I keep hearing that line... and I have no idea exactly where it's from.  I know via reading this thread that it comes from a certain game, but I don't know the context.  Can someone enlighten me as to the specifics so that I can finally laugh at the in joke as well?  Just a one sentence summary or something.  :-)

It's a Nord's reaction to those exotic coloured folk visiting their land. They have CURVED swords O.O

Although, I don't think you can ever get one of those curves swords. Which makes me sadface.

Skyrim. Guards say "I used to be an adventurer too, until I took an arrow to my knee" over and over.

It's the new "The Cake is a Lie", which means it'll be old in about two months ago.

It's been out since November 11, and Memes already have a pretty short life span mostly. This one was a banana left out on the counter, where as things like Rage Face are bottled water and probably won't ever go bad.

You'd be surprised how fast a bunch of geeks over-use a joke.

I'm almost done Metroid: Fusion off the GBA Ambassador games. I must say, I've been having a blast with it, despite the fact that I hated the game in high school. I guess it's good to go back to something with a fresh pair of eyes and understanding. It feels way shorter than I had remembered, though. I'm on the final mission, which means I'm going to go through the map and power bomb all the rooms to see if I can find any last-minute secrets.

Some things can get old so fast that they break the light barrier and go back in time.

Acctually you can get them if you kill a Redguard band whos looking for a woman in Whiterun. I think you get the quest after killing the first dragon. Also you have to be insanely good or lucky because you have to fight nearly a dozen at the same time. Alternatively you can agree to help them, then when the leader is alone kill him while using their quarry as bait. Im pretty sure he drops a sword

Eh, as a two-hand specialist Orc in full Orc Plate armor, with the Daedric warhammer, Sweep Power Attack, and Beserker Rage?  They and their silly curved swords fall like wheat before a thresher.  Wheat that screams and bleeds, but still.

And yes, I'm playing Skyrim.  If only because I cannot afford to but Star Wars at the moment.  I'd like to.  I love CoH, but I need a break for another MMO.  A good one.

I went in as a heavy armor Khajiit with daedric gauntlets enchanted with Fortify Unarmed and killed those guys unarmed. Even got a few context kills. But then again, that particular character fights even dragons unarmed. People have actually started running away from melee range, fearing the tiger's claws.

That Unarmed kill animation is just fucking brutal. It's not like any move I've seen before, it's like if Terminator operated on street fighting rules. Quick upward grab to the throat, lifts them off their feet, throws headfirst sideways into the pavement. The entire body must come down on the neck in the most awkward way possible, it makes me cringe every time.

Depends on how often you listened to the song of All Your Base. I still find it really catchy, but you can be damn sure it's not on any playlist of mind.

Damn, I was interested in Skyrim until I saw it's s FPS.  I hate FPS games.  :P

I'm not sure why, though... I used to love Doom, Wolfenstein and erm, that old Star Wars FPS.  It's just not my bag anymore... but unfortunately they really don't make games that are my bag anymore.  I like turn based RPGs if that tells you anything.  :-(

There are settings where you can play skyrim in a 3rd person way. Although i find it far less optimal then the FPS style

Considering how old the game that one comes from is - I'm vaguely surprised that one's still around and hasn't fossilized.

I officially hate New Vegas x.x

I always disliked a lot about it, but it was fun. Now that I'm trying to see all the games endings and experience all the factions, it's shown me just how unbelievably riddled with traps it is. It can't possibly be this consistency broken, can it?

Okay, backstory here. I tried to make a neutral character that would use talking, science, medicine, all of the technical stuff you'd need in some of the bigger decisions, and would level up as much as I could without offending or siding with anyone. I would save it there and branch off from that point for the 5 main paths, Legion, NCR, House, Yes Man and Independent New Vegas.

Then, I find out, for some reason, the NCR is mad at me. I don't know why. I've finished NCR before, so I was pissed, but decided to go with House instead. But House plans involve NCR, so that's two games ruined. I decided to try Yes Man, but the White Glove Society quest is one of the, maybe THE most badly designed quests I've played in a game, ever. It was too open, to the point of being confusing, and while I resolved it, I have no idea how it happened. It was like two or three of the quests endings mashed together into one big jumble of events that contradicted each other.

I got so fed up, that instead of starting over, I got the game on PC, and went on to cheat the ass out of it. I gave myself 100 in everything, infinite ammo, caps, stimpaks... I didn't care. I was guna do it this time. I'd played fair enough already, I really didn't mind cheating, which I usually hate. Plus it came with all DLC, so I was actually excited to try those.

Then I boot up Old World Blues x.x Oh my God that was terrible. Everyone says it's the best DLC, and really, it was funny. Hilarious even. But the amusing dialogue, it's only strength to me, was also the biggest problem. There was too much of it. I spent an hour just listening to people in the room, and I walked out having learned almost nothing, and knowing I should have. I didn't fully understand what I had to do, why I was doing it, and things I used to be sure of, I was getting confused about because of brain numbingly long these talks were.

And if I hadn't been cheating, I'd have been even more fucked, the enemies are pretty tough and the ammo you'd need most is the least common. Couple this with a new set of armour that automatically uses up all your Stimpaks, also very rare, and couple this with the game world being a bunch of dungeons you need to fight over the surface to get to, and you have a resources nightmare. This isn't 'tough' or 'survival', this is annoying. This is you hiding behind a rock, because all your gear is smashed up, your half dead and running out of bullets.

So FINALLY I force my way through this confusing mess (You can't leave until you finish. FUN!) and I'm given a choice. Leave without my brain, or talk it into coming back. Don't ask, it's Fallout, it likes to be kooky and depressing at the same time, the gluts Dx so I convince my brain to crawl back into my skull, and it advises me to go to the surgery area, since it can't be done here. Okay, I say, you say here, I'll go shoot all the robots!

Now, keep in mind, the brain TOLD me to go, and TOLD me it could not follow just yet. The option to leave it there did not, in any way, indicate anything other then what I had been told. Leave, kickass, have reunion with grey matter, get out of this horrid DLC. Simple.

Little did I know, I just elected to lock up the brains tank and leave it there forever, and no amount of clicking would persuade it to open so I could ask it if it would please consider. With my last save before that point being about 5 hours back, I was pretty much committed to this. But I felt cheated, tricked, fooled, and even though I used the console to buff all my skills, I needed a 75 Speech to get this ending. I chose this ending, and I fucking want it.

Fuck this game -.- Fuck all Obsideon games until they learn to slow the hell down and actually finish them. We don't need MOAR CRAFTING, we need a stable product. Fuckheads...

It's just going to be a grind to get him.

I used to play CoH/V.

50 MA/Inv Scrapper and a 50 DB/Nin Stalker.

Given that, it's pretty obvious I've spent way too much time in the game.

You used to think that was a funny joke, then you took A BULLET IN THE FACE.

Which, incidentally, is almost the name of the game I'm playing right now, aside from The Old Republic. Namely, Bodycount. It's a terrible little FPS that doesn't give me what I want. Which I knew, of course. I played the demo, I read the reviews. So I got it used, with every intention of just playing through it and then taking it back. Because I needed an FPS fix! I haven't played a good one in ages. Where did they all go? Where did games go?

Into that demonic void called January and February. The gaming industry is like the movie industry nothing hits after the new year. We'll get some things in March, but then it usually peters out around the summer months. Then fall comes and finally, finally it happens...

The game you wanted all year gets pushed back until next year. :\
