    If it does then I'm one too. JE is a fun little game with a great colour palette and some interesting gameplay. It has its quirks and issues, but it also has Nathan Fillion and John Cleese.

    What's the Mass Effect team up to now that the trilogy is closed? I'd take a new Jade Empire.
    Is "Luis_Magalhães" on the RPS comment threads.

    My understanding is that the DA series is developed by a different team at Bioware than the ME series. I think Ash is wondering what the ME team is doing next, with the assumption being that the DA team is handling DA3.


    On Topic: Still New Vegas (I'm to town now, rapidly approaching the point where instability forced me to quit last time. So far so good) and Orcs Must Die 2.

    That would be it; unless they decide to merge the teams - unlikely.

    AFAIK, the core DA team has been at DA3 ever since completing DA2.

    The monitor on my main PC is dead, long live Samsung Caps! Time to grind through the low spec crap in my backlog.

    Ys: Oranges
    Not bad at all. Bosses are still a bit at odds difficulty wise compared to most of the game. Seems fair throughout though.

    Fortune Summoners
    The more cutesy the graphics, the more hateful the design. Presentation is fantastic both graphically and sound wise. Characters are so Moe laden it makes me want to hurt the people who made this. Levels and combat are littered with a constant stream of dick moves and really stupid ideas. Controls, while not bad in the long run, are really twitchy and take a lot of getting used to. Not something easily advised.

    Hmm, an Angelfish swimming in Early Gray?

    I'm having an enormous amount of fun with it, but then I never played the first one so I'm ill-equipped to compare.

    To be fair the bolded segment will do fine, I need to bleed a few nightmare skulls out of OMD#1 before I can get the sequel in a good faith but its good to hear.

    Jade Empire is my favourite Bioware game. You can turn into a MOTHERFUCKING HORSE DEMON!

    I enjoyed Durlag's tower, but it's very much a product of its time. I don't think I've seen any dungeon since it that holds has such thinly-veiled contempt for the player. Still beats Firewine Bridge though.

    I don't know, Durlag is just trap after trap, many of which can toast your weaker party members on the spot. And then there's the Greater Doppelgangers, and Basilisks, and Cloudkill fucking everywhere.

    I'll add that it's good enough that it makes me want to try out the original, despite having been underwhelmed by the original's demo way back when.

    Yeah, that'd be great! Instead of boring old extraction, just ask someone to tether a Silverbolt to the back of a Leopard, and grab the second plane as it passes over. Or, provided that the multi-grapple mod is supported, tie a jet to a jet to a jet to a jet to a jet, get a person in each one, and see how far you get without being utterly destroyed.

    Well I was playing Fallout: New Vegas. No prizes for guessing how that was interrupted...

    It's Obsidian + Bethesda. How do you think?

    Oh, I thought he meant "interrupted" like stopped from playing, not "interrupted" like had to start the game up again.

    I have to say, though, that in 35 hours of play since I started my new New Vegas game I've had exactly 3 CTD's. Not bad at all, especially compared to the playthrough I tried a year and a half back. It's difficult to isolate the individual variables, especially with a shifting mod set, but I really do think CASM helps stability quite a bit.
