  1. That's cool. I'm glad you folks are still working on it.
  2. My favorite turn-based RPG for the PS2 was Okage Shadow King. In case you've never played this early PS2 gem: It starts off with you and your sister going to the circus. She gets attacked by a ghost and comes down with a curse that only allows her to speak in pig latin. Your dad performs a ritual whereby your shadow is possessed by the evil king Stan in return for him removing the curse. You have to go around and eliminate a bunch of fake evil kings who have stolen Stan's powers so he can get them back. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Okage:_Shadow_King
  3. The difference between the Poker Night scenario, and this is that Telltale Poker Night (1) at the Inventory came out before the one that is on XBLIG. I'm no copyright lawyer, but they might need to call the game Double Fine Bad Golf 3. If the creator of Bad Golf (2010) on XBLIG doesn't want DF calling a game that, or wants too much money, there's always Bad Double Fine Golf 3.
  4. Wholegrain Nutrient Paste for me! It's the future of food. You also know it's healthier and fills you up more than regular Nutrient Paste, because it's WHOLEGRAINS!
  5. I originally voted for Mnemonic in the first round before changing it to Erras of Avventa (Kennedy Edition). I already voted for Bad Golf 2, Dear Leader then Mnemonic/Erras before I clicked on Steed, which I originally intended to be a must vote. Overall, thanks to the community Bad Golf game, I'm happy. I'll still vote for Bad Golf 3 next time though in a heartbeat. Hopefully the community game gets more people excited for that one next time.
  6. My votes: Dear Leader Steed Erra of Avventa (Kennedy Edition)
  7. It's natural that people who were expecting a DRM-free release for Act 1 would have been pissed off when in the beginning it was going to be Steam-only. It's an issue people can be very passionate about. And generally speaking, from what I seen a very small section of the Steam fan boys were the most extreme of the bunch. Either way, everyone can be happy now!
  8. BAD GOLF 2! BAD GOLF 2! BAD GOLF 2! I also voted for Dear Leader and Eras of Adventure. If by some miracle the money in my Pay Pal account clears in the next 5 hours, I would vote for Cupid as well.
  9. I concur. There are so many great ideas. I accidentally missed a "must vote". But not Bad Golf 2. I definitely didn't forget to vote for that. Forget Tiger Woods PGA Tour Golf, Bad Golf 2 could be the most fun, realistic Golf simulator out there. NOT EVERYONE IS A PRO, EA! I DON'T PLAY FOR MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN A TOURNAMENT, EA! I play for door prizes, and raffles. Booze + Cart = Fun!
  10. That is a very good name for a cat whom you want to send not-so subliminal messages to, to not be constipated.
  11. I wish there was a confirmation if you want to skip a scene. I missed the first maiden disappearing because of my buddy's stupid cat.
  12. I wonder if Miyamoto has heard of "Duke Nukem Forever". That was a special case, though. George Broussard had no idea what kind of game he wanted to make. He didn't have a cohesive story or gameplay plan in place. He just kept wanting to copy the next popular gaming trend. The game kept being redesigned with these new trends in mind over and over (instead of breaking new ground) and went nowhere for almost 12 years. I don't think Tim suffers from this lack of vision. Plus they're not on their third different engine for the game. That helps too. I asked them there at the time when they switched to Unreal if they at least had the game done on paper. I got no answer. The importance of pre-production... At the end of the day, I hope they get the game done that they want to for Act 2 (assuming it's all on paper by now, and it's just a matter of getting it coded & whatever artwork is left) and not feel as though they need to cut content just to get it out by a certain day. Money issues I could see, but not for a release date.
  13. The problem with that list was; many of the games (basically all the non-indies, and then some) used Steam's old form of DRM before the current iteration of CEG. Well, they decided last year to go over and update the security of those games (replace old DRM with current CEG.) Now you need to be logged in to play them. Believe me, I know. KOTOR 1&2, Civilizations 3 and Puzzle Quest 2 got hit on me, and all of a sudden I couldn't play them two weeks after I brought my computer in to put Shadowrun on it. I bought those specifically on Steam just after I found out that its offline mode was buggy so I could play them after it lost my login info. I was pissed.
  14. To answer your question, I'll go to this image I posted in the Leaked Beta thread To me, the P$ Pain in the butt dollars for Steam is through the roof. It also usually ends up infringing on my T$ Time dollars because of when it happens. This isn't just the annoyance of having to bring my computer into town (including monitor, keyboard, mouse & maybe speakers) so I can hook it up to the internet there so my computer can log on to the client's server to download the game. I wouldn't mind doing it every once in a while to put new games on my computer that require DRM. I could do it at my own leisure. I have no real objections to Origin & Uplay for this reason. It's a bit more annoying than DRM-free, but once it's on there, I'm free to play it whenever I want. Offline mode works perfectly for those two. I can keep my computer at home for months on end, and it doesn't effect my games on those clients. Steam on the other hand is different. I was only getting 2 weeks at a time before it lost my info, and I couldn't play my games that contained CEG, which is most of them. Until recently, I used to work 12 hour shifts. I never really played games on the days I worked, because I was too tired with my other duties. That is 7 of the 14 days gone right there that Steam let me play my games. I usually also had my kids for 4 or 5 of those remaining days. I would only get to play games after they went to bed. That left 2 or 3 days all to myself. That is the same amount of time I left before Steam would lose my info and not let me play my games. Chances are, I'm not getting a good sized game done in that time. I was finished with them last spring because of this. Before keeping it at my friends, I brought it in last for Shadowrun, and didn't get a chance to really get into it. 99% of my objections to Steam will go away once they fix their offline mode and stop being a pain in the butt to me. EDIT: It will never beat the convenience of just putting it on a flash drive, and taking it home to install it like DRM-free, but at least it could be done at my leisure.
  15. I was just glad that I clicked on the fruits my first time by the tree. Otherwise I would have got stuck on the Riddle of Yorn
  16. I spent the longest time of any puzzle figuring out that the bird would let me pass it before I found its egg. I was expecting the same thing as the (golden or brown?) bird with the golden egg at the far right and up section of the clouds. I probably spent 45 minutes or so figuring out that it would let me past. Funny what we can get stuck on, eh?
  17. Both were good. Since it's all part of the same story, it's hard for me to like one over the other since they were both so good.
  18. It's kinda common sense that you can't just start a post and advertise on a board that isn't basically like a classified ad board like Craig's List. Many will allow you to put something in your signature, but that's usually it.
  19. You forgot: 2a) Take computer home 3a) Buggy offline mode craps out after a few weeks tops. Can't play game again. 3b) Drive 25 mins to take computer back into place with reliable internet connection. 3c) Log back in to Steam just so I can play my games again. 3d) Repeat Step 2a. I'm done with this. Hopefully you folks do the right thing. I'm just glad I happened to be keeping my computer at a friends place when this came out so I could play it. I really wish companies wouldn't lock their single player games down to the only DRM client with a buggy offline mode. Have 'em on there by all means. Beta test them there too. But don't lock 'em down there.
  20. We'll be in space and all of our entertainment will be displayed with holograms; so it will be long forgotten along with anything else that requires a "screen."
