I have a separate setup for older consoles. I will probably move it to that tv after a few months.

I like this tactic of announcing the release date the day before.

@believer258: personally I just put it on easy and let them go to town

Yeah, but that sucks all of the challenge out of it. And the potential for good challenge is there, it's just frustrating to see it squandered with a handful of bad design decisions.

Some parts of easy can still be kind of tough. Also if you're having problems like that maybe you should just go for different kinds of spells? Lots of the good ones aren't AoE. Plus I think you might be too concerned with hitting your own dudes, I usually just let them take the damage because tanks are so good at doing their job in that game. Or find a mod that will take off friendly fire.

Origins is one of my all time favorite games, and I would highly recommend playing it. As Animasta said though, it may be best for you just to play on easy because you're somewhat new to the genre, and they went for a pretty tough difficulty level that didn't really suit the games focus on story. There aren't any achievements associated with difficulty I believe, and the game will still be somewhat challenging.

As far as Dragon Age 2 goes, I would give it a shot depending on how much you like the first one. You have the benefit of knowing that it's not particularly good going in, and I think its the drop in quality rather than the level of quality itself that turned off so many of us. It has a ton of problems, but there are lots of people who manage to see through them, and I think you'll be able to tell pretty early on whether or not you're one of those people.

There are a lot of fast food places I've never been to. I would gladly eat at any of these places right now, cause i've been eating nothing but cheap sandwiches and cereal for days. However if I had to pick one, I would choose between Chick Fil A, Five Guys, or Panda Express. Also what's up with no Papa Johns? Way better than Dominos or Pizza Hut.

@rorie Any update on when this will be fixed? I can understand having some difficulties and this perhaps taking time, but there has been little communication on it. Just some updates on whether they're really on the case and maybe an estimate of how long it's going to take would be appreciated.

I don't think anyone's demanding that it be fixed immediately, as we know it can be tough, but informing us on how the effort to fix a major part of the forums is going seems like the least you guys could do right now.

I was just going to ask him the same thing, but then I realized that he's not being notified when we @reply him either.

Yeah, I feel like sending a PM, but that almost seems more direct or confrontational than a simple reply...

I don't want to come off as mean toward poor Rorie when he's just the liaison between us and the tech staff.

I have no such qualms! So I shot him a pm.

So everyone should remember being awake during the dark hour as an apocalypse happens right?

The rest of the world doesn't remember, but the members of SEES only temporarily lose their memories of the Dark Hour and everything associated with it in the time between the final battle and the actual epilogue.

Okay so I was misremembering. It's been a few years.

A new Chrono would be at the top of my list, although Square Enix would probably just fuck it up these days.

Chrono Trigger was a special project that I don't think can ever be really repeated. I know that there's Chrono Cross, but I personally thought that game was terrible and did a major disservice to Trigger.

and yet it should be easier to do than ever since those separate companies merged.

Key members of the original team are no longer with the company, though.

I don't think you need the same team for it to be good. If they took some of the concepts, themes, and principles of that old game and made something modern out of it then it could potentially be pretty awesome. Though yes, they would probably just fuck it up.
