Today I beat Intrusion 2 and Sword & Sworcery EP. Sworcery was alright, but Intrusion is a fucking genius masterpiece that everyone should play.

After googling around a bit it seems the guy (Michael Beer, from gametrailers?) has been constantly insulting Phil and John Blow after they dissed game journalism in general after e3. Small time celebrity drama sure is fun huh.

Every time I've heard Phil Fish's name its because he did something dickish though. Insulting people for wanting to play his game and the like. Glad I never bought Fez.

He's featured quite heavily on Indie Game: The Movie and he came across as a massive twat in that.

I have a question about Dragon's Dogma. How do I know who has become my love interest when doing Deny Salvation? I just saw on YouTube the cutscene where the dragon flies off and I had heard he carries away your love interest, but I didn't see anyone.

So how do I know? I made sure to lower the affinity of everyone I could think of, but I'm not sure if I got everyone. I maxed out Mercedes' affinity before she was taken out of the game world. That's who I'm going for.

So just now, about 2 maybe 3 hours into a Civ: V match with Kunera, where I was slowly working us towards a cultural victory for the first time ever. I'm pumped up to like 200+ Culture per turn, We've not really fought with anyone and we've put some serious effort in.

Fuckin' Steam goes down.

God. Fucking. Dammit.

Never mind the fact that it was literally right when I sent some troops all the way across the ocean to help you deal with Egypt. We're retarded and need to save more often.

Bioshock Infinite DLC was just announced and I won't be able to play it because 2K took my fucking game out of my Steam library. I bought it off some dude on Reddit, so I guess he must have gotten the code in some shady way. But without warning, without giving me any hint that it was happening, 2K took away the game from me.

I'm just about to do this quest, probably tonight. Does anybody know? I think Mercedes is the only person other than Aelinore who has gotten that pink aura, but I dunno how many people could have had that chime that happens when you talk to them cuz I tend to play with the volume low while listening to Jay and Silent Bob Get Old (I pause the podcast and turn up the volume when something is happening). I only just noticed this past weekend that Caxton had it. I did the sheath/unsheath method on everyone I could think of so far except Ser Maximillian because I haven't yet gotten to him. I'll be sure to get to him, though. But I can't seem to do this to Fournival when he's sitting at his table. I hope I can find him standing up.

Try to find the person you want it to be or think it is. If Grigori has taken them they won't be where they are supposed to be.

Well, Mercedes is already taken out of the game world when you complete Pride Before a Fall, so that's out for me. Unless she's supposed to come back at some point?

Not unless she is your Beloved, so I guess if that's who you're after you can't really tell until you go fight Grigori.

Steam sure knows how to get money out of me. Yesterday Fallout 3 and New Vegas were at 75% off and despite owning both on Xbox 360 I decided I wanted to get PC copies. Turned out to be worth it though because I never really enjoyed New Vegas when I was playing it on Xbox but for some reason I'm loving it on PC. It just handles better or something. I don't know.

Now Steam has put the Elder Scrolls series on sale. I don't have any interest in getting Skyrim on Steam (too expensive and probably requires a better PC than mine anyway) but Morrowind and Oblivion are tempting me. I've been wanting to play the Oblivion DLC for years but it was always so expensive on Xbox. Already have a physical copy of the Morrowind GOTYE but even still I'm tempted to get it on Steam. Means I don't have to bother about discs.

The Steam summer sale kinda got me interested in PC gaming after I realised that my laptop, which only has Intel HD 3000 graphics, can actually handle more advanced games than I thought. I know Fallout 3 and New Vegas are a few years old now but I didn't actually think Intel graphics would be up to playing big games like those. Kinda weird how old games that I already own on Xbox 360 are making me want to become more of a PC gamer...

I'm not sure if it's anything to do with the console you played it on, maybe it just seems like a change from Fallout 3 that you didn't welcome at first? That's what it was like for me and I've only played it on the Xbox 360. That said, I still prefer 3...

I'm starting to think that it's because in my previous attempts to play New Vegas, I was playing it just so that I could say I've beaten it. Let me explain some more. I have hundreds of video games sitting on a shelf behind me and every time I want to play a new game it takes me forever to settle on something because there are so many games I want to play. So usually I start a game all enthusiastically but after a while I find myself rushing so that I can move on to something else. I ended up doing that with New Vegas originally but Fallout games aren't the kind of games that you can rush through and enjoy, in my opinion. You need to spend some time playing them and take in all that there is to offer. That's what I'm doing this time and enjoying it a lot more.

*Some New Vegas spoilers, kinda*

Still don't really care much for the "who will you side with" part of the story. I can't decide if I want to side with the NCR, Mr. House or go independent. Usually I'd like that kind of decision because it makes me think but in this case there is no obvious option for me. I can't decide which would be, in my opinion, the best option. Right now I'm more inclined to side with Mr. House or go independent.

That's something that got to me a bit too about the game, I found it a lot harder to care. In 3, the one option always seemed like a good option regardless of the fact that you had to do it. In NV, there are so many negatives and so many positives that it's a lot harder to choose. I like having something to think about in my video games, but I don't like how politically focused the majority of the game is. I'd rather be off quests like helping out Marcus, screwing around in Black Mountain and such.

Have a boatload of shit to do, so gonna keep this brief. I had previously stated in several threads I was excited for Zelda A Link Between Worlds (LTTP2) and just wanted to publicly retract my interest. The producer Aonuma, had outright admitted that they copy pasted the same world rather than starting fresh so it could be developed faster. (I don't have a link but Google is your friend, I'm not talking out of my ass) The artstyle is generic and an outright disgrace to the original. Boss AI, patterns and strategy to overcome are way too similar and now that the dust has settled, I've had time to really watch some gameplay and read interviews and it's shaping up to be a cash in on peoples' love for the SNES classic.

Pretty much a shitty, watered down remake/whatever the fuck. Uninspiring and pathetic. Don't be deceived and buy into the hype/name. Don't buy this game.

Tell me how this is acceptable and worth your hard earned money, please.

I can't help but feel this way about a lot of Nintendo's "remakes" nowadays. I guess because I'm not much of a Nintendo fan anymore. When I see that they're selling Ocarian of Time again on the 3DS (but in 3D!!) and they're selling the original on the virtual console at the same time, I can't help but feel that's a bit iffy. The only time I've ever bought a remake or revamp like that was Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and that was only because at that point I had never owned the original and also wanted to experience the online co-op. I completely agree with what you said though about the LTTP remake though, the original sprite version seems to have a lot more depth and style.

Even just comparing those screenshots, the original look way better than the remake. I still haven't played A Link to the Past yet though. I don't have a SNES so I think my only option is to pick up a GBA copy that I can play through my GameCube. Unfortunately, not the asking price for that game is a little more than I'm willing to pay.

From the video, I can see the animation is much more fluent and they added cool effects and everything. However, the art style itself looks horrible. It's generic indeed and doesn't contain much detail. The SNES version, which is 20 years older, actually looks better. That's just unforgivable in my opinion.

And yeah, if it's almost exactly the same game I see no reason to buy it.

The art style in those textures seems to be a little lazier,flat and botched compared to the original on the right Though I do like the layout a little better then on the right because it's less cluttered up

It looks pretty poor, it has to be said. A Link to the Past is one of those Zelda games that never really interested me, so I wasn't overly hyped as it was, but now I'm even less so.

Cleared Inferno on Dragon's Crown, gonna shelf it for the time being. Considered typing up a full review, but nah, changed my mind. Moving onto Legend of Dragoon (PSN) and finishing up Alundra. Last time I played this game was 2003. Memory lane...

Basically still bull rushing my backlog of games while I have an enormous amount of free time, the clock is winding down. Next spring onward I won't have much time for video games anymore and it hurts.

Lol. Poor guy has probably been stuck on 800x600 for years. I remember when I first got my Xbox 360 we didn't have a HDTV and I wasn't expecting there to be too much of a difference back then, but when I finally got my HDTV it was amazing. The rank icons on COD4 actually looked like something other than a blob of random colours. It was amazing.

Not exactly gaming related, but it affects my gaming..

Here at home my internet is $60/m for 5mbps down and a 30GB bandwidth cap (ours is broken so we have unlimited. haven't told the company, why would we?). Now that I'm going away to college I have more options where I live and for $55/m I'll have 45mbps down and a 300GB limit. Now compare that to Google Fiber... 5mbps with no limit for FREE. 1gbps with no limit for $70/m.

So I was just wondering, what sort of speeds do you guys get. Here I am so excited to be getting 45mbps, when people out there have more than 20x faster speeds.

Howdy, y'all. I decided to start playing a classic game I've heard about but knew nothing about. Snatcher, aka the game Kojima made before Metal Gear Solid. It's pretty fun and is really testing my knowledge of Japanese listening as there are no subtitles.

Also Metal Gear Mk. II makes his first appearance!

I'm about 2 hours in right now, and I'd recommend you play this if you dig classic artistic graphics in a cyberpunk/noir setting. I believe there is an English version on the PS1 as well.
