I don't trust Gerstmann to judge any Wii title.

This.  Other M may be a disaster or it may not but Gerstmann is about the last person in the world I would look at for advice on a Wii game. 

Ditto, that pear shaped goof really has a chip against the Wii.

I wish someone would rear end me. That way their insurance would pay for a new car. I dream of that day.

I've totaled two cars. The first one was an accident, the second less so. Both times, insurance paid out considerably more than the car was really worth. I recommend it for cashing in on a beater.

Collisions are a lot less beneficial if you're fond of your car. I was never very happy with the repairs after I nearly totaled my current car, even though it was only body damage. The paint job started showing some bubbles and pits and hairline cracks after a year. Now I'm kind of hoping to get hit again so I can repaint.

I have a paid off 2002 Ford Taurus with 170,000 miles on it. I would take anything I could get for it and be dancing in the street.

Also, I have no idea why the IGN review says it's only 6 hours. I played through the game very fast, and there is just no way you could get through it on your first play through in just 6 hours.
2048  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fragile - new RPG from Eternal Sonata developers on: March 31, 2010, 03:59:29 PM
I am writing my review up on this one now. But if you were worried about the length, don't be. It's actually over 10 hours. I could see people easily taking 20 hours to collect everything and fully explore the game. In my opinion it's actually a perfect length because anything longer would have been too long.

I hesitate to ask...but by what logic do the Westboro people like dead soldiers?

Dead soldiers are signs that God is punishing America for its bad behavior, which is a wonderful thing.  I think.

Yes there are gays in America, thus when America soldiers die it is gods way of punishing us for having gay people. Crazy logic, but it's what they think. I suppose they would rather we kill all the gay people in the country. Since that is clearly crybaby what god would want us to do.

Why exactly did he sue them? As reprehensible and moronic as those people are they still have the right to protest peacefully. I personally would hire the local biker gang to show up and make their lives hell if it was my son's funeral, but that's just me.

I never subjected myself to that movie because of how bad I heard it was.  smile  Maybe I should check it out.  Is it like Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus bad or more like Transformers 2 bad? 

It's not campy bad, it's just bad because it has such a huge budget and yet it still sucks. If the Mega Shark people had the same budget their movie would most likely be much better than Battlefield Earth.

That guy is my hero. I really need to re-watch that movie, the first time I saw it I went in thinking it was going to be the worst movie ever, and I came away thinking it wasn't good, but far from the worst. That was several years ago, I need to go back and see how wrong I was.

I'm still playing on the Elendilmir server, though my play time has been limited these last two weeks and will be limited for the rest of this week, due to being slammed by game reviews. Add me to your friends though I mostly play as Hanton (a 65 Ward) and Mclush (a 43 Runekeeper). If you have any questions about Wardens let me know, I love that class.

They actually explained that- the NSA team showed up with new cellphones for everybody. 

Ah I must have missed that when I was rolling my eyes from having NSA magically show up again right after another CTU attack. At least this time CTU showed them who is boss, rather than having NSA take over.

I'm about half way through this game (i.e. I'm just over 3 hours into it.) I will say that this game will be extremely polarizing. Some people may love it, but others will hate it. The game has an outstanding atmosphere and the story is artistic in that it tries to play with your emotions, BUT the actual fighting mechanics in this game are almost non existent. It reminds me a lot of the early Silent Hill games, in that the gameplay isn't that great, but the mood, atmosphere and story will keep some gamers going.

I will have my full review up by the end of the week.

How does it compare to the new Silent Hill game that was on the Wii?  I loved that one.  Not a lot of fighting in it at all, either (more running from fighting).  But it was all story and atmosphere.

I haven't played the new Silent Hill, but from what I've read about it the two are pretty similar. Except in Fragile you actually do fight things and level up, it's just that the fighting is so shallow, it basically boils down to hitting the A button until the enemy is dead.

I thought this last episode was the best so far this (reportedly last) season. '24' Rules!! That is all.

This one comes in second to the episode where Freckles went nuts and stabbed the Russian dude in the eye for me. I REALLY wish the stupid Starbuck story would die. It's almost as bad as Kim being kidnapped 18 times during seasons 1 and 2. The difference is that the rest of seasons 1 and 2 kicked ass, so it was easy to forgive the dumb Kim segments, season 8 doesn't have that luxury.

I'm sure this is how every religion started out.  It's just that this is happening now and people can see how ridiculous it is before it takes hold.  I wonder how they are able to build these grand structures if their membership is dropping as quickly as the article states.  

Oh well, I guess we'll all be Unitologists soon any way.  Altman be praised!!

Because they have a lot of very rich members who are encouraged to give a lot and often.

scientologists are rich?  Maybe I should join? (perhaps it will rub off?)

Not all of them are rich. But it's a known fact that they do target rich people to join. As seen by their celebrity center and active recruitment of dentists, doctors and lawyers. On the flip side, a lot of their member aren't rich because they have given everything they can to the cult/church and have nothing left.

Quote from: jersoc on March 15, 2010, 08:05:57 PM

i blame western rpgs for ruining good rpgs. FF games have never been about vast exploration. Hell, even ME and ME2 has you funneled down corridors. Not really sure why people complain so much. The exploration in Fable 2 is pitiful, at best. In fact, Fallout 3 is the only good example I can think of.

I'm somewhat in agreement with this, I hate that Western RPGs have created this expectation for all RPGs to be open-world. I really hope FF13 sells extremely well, I want it to outsell Fallout 3 and ME2, so that other developers can have some breathing room when it comes to making a linear, story-driven RPG without open-ended plot elements. I'm sorry, but games like Fallout 3 and ME2 don't have nearly the same impact in story telling and character development as a Final Fantasy.

I actually disagree with this when it comes to ME2. I think the characters in ME2 are actually more realistic and deeper than those in FF13. In fact to me the characters, their backgrounds and motivations are one of the strong points of ME2.

...and I'm out.  It's getting too painful.  I've given it enough chances but 24 is dead to me now.  I'll always have the first three series...

It's ironic(?) or just a coincidence but when I scanned the thread titles it looked like "24 Season 8 hits Rock Bottom" but I had just transposed the Lindsay Lohan thread title into this one lol.  Still with last night's resurrection of the Starbuck plot from hell, this might be a true statement.

The commercial for next week was so desperate that they actually TELL you exactly when there will be a big twist in the plot lol.  So you might want to give it just one more week/chance to impress you.  

I'm still hoping at 3:52, the twist is that Starbuck is a CYLON!!!!  At 3:53 Freddie Prinze becomes a VAMPIRE!!!!  The 2 of them team up with that guy they killed who will re-emerge as a ZOMBIE at 3:55!!!!  The Unholy Alliance of a Cylon/Vampire/Zombie will only be taken out when Jack teams up with (at 3:59) Special Guest Star Sarah Michelle Gellar reprising her role as Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  Cue the music!  Cue the timer clock countdown, beep beep beep!

You know I would actually watch that. Hopefully they throw Spike in there too.

I want vampires, werewolves, banshees, devils, demons and angels in battle soon!

Well you will definitely know who the killer is next episode. Plus, season 2 features more vamps and a demon/god of sorts. Supposedly werewolves are in the mix for season 3.
