  1. The Legend of Zelda turns 25

    But then they'd have to actually put one together first.
  2. N-Europe Driving School

    I prefer driving alone, but then, the only people I've ever driven around are family members (other than driving instructors, obviously), and they're all terrible backseat drivers. Do this, do that, why did you do that, you're doing that wrong, I always do this... They make me hate driving. My brother once stalled a car twenty-five times in a row, so you shouldn't feel too bad.
  3. bad stuff thread.

    That's a really poor choice of words.
  4. Band of Brothers/The Pacific

    I watched Band of Brothers several years ago, and I seriously couldn't tell any of the main characters apart. Like, someone would die and then they'd suddenly be a live again but maybe that was someone else but then I thought he was that guy and aaaaah- I wish they would have gone the anime route and dress all of the main characters differently. I've always felt bad for not liking Band of Brothers since it's so critically acclaimed, so I might give it a second chance at some point in the future. Though the war setting and previous experiences with the series kind of put me off, so it'd have to be if I had someone else to watch it with. For obvious reasons, I never watched The Pacific.
  5. DS/DSi General Discussion

    Have you played the Miles Edgeworth game? Because I enjoyed that more than Apollo Justice. Ghost Trick is also excellent, and was created by the man behind Phoenix Wright. If you want something darker and more serious, 999 is great, though it doesn't look like it's going to get a PAL release. I know you said you didn't like Dual Strike, but have you played Dark Conflict? I thought it was a lot more fair than Dual Strike (no more dual strikes, for one thing!) and having so many new units and characters made the game feel fresh. Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story? Not as serious as Final Fantasy or Chrono Trigger, but a great game nonetheless. Probably my favorite in the series (don't bother with Partners in Time). You should play LoZ the training one, too. It's pretty similar to Phantom Hourglass, but does away with 'that one dungeon'. Other than that, I agree that Henry Hatsworth is a great game (though a bit difficult), and while I haven't played it (I'm stuck with a DS Lite), I'm sure Shantae: Risky's Revenge is excellent based on how great the first game was. Or if you like music games, Elite Beat Agents is a lot of fun, as are its Japanese counterparts.
  6. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    36 is not Flower, no. This game is from last generation.
  7. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    Oh. No. Sorry. Oh, man. 26 is such an awesome game. Anyone who recognizes gets a big kiss. *Expects a dozen guesses within the next couple of minutes*
  8. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    Yes! Haha, you finally found Mass Effect 2. Dead Space is not featured.
  9. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    Aww, don't feel bad. *Pats on head* I'm afraid Uncharted is not correct, though this game was released on the PS3... eventually.
  10. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    Yes! Finally someone recognized one of the greatest games of all time.
  11. Super (Movie)

    On the one hand... Kick-Ass. On the other hand... Dwight and Juno.
  12. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    I am so voting for you for Most Negative Member 2011.
  13. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    It certainly is worth a guess, since you're correct! Good on you for stealing this point from right under the noses of all the people guessing Metroid games. All of the other guesses are incorrect, I'm afraid. Especially Shadowman. Edit: If it helps, it's a somewhat obscure Japanese game...
  14. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    Haha, and I thought I was being sneaky. Can't fool you!
  15. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    I'm betting it's full of obscure Japanese games that no one's ever heard of.
  16. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    No, it is not a WarioWare game.
  17. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    No and no. Sorry. ___________________________ Since Nando always complains about my rounds, as he "only play good games", I have put together a round just for him. All of these games are critically acclaimed (and I can personally attest to their quality), so do me proud, N-Europe. 025 Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty - Cube +1 026 Grim Fandango - jayseven +1 027 Day of the Tentacle - Jonnas +1 028 Deus Ex - Sméagol +1 029 Persona 4 - Olly +1 030 Mass Effect 2 - Jonnas +1 031 World of Goo - MadDog +1 032 System Shock 2 - jayseven +1 033 Tomb Raider - Jonnas +1 034 Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood - Dog-amoto +1 035 Planescape: Torment - Olly +1 036 Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic - Cube +1
  18. You have the worst memory, Flameboy:
  19. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    No, Jonnas has already made that guess. 32 is significantly older than Mass Effect 2.
  20. Wind Waker

    This was my first 3D Zelda game and the main reason I got a GameCube. My brother and I had to get by with only an NES until Christmas 1996, when we finally got our first computer, and I was solely a PC gamer after that. When we eventually got an internet connection in summer 2001 (probably the last people in the country to get one...) I rekindled my love for Nintendo games after discovering SNES emulators. This gave me the idea to see what Nintendo was up to at the time, and I came across the launch trailer for The Wind Waker, among other things. And that's why I wished for a GameCube for Christmas 2002 (and then we got an Xbox, but that's a different story...). To date, this is the only game where I've actually counted down the days until it was released. So yeah, awesome game.
  21. How I Met Your Mother

    Apparently the show has been renewed for two more seasons. I was really hoping that next season would be the show's last, but this is CBS, so that was probably stupid of me.
  22. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    Aww. Yep. It's the creature you fight at the beginning of the final level.
  23. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    Well, then you can take all of these screenshots as my personal recommendations. Perhaps... but not for the screenshots you're guessing.
  24. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    It's Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, but close enough. So, what - you only play bad games? Nothing's harder than the music round, anyway. You're right, of course. All of the other guesses are wrong. Sorry.
  25. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    You'd think so, but no. All of these guesses are incorrect. Keep them coming, though.
