  1. There's nothing quite as satisfying as when you get the Commando trait, take your combat shotgun out, and time your headshot (With VATS or in real life, which is awesome- yay for learning how to awp whore) for the time when the super mutant running at you falls headless with the bloodstains just reaching your feet. But right now, all I wants is mah sheriff hat, Winchester, and Dogmeat bah mah side, walkin to the sunset...
  2. I can't help but be a god damned goody two shoes. I was about to swear harder but realised this isn't Offtop and Fallout 3 isn't the real world where people swear every 3 seconds. But I love the verisimilitude! It's like Oblivion, but way funner! And I LOVE Oblivion!
  3. That there is an In Universe explanation as to why all female character models in Star Wars games dress like porn stars (Jan Ors being the exception) shows why I prefer Star Trek. Yes, I include Bastila Shan. Just because the woman shits me.
  4. Looks great for an afternoon staring at hot blonde chick's rack, (And it's good to know she's actually modelled on an actual woman, which means I have to find out who this "Nathalie Cox" and her sexy British accent is, and beating up stormtroopers. But it's not exactly something that asks you interesting questions, does it? I always thought that Bioware really knew how to impart some sort of interesting choice into how you played- Of course, Deus Ex did it best. Did you sneak into the Statue of Liberty? Or did you blow the shit out of everyone? When you played Mass Effect or NWN or BG, did you judge in that haunted castle, or did you give mercy? Did you hold the human fleet behind, dooming millions to death, or rush in and doom just as many just to save them? Before I learnt that being good actually got you heaps of rewards (More than being evil), Bioshock really made me sit up and take notice in the moral choices you made in a very similar manner. Star Wars is perfect for this kind of question to be asked of the player. Here, you know how the story ends. But I always liked Jedi Knight 1- because you made choices and those choices mattered. But anyways- it looks like a lot of fun. When I have time I think I'll get a copy. Edit: Minor bitch, but why does Lucasarts think it's necessary for a highly decorated, model Imperial navy flight officer who otherwise acts in a completely professional way to wear a non-standard uniform that shows off cleavage? For God's sake, not all of us are 14 year old boys and need cleavage to know she's the bloody love interest.

    Soul Calibur IV

    My best characters in Soul Cal are Xianghua, Mitsurugi and Taki. There's pretty much no similarity in how they play. Except I get a lot more angry and shout incomprehensibly when I am playing as mitsurugi.

    Soul Calibur IV

    They're simply catering for the nerdy fanboy demographic.

    Soul Calibur IV

    Your friends forgot to know how to Eight Way Run, air control, and most importantly, block. Also your new friend probably chose Maxi because he's the only character I know whom button mashing generally pulls of excellent combos. It sometimes looks like I'm button mashing if I use Taki or Xianghua, but that's because they need long chains of very fast moves to deal any significant damage.
  8. I've always preferred SC to Tekken, simply because as improbable as the story is, it's infinitely better than Tekken's. I've also had a massive fanboy crush on Xianghua which has been running almost as long as my fanboy crush on Yuna, but I digress. Soul Cal IV, I fear, is making the massive mistake that Tekken did in including a bajillion main characters. It gets seriously boring after a while when you notice that half the characters in Tekken have similar moves (Some are literally the same.) Sure there are minor differences in what Ms. Monteiro does compared to Eddy, but seriously, they both do Capoiera and both, in my hands, will be kick spamming (But chained Kick spamming! I learnt the combos!) until you're dead. Same for the entire Mishima family, and I'm not even going to go into the blatant rip offs of characters who are simply other characters for no reason (Marshall/Forrest Law, the Changs, the Williams sisters, and the female Kazamas, to name a few.) Soul Cal used to do it right. If you wanted a Sophie style character, you got Cassandra, and Sophie wasn't in the game. The big guy with an axe was either Rock or Astaroth, not both. Siegfried wasn't there because Nightmare did what he did (Although Soul Cal III did an admirable job of changing their chains so they played differently.) And although Kilik and Seung Mina play nothing alike, you had one or the other because of the pole arms. I suppose it's easier to make different play styles when you're allowed to use weapons, but I sincerely hope the new characters are wild and crazy and still functional. Unlike Mardok. What a bloody loser. He doesn't even have an aussie accent. I sincerely hope they didn't just throw in the Fan Service in Soul Cal IV just so everyone can "play their favourite character!" It was already hard enough to find your character in SC III, what with all the stupid bonus characters. Also, I still reckon I can murder you all with Xianghua. She's like a monkey on crack.
  9. Obviously the real Clown Prince of Crime did not think too highly of Mr Ledger's performance. That or he was very pleased. It's hard to tell with the man.

    "Good news. I figured out what that thing you just incinerated did. It was a morality core they installed after I flooded the enrichment center with a deadly neurotoxin to make me stop flooding the enrichment center with a deadly neurotoxin. So get comfortable, while I warm up the neurotoxin emitters." "2+2 is… 10… in base four." "There was even going to be a party for you. A big party that all your friends were invited to. I invited your best friend the companion cube. Of course, he couldn't come because you murdered him. All your other friends couldn't come either because you don't have any other friends because of how unlikable you are. It says so here in your personnel file: Unlikable. Liked by no one. A bitter, unlikable loner whose passing shall not be mourned. SHALL. NOT. BE. MOURNED. That's exactly what it says. Very formal. Very official. It also says you're adopted, so that's funny too." "Look - we're both stuck in this place. I'll use lasers to inscribe a line down the center of the facility, and one half will be where you live, and I'll live in the other half. We won't have to try to kill each other or even talk if we don't feel like it." This must be what SHODAN is like if she had the Girl's sense of humour. And Petulance. I loled. I am still lolling.
  11. Juno is better. And sickly funnier. Just throwing that out there.
  12. I cried. It was... Beautiful. I remember when I was new and people talked about a "Golden Age". sigh.
  13. Is this is response to my thread? Here was my main argument. For some reason, American songs lost their heart recently, even just a few years ago. Not so long ago Billie Holliday and Don McLean ruled the airwaves... you could get something good from Dusty Springfield- even the most trite of things like a woman saying she likes em shy and innocent- there was, in the music, something that, as Carlos Santana said, "took you to another place." I think the best song ever made is American Pie- just the lyrics themselves have a depth to them that sings of the American music scene and history. These are all pop songs. Ten years ago, you could release "You Oughta Know" and expect it to sell millions. And it did- because it was Good. Even Alanis Morrisette is the last of a dying breed really- who actually sang about something. Pop music nowadays- they sing something reminiscent of something, but they don't sing ABOUT it. It's hard to explain. That's why I say "it has no heart." Mainstream rock still has heart. Pop? heh. Even Ms. Morisette is more of a rocker chick than a pop singer. Edit: Here, I thought about it for a while... consider England and British Pop. Now some of it is absolute trash, but you do get excellent examples like "Rehab" from Amy Winehouse, or the stuff from Basement Jaxx, which I know is more dance but there you have it.
  14. Hard Fact: There is a subliminal message in "Milkshake," in which throughout Kelis sounds like a slut.
  15. Ps: This is breaking forum rules (I think) but it needs to be stressed.
  16. I thought Date movie was amusing.
  17. To answer the question: The course and class in the story are not real. But the basic situation IS: It was me, in class, and the day I first noticed my Partner in Crime, who thought I was a dirty pervert. Who is now the girl. The exam situation was ALSO real but with a slight twist- we talked after that exam and had a drink over it- and the rest is history.
  18. Reposting my competition story: Literary Technique- http://www.writing.com/main/view_item/item_id/1199017
  19. I've been told by Zircon that I can resurrect the Story thread in OffTop. While we're waiting, it's hanging out in Unmod.org. I think, however, that Doulifee's site will become the MAIN archive, and the two threads here and on .org will be "feeders" to that site. And the Main Plot COULD take into fact already that Unmod gets completely wasted- instead of just conquering it, Jendisc can violently annex the place. Just hang in there, and keep the dream alive!
  20. Electric Lady Land- Fantastic Plastic Machine Only if you want your sex fun and ironic!
  21. Hey, these are actually nice pictures. Yay for convention stuff! Rama's DS is also worth x1000000 now.
  22. Why are we fading away? No one makes me fade away. Ban, kill, destroy, maybe, but never fade.
