You had a blast on the water temple on 3DS because it's easier to knock the boots. I mean change the boots

Haha true enough.  But it was more than that.  There is really only real mind teaser in the dungeon (where you have to raise the water, but go to a lower level than what you raised for or something like that - just a bit of "outside the box" stuff).  It's simple deduction too; if you can't do fuck-all in a room, clearly it's not part of where you're supposed to go.  If a room looks suspicious, then lo' and behold.

Man this game is pretty.  I really wanna play Twilight Princess right now... but I realized that graphically the game is of a much more "grim" aesthetic.  I adore the pallet of colours this game uses both in scenery and even dungeons

One thing I loved about Wind Waker is that even though you have that huge ocean, surprisingly there is no water level.
I personally hate water levels in pretty much every game and even when they are not bad per say, they are just way worst than the regular one. On the top of my head I can't think of one game with a good water level.

What I can think is one of my worst experiences as a gamer: Ocarina of Time's Water Temple.

If you go back to that dungeon, you'll realize it's not as bad as you thought.  I had a blast with in on the 3DS.

And funny enough, I was play WW just the other day, and that same thought occured to me.  More precisely, despite the body of water you never really see "under the blue" of it.

Normally, I feel exactly the same as Dice about this sort of game. I've never been a fan.

Yet I'm loving Totori. I don't know what it is exactly. Normally I hate time constraints: doesn't bother me here. Normally I hate pointless cut-scenes: I actually enjoy them here. Crazy.

I remember loving Iris on PS2.... but I was in high school then and my time constraints are nothing of what they are now.  Maybe I just need to really sit with it.

I love fucking around at home when I have the time.  Playing dress up, or using my ESTEEMED Photoshop skillz.  Usually I put them on Facebook, to avoid the self-made "facebook-angle" before goin to the club because I look FABULOUS that night (y'know, with the arm reaching the camera as it takes your picture as a chick kissy-face's their lips).  So I do these....

Shame you didn't like it. I like this kind of game for what they are, especially when after playing games where you need to keep your attention up all the time, like say Dark Souls, I like to have an alternative, something more relaxing.

I admired it.... I like how it's not that grandiose quest to save the world from some outstanding evil.  But the game just wasn't a priority to me.   I didn't like creating all these items for what felt like no reason, and hunting was really time sensitive (c'mon, it takes days to grab some flowers?).  I like how many short-cuts the game gives you... unfortunately the one they don't give you is to skip some of the pointless cut scenes.  Maybe I'll give it another shot when it's cheap, or give Meruru a go when it's out.

I found the 1st Ass Creed was the more "artsy" one, the next two are more balls-to-the-wall action.  I liked how you "interact" with each hit you kill before they do actually die.  But I love the series, certainly a creative spin on history.

Playing Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles - the Crystal Bearers.  I like it!  Despite the fairly unanimous negative response, I kinda like it.  I'm still getting the ropes, but I'm enjoying it for what it is (and gaaawd I love that opening title theme tune).

Traded this in today.  Too much work is one thing (and the slew of good games coming out would just keep dust on this one).  I didn't like the speed of the game: gameplay goes by waay too fast, and talking-parts drag on too slow especially for how numerous, and pointless, they really are.

I just finished the PS2 version of Okami. A little overrated, but good nonetheless.

I got sick of fighting after a while.  Also, the occasional muddy graphics (or inky, rather?) drove me nuts.
But I think it was loved, and should definitely be appreciated for, the fact it was a hyper-creative Zelda-like adventure with a badass painting mechanic.

I went back to the bar I worked at, and since then, my dick head manager had moved on to other business ventures.  The waitress gave me some serious stink because, get this, I didn't fund a gift card going away gift.  I wasn't too keen on him to begin with, but to give a man (who's not even getting fired mind you) money that I'm pretty sure he rounded-down every hour of our pay for, money as a going away can shove it.

Anyways.  Awesome night with the fellas anyhow. :D

Well, whatever the reaso, the thing is Wader staggers a lot more, ad it makes the Time Attack mode pretty much unplayable. I popped my PS2 version i just to make sure, and sure enough, I got through Time Attack with very little trouble.

Yeah, I didn't even bother with it.  It's waaaay too based on luck than skill.  Skill is half, you gotta get to the fuckers as fast as possible so you have time to kill as you stagger the rest of the battle.  Then you gotta hope to get a hit in. x(

Maybe I should get myself a second or third copy of TitS...

God knows I've paid twice as much for games I've like half as much.

Go buy this game, assholes!! >=(

It'd be a dirty...dirty ...dirty ass shame to miss out on the 2nd title.  I don't know why, but it'd be a real dick move to be left with the ending to the first one only. =/

Reviews where the writer is bad, or the score is bad? :P

The score.
6495  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: New Grading Scale Thread on: October 15, 2011, 12:55:04 PM
Wait, people read reviews?  I thought you were just supposed to look at the score and then complain (whether it be too high or too low, rest assured it is wrong).


When you're broke ....reviews are nice.

I like bad reviews, personally.
