  1. It totally depends on the game.

    Agreed.

    I like to run through rpgs, I'm always sure to maintain a good stock of potions and status heals and what not. But there's a real sense of accomplishment when you manage to trudge through difficult boss battles because you are under leveled. Also it's faster, and the less random battles I have to sit through the better.

    It does depend on the game though. I recently ran through Chrono Trigger, and it wasn't too difficult just soaring through it. But then again when I play something like Dragon Warrior 7, I'm forced to sit back and grind.

    I guess I would have to vote A, with healing items. :<

  2. Perhaps I shall give the RE classics another chance.

    Done and done.

    I sum them up with one word: Blarg!

    I tried soooo hard to beat the REmake, but I just didn't have the patience for it. I started a new game about 6 times after thinking that I could have ran through better than my current session but every time I do I expend like 12 shots killing a single zombie, and then die helplessly.

    NJ had it right on the button (even though he was referancing the new one :< )

    What I hate is when a game is made artificially difficult because of it's controls/setup.

    I couldn't have said it better myself.

    I mean, how scary can a zombie be when he's walking towards you at a snails pace, moaning and groaning. It isn't. However it IS when the controll scheme has you running in circles and the aiming is far FAR worse. How can the game put such importance on headshots when it is IMPOSSIBLE to pull off?

    As for RE5, I love it! It's nice that they added the "stomp" command so that I don't waste shots capping a zombie in the head while they're lying down. Sure it isn't that scary, but nothing is after you hit puberty. (Although Silent Hill [Game. Not movie] scares the balls off me) Not being able to move while shooting is a little annoying, but I got used to it in RE4. I just really enjoy the headshot-melee strike combo, it's a fun way to kill hordes of zombies.

    Also, I don't been to be a graphics whore... but, damn!

  3. There's really no point in arguing what is "better."

    Although I believe that a lot of vg music appreciation is gained from nostalgia. When you hear or play a song from a video game you are reminded of the events happening while the song was playing in the game. These effects can be even greater if you enjoy the song.

    As for practicing guitar with 8-bit game music, more power to ya! I find playing the tetris theme on keyboard is much more fun practice than playing the monotonous folks songs from the piano book.

  4. Hurm, you say that like being a fan of Rorschach is a bad thing.

    Not necessarily, he just seems like the type of character that you like at first, but end up hating because he is all the rage on the internet, work, and school. Although I suppose a true fan would appreciate the character no matter what other people think.

    You know what I mean though, it happened with Napoleon Dynamite, as well as the song BYOB from Soad >.<

    Love the song, but when it came out, it aired on the radio every 16 minutes.

  5. I just saw Watchmen last night and I must say, for someone who has never seen a lick of the comic, it was fucking fantastic!

    Aside from the beginning being a little drawn out, and some of the actions scenes being ever so slightly corny, I was deeply impressed with this movie.

    I don't wish to add myself among the inevitable mountains of fanboys that Rorschach will no doubt accumulate, but goddamn he is freakin awesome!

  6. Basically the opposite of a boss character on the game balance spectrum.

    Rather than having intentionally cheap moves that that are difficult to counter, the joke character has weak moves with poor range, priority, and/or damage.

    Another definition would be a parody character, like Shingo and Yuri from KoF.

    I see.

    I always defined joke characters as people who fought with unconventional fighting styles, and that appeared just outright ridiculous.

    Thanks for shedding some light.:razz:

  7. Biride isn't a joke character at all. In SFA2, he has a 75% health custom combo. He's also pretty high up on the Japanese tier list if I recall (well, higher than you'd think he is.. probably at least upper mid.) If you're up against a good Birdie player, you'll probably have your back against the wall.

    But I use Dan all the time. :) I'm happy to see that you can do his kick special move in mid-air like all the other shotos have been able to for years now. He might have the fastest back dash in the bunch, or ideally should, in the form of running away. That's not too shabby though the forward dash is a bit more useful.

    Man... I really want my friend to buy this so I can play it... for free... D:

    Just because they're joke characters doesn't mean they can't kick ass. I'm a Wario player, after all.

    But I have yet to see someone play Birdie well, I would have to bestow props to someone who actually practices him.

  8. Don't say that around Larry... he's been rockin' a mean T.Hawk on HDR for quite awhile now...

    That dang T.Hawk! every time I play against him on HDR he just flies around the battlefield, up down up down up down, same damn thing! Plus his fighting pose is just ridiculous looking

    Also...

    Me and my friends have been trying to unlock Seth.

    Gamespot says: Seth

    Beat the game, on Arcade Mode, with all non-unlockable characters.

    I have done this and I have yet to unlock him. I did, however, play on easiest for the last few matches (as I was getting impatient). Anyone else unlock seth? How'd ya do it?

  9. I've been up against mostly akumas, actually. Managed to beat a couple with Dan.

    I am dedicating myself to maining him.

    /cheer

    Dan is awesome, it's simple to find joke characters in games like ssbb, but rarely do you see one in street fighter. (Birdie should never be mentioned, and T-hawk is a joke in himself) He's quite the fun character to play though, two-inch hadoukens and the ability to taunt in the air ftw!

  10. Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile Guile.

    Playing Guile serves two purposes, he owns, and if you're lucky your opponent will throw out a special and you will catch Guile's dumbfounded facial expression firsthand.

  11. Well, I spose I would have to select A, as a PC (usually) has a much higher price than those listed.

    Price excluded, I would definitely choose to get my good ol 360 back. It's winning over the wii for me currently, because the games for it reign supreme. This is subject to change, however.
