@corruptedevil: After that hilarity I think I'm happy to play pubs..I don't think I'm going to be the worst player there any more.

This pleases me. You can't be the worst player there anyway, as there's always Russians.

Have any of you actually played League? Runes were the easiest thing to acquire and even if you stacked all of one particular type you'd be looking at a less than 5% boost to a particular attribute.

They gave the game an interesting flavour and something to theorycraft, it was never an issue and I'm glad Blizzard is allowing for some character customization.

Yes, I've played more League than I care to remember, and runes are one of the absolute worst parts of that game. It's like having a "loadout" or "perks" in an FPS, ie. absolute garbage.

The fact that you're charged to unlock new pages and have to buy the runes themselves with IP - taken from your pool that would otherwise go on champs and thus pushing you just the right amount into buying RP to get them instead - is disgusting. If HotS is going down that route it's emblematic of their overall intentions with that game, sinking my interest levels from extremely hyped to zero.

Why so much blood? That's entirely the wrong direction to take League.

I see there's a "new player free trial" but what about a "returning player free trial"? Been thinking about coming back but not sure if I want to spend the money on a month's sub only to rediscover why I left in the first place.

Apparently there's a Recall Program that will do just this. Anyone mind hooking me up? Steam is BM Panda.

Also, nowhere except a Kingdom Hearts conversation will you hear more uses of the phrase, "up-it's-own-ass".

And "convoluted" from people who don't know what it means.

Kingdom Hearts' story is super simply, I don't know what is wrong with you guys. I mean, in KH3D, Xehanort's plan is revealed as pulling himself from various times into one time to create a small army of himself. What's confusing about that? It's just dumb, silly, and totally awesome fluff. But people will look at it and say "DUHHHH I CAN'T FOLLOW THE GAME'S LOGIC BECAUSE IT'S SO ALIEN TO MEEEEECONVOLUTEDDDDDFROTHFROTHFROTH" and dismiss it.

Glitch vs. Glitchless?

The first one was dope (at the time, the gameplay is hella dated now), the second one was the low-point in terms of story because convoluted anime bullshit, 365/2 nopenopenope, BbS was great all-around, 3D has the best plot reveal ever because it's so ridiculous and dumb also good gameplay.

I wonder if there's a particular reason for playing the Chinese version of the game? I've heard how the Japanese version of Ocarina is preferred over the US version by speedrunners because it has fewer frames or something but I've never seen a Chinese version before.

The Chinese version is on a piece of (somewhat official, don't worry) hardware called the iQue. OoT on iQue doesn't have as many frame drops during the scene where Ganon's messed up version of Hyrule Castle crashes at the end, I believe? That might be wrong, but it saves frames somewhere. Maybe in the text.

I wonder if we're going to have to change the Kotaku joke to Giant Bomb now...

First and second were easy but I was sure I was going to fail pretty hard on the third and fourth. I guess not. Was really hard to look at those squares for more than a few seconds, now my eyes hurt :(

I don't want to have to wait for this game any more.
