  1. Diablo 3 is one of those games I find myself losing track of time alarmingly quick

      That’s me but with Dragon Age Inquisition currently. Already passed the 100 hr mark 

  2. This is not the topic (or forum) to discuss Chris-chan. It's also... tasteless to compare her with Ken so I would not. Also this is extremely rude and tactless. A person's character does not give you a pass to intentionally mis-gender them. Anyway back to Ken.
  3. Star Wars Battlefront II. The one that's not terrible. I've done three missions in the story mode so far and for the most part it's been a blast. This is the first SW game I've played since renting the N64 version of Episode I Racer as a kid, and BF2 seemed like a fun enough jumping point for me. It's pretty jank and I die a lot but it's not that big of a deal for me. Afterwards I might give either one of the Jedi Knight games or the first KOTOR a shot, since both of those seem the most appealing SW games to me story-wise.
  4. Picked up Battlefront and KOTOR, it's pretty surreal how I went from having zero to eleven(!) Star Wars games in a day. Not sure if/when I'll get around to playing all of them, but I did install and play a tiny bit of BF2, so I might just stick with that for now and see how I'm feeling afterwards.

      Huge KotOR fanboy here, basically a walking, talking, breathing encyclopedia on both I and II. Lemme know if you need any help with it!

      i wouldn't wish such evil on the european sonic 3D render TBH

  8. Considering your username, flippant attitude, and intentional distortion of people's arguments in this topic, I had half a mind to ban your account. I don't believe for a goddamned second you're interested in participating in discussion in good faith. But I won't. But I am going to tell you you're going to have a miserable hell of a time convincing anyone that anything you say is worth listening to.
  9. Valve not developing games doesn't equate to them doing nothing.
  10. If only this were Japan. One surefire way of getting the animators to redesign Sonic in time would be to indict whoever did the mocap for him on cocaine charges.
  11. I don't think fixing the design is a viable option at this point. Seems like damage-control PR talk to me (and if they DO change something it'll be something like... changing his eyes to green or adding even more shoelaces). It's like the movie version of 2006, it's flawed to the core and the only thing that could have been done to save it would be to scrap it early in development and start over. I mentioned earlier in this topic that I'd be willing to see the movie for Carrey alone, but I don't think I'll do that now. I have no interest in the movie nor do I feel compelled to give it a chance. I'll check out some clips of his scenes on Youtube if nothing else.
  12. Just picked up a bunch of Star Wars games on sale (entire Jedi Knight series, Episode I Racer, Republic Commando). How are the classic Battlefront and KOTOR games? I'm not sure if I'll get those but they did seem interesting. I'm also wondering about Force Unleashed but the premise doesn't grab me nearly as much.

      You made a good purcahse. As for the others: both KOTOR’S and Battlefront 2 are some of my absolute favorite games ever. (Although in KOTOR 2’s case, make SURE you use the restored content mod)

      Force Unleashed is alright. I seem to be in a minority but I actually liked the Wii version better than the “true” HD version. Sure it has a lot of waggle, but it’s the kind of waggle I actually wanted when I first heard about motion controls. I never played the sequel but I didn’t hear good things about it.

      For Kotor 2, I would argue to first play the game without any mods, than do a second playthrough with the restored content mod and the M4-78 Patch.

      I've been part of the Kotor modding community for a long while. Mods make the game fun, but try to soak in the original experience first.

      @Speederino You're not the only person I've heard say the Wii version of Forced Unleashed was better, lol. Also, how are the single-player portions of Battlefront? I'm not against multiplayer-focused games but I usually like to have a worthwhile campaign to sink my teeth in first.

      @McGroose That's generally how I prefer to approach older games. I like going for QOL enhancements when possible and if a game has a source port I'll opt for it, but I try to stick to the original gameplay and graphics if I can help it.

      Head on over to Deadlystream (basically the current hub for Kotor modding) if you want to download any mods. Almost all newly released Kotor mods today come primarily from this site and Deadlystream also has archives of the majority of old mods for this game minus the really shitty stuff made in paint back in like 2005.

      You won't find engine ports/modifications for this game like you would for some other older games, Kotor's Engine is an absolute mess and we're still trying to understand it today lol. Best you've got regarding that is Reshade/ENB and resolution hacks.

      No Star Wars Kinect? Fail

      The single player portions of Battlefront 2 are awesome.The first games’ is fine, but has some balancing issues and occasional cheapness. Also not near as much variety.

  13. I'm not sure whether to believe it or not; it could go either way because Sonic 2 music would be a weird thing to lie about, but nobody has ever heard of someone other than Nakamura working on Sonic 2's music at any point during its development. What I can say for sure is that I'm definitely interested in hearing more from this teacher and seeing if it's possible to corroborate his experiences.
  14. Deleted some posts containing screencaps of someone (off forum) spouting offensive language to a movie fan. We're aware that there are people like this on the internet so no need to draw further attention to them.
  15. Okay, for the seventeenth time, enough of this shit. Arguing about whether design choices are for the greater good of the general audience have historically gone absolutely fucking nowhere in this thread and I've been long convinced that you in particular get a kick out of riling people up when you say stuff like this. Stop bringing up the marketability of the character designs or overall movie direction in this thread, and for fuck's sake stop sucking Paramount's dick over every creative choice they make while acting like people who expect otherwise are being unreasonable, or we're going to finally put our foot down on your gaslighting antics.

      it's (thankfully) been preserved and re-hosted elsewhere

      but yeah, no surprise there from nintendo sadly.

      @SupahBerry *looks at SoR Remake*

      Nowadays, at least....

      I normally try to see these things from the perspective of the IP holders, and reason why their behaviour might be justifiable even if still dickish and unnecessary. But there's absolutely no justifying Nintendo's stance on this.

      Nintendo can eat an entire ass, and choke on a lump of turd that gets stuck in their throat.

      Maybe they want to encourage people to play Super Mario Bros on the Switch online service....or the Wii U, or the Wii, or the NES mini, or the 3DS, or the Game Boy Advance, or the SNES....?

      i seriously doubt a homebrew port of a 30-year old game to an semi-obscure legacy platform is going to steal away customers from buying re-releases of the same game from various nintendo platforms that are significantly more popular. if anything, nintendo going out of their way to take this port down is only to give this release more publicity than it originally would had gotten had nintendo not done anything at all.

      A prosecutor with a gun only makes sense after one that had a whip and another that was somehow able to cut you from across the courtroom with his fingers.

      (I always assumed Blackquill was throwing something to do that but uh, the wiki tells me otherwise.)

  19. Having a general SRB2 mod topic is okay. Kart getting its own topic is fine too.
  20. Lately I've been playing the leaked beta version of Paper Mario: Sticker Star, it's insane how much was changed between it and the final game

      wtf there were playable Goombas?

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Apparently the beta version has something called a story and Bowser even talks. Can you confirm this?

    3. Sean

      Sean

      Yeah and also Peach has an active role in the plot and doesn't whine about Mario not rescuing her fast enough. It's like the writers at some point in development decided that none of these characters needed to be likable or whatever

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Wow. Surely the gameplay must be better in the final though. Like I can't imagine they had a fun and balanced battle current and just threw it out for stickers... Right?

    5. Sean

      Sean

      Yeah I can see why they threw this gameplay out, it's too fun and it makes the player actually want to do battles rather than spend more time in the overworld listening to Nintendo's crappy meme jokes

    6. Rusty Spy

      Rusty Spy

      wow amazing how much the final game improved. Definitely way too much variety and character in the beta.

      AlphaDream didn't want a portable paper mario outdoing the Mario and Luigi games so the M&L team pursuaded Miyamoto to sabatoge Sticker Star to protect their turf

    8. Sean

      Mr. AlphaDream holding onto a ledge for dear life with Miyamoto looming over him unflinchingly

      Miyamoto: "Remember when I said, after killing Paper Mario, that I would spare you from bad Mario RPGs?"
      Mr. AlphaDream: "YES, MR. MIYAMOTO! YOU DID SAY THAT!"
      Miyamoto: -takes out blueprints for a new game called Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam- "I lied."

      I thought everyone loved this game. It was a masterpiece and the best in the series, that’s what Nintendo said about it!
