Yeah the stats when more balanced make the better player overall, but it's just weird to me.

I finally went up Death Mountain and wrestled the one Goron. The actual wrestling in the ring was pretty easy, but trying to stop the rolling Gorons going up the mountain sucked.

Cleared most of the Goron Mines. Will hopefully finish it up tonight.

It will be nice when ratings matter in an NHL game. When you can pull off similar moves with Craig Adams as you would with Malkin... there is something wrong.

I'll still play the game because I need my hockey fix, but yeah.

Speed is the only stat that really matters. I guess maybe acceleration too.

I have NHL09 for the PC, which is the PS2 port. Is there anything substantially different between that game and now?

Yeah there have been enough changes year to year that its probably a different game between now and then.

Yeah, NHL 11 was the best year by far (of the skill stick generation).

twc, or anyone else that has played Zelda Twighlight Princess, quick question.

Is there anything to regular fishing? Or is it just to fill out your journal? Is there anything more to it? Getting 100% or anything?

But just catching the actual fish themselves, outside of getting that cat at the beginning of the game to open up the shop, does it add anything, or is it just a side thing to try to catch big fish for your journal.

Cooler is in the lake. Once you get it, 6 packs become available in shops, not unlike potions.

and with the seasons changing with the lake fishing, you can go back and visit the shop for seasonal varieties.

Here are the games I've recently tried to play but became bored of the cut scenes: The past three Call of Dutys, Red Dead Redemption (to an extent), Assassins Creed 2 (by far the worst offender. those cut scenes are laughably bad), LA Noir, and trying out Last of Us at a friends house.

I just want a game I can jump into and not have to pause every 3 minutes to watch a 5 minute cut scene.



The half life series of games technically has 0 cut scenes. Now, there are times where you need to sit and listen to some NPC talking to you...and usually the door you need to go out will not be opened until the NPC is done talking...but you always maintain control and are in your character. So you inevitably jump around the room and do stupid stuff while listening until the door is open to proceed. You can run away from whoever is talking sometimes and then you wont hear them, but you get the idea. You can shoot bullet patterns in the wall until the conversation is over.

Cut scenes are incredibly boring and time consuming. I don't exactly get a ton of time to game these days, and I don't want to waste that time watching a half baked story with poor voice acting.

Most games now a days are gonna have cut scenes and most of the voice acting is well done and by real stars. This isn't Ps1 with actors from Resident Evil 1.

It depends on the game. For example, in Bioshock Infinite, I often found myself thinking that the combat in the game was getting in the way of the advancement of the story. Of course, that game as a thoughtful and engrossing plot, and many games do not.
