  1. Holy crap. You've got quite the amazing talent--scratch that, talentS!
  2. I was commenting more on the visuals than the controls. A real person holding a sword, or even just having a sword sheathed at the hip, moves and walks with a gait, swings their arms, etc, that is essentially matched by the sword held in his/her hand or attached to his/her hip. My guess is people aren't going to play the game standing up and walk on the spot so that Link is going to walk around holding/moving the sword with a natural gait.
  3. I found Link's movements to be a little awkward looking, especially when he has the sword out. Watching the E3 video where Miyamoto is demonstrating the game, there's a few scenes where Link runs around with the sword held upwards in the air, stiff as a pole.
  4. This is such a fun, party sounding mix! I can just imagine the little animal townfolk just party in the streets to this =D
  5. Long rope + Small helicopter = 99% of all puzzles solved
  6. I've seen other players wait around with the lance to poke Barroth here and there every once in a while. But I've found it a bit more engaging dodging for your life with a greatsword in hand =P I'm slowly making my way in trying out all the weapons. I want to try out the bowgun but the fact that I would need to forge a bowgun plus a bowgun armour set makes me want to procrastinate.
  7. You would think that, but I found that the Barroth moves too fast. While a lancer could easily just block the Barroth's attacks without flinching, I've always found myself struggling to keep up with the thing to do any damage to it.
  8. I've found that the online item trading (the fish monger lady in Luc Loc) often produces the best results if you never sell anything you carve/gather. There are often amazing deals for rare items, items used in common and useful combinations, and so on.
  9. From what I remember reading, most of the hate was in the Japanese reception of the game. Well, Square-Enix has been working on digging deeper into the North American market...
  10. Reminds me of a review of FF13 that suggested the character designs specifically cater to cosplayers.
  11. Honestly, that massive hat was one of the reasons I didn't win sooner, I couldn't see in front of me!
  12. Playing as the boss for 3-3 was the first time I ever got involved in PvP in the game. I was so confused when I warped in and had the yellow scarf covering my head but I eventually figured out the trick the game pulled before the other player reached the boss area. It turned out to be such an awesome fight too. My build was a swashbuckler type of character: focusing on dodging while working with rapier and shield. I faced a guy who's build seemed to be a standard heavy armour, sword, and shield outfit. The two of us spent so much time going at each other. I was able to dodge his attacks easily but he was able to use healing herbs between taking my hits. Both of us had some magic but not enough to do decent harm to each other. Eventually, though, I was able to force him in a corner and my rapier turned him into a pin cushion. Such an awesome game.
  13. I've known about this for a while and cannot wait. I always loved how Alice wasn't a blonde in this game. Not sure why. But she looks great with black hair.
  14. I always did find it a little unnerving how Valkyria Chronicles made war cute.
  15. I'm thinking about building myself a new computer from scratch but it's been about 5 years since I've done so and all these dang fangled new CPU/GPU/mobo brands and labels confuse me. I don't suppose you mind giving me some advice as what pieces go with what other pieces based on price point would you?
  16. I never saw District 9 in theatres but I am greatly anticipating seeing it on Blu-Ray.
  17. Of the games you listed, I've played and can definitely recommend Dead Space. It's a very polished game, plays like Resident Evil 4/5, but in a much more sci-fi setting. Great horror atmosphere too.
  18. $33 a person... What's the original price? $45 to pre-order?! I'll jump in on the 4 pack too.
  19. I can (poorly) play some of the soundtrack on the violin.
  20. I haven't played the game myself but I've heard a bit of the music and enjoyed. Really, though, I'd give it to my girlfriend who's a bigger fan than I am. Thing is, I'm in Ontario, Canada. If you'd consider giving it to me, I'd be willing to help pay for shipping in that case.
  21. The obvious simple solution to that is that man's existence is not fake, but the link/reference/relation to him in the C&D is.
  22. Personally, I didn't find university too diffiuclt (went to UofTM). If you've got a solid head on your shoulders that you can understand the concepts being taught, the most difficult thing facing you will be organizing your time and keeping in close communication with your professors/teaching assistants. Keeping a schedule is important, especially when you near the end of term and have so many assignments due in the same week. Procrastinating is one of your greatest enemies and getting work done early will save you a lot of grief. If possible, take courses in the summer terms so you can space things out. Having even one class less in the regular term can give you a lot of free time. When you are given your assignments, pay very close attention to the syllabus. Don't be afraid to pester/ask your professor/TAs very specific questions on what they expect your assignment to be/turn out. Ask for examples from previous classes, sample questions, and so on. Each professor/TA has a differen idea of the perfect assignment so be sure to figure out what they are exactly for each of them!
  23. My grandmother loves the Lawrence Welk show.
  24. I've also been thinking about picking up the keyboard/piano since (I think) it won't require me to twist my fingers and wrists like playing the violin does--and thus making it a better instrument to ease into music theory with. Any suggestions for good, cheap keyboards?
  25. Wow. Music's great! Totally downloading that sound track.
