First time I actually voted yes and saw it come up on the front page too. Voting no and seeing come up on the front page has been a regular occurance for me.

Poor Dum, his topic never had a chance.

In other news, I played some Timesplitters 2 on my 'cube, and it didn't make me anywhere near as sick as PC FPS's do.  And I now take back everything I've said about console controls for FPS's.  Jesus fuck, I can't aim with my second analog stick to save my life.  Literally.

UAC! Fuck yeah!

I'm not particularly excited about Pirates.  Certainly not enough to put an exclamation point after the title.  If you lot say it's great I'll probably pick it up, but until then I'll just keep playing Harvest Moon.  Who knew farming was so much fun?  Besides Penguin, obviously, whose rampant alcohol abuse can be seen as at best a partial endorsement.

That link had some weird examples:

"It's so beautiful out, I'll think I'll shirtcock today." (verb form)

Who would decided that it is so hot that they'll wear a shirt but no fucking pants?  "Modesty precludes me from showing my nipples, so I'll expose my genitals, instead!"

"Annaconda, quit shirtcocking and just pick a place to eat!" (verb form, implied meaning)

If you named you kid Annaconda, you should expect that to forgo the eating for walking around with you crotch showing.

If you lot say it's great I'll probably pick it up, but until then I'll just keep playing Harvest Moon.  Who knew farming was so much fun?

Harvest Moon is my second favorite series of B-level games. Monster Rancher being the first favorite.

My wife is unhealthily obsessed with the newest Harvest Moon for Gamecube. I haven't played it yet; I've been too busy. Is that the title you're referring to?

#30 by Trunks

Yes, let us derail this HL2 thread into a Harvest Moon thread! Perhaps Foodbunny can chip in more stories of the horse named Bailey...

So, m0nty, can you recommend any brands of lube for Scott Peterson? He's going to need some.

Yeah, I decided to get the 'cube version because I figured my girlfriend might like it, and she refuses to play GBA games.  And I'm glad I did, because it's fucking gorgeous.  If I didn't have farm chores to do I could literally stand on the bridge and stare at the river all day.  Granted that's only 18 minutes of real-time, but still.  I'm not usually a graphics whore, but this game gets me wet.  I feel a little fruity hugging my cow every morning, however.

I pick-up all my chickens in real life!

Graphically impressive, eh? That was never a selling point of HM; I'll have to check out my wife's game and give it a look see.

I thought Harvest Moon was a FMV game where you played a detective, circa '94. Oi... Google tells me 'Under a Killing Moon' is what I was thinking of. Killing... Harvest... oh the line is so blurry!

I'll have to buy some chickens when I get financially solvent again.  I spent all my money on a hoe so I could plant vegetables, then found out from the manual that I already own a hoe (thankfully not as good as the one I bought, but still) that I just didn't see because I had to press the right trigger to look at the rest of the tool shelf.  I R teh dum.

But yeah, it's very pretty.  I was expecting something comperable to Animal Crossing, but only the characters are cartoony, the backgrounds (and especially the water) are just stunning.

UAC! Fuck yeah!

I wonder if marrying/raising a family is back. It was controversially cut from the last  PS2 version.

Yes, marrying is back.  In fact, if you aren't married after the first year, you lose.  Which I think it stupid, but then I can't really act surprised that there's no option to get my character sterilized and then nail every female or effeminate NPC between the ages of 15 and 50.  It's a kid's game, after all.

UAC! Fuck yeah!

This sums it up about as succinctly as it could ever hope to be.

Shadarr, a game that combined the 'screw anyone' bits of Fable, the 'raise a beasty' bits of Monster Rancher, and the 'small-farm community' theme of Harvest Moon would make my head explode.

One of you damnable programmers should make it happen. Singlehandedly.

That would indeed be a kickass game.  And despite my spooging over the graphics in Harvest Moon, make it 2D pls.

UAC! Fuck yeah!

I actually have a lot of sprites already drawn for just this game. My protagonist was a little Robot who was the equivalent of a recently freed slave. His goal was to make money raising monsters on his farm for the equivalent of cock fighting.

I did several of the monsters, him, a floosey-chick, a referee... All sorts of crap. Sprites out the wazoo. I promptly realized I could never program it, though.

#47 by Ashiran
2004-11-13 00:13:40
That could work, I'll be damned before I start coding a 3D engine no matter if Charles says it's easy.

I question the feasibility of robot sex.

#49 by Penguinx
2004-11-13 00:26:07
Most of that kind of game is stats-based monster customization. There'd be minimal involvement in the battling; I'd rather your treatment of the monsters influenced it's behavior more than have the monster directly controlled ala Monster Rancher.

An Animal Crossing/Harvest Moon like community with the stat-building, animal raising backend would be cool.

#50 by Shadarr
2004-11-13 00:42:29
Yeah, that all sounds cool.  I just think the robot main character wouldn't work with the "fuck anybody" game mechanic.  Unless part of the backstory is that he's a decomissioned military rape-bot.

UAC! Fuck yeah!
