    Silent Hill Challenge

    A classic challenge, curiously what level of difficulty are you playing..?

    Sony PS3

    Hardware failure. The best you can do is simply more research on the "YLOD" for the ps3. If you want you can try doing a DIY-repair on your PS3; get a month worth card of the PSN+, use the cloud to transfer as much info over as you can and prepare to switch over to a new ps3 model. This is of course assuming the fix manages to get the old ps3 working once more; if only to last for a week or so if not more.

    So regarding your keeled over ps3, there's no light, 3 beeps and nothing..? Not even the possibility that the power cord got loose on the ps3's back end..?

    Lollipop Chainsaw

    Lollipop Chainsaw is probably the best action/hack'n'slash arcade fun I've had in a good while. The game's short but sweet as each stage area can be played between 45 minutes to over an hour depending on how dedicated you are to using and just being quick on the draw er button presses. The atmosphere through out the game reeks of B-Horror movie goodness (Think Army of Darkness) with gameplay of DMC/Bayonetta fare; just without tons of weapons. For some one who's heavily seasoned with earlier mentioned games the difficulty on normal, at least, may seem easy at the first go. I have observed with a friend who has NEVER played such games have a good challenge with a couple of loses thrown in; I'd recommend playing on Hard at the first go imo. Using Juliet's Pom-poms to both do light but easily chained combo/stunning damage along side her trademark chainsaw manages to keep the adrenaline going to see how long I can go untouched through it all while collecting coins (zombie medels in gold and platinum flavors) to upgrade Juliets stats and skill repertoire. Aside from the main game there are "mini-games" in between sections of a stage. Where in one stage it's a baseball game where you actually play as "defend the target" as said target is to finish 3 laps around the field without being killed. You fail you lose which can hurt your evaluated score by the end of the stage. Funnily I've found the mini-games to be the source of my many losses/deaths rather than the main game, which I'm fine as it breaks up the action comfortably. Aesthetically with a pulp comic feel to everything I'm not disappointed along side pretty much having .Most of all I was absolutely delighted how varied the tracks are in LC. Between the licenced tracks to Lollipop Chainsaw's original tracks (Done by Akira Yamaoko and Jimmy Urine) it never felt so gloriously put together. True to arcade games, it demands replays from rank mode, speed run mode and of course for %100 completionists out there; at the very least play one stage a day to savor it all as it is short like most arcade-style games. The bonus of having "Twilight Sparkle" have occasionally raunchy dialogue is a nice bonus too

    Megaman's back, sort of

    This particular Megaman incarnation's already my Steam Avatar image. So considering there's a lot of exclusives coming out for the PS3/PSVita versions, the 360 verion's getting dick squat? Not even a masterchief for themselves?

    Probably old news but it's related to that streetfighter x tekken game.

    Looking for an old "horror" NES game (title?)

    Now why isn't it out on the Wii's virtual console.

    Looking for an old "horror" NES game (title?)

    You could always look up the list of NES games here Interestingly I can't think of an NES game where you turn into a bat and human back and forth except for when you team up with Alucard.

    Super Mario Bros. Opera (catchy as fuck)

    Still doesn't make it appear good at all though, as it seems to imply the singer's just a blowhard making noises that are utterly tolerable to listen to the way I interpret it. That and it's terrible to encourage the way it's used; way too easy to misunderstand others using it that way. That said, the singing's not bad at all, would have actually preferred traditional instruments behind that voice as it actually sounds good.

    Games with powerful stories?

    I don't know, considering he's playing NIER I have a tough time comparing it to any other with the exceptions being Forbidden Siren 1 & 2 as well as the Fatal Frame series. Hell all you know at first is that you're simply a 40 year something father (20 something brother in the Japanese version) trying to raise as well as find a cure for your daughter from a devastating disease. By the time you reach the end as well as gone through every single note explaining the world itself, the disease among other things; It just suddenly cascades upon you when the realizations on everything has been discovered. To quote a reply on /v/'s message board when some one asked about NIER, it's basically this image. Why exactly I won't say for the sake of not spoiling anything. I will just say I was satisfied after seeing everything it had to offer. Forbidden Siren 1 & 2's narratives had such complexities regarding to their prospective stories its mind boggling but at the same time fun trying to piece it all together, especially since they both use the Butterfly Effect on their stories. Not everything are what they seem in those games. The games depend not only on what you do but what items/artifacts/notes ect that you find throughout the games.

    Celebrate the McRib

    I still say it's nothing more than their breakfast sausage patties mashed together into larger patties with a couple of buns to put it together. Some how it makes it taste worse than the actual sausage patties they have. Real shame and missed opportunity to serve actual Pulled Pork sandwiches with a specialty sauce or dip for the sandwich to go into...

    You're pretty much obligated to play it if you're a fan of shmups.
