Site Talk / Re: Rule 2 needs to change a bit.

FWIW, after taking a look over my post in that thread, considering it was locked and all... I asked DarkSol to warn me and he did. I earned it.

WA3 has a pretty good combat system.

Too bad the plot and art direction are so bland you get bored with it after a while.

You really should use earphones, even cheap ass earbuds, with the handheld consoles anyway. they all have terrible speakers.

Don't ask him about Minstrel Show: The RPG please. Please. It's the most horribly racist NES game ever and I'm sure most would rather forget it exists.

You can shut the 3D off on both 3DS models, JCE.

Also, I bet ten to one that within three years the 2DS will be 100 bucks or cheaper.

As a cost cutting measure, there's actually a gigantic fucking screen underneath the case, which we only see two portions of.

Apparently it was cheaper to do that and firmware trickery than two screens. Who'da thought? http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/08/28/nintendo-2ds-has-one-big-screen-divided-by-plastic

He said complete. To me that implies no country restrictions.

No-Intro is the name of the game here, DarknessSavior.

So wait, you haven't beaten any RPG, or any RPG without having knowledge of it first? Bit confused, your wording wasn't all that clear.

AS for game design? The first disc of Xenogears(Which is big enough and has enough to be considered its own game), FF10, XenoSaga 1 and 3(2 is an utter shit game and 3 has the worst writing I've seen in a jRPG to date, even worse than the two DS Tales of games i beta'd, but 3 if you look at it from a gameplay standard is an incredible game. It's just plain fun), Ys: Oath in Felghana(Though that is an action RPG).

Edit: Oh I am a dumbfuck I forgot BOF4. I feel BOF3 is overall the superior game, but BOF4 has the best gameplay of the series.

I think they were more strict on the PS3, but on the PS2 it was not that uncommon for a big name title to have a minor or not so minor but not heug thing let go. One out of every ten or twenty or some number of games had some requirement waved for them because it made more financial sense to sony.

And then you have Microsoft relaxing their standards for the X360,. At first some form of AA was mandated for each game. You can tell how that went. :P

More than one dev on Beyond3d.com has mentioned Sony let those requirements go from time to time...

I agree. The problem is that the clock rate of processors have stopped to rise in the last 10 years. To emulate a system without slowing down it is absolutely nessesary to have a clock of ~10-100 times faster than the original. Parallelism is absolutely useless as you can't emulate processor instructions before another instruction has finished.

It could be possible to do some kind of "high level emulation" of the graphics, so there would be no need to emulate GPUs accurately, but then it's never going to look the same as the original game.

You do realize that parallelism will be needed for current and future consoles because of the fact that they're all multicore, right? In addition, clockspeed doesn't matter nearly as much as you think it does. There's also performance per clock, which is insanely important and why Intel is dominating over AMD right now despite having a lower clockspeed.

Also HLE for graphics will produce fewer and fewer differences as times goes on due to the emulation improving and the original games looking better as times goes by.

Really your entire post is hioghly misinformed and stuck in the early 2000s era of common emulation/pc hardware misinformation

IIRC the original Taito type X2 didn't have that much anti-piracy protection. Blazblue 1 was fairly easily cracked to run on standard PCs, for example.

You see, the Taitos run Windows.

ePSXe recently got an update which massively improved it. It finally gets the sound on Xenogears right. First emulator i've ever seen do that.

There's also no$psx, but I've been told it's not all that usable, just a good hacking emulator.

Dawn of War II + various add-ons:

In total 361 hours (according to Steam).

I'll check my /played next time I'm in Star Trek Online, though I'll probably regret it.

well it's an MMO, what do you expect.

Too bad Kingcom/KC and Gemini would never be able to fly out of Europe to attend this. It'd be awesome.

Well if this has become the "my dick is bigger because I've spent a crapload of hours into a game" thread, BRPXQZME all I can say is bitch please

My killing floor hours are up to 389, and I've spent 325 in Borderlands 1, and 244 in its sequel.

If I knew how to crop and stitch together photos i'd provide proof. DAMN MY LACK OF SOFTWARE SKILLZ

this also isn't countign the 1000+ i've spent in Diablo 2 aka MMO Lite: The Game. If it was an actual MMO I'd likely have no life at this point.

ps BRPXQZME i love you don't hate me
