Candice! icon_evil  They couldn't have assembled a dumber group of heroes. 

Colby is such a dork.  How could he play the role of moderator between Amanda and Danielle, alone in a single bedroom, when he should have been doing everything in his power to instigate them into a catfight?  "Well, since neither of you can make a good argument, this will have to be settled by feats of strength and dexterity."  I guess I expected too much from him.  He was the guy that invited his mom to snuggle up and sleep with him in the back of his xterra popup tent.

I don't understand the appeal of these $25 mounts.  It's not like you have to complete some special quest or defeat a tough boss to get them.  All you are doing when you ride one is advertising that you are willing to spend $25 on a re-skinned mount.  Where is the nerd cred in that?

Then it would blow your mind how much cosmetic stuff people buy in Free Realms.  SOE figured out that people are willing to pay for all sorts of cosmetic crap in the $5-25 range.  As a business model it's a great idea.  The only way I could see any of the blizzard store stuff in wow screwing things up for other gamers is if they could gave an unfair advantage in pvp.  Based on the sales numbers posted earlier for Sparkley horsey, there seems to be a lot of people who could care less about nerd cred earned through grinding instances and raids.

JT - We're going to make Survivor history with this move.

JT - Guys, we're going to make Survivor history.

True words JT. 

I couldn't stand Parvati in her previous 2 seasons, but she is all kinds of awesome in this one.  I loved that line from 2 weeks ago when she said something to the effect of "JT bared his heart to Russell [laugh out loud]...Russell is going to stab it 1000 times [more laughing]...and then hand it to me.  [Straight face] Then I'm gonna eat it up [adorably sinister smile and laughter].  She won me over in that moment.

This week's episode was all about moving pieces around the chessboard for me.  I thought for the briefest of moments that the producers were going to sonic fry both Jin and Sun as they ran towards each other.  I actually started yelling at them.  Idiots!  Wait!  I'll admit that part of me was slightly disappointed that I didn't get to see them get sonicuted inches from each other, that would have been on par with the self detonation from last week.

I'm surprised there hasn't already been litigation against the business.  That's huge liability exposure, even for a martial arts facility.  All it takes is one or two big settlements to shut down a small business.  If nothing changes, I would get as far away from that place as possible, especially as an instructor.  The owner better have good insurance if he decides not to boot that guy.

I had a *gasp* moment for just a second in the show (of course, the *gasp* was only in my deluded imagination) smile. When Hurley came walking into non-Locke's camp with the torch, for a split second, I thought it was going to be Desmond walking into camp with the calm, dreamy expression on his face telling Smokey that he was returning the torch that Smokey dropped down the well before he threw Desmond in. Would have been a cool twist if it would have worked that way.

I was right there with you thinking the exact same thing at that moment.  I even had my own trash talking line prepared for when Desmond rounded the corner to face Lockemonster.  Suck on this brotha!  Unfortunately, Hurley emerged, true to the earlier foreshadowing in the episode.

I was watching the episode quietly after my family went to sleep, got to that scene, and burst out with uncontrollable laughter.  I couldn't help it.  It was like they injected Monty Python into Lost for that moment.  What an awesome way to go out as an actor on a hit show.  Words, words, words, boom!

Poor Juliette, she has fallen so far.  What a horrible alt reality she has, to end up on a bad sci fi drama with dialogue that makes George Lucas look good.  She needs to bail the f**k out of V.  From this week's episode of V, "Make no mistake about it!"  Come on, who speaks like that in real life?  Desmond needs to get to her ASAP to get her off that show and back to Lost.

My crazy idea is to charge a "decaying" monthly fee. That means the monthly fee amount declines by, say, $1 each month you play, to a certain point (not to zero  icon_razz). The idea is you reward the player a bit for their loyalty.

So after your free month, maybe it goes...
$14.99
$13.99
$12.99
$11.99
$10.99
$9.99
And I dunno, maybe after 6 months, you lock it at $9.99 monthly. Crazy, stupid maybe. But if you're going to brag about charging whatever you feel like, you might as well experiment.  icon_razz

That's a pretty good idea, but I'd reverse it.

After month 1, charge the user $7.99 and then raise it $1 each month.  Get the player hooked and then raise the rate.  

I like the idea of making it random each month, like a loot roll.  You never know what you're going to pay.  It could be $2.99 in April, $14.50 in May, and then $5.23 in June.  They can even have a gamer points system, the more you play, the higher chance you have of rolling a good monthly payment.  If you have a really bad roll, the friends you referred are charged too.

I'm up to 31 faction missions completed, with 9 strongholds captured.  I think there are 39 or 49 total faction missions?  Either way, they've been fun.  It's a testament to the variety of the faction missions that I've actually remained interested enough to complete 31, and not even realize I'd done that many.  I stopped doing agency missions after white tiger.  Once I'm done with the faction stuff, I'll return back to the main story and do one final push through the agency missions. 

I'm already at 25 hours played time, and still feel like there is much to do and explore.  I can't believe how well the game handles the seamless transitions between ground action and flying.  Even the smallest touches are welcome, like the helo rotor wash near the water, or dusting off during a takeoff or landing. The graphics are amazing, especially at dawn or sunset.  There are times when I just relax and fly around the islands picking up new locations, and then I see 3 large cranes and feel compelled to blow them up.

I know I'm playing too much JC2 when I feel a rush of adrenaline after spotting a communication tower, water tower or transformer while driving with my family in our minivan over the weekend.  I saw a couple of large construction cranes this past weekend while driving to dinner with my family, it was like they were taunting me.

So does Desmond now understand both universes?  Is he traveling between them like he did in time?  My mind is blown AGAIN.

I think the combination of the electromagnetic beating he took coupled with touching Penny who is his "constant" triggered his ability to "exist" or "understand" both timelines.

That's how I understood it too.  When he emerged from the electromagnetic thrashing he seemed to have the perception, experiences, and understanding of both realities. 

The actors for Desmond and Penny are always awesome together.  They make most of the cast look like amateurs.

Russell is bar none the best player in survivor history. It's too bad it comes down to a jury vote of the people he burned to get to the finale. He's like the Rasputin of survivor, he can't be killed.

I agree.  Russell would have won last season if the jury valued his day to day tactics.  Unfortunately, the jury vote is just as much a part of the game as the day to day maneuvering.  Russell puts himself completely at the mercy of his peers at the end game, with no investment at all in the social aspect of the game.  He believes (like I do) that the jury should judge him on the merit of his strategy, but that's a big assumption considering the headcases that usually end up on the jury.

 
1415  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains on: April 06, 2010, 07:24:32 PM
I thought Rob had Russell figured out early in the season, but he continued to underestimate him.  Rob said a few times that Russell was now playing with the pros, and that he would learn that lesson the hard way.  Rob's comment was eerily correct, but not for Russell, for him.  Russell still stinks at the long term social game, but in the day to day tactics of survivor, he's awesome.

I was glad to see Colby back.  Weak Colby was no fun to watch.

I think Coach's brain is going to be mush by the end of this season.  He is a naive nutty lamb amongst wolves, and he doesn't have the brainpower to keep up.  He's on the wrong team too.  He's a nutjob for sure, but he's more of a benevolent crazy, not a calculating villain.  Rob's "Little Man" comment is going to mess with his head.

The villains team is going to crash and burn without Rob.

I was hoping that Richard would have been from ancient Egypt, somewhere around 4,000-6,000 years old.  I mean, he has the cool black eye liner to go with that motif.  I guess I was just hoping for more dramatic mystery than what was revealed in the episode.  Even something like he was a feared and ruthless pirate captain would have been cool, rather than a prisoner.

They played enough dialogue games in this episode that I'm still not sure who is good/evil, if there is such a neatly defined concept on the island.  The producers definitely use the imagery for good/evil.  The white rock.  Jacob wears a white shirt, Smoke Monster wears a black shirt.  Jacob even uses words like evil and dark to describe the Smoke Monster.  All of that seems too much like a convenient setup by the writers though.  

I do think that Richard was royally messed with by both sides, for their own personal agendas.  It also supports the theory that both sides need people to do their dirty work.  Most of their energy is spent recruiting.

In the span of about 2 hours last night I did the following:
- Attacked a Casino
- Rescued a drunk informant while hanging from a helicopter with no pilot and grapplelining into a skywalk to save him...after I blew out all of the windows and glass
- Blew up countless jeeps during a vehicle pursuit by shooting out their tires
- Took down a stronghold hidden away and protected by a snow covered mountain
- Found a runway for fighter jets at the base of a mountain
- Hijacked a jet...crashed the jet
- Blew up several small outposts, stole helicopters, destroyed towers, generators, comm equipment, stole an armored car-tank, blew up more outposts
- Found a port.  Blew up everything.  Hijacked a cool military powerboat. 
- Discovered a large island refinery plant while joyriding in the powerboat.  Hijacked a patrolling attack helicopter, blew up the entire island refinery plant.
- Found a sniper on one of the refinery upper structures (silly laser sight gave his position away), yanked him down with my grapple, took his sniper rifle, countersniped all of the snipers that survived my initial 15 minutes of destruction with headshots while zipping around the upper structures.
- Called in a batman like speedboat from the black market, returned back to the main island, shot up some government patrol boats on the way.
- Drove the patrol boat out of the water into the streets of a small village.  Hopped out, hijacked a ladder fire truck, and drove it around the village smashing into security jeeps and pulled down a statue.

It seemed like 15 minutes to me, but the game clock showed I'd been playing for 2 hours.

I'm starting to think they hired him just to stir up the internet and bring attention to their game.  Which worked for me, because I had never heard of Alganon.  His public internet persona is toxic and nuclear, so I can't think of any other reason to hire him into a leadership role unless the investors are stupid, insane, or unaware of who he is...which equals stupid.

It begs the question: if the PSP Go was released at a lower price point, say $199, and all of the games were 100% transferable to digital format (or, upon providing proof of owning the original you could make a trade perhaps), would it have been a success?

Totally.

You get the convenience of carrying around multiple games with you at once (like the pirates can), with better loading times (like the pirates can), and it's an overall smaller design.

As you described it, the PSP Go would be an improvement across the board (assuming you like the smaller size) over the older designs. As is, the PSP Go is a total downgrade if you already own games/movies, and a sidegrade at best if you don't have it (due to it being more expensive to buy over the older models, and the expensive PSN Store (compared to retail, especially in the used department)).

I would have bought that.

Some of you are only putting the debuffs on when they are staggered?  Are they not effective to use when they are not staggered?  For tough fights I've been debuffing right away, so that when they do get staggered, I can just focus on damage. 

I get frustrated (at myself) if I have to use stagger time to buff/debuff, or spend a lot of time healing.  I feel like I've wasted that opportunity, or that I should have timed the stagger build up better.

Quote from: Butterknife on March 16, 2010, 10:29:31 PM

I guess my gaming personality must be highly resistant to addiction or something.  Once a game stops being fun, I stop playing it.  All of the things that are listed to keep me playing usually drive me away.  A boss battle that is too hard, things that I've earned disappearing, a lack of rewards for some time (a boring section) -- I can list many games that I've quit for each reason.

I'm the same way.  Add in having to pay a monthly fee, and my tolerance level goes way down for something that is no longer fun to me.  The second a game starts to feel like an obligation or responsibility, I'm usually out.  I have enough obligations and responsibilities in RL.  I just don't have large blocks of time I can devote to mmorpgs or mmos.  3 young kids and a spouse have most of my devoted free time.  I can usually do an hour at a time, maybe 90 minutes in the late evening. Weekends are family time, sports, activities, etc.   

Regarding mmos, I tend to binge play them, and once the fun curve slows down or starts to feel like a job, I'll move on to something else.  Unfortunately, that makes me pretty flaky when it comes to playing mmorpgs with friends and guildies beyond a few months.

Yeah, I have no idea what's going on there.  There is some meter that runs down, but you can also go into gestalt mode.  Not sure how you are decide when to move from one to the other.  Just before it runs out?

Yes.  The higher you build Gestalt (basically the same idea as Staggers), the longer you can use Gestalt mode.  So you want to build it up as much as possible before time runs out and then trigger Gestalt mode at the last second. 
What does the tachometer thing do after you go into Gestalt mode?  I figured out the timing of the purple gestalt bar, but that dial tachometer thing that appears in the UI after I activate gestalt mode is all kinds of weird.

Are you sure you aren't looking at different tiers (ie comparing Tier 2 skills from one character to Tier 3)? 
I donít think so.  Hope and Vanille had really low CP costs for their 1st tier medic rings(60-90 per), while Lightningís 1st tier Medic costs are significantly more expensive (200-300 per).  Maybe the roles they start with are cheaper to level up than the roles they pick up throughout the game?

Coach is such a nutcase, but he is the biggest source of entertainment for me each week.  Even Russell was surprised by his insanity, literally bowing before him.  The bowing part surprised me, but not that Coach would jump to Russell.  He feels spurned by Rob, like a jilted lover.  Rob should have spent more time on the island doing...stuff, dragon slaying stuff, with Coach.  He could have been Coach's Merlin.  Instead, Coach has sworn fealty to the sleazy oil guy.  Awesome!
