Wow.  That...Was hilarious.  ...I think. XD  The weirdest part is that I thought of almost this exact same thing before.

You know what's great? Portal, I played that for the first time ever earlier this year, and I just fell in love with it. If you haven't played it seriously consider doing so.
I've played around half of it via the demo.  And a while ago I bought the game, but haven't really played it much.  Liked what I did play though.  Oh, by the way, same company, different game. 
Team Fortress 2.  Got the game a couple weeks ago and with the help of my brother have clocked like 25 hours, at least on it.  It's the kind of game that once you get it you forget about all other video games you own, and this is what you want to do all day.  In other words, it's great!  :D

Hmm.  I've only played a little bit of Symphonia.  However a close friend of mine is a huge fan of them.  I'll have to check if he knows.

Sooooo, anyone else here played Ace attorney investigations? Very Happy  I just beat it yesterday.  All in all I think I prefer the regular ace attorney system but this one still rocked.

I like it too - its fun to actually run around (anyone else wish the player had better control of how fast the text scrolls??  ARGH, gets annoying five titles later...!).
I do think, however, the sprite work (which, IMO is a real highlight of the series) reaaallly took a step back.  Kay looks awful in most sprites, let alone other characters.  Especially given how fabulous the Apollo Justice sprites looked.
Are you referring to their bigger sprites?  As a whole I though most of them were pretty good.  In more than one it seemed there was a lot of detail.  Especially in people like Detective Badd and Ambassador Alba.  It just seemed like they added details to them that they probably wouldn't have in earlier games.

Okay not sure if anyone already said anything about this, but here we go.  Pokemon Heart Gold.

I got the game yesterday and by now just beat the second gym leader.  Unless things take a major major drop from here on this game has been really really great.  Not only is it a, from what I can tell, well done remake of one of my favorite Pokemon games, (Unlike a certain side scrolling shooter  :x ) but it also seems that they've cleared up a lot of the problems with Diamond and Pearl.  For example the touch screen.  In Pearl you could use it for some things but not all.  So far the only thing I've found that you can't do with it is walk around.  And for me that's really handy since my A and L buttons both suck. 

So yeah, looking forward to continuing that.

Back when I was in 8th grade, I had this one teacher who believed that if the Earth got any warmer cause of global warming, the Dinosaurs would come back to life.
Holy bacon Mr. Munroe was right!

I downloaded Cave Story for the Wii on release day.  I'm still on my first playthrough, which I've decided to make a complete playthrough.  That is to say I'm taking all steps necessary to open up the secret Sanctuary level at the end of the game.  I forgot just how frustrating getting to the Sanctuary is, as it denies you so many useful weapons and items throughout most of the game.  The new soundtrack, though it took some getting used to, is superbly done, and I cannot complain about the graphics updates one bit.

Not sure how many others here have played it or are even interested, so I will leave off there.

Edit:  Oops!  Forgot to check the previous page.

#2: The new translation was stupid for 2 main reasons one being minor the other major.  The minor is they changed Grass town to Bush land.  Come on, seriously?!  The Major.  I'm still ticked about it.  Thay changed Balrog's awesome and classic "Huzzah!" to "Oh yeah!"  Yay we went from one of my favorite video game villains to the Kool-Aid man.  *Groan*

I do wish they hadn't gone the Kool-Aid Man route with Balrog.  Also, I think I noticed an unintentional grammatical error in the Physician's dialog.  The translation does leaves something to be desired.

#3: The sacred grounds speed run.  I suppose this is minor but it still bugs me.  Every time you die you have to pick up your guns, health, and they don't even give you the option to use the Machine gun, Snake, or Missile launcher.  Alone those would be bad, but together they're downright stupid.

At least you got there!  I'm still struggling in the Labyrinth.  Come to think of it, that may be due to the fact that I'm using the Wiimote instead of the Classic Controller...

I understand how fans of the original might not like the new soundtrack.  At first listen it seems to lack the energy of the original, but I came to appreciate its subtlety, especially in the Core Room before the beginning of the fight.  Such a haunting melody...
What items/weapons do you have to leave behind to get to the "sanctuary?"  Really the only thing you lose is you have to go without the booster for a while.

About the ...Okay I'm just gonna call it sacred grounds.  I was talking about the option you have to play it on the main menu.  Every single time you start or die you have to get your weapons and health while listening to the song every time you pick something up while they still leave out some of my favorite guns.

Soundtrack.  Well maybe it's just me, but in my view, if your gonna remix a soundtrack, especially if you get payed to do it you need to make it equal to or better than the original.  And the only songs that I've found that I believe are actually superior are the Sandzone song, Living water way, and when you get a Health upgrade.  There are probably others, but there are a heck of a lot of them that sound like they weren't even trying.  Just listen to the main Cave story theme.  It's pretty obvious which one has the better quality.  There are a few songs that aren't bad, but I just can't help but feel what was the point if they're not as good as the original. 

Maybe I'm being too critical being that I'm a big Cave story and cave story soundtrack fan, but it still urks me.

Alright, Cave story Wii was released today.  I heard, played, and saw enough to make a few conclusions. 
#1: The new soundtrack at least compared to the old one sucked unimaginably in about every way.

#2: The new translation was stupid for 2 main reasons one being minor the other major.  The minor is they changed Grass town to Bush land.  Come on, seriously?!  The Major.  I'm still ticked about it.  Thay changed Balrog's awesome and classic "Huzzah!" to "Oh yeah!"  Yay we went from one of my favorite video game villains to the Kool-Aid man.  *Groan*

#3: The sacred grounds speed run.  I suppose this is minor but it still bugs me.  Every time you die you have to pick up your guns, health, and they don't even give you the option to use the Machine gun, Snake, or Missile launcher.  Alone those would be bad, but together they're downright stupid. 

Now I do have to admit I'm glad they kept the over all controls right.  And the graphic improvements are good, but I can't see them very well, but I think that's just my TV.  But still, one new feature I do like is the Boss rush.  That thing they got right.  They made it easy, but it doesn't have to be easy, and it just had an overall well done feeling to it.  Unlike a good majority of the rest of the game. 

That's about all I got out of it.  As a whole, I kinda wish I hadn't payed $12 for it considering you can the original for free.

It's the entire crux of the anti-abortion argument in most cases. A fetus = a person, thus abortion = murder, heinous, immoral, and everything else. Utah just passed a bill to outlaw induced miscarriages and provide jail fines, based on the idea that it's "murdering" the unborn child. It's nasty territory.
Well whether or not it's a person is really what it does come down to.  Probably most people here would give the same answer of whether or not they would kill their newborn, and or Toddler just because they don't want them.  So it ultimately comes down to whether or not the fetus is a person or not.  Only problem is at least to my knowledge there isn't really a way to completely prove it either way.

Had kind of a stupid one earlier today.  I was talking to a sibling about Chrono cross characters and we got on the topic of Turnip.  Since he's very similar to Frog it got me thinking.  To get him you need to use the Ice breath from the Water dragon on the burnt part correct?  Been a while since I played that part. 

Okay so the breath from the water dragon cleaned a patch of dead soil, took probably a seed already in the ground and made it alive and be just like Frog.  So my my crazy theory is that the Water dragon is actually Frog.  It looks like a Frog, it uses water elements like frog, and it's breath makes more Frogs so maybe his condition over time got worse and he grew into the monstrosity on Water dragon isle. 

And yes.  I know the theory is stupid and full of contradictions.  This was just something I thought of randomly.  It is the crazy theory thread after all right?   :D

Beat Mega Man 10 earlier today. Definitely a good one.

Just got started on a Mega Man/Normal run.

And the reason you don't give Mega Man charge and slide, but you do for Protoman is to vary up the game play and give players some choice/replayability.
Than why not do the sensible thing and give Mega man the upgrades and make Protoman different.  That makes more sense character wise also being that he came first so we can only assume he wouldn't have as many upgrades especially being that he (At least according to the Power battle) won't let Dr. Light operate on him.

Woo! Mega Man 10 on monday! Anyone else excited?
Only if they do it right and give Megaman at least the slide.  The charge shot I'm fine without.  But the slide I want.  It's kind of become one of my pet peeves about the obsession with Megaman 2 and Capcom went way out of their way to make it obvious who they're trying to appeal too. 

Play as Protoman.
That's exactly what I mean.  They do it right with Protoman giving him a slide and even a charge shot.  If they're going to make it go back to Mega man 2 style at least make it universal for the game.  I mean if they gave it to him why did they bother not giving it to Mega man?
