  1. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    I think that's his plan - to make his screenshots so hard to guess that everyone else will post screenshots to keep him from doing so, thereby giving him more chances to guess and everyone else less chances to get points. It's very clever when you think about it!
  2. Newbie

    This thread is now about Arrested Development.
  3. New Red Dwarf next year

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I couldn't jump into the middle of a series like that. Plus nothing of what I've watched was good enough for me to feel like giving the series a shot past that. But yeah, good news for the fans. I know Red Dwarf is popular with the Brits.
  4. New Red Dwarf next year

    I tried to watch Red Dwarf a few years ago, but gave up halfway through the third season. Unfunny stuff. I guess this is great news for the fans, but I was under the impression that people weren't too fond of the new episodes?
  5. What a sucker...

    I've never been afraid of getting raped by a cake before.
  6. What a sucker...

    What about in a sexual sense? Anyway, happy birthday, Dyson.
  7. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    Hadouken! I did think it looked like a Street Fighter character, but couldn't think of where the original screenshot fit into any of those games. Not that I've ever played them. Edit: But I guess the whole point of the original screenshot was to confuse us, so...
  8. The Amazing Spider-Man

    JJJ is entertaining and all, but I'm more upset about the reported lack of Mary Jane. Ah, maybe they'll surprise me and make me love Gwen Stacy. And then they'll probably end up killing her off.
  9. Chips/Crisps?

    What shoes do you wear when you break into someone else's house in the middle of the night?
  10. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    17 has to be Daytona USA.
  11. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    Aw man, 11 is Shenmue, isn't it? Talk about cheeky.
  12. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    What happened to the list I sent you, Nando? 13 appears to be Shenmue II, at least (I only figured this out because you mentioned the game the other day).
  13. Newbie

    ... Are you saying we should take her to an amusement park? Oh God, please let that be what he's saying.
  14. Newbie

    ... Yeeesss... Unless you're suggesting we put it on display instead? Because that seems a bit harsh. She is a new member, after all.
  15. Ghost Trick

    Yeah, I kept expecting the game to get harder later on, but it never really happened. The last case in particular was surprisingly easy. But I suppose there was only so much they could do with your limited powers. Pretty much all you could do was move from objects that were close to each other and interact with some things, so your options were always limited. Once you'd tried using something to find out what happened when you did, it was usually obvious what you needed it for. Not that it made me enjoy the game any less. I still felt clever whenever I found the solution to a puzzle.
  16. Newbie

    Who are you again? Oh, and welcome to the forum. I'll help you hide the body.
  17. Sure it is. I love how the article spends three paragraphs talking about how sad it is to see all of these game systems destroyed, and then at the end they add, "oh, and twenty people are dead and many more are missing, whatever". But then I've come to expect nothing less of Kotaku. I hope your other uncle is okay, Dyson.
  18. Paper Mario: Sticker Star

    Unlikely. If they did a full 3D Mario & Luigi game, it would have to be the size of a small 3D Zelda to live up to the previous games (well, the two good ones, anyway), and there's no way Nintendo would spend so much money on what's a comparatively small series. As for 2D, sprites would never happen and Wario Land-like graphics would just make the game look like Paper Mario anyway. As excited as I am for this new Paper Mario game, I kind of wish they'd kept the series away from the domain of the Mario & Luigi series.
  19. bad stuff thread.

    Don't you check this thread to be entertained by other people's misfortune?
  20. What Have You Bought?

    I knew some people a few years back who were very into solving Rubik's Cubes, and they were also very careful about always buying the best Rubik's Cubes available, as well as keeping them greased for easy turning. They really were a lot of fun to use, though. Much better than the sucky old Rubik's Cube I have at home.
  21. Ghost Trick

    The downside to importing games... Beats waiting for the iOS version, at least! Missile may just be the best character of all time. How hard did you find the game? I found it surprisingly easy, but I'm kind of glad that I never ended up stuck like I do sometimes in the Ace Attorney games, where you'll end up pixel hunting in a crime scene for thirty minutes or presenting every piece of evidence. The only time I was stuck for a while in Ghost Trick was in the park, and that was my own fault for missing that you could interact with one thing.
  22. Mortal Kombat

    I thought it was funny.
  23. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    I'm guessing Dog-amoto is probably itching to do another round right now, but I'll try to put together a round for the next time there's a lull. Expect no obscure Japanese games!
  24. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    I can't speak for anyone else, but I'm up for trying it the way Aimless suggested or any other way. If it works, it works. If it doesn't, then we can try something else. But next time, please use screenshots that I know.
