  1. Nobody here played Gekido: Kintaro's Revenge on GBA? I thought it had a good feel to it, but the cacky key collecting puzzly bits let it down. Satisfying moves though.
  2. Both dreadful. My gf hates the two camp men in Hyrule Square in OoT. I love 'em!
  3. You. Outside now! My vote goes to Slippy Toad. The cunt.
  4. That's hardly a fair criticism of the game. I'm totally prepared to accept people can like and dislike a game but to say "in years to come it'll, er, not look or play as good" is stretching the point a fair bit. Fair point, although my problem with Halo is that it had dated on release. As I've said, I feel its stuck in a sort of "still reading superhero comics" timewarp graphically and artistically. (The people I know that like it actually like it partly for that reason). One which meant it had dated before it had released. As a game I also feel it doesn't have the distilled greatness of the finer examples of games this generation (if that makes sense). At the end of the day, I'm not part of its target audience, who it obviously satisfies. (To anyone doubting my view on this, watch the Bungie interviews, and just look at the staff, and to what they obviously aspire). But the relentless insistence by said target audience that it is in fact the best game ever is quite ridiculous. Rather like someone taking some of the aforementioned superhero comics and holding them up as fine examples of modern art. I take your point stylistically. It's still Space Marines, after all. But then, it's a Sci-fi shooting game, so I'm not sure what you were expecting. Playability wise it's unsurpassed by any FPS.
  5. Doom is still a good game. Duh. Yeah, it hasn't dated at all. Not even graphically, in my opinion. I still really like the style of the game. Doom is a classic, like Asteroids, like Tempest. It'll always be a good, 100% playable game. As will Halo.
  6. I might have to play a special 2-player game of Boxing Chump with him. a) I hate clowns b ) The guy was hovering around the Eye Toy room, making snidey comments and getting jealous becasue no-one wanted to see his balloon tricks.
  7. I'd forgotten how much fun this is. Basically, every year my firm has a Xmas part for all the employees' children. They've got food, music, presents given out by Santa, a bouncy castle, a ball pool, a clown (who is rightly being ignored) and the Eye Toy, brought in by me. And they're loving it. And the adults are loving it. It's all "Me next!" and "My go!" and "Get the robot Daddy!". Great stuff. I feel all Christmassy now.
  8. Worth it even if it was £99.99. Buy, buy!
  9. These are soon going to become extremely sought after, in my opinion. I've been meaning to keep my eyes open for a couple of brand new ones (i.e. not just boxed but unused), because there are going to be a lot of people looking out for them.
  10. I loved the original game, it had a real sense of exploration amidst all the blasting, as well as being rather funny. I much preferred it to Quake. That was then though. In today's climate, with more than 3 or 4 FPSs to go up against, it will have to be utterly revolutionary to warrant this long in development.
  11. I can understand that. The beginning is quite slow. If you're not entranced by the time you meet Zelda, you officially don't like it.
  12. The Simpsons again: "Must....die...in classic...Lorne Green pose...from...Battlestar Galactica! Best...death...everrrrr!"
  13. "He may have sniping madness, but that's no excuse for sniping rudeness!"
  14. Except that I beat him without realising that. What a muppet. That's a great moment. The large spooky expanse which gradually morphs back to a normal room after the battle. Atmospheric stuff...
  15. Nope, not even close to Lttp's dungeons. They are complete masterpieces. Atomsphere? As a child I was absolutely terrified of the Dark World forest dungeon. Those fucking weird faces still unnerve me even now. Gannon's Tower is the zenith of Zelda dungeons, requiring you to pull together every single skill that you have acquired during the course of the game. It also features an optional puzzle that is one of the most elegant little puzzles ever to feature in any Zelda game. Well, I prefer the ones in OoT, although I see your point entirely.
  16. The 'adult' temples in Zelda are the best ever. Best bosses, best atmosphere, best puzzles, best everything. The Forest Temple was my favourite, but that doesn't mean the the next ones are any worse, just that it had my favourite setting and atmosphere. You'll love the boss!
  17. Yeah, but she's still a bird, innit.
  18. I am a Thrust-ship. I am small and tricky - where you think I am, I probably am not. I can work very fast, but I tend to go about things in a round about way, which often leaves me effectively standing still. I hate rocks. Bloody rocks. Cool!
  19. Cool, that got on my nerves. Despite importing them, I have not finished Oracle of Seasons, and Oracle of Ages lies unopened ... they just didn't grab me in the way Link's Awakening did. I can't exactly fault them either, it just felt like more of the same ... And where have you been, young man? The Majora's Mask menu is pretty much instant now. And the higher res and framerate fix is just lovely. The Oracle games are my least favourite Zelda titles, but they're still fantastic. I can't really remember that much about them though. Tell a lie! I remember Twinrova! That was cool.
  20. I don't understand you crazy people who have got unfinished Zelda games. When I get a new one, they virtually complete themselves, i.e. I play them voraciously, like an addict getting a fix, until every last bit is done. Then I usually play them again from the beginning. Got my 4 game bonus disk last night. Majora's Mask looks lovely! Oh, and they've improved the speed with which the game pulls up the menu screen by the way. There was a small delay in OoT GC.
  21. I don't know what you two are talking about; as far as I know, I'm completely correct on this matter. Oh I see. Yes, I know I could have searched myself, but sometimes I prefer asking you guys. You know, in case it starts a discussion.
  22. No; not at all. He wasn't even working for Nintendo at the time, actually. (See this link for further information.) Eh? I read the Biography and the link, and he did both games! "Kondo was trained as a classical musician, and this shows in his more ambitious projects, such as the soundtracks to the Zelda and StarFox series."

  23. Forest Temple. With the terrifying hand guys that grab you. *shudder* Well, the forest Temple was my favourite bit of the game. It had a really creepy atmosphere, what with the big open hall bit, the twisty corridor puzzle, and of course The Grabbing HandTM. Why did you stop? Are you stuck?
  24. I was about to say how much I liked the music. That level where you're flying over green sewage water and that bird comes to help you - superb stuff. Does anyone know if it was the same composer as OoT?
  25. A lot of people say that, and I do agree that it is class, but there just isn't enough that is as memorable as OoT. Go on, tell me why you think it's the best.
