I loved the ending more than the show...  something very "singable" about it (and not cuz it's english)

A lot of "gay" and "gofuckyourself" or some derivative appeared in the G's.  Why am I singling out the G's?  Trying to see if my G password would pop up of course!

At least I know if I may need to hack into someone PSN, there's a good chance it's "12345" or "password".

Beat Ass Creed Revelations.  It was nice continuing the story of Altair, and finishing up with Ezio -- a really gallant end too.  But if you followed the "secret" half of the story, left no real surprises in the "present" timeline.

The defend the den wasn't too bad.  I just didn't bother in the end though. I also respect Ubisoft in how they fix elements that get annoying from subsequent titles (the hook claw is baller, and bombs are awesome).

Surprisingly, I wasn't keen on the "Desmond Chapters", the first person puzzles were just damn frusturating and hardly worth the effort, and the Character on the Animus Island could have and probably should have had a bigger role.

The game is gimmick-y but in all the right ways.  I can't wait for AssCree3~!!  A year away.. D:

All I ask from Final Fantasy: less pissy and hormonal man-girls and retarded women.

I guess it's a Japanese thing, but I hate... HATE when they yap on about "what we're fighting for" and all that BS.
I think that's one thing I've hated about games with Nomura at the helm, the characters are just way too one-dimensional, they're way too sad most of the time, and constantly bitch on "war is bad" topics.  At least, that's mostly what FF13 was for me, dialogue-wise.

I think thats why Tales of the Abyss had an easy-to-love character to set.  At least you grow with them, you see them through the good, the bad, the silly, whatever.

I easily could have looked aside FF13s story if the characters were at least easier to love.

...I'm not touching gameplay till I play it.  The monster-schtick has me worried.  It sure as hell didn't work out for "Tales of Symphonia 2". *groan*.

I beat a certain mid-boss in DQ8 over the weekend.  I haven't touched this game in years because apparently, I was a big gigantic pussy and quit after dying to this battle - once.  I fought around, got a Zombie Slayer weapon for the hero, and got 1 level for everyone.  I owned both forms of the boss pretty easily.

Honestly, stopping playing this game is probably one of my biggest gaming regrets.  My original game had 33 hours in which seemed like a big waste to start over.  Been trying to figure out what happened previously and re-acclimate myself to the world.  Figure I'll just trudge on.

I stopped mid-Nocturne too.  I plan to finish it, but I think I may just erase my file without even looking at it.  I can't say "I'm too far in" if I don't know where I was!

I quit DQ8 w/ about 35 hours in.

I quit before I started.  I hate DQ.
A friend lent me DQV or VI for the DS...forgot which.  I played for ten minutes.

The lowest scoring review is out: http://au.gamespot.com/the-legend-of-zelda-skyward-sword?section=&subsec=title

Thoughts? Seems like the reviewer mostly feels there's nothing new and fresh enough for the series. 7.5 does seem like a bit of a cry for attention but, as I haven't played it yet myself, I'll reserve my judgement.

I always like the bad reviews, gives another perspective.

Anyone else get sick of "repetitive" criticisms for games?  Which games isn't really (obviously, some more than others)?  By that standard, shouldn't all racing games be rated like shit since all you do is race?

Nintendo do some experiments with Zelda on handhelds but nobody gives a fuck, not nowadays anyway. And well, I think is time to post this thing...

lul, yup.

I'm curious if Tina will address this at all.  Anyways, lots of people are pissed, hopefully NBC will do something to UN-piss people off.  Anyways, isn't it 30 Rock's last season anyways?

Saw the first two seasons of "Community" and I love it. :P

Meanwhile:  The show has been put on an Indefinite Hiatus (whatever that means).
Google it (too lazy to put link).

I prefer monk/rogue characters.  The kinda under-the-belt and lockpicking types.  I like going cleric too because I charge people for their good health. :D

You should put it on a pepperoni pizza as a gag.

Aw man.  You got me questioning what nipples taste like.  I imagine it being like pepperoni... but like a pepperoni candy (ie; bad).

I have 3, take one of mine.

Thank you.  I will adore it until I can trade it in for my Black and Gold Zelda 3DS.

TP was very rigidly linear, even the trade quest is not only required but must be done at a specific point, not sooner or later. It's not like I want wildly free roaming or it to be completely open, but in OoT you could, say, choose to get the hookshot immediately, or go to get Epona, or even poke around at all the changed/new places THEN address what had to be done. TP, if it wasn't completely optional it had to be done when they wanted you to do it, and that kills some of the fun of exploring since you really don't have any practical choice BUT to go where they tell you. I'm not expecting Skyward Sword to fix that, especially after some I've heard, but it should still be a lot of fun and be one of the only games to REALLY take advantage of the Wii Remote in a way that neither a standard controller or KB/M couldn't address just as well.

OoT had to have had the most *boring* overworld in the entire series.  Majora's Mask at least gave you a moon and tripped-out inhabitants.
You say "explore", I ask "what?".  Zora's Domain get's frozen for the greater half and doesn't "unfreeze", the bitches in the desert won't let you in for a long time, Kakariko has got to have the creepiest inhabitants and foundation for a town to ever set on, Lake Hylia is a hole with some water in it (Shadow of the Colossus at least let you see a turtle in their lakes), Lon Lon is troubled by family disputes, and Hyrule field is surrounded by bear-sized-man-eating Plants.

The lack of exploration in TP is remedied by the third dungeon where the world is opened up to you and you get your horse as early as the second dungeon.  It was more linear, but really not *that* much more than OoT really was.  Besides, not like you could do much in OoT without the Longshot anyhow. 

On a final cheese.... what the FUCK was Nintendo thinking with Ocarina of Time's Great Fairy's??  They're a cross between that creepy North American take on fairy culture and a hooker you can't take you're eyes off because she's so ugly.
