Topic: Rise of Mythos / ancient summoner?

i just saw an advertisement for a game called “ancient summoner”: i looked at their site and saw 3 still pictures-one of which looks EXACTLY like Rise of Mythos! (it showed a battle-identical characters)

Topic: General Gaming / Creepiest Boss or enemy you have fought in a video game.

the Flood in Halo 2: i killed a Flood by shooting the Parasite sticking out of it, then another Parasite came along and crawled INSIDE it and made it get up…i swear it looked like the Parasite was re-arranging it’s organs while it was getting up…very creepy!

Topic: General Gaming / Official Enigmata Stellar War Thread

my favorite unit for fighting Villabos is the Korazon. their “penetrating shot” ability allows them to shoot right through his minions, damaging them AND him with every shot. they also have a skill that boosts the max health of friendly units and a skill that can confuse enemies-which doesn’t help against Villabos’ minions, which are immune to ALL bad status effects.

on a side note, the “arcane wrath” units always say “?” damage…i’m guessing that they do more damage when their health runs low, anyone really know?

also, in case you didn’t know, the “taunt” is essential for getting over 100% kills/gold for the achievements.

it just happened in mid-game: “a problem caused internet explorer to stop working correctly” and the window closed! i suspect an advertisement is doing something it shouldn’t…

Topic: Kongregate / PETITION: stop badging MMOs where you have to wait

i think you’re missing the real point here, Racefan. we’re complaining about games with “energy” limits, which you can only play for a few minutes per hour, unless you pay extra on a per MINUTE basis, receiving badges that would take months to complete ONLY because of “energy” limits!

click the button to make your character attack once.
wait 5 minutes (or pay 5 cents)
click the button to make your character attack once.
wait 5 minutes (or pay 5 cents)
-repeat a MILLION times…just for a 30 point badge…

if it was 100,000 raid damage i wouldn’t be complaining so much, but 100,000,000?! for a 12 attacks per HOUR game?!

the very idea that anyone would pay even 1 penny for something so lousy makes me sick…Kong should be ashamed to have something that bad on their Site, much less badges…and now they made it a “featured” game? so it pops up on their homepage?

i said this in a comment: how much did they pay Kongregate for that?

Topic: Kongregate / random crashes

for the last 2 days, i keep getting some sort of error that causes Internet Explorer to restart when i try to load the game. i don’t know if it’s some sort of problem with Kong API, or if something in the advertisements is the problem.

this has happened with many games, no pattern at all. sometimes it will happen the moment the game is loaded, up to 3 times, then the game will work perfectly after that!

this is a recent problem, which has never happened before, and ONLY on Kong!

Topic: Kongregate / PETITION: stop badging MMOs where you have to wait

just look: the latest badge is REDICULOUS! 100,000,000 million damage-in a game that requires energy PER ATTACK!! 1 million i could understand, but a HUNDRED? it would literally take MONTHS to get that badge-even if you did nothing but play that game 24/7!

the very idea of having to pay so much energy just to attack an enemy ONCE, so it literally takes HOURS to kill ONE enemy, is just plain idiotic! this THING should never have gotten ANY badges!

just today, the game says “de-authorized”, which means it cannot be played on this site! WHY?!

Topic: General Gaming / We Can All Agree That There Are About 4 GOOD Games Based off of Movies...

this thread reminds me of a magazine article “why bad games happen”:
reason #1 “licences that kill”-that is, having to pay lots of money to the movie people for the licence means less money to actually make the game.
reason #2 “feature creep”. the people in charge kept changing their minds about what the game should be like…

i think that article was written by one of the makers of Superman 64-often called one of the WORST games ever made…

Reason #3 stupid co-worker…one guy was so lousy at coding it took 2 other people full time just to fix all his mistakes…

there are some good Star Wars games around, like Rogue Squadron and some of the later Dark Forces/Jedi Knight games. (the early ones were lousy) Jedi Academy is one of my favorites.

Topic: General Gaming / Most Memorable Video Game Moments

one of my favorites was in Ocarina of time, when you finally find out who the mysterious Shiek really is…

also, if you finish the new 6th area in Portal 2 co-op mode you get a really silly scene…

Topic: General Gaming / Mann vs Machine tips?

tips: you can’t charge up the soldier’s “buff banner” by shooting a Tank. Tanks are also immune to Mad milk and Jarate.

i heard that the Sentry busters appear when a sentry reaches a certain number of kills-or is it damage-and they will keep coming till they succeed…BUT it’s sometimes possible to put a sentry in a spot that’s hard to reach (by standing on top of your dispenser) making the SB run around in circles…

i happen to own a Wrangler-a fancy gadget that allows manual control of a sentry-so i like to use it to make the sentry shoot the giants first.

one more tip: in later levels there will be a tank and robots with a bomb-and they will take DIFFERENT paths! this can be quite nasty if you’re not prepared (i.e. a bot might sneak past while everyone is shooting the tank)!

Topic: Kongregate / anybody here?

i get really tired of people saying that in chat-especially since you can look at the top of the chat window and see how many people are in that specific “room”. my favorite room usually has about 210 people!

on the other hand, it always makes me think of an old cartoon: someone’s car breaks down, so he walks into a “fun house” that’s closed for the season…he yells “anybody here”?

and several weird voices come back:
anybody here?
anybody here?
anybody here?
anybody here?
anybody here?
NOBODY BUT US ECHOES!!

Topic: Kongregate / How to spot a hacker

this reminds me of an obviously hacked score: the game was Ragdoll avalanche (or was it ragdoll laser dodge? definitely ragdoll something): in that game you score points based on how long your character stays alive.

and this guy supposedly scored 999,999,999 points in only 2 seconds! so obvious it gives hackers a bad name!

Topic: Crystal Saga / Ridcoulous

i’ve seen lots of adds for Crystal Saga on other sites: they show the fancy pictures of the female priest or the female rogue-and DON’T EVEN GIVE THE NAME OF THE GAME! i’m really sick of this idiocy of thinking people will play the game JUST because the advertisement has a picture of a scantily clad woman!

is there any way to INCREASE happiness? it went down when i raised taxes, and did NOT go back up when i lowered them, now i’m stuck with 90% happiness-which means 10% less population than max,and 10% less bonus from homes…

Topic: General Gaming / Saddest Game Ending

some of my top choices hae been mentioned: half life 2 (ep2), Conker’s bad fur day, so i’ll nominate an obscure one:
Freedom Force. one of the heros gets trapped at the end of time (something like that) undoing the work of the final villian, Timemaster.

one of the dumbest things i ever did in a game was selling a suit of armor-THEN realizing i couldn’t afford new armor…
