Fire Mage's Achievements


Newbie (1/14)



  1. I won't be able to play this that soon, but I'm afraid of doing so. Apparently despite the decent critic reviews, many users are saying that the game has been oversimplified, dialogue is not that efficient or great, there's lack of emotion, the world is not as RPG-like, too much blandness copied from previous games, etc. Honestly, when I read the Xbox Achievements review, and he said that he didn't like Fallout 3 or New Vegas, but he liked this one, I feel like I'm going to dislike this one. For that to happen, they clearly had to have made some sharp changes, making it more mass-appealing it seems... I definitely don't think I'm going to enjoy the simplified dialogue though. I'd much rather have larger, more interesting conversation, and get rid of the main character voice acting.
  2. UPDATE: Alright, so apparently I can't buy any proper plane. I just went and tried to buy the Duster to see what would happen. It deducts the exact price for the Duster, then when I get the email, it tells me that my Shamal has been delivered. Great... --------- Original Post: Well, guess I won't ever be able to buy a Mallard considering the game won't get any more updates. Not sure if this happens to anybody else, but I bought a hangar at the Los Santos Airport for Michael, and got the email confirmation and everything. Shortly after, I bought a Mallard online (and the 1 million+ deducts from my account and I see the confirmation page!). After sleeping a few times, I check my email, and it tells me that my Frogger was delivered to my helipad. What? So I go to the airport and nothing's in the hangar. I go to the helipad, and a Frogger isn't there either. I reloaded my save, and tried buying the Mallard again. Same thing happens...
  3. Edit: The game fixed itself when I reloaded. I tried to see if I could delete the thread, but guess not!
  4. Same here. I have SEVEN different tabs (and actually different pages) open for the site, but that ad popped up on EVERY one and is blocking things.
  5. I don't have that many games left to play, but I'm still not sure. The largest game I have left on the 360 that I haven't played yet is Grand Theft Auto V. But I have about 10-15 games between physical copies and some digital ones that I haven't touched yet and just haven't had time anywhere recently to play. Even once I finish those, I will probably go back to some older games and mess around for achievements or finish DLC I didn't complete, like with Fallout 3 or Skyrim.
  6. I'm replying to this post waaaaaaaaay late, because I joined the conversation and then left. Even though it's ages ago and irrelevant, oh well, I'll still post, haha. I haven't played The Witcher 2 or Inquisition, though I've played the original Witcher and the previous two Dragon Age games. But overall, I have played a tooooooooonnnnnnnnn of RPG games throughout the years, from Super Mario RPG on the SNES, to Paper Mario RPG games, Earthbound, Final Fantasy games, Fable, KOTOR, Dark Souls, Chrono Trigger/Cross... There's really a lot and no point in my going on in a list because let's just say that I've played 100's of RPGs. But despite having played so many, I honestly still find the Fallout series and the Elder Scrolls series the most flat-out fun. If I had to pick any RPG to just play, I would pick Fallout 3, followed by Morrowind. I mean, there are many RPG games that have sooooooo much involvement (even if things got tossed along the way) like the Mass Effect series, which is amazing. But I will still be playing Fallout and Elder Scrolls for years and years and years. Even though both of them are very damn similar in gameplay (except for the first two Fallout games, which are also great), there is just something about them that I love and makes me pretty much always want to play them.
  7. Yeah, I never played stealth in Fallout. You are in a dangerous world where you need to fight to survive, not easily sweep through murdering everything. Granted, I guess it fits more if you are to invade a certain base or something. But for the most part, I just loved going guns blazing or with weapons like the Shishkebab. Stealth fits more in Elder Scrolls obviously, but you are super overpowered there. I don't play stealth in that either, because I find it more fun with the exploration and being a strong knight or mage, facing the unknown, than just creeping about. I have a friend who plays Elder Scrolls by stealth but does it with ramped up difficulties, and it's annoying to see him take nearly 30 minutes sometimes to properly stealth through a single room with a couple of enemies, so he can properly kill them.
  8. Yeah I just tried going on there and noticed this and the fact that Xbox One is down again. So basically Xbox Live has been generally fucked up in one way or another (mostly on the consoles) for 1-1/2 or more weeks in this year alone... nearly half of the month it's been.
  9. I don't have an Xbox One but for some reason couldn't login to Xbox.com to look at things, and I saw the status says Xbox stuff on any other device (except the 360--I don't know, haven't turned mine on yet) is messed up. I can't say about the Xbox One, but the Xbox 360 has had a lot more problems ever since the Xbox One came out, much more than it did ever before online. I mean, Xbox Live was already broken on both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One for like 1-1/2 weeks and got fixed, what, like 4 days ago? *knock on wood* Hope my 360 is fine when I turn it on in a minute. But you have to love that consoles with so many online features are always broken because the simple necessity of being online isn't working.
  10. Yeah, been that way since Wednesday night, at least for me. I tried to go to anything on the marketplace and nothing worked... Right now I actually have free time to get things and play them, but I can't
  11. Yeah, the Xbox 360 has already had these problems for 2 days. I couldn't access anything Wednesday or Thursday. Even if I go to Game Details, nothing shows up for games. And no searches return results, etc.
  12. I think the most annoying thing now is a double-edged sword: (1) My business lately and inability to play that often, which ties to (2) My dead friends list. Over half of my friends list is dead, in that they haven't been online in years. Then the other half of my friends list is not "dead" but they basically are to my account, because they've all moved to Xbox One and don't touch their 360's anymore. I don't want an Xbox One, and never will, but it still pisses me off to this day that 360 players can't see their Xbox One friends, other than the notice that they are online. Because I intend to stick with my 360, I really need to get some new people on my friends list so that when I'm able to play more often again, I'll actually feel like there is life in my list.
  13. I am staying with the Xbox 360 until I'm "completely" done with it. I have no intentions of ever getting an Xbox One. I have a backlog of 30+ games and DLC that I have but just simply haven't had time to play, which will take me a while. In that are things like Skyrim DLC and Grand Theft Auto V and Final Fantasy XIII, so I will be playing the system for a good while. As far as games I haven't bought yet, I think I only have 5 left: Dark Souls II; Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII; Tales from the Borderlands; The Evil Within; and Watch Dogs. Once I have completed my backlog and those other 5 games, then I will be "finished" with the Xbox 360 entirely. I have recently switched over to PC gaming (I used to be a PC gamer many years ago) and will continue from there, as I have outgrown the console world, particularly because of the many issues that I have had over the years (especially with Xbox and Xbox 360), and I don't want to continue buying and re-buying new systems. I will still play my Xbox 360 for as long as it lives, because even if I finish all of those games above, I still have many games that I want to replay or clean up achievements for. Even if I will "end" my console gaming, I still want to rack up as much achievements as I can for my Final Gamerscore! Because of that, I hope that support for the Xbox 360 lasts at least a good 3 or 4 more years. By that time, I will have completed everything, I imagine. Then, if I feel like it years from now, I will just pop in games and play some old single-player campaigns that I've missed, such as Gears of War. My biggest disappointment will be the inability to play those games online anymore down the road.
  14. Bumping a slightly older topic, but the forum isn't that active: PURCHASE. For anybody with such a question. Now, I didn't pay $60 for it. I got it for about $30. But I'm glad I purchased it. The game was REALLY fun, and if you really are a big South Park fan, you'll love it just as much as I do. It is also a really good game, and not just a South Park cash-in. I beat the game to 100% in about 20-something hours. But I already want to replay the game because it was so fun. Sadly, I don't have the time lately.
  15. I've never understood why people argue that paying X for Y amount of time (especially small amounts) is good. I mean... honestly, if this DLC was only 1 hour, I would only pay like $1.00 for it. I could spend $10 on other games/expansions far more worth my time. I only buy things full-priced that are supposed to be worth it (e.g., Skyrim, GTA IV, GTA V, Red Dead, BioShock games, etc.). Again, that all comes down to opinion, but most of those games I listed are well worth the money in content alone, but they're also usually well-crafted pieces. However, I would not really buy this DLC if the work put into it seems that cheap (even if you can still "enjoy" it to a bit). As far as the comment about about paying $30+ for movies... You can't really throw that argument about because it assumes that the person complaining about the game/DLC/etc. does what you say. But for me personally, I never really go to the movies. I go maybe a handful of times a year, if there's a film I REALLY want to go see or hear is a masterpiece. And even then, I usually go matinee and pay maybe $10 or less, without wasting money on anything else. Anyway... semi-long tangent rant here where I just jumped in, but was just reasoning against the people who try to justify this kind of stuff.
