No gamestop taxation without female representation!

I just finished Omega and Leviathan for the first time too. As far as DLC goes, I liked them both a lot, Omega more than Leviathan as it reminded me more of Mass Effect 2. I kind of liked Aria and Nyreen far better than the majority of your Mass Effect 3 crew.

 

Citadel I did last year when I played through last summer, and I have to say I thought it was awful. A real piece of shit. All my favorite characters were reduced to comedic representations. The party was pretty bad, and the characters felt like they were written by fans (which I think was the idea). I really didn't like it at all.

 

From Ashes is the first DLC I had, and I have to agree, the game loses something major without Javik. He is about the best character in ME3.

 

I still wish your group in 3 could have been something like Garrus and Tali, Miranda, Ashley, Legion, Thane, Grunt, Javik, Jack (if we have to, I know SOMEONE out there likes her), Jacob (so we have someone annoying to stay stupid shit), and of course Wrex. Mordin I really want, but his arc in 3 is pretty great as is.

 

That's my biggest problem with 3 right there, I would have forgiven the ending for a squad like that.

Jack might be my favorite video game character ever.
I'm shocked at the amount of negative feedback that character gets.

Pillars of Eternity gameplay video.

 

Looks solid for a new Infinity Engine experience, but a bit more 2D than I think people were expecting. I think there may a fear of Divinity: Original Sin (which cost slightly less to make) making PoE look a little tired visually when it comes out, although I expect PoE to have stronger writing.

Has anyone played the Banner Saga?  I just got this yesterday and am engrossed in the story(Combination of Vikings, GoT, and Dragon Age: Origins).  It helps that the animation style pretty much looks just like the old Dragon's Lair/ Space Ace games.

Yes. It's very good, but incredibly tough.

Hmmm... so the implication is if we agree to give up female representation they might abolish tax on games?

 

Intriguing...

 

:P

Mount And Blade:  Warband is just the funnest fucking thing.

 

There is of course a game of thrones/asoiaf mod for it called Clash Of Kings [spoiler:  there's a shit-ton of mods for Mount and Blade, period] and I downloaded it but I haven't even bothered with it yet because honestly the base game is close enough to everything I would want in an unlicensed Game Of Thrones simulator (right down to even some of the Sigils/Banners you pick as a noble being very close to some of our favorite Westeros devices).

 

I don't even feel like I'm really good at it yet and am still having a blast even doing the things I've figured out how to do decently.

I'd give up my right to vote for my local congressman/senator if that damn tea tax would be lifted. ;)

Alternately, I'm tempted to dress up like a video game character and dump some congressmen into the harbor.

Nah - I think we're just bored and spouting nonsense for the hell of it (me especially). :)

 

But... I assume you pay tax on games already - sales tax. That's all I was referring to. (I'm Aussie - so I pay GST. Same thing)

Awww.. that's too bad. I was loving the idea of some tool politician confronting a very irate Mario, haha.

I've bought alot of games recently, some for myself and some for my brothers. The one I'm currently playing (on a PS3) is Vanquish and so far its awesome. By the way, can anyone recommend a good but cheap sound system to buy? My TV's speakers are messed up.

Picked up Injustice: Gods Among Us for $8 on the PSN sale.  Been wanting to pick it up since the MKX announcement.  Once Destiny week is over, Harley and I are going to kick some ass.

The genius of Javik is his comments on all this new modern stuff which is inferior to the prothean cycle and also the scathing comments towards the current races. For instance when he muses that Salarins used to lick their eyes and eat flies

Browncoats unite!

The entire cast of Firefly is reuniting for the online game. I don't know if the game will be any good or not, but I'd be tempted to get it just to hear Mal, Kaylee, and Inara one more time. :crying:
