Re: We should have a "random ****" thread in this forum imo

Does anyone know where you can get PS1 games? I checked EB, GameStop, etc. online and they only sell PS2 and PS3 games. I would like to buy FF7 for the nostalgia, but people are selling it on ebay for $50+.

Serious question: Is Viva Pinata worth renting? Obviously some will like it and some won't, but what's the general concensus among those that have played it?

Re: We should have a "random ****" thread in this forum imo

goofy, if you want to play both ocarina and twilight princess, definitely play OoT first. it will feel dated after you play twilight princess, but it remains the best game i've ever played. twilight is much more refined and modern, and is still a great game, but it essentially updates OoT.

if you only want to play one of them, then i'd play twilight princess. it'll be more fun. it's also easier than OoT (or maybe that's just because i was younger when i played OoT?)

Re: We should have a "random ****" thread in this forum imo

A while ago my dog ate my nunchuk. That was fine, I had two. I bought another sometime in December.

My dog has once again taught me not to leave my **** on the floor.

Unfortunately, I never opened the other chuk and can't find it anywhere. To make things worse, they are fresh out of nunchuks at the local Target, Best Buy (two different stores), and Circuit City.

No Mario, Metroid, or Strikers for me. Was thinking of picking up No More Heroes because the reviews are good. Guess that'll have to wait as well.

Re: We should have a "random ****" thread in this forum imo

I've been trying to play NFL Gameday '97 for PS1, and I can't win a game even on the easiest difficulty level. Earlier games like Madden '95 were cake and I went undefeated on the hardest level, but this...

What kind of plays are standard to be calling? Especially on defense, I'm just guessing.

I owned VP and it was fun, however gameplay did get a bit repetitive at times, still worth renting though imo. You'll like it a lot if you're into management type games.

So Wiitracker shows that Sears.com has the Wii. I go to the Sears.com site and it says the Wii is in stock. I add to the Cart and I get an out of stock message. Might I be able to go to a Sears store and find it there?

Sorry I wasn't clear in my other post. I did call the nearest Sears and they didn't have any.

I was wondering if anyone had any generalizations about the correlation between the website having stock and the stores having stock. The guy on the phone wasn't very helpful, just saying they didn't have any and did not know when they would get any more. He didn't know anything about the web site.

Awesome game. If you like this try out Everyday Shooter. Same sort of idea, but all the sound FX are guitar riffs. Pretty sweet idea.

Re: We should have a "random ****" thread in this forum imo

I'm thinking about getting a PS3 pretty soon now that I have a 58" 1080p plasma so I can watch Blu-Ray. What PS3-exclusive games should I get? I'm thinking Resistance, Ratchet & Clank, Uncharted, and maybe UT3. Am I missing anything good? Is Warhawk cool?

Re: We should have a "random ****" thread in this forum imo

Initial impressions:
Blu-Ray is hot (watched Black Hawk Down tonight)
The analog sticks on the controller kinda have a dead spot compared to the 360 controllers which is a bit annoying; playing Resistance, it's harder to move the stick juuuust slightly so I can nail the small piece of that dude's head sticking out.
Resistance: This is more a commentary on the game than the PS3, but the level design seems a little bland so far. Compared to CoD4, the environment is really lacking in the detail that makes it come alive. Also, the colors are a little too bright as if I'm having a picnic outside - I mean, wtf, mankind is doomed, make it dark and cloudy or something.

Oh, and I assume some ****ing jerk took "goofyballer" on PSN because it wouldn't let me use that as my online name (although it wouldn't say why, just "cannot use that user id"). So, ImInUrFridge it is.

Re: We should have a "random ****" thread in this forum imo

goofy, some other suggestions would be Ninja Gaiden if you haven't played it before. Rent Lair as it got some bad flak and definitely worth at least a rental. Resistance gets much 'darker' and the SP levels are much better toward the end of the game and the multiplayer is unique for 40 man FFA's. UT3 is awesome w/ mods, and there are about 15-20 of them out now. Lego Star Wars is fun if you don't have it for the 360. I hear Warhawk is awesome, though I don't have it. Ratchet & Clank and Uncharted are probably the two best games on the PS3. There are some great arcade games too like Super Stardust HD, Everyday Shooter, High Velocity Bowling (like wii bowling), Super Puzzle Fighter and lots of others I haven't tried. AceLuby if you feel like adding me.
