DK Country and Monster Hunter Tri

Global Defence Force.

Fighting enemies that are much bigger than you is awesome!

As Dudersaper warned me, the frame-rate is a bit stuttery when there are multiple foes on-screen (The first time i encountered this was 2 seconds into the very first stage), but that just gives you incentive to kill them faster! More dead = better frame-rate!

Haven't got the hang of the vehicles yet, i tend to crash them almost immediately, but better on foot anyway!

It's the type of game that makes you go "RRAAAAARRRR" as you're playing it. :D

:lol: That's one way to see it.

I knew you'd like the game :D

There's a sequel on the 360 and PS3 that I'd love to play, the more giant alien killing the better :D

Giving Xenogears and Eve Burst a break for now. Getting into Ever 17 for the PSP (playing it on the Vita).
#358 Posted by logicalfrank (1641 posts) -

I started Klonoa 2 for GBA over the weekend. It's better than the first one and the first one is damn good.

In terms of retro gaming I've been playing some Yoshi's Story on my n64, :D

Banjo-Kazooie on N64. Up at Mad Monster Mansion, on my way to 100%...will 100% Banjo Tooie afterwards.

I recently picked up Etrian Odyssey and plan to give it a go soon. Havent played anything terribly retro in forever.

Beat Ni no Kuni last night. If I don't end up with Dead Space 3 by the weekend, I'll most likely waste it on Ever 17 (written by the guy behind DS's 999). Eventless weekend ahoy.

It's funny you should bring Ever 17 up because I've been playing it a lot over the last few days. I'm 15 hours in and have completed one arc (bad ending, naturally). Personally I feel the pacing is really painfully slow (it doesn't get going until around 10 hours in) but it must be doing something right if it kept me soldiering on.

Been playing some Pokemon Stadium 2 with my girlfriend lately.

#367 Posted by jun_aka_pekto (16154 posts) -

Replaying Hard Reset on Hard with EX mode (I kept my stuff and uprades when I played it in Normal Difficulty). I'm getting slaughtered if I start from scratch.

Oh. Legacy.....

I was playing Stratego earlier

Pokemon LeafGreen, and I started New Super Mario Bros. 2 which I got the other night.
#369 Posted by rubber-chicken (2070 posts) -
Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem for the GameCube. It's good, but it hasn't aged well. The combat and sound effects are pretty cheesy, and the sanity effects so far haven't really creeped me out. You know that it really doesn't affect your character, and the character's reaction is pretty lame. :P

I'm playing Homefront on my Xbox360. Working on the campaign on Guerilla difficulty and all the collectibles. On my Nintendo DS I'm still in Pokemon: White. Grinding the levels of my Pokemon before I travel further after the Elite Four League.

I am about to start an All Cup Tour on Mario Kart Double Dash. Then I need to beat Turtles in Time on snes.
#373 Posted by Eric_Drav3n (2729 posts) -

Replaying Suikoden 3. After that I'll probably play Suikoden 5 again and just skip the 4th one. I dunno, I only played Suikoden 4 one time but I really hated it. Maybe I should try it one more time.

#374 Posted by BarbaricAvatar (977 posts) -

Unreal Tournament (1999) - Online fraggery has never been better. The proof being it's just as much fun in 2013 as it was in 1999.

Last night i ran an Instagib server, tonight i'm going to surprise my friends with traditional UT weapons, because they need the practice. :D

-

On the PS2 am still playing when time permits:

Global Defence Force - The fun still hasn't worn off even after 50 missions.

Valkyrie Profile 2 - Need to gain another 5 levels before i will attempt the endgame boss again, battle was a bit one-sided last time.

Gran Turismo 3 - New career where i've forbidden myself from buying suspension, tyres and brake upgrades. All races are spent mostly sideways! :D

#375 Posted by CyberneticGlion (50 posts) -

Right now I'm playing Gears of War and Metal Gear Solid 2.

Almost done with the former and I just started the latter.

Chrono Trigger on Wii Virtual Console. I played it way back when it was a new game. But it's been quite a while. I've just started and I'm really liking it, so far. I've forgotten enough about it after this much time that it's almost a new experience again.

#378 Posted by Exceed20XX (1030 posts) -

Finished Policanauts during my time away from here and will probably resume my Haunting Ground playthrough during free time later. I'm already more than halfway through that.

#379 Posted by thecrypticodor (192 posts) -

Playing Lunar Silver Star Story on my first playthrough about to attempt the Black dragon cave. Such an incredible and beautiful awesome awesome game.

Donkey Kong Country Advance. Elements of this version were dummies down, apparently.

I've not played 999, but I did finally finish Ever 17. All I will say is for the love of all that is holy, keep slogging through the slow parts on the first few play-throughs because the reveals and plot twists in the last arc are...well, mind-bendingly brilliant.
#387 Posted by Exceed20XX (1030 posts) -

Ended up putting Haunting Ground on hold again for Snatcher which I'm midway through. Meanwhile to those discussing Ever17 is there more than a single English release? I know the PC one is a pain to find and I've been interested in it since finishing 999 as well.

It's funny. The Japanese version of the game is on practically everything but the English one doesn't even have a digital reprint as far as I know. You would think at least someone would have made a smart-phone version of it or something.
#390 Posted by NaveedLife (17179 posts) -

Dark Souls PC edition

When playing with others either BF3 or Torchlight 2

I've been trying to find a cheap copy of this for a while w/ no luck. Compared to the Mario GBA ports, they seem to get considerably worse reviews. It also seems like the graphics are way worse, but that is based on me watching YouTube videos so who knows.

Well it is a niche appeal still I guess... Oh well, I'm up for another challenge having taken down Snatcher. I've heard nothing but good things about Ever17 so chances are it may become my next main target. Sounds like you enjoyed it overall as well.

Upon closer inspection there is a smart-phone Japan only version of the game...if the game is already ported and an English translation already exists it boggles the mind as to why no one would slap it up on an app store. VNs are one of the few genres that actually work well on a phone!

Treasures of the Deep (PS1)

It's good to be back! Was one of my fav PS1 games back in the day, and still great today.

I got it bundled with the Micro. I haven't finished it yet but I've noticed some changes. Some are annoying presentation things, while for gameplay the mine cart sections are much easier. The visuals feel different. It doesn't look bad though, but that could be because I'm playing it on the micro. The changes are less annoying(so far) vs the Mario remakes, IMO. I'm not sure what you consider cheap. I payed around $80 for the micro, two faceplates, DKC, a system case, AC adaptor, and a Pokemon game(which I can't seem to get to work). ...if you like DKC for everything it's about it's really great on the micro. You were right, the micro is pretty great. I think it's my favorite portable now, even more than the trusty sp. the faceplate system is genius.

Final Fantasy 2...breezed through the original game but I don't like the leveling system in the second so I haven't picked it up lately.:(

There is also a remake for the 360 that features 3D character models instead of drawn-characters (though the general consensus is that the characters look creepy and like they have dead eyes). The 360 version apparently has a lot of content edited out or shortened in response to criticisms that the original story dragged and repeated a lot in the beginning. Funnily enough there is no PS3 version.
