Gaming Discussion / Re: Games With Good Voice Acting
« on: August 13, 2013, 03:23:26 am »
We barely broke past one page and already someone dropped one of these.

By the way, what's Bloodlines?

I second Kain, though I mostly only remember Kain himself from the first game. Soul Reaver was pretty decent, too.

That said, voice acting has gotten better by leaps and bounds in the last ten or so years, once people realised it was actually important. Most of the time, it's purely an aesthetic choice, now. I'm still happy when they give me my Japanese voice tracks, if only because I've become rather fond of certain actors.

The less we mention Chaos Wars, the better.

I'm surprised no-one mentioned Bloodlines.

I'm in that boat: There are four or five Wii games I'm interested in, but I don't want to buy a Wii for. I have the money. I even have the space. I still don't want to buy one, though. I'd personally prefer they came out for PC, but that'll never happen.

At the current juncture, I'm not going to be buying any of the consoles, until something I MUST have arrives. Most of the really interesting stuff is coming to PC either exclusively or as well, so I'm content to stay there. (Watch Dogs, Remember Me, Cyberpunk, Shadowrun Returns, etc.)

Hah.  Better than using Tomb Raider, like I did.

By the way, look into Free McBoot.  I think Gid was the one that pointed it out to me (and if it wasn't, I'm sorry!), and it makes it where you don't even have to have a trigger disc.

Yeah, I know, but lazy.

I've got two copies of LoD, the greatest hits, and the original, without a doubt some of the best looking disk of all time. I'm sure like many people here, I've pretty much got every Square greatest hits release for the Playstation. Games I'd like to add to my mini-collection are Breath of Fire 3, and 4, and a copy of Valkyrie Profile.

Also not to derail the thread, but as I've said many times, I think Legend of Dragoon is one of the most underrated RPGs of all time.

Huh. I use LoD disc 2 to boot the memory card exploit, so it sits in my ps2 permanently.

About as hardcore as you can get with that idea in mind.

All shoot-em-ups: Seems the formula is the same in every one of them...avoid being hit by anything that moves, shoot at anything that moves and never stop holding the button down. The problem here being that there's no real strategy. You just keep mashing the fire button because you're not really given any reason not to and every reason to do so. Wouldn't it be nice if these types of games gave you a strategic, sound reason to STOP firing once in a while? :)

Suicide bullets.

Play something a little newer, there's lots of shmups that either give you more options, or outright penalise haphazard firing.

Meh? I enjoyed it.

I think my most basic idea is to try to discern when I'm playing a game to kill time, or playing a game because I honestly can't-imagine-not-playing-the-game-oh-my-god-what-happens-next-is-that-a-sandworm-with-a-kitten's-face-exploding-from-the-cloaca-of-satan?

And then try to play less of the first, and more of the second. I generally think I play a lot of rather bad games, simply because they're there, and they're easy to digest. Then I never have any time for anything, and always feel overwhelmed.

I can imagine playing that in high res in Dolphin would be a treat.

It was. And worked pretty well. There was a little weirdness with the water, mainly the way it didn't draw things in the right place when you crested the top of the surface. Since you spent almost all of your time submerged, it never really bothered me.

The best game on Wii is Endless Ocean 2: Adventures of the Deep.

It's also not even much of a game. I still sunk so goddamn much time into playing it on Dolphin, you just don't know. I wish someone would make a HD version of that sort of idea. Hell, GoogleMaps? Let me scuba dive in GoogleEarth. I'd do that for hours, if they seeded it with some sort of random objective.

Which is basically what EO2 was. No challenge at all, pretty much just peaceful, delightful exploration of something we as a species haven't really explored much of. Even when you got attached by sharks, all that happened was you'd get whacked by their tail, and lose some air.

Steam works because it's a categorizer, a store, inbuilt networking, social and patching platform all in one. I'm not much of a social player, but there's something  to be said about logging in and seeing someone playing Torchlight 2, and thinking "Hey, that actually sounds fun right now." And being able to jump right into the game from there. (Ease of jumping depends on the game, of course.)

It's also the best of a bad world. Yes, there can be DRM. No, it's not mandatory. Steamworks is hardly even the worst offender. I like it for the integration, and the fact that to have access to all of my PC games, I have a single thing on my task bar to click. Rather than having to either a: dig through many terabytes of hdd space or b: spend hours setting up shortcuts to every game I have installed. And I have-- according to Steam alone and not anything not affiliated with it--  193 games installed.

It's the PC equivalent of a console, I suppose. I don't have to faff about with setting things up, watching for patches, either cracking the game or finding the disc, trying to organise multiplayer with friends. It's all kind of there. GOG is great, yeah, but Steam is hardly bad. Also, I like me some AA and AAA games, and GOG doesn't really get involved with those.

For someone that likes to game in a bubble, most of that is pointless, sure. I don't, though. Even if I'm playing a single player game, I enjoy having access to things like the steam overlay. I've got a massive case of gamer ADHD, I'll freely admit.

Gaming Discussion / Re: The Phantasy Star 2 "easy" patch
« on: May 25, 2012, 06:14:09 am »
back on topic... SCREW calling it the "easy patch" it should be called the "Phantasy Star 2 Kai" patch. Since it basically cuts down all the filler battles.

Damn! I'm glad you took the trouble to say that twice, or I'd have missed how snappy a quip that was. I especially like the way you realised that most people aren't going to get the reference, so you explained it. Except not really. I'm truly in awe. I think I also have to be in purple, is that the new rule?

All I can think of is Metallica. Uhm. Yeah.

For those wondering, this is available on Phantasy Star Cave now, just google to find that site, since I'm not sure if I can link it here.

My god, that site is painful to navigate.

You are a creepy, creepy little fucker.

He just wants to whip Fairuza Balk until she moans, shudders and disappears. Nothing creepy about that. At all. Yes. >_>

Even if this case, Sammy is basically saying "come back here idiot", just using the term may, "MAY", upset the person.

Oh no, sorry Mister Two P. I didn't mean to call you a bastard. Would you like to talk about it?

I have a friend who is one and it's not very nice calling him that, even in a jokey way.

If you're going to edit out context, you might want to remove at least this line. You're basically calling your friend an idiot. :p
Which isn't very nice, but hey, we all do it.

Bastard doesn't mean child sans father, it means a child born out of wedlock. Quite a few bastards in this world, as a matter of fact.
