  1. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    Didn't you get like four points or something last month? So... there's that.
  2. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    Now I know how Nando feels every other round. Man, I should lay off Nando. 10 has to be Pilotwings.
  3. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    Finally something to go on! 4 is Kirby's Dream Land 3.
  4. Mass Effect 2

    Skipping the first Mass Effect ruins the most emotional part in Mass Effect 2 - the part where you find the destroyed Mako. Goodnight, sweet prince.
  5. Mass Effect 2

    Scanning planets sucked, but at least on subsequent plays, you start with bonus resources. I was fortunate enough to play the game after my brother had already finished it, so I didn't have to do too much planet scanning. I can't believe they traded the Mako for this. I'm not sure if your gender and karma carry over if you replay the game with the same character (at the very least, I don't think karma does), but it's not recommended, anyway. Enemies scale to your level, but you're not going to have any good weapons/equipment, making the game much harder at the beginning. Unless you're going for the achievement/trophy for reaching level 30, you may as well just start over with a new character.
  6. PlayStation 3 Console Discussion

    There's a PC version of Metal Gear Solid 2, in case you don't want to skip it.
  7. Games without combat/fighting/killing/shooting

    I meant Tales of Monkey Island, since you said you'd played Sam & Max. Though in retrospect, I guess you were probably talking about the original game. The Telltale Sam & Max games are pretty good, too (they get better as they go along).
  8. Games without combat/fighting/killing/shooting

    Oh, God, no. Let's not soil the first game with a sequel. I vote for 999. It's awesome. Much more interesting that what I've played of Hotel Dusk. Plus you're clearly interested in playing it. Or, if by some miracle you haven't played them, the Telltale Monkey Island episodes were really good.
  9. L.A. Noire

    That cover just makes me want to go watch Mad Men.
  10. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

    I'm out. Modern Warfare 2 was horrible and I have no interest in multiplayer. Edit: Man, this was an unproductive post. I'm so over countdowns and teaser trailers and announcements of announcements of games that will sell millions of copies anyway, though. And the Kotakus and IGNs of the world just keep lapping it up.
  11. Do you worry about Nintendo's future?

    Eh, Nintendo's doing fine. If they still haven't gone out of business after all of the bad decisions they've made through the years, we're never getting rid of them. That's a lie. It only cures ice-cream headaches. You should watch Community, by the way. It's quickly become my favorite NBC comedy.
  12. Games without combat/fighting/killing/shooting

    I found Soul Bubbles kind of dull and yeah, it's level based, without much in the way of overlying narrative. LostWinds 2 is a safer bet. 999 is awesome if you're looking for a game with a great story. One of my favorite DS games. The only downside is that you'll have to replay puzzles several times to get the different endings. Edit: Also, it's really hard to recommend games to someone who's already played everything.
  13. Free Stuff!

    Man, I need to start hanging around Ashley so I can get in on all of that free stuff he keeps getting. Yeah, because you were likely to win that award before this post.
  14. Games without combat/fighting/killing/shooting

    Limbo comes to mind as a game that's somewhat similar in tone to A Shadow's Tale, and it doesn't have a lot of enemies (it does have plenty of traps, though). The first two Oddworld games have similar gameplay, but also have a lot of enemies, so they're probably not quite what you're looking for. Heavy Rain has very little combat and what little there is plays out as quicktime events. Otherwise, you've got any stealth game worth its salt. Series like Thief, Splinter Cell and Hitman can be played without killing very many enemies. I especially like Thief 2, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory and Hitman: Blood Money. Though it sounds like you're probably looking for more relaxing games.
  15. This has probably been linked to before, but this website is a goldmine for anyone likes Donald Duck comics (especially if you're a fan of Carl Barks and/or Don Rosa).
  16. bad stuff thread.

    Don't tell me you're in love with him too, ReZ.
  17. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    I vote for Dog-amoto's movie round because he asked me to.
  18. Number 5 is one of my favorite Don Rosa comics.
  19. What Have You Bought?

    From here, most likely.
  20. Forum User Photos

    Clearly Kirby ate an arrow, Danny. Have you even played a Kirby game before?
  21. Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

    With the life system, having to start back at the start of the game every time you lose all of your lives and the lack of 1ups (which, in one of the most surprising design decision, don't even respawn!), losing all your experience points when you lose all of your lives really wouldn't have been that much of a stretch. I always felt that The Battle of Olympus was the game Adventure of Link should have been.
  22. The Legend of Zelda turns 25

    Four Swords Adventures was... weird. It was entertaining, but not much of a Zelda game. At some point in the future, when I have the money and willing friends, I'm going to buy a few GBAs and link cables so I can finally play the game in multiplayer. It really is too bad Nintendo didn't make this game without the NGC+GBA connection.

    So who does Kirby like more?
  24. bad stuff thread.

    Man, you should just take the train like a normal person. j/k
