PowerStone


I would kill all of you to get a sequel to Power Stone on the PS3 with good online competition support. And you don't want to know what I'd do to get a new Darkstalkers, Tech Romancer, or Rival High Schools United By Fate game with online play.

Just bought Marvel vs Capcom 2 on the Psn store. If any of you have it, then let me know and we can play.

Don't know if anyone caught it, but here are the winners of the VGA awards, and my reactions:

Best Multiplayer Game: COD: MW2 (This is the best shooter of '09, but L4D2 had better Multi)
Best Music Game: Beatles: Rock Band (Hahahahahahahaha!!! Guitar Hero can SUCK IT!)
Best Driving Game: Forza Motorsport 3 (No surprise)
Best RPG: Dragon Age: Origins (Why? Just... why?)
Best Fighting Game: Street Fighter 4 (No surprises there)
Best Team Sports Game: NHL 10 (Meh. Didn't play it. At least it wasn't Madden)

and game of the year was...

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (X-BOX fanboys probably had mass suicides at this announcement)

Mind elaborating what's the problem with it? it's gotten good reviews and it's made by Bioware, king if western RPGs, and I was planning on getting it soon.

Games released in Japanese, but not yet in English, should have an equal chance.

Then again, I'm the kind of person who subscribes to the dogma that FF games are better RPGs than... anything else :lol:

There's nothing wrong with Dragon's Age, and it is a good game. But I played FFXIII already (I have a friend who read me the text) and it is better.

I don't care how awesome a game is, if I can't read any of the text or understand any of the vocals then I can't judge it game of the year. You can't even get a sense of the game.

If you want to win awards in America, speak English.

Or Simlish.

So, with Mass Effect 2 on the horizon, I decided to make a thread for those of us who intend to get it. We can talk about what version of Shepard we're taking into ME2, what choices we made in ME that'll affect ME2, etc.

So, I'll start:

  • Level 60 soldier, Male Shepard
  • Full paragon points
  • Saved the Rachni queen
  • Completed the "Asari Diplomacy" quest with the "Let me be a special buyer..." option
  • Treated Conrad Verner (the idiotic fan) with kindness, and told him there's a war at home, etc
  • Chose Kaidan over Ashley to survive at Virmire
  • Got Wrex to survive at Virmire
  • Completed the Cerberus side quest
  • Saved the Council
  • Put Captain Anderson on the council
  • No romance subplot (intend to romance Miranda with no "baggage")

Now, the choices you have to make that I've listed above (how I chose anyway) are apparently what affects ME2. So, fire away and let's all compare!

Twisted Metal 2 is not a sandbox game.


uh...okay.

I would kill all of you to get a sequel to Power Stone on the PS3 with good online competition support.


I would hold them down for a Marvel vs Capcom 3.

I'm replaying like heck to get my male Jacob Shepard to level 60.
Being Paragon on replay
Saved the Rachni Queen
Completed the asari Dimplomancy quest and told her I didn't want her blood money
Also treated Conrad with kindness.
Chose Ashley over Kaiden
Got Wrex to survive Virmire
Completed Cerberus sidequest
Saved Council
Put Captain Anderson on council

I'm also romanced Ashley and am planning to stay faithful, despite Tali being a romance option.

Something I forgot to put in mine was the romance thing which I'll edit now. I chose no romance seeing as there's going to be another romance option as well - Miranda, the Cerberus chick.

I prefer Ashley. From what it seems, none of the love intrests have her fun sense of humor.

I have a feeling that wether or not you gave the Ceerus files to the Shadow Broker will have an effect on ME 2 and/or 3.

As do I. Liara works for the Shadow Broker now from what I understand, so yeah, will probably make a difference.

For the record, I chose not to hand the over.

As did I. And you forgot something. Whether or not you even let Garrus and/or Wrex join your crew will likely have an effect on the story. Also, can you believe that you can romance Garrus and Tali, along with all the romances with the rest of the crew? There really giving you a lot of choices.

It's funny you say that...I've read the official list from Bioware and that thing about letting who you join wasn't on there.

I actually wonder if you can actually not have them on there. I haven't tried it, but if I recall, the "optional" party members (going by dialogue options) were Liara, Wrex, Tali, and Garrus. That leaves Ashely and Kaidan as the two compulsories, and one of them dies.

Did you ever try not letting anyone on your party VG Man? I just remember that Garrus, Wrex, Liara, and Tali were all Main-quests, and not just optional, I think?

Also, here's the list I've been going off. This is from the Bioware site:

1.) The decision to save either Kaidan or Ashley.
2.) Whether or not the player kills Wrex on Virmire.
3.) Whether or not the player decides to save the Citadel Council at the end of Mass Effect.
4.) The player's choice of love interest.
5.) Whether the player spares or destroys the Rachni Queen at Peak 15.
6.) The player's treatment of Conrad Verner.
7.) Whether or not the player completed the UNC: Asari Diplomacy sidequest.
8.) Whether the player chose to allow the Alliance to conduct experiments on Nirali Bhatia's body.

With reference to no.8, I chose to give the body back to the husband, and stop the alliance tests.

Same here. But I've read over the Internet on GameFaqs, the Mass Effect Wiki, and this Game Informer article seem to indicate you can leave only Wrex and Garrus behind and that it has an effect on the game.
