  1. *Puts hand up*. I love the sound of fresh strings. Not good enough to write anything, just use it to play whatever nice song I hear.
  2. Quite a few of em floating around in my head. The one that stands out the most is Stargoose cuz I remember playing it quite often. Super Mario Bros and the very first Zelda are also tucked in my memory but I'm not sure which of the three came first.
  3. I'm 24 and can hear all the tones (with headphones on though, can only go up to 20 with speakers).
  4. A lot of those mixes were quite awesome indeed.
  5. Wasn't a huge fan of XII so I have low expectations for XIII. Many of these early reviews are getting caught up on how linear the game is but I personally couldn't give a stuff about that. I can't remember a single open world game that had a storyline I could remember. What I am worried about though is the battle mechanic, I didn't like it in XII so I don't have high hopes here. Though I'd have to admit, part of the reason I didn't like XII was because the storyline didn't catch me and I didn't enjoy the music (not that Sakimoto hasn't done an awesome job in other games). If those were better I would've put up with the battle mechanic and seeing as XIII's story seems more epic and the music a lot better, hopefully I'll be happy. I'll still get it on the first day, just hope it's money well spent.
  6. Freespace 2 is a darn pretty game even before the source code project. But yeh, can't go wrong with Freespace. The thing about space sims is, the genre died out a while ago. Will rarely find any of em nowadays and even if you do, a lot of the time they're just not awesome enough to merit playing. You'll have to settle with older space sims if you want the good ones.
  7. Now that is very impressive.
  8. Screw giving, I'm buying myself some games.
  9. Depends on how queer the males look. The best example I think thing of are probably the Paragons in Guild Wars. They run around with a fair bit of skin showing and I'd prefer not to be looking at that all day. Apart from that, it's usually a male though there are some circumstances I'll choose a female toon for no good reason.
  10. PC version annoys me somewhat having to pause the game all the time to micromanage and all. Seeing as there are only a limited number of tactical slots, can't let the AI tactics take care of both the healing and attacking. It does work better than the FFXII system though, hated that one. Also wish there was an interface customisation option. I'm not too good at paying attention to the battle and the party's health bars at the same time.
  11. Been staring at the steam page for a while deciding whether I want it or not. Just doesn't appeal to me for some reason. Dunno, guess I'm just sorta over the whole medieval fantasy genre or something.
  12. Gamespot, IGN, 1UP, Actiontrip and Kotaku.
  13. Haha, that's so true. I'd probably kill myself if that happened to all FPS's though, part of the reason I'm still a PC gamer is because I don't like aiming with a controller. In terms of this whole fiasco, this whole thing is an obvious fail (despite some of you seemingly defending it on its "merits" which confuses me slightly) but I don't think there's much point in debating it, Activision are pricks and they're gonna implement it regardless. Maybe back in the day when PC gamers ruled, yeh, complaining about it would've brought about change but 1. this is activition and 2. there aren't enough hardcore PC gamers who care left in the world to change their minds. Truth is, a good chunk of PC gamers nowadays will accept it regardless whether it be because they're too young to remember the days when PC gaming was awesome or because they just don't care anymore. Even the gaming media don't care anymore. Example - when was the last time anyone reviewed the PC version of a multiplatform game first? Not for a long time, that's when. I'm gonna ignore the game (or at most not bother buying it until it's cheap) not because I'm trying a futile boycott but because it'll stop me from getting pissed off. No point whining about a game you don't own right? (at least for me anyway). As of this moment in time, I couldn't give a rat's ass if Activision and IW just gave up making games for the PC altogether.
  14. These guys haven't been very kind to PC gamers lately, this is a bit of a last straw for me. Don't think I'll be getting the game unless it's on sale somewhere.
  15. Glad to see this game finally get a mix and one heck of a mix with some big names behind it. Love it.
  16. Electronica, rock (sort of, my love for rock was already starting to gather momentum before that) and VG music in general. Deus Ex and Unreal Tournament were the two that kicked it off.
  17. 2002 I think was the first time I bumped into the site.
  18. I love being an Australian gamer. Our government keeps our minds so well protected by not giving games an R rating. Inconsistency you say? NO, not the OFLC, they'll never give one game a rating of MA which is clearly more brutal and violent than a game they just banned. Of course it's ok to have an R rating for movies and not games, it's not like the average age of gamers in Australia is 30 or anything. The OFLC knows EXACTLY what's best for us...... I fucking hate the OFLC.
  19. You can wall her off. Use a bridge ladder as a bridge to get you and the knight across and let the knight do his thing. Next, summon a wall. Wait until she's right up against the left wall and then place the wall you just summoned right next to her. Now, put that bridge ladder from before on top of both walls which will serve as both a bridge to get across to the princess and a lid to keep the witch from doing anything to you. Now use a trampoline to get up to the second level. Use the trampoline again to get up the wall and cross the bridge ladder to the princess. Voila, 3 moves. Because the AI is a bit of a retard when it comes to following you, it might be a bit fiddly getting the knight to jump on the trampoline with you. Also, the knight has a habit of bumping the bridge ladder so that the witch gets exposed but this method works 8/10.
  20. Was shocked when I found out yesterday, actually looked like he was going to beats the odds. Really sad that and so young too. May the guy RIP.
  21. I tried to push a door once that clearly said pull. Someone had to open it for me.
  22. Good to see these guys get a lot of attention. I remember goin to see their stuff at my uni when they were just starting out. Mitsuda seems to make a yearly appearance now which is also good to see. Regret not going when they had Uematsu as a special guest.
  23. Nice stuff. I might as well chime in with something too:
