Thanks, Diss! I'll be sure to get that then. On that note, have you any experience with the SNES entry of Ogre Battle?

More Paper Mario (finally have more time to play), though I did play some Military Madness for the heck of it the other night; Sure, it's basically Advance Wars Lite, but still fun, and it has some addictive retro music, to boot.

On a less happy note, I have to shop on ebay for a genesis to 32X connector if I hope to use the 32X again. Yes, the 32X gets a lot of flak, but it actually has 3 games I consider to be some of the best, and not to be missed: Virtua Fighter (Actually runs BETTER than the Saturn version of the same game!), Virtua Racing (Not as many features as the Saturn Version, but you can't argue with the faster loading times), and Knuckles Chaotix (One of the best looking and sounding Sonic games ever created, it rightfully earns its title that Gamefan gave it back in the day: Sonic CD Part 2; though unlike Sonic CD, the special stage in Chaotix is not nearly as infuriating :lol:).

Anybody else here have systems that weren't as popular? I've got a 32X, Virtual Boy, and Saturn...

My cousin's Xbox One came back from repairs so I have to relearn Killer Instinct after about 2 months of not being able to play it.
Though it only took about an hour to get back into the grove of playing Sabrewulf.

I loved Eternal Sonata, but there was so much they could have done better. The polish was so wonderful that it made me wish the game had more substance.

I like the "Sly" series for Ps2,and also the new title for Ps3.
I like it because the story,lots of the main character and the little splice of irony.
The developer of the trhee first titles of the game is the producer of Sucker Punch.I don't remember who produced the sequel.

GTA Online isn't all it's made out to be.

Maybe it's because I'm playing on PS3, but servers are sparsely populated and rarely does anything interesting happen. The only job that ever fills up is Rooftop Rumble, for obvious reasons.
As a result of this strange desertedness, only hackers and people who have been around through the bug-fest that was the launch have enough money to afford anything big, and only the most ardent of grinders get the good guns and vehicle upgrades.
I still ride on a barely customized Double-T because that's the fastest thing I can afford. No armor, EMS 1 only, wheels and paint. No one does bike races so I can't get much further than that. None of my friends play PS3 either, so grinding parties are pretty much out of the window.

I see people playing on Xbox and having the time of their lives, and here I sit barely experiencing anything. Why is GTA Online so dead? Why does it have to be? Is it platform bias? Is there something wrong with the PS3 servers that is spreading players thin? What is it?

As for the GTA stuff, absolutely no clue dude. Still playing the Xbox version I can confirm that their is still a good number of people playing and its not just youtubers. However both sides have lost a significant number of players and the reason for that is hiests. Which is the main reason a lot of people wanted to play and everyone has gotten tired of waiting for them long ago.

On another subject, I'm really excited for the Smash Bros 4 invitational tournament. I will finally get a chance to see if the game has wave-dashing, L-canceling, and all that other stuff I care about. Because if they're actually inviting good players they will try it. So I'll know whether it exists based on if I see it or not.

At work again, though I've been alternating Paper Mario and my replay of Phoenix Wright 3. Wish I wasn't so sick, though...fell asleep out of pure exhaustion while cross-examining Dahlia Hawthorne. :S

On a lighter note, I found a bunch of my old CDs the other day, yet noticed they were all in the wrong cases. I never was very good at organization, but then I realized the reason why I found all these out-of-place CDs in one area: Monster Rancher! I haven't played that game in years...and I remember my cousin and I spending entire afternoons going through stacks upon stacks of CDs, looking for rare monsters (I still remember our greatest triumph...finding a Metal Jell on a CD for a musical). It's so funny, looking back on what was so popular back in the day. Granted, raising monsters is still fun, but it's hardly at the peak of its popularity like before.

Yes! I had admittedly given up hope that Ike would be back, so Shulk or no (though I too thought he'd be a great addition), I'm glad they kept the "heavy swordsman" moveset in the game!

I think it's a forgone conclusion that Pac Man is going to be in the game. Despite other characters from Namco Bandai I would have preferred to play as (Lloyd Irving, Nightmare, Klonoa, etc.), I suppose it's better if they go for a more widely-recognized character.

I'm still hoping for Ray 01, Dixie, Krystal, Simon Belmont, and possibly (though unlikely) Shantae.

Having a lot of CD games had the awesome bonus of having a lot of unique Monster Rancher monsters. I think I found at least 5 S Class monsters, and the awesome Phoenix on one of them ~ A music Cd.

Also, I'm back to playing Pokémon Y again. Anyone have a Shinx/Luxray?

I don't think I've gotten this angry at a single-player game in a long time.

The boulders are what get ya. In Dino Run: Marathon of Doom, it's ALWAYS the boulders. The SMALLEST of them still stop you completely in your tracks. What's worse, about 130K pixels away, you have to go through a whole FIELD of the things. Some are barely the size of your head, others are as big as a Brontosaur's body. All of them are incredibly infuriating to get around in their own way.

And don't get me started on the angry Pterodactyls. Combined with boulders they're all the game needs to send anyone into a downward spiral of emotional turmoil.

And yet, when you finally win the stupid thing, you feel relieved. You beat it. You finally defeated the Marathon of Doom.

You exit back to the menu...

"Medium Challenge Completed"

...

If I never see this game again, it'd be a million years too soon.
