  1. Oreyn liked a post in a topic by Lightning in Halo VS Geras of War VS Borderlands   
    I like Halo the best. Talking about CE-3 here (maybe even lolReach). The core of why I love it so much is because of the great story that made for great campaigns, the oh so good competitive multiplayer, the best soundtrack of a thing ever! And of course the Master Chief himself. Such a simple protagonist but, totally badass. If back then you wanted a skill based shooter that was modernizing shooters themselves, it was Halo. Two men walk in and the better player left, that was Halo. Will never have a MP mode that grabs my attention like Bungie Halo did. Too bad the MCC sucked.
    And here we come, to 343 Halo. Well, 343 only has one more game left to go and they finish the second trilogy and leave Master Chief alone right? Right? Godawful.
    Gears doesnt excite me too much but, voted for that one second by default. It is cool but, just did the campaigns coop and the first one was one of the first games for my 360 that let me wondering about the possibilities of the system. Still havent done Judgement.
    Borderlands whatever. Good games but, dont have much to say. Whenever I played them it was coop only (will not play them by myself) and I just went on autopilot. My brother likes them much more. Still havent done the Pre Sequel.

    #1 would be Halo for me. Pretty much from Halo : Reach and back. It was a large part of my gaming experience growing up. I remember when I first played Halo 1 at a friends house, and when halo 2 was coming out we played the 1st for weeks on end to "prepare" for the next one. I remember when halo 3 came out, me and my buddy both got it the day it came out and finished the campaign on legendary 3 minutes before it hit midnight that day. I enjoyed the aspect of being a standard soldier and seeing the crumbling city in ODST. The strategy version of Halo Wars, and felt like Halo Reach was a perfect way to finish off the franchise, as a sort of final farewell. Anything after, well it becomes a different story I won't talk about here.
     
    #2 was Gears of War. Chainsaw guns and killing a monstrous horde with grit and explosives. Did exactly what I wanted to do. And once again, had my buddy to carve a bloody path through it. Didn't overly care about 3 when we blew through it for spoiler reasons. And the... what was it called? Vengence? The one that came out after 3. It was just meh, been there and done that.
     
    #3 is Borderlands. I could live without it. Seemed a bit too "try hard" to me, but that was probably part of its attempted humor. Wasn't a big fan of the art style, but that's just me. Story seems a bit convoluted without any good way to deepen it besides a handful of quests to find the voice recorders. Had the general "oh, you need to do everything for everyone and save the world single handedly without gratitude because reasons" approach. And I did all the side missions (I like to do that) so it ended up just eating time instead of making things feel worth while. And THAT ending. 
    I don't care if it was setting up the story for the sequel. It didn't feel like it then. I know sometimes a journey is better than the destination, but the destination here ended up being crap. The journey was like traveling down a toilet. It seemed like crap the whole way and ended in a large pile of crap.
    I hated it. My friend who played through it with me hated it more. When the 2nd came out, we forced ourselves to play through that one and hated the ending in it as well. It just wasn't for us I suppose. It's certainly not the WORST game I've ever played, far from it. But I'd recommend plenty of other games before it. But that's just my current thoughts on it.
  3. Lhouraii liked a post in a topic by Oreyn in Star Wars Advice   
    Yes, 4,5, and 6 are the older movies. It does seem a bit odd at first, but that's why numbers 1,2,and 3 are called the prequels.
    It's a little hard to explain without spoiling any of it, so consider 4,5, and 6 as Original Star Wars and 1,2, and 3 as a different story in the same universe. Original came out first, prequels came out second. If I recall, I think the reasoning for this is George Lucas wasn't sure if it'd be successful and didn't have the money for all 6 movies so he just made the 2nd half first hoping he'd be able to go back later on.
    But I'm sure you'll be able to understand most or all of it once you watch the movies. Should be fun since it'll all be new for you, and if you end up with questions then you just have to ask.

    You got a nice list of games you're looking at as is, so I'd advise against getting another console just for it's "exclusive" whatever deal.
    There will be more fancy special editions in the future, there always is. So unless you KNOW you're going to play Halo 5 to the point you can beat multiplayer blindfolded without sounds and one hand behind your back, you're going to want more games on it. And it just doesn't have enough games for itself yet. But that's just how I see it. If you want to throw your money at it, I'm sure they'll be happy to catch it.
     
    And you'd have to go through the setting up another console, letting it take hours to update everything, download the games onto it, find out which friends also got it, and all that nonsense.

  6. Oreyn liked a post in a topic by Ghaleon in Final Fantasy 7 Remake Combat System will be Different   
    Yeah I've been waiting to get on my pc to respond to that question because the answer isn't as simple as it seems... But that's a portion of the complication.
     
    What exactly qualifies as a AAA exactly? In addition to what exactly qualifies as an RPG? They are both pretty open to interpritation to some extent, RPG in particular being wildly variable depending on who is speaking. Some of the realistic examples that I consider to be in a gray area that I do NOT consider too extreme are as I mentioned, the etrian odyssey series. There's also demon gaze for the vita, and though It's too early to tell if it's well received or not, dungoen travelers 2 for the vita as well. I suspect it will be well regarded by gamers with the device who have an interest in dungeon crawler rpgs. I don't know if these somehow don't count because you feel portable games aren't 'AAA' enough even if they are by larger names.
     
    How about games that aren't remakes per say, but are old but have only been localized more recently? There's trails in the sky FC, and I'm sure SC will be praised as well. Cold steel will also likely apply when it's out. Then there's the neptunia series which reviewers utterly BLAST, but has a very large fanbase (though I will admit it's little to do with its depth of combat mechanics). JRPG wasn't ar requirement either, so then we have games like Wasteland 2, though that wasn't AAA in budget, it's kind of in terms of publicity.
     
    Your comment about 'strategic rpgs'... I'm not sure if you're trying to say those don't 'count' either because they are too strategic to be rpgs. I hope not because that's a cop out IMO. The whole purpose of a battle system in a turn based game is to provide some kind of strategic element to the story. real-time combat systems seen in non-turn based rpg games can be considered 'too actioney, not really an rpg' by the same logic if that's what you're getting at.
     
    Why does it have to be AAA anyway? That's kind of the problem with so many gamers these days is they somehow think non-AAA games aren't worth exploring or considering for some reason.
     
    I think this perception that real-time is inherently better than turn-based in an rpg game is silly like how so many non-gamers (who had a hand in making/designing/publishing games) thought they knew better than gamers in that 3d was somehow just plain better than 2d back when the ps1 was out and new. And no, technology didn't limit the ability to make rpg games realtime until just recently. There have been RPG games with realtime combat mechanics for far too long to say that. Valkyrie profile (though that's a weird quasi turn-based realtime hybrid thing), secret of mana, Xanadu series, Ys series (I don't consider that an RPG myself but others do)... strangely enough those are all examples of amazing rpg games and on average, their combat IS better than many turn based games of their time. I think that is because they didn't think they were better just because it wasn't turn based though, but still felt like they had to work and balance it to be competitive.
     
    Another example that's more than 5 years old (like 7-8) that I think even you will admit would be appreciated all the same if it was more recent is Valkyria chronicles. That one is in fact 'too strategic, not rpg' by my standards though... If you were to make up an imaginary game with the same kind of storytelling, only where you can customize your party members stats somehow and whatnot, and where the player had to make choices more often, I think it could be seen as an RPG by most however though (it already is by many but whatever).
  7. Legolas_Katarn liked a post in a topic by Oreyn in I think I'm getting bored with video games/life in general   
    I'd certainly try to keep you company, situation sounds really similar to how I was after I finished High School. But we have a 7 hour time difference, so I wouldn't be much help.
    If you can get some work or a job, something that'll eat up your day, then when you have time off to play games it may seem like good fun again just because it's not as much? Like eating your favorite food, it stops seeming as good if you don't have something different every once in a while.
    There isn't really anything I can do except say "Hang in there" and similar things. So... Hang in there.
    Oh, also to answer your question, I don't think you're doing anything wrong. Just bad luck trying to find folks to play with I suppose. Surely there's someone closer to your time zone to play with consistantly.

    Because it was a magic world full of magic, so that tends to let most rules and logic vanish. So, I'm going to guess at your questions.
    1) probably an actual mythical creature in Japan, they have lots of them.This one probably devours the greedy.
    2) Because it's a spirit world and those are random spirits.
    3) Because magic. and sibling rivalry. But mostly magic.
    4) Because magic? Probably some sort of seal that keeps the spirits there that might destroy them if they try to leave. And if she looked back maybe she'd become trapped?
    5) Because the story was completed, happy ending. You really want them to have 20,000 sequels? That ruins the magic, and then logic gets applied, then one thing leads to another and we're stuck with nuclear fallout and zombies and every other form of apocalypse. Or we get politics, either way no one's happy.

  12. Oreyn liked a post in a topic by Kyouko Suehara in How far would game companies go to destroy a franchise?   
    Games we know and love, by the end of the day are still 'products and services' and with that comes every opportunity of the company that sells them to make more money. Let's say something like Silent Hill P.T. for example. It wasn't treated as a game by Konami and instead it was treated as a mere product they can remove with a whim. They did not care whether it was a piece of history or a landmark in gaming but a mere toy they could take away from everyone. Unless we can elevate video games from being 'just a toy' into a work of art in the eyes of everyone, these companies will continue to disrespect their own titles and the hardwork of truly good game developers out there.

    Don't have the skype thing, or a computer camera. Though I suppose I should start looking into both of those things. But I'll still be a friend if you want, in the forums, on teamspeak, on the xbox, where ever. Just say what and when and I'll try to be there to help or give you some company.
     
    Not that good at just starting conversations out of the blue however, but I'm here when needed. I tend to be good at waiting around.

    Well being a "Forum Celebrity" with 2000 posts, people might think, "What an awesome guy! He must be famous and very social. I mean, 2000 posts and 1000 likes...what a guy!. I guess I could add him on Skype" but it's quite the opposite.
     
    1.) Lots of times I'm AFK or just busy
    2.) I'm actually pretty "shy"...or simply someone who prefers to be quiet unless spoken to. I rarely start a conversation. I'm only used to starting a conversation with VERY, very close friends and somone I know very well.
    3.) You aren't much online yourself xD
    4.) I'm not really shy but I have a hard time talking with people I don't often talk to or just don't know well enough yet. I'm just someone you have to keep on pesking and diggig at to get to know better
    As I've said, I'm not great or experienced at starting conversations or even keeping them going. People often get the feeling I have no interest in them. *sigh*
     
     
    I guess I have some kind of a cursed spell binding me.
     
    And I'm a basement dweller. Been living in my basement for years, I have no knowledge of these..."social things"...as the Surface People call them.
  15. Lhouraii liked a post in a topic by Oreyn in Favourite 360 Game?   
    On the 360? I guess the 3 off the top of my head would be : 
    1. Dark Souls.
    2. Ace Combat 6 : Fires of Liberation.
    3. Halo Reach.
     
    My favorite tends to change depending on what I feel like playing, but I go back to those 3 more often than others. And I was able to get Skyrim on PC with the expansions and mods so it beats the console version in my opinion.
  16. Oreyn liked a post in a topic by Malphisto in Microsoft fucks it up again, this time with The Witcher 3 Gameplay   
    I never did actually understand the whole PC Master Race bit. Why its assumed that one is better than the other makes zero sense. Case in point, if you are a Gamer, the system of choice would generally be console for a few reasons. Lets pause and take this back some odd number of years ago. Games on consoles didn't require installation and they ran very smoothly. Likewise, consoles were/are far more reliable and don't require nearly as much effort to maintain. The "issue" as I see it is that, at some point in time, companies began trying to make consoles more and more like actual computers complete with internet browsers and now friggen "apps" which are practically everywhere. Its unnecessary, and all it does is ramp up the cost.
     
    Unfortunately, I was unlucky enough to find myself dealing with one such "PCMR Fanboy" who basically told me that anyone who plays on a console is a "peasant scrub not fit to be called a gamer" because we apparently don't make enough money to have a Gaming PC. That owning a console immediately dubs someone as being low income or whatever.
     
    I could personally care less about the graphics. The Xbox 360 was capable of visuals that did not require further enhancement. If you can make games like Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Destiny, Halo, Dark Souls, Kingdoms of Amalur and Skyrim on the Last Gen systems, there should be ZERO REASON to keep making such a god damn fuss about the graphics for games and focus MORE on the actual gameplay content for said games instead. I'm sure the Witcher 3 will still be an excellent game. Personally? I would hope that Wild Hunt was made for the Next Gen not because of the graphics, but because the game simply could not function on the previous consoles. As in, the shit you see happen or get to do in the game is beyond the capabilities of the Last Gen hardware specs. THAT is what I am more focused on.
  17. Oreyn liked a post in a topic by Malphisto in Dark Souls Rage   
    Yeah, Ghaleon, the wife got me Scholar of First Sin for my birthday 5 days ago. Actually just got done beating the Belfry place and killing those Belfry Gargoyles at the top. Strangely enough, I had two players invade me prior to said boss fight. Killed both, the first one with my halberd and the second with the rapier. Then proceeded to rock the boss with a barrage from my crossbow. The random enemies cropping up behind me are weird. I've actually tried back tracking and moving up to trigger the aggro and then racing backwards to try and spy where they are coming out from. I can see where a few come out of that are just impossible to reach without aggroing the entire consortium. I don't know, I mean its cool and all, not going to complain. I enjoy the fast pace action of it all the same.
     
    I wouldn't really say Shield + 1H is a newbie setup. Essentially, any combination is going to require considerable skill and planning to pull off effectively. That's true for anything, in my opinion. My mindset in these games is always geared towards a tanker build, like old RPGs. Currently rocking the Tower Shield which is at +3 along with a +3 Rapier, a Crossbow and the Blue Knight's Halberd cause I totally ended up deciding to kill that guy. And I'm still well within my Equip Load to avoid a speed penalty. But yeah, Shields in general require a sufficient amount of personal skill to use well, given that the stamina limitations and the general lack of dodging. Its all in how you use things, really. Likewise, also what I've noticed is that each area in the games are less about level and more in terms of enemy combat styles. Cause the way the enemies attack are ultimately going to determine how much of a pain they are to fight, overall. In the first game? At the starting area I had actually been farming those skeletons using my friggen club to get souls. If I would've had better gear, though, I could have done a LOT more against them. Same goes for the second game, though I feel like this is true more so in the sequel as I pretty much went a couple different routes and was able to defeat/challenge enemies equally to the same extent minus the large groups ganking me.
     
    Also, Lhouraii, I wouldn't think too much of the falling and such. Its really not THAT bad. Both games, those kinds of situations were few and far between. In the first game there was really only one or two parts that made it something to be really mindful of, but the challenge itself as they were presented to you made them very quite fun and a thrill to complete successfully. I believe in the first game you don't really encounter one of those parts until real later on, and I personally have yet to come across anything remotely like that in the second game. There may or may not be anything like this in this one, I'm not entirely sure, but I wouldn't be too concerned with it. Definitely don't let it sway you from playing Dark Souls, though. Either one of them. Cause really, the series IS good and you will get a major sense of accomplishment when you do finally beat the game. It will feel like you've just done something super amazing and you can be proud about that.
     
    I totally support you re-buying the first one and absolutely agree with getting the sequel as well. Maybe do the second game first and see how that fairs for you, then go back and get the first again.
  18. Lhouraii liked a post in a topic by Oreyn in Dark Souls Rage   
    Given time, any game becomes easy. But comparing between Dark Souls 1 and 2, I'd say the 2nd is easier. Possibly due to having played the 1st one throughly, but certain aspects of the 2nd just seemed to be less difficult. More ways to heal, more magics to choose from, and a way to 'clear' areas. Not to mention how much easier it is to gain allies in the 2nd, making the experience practically a breeze with the right partners (If you decide you require the assistance that is, still recommended to play by yourself first however until you're stuck)
    However, the 2nd is still a difficult game. There was well over 100k deaths before day 1 even ended if I recall. Larger groups of enemies and more of them is a common occurance but easily dispatched once identified. I noticed far less invasions, but also saw them occur when I suspected they wouldn't. 
     
    I felt there was a bit more emphasis on having a select "build" during a play through however. Where before I could make easy use of all forms of combat depending on the situation, I felt somewhat more constrained trying to utilize all the combat forms.
    The "level" system did little from my observations (I could very easily be wrong about this). You aren't matched with your level, but rather the total souls you've had for the character you're using. Someone at lvl 100 could be matched with someone 50 levels or lower. So while you won't be in a early area facing invading foes with late game equipment, if you lose all your souls repeatedly to a ridiculous amount, you'll be at a larger disadvantage with no real way to come back from it.
     
    All in all however, I found myself enjoying the 2nd for it's game play a bit more. Perhaps the combat flow or that it seemed simpler to get through kept me around. Maybe it's because I scoured the 1st game to it's limits. I'm not sure, but to each their own.

    Dark Souls is a sort of trial and error kind of game. You die until you find the right way to get through (or you slip up.)
    For weapon, just pick something you like and get used to how the weapon works. It's liable to get you pretty far, further if you improve it (which you should be able to figure out later on.)
     
    Armor wise, pay attention to the weight percentage thing which is depended on endurance if I recall correctly. If you have great armor, but move like a brick, then you'll take a beating. If you have too flimsy armor, best be good at dodging. So a balanced selection is best in my opinion. 
     
    If you use items, remember that you don't get them back after death. Things like firebombs, throwing knives, antipoison, and arrows are gone once used. Estus for the estus flask (your healing item) is recharged when you rest. 
     
    Please, for the love of all that is good, DON'T KILL THE MERCHANTS. You can't buy items from a dead person and more than likely you'll get little or nothing from killing them. Also, if you kill a blacksmith, you practically stabbed yourself. repeatedly. with a rusty blade. (That said, if you accidently hit someone and they become hostile, they will always be hostile. This can be fixed by a specific character you meet later on.)
     
    If you can't seem to get past specific enemies, you may not be supposed to be there yet. While you can go anywhere, it may be ill advised to do so. The ghosts you mention, if they are killing you in a large underground flooded looking place, is meant to be done later. By then, you should learn a way to defeat them.
     
    Keep in mind however, much of the joy from this game is by learning how to beat something and then doing so or finding some sort of hidden item. Which is why I'm not going much into detail. Keep at it and I'm sure you'll succeed.

    I'm looking through what games I've played, so I think the game "Overlord" may also be an option. Same art style as fable, but a bit more of an action-adventure game than a level up RPG. You can find artifacts to increase maximum health and magic, can reinforce weapons an armor later on, that sort of thing. It's a bit more of a stretch to fit it in the same catagory as dragon age however. You play as the villain in this by the way, so there's that.
     
    Let's see, what else... there's "Hunted : The Demon's Forge". Linear story, but there is a leveling system (more or less). Primarily a 2 Co-Op game, never explored more than the story. Played through it once with a friend, wasn't great but also wasn't horrible. Never put much of an effort to play a 2nd time oddly enough. Look into it at your own discretion.
     
    Only other two I can find are Eternal Sonata (played 30 minutes at most, simply wasn't for me) and Two Worlds which... well I believe Angry Joe did a review for both the 1st and 2nd? Not sure, but 1st was bad. Heard the 2nd was ... decent? In any case, I think that's all I got. Good luck though.

    Keep in mind however, much of the joy from this game is by learning how to beat something and then doing so or finding some sort of hidden item. Which is why I'm not going much into detail. Keep at it and I'm sure you'll succeed.
