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

I played Ninja Gaiden on Xbox and was kinda meh on it, I'm not a big fan of slasher-type games (I liked Prince of Persia a lot but it was more puzzle-oriented and not as much button-mashing, I think). I was going to get Uncharted but read that it's short - is it a better rental than purchase? I feel retarded when I buy a game, play through it in 8 hours, and never touch it again.

Also, I think my problem with Resistance is that its graphical style reminds me a ton of TF2, except that TF2 is a completely non-serious game without a single-player game. I'll still play it through to the end though. I hopped online for 2 minutes and a.) got destroyed but I'm new so w/e, and also the server had one-hit kills set to "on" b.) kinda miss Xbox Live's matchmaking as opposed to going back to PC-style server browsing.

Wtf at ninja gaiden being button mashing. That game is so hard that if you just mash buttons you won't even beat the first level.

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

Well, if you just mash buttons in Street Fighter you'll get your ass beat too, but I would still qualify it as a "button mashing" game because even if there's a method to the manner in which you press lots of buttons in a short period of time, you are still mashing a large number of buttons.

Enjoy.

One of the most glowing reviews I've seen from him. For some reason it makes me happy that even he got some enjoyment out of CoD4.

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

some wii reviews:

trauma center - new blood: well worth a rent. interesting concept with the surgeries, and pretty well put together. not sure if the second one is better...
elebits: alright, but controls will put you on tilt so fast. wouldn't recommend it unless you have a g/f that likes playing games.
big brain academy: fun for a little while, but loses its flavour pretty quickly. still worth a rent though.
super mario galaxy: I love the game, but there is little to no replay value. a 5 day rental would be perfect for it.

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

X-Com question.

I just downloaded this game for DOS. I played it for a few hours last night. It seems like I could get really into it.

I'm wondering, is the whole game: UFOs come down, you intercept them, you kill aliens at the crash site? If so, it seems like once I build lots of bases, I'll have to intercept tons of UFOs per day and the game will just completely slow down.

You might like Warioware wii. It's this goofy collection of micro-games. The main problem most people have with it is that it's pretty short, but that doesn't sound like something you are concerned about.

I hated it. It's mainly aimed at little kids - which is fine sometimes, but the narrator uses this super-happy, emphasize every word, fairy tale voice that makes me want to tear my eyes out every time I hear it. On top of that, the writing is really bad and super wordy, so every time you get a new message it takes like 10 minutes for this dumb chick to read the whole thing to you.

Oh, and the gameplay mostly seems to involve getting little pinata worms to mate so you can watch this stupid cut-scene of the worms doing the "love tango" or whatever the **** they call it.

I'm getting pissed off just thinking about this stupid game (note that I was basically forced to play it for 30 minutes or so - it's a long story).

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

Just saw that Vigilante 8 is coming to XBLA!

I spent may hours during the winter hanging out at my friend's blowing the crap out of each other cars. I am really looking forward to this game, and online play

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

This could be interesting. Microsoft has apparently experienced greater than expected demand for the 360 leading to a reduced supply and are expecting worse sales numbers as such. This is coming out a day before the official sales numbers come out. Legitimate comments or preemptive damage control. The numbers tommorow could be pretty interesting!

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

Is Vigilante similar to Interstate '76? Because I ****ing loved that game and just the other day was thinking "man, they should make a newer version of that."

Vehicular combat games are awesome and there aren't enough of them. Also reminds me of Deathtrack and MegaRace, two super old-school DOS games I played when I was a little kid that were ****loads of fun but you hardly see anymore (last one I can think of was Wipeout) - these are racing games (as opposed to open-world games with cars) with weapons on the cars. DeathTrack was by far the best on the weapon front - none of this "fly your little Wipeout racer thing over a missile icon and shoot the dude in front of you", you could fit your car with a machine gun or lay mines on the track. MINES ON THE ****ING TRACK!!!

Man, that got me nostalgic.

Interstate 76 was the ****, used to be such an awesome game and my 12 year old self would get super frustrated trying to play online on a crappy 28.8 modem.

Also WTF with Red Alert 3, KOTOR 3, Mass Effect PC, etc. I'm not going to leave the house for like the next 2 years.

I don't know about you, but that would be my life with or without those games.

For some reason I never played Interstate '76. Not sure why, I remember the ads and reviews. So I looked up V-8 and it says that it was a spinoff from I-76.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vigilante_8

It also was like Twisted Metal, but imo way better. Different weapons you could pick up and each had 2 'specials' you could do with button combos. Also each vehicle had a special unique weapon that you could pick up.

I always liked the 'open world' concept of car fighting games, as opposed to ones that restrict you to a track. Just provides many more opportunities to f your buddy

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

Yea but Twisted Metal had the whole scary clown thing going for it, no? And in the first one wasn't it just a plain old scary ice cream truck crown, but then in the sequel there was that same guy but then like a REALLY dark and scary clown after that? Sweet Tooth and Dark Tooth or something.

Is it worth playing them for the clowns?

And when I nail him in the head they'll obviously blame my excellent aim on all the practice I've had pistoling bitches with Last Stand.
