I hated that Star too. Learn to do Mario's Long Jump by heart and cut corners; it helps shave off a lot of time on that stage.

Today, in Mass Effect 2, I was given a mission to infiltrate a Merc team looking to apprehend the dangerous Sniper Archangel (!) but before I could leave on my mission I was poisoned by a Bartender, convinced a Turian to take out said Bartender, and then got to dance a little jig with an alien to some interstellar Techno.

Gotta love ME2...!

That didn't happen to me. Well I have something to look forward to on my next playthrough.





                    It's really not that big a deal. It's a one or two line conversation in Afterlife. Like a typical BioWare game, there's soooo much tiny stuff you can miss. It used to bother me, thinking I needed to see everything, but finally resolved myself to it being impossible.




Just found the 'Patriarch' in Afterlife too... AFTER the Archangel mission. I have a feeling he was connected to a side-quest with Aria BEFORE the events of that whole mission. It's strange he has such a colorful background and there was no Quest or 'Do You Need Anything' conversation option... Unless it was a Renegade Option...? Eh. Oh well! I like the Krogans for some reason. Hope to see more of this one!

There is a Galaxy 2 thread and if there is not a Mass Effect 2 thread, then someone make it.

Now if you excuse me, me and Vader are crying.

Dvader said:

You avatar makes me sad. Sad

I guess you saw it, at least we can say he went down fighting. Any lesser man would have lost that fight in the second round, it was epic watching Fedor survive. Like a Rocky movie.

I just saw it. Wow Fedor really looked small compared to Bigfoot. In round 2 he tried exploding to an escape multiple times, but Big Foot was just too big. Fedor did allright in the stand-up, but he is really slowing down and his combo's are gone. Now it is only overhand right left hook. But he was not finished, not even close. He was not even rocked. The doctor stopped it, but it is alright. Overeem would have decapitated slow and predictable Fedor. Fedor always needed is blinding speed, but alas that is the first thing to go. Plus his mind is not in it anymore, he used to change and adapt, not any more. Time to hang it up, his body is bruised, he breaks his hand way too much and he is getting tired. He is still the best HW ever and the greatest of all time in all weight classes. But alas time destroys all, except for Bolo Yeung for he is immortal

I had to see this on a shitty stream with muffled sound and Polish commentators. I cannot even see if a strike lands or not. Seriously watching MMA is getting harder and harder. Did you see Arlovsi vs Kharitonov? Man Sergei killed Andrei. Andrei you want to be a boxer? Keep your hands up and keep moving.

It's crazy. You have to do the long jumps, doing the ground pounds whenever there is a Chomp in your path, then proceed as fast as possible. I think that stage gave me more trouble than the entire rest of the game!

Yeah I saw all the fights, Kharitonov was badass. Is he someone to look out for cause the Strikeforce annoucers were slobbering all over him, though I cant tell if its geniune cause half the time they are just promoting.

Sucks to hear about the feed, I had beautiful HD. Poor Fedor's face in HD.

As for Fedor, yeah his time has come and unlike some atheletes that have no clue when to quit and ruin their legacy by playing too long Fedor understands it is time to stop. He is the greatest ever but he is human like the rest of us. He was simply out matched in that fight, he practically fought a giant, Silva had like 40+ pounds on him. While Fedor has beaten monsters before he just can't at this age and time. Me and my whole watch party were on our feet cheering Fedor on as he was getting pounded for 5 straight minutes. We cheered not cause we thought he would win, we knew at that point it was over, but cause he has the heart of a champion he battled to stay alive at all costs. To me it was one of the best fights I have seen, I am not a fan of watching ground game since I usually don't know what is going on, but for those 5 minutes it was some of the most gripping TV I have seen in a while. Fedor lost but he did not tap out, to me that was badass and he ends his career as a badass.

I can't believe Dragon Quest VI is coming out this week and I don't have a DS to play it on at the moment. Any OTHER game I can wait to play on the 3DS. Dragon Quest... I dunno if I can hold out!

Finally got around to beating Darksiders. It was a very nice ride, I'll be there for the sequel.

Played a tiny bit of BGE and another bit of Mount & Blade: Warband.
