2131  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?

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.

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.

2136  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.
2137  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.

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.

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.

got around to seeing 500 Days of Summer. For the most part a good movie for it's genre, but still has some heavy-handed writing. Her name was AUTUMN? PAAAAHLEASE

The point is: that movie has the HAPPIEST ending ever.... Autumn is hotter than Summer, and thats a lesson to take home with you.

I loved that movie. Zooey is freakin' adorable. Plus, I totally sympathized with the guys(I forget his name) situation, as I was in a similar one awhile back.

Happy Birthday, man. You definitely "contribute" to the boards.
Mine's next week. It's never a big thing, and that's OK with me. My wife and son do stuff for me, and everyone else either forgets or doesn't care.
I remember when the boards used to list everyone's birthday at the bottom. I wonder why that stopped. Someone not like it? Or it was just a wasted line on the page? Hmmm.

Gorgeous backyard garden, Grim!!  Must be nice to come home that and and then follow it, probably literally, with a 'home sweet home'. =)
I'd kill for a nice backyard, I think it'll be the only way to counter my hate for bugs is a pretty place for them. ;P
Love your pooch too,  I want him.  Wanna switch pooches?
Thanks! Gardening is my true #1 hobby. Truth be told, it's more a way of life than a hobby. I can disappear out there for hours on end. It truly is my sanctuary.
Bugs are fascinating when you take the time to learn about them. I get so many different types of critters in my yard that I pretty much HAD to study up on them. I still hate mosquitoes, though.

What kind of dog am I switching for? One of those little purse dogs? Vlad(The Impaler!) would eat it for breakfast. Plus, Nan would be pissed if I traded off the dog.

I haven't posted up a pic in awhile so here goes.
A picture I took of myself with the timer on the camera. I'm sure I looked like an idiot to anyone walking by as I set up the camera, pressed the button, then ran to my chair and posed. I did it several times to see what I could get. I took this in my garden. It looks fantastic in the Fall(and always, IMHO).


This right here is a picture of the Best. Dog. Evar. His name is Vlad, and he rocks.

You people HAD to mention GIA. I loved that site, and the forums over there. Good times. Like a lot of others, I kept checking over and over to see if they would come back. I was quite bummed.
