I'm up to Deck 5, Recreation. After I finish it up I think I may install the original and play through it again. Or maybe Deus Ex or Bioshock.
82  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: System Shock 2 is returning! on: February 14, 2013, 05:20:58 PM
Bought. I hope they get the original as well, which is surprisingly really playable with the mouselook mod.

So there's no story, no challenge, no strategy, and no skill required whatsoever. There's no goal except to place and find everything. There's little room for creativity. And it requires you to spend more time not playing than playing (unless you want to start funneling real money into it). And this is supposed to be a game.

When did this happen? Where am I?
84  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: iPhone/iTouch app and game thread on: February 01, 2013, 06:34:09 PM
Is there an actual game in there somewhere or is it just "build this and splice that until you've unlocked everything"?
85  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Are You Stepping Into the Next Gen? on: February 01, 2013, 05:45:08 PM
Aside from old PC games and the occasional iOS title, and emulation, I'm pretty much done. I have no desire to ever purchase a new console or upgrade my computer for gaming purposes again.

I'm playing it and it is pretty fun if you like these type of building timer games.

And apparently I do not. Though I should've known because Pocket Planes immediately bored the hell out of me as well.

I will say that I'm a few games into Dungelot and I am liking that one. I still really, really wish some of my favorite roguelikes were on here, though.

I believe Mutant Mudds is free right now, so if you don't have it, get it. It's one of the best platformers I've played on iOS.

Not sure what more could be done, a more accurate test, if that is possible?

Hire Lance Armstrong to head the drug testing program.

he also wrote a draft for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Hey, as long as it wasn't the final draft...shudders.

I liked the first three Pirates movies, though there were definitely problems with the sequels (Davy Jones was, however, not one of those problems).

Or if you really want to save money, use a DE and pay $.09 a blade on Amazon like I do. It's really kind of stupid how little I spend on shaving now that I think about it. With blades and soap combined it's under $15.

A year.

I should splurge and buy fancier soap now that I think about it.
92  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nvidia launches a game system Project Shield on: January 07, 2013, 07:13:58 PM
I personally don't care about whether or not it offers AAA games, or any new games for that matter. Android and iOS games are games that I put up with when I'm not able to sit down at a PC or console and play something substantial. I want this thing for its emulation possibilities, and I'm betting a large portion of the people that Kickstarted it feel the same way. If it can deliver on that, then I'm probably in.

I don't like DRM. Having to put a disc in doesn't bother me. But things like phone home, always online, limited activations, third party software etc bug me.

I might recommend a different hobby, then, because PC gaming is absolutely rife with DRM outside of GOG and Humble Bundle (usually).
95  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Looks like Used Games are going away next gen on: January 03, 2013, 08:41:44 PM
I only wonder whether Microsoft will pull the rug out from under Sony by allowing used games for the next XBox just so they can steal a ton of market share from the Playstation. Going into the next gen race with the only system that doesn't allow used games could be catastrophic. Not only would they be pissing off consumers, but retailers as well, who might choose to not stock the system.

Just out of curiosity, do you pronounce the devices that Belkin and Linksys make "R-OO-TERS"?

And for another anecdote, I've never not shipped with USPS and I've never had a problem with them.

I would never ship something worth more than a hundred bucks or so without insurance. Signature confirmation probably would've helped you out here as well. That's definitely something to think about next time you sell something worth a lot of money.

World Star Hip Hop exists primarily to make you lose faith in humanity, period. Their comments section makes Yahoo! Answers look like a Mensa gathering.

It's pretty much my favorite book ever, so I'm very okay with this. I would much rather it be a three film epic than some hour and a half Michael Bay Summer Shitfest.
120  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Teach me how to Sonic on: July 14, 2012, 08:34:03 PM
Trying to speed through them at first is a good way to get to the Game Over screen in a hurry. Take it easy until you know the levels well; then you can go through them quickly if you wish (and once you're good enough you'll be able to get the rings quickly as well).

Sonic 1 is a good game, but Sonic 2 is the best because it adds the spin dash maneuver (down + jump) which makes it a lot easier to dispatch enemies and get through the levels quickly. Plus I just think the levels are much better than any of the other games. Having said that, Sonic 3, Sonic & Knuckles, and Sonic CD are all good games as well. I tried playing Sonic Rush but I just really dislike that engine. Never tried any of the other modern games.

I could be biased though because 2 was the first one I played, and I played it a lot. I can complete the game in well under an hour these days with maybe one or two deaths tops.
