  1. Super Mario Galaxy

    Everything about this game is great! The graphics, the controls, the atmosphere! I'm loving the gravity-shifting elements (though it was a little confusing at first) - it opens up to whole new strategies and level designs. It's like we have gotten a whole new dimension - take that, Sony! Nintendo beat you to 4D! BUT! Yes, there is a but - there is one thing that annoy me: the camera angles. When making such a great game, it disappoints me that the camera is so ... well, lousy. There's nothing wrong with the camera controls, but the fact that the camera is so often fixed can be really annoying at times. Expecially when running around on a very small planet - when you're upside down or on the side, it's very hard to make Mario run in the direction you want because of the camera angle, and there's no way that you can adjust the camera to get a better view. When moving around in a universe with so much freedom, the camera should be 100 percent free to control - more often than ever you need to get an overview of the level and it's very hard when the camera is so fixed all the time. Phew, rant over.
  2. Red Steel - Some Of My Views

    Completely agree. Red Steel had so much potential, and though we got a great taste of it, it can be much better. If Nintendo and Ubisoft work together, the sequel could be a blast.
  3. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    So, he's N-Europe's answer to the Oracle from Delphi? Fair enough, there HAD to be a reason nobody demanded a source. :p So, to be serious for a second, he has usually got his sources right? EDIT: From the next few posts, I can see that he does.
  4. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    Gee, I did? :p I meant where the POSTER got the information. It doesn't just pop into people's heads when a game goes gold ... or does it?
  5. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    Whence, if I may enquire, have you actually got the information that Brawl has gone gold?
  6. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    Why? You don't think they've revealed all the unlockable characters already, do you? Note that I have no idea whatsoever if Mega Man will be in - I doubt it, to be honest - but I also doubted Sonic, so I may very well be wrong on this one, too. I just don't think that Brawl "going gold" means that Mega Man can't be in.
  7. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    I surely hope so. Everything else would just be stupid and so not Sakurai.
  8. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    How come no one seems to worry about this? Why does it seemingly cost some sort of points to send data online?
  9. Red Steel - Some Of My Views

    Well, I personally love Red Steel. True, the graphics could be better, and the sword fighting isn't really fun in the long run. It gets repetitive and annoying, and I could never get the special combos to work. I swear, the levels I spent the most time on were the ones where you HAD to do the special combos - THRICE for crying out loud! But apart from these things, I loved the game. The controls were amazing, but what I loved the most was the atmosphere and the feel of the game. From the story (which unfortunately got a little blurry at the end) to the cutscenes to the level design, everything just felt so good. My friends and I have played the multiplayer part for I don't know how many hours and we had tremendous fun (though you need at least 2 friends to make it really fun). I'm truly excited about a sequel being made, because it gives the developers a chance to straighten out the less good parts of the first to make the second a fantastic game.
  10. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    I can see your point, but I like the way they combine the different universes, which is for me the best thing about Smash Bros. If it was Pokémon Trainer and Pikachu against Rayquaza, it would just be good ol' Pokémon - which would be good, of course - but not very original.
  11. If my life was a manga........

    Oh, you ... :p
  12. If my life was a manga........

    Of course I am stereotyping. You don't think I really think all mangas are that far out? It was just an innocent joke based on stereotypes, that's all. Of course, sarcasm can be hard to spot in written text, so maybe I should have made it more clear.
  13. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    How trivial today's update may seem to some, I love it. The fact that Sakurai & Co. think about these things really proves that they sincerely care about this game. Plus, since Mario has been running around in Wario's colours since Melee (or maybe even Smash Bros., don't remember), Wario couldn't join without his good ol' original costume, now, could he? The alternate costume idea is something I've missed since the original Smash Bros. If you can do it with some of the other characters, too, this game will kick 10 percent more behind than it already does - which is a lot! Notice that some of Wario's alternate colours for his original costume are identical to Mario's, particularly the red/blue and green/orange. One thing to note, though, is that Wario's cap for the red/blue costume is red (unlike Mario's blue), which makes him nearly identical to the early Mario games and the cartoons in which the shirt and overall colours were swapped for Mario and Luigi. This was also mentioned in Mario's trophy in Melee. The brown costume is the same as Mario's with swapped colours, except it's generally more beige. The very light (almost icy) red/blue costume has Mario's colours as we know them, except the cap colour is swapped again. Sorry for going geek on the colours. I just have something for colours.
  14. If my life was a manga........

    If you cared about it, you wouldn't be reading manga.
  15. If my life was a manga........

    Of course they have! But you gotta admit, their stories are WAY out there sometimes.
  16. Wii, I hardly knew you!

    Sorry to hear, mate. Don't really know what to say. I suck at condoling. Hope it works out for you.
  17. If my life was a manga........

    No doubt the quote of the day! If my life was a manga? Well, I'd probably be this super-intelligent, geekish type who this hot girl would fall in love with, but I'd be completely oblivious about it. Then the mafia would try to kidnap me to use my brain for cracking some super computer, but I'd save the day with my intelligence. And I'd get the girl in the end. Yup, definitely the next bestseller in Japan. ... Seriously, considering their taste in comics, I think this could actually work! Maybe I could turn it into a series ...
  18. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    Suggests that Meta Knight will at least at some point be fighting for the good guys.
  19. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    I thought it was pretty good. It's the game most true to Lylat Wars so far.
  20. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    This is not turning out the way I predicted. :p I just mean that most people focus on Zero Suit Samus's body and not her hair, so it would seem more logical to give Kirby a blue jumpsuit, as it would make the costume more recognizable. We already have 2 blonde girls in Brawl and even though their haircuts are different, it seems a vague trait to recognize them by, let alone making it the only characteristic to recognize them by.
  21. 3rd Parties Finding It Difficult Satisfying Casuals.

    It's funny (and kind of sad) if looked at that way, but in context I think they mean that casual gamers want different types of games compared to hardcore gamers, i.e. other types of games.
  22. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    Nintendo just has something for blonde chicks. We need something other than a ponytail to distinguish them, especially since very few people (you can't deny this!) remember Zero Suit Samus for her hair.
  23. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    Hm, I think the Zero Suit would have made Kirby's Zero Suit Samus costume more recognizable. The ponytail isn't really defining enough and I spent a few seconds figuring out who it was.
  24. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    Yeah, cool idea. I'm just a little sad since they haven't moved on to more originality in colour schemes for teams, like for instance gold and black.
  25. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    Sorry, forgot about those. Exactly what I think.
