Dammit, Boo, I'm jealous. I somehow lost that game a couple years back and I got pretty far and wanted to beat it. I love me my strategy games.

Not doing much lately... just yahoo cards games (love Spades these days) and the old Zeldas.

I got it for about $10 off Ebay. Great buy. I was not expecting it to be this good. Graphics, gameplay... It's all pretty solid. Storyline is about as thin as Final Fantasy XII's, so I can't complain. Nothing new for Ivalice! I highly recommend it, though!

Wow, so has anyone played Metroid: Other M yet? I won't be able to since I don't have a Wii, but I'm reading a lot of forum chatter about how Team Ninja completely ruined Samus' character in the minds of a lot of fans. Any Metroid fans here want to give their take?

Haven't played it yet (it just came out today, and I'm not even in the country) but I'm pretty apprehensive about the whole story aspect. The general impression I've gotten from reviews is that it's a decent game, but disappointing for a Metroid title. If the story sucks, though, Team Ninja isn't to blame - the story was handled entirely by Yoshio Sakamoto. It was also his stubborn insistence that led to the game being controlled entirely with a single Wii remote instead of the more logical remote-and-Nunchuk combo, which seems to be the other major sticking point in nearly every review. I have a feeling Nintendo may come to regret granting him protection from editors if the fallout from this game is sufficiently bad.

I think the major problem is that for so many years, Metroid fans have had this certain idea of who Samus should be, and a lot are pissed and butthurt that the reality doesn't match their percieved vision. However, if you don't let that bother you, then things should be alright. Besides, these whiners are mostly going off of a G4 review.

Yeah. :P

Metroid: Other M
(I'm even more excited about Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep, though.)

I recommend you to use install and switch the overclock to 333mhz

Looks like fans prefer good storyline along with quick non-repetitive fun in their games. Of course, good voice actors too. Graphics don't matter to that extent so long as they enjoy playing it. XD Whoever said good games don't require good story is a blockhead.

Also, it seems Wii and DS have more buyers than PS3/360.

Birth by Sleep is a prequel to the original Kingdom Hearts. To my knowledge, KH3 is not currently in development, although with the series being the cash cow that it is, it's likely to come out at some point.

The secret ending of Birth By Sleep sets up the events for Kingdom Hearts 3, as Kingdom Hearts games tend to do. Kingdom Hearts 3 hasn't been officially announced, but it's going to be made. I could give spoilers, but I won't. Unless you ask.

You can say they can't do it anytime soon, the team behind KH games works on Final Fantasy now and they are taking their time with it apparently because stuff like World map, airship, day and night cycle, actual fields and so on are Built from Scratch.

Some game mods are weird. o_o Street Fighter 4 Fan-Mod features changing Dhalsim into a Yoga-Kung Fu Gandhi!

I bet poor Mohandas is turning in his grave now... Even though he's totally badass looking in the mod.  :lol:


EDIT: It's not just Gandhi. There's Doraemon, Mr T, God of War, etc.

I've been really impressed with the quality of KH:BBS, seeing as how it's a PSP game. I heard it had horrible load times and complaints concerning the "install feature" (in which you install data onto the PSP in order to decrease on the load times); so far it's been super fun!
