  1. Just saw Underworld: Awakening. Story was not bad, execution was too hasty. It felt like it wanted to get as much action into the screen as possible to keep people entertained, and lost lots of the potential moments to input lore and story into this budding series. Action was awesome, though. 7/10
  2. Well, so far, we know some basics: 1) It is in Skyrim, the snowy northern continent of the Nords. 2) The main character is or is associated with someone known as "The Dragonborn". 3) DRAGON(S). Now, all we need to know is what skills there will be this time, if they plan on using that stupid cookie-cutter dungeon maker again (I hope they make each place SOMEWHAT unique, like they did for Fallout 3), the major cities, and the plot.
  3. It sucked. The new one though, Sonic Colors (at least on the DS), is pretty fun, and kicks Sonic Rush in the face, big time. Come to think of it, Sonic 4 was also not bad... I think SEGA is starting to get their act together and is starting to make decent Sonic games again... I don't know if I should be overjoyed, or scared...

    Gold lasts as long as Wood for weapons, tools, and armor. The only thing Gold is good for is making gold buildings, to look like a rich bugger, or to recreate the gold palace from Final Fantasy III. Suddenly, I want to make a gold palace that even Goldor would be jealous of. All in favor?
  5. Excuse me, I must change my pants now. [changes pants] ...I AM EXCITED. Thank you.
  6. The latter would fall into the previous category - games that catered to their personal tastes.I daresay this thread wouldn't have been started to ask which game got the most sales. That information is factual - it could easily be looked up and there would be no reason to start a poll about it. So, by process of elimination, it's about individual opinions. But the OP asks "Which games define this generation", which means which games had the largest impact on the general public. This then makes us have to look at which games sold the most copies in that time frame, pick the top [X] games from that list, and then decide which ones affected the general public the most. This is why I said OP needed to do a little editing to his initial post to better clarify what he intended. Now, let's assume the OP stated "which game do you enjoy from the last decade had the biggest impact on you", and we have ourselves what I think the OP was trying to get off.
  7. What about Bioware? Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 were outstanding titles, as well as Dragon Age: Origins. Hell, I still go back and play DA:O from time to time, try out new means of play. I'm putting forward DA:O as a fantastic RPG here. The problem though with this thread is that it's asking which games are the best of the decade 2000-2009, which requires looking into sales. The game that sold the most in that time frame was CoD:MW2, and no one can deny that. So, OP needs a bit of editing to better suit the meaning, because clearly everyone has a little difficulty deciding on if they should put the best game made for them, or for sales/innovation.
  8. Armored gloves should just count as fist weapons. Wouldn't being smacked in the face by a spiked Daedra gauntlet hurt? I'd think so. They should, but they don't. They only act as a medium to know if you are going to do damage to ghosts or not by being enchanted or not. I enjoyed my mage, with no armor skill. Why waste a skill I can use on another school of magic?
  9. ... yeah, Elsweyr would rock... You know what? I tried doing fist fighting on Oblivion. It got stupid after a while, where I couldn't enchant my gloves to do MORE DAMAGE upon swinging, oh no. No, instead, they can only be enchanted to bolster your defense or some stats in some manner, but they needed to be enchanted to do ANY damage to monsters immune to normal weapons (high-level daedra, ghosts, etc.), making these enemies pointless to fight, even after 100+ fist fighting, because they just barely feel it, or regenerate at a rate that makes the fight last waaay too long. So, brass knuckles (or just any fist-weapon) please?
  10. Anything I haven't played yet. Yes, I want to play that really crappy Truck racing game ("Big Rigs Off Road" or something like that). Yes, I want to play all the Barbie and Tinkerbell games. Yes, I want to play E.T on the Atari 2600 (ouch). Until I play it, I cannot say how bad it is with honesty (or good, for that matter). There is no greater experience than personal experience, and until I have played it, I'll keep it in mind as a game to play.
  11. The location I'm assuming is going to be the Summerset Isles, mainly because of how much they reference them and their current woes in Oblivion. The clothing and speech mannerisms are all area and race dependent, as well as clothing. Example Morrowind was a muddy location surrounding a giant volcano housing a demi-god, a plague, and zombies (technically), so that location is gonna have rough words, sturdy yet non-fashionable attire (on the majority), and strong, enduring people. Cyrodil is the main capital and central hub point for all the races, so it mixes everything up into one type of environment. Summerset is home of the high elves, who are highly sophisticated and eloquent, so Summerset would probably have a larger assortment of "fashion", more detailed carvings and runes in armor and weapons, and the people probably talk like a bunch of rich people who are so full of themselves, the only things left in their head is ego.
  12. If they add multiplayer, they better get it done right, or not done at all. I don't want to sit through a game of multiplayer that sucks, and the rest of the game is not that great because they spent so much time on getting the multiplayer working. That kind of nonsense killed so many games that had potential, like Fable II. So, if they add Multiplayer, they need to set it up like Diablo II in terms of gameplay and questing; one person makes a room, and all main storyline quests run off of them, but side-quests are per person, room has a limit to number of people in it. At least this way they can add HUGE enemies like dragons and giant ogres that demand cooperation, and serve for some awesome game-play.
  13. I think you should rent it first, as it's a hit or miss for people. I personally love Fable III and still play it from time to time just to finish off that last 10 achievements, and still enjoy the storyline and gameplay. The maps are what they SHOULD have been, as well as the multiplayer, for Fable II, magic works great in it, and JOHN CLEESE is your butler, Jasper. JOHN. CLEESE. Only gripe I have with it is the 2 achievements for marrying another player over LIVE, and having a kid with them. So many jokes and remarks come from it when you have a bunch of friends who are extremely homophobic, considering it's just a game, who cares.
  14. It's open beta dude, it's not gonna be the best zombie mmorpg ever Exactly, Beta, not Alpha. In the alpha, it's completely acceptable to have no story, no proper leveling, etc., but in Beta, it means they got at least half of it done, and are mostly fixing it, polishing it, and adding small bits of content. Sorry, but without a story outside of "There was a zombie outbreak, the city is screwed, go kill zombies now with other people", maybe some things that tell you how it happened, what caused it, how to fix it, etc, or possibly something new (MMO is not really "new"), it's just another Zombie survival game that fits in with the rest of them, boring after 5 minutes.
  15. That was the point of the ending, it was designed as a way to tell people that without lots of time and hard work, you cannot keep all the promises you make, that sometimes you might have to make bad decisions for the greater good. Call it a hash of an educational method, but it still should get the point across. Also, the character customization in this one was about the same, save for spells being done a bit different (although leveling up magic so you can get to higher level spells faster was done better than Fable II), although the clothes selection was a tad bit better (my main guy looked like the Burger King, apparently), and the Weapons I liked more in Fable III, since the augmentation idea was rather crummy with the poor selection of augments you could collect, seeing after silver, fire, and shock augments, everything else tended to boast a good and a bad effect that half of them canceled each-other out, filling the weapon with useless gems.

    Minecraft

    Anyone else catch themselves setting obscure goals in this game? So far I managed to set up 4 goals. 1) Make a portal to The Nether (check) 2) Make an Island fortress (check) 3) Make something very confusing, yet works with Red Powder 4) Make a believable floating city Seeing as 2 goals were reached and achieved yesterday, a floating city is probably the next thing on my agenda for this game.
  17. Idea = awesome. practice = shaky. Every time I see "MMO" I automatically want to put "RPG" afterward, and then get met with disappointment, like I did then. I'm not saying the game is bad, I'm just saying being able to level up and unlock new weapons/skills/talents/etc. or possibly go through some storyline would allow for more gameplay than just "HERE'S A BUNCH OF ZOMBIES, GO KILL THEM WITH OTHER PEOPLE".
  18. As much as it was one of my favorite Mario games as well, it was done by Square Enix and not Nintendo, so technically doesn't count, which makes me sad. Since I cannot say that game was the best ever, I'll agree with Super Mario World, although I will point out that Yoshi's Island (if it could count) was also a fantastic game, with the only annoyance being Baby Mario, and his incessant crying that just drove you mad.
  19. I haven't exceeded more than 2 a character outside of Autosave, ever, and even then I got a good 200+ hours killed with it, same for it's predecessor TES III: Morrowind (also made by Bethesda). Funny thing, I always played the longest as a Dark Elf in III and as a Breton in IV, I wonder what race I'd be making this time around that just keeps me going? Plus, that's an entire page of pure speculation and wishful thinking so far, that link. Until they announce something, we will just have to wait patiently until Bethesda decides to tell us about it. While talking about speculation, which continent do you guys think this one will take place on? Will it still be in Cyrodil, or will they move to another one, such as Valenwood or High Rock? Personally the way the NPCs in TES IV talked about the High Elf homeland of Summerset Isles having recent Daedra issues, I think it will end up there, but who knows?
  20. One of these debates? Really? Honestly, no console is better than any other. It's all purely up to personal tastes and interests. Speaking as an owner of all the systems, my PS3 has not been given the attention it wants, because the 360 keeps getting games I like that the PS3 doesn't always have, like Fable III or Halo: Reach. Yes, I love Halo, no I'm not a fanboy drooling over it and saying everything else is garbage (frankly, more of those kinds of people are migrating to the PS3 with CoD), I just like the game, and many more. I mean, FPS's are not even my most favorite game genre, RPG's are. I just love how so many of you guys just bash all these decent games just because it's popular and/or "unoriginal". More of you have been stating the number of exclusive titles for each system, and say that the 360 is dominated by FPS games. I'd like to flip that around and say the PS3 is dominated by FPS games, whereas the 360 has a lot more variety. I work in retail with the systems, and own them, I can say that there is definitely not as many FPS, sports, and GTA clone games on the 360 compared to the PS3. Going through my games for the 360, I got... This list has every 360 Halo game, CoD6, BF:BC2, GoW, the Orange Box, L4D, and Borderlands in that list. I have no sports games, for rather simple reasons, and only have 1 racing game because I don't like realistic driving, I like driving with madness (a la Mario Kart or Burnout 3). So, this does show that the 360 has quite a number of titles that are not shooters, so please stop saying the 360 has nothing but shooters, it makes it sound like you're trying to blend in with everyone who doesn't know what they're talking about.
  21. That the mission with Jun at night? If so, I love that mission. Then again, I am a sniper. BOOM! HEADSHOT! Being a good sniper doesnt really help you on that mission. Most elites aren't killed by a single headshot (On legendary) and by the time you headshot them once, they move out of the way and recover all their shield. (The gold elite's shield doesn't even get depleted when you headshot them.) Unless you are fast enough. A Gold Elite takes 3 shots if all hit the head (critical damage spot),red 2, Blue 1, and White varies, depending on if they are the Rangers or Spec Ops ones, as Rangers obviously have less shield and health. Either way, I got through that mission with only 2-3 deaths on Legendary solo. It's not that hard when they give you a sniper right off the bat with what? 60 shots or some stupid number like that? So, yeah, being a good sniper can help. It doesn't hurt to be a good player as well (I'm normally pretty good at Halo Campaign, online I'm above average but nowhere near pro, Firefight varies and depends on if my internet wants to be stupid).
  22. This game has offered me fun, and fun I am definitely having (yes, innuendo implied). Magic? Awesome. Combining some gauntlets can be pretty lame in comparison to what one might want, but ANYTHING combined with vortex works so wonderfully. Combat? Really fun. I hate how I don't have a health bar, and have to rely on the red tinge framing getting more red a la CoD, making it so I don't know my "breaking point" (I'm not risking it either because of that achievement), but the combos I'm getting with my hammer are really flashy, and cool. Storyline? May not be 100% original right now for me, but it's still has me entertained and absorbed into it. I love how Jasper's voice is done by John Cleese, probably Britain's funniest man alive (if you don't know who John Cleese is, he's one of the bigger names of Monty Python). And, of course, like the previous installments, the little bits here and there for comedy just make me roar with laughter at points. I love my comedy, and there are many points were it just jumps out at you, and tickles you just right.
  23. What's Arean? I don't recall what Arean is in Castle Crashers. I mean, I've heard of Arena, but not Arean...
