Not trolling, as Sonic CD blows it away, as well as all the other Sonic games on sale right now, save Sonic 2 and Sonic 3

i read it and he had some good points but at the end of the day getting sonic games for 160 mp kind of negates all negative reveiws. IMO

If you're referring to Crono-00's post then yes, yes I did. Thoroughly. In fact I watched his links too. Rather enjoyed the Street Fighter Alpha fights as well as the horrid developer commentary/trailer for Girl Fight (though some of those mechanics look interesting in terms of updating the fighting game genre - invisibility, the added damage vs. taking health loss trade-off of the fire). Anyways one of my favorite things to do with my week is reading what Crono-00 has to post. If you don't like it may I recommend just using the scroll button on your trackpad or mouse. It takes all of 4 seconds once a week to do it. I'm sure you can afford that. Obviously you had enough time to make this short post. And clearly you don't have any idea what trolling means as it's about trying to sow discord to start arguments and upset people. As someone said it's a shame that you feel that someone having an opinion and a fair one or educated one at that is trolling. That's very sad on your part.

Anyone know if SEGA patched the controls in NiGHTS? I'm looking for a reason to get back to this game and finish it up at 100%.

 

btw Looks like new XBLA bundle is coming:

They did in fact release a patch to fix the controls. I think that's one of their only XBLA games that had a fundamental flaw and they actually fixed it.

I'm gonna be the one to say it, but Sonic Generations is the only game that just gets progressively worse. I loved the first third, the second third was okay, and the last third made me hate the game with a passion. The enemies get dumb and the last boss is probably the worst boss I've ever played.

Sonic Adventure -  No one wants to see the "drama" of an 8-year old Rosy the Rascal trying to seduce someone twice her age (Sonic is 16, she's 8 according to the JP Sonic CD instructions), it's okay because they're hedgehogs? ... or because ... Japan.

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedgehog

 

Given the average lifespans of large hedgehogs, it's probably more akin to an 80-year old woman pursuing a 100-year old man.

Looking ahead to next week, is Perfect Dark worth it at 400? I have never played it, but I'll probably leave it alone if it has aged poorly.

I will certainly check out the trial, but I value the opinions around here.

It's aged poorly. Just the AI at the time was amazing, but playing it now it just isn't up to snuff with modern first person shooters. Same with some of the controls and other small problems like how somethings come down to trial and error. I Mean there are some awesome innovations that I wish other games would follow (added objectives and enemies when you switch up difficulties, counter-operative play where you play as Joanna while the other person plays as a grunt with low health and jumps bodies to another enemy once he dies), but playing the game without experiencing it when it first came out makes it a bit harder to forgive how innovative and fun it was at the time.

The four games are ilomilo, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, Lazy Raiders and The Splatters.

I like and own the first 3. Didn't care for The Splatters.

I'll be honest. I never had a N64. The last console I owned before a 360 was a Genesis (or Master System). So I never played Perfect Dark. But I think if you are someone who owned it you likely sunk 100s of hours into it at one point in your life and so you'd be familiar with every single corner in the game and if that's the case then buy it cause you probably want some nostalgia, but if you're like me and this is your first time trying it then be prepared as it's rather an ugly looking and confusing FPS that I sort of regret buying as I can never be bothered to play it. Quite honestly I don't even understand the menu system or how you can wander around your base or really anything about the game. It seems built to alienate people who never picked it up and probably suffers now that I have no proper manual to leaf through. I think N64 ports are just difficult to pull off as let's be frank it was a rather blocky look that to be honest I didn't even appreciate back then. I never really liked 3D games on the N64. And even up-rezed them are kinda fugly. There are better FPS's on the market. But if you are keen to see where they started then try this out. I think the trial is only a few hundred megs anyhow.

Good to know. Oh well, I don't really care much for Sonic so I doubt I'll see the first 1/4 of it. The demo and the price finally persuaded me.

Perfect Dark and Goldeneye were awesome moments in fps history, but are basically unplayable by todays standards. 

 

Speaking of next weeks sales, been playing the demos but can't get a strong impression either way for some. Spelunky has caught my eye for awhile and I really like the demo, that's pretty much a buy. Slowing time in Sine Mora is pretty cool, but the weapons are boring. Is that the kind of shmup that you upgrade between levels or was I just missing the drops? Finally, how is Bloodforge for length and replay value? My bro wants a hack n slasher, and it seems ok, but the demo showcases a lot of gameplay not in the demo. Is there an inventory that you can switch weapons from, or do you have set weapons for certain levels?

 

And btw, what is it people see in Guardian Heroes and D&D? With Scott Pilgrim and Castle Crashers, nostalgia isn't enough to sell a brawler for me. That, and I have emulators when I want to play Double Dragon, Final Fight (Guy or arcade of course), TMNT, Xmen, Combatribes, etc etc.

They're not on a disc. It's a digital collection just like the Twisted Pixel one. It's no different than buying each game individually you just get a better price for buying bulk.

Guardian Heroes is not nostalgia.  It's a solid game.  I missed it on the saturn and the copy I bought on ebay wouldn't play so I finally got to enjoy it on xbla.  It's a great game.  I would much rather play this than either scott pilgrim or castle crashers.  The cpu robot plays along with you so even if you don't play with friends it still kinda feels like it.  The special moves, leveling up and choosing your path make this a game I still fire up occassionally in between working on the backlog. 

 

Try the demo.  Realize that there are a lot of street fighter style moves too (tossing a fireball motion).  I got it last time on sale for 400 and don't feel bad that it's even cheaper now because I've gotten 200 points worth of extra enjoyment owning it this long. 

 

Edit: I was trying to quote maesto but it didn't work.  Whenever the background is white I can't do that for some reason.

Whatever standards you're referring to here, they're completely wrong. Perfect Dark has aged with less grace than Goldeneye has, but they are still better than most of the shit churned out in recent years. Unplayable? Nah, you just forgot how to plug in an N64 controller and have a good time.  :roll:

I read on Major Nelson's site that Black Ops 2 will be on sale next week and that Bioshock Infinite will be available on the dashboard. How much of a discount can we see on BLOPS 2 and the season pass? 50% off on both? Infinite will cost $39.99?

Oh, playing on an n64 might work. But the ports of the controls are jacked up. I had 00 on every mission in goldeneye and used to play it and Mario Kart every single day after school w/ my bro - very fond memories, but that remake was just awful. Most new fpses are lame or terrible, but Half Life dos, Far Cry, Battlefield... these games raise the bar. The fluidity of movement, dual analog stick for moving and aiming, reload animations, cooking grenades.... Like I said man, I loved goldeneye but n64 ports just feel awkward and I think there have been improvments made in the genre over 15 years.

 

I never really played perfect dark much on n64, but I remember not really liking it for some reason. Regardless, saving msp on something you won't play that much isn't really a deal. I'd rather put that towards Gunslinger or Blood Dragon and have fun now.

 

Infinite will cost $39.99?

As long as we're dreaming, I think we should get unicorns and handy js thrown around.

I think we'll see 25/33% off the GonD for BO2.

Season pass is 4000MSP right now, every DLC is 1200 MSP each (2 DLCs already released, one releasing on 2nd july, one not announced yet).

Maybe 2400MSP the season pass and 800MSP each DLC? I'm hoping for a 50% off both season pass and single DLCs, so i can get them cheaper.
