Played the demo.  It's fun. Not sure about long term enjoy ability but if you like this type of game I doubt you will be disappointed.  My one complaint is that it appears to be single player only.  After having fun with Sanctum in multiplayer it seems like it should have been a nobrainer here.

High heels on superheroes/villains is awful. I hope there is a scene where she tries to…do anything…falls and promptly disposes of the shoes.

I Signed up for basic cable when I switched to Comcast last year but I only turn it on maybe once a week and usually turn it off within the hour.  I find I don't have the patience to hunt for shows I want to watch or to deal with  commercials so everything I watch is on DVD or Netflix.
1365  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mass Effect Vs Mass Effect 2 on: July 31, 2011, 02:20:36 AM
I had to grind my way through Mass Effect 1.  Hated the Citadel and once I was able to leave I think I only came back once.  The characters were dull; the only two I liked were Tali and Wrex.  If it wasn't for the knowledge that Mass Effect 2 was coming out I never would have finished it.  And since someone will ask why I bothered with the sequel if I didn't enjoy the first; I played Dragon Age BEFORE playing Mass Effect and held it as one of the best RPG's I had played in many years.  My assumption was that ME2 would build on what I loved from DA.

While it was nothing like DA I loved Mass Effect 2 for the very first minutes.  The Citadel was finally fun and interesting, characters were unique and almost universally excellent and the world felt much more unique and alive.
1366  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nintendo 3DS price cut to $169.99 on: July 28, 2011, 02:54:08 PM
Actually, these games probably will be in 3D if excite-bike was any indication.  The fewer games that use touch or motion controls the happier I will be.  Overall I think this is the first great thing Nintendo has done in a long time and I expect 3DS will fly off the shelves this Christmas.
1367  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Collectors Editions? on: July 21, 2011, 10:44:25 PM
I have between 5-10.  I don't really care about in-game DLC because you usually forget about it 10 minutes into the game but I do like hardcover art-books and well made collectibles.  I had stopped buying them for a while because I've switched over to only buying games on Steam but I was happy to see that the Fallout: New Vegas CE used Steam works so I'll probably get suckered into buying them again as more games pickup the trend.
1368  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Netflix Instant Watch recommendation thread on: July 11, 2011, 04:32:53 PM
Grave of the Fireflies is extremely well made and effective storytelling yet I still can't recommend it.  When I finished watching it I felt like I was in a stupor for quite a while afterwards.
1369  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Internet has ruined movies on: July 09, 2011, 01:54:39 AM
Am I the only one who likes spoilers?  While I don't look for specifics I generally try to find out the overall arc of something, especially for TV shows.  If something sounds like it was handled badly or that I would enjoy the ending I don't waste my time by watching it.

Well, right now that's 7.99 for the 3 versions of Elven Legacy, multiple Majesty 2 expansions, and a random game thrown in. About 3.39 each.

But yeah, I see games drop down to $1.79 by later in the sale. I've already got hydrophobia prophecy to try.

Majesty 2 was a huge disappointment for me and I loved the original.

1373  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Cars 2: It stinks! on: June 24, 2011, 07:05:35 PM
I had no interest in the original Cars and only ended up seeing it because Amazon had the Bluray on sale for about $10 last Christmas.  That said, having actually watched it I don't think it deserves the hate it receives.  It IS my least favorite Pixar film but I still found it quite enjoyable.  Cars 2 on the other hand looks downright embarrassing.
1374  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: How do you feel when playing the "evil" path in games? on: June 19, 2011, 03:20:28 AM
I dislike games that define it as Good and Evil.  Just because you want to have absolute power and rule the world doesn't necessarily make you evil.  Maybe you're just good at it! Maybe power is a means to an end; a way to stop social injustice and remove the true corruption. 

Sadly, most games don't share this view point.  The only game in recent memory to allow this was Fallout: New Vegas where I was able to achieve absolute power for myself and still bring peace and prosperity to the wasteland.
1375  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dawn of War 3 on: June 17, 2011, 03:30:06 AM
The Ork campaign in Retribution is actually almost as good as the other two campaigns and a whole lot funnier so you may not want to write it off entirely.   Tongue

 Find a friend to play through them in co-op and your enjoyment of all of them will increase tenfold.

Holy hell...first you have to figure out if you have an amazon account, then you have to download their proprietary music player, then you have to install it, then you have to download the file, then you have to register the player. All for a 6-minute sound clip.  finger

It was worth it, though.   thumbsup

Yeah, I "bought" it but I'm not installing their crapware just to listen to it.

At least, not on my home PC.    ninja

I've downloaded lots of files from Amazon and never had to do all that.  Let the file down loader run and then open the folder on your computer where it downloaded it.  C:\Users\NAME\Music\Amazon MP3 by default on Windows 7.
1377  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: American Gods Coming to HBO on: June 15, 2011, 10:15:23 PM
I imagine each episode could focus on a particular god with lots of flashbacks to when they were in power. That would allow for the series to occupy a much longer time period and deliver more background on each character without a lot of wordy exposition.

There is very little Gaiman has done that I haven't enjoyed.  Loved Stardust and Mirrormask and thought Coraline was very good as well.  Little known fact, Gaiman also helped with the script/translation for the English version of Princess Mononoke.
1378  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Sidescrollers on: June 08, 2011, 08:52:15 PM
Trine is my favorite sidescroller of the last few years but its more platformer than combat oriented.  It's also on sale on Steam right now for $4.50.

Edit: After clicking your links Trine isn't what you're looking for at all.
1379  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dungeon Siege 3 on: June 08, 2011, 03:00:05 AM
Played the demo.  Felt like it might be fun on consoles if you were playing with a group of friends but as a PC game it's pretty lackluster.  Controls felt awkward with mouse and keyboard, voice acting was awful and the story was uninteresting enough that I just skipped it.  The one thing I really liked is that when I finally leveled up there were about 3-4 different screens worth of customization for my character.

Any chance this can also be activated on Steam like the PC versions?  Would be a fairly brilliant move if it could to get people to try out the system. 
1382  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fallout:New Vegas and Steam........WTF on: May 23, 2011, 05:07:51 PM
I love games that use Steamworks.  I refuse to buy a retail game that I can't activate over Steam because it's just so convenient if I ever want to reinstall a game or switch computers.

That said technically you only need to be online once to activate the game, after that you can run in offline mode if you really want.

I'm not sure if it's still up but they also had another Discworld two part series: The Colour of Magic.

It is still up.
Still worth a look but I thought Color of Magic was far inferior of the two.  Color of Magic being a lot more fanciful showed the limits of their budget a lot more and I didn't care for the direction they took with many of the characters.
1393  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Netflix Instant Watch recommendation thread on: April 01, 2011, 10:01:42 PM
A couple I would recommend.

The Secret of Kells (Unique animation and well made)
Monsters  (Cloverfield except character driven and without the shakycam)
Hogfather (Terry Pratchett movie, great for fans OK for everyone else)
The Pillars of the Earth (Miniseries political epic focused on the church in 12th century England)
1394  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo's 3D House of DS on: March 31, 2011, 07:21:45 PM
My preorder bonuses came today.  $15 game and creepy bear carrying case.  Yay!

1395  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo's 3D House of DS on: March 29, 2011, 09:09:23 PM
My first impressions are a bit mixed.  It's probably just me but the 3D doesn't work as well as I expected.  On the one hand I can clearly see a lot of depth looking into the 3DS but nothing has really appeared to POP out for me yet.  That aside I'm not disappointed. 

Setup was a breeze.  Unlike my PSP where I had to fight with it for almost an hour to get it to connect to my network the 3DS was logged in within seconds.  The system is a lot smaller in my hands than my old DS but it still feels sturdy and I like that it has some real weight to it. 

Graphics are good (but not great). I would say they look better than my Wii does but as expected are far removed from the likes of my PS3.   Still, for a handheld this is the perfectly fine for me. Sound is good and the controls feel a lot smoother than they do on my old DS.

The AR cards are probably the real highlight so far and I had fun turning my coffee table into an archery range, although my cat got curious what I was doing and kept getting in the way of the arrows.  If they had opted for higher resolution cameras this mode alone could have been a system seller for a lot of casual gamers.

1396  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo's 3D House of DS on: March 28, 2011, 06:31:47 PM
Just got the notice that my 3DS has shipped from Amazon.  Looks like they upgraded me to free one-day shipping and its supposed to be here tomorrow. 
1397  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Why did the Bigfoot cross the road? on: March 24, 2011, 05:06:07 PM
We have Champ here in Burlington Vermont.  He's a lovely sea/lake monster that gets spotted every few years.  He is so popular that he is the mascot for the local sports team.

What's more likely is that we have been known to get ridiculously large leach/eel type things in the lake here which could probably be taken as a monster if not viewed too clearly.  I think I would rather have the lake monster. paranoid
