didn't he save their asses on the first mission? When he stayed behind to fight the soldiers, giving everyone else time to escape

oho yeah, remember that room where suddenly a monster breaks in, it's a small room with a bed, closet and all, i think you check a letter there, and then suddenly the monster comes in. That was fucking terrible, although i now have seen some videos on youtube how you can really mess with the poor AI in that scene.

I think the most awesome thing about the game was, how it was basically a H.P Lovecraft Call of Cthulhu Game, but just without the official licence. I had read a few short stories about Cthulhu mythos and had played a cthulhu game before, so after reading the first few letters i was already like "oh shit... oh shit, no, NO.. i know where this is going... and i already know it will fuck up my mind"

Which reminds me, in the cthulhu game i had played, your psyche actually did matter, you didn't just get a blurry screen when watching terrible things... no, you started to hear voices, and after some time, you couldn't control your character anymore, he said "i can't take this anymore" and put his gun to his head *baaamm*....

problem with Amnesia was, it had a veeery simple mechanic. It DID scare me, oh hell yes, when i was down in the dungeons, my light going out and all, it even scared me to the point, where i was just thinking "fuck.. fuck... FUCK... just RUN, just run and see how far you can get, of course you will die in a minute, but just try it, doesn't matter, just fucking RUN!!!"

5 Minutes later, after running twice through the whole dungeons in complete darkness, with no penality except a blurry screen, i realized... well, fuck, this whole survival aspect is bullshit. Even the monster that was there at the beginning, had just despawned. Enemies disappeared after some time.

In other words, it got me so scared that i accidently broke the illusion of the scary game mechanics in my panic

after that, unfortunately, it was like "well... fuck you, monsters, i know how shit works" :puck:

:schierke: The guy's allowed to have an opinion, you know.
haha, well sorry Walter, but i just remember how my "how would you imagine a 4th movie" thread was crushed, with a single "it will suck as hard as the last one" :ganishka:
and i did love some stuff from the movies, they were just mediocre in comparision to the manga

I think the guy has fought long and hard throughout his entire life, been through quite a lot, and it'd be a shame if it ended with him dying.
Ah, i could just hug you right now for this. Uh, well, in a manly way i mean... uhm... i mean.. ah forget it  :ganishka:

Garrus and maleShep way, i think thats what i meant :D

what price, now thats a good question. I have a personal theory, but i'm not really sure how things will work out. I want to see him tear down the pillars of the world, i want him to meet the idea of evil (do you know the "lost episode"?), i want it to try to convince Guts of its great masterplan, i want, i don't know, maybe even have Skull Knight trying to fight Guts because he can't believe a mortal being can resist the idea of evil, and then, at the end, i want to see Guts reject the idea of evil, reject God, with the dirtiest smile you've ever seen from him, and then... oh i don't know, i have a lot of ideas, but all of this does belong in the Speculation section i think :guts:

I'm actually storing a 30 year old bottle of scottish whisky for the day it will happen :ganishka:

Oh wait, he did Evanglion?? Awesome, didn't know that, thanks man. Well, my thing will always be Forces by Susumu Hirasawa. For me it's like someone constantly yelling into your ear "Stand up! YOU ARE NOT DEAD YET! Stand up! Stand up and fight! Forward, always march forward!" which is basically what Guts represents for me, the man who (for himself and his friends) walks through hell... to kill a god. I was wondering, you said you are going slowly through the manga right now, are you already at the point where he gets... well... the Berserk armor... or in other words, when "shit is getting real" :ganishka:

Welcome to the Abyss my friend. Hehe, would be better if you don't mention your love for the movies, because... well... let's say they were not appreciated very much by the community, myself included. My thing was anime series -> manga -> movies, and if you compare all three, all of the anime adaption were missing sooo much. The movies even skipped the whole Black Swordsman arc :ganishka:
Btw i'm pretty fresh to Berserk too, only discovered it in 2012, would be cool to hear your story how you got into it, we got a thread in the Miscellaneous section, check it out if you like
Anyway, welcome to the gang, enjoy your time :D

Video Games / Re: Mass Effect 3 [Spoilers]
« on: October 25, 2013, 03:54:55 AM »
I might be a little late here, i guess. Like over a year late. But i just finished the game for the first time last month, so in my case it's pretty fresh.
Loved the whole Mass Effect series, but when i heard about this whole ending controversy last year, it kind of kept me from even touching the game. Fortunately i kept myself from getting spoilered, all i heard was, that something had really gone wrong at the end of the game.
Well i guess that was one reason, the other might have been, that i learned a little too late, through my friends, that you get a freaking Prothean with the pre-order. That was also a bit of a downer, especially since i heard how essential it is, to have him with you, all the stuff you would miss without him. Of course it was possible to buy him later as a dlc, which i did, but didn't know that one year ago. So i was like "oh great, so the ending seems to be disappointing, and i missed the chance to have a living part of mass effect history as a crewmember". Well, but anyway, as i said i was now finally able to do the whole thing last month.

And now i get it. I thought this whole controversy would have been about, maybe not having a happy ending, Shepard dying or something like that. But i would have never imagined this.
So there is this translucent Child, telling me he is the Catalyst. Well, i dislike important characters being introduced in the last minute of a game or movie (and i especially dislike children in movies or games), but that's ok, i get this amazing room with a panorama window of the whole battle for the fate of the galaxy, awesome stuff. So let's see. Oh, the big plan is revealed.

So, you are telling me you invented the cycle, killing advanced organic species, in order to save organic life, because organic life will always at some point create synthetics, and it's an unbreakable law of the universe, that synthetics will always try to kill organics
Are you kidding me? That's it? In all those millions of years, while you were doing your awesome solution, did you never come up with the idea to, i don't know, maybe talk to one the species and their synthetics? Let me tell you a funny story, i was just on Rannoch and ended a 300 year war between synthetics and their makers, and i didn't even need giant genocide machines. Actually i even had to kill one, because it was rallying the synthetics to kill their makers. Oh right, the one thing you always want to prevent.
Look out of the damn window! What do you see? The Geth fleet AND the Quarian fleet, synthetics AND makers, working together, fighting for their lives, against you and your brilliant "solution".

You are no solution. You are the fucking problem!
Unavoidable synthetics vs. organics war? Hell, my pilot is dating a robot! Maybe, i say maybe the problem you described, existed once in one of your cycles a million years ago. But as you can pretty damn well see, you just have to look out of the window, we can solve this "problem", even without galactic genocide. Or did i waste 4 hours of my life on Rannoch? A synthetic even died there, to make peace between his people and his makers. You know what, just... just go. Leave the galaxy. Go. Maybe they need a problem-fixer in Andromeda, i don't know. But everything is already fine here. WITHOUT YOU.

And that's what was going through my head, when talking to the Catalyst.

Now for the awesome endings.
First time i played this, i didn't use the extended cut. That's how my friends told my i should do it, to see the difference. Well, it didn't really change that much for me. The biggest thing that had bothered me was the Mass Relays exploding, that was akward, especially if you have played The Arrival in ME2. So that was nice to see that they explained that better in the extended cut, with the Mass Relays just being damaged.
But aside from that, all decision are bad. No matter if it's extended cut or not.

The control ending. I never did that. Watched it later on youtube. The whole thing was out of the question for me. So you choose to become, what you were always fighting against? Interesting.
It's nice that i'm writing this in a Berserk forum, because this way i can ask a question which came up on my mind, when seeing this ending. To the people who used this ending, would you also enjoy it if Guts would become a God Hand? Seriously?
So you become the immortal Catalyst God-being. You are, if i use warhammer terms, now the God-Emperor of the galaxy. Nice. But aren't you, well, pretty much a dictator now? Well of course not, Shepard is an honest man. And what in a hundred years, a thousand? What happens, when you have "lived" 10 or 20 times as long as an Asari. If i would take that "universal rule of synthetics will always kill their makers"-garbage for granted, that would mean that Shepard becoming the Catalyst never really solved this "problem". I just switched places with the Catalyst. And now? What if this problem will show up again and again? Will i eventually come to the same conclusion as the old Catalyst? I mean, he/it spent ages looking for a solution, and he/it was the all knowing god-child, right?
Yes, it is unlikely that this would happen. But is it 100% impossible? No.
So much power shouldn't be in the hands of one person.

But granted, the sequence itself, especially with extended cut, look really cool.

Synthesis. The "Space Magic" ending. This was actually the one i used first, and when i didn't have the extended cut installed. Yes, i said space magic, because that's how it feels to me. What the heck is going on now? Is iron no longer a mineral or steel an alloy? Has it now become a living breathing organism, because of some green energy wave? And another funny thing. Throughout the game, Javik tells me we how his cycle lost, because they were all more or less the same, and that our strongest point in this cycle might be our diversity. That's what the whole trilogy told me, by having a mixed crew of all forms of aliens (well unfortunately no Elcor, Hanar or Volus) working together. And what do i do in Synthesis? I destroy this diversity, magically making everyone in the galaxy into Husk 2.0, without asking them.
All in all a pretty stupid message, if you ask me.
Oh, and what would prevent organic-synthetic beings from making new synthetics, who would then again, according to the Catalyst's golden rule, again make war with them.

And be honest, the green eye thing looked really ridiculous, hehe.

Destroy. The red renegade wave of vengeance. That's what i used after installing the extended cut, and i guess that's what i would use again, when i will replay the series some day. It's disappointing, that i can't send those genocidal machines to hell with a big satisfying Guts smile, without losing my friend EDI and the Geth at the same time. But compared to Control, which i find dangerous, and Synthesis, which is crazy space magic with a stupid message for me, the Destroy Ending seems to be the only one working for me. Or lets say, the least bad one for me. And no, it wasn't about having Shepard survive, i didn't care about that, would have been fine for me if he would sacrifice himself in that one too. Well, but if i would take the Catalyst garbage serious, this Ending also wouldn't solve the great big problem.

Nice endings. Maybe in the future, people might use the term "Mass Effect ending", when refering to a game or movie ending, which has logical flaws contradicting with major elements of what the people have seen and experienced before.

Well, that said, i enjoyed pretty much everything else in this game. It really was awesome, and i wish i had played it sooner :D
Mordin, oh Mordin my love, singing "Krogan queen" for Eve/Urdnot Bakara. Or literally every scene with Wrex. Or being reunited with Grunt, even for just a short mission. And that mission, wow.. wow, really, i didn't realize it when i picked up the datapad from that dead Krogan soldier. But then i remembered, that Asari on the citadel, talking about her husband being Krogan, fighting in battle. And then when i gave the datapad to her and realized it was that damn Krogan poet guy! And that was her... he was her, that... argh! I had brought them together on Illium in ME2. That moment really hurt.
Or the story of that traumatized Asari Commando in the Huerta Hospital. That story alone was heartbreaking. But then, when Joker told me about his family, them being farmers on some backwater planet... took me a moment, but i almost fell from my chair. Ok their might be a lot of 15 year old farm girls on that planet with the same name, it's not necessarily the same girl the Asari killed, but still...
And i do think i almost had tears in my eyes during the Rannoch scene "Does this unit have a soul?" "Yes..." Such a strong moment.
Well, there were also disappointing things like the Rachni. Really? That's all i get? From the first game onwards, i knew there would be some scene at the end of the trilogy, when "everything pays off", all the people you helped in the galaxy coming to your aid, yes i already imagined a scene with fleet after fleet emerging from lightspeed. And i thought i would have a damn organic hive fleet like the Zerg or Tyranids at my command. Billions of Rachni, and dozends of living dreadnaught-size ships, fighting together for the races they once had a galactic war with.
But what did i get? A textmessage, they help building the crucible. Wow, thanks.
And the last mission on earth... that one felt like it was taken from a WW2 game with scifi weapons, or from Gears of War. It was just boring somehow. Nothing really worth remembering.
Oh, and the Purgatory... probably the lamest Club in the galaxy... at least in the Darkstar Lounge i could drink until the radiaton alarms went off, haha. Ok, waking up next to Aria was also fun, embarrassing, but fun.

Oh, and by the way
Well, I did sell it pretty hard. I'm just glad you finally played it and enjoyed it. I would have liked your take on ME3 though, basically if you'd hate it or not, but oh well. Still, don't you want to join in the fun of ragging on it because it didn't end like this:

But I only ever made paragon "decisions." :judo:

It DID end for me like this :ganishka:
Well ok, without Mordin of course...

I can only encourage everyone to buy the Citadel DLC.
One of the best scenarios i ever played in Mass Effect. It's not just about the Party at the end, that some people might have heard about. The whole missions that come before that, this awesome "buddy-movie"-feeling. And one of the most dangerous enemies Commander Shepard ever faced.
It's the kind of goodbye i wanted to have from my crew. Not via some holo-screen down on earth. The DLC is probably nothing for someone, who just played the third game, but for people who enjoyed the whole series over the years, it's really the best way to have a last salute to everyone, before leaving the Mass Effect Universe behind.

Well, and if you don't want to buy it or don't have ME3 anymore, i recorded a video of it *shameless self-advertise* don't hang me, hehe, i'm no "lets player", its just one video i made for myself and my friends

But only one scene has a chestnut-shaped elf drinking cups of sake! God, i love the details in this manga :ganishka:
You don't know how hard it is after having expierenced Berserk, and then coming back every week to Naruto, to read a chapter full of... of... stick figures in comparison
(yes i said chapter, don't hurt me, they are called chapters there :judo: )

And no, no that isn't hentai. It's simply a scientific attempt on cataloguing every single scene containing a shower, bathroom, pool, or anything else that involves characters swimming or being in water, from all over the anime and manga history

makes sense, doesn't it?.........  :schnoz:

dammit, they even have Batman
Here the first Robin, Richard Grayson, attacks Bruce in the shower.
i just leave the rest to your imagination

Just what the... why... i don't even...
Anime Bath Scene Wiki is a collective database about bath and shower scenes from anime & manga and various elements involving them.
why would you need that?

oh lol, and they have Berserk, the scene when Guts and Griffith play around at that well and Griffith shows the beherit :ganishka:

Well said i guess. Since i don't watch Breaking Bad like the rest of the community, this discussions here are the only ones left for me to take part in, hehe
And it just made me read volume 13 again, so in some way there is a good reason behind everything

but you know what i mean, right after Gaston dies, all of the apostle show up for Guts, and it's game over

hm yeah but wasn't it like only 3-4 guys hunting him at the same time, from all the, i don't know, maybe a hundred apostles that are gathered there.
At the end they all gang up on him, and it's decided in a matter of seconds.
Maybe if he would have been running around with a sword, cutting down more of them, they would have ganged up on him sooner. Maybe too soon, and then he would have been killed before Femto shows up

almost all of the apostles were present at the eclipse, and we know how hard it was even with the Dragonslayer to kill some of them later. Ok he didn't have to fight guys like the Count there, but maybe with his longsword they would have perceived him more as a threat and would have been much more aggressive and not like "oh that guy has a broken horn, what can he possibly.. aahh my eyes!" I think they might have really killed him, if they had thought of him as a real threat and not just their next snack

1 1/2 hours on my first time reading it, i did this a bit too fast. Wanted to read through it all like as if it were a damn contest, lol
Friend of mine is now doing it quite different, just one volume per week, told him about this long hiatus and now he is afraid of reaching the limit :magni:

But wouldn't that technically allow you to run them over with your car in the game world, make them killable? Sorry but thats typically me, i don't even have the game but i already want to mess with the mechanics. I just imagine a situation, where you drive a burning car at full speed down the road, jump out, immidiatly switch characters, just in time to get killed by our own car because you were going for a walk at the end of that road.

A friend showed me 5 minutes of gameplay yesterday before we went to see a movie. I was wondering about this multiple-character system. How "realistic" is it? Are there really 3 characters walking around Los Santos at the same time? Can you use Franklin and just walk over to Michael's house, and he will be sitting there, watching tv or something? Or you meet Franklin while he's going for a walk with his dog. When my friend switched to Franklin, he had just finished doing some fitness training at the beach and he said if he would switch back to Michael, he could just be coming home from a bycicle tour with his son or stuff like that. So i was wondering, are they really in the game, doing this kind of activities, while you play the other character, or is it just a simple but clever illusion

Damn, they STILL make those.

Do you mean WW2 games, or Nazi Germans? :ganishka:
Well it works for both, think there must be something in the water in east germany, former DDR. Not sure if the NSU neo-nazi terror cell killings were a big thing in the international press

Oh well, guess i killed the mood a little bit. Let's just say, there are places in the eastern part of the county where i just wouldn't go at night. But then again, the same goes for any other area with social problems and high youth unemployment rate in other countries.

Back to topic, i have one question, especially for the PS3 users. How is the performance of the game?
I do not use my gaming console that often, just for exclusive titles, so i'm not an expert for the PS3 but i know that some games, especially the newer titles, do have frame rate drops here and there, i think the first time i saw this in FF13, and then sometimes in some beat'em'up games at my friend. Sometimes it's in games, where big explosions fill the screen, obviously a memory problem, i mean the PS3 really is an old piece of junk now, it's 7 years old hardware. So i was wondering, how it works for GTA V ? Everything running smoothly? Even in large fights with the Cops? Or did you guys discover any performance issues?
