"Those who explore everything by tapping the A Button are rewarded constantly in Blue Dragon."

Yuck.

So, you want less interactivity?

I wouldn't say that myself, but I don't want to feel like have to click on ever object/wall in the game looking for hidden crap. There should be some logic/visual clue to it.

It is somehow hilarious to me that someone tagged "Gwar" posted 'Ew" in response to a video with a one second flash scene of some spooge.

+1, I don't think Gwar took his name after the band. They don't seem to be a very Christian band.

The actress added that her sexuality is nobody's business, and that if she had to prove anything to people, she would have released a sex video long ago.

"If I wanted people to know what I do with my vagina I would have released a sex video a long time ago. Yet I haven't done that," she said.

For the life of my I can't figure out what she's trying to say.

That if she wanted you to know about her sex life, she would have showed you.

Oh, and PAX is not about games, it's about gamers. Card, Dice, video, miniature, etc... It's like saying the Circus is trying to replace the Zoo. Sure, they both have animals.

True, but a lot of gamers have dubbed it the new E3 (in E3's past form), that's why I cried.

They can have it.  E3 was not about gamers, it was about games. 

I thought E3 was about hype and marketing myself.

Yes the text is small for the intro. Once you are done with the intro, no big deal.

Very fun so far. Basic game play, but one of those games that looks like it could take a lot of time to master. A majority of the game is spent trading, so it looks like it will be fun multiplayer.

Basic game play:

Each map tile has a number assigned to it, when that number is rolled everyone who has a settlement/city bordering it gets that tile's resource. The beginning of each players turn the dice are rolled. Resources are used to build new settlements/cities, roads, and buy cards.

Roads extend where you can build settlements. Settlements/cities allow you to get resources. Cards give little bonuses. Like an Army card lets you move the robber which makes any tile fertile (when that number is rolled, no one gets any resources from the tile the robber is on).

Get 10 victory points to win. Settlements= 1 point, City=2 points. Longest road=2 points IIRC. Person who uses the army card most=2 points.

So a typical turn seems to be, rolling the dice, collecting any resources for it. Decide what you want to build and then try to trade resources to get what resources you need to build what you want. Trading is a huge part of the game, in fact you spend most of your time trading.

For instances if I want to build a city (2 wheat, 3 granites) but I only have wood and sheep, I spend most of my turn trying to get players to trade me what I want.

Seems like it will be a blast multi-player.

I didn't see a demo option. Maybe I overlooked it?

Anyway, looks good, BUT, the game locked up on me. Not that lock up is the right term, I could still move the map, check the info screens, etc, but 2 computer players traded, I got a message saying they were doing so and it just sat there for 10 minutes. Couldn't skip to my turn or anything else, finally had to turn the game off.
2659  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: XBLA Triple Shot this week - Catan, Millipede, and Centipede [56k] on: May 02, 2007, 03:48:31 PM

The Wii is like a fun-loving aunt.  The PS3 is like an uncle that lets his nephew fire his shotgun.  And the Xbox 360 is like a slightly-retarded cousin - they're late, totally unreliable and constantly rips you off by asking you for money and not paying you back, but we still love him.

Just an animal folks.  You were going to eat it anyway.  And you're playing a game that has worse violence.

Except I am guessing no one ate it, which meant it died to promote a video game. Slaughtering animals, no matter what the game, does not entice me to buy it. I find it a bit sick.

And what does playing a video game with simulated violence have to do with anything?

Um... odd.  So after Brendan PMed me a link today on xbox.com to see if my console was under warranty (it wasn't), I called the Xbox folks today to see how much it would cost to repair it and... it's back under warranty.  Something happened in the span of about 8 hours, but a coffin is on it's way to me and I should get a repaired or refurbed one back free of charge.  They're also extending my XBL subscription by a month, lol.

Odd, but I'll take it.

I forgot to post again, but after looking into it a bit, it looked like the funds from Money Orders are secured by the US Postal Service.

I would contact the postal inspection service and see what they can do.  Because first of all, this is mail fraud, which is nothing to sneeze at.  Then, if he committed any kind of fraud with the money order, there is that.

That's only if you bought a USPS money order.

While I normally wouldn't trust Gellar at all with RPG advice, I think he is right on here. SOA might be exactly what you are looking for.

Just be warned, it's a combat every 5' game. I really liked it, but got burnt out on the constant fighting.

I really liked Enchanted Arms on the 360. Sure it's corny, but the combat is different/neat and I enjoyed the storyline.
