Didn't Gothic 2 include actual sex scenes, or am I thinking of some other game? I could swear they reviewed it on X-play back in the day...

Yep. Sonya, I think, down by the harbor. Good times ...

And yet San Andreas get's all the flak...

Wasn't that because San Andreas had 'hidden' it with that 'hot coffee' hack?  I haven't looked at the back (or even the front) of Gothic 2, so I don't know what it admits to in the warnings.

Little tidbit of knowledge here, it's harder to remove something from a game then it is to bury it. They were adding the sex minigame, decided not to use it, and instead of deleting it, which can cause lots of issues, they just left the coding there but removed it from the game.

It took a hack and a modded console (If you had the Xbox version) to get to it.

Oh yes.  Especially when a program gets as complex as a video game.  Frankly, I thought the 'hot coffee' scandal was blown out of proportion because you had to do something that the game wasn't supposed to allow on a console that had been tampered with in order to get to the 'bad stuff'.

Hey, new to the conversation, but I'm mainly playing Fable 3 and Mafia 2 right now.  :)

I love the Laser RCW and duh it stands for Really Cool Weapon. I even have a recycler for mine so every for shots definitely yields a case I think. Get me some other stuff and I can press up some EC packs in no time.

I don't think Gothic 2 had an actual sex scene. You might be thinking of The Witcher?

Yikes. Things I'm playing:
PS3 - Spider-Man:Shattered Dimensions
PSP - Ys Seven
DS - Suikoden Tierkreis (why, Konami? Why? ;_;)
PC - Starcraft 2. <_<
PS2 - SMT: Devil Summoner 2 - Whateverhisnameis vs. King Abbadon.

Maybe Grand Theft Auto San Andreas

It might be that.

I know it was with a prostitute.

And no, it wasn't San Andreas..it was a Swords and Sorcery kind of game on the PC. I don't think it was the Witcher, though, because there you only collect playing cards with nude women on them.

well while I love the decked out laser rifle I got a plasma rifle last night (had the only mod for it forever) and now Im switching weapons. Funny thing is Im like level 12 and I havnt even gotten to new vegas to find the guy in the checkered coat. Much like fallout 3 I just like walking around and exploring the wasteland, although F:NV isnt as friendly with free roaming as F3 was

I can't quite remember if I'm right in this, but in one of the shops in Freeside, I think it is, where you have two different guys, one sells guns and the other sells clothes and armor and such, I believe the guy who sells armor and clothes and other survival stuff also makes passports.  I remember buying one, even though I didn't really need it since I had the money.

2000 caps is easy. I actually have around 17k right now because whenever I go to buy/sell I go to Novac and then play Caravan with the guy till I get all my money back

On just roaming around in New Vegas, anyone else find that the Mojave seems pretty tame compared to the Capital Wasteland? And even more so compared to the wasteland in the older games?

So..I'm cruising around steam, ya know, waiting till tommorow when I can pre-order black ops from it and start it downloading so it's ready to go by tuesday ( cause 24gb on this connection is gonna suck like hell)

And..what's that? Two games are free to play this weekend? You mean they aren't demos, but the full game?

....I think I want to marry Steam now.

Wolfy, Steam has free weekends for various games all the time. I agree with you, though. I too have a Steam fetish.

I fully agree. The way the NV map is built you usually get into these corridors as youre walking through the wasteland and this makes attack usually only come from 1 of two directions. Then there seems to be very little respawning enemies around most civilizations. If you take out a group of Gecko's theyre down for most of the game (if not the whole game). NV just doesnt seem dangerous or realistic when you walk the wastes

And there's not enough robots. And the Ironsights move too much even when your skilled. And companions don't effect your Sneak Skill. And there's no minimap. And you can't kill kids. And the VATS action cam isn't always good.

I'm complaining about a video game =D It's so fashionable!

Some people prefer that realism..:P

Anyway..been playing FFXIV..and I must say, even on low settings..the game is damn beautiful. O-o

I don't appreciate your sarcasm, Sabby! It makes me want to get my stick! My big stick! The wasteland is a lot tamer, and I think that's a very valid criticism. Or, not exactly a criticism, because maybe there are those who appreciate it. But it is pointing out my preference. I could point to all the things that make it seem so, but that would be somewhat useless. Bottom line, it doesn't feel like you're wandering a wasteland with scattered oases of civilization.

Wolfy. Ask yourself this: if your friends want to make you play an FPS on a console, when you could be playing it on a computer. With a mouse. Are they really your friends?
