I just realized they are changing Ashley for ME3.

This is not the racist ***** I fell in love with in ME1. Damn you bioware, why must you continue to ruin everything.

Devilsfanatic
12-04-2011, 22:09
She actually looks better. I guess if you wanted her to be a *****, the bun works. Any girl who wears their hair in a bun like that all the time is a grade A *****.

And holy ****, look at the titties on her.

devilzrule27
12-04-2011, 22:12
I think they stole those titties right off Miranda.

But they changed her entire face from ME1. Just doesn't seem right.

I guess it's a little different, but there's similarities.

12-04-2011, 23:14
But why change here at all. I can understand changing the hair, i guess if she left the alliance or whatever otherwise flowing hair doesnt seem to fit the military background, but why change her face. Why is her face wider, why is her mouth and eyes different shapes ect? Just seems silly.

I'm hoping ME3 is good. The story in ME2 wasn't as good as 1, we've been over that before. But the fighting and weapons additions were way better in two, I felt.

Devilsfanatic
12-10-2011, 15:29
Good size. But honestly, in terms of recent analogy, GTA III, VC and SA were HF 2004-2009 GTA IV was modern HF. They took the fun out of the game. I've beat all three GTA's from the previous gen at a 100%. I didn't have that desire for IV.

I like what they did with GTA 4. I burned out on their formula during SA. I thought it was too big. I was so happy that GTA4 felt much more focused.

Naughty dog has always been a 3 and out studio. 3 Crash Bandicoots, 3 Jak and Daxters, and now 3 Uncharteds. I'm sure Sony will take over the series now and make more games, like the Uncharted vita game.

It's called Arkham World which just sounds dumb to me. Also I should add I got bored of Arkham City about half way through hence why I'm not excited for this.

Also despite it being 10pm I'm fucking bored and have decided I'm going to go out to the 24 hour walmart to pick up uncharted. So yeah I'm that guy now.

devilzrule27
12-10-2011, 19:44
I don't know. Some games sites have picked up on it as a game. There obviously will be another Arkham game, since publishers will push whatever franchises makes them a ton of money and considering Warner doesn't have many top notch franchises to choose from. And it will probably be made by Rocksteady again.

I thought 11 was pretty good with that stuff. 10 was brutal. Basically trade deadline your 3rd/4th season or so could kill the game. One time I couldn't get past it, but in me Nashville Be a GM, I somehow got past it.

Yeah, I haven't gotten it yet, when/if I do, it'll only be for the expanded BAP. I'll see how many boring seasons I can complete as a defensive defenseman, and whether I have the patience to get to the NHL to get back at Taylor Hall for last year's Memorial Cup final.

Then after that, I'd probably get drafted by the Oilers.

So, I have 1 achievement remaining for Alan Wake; to make it through the first DLC without dying or reloading a checkpoint. I tried it for the first time a year ago, made it allllll the way to the end, tripped getting onto the last bridge, fell in the water and died. I put the game on the shelf for a year after that.

This morning I felt motivated to go back and finish this. Took my time, saved all of my flares, ran past all the avoidable fights, breezed through the final fight by spamming my flares. Then I run up to start the final cutscene and the game freezes.

Also just finished uncharted 3. This is was the first time I didn't get frustrated with the final few chapters and have to "rage quit" the game for a while.

Haha, scared a few of our HF buddies on twitter with a couple of posts

NJ acquires Erik Karlsson from Ottawa for Henrik Tallinder, Matthew Taormina, and a 2012 1st round pick #NHL12Trades

NJ trades a 2013 first, Johan Hedberg, Bryce Salvador, Mattias Tedenby and a 2012 2nd to Vancouver for Cory Schneider and Mason Raymond #NHL12Trades

So here's our team:

Parise-Henrique-Kovalchuk
Sykora-Elias-Clarkson
Ponikarovsky-Zajac-Zubrus
Carter-Josefson-Bernier

Larsson-Karlsson
Volchenkov-Zidlicky
Greene-Fayne

Brodeur
Schneider

If only the Devils could pull that off.

We just beat Kakkara Desert, and we're in the empire now. The game starts getting really really good now

I wish Square could still make RPGs. Their current stuff is just awful.
