I take either and like an option.  Always fun to hear how both languages decide to represent a character.

This has become my OFFISHAL Colossus Slaying tune.  Not that weird chorus shit when the black crud comes out... IT'S THIS!

Took out the 11th.  Feelin' gangsta. 
This game feels easier than it did 5 years ago when I took it on.  Yay?  Am I in gaming prime and does it exist?

Just waited.  I pulled one today that was with Agro only, but I got lucky, the hawk just came down low enough.

Also, you can probably get the fish riding one, it's much easier to get and it's in the lake en route to Colossus 8.

Just beat the "tiny" Colossus.  Pain in the ass.  It IS easy, but getting the opportunity to attack can take a while since it times its ramming attack very nicely with when you start getting up. =(
Players who haven't beaten the 11th yet, DUCK AND ROLL.

I was also happy when the Tortoise and Sand Worm didn't give me as much trouble as they did the first time I played the game.  L1 and Agro become my best friends.

Colossus #5 was incredible. I was blown away by the rush of speed the game conveys

Look at this asshole do it.  What's even more amazing is that the better part of a minute is just getting to him (skipped that ahead for ya).  THE BEST is how he gets from one wing to the other.

Does anyone know anything about how crystal lizards white-tailed geckos respawn/behave in Shadow?

I assumed there was one per save tower. But I came across a tower killed/saved then went on. I then fell off a cliff and respawned at the tower. There was another gecko so I killed that fucker then moved on. I passed by later and there was ANOTHER one. 3 at one tower.


Hmmmm?


I've been trying to ride a hawk for the last 30 min. I can grab on ok... but then they just fly into the ground.

The lizards are pretty unpredictable as far as I'm concerned... some of those fuckers come and go quick.  Best way to kill them is a sword (but they like to climb high, and arrows surprisingly aren't enough).  It may help to, sadly, survey the land a few times, because that grip circle CAN get pretty damn big.  I also got "3 tails" from the one same lizard. *shrug*.  Fortunately, you can also kill them with Agro running on 'em and the awesome beam of LIGHT from your sword!  ... even if you knew that, thought I'd say it because of the amount of "hidden controls" this game has.

For the Hawk trophy, go to the save point at D5.  A little south, theres a cliff and some rocks before the falling part of that cliff.  A hawk will, literally, come at you there, jsut time the grab.  It's a good open space and it's high up, so you should get your 30 seconds.  I think you can control it a bit too.

And I do wish Yoda was my Yorda, and glowed green instead of white.  And actually... wasn't useless, because I know Yoda is not.  Yoda be ballin'.

So could I.  Why did we arbitrarily decide that visual novels don't count?

That said, I'm not optimistic about this particular project.  Looks really bland.  And Kinema Citrus doesn't have much of a pedigree...they're pretty new and seem to have mostly done in-between work.  That doesn't mean it can't be good, but...


Visual Novels aren't really much of a game.  They're like big budgeted choose-your-own adventure books.  They're books that if they become popular enough, then 9/10 times they get adapted as shows anyway -- like it's almost the end of the line of what they "want" to become.

I'm talking working with more of a source material that involves a bit more action, a bit more of a "game" then hitting just hitting "next".

Arbitrary?  A bit... but, I don't know.  They just don't feel like proper games, it's quite literally just a "visual novel".

This project does look bland.  A bit of a shame, I thought the characters would haveworked really well for something almost "politics" driven... something missing from anime almost entirely nowadays...

.... is it weird this post gave me deja vu?

Final Fantasy XIII-2 is up to page 33: hasn't been released yet, and was announced for US release on Day 1. Come on... it's not like RPG NEVER talks about games before they are released.

To be fair, half the posts in the XIII-2 thread are bashing it.


I say for good cause.  Worst of all is the emphasis trailers and the bulk of what we're shown is the "drama" of it all.  Too little of trailers nowadays is solely gameplay, it's theatrics (hell, Dead Island really won it for their pony show).  Anyways, if FFXIII-2 is reviewed well, then I'd buy it... fact is, I think FF13 left a bitter taste in many people's mouths.  Hence the bashing.

Kinda why I find the sort of indifference about Zelda here odd.  The titles are usually very good.  Twilight Princess, to me, outclasses Ocarina in almost every aspect -- I thought that game was next to perfect (hell, I re-bought it to ensure it stayed in my collection [long story, and stupid brother]).

I can't wait for this, and I love how we have a master-sword chick guiding you, I kinda like Nintendo for these little twist characters that join the cast, even if it is kinda gimmick-y.... they've kept it fresh.
The item upgrade system will be a nice bonus too.

I like, and I HOPE, that Ganondorf [stupid name] stays away from this title.  When I said Twilight Princess was next to perfect, one aspect that sucked was how the game went away from this interesting new villain, Zant, and turned it into the Ganon Show.  I kinda like having this new fella in this game as well [Flock of Seagull guy with the diamond jumper]. ... but old habits die hard... if this is a more "origin story" to the Zelda Universe, it still may be kinda cool to see what they do with Ganondorf.

It looks like this title is really pushing a strong relationship between Link and Zelda in this one too.... about time?  I always hated that aspect of Ocarina of Time, where it seemed the subtext of EVERY female interaction was how much they want Link's cock in their mouths..... TMI?

Spirit Tracks' dungeons were ballin'.  Everything else was shit.

My copy still hasn't shipped.  What's up with that, NISA?

I got Shadow of the Colossus and Xillia... I just ordered it online.  I got like 50 game stores close by, but I just didn't wanna bother looking and wondering when it arrives so I paid two bucks more for shipping and I'll just let it come when it does.

I hope you don't need Rorona to get this game.  Given the first game's average reviews, I just kinda avoided it.
6523  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword on: September 30, 2011, 03:43:09 PM
I don't know much about this game but it looks fun, the lack of hype that I've seen in the Internet is quite impressive though.

Haha I just don't think you're in the right places.  There are plenty o' Zelda dedicated sites that take care of that.  And now, closer to the release, we're getting a lot more talk.

I'm surprised at the lack of chatter here though.  People not really like Zelda on this forum?  I'm looking forward to it like crazy (the bundle is a super-fucken-sweet deal).  I am really nervous with the wii-mote reliance though.

Haps: off the pick up a package from the post office! :D

I love when a big box arrives for me. :D
Happened yesterday, had some art books.  I danced around the house.

Well, how many video game adaptions are good?

If you count visual novels... then a lot.

Um, yeah, those don't count.  Visual Novels to me is one of those genres that isn't a genre.

I'm talking that not too many are actually memorable, nor try to go beyond the source material.  No one here is really disagreeing with me either, a lot of "not bads", but I want a "great".  I'm not even judging, actually, I've seen a lot of bad ones, I wouldn't mind a good one.
