  1. Frazetta's art is truly awesome stuff, and I have no doubt that people decades from now will be admiring his work. I can't imagine what games like Brutal Legend would've looked like if it weren't for his influential artwork.
  2. I play Audiosurf every now and then, although I'm not competitive at all... it's just a good way to relax.
  3. The bug things SUCK. It took me probably two hours to get through those stupid tunnels my first time through 2-2. There actually is a shortcut to the boss (although this is Demon's Souls, so it involves a lot of huge drops that will kill you if not aimed perfectly). If you turn right at the first fork in the stage, you'll eventually get to a pit that has ledges and platforms leading down, and hopefully some messages left by other players to guide you. Even with messages, there's a lot of trial and error the first time you do it, so if you want to try the shortcut, you might want to spend all your souls first. As for Flamelurk himself, I play a pure melee character, and my first time through I couldn't do it without summoning other players to help. I really wish I had better advice than that.
  4. The PS2 had a 64-bit processor. Anyway, I'm cautiously excited about this. I absolutely love Okami, and from the few released screens of Okamiden, it looks like they've done a really good job keeping the style of the original despite the technical downgrade. However, it's hard to expect much when none of the original team is involved in a sequel.
  5. I agree completely It happened so suddenly, too... I never got a chance to do one last goodbye zombie raid on Stormwind.
  6. HH Mount dropped for me today. I rolled an 8.
  7. Put in spoiler-text for the courtesy of others: You can temporarily solidify them using Concrete Shot. More detailed strategy follows in next paragraph if you're still stuck. Come up the ladder, wait for the bottom one to stop, hop onto the lower platform in the middle, wait for the bottom one to shoot by and stop again, jump onto the right side, fire Concrete Shot when the bottom lava beam gets near you. Then hop onto it, face right, and fire concrete shot at the next beam before it gets to you. Hop onto that one, fire a shot on the topmost beam, jump onto it, and make your way to the ladder closest to you. It's incredibly tricky to get the timing down, but you'll get it eventually. Hope that helps!
  8. It starts out kind of slow (the "video blog" portion feels forced and awkward - just like most video blogs, I suppose, haha) but once the first song starts it really picks up. Only other complaint is that Penny (played by the awesome Felicia Day from The Guild) is kind of a one-dimensional character. Other than that, I'm absolutely loving it, and can't wait for Act 3. And really, how could I say no to anything with Nathan Fillion in it?
  9. Hahaha, I remember the same exact thing happening before. I think it was over Devil May Cry 4. They even started an internet petition! BETTER WATCH OUT!
  10. I agree that this is the kind of thing the Wii remote should've had all along, and it's good to see Nintendo responding to some criticism. I haven't really played a game where the motion sensing was totally fun. It was neat in Wii Sports, but the novelty wore off after that. Even in games that I love, like Zack & Wiki, it feels like a crapshoot on whether or not the game will actually recognize what you're doing. Hopefully this will help.
  11. The trailer was awesome. The music definitely didn't disappoint, and the game is looking like everything I could've hoped it to be. I can't wait!

    Diablo III

    People will complain about anything. Blizzard definitely looks to be on the right track with Diablo 3, in spite of the vocal minority who are afraid of colors other than brown.
  13. http://kotaku.com/5019986/old-school-mega-man-9-coming-to-wiiware This has some information on it. BASICALLY it's pretty much the most awesome thing in the world. Sure, they're pandering to the nostalgic crowd... but it's still awesome!
  14. My main is a resto druid. I love healing instances, and it's fun in PvP as well. If I'm holding a node in AB, I can have four guys wailing on me and I'll usually be able to hold out long enough for some backup to arrive. Good fun! Unless one of those guys is a lock with a felhunter. DAMN those things are annoying.
  15. You seriously can't go wrong with the Ace Attorney games, although they might be tough to get ahold of. Hotel Dusk is another great visual novel, although it's not as good as the Ace Attorney series. Professor Layton's worth looking into if she likes puzzles. Along the same lines, I'd recommend Picross DS (I'd recommend Layton over Picross though, since it has a really awesome art style, an entertaining story, and a lot of diversity in puzzles, whereas Picross is pretty much a one-trick pony... if she likes Sudoku, she'll probably like Picross.) I'd also like to ANTI-RECOMMEND the world ends with you. It's a great game, for sure, but I don't think it's a good choice for a casual gamer. I never go anywhere without my DS and I'm terrible at it; I don't think the average casual gamer would take the time to get past the learning curve.
  16. Well, I think it's a cool idea. Only problem is that it kind of falls flat upon execution because it's boring to watch; merely an unfortunate consequence of the rules he laid down for himself, since they pretty much require each fight to drag on and force him to just be jumping and dodging 90% of the time. Overall, it must've been a lot of fun mastering each boss, but it's not really something visually exciting enough for the average viewer to actually want to watch in its entirety, I think. That being said, I think you might have gold on your hands if you cut each boss fight down to a couple seconds of brief highlights. And replaced the music with yakety sax. (I just watched some of the mega man 2 video with yakety sax playing, and I can confirm that yes, with a bit of punchy editing, it would be awesome.)
  17. Hey guys check out this hat I bought, you'll never guess how much it cost
  18. I agree; I always buy eVGA cards. I also like that their packaging doesn't look like 90% of all video card packaging, with like, metallic cyborg CG chicks with wires coming out of their heads.
  19. Wow, that's almost as bad as the level 70 Warrior I came across the other day who didn't know what "tanking" was. (And I don't mean he was an arms/fury warrior who was trying to tank but failing; I mean that he was looking for a Magister's Terrace group, and when I PM'd him to ask if he could tank, his response was "wut is tank.") You can always tell when people who've never played the game beforee have bought/traded their accounts, and it can cause a lot of headaches for other people. But I don't think there'll be problems if mephisto gives it to someone who's had experience playing Guild Wars in the past.
  20. Thanks for the replies! Dhsu's solution fixed it.
  21. My girlfriend's been having a problem with her microphone when using ventrilo. It picks up her voice just fine, but it also sends out whatever sounds her PC's outputting (for example, when playing WoW, the rest of the arena team hears what she's saying, but we also get the background music and the sounds of her stabbing people, as well as resending what anyone else is saying if they're talking at the same time). She wears headphones, so it's not something ridiculously trivial like just needing to move the mic away from speakers . She hasn't been able to find any answers online so far, and I figured OCR would be a good place to check, since it's an audio issue.
  22. I recently started reading Dune, and I've been enjoying it. Unfortunately, school started getting really busy shortly after I started, so I don't have as much time to spend reading as I'd like If you end up liking Stephenson's writing style, be sure to check out Cryptonomicon. It's not as wildly popular as Snow Crash, but I ended up liking it a lot more.
