I'm currently playing System Shock 2 right now since it just came out on GoG.com.

Why did I not play this back in the day?? It's incredible and fun as hell.

Playing the pc version. Haven't played mp because of my high ping satellite internet.

I dislike the Saber - To much like a sniper rifle for me.

I'm tempted to do a runthrough using nothing but explosive weaponry.

A lot of people say ME3 sucks, because of the storyline. The only real issue I have with ME3 was it ruining my favorite weapon in 2, the Phalanx. (I'm fine with the damage reduction - I just miss the laser sight.)

I was really hoping for a weapon mod that would add a laser sight. Don't think I'm going to get that, sadly.

ME3's storyline really wasn't what I was expecting. I don't know why, but even though I didn't get to the controversial endings, I stopped playing anyway because it just felt so underwhelming, to the point where it seems like the game was rushed.

I started on ME3 so I never had issues with the storyline.

    Personally I really liked the storyline of ME3, my favorite part though would have to be the story for the Leviathan DLC. That and From Ashes was pretty neat too.

    I HATE BRAWL.

    Seriously, it's not the game though. I like that the game gives not-so-great players a bit of luck involved with items and such that make it fun for me, but I hate that other players always want to turn all that off. What's even the point then???

    From Ashes was meh. I agree on Leviathan though - That one was great.

    My favorite part in ME3 is the cutscene where a reaper gets crushed by Kalros.

    Yeah, I have to admit, that one was a huge standout moment in the game.

      All this talk of the ME3 plot makes me wanna play it on Insanity just for funtime's sake. Granted I'll probably get my ass handed to me on a silver platter but with my abilities and marksmanship I'm not going alone lol.

      Oh and this.

      Insanity isn't that hard.

      Just remember the #1 rule - Carry some very big guns.

      And thats evil. Very, very evil.

      People like to show off. The ones who have played the game for hours to no end tend to seek gratification through these "serious" matches, and to limit the luck factor as much as possible just kinda helps in that. Take competitive battling in Pokémon, for instance. They have this Evasion Clause going on that disallows any form of ability, move, tactic, etc. which solely increases evasion because, according to most players, it takes the strategy away from the game. Especially since you rely on random numbers that dictate whether this attack would miss or not, i.e. luck. So I think with Brawl, it's all for the sake of fairness.

      Not that that's how I see things with Brawl though. I mean, when I play Brawl, I don't even bother turning the items off. Just because it's a lot more fun if you're allowed to mess around with them, imo. It's part of the game, right? So if you're not playing for a tournament or something, then keep them on.

      Except for the heart containers, tomatoes and health items. Those are annoying.

      When I play Melee, I always turn off all the items, lmao. It's only one on one and only depending on your skills and not some items. That's because I'm probably competitive in Melee

      Oh, I also mention Melee, because I hate Brawl and it's physics.

        Depends on who you're playing against. If you've played it a lot and you wanna battle with skill, turn items off. If you're playing with some inexperienced players, turn it on to give them a fighting chance.

        I liked Melee best. Felt the pace was a lot faster than Brawl.

        Yea, that's why I love Melee most. Also when my friends ask me to put items so they have a chance to win, I usually say no but in the end I always end up putting items. But I always stop them when they try to get an item. So basically they never get any'

        Actually, what you're thinking about is Final Fantasy IV, which was released as II in the western regions due to the actual II and III never releasing stateside originally. II is this:
        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWxolV8pjAg
        The battle system is the only one without experience points, however the characters do gain experience for whatever weapon you have them assigned to use. To top it off HP/MP is gained for draining your MP or ending battles with little health, so there is some pretty tense stuff trying to maintain a low health character in a chain of battles.

        I thought more people used to the now international numbering of the FF series in 2012. Its been nearly 20 years since the mess, and it was cleaned up more then a decade ago on the PS1. Just saw Michael Moore's capitalism move, and I gotta say its making me want to look up on what exactly happened with 2008. Some of that stuff in there is straight up Orwellian Dystopia .

        Also, brawl hate? Sure melee was faster, but brawl had all sorts of goodies to unlock as well, and it has the stage editor, so it wins by default.

        Yeah I always had friends that were kind of jerks and would claim "I CAN'T HAVE FUN UNLESS THERE ARE NO ITEMS AND NOTHING RANDOM", with the knowledge that I don't even own the game so they would crush me every time we played. I just ended up not playing anymore, haha.

        And Elendil it's the entire franchise, not that particular game. :P

          I think I would like the game more if I started out with less competitive people, haha. It's not the game itself I hate.

            Do what I do and play local with buddies irl, granted someone will likely get owned into oblivion but it's having fun with the game itself that matters in the end :P
