    Poll: Favorite Metroid Game? (Conditions inside)

    I've only played Super Metroid, Prime 1, and a very small part of Prime Hunters. Prime is probably my favorite as it was probably the most immersive and fun for me

    Poll: What's your favourite game

    It's hard for me to pick ONE favorite game, as the ones I enjoy each do something really well in different ways. These are the games that come to mind for me: Shadow of the Colossus Ico Final Fantasy 9 MGS3 Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee Banjo Kazooie (and Tooie) Ratchet and Clank PS2...

    Forget Nostalgia, Super Metroid Was Embarrassingly Easy

    Ridley was pretty hard for me when I first played through the game. I think I died like five times before finally beating him. Other than that, yeah, the game isn't too tough. But I don't think it really needed to be tough to be as good as it was.

    Best Romance (story) in games?

    While I guess it's not a romance story in the traditional sense, I always did like Wander and Mono from Shadow of the Colossus. Yeah, she's dead, so there's not much actual interaction between the two. But considering what Wander goes through in the game in order to bring her back to life...

    Poll: Is Bloodborne worth getting?

    I'm interested in the game, but I don't want to take the dive just yet in case the game doesn't live up to the hype. I tried asking Gamefaqs, but I figured I'd ask people with a slightly different perspective. I have a few questions to ask before I decide to purchase the game: 1. How's the...

    Is Gaming fun anymore?

    I still enjoy gaming quite a bit. Now though, I tend to avoid the AAA market and focus on more niche titles. Been playing the hell out of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, and despite it's flaws, I'm enjoying it immensely.

    Just about games

    1. Currently playing Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. Pretty nice game. It's a big step up from 3U which was a very good game in it's own right. I'm over 130 hours in and at the end of G3 2. Right now, I'm stuck on the Urgent for G3. Haven't got past him yet. He doesn't seem too hard, it's just...

    Poll: Five Nights at Freddy's - Do you actually find it scary?

    I don't really find the animatronics themselves too scary. However, the idea of having to sit in a tiny room in the dead of night, constantly checking your cameras, lights, and doors for murderous robots for six hours straight all while dealing with a limited power supply is DEEPLY unsettling. I...

    Your 'WOW!' moments in gaming

    When I first played Crash 2. It was my very first game, so I was pretty impressed by it at the time. When I first saw footage of Shadow of the Colossus. I was amazed by how big the colossi were and how you could climb all over them. The music really helped too. Pretty much the majority of...

    Poll: Portal Vs Portal 2

    Hard to choose. There really wasn't much wrong with either of them to be honest. I'd probably have to give the edge to Portal 2 for more content between both the single player and co op campaigns. Also Wheatley.

    Flawed gems

    For me, that would probably be Valkyria Chronicles. I fucking love the game, but I'm not going to deny that it has issues. The grading system is solely based on speed, and it encourages players to just use Defense Boost on a scout or two and just rush to the base camp, kill the guys in...

    Well, that's definitely one of the more bizarre pieces of news I've read recently.

    Valkyria Chronicles is on Steam!

    I respectfully disagree. Early on, yeah, snipers do have pretty low accuracy, but later on, they are a force to be reckoned with. Marina in particular is insane. At high levels, she rarely ever misses. Yeah, I agree. Initially, I was pretty hyped, but there were just so many things wrong...

    Valkyria Chronicles is on Steam!

    Yeah, as much as I love Valkryia Chronicles, there's no denying that the ranking system is inherently flawed to say the least. However, it is entirely possible to get all the A ranks without using orders. Either way though, it's more fun just to play the game the way you want to. Hell, the...
