    I love that game. They got smart and realized that the game is scarier if there's no way to kill the monster that's after you. If you have the means to kill the thing that scares you the scare factor is reduced.

    Yea, Amnesia lost the scare factor as well once you figured out how to make the monster despawn.

    Indeed Roggles. The feeling of total vulnerability, coupled with the fact that for the most part all you see is a shadowy outline or silhouette of the monster really makes it terrifying, even if it's just a video game. No developer can design something scarier than what your brain comes up with from that blurry image.

    It's funny, because you remember the water monster that tries to nom nom you? It's actual model according to the data base thingy is just a blue sphere. They made a scary monster by NOT making a scary monster.

    its like in dead space and dead space 2 when the only time you're remotely scared is fighting regenerators

    While I enjoyed dead space. I found it more creepy than scary. As Yahtzee said, the monsters act like attention hungry stars fighting for their chance at the spotlight. The monsters that did kinda freak me out were the female rammer things. They'd peak at you from behind a crate or something then charge at you honking like a mutant demon goose.

    I used to prefer Terran. Then I tried Toss, and realized that Zealot/Stalker/Sentry/Immortal/Colossus Death Ball is more fun than MMM + Tanks. And somehow, Toss just plays to my srtrengths/weaknesses.

    Anyways, I've been up since 11am yesterday, then went out to the soccer fields at 8am this morning, and I only got home a few minutes ago. Sunburned. Legs like jelly. Somehow still with eyes open. All for.... $100. Some of which I spent on a sub sammich and potato chips.

    I'm gonna devour this sub sammich, stumble to my bed, and pass out into a coma until GW2 releases.
    Or maybe just this Friday
    I hope you haven't forgotten my role in this little story. I'm the leading man. You know what they say about the leading man? He never dies.

    If you give in to your impulses in this world, the price is that it changes your personality in the real world. The player and character are one and the same.

    the only thing that remotely bugged me was that chick in DS2 getting her eye stabbed out with a screwdriver

    the "stick a needle in my eye" part was just "o, clever, that's all you got?"

    tho its difficult to gross me out

    Indeed, and it requires significantly less micro to use effectively. To be honest, the hardest part of Protoss is just mastering high templar or sentries really.

    MMM requires a bunch of multitasking of different hot groups, proper splitting, and so on. It's really annoying.

    honestly, the second thing you mentioned was the one that got me. Just cause the first time I did it I just thought I had to hold down the mouse button.

    ...

    yeeeah, I was like, "WTF!?" O.O;;;;;;;

    then I noticed the eyeball moving around and realized what needed to be done. Then it wasn't so bad. XD

    Some of the monsters in dead space just made me lol hard tbh. Like that part when there's like a gazillion necromorph children charging at you in the pre school auditorium was hilarious. Mowing them down with my rivet gun and watching them fly everywhere screaming was hysterical.

  13. #10033
    I can't play Dead Space, I don't like horror shooters. XD I own the game, and I've gotten like 1/3 of the way through it after like a year.

    On a Starcraft 2 related note, the best win is the no gg win. Making people ragequit = priceless.

    I love horror games. But I'm such a wuss. I have to play in the daylight or with as many lights on as I can in an enclosed room. (They can't get me if there's no entrance .)

    XD

    In other news, I played and beat Max Payne 3 last night. Was really fun. The controls...especially for taking and leaving cover were kind of unresponsive, but other than that I had a blast. The really cool fighting for your life segments where you get into severe low health and time slows to let you kill them all to live on were awesome. Well, unless you ran out of ammo with the primary gun you had. Then you just had to wait it out. XD

    But yeah, solid game.
