Rogue Legacy looks fun and might pick it up.

I was thinking about that, but $14.99 is more than I want to pay for it, so I'll wait for a Steam sale on it.
I just picked it up.  It has a real addictive quality.  Just one more runÖ and then you look down your family tree and realize you have killed off over 20 generations of your familyÖ

Word of warning though, a game pad is a must for this one.

Bought it for my son earlier and watched him play some. I love the roguelike elements and the way you gradually increase the ability and power of your descendants, but the game is way too twitchy for me to get anywhere.

Iíve actually been enjoying it quite a lot. The key is not to worry about dying until youíre about level 10. You are supposed to die! Thatís the only way you level up. Your first few generations just run into the castle and try to get about 100 gold, die and spend it.

Once you have unlocked the blacksmith, the mystic and the architect the game becomes a lot more interesting because you get better equipment, new special abilities and the option to lock the castle so that it doesnít randomize.

If youíre having real trouble, try to unlock a paladin; they have the shield ability which lets them block all damage.

I loathe fighting the AI.  In a team game against real opponents we can be winning heavily but if we break one of their spirits enough that they quit and the AI takes over it becomes almost impossible to win.  The AI is just too efficient once it gets enough units in play.  Itís able to win by attrition by just capping the map and throwing units at you.

More end of game spoilers:

Spoiler for Hiden:
I've read some articles that you had a choice of what to do in the operating room.  I only shot the first surgeon, but not the other two.  I guess you can kill all or none or whatever.  What did you guys do?

Also, how much time did you spend just looking out at the giraffe vista?  I watched long after they had gone and just panned around.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I assumed they would move aside when I held a gun to them, but when I got close to the table, Joel took the scalpel from the guy in the middle and stabbed him in the neck. The other two guys just stood there as I picked Ellie up and took her out of the room.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I didn't even know that was an option!  I wonder if you shoot him in the leg or something if he drops the scalpel?

Spoiler for Hiden:
I threw a brick at his head.  It shattered and he didn't seem to mind.  Realizing I was dealing with Superman I took my chances with my gun.  ninja

I have some impressions of the campaign now if anyone is interested.

While I still think itís pretty good itís not quite up to the standards of the campaign from Dawn of War II.  At times they get carried away with trying to portray the negative aspects of soviet command to the point that it leaves reality and becomes a parody of itself.  I get what they are trying to do but itís a bit heavy handed for my taste.

I also tried some co-op theater of war missions.  It can be fun but not quite what I was expecting.  It makes me think of the RTS equivalent of a horde mode. We only tried the first so the others might be different.

Doesn't seem that way... what am I missing?
The coupon of course!  GMG puts out a new coupon code almost every month.  Works on almost everything.  This month it's GMG20-6WUSQ-LBC4U.

Oh, if youíve never placed an order there before, I recommend paypal.  The site is completely legitimate but it is based outside of the US and some credit card companies freak out about foreign orders.

We made an interesting observation last night.  Against higher level players you can generally get a good idea of their army composition before the game even starts by looking at the bulletins that they chose.  I wonder if that is intentional or an oversight?
810  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: [3DS] Animal Crossing New Leaf on: June 25, 2013, 02:55:39 PM
When I first setup my game I just chose to set the in game time to be 3 hours behind the real time.  I think you can tell your assistant she has the time wrong anytime you start the game as well.

Let me save you the trouble.  You won't like it Tongue  
Gratch is the one who hates everything, right?  icon_razz

Seriously though, playing on normal I think I only died maybe 10-15 times in the whole game, most of which were at the end of the game and the rest were during the early Clicker sections before I figured out how to easily bypass them. If you drop it all the way down to easy you get Shiv defense by default, which means you canít be one shot by zombies unless you donít have a Shiv.

For what itís worth, Iím not a 3rd person action fan either and I loved the game.


816  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3] The Last Of Us on: June 22, 2013, 12:35:26 AM
Just finished the game.  Generally speaking, Iím not much of a console gamer.  Iím also not a fan of most third person games.  All that said, this is by far my favorite game of the year and probably my favorite game of this console generation.

My total play time was 12 hour 49 minutes on normal.  I also had a whopping 177 melee kills.

After you save, choose the load game option.  Your percentage should be shown when you select a file.  You don't need to actually load the file.

Quote from: McNutt on June 19, 2013, 09:34:45 PM

That extra scene does make more sense as to why the engineer gets angry.  I don't think it justifies getting angry enough to kill everybody.  That still makes him seem like a psychopath.  Plus I still have issues with their decision to wipe out Earth.  Why?  How do they know what the people of Earth have become?  Wasn't that engineer in suspended animation for a really long time?  For some reason I was thinking that those ships had been like that for hundreds or thousands of years. 

Still, nothing about that script made sense.  The engineers created life on our planet and possibly other planets.  They leave clues for us to go to this planet and find them and when we do it's actually just their biohazard stockpile planet where they were planning our doom.  Huh?
I looked at it like this; humanity was little more than a curiosity.  Letís say you had an ant farm then, and one day the ants became advanced enough to talk face to face with you.  Instead of revering you the ants said that they were your equal in every way.  Would you welcome the ants with welcome arms or would you be insulted?  And to that end, how guilty would you feel for killing a few ants?

Or you can look at it this way.  You created life.   Knowing that it would evolve you wanted to create a failsafe in case it evolved too much.  If the life stayed on its planet then fine, you could study it from afar as a science experiment.  However, if the life became advanced enough to seek you out then that meant that one day it might pose a threat to you.  In that case, isnít it better to setup a trap to wipe them out before they became powerful enough to put you in danger?

For anyone who found Prometheus lacking, track down the cut scenes on Youtube.  In my opinion they vastly improved the movie and I have no idea why they were cut. 

Does she not run in a straight line?  Does the scientist not try to get all cuddly with the hideous monster?  Do the connections to Alien suddenly exist?
No, characters still do dumb things but in a couple places you learn WHY they do dumb things.  There is generally more character development and a better understanding of peopleís motivations. 

I mentioned this is the old Prometheus thread but this is one example that would have been MUCH better with the cut content.
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.

I've never played an Animal Crossing game before, at any point do we get a backpack or any-form or extended carry space?  I find it a bit tedious to have return and sell things as often as I do, especially now that my equipment takes up a fair amount of my inventory space.

Now that Iím a bit further in the game some of the sheen has worn off for me.  I loved the first hour of the game but once it threw me into a Clicker heavy area I became very annoyed.  In a game like this I want to explore and collect everything but I feel that the game punishes you for that with the fact that you can be killed instantly, thus making you have to re-collect everything since it saves only at the start of an area.  Combine this with a stealth focus and itís just too tedious for me to play like that.

My enjoyment went back up though once I discovered that you really donít have to be that careful.  Now I save all my equipment for Molotovs, nail bombs, carry a good melee weapon and take Clickers head on.  It helps that my game apparently bugged out in my favor and I got the shiv self defense upgrade for free.  I had been saving all my pills (havenít spent any yet) and once I picked up an upgraded shiv recipe I found that I now had the ability.  Convenience!

Also, at least on normal, if you hit a Clicker with a bottle and you can do a one shot kill on them with a melee weapon if you hurry.  Strangely, other Clickers donít seem to hear the bottle break.

Vegas will always get my vote as the better game but since you are replaying that goes double.  Vegas has multiple endings as well as location specific endings for every town you visit; which means every play through can be different based on your actions.  F3 on the other hand will always end in the same way.
