Picked up Other M yesterday, and played for about an hour and a half. I just started Sector 1.
I actually haven't minded the cinema scenes. Even Samus' voice doesn't bother me like it seems to have done for others.
So far, the graphics are kinda weak, and nowhere near the Prime games. The music is almost non-existent. Hopefully, this changes the further I get in.
The control scheme is a little wonky, but pretty easy to get used to. Samus herself controls super smooth, and moves around a lot like she did in the old games. Actually, the game itself is very much a nostalgia trip. The look of Samus, the menus, etc.
I do not like the inclusion of the federation troops in the game. Adam Malkovich is particularly annoying. Samus taking orders from someone else just seems wrong.
The one boss battle was cool, and the general battles are well done. I AM liking it so far. Just need to play a bit more.

how easy it is to space pirate this game.

What the heck does this mean?

perhaps an Other M thread is in order...

I'm 35, and have come full circle from loving jrpgs and all their silliness, to barely being able to stomach it anymore. Good thing I no longer play games thinking I'm going to get anything deep or life-altering out of them. I just want to be entertained, and be respected by the developer. Poor writing and silly plot lines do not do this. Probably why I like the ME games so much. They actually respect the player as an intelligent human being.
Oddly enough, I'm liking FFXIII so far(5 hrs in). The story is stupid, but I've been roped in by the graphics, music, and great battle system.
Not an rpg, but reviews I've read of Other M say that the story stuff is not well done and brings down the whole experience. Way to go, Tecmo.

Whats with all the people playing Suikoden games? I remember quite enjoying the first 2, liking the third well enough despite the odd battle system, skipping over 4, then getting bored by 5. I'd like to try Tierkris(sp?) someday, but it's on a handheld.

FFXIII - I keep looking for a way to customize the parties actions. Outside of paradigms, this isn't possible, is it? I liked the gambits from XII. I like being able to control when someone heals, attacks, etc. Vanille constantly curing when she doesn't need to is annoying. Then again, there's no MP, is there? This game is weird.
I'm digging it, though.
I suppose I'll take a break to play MOM, but I look forward to getting back to it.

Finished uncharted 2 on crushing. I never did that on the first game but considering how tough it was on hard it's probably harder than 2, I'll have to give it a try some day.
The first game was hard enough on the supposed "easy" mode! You people are nuts.


Weren't you the one saying that uncharted needs lock on? You totally suck at shooters dude :-)
Yes, I did say that. And, Yes, I DO suck at shooters. I had the same problems with InFamous.
I read that the new Metroid has lock-on and breathed a sigh of relief.

It was damn hot out yesterday so I decided to spend some time with Final Fantasy XIII. That Lake Bresha area is Gorgeous! I'm also now getting to play around with Paradigms and such. Got my ass kicked by some boss three times in a row until I started using them right. The battles in this are frickin' intense. I'm only 4 hours in, but I'm enjoying it so far.

I don't have Facebook.

OK, but I would humbly suggest answering someone when they ask you a question. You could have PMed me back, "I don't have Facebook." and that would have been fine.
Anyway. Games...
Reviews so far for Other M are a bit more subdued than I had hoped. We'll see.

Anyway..

Muramasa is odd, but fun. I was expecting a full on action/rpg, not a game with staged battles. Still, it's been fun so far. The graphics are beautiful, if a bit repetitive.

HEY MESH! You don't check your PMs or what?

2108  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Super RPGFan Game Journal IV - The New Warriors: The Revenge The Movie The Game on: August 26, 2010, 10:54:59 AM
Played a bit more Mad World. made it to the cowboy boss at the end of area 2 and got my ass kicked.
Muramasa - What a beautiful game! Having fun with it so far. Making no sense of the story or characters, but that's not why I wanted to play this anyway.
My Wii is actually getting some action!

210.56 cups of iced tea.
I really don't consume much caffeine. Outside of iced tea, I'll drink a couple cups of coffee on the weekend. That's it. gave up pop awhile ago.

Ninja Assassin - This was totally fun. The movie is just a series of action set pieces with some boring stuff stuck in between. The story is NOT why I wanted to see this, and the filmmakers know that. Surprisingly bloody, too. I really enjoyed it.

That's damn good for chiptune music, anyway. I can't see myself actually listening to that outside of the game, though.
2112  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Super RPGFan Game Journal IV - The New Warriors: The Revenge The Movie The Game on: August 24, 2010, 11:54:52 AM
Block Buster online was selling new copies of Muramasa for $15 so I bought. Just showed up in the mail. Can't wait to play it.
I haven't touched FFXIII in a few days. oh well.

Metroid: other M - 1 week. Please be good.

Lawrence of Arabia - Movie dork that I am, I had never seen this until now. Damn, this thing was long. I watched it over two nights. It was quite epic, especially for a 60's movie. Beautifully filmed. I was(and remain) confused about Lawrence, though. Not at ALL was I was expecting. He's so....effeminate. Doesn't at all seem the leader type. Hard to believe all those Arabs would actually follow him. On the whole, I enjoyed the film, but it was far from perfect.
2114  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: August 20, 2010, 03:39:57 PM
The Punisdher - hahahahahahahahahaha. It sucked

The Wolfman - rather boring. Nice to look at, though

Can I have friends even though I don't like boobs? I mean, there is nothing wrong with them. I've probably seem more irl boobs than most guys my age. As all my female friends seem to think it doesn't make me uncomfortable when they change in front of me.
Sounds like I want to be your friend, too! I'll bring my invisibility cloak. It'll be our secret.
Of course, the wife might wonder where I'm off to all the time. I'll just say I'm going fishing or camping or something like that. She'll totally buy it because I haven't done either of those things in over 20 years!
