Song of the moment is "Swimming Pool" by The Nerve.  Joe Nerve is the guy I bought my Warwick bass from, and this song and video are awesome.  Fun and very funny.  There are even a few shots of him playing that Warwick.  It is definitely cool seeing a glimpse into my bass' wild past.

Killy- having a lovely lady such as yourself refer to me as a "sexy...beast" totally validates that performance and video.   You rule!

And I must admit, we certainly have an attractive populace here at the Fan.

To address you Prime Mover, I refer to mature is what Fox said in the post above me.  

I agree there is a difference between Fear Effect 2 and BMX XXX, both of which had mature ratings but while the former was a truly artful title with thoughtful content and storytelling, the latter was just raunch for the sake of being raunchy.  

And since people asked, Tactics Ogre was originally released on Super Famicom in 1995, Japanese Playstation in 1997, and US Playstation in 1998.  I still think it had a darn well written storyline.

What about the monkey? How could you forget the monkey? You can't have Super Ross Kart without the monkey.  

Oh, and you gotta use Rachel's hair as the ultimate power up.  Back in the day, every woman and her great aunt Ida Mae was getting "the Rachel" at hair salons.  

As for Mario vs. Sonic... I still say neither and remain loyal to Alex Kidd.

Modern pop culture references in video games are really a love it/hate it thing.  I'm normally not fond of them in high fantasy settings, but am okay with them in more modern settings.  Modern pop culture references fit better in a game like ShenMue than in Lunar to me.  

But go figure, I really liked Yo-Jin-Bo.  That game mostly takes place in feudal Japan has the princess talking about being a Pokemon master and her vassal doing impersonations of Mickey Mouse.  I really should have disliked that game since I usually cringe at pop culture references and modern "hip" dialogue  in historical or high fantasy settings, but I really enjoyed that game.  

Another game (or games) I reviewed that together had one of the best video game stories I'd ever experienced but near non-existent gameplay was the Exodus Guilty saga.  Truly epic in scope, yet with tight character-driven plotlines.

MeshGearFox- To clarify, I meant with regards to console gaming.  As you said, PC gaming's had mature games with mature storylines well before consoles did.
5513  The Rest / General Discussions / Miyamoto: Don't blame me for Star Fox's decline, bitch. on: May 08, 2007, 06:14:12 PM
Eh, Miyamoto comes off in that article as being a bit too full of himself.  Who is he to say that Bungie didn't create something the way they wanted to with Halo?  That was rather condescending.  

Wasn't there a thread recently discussing Nintendo's general smugness over the years?

At the very least, the Capcom developed Zelda games Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages games were good.  EDIT: Minish Cap was good too.
5514  The Rest / General Discussions / VAGINA POWER on: May 08, 2007, 12:39:10 PM
Why does "Vagina Power!" sound like a wacky-ass battle cry that would occur during a hentai anime that parodies Sailor Moon or some other magical girl type thing?  Yeah. buncha hentai girls in skimpy fukus screaming "VAGINA POWER!!!" as they destroy an evil penis monster that rapes little girls.

I wonder if that would be a battle cry during a Project A-Ko hentai parody.  After all, since A-Ko is the child of Superman and Wonder Woman her vagina muscles are probably strong enough to crush steel.  That's vagina power.    

And as I was listening to this, the first thing that popped into my mind was this picture on the band Clamfight's myspace.  I think the band sucks, but hte drawing is awesome (not worksafe, though.)

Sorry, but though there is seriousness in the videos and the lady's assertions (some of which I can't necessarily disagree with), this was just BEGGING me to be a snarky jackass.
5515  The Rest / General Discussions / Why Mario is "cool" and Sonic is not... on: May 07, 2007, 06:05:52 PM
Mario Orgy and Mario Does Dallas starring Ron Jeremy you say?  Dude, that'd be fucking great.  

In any case, screw the fat plumber and the Urkel hedgehog.  Alex Kidd is where it's at... or where it *was* at.  Alex Kidd for the win!  Alex Kidd was cooler than Mario and Sonic combined.  Even the shitty Alex Kidd games were not *too* bad.  

I'm still a petulant 8 (I turn 9 tomorrow) year old who'll keep throwing useless temper tantrums until Sega brings back Alex Kidd and does a remake of Panzer Dragoon Saga.

Though I'm not much of an SRPG fan, I just realized that the Tactics Ogre games are always ambitious about their writing.  I remember playing the first Tactics Ogre and being impressed by the maturity of the writing, and this was a time when "mature" gaming with "mature" writing/storylines was still near nonexistent.

It also did the branching storyline thing really well.  

Difficulty was merciless though, so I GameSharked that thing.

I just caught wind of a new metal band called Sanctity.  They're on Roadrunner records... but they're good.  They're not nu-metal at all.  In fact, they have that headbangable old school thrash sound that I grew up with.  No goofy-ass low tunings that sound clunky rather than heavy.  When nu-metal bands drop to low C or even low A, it sounds horrid.  Some of the heaviest metal I've heard isn't far from standard tuning- usually drop E-flat or drop-D.  One of the best thrash metal bands in my area tunes standard.  

Sounds like Sanctity tunes to drop E-flat or drop-D at the lowest.  

Song of the moment by Sanctity is "Beneath the Machine" and it's a great metal song.  It's headbangable, thrashy, and about getting tattoos.

I was doing some spring cleaning at my apartment and at my folks' house and I wound up junking a whole bunch of my old and semi-old video game systems.  But one system I didn't junk was my SNES.  I only have one game for my SNES and that's Chrono Trigger.  

I hooked up the SNES to a TV in the basement and played from one of my old saves (a new game plus save; characters around level 90).  I realized how much I love the game.  As far as RPGs go, it's damn near perfect in my eyes in all areas.  The story is fun, the characters are endearing, the writing has charm & wit, the gameplay is fun, the visuals are great (it has better sprite motion detailing than some 2D RPGs in the 32-bit era and beyond), the music is stellar... I've played and replayed this RPG more than any other RPG ever.  

Damn fun and addictive game.  And so charming.

http://www.rpgfan.com/reviews/chronotrigger/Chrono_Trigger-7.html this is an old reader review I did of Chrono Trigger.  

Chrono Trigger is easily a top 5 game for me.  (I wasn't a big fan of Chrono Cross.)

Eh, what the hey.  I'll shamelessly one up all of you with video footage of yours truly.  Some of you saw it in the YouTube thread on the music forum, my Livejournal, or the MySpace, but here's my pseudo-band Godzilla Vs. The Smurfs (it's me and my friend Richard).

Oh, I got confused when you said 2nd way through.  I thought you were referring to the Capcom path since I mentioned I was on the SNK path.  

Don't I feel dense not even thinking new game plus.  I guess I won't be playing new game plus then... but after 22 floors of card battling, I probably wouldn't want to.  

In any case, my Rimoruru card has gotten me out of more tight spots than I can count.  She's definitely my favorite card.  My Momoko card is my "bimbo" card.  Looks hot, but not the most useful.
