Re: 2011 Community GOTY

This has been a great year for video games. Best of this generation, probably.

My nominations:

1) Dark Souls. GOTY, no question. I've spent about 80 hours on this game total, about 50 hours on...

Re: 3DS: "I haven't sold a single one"

I was on the fence regarding 3DS until I learned that Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars was designed by Julian Gollop, creator of X-Com and Laser Squad. So I bought the 3DS on a whim along with Ghost Recon...

Re: Suggest a PC videogame.

System Shock 2. It's one of my favorite PC games of all time. It's the inspiration for a more recently released game called Bioshock, but in my opinion it is far superior. I just played and beat...

Re: Retro Duo Twin NES and SNES Console

I own the RetroDuo NES/SNES model (there's also one that plays NES/Genesis, though curiously an SMS/Genesis model does not exist). I recommend it. Not only does it have S-Video inputs, but it plays...

Re: Left 4 Dead Review

Someday Gamecritics will find a critic who understands and appreciates multiplayer gaming, and treats it on a level somewhere above utter contempt.

Re: I'm a recession layoff

My sympathies, Gene. I got laid off in October right after the i-banks collapsed. Bad times all 'round.

Re: Borrowing a PSP and a Big Ol' Stack of Games

whaaaaaat? Gradius Collection is worth full price for Gradius Gaiden alone. Gradius II is great, also.

Hardly "middling".

Re: Killzone 2, at last something good comes out of Holland

Isn't Io Interactive based in Holland? The Hitman series and Freedom Fighters were pretty amazing.

(Kane and Lynch...not so much)

EDIT: ach, never mind. They're Danish.

Re: A sad day in gaming history

Actually it started several years earlier than that, around 1987, if you want to count Electronic Game Player magazine. EGP was a quarterly magazine founded by Steve Harris, who later founded EGM.

Re: Mirror's Edge: Most Criminally Underappreciated Game of 2008

Here's an update for the fence sitters: EA just unlocked the time trial portions of the demo. It used to be open only to people who preordered the game, but now you can simply type any 16-digit code...

Re: pc gaming

Depends on what you're looking for.

If you're buying a "pre-built" desktop, you won't need a CPU. If you're building one yourself, a dual-core Intel CPU like this one...

Mirror's Edge: Most Criminally Underappreciated Game of 2008

I don't see any love for Mirror's Edge on this board, and to be honest, I'm not surprised. It's received about as many negative reviews as positive ones, and its sales have suffered as a result. ...

Re: Is Sony Sabatoging the PS3?

Blu-Ray is going to be a bust this generation. Digital downloading and services such as Netflix streaming video are the wave of the future. I agree that Sony has hitched their wagon to the wrong...

Re: Bravo EA! Dead Space is anything but.

To that point, I always found it odd that in Fallout 3, in the midst of combat, I was able to repair four hunting rifles, swallow a filet of Yao Guai meat, take off my utility jumpsuit, put on my...

Re: Fallout 3 quick impressions

Fast travel to Mall Northwest Metro Station (this is where the waypoint on the map takes you) and wait about 12-15 hours (press "T" or whatever the analogue is on console). Also, be sure to tell...

Re: Fallout 3 quick impressions

The key to sniping is sneak attack criticals. Take advantage of the scope and aim at the head while hidden in Sneak mode. If you've got a decent Small Guns skill, you'll one-shot your target just...

Re: Fallout 3 quick impressions

I don't think you can pin someone's entire body to the wall, but I've pinned individual limbs to walls. The Railway Rifle's greatest strength lies in its extremely high cripple percentage. One shot...

Re: Fallout 3 quick impressions

A perfectly reasonable choice, but you have to expect consequences. When you choose to focus in energy weapons over small guns, you forego an early advantage for a late-game payoff.

In all...

Re: Fallout 3 quick impressions

I've played the game for 65 hours or so, and finished the main quest. Keep in mind I'm approaching this game as a Fallout veteran, never having touched any of the Elder Scrolls games. Although I...

Re: Fallout 3 quick impressions

There's no way that I know of. If you want purified water, ask your personal robot butler for some (the one you get in Megaton). The food sanitizer does not de-toxify or clean food or water, but it...

Re: Fallout 3 quick impressions

Hate to break this to you, idiotic, but I don't think I've ever played a role playing game that wasn't "stat-based."



Don't bother. Melee isn't that good a skill to make it worth points,...

Re: Fallout 3 quick impressions

Yeah, the hunting rifle is my workhorse. I also keep a silenced 10 mm pistol for sneak kills, a Chinese Assault Rifle for super mutants, and a sniper rifle for...well, sniping. I don't use energy...
