I'm still playing Asphalt Urban GT, for some reason. I don't play it constantly, so maybe that's why it's been able to hold my interest.

PC Games / Bloodmoon help
« on: April 15, 2005, 08:19:21 pm »
I am a great fan of TES series, but I'm stuck on a TES III: Bloodmoon quest. I have been searching the entire island of Vvardenfell for at least a month (game time) and I have found only one of the five Bittergreen Petals that I need to kill that stupid tree in Raven Rock. It would be insanely appreciated if anyone could let me know where I could find more. The one that I found was in the alchemist in Ald'ruhn's posession.

Wow. All but one person has said RPG's. I didn't realize they were still so popular. I mean, I like them, but I usually feel like I'm part of a dying breed.

I have finally finished reading Singularity. Once I started reading it, it turned out to be one of the best books I have read since Black Water, the fifth book in the Pendragon series by D. J. MacHale. I have since begun to read The Boxes, another book by Sleator and it is very good so far.

Exactly. A "perfect" game would be perfect forever, because every aspect of it would be perfect, including visuals, so it would never be outdated.

The reason Tetris has lasted so long is that it is such a simple game, yet so complex and deep at the same time. It's fairly simple graphics are what allowed it to have existed for twenty-some years.

All right. Here's my transcript of:

Pet Shop

Customer:     I wish to register a complaint! *Clears throat* Hello, Miss?
Shopkeeper: What do you mean, "Miss?"
Customer:     I'm sorry. I have a cold. I wish to make a complaint.
Shopkeeper: Sorry, we're closed for lunch.
Customer:     Never mind that, my lad, I wish to complain about this parrot that I purchased not half an hour ago from this very boutique.
Shopkeeper: Oh yes. The Norweigian Blue. What's wrong with it?
Customer:     I'll tell you what's wrong with it, my lad. It's dead, that's what's wrong with it.
Shopkeeper: No, no. He's resting.
Customer:     Look, I know a dead parrot when I see one. And I'm looking at one right now.
Shopkeeper: No, no, he's not dead, he's resting. Remarkable bird the Norweigian Blue, isn't it eh? Beautiful plumage.
Customer:     The plumage don't enter into it. He's stone dead.
Shopkeeper: No, no. He's resting.
Customer:     All right, then. If he's resting, I'll wake him up. (Screaming at dead bird) Hello, Polly parrot. I've got a lovely dilicious fresh fish for you.
Shopkeeper: (Hits bird cage) There, he moved.
Customer:     No, he didn't. That was you hitting the cage.
Shopkeeper: I never!
Customer:     Yes you did! (Screaming at bird again) Hello, Polly! Wakey, wakey! (Bangs parrot on table) Testing! (Bangs parrot on table) This is your nine o'clock land call! (Bangs parrot on table) (Not screaming anymore) Now that's what I call a dead parrot.
Shopkeeper: He's stunned.
Customer:     Stunned?
Shopkeeper: Yeah! You stunned him just as he was waking up. Norweigian Blues stun easily.
Customer:     Now listen, matey, I've had enough of this. That parrot is definately deceased, and when I purchased it not half an hour ago, you assured me that its total lack of movement was due to it being tired and shagged out after a prolonged squat.
Shopkeeper: Well, he's uh... He's probably pining for the fields.
Customer:     Pining for the fields? "Pining for the fields," what kind of talk is that? (Partially to audience) Look! This is nothing to laugh at! Why did he fall flat on his back the moment I got him home?
Shopkeeper: The Norweigian Blue prefers sleeping on its back. Remarkable bird, eh? Beautiful plumage!

Sorry, I'll finish later.

Are you at least being paid overtime?

It's APRIL and there's snow on the ground. It's just not right! Usually we have fairly decent weather here in Western PA, but apparantly we're not going to today. Anyone else experiencing unseasonal weather?

God is truely perfect. Not just in the eyes of man.

There are some people who do not believe that God is perfect, but merely the fact that they say He is not does not make it true.

Therefore, if a video game was perfect, just because someone said that it was not perfect would not make it any less perfect.

(Somewhat on both subjects, I wonder if there are perfect videos game in Heaven?)

Wow, I just had time to read hat excerpt. This sounds great. I was hesitant to buy this game, because Morrowind was my first TES experience and there were parts that just didn't sit well with me. But all the parts I didn't like about it seem to be fixed, (minor examples being npc interactions and day/night routines) and now combat seems like it'll be implemented quite well. Thanks for digging that up. ;)
That is exactly my case.

The XBox 2 is going to have the best launch title ever.

The graphics are truly awe-inspiring. And based on what Gil posted, Oblivion will play just as well as it looks.

Allright. Think of it this way. God is perfect. There are people who don't like Him. Does that mean He isn't perfect? No.

Console Games / What Kind of Games Do You Play?
« on: April 03, 2005, 01:18:14 pm »
Which of these game genres do you play? This is only games you play the most often. I'll use myself as an example. I like FPS's, but I rarely play them. Therefore, I would not select "Shooters."

Also, you may notice that I stole this list from Nintendo Power, but I don't really care.

Nothing is perfect. Perfection is something we should all be scared of. We do not want a perfect game. Why? Because then it would totally destroy the gaming business and leave us no reason to do anything else. If something is perfect then it has no flaws, and simply cannot be improved.

What is there to strive for if there is nowhere left to go? Developing Companies would be shut down because everybody was buying this "perfect game", thousands in the gaming industry would lose jobs. If a game is perfect then there is no speculation... nothing to look forward to after it comes. Why would you want one?

Sorry for getting all philosophical on you... but it's late (or early, whichever way you wish to look at it).
True perfection is unattainable in our inherently imperfect world. Therefore, this horrible destruction of the video game industry by one perfect game that you discribed will not happen.
and what we deem as "perfect" depends on the person, and there views on said subject.
This is another reason that will never happen. Even if there is one insanely awesome game out there, there will be people who don't like it. Think Halo 2. That is one of the best games made to date, in the opinion of many. But there are people who don't like it. However many people like a game, there will still be just as many, if not more, who do not. Everyone has different tastes. This ensures that the video game industry will not collapse because of one game.

I was just asking what different people would like to see in a "perfect" game.

When I played Civilization 2 it was about as close I could get to perfection. I was very tempted to pick Metal Gear Solid but I figured that people might be getting tired of it and to be honest, Civ 2 was a game I could just play again and again. The first two Fallouts comes dangerously close as well but in terms of perfection, it takes a lot to beat Civ 2. -leeman
Good old Civ 2. My first taste of one of the greatest genres out there, TBS. The main thing I didn't like about it was the music, though. It was so frickin' annoying!!! Other than that, I loved it.
