• IamTerics posted a message in the forum topic Does (score) size matter and are multipliers a good thing? on the High Score board.

    The most obvious answer is ,"It depends on the game." If you want a greater disparity on the size of points earned, then obviously your end score will be bigger. This is why high scores end in the are...

  • IamTerics posted a message in the forum topic Bladestorm getting a remake! on the Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War board.

    This is unreal. I randomly bought this off PSN a week ago. It was between this and Trininty and I thought Trinity looked lame. It was a complete knee-jerk buy. Here I was thinking that no one will eve...

  • IamTerics posted a message in the forum topic Videogames 101: games that make you better at playing games on the General Discussion board.

    I think Dark Souls is a bad answer to this question. It'd be way to hard as an introductory for videogames. My immediate answer was some type of fighting game. But even that can be hard(execution, pra...

  • IamTerics posted a message in the forum topic Anybody played this? Seems to be getting good reviews on the Astebreed board.

    I'm not in love as everyone else seems to be, but its definitely a pretty good game. It looks gorgeous and they have some great set pieces in the levels. Kinda bummed me out at how short and easy it i...

  • IamTerics posted a message in the forum topic Persona 4 Arena Ultimax Arcade stick by Madcatz revealed! on the Persona 4: Arena Ultimax board.

    I don't have a strong affinity for P4A ,but I think the stick looks alright. Better then the Killer Instinct one at least.

  • IamTerics posted a message in the forum topic Neptune's Pride - The Bombing Run #001 - GG! on the General Discussion board.

    Good game everyone, except to the people who dropped. I lasted way longer than I thought I would and even lost spectacularly. I thought it was great. What a massive and enjoyable time sink. I want to...

  • IamTerics posted a message on the post E3 2014: Coverage Uncovered.

    This is pretty great. I really liked seeing interaction with the people who worked there.

  • IamTerics posted a message in the forum topic Under-represented demographics in videogames - a matter of principle? on the General Discussion board.

    I really hate the phrase, "Its just a game and games are for fun so who cares!" There are a couple of variations but they're all dumb. Have you ever thought that maybe I want to play as someone my own...

  • IamTerics posted a message in the forum topic Guys... I don't think this game exists on the No Man's Sky board.

    Does anyone remember MirrorMoon EP? I bet it'll be like that except more everything, while still having a limited selection of player actions.

  • IamTerics posted a message in the forum topic Uncharted Discussion Thread on the Uncharted 4: A Thief's End board.

    I want more supernatural bullshit like one and two. I also want this to end. Just a really solid ending to the Uncharted saga. If the name is anything to go by, I might actually get that.

  • IamTerics posted a message in the forum topic The unpopular opinions thread. on the General Discussion board.

    I hate the way ICO plays. It feels like someone tried to make a platformer and then applied a physics engine to everything, including the simple act of walking and jumping. Never mind the fact that it...

  • IamTerics posted a message in the forum topic What cute game do you love the most? on the General Discussion board.

    Botanicula is the most heart warming game I can think of. I enjoyed it all the way through. No game has given me more smiles per minute, in recent memory.

  • IamTerics posted a message in the forum topic Which MMO has a bigger population ? on the General Discussion board.

    Guild Wars has a way of shuffling there servers around so you ,should be, always in a populated zone. Its a little bit more complicated than that, but that's why its easier to find people doing stuff....

  • IamTerics posted a message in the forum topic Strange interactions with strangers online on the General Discussion board.

    For a couple of days I tried to get in to Puzzle Pirates. It was fun doing puzzles and junk. And then this guy comes out of nowhere asks me if I want any items. I humored him and said sure. The guy gi...

    Basil was a true hero.

  • IamTerics posted a message in the forum topic Sucking at/Loving fighting games. on the Soulcalibur III board.

    I think weird single player modes are necessary for the non-competitive fighting game players. Injustice, MK, and Blazeblue all have their extensive single player stuff, and that stuff is really cool...

  • IamTerics posted a message in the forum topic Neptune's Pride - The Bombing Run #001 - GG! on the General Discussion board.

    Yea, I didn't even know how to handle the problem. Especially since Nova and Smiley were also attacking simultaneously. I don't even think I had anything to put up against Nova. I woke up and had 50 c...

    Obviously you guys just hate the color pink so much that you can't stand the sight of it, taking over stars.

  • IamTerics posted a message in the forum topic I'd label PS Vita *Playstation's Best-Of System*. Do you agree with such a label? on the PlayStation Vita board.

    I don't think of it totally like that, but its a pretty good description. I think it has a really diverse exclusive line of titles ,that wouldn't necessarily call mainstream. And I really like it for...

  • IamTerics posted a message in the forum topic Bad game design fundamentals; minimaps on the General Discussion board.

    I think you're going after this the wrong way. You mention the bad designs, but most of your examples are mechanics. And an individual mechanic completely depends on everything else in the game. In y...
