Just don't try to do it with your bare hands, unless you want broken hands, which would be pretty damning when the police come knocking. Then again, it doesn't sound like you have a whole lot left to do on the outside so prison might be a nice change of pace?

your life rules right now. perhaps you could light a fire in the fireplace and sit down with loved ones reminiscing about old times.

i always like to pass the time sorting and organizing. not cleaning really, but like cataloging things. i sometimes take it upon myself to alphabetize my friends game and movies collections because the ocd in me is a nice guy and enjoys doing it and also because i'm a fucking tool. unless you're already a pretty neat and organized guy, in which case...i dunno. listen to old records. i've started going back through my CD collection recently and listening to every one i own from a-z. unless you don't own any, try that. it's fun to sit down and just listen to an album.

I know how you feel right now Eggman. I too have nothing to do, and all I've really been doing for the past few months is work/applying/interviewing for new work. I mean, I didn't lose a popular entertainment game system, so it's not quite the same... But I haven't had the money to spend on a new video game for about half a year, so I can kinda feel you with the boredom part. I really wish I didn't bring my N64 home this christmas. I could be playing Pilot Wings 64 or Mario 64 right now if I didn't! Haha...

I hope your system gets fixed soon so you don't have to be bored for too much longer. ;_; Being bored really does suck. I'd take a 60-80 hour work week over a 0 hour work week any day of the week.

Too much shit to buy. No More Heroes (well, maybe - I watched the Real Ending on Youtube and it's retarded), Fragile (Motoi Sakuraba), PS3 + Disgaea 3 (Uh, it's Disgaea 3), Baroque (Atlus), FES (FUCK YES), Brawl (I guess you're legally required to own this if you have a Wii), and I already preordered the Limited Edition of Mana Khemia. NISA will probably announce Ar tonelico II sometime soon too.

Maybe I'll just buy a Wii modchip and download everything. But then I still have to buy a PS3. Fuck.

Do you typically watch the endings to games before you buy them I can see this leaving you unsatisfied with many games

Also I hope they sell FES as the append disc so I'm not required to buy the entire game again for it. As if, I know.

Hey, I watched the ending of Persona 3 without playing the game and it sucked! I mean, I wasn't even nearly moved to tears nor did it appear to be anything more than a cliche anime wrap-up ending.

Translation: watching the ending of the game without having played it is pretty damned dumb because you lose its entire context. I mean, if you jumped to the end of Return of the Jedi to see Luke and Vader team up to beat the Emperor without watching any of the other movies you'd be all what's this cheesy shit? This movie sucks!


I could perfectly imagine how stupid the ending would seem without the rest of NMH under your belt.

Honestly, Moogy, if you didn't like the ending for No More Heroes, I can only assume that you have basically zero sense of humor and the entire game would be a let down because Travis Touchdown is an affront to who you wish to be. Don't ever play it because I don't need to hear you bitching.

Now I wanna play that game.

I watched it at Xythar's house for a bit, and it looked pretty cool, albeit boring inbetween missions. But the missions themselves seemed pretty cool, and I guess some of the money builder missions were pretty cool too. I wonder how much more it's gonna suck not being able to get the gore in the US version? :<<<<< JPN sucks lately with all of their censoring and stuff. First they censor out the boobies in God of War, now they censor out BLOOD?! WHAT IS THE COUNTRY COMING TO!?!?

hahaha oh snap

I'm starting to see why nobody bought it at the Akihabara launch event now.


I had no idea what was going on for the entire last part of the game, but it was pretty cool. The last few boss fights were amazing. I do think the game has a bit too much filler between the missions because I guess they didn't have enough time to add more content to it, though. Still the missions are awesome enough to make up for that.

I also had to do that scorpion mission two more times because I had to silver it to open up assassination mission 18 which is like the only one you can make decent money on sad.gif Even then I didn't have the patience to get enough money to buy the last energy saving upgrade. Just getting the Mk3 and enough money for the final fee took long enough.

So after not going to game stores for like a month I step into Geo to see what is new and end up buying like 14,000 yen worth of stuff on impulse >_>

Specifically DDR Supernova 2 JP (because I've been largely ignoring the arcade release but I'm kind of interested in playing through a home version on controller or something to see all the new music and such), God Hand because it was on sale and is apparently good, Stepping Selection (because 280 yen is a small price to pay for the best dancing game ever) and:



Came out today apparently, and it wasn't really all that expensive (4,700 for the limited edition compared to 3,700 for the regular), so why not. I hope I'm allowed to play it even though I never owned the original! :/

In one of my regular fits of classic gaming, I'd like to draw everyone's attention to Home Alone for the Genesis.


Now you might be expecting some crappy platformer based off of a bad movie that may or may not have destroyed the life of a child star, but you'd be wrong...

You start on your motor-powered sled in an overhead map of a neighborhood with 5 differently themed houses. All you have to do is protect at least one of these houses for 20-40 minutes (depending on difficulty) from the burglers that occasionally show up to burgle things. While they're not in a house you can visit it to set traps and find weapon components. If they're in a house, you have to drive them off by inflicting enough PAIN to them before they rob all the safes in the house and flood the place (this is all done in 2D platformer sections). Here comes the innovative part of the game and the battle of managing ammo:

In order to inflict pain to the burgling burglers, you can shoot them with your BB gun (that has limited ammo and does little pain) or you can MacGyver yourself better weapons with items found throughout houses or buried in snowmen outside. Every weapon is made up of a platform, operator, and ammo. You've got to find the right combination (Normal mode will do it automatically, but Expert has extra parts not found otherwise). Some examples are Crossbow + Wire + Hot Coals = Hot Coal Rifle, Blow Dryer + Balloons + Glue = Glue Bazooka, or Scoop + Rubber Bands + Rope = Rope Launcher. Each weapon has it's own firing mechanics, damage, stun times, and ammo counts. Platforms and operators last forever, but ammo is limited.. oh so limited.. and will be your biggest challenge. About the only thing in your favor is that you can cannibalize previously built weapons for parts, and try to rearrange them into another configuration that uses a different ammo if you run out. Also the houses never respawn items, but the snowman outside do.. it's a shame that burlgers burgle faster while you're outside of the house they're in. It makes things hectic towards the end of a 40 minute game when you run out of ammo and they've nearly sacked a house.


So yeah.. anyhow.. fun game. Just throwing it out there. btns.gif

From what little I heard about the game, people seemed to think the PS2 could've handled it. Granted people are wrong a lot of the time, but in this case I'll trust them.

Rez HD is cool if you don't have your PS2 and Rez. Otherwise it's like, exactly the same. Except I noticed some sound loading errors, especially in "THE MIND IS A KILLER", which was really a bummer. I also found it a lot easier, as I almost no-hit cleared it. I was able to beat the last boss in baby mode. For some reason I can't turn on trance vibration. Maybe that's an unlockable thing? I want it though! :OOO!!!

edit -- Maybe it was easier because I was playing normal game and not the single segment run. The single segment run is always harder. :/ Already way hard and I'm only on level 3. Oof.
