  1. My thoughts on Metroid Prime 2...

    Well, just started Metroid Prime again this morning, can safely say its one of 3 or 4 games that I consider to be the best games ever. Anyway, I need a little help, I cant figure out what It is im supposed to do once I get the power bombs, im about 47% throught it and im gonna try to finish it 100% in under 10 hours.

    ^ Actually, Im guessing It's because ToS was the easiest game ever. My eleven year old sister has completed it 7 (count em') times, and that was in the same summer holiday season aswell.
  3. My thoughts on Metroid Prime 2...

    I Agree with this guy. My god, the only person whose given a valid reason for disliking the game is Hero, the rest of you just don't like it because you're shit and unmotivated. The Metroid series is not for lazy gamers (except, perhaps for Prime 1, because that was amazing regardless of how good you were at it). Bottom line is, you get from it what you put into it, of course It wasn't going to be as utterly jaw dropping as 1, but then again I can only think of 2 or 3 other games in EXISTENCE that are. Retro had a smaller timescale to finish it in aswell, and yet it was filled with a killer story (which I suppose you miss if you don't scan everything) amazing enemies/bosses (anyone recall the butterfly boss? My jaw dropped when I first saw it). The finding of the keys was also fun! The amount of satisfaction you get when you discover their hiding places was amazing. Undoubtedly, the popular critique of this game is going to be that it is not innovative or groundbreaking enough in comparison with its predecessor. The question I pose is: why does it need to be? As a sequel, the purpose of Metroid Prime 2: Echoes is to expand and improve on the things that the original title did well, and it accomplishes this in superb fashion. With a new storyline that was way more cinematic; a more atmospheric and immersive world; a load of new beams, visors and enemies; and a multiplayer mode to boot, it was a complete masterpiece that does not disappoint in the least...well, perhaps the changing between worlds got a little tiresome due to the load times...but who can forget the sense of awe when you first switched on the Echoes visor, or when you go into dark aether and are greeted by different enemies and a sinister, bordering on evil graphical style? It was fucking immense people, and I have yet to play another First person title that has captured me as much as the Prime series... So quit your bitching and realise that the only reason you like prime 2 less is because you have been told it's not as good by the press, and because there's less hype surrounding it, so all you haters can clam up and grow a pair. Agon Wastes...Sanctuary Fortress, the locales were so damn memorable, and you can only call the boss design lazy if you've only completed about 20% of the game. Damnit, you people make me so angry, I might just hurt myself....When they strap me in the chair, let them know the murder was just.

  8. 1. Chrono Trigger - Undoubtedly the greatest piece of human art ever produced, absolutely perfect music to rival bach , an amazing, infinitely engaging story and amazing unique gameplay this is the game that difined the modern RPG, not Final Fantasy 7 as many think. I pity the fool who has'nt played Chrono Trigger. 2. Metroid Prime 2 - In my opinion, far superior to the first, same amazingly deep gameplay, yet the artwork and locations were so much more atmospheric and the music much more fitting. 3. Resident Evil 4 - The reason the cube's lifetime will forever be remembered by me as the good old, incredibly disturbing days. 4. Golden Sun: The Lost Age - I don't think there has been a single game i can remember that has angered me this much, not even games such as Contra and Ikaruge. Frustratingly difficult, yet amazingly rewarding, with tasks so ridiculously obscure, yet essential to the progression that i would'nt be surprised if 90% of the people who bought it did'nt complete it. Amazing. 5. Pokemon Red - This game turned me into a hermit. To the average eye, a benign game, for children even, but for anyone who plugs it into their gameboy , a manbeast of a game that refuses to let go. My mother cried when she first realised she'd lost me forever to Pikachu and co.
  9. Desert Island Game.

    Meh, Album : Master of Puppets - Metallica (Easily the greatest thing comitted to record) Book : His Dark Materials, Person : Dr. Cox from scrubs!! Food : Mangoes or Jaffa Cakes PS. I rule.
