Ahh, Snowboard Kids. I LOVED them so much. But then they had to go and make that horrible DS game.

Conker's I have played, and really enjoyed. Though I remember something about taking a lot of damage from falling even if you weren't up all that high.

Thanks guys. Lots of good suggestions!

Already played Katamari, and love the series. Same with Jet Set Radio. Space Channel 5 I haven't and I'm going to take a look into it.

But, I must say:

If you want both unique and unusual, you need look no further than The Void.  If only I didn't completely suck at it. :P

This one really grabbed my attention. The trailer looked awesome, but I still have no idea what the game is about. I better go wiki it! :P

I'm just not gonna comment on Idea Factory. Like a lot of other reviewers on the site, I think you guys can guess where I stand.

But damn those environments look bland. But maybe I'm just looking at the worst screenshots.

I've been trying to find something (of any genre) that is quite unique or has a rather unusual story/setting/characters or whatever in terms of content. I don't know how much sense that makes, so here are some examples:

-- Demon's Souls
-- Machinarium
-- Valkyrie Profile
-- The Path
-- GrimGrimoire
-- Odin Sphere
-- Ico
-- PoPoLoCrois
-- Shadow of the Colossus
-- Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
-- Alan Wake (Not unique, but has the kind of story I'm into)

For those of you more anime-inclined I'm talking about something like Bakemonogatari or Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni.

I know all those games cover quite a bit, but can you guys recommend me anything that I might enjoy having loved those?

Mine are pretty much based on how much fun I had while playing games on the system.

1) GBA
2) PS2
3) GC
4) N64
5) PS3

Note I never owned a NES or SNES. Otherwise they'd probably be up there.

I however, don't believe in revenge killings.

Gotta agree. While I'm right on board with what you think Neal, I'm against the death penalty.

That being said, she does deserve, otherwise, the harshest possible punishment.

Just bought my copy today. I've only played about 2 hours, but it's not really grabbing me yet. Not a big fan of the level design so far. But I'll play for longer and give it more of a chance.

Glad to see you getting into RPGs!

Just be prepared, a couple of posts back when you listed the RPGs you'll probably get... that is years worth of gaming right there. Heck, I have a backlog of RPGs nearly a mile high and I've been playing them heavily for the past eight or so years!
849  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Successful MMO economies on: October 26, 2010, 09:19:33 AM
Yup, spot on.

Though it seems new players are harder to find nowadays (though maybe they just don't stick out as much). And those that are new usually aren't A) savvy enough to think about stuff like that, B) Actually need the cloth themselves or C) don't have the confidence/knowledge to play the market game.

Heck, I've played WoW for a long time and I still don't have the confidence to 'play the market'. Sure, I sell stuff on the AH, but I've never tried to buyout stuff and resell it. I'd rather just quest for the gold. I like that more anyway.
850  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Successful MMO economies on: October 26, 2010, 08:43:48 AM
Warcraft certainly has player driven economies, but on most servers the prices are highly inflated. Primarily due to money being more readily available at higher levels and people realise players with high level characters often have a lot of gold to spend on their lower level characters and are too lazy to get said items themselves.

I know a few people on the server I play on who put almost all their time into making money off the auction house. They buy out specific items then re-list them at higher prices. One guy especially pretty much dominates all the cloth on the market.

What is with the huge-ass delay for this game in the EU? :(

Agreed. It's TBA 2011 for Australia.

Those flowers are fantastic! You've really nailed them. That last screenshot looks really, really good.

I like the colours you used for the desert tiles, but it looks a bit like spray paint. I think you're on the right track though.
853  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Wonder on: October 23, 2010, 07:47:42 PM
I agree with Prime.

But that grass looks so much better! Nice work!
854  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Halloween Haps on: October 20, 2010, 06:36:58 PM
Some people really celebrate Halloween here in Australia, but the vast majority are uncaring. I'm in that majority.

Plus, the kinds that do "trick or treat" in our neighbourhood are terribly behaved brats who are either A) really rude, or B) don't bother trick or treating and just throw eggs at peoples houses.
855  Media / Brush and Quill / Re: Book Thread Continued on: October 20, 2010, 08:42:30 AM
Thanks Az. Sounds like they're both worth taking a look at.
