Imagine how awesome would it be if ME3 ending was in the style of ME2. Where you'd actually participate in the battle of Earth. Guiding all your forces, fighting them in the orbit, etc. Just like the ME2 finale.
I mean one of my favorite moments of ME2 was when I got to fly around Illium in a taxi in the Shadow Broker DLC, despite the limited controls.
Hell I'd even be pleased with a slo-mo scene where you control the Normandy as best you can in a linear path towads Harbinger, dodging his beam and firing at just the right moment.
so I beat Mass Effect 1 again
I forgot how hard Super-Ultra-Mecha-Skelator-SarVen-MkII was.
The PC combat for ME1 wasn't all that terrible IMO.
The original Xbox combat was awful though.
EDIT: Nvm, sorted
yeah I used lift a bunch
but he jumps around so much fuck
No, he said they DID recover the weapon. It's just not usable anymore.
The largest problem with the extended cut of the ending is getting immersed in the game again.
I didn't mind the original ending that much, and now I dont know if I should do a NG+ or something different.
Probably a NG+.
Game reviewers should take note. With the rise of instant internet communication (especially communities within content distribution platforms such as Steam,) word-of-mouth severely outweighs publicized reviews. We don't need some asshole with a magazine to tell us what they think anymore. What we need is someone who is technically literate in the field and who can articulate the technical strengths and flaws of the game (i.e. bugs, wonky controls, compatibility, etc.) This is not the kind of coverage we are getting from games media. We are getting "Gears of War is fuckin dope as hell!" and "Call of Duty is like getting a blowjob and having sex at the same time!" and mostly a bunch of immature, childish shit that does nothing in the way of giving expert, knowledgeable evaluations on the product.
I meet strange people in lobbies. Especially 5 mins ago. Everyone was ready, expect host player. Waited for about 1 minute, so everyone started vote kick, so did i. I waited for host migration and noticed that the rest two guys quited. So, why do you kick if you dont stay afterwards? >_<
I just saw a horrible long ass nightmare about how bad the ending was, 3 weeks after beating the game.
You know how it feels to wake up from a nightmare like that? Even worse.
Should I maybe review games? I'm very reflective and such, but there are already so many amature reviewers out there.
If they're a story-game, for instance, you need to be able to articulate their literary strengths and flaws.
And for all of them you need to be able to formalize and articulate their gameplay tropes in the same way that you would articulate qualities from a film.
i.e. instead of saying "this film made me feel sick watching it," say "the shakey-cam sequences and generally schizophrenic cinematography are disorienting and could do far better with more basic masters and the occasional shot/reverse-shot." i.e. "The Plinkett."
So if you're talking about a shooter, you need to address the technical aspects of hit-detection, control, movement speed, the "stickiness" or fluidity of how the player moves through the environment, the feedback from the weapons and equipment, etc. You don't really need to worry about whether or not your audience can understand the jargon, as most people who would actively look to read smaller, independent reviews are the kinds of people who will understand exactly what you're talking about when you comment on the specifics.
Basically, anyone and their mother can give you an opinion on whether or not a game is "fun." A reviewers job should be to analyze the product in-depth, which few game reviewers ever do.
'scuse me Miranda
what are you doing
I did do it as a profession for some time. That's not really what I was asking for to be honest. My question was whether or not I should start up (yet another) review site in the heaps and heaps of ones that already exist?
EDIT: God I feel arrogant now, sorry.
Fucking cunts ruined an otherwise enthralling experience. It's like building a grand pyramid and taking a massive shit on its peak.
I'm still wondering, will the premium spectre pack be removed before they release the multiplayer DLC?
Also, how to "remove" a romance from your save, the save editor didn't work, i still have that kaiden picture on the desk in ME2.
I already regret talking to him and i shat myself when he came to me before Ilos, i turned him down but according to the save editor it's still a romance...
