I know most people are still lolFamitsu, but with most 40s I can remember them giving I understood the general thrust of why they did it...with this game, not so much. This just seems a lot like the same game I played 10 years ago, with some interface cleanup and laughably easy instead of incredibly frustrating.

Never give Famitsu scores much weighting. They're either extremely generous or paid for. I'll leave that up to the conspiracy theorists to determine.

I am currently working on an editorial for the site about etiquette and communication in online gaming. I'll be discussing trolls, elitists, misconceptions and preconceptions relating to playing games online.

If any of you have any interesting or amusing stories about times you have played online with any game, please share them! I'd love to hear them and, if they fit in with my editorial, I may well use them! If you'd prefer I didn't use them (or you don't want your name used in the editorial) then just let me know!

Thanks Guys!

I've been loving it since the get-go (though I am playing the PS3 version so the foreign language is keeping me on my toes). Like Shadow, I'm curious as to where you're at story-wise.

It seems interesting so I will probably try it out when it comes out.
But then again I live in Europe where any bad news concerning game releases is possible.

I wouldn't worry. Europe will get KH for sure. I'm from Australia (where we're even worse off!) and it's already available for pre-order. Collector's Edition too, apparently.

Man, they did a great job of making their point.

On the flipside, it's kind of creepy. I do feel bad for those people.

That looks fantastic. Exciting too. Knowing my luck it won't get a PAL release...

I had to laugh though when they were ducking behind cover. Made me think of Gears of War... haha.

I haven't played Dark Cloud 2, but consensus is that for many gamers it wins the "most improved sequel" award.  Dark Cloud was seen as meh, even bad, but Dark Cloud 2 is considered by many to be one of the best RPGs on the PS2

I played both and didn't like either. 2 was at least bearable, but still extremely repetitive.

Cool, thanks guys. I'd forgotten about the retro titles too. Thanks for listing them Hoshino!

Thanks for all the great suggestions guys! Gonna go check some of them out!
955  The Rest / General Discussions / Good PSN Games? on: July 05, 2010, 04:08:10 AM
Finally decided to take the plunge and buy a PSN store pre-paid card. I'm already planning to buy the LittleBigPlanet Pirates and MGS DLC. I'm probably also going to try flower.

Excluding DLC, what are some good original titles I should try out?
956  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: I have a PS3 (finally). Reccomend me stuff!!!!!! on: July 03, 2010, 10:14:21 AM
Siren: Blood Curse is a neat game, if you are a fan of the horror genre. It's on PSN, but I got a physical copy of the Asia version, since I didn't want a digital copy of it.

Australia got a physical copy! *points at the one sitting on my shelf*
957  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Games With Lots of Exploration.... on: July 03, 2010, 10:11:20 AM
Ultima 4 - 7, dammit ~~~. But mostly 6 and 7 and the Worlds of Ultima games. Also Ultima Underworld 1, at least.

Arx Fatalis would probably work.

Gothic 1 and 2 would REALLY work.

Star Control 2 would SUPER DUPER work.

Everblue 2, Aquanaut's Holiday, etc, though your mileage may vary about how well you like them. I personally adore them both although AH barely counts as a game.

Yume Nikki, Seiklus, Nifflas' stuff.

Uru, or the Myst games in general, really, although moreso Uru and probably Riven than like, Exile, or Myst 4, both of which were sort of linearish.

Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl and Call of Pripyat. Call of Pripyat is soooo gooooood.


I'd probably also toss in Omikron though I haven't played that in ages.

Tell you what I liked so much about this list? I wasn't familiar with about half the games! Haha. The only ones I'd played were Myst and Gothic. I liked Gothic 1, but as cool as the exploration was, there were a lot of problems with it. The ones I hadn't heard of I went and looked them up and there some awesome looking ones. Not quite sure how I could get my hands on them any more though...

The Baldur's Gate Series was intense for how precise you could hover your mouse over the environments (literally like a pixel big).

Fallout 1 and 2 are way better than 3, depending on your luck you could find some crazy shit randomly wandering around the desert.

Yup, got BG series. I haven't played FO1 or 2, but I know we've got them in stock where I work. Might take a look at picking them up.

Thanks for the suggestion, Sketch. I've never sold anything on ebay before, so I'm not really sure the best way to go about this. Do you think wanting to get $400 for all of these is setting my hopes too high?

You could get more than 400, I reckon. If you're lucky, some of those rarer ones alone could go for 50-60 each. Potentially even more.
959  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Games With Lots of Exploration.... on: July 02, 2010, 08:28:37 PM
Dragon quest 8 and final fantasy 12 both instantly pop into my mind for their huge worlds.

I've got DQ 8, but haven't played much yet. FF 12 I have played and I really enjoyed the exploration (it was a pity the story and characters were not good).

Fallout 3? Although in fairness that could essentially fall under "Elder Scrolls" games. ;-)

Haha, yeah. I actually didn't like FO3. I found the world too bland.

Vice City.

The only GTA game I've played is IV. I didn't like it. Though I do hear the earlier ones are better. I might give it a look.

~ ~ ~

Any other suggestions?

I can't decide whether or not to interject.

I think I'll stay with "no comment".... :P
