  1. Gameees On The Goooo

    They wouldn't have been able to make the graphics nearly as impressive if the game hadn't been on rails, though.
  2. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    FINALLY. Next time you should just give us the name of the game.

    They do a great job at keeping you guessing right up until the end of the game. The only big twist I saw coming was...
  4. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    Man, this round is never going to end. Knowing Nando, it's some really obscure Japanese game that no one's ever heard about. Try searching for those.

  6. PlayStation 3 Console Discussion

    I think it's okay because the whole thing is hilarious. /Schadenfreude
  7. Ghost Trick

    Play Assassin's Creed 2! Now there's a sequel that improves upon everything that was wrong with the first game. Of course, it helped that there was so much wrong with the first game... I've never played either of the Shenmue games (maybe if they'd port the first one...), but I've certainly been given the impression that the sequel is... smaller in scope, I guess? Too bad it's not as good as the first one. I can't bring myself to play Banjo-Kazooie because the people raving about that series are the same people who rave about Donkey Kong Country - a series I really dislike. So I'm worried it'd be the same with Banjo.

    That was actually one of the reasons I bought the game at release! Originally I was going to hold off until after I'd played Valkyria Chronicles 2. Of course, I ended up loving the game, so now I'm glad I bought it when I did, even if only one other person appears to be playing it. I think you're a bit late on sharing your experience in Shenmue II with other people. As for Banjo, that's a series I've put off playing for the longest time, so I'm actually kind of glad that you're not enjoying Tooie. Makes me feel better about not giving the games a chance! Man, very little of this was on topic.
  9. Ghost Trick

    One the plus side: when you're playing the game and really enjoying its awesomeness (or at least you'd better, or we can never speak again), I'll sit there sad about not being able to experience the game for the first time like you are. Schadenfreude! But yeah, add it to your list and tell us what you think of it when you get around to it.
  10. The Walking Dead

    I haven't read the comic book yet (comics are expensive), so I can't compare them, but the TV series is really good. From what I can remember, it's basically an adaption of the first trade paperback (so the first six issues), though obviously there are some changes. We'll have to see how closely they stick to the comic book's story in the future. Anyway, you should definitely check it out.

    I really thought this game would get more love on this forum. Did you people not play the Ace Attorney games? Anyway, I just finished the game after about ten hours, and I really, really loved it. It's right up there with the Ace Attorney series for me in terms of good DS games. The story had a lot of twists and turns and it kept me hooked throughout. The whole game takes place during one night and moves at a much faster pace than the Ace Attorney games. The fact that the game just tells one long story (instead of being divided into separate cases) probably adds to that. They keep piling on new revelations and secrets, as well as connecting everything with everything, but it never feels convoluted and it all makes sense in the end. The characters are great (Missile!) and, as you'd expect, quirky. I really love the character animations, which give them a lot of personality. In fact, the art style in general is great. With its 2D backgrounds and cel-shaded characters, the game is going to age really well. The gameplay is simple, but I had a surprisingly good time moving from object to object and manipulating them. The game mixes things up enough for it to always feel fresh, and I liked how not every chapter was about going back in time to save someone from dying. Failing never actually becomes a huge issue, as the game is very forgiving with checkpoints. That said, if you do get stumped in a place where it's possible to fail, you may have to replay things over and over again, but we're talking probably less than thirty seconds each time, so it's not a big deal. To sum up: WHY IS NO ONE PLAYING THIS TOTALLY AWESOME GAME?
  12. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    Nah, the game doesn't look familiar and MCJ seemed so excited that I wouldn't want to ruin this for him anyway. Though if he doesn't guess soon, he might miss his chance.
  13. ScribblerToo - You can draw too!

    Well, now I'm depressed. I can't wait to find out Plant Boy's no doubt very depressing story.
  14. I'm very jealous of your continued success. I'm not near London, but I hope some of the people who are check out your play. Best of luck.
  15. Teen Idol Covers Pokémon Theme

    How can you run out of thanks all the time? You're such a thanking whore.
  16. Teen Idol Covers Pokémon Theme

    But it was made using clips from one of the High School Musical films... wasn't it?
  17. Name That Game: 2011 Edition

    I guess that leaves the floor open for MCJ. Better not be wrong, or it'd be pretty embarrassing.
  18. Got A Friend Into Astrology?

    You used to be cool, Shorty. Now, not so much. Please go away.
  19. Books about manipulation

    Yeah, that's not how links work, Daft.
  20. What Have You Bought?

    Until I scrolled down, I was all, "she's taking the train to go look at pigeons?". Of course, the pigeons are cuter...
  21. Got A Friend Into Astrology?

    Astrology, God, stars... there's something there.

  23. Got A Friend Into Astrology?

    Could be worse - you could be an Ophiuchus.
  24. Got A Friend Into Astrology?

    Eh, it wouldn't do any good. Whenever I point out the flaws in the silly things some of my Facebook friends are into, they "don't take it that seriously". But the next time a horoscope manages to be right or whatever, it's SO COOL.
  25. Silent Hill 8 (Vatra Games)

    You should play 2 and 3 and skip the original instead. It's kind of adorable in its PS1-ness, but the story is so badly told that it's hard to take any of it seriously. 3 is actually pretty good (and makes sense of the story in the original), though it's not quite as atmospheric as 2.
