that's good, as rolling is pretty important for survival slywink

Man, this is one of those games that I needed to play awhile before it "clicked" with me. At first I had issues with the combat, but that was due to me being unprepared. And there is no hand holding here at all. It's more along the lines of tossing a kid into the water so they learn how to swim.

Now if they can make the combat a little less floaty for the next game. Dark Souls did it right and everyone should copy that shit.

This is the game that Two Worlds 2 could have been....

Okami is a great little game. I enjoyed A Boy and His Blob as well.

Did the Last Story come out yet? I heard good things about that.
164  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: inXile Wasteland Kickstarter coming! on: March 31, 2012, 12:59:24 AM
as a game studio Obsidian is pretty hit or miss for me. Regardless, I gave Brian my hundred bucks, so I've got a horse in this race already
165  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors begin. on: March 30, 2012, 05:58:07 AM
I think this next go around will be down to content vs. flash, at least for me. I have an original 360 hooked up via component and it looks damn nice. Just these last few months I preordered, DESPITE my having a gamefly membership, Borderlands 2, Witcher 2, and Dragons Dogma. I did so because of the amount of gaming I feel I'll get out of them AND my ability to resell them if they don't pan out. And despite the original being a favorite of mine, I passed on Darkness 2 (due to a different dev and the rumors of it being really short, 8 hours or so). That game should have been a day one purchase, but they simply didn't deliver enough, in my mind, for me to part with 60 bucks.

Deliver content and gameplay and gamers will rush your gates like a horde. We as gamers are a particular, demanding group, but we spend money and are incredibly vocal.
166  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors begin. on: March 29, 2012, 01:03:44 PM
I think i'll be taking a wait and see with this go around. Who knows if any of this is true, but if it is then we had better see game prices come down some. 60 bucks for 15 hours and no resale? No thank you.

I'm pretty happy with the current generation still, and my backlog can keep my gaming for a reeeeeaaally long time.

I've been playing Driver:San Fransisco and Rayman Origins this week and really enjoying them both
168  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dragon Age 3 on: March 20, 2012, 04:46:06 AM
Nope, I have a real "fool me twice" thing going with Bioware now. DA2 was an utter disappointment after the 1st one, and everything I've been hearing about the ME3 ending has pushed that onto my "buy it when it's cheap" backlist.

Waiting on the Witcher 2 now, and my gaming budget in the future will be going elsewhere. Bioware has sort of become a "once great house fallen into disrepair" for me.

Did you ever read "The Chinatown Death Cloud Peril" by Paul Malmont? If not, it's a great read. If yes, the sequel just came out and it's fabulous.

The best zombie novel I've read in some time is "The Reapers are the Angels" by Alden Bell. It even has supermutants, ala Fallout. Pretty awesome.

not remote triggered, and would probably annoy the shit out of you as well, but it's pretty good for driving friends and/or colleagues nuts
171  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Job Advice - One week to decide.. on: March 02, 2012, 10:56:24 PM
are you living in Florida? I have friends that work at the state and county level down here and they are getting antsy about the shit Rick Scott has going on re: pensions and the like.

My colleague used to work juvenile justice in Ny and hated it. I'd opt for the hospital. You'll be learning valuable new skills and the shifts sound better, plus you're closer to your mom (which can be important).

Just my .02

it is? damn, how did I miss that?

Has anyone figured out how to check the time of day? I can rest at an inn for a length of time, but I have no idea what time it actually is.

I need to go into a place and do a thing at night, but haven't figured out the day/night cycle yet
174  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Syndicate] Working on the review - join our Syndicate? on: February 22, 2012, 07:10:08 PM
in a nutshell - worth buying or better as a rental. ME3 and The Witcher 2 is on deck and my budget is limited.

Warp - what a really great little game. It just oozes charm

Some KoA as well....it's fun for an hour-ish or so.

They are really pushing the magical, faerie tale stuff these last couple of years it seems. Nothing in those descriptions made me excited, but maybe the previews will.


Amc and FX have kind of spoiled me I guess. I have a pretty high standard of TV nowadays
179  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] Great shows that lasted only one season on: February 16, 2012, 02:23:21 PM
Drive starring Nathan Fillion. I think we only got 2 episodes. The wife and I tuned in for week 3 and they were showing House instead, which is never a good sign.
180  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: let's talk tablets on: February 15, 2012, 06:41:21 PM
BG2 should run with GemRB. It also looks like HoMM3 is playable on Android

181  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Majin on sale on Amazon(360) on: February 15, 2012, 03:10:41 PM
that's a great price for Enslaved! It's a shame we'll never see a sequel to it.

 I'd jump on it, but I just bought a couple from Gamefly and the wife would flip if another box arrived
182  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: let's talk tablets on: February 15, 2012, 03:05:10 PM
Oh, and the warranty was a 2 year Spillage and Accident warranty. The fella at the store said that either they fix it or replace it. I'm quite certain the wife it going to damage this thing, so that sealed the deal for me. I'll have to report back on the service once it finally happens, but CompUsa has always taken good care of me.
183  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: let's talk tablets on: February 15, 2012, 03:00:56 PM
No issues, it looked like a brand new tablet. No manual or anything, but I don't see that being an problem. The price was 299 and the 2 year warranty was 80 bucks. With tax it was 400, which was the price of the 16gig new (Best Buy had the 32gig on sale for 400, but screw them - I'm pretty much boycotting BB at this point).

 It seems like a solid, well made product. Only time will tell, but so far I'm really pretty pleased with it. So much that I let drop that I would like a Transformer Prime someday.

Apparently you can run the Infinity Engine games on Android . You do it from an SD card, which currently leaves IOS out. I'll report back once I get 'em running (I have the boxed versions and the GoG ones, so I just need a MicroSD card now)

Super Awesome Android Infinity Engine App
184  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: let's talk tablets on: February 14, 2012, 11:20:01 PM
Well, I gave it to the missus and it was a hit. She played Angry Birds all morning. Tomorrow I have to go buy a Ghost Shield and install it so the screen doesn't get scratched.
It really is a neat tablet. Good screen, responsive, easy to use. I had to "force quit" one of the apps, but i figure that's just the way open systems roll..

Now to sneak the Infinity Engine games on there slywink
185  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (02/13) on: February 14, 2012, 06:09:59 AM
I bought Vanquish and RS Vegas 2 today - sorta behind the curve here smile
186  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: beard help on: February 14, 2012, 02:02:52 AM
thanks for the replies! I bought some Wild Man oil, so i'll try it out and see if it works. My job is pretty much just me and I can do damn well what I want, so I'm going all caveman with it. Hopefully my marriage will survive. smile

And Pete is indeed The Man for jumping right in!
187  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / beard help on: February 13, 2012, 07:04:09 PM
Any of you fellas have experience with growing a beard? I'm 3 months in and it's getting pretty unruly. I'm aiming for an epic viking biker he-man beard, so i don't want to trim it back, but I grow a Hagrid apparently. I'm starting to feel like Peter Griffin here, family of birds and all smile

Anything you guys use to tame it and keep it soft? Conditioner just makes my beard greasy.

thanks for any help, my Man-ucation didn't cover this
188  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: IPad Repair? on: February 13, 2012, 03:22:39 PM
is the crack in the plastic? If repair is out the question then I would maybe JB Weld it in order to prevent it from cracking further.

190  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: let's talk tablets on: February 09, 2012, 02:03:32 PM
I ended up getting a refurbished Transformer from CompUsa for 299 and added in the accident and spillage warranty for less than the cost of a new one. I'll report back on how she digs it.
191  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: let's talk tablets on: February 06, 2012, 05:27:19 PM
good looking out guys. I was thinking that the Prime was overkill, but I tend to overbuy when it comes to stuff like this.

I figure i'll try em out in the store and see what's what. Thanks for the tip on the original Transformer, I may go that route.
192  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / let's talk tablets on: February 04, 2012, 08:45:37 PM
The wife expressed interest in a Kindle Fire, but that seems more of a glorified E-reader. I've been looking at the Asus Transformer Prime and the IPad 2. She would primarily use it for movies, books and games, but she is starting a new position with greater responsibility and I'd like her to be able to use it for productivity as well (keeping track of inventory, events, etc...)

Thoughts?
193  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Next Gen consoles to not allow used games? on: January 26, 2012, 09:41:13 PM
this would effectively kill Gamefly as well, which is a service I use quite a bit. That plus trading games with my friends would discourage me from gaming on an Xbox console. I have X amount of money to spend, and I can quite easily spend it on other things. Right now I buy about 6-8 games per year, in addition to renting, because I know that I can get my money back from them and trade them with my friends.

I understand that developers get the shaft a little, but that is no reason to screw the consumer. In the last few months I purchased SR3, Dark Souls, and Skyrim. Next month I'm purchasing Amalur. I'm choosing purchasing over renting because I knew I was going to get my monies worth (I have about 120 hours in Skyrim alone). I will not pay 60 bucks for 8 hours of gaming and that's where the used and rental market comes in. Take that away, you take away half my gaming and most of my incentive to play the lesser titles. I would be all about it if it meant more new and innovative IP's and better overall gaming, but I really doubt that would happen.

I'm quite certain that MS is doing their homework though, so perhaps this is fiscally viable and the market will allow it. I wonder if Sony would follow suit? May be an opening for them to grab some of us die hard Xbox folks

that's a good point. It didn't really bother me that much, but I remember my wife commenting on it
197  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS2 vs PSP on: December 18, 2011, 06:54:51 PM
buy The Mark of Kri - one of the best games of all time. If Dob Bluth made Conan the Barbarian, it would be this game
198  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Which JRPG should I play? on: December 18, 2011, 06:52:20 PM
Eternal Sonata. The game take place in a fever dream on Chopin's deathbed. It was a wonderful game and a nice entry into JRPG's

you may also want to check your local library. Mine has an entire aisle for just graphic novels. That plus interlibrary loan gets me about 80 percent of what I want to read.

They reissued Savage Sword of Conan in omnibus form. I would recommend those, they were a pretty big part of summers during my childhood.
