RE: Worst "lost my save" moment you've had
I NEVER played through Resident Evil 2, because my brother chose to delete my file because he needed a free slot for one of his ridiculous sports games...to this day RE2 is the only mainline Resident Evil game in existence (RE6 is nonexistent) that I haven't finished...
I'm a broken man, damned to relive this tragedy until my dying day.
Is there no hope? Are we all damned?
RE: Say Something Good About a Game You Otherwise Despise
I really don't despise any game, as long as it makes someone happy, I'm okay with it.
That being said, GTA V had graphics i guess...
RE: Game of Thrones Discussion [Spoilers]
@Fridge-man Agree with your assessment on R+L=J.
I think the implication with Arya was that her training was now done (she didn't walk away, she just stared at him holding up needle, saying "I'm not no one, I'm Arya of house Stark!" and then he smiled or something)....the books aren't that far along, but I don't know, all of this is weird and doesn't make a lot of sense, but that's just lazy writing. In general the last two seasons were a bit disappointing when it comes to the logic of the characters and their actions, but S06E09 and 10 were pretty amazing so i have not too many qualms with it.
Still, I can not wait for G.R.R.M. to finally deliver on Winds of Winter.
RE: Cool Cover Art Appreciation
Alone in the Dark 1 & 2
yeah..okay, 3 is cool as well
ahhhh...thes covers were my crack-cocaine when i was a kid...damn they still are! so inspiring!
Also, the cover for DOOM 2 is highly superior to DOOM's
Alos, also: Heroquest! while not a video-game, it's probably the best cover for anything ever...and it is a game, so...
hmmm, it's almost like there's a through-line there with my picks...I confess: I like (well) painted cover art!
RE: Game of Thrones Discussion [Spoilers]
@Art I'm pretty sure it's going to be Jamie as well...I'm also somehow totally sure that he will say something along the lines of "The things i do for love..." (don't know why though....) :)
what really bugs me though is R+L=J
the show seems to confirm this, but then again only through a cut to Jon. Why can't we just hear what Liana Stark is saying? Seems like misdirection, but she definitely says "HIM", so the baby is a boy. So it's not Daenerys, but the show hasn't given us Young Griff, so who else could it be if not Jon?
Also the show hasn't shown us the horn of winter (there was at least some talk about it though), and another horn that should be in Euron's possession...as the books are called "a SONG of Ice and Fire" I would assume that such instruments will play an important role in the story (I am aware that "song" means "poetical composition/poetry" especially in the context of epic literature, but the appearance of two opposed magical instruments within the story also speaks to the title's intertextual meaning...).
Also: will we ever see Asshai? It seems like such an interesting place, but with Daenerys well on her way to Westeros the chances seem slim (maybe Euron will go there for his horn? pretty please?).
RE: Your Top 3 Favourite Games
I don't even know where to start with this one...i just love the arcade-y look of it, it improved on the first one in lots of ways (skipping wait-times is a big one),the score is one of the best of all time (IMHO at least), the characters (weird and cheesy but also with a solid emotional core). what impressed me most though is the world-design: where in Shenmue 1 Ryo's hometown Dobuita was very easy to familiarise with, Hongkong seems impenetrable (played it a lot and I'm still not sure which quarter connects to which quarter through which path. you feel a bit lost in this huge metropolis and there's allways something new to find), every NPC has a clear function apart from just filling the world with a mass of window-dressing (shopkeepers know where to find people, pedestrians lead you to places, etc), the quicktime events (and i hate QTE's) put you through the same things (in an abstract way) Ryo is challenged with - they feel meaningful. I haven't even mentioned Kowloon or Guilin...LOVE this game!
Final Fantasy IX
The systems alone would be enough to boost this into my top 10, but the characters and the world they inhabit push it over the edge. If Shenmue 2 didn't exist, there would be no debate about what my favourite game of all time would be. Love the towns, love the overworld map. 10/10
Syphon Filter 2
I'm honestly not even so sure about this one (some days i like MGS1 more), but SF2 is probably one of the most beautiful memories i have of my favourite console generation ever. When i think of PSX/PS1 i think of Syphon Filter 2. just all around great level design (and it starts with a bang..rocky mountains..the tunnels and the bridge..oh baby!!!), the awkward but endearing running animation of Gabe Logan, the TASER (oh my dog the taser <3)....Action-Stealth PERFECTION!
