I had no problems with the combat in Skyrim or Oblivion and I was primarily a melee character, I hit stuff with my weapon and they got hurt, I don't see a problem with that

 

Same. My main character was Molag Bal mace and shield. I mean, there isn't much too it, it's just swing swing swing, but it was competent enough to get me through my time with the game. I'm not sure how else you can do first person melee. Make it so you can aim, like in Dead Island? Yeah, that's cool, but it doesn't really make the combat any less boring.

 

 

Also, Skyrim had garbage magic. Hooray, I've stunlocked the guy, now I'll wait 45 seconds for him to die because my attacks do shit damage.

 

Magic fuuuuuuuuuuuuuckin sucks. The scaling in that game makes it so damn weak.

 

The animations were clunky and completely barebones. Compare it to Fallout 3 where the VATS allowed different damage to different body parts, etc. 

 

Either way, with the bit I played of Dragon's Dogma it just made me realize just how much more of an update TES combat needs. 


I mean, don't you always talk shit about Dragon's Dogma?

 

Oh wait, you said you only played a bit.

 

You were doing a whoknows thing.

 

I see.

Finally got around to trying the new Twisted Metal that I got on Black Friday, it's actually pretty fun, I loved the old ones and was worried with what I all heard about it, sucks that there is much less single player content since they focused on online and that's close to dead though, I think I remember seeing someone on here talking about it before, we should try the multiplayer of that sometime whoever that was!

DmC is only fun because of jump canceling.

It's pretty fun, kinda sucks that there are only 4 characters now and the specials are based on vehicles, but I can still use Axel's giant wheels at least, always loved those in the old games. Kind of a shame I don't think many people in this thread have it, it would be one of those games that would be pretty fun to play in a bigger group.

Don't know how to quote on CAGs mobile site, but I'm at the hospital for my girl's dad, Joel. No work today, so I went with to keep her company during it. Won't be home until Sunday.

Wow, that is a thing. Wish I knew when I was 10.

I played all Vig8 and TM (except Small Brawl) on PS1 - sadly the Vig8 remake on XBLA runs at 10fps. Calypso's voice in the new TM on PS3 is game-breakingly bad.

Haha yeah it is! I loved that Star Wars game!

 

I basically played all the TMs and Vig8s myself as well, I did buy that one on 360 when it was really cheap since there really aren't a lot of games like that now so I'll take what I can get sadly. Haven't heard the voices in the PS3 version of TM yet, just did a few matches against the bots and it reminded me of the old games so I was happy with that at least.

I know it's late, but I actually didn't mind Skyrim's melee combat either. Any first person melee combat that allows you to actually build momentum and move forward is a-ok in my book. In a POV that so naturally lends itself to backpedaling, the ability to muscle forward always stands out to me. It's one of the reasons I actually really enjoyed The Darkness 2.

 

The magic though? Yeah, that's rough. Thankfully that Skyrim Redone mod addresses the downfalls and makes magic pretty god damned awesome. I've been playing a full mage for a few months now and it's a god damned blast. PC master race, etc, etc.

Dunno what they're working on, but he's with The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency now.

Dicked around a little more in ALBW last evening, got the pegasus boots I missed, bought a golden bee to get that medal, and did the beginner and intermediate runs through Treacherous Tower.  I think I'm done now, and will put it up on Amazon to sell in a bit.

 

Also played some more Super Mario 3D World.  Got through the second world, getting all the green stars and stamps.  Very impressed by the game and level design so far.  The shadow level in world two was pretty cool.

I dunno why I keep playing fucking NBA 2K14 MyCareer mode. It's overly-scripted, the VC system (which is how you upgrade your player--and basically the only way to play the game without tearing out all your fucking hair) is completely designed around blatant money-hatting microtransaction bullshit, the team mate grading system is jacked up, and there's graphics, game, and gameplay bugs that still haven't been worked out.

I actually threw my DS4 in disgust a couple nights ago and accidently hit my PS3 which was sitting nearby (no real damage to either). :cry:

Also, I had been accumulating the free VC that 2K has been sending out but wondering why it never applied to MyCareer mode...turns out if you bought the game early on and started playing before downloading all the patches, the game save became offline only and subsequently, completely incompatible with VC codes that were given away or bought with real money in the store.

I ended up creating a new save and starting all over. And even though I played a shit ton better than my scripted rival in the first Rookie Scout game, I still ended up getting drafted after him and on the SAME FUCKING TEAM as the first time I played (and did way worse in).

smh. But there's no other good basketball video games to play. sighhh.

I'm really enjoying My Career despite its flaws. First I think being drafted after Jackson Ellis (the "rival" the mode creates for you) is a given and also what position you play determines what team you start out with. Seems PG always go to either Phoenix or Sacramento.

I haven't played an NBA 2K since 2K11 so that's probably got something to do with it as well.

Luckily I didn't start My Career until after New Years Day & patch 3 so I didn't have to restart.

btw joel I've been following this chick on twitter she drew some batgirl covers and keeps uploading batgirl art which is cool
https://twitter.com/AlexGarnerArt

That's a guy. He's been doing DC/Marvel art for years. Used to do lots of art for VS. System TCG as well. He did the Emma Frost art that's my profile pic on Twitter & XBL.

No, I've heard that you can get picked ahead of Ellis.

 

Position does determine which team.  PGs tend to go Utah, Phoenix, Sacramento.

 

The game is better now that I have restarted, but still full of stupid little shit that pisses me off.

 

It's helpful to install the NBA 2K app as they give you free VC once a day, every day and you can earn VC in other ways as well.

 

The best thing is that they actually have audio for my player name--just like in MLB.  It's pretty awesome considering I have an Asian last name.

I like Amanda Conner's work--she's not afraid to draw characters like Powergirl the way dudes originally designed them.  :p

 

Sara Pichelli, Becky Cloonan, and Fiona Staples are all great too.

 

Old school, there's Marie Severin and Wendy Pini.

 

There are many underground or indie/alternative female cartoonists and female "specialists" who are inkers or colorists as well.
