2086  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Halloween Haps on: October 26, 2010, 02:00:34 PM
It's quite big around here(here being the burbs of Chicago). We normally get +/- 200 kids. Every city has set times for trick or treating. Our hours are 3:30-6. I think this is idiotic because if Halloween happens during the week, things are all screwed up due to school and parents working. I also think it sucks because all trick or treating is done before it gets dark. "for safety reasons" say the uptight soccer moms. Bunch of wusses. Halloween is WAY cooler in the dark.

I never understood the whole "hardtype" business. I remember the game being plenty challenging back when I played it as FF II on the SNES. And this was way before I became a wuss about challenge in games. No way would I want to play a harder version.
2088  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Castlevania - Lords of Shadow on: October 26, 2010, 01:49:55 PM
Screw the Halos, Call of Dutys, and Fallouts. I want my Castlevanias and Metroids!

Man, Fallout was undoubtedly in the same position or lower than Castlevania before Bethesda bought it.
I know it doesn't seem to belong next to the other two. I only mentioned it because it seems to be selling like hotcakes despite all the problems it supposedly has. Like people are just SO desperate to get a game, any game. I don't get it.
It's like there's only a certain amount of games/series that sell like crazy, then everything else fights for the scraps. People need to look outside of the "Top Tens" a bit more.
Black Ops will be out soon. It's guaranteed to sell in the multiple millions. Why? So people can play another game just like the one they played a week ago?(Not to say Castlevania is all that original)
I would love so much to see it sell only 130,000 copies.

Yeah, I would like to know where can I find how big of a budget this game had and how well it sold

I'm not sure how truly accurate their #'s are, but it's probably pretty close.
No idea on budget.

Bayonetta is pure insanity! It's fun, but most of the time there's so much going on that I just have to mash the buttons,and hope it all works out. I'm very impressed by the amount of stuff happening on the screen without any slowdown or frame rate issues. Great programming here. The "wall walking" scenarios surprised me, and are very cool.
I'm about to start chapter 5.
2091  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Castlevania - Lords of Shadow on: October 26, 2010, 10:49:23 AM

It's a lot of fun though and really nails that whole fantasy vibe, I didn't play any of the previous castlevania games so I couldn't care less if it feels like a game of the franchise, all I know is that it's one of the best action adventures of this generation.
How is this possible? How long have you been gaming? You've never played a single Castlevania game? Wow.
Did you own a SNES? I can't imagine owning a SNES and never playing Super Castlevania IV. God, the music alone makes it a must play.
Perhaps you are younger than I thought you were...


I'm 30 years old and I've been gaming since the commodore 64, for 22 years to be more precise. I owned a megadrive/genesis during the 16 bit days, I dunno, it just never happened, it's not like I was avoiding them lol. I guess it's just impossible to keep up with everything. It's like when someone tells me they never played doom. I'm like "where the fuck were you in 1993?!" lol
I tend to forget that there are people out there who didn't own both consoles. Then again, there WAS an excellent iteration of Castlevania released for the Genesis. Bloodlines rocked.
I alos forget sometimes that Castlevania is not the triple AAA franchise that I have always viewed it as. Screw the Halos, Call of Dutys, and Fallouts. I want my Castlevanias and Metroids!
The sales so far of LoS show this is the case. The new Castlevania has sold just 130,000 copies between the PS3 and 360 while titles like Medal of Honor or FO:NV sell over a million in a couple days. WTF?


2092  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Fable III..... on: October 26, 2010, 10:36:34 AM
I don't get the fellow worried about spoilers. There isn't much to spoil in a Fable game, considering how poorly executed the stories are.
I enjoyed Fable II well enough, but no way am I paying $60 for III. Just like I did with II, I'll wait for it to drop to $30 and get it then.
Hopefully they've toned down the obnoxious npcs in this one. I got tired of women asking me to marry them over and over again. I suppose I could go the evil route, but I have a hard time doing that in games.
Is there a dog in this one? The dog rocked.

Dark Cloud 2 is fantastic! Play that.
2094  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: October 25, 2010, 02:24:34 PM
Labyrinth yesterday. Movie isn't as freaky as I remember but still is cool. Some interesting themes and visuals, plus it's basically a great film version of an RPG.

Family member on a quest to save a sibling. Gathers a party along the way, a dungeon crawl, party member betrayal and redemption, and everything sort of returning to normal at the end... OR DOES IT?!
The movie when I totally got a crush on Jennifer Connelly. I still have a thing for her, but she's a bit emaciated nowadays. Too bad.

2096  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Triggers and Crosses, the wonderful and horrible universe of the Chrono series. on: October 25, 2010, 09:26:06 AM
I remember liking Chrono Cross well enough when I played it. A couple things about it really bugged me, though. I could not stand Kid. Horrible character with a horrible name! I also hated the regular battle music. Because both of these things were quite prevalent in the game, it was nowhere near as good as it could have been.
Chrono Trigger was fantastic, and a much better game, IMHO.
2097  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Kirby's Epic Yarn on: October 24, 2010, 01:11:30 PM
I would totaly buy this for my kids... then play the hell out of it.
Bingo!
I told my wife that this would be a good buy for our son, but I totally want to play it, too. Looks like a lot of fun.
2098  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: I love when games let you keep playing after the final boss on: October 20, 2010, 01:53:39 PM
I don't have enough free time to care about post-game content.  I consider it an accomplishment if I even finish a game...
Exactly. Post game content? Funny.

And Prime, I'm pretty sure you just completely spoiled someones Other M game. Good thing I finished it last week, or I would be pretty pissed at you right now.
2099  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: its my birthday and no one cares on: October 19, 2010, 03:20:39 PM
Mine is next week too! The 29th.

Wow, I had actually forgotten until right now. :P And I'll be turning 20! I'm so old! ;)

Woah, mine is next week too.  But I'm older than all you kids ;)
Wanna bet?

Take this however you want, Josh, but you totally look like your 14 or something.
