Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
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!

    Will how old are you?

    turn 36 next week.

    OK, that makes me nine years younger than you.

    Having said that I am fairly sure I did not see The Fifth Element until my twenties.

    H5 me too, and Will is just being old and telling us to get off his lawn. Fifth Element is great at any age, my father is 60 and enjoys it.

    When was 5th Element out again? Think I saw it at the cinema.

    1997, at least in America.

    You make it sound like you're a thousand years old Will.

    Well it is just that there is a fucking world of difference between experiencing something as a kid and experiencing something as an adult. Like if you and I went to see a movie today, the age difference between us would be subordinate to the differences in our personal tastes. But If I went to go see a movie with an eight year old, I literally could not experience the movie the same way he would.

    I can see that.

    I loved Tucker in Rush Hour.

    Rush Hour 3 was so bad. I mean the first one was good and the second one was good to a point but its incredible how bad the third one was.

    I agree with Will on a lot of games, but on movies he and I diverge, I have taste and he likes shit from like a butt.

    All the Rush Hour films are great in the way that they display what kind of crazy stunts a well trained 120 year old can do.

    it is definitely good

    just surprisingly low-key
    He is like playing with expectations and shit

    also if you read it like 5 times you figure out that there is a bunch of secret shit going on

    God, I hate that.

    "Haha, I totally got this one!"

    *read an interview*

    "what the fuck? that was an allegory for american hegemony in the middle east and all sorts of obscure catholic references etc?"

    I actually played that before I played Trigger, but I'm pretty fond of it. I can dig the sort of disjointed, almost episodic pacing the game had, although I can see how it could quickly grate on others.

    It's probably why I also like Legend of Mana.

    I've seen the fifth element before but when I watched it last year is when I officially decided I liked it. so it wasn't age.

    I would have to know the year that FF7 came out to say definitively, but considering that RPG's and Adventure games have been on PC since... the beginning of PCs, surly it is true.

    PC does pretty much everything before console. I think about shooters. Wolf 3d in 92? Turok didnt come out till 97 and duke 3d till 96. Doom went to console after PC.

    You haven't given me a reason to steer clear of you!

    I liked it a great deal too, but never got the hang of the magic system (I only ever trapped one spell) and hated how character progression worked.

    Yeah it struck me as kind of odd because in the US we make basically no distinction between the two. I guess the Indians for whatever reason are a lot more anglophilic though.

    I never played Legend of Mana.

    To be honest I don't think I ever beat Secret even though I loved it a lot.

    But yeah, to me Chrono Cross was an amazing sequel-yet-not-a-sequel. I love how it tied it in to the first just barely enough at a few parts so that when it happened you were like "Yessssssssssss" but it wasn't blatant throughout.

    I also loved playing Suikoden 1&2 back to back. They are fantastic on their own, but there's another example of a sequel that isn't super direct about it.

    Fuck. Translink just announced that people in Vancouver should expect 2 hour waits for any public transit during the Olympics.

    You...understand I'm talking about a narrative trope and not gaming conventions, right? But Final Fantasy VII came out in Japan January '97, about ten months before the first Fallout and a year and a half before Baldur's Gate.

    Trapping wasn't ever necessary, and I liked the magic system because you could hit someone a few times and cast a spell all in the same turn, but then you'd be in the negative next turn.

    Also character progression worked exactly like every other RPG, it's just that the XP and levels went on behind-the-scenes, but it was still just kill stuff -> get more powerful.

    What's fucked up is that the news crew probably found a patch of ice where people were falling, and instead of warning people, they let that person crack their head just to get a good shot.
