  1. Alrighty, since this has slowed down I'm putting a deadline on final ballots/editing of ballots for the 30th of May.
  2. This is fine
  3. Better late than never! I think it's time to find out what games from the noughties (that sounds weird) are the favourites of EWB. Any game released from January 1st 2000 to December 31st 2009 are eligible. Voting instructions shamelessly stolen from my 90's voting thread: Voting instructions and other tidbits:- Vote for 15 games. Less is fine. More is not.- Your number 1 vote will receive 15 points, number 2 will receive 14 points, and so on until number 15 which will receive 1 point. Vote accordingly.- Your voting criteria is completely up to you - as long as the game was released within the determined time period.- Put the game name (full name please, no abbreviations) first and then in brackets put the console it was released for. If the game was released for multiple consoles put down the console you played it on. And now, my list: 1. Star Wars - Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords (Xbox) 2. Banjo-Tooie (Nintendo 64) 3. Pokemon Gold/Silver (Gameboy) 4. Dragon Age: Origins (Xbox 360) 5. Jade Empire (Xbox) 6. Star Wars - Knights of the Old Republic (Xbox) 7. Mass Effect (Xbox 360) 8. Soul Calibur 2 (Xbox) 9. Halo 3 (Xbox 360) 10. WWE Smackdown: Here Comes the Pain (PS2) 11. Super Smash Bros Brawl (Wii) 12. Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (Gamecube) 13. WWF No Mercy (Nintendo 64) 14. The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind (Xbox) 15. Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (PS2)
  4. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords Originally on Xbox, then I bought the physical game on PC, and then I bought it on Steam when my new computer had an issue with the disk drive and wouldn't read the discs. Worth it.
  5. If you like star wars it should be a definite get. Its not grindy at all. Even if you just do the story you'll only miss out on reaching the level cap by one or two levels.
  6. Just got out of NXT in career mode after toppling Kevin Owens for the second time on PPV (in our first match he got himself DQed by attacking my manager, Emma. Fair play Kevin). Couldn't be bothered sticking around in NXT and wrestling the same guys week-in and week-out so I immediately jumped into the IC title rankings. I've had a lot more success changing my finisher from a submission move to an impact move. Matches no longer take ten plus minutes just because my Signature move won't put opponents away. Bret continues to be the bane of my existence in showcase though. I hate having most of the objectives done only for him to lock me in a submission move and tap me out. Still enjoying it though.
  7. Echoing the sentiments on the new submission system being awful. While I'm happy they've done away with button mashing they should've replaced it with the blue slider from SvR2006 where you had to stop the dot in the zone to escape. That was a good system. I am enjoying the new pin and reversal systems though, and AI Rollins' tendency to chickenshit his way out of matches is fantastic (I was wailing on him with Reigns. I just nailed the Spear but he kicked out at 2. He then got out of the ring, grabbed a sledgehammer and hit me with it. Glorious)
  8. Very much a personal list for me. A mix of time invested/enjoyment/emotional investment. Very RPG heavy Top 10 too. 1. Dragon Age: Origins 2. Halo 3 3. Mass Effect 2 4. Dragon Age 2 5. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim 6. Mass Effect 3 7. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion 8. Mass Effect 9. Dragon's Dogma 10. Fallout 3 11. Bioshock 12. Super Smash Bros Brawl 13. Saints Row 2 14. Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare 15. Left 4 Dead 16. Pokemon Heartgold & Soulsilver 17. Saints Row IV 18. Tony Hawk's Project 8 19. Assassin's Creed 2 20. Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
  9. Krackerjak's spear is still the Britney Spear last I checked. Also I'd have his gimmick set to "crazy"
  10. As someone who never played 13 is there enough of a jump from 12 to 14 in terms of gameplay and content to justify a full (or near-full) price purchase?
  11. 1. The Agonist 2. Killswitch Engage 3. Judas Priest 4. Metallica 5. Machine Head 6. Five Finger Death Punch 7. Trivium 8. Chimaira 9. Anthrax 10. Lacuna Coil 11. Slayer 12. Throwdown 13. Alestorm 14. Nightwish 15. Hammerfall 16. Queensryche 17. Sylosis 18. Mutiny Within 19. Avenged Sevenfold 20. The Butterfly Effect
  12. I had that issue too when I first played it. I had to bump it down to easy after getting to Tien's Landing. Even then some of the boss fights are ridiculously hard, especially later on in the game (although once you get the Golem transformation form everything becomes stupidly easy). Trying an entire playthrough on normal and yeah, it gets quite difficult in places (surprised I've only died once to be honest).
  13. So with my Xbox 360 on the fritz again (my dog peed on it), I've started replaying original Xbox games. In between smashing through another Madden 07 franchise, I've started up Jade Empire again. I love the original setting (in comparison to other western RPGs at the time) and the combat system. But the one thing I had forgotten is how bloody hard the game is if you don't use the transformation styles (I believe they make the game too easy). More recent RPGs have spoilt me with regenerating health after every fight and standard enemies usually being mere cannon fodder as opposed to actual threats. Also your allies are bloody useless in combat if they're being used as attackers as opposed to support. Still love the story too even though I know all the twists. Surprised there was no sequel for it (although I think it didn't sell well which'd probably explain why).
  14. 1. Revan (Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic) 2. Commander Shepard (Mass Effect series) 3. James Sunderland (Silent Hill 2) 4. The Exile/Meetra Surik (Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords) 5. Banjo & Kazooie (Banjo-Kazooie series) 6. Alan Wake (Alan Wake) 7. Ezio Auditore da Firenze (Assassin's Creed series) 8. Solid Snake (Metal Gear series) 9. Link (Legend of Zelda series) 10. Mario (Super Mario Bros. series)
  15. And here we go! The top 4 as chosen by you, the EWB faithful! 4. Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64) (801 points, appeared on 9 ballots. 1 1st place vote) 3.
