It seems that the page you are looking for is not here. You can always try a search, or have a look below at the most popular pages for the week and see if anything there might interest you.
we had a thread about this years back IIRC, but considering I can't find it (search still seems to be broken), and reviving it would have been seriously Necroing at this point, i thought I would start up another
for those not familiar with the terms:
a Linear Continuity is a series where you really have to play the previous game(s) in the series to fully understand whats going on, who the characters are, and what the overarching plot is.. games like Assassin's Creed (up until the end of 3 anyways..) or Mass Effect would fall into this category..
an Episodic-Linear Continuity refers to a series where all the games take place in the same world with a few overarching plot points or characters, but you really don't have to play the previous titles because each is its own self contained story, although you may see small references to the previous titles as you play.. games like The Elder Scrolls or Might & Magic would fall under this category..
a Purely Episodic series is a series where, other than having a very similar name, the games all take place in entirely separate universes that may just share similarities.. off the top of my head, Final Fantasy would fall into this category..
I just heard that Ron Hynes passed away after a fight with cancer, at Age 64
for those unfamiliar, Ron Hynes was a classic Canadian musician, focusing on folk and country music.. I was fortunate enough to see him play at a venue a few years back..
his loss saddens people across this great country, especially here in Atlantic Canada..
I would like to leave you with one of my favorite songs of his, that always holds a place in my heart. Sonny's Dream
RIP Ron, you shall be missed, and may you find peace
Sorry, but I spent some time on YouTube this evening and occasionally, I get sidetracked by the suggestions
So... Here are a couple of songs I listened to (not for the first time) where I love the music, but the lyrics leave me wondering...
Queen: Fat Bottomed Girls (possibly my all-time favorite Queen song).
Nickelback: Figured You Out (No terrible language, but quite suggestive topics).
Have any songs like this where the music/beat may have your head banging, but the lyrics may have you cringing?read more
wryemusings.com seems to be offline?!?
Is it just me or can someone else confirm it and I guess my question is why???
I am sad about this. I know Wrye has been out of the whole scene for years now and I guess he must have taken it down but I really enjoyed it and often went by just to reminisce.
Any thoughts?read more
Hello forum. I recently moved from the middle of nowhere to a proper city in which I can get far better internet. I have XFinity from Comcast now and according to speedtest.net nearly all of the devices in my house get anywhere from 55Mbps to 85Mbps down and 10Mbps to 12Mbps up. Now, you may have noticed that I said nearly all of the devices because my PS4 only manages 25Mbps down and 4Mbps up, and that is when it is working well, most of the time it's closer to 19/2. I have the PS4 in a DMZ but that hasn't seemed to help. I also tried connecting it via Ethernet from an Enimax AP but that dropped it to 15-ish. I'm not sure what else to try but I thought some networking people here might offer some ideas.read more
Saw this article http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2015-11-17-players-are-value-creators-paradox linked to over on the Paradox forums. Paradox, like Bethesda, have supported mods and their games have benefited for a long time. Another example is ESO where ZOS are now talking about adding some of the features available on pc via player-made addons to the console-game themselves.read more
Overall, I enjoy the "idea" of sitting at my PC, scratching my head and wondering which choice to make. Usually, this is not done very well. Too many times, the developers will "steer" you towards a certain choice through how the game plays afterwards. Now, don't get me wrong, I appreciate consequences for choices more than most folks, even in real life. But video games seem to make a game harder because you did not do something that gave you more power.
This was brought on by watching a YouTuber I enjoy peeking in on every once in awhile, Danger Dolan GAMING. His 15 Hardest Video Game Choices got me thinking, and that can be dangerous (There some minor spoilers. Be warned.)
What do you think? Do you find moral choices in video games satisfying or somewhat skewed, overall?read more
I don't know if I should post this here, but it is technically fallout related, please forgive me if this isn't allowed and move it to the proper sections as you see fit Mods/Admins.
I am returning to this forum after 4 years. 4 years ago I was posting in this forum about Skyrim, I was very excited for it and I even started a very popular thread series that went on until I had left the forum called A List of Idiotic Complaints, it's a very silly and hilarious series of threads and definitely worth reading over.
4 years ago I was standing in line for the midnight release of Skyrim, I was super excited and was anxiously waiting in line for my copy. But before I received my copy I got a call on my phone.
It was my aunt. She told me that my grandma was in the hospital and she was dying. She passed on 11-17-11, six days after Skyrim was released. It is now four years later and I have grieved and mourned my grandmother and moved on.
Nine days ago Fallout 4 was released, I waited in a gamestop for 3 hours and I was the second person in line. I was so happy to take it home and play it on my PC. I got a power armor collectible figure and the hardcover strategy guide and I loved it. But 7 days after, on the anniversary of my grandmother's death. Tragedy struck again. My best friend in the whole world passed away in a car accident while driving to see his newborn daughter. I knew him since I was four years old and we had been best friends ever since. I don't know why I decided to come back here. I guess I'm just looking for support and someone to help soothe this agony that I'm in...Please help...
