Oh yeah there are a lot of words.

A huge chunk of them are pretty easy to skim through, though, and they don't -force- you to listen to the dialog or wait for the balloon to go away on its own so I've just been zipping through most of it.

People still play Ocarina of Time, despite the neverending tutorialness.

That game is -still- probably my favorite of all time, so maybe I just have a high tolerance.

Going through the Mass Effect trilogy as George RR Shepard.

Dear god I never realized how many side characters you can just plain murder in cold blood.

Also: male shep voice actor guy really doesn't hold a candle to Jennifer Hale, does he?

Though I already own it, that bundle is worth it for Dust *ALONE*.

I seriously have difficulty fathoming that entire game was made almost entirely by *one dude*.

False.

Mark Meer hams it up consistently, but unless your femshep is a pure renegade she is just commander mumbles. Hale is best when she's being a snarky bitch. Actually in ME3 I think Meer knocks the whole performance out of the park in comparison to Hale.

On that note, I have never lost a member to the suicide mission in ME2 until this play through. Watching Miranda claw at Shepard before falling limp after being crushed by a sheet of metal was kind of traumatizing. There goes my 15% increased damage for the after credit DLCs.

I pretty much bought it for Dust and Giana Sisters.
The chance to buy the whole bundle early and get everything for >5$ is nice, and especially since some new content will be added to it on Tuesday for everybody who pays or already paid above the average price.

Guild Wars 2's escape from Lion's Arch patch is really awesome. I love it.

Bravely Default is super wordy as hell. I don't think it's gunna get past that, I think it just is.

It does have some cool features though. Like you can 'auto' which just repeats the same moves over and over again for you until you turn it off, which combines super well with the ability to fast forward battles.

Additionally, you can just pick how often you get random encounters, everywhere from not at all to twice the normal amount. So if you forgot to explore a little nook in a dungeon you can just flip it off for a while and run and grab it without crying your way through thirty minutes of low level mobs that take forever.

The story line is super sketchy so far, though. Like, there was one part that involved actual children getting murdered. Plus aaaaall the sexism ever. The sexism usually gets called out, but the sexist characters' behaviors never really change.

Just got done with a storyline that was like "sure your sexist party member is kind of a dirtbag but LOOK AT HOW AMAZING HE IS COMPARED TO THIS FULL BLOWN MISOGYNIST SHITHEAD that literally calls women tools and kills them off when they stop being useful!! Now aren't you grateful he's not that bad?" and that kind of horrifies me a lot.

whether it's stretched to all hell depends on which browser you're using to look at it

my guess is that some size attributes got changed without actually scaling the image (or vice versa), but I am too lazy to actually verify that

EDIT: never mind, one browser had just been showing me a cached version or something
it appears to be intentional
which isn't very considerate, darq
image blocked, woo
