stick your fingers into that turd.


I'm with you on that, TiLT.  The scary girl singing a lullaby thing is very cliched.  So far, Alma doesn't feel as irritating as she did in the last game.  She's not really playing to the camera...although she does seem to be used to lead you along the correct path so far.  The demo showed that the creepy stuff is going to be used as a gameplay element, eventually (as opposed to a startle element), but I haven't seen that yet.

One thing I like better about this sequel is that I don't feel like I have to be in slo-mo to compete in firefights.  The last one had even the grunts tearing you apart with bullets if you weren't using your advantage.  This one can play like a more standard shooter with the regular guys.  At least so far.

Street Fighter IV - IN, though I still feel like I shouldn't be

Wii:
Battle Rage - Never heard of this fighting robots game...it'll probably suck, though

DS:
Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride - IN
Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon - Possibly IN, but I know I get psyched for these types of games and only play about a quarter of it

PC:
Penumbra Collection - IN

The PSP isn't a bad first effort.  However, I should point out that the Gameboy, which was mentioned above as selling something silly like 120 million units, was also a first effort.

Actually. Game & Watch was sort of their first attempt so they already had a good grasp of what people wants.

You mean a handheld that only plays games and doesn't add frou-frou stuff like watches?

Just to point out, the name of the DLC is "The Lost and Damned."

It seems everyone, myself included, wants to put that second "the" in there.  It's just a better sounding title that way.

Indeed. It's a good thing nobody here is saying that, then. We're not saying that calling someone racist is racism, but instead we are saying that treating a particular race differently from another race (in this case Ed thinks it's right for white people to be zombified, but wrong for black people), even if done under the guise of anti-racism, can be considered racist if taken too far.

I don't think the people who made the game are being racist, really, but I do think they were foolish to not see that setting their game in the middle of an area that is racially turbulent at best might raise a few eyebrows.

On an unrelated note, the "Anybody who calls somebody racist is racist and hurting anti-racism" argument is not only circular, but also ridiculous.

Does calling anything racist that features black characters in a negative light do anything productive?  Is a black man eating fried chicken inherently racist?  What if he likes fried chicken?  Intent goes a long way, and to simply claim "RACIST!" at the drop of a hat is rarely constructive.

RE5 can be viewed as racist, but is it?  I don't think so, especially when the developers are located in a region that has little first-hand history with the opression of the black community. 

I think we're into semantics here.  The designers may not be racist.  A game can't really be racist, as it's not a living being.  But that game can be racially insensitive.  Ignorance doesn't change that because you are making a game for a worldwide audience who will (or should) be aware of the problems in the setting you've chosen.  Yes, it makes sense that the infected characters would be black, because that's the location, but it also makes sense that the characters have a lot of perceived baggage going along with them, as that's also part of the location.

I think Eduardo X's Nazi analogy was a little overblown, but there is a similarity there.  Not so much if the lead character were a German, but if the infected were all the Jews in the slums or camps, sure.  It would even make sense, since the Nazis were experimenting like crazy at the time.  I'm sure Umbrella could have come out of that.  However, I wouldn't want to play a game where I had to infiltrate the slums and kill a bunch of Jewish zombies to get at the bad guys.

I just read that you get trophies for taking a break between levels.
13097  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PSN] Flower on: February 13, 2009, 03:08:50 AM
I downloaded it and played it.  There's definitely a game there.  Much more so than, say, Linger in Shadows.  There are goals and obstacles and control by the player to achieve those goals.  There are also rewards when you do the things you're meant to do.  Game.

That said, there's not much challenge, really, but I've only played one full level, so maybe it gets harder and the obstacles will actually make it difficult for you to get things done.  

I understand it may be very short, and so far there doesn't seem to be much to motivate you to go back and retry a level.  On the first level, I'm pretty sure I hit everything I was meant to.  On the next, though, there may be some hidden patches or other areas, I don't know.  

None the less, there's an experience here that's pretty special.  Maybe not for everyone, but worth it if you're a little interested.

No one else pick this up? I'm about three chapters in so far and it's been a really solid shooter. Nothing groundbreaking but I've been enjoying it.

I got it, too, and I got about the same bit in. 

It is good as far as standard shooters go, but it's feeling a lot like the last one so far.  Lots of running around office-type buildings and Alma popping up "scarily."  None of the cool and actually creepy stuff from the demo (though the opening's the same).

I also really wish they'd swap the gun-choosing button and the slow-time button.  Or at least give me the option to do so.

Not bad other than that, though.  It feels tighter than the last game.

Oh, yeah, it is very inappropriate.  They use "motherfucking" as often as "the" or in place of it, sometimes.

EDIT TO ADD: There's actually a really nice joke about the motherfucking useage at the end of the game.  I plowed through this, and it is a ton of kick-ass fun.  I've started the Director's Cut, and while the story is the same, it looks like you head into different areas, maybe (or at least get there a slightly different way).  I could just be misremembering, though.  DC is harder, too, and while I was hoping I'd be able to use the fully upped gun from my playthrough of the original game, you have to start over.

I'm still trying to convince the wife to give it a go.

Sadly its not out for a few more days here; might just make it in time for Friday the 13th.  paranoid  It's been getting very good reviews and it sounds like a must have for anyone that's enjoyed games like Umbrella Chronicles, HotD 2&3 or No More Heroes.

Gameplay-wise it fits the first two, obviously, but style-wise it's more along the lines of the latter.
13103  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Deadly Creatures [Wii] on: February 12, 2009, 04:58:57 PM
I've played the first two levels myself, and I love it.  I personally find the waggling very well done.  The moves all seem to appropriately match what's being done on screen (especially in the QTE insta-kill moments, which I normally despise).  Everyone's got their own taste, though.  I could see it working on a "normal" console, but I think it'd be missing something in the translation (though the already impressive graphics would be killer).

The game's cool in all the right ways, though.  There's an actual story-line, but that so far doesn't seem to be directly tied to the activity of the scorpion or tarantula.  More like it's happening in the background (in an effective manner).  The encounters have been pretty neat.  The bosses seem to be of the figure-out-the-trick variety, but they work.  For that second one, semi:
Spoiler for Hiden:
He got me at first, too.  The trick is to dig up all of the dirt piles around that light spot in the middle and remember to shake the nunchuck to dash away as he charges - the timing didn't always work right for me on that, which was annoying.

Deadly Creatures is just oozing originality, and so far I'm really loving it.

Yeah, it's pretty fun.  I've unlocked my second game, which is a little weird (something about opening doors to take out baddies, but you can jump on 'em, too).  I hope that more than one game unlocks at a time eventually, though.  I was ready for a new challenge before I finished the Galaga clone levels.

One thing that's kind of neat, but I'm not sure everyone will like it, is that the game encourages you to cheat.  You get new GameFan mags that have cheat codes inside (up up AABB sort of thing).  The Challenge Master tells you it's okay to use them.  For me, it was fun in the part-of-the-game sense, though I don't like using cheats normally.

So far it's pretty clever, and I found myself going back often just to try one more challenge.

I will wait for reviews, because I find that I get amped up for games like this and never finish them (AC6 was an example).

I think the difference between this and FC2 is that RE5 is a fantasy/horror scenario while FC2 is, essentially, real-world.  Further, I think FC2 deals with the political unrest directly, putting you in the middle of warring factions - you get the sense that you're not going to fix the problem, and you're just being hired to take care of some specific situations - for every side involved, I might add.  They're killing each other, you're just there.

Now I haven't played more of RE5 than the demo, so maybe all of this is addressed in the gameplay.  Given past RE games, I tend to doubt it, but who knows.  They may be growing up.   

On a personal level, I don't have a problem with someone trying something like this at all, but, yeah, if you're going to set a game in Africa, have Africans charging like they're rabid at the white protagonist and ask you to mow them down, then you should expect some complaints and contoversy.  Eye roll icons don't change that.

I'm still willing to give the benefit of the doubt, having not played the game yet.  I'm not actually condemning them.  I do think that people have a right to wonder if the game crosses a line, though.

You do realize the people you fight are possessed by a parasite that controls their thoughts and behaviors, right? They essentially become "zombies".

More or less my point. I think the protagonists actions in RE5 can be more forgiven than those in Far Cry 2. In FC2 you're fighting exterminating people who could have consciously made another choice had circumstances shifted either way. Whereas in RE5 you're taking down an enemy that has less control over their actions than a severely brainwashed Hitler youth.

I get that, but the setting is still the setting.  You can't choose it and then be surprised when people complain, is my point.

Further, the pulp genres (sci-fi, fantasy, horror) frequently are used to dramatacise or satire problems in society.  Recently, there has been a shift to using those genres purely for entertainment, with no weight added to them, but that potential is still there, kind of imbued in the genre.  If you're going to choose a hotbed location, people's minds are going to start drawing parallels.

Again, I'm just pointing out that there is no need to be dismissive of folks feeling edgy around this stuff.  Hopefully, the game will come out, and it will all be handled properly.  But you can't just say, "Look, they're zombies.  This could have happened anywhere..."  The designers chose where to set this and what the zombies would look like.

Honestly, the fact that the real humans in FC2 made a bad choice makes them fairer game, in my gaming opinion (not necessarily the same as my real-world opinion).  Zombies are a sad lot, in the sense that they had their fate thrust on them.  Don't get me wrong, I'd still slap a bullet in one's eye rather than let one eat my brain.  I'm just pointing out the landmines of the genre.

Oh no, not this argument again. How is this game racist? Just because it takes place in Africa and the bad guys are African?

I know this argument has been rumbling for a while, but I have to say they chose to set the game in a racially explosive location.  There's going to be some backlash.

Also, I was surprised to find that I felt a little uncomfortable.

They seem to be following the same approach as the first round of closings.  Games drop at a rate of 10% per drop from full MSRP, and the drops occur every few weeks, capping out at 50%-80% off right before they close up shop.  When you get to 50%, pretty much everything of note will be gone so I wouldn't wait much longer.  40% seemed to generate "the rush," as several games I was holding out were suddenly gone once it got there.  If you're holding out for a hard-to-find item, I'd get it now.  Otherwise, wait a week or two and see where they're at in the price drop cycle and if there's anything worthwhile remaining.

Was your store at 40%?  Mine has been stuck at 20%.  I was wondering about the "every few weeks" part, to see if anyone has a more specific time frame on when the drops are occurring.  Sounds like it might be different everywhere, though.

Finished off Lost Odyssey today.  Liked it quite a bit, though I inadvertently out-leveled the final area, so it was pretty easy.  That was fine with me though, as I've always been of the mindset that if you spend the time to grind your levels up, you should be fairly godlike by the end (plus, we're talking about a bunch of people who've been around for 1000 years, they should be pretty damn good at fighting by now).

Now I just need to figure out what I want to play next.  I'm torn between Persona 3, Last Remnant, and Infinite Undiscovery.  I've been playing so much LO this month that I'm nervous that I'll start Persona and get burned out because of too much turn-based.  Of course, I've been really liking the turn-based stuff, so who the hell knows?  I'll probably pull a name out of a hat.

I thought their leveling system made it nearly impossible to get too far beyond the requirement for an area.

If they remove the time limits and craptarded save system I would like to check this out.

Yep.  Me too.

Agreed.  I have yet to get through a full game.  Also, I'd like to be able to finish all available missions, though that ties in with the timer.
