Fathom that sounded genuine enough to sway me, thanks.

Well, the PS3 version has a bug that occasionally wipes your save file. That's one reason to save your money.


Oh, and I've heard that the game is a mediocre pastiche of other successful games.

Esuohlim Oct 16th, 2010 03:30 PM

Motherfucker, I've been picking up missile expansions in Metroid Prime for the last three hours and apparently I'm missing one >:

You heard that from a liar.

So...I was lying in bed yesterday night, checking my email and looking through the latest IGN-Reviews when I saw Cladun there. I opened up the Youtube app and watched the trailer.



Then I got out of bed, grabbed my trusty credit card bought one of those stupid PSN Card and bought it right away. Why am I such a sucker for this kind of games...but anyway, it´s really charming in a very odd way, the story is super stupid, the dialogue is total crap (on purpose) and it´s good, fun dungeon-crawling in realtime. Might be a bit pricey with 20$ but hey, nothing like an impulse-purchase at 2 in the morning, right?

First time I completed it I missed scanning your ship...

Esuohlim Oct 17th, 2010 02:06 AM

I hate having to worry about one-time scans. In one of the Phendrana Drifts rooms there's about four Ice Shriekbats that go kamikaze on you and if you don't scan one before they all die you'll never get another chance. >:

Also I went through everywhere again and still couldn't find the elusive missile expansion. Either I accidentally didn't save after picking one up that I thought I already had, or I got glitched.

lol Ox, that game looks interesting. It reminds me of some of the SNES RPGs.

I've been playing the new Kirby and it's great!

Is is indeed pretty interesting. You got your randomly generated dungeon if you want (Rangueon), you can level your Chars as mains or subs, mess around with the circle system (which allows for quite a bit of customization), you get do draw your heroes faces if you want...there´s even coop. I think the Magic Circle is the best thing about it.

Your Main is cheered on by the Subs on the circle which use their mana to activate artifacts that boost the Main in all kinds of ways, depending on how you set up the circle you´ve chosen. You can make the Mains strong, resilient or you could focus on improving their skills or making those skills cheaper to use...an while your Subs level, they become better Mains and vice versa...pretty cool.

Nippon Ichi may have done it again! A new PSP game is also good news. Speaking of which, I'm playing Dungeons and Dragons Tactics on PSP. It ain't bad.

DougClayton4231 Oct 17th, 2010 01:58 PM

That sounds pretty sweet. If I had a PSP, I'd get it :P

Phoenix Gamma Oct 18th, 2010 03:33 AM

100%ed Kirby's Epic Yarn and it gave me 8 cavities because it's so fucking adorable. The last world was a bunch of old Kirby throwbacks too. IN YARN.

Question is, why don´t you have one? I mean yeah, there´s not as many great games for it as for the DS and you probably don´t see PS1-Games on that thing as a valid reason but still...nice thing. Still got the very first model, imported it from Hong Kong back in the day...good times. :)

I think it´s safe to say that for me, after the PS2, the portable Consoles provided the most consistent and intense fun in gaming in the last couple years...

Fathom Zero Oct 18th, 2010 05:17 AM

I got that wrangling eight survivors at once achievement. You just get better and better with every playthrough, it's crazy. That, and I have all the gambling books, so when I play the Megaman slots at the Yucatan, I get $5000 per pull and $1500 and up on every other slot I come across. That, and playing the strip poker is cake. Imma get that goddamn Humvee so I can try for those Genocide achievements in style. Also, at one of the restaurants in a casino, (can't remember which), there's a Driving magazine, which triples the durability of four-wheeled vehicles. AWESOME.

DougClayton4231 Oct 18th, 2010 08:30 AM

I've never owned a handheld console. I have no idea why, but it's always been that way. Maybe I'll buy a 3DS when those get affordable.

OxBlood Oct 18th, 2010 09:03 AM

Wow, you´re missing out on some great games there Doug. I fucking love my Handhelds :)

The humvee looks like the most practicle vehicle to buy because of the wide open space. The haggling magazines help out too by making the pawn shop prices drop.

My last portable was GBA but I might need to get a 3DS too when Megaman Legends III comes out for it. Oh how long I've waited for thee.

Fathom Zero Oct 18th, 2010 11:12 AM

:O I don't know where those are. But I also need that $6,000,000 acheivo, too, so I'm not worried.

I'm missing 5 six or so survivors in my notebook, and I know where all of them are. I'm totally nabbing them on this playthrough. THIS GAME'S GONNA GET MASTERED, BITCHES. Also, TESLA BALL. USE IT.

10,000 Volt Ghost Oct 18th, 2010 12:14 PM

I made it once but I took it all the way back to the first maintenance room in that area. Maybe it I find a closer room.

The discount magazine is in the casino(atlantica maybe?) Inside there is a BBQ restaurant with two floors with a suspended bi-plane. Go up to the 2nd floor and platform jump from chandelier to chandalier and you'll find the magazine on a ledge. Also Zombrex and a purrple rabbit.

I love handheld games and all, but compared to console games there's a somewhat empty feel about them. I've never really felt totally immersed like I do with most console games, and I don't think the medium has anything to do with it since I play most games on my computer.

Except maybe Pokemon Silver, which is the last game of its kind I played. That one feels fully fleshed-out. Games like Metroid Fusion and New Super Mario Brothers seem very cold compared to Super Metroid and Super Mario World. :\

i love handhelds(my psp) because you can put on a movie, or another video game in your living room to entertain everyone else but still have your own shit going on.

ive been playing twisted metal head-on a lot. it is mind numbing

ZJS looks better than the regular version but still a sham of a game.

Dead Rising 2. Going to make a motorcycle with a sidecar and be father of the year. Demoting SAM to weekend daddy once again.
