  1. vg music > Publisher > series (if it's big enough to warrant i.e. Mario, Castlevania) > Game

    OCRs share the same folder space as other mixes and source tunes. I rarely keep albums in their own separate folder unless they're something unique about them (Chiptuned Rockman, FFIV Celtic Moon) or I'm feeling lazy. When I do, they'll go either in the game's folder or the series', depending on the scope of the album.

  2. From GameCenter CX, a Japanese TV show where Japanese comedian Shinya Arino plays through retro video games.

    Arino:

    LT: First Arino and the rest seem alright.

  3. Game Center CX: Arino's Challenge 2 - Namco Bandai

    Door Door - Enix

    Chun, Invekun, Namegon, Otapyon, Amechan

    LT: Pass on standing Wynn (walking's better), the Umihara profile (not sharp enough, no contrast in the face), and the Door Door characters (pretty ugly sprites). But good diversity here on what was taken.

    Lamp and Hippy

    LT: Top ones ain't nice to look at. Not really feeling the lamp or hippie, but I'm dadaist enough to allow 'em. Why not.

  5. I was playing Mega Man X the other day and noticed a perfectly usable Maverick insignia. I remember looking for one in June for Boss month and not finding any, so here you are

    I also noticed the Dr. Light av in the Mega Man X gallery wasn't transparent. Not sure if it's intentional or not, so I went and fixed it

    And just because I'm on another Earthbound kick, here's The Forgotten Man from Mother 1, including a fan-made 16-bit version I found on Starmen.net

    Mother Earth

    FGQqP.gif8b01s.gif

    LT: Rolled with the transparent MMXs and the 16-bit custom Forgotten Man. Pass on the earth. Mother 1 sprites sure look horrible.

  6. X-Arcades are pretty terrible from what I heard. Input lag, cheap parts, and terrible button placement are among the common complaints I've seen. If you're gonna spend that much on a controller, might as well get something decent.

  7. why is anyone emotionally attached to macho man randy savage

    He was an awesome wrestler in the '80s, did some entertaining Slim Jim commercials, and did some pretty memorable voiceover work (including an episode of Space Ghost Coast to Coast). So yeah, what Charlie's Angel said.

    DAMN!

    He wasnt in the WWE Hall of Fame, isnt it?

    Unfortunately no. Randy Savage was one of the few big names of the past that Vince McMahon refuses to do business with.

  8. I for one am unhappy with those who obsess over them, I've even gone as far as giving 'Speechs' on PSHome against them!

    So you obsess over those that obsess over them?

    I think they're great. They've added more replay value to some games for me. I don't really care about the gamerscore aspect, I just see them as extra challenges the devs put in there for me to complete. Unless it's an online only or stupidly impossible achievement, I'll probably go out of my way to at least try to get it.

    And really, so what if some people play only for the score. It's not my time or money they're wasting, so why should I care.

  9. I'd call it having standards

    If those are the standards of video game journalism, I'm glad I don't read any of that garbage.

    The way I see it is that the important people behind the series were trying to trick their consumers into thinking it was a good game when in actuality it wasn't. Thank goodness that people like Gerstmann are willing to stand up and be like "naw, this game sucks, I cannot lie". So they fire him. That's the point in which the series (the developers, marketting dept, etc) have failed us, and that's the point in which I have decided that the series does not deserve a *fair chance*. As long as it's coming from those people, I feel like I can't trust them. I don't see why this way of thinking would upset any of you :P

    I just don't get how one guy getting fired for giving a game a fair unbiased review means that any subsequent games in that franchise deserve to be unfairly shit on by other reviewers. It's just as deceptive as being paid big money for positive reviews. Two wrongs don't make a right and all that jazz.

    Like I said, if you as a consumer want nothing to do with the franchise, fine whatever. I just don't agree with your point that the game deserves low scores solely because of the Gerstmann deal. It should earn those scores because it's a shit game.

    On the flip side, I suppose if the sequel were produced by an entirely different group of people, it would be silly to begrudge them for the former developer's foul play.

    But the devs had nothing to do with it. It was Eidos. Even if the game was handed to another studio, Eidos would still be in charge of publishing and marketing.
