I wouldn't recommend Dark Souls or Demon's Souls in that case.

Not really, I'm sure it would have just sucked me in and consumed me. I have the addictive personality where I would've just sunk my entire life into EQ like I did with WoW for a long time until it got awful. I'm pretty much incapable of playing those games casually because I always want to be on bleeding edge.

The bleeding edge of WoW is like a six foot wide ledge compared to EQ. Seriously, there's no comparison to EQ vanilla or RoK. PoP was the ultimate cock block given what you had to do to "flag" for the elementals. I was lucky to be in the server's uber guild since forever and we had the elementals all to ourselves for six months. Even then the first competition only got to PoF and we had the other elementals to ourselves for another few months.

And yes, the ending sucked. It was on its way to becoming one of my favorite games until the last 10-15 minutes when it all unravels into a steaming pile of nonsensical shit.

Ahh, the good old days of EQ. There are few things I remember quite as fondly as trains to zone in Sol B. Good times.

I am 100% aware of the difference. EQ passing me by before I got exposed to MMO's does not mean I would not have played it and loved it. smile.gif

Beat ME3 last night, totally agree with everyone complaining that the ending was a cop-out. It was like no one had any idea what to do and they didn't have time to think about it or actually develop anything, so they just threw a bunch of crap at a wall. "Crap, all the voice actors are gone but we need an ending". On the whole I really liked the game - there were a couple of moments that rank for me among the best in RPG history - but that was super disappointing. Like, give me 4-5 hours and I could write a better ending script. Everything from the "big reveal" being utter nonsense to the resolution with no dialogue... I dunno that just sucked. BW should make a free DLC that says "sorry, we f'd up, here's the rest of the ending".

Haven't finished Amalur, it's been sitting in my PS3 for weeks but I don't feel terribly compelled to play it lately.

I was digging it at first, but I got tired of it before I finished it. Although IMO it's biggest problem was that it was too easy. I enjoyed the loot grinding, but I felt like it was pointless because I could beat everything without much trouble.

Anybody played all of the assassin's creeds? Would it be missing anything by skipping brotherhood and revelations? I've read the synopsis but is the single player gameplay worth it? I'm tempted to just wait til 3 is out and skip those 2.

I could really go for a new God of War game.

I´ve finished 1 and 2, currently playing brotherhood. I wouldn´t skip any because I think, story wise, you could miss out on a lot.

I thought Brotherhood was a better game than II. Haven't played revelations yet.

Downloaded Fallout 2 from Steam. The game definitely holds up but I went straight to the hardest difficulty setting. I should have realized this was from a time when designers were serious about those difficulty settings. I'm dying left and right.

Did you play Fallout 1? You should probably do that too. The locations were all-around more compelling. Though 2 sure has some good moments.
