Re: Discovering Leeroy Jenkins

Nah, you could always get item drops (just not quest drops), which was the primary reason you went into those things (I did a lot of 15 man UBRS raids back in the day; the server did not have enough...

Re: Any Super Paper Mario impressions?

The humor doesn't always work and I'm not very good at the style moves, but the game is good and I don't think it's too talky.

Luigi does have a slightly higher jump in addition to the super jump,...

Re: Starcraft II

Ghost got "postponed indefinitely" a while back after Blizzard took it back from the company they had contracted to do it.

It's probably canceled.

Re: Collector's, Limited, Special editions: Do you bite?

It depends on which collector's edition. I'm a bit of a sucker for the things too; Oblivion's was good; the making of DVD was nice if you're interested in that stuff and the history book was also...

Re: The Burning Crusade

Not sure about the integrated video card, but you should be ok.
Mac System requirements are 933 Mhz/512 Meg Ram/32 Mb Video Ram; my PC for a long time was 1700+ AMD/512 Meg Ram/64 Meg Video Ram and...

Re: The Burning Crusade

I got burnt out on the game by the old honor system; at the time I didn't want to put in the time the game would require for me to go anywhere (either in a raiding guild or 20+/hrs a week of PvP) at...

Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

Beat Shining Force 1. For some reason I felt like playing it ... had it on the old Sega Smash Pack disc. [One of the few games on it without completely messed up sound].

Fun, but had some...

Re: If you play the PC version of Oblivion....

Thanks for the mod tips - I've been messing around with a new character since I picked up the retail Knights of the Nine collection.

A quick question about the Francesco mod - does it also even...

Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

Well, I finished Beyond Good & Evil. The sudden jump in difficulty at the final boss was weird; not that the boss itself was too hard, but at a couple points in the fight there was a requirement of...

Re: Zelda TP gets 1up 10/10

For the most part I agree with Littledoc here ... also, it generally seems weird to have 10/10 and then discuss game flaws in general. Though I think the points made in the Gears of War thread fit...

Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

Re: How do you feel about racist yellowface voiceover?

You seem to feel that casting a non-asian voice actor in an asian role is inherently racist.

... which doesn't really make sense to me.

Now, the voice acting job done can certainly be racist...

Re: I was not WoW'd

Part of it can be attributed to Skinner Box (http://www.nickyee.com/eqt/skinner.html) mechanics, somewhat cynically, but I don't think that's a lot of it.

The biggest reasons are probably social. ...

Re: Oblivion is finally getting on my nerves

Kvatch is pretty uniquely broken in terms of scaling, as you're meant to fight with people, but the people don't scale as well as the mobs, due to gear, and the fights are setup for lower levels. ...

Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

Well, I beat Half-Life 2 : Episode One. Talked about it more on the other thread - $20.00 is a fair amount for a 6 hour game, but the commentary and the quality mean it's worth it.

Re: Half-Lfe 2 Episode One

I played through Episode One and am partway through with the commentary. It's another refinement rather than an overhaul - there's not really a bad section of the game at all, though I think they...

Re: Massive Online Gaming: the future (E3)

Yes, Vanguard is a rip-off of Old-School Everquest.

That's kinda the point of it, the Lead Designer for Vanguard is Brad McQuaid who was one of the Lead Designers of Everquest.

Not that it's...

Re: Attitude shift towards Nintendo

Mostly I think it's the DS. Back before the DS was released, Nintendo was losing the console war (PS2/Xbox/GC) and facing the PSP, and no-one knew if the DS would work. The DS has more or less paid...

Re: GC thoughts on online MMO sellers

The inflation cost from gold buying does have an effect at 60 - it was obvious for me, I think because I hit 60 relatively early on my server and thus the guild (which was quite good) took some time...

Re: Oblivion Tips & Tricks

Helms are a lot rarer than other pieces ... I don't think there's a set location for any, just keep killing stuff and leveling up and one will show up eventually. It took me a long while to get a...

Re: Oblivion Tips & Tricks

If you're just doing Kvatch in your 20s, beware.

Later on in that you fight alongside a number of allies. Unfortunately, they don't auto-level as well as the enemies, and won't last long at all...

Re: Oblivion Tips & Tricks

As for Heavy Armor vs Light Armor -

At Master Skill, they're identical. Light Armor gets weightless at Expert and a 50% bonus at Master, which gives a full set of Glass and a full set of Daedric...

Re: Oblivion Tips & Tricks

I think the darkness was intentional - I just went with it, as both being a Khajit and a Vampire gave me effecitvely free Night Eye. (0 Cost for the former, 5 Cost for the latter, which also...

Apart from the two items Tron mentioned, I've got a staff that appears to summon Daedra, a very nice 1-H sword (great enchant, barely less damage than a daedric longsword but faster speed), a great...
