Seven computers??

Now you're making me depressed that I can't afford seven computers either.
>> No. 131726
SEGA Saturn
SEGA Dreamcast
Playstation 2
Playstation 3
Xbox 360

But if we trim things down to only the consoles of the last decade that are actually comparable in price to a full PC, that's still the Wii, the 360 and the PS3. That's still four computers.

Of course I am also omitting the original Xbox that I gave away to a relative, the Gamecube that I don't use any more, the NES that broke a few years ago, the Commodore Amiga that my sister took off my hands some time ago...

Heard MSS was short and linear and unfavorable things about it, as long as it has a good atmosphere and story it should be alright.

Transformers will be a combiantion of the movie-verse and the Cybertron series by High Moon Studios.
Problem is they fired every at HMS after Deadpool bombed. So major factor for me is if this game plays exactly like the Cybertron games, keeping all the modes and doesn't mess things up like Transformers 3 did.

I was actually considering buying the Cybertron games this month, along with Project Gotham Racing 4, Rez, Drakengard, Nier, Silent Hill 3, and maybe Mugen Souls Z if I actually feel like spending $50 for a recent game.
>> No. 131629
Well Transformers has multiplayer and the community is at its best when early on. People haven't learned all the exploits and the casuals are still playing because it takes them a week to realize they're trash and they sell the game to GameStop for like half the value.
MSS because I assume it will have a challenge achievement and I like retarded useless things like that.
Battle Princess, because I can.

>Cybertron games this month
Should have done that a few weeks ago when they were on sale on PSN/XBL, sure you cna find them for $20 or less probably but not the DLC.

>Mugen Souls Z
Did you play the first one?
I still have my special edition wrapped up, never played it.

  What I buy this month pretty much depends on what happens to end up massively discounted.

If I wasn't poor, I'd buy Divinity: Original Sin.

With my country's economy, I have to be happy with what both Xbox's Free Games With Gold and Playstation Plus bring to the table. I'm actually pretty satisfied with the reveal of Sly Cooper Thieves In Time as this month's free game for PS+.

I MIGHT be getting Shin Megami Tensei Digital Devil Saga for PS3.

I also have to complete Soul Hackers on my 3DS and get the true ending in Persona 1 for the PSP.

What is DFO you ask? It's essentially old school beat-em-ups (such as Final Fight) meet RPG elements. It used to be run by Nexon, but the game slowly died out due to terrible management of the game and utter lack of advertisement.

The game is returning after Nexon's horrible mistreatment and is taken up by the original developers of the game: Neople. I'm trying to see here if there were any plans on making a Brony oriented guild. I feel that this time around the game will be here to stay.

Spread the word about the game's return and help support/advertise it. It'd be so nice to return to this game in good hands.

They have a facebook page here:

The only possible con is you gotta make a Facebook account to play the game, but they probably will change that once they get out of Alpha and move into Beta.

MASSIVE DISCLAIMER: They said that levels and IGNs won't get wiped in this Alpha, so if you want to play better make IGNS that'll last. Also means you can get a headstart on your characters.

More of an announcement as opposed to anything else, it is in fact that time of yer again where a bunch of old farts on selective forums garner around and begin the annual jaded round-table discussion of the birthday of DooM, regarded as one of the more influential video games created.

Today is different though, sorta, in that it's DooM's 20th Anniversary. A lot of stuff celebrates 20ths, 30ths, and so on. Anything lower doesn't seem important enough. But 20 is a good number of years around, especially since that DooM still catch a bit of the limelight once in a while, despite being 20 years old now. Only recently did Brutal Doom (A mod for the game) make waves on the video game websites, and only recently has DooM's father, Wolfenstein, been making its own comeback tour. John Carmack resigned at iD Software, Doom 4 is still in development Hell, and Bethesda celebrates by offering us a new T-shirt to buy.

At least Carmack and John Romero (Big names for the game fyi, and the industry as a whole) offered some insightful interviews and large collections of Behind the Scenes Photographs, and Romero has either finished or is still playing a Live play through of the game with members of IGN.

Why does it seem important? Why is this 20 year old game still beating on and continuing to fight while the industry moves on? Why the hell are most of you still clinging to cartoon ponies?

Doom revitalized a genre (Note that it didn't create one, however), one still thriving today. Without it, we wouldn't have had Quake, which led to Half Life or Quake III. Without Half-Life, Valve may of not of been what it is today, and Quake III's engine still wouldn't be empowering the latest Call of Duty overload. Sure, we may have seen this all eventually with or without, but it came out at the time, and we have everything we have now because at least shit got jumpstarted somewhere. Granted, regardless, we probably still wouldn't have Half Life 3. On the bright side, maybe we could've avoided Duke Nukem Forever, too. Or at least post-poned it for another 15 years.

Say what you want about old games being drek, pointless, u

Ahh, Doom... still remember the DOS commands for it too.

I've been an avid gamer ever since I was given a Coleco-Vision, but Doom will always hold a special place in my heart.

I'll agree that modern games are astoundingly impressive with realism now (BF, Metro Last Light, Crysis, Far Cry, etc), but the simplicity of the old games just has a charm that can't be rendered thru computer horsepower.
>> No. 131526
Personally, I find that technological sophistication is just another part of the medium that can be used, misused, or not, depending on the artist. Some games make fantastic use of their technology, others completely waste it. Some games would be infinitely improved by better, modern technology, and others just don't need it.

It's really all a matter of the individual game.
>> No. 131530
It's quite astonishing how a humble game from 20 years ago is still kicking strong whereas more modern and more powerful games are forgotten.
I guess good artistic direction, a fiercely dedicated modding community (Seriously, have you seen some of the shit people make? I know a few things about modding and I don't have a sodding damn clue how they manage to do such things.), as well as the timeless activity of shooting an enemy we can all agree are proverbial dicks in the literal dick have a lot more staying power than we give it credit.

Learn your lesson, Modern Military Shooters.

This is the format:
So 5x3.

It has to be something game related but they're too long for PSN and too short for Xbox Live.
If anypony can help me figure out what they're for maybe I'll give you one of whatever they are (assuming you would even want it) or a free game on Steam (or a few even).
