2146  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan's influence on your gaming life on: October 18, 2010, 09:46:52 AM
As I don't visit many gaming sites besides this one, it IS influential. To be honest, though, I read LOTS of reviews of a game I'm interested in. No way would I trust just one review, even from here. I've gotten to know the tastes of the different people here, and several do not jive with mine.
The boards are actually more important to me,than the site itself. I've learned about all sorts of games that I didn't even know existed, rpg or not.
Plus, I just love discussing things with like minded people. This is the only gaming forum I participate in. Heck, I've been around for a LONG time now(since around the inception or shortly thereafter). It can't help but be influential, if only in a small way.

I started up Bayonetta. I had played the demo a couple times, but holy cow was that tame compared to the real deal. I imagine they didn't want to scare people away. This game is completely ridiculous. I just want to fight and beat the crap out of monsters, but it keeps injecting silly story scenes and such. WTF is up with the Joe Pesci wannabe? I hope the music improves(changes?), too, as I don't like it at ALL.

The music in PS III was a total downgrade from the first two games. Heck, even the graphics looked "odd" compared to 2.
Good thing IV fixed all this.
except for the final dungeon. ugh

Thanks a ton, guys!
We've got a DS that plays GBA games, so it doesn't matter either way. He's also not picky about graphics. He's played through the Mario Galaxy games, Loved Metroid Zero Mission, and is now playing Super Mario World.
He can get by with just one game, right? It seems like they always seem to be released in pairs. Why is that?

Ok, so he sees some other kids at school playing with Pokemon cards and decides he wants some. Fine.
I thought I would get him one of the video games, too, but there are so many.
Where should someone who is new to Pokemon start?

You guys mentioning Bill Cosby are spot on. His stuff about parenting is damn funny because it's so true.
2152  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Super RPGFan Game Journal IV - The New Warriors: The Revenge The Movie The Game on: October 16, 2010, 09:35:35 AM
OK, so NOW I'm done with Other M. Played for about 15 hours. Epilogue included
Took me numerous tries to beat that giant...whatever it was. And all that was just for a freakin' helmet?! Samus = softy
My item % was only 41%! Ugh. I would actually continue on to see how high I could get that # if I didn't have other games I want to play.

Carlin is/was awesome. His humor is just as relevant today as it ever was. Especially his religious diatribes.
I like Lewis Black, but the "yelling all the time" shtick is getting a bit old.
Steven Wright  is great.
Seinfeld is still doing his thing, and totally funny.
I don't normally like people who do impressions, but that one dude is awesome. Hmm, what's his name?
*searches the googleweb*
Frank Caliendo! He's funny. And damn talented.

Metroid: Other M is finished(sort if). I may mess around a bit to see what I can find.
I actually really liked it, despite some major flaws. I was fine with Samus, but everyone and everything else I didn't like so much. The story really got ridiculous at the end there.
While the environmental sounds/music were OK, I still wish it had a "real" soundtrack.
The gameplay was pretty darn good, and most of the boss battles were well done.

I'll probably start up Bayonetta and play that until I get LoS for my birthday.

BTW, my son finished Zero Mission. He loved it. I'll get him playing some of the other Metroid games, but for now he wants to play Super Mario World. I'll DL it on the Wii, assuming it's available.
2155  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Fallout NV vs Fable 3 on: October 11, 2010, 03:42:38 PM
Fable I was just OK.
Fable II was a ton better, with a great battle system. I had a lot of fun with it, despite the horrible ending and obnoxious npcs.
Despite all the hype(there's that word again) over fallout 3 around here I have yet to play it. Looks complicated and depressing.
Personally, I'm not getting either one anytime soon. Too many other games to play still.

Climbed a mountain and saw three waterfalls in the Sumatran rainforest yesterday. Good times.
With this, you win the thread.

Other M - I fought the super secret boss
in the vicinity of 20 times. It just moves so damn fast that it took me awhile to figure it all out. I finally beat it, and am now...um...somewhere else.

I like this game, but damn do I want to play LoS. 19 days til my birthday. I'll be alright.

2158  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Why isn't the DS getting more RPGs on: October 08, 2010, 09:49:53 AM
you all are ripping on my main guy Thoren. Is this just?

I don't even think he's been mentioned a good number of posts.
Aside from touching himself - but I believe we're all liable to that, and therefore, if Prime is correct, we are all responsible for lack of RPGs on any console.

...and dead kittens.

2159  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Alundra and Arc the Lad coming to PSN on 10.12.2010 on: October 08, 2010, 09:46:00 AM
I played Alundra briefly back when it came out. I don't remember why, but it didn't work for me.
I've always wanted to play the Arc games. Hmmm...
2160  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Pat's editorial - I Don't Have The Patience For This! (Anymore) on: October 07, 2010, 06:57:32 PM
I played it when it came out on the SNES.  That shouldn't be unusual, I think it sold pretty well.  And I've always seen emulators as a pretty fringe thing.
Same here. I really don't get the emulator comment. I thought pretty much everyone who wanted to play it, played it on the SNES. Then there was the PS release. Then the more recent DS release. Interesting.
Terranigma, on the other hand...
