Random urls rock.  Just... don't look them up at work. :D

...Well, I beat Portal. :P  I knew it was short, but I had no idea I was ten minutes away from the end when I stopped.

I swear, if this game was twice as long as it is, I think people twenty years from now would be talking about it with the same reverence people give Pac-Man and Super Mario Brothers.


Portal is seriously made of pure awesome.  I was sad about the length too, but felt like the last level kind of made up for it.  Did you get it on PC?  Because if so, I've heard about downloadable levels and using the console to put the portal gun into Half-Life 2...


Edit: what Eusis said is definitely true about games that feel padded.  I just played Super Paper Mario, and as great as that game was, there were two or three places where it felt like they just threw crap in there to pad out the length.  Definitely annoying.

I suppose Pokemon or one of its better imitators could be my one game.


On that note, despite my choice of Diablo 2, I will admit that I actually maxed out the playtime clock in Pokemon Red... at 256 hours. :)

I believe the key is to play with others.  Play by yourself, and there's too much going on.  Play with friends, and you can cooperate to take down the baddies together.

(At least that's my guess... I haven't played with anyone.)

Check me out!  I crushed what could have been an interesting thread on "what one game would you take to a desert island, assuming you had the hardware to run it, and it would work forever?"

I'd choose Diablo II (with the expansion). :)

Alternating between two games that hate me, but want me to love them: Monster Hunter Freedom and the new Pokemon Mystery Dungeon. :)  When I need a break from that, still playing the Mythos beta.

I definitely understand what he's saying there, but it ignores the economic reality of the situation.  Sony and Microsoft lose money on every single PS3 and 360 they sell.  I'm not sure about the handhelds, and I know Nintendo actually makes money on Wii hardware, but still...

Sony and MS can only hope to make video games a viable business model by making a ton of money on games.  How best to do that?  Sell a ton of games to a ton of people.  If you sell less games, you make less money.  If they were to make only games that they expected you to play for hundreds of hours (like so many of us have from time to time) and still make money, they'd have to charge a lot more for each game, and I don't think the market supports that.

Besides, as much as I love the games I've put a ton of time into, they're like a banquet, and sometimes all you really want is a snack. :)

(Holy cow - I actually sounded like I knew what I was talking about there...)

I could have sworn there already was a DC vs. Capcom.


Are you maybe thinking of Marvel vs. Capcom?
2410  Media / Miscellaneous Games / MK vs DC......FIGHT! on: April 18, 2008, 03:59:17 PM
Score.  I don't play a ton of fighting games, but I'd buy that!

Holy cow - sounds like you and yours made it through just fine, though, and that's good news.  I have a friend or two from that area - will have to check in with them...

The Record of Lodoss War RPG for Dreamcast was pretty sweet...


Haha - I actually have that game!  I couldn't play it, though, because it's entirely in Japanese, and I can't read Japanese. :(

Recently purchased Best of College A Capella 2007


How is it?  I love a capella stuff.

Was at a thrift store today and ran across the They Might Be Giants' CD Flood (one of my favorite albums ever - there's some nostalgia there), so I bought it.  It was just $2!

Nearby, also for $2, I saw a CD I knew y'all would kill me if I didn't buy: the two-disc Final Fantasy I and II soundtrack!  Haven't listened to it yet, but I'm sure it's cool.

Hilarious... and kudos to them for having the stones to admit that someone on their site got caught doing the same thing before.
