I'm at the 2nd major boss battle in Contact and it's not an easy one.  Thing with some boss battles is that this boss and the previous one did attacks that were impossible to avoid.

I still love Jack Thompson's 1st grade playground level maturity.
5883  The Rest / General Discussions / PC World: Top Ten worst games ever on: October 23, 2006, 04:49:59 PM
Man, there are a ton of games that perhaps should be on the worst game list but are not.  Bokosuka Wars comes to mind, as does Tecmo Secret of the Stars, Star Voyager (or most anything by Acclaim), most licence tie-in games (i.e. Superman 64, that unplayable LotR game for GBA)...

It's honestly really tough to pick a top 10 worst games.  With the sheer amount of video games having been released from Pong to now, I'll bet for every really good game there are at least 10 that are junk.

I believe there will be a new Phoenix Wright game for DS released in 2007.  Phoenix Wright: Justice For All.

I freaking love Typing of the Dead.  That game's awesome.  I used to refer to it as "Mavis Beacon Zombie Typing."  

That Columbine RPG is creepy.  Was that thing made in an RPG Maker program?

Did someone say macabre murder mystery psychological thriller?

Methinks I'll have to look into this Death Note.

Okay, we're getting silly here.  

And it's no secret launch titles usually are subpar because the developers haven't gotten used to the hardware yet.  It's usually at the tail end of a system's lifespan when all the really cool stuff comes out, because by then the developers are really used to the hardware and can wring out all the possibilities.

...and once again, political threads and the intarwebnet don't mix.  

From political discussion to heated political discussion to personal insults and flaming... yeah, slippery slope.  

If you all want to argue, take it to PM now.  

Topic locked.  Have a nice day.

I'd love to TBD, but I'm having issues with the Nintendo USB thingy.  I bought my DS used w/o a manual or anything, so I have no clue how to set up the wifi stuff.  WEP, SSID, all that is heiroglyphics to me.  There's a MAC address in the system info but no Connection ID.  

Hopefully I'll get all that stuff figured out so I can do wifi stuff with Contact.

the gamestop I got it from only got a shipment of 3 copies...all preorder.  (Sorry if my grammar sucks.  I'm pretty drunk right now)

edit" I preordered touch detective while I was there.... methinkx that'll be a short chipment too.

I just started playing Contact for the DS.  I like it, personally, but I can definitely see why it has the mixed reviews that it does (especially regarding the battle system.)

See the Contact thread in Console RPGs for my initial impressions.

I love that song.  Heck, that whole album is fucking awesome.

Anyway, I just got my copy of Contact and here are my impressions after an hour or so of playing.  

This game is like a goulash.  The graphics are a mixture of 8-bit style with a more 32-bit 2D style with really nice prerendered backdrops.  The music thus far is also quite good, with a blend of old school MIDI and PCM and more new-school orchestration (like in the title theme.)  The game definitely has a quirky vibe, which is nice.  It really reminds me of Earthbound in that supreme silliness is handled with deadpan delivery.  

The only thing that took some getting used to was the battling.  When you press the attack button while Terry is in fighting stance, he doesn't attack when you press the button.  He auto-attacks in intervals.  It was tough to get used to at first, but I'm used to it now.  Fighting with techniques is much easier than melee fighting.  

So, yeah, the fighting may definitely be a turnoff for some.  And since the game's barely begun, I've yet to get to the real meat of the plot.    

The battle engine is the weakest part of the game, but despite that, I still want to keep playing.  The game is fun.

In all the MegaTen games, Kerberos has a lion-esque look rather than as a 3-headed dog.  Why?  I dunno.

"Cry For Eternity" by DragonForce simply for that little keyboard interlude at around 3:55 in the song.  I love it.  Sounds like something out of a video game.  And Herman Li did say in an interview that many parts of DragonForce songs will remind you of video games.  

DragonForce is so the epitome of complete and total awesomeness.  I mean, they're fucking DragonForce.
