Metroid Prime!

I forgot how great all the lore is, especially in the second one.

Waiting for the Wii rerelease. I liked the Gamecube games at the time (well, not really. Whatever) but afterplaying Prime 3, Prime 1 was really hard to play.

Wii Sports Resort was leaked yesterday. I'm glad there's a little more substance to the whole package, even though a couple of the games are a little shallow (and dumb. When did anyone ever use their hands to pedal a bike?) I like flying around the most :D

I had a hard time getting back into the gamecube controls, too, but when I did, they're way, way, way, way, way better than the waggle homo shit Corruption pulls.

I still can't get past the SCRUNCH-O-VISION visor borders at the edges of the screen, though.

Wot? You mean aiming without standing in place and holding R? The Gamecube controls just make Samus' tank-like movement that much more obvious. The only real waggle Corruption uses is the grapple beam (which I like, actually) and the switches. The rest is just pointing and shooting.

It'll make the bullshit fights against the Chozo Ghosts way less frustrating. And to a lesser extent, Space Pirate fights, though that only frustrated me because the Space Pirtate Theme is so goddamn awful that I wanted the fights to be done with.

It could also be that Prime 1 and 2 are just better games than Corruption. :/

Also, I got Diablo 2.

Holy shit, what a badass opening cinematic.

ORIGINAL WAS BETTER

Me and my stepbrother recently got an NES emulator and we were trying to beat the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (you know, the one where you try to kick Shredder's arse with all of your four turtles), but after creating many saving points and losing all of our continues before the dreaded "Technodrome", we concluded that the game was next to impossible to beat without the Game Genie, although we tried our damnedest.

emulators are lame for the save state reason.

They only have the save state to appeal to newer gamers, unfortunately.
To be honest, I didn't even know that there were emulators for the older systems until I started visiting I-Mockery, which was only a couple months ago. I just stuck to hooking up a NES that I've had since I was 5 and playing the few games that I still had for it, including the aforementioned TMNT as well as Castlevania II: Simon's Quest and Hogan's Alley. Yup, my Light Gun still works after all of these years, having shot the hell out of those thugs and cans and the occasional civilian who'd look like a thug to me.

I've been playing MadWorld a bit. Pretty fun, but I wish the bosses had a bit more character to them instead of being hopeless chumps I slaughter.

I bought M.U.S.H.A. on Virtual Console since I don't feel like shelling out the cash for a hard copy (yet) and holy crap is it amazing.

Holy Invasion of Privacy Badman, What Did I Do To Deserve This? is really interesting. There's a lot more strategy than I initially realized.

I'm about to start playing WipEout HD Fury. I hear it's absolutely radtacular.

Yeah, I'm playing a lot of games all over the place.

MarioRPG Jul 26th, 2009 12:02 PM

I've been meaning to pick up M.U.S.H.A but I always regret paying for that type of games.

i beat it w/o an emulator, you just suck at video games

bigtimecow Jul 26th, 2009 02:36 PM

monkey island is beat, i'm losing interest in the dig, BUT i just got braid and its awessoooooooome

in the infamous world, i'm almost at the 3rd island, have 260/350 blast shards, and holy fucking fucking crap is this game hard (like you didn't already know that)

Fathom Zero Jul 26th, 2009 03:54 PM

I beat it on hard so I traded it in, and a couple other games. I bought Battlefield 1943 (quite fun) and am saving my other $20 PSN to get MvC2 in ~2 weeks.

Depends on how you use it.

I'm not sitting down and playing Mario or Sonic in one sitting. Also, the first two Zeldas can't save properly because you need to hold reset when you power down.

I'm getting ready to buy a PS3 because I am tired of my Xbox 360 fucking up whenever I try and play a new game. :tear

Phoenix Gamma Jul 26th, 2009 04:50 PM

You must be breathing on it too much. Stop breathing. It might overheat and die.

Almost at the end of Twilight Princess. On the last dungeon right now. I remember being bummed about getting "just another Clawshot". Now I realize how the auto-lock on lets Link zip from one point to another almost instantly. That, and hanging onto the sides of the giant spinning fans is just awesome.

Fuck the Oocco things, though. I hate them so much >:

Sam Jul 26th, 2009 04:58 PM

JUST GET READY FOR ME TO KICK YOUR ASS AT BLAZBLUE OKAY >:

Guitar Woman Jul 26th, 2009 06:44 PM

Get ready to be disappointed with the entire last hour of the game, PS

What is that video because it's not important enough for me to sign up for youtube just to see it. :\
