  1. No, he looks like a Nazi, okay? If I wanted to call him an Aryan I would have, but that carries no real negative connotations, so I chose Nazi, which means he's either blond and blue-eyed, suicidal, or Hitler. Possibly a combination. Jeez.
  2. Someone said OoT Link looks like a Nazi and I agree. Dirty blond TP Link FTW.
  3. I never really understood the draw of PvP, at least before hitting 60. Maybe that's the second reason I don't play any more.
  4. ??? I heard it was over 70 hours playtime, just at a simple run through... Not that 35 is bad. Curse you international people, having it already. I gotta wait til the 7th for the Australian launch... I'm pretty sure it was advertised as about 40 hours playtime on the first run, with 60-70 hours to collect everything. And, of course, good gamers will find that developers always overestimate playtime.
  5. WHERE THE HELL IS THAT KID'S MOM. TELL ME AND I WON'T KILL YOU. NEAR THE CREEK, WONDERING ABOUT A CRADLE THAT FLOATED DOWN THE RIVER. WAIT WHERE IS ANINYMOUSE WHAT DID DIO KILL HIM OH NO.
  6. Yeah, but does that mean an 8.8, especially when every other reviewing site gave it a 9.5+. Are they really saying that this game is comparable to Super Monkey Ball (8.3)and Trauma Center (8.0)? I take this back. After going over the GS review in more detail, and looking at how the rating system works at GS I would probably score about the same on the GS system. It's more the fault of the review system than the reviewer in this case. The sound or graphic rating has an equal value to gameplay or value rating, and the overall score is based on an average of these factors. When IMO, gameplay and value should have a higher proportional impact on the score. It should also be taken into account that he did give it a 10 tilt rating. If I were to guess my rating on the GS system, it would most likely come out like this: Gameplay - 10 (It's freakin' zelda) Graphics - 9 (GC level, but good art design) Sound - 8 (High quality midi, but still midi) Value- 9 (Should have tons of side quests) Tilt - 10 (It's freakin' zelda) Score - 9.2 Only 0.4 points higher than the GS review. Um, no. If it were simply an average of scores, Jeff's review actually scores Twilight Princess at 8.8. There's some additional weight involved, and your review is likely more of a 9.3-9.4 (notice that if it were simply an average, no game could ever have an odd-digited score such as a 9.9, 9.7 or 9.3, but many do). I don't care about the 8.8, but most of Jeff's gripes within the written review seem ridiculous to me and give credence to the fanboy insults about how he's a fat moron.
  7. I think most people would level up enough just finding out what to do to get to that point, though. I killed the Djinn out in one round with the help of one of the ice spell items, and dominated most of the other enemies because I equipped Luneth with the undead-slaying sword from the castle.
  8. Unless you're really nit-picking the exact time, the rate at which you can get your party members keeps them pretty much the same level. I messed around a little before getting the last two, though, so I'm usually having two or three a level higher than the rest.
  9. It seems not to be anything more at first glance, but supposedly using it unlocks features like extra items and classes? and a whole extra dungeon.
  10. I love FFIII. First thing I notice from the beautiful opening and in-game appearance is that the graphic quality definitely reminds me of the PSX era of FF. Second thing, the music is definitely great. I wish for better output quality, but as is it sounds wonderful. Also, for some reason I just love using the touch screen. If I don't have the ability to focus on tapping where I mean to it's a bit annoying and I resort to the buttons, but otherwise the touch screen just seems to make the game even more fun. Also, jobs FTW.
  11. Relatively. If you can't find it at a local EB/GS there should be a plethora on eBay or so. Make sure you're looking for the Ocarina of Time/Master Quest set, not the Collector's Edition set, because the latter is much rarer and consequently much more expensive.
