Oh man you hit it right on the head! There used to be places a man could go. Gaming! Atheism! These were *our* clubs. Places where we were the default like we aren't anywhere else in life. We were the gatekeepers!

And look at them now. I share your pain, my fearless gender equality warrior bro. Look at them now! Now people have the nerve to TURN OFF COMMENTS ON A POST. That's pure CENSORSHIP! Why isn't everyone else angry about this?

At least we have each other. Those of us with thick skins who aren't professional victims need to take up arms and write long diatribes about these 'miserable sacks of shit' and bring up unrelated causes on web sites!

Yeah! Those chicks just need thicker skins! I mean, I've never been the target of that level of hatred because, hey, I'm a privileged dude on the internet (HIGH FIVE BRO!). But that just must mean I've got the thickest skin EVER. See, I've got this whole feminism thing figured out. I mean, a bunch of dudes on the internet told me about it, and let's be honest is there a better way to learn about feminism? Game, set, match! There's NO WAY! In fact I'm SO sure I know what it's like that I'll explain it to you! Thank god you all have me!

You can't change anything, so don't even try! Seriously, nobody can be held responsible for their actions, for reals... I mean think of the horror if we called people on their... Wait, what are you doing? I said you can't... It won't work... nobody... responsible... No no don't turn the light on.... MEEEEE!!! Noooooooooooo!!

Being a jerk and treating women like crap is ingrained in my biology, man! I couldn't do anything about it if I WANTED to! Making a flash game where you can beat up a woman who had the audacity to, um, make some videos that I don't have to watch or donate money to is, like, evolution and stuff! I have no control. Calling women who game online fat sluts is just the way human men are wired dude! I'm not responsible for anything! BIOTRUTHS.

I've got a pretty good outline so far, but to be honest, this lady seems to be doing a heckuva job of making an ending that takes your choices into account.

Nice find Creston. There, see Bioware, was that so hard? Just a few slides with text and it's a million times more emotionally satisfying and relevant to how I played the game than the stupid original ending.

The genophage and Quarian/Geth missions had lots of branches and took your previous choices into account. Some BAD stuff could happen based on what you'd done before. That is how the whole game should have been. Alas the egos of the head writers were just too big (if this is to be believed). And some rushing from EA probably didn't help any.

News Comments > Mass Effect 3 Ships; Review Roundup
52. Re: Mass Effect 3 Ships; Review Roundup Mar 6, 2012, 14:04 Yaogun
 
After hemming and hawing about Origin and stuff, I finally just said "screw it, I want to play the game," and installed it. Played for a few hours last night after it unlocked (yay western time zones!).

I'm enjoying it so far. I'm not far enough in to have any complaints about the plot. The console port is pretty frustrating sometimes, though.

Most heinous is the field of view. It must be set even lower that Skyrim's default, which I think was 70. I often get nausea and headaches from low FOV FPSes, fortunately in this case I think it's the third person perspective that's keeping it at bay. Still it's ridiculous that a PC game should be stuck with a <90 FOV.

The one-button approach to everything didn't bug me in ME2, but now that you can dive, roll, flip around cover corners, roll from cover to cover, climb over cover, etc. it's crazy that it's all dependent on the space bar. I find myself accidentally rolling, flipping, blah blah all the time because I'm not perfectly positioned for the context to be correct.

Also annoying is the lack of keyboard shortcuts for the squad menu, journal, codex, etc. Would it kill them to make it so I can press J to pull up the journal?

I couldn't import my Shepard's face (FemShep) so the character I've been playing since ME1 looks just a little different, which bothers me more than I thought it would. I finally fixed it by finding a lookalike face on the web and copying the face code in.

Overall though I'm excited about the game and enjoying it. I just got past the first couple on-rails intro levels and things have opened up. Can't wait to explore. I'm actually going to be OK with early decisions coming back to haunt me if that happens. I think it'd be cool if some one-off decision in ME1 ended up hosing me two games later. It's just cool that that's even possible. I can always edit a ME2 save game or download a save game to get the other endings.

Yeah so that was long-winded. Can't wait to play more today.

No, it went the same direction, it just loaded upside-down.


Ah you're right. My memory's getting fuzzy in my old age. I was thinking it was flipped left-right.

I hope they do justice to the original.

You mean backwards? That was the one of the best easter eggs ever.

Wow, that "men's rights" website is sad. Whenever I read stuff like that, or see people so vehemently dismissing the idea that men enjoy some privilege compared to women (like many in this thread), they just come across as pathetic frightened man-children whimpering at the thought that they might have to someday compete on their merits instead of having everything handed to them. Poor babies. And ironically they're often the ones putting on the internet tough guy act.

Guys, it's not a war. Women aren't the enemy. You don't lose anything if they get more equality or rights or respect. Gaming won't cease to be fun if it's not catered to white guys 100% of the time. I just don't get how this stuff can be so terrifying.

As excited as I am about the possibility of HL3, I think this might be grasping at straws.

Would be happy to be proven wrong, however.

That was embarrassing to read. Rejection happens, hold your head high and move on. Ranting like this just reinforces any negative impressions people had.

No. Mame4droid runs like a dream on my Kindle Fire but I can't really play *any* of the games (from pac-man to Metal Slug to Galaga) because the touchscreen joystick is just annoying as hell. Real controller sticks and buttons just can't be replaced with a tablet touchscreen for some types of games.

A hundred times this. It's a cryin' shame that there isn't a portable device with the app store/dev support/billions of games that the iTouch and Android devices have, but with the control options of a DS or PSP. I see all kinds of cool little games for my iTouch that I just can't play because on-screen joysticks are absolutely useless (to me).

Touch screens are great, but not for a great many types of games.

Had to put Steam in offline mode to play Skyrim this evening. It got stuck at "preparing to play..." I wonder if the forced patch is causing issues their side?

Funny that for a game that was only supposed to have "one-time online activation," suddenly a 3-install limit TAGES DRM pops up.

Ubi just doesn't get it. Not only the stupid DRM but the sending mixed messages about it.

Another lost sale here purely due to DRM. The list of Ubi games I have not bought due to DRM is getting long. At least $250 worth of games: Settlers V, HoMM VI, Annos 1404 and 2070, a couple of the Assassin's Creed games, maybe From Dust.

14 hours in and I just finished the Mage college quest line. Awesome set pieces and enough beef to be the main story in any other game.

Were the "cloak" spells in Oblivion? I love them. Throw up a cloak spell, summon a bound sword, summon a beastie to fight with me, wade in and watch the enemy health go down, down, down. At least some of the time. I like that I have to be careful. I hope that lasts and I don't end up outleveling the game.

I just discovered that you can hotkey stuff on the 1-8 (non-numpad) keys.
...
That might help some folks.

Thanks, wtf_man, I hadn't found this trick. I kept popping up the favorites menu to switch spells. Hotkeys = much better.

Fully and completely addicted to this game. I love the perks/skill-based leveling. I think my playthroughs will actually feel different this time.

With all the console-on-big-LCD-TV/PC debate going on, I'm curious: can one change the field of view on the console version? I can't imagine having to play this game with the default 60-70 degree FoV (I'm set at 100), and to me that would defeat the benefit of a huge screen.

Y'all are tempting me to try hooking up my PC to my TV, though. Lower resolution than my monitor but bigger screen... hmm...

I highly recommend making the changes to your .ini and field of view settings per this thread:

[url=]http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/615805-the-elder-scrolls-v-skyrim/60954909[/url]

The default field of view is ridiculously small.

Enjoying it so far! Going Breton pure mage this time around.
