Oof.

@  zephyrX9 : (26 September 2016 - 08:05 PM)

Sipher made a sarcastic remark about Sakamoto's skeeviness. Derrick called him an a**hole, and insulted his art, which was a low, unnecessary blow.

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 September 2016 - 07:43 PM)

What did Derrick do?

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 07:42 PM)

That makes sense, thank you.

@TheMightyMollusk WWE Raw is on tonight. By the third hour, it'll probably feel the same, minus the actual physical trauma.

I think I'm just too used to metal to not understand the lyrics.

it's a vile interruption, chess the scripture way

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 03:49 AM)

I've had versions where the issue doesn't come up (or at least doesn't come up in the part I notice the most), but the version that got remastered for Bluray and DVD releases have it.

@  Nevermore : (26 September 2016 - 02:05 AM)

I initially misheard "flying tools of torment" as "we're flyin' into some torment".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2016 - 01:08 AM)

If it's a problem with all released versions, maybe the original audio source was itself damaged?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 09:30 PM)

I wish they'd relase a remastered version that fixed the audio and included at least had an option to have the text crawl rather than the credits at the start.

@  Telly : (25 September 2016 - 09:27 PM)

tryin to buy the movie from amazon for $20-ish. the price of it has been fluctuating like crazy. not a day has gone by that it hasnt dropped to one price and then gone back up a few hours later. never seen a price fluctuate so much

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:57 PM)

Then again, a lot of versions of the movie had pretty bad sound quality, even the most recent blu-rays mess it up in places, so it's not as much our fault if we misheard stuff.

@  Arazyr : (25 September 2016 - 07:28 PM)

When I first heard it, half of it may as well have been in a foreign language, for all I could make out. (Of course, I can say that about most music...)

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:14 PM)

I can't remember entirely, and I can't "hear" anything but the actual lyrics now, but I remember "I am born to hurt you, I'll break the boundless sky" as how my brain parsed the first words.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 07:01 PM)

So what did you hear?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 06:39 PM)

I almost completely misinterpreted the lyrics for that song for ages, and when I did find out what they were I thought my idea of the lyrics was better.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 06:29 PM)

So apparently the 2016 remake of "Instruments of Destruction" is out. I'm still waiting for an Amazon download to become available, but the clips I heard thus far sound cool. They're using the uncensored lyrics!

Well, on Saturday it will be here. Probably my second-most anticipated game of all time (behind KOTOR 2). So far, those of us who don't mind being spoiled by IGN and the like have found out a few things about the game's plot, and seen video highlighting the differences in gameplay.

For those that are curious, here is some non-spoilerific info:

* Your first-game save-games do in fact import to the new game, including which NPCs live or die, and grant your ME2 character bonuses based on your prior level and alignment.

* The game seems much more like a shooter and much more action-oriented. The physics of biotic attacks have been somewhat reworked.

* Several new alien species will be introduced in this game, including at least one that can be recruited into your party.

* As well as several old species.

* At least one party member from the first Mass Effect is still recruitable as a party member in ME2.

* One of the subplots of the first game figures prominently in this one.

I already have a huge backlog of games due to recently buying a bunch of older titles at bargain basement prices from Newegg, but I think ME2 will take precedence. I only played once through the first one though.

I hopefully will have enough funds to pick it up launch da but even if i have to wait it'll be worth it.

I played through the first one twice, could never break level 50 but i feel my second playthrough was the best so i'll be carrying that one over.
I really really hope they made it easier to use Biotics, havign to hkold down Rb and pause the action became a pain in the ass so i just stuck with overload and used that all the time.

Nope, whole new weapon and armor system, makes things like that incompatable.

Paid off the preorder today.

Midnight opening next week. I'm getting it on PC and will be at least installing it that night.
My laptop still has enough power to play games like this.

Though I think this is the last year my laptop will be good enough for new games.

I already have my definitive save (with a decent amount of paragon points) ready with all the side missions completed etc. I'm looking forward to see what my results will be in ME2.


But I'm curious to see how Garrus and Tali will react to my "renegade" play save.

Depends on how you did Garrus. He's pretty renegade himself, if you used the right conversation options!

Yeah, Garrus is the "Cop that doesn't play by the rules." He's always annoyed with how C-Sec can fail to catch a bad guy, becuase of all the red tape. He'll do anything to stop a criminal. You can either encourage that, or discourage that over the course of the game.

wonder if there will be any controversy with this game . I recall a dev mentioning something maybe jokingly about love in a Elevator.

Livin it up while I'm going down. Sorry

Can't wait for this to come out . Hopefully the game won't be buggy but we are talking about bioware. Usually their games are so good the faults are overlooked.

A major upside to current generation console games is that the developer can actually update them just like PC games.

True but ME1 was abandoned by Bioware like it had the plague.

Sure we got one decent DLC with Bring Down the Sky, but then they threw pennicle station at us and disappeared.

Heres hoping ME2 doesnt suffer the same fate. Considering there that Cerberus network thing for DLC i doubt it but crazier things have happened.
