Dark Souls, :fiesta_bailando game, so fucking hard.

Skate 3, Halo Reach, Singularity, Max Payne 3

and Panzer Corps for the PC, turned based strategy based off the 1995 Panzer General II game. Classic.

Just paid off my Pre-order for Halo 4 today and bought a copy of The Legend of Zeld: Oracle of Ages. Anybody ever play the Zelda game? Are any of the other Metroid games good for Wii besides The Other M? I'll probably finish it this coming week.

It's really not as hard as people make it out to be at all. As long as you don't play it as if it's G.od of War, you should be fine. All you need for Demon's/Dark Souls is patience. Rushing is never rewarded.

Edit: That w/ord filter is the only one I've ever been annoyed by.

And when I get enough of LoL-immigrants/other gameruiners I'll play some Magna Mundi (Europa Universalis III mod) to have something more slower-paced.

i love it. when i get around to playing it lol. its hard to explain, i find it hard to get motivated to play it, but once i do im sucked in for a few hours. you cant really play it for an hour and then go do something else, its not meant for little short spurts of playing.

oracle of ages is great, i liked seasons better out of the pair but they're both very good. has that classic link's awakening feel, same controls, with a splash more color and updated items with many of the same from LA, and you get a cool pet that helps you reach new areas and stuff. it's really really fun in my opinion.

your opinion isn't worth shit.

I beat seasons played but didnt beat ages. Games were great. I would disagree with the above poster and say your opinion is spot on

I didn't have any trouble with NG+. Just gotta have a good build, gear and weapons. +5 Giant's Armor, Mask of the Mother, Havel's Ring, Cloranthy Ring, +5 Black Knight Greataxe, +5 Silver Knight Shield and +5 asc. pyro glove is a great setup. Pump vit/end/str to 40 and you're good to go (plus 18 dex for BKA).

Almost done with CT. Magus is one of my favorite RPG bosses ever. The entire castle before him/the buildup to his battle is so rad. Might have to finally play Chrono Cross even if it isn't that related to the original (apparently Schala is in it or something?).

I have only played KH1, not sure why because I loved it and there's no reason I shouldve stopped there. I've had a hard time picking up new games lately though, I always go back to the ones i'm used to. are any of the other KH any good? I feel like people are so crazy about them, they have to be decent. The handheld ones seem lame and gimmicky but I could be wrong there too. Something in my head just makes me take a DS game less seriously than a game for PS3 or Wii, like it's meant to be more casual and a really in-depth title would be too big for a DS to handle.

I would recommend staying far away from anything outside of the main games, but that's just my opinion. They add to the story and the universe, but as far as game play goes, levels and combat are just completely rehashed again and again...and again. I've lost count of how many times I've been to Agrabah, Halloween Town and a few others. I'm incredibly annoyed that III might not even be coming out in this generation.

absolutely agreed, the magus battle and build up is some end of the game style shit, and even then it's only half way through. DARK MATTER.

chrono cross is kinda crappy sometimes. the music is great but the character design is ghastly. i owned it for a decade and only finally beat it this year, just cuz i felt i had to. it was worth beating just to say i did. i will never play it again.

Chrono Cross is one of those games that I felt like had a huge payoff once I actually finished it. If you're a Chrono Trigger fan, you'll definitely appreciate it more if you finish it as well. I agree on character design though. Wasn't a huge fan.

I've got the ISO for it on my computer so I think it's probably going to be the next game I play (assuming I decide I don't want to finally play through all of FFVII).

Halo 3 ODST was TERRIBLE.



Aside from that, I got The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages and Links Awakening DX for GameBoy in the mail today. I'm kind of stuck on the part right after you get the shovel from the tower. ATTN: Mew. I don't really want to use a guide.

Also, I'm almost done with The Other M and I just bought Monster Hunter Tri. I just need a keyboard after I get Monster Hunter in the mail and I'm set. My Razer keyboard won't work :(

I just beat Halo Reach on Legendary for the first time and I don't really know what I want to play next. I've just been wasting time on Skyrim trying to get all the dragon priest masks. My friend let me borrow Halo 2 the other day, but it is not as fun as I remember it being.

I've been thinking about trying to beat the Gears of War series on insane, but I haven't played 1 or 2 since my last account was banned and I don't know if I want to beat them once just to unlock the hardest difficulty and then try to beat them again.

I dont really think any halo game is that great. I think they are worth playing for the pop culture value. I originally didnt even put odst on my list until a well respected gamer I know said he liked odst best out of all of the 360 halos. I beat 3 and reach
edit and I hated 2 the most. that ending what a piece of shit. the first one is the best.
