  • Planeforger posted a message in the forum topic Do Nintendo care about gaming or ... just Nintendo?. on the System Wars board

    Nothing you wrote makes any sense."Offline games aimed at young people" ignores the fact that quite a few of their recent major titles have had an online focus (like Monster Hunter 4 or Spltoon), and ...

  • Planeforger posted a message in the forum topic What is your sex/gender?. on the Off-Topic Discussion board

    Male and...mostly masculine?I have no idea how I'd assess my gender, really. I don't strongly identify with traditionally masculine interests (beer, sport, cars), but I'm not particularly effeminate e...

  • Planeforger posted a message in the forum topic Grand Theft Auto 5. on the Games Discussion board

    The game also features interactive strippers, which some parents might be hesitant about.The actual gameplay stuff is generally fine. It's antisocial, sure, but it's not excessively gory and the crazy...

    @aless0: Is it like Swords & Soldiers?

  • Planeforger posted a message in the forum topic Did consoles kill level design?. on the System Wars board

    This actually has some grounding in reality.During the Xbox era, a bunch of games did have to be simplified, and their levels shortened dramatically, to accommodate the Xbox's limited hardware.For exa...

  • Planeforger posted a message in the forum topic What is the Witcher series combat like?. on the Games Discussion board

    The Witcher 2 and 3 have combat similar to Batman, Dark Souls, or other action games. It's fast paced and punishing, you'll dodge around the place, attack when the enemies are open, and so on.The Witc...

  • Planeforger posted a message in the forum topic Did consoles kill level design?. on the System Wars board

    @nyadc: The Xbox examples were just the first to come to mind, since I read a lot about it back in the day.It was definitely the most powerful console at the time, but PC developers really struggled w...

  • Planeforger posted a message in the forum topic Poll: Which do you think is the most innovative (or "more next-gen") controller of the latest gen home consoles?. on the System Wars board

    The Wii U gamepad is the only truly innovative one.If it got more support, it could definitely alter and improve how console games are played.I mean...console games are absolutely limited by the avail...

  • Planeforger posted a message in the forum topic Official ''Can't remember the title of a game'' thread 2.0. on the Games Discussion board

    @superjetze: Could you say whether it was sci-fi or fantasy? Do you remember anything about the story, puzzles or characters?From your desctiption of the environment, I would guess something like Zork...

  • Planeforger posted a message in the forum topic Final Fantasy VII (PS) VS Planescape Torment (PC). on the System Wars board

    @Jag85: Graphically, Torment has aged *far* better than FF7. Both use pre-rendered backgrounds, yet Torment's still look sharp, while FF7 is a bit of a mess.The character models in Torment are better ...

  • Planeforger posted a message in the forum topic Final Fantasy VII (PS) VS Planescape Torment (PC). on the System Wars board

    I've actually put a lot of time into Final Fantasy 7 lately.It's full of clunky exposition, muddled cutscenes, annoying character railroading, and truly awful minigames. It's not an awful game underne...

  • Planeforger posted a message in the forum topic Spector vs Levine vs Molyneux. on the System Wars board

    I'll say Spector, given that I love his pioneering of emergent gameplay.Then again, Spector completely snubbed be at a gaming event I went to, so screw him! :p

    @dakan45: It's a budget game adaptation of a budget film series - what's not to love?

  • Planeforger posted a message in the forum topic Shigeru Miyamoto VS Hideo Kojima VS John Carmack. on the System Wars board

    In terms of influence on the industry? It's between Miyamoto and Carmack.In terms of pioneering genres? It's probably Miyamoto.In terms of making excellent games? The numbers favour Miyamoto as well.I...

  • Planeforger posted a message in the forum topic Did Smash Bros get a pass on its online funtionality?. on the System Wars board

    I didn't have any problems with it at launch.Since then, I've only played local multiplayer - the way the game is supposed to be played.

  • Planeforger posted a message in the forum topic Are You Hype for Godzilla PS4 Game Exclusive This July?. on the System Wars board

    If it has local multiplayer, I'll pick it up.My girlfriend and I are big fans of Godzilla (and Mothra, and King Ghidorah, etc.).

    @xxninja666xx: Oh definitely. Age of Decadence is pretty much all about the replayability, so you don't particularly mind that the final chapter isn't complete yet - you could easily play through the ...

  • Planeforger posted a message in the forum topic Today vs 2005 - are we getting more or less content for our money?. on the System Wars board

    If we're just talking about AAA console titles, then my gut instinct says 'yes'.In contrast, PC games seem to be feeling lengthier and more in-depth...but maybe that's simply because I have more patie...

  • Planeforger posted a message in the forum topic Any PC RPGs with more talking and persuading than fighting?. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    Age of Decadence gets my vote.I think my Merchant character got through the first 2/3rds of the game without entering a single battle.
