Quote from: Aganazer on October 05, 2009, 01:03:26 PM

It may be a bit premature to say this without finishing it, but Risen may be the best CRPG I have ever played. I like the British tough guy humor in the dialog (almost reminds me of the movie Snatch). I like the long drawn out melee battles with all the positioning, blocking, parrying, etc. I like that I got my ass handed to me by anything I tried to fight for the first 5 hours of playing. The world has been utterly believable in almost every detail. No loads between areas. Great character advancement with a big variety of things to learn. I like all the traps, secrets, and puzzles in the dungeons. Other than the cringe-worthy jump animation I can't think of anything I don't like about Risen.

Ultima Underworld, Gothic, and Arx Fatalis were my favorites before, but this has topped all of them so far. Unless something goes horribly wrong in the second half of the game, I may have found a new favorite CRPG.

That's good to hear, because that is my exact favorites list as well. Now I just need time to play the game.

Get the Metroid Prime Trilogy set that just came out. You should love it if you are into FPS games. It combines FPS gameplay with the classic metroidvania power up and explore mechanic.

Technically it's supposed to be Tuesday, but stores are allowed to sell it early if they have it. This is why Atlus has said that if you get the game early, you will not be able to get online until Tuesday because the servers won't be up yet.

This is all true. Atlus actually sent us a request to post the info in our news section about the servers going live on Tuesday. Apparently a lot of people got the game early, but Atlus isn't planning on opening up the North American servers until Tuesday.

I loved the first game.  Looking forward to the sequel. 

I'd love to see them add co-op if possible.

that would be fine,as long as in single player games the co-op partner is replaced by AI,like Resi Evil 5...if you are playing single player,then keep it like Dead Space 1

 I want no part of a co-op mode in this game. I love the first one and thought it was great, turning it into RE5 is a step in the wrong direction.

I would like to see a greater variety in the environments though. That ship got old by about chapter 8. Maybe some outdoor planet environments and caves.

A bit of a contradiction there, Scraper. You need the Moria expansion to play the Warden or Rune Keeper.

Doh, yeah I forgot about that.
2136  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: So who's getting the PSP Go? on: September 22, 2009, 07:04:08 PM
Here's my problem with the digital DL. I live in the country, I have DSL but the download speed is capped at 90k, this means that any file over 100megs takes FOREVER. Anything over 300megs and I just leave the system on over night and let it DL while I'm asleep. I'm not the only one with this problem either. The DL only option is not a great option for me. So even if I wanted a Go I still wouldn't get it.

Quote from: El-Producto on September 22, 2009, 06:50:21 PM

So, I'm very tempted to fire up an MMO again.  I am as casual as they get, might have 4 or 5 hours a week.  I know what you are saying, just play a SP RPG, but I enjoy the atmosphere in an MMO, and the constantly changing worlds.  I played LOTRO for the first month, and don't remember much about it.  I've lost my disks, but guess I could d/l the client.

What I'm asking is, how casual friendly is this game. I just want to do some questing, find some cool loot and fight some bosses.  I don't want to join guilds or anything, nor do I care about endgame.

If I decide to bite, what's the best way to get back in.  Resub, or by it new.. I think it's like $9.99.

I would probably just resub, since the $9.99 will just get you Moria and chances are you won't get to Moria anyway. So just DL the client. Also if you start over I would recommend playing as a Rune Keeper or Warden, they are both solo friendly and I think they are the two most fun classes in the game.

My guess is that they will do northern mirkwood and the wood elves next, maybe even some of the lonely mountain, then the next major update will be Rohan and Minas Tirith.

So any interest in choosing a game for September? I just put boot camp on my Macbook, so I can now play slightly newer pc games than I could before smile

Although when I tried the Red Faction demo (original, not Guerrilla) I could see through all the walls. Rainbow Six 3 works quite well, though. I haven't seen how far I can push it. I know it runs the Mac version of Lego Batman very nicely.

Shadow of the Colossus or ICO would be my recommendations.

I'm thinking I'm going to role a new toon within the next week, and we have several players in their mid to late 20s as well as a bunch of lvl 60s who are willing to help with fellowship quests, just as long as you ask.

I finally finished the Hillmen the other day in Himbar in Angmar. I tried to explain to someone in-game that you DON'T get credit for the deed if the targets con "grey" to you (I tried bashing some grey hillmen in Angmar, and they don't change the deed counter). I just never got around to working on it until 50 or so (on my other two Mains I was wise enough to beat up on the Lone Lands Hillmen much earlier).

I'd like to get pages 16, 17 for "The Best Defence" (it's a nice shield bashing legendary trait), but they just won't drop from the Gabilshur (sp?) dwarves in MM, though 2 other pages did. Only Page 39 ever seems available in the auction house. I've checked numerous databases about it, but I'm really stumped.

My Guardian's to 53 now. If I ever reach 60 I'll try to be better about participating in the end-game stuff. I haven't played my Hunter in many months now so I don't know how useful I'd be with Georic. His hotkey setup is like a Sudoko puzzle.  confused

I still have a couple of free trials for this btw, if anyone ever needs one.


I farmed all of my pages inside of Giblin Town. I know this works for Wards, not sure about guards.

I don't understand all this Entourage hate.

The show plays like a bad school play, to me. The actors pop off their lines one right after another without any pauses, without any natural conversation mannerisms. The situations with Drama, while sometimes funny, are often just over-the-top stupid, like in this past episode. There's very little that's actually likable about any of the characters - Vince is just there as an excuse to get chicks naked. Drama I already covered. Turtle is not interesting in the least. Eric is constantly whining. Ari is about the only likable thing on the show.

This video kinda sums it up pretty well.

And yet, as I said, I still watch. Probably helps that there's no interesting TV on right now, heh.

I have to agree with Cheeba here, I watch it and enjoy it, but I don't like most of the main characters. The wooden line delivery coupled with the fact that they are almost always walking while talking gets really old. Who the hell walks around as much as these four guys do. They are always walking somewhere together while trying to have a serious conversation. If they aren't walking together then they are sitting on a balcony sipping beer. Maybe they walk around all day while looking for a new balcony to sip beer on, then walk on to the next.

Godric is too cool to last past this season.  The only two I would bet on would be Bill and Eric...everyone else is fair game.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Godric didn't make it past last night.  He sure did go out in a ball of flame, though.
