idk, i kind of enjoyed tortage. the desert is a massive gankfest where there are lvl 50s running around in lvl 20-30 zones trampling people to death. got really annoyed yesterday when i ran out to some caravan post for a delivery quest and after spending 10-15 minutes realtime getting there, some faggot lvl 40 thought it would be cool to kill me while i was completing it. nearest rez point was ~500m away with a bunch of angry hyenas, scorpions, and bandits in the way. otherwise, in a group it was fun. sometimes it's easy to just see somebody near you and invite them to a group, most people accept because it makes it much easier to avoid ganking. i probably should have rolled in a pve server where people are usually friendlier.
I'm at 47 at the moment and I can feel my interest waning. I will probably go through another phase of 3-4 days of playing and that will be me .
By the way Haid, how good is it when you leave Tortage? When you go to the Kopshief(sp?) province, the game gets ridiculously fun.
funny story, i pmed a lvl 50 after he killed me in two hits and he sent back a series of tells apologizing and explaining his motives.

"When I was in Baghdad, we'd bring soldiers over to our camp over there, and we'd play this thing for hours on end," [Blackwater recruiter James] Overton said. "Every (military) place I've ever been to overseas, they've got like backgammon and Parcheesi and chess, and they're all gathering dust. But this is the stuff they play at home. And any semblance of home we can give them is best."
Should have stayed home and drank beer instead of going to work today.
Heh heh, he said "Wiener"...

it doesnt even make any sense considering the last two megaman games looked great on their respective consoles (7 and 8)
I dunno. Those games didn't blow me away on the whole Megaman Anniversary package Capcom put together for the XBOX a few years ago. They kinda sucked. I dig the 8-bit throwback, plus the fact that its going to be downloadable for all 3 consoles. I'll probably use my Wii though, just out of loyalty to the big N's history with the series.

So now that Okami and ICO are the only games I'm able to play, I decided on a couple things.
1) ICO sucks. Or I suck at ICO. Probably more the latter than the former, really, but I hate having that stupid AI girl get swallowed up by one of those shadow creatures and then having to start a few screens back, which means having to platform and solve "puzzles" that I've already solved three times... again. I've wanted to get through it at least once just because it turned out to really be a sequel or whatever to Shadow of the Colossus, one of my favorite games of all-time. I just don't think I have the patience for screwing up and redoing the same thing over and over and over again. Especially not when I've gotten so used to saving all the time on other games. Hopefully I won't need any knowledge of the game if I'm ever to play Team ICO's next game because I'm selling it online. You know, the one they'll say won't be related to ICO or SOTC but will later be revealed to take place between those games later on.
You have to be kidding me. Yeah, you definitely suck at ICO, as I never once ran into the problems you mentioned. I always thought the appearance of the underworld creatures was always very well balanced within the puzzle-solving. It was never overbearing. And the level design... god lord. It's perfection.
Pink inspired me to pick of FFIV for DS. I played that game to shit on an SNES emulator about 10 years ago or so. And again about 5 years ago. I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I'm currently enjoying it. So good, though. The little enhancements really add a lot to the DS version, too.
