  1. The last topic of discussion was which Planescape Torment character would give the hottest strip show

    Even if I were completely sober, I would actually believe such a stupid topic were actually discussed in-depth without bothering to look at the old thread. SUCH IS THE WAY OF THE NERD.

     

    After all, not even the worst fanfiction writer has yet topped the infamous "Tali sweat" fiasco on BSN.

  2. I behaved like a global citizen and ate Taco Bell along with a healthy side of whiskey. Alcohol brings peace to us all. Except for the ones who it doesn't. Rhetorically, of course, I don't wish to implicate myself in any crimes.

  3.  

     

    So, how's that hopey changy thing working for everyone?

     

    Well, at least this was the one campaign promise he did keep:

    It's Obama's fault. Racism was over until he was elected by racist negroes and white race-traitors who betrayed their own race to vote for an illegal Kenyan Taliban. Police never shot young black males in the US before Obama. Or, at least, it wasn't a problem in the media before a ****** was president thanks to international espionage. It's all part of the ongoing Stalinist conspiracy to destroy democracy and freedom thereby oppressing the most oppressed and disenfranchised of all classes, white American males.

     

    Racism was over when Ronald Reagan descended from heaven as the Second Coming to relieve the world of all ills. It's the liberals' fault that things like racism and poverty still exist. If science's "gravity" (a liberal fabrication) didn't exist, everyone could pull themselves up by the bootstraps and everyone would be rich and privy to free energy and unlimited resources for trade in a flawless free market devoid of inequality.

     

    And to think, I once said you had no sense of humor! :lol:

     

    I have no sense of humor. I'm a perfectly rational economic actor. When Herbert Stein said Adam Smith wouldn't have worn an Adam Smith necktie, he was simply stating a fact based on the anachronism that they didn't have neckties (or Adam Smith neckties) when Adam Smith was a professor of Moral Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh. There was no broader societal implication to that which has been ignored by those who have not actually read An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations. After all, political and moral standings are binary and not fluid. If I were to say I were a "liberal" who wholeheartedly backed the 2nd Amendment, seeing it as nothing less than a guarantee to an individual right to bear arms(to bear arms is not to use arms,) I would be (metaphorically) crucified by all the people ostensibly my friends (and enemies,) regardless of the truth of my beliefs.

     

    Also if I were to say I were a "progressive" who thought little of unions in this day and age given their factionalism (to say nothing of the gross injustices of governmental unions, especially on the local and state level,) I would also be drawn and quartered after my lengthy crucifixion.

  4. This is new... when, exactly? The police aren't loyal to the law of the land, they're loyal to themselves and their Police Union compatriots. Decades of psychological/sociological studies have suggested such.

    Even though Ayn Rand was an atheist who hated Reagan, as well as all other politicians.

  5. In the US, at least.

     

    Next year is going to look very interesting in terms of what games look like in terms of inclusion.

    Interesting in that the industry at large will still behave as though teen boys playing cawwadoody and madden are the sole audience for video games, right? And that they're dependent on Christmas presents from mommy and daddy for new games and thus major game releases will be focused in the fall of any given fiscal year.

  6.  

    Why asking what is in the beta if you can play it very soon, bored maybe? I dont get it.... i´m getting old and out of touch with to many people.... ehm gamers....

     

    Why ask what the weather is going to be like if you're just going to find out tomorrow anyway? ... Just curious, I guess.

     

    Because you can prepare for the weather and not get rained on without an umbrella or sunburnt without sunscreen. Weather, after all, can be forecast with a high degree of accuracy in the short term.

     

    If the beta contains a small fraction of the full game's content then it's probably not worth paying for if you're looking for a sizable amount of content.

  7. Well I thought what the hell and plugged the Wasteland 2 steam code I got for backing Eternity in and have whiled away a large chunk of the evening roaming around the AgCenter with my smooth talking, handgun waving ranger shooting pod people...

    What about the other three? And Angela "Easy Mode" Death?

     

    Installed Saints Row 4 a week ago, haven't got to it yet.

    You might as well, you can clear it in one weekend with time to spare.

  8. Calling Mass Effect a "cRPG" is fundamentally incorrect. It was clearly designed to be a console-oriented game.

     

    Besides, writing in video games is writing in video games. It's not like the writing in games of any given genre is something fundamentally different. Running through the village square shouting out your opinions on the crappiness of ME's overall story and its gaping plotholes is a great example of the idiom "beating a dead horse." In this case, you're just smacking a thoroughly liquefied puddle of former-horse.

     

    At this point there is no worthwhile reason to start threads to bring up years-old discussions which were exhausted years ago. After all, nihil novi sub sole. It's a virtual certainty that any idea you're eager to express on the subject has already been put forth by more than one person.

  9. Swarms of dreaded pests like rats and locusts. Sure, you're not going to do any immediate damage unless you're going all Dishonored up in this sheeeeeeeeeeit, but hey, you can wipe out a whole year's harvest or spread a virulent plague.

     

    I really hope that Rangers get animal companions with ranged attacks.  Or perhaps there will be some sort of stance system where if you hold you animal close to you and don't have them attack, you can get special bonuses.  I guess it will seem a bit like the Wizard familiars.  And since wizards, chanters and priests can cast melee summons, rangers should get familiars too =)

     

    Like...? Which animals have ranged attack capabilities? Some fish that spit water to knock bugs off of branches, frogs and chameleons with their sticky-ass tongues (not very long range.) That's about it. If your ranger has trouble knocking bugs into the Amazon, then you're onto something.

     

    The point of a ranger's animal companion is, from a systemic standpoint, to cover the ranger's weakness in close combat. They are really just bodyguards to try to keep enemies at a safe distance so the ranger can try to pincushion them in peace without detracting from the party's overall combat effectiveness.

  10.  

    Got pretty fed up with the Highpool voting debacle in Wasteland 2, so I've gone back to NV. Thinking of making a character based on Omar Little.

    Look man, I do what I can do to help y'all. But the game is out there, and it's either play or get played.

     

    I ain't never put my gun on nobody that wasn't in the game.

  11. So, given the logical infallibility of this product in classical economics... Butts. The value of imaaginary Kim Kardashian butts has proven to have real value (imagine the values of real Kim Kardashian butts; it's practically an entire economy in itself!)

     

    What's the purely rational, self-interested return on this? "I don't know" - Chicago/Austrian economists

     

    Welcome to the world of soft science! It's not math, it's not physics, it's not chemistry; it's politics masquerading as science.

  12.  

    The JRPGish combat

    Wait what

     

    Isn't JRPG combat usually turnbased? <_< I thought Inquisition looks more like every action rpg in existence, except that you can control whole party

     

    Not ragging on you, BrokenMask, but too lazy to lead from the post you've quoted.

     

    You know what's turn-based? X-COM. Wasteland 2. Monopoly. Parcheesi. Chess.

     

    If anyone can't handle the tactical depth of turn-based strategy they should stick to squirting as many zerglings as possible out of their imaginary zerg birth canals. You ****ing zerg ****. What a goddamn *****. You think you're going to impress your parents with that? They didn't spend their lives hoardng a dowry so you could zerg rush some guy on the internet, you know. How many goats does 1000 zerglings buy? Not a single one.

     

    NOT EVEN ONE GOAT.

  13. Neutrality is always more interesting than good or evil; "evil" is more simplistic than "good," and neutrality is closer to real human motivations than either. Forcing the game world to deal with the nigh-insurmountable whims of a chaotic neutral PC, that's what interests me. Not some [blank] Evil piece of garbage masquerading as a sentient organism, or a lawful good paladin of "justice," a real neutral party who is only interested in their own well-being. Those are the characters who are interesting.

     

    Like Bunk said in The Wire: "A Man must have a Code." That doesn't mean good or evil, it just means personally. If the people Omar was robbing weren't "in the game" he'd classify as evil, but instead they make him into neutral. Stealing from the pushers to give to the junkies and take the profits for yourself? Pure, brilliant, beautiful Neutral.

  14. I just saw the news,Dragon Age:Inquisition will have the stronghold(or something like that)and crafting system(extremely interesting,they said).

    So, You guys may have more pressures now,genius in Obidian. :devil: Who will win, Obsidian or Bioware? :devil: Who will design the most talented systems.

    Coolest story, brother. Not that I need to pay attention to anything but your OP since it is intended to challenge PoE's Kickstarter-backed features. I'm sure your creative heroes at EA will show Obsidian up with a plethora of romancable companions and thus win the war for Baldur's Gate's Legacy. Once the Legacy is unlocked, all of space and time belong to the owner, which must be Bioware/EA, of course. Cue sexually-themed insults at Obsidian from Bioware (fans of the presumably male gender, given traditional fields of excitement,) who are clearly not kindred spirits with similar interests, but irrevocable economic differences.

     

    Bioware will do phenomenal work on the next installment of The Sims which they have nothing to do with.

  15. http://peacemakergame.com/

     

    About:

    "PeaceMaker challenges you to succeed as a leader where others have failed. Experience the joy of bringing peace to the Middle East or the agony of plunging the region into disaster. PeaceMaker will test your skills, assumptions and prior knowledge. Play it and you will never read the news the same way again."

     

    I am currently downloading it so I can't review it yet. There is a different agenda with this game.

    "Pacemaker" would be more interesting, because, you know; middle-easterners dying from cultural conflict is old news and, thus, not entertaining to those of us who live in the "first world."

  16. As a person who has been cursed with American culture, I have to say, baseball is somehow far more entertaining than handegg (a.k.a "football" minus the feet and the ball except for occasional special occasions.) I'd rather fall asleep at a baseball game than stay awake for a whole handegg game. Tactics, schmactics. Sun Tzu would attack from the bleachers.

     

    Come on, you can't legitimately call it "football" when the one single player on the team who acually kicks the "ball" with his foot is the lowest ranked/least respected.

  17. Got murdered by a bunch of zambie boars in D:OS, don't feel any spite about it. Getting guilt-tripped by radio messages about ag-center stuff in Hghwater's various tunnels in Wasteland 2, trying hard to be callous and say "Vargas you're a stupid mother****er, if these chumps are so important, send some ****ing rangers to kill those stupid exploding plants." If Angela "death" Death can accompany the player then they must have decent level 8+ rangers to deal with those stupid bomb-plants.

     

    If not, just give up. Let the Brotherhood of Steel or Enclave invade the Wasteland universe through simple player will and cover the bases you can't. WHOOOOAAAA 4D EXISTENCE YOU JUST EXPERIENCED THE 4D WORLD BLEEP BLOOP BLORP GIVE ME MORE 30.06 AMMO SO I CAN SHOOT MORE THINGS
