Been a while since I posted on Facebook, but this needs to be on there. What game were they on about?

Some japanese games just won't load with the boot disc... you have to have a jap console.

They will boot on US and EU DCs if the laser is in a good condition and if you use the bootloader properly. Sometimes you have to try different timings when swapping discs.

Yes, DC's SII! I hate the bloom of the Xbox version.

Nice way of kicking those punks to a bloody pulp before the screen goes dark. Then again, it's actually realistic for Ryo to lose. No matter how kickass you are, when there's that many enemies, you're dead meat.

I thought this was very awesome. One of the hardest challenges in gaming (getting the Invincibility cheat on GoldenEye 64) with a steering wheel! I don't think my time was that low even with the pad T_T

I was spoiled, my brother unlocked all the cheats on mine and I just used his file. But that takes some dedication to do that with a wheel of all things.

Poor Soul Reaver:

Let me tell you, this game ate up a lot of weekends and late nights. Even with that extra time in, we didn't have enough days to finish the game the way it was imagined. There was just too much stuff. Designers had planned the forges and powers that went along with them. One day, we had a come to Jesus moment where we just had to look at the (extremely large) overhead map and just start Xing out areas, powers, and abilities. It was painful and difficult. Each forge was tied to an ability, and each ability was supposed to unlock a new area, AND new mechanics. So it was all interwoven. Each cut was not minor.. it literally tore apart pages of well thought out design. (It was like killing your baby.. but Game Devs are the only ones who cry over it.. and people who find out about it later LOL). It was cut about 2/3 into the game. I think all the remaining glyphs were cut at the same time.. sometimes having too many ways to kill a Vampire can be bad too.. we realized there was a lot of redundancy as well. It takes resources from every department (Character, Environment, Engineering, Audio, FX, UI, Design, and Production) to get a single feature realized, so we made cuts that helped as many departments as possible, and sharpened the overall experience.

[...]

Any flat area like that was probably a secret area or pathway that got cut.

[...]

The Priestess, several vampire Hunter types, Demon designs, and vampire variants were all thrown out due to time or just plain not liking the design. I even tried to make a modular demon design so we could swap in parts and make different mix-and-match demons. That idea didn't last long. I tried some Sluagh variants and Vampire Wraith designs too.. and some Spectral creatures that nested in and around the Elder God. I have them all on a hard drive or CD.. somewhere.

The Undercity (which I loved.. LOVED) would have used a lot of pulley/chain puzzles to create walkways, portcullises, and drop stairwells.

[...]

You would need shift at will, passthrough, glide, wallcrawling, and water immunity for undercity I believe.

[...]

Well the Undercity just didn't work technically. We split the streaming into two haves but didn't have time to reconcile the visibility limitations for playable space. We didn't have enough memory to do vistas either. It literally got the point where if you looked left you could see half the city and the other half disappeared, and if you looked right the opposite would occur. It is, of course, possible today, but you'd have to know how to add a level to the system. It was influenced by noted architect Lebbeus Woods. I also like the lighting and look of http://riversforgotten.com/ so it would fall along those lines.. some areas claustrophobic, and others vast and beautiful (and too much for a Playstation 1)

(Source: Daniel Cabuco, former Crystal Dynamics lead, August 2012.)

Then again, I didn't really like the original story. I prefer how it ends with Defiance.
In SR1, Raziel was supposed to kill Kain and wipe out all of vampires, thus healing the world, and it was Kain's plan all along. Yeah, the whole 'aliens' concept introduced in the next games and Raziel's sacrifice for Kain are rather lame, but I really prefer for Kain to be alive. I just like him too much. SR2 and Defiance aren't as genius gameplay-wise as SR1, though.

BTW, this pre-release brochure is a fun read. In the 90s, even the PR was better.

Yes I am kind of going all out on this thing. I havent had a PC for a about 5 years, been missing PC gaming and I want a bad ass system god dammit. To make things worse I have to buy EVERYTHING thats needed like a mouse and keyboard and monitor which I dont have, so its not like I could just get away with building the tower and leaving it at that. I might end up buying a cheap mouse and keyboard and eventually upgrading to the items linked but I doubt it. I am super spoiling myself with this thing, yes thats a $300 graphics card, and a fucking beefy one at that. The whole shabang is gonna cost about $1500-$1600, only other thing i have to buy is windows. Pretty bad ass christmas present to myself, dont cha think?
