I got to the last mission in San Andreas today.

I think I missed something because it was my understanding that there would be a casino heist mission. There was not.

There is in Saint's Row 2, a bank heist in GTA IV, and there's a game called Heist coming out, which I can only assume is based off of the movie Heat.

Because that game would be amazing.

I thought I remembered a casino heist in there. You do it with the blind asian Keanu Reeves guy, or at least for him I think. I think you had to do it before you can buy any property in the Vegas area. :confused:

Finally getting the hang of BlazBlue. Got two perfect matches and a 56 hit combo online today. Feels real good.

My PSN name is Phoenix_Gamma if anyone wants to play. My hours are pretty limited, though.

I just bought and beat SuperHero Mode in Mega Man 9. I was originally against it since I thought it was bullshit that Capcom would charge for a difficulty level. But I noticed I was playing Endless Attack more than the main game for Mega Man 9 and I attributed this to the relative lack of enemies to shoot in Mega Man 9 compared to older games in the series. Reading some good reviews of the mode on the GameFAQs forums I decided to swallow my pride and buy the mode. I'm glad I did.

SuperHero is fantastic. All that I thought was missing from the Normal mode is in SuperHero: More Enemies, More interesting use of the various devices (Warp Cubes, Elevating/Descending Platforms, Nega Man), More Bite. It's definitely the way I'll play the game from now on. If you need a reason to pick up Mega Man 9 again, I highly recommend SuperHero Mode (and if you haven't yet picked up Endless Attack you're missing out on one of the most genius modes ever put in a platform game. Get Both (and Skip Proto, he sucks).

Garou: Mark of the Wolves is quickly becoming a favorite of me and my brother's. The characters are all extremely well designed (i.e. they look like fighters (most of them, anyway) and are fun to play), the system works very well (sort-of like SF but with 4 buttons rather than 6), and the entire presentation is gorgeous. It almost feels like blasphemy to say that it might actually be better than SFIII (which currently holds my position for best fighter, but maybe not for much longer).
Great game.

MvC2 is still the best fighter though :(

FistfulOAwesome Jul 4th, 2009 04:48 AM

It's far too unbalanced for me. I think when you have that many characters, balance is hard to maintain. Plus it's focus on craziness over pure fighting. It's kinda like the Fighter version of playing Grand Theft Auto with the cheats: Fun for about twenty minutes.

Phoenix Gamma Jul 4th, 2009 07:21 AM

there are 50 characters. You have no need to pick just one.

FistfulOAwesome Jul 4th, 2009 12:29 PM

I guess some people get bored playing a single character for a 3-minute match (that's about average length for most matches). Personally, I get bored mashing buttons for Supers. I'm much more interested in outsmarting my opponents with my various moves (Normal doesn't mean worse. You'd be surprised how well Crouching Hard Punch works as an Anti-Air for Ryu) than seeing the carnage unfold.

Maybe the focus on Flash is one of the reasons I didn't like SFIV but many others did. They like seeing 10 second cutscene Supers of "them" kicking ass, similar to the love of MVC2 for it's focus on Supers. For me, that's not enough. I need a good, balanced game behind it (what do I care if I beat my brother if the only reason he lost is that he didn't mash fast enough?). I like to know I beat the other guy because I'm better than him, not because the fight just ended up that way (i.e. I was a faster masher).

Phoenix Gamma Jul 4th, 2009 02:55 PM

Street Fighter IV is one of the more balanced fighting games out there. If you're mashing buttons, you're doing it wrong. But hey, if beating your little brother by hammering buttons is boring, I can't blame you ;)

I won't defend MvC2 as balanced, but only "That Guy" gives a fuck. The rest of the world is having fun beating each other up and don't have time to memorize which of the 50+ characters are the best.

FistfulOAwesome Jul 4th, 2009 06:08 PM

I don't like SFIV for different reasons (Flash + SFII.5) but I do understand that it's balanced. It's what it's balanced around that annoys me. The top-tier characters are mostly guys who have easy combo into Ultra. If getting good at that game means I have to endure those 10 second cutscenes, leave me out (I actually sold it and went back to HD Remix, Alpha II, TS, and now MOTW).

As for MVC2, I have fun with that game. I just don't know how anyone could call it the "best" 2D Fighter, for all the reasons I stated. I get tired with the hammering buttons and eventually desire some actual serious play. Playing pick-up basketball is fun, but it only makes me desire a serious game all the more. It's more fun for me to have my skills tested.

Play DoA. It's all about reading your opponents. If you try to rush in mashing buttons or even doing actual combos any opponent worth their salt will quickly counter you and you will die really fast.

FistfulOAwesome Jul 4th, 2009 08:03 PM

@Dimnos: Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't like "3D" fighters. They always feel slow and clunky to me.

Tadao Jul 4th, 2009 08:08 PM

:(

Dimnos Jul 4th, 2009 09:45 PM

It's not as 3d as you might think. The 3d only comes into play when you kick someone and they get knocked around to one side or the other. Then the camera will spin around to line you two back up. It really does play more like a 2d fighter game. If reading your opponent and properly reacting to their actions is what you are looking for DoA really is worth checkng out. Do you have an xbox? You can DL a demo for free and check it out.

Yeah, I liked DoA. It was so satisfying to pull off the counter attacks.

It really is. Especially when they are in the middle of a combo and you counter it and start into your own. :p

Fathom Zero Jul 5th, 2009 07:16 PM

Right now I'm playing Sony Vegas Pro 9.

Dimnos Jul 6th, 2009 03:26 PM

Anyone know a good RPG game for the 360? I havnt played a good RPG in a long time and am kind of itching for one. Other than Mass Effect and Fallout 3 that is.

Fathom Zero Jul 6th, 2009 03:35 PM

Two Worlds.

Aheh heh heh.

Blueeee Drraaggooonnnn

timrpgland Jul 6th, 2009 09:21 PM

Actually, it's the best fighter out there for all the reasons you mentioned. :(

There are a lot of tech style 2D fighters out there. MvC2 is just pure adrenaline and fun. It does still maintain a gap between skilled players and button mashers. Don't be static and the matches can be very balanced with the character volume.
