Conker: BFD. I beat the main game a while ago, but the multiplayer is great fun as well.

Should you play it? I honestly can't tell you if you should or not. The game is just that nuts.

Well, we beat Lufia 2 now. (Depressing ending...)

Now to Lufia 1. Although our progress on this will probably be impeded by, well.....

Next one on the list...






Yuu Yuu Hakusho Tokubetsuhen.

...Yea that image basically say I took down all twenty of those people without dying and only taking a small nick of health at best. It's called a suicide battle and it took me a good half hour or so.

Don't want to go into too much detail but...

This is a game for people that aren't squeamish about the Japanese language (it isn't necessary to play the game with it), want something close to a cross between a fighter and a Pokemon game except active time battle and no leveling (or, at least, not in the conventional sense) and really just to say you've played a cinematic (what it's called in terms of genre).

Oh and being a fan of Yuu Yuu Hakusho is also a plus.

Basically, it really is a fighter. The first person that loses all their life is done. There's also a bar that shows how much you can use special attacks, a bar for your endurance - meaning, you take too much of a beating you're gonna get your ass kicked to the pavement regardless of health - to monitor, and a center 'orb' that is a random amount of points for your special attack gauge to feed on depending if you hit, nicked or missed your opponent or defended, got nicked, or got creamed...as well as other scenarios in conjunction with it.

Attacking is basically made by holding down a direction and pushing a button WHILE holding said arrow key. If you can do that and hit the button when the red gauge fills, you are already a decent player in the game...it is pretty much that simple.

The trick lies to what the arrow keys and button presses do, however.

You can go between simple punching (towards opponent), special attacks (down), defense (backwards from opponent) or powerup/jump (up). After you select the section of what you want to do, you'll charge up and will need to press a button (A,B,X or Y) corresponding to what you want to do. That's 16 combinations, and not counting powerups for certain characters, of things to do in any given moment in real time...provided you have the energy to back yourself up and aren't on the ground crying mommy.

If you're wondering what the red bar means in any of this, it's accuracy. Sure you can jump the gun and try to attack someone to get the upper hand (and this sometimes works, it just depends) but you run the risk of missing and/or taking damage with the speed up.

Very much an under-rated game and it's been an interesting one to get better at over time. Being able to go against 20 opponents back-to-back and only come out with a smallish dent in my health bar...



...is rather satisfying. So is seeing the last guy down on the ground...Sensui's a prick to beat.

Trying something in Mario Party 1. I've been stuck in Mini-Game Island or whatever it's called, for a VERY long time. Simply can't get past the ridiculous Pedal Power and Tug 'O War.

If only there was a way to use my Gameshark to help...

Tetris Plus 2 (arcade cabinet)

8-way joysticks + this game = NO

Puzzle Mode is a credit muncher. "Okay, here's some pieces; placing them in 90% of positions results in instant death", as well as a host of other "this is BULLSHIT" moments.

The ending for the hard-path Puzzle is worth it. Ha, ha, ha.... Secret-hard, not so much. Very dumb.

Oh well, I'll still kick BMF's ass in it even with a four-way joystick

Currently playing TETRIS BUTOU GAIDEN...or otherwise known as Tetris Battle Gaiden on the SFC/SNES.



Can we say, owch?

I've also compiled a decent FAQ of the game in a good seven hour of writing. I'm waiting for GameFAQs to process version 1.0. There's a version 1.1 made here. I finally figured out a few more things that should've been included beforehand.

Haven't played Touhou in 3 days(I need to get back to it!)

Also playing MCKids because it is a good platformer.

I was playing Halo 3 to give it a fair trial. Beat Normal and I can say its nothing special. I'd still play it, but it isn't something I'd say "Wow this is excellent." Halo 1 is still better IMO and even then that isn't as great as many other FPS games out there.

I also need to get back to playing OoA and OoS. Still need to complete them.

I think you only have to beat 3 spells per stage to unlock the next stage. You must have a certain number of spells to unlock EX

Actually, from what I understood, it's three from the previous stage and a certain number of scenes cleared.

I can't beat a single one from 3, so what's the point?

I'm playing... well, everything!

I have to make a save file for all the NES games.

...

Wait, you mean there's a header bit for this?



I guess PHP programming isn't a game, but at least now I have a list of games I can try playing on the PowerPak, heh. (The savefile collection is available on request; 5KB 7z)

Actually, it is 3 from the Previous OR a certain amount. Ify ou cant beat stage 3, not to be mean and all, but it really does get more hell the further you go(I cant beat a single Sakuya/Remilia Stage(DAMN TIME STOPPER)).

I pursued strength in fighters, puzzle-types and RPGs. Didn't have time for shmups. The only thing tolerable for me at all is TSS-like games like PoFV.

Portal from the Half-Life Orange Box on XB360. OMG, I never thought that I would get into this game. Its different and challenging and a bit frustrating when the puzzle is so simple, yet takes forever to figure out.

Just rediscovered Drill Dozer for waiting-time (it's VC-Time in 2 hours), and the extra-levels are hard!

Good thing I have a Game Boy Player, it's easier with a Cube-Pad.

PS: But after an half hour stuck at the same place in the very first part of the level, it's frustrating.

It's been two years since I touched that.

I remember getting through some of the EX levels but never finishing up on them. Think I got all the way to EX level 4 and that was it. Great freaking game nonetheless.
