I finally did it.

I finally won 2048, after almost two months of working, and learning, and working further.

...Well, technically I won it's reverse version, 2. But the satisfaction remains.

Now, to move on to 9007199254740992...

So I played a little Playstation All-Stars, and I have to say it brings virtually nothing to the table that Super Smash Bros. doesn't. Basically the only way to KO people is with the equivalent of a Final Smash. Rather than increasing your target's damage %, you increase your own meter, which fills up to level 1 and then 2 and 3. Each level allows you to drain your meter for a stronger "Final Smash" than the last, and they're all one-hit KOs if they can hit.

It just feels so much more awkward and unsatisfying that way.

I played as Sly Cooper pretty much always, if anyone was curious. :P


I haven't played a single Sly Cooper game. i gotta do that someday =P

Sony all stars based it's mechanics off of a very gory fighting game that was once banned on Playstation called Thrill Kill. Digimon Rumble Arena had similar mechanics, but added health bars and digimon evolution bars via evolution orbs. I still have Digimon too, and still love it because of it's awesome voice acting. :3

As for the Metal Gear 2 thing, you can see it here, but you can also hear about it when playing Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence.

Here's the link to the history of the game. http://geekti.me/wp/2012/11/metal-gear- ... r-mondays/


Yes. Ive played Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake. But you said it had been released to NES and I can assure you that it has definitively NOT been released to NES.

I said that Metal Gear, Snake's Revenge and Metal Gear 2 were all popular games when i was growing up. I didn't say it wasn't part of the NES. x3

EDIT: Ok, this was unfortunate for me to find out, but apparantly Metal Gear 2 came out for the MSX in Japan, not the NES like i been reading and hearing all this time. so... *sigh*

Contemplating on whether I should get Persona 3 FES for the PS2, or I should wait until my PSP is fixed so I can get the Portable version. I mean, the Portable version allows you to directly control the other characters during battle, but FES has "The Answer" which continues what happened after Persona 3's canon ending. Ooooor... I should just ditch both and play the second cycle of Persona 4.

Uuugggh... I hate making these decisions. What do you guys think?

As someone who has all of those, I'd say go with Portable. The Answer is insanely hard and not really worth it.

At work, wishing I was playing Paper Mario at home. Forgot how good that game is.

Also, probably picking up Mario Golf today. Anybody else getting in on that?

Hmm, games that I've played lately? Not much actually.

I started playing Kingdom Hearts Re:coded and Final Fantasy The Four Heroes of Light. And both games annoy me greatly, but for different reasons.

Re:coded is definitely the worst game in the Kingdom Hearts series, though it is pretty great at times. The graphics are nice, almost like you're playing on the PS2, and some of the games can be pretty challenging. With that said though, I hate the fact that the game forces you to go through everything and even grind just that you don't die too quickly. And the party game-slash-platform mechanics felt forced too. It's a pain to play through it sometimes.

Heroes is actually a great game, and is in a different streak from the mass-produced main FF games as of late. But the soundtrack.... they annoy me. The echoing synths and the over-reliance on 8-bit flutes and synths just made the whole thing sound lackluster and childish. And the character design. Oh God, each and every one of the main four look so unmotivated and expressionless. I don't mind the chibi style, but at least give them some expression.

I actually enjoy Re:coded WAY more than the original KH. The original was insanely terrible. It was insanely unclear about what to do or where to go. :/

Mario Golf's a lot of fun. Also, SLOWLY making my way through Paper Mario; being super busy kind of hampers my progress ^^;.

Also, one of the youtubers I usually watch mentioned someone in chat who offered an invitation to the open English beta for Phantasy Star Online 2. If it is truly coming stateside, consider me stoked. :D

I have to say, one you get to about Chapter 3 in Dead Space, it gets more calm. They seem to throw all the creepy and terrifying stuff at the beginning. The story line is also great, however some of the controls are tough to use. I definitely recommend it if you are into the jump-scare-horror genre.

If there is any horror subgenre, besides the jump-scare and you-have-no-weapons-and-anyone can-kill-you ones, that can actually scare people, I do not know them.

Yeah, no kidding! Sticker Star LOOKS great, but the actual gameplay mechanics are poorly executed. Backtracking should only be done in a game where there's a decent chance of finding something or somewhere new, like Metroid or Zelda.

Wouldn't surprise me, though Bowser did have a weapon of mass paper destruction in the commercial. :P

Playing Attack of the Friday Monsters in between rounds of Mario Golf and Paper Mario. It doesn't feel like a game so much as a playable work of art. It's a somewhat strange, yet oddly nostalgic and philosophical game that isn't there to be beaten so much as experienced. There's a lot of tiny nods here and there for anyone who's grown up watching giant monster movies, super sentai, or mecha anime. Also, since the player character is a child, just about anyone can relate to the character; spring/summer days out playing with friends, chores from parents, and wildly fantastical or mysterious events being around every corner. A little on the short side, but worth checking out if you're looking for something different.

Playing Final Fantasy XII again. It's surprisingly not as bad as I first played it. It requires a little more patience with the Gambits and the License system but overall it's alright. My only problem though is how Vaan has NOTHING to do with the plot so far. Seriously, the boy's just been tagging along with Balthier and Ashe so far. Even the guest characters have more plot than him.

I've noticed that with a couple of the Final Fantasy "main" characters, some just have nothing to do with the plot, and it seemed to start after FFX, without Titus, the plot would have gone as it was, because for as much has he said it was 'his story' it is Yuna's story. Same with Vaan, I kind of think that's a problem with those games personally :/ XII is, playable. But, I honestly hate X, and Titus being pointless is a big problem I have with it :/

They butchered freaking everything good about Paper Mario. Clever writing? Let's give it virtually zero dialogue. Partners? Nope. Badges! Nah let's get rid of those. In fact, let's get rid of every single option except "Item." Let's flesh items out a little bit, but not enough to make the game interesting or deep.

I also resented Super Paper Mario's drifting from the RPG roots, and found the gameplay kind of dull, but at least the game was really clever and the writing was fantastic.

I totally agree with you...looking back at both the original and TTYD, it's such a great feeling when you meet a new partner, not only because it lets you go somewhere new, but also getting to know your newest traveling buddy. Who could forget Goombario setting out with his idol, Bow's journey to save her people, Koops' quest for confidence, Goombella and her love for archaeology and the countless other stories that you'd bear witness to over the course of the adventure?

Intelligent Systems: "Yeah, replace 'em with stickers!"

Let us hope for a return to the original format. Also with regards to Super Paper Mario, while I found the game somewhat clunky, it is at least playable compared to Sticker Star. I took great pleasure in nicknaming it "Paper Mario: Symphony of the Night" for its gameplay style.

Count Bleck: What is a man?! A miserable little pile of secrets!

Get your act together, Intelligent Systems, and while you're at it, bring back Advance Wars!

On another note, does anyone else remember this game: KAIO: King of Pirates? It was revealed a few years back, and all we know is that it'll be on 3DS, have gameplay similar to Dynasty Warriors, and it's designed by Keiji Inafune, "The Man Behind the Mega." In my opinion, it's intriguing to see anthropomorphic characters in this kind of setting, and with those subtitles, it leads me to believe they're planning a release outside Japan. What do you guys think of the game?

I'm excited about AlphaSapphire and OmegaRuby. The 6th Generation engine is so amazing that I'm sure they can do some great stuff to this game. They just need to be thorough like they were with X and Y, because polish is part of what made those so great.

They won't go back to the series' roots. I think the main reason they've been looking for a new direction is because Paper Mario was too similar to Mario and Luigi. As long as Mario and Luigi is around and continues to be successful, they won't make a traditional Paper Mario, sadly.

In a lot of ways, yes. It has a bit more uniqueness to its engine, though. SMRPG was very much a traditional SNES JRPG in a lot of ways. Paper Mario's engine is more unique, though it keeps the coolest element of SMRPG's engine (the timed button presses).

A shame...while Mario and Luigi is a really good series, I always enjoyed the art style and mechanics of the first two Paper Mario games.

Nintendo Wi-Fi connection officially closes its doors in 10 days, so I'm redownloading everything that got deleted from my memory card now. This...is going to take a while. I'm on page 3 of 17, so that's approx. 175 more games that I have to redownload. :S I'm not sure if the wii shop channel will ALSO be taken down, but why take the risk?

Also, with regards to Paper Mario, it has me wondering why there aren't more licensed character rpgs...or successful ones, at least. Sonic Chronicles could have been quite good, but was poorly executed in some areas. Mega Man has had some success, but the games sadly haven't sold well enough to keep it going. If I could choose any licensed series' that would do well with an RPG spinoff, I'd go with Zelda (some would argue the series is already much like an RPG, but it could go further), Castlevania (Turn-based, with perhaps characters like Sypha, Grant, or Alucard at your disposal), and Kirby (partially inspired by the Kirby 64 adventure...they looked like a good team to make into an rpg party). What do you guys think?

Finished redownloading every wii shop game I'd bought (the transfer to wii-u caused them to be deleted), but now I'm looking to buy the last few gems I can think of before it possibly goes offline permanently.

That said, I'd appreciate some advice on whether any or all of the following games are worth my time:

Ogre Battle (SNES)
Ogre Battle 64
Contra Rebirth
A Boy and his Blob
Bonk's Revenge
Bonk 3
Gradius Rebirth

Thanks in advance!

Ogre Battle 64 is the best video game ever produced.
