I like 'em both and the two of you are douchebags.

Mother 3 is a snooze. It never really took off, and it felt like my hand was being held the whole time.

Mad Melvin May 16th, 2012 05:38 AM

I have no idea what Mother 3 is, so i'm just gonna assume Milhouse is pissed at his mom for holding his hand too much. Yeah, you tell that bitch.

Esuohlim May 16th, 2012 04:22 PM

I was coddled by my three moms :tear

I bought an SNES at a local shop that specializes in old games. Got Zelda, Madden 94, Yoshi's Island, and Pilotwings. Madden and Pilotwings were free.

Sadly, there's some graphical hiccups. Some weird lines showing up on a few sprites. It's playable, but annoying. Cleaning isn't helping, so I had to order a new motherboard :/

I'm going to spew some of mah opinyuns on MGS4, guys.

This game really, really likes following up genuinely good gameplay segments with horrible fucking shitty awful terrible shit. South America gets followed by that fuckawful Gecko escape corridor and that completely retarded Matrix-sequel fight between Vamp and Raiden, who I swear to god buttfucked during this scene. Crying Wolf and most of Shadow Moses get followed by the fight with Vamp, who you can literally one-shot with the rail gun or otherwise take down with a single clip if your aim's alright,
Spoilers!

and the REX escape sequence, which is by far the worst section of gameplay yet. The game started out really good, too, I'm disappointed more and more and it feels like the first two chapters are awesome on accident.

Another thing; was it really necessary to have the B&Bs all writhe around going batshit in their stupid skintight bodysuits before putting up completely ineffectual boss fights in which you basically execute them? That's how these after-fights come across to me, as executions, because short of being completely retarded there is no way to lose them. This is in poor enough taste by itself, but their backstories just make the entire thing a joke because they're stupid and ridiculous. I feel more remorse for killing the faceless PMC and FROG troops than I do for killing any of the crazy chicks in the robot suits. Furthermore, I'm not sure it's good design to have a large 8-legged mech that leaps around on walls hold its rider up by the neck.

Also, why the fuck does Vamp keep his knife sheathed right in front of his dick? Is it even possible to make homosexual symbolism more overt than it is between Vamp and Raiden? I feel like I should stick a Brazzers logo on every screenshot that contains the two of them.

It's probably the only MGS sequel I've genuinely enjoyed, though.

Guitar Woman May 18th, 2012 05:28 PM

Oh, and I've been playing FF7 again.

Going through it as an adult with the benefit of not being a retarded 9-year-old, I can safely say that it's... fucking good. It's really good. Brilliant, even.

What with the whole stigma and hatedom for this game on the internet, as well as all of its really terrible sequels, I completely forgot that I ever loved it. I'm glad I bought it again because it's stolen more of my hours than anything else on the PS3 and reminded me why I even like video games in the first place.

It's also too easy and the chocobo sidequest is a pile of shit, but I'm fine with that.

Mad Melvin May 18th, 2012 05:36 PM

I actually liked FF8 more than 7. Granted, I only played about half of FF7 before I got bored. FF8 is retarded beyond words, but I still like it for some reason.

MarioRPG May 18th, 2012 06:59 PM

Effin GTA: San Andreas homey! Grove St. for life, yo.
Maybe I'll play my Wii again some day.

Guitar Woman May 18th, 2012 07:41 PM

FF8 has really good music and you can break the battle system horribly, so I liked it too. I stopped when I couldn't figure out where to go after you get to fly around in Balamb Garden, but fortunately it has the best Let's Play ever so I just read that instead. http://www.nastyprisms.com/temp/cache/lparchive.org/Final-Fantasy-VIII/Update%201-1/index.html

It's a hell of a lot better than FF9, for sure.

kahljorn May 18th, 2012 11:44 PM

the chocobo sidequest in 7 was awesome. Where yo uget to breed and race your own chocobos for prizes?
prizes?
breeding chocobos!/
what

OxBlood May 23rd, 2012 04:24 AM

Played a lot of Diablo 3 of course, got my copy of Ghost Recon Future Soldier yesterday and Dragon´s Dogma will arrive today soooo...a lot to do and almost no time for it...ah well.


Ghost Recon for me in a nutshell: Good, but Vegas 2 was better as it is still my benchmark for satisfying and customizable co-op shooting.

Mad Melvin May 23rd, 2012 08:55 AM

I'm thinking of getting Max Payne 3. Has anyone tried it yet?

It was awesome. Look who is in it.



Gix May 23rd, 2012 02:14 PM

Triple Triad-the ff8 card game...i spent more time playing that then the game itself
loved ff7
playing D3 and Valkyria Chronicles

OxBlood May 24th, 2012 06:31 AM

Soooo...Dragons Dogma. Pretty Awesome. I play as a Mage (of course) and this is one of those games where Magic feels really powerful and impactful, even with my puny lightningbolts and fireballs, I canīt wait to see the more powerful versions...Iīm just a sucker for lightning, donīt know why.

Movement is also very satisfying since you can climb most things.

What really suprised me is this: This is a Wester-style RPG done by Capcom and they got it right...itīs just...just listen, this is the main theme.


darkvare May 24th, 2012 03:43 PM

i played the demo my favorite part was grabbing my pawns and throwing them at the chimera

Dr. Boogie May 24th, 2012 09:38 PM

I've heard there's no fast-travel system, so you wind up running back and forth across mostly empty cities and countrysides. Is that the case?

Also, I heard the endless chattering of the NPCs gets really annoying, which it definitely did in the demo.

OxBlood May 25th, 2012 02:46 AM

There are teleport-stones but they only transport you back to the capitol and one other marked location. But they are one-time items and one costs around 10.000 Gold as far as I can tell.

The traveling is part of the gameplay, using daylight to get through the more dangerouse areas, finding shelter for the night.

The constant chattering can get annoying but you can basically tell your main pawn hey dude, sit down, we need to talk, and he'll ask you how you want him to behave, including the frequency and tone in which he comments on things and how high his urge to pick up items is and so on.

Fathom Zero May 26th, 2012 11:19 PM

Playing a lot of DOTA 2. If I had a gun, I would've shot my computer by now.

Guitar Woman May 27th, 2012 08:29 AM

Resistance 3. Game developer protip: if you're going to make a shooter without regenerating health, great! You just have to remember to actually put medkits in the game.

Other than that it's pretty fun.

Dr. Boogie May 27th, 2012 01:10 PM

Playing Rage. The character models and animations are great, but everything else looks like crap. And it's 20gb to install, so I can't figure out what's taking up all that extra space. Plus, I can't help but notice how everything the game does was done better in Borderlands.

OxBlood May 31st, 2012 10:41 AM

60hrs into Dragons Dogma. While far from perfect with the clunky menu-system and occasional technical problems (pop-ins, framerate-drops, etc.), this is still the best RPG I´ve played in the last few years.

The combat is fluid, the character-progression is immensly satisfying, the pawn-system is good, the story is inspired if poorly presented, the world is beautiful, the whole game immerses the player in a very world that is neither too dark, nor too japanese, it strikes a very good balance between western culture and japanese game systems.

You will find almost no humorous dialogue here, no silly out-of-place-people and the move to make the gameworld a simple Duchy instead of a Kingdom is simple but very effective, it makes the scale of the world and land feel more accurate (because let´s face it, Cyrodiil in Oblivion is no Province with no fricking Emperor, it´s a small valley with a few houses).

All of the classes have their own unique feel to it, the Magic Archer plays kind of like a Strider but not quite, same with the Mystic Knight and the Fighter, they all share certain moves and elements but they each different enough to warrant many class-changes or playthroughs with NG+

There´s a shitload of quests (you get the 100 DLC-Quest-Bullshit Capcom pulled for free, in Germany at least), there´s tons of places to wander to because there´s no real fast-travel system in place, at least not one the player can use all the time and the game has the most beautiful.

It combines the impactful combat of Amalur with the world and feel of Dark Souls without being as unforgiving, it throws big enemies at you at every corner, all of which require you to adapt your strategy (though a Tornado is always a viable answer to these problems).

And what´s important: Accomplishing something here FEELS like you actually accomplished something. Every piece of loot is something you worked for, every Class-up brings with it the want to get back to the city to get new and better skills but hey, you´re somewhere out in the mountains, fighting Harpies and on your way back you might encounter a Golem or you might not make it before nightfall and if you´re stuck in the woods by then, you can´t see a thing which means you also won´t see the Chimera behind the tree over there and HEY, Undead Warriors and Mages join the party...

You get my drift, I suppose. When you finally get back to the Castle, you feel like you really experienced something on your way home and you earned all those new skills and items you then improve at the Smithy.


All in all, this is my personal game of the year.
