  1. I haven't been to highschool, let alone college, so I'm amazed I've managed to follow this conversation at all. ;) All I know is that it's impossible to say we know anything for a fact. It was once proven fact that the Earth was flat, and it was also proven fact that flight was impossible for humans. After all, facts are determined as such by how people percieve evidence. What seems fullproof at the time may look ridiculous in retrospect. Is timetravel possible? I suppose it depends on your interpretation of time.

  2. Good game, good characters, great lines written for great characters, good sidequests, can scare the crap out of you (debatable i know)


    I don't know if it ever scared the crap out of me, but it certainly made me jump a few times. Mostly in the Ocean House Hotel, but I also jumped sometimes when one of those Trizme-created crawling thing burst down doors in my face in Kings Way.

  3. I had no bugs whatsoever. Neither was the collision bad, but I had been playing Thief 3 for a while, so maybe it's just me. :D


    Oh God, don't remind me of Deadly Shadows' collision detection. Every bloody time I went down the last elevator in Captian Moira's mansion, my leg got stuck in the chain. It takes a good seven to ten minutes of jumping and leaning to get out of that one.


    As for the collision on Bloodlines, I've found that if you equip a melee weapon, face the direction of freedom, and keep swinging, your character will take a step every three swings and eventually get out. It takes a minute or two, but if all your saves are old, it's worth it.


    Personally I think Bloodlines is great. I've restarted with a Malkavian, and I have to say the dialogue is absolute gold. "I like explosions. They remind me of my childhood."

  4. Don't be knockin Halo.  Halo 2 may have killed the series, but Halo was good.

    How'd it kill the series? :luck:


    Kill's the wrong word; I meant hurt. I had to rush that post because my mom was looming over me waiting for the computer. Halo 2 wasn't half the game Halo was, it didn't live up to it's name. Don't get me wrong, the gameplay was great, if you're into mindless killing. I mean for Heaven's sake, they reused the old plot! Hopefully 3 will be better.

  5. Neither, the Bouncer is superior to both.


    Seriously, if you call yourself any kind of gamer you owe it to yourself to get this game.


    In any way *wink wink*

    I dimly remember the Bouncer... was it for the N64?


    I never got Halo 2 through on Legendary. How's that even possible?

    As far as I can tell, its not. Too far between checkpoints for me, I always die right before the next one. <_<




    it killed the genre any way you look at it.

    Don't be knockin Halo. Halo 2 may have killed the series, but Halo was good.

  6. Is it "really" that much of an overhaul?


    When I read the interview at the link it didn't seem like that big of a change IMO.


    In reality? Probably not. In my mind? Enough to make me worry. I'm known to exaggerate heavily. It's not the mechanics that are bothering me so much as the overall feel of it. It's just... different. I'll most likely love it, but until then it seems funky to me.

  7. If you can get it cheap, I'd highly recommend it.


    I think the story is pretty tight, and the characters are all really well done.  I love the chatter between Sam and Grimmsdottir


    Oh yeah. :lol:


    Grim: Lasers are so

    Sam: 70's?

    Grim: I was going to say 90s.

    Sam: Stop making me feel old.

    Grim: Sorry Sam, but you are old.



    All of them are really good, but Chaos Theory just took the cake. I loved it.


    And I'm not saying Double Agent will be bad. I'm saying it's a serious risk to completely overhaul a game. Improvements are good. Changes can be better. But remodeling should be saved for things that truly need it. The game may be a lot better, it may be a lot worse. I'll have to watch the reviews before I touch this one. But I really wish they hadn't killed Sarah.

  8. My friend that first told me about SC4 said while working with the terrorists, Sam ends up in prison. I imagine that's where his head gets shaved. And his pretty daughter he's always looking after? Dead. This is sucking so bad.

  9. Well, I don't find it offensive.  Someone else might, though.  I think the only real problem is that someone who doesn't know you that well would get the wrong idea about you from that avatar.    :wacko:


    Yeah, but who would that be around here? This place is small, the only people that wouldn't know him are the newbies. If they refuse to lurk it's their problem, not his. My only problem with it is that it's not Hell Mage.
