Ew, I'd argue some of that list...

Fair enough - to be honest, I only included Twilight Princess because other people think it's good (I hated it) - but would you say that there weren't even five games on the Wii worth playing?

I think the rest of those games are worth playing, though.  Are they all legendary titles that will live on in the memories of gamers forever?  No.  But they're worth playing.

I'd say Twilight Princess is to the Zelda series as MegaMan 10 or X2 were to the MegaMan series. Fantastic level design but with mediocre weapons that had potential but never any practical use. The overworld being as bland as it was didn't help matters that much either nor was the wolf gimmick as it was basically lifted straight from Majora's Mask but without the versatility that the multiple transformations allowed.

I loved TP, I think it was the dark atmosphere was fresh and welcomed, to me.  And I loved some of the TP weapons, the spinner was great (when it actually *could* be used), the ball chain was fucking baller.  There is two things I hate, but this is a series fault than a title.  First, most weapons are only good in the dungeon you get it in (since you're free to choose which you want to hit first).  And the larger problem with them game entirely, is that it is too easy.  But again, I toss this to a fault of the series, I fucking hate the first dungeons of these games because you only have 3 hearts to emerge victorious with.  More than that, and you start to take a beating quite well.  Wolf link loses necessity, and the Twilight Dimension (the one short-ass dungeon) is barely scraped upon... damn shame.  I actually loved how Twilight looked, the dark and ominous tune was frightfully delighting -- it was so different!  And, c'mon, Midna deserves some credit for being somewhat enjoyable to watch (especially compared to Links other, seemingly, mandatory partners he gets in every game).

I thought this overworld was alright though... I don't know how you can say TP's overworld is bland without looking to the much more severely boring Ocarina-version of Hyrule.  The endless ocean was more interesting to look at than that one. 

Actually, in general.  I hate how the game makes me feel like it takes place in a crater you can't get out of, the edges of the Hyrule are nothing but earthen walls....

As you say, to each their own.  So my answer: hardly.  I own Brawl and the first Mario Galaxy, everything else was traded, and the rest was a Virtual Console download.

I have hopes that the new console will change this trend; fingers crossed.

At the present time, and with the Wii's Legacy.... I don't.

TYVM! and I'd never leave her, we've been together @9 yrs now and no one else would put up with my gaming addiction, lol!

I thank my boyfriend nearly every time I see him for the same thing.  I feel embarrassed sometimes where he tells me what book he's read, and I tell him what I played or drew.... =|

Well, even with 'management' of the security hole in the future it's not like the already hacked accounts are suddenly going to be fixed.

I place the blame firmly on Sony here.

Most definitely.  But... I can't say I didn't see some shit like this hitting the fan eventually.  This online console stuff was bound to have some reeaaal crap happen sooner or later.
6832  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Nintendo announcing new console at E3? on: April 27, 2011, 12:09:11 AM
Well, let's count Wii games worth playing.
Mario Galaxy 1 and 2
Super Paper Mario
Mario Kart
Warioware
Twilight Princess
Super Smash Bros
Okami
Kirby's Epic Yarn
Zack and Wiki...

The list goes on and on. It isn't doing so well right now, but there have been way more than five Wii games worth playing, and I'm willing to bet the next system will too.

And I swear I'm not a Nintendo fanboy. In fact, I'm not really even excited for the new console - hyperbole just bugs me.

Ew, I'd argue some of that list...

I hate these drama queens.  I guess this is the equivalent to Japanese Otaku finding out their "personal idol" just got a beau and tearing up whatever media they own.
There's a significant difference in having your objectification of a woman betrayed and having your trust in a company to keep private information properly safeguarded betrayed.


That's sort of why I followed it with the rest of the post. :P

Oh boy. There's people selling their PS3, others say that they will never buy anything from Sony ever again, fuck the NGP and tons of stuff like that over the Internet.

Makes you wonder how Sony's conference at E3 is going to be with all this mess.

I hate these drama queens.  I guess this is the equivalent to Japanese Otaku finding out their "personal idol" just got a beau and tearing up whatever media they own.

Mind you, any potential cases of identity theft will be a bitch, god forbidding.  I really hope they manage this situation somehow in that regard.

Been a really rough last couple of years health wise for my G/F, so what keeps me going is hope for a better future.

I'm sorry to hear that -- but i'm happy and amazed you stay with her through the trouble as well...!
6836  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: George Hotz (geohot) VS Sony. on: April 26, 2011, 08:41:27 PM
What a mess - I can't believe it took them that long to report this though... they must been tugging at their ties.

Ok, this is X-file level conspiracy, but it does make you ponder...

It is also interesting to note that they waited until after the press conference for their soon-to-be-released PlayStation tablet and after the stock market had closed before releasing the official announcement.

I blame the cigarette smoking man.

Smart. :P

I'm staring at the galaxy map screen... but the whole "song" isn't playing. What gives?

It feels like Thomas Newman jumped on a video game train.  ... I dig.

I'm back on Tales of Eternia.  I beat secret boss Valkyrie with relative ease.  But I'm a pussy to face Cless and Arche in the arena.. =(

When I heard about this new console I started thinking to myself, a new console already? But the Wii hasn't even been out that long! Then I realized the Wii came out in 2006. I felt like it never even hit a high point. Or maybe I just missed out on it? I'm still rocking my PS2 after all these years.

Haha this made me laugh.  To me, the console hit the steep high at Brawl, and declined after it as well.  There's nothing sadder looking than the Wii section at a video game store.  I can't say I've every wanted to play the 'Nerf' game.

your talking to someone who eats up strategy rpg's. sprites arent the problem honey. the problem is they STILL have this attacking at air with damage numbers appearing over the enemy. is it to much to ask to at least have the characters jump next to the enemy before attacking?

Nostalgia... fucks you every so often.
