suggestions:

  • colors for each person's username that we can choose? it's all grey at the moment, so it's kinda hard to pick one another out when you've got a bunch of people with long names all talking at once.
  • a list of people currently in the chatroom would be nice. someone in chat (i forget who) was suggesting we have our user avatars listed too (in case people know you better by your avatar than your username, lol), but i don't really care either way; i can recognize people with or without their avatars :3
  • sometimes graphic smilies work, and sometimes they don't... personally, i'd rather they not show up as graphics (ASCII ftw), but it would be nice if either they all show up or they all don't.
  • will forum mods be mods in chat as well? if so, it would be nice if there were some kind of notice letting us know this, or some kind of link telling us where to go or who to report to when someone's in chat being a jerk...
    i mean, that's not to say that i'm sure any regulars will be mean to one another, but this chat's going to be open to anyone who registers, same as the forums, and there's a report button for the forums, so the chat may end up needing one too...
  • is there some way for the chat window to be taller? when the chat gets going, it's hard to keep up because so many people are talking at once, and it's hard to scroll up when each time someone sends something new, you get dragged back down to where you can see the newest stuff instead of what you were trying to look at up above, if that makes any sense. any way to help us keep up with what's been said before would be great.

definitely loving the chat so far, and will continue posting feedback as I notice things. thank you for this! :D

who cares? just be yourself, man... you like what you like, and Red vs. Blue is pretty funny. this is why labels are ridiculous... why try and shoehorn yourself into the label ('hardcore Nintendo fanboy') you've slapped upon yourself? it doesn't make any sense to deny yourself something you like just because you think people expect you to act a certain way. :/

theblackdragon

11,314. Posted:

by that definition, i'm usually a hold-out, mainly because (a) a lot of new gaming stuff comes out right at the holiday season, and I don't want to fight the holiday shoppers, (b) if it doesn't come out during the holiday season, with my luck there'll be some kind of shortage and people will still be fighting over them, which I still don't want to deal with, and (c) i'm generally broke and have to save up for things I want, so I can't get them as soon as they're on sale. if I'm going to 'early-adopt' something, it's gotta be something I really, really want and have known about for at least a few months in advance (to save money toward it). :3

The wireless router will have wired jacks just like your current router. Go look at them in a store. You'll see 5 jacks on the back. One is for connecting to your cable (or DSL) modem and the other four are for connecting to your computers.

i just checked mine, and you're absolutely right. i hadn't even thought about that; my husband's the IT-professional-in-training and he's the one who set up our network, not me, lol. so yes, if you still want to use wired connections, you'll be able to with your wireless router... just make sure it has the jacks you need. :3

@Odnetnin: a friend of mine mentioned he'd gotten it, and he was nice enough to let me try it out. granted, it's not like i've had the benefit of a full week of playing it (it was just the one night he let me borrow it), but the control system wasn't that great (why not let us control Maxwell with the d-pad?), and i kept having problems trying to use/do something with small objects (sometimes he'd let me choose what i wanted to do, other times he'd just pick them up immediately). it was fun to try stuff out on the title screen just to see what it would do (lol, Cthulu is angry), but the actual levels (from what i played of them) were kinda boring IMO.

it's just not my cup of tea, i don't think, and I'm very glad I held off on getting it. I guess, like with Drawn to Life, it's one of those things that sounds great in print or looks fun on TV, but when you're actually playing it, you either love it or you hate it. :/

that would be so nice. or at least an option to turn the tutorials off or otherwise skip them. I don't know why they got away from that -- you can totally skip tutorials in SMRPG, which is awesome if you're like me and have played that game 963498573948750394875 times already and know half the dialogue by heart and how to complete every single side-quest and get every extra item and yadda-yadda, but i couldn't skip them in PiT. :(

Illusion of Gaia is good (from what I remember of it; i seriously have not played it in yeeeeeeears).

FFV is my favorite Final Fantasy game (besides FFT, lol), but then, that's me. story-wise, FFIV is better, but it's still a fun little game. :3

I screwed up my Chrono Cross file something fierce (didn't know i could steal some really good items from some bosses and ended up under-leveled and barely protected right before a battle that kicked my butt every time I tried it, grr) and ended up not completing the game, I was so ticked... people say it's a great game, but that pretty much turned me off of it. They could've come up with something far better than that as the sequel to freaking Chrono Trigger... and that magic system totally ticked me off. ugh, it was so annoying.

Legend of Mana is so much fun! I really, really liked this game... the graphics and music are excellent, but as for gameplay, it's sorta hard to explain. it's an action-adventure RPG, and it plays like earlier titles in the Mana series, but you create the landscape yourself by placing certain artifacts you get by completing quests... the whole game kinda feels like a long string of side-quests that kinda mesh with one another to form one giant story featuring a couple different storylines. you can also collect items to craft/upgrade your weapons and armor (instead of just buying better armor every so often), and if you've got two save files on the same card, you can battle the main characters against one another if you like IIRC.

the game progresses depending on how you lay out your landscape and some decisions you make. you don't have to complete all the quests in order to finish the game, but you'd certainly want to try.... consult a FAQ to get the most out of this game from the get-go.

Klavier was eye-candy, plain and simple. :3

I do agree that he was incredibly weak as a prosecutor, and also, the whole 'i'll get revenge against you for my family member by besting you in court!' thing has already been done in the series, y'know? however, i think the bracelet-nervous-habit thing and the overall storyline that went down in AJ:AA (especially the last case, holy crap!) made up for him being such a weak prosecutor. The third game was so depressing, it was nice to have the fourth be so awesome after that mess. :3

I think it would've been more fun had Stuffwell and the nigh-endless stream of tutorials not been included. i know, i'm exaggerating, but it really felt like every time I turned around there was some new power to learn, and a cheesy tutorial session to go along with it. whatever happened to just letting people figure things out on their own? tell 'em the power is there and then let 'em go?
