The gameplay and graphics in the trailer look fine but that was possibly the worst voice over I’ve ever heard from a game.  Apparently bad enough that the head writer stepped in and disowned it, saying that it’s not from the game itself.

I picked up the Unfinished Swan and finished it tonight.  I feel like it falls just short of its true potential but would still recommend it without question at this price.

I actually don't know the answer to your questions but I do know you can get Deponia plus a bunch of other games for cheap on http://www.indiegala.com/ right now.  All except one of them activates on Steam.
804  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Sly 4 teaser video! on: January 23, 2013, 04:24:20 PM
I loved the first Sly Cooper but every subsequent game slightly less.  The problem was I enjoyed playing as Sly but didn’t care for the other gameplay modes.  I hope this one moves back towards the original and limits playing as the side characters.

I got the PC version from Greenman Gaming for $11.25, and now I'm just waiting for Steam to unlock it tomorrow afternoon.  Reviews are in the 7-8 range, with a 7 from Gamespot and 7.9 from IGN.
Picked it up on Greenman as well.  I had a $10 credit on there from something so I ended up getting it for $1.25!

The Brutal Ballad of Fangus Klot - Fangus Klot was mentioned in Strangers Wrath.  He was a gunslinger, so this would probably be a FPS similar to Strangers Wrath.

Oddworld: Squeek's Oddysee – A character from Munch’s Oddysee.  From the odworld wiki it sounds like Squeek’s race can take control of people.  Maybe a 3rd person stealthy type of game?

Oddworld: The Hand of Odd – I remember they were throwing around ideas for a squad based strategy type game with this name over 10 years ago.

SligStorm – No idea.

I recently played thought Strangers Wrath HD and was surprised just how well it held up.  Would love to see something similar.
809  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PC/PS3/WiiU]Aliens Colonial Marines on: January 17, 2013, 05:56:14 PM
The WiiU version has been pushed back if anyone cares.  I was interested because I like the way the motion tracker was integrated in ZombiU but it’s still far more likely that I would pick it up on PC for the co-op experience.
810  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dead Island Riptide on: January 15, 2013, 04:59:30 PM
Pretty sure there are only three types of people who would want that.  Perverts, serial killers and perverted serial killers.

I can just see the conversations now…
“Honey, look what came with my new game!”
*blank stare*
“I’m going to go stay with my mother…we’ll talk later.”
811  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Kickstarter] Wildman from Gas Powered Games on: January 14, 2013, 09:04:02 PM
Mildly interested but I think I will hold off for a while.  The last game from Chris Taylor I enjoyed was Total Annihilation.
812  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Kentucky Route Zero [PC / Mac] on: January 14, 2013, 12:43:51 AM
Seems interesting.  After your impressions I watched the Giant Bomb preview video and think I would enjoy  it.  I see that if you buy it directly from them you get a Steam key when it’s released there so I might pick up sometime this week.

I wonder if the side quest in Fallout 3 'Trouble on the Homefront' is a  slywink and a nod to that Spoiler you just posted,as the side quests ends similar
Spoiler for Hiden:
after helping vault 101 and restoring peace,you are asked to leave and not come back as there were still people who thought you were a dick and it would upset some of them if you stayed(or visited whenever you wanted)


and that second paragraph is what 'The President' asks you to do in FO3,release the crap into the water supply

Spoiler for Hiden:
I actually liked the “president” nod in Fallout 3.  Fallout 2 was a bit more poignant, however, since the president was a real person who had been democratically elected.  Fallout2 basically gave you the choice of dooming a bunch of people whose only fault was being born in isolation and electing an ass as president, or choosing to kill off all the people of mainland America.

I don’t remember Vault 101 kicking me out.  Maybe I was just too loveable.  icon_smile

The big patch from a couple weeks ago fixed the terrible menu loading times for me.  It cut my general loading times about in half.  Maybe I just got lucky?

Quote from: metallicorphan on January 11, 2013, 05:29:08 AM

it was just a theory,i have never played the first Fallouts

but the fact is,if in Fallout 3 the Brotherhood of Steel were assholes and only looking out for themselves that would make them exactly the same as The Talon Company,The Outcasts AND The Enclave in the game....it'd be a bit shit,No?
The Fallouts were always very grey on morality and happy endings were relative.  In the original Fallout after you save your vault and the world…

Spoiler for Hiden:
You return home to Vault 13 only to have the door slammed shut in your face.  By becoming strong enough to save your people you had become something terrible and foreign in their eyes, and so were left to wander the wasteland on your own.

The Enclave was also a bit different in Fallout 2.  They were direct descendants of the US government and military after the war.  The Presidents Science Council had decreed that all humans who had survived the apocalypse were mutants regardless of whether or not they showed physical signs.  Their plan was to release a pathogen into the Jetstream to wipe out humanity and then once the world had been cleaned they would start the repopulation program.

So here's a question for you, Lordnine, and think about it first : courtesy to what, exactly? What are you doing wrong in someone else's eyes by being naked in the shower or a change room? What form of courtesy is it, where another persons opinion of you overrules your own "sensibilities" in being naked in a place thusly designed for said state and with clear functional intent? Courtesy to children who have no interest in you more than they do an interesting tree, or bug, or rock they've seen? Courtesy to people who feel the need to cover themselves up, and expect others around them to do the same? Why is your disinterest in seeing naked people, while in a place expressly designed for people to be naked, more important than my need to get clean? You chose where you look. I've seen dozens of men in a day, and no penises, though they were all naked. I don't have any interest in it, so if you just relax about it, it becomes moot.
Well, to be completely blunt; if I don’t know you on some personal level then you’re basically decoration, and I don’t hang unpleasant art in my house.  You’re not damaging my sensibilities or making my uncomfortable (Well, unless you’re doing something REALLY bizarre), I just don’t want to see it in the same way I don’t want to see a display of modern art constructed out of random animal corpses. 

If you’re in the shower, fine, if not then put a damn towel on.   Tongue

Quote from: Purge on January 10, 2013, 04:35:00 AM

I watch people who wear their underwear into the shower, or shorts, or hide behind towels, and I wonder what it's like to not be comfortable with yourself. I'm a big guy, BTW - not my prior 365, but down to about 235 (with a significant amount of muscle tissue mind you). I've worked at it, and I have no reason to be embarrassed.
It’s not about shame, it’s about courtesy.  You have no reason to be embarrassed but I still don’t want to see your naked body. 
I actually don’t have a problem with nudity in media but it should be people’s choice to NOT have to see it in the same way that you can choose not to see violent media.  That doesn’t mean it shouldn’t exist at all.

Quote from: Lordnine on January 09, 2013, 11:12:10 PM


Fallout 3 also really bugged me in that it portrayed the Brotherhood of Steel as virtuous heroes.  In the original cannon the Brotherhood were kind of assholes, they really only cared about the rest of humanity if it was in their best interest to do so at the present moment.

You have just described the Brotherhood Outcasts to a tee(the assholes part anyway),they broke off from the Brotherhood of Steel,so perhaps they were the assholes you met back in Fallout 1
Eh?  The east coast Brotherhood are a splinter group.  The brotherhood originated in California.  From the wiki:
Quote
The Brotherhood of Steel is a neo-knightly order that rose from the ashes of the American military of the West Coast in the years following the devastation of 2077. The organization's tenets include the eradication of mutants and worship of technology. The Brotherhood has never been very keen on sharing their resources with their fellow wastelanders (who they generally consider too ignorant and irresponsible to deserve such advanced technology).
Also, the Outcasts are trying to return the brotherhood to what they used to be.
Quote
There are members of Lyons' expeditionary force to the East Coast who preferred to stay faithful to the Brotherhood's original goals of locating and preserving technology and knowledge. These members of the Brotherhood left the Citadel to take up residence in Fort Independence, and stylized themselves as the Brotherhood Outcasts.[3] In addition to carrying out Lyon's original orders, the Outcasts are also trying to re-establish contact with the western Elders, and have Lyons placed in front of a firing squad.
820  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fallout 4? on: January 09, 2013, 11:12:10 PM
I would argue that’s part of what makes Fallout…Fallout.  Thinking back on the original, Fallout 1 let you submit to the villains will and become his servant if you really wanted to.

Fallout 3 also really bugged me in that it portrayed the Brotherhood of Steel as virtuous heroes.  In the original cannon the Brotherhood were kind of assholes, they really only cared about the rest of humanity if it was in their best interest to do so at the present moment.

Either way, I will be interested to see what they do with a Fallout 4 if that really is the announcement.

Hm... I strongly preferred Fallout 3 to New Vegas.  But I played the GOTY edition of FO3 with all the DLC - not sure if that made a difference.

Regardless, MOAR PLEAZ!
The consensus is generally that people who care a lot about story and or loved the original Fallouts, prefer New Vegas.  People that want a sandbox or really enjoy the Elderscrolls games prefer Fallout3.
822  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PC/Wii U/3DS/DS/Ps3/Vita] LEGO Marvel Super Heroes on: January 09, 2013, 07:02:02 PM
Interesting.  I tried the demos for first Indiana Jones and the Batman’s.  They seemed amusing but weren’t something I could see playing on my own and getting people to play local is very difficult.  With online co-op I would be much more likely to play them.
823  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fallout 4? on: January 09, 2013, 06:55:57 PM
My excitement is stifled somewhat by how much more I enjoyed New Vegas than Fallout 3.  Maybe they could share the work this time around and let Obsidian do all the writing and quest building and have Bethesda make the over world and handle Q&A.  I can dream, right?
824  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: I need your opinion on whether or not to run a review on: January 09, 2013, 04:45:06 PM
Rather amusing, I saw that Destructoid reviewed the game.  At least I think it's the same, I honestly didn't read the review.

826  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Little Inferno on: January 04, 2013, 02:23:18 PM
I think I posted impressions here when it first came out but no one seemed interested.

Overall I liked it but it's no World of Goo.  I will also say the ending is awesome.

It's also on sale on Steam for $7 for the next hour if anyone is interested.
827  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PC Games of 2013 on: January 04, 2013, 05:04:19 AM
That's a lot of games.  I started making a list of my most anticipated but gave up around page 5.   icon_eek
828  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Spec Ops returns in Spec Ops: The Line on: January 03, 2013, 05:36:44 AM
I played on easy because I found the combat annoying (I don’t like modern warfare games and I hate cover based shooting).  Be aware that on easy you can finish the game in about 5 hours.
829  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wii U on: December 31, 2012, 05:31:54 AM
I picked up Trine 2 because it was on sale tonight and am really impressed with how good it is on the WiiU.  I also made a potentially surprising discovery, since the game was downloaded it was running off the hard drive and the load times were almost instant, quite a bit faster even then running the game on my PC. 

Compared to the long load times to start other games on the WiiU I have to think it’s the DVD drive that is holding the system back and not the other components.   I would be really interested to hear about loading times for anyone who has purchased the downloadable version of ZombiU to see if my theory holds up.

As for Trine 2; if you don’t already own it on PC and have a WiiU this seems like the definitive version to get.  Really fun puzzle platformer for co-op or by yourself.

Other games on sale are Little Inferno and Arora but act fast if you want them as I think the sales end on the 1st.
830  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Hobbit finds a director on: December 27, 2012, 09:30:53 PM
Watched this on Christmas.  While I don’t think the movie deserves the 65% it has on Rotten Tomatoes it is without a doubt the weakest of the movies.  I felt the movie had some serious pacing and tone issues that could have been solved with some fairly minor scene reworking and if they had cut about 30 minutes out of the movie.

The worst part of the movie in my opinion was the Troll scene towards the beginning, which although quite faithful to the source material, was completely out of place with the tone of the movie.  Maybe it’s because I enjoyed the rest of the movie quite a bit but this one scene annoyed me more than Jar Jar Binks.
831  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Far Cry 3 or Dishonored? on: December 27, 2012, 01:57:54 AM
I loved Dishonored (my GOTY) but as people have pointed out above it’s a stealth/exploration game not a shooter.  If you play it like a shooter you are going to be disappointed because you will miss most of the game and finish very quickly.

Which sort of experience are you looking for?

Also, with all the sales that have hit for these games in the last two weeks why are you paying full price for either one of them?

So my nephew got a Wii U and I noticed on the main screen there's people posting pictures and comments.  What prevents people from posting "penis penis penis"?

That part is easy, it would seem, as they do all kids of evil word detection right now. Penis drawings on the other hand, that was the tricky part.  icon_wink

That article is awesome.  I wonder how many times Toad gets censored in Mario drawings.

I would avoid Start of Darkness as far as getting new people interested.  I actually found it a little TOO dark and made it so I will be disappointed if Redcloak isn't the one who kills the lich in the end.

Is there any real fear in Fear 3 or is it just gory?
Maybe one or two segments.  I enjoyed the game for it's co-op, I don't think I would recommend it for single-player.  Co-op is excellent though, the two characters play almost completely different.
835  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Prometheus (previously Alien the Prequel) on: December 21, 2012, 02:57:56 AM
I watched the film recently.  As it was I thought it was OK but after it finished I watched the deleted scenes and was surprised just how much better many of them would have made the movie.  Most of them were fairly minor but added a lot more depth to many of the characters actions.

The biggest scene omission in my opinion happens pretty close to the end.
Spoiler for Hiden:
In the theatrical cut the Space Jockey/ Engineer wakes up and for no reason starts killing people.

In the deleted scene he actually has a brief conversation with the people in the room.  The Engineer is actually fairly calm until the Old Dude starts yelling that humans are their equals and that they are both like gods; at which point the engineer becomes offended and then attacks the people in the room.

For me this makes it perfectly clear as to why the Engineers would choose to exterminate the human race after their creation and added extra meaning to the movie.
836  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wii U on: December 21, 2012, 01:04:46 AM
Ah, you clearly have a more sophisticated setup than I do.  I have no external sound system so switching input is enough for me.  That does make me wonder if that will be coming down the road since they do plan to support DVR which also doesn't work currently.
837  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wii U on: December 21, 2012, 12:48:39 AM
The remote works with my cable box just fine.  Under TV controller setup there is now an option to do TV + Cable Box.  You get an extra power button when you hit the main TV button on the remote.
838  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wii U on: December 20, 2012, 09:06:06 PM
TVii is neat but the interface is definitely made for someone with smaller hands than I have.  I dislike the fact that you HAVE TO use the touch interface for it to work.   The remote has joysticks, let me use them if I want to!  Still I do like how easy it is to setup, makes keeping track of my channels easier and means one less controller on my coffee table.

Quote from: Soulchilde on December 19, 2012, 02:33:06 PM

My sister kept asking me to read the Hunger Games, but told me to avoid the third novel cause it would piss me off.   First novel was good, but the story started going downhill in book 2 and I had to force myself to finish it.  I have no desire to read the third novel


How or why this was green lighted for a movie series is baffling
I actually enjoyed the second book almost as much as the first.  The problem is that the 2nd ends on a cliffhanger which basically forces you to read the third.  The third book *could* actually work better as a movie but I really hope whoever produces it is allowed to take some liberties with the script.  The way it plays out basically ruins the memory of characters from the first two books as well as making the point of the first book all for nothing.
