  1. I'm actually with Alexrd on this one. I found the follow feature in HGSS annoying and contradictory to the titular concept of the franchise. It is, however, not my biggest issue in HGSS. That would be the horrendous level scaling, something I hope but highly doubt will be fixed in ORAS.
  2. It took me a good few minutes to realize that this wasn't some sick, late April Fools joke. They may not have been my absolute favorite Pokemon games, I'm still going to need, not want, NEED these. Minor nitpick however: I think the Greek letters should've been switched around because Alpha Ruby and Omega Sapphire roll off the tongue better. I know why they are the way they are, but I find it easier to say the other way.
  3. I call BS on that title in the spoiler video. Nothing's been confirmed on that, and I doubt anything will be until at least around Thanksgiving this year.
  4. While I admit I was a bit dismayed when I first heard, I think I'll go with what Astor suggested and have a Star Wars multiverse going on in my head.
  5. Pretty much what everyone else has said. Their loss. They're entitled to their opinions, however wrong they may be or however much it makes them look like a bunch of poop heads.
  6. I enjoyed Into Darkness as well. Not my absolute favorite Trek film, but it's up there in my top 5.
  7. Rocksteady is back, all of Gotham is the map, and you can drive the Batmobile?
  8. I've never been a Sonic fan, but I'll take the original three over anything that's been put out since. Not out of nostalgia, but because all the ones I have played have been poopy. I'll be keeping an eye on this one though.
  9. There's next to no post-game. I haven't touched it since I beat the League.
  10. Then you're in for a long time taking. The gap between the first two gyms is overwhelmingly massive and highly unusual for gym distribution.
  11. Really, any of the most devoted fans for any franchise or company are guilty of this. Bioware, Blizzard, Star Wars, you name it.
  12. She's getting old, and this happens every other month now.
  13. Dragon Age: Inquisition Titanfall Thief Diablo III: Reaper of Souls Destiny The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Watch Dogs Halo 5 or whatever the heck they're gonna call it The Evil Within
  14. Signed up for the beta. Looking forward to this.
  15. I thought the same, but weren't Han and Leia sifting through a list of nearby systems that they could jump to without too much trouble?
  16. After getting through the intro of the first game, I quit complaining about how slow the intros for Dragon Age: Origins (upon leaving Ostagar) and Mass Effect (everything until you leave the Citadel) were. I haven't played it much since I left Kaer Morhen because I have to take it in tiny chunks at a time, but I love what little I've done.
  17. I kinda want in on the midichlorian argument, but I also don't want to. Lynk pretty much said everything I wanted to say. And I've been here long enough to learn that I (me only, y'all knock yourselves out with it) should avoid arguing with Alexrd. I also saw someone mention the RedLetterMedia reviews. As crude as they are, and I also see a lot of hate on them, I do agree with them. 1. ESB 2. ANH 3. RotJ 4. RotS 5. AotC 6. TPM
  18. I loathe the whole "It was all a dream" trope, but I think I would've made an exception for the Indoctrination Theory.
  19. Did a bit of digging, and found that not only did Hudson and Walters handle the ending, but they wouldn't let the other writers do a little peer review. As a writer, I have to say that peer review is absolutely necessary to writing a story, especially one on as grand a scale as Mass Effect, in order for it to be good. In my creative writing class last semester, my writings that were peer reviewed got much higher grades than the ones that weren't. If Mass Effect 3's ending had been peer reviewed, we wouldn't even be having this discussion.
  20. Hudson wouldn't have had to lie about it if he had simply let the writers handle then ending, which he reportedly didn't do.
  21. That's not how I feel about it. Plain and simple.
  22. Currently, World of WarCraft, Natural Selection 2, Path of Exile, and The Old Republic. Come Christmas, I'll be wasting my time on a 2DS with Pokemon Y.
  23. Indeed. That's why when it comes to emotional impact, ME3 is my favorite of the trilogy. I don't despise the ending (or, at least, the EC - the vanilla ending is pretty bad), but it was definitely very unsatisfying. I can think of other games that had vomit-inducing endings, but we must not speak of them for they don't exist.
