  1. Albatross- 18 Conrad Marburg- 12 Henry Leland- 17 Hong Shi- 5 (-1) That's what you get for not being killable Konstantin Brayko- 18 Mina Tang- 10 Omen Deng- 21 SIE- 21 Scarlet Lake- 23 Sis- 23 Steven Heck- 22 (+1) Don't fall behind, best bud!
  2. I had positive rep with Deng and when i search for data instead of calling Parker, Deng contacted me and told me Scarlet was the killer. I'm sure there's a way of finding out sooner. As for the "you didn't know she was the killer" ending, i got it
  3. Right now, because it's fun It's pointless to get some sense outta the guy and this thread should be locked/"ontopicked" but i wouldn't know what to add to that. In relation to that, i'll proceed to shut up and let the educated continue edit: i also just read your post regarding not answering Volourn so, you know...
  4. How many games are you arguing ME2 sold? 3 million? 2 million? When you said "Bottom line is that ME2 has sold way more than 1.8 mil copies. " i was thinking at least a million more but now i'm not so sure. I'm positive you didn't mean 6.6 now that i've read you say it but seriously, how much? And i don't think Obs' trying to topple Beth or Bio. AP was a shot at reaching them in terms of reachability but they obviously couldn't hold themselves and made it awesome for everyone, not just console shooter gamers.
  5. Kantian ethics? Please not Kant. Give me Sartre! I didn't do much of a moral analysis while i was playing either. When it was kill or be killed, i shot normal rounds. When i could help it, non-lethal.
  6. You're wrong. They don't doubt it. They just laugh at how stubborn you are not to show the actual link (what you gave, www.vgchartz.com, is as useful as telling us to google it, and even then, vgchartz says 1,79million so i guess i was a 100k off?). Crybaby bullies. Now that's a concept. Your link, vgchartz says 2.22 for ME1 and 1.79 for ME2. Unless math's taking a weird turn for the bizarre or that link's inaccurate, you're wrong. I said they put a shooter in it. It's an RPG with a shooter put in it. The RPG and shooter elements barely connect with each other but i suppose that's asking you for too much comprehension at a time. I said ME2 sold well because it's got a shooter in it. I didn't say all Bioware games can't sell well unless they're shooters and i didn't say ME2 is a shooter. Read the full sentences, not just the words. Again, there's just one link saying that there has been sold 6.6m, that many believe a typo while there's plenty that say 1.6-over 2.0. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_Effect_2#Sales http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3177757 http://www.mcvuk.com/news/37369/Mass-Effect-sales-top-2m http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/...2-Million-Units http://www.gamershell.com/news_90274.html http://www.techshout.com/gaming/2010/03/ma...-in-first-week/ http://gamefocus.ca/news/8113 http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/27012/M...llion_Units.php Sure, if it reached 2.5 it'd be a lot more than 1.8, but it's still no 5 million in one week like MW2. But common concensus is NOT 6.6m but something over 2 million units (as in, not 6 million).
  7. Alan Parker- 6 Albatross- 16 Ali Shaheed- 7 Conrad Marburg- 10 Grigori Pazinhov- 3 Henry Leland- 11 Hong Shi- 11 Konstantin Brayko- 14 Mina Tang- 8 Omen Deng- 18 Ronald Sung- 6 SIE- 17 Scarlet Lake- 19 (-1) Scarlet? Better than Heck and equal to Sis? No way i'm allowing this Sis- 20 Steven Heck- 19 (+1) And world balance is restored... Yancy Westridge- 3
  8. I think nobody doubts that he saw the 1.8 number. But his argument of facts are facts is so stubbornly stupid it's hard to let pass. He could've easily dodged it by giving the link but well... I think this thread's up for closing.
  9. I never said you have to be a shooter to sell well. In your defence, there's a typo on my post, it should be read like this: " Critically acclaimed and commercially succesful aren't mutually "inclusive", you know. Shenmue, Grim Fandango, Psychonauts, Okami, Mad World, etc. All got great ratings and didn't sell well. ME2 didn't sell well because it had critical acclaim, it sold well because they put a shooter in it. And because of them putting a shooter in it, they got critical acclaim. The advertising part, though, i can understand. " Sorry for that mistake, though the "All got great ratings and didn't sell well." should've set you to the right path. Obviously Madden, Pokemon, The Sims and Oblivion prove that non-shooters sell well (but who's denying that?). In the end, jumping to conclusions leaves you looking silly. Doesn't this guy's broken record of "fact, fact, fact" remind you guys of... ? Cookie to the one that finds the pertinent youtube video
  10. Critical and acclaimed aren't mutually "inclusive", you know. Shenmue, Grim Fandango, Psychonauts, Okami, Mad World, etc. All got great ratings and didn't sell well. ME2 didn't sell well because it had critical acclaim, it sold well because they put a shooter in it. And because of them putting a shooter in it, they got critical acclaim. The advertising part, though, i can understand. But it seems wasteful to go after unskilled- (and he does make a good point) since we're all having a laugh with Volourn's facts.
  11. Your english is perfect and i agree. While you can't trust EA to release an accurate estimate (we all assume they inflate it because that's how business is) a third party article isn't a valid source unless you link to it. And even then it's arguable. I'm not gonna search a thread to prove you right. That's your job.
  12. Um.. Yeah i am. But i has missed a news!!!1! ZOMG! I has dissapointed Feargus!!! Remind me to never consult anything again.
  13. I know, i'm not saying she's being illogical, i'm saying that answering lawbreakers with lawbreaking is. Mina being a human can just deny that what she's agreeing to is "wrong" (i do think killing people without a trial is wrong but if you disagree, let's just assume it is for argument's sake) and do it anyways. She sets the moral line at a certain point and says "it's cool to kill mafia but not to kill marines" and that's it. Like you say, the reason isn't illogical. My illogical thing was just answering what some guy said about killing mafia scumbags or something
