The last few missions are madness. First you have to drive nuclear waste to Kang and Kodos' spaceship across Springfield. Sounds easy, but it's nuclear waste, so if you crash too hard, you explode and die. Then you have to do it again, but first you must ditch a black sedan, which you have to avoid, under a time limit, and still get to the spaceship in time. Then you do this mission a third time, only this time the black sedan is attacking you with the nuclear waste on the back of your car - and if he hits you, you explode. Under a time limit.
Good luck. There's even a Gamefaqs walkthrough where the writer just gives up at the last mission. I've actually done it, and that was a pretty wild feeling of victory.
I got permabanned from GameFAQs for derailing a COD4 thread with a detailed post about sex with dolphins.

And then your portable radio started to emit static and you died of heart attack and then woke up in a shady diner, welcomed by a female police officer?
To anyone interested: I heartily recommend reading Silent Hill entry on GameFaqs. It's amazing how detailed the plot and characters are.
I am one of those people who wrote a FAQ (shameless plug here). It wasn't a full walkthrough, but it still covered a lot of ground for a game that is pretty huge.
My reasons for writing it were varied. At the time, I was really into the game and frequently posted on the DQVIII message board on GameFAQs. There was no "Boss FAQ" available yet, which is unusual for a popular JRPG, so I took it upon myself to write one. If you look at the version history, you'll see that it took about a month to write the bulk of the content. Oh, the free time you have when you're in high school... :)
To this day, I still get an occasional e-mail about the guide - usually it's a question about the game, but sometimes it's just to thank me for my work. The FAQ has over 190k hits to date (GameFAQs has a "stats" page that contributors can view). So basically, I wrote it because a) I loved the game, b) there was a need, c) I like to write, and d) I had the time.
Pokemon wasn't released outside of Japan until 1998 and doesn't really fit with all those US version games from 1996.
It was technically part of "1996 in gaming" but not for the crowd this picture was intended for.
I've completed the original Final Fantasy on an NES using a single White Mage. 200+ resets in the Marsh Cave.
Edit for those who don't believe me: I can't really prove this, but back in the day there was a community on gamefaqs.com that was dedicated to completing unpromoted solo character challenges. They did it before me, I just kinda copied their methods. With save states it isn't too hard - just save frequently and run from most battles, manipulating the RNG.
Doing it on an NES is just very time consuming, but again not hard. White mages get a very very important spell: RUSE. This lets them raise their evasion to the point at which mobs can't even hit them. This even goes for bosses. RUSE stacks cumulatively, so it often takes 3 casts to get the effect. Most random encounters can be escaped, and with 99 potions you don't have much trouble healing up.
Once you get the Bane Sword, you can just use it on pretty much anything, even the final boss, thanks to some shoddy programming. Although a White Mage can't use it (you have to get promoted first), you can also stack the FEAR spell on the final boss to very comical effect! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yUT47Za7lPY
See: http://www.gamefaqs.com/nes/522595-final-fantasy/faqs/20939 if you want to try for yourself.
They did. This exact same discussion was had when Brawl was first released - it's more like Melee if you play in lightning mode with high gravity. Example thread from 2008: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/516492-super-smash-bros-melee/41341001 (scroll down past M2K's post)
This is a simple infographic of the Pokemon XY Legendary values tier for the Global Trade Station.There has been some questions of the values of the current legendaries as players are trying to finish their dex or chain trading to complete it. It is not a definitive guide as you can get lucky in trading at the right time!
You can not trade certain "Special" Pokemon with ribbons through GTS - so stop asking for Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Deoxys, Manaphy, Darkrai, Shaymin, Arceus, Victini, Keldeo, Meloetta, and Genesect - because it's not circulating through the trade economy and just clogs up the GTS.

If anyone is curious, this is me. I've been on Reddit for about three years but never made an account until now. If anyone has any questions I'd be happy to answer them, or do a separate post for it. I have to go back to work until about 4 EST, but after that, anything goes.
Also this explains why i have a shitton of friend requests on Facebook from total strangers.

Well, there was a poll on GameFAQs the other day.
It's pretty amazing that at least 12% of the voters were such fanboys that they said the data breach raises their opinion of Sony.
The real story: Nintendo had a contract with GameSpy, GameSpy was bought, and they've killed lots of matchmaking services already. Source
Has nothing to do with Nintendo's earnings nor their efforts to get you to buy a new console.
Soul trap, Jack of All Trades spell, and custom spell making in Balmora Mages Guild with Azuras star and Golden Saint souls. When you used a custom spell with fortify "attribute" and Soultrap for 3 seconds on self and looked at the ground when you casted it, the effects were permanent and stackable. I always used this to make a god character and then get Azuras star and Summon Golden Saint so I could constantly have a grand soul in a reusable soul gem, and then I would enchant an exquisite ring with Bound Longbow and Levitate for 6 points on self, constant effect. You were a god! You could fly, rain death from above, and were unbeatable. And that, is fuckin Morrowind.

This will be my last table-y submission to /r/wiiu for a bit, I think everyones probably had enough by now.
The source I found for this is WayoshiM, who made this table which I found here through the magic of google.
I retyped his table in google docs and made it pretty (well, pretty-ish. I'm no designer) which can be found here. Personally I think it's easier to view as a google doc rather than a imgur link, but for people browsing with phones and stuff it's nice to have a simple PNG to view.
If you see any mistakes in it (there will be mistakes) let me know and I'll fix them when I have some free time. :)
Here is a thread from way back when with people discussing/reacting to the Brawl CoroCoro issue: http://smashboards.com/threads/nothing-revealed-by-corocoro-on-december-15.127033/
And here is a current thread on GameFAQs where people are discussing what to expect from this next CoroCoro: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/633202-super-smash-bros-for-wii-u/69649331
Edit: I've also seen other posts here on r/smashbros with people saying the same kinds of things
This is the sort of game you're supposed to work at in small spurts, going as far as you can and then walking away when you get frustrated. You often find you've had an epiphany when you return much later, and you continue on with a great sense of satisfaction until you run into the next hurdle. If that description sounds moronic or totally unenjoyable, this probably isn't the game for you.
But some of the solutions are obscenely obscure, so if you do take on the challenge and absolutely must cheat in order to continue there are many FAQs available. Here's one for reference, but use it sparingly!
I'd just like to say that I was the first person ever to discover the hidden ending on Mario Kart 64 (at least on GameFAQs).
Cool story bro, I know.
Apparently the eeveelutions, Pikachu, Pancham, Hydreigon, Ninetales, Emolga, Riolu, Tyrogue, Ninetales though the third source contradicted this, Froakie, Mawile, Lucario, all do it and Tyrunt and Torchic do it with their heads.
Bulbapedia says you need to have 5 hearts of affection, ~~but in the third source someone seems to claim they performed it with 2.~~ My Hydreigon with 3 hearts wouldn't do it, so it seems you need 5 hearts.
Sources: Bulbapedia, Game Faqs thread, Another Game Faqs thread.
I wish there was a complete list of what pokemon will do it, this is really cool.
Edit: Gengar won't do it :( It seems to be mostly canine like pokemon, and some random things like Hydreigon.
People say that Apple checks it, but haven't actually heard from anyone that they got their app rejected it because of it. It's always a possibility, of course, but it's a pretty standard practice and I haven't actually talked to anyone who has gotten pinged for it.
Edit: Honestly unsure why this is getting downvoted. Many apps in the top free and top grossing lists have this requirement set in their app manifest and don't actually have a feature that requires the camera.
Plants vs Zombies 2, which was also a pretty huge game, has this requirement and doesn't have any features that make use of the camera.

I had the same issue when I built my new PC and remember doing similar steps to what he posted there. Hopefully this helps you resolve that issue.
~~Someone else mentioned this idea somewhere, I forgot but~~ it's somewhere along the lines of

EDIT: I found where it's from, it was from GameFAQs.
Read the WKTT transcripts here, they're hilarious:
BASTION: OK, we've got a live terror sighting. Hello, you're on the Richard Bastion show.
CALLER: Yeah, I'm on the train, and I see a guy who's a--terrorist. This guy's really suspicious!
BASTION: OK, good, what's he doin'?
CALLER: He's sitting there reading some religious shit!
BASTION: OK, now, how can you tell this shit's religious? What is it? What's goin' on with it?
CALLER: I'm sure it is! It's in a different fuckin' language! It's Spanish, or somethin'.
BASTION: OK, well, that is a sure sign, OK. What you're sittin' across from right there, is Al Con Queso. They're Spanish terrorists, the worst kind, OK? They're already infiltrated into all our shitty jobs, you know, you see 'em outside, uh, at various hardware stores just waitin' for the next strike. OK, they're the most dangerous of all, I cannot stress that enough. Now, you know what you have to do, don't ya?
CALLER: I sure do. I'm up 24/7. We're all trained. There's kids everywhere! We'll have to let fly with some bullets and see what this bastard's all about! Thanks a lot, Richard. Eat lead, you Al Con Keeso mother fucker!
[shots ring out, people scream]
BASTION: That's great, now that-that is a true American. I just want to give that man a Heart Stopper from Burger Shot, shove a slice of apple pie up his ass and salute that guy. That son of a gun loves America. You see? Bastion's Buddies, we're everywhere, and we're all about keepin' this country safe. Next caller.
For those of you that don't know, this post is a reference to this thread on the GameFAQs SSBM message board, which reached the maximum of 500 posts despite a similarly contentless OP.
The reason that it looks like the quality is low is because he was in the Whiterun instance while being outside it and it would be a real waste of resources to do high quality on something that you will only be able to occasionally spot from inside Whiterun.
I've seen people coming across Whiterun being filled with water several times before.
Someone on the BSN did some internet detective work:
Time for some e-detective investigation.
I think I managed to find the user posting that stuff.
A user on GameFaq called "Chickenhawked" said once that he was a "virtual lightning technician" and had been working with companies like SquareSoft, Bioware and Blizzard. His style of posting is similar to the supposed leaker.
http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/619315-final-fantasy-xiii-2/61910317?page=1 Here he states that he's a lighting technician and brags about it a bit.
http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/619315-final-fantasy-xiii-2/61842062?page=2 Here he writes about having worked with Bioware/Blizzard and so on.
He also managed to spell "lighting" wrong once, which makes me more suspicious.
So either this is a top notch elite troll. Or an actual worker.
Well it says where you "saw or heard" meaning it was in the past so it could have meant if you played it at an event instead of just a store.
Apparently the Mario Kart 8 survey said that as well but we never got a demo: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/700050-mario-kart-8/69135920
I'd love a demo, but I wouldn't be surprised if we don't get one because they're too focused on making the game and launching it on time.
Heck just give us a gimped version of the BestBuy demos, I don't care.
This game is like the video game version of being high off your ass, where it's like all of your experiences are a film reel that someone has cut into frames and you're unable to discern any kind of causality or order from one frame to the next. Hooray, you found this talking bear's lost lantern! Now, the next quest in the chain... plant some cabbages and fight the dwarf king! I'm just... I don't know how to describe it.
A lot of the SaGa games are like this for me too, even the "final fantasy legend" ones. Of them, I think saga frontier 2 is probably the least insane, but I'm convinced that most of this series was created under the influence of bath salts.
bonus: Here's a picture of you getting a barrel in your soul from the guy with a puzzle piece for a face in the mumbling bear town.
bonus bonus: Here's a faq that explains the dudbear language. Tell me this is not made by a crazy person. And yes, every dudbear in the game only speaks dudbear. They <em>never</em> speak a lick of english.
The flare and tornado spells are found on the "contain" materia. To obtain this materia, you must go to Mideel and in the acessory shop (or where it used to be) there will be a white chocobo. Speak to him and give him a Mimett green (theese can be bought at the chocobo ranch). Then choose to tickle him behind the ear and it will drop the contain materia. To use tornado the materia must be at level 3, and to use flare it must be 4.
FFVII's random number generator is fairly simplistic, and we understand enough about it to be able to manipulate it. If you do everything in a specific order, you can abuse that knowledge to get the golden chocobo in one try without any of the racing or other superfluous grindy stuff. So there is a way around breeding, and I fully advocate using it. Link
From the looks of it, it seems like gamefaqs.com. Basically, the demographic is all kind of gamers, however, I bet the demographic would be teenagers/ adults when these poles took place, since having a computer around the early 2000's was not too common, making children who love Pokémon not have participation in these polls.
Just chipping in to say that I actually PRINTED the script to Final Fantasy Tactics. That's how fucking good it is. The thing is, the plot is so complex that you lose track of it in the amazing mechanics of the game. I didn't get all its beauty and depth until I sat down and read the script from beginning to end.
Wont you join me on a search for the "Truth"? Here it is: http://www.gamefaqs.com/ps/197339-final-fantasy-tactics/faqs/14169 Go on, click it. You know you want to.
EDIT: THE SOURCE
I am sick to death of people saying steam does the exact same thing, it does not, it scans its own folder and asks you before hand if it wants to scan anything more.
Origin on the other hand scans your ENTIRE appdata folder every time it starts up. The best way around this is to sandbox origin so it can only scan its own folders.
EDIT: Memory is coming back to me, its the programdata folder.
Back around E3, ~~someone asked him a question in a bit of a disrespectful manner if he'd take competitive members who know a lot about the game for input on how the game is made,~~ [Did some more digging...see below.] to which Sakurai responded, "Have you ever made a game?"
Shame I can't find the clip on YouTube. But really though, Sakurai has clarified in later interviews that he appreciates what competitive players can do, just that he is trying to make a game that has a wide enough appeal not to alienate casual players who might get stomped on if he makes the game too competitively geared or tweaked in favor for.
EDIT: /u/Aeabela responded with a a good point that jogged my memory of what the exact exchange was. I did some more digging and remembered what the exchange was: to which it went as:
"During the roundtable some pro-guy stood up and challenged Sakurai to a match. If the pro-guy won, he would've helped him balance the game or something along those lines."
And in all honesty, I can see that coming off as a bit of both ways. Lighthearted, sure, but I could see it being lost in translation. Not necessarily with ill-intent, but as something that, perhaps a developer with pride could take as a jab. Sakurai's answer COULD easily be as "Well, look you jerk, have YOU ever made a game" or a honest, "Well, we can do the match but, have you really ever made a game...?" Sort of a playful jab for jab, and I could see it be just as that, too.
My apologies for the spread of misinformation. Everywhere I found reference to the incident, it was in really vague paraphrasing, and while I do recall hearing the clip (which is now made private on YouTube, bleh), I didn't remember the exact exchange until now.
What are^1 you^2 talking about?^3
I really don't know why you are saying this without explanation? Was it patched afterwards? Is there a video showing how? You cannot close doors slowly in Outlast. Please tell me how you can. It is simply a fact that Outlast did not let you close doors quietly when it came out. I can't attest for the DLC or any patches afterwards.
Edit: Why the fuck are there people saying this? Can you tell me how? I don't even care about being right, I have the DLC and I havent played it yet and it would be nice to know how to close the doors slowly.
Ok guys. I posted this question on the GameFAQs LoL Board, and they did the test for me: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/954437-league-of-legends/64063402 http://i.imgur.com/tAddi.jpg
So it does reduce his Q's damage, 80+(0.6) turns in to 80+(-80). He did 0 damage, but it didn't heal them.

God I love FFVIII - such an underrated game that receives so much shit talk from the die-hard VII and IX fans.

Less than thirty seconds of Googling.

Heal yourself, heal them, use recycle to restore pp, etc.
GameFAQs lists over thirty-two thousand games for the PC, not even including games released for other operating systems (stuff like the C64, Amiga, C128, DOS, etc are all considered separate platforms).
EDIT: For reference. The XB1 is listed at just over three hundred and the PS4 is listed at about three hundred fifty.
In New Leaf, you have to talk them out of moving in the four days before they pack up. Once they're in boxes, you can have someone else visit your town and "adopt" them, but you can't keep them.
If you want the villager back, you then have to cycle.
So make sure you talk to your villagers every day to hear about who is moving.
If GamerGate has taught me anything, it's that multiculturalism is nerd genocide.
I am playing through Dragon Age: Inquisition now, and there are some really interesting characters who are all over the gender/sex spectrum. I popped onto the GameFAQs PC board last night to see if I could trace a small bug (I realize that going to GameFAQs was my first mistake). I found this one whole thread by the aptly named crazy_gamerguy who was losing his MIND that there is a trans character.
(The best part is that he initially thought that wrong character is trans, he just needed to be really mad about it. And he was SUPER mad about it.)
>So what's the consensus among the game's fans? Was Iron Bull a good transgendered character and I just missed the clues and hints? Or was the character a sacrifice to the Sarkeesian cult of PC games?
>If a game desires to tell the stories of transgendered people or homo/bi sexuals and can do it without writing "everyone should accept people of these persuasions" on a masterwork maul and bash the player over the head with it then more power to them. Since I've been playing FIFA a lot lately lets call this a "ticking off" after an advantage expires: the referee is just walking up to the gaming industry and slashing his arms back and forth, no cards yet, no free kick. The game is fun and these particular characters didn't really get in the way of the story but once game developers decide they should build games to impress certain political movements things will degrade, rapidly.
But anyway, I thought of you lovely people here at SRD as I realized that GG isn't just on reddit anymore. It has spread its broken, sad wings and is strafing forums all across this great wide internet of ours.
sniff sniff GamerGate is all growed up now.
My favorite game by far is Final Fantasy IV. I've written guides for the older version of the game and for the newer DS 3d release. I could never get tired of playing through this game again and have it every console/handheld possible, even the wonderswan (which I bought just for ff4).
As for Top 10s, I really like the ones that you can tell the writer put a lot of thought into, like this one more than the ones that are easier to write like "Top 10 SNES games" or something like that. I really want to put more focus on Top 10s and have a few plans to make them more interesting and fun.
That's most of the world bosses and datacrons on Empire/shared side.
This one is just datacrons for both sides, if you were interested in that:

Just saying liss has an escape and her ult and a root and a slow. Not to mention flash and zhonyas. I'm not a pro but she's really safe and doesn't need to be tanky.
A lot of people initiate with her. She doesn't have great ratios but she does have 4 aoe damaging abilities so it helps to build big ap items and use her as a pick or dps mage. RoA doesn't offer much AP and no cdr which helps on a cc mage like liss who also has long cooldowns.
Just my take.
Edit: I came home and looked it up. Go here, its fairly recent. Lissandra has 2.55 AP scaling. LeBlanc has 3.7, Morgana 3.4/3.9 (guessing on how long in the pool of ow), Maokai (!) has 2.7, Ryze has 2.05 (just for comparison, he doesn't even build strict AP items).
The soul memory cap is 15m, this is something I've done extensive testing on. Someone who is 15m can summon and be summoned by 500m, invade or be invaded by, etc.
The calculators are completely wrong, SM uses a tier-based system. More information on one of my testing projects here-
This is not true. It is illegal. The law allows you to make a personal backup of a digital item you own, but this backup must be made by you, you cannot get someone else's backup. Yes this sucks, and doesn't make much sense, but the law is the law regardless of whether we like it. Some sources: Source 1 Source 2
Edit: I should note I am talking about US law.
It always annoyed me when I was in high school in the 90s and people were calling it the PSX, I never understood where the X came from. Honestly as far as I could tell it was just to sound cool.
I didn't put much effort into googling it, but this thread seemed to sum it up: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/691087-playstation-4/67100885
Edit: Boiling things down, what I gather is:
PSX might have been the name Sony was using while in development of the original Playstation (The Playstation Experiment)
There was a popular international magazine dedicated to the Playstation called PSX (Edit2) http://www.gamingmagz.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/PSX_Thumb.png
The magazines at the time (pretty much the only media gaming had in the west) used the terms SS, N64, and PSX to refer to respectively Sega Saturn, Nintendo 64, and the Playstation. This I remember pretty vividly, which is what annoyed me. It always looked like someone at Sony had paid a journalist to make the playstation edgier. But maybe the magazines just didn't want people thinking they were talking about Post Scripts, I don't know

heres a tip i learned to get more villagers without streetpass
but it requires that you haven't gotten the second villager
credit goes to super_yoshi over on gamefaqs bravely default forum
- Make sure to turn off autosave just in case
- After finishing the third quest the 2nd worker becomes available to grab
- Save the game at the adventurer (guy in red)
- Talk to the guy between the magic & sword shop (check Norende to see if you get the extra villager)
- Now talk to the adventurer (guy in red) and don't actually save instead go to title screen
- Go back and talk to the guy between the magic & sword shop (if done correctly should have 3 total villagers)
- Rinse and repeat till you get the 20 villagers or however many you want
Edit Heres the link
His Star Ocean 2 guide is 32,000 lines and ~250,000 words.
And it end with this...
>Note: This document is a complete rewrite of a guide I did almost two years ago. It retains virtually none of the original content whatsoever.
Based on the sum of the file sizes, his current count is ~2.5 million words, about twice the entire Harry Potter series.
You got a bad ending then, reload the save and make these choices, everything after will make sense. Oh and for the true ending DO NOT LEAVE
I'm just gonna quote from the Romance FAQ for Viconia, the evil aligned drow:
> You will have to find a neat balance between making fun of her, getting angry and being sensitive. One usual tactic I have is to be relatively harsh to her at the beginning of the romance and then when she talks of her experience in the Underdark and on the surface show some caring and consideration.
>For starters you must not seem weak in Viconia's eyes otherwise she will despise you. Thus, always choose options that seem to make you a more courageous and daring man that you are. She will think that if you are too nice to her she will be disgusted claiming this to be your weakness.
This was a common practice when the game came out. There are 3 heart faqs on gamefaqs that are years old.
I have no doubt that OP did it. Good for you.
I prefer the indigo Gamecube because it was the original color. Here is a popularity contest for best Gamecube game. My picks in no particular order (I wanna do more than 10 but I'll abide by the rules):
Yes, but they're owned by Gamespot now and Gamespot goes so far as to show a copy of the site on their own site in their own colors so it looks like two sites to Google. I was really mad when the site got sold, now the polls (which at one time were interesting) are nothing more then marketing research.
Yup, you'll need 50 stickers to use the background feature. There's a few sites that have found all the ar codes.
Apparently you can use a slider scale with 90 stickers and a stopwatch with 150 stickers (source), but I don't think it's possible to get that many stickers yet.
You're lying. This is an FAQ that lists the HP of and damage taken from Link's various weapons for every enemy in A Link to the Past.
The relevant enemy is number 106. It takes a damage value of 251 from weapon class 0, the boomerang. That value translates to a short stun with no damage. Even if it did the minimum amount of damage, the enemy has 16 HP, so it would only take 16 boomerang hits to defeat the enemy. Damage class 1, the basic sword, does 2 damage to him, so that's 8 hits with the standard sword.
I really cant wait to see what they do with Halo5's campaign... i've read some rumors about the game being open world now&imo that would be awesome if true.
I think even mentioning Steam's 30% cut as a negative thing is worthless. Because it's standard.
30% at the windows store. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Store#Details
Microsoft Takes a 30% Cut of Digital Game Sales http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/691088-xbox-one/70506948
from that same thread "Apple also takes 30% on in-app purchases."
I can't find a source for PSN's cut. Maybe it's 30% too?

He teabagged her if I recall correctly.
I do find it interesting that the testicles bit is not in quotations:
>In that incident, Naughright alleges that Manning pulled down his pants and placed his testicles and "naked butt and rectum" on her face.
But no that sounds pretty damned teabaggy.
> What it lacked most was a story
I strongly suggest you read this if you think Demon's lacked story. I personally think it's even more interesting than Dark Souls.
A poster over on Gamefaqs has found that there will be a "sage" weapon category, and found a bunch of new weapon parts. Personally, I'm looking forward to THE CHOPPER!

It's not a single quote, but the conversation in SH2 between James and Angela in the burning staircase always makes me feel uneasy and extremely sympathetic towards Angela's dark plight. I find it also effectively illustrates the power of Silent Hill to warp perception of the damned:
Angela: No. Don’t pity me. I’m not worth it....
The tone of Angela’s voice suddenly changes.
Angela: Or maybe you think you can save me? Will you love me? Take care of me? Heal all my pain?
James doesn’t respond.
Angela: That’s what I thought. James. Give me back that knife.
Angela reaches her hand out towards James.
James: No... I, I won’t.
Angela: Saving it for yourself?
Angela begins to walk up the fiery staircase.
James: Me? No... I’d never kill myself.... It’s hot as hell in here.
Angela: You see it too? For me, it’s always like this.
From GameFAQs.com's SH2 Game Script.
EDIT: I just wanted to add, the way James contemplates suicide with the knife for a second eerily echoes the In Water ending.
PS4: 18.8 x 13.4 x 4.2 inches (0.61231ft³ ) http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/691087-playstation-4/67825658

So 6206 PS4s at 399 (amazon.com) is 2,476,194.
And you can get more ps4s on short notice, I doubt the same is true of rockets.
I don't think OP means scripting in the games development or programming sense. I think he's talking about MyCareers mode and his dislike for scripted events.
At least, that's what many forum posts about the game seem to be complaining about when you google using those terms.
Not your fault you're confused, OP didn't explain himself properly.
I thought this guide was helpful when I was first learning about IVs and EVs.
To try to explain it in a different way, IVs and EVs both affect a pokemon's base stats. So lets say you have a Pikachu. Every Pikachu has the same base stats, and will gain stats as it levels up. On top of those stats, each Pikachu also was "born" with IVs. So let's say your Pikachu has these IVs-- 31/31/20/5/31/29. This means Pikachu has a 31 in HP, 31 in Attack, 20 in Defense, 5 in Sp. Attack, 31 in Sp. Defense, and 29 in Speed. IVs are added to a pokemon's base stats based on level, so at level 100 Pikachu will have 31 stat points in HP that have been added to its base stats.
EVs are also added to a pokemon's total stats. EVs are gained by either fainting pokemon or using Super Training. Each pokemon is allowed to have 510 EV points that can applied to each of the six stat categories (HP, ATK, DEF, Sp. ATK, Sp. DEF, SPE) but each stat can only have a max of 252 EVS. Due to this most people chose to train a pokemon so that it has 252 EVs in two stats and dump the remaining 4 EVs in a 3rd. So an EV spread may look something like this- 252 HP/ 252 Attack/ 4 Speed. For every 4 EVs your pokemon gains 1 stat point is added to its stats. So at level 100, if you train your Pikachu so it has 252 EVs in HP, it will have 63 stat points added to its total points. Different pokemon yield different EVs when you faint them, so people often use horde encounters to EV train their pokemon so that they can keep fainting 5 of the same pokemon at once. This is a horde training guide for XY and looking at it may help you understand how specific EVs are gained.
All this stuff may sound tricky at first, but once you get it it'll all make sense and seem so easy to understand!
> FF10 alone transpires along a single line from start to finish, but I don't recall people lobbing as many criticisms against it.
It got plenty of criticisms, but the reason it didn't get "as many" was because FFX did a better job at not feeling as linear. There are intersections (Kilika Forest & Macalania woods for example) and, more importantly, you can backtrack and revisit most of the game at will.
Most of FFXIII's levels felt completely disconnected. There was a cutscene in the transition, and you can't backtrack to revisit. Rather than feeling like a cohesive world, it feels more like different stages. Like playing Super Mario Brothers. 1-1, 1-2, 1-3, 1-4.
Another difference in linearity is all FF games are linear, but they use the linear portions to teach the player the world. When the game finally does open up, the player is already familiar with the layout. In FFXIII, the two are unrelated. When you finally get to an open world, it's something completely new to explore, but it also leaves the player completely lost except to follow the arrows to the next story objective.
I enjoyed the linearity of FFX and how well done it was, but I didn't like the linearity of FFXIII. It's the small details in implementation that make the difference.
My other biggest complaints about FF13: The level caps, instant failure if the lead character dies, and too much optional content is left for the post-game rather than as the build-up to defeating the final boss.
Edit: I just remembered another difference in the linearity between X and XIII. In XIII, the encounters aren't even random. Not only are the spots pre-defined, but so are the enemies that are inside those encounters.
Look at the chapter-by-chapter walkthrough. The majority of the content of the walkthrough is a list of the encounters and chests.
Well, it seems like CODE TALKER (love the codename, btw, very MG and MG:SS) is related to the Navajo Code Talkers that worked for the Allies during WW2. Who else do we know thats WW2 related? The Boss, Zero and technically Ocelot (having been born on D-Day).
Other than that, we don't know anything about him. Didn't Kojima once say there was a character over 100 years old in TPP? Maybe he was part of the Wisemans Commity (the people who proceeded The Philosophers).
I don't even know where to begin on "Those who don't exist". Besides Young Mantis, I'm stumped.
Edit: Here's an old discussion that talks about the 100 years old man, whom we saw getting modeld. Now we know his name is CODE TALKER
Edit2: Here's another site that backs up my claim that Code Talker is over 100 years old. I'm still looking for the video.
Edit3: Found it!
The uh "Translator" leak. I'm honestly really hoping for this one instead of the Gematsu leak.

You're holding feminists as a whole response for what a few people on gamefaqs.com said? What the fuck?
Found a great answer on a forum
"...it's the league average percentage of free throws that take up a possession that some statisticians calculated a while ago and have stuck with ever since. Free throws such as from technical fouls and And-1s do not take up a possession so TS% tries to account for this.
The problem is TS% can't tell the difference between the following two scenarios:
Scenario A: LeBron makes a layup, is fouled and makes the free throw. On the next possession, LeBron dunks it, is fouled, and makes the free throw. He scored 6 points on two possessions.
Scenario B: LeBron makes a layup. On the next possession, LeBron dunks it. On the next possession, LeBron is fouled and goes to the line for two free throws and makes them both. He scored 6 points on three possessions.
In both scenarios, LeBron made 2 FGA and 2 FTA. But he used one more possession to do so in B. TS% doesn't account for this and it penalizes LeBron in Scenario A.
LeBron has been at or near the top of the league in And-1s every year so his TS% is actually lower than what his true TS% would be if they used his PBP data. In other words, LeBron's TS% formula should be using less than 0.44 because he gets so many And-1s and uses fewer possessions to score his points than the league average."

> “There’s no point in releasing DLC a year after your game comes out when most people have already sold it back to Gamestop three times. So, that means getting it out early. That means day one DLC.”
I wasn't aware most gamers sold their games back. This must also include PC users as well.
Did you see the poll about age on gamefaqs?
A large percentage are just plain kids; kids, teenagers and young adults generally lack life experience and are often impulsive.
Perhaps we could take an age poll of r/games?
Braid had so much depth that it blew my mind. There are little intricacies in it that help tell the story.
Mind blowing example:
["First of all, the flags are flying the wrong way. They are flying towards the right, while Mario's flag flew towards the left. There is significance to this. From a 2D, horizontal perspective, a flag blowing in the wind to the right implies moving backwards or retreating. This is the same reason why US Army flag patches worn on the right shoulder are reversed; the flag appears to be blowing towards the soldier's back which implies moving forward or advancing. This is a hint that you are playing the game in reverse."](/spoiler)
Reference for above spoiler:
This might be a weird question, but is it ok if I reference this list and make a Top 10 List for a few of these lists on GameFAQs?
I'd make the Top 10 title like.. "Top 10 VNs as voted by the Visual Novel subreddit" and would reference this list as well as The_Dvls_Advocate for getting all the results.
Only thing I would do is make write-ups for all of them and try to make them appealing to the reader to hopefully get them to start reading VNs.
Well, you do realize during the first year of their existence they specifically said they hired employees who hated Halo, so they could turn it into something more accessible....right.
Just pulling out the relevant quote from the polygon article and confirming the relatively low cost of voice acting:
> "Voice actors are essentially paid $200 an hour to do up to three video game voices"
Skyrim apparently has 60k recorded lines, which ends up being about 20 hours.
So yes, cheap.
That said, in my personal opinion, voices help keep a game world relatively interesting, at least in comparison to having no spoken dialogue, or one person doing all of the dialogue. One of my qualms regarding a conversation regarding voice acting is that information is relatively sparse.
I can also say that the voice acting's quality may be limited to the quality of the script - as you said, some of the Mass Effect dialogue can become overly verbose. But there are other games in which the spoken dialogue (may) add to the experience. Hearing the back-and-forth in Arkham Asylum improved player engagement.
TL;DR voice acting isn't too pricy, the game's dialogue needs to be both well-written and meaningful
It actually has a significance as other people have commented.
> In Japanese, they like to attribute syllables from the language to numbers (ie for phone numbers on commercials etc.)

It can affect stats actually. There are hidden stats on pokemon called IVs (individual values) that sit between 1 and 31 on each stat. Having a higher value on a stat means that pokemons actual stat will be higher overall. So the idea is you get a Ditto with high IVs in a stat you wanna boost on a different pokemon, breed them while the Ditto holds a Destiny Knot, then it's supposed to pass down some of those high IVs to the baby. This gamefaqs post sort of explains it.
Also there are Natures, which boost one of a pokemons stats by 10% while lowering another by 10%, meaning some natures are better for specific pokemon than others. So by collecting dittos (one with each available nature), giving it an Everstone and breeding it with the desired pokemon, you get a baby with the desired nature.
What you're referring to is the unique system in DW1 in which your name determines your stat progression. This here is a guide as to how it works.
Incorrect. Planescape: Torment contains a total of four unavoidable fights. The one most often mistakenly omitted, of these four, is the opening zombie, since it's so forgettable. The other three are boss encounters. One of these provides a dialogue option which serves as a potentially satisfying alternative, but ends the game at that point, making the large portion of the game which comes after uncompletable.
Qwinn and Skard name the other three here for anyone wanting the spoilers. Qwinn identifies an arguable (but less concrete) fifth.
I put together a conservation guide for Gamefaqs awhile back with some obsessive methods for retaining ammo. Hard to believe it's been like seven years.
Being in a similar situation to yourself I used SAM to reset my "longest life" stats and my most kills with engineer (which was 80+ from playing on a skial server vs bots many, many years ago).
It's time consuming to do but you only have to do it once! Here's how you do it.
Here's one of the GameFAQ's topics where they did research.
But yeah, each enemy has a specific weakness type.
Agitha is weak to Fire.
Darunia and Volga are weak to Water.
Lana and Ruto are weak to Lightning.
Ganondorf, Midna, Zant, Ghirahim, Cia, and Wizzro are weak to Light.
Link, Impa, Sheik, Zelda, and Fi are weak to Darkness.
And Dark versions of commanders are still weak to the same element as their normal counterparts.
Also, I don't know if you'll be able to change the exterior of your house if the expansion loan isn't paid off.

Should probably knock out a Mechanic's FAQ if you're going to be going into that much detail.
Someone over on Gamefaqs has already done similar work with the child pairings.
Both Wikipedia and GameFAQs say it came out on the 19th, not the 17th. I should know, today (17th) is my birthday.

> the ps2 itself had an emualtor in it.
You are somewhat wrong there. The original PS2 had a PS1 in it. In a pretty genius move, the included PS1 chipset and RAM served as the sound hardware for PS2 games.
Years later, the PS2 Slim was introduced with imperfect PS1 emulation, which was only possible for very specific reasons. More information.
Thread with the changes.
Basically they've removed a lot of the low skill stuff and made the game a lot more like counterstrike
