@MegandDia128 - Viva Pinata bored me pretty quickly, but you can tell it's a Rare game just by the graphics for it, and it has that same cartoony feel to it as alot of Rare games usually do. And no I haven't FFXIII, I'm still going to wait till' the price drops a bit more, I'm a cheapskate lol.
1. Skate (X360)- 7.5 (The first time I played this I had borrowed it from my Brother, and loved it, so I bought a copy for myself)
2. Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 (X360) - 7.0
3. Viewtiful Joe: Red Hot Rumble (GC) - 6.9 (I re-bought this after my incident with those idiots at GameStop)
4. Viva Pinata (X360) - 8.3
5. Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars (X360)- 8.7
Good News: I saved $7.70 on these games with my Edge card. Bad News: I haven't started any of them.
I've started a couple new games this month: Shenmue 2 and Syberia, both great games, but the former is better to me. I beat The Bard's Tale, which was a pretty good game, definitely clever, the whole game had a sarcasm about it for almost the entire time, and I loved that, the story was quite cliche, but the game actually embraced it (in a humorous manner of course). The snarky or nice comment thing that you could use was ok, but it could have been used a bit more often, and also could have beenbroadened out to have more of an effect on the game as a whole. Also I played Civilization 3 and loved it, I actually thought it was hard to win (probably on account of me playing through 5 different campaigns and always retiring), none-the-less it is an amazing strategy game, definitely a classic. So you guys can be expecting a review for The Bard's Tale, I haven't written one in a while because it takes me quite a while to write them, because I want it to be good, as for Civ. 3 I'll probably just rate it.
Also, I'd like to tell you guys that after this blog I will be making some changes to my blogging, but only to my Gaming Updates blogs, which will now have more zing and pep (one way will be by changing the traditional styled title and taking a more modern, hip, and cool approach ), and will cover more subjects than just games. So everyone, that is it, and......hm, I should think of a really cool phrase to end with.....how about: Over and Out? Tat Ta? Blog Ya' Later? Suggestions?No,I'm serious, suggestions.
Nice to see you back on Square. How is Viva Pinata does i follow the other rare platform style. Suggestions. You haven't played FFXIII yet have you
Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition for adventure games. Star Ocean IV is fine. Wouldn't mind to play it to the end of the 3rd DVD.
Nice purchase man really nice You will have to let me know what you think of the Legend of Dragoon as soon as you play it. Just to recap on what I think of it. in top 10 of favoriter RPGs one of my most loved Classics, Received a perfect 10 in my book.
PS2. I like large screens. I had to download Opera 10 browser to get on Gamespot again. Firefox was on the fritz.
Viva Pinata is AWESOME, alot of people would ignore it because they say it looks kiddy but it's not at all, it's sooo much fun!
@BigBangWiscite - I'd go with The Lost Frontier, I've been waiting for that game for a while, let's hope it's good, it wasn't developed by NaughtyDog you know. Just curious, which system would you play it on if you got it?
I own Tiberium Wars. Shenmue II was confusing like the original. It was fascinating that the original cost so much which is why I got it for 20 bucks at a thrift shop. Which game should I buy, Capcom vs. SNK for $30 for Dreamcast or Jak IV: Final Frontier for $30. Dark Daxter sounds like a neanderthal, because they thought of a neanderthal designing them. The review said Hulk, but we all know it is really neanderthal! Political correctness with Gieco adverts. Which game?
Yes I have played Civ 4, and didn't like it much. I never really understood what was going on on the map: too many features, too many technological advances occuring all the time. I felt like a confused spectator, rather than a player. Maybe it takes time for someone to get used to it. I don't know, maybe it's just me, but I prefer Civ3.
@Rheinmetal - I loved all the songs in The Bard's Tale, "Beer beer beer, tiddly, bear bear beer..." Also, have you played Civ. 4? I was just wondering I haven't played it yet. Oh and I loved the Fin idea, I'll probably use that thanks. @Aidan129 - Heh heh, do you have over 50 game that you haven't played yet? :D
Well hopefully you'll get to play your games soon. I've gotten some great deals with my Edge Card before. You can't go wrong with used game. ;)
I've been real bad about buying games and not starting them, too. I got KH: 358/2... haven't opened it. I got Borderlands... barely touched it. I got a few other games that I haven't even taken out of the shrink wrap yet :roll: Once I beat Mass Effect (again) I'll hopefully get to one of them :lol: And I've gone through my blogs to see if I had a phrase to end my blogs with. And I don't. I end almost every blog differently. :lol:
Hm, a tag line for SquareEnixFan13: "Til Next Time, Stay Square." "Til Then, Peace and Squareness Forever." " Bē " "Insert Sweet Tag Line Here" "Peace, And Don't Feed The Animals" I only have Viva Pinata, it's...nifty but kinda psychadelic?
"It's bad luck to be you". I love that song! :D I'm glad you liked Civilization 3. It's by far, my favourite Civ game. It's easy and very addictive to play, but I agree it's too difficult to master it. Myself, I never scored a very high score, but I always enjoyed it to the maximum! End with: "Fin", like the French movies
I like C&C 3,Viva Pinata,and the original Viewtiful Joe a lot. Shenmue 2 is one of my top 5 favorite games because I like it's spirituality and I loved travelling through the rural parts of China and exploring the city environments in Shenmue 2 is fun too.
