You keep talking about this Anachronox game. Perhaps I should hunt down a copy.
I liked Xenosaga I, for the most part. Never played 2. I started playing 3, but then got lured away by the next generation. I should go back to it, as I liked what I played.

I remember devoting ridiculous amounts of time to this game when I played it. I studied that damn guide book in between play sessions. Back then, I freakin loved it. It was hard, but I was happy to indulge.
It is entirely unplayable now. I no longer have the patience or the time for such monsters.
I still love the setting, though, and wish someone would do a futuristic jrpg RIGHT(note the j, please).
The game had some good tunes that I can still hum to this day. loved the Dezoris song and the battle theme. Heck, the opening theme(to any PS game) gets me crazy nostalgiac.
I agree with the others, though. PSIV is where its at. *mumbles something about the last level*

Playing Fable II - trying to earn money so I can buy a shop or something to get the big money rollin' in. I can chop wood like a mofo! The fast paced fighting in this really kicks ass. Makes me feel like a total badass. Run up to a group of enemies, do a force push spell to knock them all over the place, roll over and slash one, then get up and blast another with the gun. Good stuff.
Too bad the town stuff is kinda boring, and too much like the first Fable. I just want to be out adventuring. Anyway...I think I'm supposed to be escorting someone somewhere.

Bought World of Goo for the Wii. Thought my wife would like it. Cool game with surprisingly great music. Disappointed in the lack of a competitive 2 player mode, though. Cooperative is no fun.
Thinking about getting FFIV: TAY. Considering how much of a goober I am for the original, I kinda HAVE to.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang - Good, fun movie. I liked it a lot.

Drag Me to Hell - I thought it was decent, but certainly not as amazing as everyone was making it out to be. Pretty basic horror film, really. Maybe I've just seen too many damn horror movies.

edit: oh yeah...I continue to watch BSG as well. I'm on season 3 now. Waiting for disc 2 to show up.

I quite liked LoI, especially the music.Still, it just didn't feel right. the levels felt empty and repetitive, with a lack of scope. Its like no one knows how to translate Castlevania into 3D. What I see in this video is the closest its come to what it should look like(and play) like.
2391  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Castlevania - Lords of Shadow on: June 04, 2009, 01:14:09 PM
wow, this came out of nowhere. That damn trailer gave me shivers. It looks fantastic. I agree that it looks like a retro-fitted castlevania game, but that doesn't take away that it looks to be a great game.
 
2392  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Project "TrIco" trailer leaked early. on: June 03, 2009, 09:19:15 AM
but damn, is that thing ugly or what?  Based on the greatness of their previous games, I'm sure this will be great, but "Dear god, what is that THING?!" (movie reference?)
It almost looks a bit TOO similar to ICO or SOTC.

I don't get the "other M" bit in the title, but I'm still damn excited about a 3rd person Metroid.
and that's about it.
I own the first Golden Sun but barely played it. The weird speech talk noise put me off initially and I never went back.
Don't carer about anything else. Big surprise.

SOTN - Finally made it to the inverted castle...then lost the will to keep playing.
Started up Fable II. Loving it so far. Graphics are beautiful(minus the pop-in), the fighting is fast and fun, and the dog rocks. This is good stuff, and I imagine I'll be playing it for awhile.

thanks for that. I see now that I just need to bust that bridge to carry on. Thanks!

SOTN - soooooo I'm done? I went to the top of the castle and ended up fighting and beating Richter. Then sat stunned as the credits rolled by and the game ended. Wha? I figured I was only halfway done. Where's this friggin' inverted castle I've heard so much about? I just assumed it was part of the main quest, not something you had to unlock. I ended up with 80% Do you need 100% to get the inverted castle? There were a couple areas I couldn't open/get to. I guess I'll have to check a FAQ, but I'm kinda pissed.
ie:
-a long room on the far left of the map lined with spikes that you have to fly through as the bat, with some glowing door at the end of it. I couldn't figure out how to open the door.
-a wall in the underground that the fairy says looks suspicious but I can't seem to do anything to it.
-In the "gear" area there is a wall opening shown on the map but I can't go through it on the game screen.

ugh. I wasn't ready to be done with this yet. Plus Richter was a pathetic end boss. I'll assume that the inverted castle has the "real" boss aka Dracula? If that is the case you shouldn't have to get a perfect game to open it. It should just be part of the normal game.

<--would like some cheese with his whine

edit: OK, so I just read through some FAQS. Damn, I missed a lot. And there's no way I would have found out some of that stuff without reading an FAQ. What the hells the point of playing a game if you have to stare at a cheat guide the whole time? Hitting gears a certain # of times to open a door? How would I have known that? Any room that has medusa heads I'm just trying to get the fuck out of, not run around hitting gears.

I'm pretty sure I have a wolf shirt like that one. I don't recall getting any extra female attention when I wore it. It must be that specific shirt that works the magic. Funny stuff.

FISH FOUND IN BOY'S PENIS

The patient was admitted to hospital with complaints of pain, dribbling urine and acute urinary retention spanning a 24-hour period. According to the boy, the fish slipped into his penis while he was cleaning his aquarium at home.

Professor Vezhaventhan and Professor Jeyaraman, who treated the boy and later wrote a paper on the case, explained: "While he was cleaning the fish tank in his house, he was holding a fish in his hand and went to the toilet for passing urine. When he was passing urine, the fish slipped from his hand and entered his urethra and then he developed all these symptoms."

After detecting the fish in the boy's bladder, Vezhaventhan and Jeyaraman used a technique known as cystourethroscopy to insert a special set of forceps down the patient's penis. Unfortunately, the fish was just too slippery to grip, so they resorted to using a rigid ureteroscope with a tool attached that is normally used for removing bladder stones.

The fish the urologists removed, which Practical Fishkeeping believes to be a small member of the Betta genus, measured 2cm long and 1.5cm wide.

He was later admitted into counseling to help him overcome any trauma.

Wait? The FISH was admitted into counseling? Cause that's how that reads. They don't say how old the boy is, but I'm thinking he had to have one hell of a urethra to catch a fish.
This story smells...um....yeah.

Most nerve wracking game ever.
Somewhere between the hand in a toilet, the moon, and the constant clock made the game...quite frankly, not fun.

Bingo! I DO NOT like being under a time limit/time constraints. This game didn't work for me at all, although I can see why others may like it.

SOTN - I'm coming to realize why this game is so revered. It truly is fantastic. There is a lot more to it than I expected. I didn't know there would be familiars, let alone so many damn things to find and collect. I was so excited when I got my bat form so I could explore all the dark corners. Which is basically what I am doing now. I do think its odd that you can't sell off your old weapons/armor. The menu gets awfully cluttered.
Heck, I think the game still looks pretty good, plus the music is great. Just a perfectly put together game.
