You don't in Origins if you're a female romancing Alistair.

And I'm not even talking about getting to see his dick - just some ass. Just contextual ass.

You get to see his ass in The Witcher 3. So celebrate.

I'm not even talking about sexualization. I'm just talking about both participants of sex being naked. There's literally no good excuse.

Also, the boyfriend just came in and said "the devs probably don't want to bother making male ass." This is why I legitimately think I could date Rushy.

I feel really bad for A&A.

Anyway, let's talk about how amazing Ori and the Blind Forest is. Because it is.

Okay. Now we've solved the mystery. Now can this thread go back to being about playing video games and not Rooster's Top Picks Thread #2?

It just means A&A should start posting again and stop being such a wanker.

Shut the fuck up, Andrew. You don't even know what you're saying.

But yes, he should start posting again.

Ori and the Blind Forest is actually a really good platformer. Its art style is beautiful and it's quite challenging.

I am playing Wind Waker via the magic of emulators.  I have only partial experience with this game from playing a demo some time ago, so this is largely a new experience for me.  Anyway, when you first meet your boat (I can't say I'm a fan of the fact that your boat talks to you and is a character and everything), he tells you that he has no sail and can't move - and then in the very next line, says that he's brought you to some island or another.  Wow, great fucking writing, Nintendo.

Couldn't he have brought you there and then lost his sail?

Boats can still move without a sail, Saddam.

He's also a sentient sailboat and spoilers. I'm sure he figured out something.

You can move without the sail, it's just incredibly slow and tedious. Considering time is supposedly a factor in rescuing Aril, you can't afford to spend two weeks slowly cruising from island to island.

This is my life, Saddam, you should know this. The King of Red Lions doesn't need a sail, as said, he just moves at breakneck snail speeds without one.

I'm sure what you're saying is true, but the dialogue in that scene was still confusing and contradictory.  It struck me as being lazy work on the part of the writers, and it really sticks out in a bad way, because if there's one thing that the rest of this game isn't, it's lazy.  And I still don't like that he talks to you.  Part of the immersion of being this cool, self-sufficient sailor going on whimsical adventures and the like is lost when he does things like interrupt you and say, "Oh, sorry, we're not going to go that way," and all that.  Bah.

In other news, I have finally returned to my AssCreed odyssey.  Revelations was a bit of a disappointment overall.  There were a few neat additions, like the hookblade, the new setting (I'd still have preferred multiple smaller cities to one big city, but I'm guessing that they keep that to the numbered titles), and the more creative missions, but for the most part, I felt like it had strayed too far from the roots of the series without offering enough good innovations of its own.  You do hardly any actual assassinating in it, the "local" story about Constantinople and its princes is convoluted, uninteresting, and ends on a very unsatisfying note, the romantic subplot was kind of icky (come on, Ezio, date women your own age), the den defense minigame was retarded and I made sure never to play it, your notoriety being easier to raise and more difficult to lower is annoying, and the combat is much more frustrating with most of the enemies relying mainly on shooting, which is for some reason tough to interrupt.  You wouldn't think it would be, but these soldiers are somehow easily able to dodge or block your attacks while continuing to aim their gun at you.

Still, I did like how it wrapped up the stories of Ezio and Altair while tying it into Desmond's, and while it does seem like they're relying heavily on the 2012 apocalypse bullshit as a plot device (way to date your game, Ubisoft), I'm excited to see where it's all going from here.

P.S. One thing that I forgot to mention about AssCreed II is that Mario introducing himself to you with "It's a-me, Mario!" made me painfully cringe.  I might have been okay with a Nintendo game doing something like that, but some random other studio putting that line in some random game is just...ugh.  Truly a terrible markjoke.

Zelda usually always has a companion character that's there to guide you, whether you like it or not, it will just have to be something you'll have to overlook if you want to explore the entire series. And, there's an explanation for why the boat talks. It's not like it's left unexplained or anything.

As far as your concerns about the dialogue, it could just be a lazy localization. The translation as a whole didn't seem too bad to me, though.

Just finished Wolfenstein: The Old Blood. I liked it, but not as much as Wolfenstein: The New Order.

Once you get past the first few islands, the game becomes less restrictive and becomes a lot more open-world, with KoRL barely speaking to you apart from in the cutscenes, then you can decide to go exploring the islands on your own, tracking down rare charts and the myriad minigames and side-quests.

In Zelda games, the first three temples are almost always hand-holding exercises.

Dark Souls is probably one of the best games of the decade.
