I just found a wiki for Dragon's Age and the page for this quest says that the "inquire around town" part is optional. Do you know if this is true, Makeshift? Cuz that would be a huge relief. I'd hate to restart at this point.

Yeah, I actually stumbled upon the place you have to go, so I did it without talking to anyone first. Head to the place called Hillfigure Knoll, north on the map. Look around near the large sketch of a soldier drawing in the ground and you'll find a small hill type thing (a knoll, I guess) and I think it activates a cutscene, then you go inside a cave area and some somewhat cool story stuff happens.

Here's a map, by the way. See that bit of path in the shape of a soldier at the top? You'll have to zoom in.

So I just finished the Devil May Cry HD Collection. It was a pleasure to visit these games. Although they weren't as good as I remembered them to be.

I bought DMC 1-3 on PS2 a while back because everyone always talks about how good those games are. I didn't get too far but I wasn't finding it to be that great. I was playing the first game and I think I got stuck on the first boss. It was some spider/scorpion thing? After several attempts I realised I wasn't having any fun so just dropped them and started playing something else.

I'd really recommend trying them out again, and playing on easy if you're not used to that kind of games.
Devil May Cry can be really unforgiving on normal and piss easy on easy. Which is one of it's biggest flaws to be honest.

Hey, Makeshift, what are some good ways to earn rift crystals quickly? I don't have Live, so I can't rent out my pawn.

Thanks. The thing is, though, I can't even get online with my 360. I can't get wifi to work and I have no modem or any outlets for internet upstairs. I might need to get a new wireless router.

Does completing a quest always get you rift crystals or only sometimes?

I think rift crystal rewards from quests are completely random, your best bet is getting them as random drops from enemies. But that would take way too long to get the desired amount, I'm afraid until you can get online you don't have much options. Sorry!

dang. Well, at least I have no interest in buying any of those items that let you change your main pawn's appearance. I'm quite happy with how I made her. I made her a strider with the shortest height possible and pointy elf ears so she looks like a halfling. I think she's pretty cool. I named her Leimu, which is finnish for "flame".

Yeah, I'm pretty set on having her as a strider. I like the specials. same with having my character as a fighter.

If you're into that sort of thing. If you ever get online let me know, I'll rent your pawn.

I dunno. It'll probably be a while.

Just purchased a book from Amazon that I think looks pretty damn interesting. It's about 2 years old now I think but it's called "1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die". It starts with games from the 70's and goes up to 2010. It's perhaps worth pointing out that at least half the book seems to be games from 2000 onwards and there's probably some games that should have been taken out and replaced with better games that aren't in there, but it seemed like a nice book for me to have as a video game collector. More of a keep-sake than an actual "best of the best" guide type thing.

The book itself doesn't go into much detail on the games but the quality of the book itself seems pretty awesome. Some big full page screen shots in colour and such. Definitely seems like something I'd skim through from time to time and will no doubt give me ideas of games to try and get copies of.

Only cost me £12 too, so if any of you guys like this kind of thing it might be worth checking out.

Picture from Amazon. I literally just ordered my copy so don't have it yet.

Do any of you guys purchase video game related magazines?

I was watching HappyConsoleGamer's video about the last ever issues of Nintendo Power magazine. It made me miss my days of flicking through magazines. Back the in PS2 days I'd pick up a PS2 based magazine if it had information on a game I was looking forward to. Today I had to go into town and while I was there I thought I'd take a wander into WHSmiths (place that sells books, magazines and stuff) and have a look through their magazine section. I expected there to not be all that much but to my surprise there was plenty of them. There was a whole shelf dedicated to video game magazines.

Anyway I left the shop with a copy of Retro Gamer magazine. Flicking through it brings back a kind of nostalgia. Not because of the games featured in it, but because I've not had a magazine since I was in my early teens. Then I discovered that there's a 50% off voucher in here, so I can subscribe and get 6 issues for £15. I'm probably going to subscribe if the content in here is any good, which it probably will be.

So yea, any of you guys still buy gaming magazines?

What the hell? I've had this problem with Sleeping Dogs twice, now. I go to continue my game, and a big chunk of progress is gone and I'm sent back to an earlier point in the game. This game autosaves after freaking everything, so I know neglecting to save isn't the issue.

I'm manually saving this shit from now on.

I used to get PSM and the Official Playstation Magazine years ago. And for a year, I got Electronic Gaming Monthly because I got a deal at Gamestop when I bought Bioshock. But no, I don't bother with magazines anymore. I get news on the internet. IGN and /r/gamernews are my usual places to look.

I used to read X360 and the Official Xbox Magazine, and another one but I can't remember what it was called. I used to enjoy them a lot, not even for the discs they gave out, I never really touched those. I just liked flicking through, reading articles about games I liked or games I was looking forward to, maybe even games I didn't know anything about beforehamd. It could be a lot of fun.

I haven't had one in a while though, they're quite expensive and I don't really have any need for them.

*Copy-pasting the same shizz I posted in the AFL since it's video game related*

I'm planning to save up loads of cash (don't we all), and I'm intending that (hopefully) by the end of this year/sometime next year, I'm gonna get myself either a new handheld system or a new console.
Right now, these are the candidates:
Nintendo DS (or the 3DS, I don't know)
Playstation Portable (or the Vita)
A PS3
A Wii U
Is there anything I should expect from these systems? (E.g. big releases, how not-suck it is, etc.)

Getting a Wii U this early would be a bit of a waste and the PS3 probably has the best overall library of those.

I never cared for the DS but it has an enormous library that's fairly cheap for the most part now, and for the price difference you may as well go for the 3DS (they're backwards compatible, right?)

The PSP is easily my favorite handheld, but unless you're into JRPGs it's not really worth your time. The Vita is a paperweight.

I'd say either go for a PS3, or a PSP + a 3DS. Or be really fucking cool and get an amiga 1200.

Looks pretty nice. I've also seen a book called "1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die" (same publisher I guess), which was fun to skim through as well.

Next time I'm in the book store I'll see if I can find the 1001 games book.

I had a few N64 magazines back in the day. There wasn't any internet yet so reading such magazines was the best way to get to know secrets about games, read game reviews and to know what new games were coming up.

I remember every issue had lots of stuff about Ocarina of Time since there were so many secrets in that game. Also, people send in letters with all kinds of bullshit ways in which you supposedly could obtain the Triforce, which was kinda funny.

Yea, magazines about current games are probably a bit pointless now in honesty, since the online game news sites cover all that stuff anyway. The only reason that I find Retro Gamer appealing, aside from me being a retro gamer, is that they have a lot of content that you're not going to find on the internet. They track down old game developers and interview them. There's articles about what it was like to work at certain studios in their day. They have features where developers give an insight to how a game was developers and stuff like that. It's obviously not for everyone but it seems like a magazine that's actually worth me buying because of it's unique content. Plus, it's just nice to read about retro stuff.

My copy will probably arrive tomorrow or the following day, so I'll probably end up giving my opinion of it in this thread.

They also have one about books and albums. Those don't appeal as much to me but the books do seem like they'd be nice collectors items for anyone who's interested in that sort of thing. I'm hoping that by flicking through it I'll get inspiration to buy certain games I hadn't heard of or forgot existed.

Haha, yea the appeal of magazines must have been considerably better in the pre-internet days. It's not like I can claim to be a life long supporter of any magazine but I'd hate to see them die out. Thankfully, in the case of Retro Gamer, they seem to be growing. There's an increase in demand from Americans to get hold this British magazine and they seem to pay a a fairly high amount to get it.

Is anyone else excited for Aliens: Colonial Marines? I'm a bit of a fan of the movies, and the game itself is looking awesome so far. Having drop-in, drop-out co-op campaign along with the various competitive modes sounds like it will have a shit-ton of fun to be had. It most definitely looks a lot better than that recent AvP game, so that's a good sign. Plus, it comes out on my birthday, so yaaay.

My copy of "1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die" arrived today and although I've still not had a proper look at it, I have skimmed though it and thought I'd let you guys know what I thought, since some of you seemed interested in it.

First off, I'd say don't think of this as an actual list of the 1001 best games ever. It's more like a catalogue of gaming history. There are going to be games you'd expect to be in here that aren't and then you're going to think "Wait, they have room for WWE Smackdown Vs Raw 2010 but they don't have room for the Star Ocean series?!" The book is also more focused on games from 2000 onwards. About Half of the book is games from 1970-2000 and the other half is games from 2000-2010. It is split into sections though, one for each decade.

At the front of the book you've got a big index that has all the games in alphabetical order. At the back of the books there's another sort of index that has developers in alphabetical order and then lists each of their games that are featured in the book. I suppose that can be handy because if you find a game in here that you're not familiar with but like the look of, you could always see if that developer has any other games featured in the book. I'm also pretty certain that you will come across games you're unfamiliar with. There are a lot of games in here that I hadn't heard of before and a lot of games I had heard of but didn't really know anything about.

I'd say it's definitely worth the £12 I spent on it though. It's a nice little catalogue of video games and it's the kind of thing that would make a perfect gift to any gamer who's interested in games from all eras. If someone gave me this as a Christmas gift for example, I'd be really happy to receive it. You could flick through this thing for hours, reading about some random games you've come across before. Plus, as someone who collects video games, it's just a nice book to have sitting on my shelf if I'm looking for ideas of what games to look out for.

Would you say that it seems better for nostalgia purposes or from what you've seen are there some games that seem to be hidden gems that you'd be interested in buying after reading about them?

I've definitely come across games that I wasn't aware of and would like to buy at some point. It is good for nostalgia too I guess. Think of it as a catalogue containing a selection of games from 1970 onwards. Most games have a screenshot to give you an idea of what it's like, followed by a description which is usually about half a page in length. There are some games that don't have a screenshot but the vast majority do. You'll probably spend most of your time looking at screenshots and then reading the descriptions that are next to the ones you like.

I'd say you'll definitely be able to flick through this and think "woah, that game looks cool I'm going to buy it!" It's more a novelty item than a reference, I guess. You'll find games, look at the screenshot, read the description and then want to go online to find out more about the game. The book doesn't contain a great deal of information about each game, but enough to give you an idea of whether or not you might like it.

I have been wondering, what systems actually count as retro these days?

I consider myself a bit of a retro gamer seeing as how even though I love my Xbox 360 I still play my SNES on a regular basis and still buy games for it online. I give any game a chance and don't care about how old it is and always jump at the chance to play arcade classics and the like. I am just wondering what exactly is "retro" now. If the N64 is retro then I feel old as hell.

I think each person will have their own idea of retro. A lot of people will just look at graphics and if they see something that's 8-bit or 16-bit, they'll call it retro. As for me, I pretty much consider anything that's pre-current generation to be retro. Although I guess I still don't consider the PS2 era to be retro but I'd consider PS1 to be pretty retro by now.

As for the N64, yes, I do consider that a retro console and I think most gamers will but it's odd that a lot of people are quick to claim that the PS1 isn't retro. Isn't the PS1 older? I assume people just dismiss it because it didn't use carts or something. IDK.

They also have one about books and albums. Those don't appeal as much to me but the books do seem like they'd be nice collectors items for anyone who's interested in that sort of thing. I'm hoping that by flicking through it I'll get inspiration to buy certain games I hadn't heard of or forgot existed.

Yeah that's what I would use it for too. Just flicking through it to see if there's any interesting games I've never heard of.

When I hear that I'm mostly thinking 8-bit 16-bit era and to some degree PS1 and N64, but I guess it's a very dynamic and loosely defined term.
