So Jack Tretton is stepping down. Its the end of an era considering jes been with playstation since the begining. Ill miss his speeches at e3. His smug smug face at last years was so amusing.
In other news im ready for infamous to drop. Asked for the day off for 3 days of solid gaming.
My wife lurks and has commented a couple times. She finds you guys amusing.
I thought this as well
I own it and am excited to play it. Especially after the demo. However ive been busy and thus relegated my playtime to games which are better for short bursts. Also i kinda want to wait for more costumes….butmay go ahead and start this weekend.
So i’ve been pondering lately. How important are little details to you guys in games. Games are getting more advanced as such more can be shown. A really good example of this is Final Fantasy XIV. Each material used in clothing has a different texture which is shown in great deal. The stitching is awesome. Then there are other things like the wind blowing makes the cloathing flutter in the appropriate direction.
They recently implemented clothing getting wet when it rains. This is afected by your location how heavy its raining and your cloathing material. How fast it dries up is also affects this. The other thing they added was the ability to see your breath as temperatures drop.
Dragon age inquisition will have little puddles forming when it rains.
Personally i get all giddy when i see little detaills like this. They dont affect gameplay much if at all but its these little details that help with immersion. I just find them really cool and am excited to get more stuff like this as generation 8 goes on.
I like others here am very happy to welcome you to the site. Cant wait to read your weekend articles.
I knew that bit. O havent actually read the comic yet though. Is it just the same story in comic form? I thought they would tell an expanded version or a slightly different bit.
Possibly. I have looked at some of the costumes and thought they looked better than others. But then there are others which just dont fit in. Oh well.
I know this wont happen while the MK people are handling it but a 2d animated DC fighting game would be cool.
I ended up doing a good bit with video games yhe last couple of nights. Played through Injustice. The story was good. The fighting was better than what i expected but i still found thaestetics to be rather ugly. Especially Wonder Woman who has really weird perportions and a face only a mother could love.
I tried out the Diablo 3 patch and think the game could possibly be good now. I didnt get to test all of it because i dont want to burn myself out before reaper of souls but i see definate potential.
Finally i played through Last of Us left behind. I really quite like it as it felt like a genuine interaction between two characters. But i also have a feeling that another medium would have better served to tell the story. I felt the conflict was thrown in to justify it being a game and teally just wanted to get back to the story. I still reccy though.
Your evil (or possibly good) twin
Got it simply for catan. 3 bucks is cheap too.
I find it interesting that they’re goingall current gen and foregoing pastgens completely. At least this is a sign that ythe industry is starting to let go and move forward.
Im sure you guys will get your own forum and fill it up just like when people really started getting into the first game.
This weekend I got to see Miyazaki’s last film (although I’m still holding out for that rumored Porco Rosso 2) The Wind Rises. I had to drive to Dallas proper to go see it but it was more than worth it.
I don’t know if the populous will enjoy it as it’s a very slow movie, but it’s quite beautiful. In fact I wouldn’t really recommend taking children to watch it as they would most likely just be bored throughout the majority of the film. But this is a film which follows a boys dream to build aircraft and the events that occur as he follows that dream. The art is amazing and I just loved it.
It’s a pretty sad movie with a sad ending which can be seen a mile away because of the historical connotations you can guess early on. After the movie I joked that if you want to continue being sad you can consider this as a prequel to Grave of the Fireflies and watch that afterwords.
I consider 3d platformers slightly different than 2d platformers. If they’re the collectathon like games of gen 5 i agree but if they’re more of a get from point ato point b i can see why a timer is implimented.
Even if its a generous timer like Mario? Do you dislike the time attack mode in these?
Im about to hit my one year anni next month. All i can say is enjoy the ride and dont sweat the small stuff.
Thanks for this list anyway there are a bunch of VC games i need to look into getting.
The shops and srevices will be unaffected. Its mostly multiplayer and ingame online functions
With Nintendo’s online infrastructure going down for the wii and ds, what are yhe most important things i should do asap? I think i did everything for dq9. I hear the frofessor layton games have puzzles only accessible online. What else?
Good morning all.
Last night i for some reason decided to test my memorization and reflex skills for some reason. Just got in the mood. So i pulled out 2009 Punch Out for the Wii. I did reasonably well. A couple fights did take me a few tries until I learned the moves. Well that was the case until I reached Mr. Sandman where. The ever loving shit was beaten out of me. I think i got maybe one punch in before i was knocked out.
Anyway its a fun game. Very aware of its roots. Sandman will be put to sleeptonight hopefully.
Eh. Its just fanfic for something people enjoy. No harm in that.
Just hating something that others enjoy isnt the best rout. Probably better to just ignore. Otherwise you become as bad as those that do the same with other stuff. Like COD or Nintendo haters
Tales of Symphonia today! I had completely forgotten i preordered the collectors edition version which seems hard to come by now. This is by far my fave Tales game. Might have something to do with it also being my first.
Love video game credits. It means you beat the main segment of the game.
Watched the Lego movie last night.
It was pretty cool I thoroughly enjoyed it. Especially that soundtrack “everything is awesome”
The ending was a little bit forced in but I kinda expected it with it being a kids movie and all.
I like starting out with S&S its slow but switching from defensive to offensive is so easy. Plus using items with weapon out is great.
