No, actually, it doesn't. I recall playing PS2 when it first came out. The game came with a full strategy guide and was STILL a total bitch and a half. Tough game that I have fond memories of. Amazing how nostalgia makes everything better.
Your best bet is just to skip all the way ahead to PS4. It's all the best of Phantasy star rolled into one(Minus the godawful last dungeon. but that's just my opinion(fact).
Still side-questing in Mass Effect. I really should go back to the main quest, but I am addicted to exploring random planets for long lost minerals. I really don't know why.

oooo, your in my territory now. The wife and I LOVE horror movies and have watched tons of them. Lots of bad ones. Lots of cheesy ones. Very few really good ones, sadly.  I'll mention a few I'd recommend.

Session 9 - I liked the slow burn of this one. good stuff
The Car - cheesy, yet oddly creepy as well
Teeth - cheesy but fun. Where do you think the teeth are?
Slither - fun and cheesy. reminded me of PJ s earlier movies like Dead Alive and Bad Taste. Which in turn reminds me mention The Frighteners. Totally overlooked when it came out.
The Host - Korean movie. a weird mix of a monster movie with a message.
Black Sheep - another goofy one. Killer freakin' sheep my man.

I may have to come back to this thread if I think of any more.
Have fun!

What would you guys like to see in a "neo-retro" style?  A neo-retro game being a game made in contemporary times, but made to look like / play like an old game.  Recent examples would be Mega Man 9 and Retro Game Challenge.

I'd like to see a new Phantasy Star game like this.  Just take Phantasy Star IV and spice that baby up!  Maybe clean up the graphics a bit, retain the gameplay elements, and definitely gloss up the cutscene panels.  One of my favorite things from PSIV were the comic book like cutscene panels.  Don't do FMV, don't have voice overs, just go with those comic like art boxes that just shoot up on the screen during important moments.  I don't even know if I've seen something so unique since.

I'd also like to see a new console Castlevania on the 360 or PS3 with widescreen support.  The DS games are great, but man, you could make an awesome looking 2D game with super HD graphics, wide screen support, huuuuuuuuuuge environments, massive bosses...  Man, Order of Ecclesia on a 40 inch HD telly?  I will kill stray cats for that.  And I love cats.

I'd also like another New Super Mario Bros.  (One that's a little harder.)


Exactly this minus the Mario Bros

Add in A Secret Of Mana with the art style of Legend of Mana, and I'd be happy.
Moral of the story:
2D in HD, please!

Went ahead and bought Castle Crashers. Fun game. My son(8 year old) and I were playing it together the other night and he was having a blast. Good times.

Mass Effect - I find myself going to random planets and driving around looking for stuff. I'm starting to wonder why everything looks the same, no matter which planet I go to. Still enjoying the game, regardless. I'll keep doing random stuff for a bit until going back to the main quest.

I'll bet the Narwhal with the biggest horn gets ALL the chicks. You know its true.
I wonder how often they accidentally stab each other with those things.

Lots of Mass Effect. I have my squad filled up now, so it's tough deciding who to use. I've been spending too much time doing the side stuff, running around the Citadel and such. I'm now on Noveria. Clock is a little over 16 hrs. I love how I can go several play sessions without ever shooting a gun, and still rack up experience. Makes total sense to me and I'd like to see more games(jrpgs?) do it.
Last night I downloaded the demos of Castle Crashers and Meteos wars. I like the old school arcade-ness of CC. I'll probably buy this.
I'm going to have to do the tutorial for Meteos because I had no idea what I was doing.
2467  Media / The Soundroom / Re: Joe Satriani is suing Coldplay for plagarism. on: February 09, 2009, 02:39:53 PM
I have never understood how you either have to be a fan of a band or not. I like numerous Coldplay songs, but I dislike even more. The first 2 albums bored me. X & Y has a lot of great songs on it. I have yet to purchase their new one due to that stupid Viva La Vida song.
I HATE generalizations. I do not like the band Coldplay, but I DO like 'Speed of Sound', 'Fix You', 'Clocks' and so forth.
Anyway...
I have a couple Satriani albums. Mostly boring stuff without any real "soul" to it
I have one Eric Johnson cd. Good stuff.
I shouldn't comment on the ever-present "metal" talk, but most anything beyond hard rock is unlistenable to me. I'd like to be able to understand what the singer is saying for one. Plus, I think it's great someone can play a guitar really fast, but it does nothing for me. I'll take a good melody any day. Perhaps I'm just lacking in metal knowledge.



2468  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: February 09, 2009, 01:56:35 PM
Saw 2 movies over the weekend

Igor - Talk about a let down. This looked as if it could have been fun and cool, but it was pretty much awful. so much potential squandered.

The Duchess - I kinda dig period movies like this, generally. Kiera was hot as always, although she still needs to spend more time at the buffet. Interesting story. Well done all around.

FWIW, my fave Pixar flick is The Incredibles. God, I love that movie. Wall-E up to when the first human speaks is #2.
2469  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Favorite Movie of 2008 on: February 06, 2009, 12:17:11 PM
I gave up on watching the Oscars years ago.
I really don't think DK deserves it, so I'm not bothered by its absence for best pic noms.
I'd like to see Kate get her statue, but that's only really because I have a thing for her.

This is just so stupid I decided to join in. It's actually quite difficult choosing from all the cheese.
I was trying to find a "darker" romance cover to go with my persona, but I guess people are not into reaper romance. *sigh*

Mass Effect - Looking at all the places to go on the galaxy map was overwhelming at first. Then I realized a lot of these places are not even accessible(at least not yet). I finished up Feros, did some other random planet thing, and am now trying to follow a story mission again. Something in the artemis tau cluster. Before playing I read a lot of complaints about the rover. It bugged me the first time I used it, but I'm getting used to it now and kinda like it. I want one of these in the real world.
2472  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Are you overwhelmed by your backlog? on: February 02, 2009, 02:47:26 PM
I wasn't too bad off until I got a 360. Now I have PS2 and DS games just sitting there. In general I play one game at a time. That one game can take me literally months to play through. I wish I had somewhere to play the DS. When I'm at home I prefer to play console games. The poor DS gets ignored.
RPGs or otherwise:

PS2:
Xenosaga 3 ( I REALLY want to get back to this)

DS:
FFIV
Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin
Rocket Slime
Phantom Hourglass(gave up due to it sucking)
Shining Force: ROTDD
-plus numerous games I still want to buy like all the castlevanias, and numerous other rpgs I've heard are good.

360:
Mass Effect(currently playing)
Lost Odyssey
Gears of War
-plus numerous games I still want to buy like Tales of Vesperia, Fable II, prince of persia, etc.

Plus I still want to get a PS3. MGS4, Valkyria, God of War3, among others, are my justification.

I suppose I'm cheating by adding in games not bought yet, but the pull is still there.

2473  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Super Game Journal Turbo II - The New Challengers on: January 27, 2009, 02:18:29 PM
Playing Mass Effect. I've been on Feros solving misc. problems. I went through the Exo-geni building and am now heading back to Zhus Hope to deal with this Thorian thingamabob. I continue to like this game, despite it being the opposite of what I've always liked in rpgs. Maybe I was just ready for something different.
2474  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Game franchise on: January 26, 2009, 02:07:31 PM
MGS4 is really pulling at me to get a PS3. I won't even consider it until it gets down to $300 or lower, though.
If FFXIII wasn't coming out for the 360 I would buy the PS3 to get it, factoring in the above statement.

A new Skies or a new "real" Phantasy Star might be able to single-handedly convince me to buy a system.
I guess I'm just easy.
2475  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Favorite Movie of 2008 on: January 14, 2009, 11:18:29 AM
Back when I saw TDK in the theater I would have said that. But after seeing Iron Man, and watching TDK again on dvd, I realized I liked IM more. So thats my #1. TDK #2
Wall-E was great, but some of the latter scenes bring it down a notch. #3
I wish I saw more movies so I could have a proper list.
