  1. Well, this is one of the reasons it sold so bad. People where expecting some kind of traditional 3rd person shooter, while it is much more an old school shoot em up in 3d format. Yes, it is short, and yes, it is quite linear, but if you don't try to play it like a traditional 3rd person shooter and instead try to think of it like a shmup it works really well. It's a lot more Ikaruga than Max Payne. I doubt they will make a sequel, although I would really like it if they would. The game had a lot of style and unique gameplay, sadly it was very misunderstood.
  2. I am so looking forward to this. I am feeling quite lucky, two of my biggest wishes for the Wii was a Battalion Wars sequel and a sequel or another platforming game from the team that made Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. In a few weeks I will play both! And I think they will be able to pull of multiplayer, from IGNs impressions (which I usually take with a grain of salt) it seems like it might be them just trying out this demo, nothing says how the real thing will play.
  3. Cannabis is not at all physically addictive. This is a fact that has been confirmed numerous times by all kinds of people. However, everything that makes you feel good can be "addictive". Like sex. Or if you get into the habit of reading the newspaper in the morning, you might be upset if you don't get the chance one day. About the tar, first, you don't need to smoke it, and second of all, most research say that the average cannabis user has a lower chance of getting cancer than the average smoker. Why? First of all, the average smoker smokes a lot more cigarettes than the average cannabis user. Second, the average cannabis user can consume cannabis in other ways, like eating or using a vaporizer, that doesn't cause cancer. Third, cannabis includes anti-cancerogenic (sp?) substances. Still, cannabis is a drug, it is harmful and is something that shouldn't be taken lightly. It's mainly the hypocrisy I am against. Why are drugs like tobacco and alcohol legal? Alcohol is a very bad and destructive drug. Also, a lot of pharmaceutical drugs are very very bad, but they are legal.
  4. Well, since everybody but me was free today, and I am now sitting at work makes me a bit bummed out. Especially since my girlfriend came home at 4 o clock in the morning and woke me up with a drunken smile, which was in a way somewhat nice but also pissed me off since I had to go to work at 8... anyway, I am not that happy. Need sleep. And beer.
  5. And you say that as a bad thing? I think it looks a bit like a good NES game cover.
  6. "Buy it, buy it, buy it..." Wohooo, finally some new Futurama!
  7. I liked it, but it wasn't that spectacular.
  8. Well, ehm, it is a new Mario game, and Miyamoto has a very active role. It looks quite amazing, previews has been very positive ( some going as far as it is better than Super Mario 64 ). What more do you need to know??
  9. Reggie said they would be able to ramp up the production for Christmas, so lets see how it goes. If they have enough consoles (and Galaxy) to go around, I cannot see anything else than a succesful Christmas for Wii.
  10. The first one was pretty good, and really fun and this looks like it's just improved. Seems like a must buy for me.
  11. Yes, it was really great. Or rather, the main gameplay was really great, but it suffered from being a bit short (even though some special missions where pretty cool!) and no multiplayer. Still, I recommend to pick it up, I got it for a friend for like a fiver a couple of weeks ago.
  12. Also, the SMG (Sub Machine Gun) pickup is more or less confirmed now.
  13. Firmware can be the "OS" of a device (for example, the Nintendo DS firmware is the same as it's "OS" in one sense, even though the DS doesn't really have a "OS"). Firmware is usually what controls the basics of a hardware device, like, the BIOS of your PC. The line between firmware and OS is quite fudgy, and it also depends on your definition of Operating System.
  14. Yeah, it's Spanish laughter
  15. Metroid Prime was my favourite game the last generation, and this is one of the main reasons. The atmosphere and mood is simply fantastic and nothing else I've played has bested it.
  16. I saw the movie Stay yesterday, and it was quite good, I'd rate it 6/10 (note, for me, 5/10 is watch-worthy while 10/10 is so friggin' awesome I'd only give it to like 2 movies) And for me, watch-worthy is a good score, I don't watch or like crap movies and thus I don't finish watching that many movies.
  17. For me it is like this: SM64 is the "better" game if you compare it to other games during it release, and to how it changed the industry. But SMS is a better game, becouse the gameplay is more fun, the worlds are much more vivid, I felt much more compelled to play SMS than SM64. Sure, I completed SMS faster then SM64, but it was mainly becouse: I played SMS a lot more (ie, when I got it I took a day off and then played it during the weekend, while SM64 I had school, other things to do etc) and I am better at games like that. But I loved just jumping around some of the SMS levels, it was wonderful. In short, SMS felt much more like a real world for me, while SM64 was "just" levels.
  18. I think both the Final Fantasy series and the Resident Evil series are overrated, not to say I think they are bad game series, I just don't think they deserve all the acclaim they get. For me, both (with the exception of RE 4) have various basic gameplay troubles that bothers me all the time when I'm playing them. I also think GT is overrated, but then again, I've never liked realistic racers much.
  19. What I would like in F-Zero Wii: Multiple control settings (nunchuck, classic, wiimote etc) A mix between X and GX in gameplay Multiplayer - offline and online Track creation tool - similar to the N64DD cartridge Online community - share tracks, replays etc
  20. Yes, I thought the graphics in the trailer where quite cool (and much more like Killer7 than this is) and much more stylish. This looks like crap compared.
  21. Just FYI, that's a fake quote. I wonder why Germany is so hard against video games, are they like that with movies etc as well?
  22. Ganondorf vs Captain Falcon (they are quite different, check out their speeds and mass, I'm wicked with Ganondorf but not even close with Captain Falcon), and Marth as faster attacks, Young Link is very different from Link (well, I'm almost the only one who thinks that, but I kick arse with Young Link but I'm only decent with Link). I say keep the "clones", they make the game much more varied and they probably take a fraction of time to develop than a totally new character.
  23. Did you guys really think all the bloom etc effects would be on the GameCube version aswell? And they stated before that the twilight realm would look different on the GC version. And Knives, I doubt the delay was only to release it on Wii, I think they wanted this Zelda too be a Zelda fans wet dream so they've continually improved it ever since.
  24. I hope they just use the time to perfect the singleplayer to the point where it will be as good or perhaps even better than Prime 1 (it's one of the best game this/last generation IMO) and that they perhaps later on releases a Metroid Prime Battles or something which would just focus on multiplayer (offline,online,LAN) and no singleplayer at all (just perhaps with bots or something).
