  1. It's good to know that he has made more songs than what he has on his site. I'd appreciate that link if you could Sobou. My current favs are: (these are direct downloads by the way) http://www.ssh.ne.jp/mp3/ms.zip (The Coop should recognize this one ) and http://www.ssh.ne.jp/mp3/ff6_tdb2.zip (Who wouldn't recognize this one) I don't see why it would be a problem, since you can download tunes off his site for free (which these 2 are from). And we're not exactly making money off of them, just sharing them for others enjoyment. Oh well, if I get burned for this, so be it, at least it'll be me and not you.
  2. I have no idea what the reviews on this game were (good or bad), but it rarely ever gets mentioned so I nominate: Silhouette Mirage (PS1) Extremely colorful is probably the best way to describe it. The whole game concept could be described as "Huh?". The fighting sytem was kind of hard (turn left for red damage, turn right for blue). The bosses were retarded and rather difficult. But the whole game was just hilarious and addictive. I only beat it once, but I played it for 2 months straight. I might just decide to play it in a few. I also throw in a vote for FFMQ. There are other games mentioned that I would vote on, but I'm suffering from short term memory loss right now, and cant be bothered to go back thru the thread. And for those of you who continue to try to light the fire by using this thread as an excuse to say "FFVII/Metal Gear/Legend of Zelda/Mega Man SUCKS!!!!111!!1", do the rest of us a favor and shut the hell up. Its nice that you are capable of forming an opinion for yourselves (even if it did require outside help), but whether you like the games or not, we don't need to be reminded every single thread. God knows the rest of us already know where you stand.
  3. I love the list and the story. And while I can come up with exceptions to a lot of those rules, and that some are obviously meant for one game in particular, I find that list to be unsurprisingly accurate. Hooray for RPGs
  4. I like how the thread itself looks. Very clean, lots of info. Don't really care for how the thread list looks though. Its difficult to tell all of the labels apart. Over all though, I like it.
  5. Went outside and watched most of my neighbors blow up literally thousands of dollars worth of fireworks (very spectacular btw). Drank some champaigne, played some Twilight Princess, and then died.
  6. I would think that it is all about what you consider fun. If you like puzzles, then you'll find puzzle games fun. Like driving? Then you probably like racing games. If I was playing a game where I didn't find it fun and there wasn't any other draw for me, then I would seriously consider NOT playing it. There are plenty of other games out there. I don't think there are any games out there that are so important that you HAVE to play them, even if they're as boring as watching paint peel. Just remember that for every game you don't find fun, there is someone out there who enjoys it.
  7. I currently live on the bottom half of the B in Cuba (though it should really be called Puerto Rico, they far out number the cubans here) I used to live just to the left of the W in Whitey. And before that, about as far to the upper left of Hicks as you can get/
  8. Happy Day to all of you fruitloops out there.
  9. I'll sig you wingless, just give me something "witty"
  10. ... We HAVE to get our own Bikini Bandits here in the US. Hell yeah. It would give the Victoria Secret girls something to do between commercials.

    PC Gaming

    I feel your pain. I used to play Duke Nukem 3-D and Marathon on my old Mac, but then I had to send the Mac to my brother, and UPS managed to break the monitor. And even a Mac emulator won't play the games, so I have no choice but to find either an adapter for a regular monitor or a Macintosh Monitor so that I can play those games again. Its gotten to the point now where I can't even play Warcraft 2 on my current PC. I don't know if anyone else has this problem, but I can't slow the scrolling down. Just a brush of the mouse sends the cursor all the way to the other side of the map, making it impossible to manage anything in game. I tried looking for patches\going to forums, and I did find what was supposed to be a fix, but it didn't work. Any help from you guys about this would be greatly appreciated.
  12. The only problem I forsee with switching to Mac is Microsoft's control over Mac. Something tells me that when Vista goes mainstream, something along the same lines will happen to Mac OS. I could be acting paranoid here, but I prefer to think negative, so if the positive happens, I'm pleasantly surprised. And while I'm not questioning the authenticity of this article, I don't think that Vista will be quite that restrictive. Or at least, there will be versions available (probably for high price) that will have lower restrictions. As the article pointed out, certain fields, such as medicine, can't have systems like this in the way, causing obstructions or modifying info. Especially when it means a person's life. That would pave the way to all kinds of lawsuits, some or most of which would hurt even Microsoft. It's just not smart, regardless of how much Hollywood or the RIAA are paying them. But yeah, I have no intention of buying Vista anytime soon, regardless of its usefulness, or lack there of. And as far as I'm concerned, Fuck Microsoft.
  13. I played trombone for 6 years (6th grade thru to graduation). Played mostly Tenor, though I used an F-attachment for 5 of those years. Unfortunately, its been about 6 years since I played, so I'm a little rusty. As for grading, the only diffrence we had from regular high school classes would be chairs. Chairs were 1st, 2nd, and 3rd (and sometimes 4th, though rarely) and these were obtained by skill. I myself was 1st. And of course your chair determined your part in the music, 1st having the most difficult. And in regards to marching, while playing trombone can be kind of rough on you (yeah, I tended to get winded during a long parade), I felt more sympathy towards the poor bastards playing the baritone. The baritone weighs more, and you have to hold it away from your body all the time, with no straps to help. I do miss playing it though. I'm going to have to buy myself one one of these days.
  14. About the only people I have ever had bring me food were members of the local baptist church. Mostly bread, and not nearly that often. Is the guy kind of large? Maybe he's trying to get food out of his house to lose weight? Hopefully you're double checking all of this food, the world being what it is and all.
  15. Yeah I would suggest getting all of the games you can on the GC, for the better graphics if nothing else.
  16. I just saw this story on the news. Too damn funny. http://www.local6.com/spotlight/10575315/detail.html
  17. Rock On!! Great to have you back Ailsean.
  18. Last report was that he was in serious condition. As for the mall, they weren't entirely finished by the next morning. I understand that there is still visible evidence. Crazy people stop moving here! Oh well, another one bites the dust.
  19. For Lunar Eternal Blue, I had far more trouble with the Black Dragon. I actually managed to beat him by accident, which is a funny story. I fought him for maybe 20 minutes, just pounding on him with everything I had. He eventually managed to kill everyone in my party EXCEPT Lucia. I almost reset the game, thinking that the battle was pretty much over, but I didn't, for some reason. For those of you wondering why, you don't control Lucia, the computer does. Anyway, he just couldn't seem to kill her, as she always healed herself right afterwords, and then attacked him for about 160 damage. She did this 3 times, and he died. I nearly fell out of my chair when that happened.
  20. Another difficult boss i could think of was the final boss of Vagrant Story, a truly shitty squaresoft game that used the same basic system as Parasite Eve, only more retarded. Anyway, the boss usually stayed completely out of attack range, and he had one attack that, if this was your first time through the game, would kill in one hit if you didnt perfectly time a special blocking move that was a pain in the ass to do (believe me, I tried). Possibly the worst Squaresoft game ever.
  21. I would have to say that the best part of this mix is the original part at 3:29, where the drum kicks in a little harder, and the synth goes on a roller coaster ride. Great for driving (fast). Keep it up Salzman.
  22. Hey, as i had mentioned in another thread, if you want an impossible boss, the last boss in the cabinet (arcade style) game terminator 2. Ive watched people waste tens of dollars attacking him, only to find that the creators had made the boss invincible so as to suck your quarters dry. But that is also a cheap arcade game. As for most difficult boss, try the final boss from Shinobi from ps2. To quote from a faq i found for the game, this boss can be best described as the "The video game embodiment of Murphy's Law: What can go wrong, will, at the worst possible time. And then he'll laugh and do it again. To beat him, you had to change your stretegy totally, and spend every waking moment just trying to stay alive for the minute chance of actually hitting him. By the way Zrexe, are you talking about Ragu O' Ragla? Yeah, hes a cock sucker alright, but he is in every Wild Arms game. He's like Ruby Weapon in FF7, Omega Weapon in FF8, or Indalecio Celesta in Star Ocean 2; the final kick in the ass for those of us who must beat the game completely.
