I think Jet Grind Radio sucks. And Jet Grind Radio is the DC version, JGR Future is the Xbox version. The Xbox version is apparently worse but I cant stand the DC version.


No respect for Sonic at all. Tsk tsk.

DIE.

Please DIE.

I played it on the DC anniversary, what garbage. It controls like complete ass. Your character is on skates but is slow as balls. The jumping is horrible, the missions are horrible, the spray paint combat is horrible, the camera is horrible. I could not stand it, no wonder I never finished it. Why people like it is beyond me, maybe I am missing something with the gameplay, maybe there are some moves that makes the character respond well that I dont know about.

It's the J-Pop soundtrack and design that people love it for. I garantee that 100% of those people never made it past the third stage (because it is impossible).


I have to say, that when I played it on the DC back in the day the graphics alone really impressed.

When I started my old game save I was at a point with three missions to choose from. One was a race with some dude that was impossible to catch. Another was this fight with three gang members in some sewers, they just skated this circular sewers over and over and over, horrible. The other was a normal level where you had to spary up the place on time. All three missions pissed me off.

By the looks of things, the pressroom is taking a week off for the Euro Podcast, am I right in assuming that?

That's the idea, but it's not yet clear on the scheduling and availability, hence why I've put off posting here that it's off.

 It makes more sense than my attempted outro, though.

I am in the process of reversing it now. On the podcast:
  1. The Animal Crossing cunundrum of Nintendogs being introduced into AC while Keke is a dog reminded me of the conversation in the film Stand By Me about Goofy and Pluto.
  2. Capcom has said that they will give "something special" to those who buy both the new and the old Street Fighter. Probably a t-shirt that says "I'm a Sucker."
  3. I think that GTA4 got the reviews it did due to the shock and awe nature of the game. The fact that Rockstar was able to make a game that was not a flop was an acheivement in itself. I mean, I remember how blown away I was my the charactre animations (and things like the TV programming, or getting drunk in-game).  Sure doesn't stand up over time through.
  4. If Vader sings a little in the Review Review section he could call it the Review Review Revue.
  5. Lemmings is a geat ame an would be well suited to the Wii. The advantage the PC version had over the console versions was the lack of a timely pointer. Also, shout out to DMA who developed the game (and then went on to do GTA).
I have more, but given my inability to type this week (this took a while), I'll stop now.
EDIT: I jut listened to the podcast inn reverse -- it didn't work Sad

Okay I listened to the podcast

LKS talk: Buy this game you cumwads, you can get if for cheap. Buy it, or be forever branded a mainstream whore

MadWorld bitching: OMG RAGEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! People who find MadWorld boring are boring people. No there are more ways to kill people that just caution signing them. You can get big points by killing many simultaneously. Lure them together, grab a weapon with big striking range or explosive and boom.

And Vader no you don't have to stay in a level until time expires, you only need to stay until you have sufficient points. Playing better means you can face the boss earlier. You can play MadWorld 2 different ways. 

The speedrunners way: getting massive points and get to the boss as soon as possible

The high score way: getting massive points and staying as long as possible in the level to get the biggest score possible.

Oh and the hard mode makes the fighting more about survival. I agree that the lock-on and camera are bad. Especially the look on, because that would solve the camera problem. And Foolz why were you not defending the game? You should have showed a tire around Vader, stick a sign post in his eye, jam some fire works in his ear and throw him at Yoda and booooom! And then proceed to finish the podcast by yourself.

Wii 4.2 bricking: the hackers have made a new 4.2 update that does everything the real 4.2 update does. But get what? It does not break your freaking console.

PSP Go: yeah same thing what I said last week, what's the point when the old version can do everything?

Jenny McCarthy: about the inoculation thing. There are some religious people that are against vaccines because, they reason, you are interfering with God's work. 

Uncharted 2 Reviews: Adam Sesler's claim is retarded and not worth anything. One you do not know the games he has played before. Two you do not know his previous favorite single player game. Three he is supposed to be a professional, so if someone calls a game best game ever, that sounds like what a guy on a forum would do. To be the best game in something, you need to stand the test of time. I wish reviewers will quite the stupid hyperboles and just explain what the game is about. Let the player decide if it's the best thing ever.

Hah GTA4 talk, see that's my point. Heh, nice to see Galaxy getting praise, but Galaxy did not have lot's of 10s. Sure it had 10s when the only choice was a 9 or a 10. But it got lots of 9.5s, 9.6s, 9.7s, etc. And most reviewers said it was a worthy follow up on Mario 64. I did not hear any best game ever thing there. Sure you hear it on Gaf, but they are not professional reviewers. Maybe in a few years when we look back we can put Galaxy in the top 10 or 20 best games ever. As of now I think it's the best 3D Mario.

And yes Galaxy and Portal or the only games that do not get any backlash. Less games would if reviewers would put down the hyperbole. Oscar Worthy my ass.

The reason why Galaxy did not get any hyperbole is pretty simple. The game was out in Japan a month before reviewers got the US review copies in. Companies should give reviewers the review copy earlier, but they won't, because hyperbole sells games.

Lawsuit talk: if you are a troll Yoda will ban you? Why am I still here, Yoda?

PES talk: PEZ LOL And stop calling it soccers you handegg brainwashed fools!

Onlive: yeah now it will fail for sure

I know! I was so tired that all I could think was "wtf are you talking about" but couldn't quite express why they were wrong. Nyaa

Because we're not.  I'm not bored by lack of ways to kill enemies, I'm bored by the terrible game that it is in general.
