It's hard to tell where you're conflating George Lucas and LucasArts (for example, I don't think George Lucas has anything to do with this game), but LucasArts has certainly come up with a ton of other good ideas since Star Wars. Monkey Island, Full Throttle, Grim Fandango, Outlaws, Maniac Mansion & DOTT, the non-terrible Star Wars games, etc.

As for Lucas himself, I guess Indiana Jones used to be okay.

I would bet that the majority of Diablo 3 players really only want to play single player & LAN/friend style co-op

I think it massively undermines your point that you think LAN co-op outnumbers people who want online co-op. People don't just want online co-op to play with random strangers, they use it to play with people they know, because it's, you know, 2012. I use online to paly games with my relatives, coworkers, other friends and their friends. LAN play hasn't been relevant for me since I graduated from college, in 1997. People who "don't spend their time on gaming news sites and forums" have probably never laid eyes on a LAN game in their life.

If a co-op game is online only, I could see it as an inconvenience; point against. If it were LAN only with no online, it would be a bizarre throwback from the turn of the century.

The problem with this game is that it’s going to be on the Xbox, so it will be pg13. They won’t be allowed to make it as dark as we would like for it to be. So it will ultimately end up being an epic fail.

Are PC games supposed to be darker than console games? This is something I hadn't heard before. Most of the controversial games in the last few years have all been on the consoles.

Star Was on the other hand is a generally PG property to begin with.

When you're discussing religion and you get to a point of "Well, an omnipotent god could do it," there's not a whole lot more to say. In the case of the idea of an afterlife where said omnipotent deity gathers spirits and rewards them for actions in life... either you've already bought into all the presuppositions leading up to that, or not. There are at least a good half dozen major beliefs regarding the afterlife, and I hardly believe that most Christians teach their kids that Hindus believe in reincarnation and let them make up their own minds.

A rewind feature would be aces for Sierra's crop, although it wouldn't help you in situations where you were supposed to throw a shoe at a cat two hours ago to make friends with the mouse he's chasing so that the mouse can chew through a rope that has you tied up in a completely different part of the game.

If you're not a fan of adventure games the Sierra ones are going to be a real chore. There are so many cheap kills. The Lucasarts adventure games were less annoying in this respect but it does provide some chuckles when you die on something silly or unexpected. I'll just walk over this way and EATEN BY WORM MONSTER! Game over! Restore?

I'd say skip it if you're not into adventure games already. I vaguely remember playing one of these games so I'm interested just to see what the story was all about. I'm enjoying it so far. I'm thinking I'll skip the EGA versions. (space quest 2 and 3)

The kills were a big part of the game series though, thats what save is for I actually disliked some adventure games habits that came out later and had ZERO deaths, basically held your hand. People complained when the first Two Guys prototype came out and didn't have any player deaths (they were there in the 2nd prototype though

If Prez isn't an adventure fan, SQ, KQ and LSL are almost certainly what he's not a fan of. Broadly speaking, they encapsulate almost everything people don't like about adventure games. Pixel hunting, nonintuitive solutions (or not acknowledging intuitive solutions), arbitrary deaths, getting stuck because you didn't get random item X fifteen screens ago, etc.

In the case of Golden Axe the Genesis version had an extra level, a different ending and a survival mode added on. But yes, the arcade version looked better.

Witcher 1 has pacing problems, in my opinion. Act 2 and 3 kind of drag, and everyone hates swamps. Just hope this Cyberpunk game doesn't have a sewer level.

Isn't that true of most pen-and-paper roleplaying games?

Both my computers have practically the same IP. But it might not be the browser. After your post I clicked the link and it was $60 again. Then I tried going directly to impulsedriven.com and it was $40. And now when I click the link it's $40. I don't even know.

Edit: And now it's $60 again...

4096x4096 would be 16x larger than 1024, not 4x.

There is something wonky going on. My desktop (and my work computer) shows $40 no matter what the browser (Chrome, Firefox, IE), but on my laptop only IE shows $40 and the other browsers show $60... except at some point while I was typing this it's working on my laptop in all browsers now too.

35 GB is the HD space required, I don't know where to find how large the download is.

It shows $39.99 for me. I'm pretty sure it did a few hours ago when I first looked, too.

Most Americans pronounce Larry as Lair-Ree, as Sepharo said, not Lah-Ree.

As Creston said, my problem wasn't the length per se, but the repetition. "More testing!" was a line that I got plenty sick of. 1. Get new toy. 2. Get an easy map with new toy. 3. Get a hard map with new toy. 4. Then another one. Repeat a few dozen times, adding in plot maybe every sixth or seventh iteration.

It's probably because I did play Portal 1 first that the second seemed to draaaaaaag.

I used to be quite proud to say I hadn't purchased a single Valve title since the Orange Box, but I recently picked up Portal 2 on sale. It was cute, but about 3-4 times longer than it needed to be.

That was my opinion, too, but I've seen several people here bitching that the game was too short. Myself, by about 2/3 of the way through I was wondering why the game wasn't over yet.

Co-op was fun, but it had the same pacing problems.

Blizzard has become a lot like Apple. They make very well crafted and unique products that come with unreasonable terms of use that customers wouldn't tolerate from any other company.

To be fair, people just recently put up with something similar for Mass Effect 3.

How so? I'm not defending ME3; it's a broken piece of shit in MP, and the SP... well, we've talked about that enough.

But it DOES have an offline mode. You can't play MP in offline mode, obviously, but the SP works just fine. Admittedly the offline mode was broken on launch, but it works just fine now.

Creston

I was under the impression (from a lot of complaining posts) that you had to install Origin and authenticate online before you could play the singleplayer, even if you bought retail discs. Also that you were locked out of your DLC while offline. And I guess a forum ban can get you locked out of your Origin account? Some of the problems seem like they're sliding down the same slope, at least.
