[QUOTE="ExoticAnimal"] It got a 92% on metacritic. Haven't played any other PoP game but doubt I'll be playing the other two games on the HD collection any time soon.ExoticAnimal

I think you should try out Prince Of Persia: The Forgotten Sands. It's pretty much a decent take on the POP series that's straight-forward, linear, and easy to go through. Best sections of the game are the platforming, but the combat is dull and unexciting.

I'll pass on it. Got a huge backlog that I need to work on. I like the challenging games so easy games don't really suit me well.

That's fine man.

you know, yankee candle now has a line of "men" candles, featuring sawdust and cut grass scents.

I heard about that on the news :P I stay inside so i don't have to smell grass and saw dust. Damn yankee candles trying to make my insides smell like my outsides

Game of Thrones season 2 finale was fantastic :). They managed to recreate certain scenes really well, better than I could've imagined. Now I have to finish A Storm of Swords before season 3 starts.

I just started the 3rd book last night. Enjoying it so far. I should have plenty of time before season 3 starts :P

I'm fairly early on in it as well. I noticed though they used a few things early on in book 3 in season 2 of the show.

Cool. I received my copy of Rage and Wrestlemania 28 in the mail from Amazon today. :) I think I'll be watching Wrestlemania 28 tonight. I may play Rage tomorrow...

Been playing Grandia a lot since I bought it. It's a good game. Interesting story and a fun battle system.

I also loved Xenogears. Had an amazing soundtrack, excellent battle system, and the story was too powerful to ignore. I also loved the twists and surprises that happened throughout the story. Two things I didn't like about the game though...

-The dialogue was slow. I remember wishing, a lot, that there was some kind of option to speed up the dialogue, but it wasn't fast enough.

-The second disc was rushed. I heard it's due to the budget being used for games that needed more attention, such as Final Fantasy VII. Too bad...I just hated the pacing and how forced it was.

Only played it once, but it's an amazing game despite the slow pacing and the second disc. My copy froze on the last boss. I still need to beat it.

Ouch, that sucks.. I hate the ending maze so much.

Is there a lot of super natural stuff in Game of Thrones? The beginning of episode one was cool but the rest of it just seems like a middle ages drama.
#124 Posted by Daavpuke (13769 posts) -
The current game industry surrounding is filling me with such sorrow lately. There's so so very much finger pointing with no introspection. Don't get me wrong, I luuuuuuv finger pointing, but when it's on issues that are as simple as not participating, you'd have to think why anyone would put in the extra effort to make sure to ruin it for everyone else, because their choice doesn't coincide with someone else's choice. Mleh, I'm probably just tired and melodramatic. I just think everyone should have the right to their freedom, to use or abuse as they please.

A Game of Thrones was basically 100% the same as the first season of Game of Thrones. A Clash of Kings was a bit different than season 2 - and they added one of the early chapters of A Storm of Sword (Book 3) to the last part of Season 2. They also excluded a few characters and in the books, all the parts with Robb are told from the perspective of Catelyn, whereas the show just shows Robb's own perspective. A Storm of Swords is apparently where all the poop hits the fan, so I'm looking forward to that lol.

It's a much shorter endeavor anyway. You can finish it in a day (as did I). However, if you want to get the frustration out of the way first and then alleviate it, I'd go the other way around. But then it'll probably be some time before you can sink your teeth in Juliet.

Yeah that sounds like a mindless killing game and Dogma will take a bit of patience to put up with its shortcomings but once you do a great game is below the surface. Just remember graphics and story suck.

Be careful. I don't know about you but I once hit Lego repetitiveness and could not play one for a while. I had to skip the Lego Pirates one.
