MasterMarcus, or MarcusAntonius?

They both have the same personality. Bit too serious most of the time, and seem very opinionated.

He just get so pist off over the dumbest things. And types so..."weridoly". And there's someone else who is like Marcus?

Lost winds is a lot of fun too. I love the graphics in that game; it makes Star Wars: TFU looks like crap in comparison! Just playing 30 minutes of this game makes me wish Nintendo would make the next Metroid game 2D with 3D graphics (First person Metroid has been played out enough for now, IMO).

Well, I have to go to class now. Dammit!  Happy


Eat shit and die!

WTF? What's wrong with that? New Super Mario used 2.5D, and it was fantastic! I love true 2D sprites as much as the next guy, but there's nothing wrong with 2.5D either.

Yeah which is why NSMB looked like crap. Metroid Wii should be like Warioland Shake It!

I disagree with you on NSMB looking like crap, but to each their own. Either 2D or 2.5D on Metroid work for me. I'm just getting tired of the first person Metroid games.

If you could make you own graphic adventure game, what would it be like?

I'm not much of an adventure gamer, but let's see.

Imprisoned in a massive dungeon, you escape your cell but as you try to escape, you find yourself amidst a much greater plot and must stealthily unravel the mystery.

Using a faded pallette, but with a not-too-dark design.

Materials gathered will be used in MacGyver style combinations, and enemies will be dispelled by setting environmental traps.

The nature of the design would likely be limited in combinations, so length would be limited, making it a good choice for WiiWare.  Moving around would  be a control-stick motion, but investigation of an area and items would be done via pointer function.

Some people at gaf have impressions from Little Big Planet. Edge magazine claims its the best 2D platformer since Super Mario World.

Another user that is in the beta says:

So hard not to keep talking about this game. Playing the last chapter now and this game is the most inventive, both visually and mechanic wise, platformer/game since Super Mario World. there's just some staggerringly good and surprising moments in here. There's a bit at this one level where it's like playing Sonic where you hurtle down slopes with your Sackboy collecting points and just before that it was electrified platform city a'la Super Mario.

So this looks to be the best 2D platformer since Super Mario World. *head explodes*

Don't you mean Super Mario World 2 Vader?

Oh, and Path of radiance as well, for gamecube. Should I get them? Yes?

Steel have you ever played Ocarina?

No.

What is it good?

o_0

As someone who played it for the first time ever about 2 years ago. It was surprisingly enjoyable. Unlike most other 3rd person 3D games of that era it has aged extremely well. However the only complaint would be that the dungeons aren't crafted as well as say Twilight Princess. I can see why it is still remembered in the community however I don't see why some still refer to it as "the best game ever" as there are other games that "perfect" their genres far more then this game did. That saying it was one of the most "soulful" games I've played.

Same here.

I only played the start of it for years (never owned my own copy) - and it was until recently that I actually made it past that a few days ago.

I can see why people love that game, but I need to play a bit mroe of it to see if it's really THAT great.

IT IS THAT GREAT.

I didn't really like the look or "feel" of NSMB. Mario himself, if I remember well enough, looked like a better model of Mario from SM64, but stuck in a 2D environment. Looked really odd.

I want the next Metroid to either be 3D like the Primes, or 2D like the Zero Mission, Super Metroid, and Fusion. NSMB put a bad taste in my mouth that I associate with 2.5D stuff. Dunno if it's warranted, but it's how I feel about it.

OoT Master Quest is a great game. Harder (and, in that way, better) than the normal version of the game, but the dungeons are a bit weird because of it. For example, there are gravestones and keese (bats) in the Deku Tree.

i honestly find it hard to understand how NSMB could rub someone the wrong way so much Nyaa .  I mean even if you don't find it entirely to your taste surely there is still a lot to like about the game.  I personally have played it more than galaxy at this point (not in any way a criticism to galaxy) and i can't seem to stop wanting to play it any time soon.

NSMB was, at the time, yet another overly easy game from Nintendo. Just like with Wind Waker and Twilight Princess, I was very disappointed because of that. Additionally, for a 2D Mario game in year 200X (whatever year it came out), it was WAAAAAAAY too simplistic. Not enough power-ups, for example. And the worlds are much too linear. I would have welcomed with open arms something similar to Super Mario World, but no, I got something extremely weak in comparison. One final gripe I have about it is that at least one song plays way too often. Other Mario games are guilty of this, but at least I liked their repetitive songs better.

On the good side, I actually did like some of the character/creature models (especially skeletal Bowswer), but also, as I said, they seem out of place to me, given the background.

Where did you bring it to? Nyaa

I actually kinda wish I hadn't bought it, myself. Most of my games I get from Wal-Mart, though, and I'm not sure if they'd accept a return simply because I didn't like it. They always ask what the matter is with stuff, expecting responses such as "it broke" or "it doesn't fit my lard-ass."

What game stores have the "if you don't like it, return it" policy? I wonder if there are any in my area.... I think all we have are GameStop and... maybe EB, but that's really the same thing. Also got Target, Best Buy, and Wal-Mart, but those aren't game stores.

I went to gamestop and traded it in for $15 credit and got Kirby's Canvas Curse instead (I think).

There's a bit at this one level where it's like playing Sonic where you hurtle down slopes with your Sackboy collecting points and just before that it was electrified platform city a'la Super Mario.

So this looks to be the best 2D platformer since Super Mario World. *head explodes*

Edge said it was the most pure platformer since World not the best! Not yet anyways. Which doen't say much, because World was not that pure either. The feather power-up  broke most of the pureness. And talking about the stagggering surprises in the game. Yoshi's Island was the game with the staggering inventive stuff. To be honest most of the level of World were kinda forgetable. I honestly think that the 2D levels in Galaxy are the most fun and pure platforming levels I have ever played. Hopefully you can create gravity changing levels in LBP.

Oh and Vader stop hyping this game, it will make the wait only harder.

Zelda sucks, lets talk about something else. Nyaa (Steel play it or die!)

Some people at gaf have impressions from Little Big Planet. Edge magazine claims its the best 2D platformer since Super Mario World.

Another user that is in the beta says:

I saw on a tiny game store yesterday a GC game with OoT and another OoT. Is it worth it?

Oh, and Path of radiance as well, for gamecube. Should I get them? Yes?

Steel have you ever played Ocarina?

No.

What is it good?

As someone who played it for the first time ever about 2 years ago. It was surprisingly enjoyable. Unlike most other 3rd person 3D games of that era it has aged extremely well. However the only complaint would be that the dungeons aren't crafted as well as say Twilight Princess. I can see why it is still remembered in the community however I don't see why some still refer to it as "the best game ever" as there are other games that "perfect" their genres far more then this game did. That saying it was one of the most "soulful" games I've played.

Same here.

I only played the start of it for years (never owned my own copy) - and it was until recently that I actually made it past that a few days ago.

I can see why people love that game, but I need to play a bit mroe of it to see if it's really THAT great.

IT IS THAT GREAT.

When does it get great?

When you play it in 1998 or if you get to the Forest Temple!

Day of the Tentacles.

Is about Japanese school girls and tentacles. You figure out the rest.

Im trying to imagine the gameplay mechanics.

I love how the graphical adventure genre is ripe for detective games.

I have a thing for Martin C. Smith's novels starring Arkady Renko, so obviously I'd love to make a graphical adventure using him as the main character. It would be set in present day Russia, with Renko as a homicide investigator getting himself involved (without knowing) in a huge conspiracy involving weapon traffic in the highest government ecchelons.

It would be a point and click adventure also focused on investigation and forensic stuff with a few puzzles here and there, probably during stressing times (i.e. trying to get out from a freezer, where a goon locked you in, or trying to plant a microphone inside a big shot office). The thing i would like to make more relevant would be that every character you meet has his/her own agenda, and the game itself would be filled with treachery and double crossings, even from the most sympathetic characters.

I'd keep it on PC, probably with a console port in a year or so. I wouldn't want it to look realistic, but rather to follow a more cartoony approach, but grim, think of that Vampyre game mixed with Sin City. I'd like it to be about 15-20 hrs. long.

Sounds cool. That reminds me of this old PC graphic adventure I played that had vampires in it.

Well, I have to go to class now. Dammit!  Happy

Lost Winds has great visuals, better than a lot of retail discs.

I rented the first and the sequel I got online for $2. Both Xbox version. Max Payne is the FEAR of third person shooters, no level design to speak of, no variety to speak of, just shooting over and over and over.

$2?? Wow. I agree with what you say, but it was still fun Nyaa

Is FEAR that bad?

Yeah which is why NSMB looked like crap. Metroid Wii should be like Warioland Shake It!

I disagree with you on NSMB looking like crap, but to each their own. Either 2D or 2.5D on Metroid work for me. I'm just getting tired of the first person Metroid games.

It does look like crap. I hate this 2.5 D look. I would prefer a straight up 2-D game. Played well though.

If you could make you own graphic adventure game, what would it be like?

I'm not much of an adventure gamer, but let's see.

Materials gathered will be used in MacGyver style combinations, and enemies will be dispelled by setting environmental traps.

i honestly find it hard to understand how NSMB could rub someone the wrong way so much Nyaa .  I mean even if you don't find it entirely to your taste surely there is still a lot to like about the game.  I personally have played it more than galaxy at this point (not in any way a criticism to galaxy) and i can't seem to stop wanting to play it any time soon.

It does look rubbish presentationally, I just can't take this 3-D characters in 2-D, almost pre-rendered at times look. That said it's a really good game and the best 2-D platformer I played for ages. It re-creates the mario feel and is a lot of fun.

GG, you'll be pleased to know that because I can't play the xbox for long stretches I've started Bully seriously!

Sweet. Impressions please. I laughed so much playing this game.
