Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    I'm glad I'm not the only person who enjoyed that game, and if you could modify some of the more bullshit aspects of that game one could probably sit down and legitimately enjoy it.

    You know, without being a masochist.

    That's a game that needs to be made.

    If some developer made that game, one that actually did what B&W promised it could do, I'd buy the shit out of that game.

    Here's an idea where I promise and imply that you have infinite control, infinite choices, a world that reacts to everything you do!

    And three years later here's a completely linear game where at the beginning you choose GOOD/EVIL, and the middle you choose GOOD/EVIL, and the only consequences of your actions are the GOOD/EVIL ending cinematics.

    Peter Molyneux is like the abusive asshole boyfriend of the gaming world. One day, his band will hit it big and he'll show you just how much he really loves you and pay back all the rent money he owes. He promises he won't get drunk again and smack you around. This time he means it when he says he'll go see a therapist.

    But he'll never change. His games will never work right.

    Please tell me it's fun...not just drop lava on a village fun, but actually controllable and fun.

    Yeah, B&W ruined these kind of games for me

    Same here. I could never figure out how to throw fireballs, and only passed the tutorial through luck, but I could get past that. But the micromanagement, god, the micromanagement. A god should not have to be telling its people to fuck to reproduce! Most gods can't get their people to stop!

    If they're infinitely spawning in this game, much better.

    The worst was when you meant to punish your pet and the controls registered it as petting him

    So my horse creature kept getting the idea that villagers were chew toys

    God, yes, the punishment/praise mechanics in B&W were so bad. Your critter would shit all over the town, you'd go to smack him, and in that instant he'd start dancing for the villagers. Bam, you've punished him for being nice.

    I remember inadvertently teaching my lion that pooping anywhere, at all, was bad, despite the fact that I was trying to train him to poop on the fields. As a result he wandered around farting up a storm and making uncomfortable faces while clutching his ass, trying desperately to hold it in. Funny, but not funny enough to outweigh my frustration at the clumsy game mechanic.

    This game is just an XBLA game so it is not going to be that big.

    You just control certain elements to get your people to certain places.

    It still looked pretty good to me

    http://www.giantbomb.com/quick-look-from-dust/17-4531/

    the biggest complaint I keep seeing from people is that you can not control the elements as accurately as people would like, and apparently there is some camera wonkiness.

    I played it for a couple of hours the other day, I love the mechanics of picking stuff up and building stuff but I didn't expect it to be as puzzley as it is. Not that it's a bad thing, but it can get a bit fiddley and frustrating at times, and I guess I was expecting more of a traditional god game. It's still worth the $15 or whatever 1200 points translates to though.

    Holy shit, I remember Black And White. So many previews in the months leading up to it, Official Dreamcast Magazine would not shut about it.

    It got a crazy high review score. So being an impressionable young lad, I rushed out to buy that shit. So excited to play.

    If only I could go back in time.

    If only I could tell my young self; "Don't worry. Some day, you'll know about the internet, and never get caught by this shit again."

    See, some people don't know about Black and White. The things we were promised.

    Instead it was exchanging 50 bucks for Peter Molyneux shitting in a box and telling you it was epic.

    Birthday comic is the best type of comic. Even if I didn't get what they were parodying at first.

    Your fuckin' family's dug into the Southie projects like ticks. You, however, grew up on the North Shore, huh? Well, la-di-fuckin'-da. You were kind of a double kid, I bet, right? Huh? One kid with your old man, one kid with your mother. You're upper-middle class during the weeks, then you're droppin' your "R"s and you're hangin' in the big, bad Southie projects with your daddy on the weekends. I got that right?

    I enjoyed Black & White. I loved my cow, and the wacky honking noises he'd make when he was little.

    I also enjoyed expanding my influence out to the point where I could grab my enemies' worshippers and sacrifice them on his altar, reducing him to nothing.

    Oh, the screams, children. The screams...

    I don't know how you did this. You must be God for real or some shit.

  • HunterHunter Chemist with a heart of Au Registered User regular
    You couldn't have enjoyed Black and White because it did not work.

    You see, there was no real control. Your avatar did whatever the fuck it wanted to with or without your input. Unless you got the only functioning copy in existence. Maybe you're a god.

    I remember Populous as "that SNES game where I have no fuckin clue what's going on but that last button sets all the houses on fire and everyone gets out and fights and that's kind of awesome I guess?"

    Don't really know what the point was
