Re: Top Five Recent Games
Surely not as bad as a full-up hentai game, though...
Wait a minute, it's not?

Aaaaaaah, to hell with that, then.

:nervous:

Try running a search on your p2p program of choice for Three Sister's Story, Paradise Heights 2, Runaway City, True Love (and savegames if you can find them, damn game is a killer)...Sentimental Shooting's fun too. Kinda a Galaga/Raiden gone porno thing. Tough to beat unless you figure out which key's the scrollstop. Don't ask me, I've long since forgotten. There's at least a couple of Sailor Moon hentai Solitare decks floating around out there too.

Some of those might not run under WinXP. Runaway City you'll need DOSBox for, Sentimental Shooting remember to turn frameskip on or it locks up. True Love and Paradise Heights 2 work, or at least I think they work.  Three Sister's Story you'll need to dig up an install of Win95, 2000, or Millenium for. You can safely assume anything else you encounter out there on teh intarwebs either isn't translated (like the Viper series) or needs DOSbox/non-XP Windows.

Nothing to see here, folks, move along... :nervous:

Cho Ren Sha
Call of Cthulhu
Dreamfall
Shadow of the Colossus
Something I can't remember

Dreamfall depresses me. It failed as a sequel in nearly every possible way.

it definitely could've gotten by without the 'fighting' in it, it was -really- unneccessary

This is why I havn't bought it yet. Longest Journey is awesome. :(

Re: Top Five Recent Games
Personally, I think its biggest disappointment isn't its painful gameplay, but in fact the story. It's not that it's bad as such, certainly not as far as games go, but it is so poorly narrated compared to TLJ's that the 'main' plot, by the end, seems hardly relevant at all and the emotional impact it's meant to have is all but destroyed. When you get right down to it, it seems that only the very beginning and very end are actually important and everything between it is just a vague side-story. I'm also quite frustrated with Ragnar Tørnquist for turning a potentially awesome (if obvious) character arc into one of the clumsiest moments in the entire game.

It does have its moments, though. It's just very disappointing.

the worst soundtrack in a Lucasarts game ever.
Possibly... but some of the best voiceacting of them all. Roy Conrad was awesome as Ben, making even the most silly line ooze coolness, and I challenge anyone to have recognized Mark Hamill as Ripburger before reading the credits ;) And of course, it had a charging horde of mechanized rabbits with ride of the valkyries playing, which is instant win.

Definitely too short though. Way too short. Good things always are...

Re: Top Five Recent Games
You need to play Ace Combat Zero. The storyline is a little cliche'd (especially near the end) but it's fun as hell.

I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

Having such a hard time getting the FALKEN unlocked, though. I just need to beat Four Horsemen but the game WILL NOT let me destroy the radar stations the way I'm supposed to. :hopping:
