  1. [color=darkred]I've been listening to more and more video game music lately. Namely Mega Man, I don't know why. I never thought the music in that game was great.[/color]
  2. [color=darkred]I didn't come up with my user name it came up with me. kgudbye[/color]
  3. [color=darkred]I usually finish most games that I start because I don't fall into the trap of buying loads of them at the same time. The only one that comes to mind is Kingdom Hearts because my brother spitefully deleted my file to get back at me for something, which he did a lot of. I eventually saw the ending at a friend's house, though. Edit: Oh, and FFX-2. That game was crap.[/color]
  4. [quote name='James'][font=franklin gothic medium]Other than that, I never had much of a problem. I actually found it enjoyable to find all the coins, especially on the Honey Hive Galaxy (at least I think that's the name, haha). It surprises me because I never liked the red coin or 100 coin challenges in Super Mario 64.[/font][/QUOTE] [color=darkred]That sucks too, but it wasn't such a big deal anyway. It's not like those levels were usually very long, and at least you'd know where the coin is.[/color]
  5. [color=darkred]In all honesty, the Purple Comet levels are more fun than frustrating. I think it only gets frustrating when you're in the situation where you need to find that last one or two of a hundred even though you think you've searched the level inside out already.[/color]
  6. [color=darkred]I've got all 121 Stars with Mario [spoiler]and Luigi[/spoiler]. The game is so incredible that I had to see it out to the end. The [spoiler]Purple Comets[/spoiler] have to be one of my favourite parts of SMG, especially the timed levels such as [spoiler]Luigi's Purple Coins[/spoiler]. I guess it's SMG's answer to SM64's and SMS's having to collect 100 normal coins in a level to get a Power Star for that one world, which I always found boring. But the cool thing is how Nintendo have tried to make the game as user-friendly as possible without removing any depth from the gameplay. In that particular level, at first I thought I had to collect all of the coins, but I late discovered by reading the sign that only 100 of the 150 were required, which is a far more reasonable task. Then again, the game's difficulty goes up a notch when playing as [spoiler]Luigi[/spoiler], and he gets real frustrating to use at times. My favourite level to play in is the volcano themed world because there's usually so much going on at one time. Things like trying to jump across a small lava pit to get a [spoiler]Purple Coin[/spoiler] whilst also trying to avoid a mini eruption, or wall jumping at the same time as dodging the harmful smoke that spews out of them. [spoiler]I was disappointed with the Grande Finale level though. I seriously thought I was in for a huge, bombastic level which incorporated a lot of the elements of SMG overall, but was I wrong.[/spoiler] Nonetheless, I love the music in that stage.[/color]
  7. [color=darkred]Wow, you can charm the pants off any girl with that line. Then again I can think of at least 43 other things I could do with a girl that doesn't include Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Two player Target Smash sounds pretty neat though.[/color]
  8. [color=darkred]Otakuboards hasn't really affected me as such. As far as posting and stuff goes, I've always used proper sentences and grammar, but only because I'm way OCD and when I do something I like I like to do it properly (and no, I don't proof-read my posts). I guess I have gained some experience points from it though; I learn a lot reading random threads and The Lounge sometimes brings up current event topics that I never knew were happening, and I can type very quickly now... in fact, if it wasn't for OB I wouldn't have much reason to type on a computer at all. Plus, being a staff member gives you responsibility -- it's not a big job, but you still have to give it your best. So yeah, these here OtakuBoards can be a real eye opener.[/color]
  9. [color=darkred]Eh, I played Final Fantasy III DS and got bored enough to return it the next day despite its good reviews. It wasn't a bad game, it's just pretty much the same formula. I don't know how different the battle system for this game is but I heard it will be a lot bigger than FFIII's in general which should provide a larger scope for good things to happen, hopefully.[/color]
  10. [color=darkred]I'm here because I got hooked on the Arcade, or as it was called back then, Play It. In my opinion it's the number one place on the web to chat about video games because everyone has a proper opinion on something no matter how trivial the issue is. Then again, I think all of OB is like that as well.[/color]
  11. [color=darkred]Despite the Christmas rush I managed to get my hands on a Wii just last Monday and I love this game! I'm at 102 Stars, having completed the game around two days ago, and I can already say that it's the freshest thing I have played in ages, and that's a huge relief for me. I honestly haven't had this much fun playing a game since Tales of Symphonia in 2004 (for lack of funds, that is). The graphics are incredible, and I adore the shiny glimmer that Mario has. But even more so than that, seeing enemies return from the 2D era in full 3D mode brought back a sense of nostalgia that I thought was gone forever. I mean, fair enough there are the Goombas and those odd caterpillars, but then there were the ones that took me by surprise, such as those round purple things with the orange spikes from the later stages of Super Mario World. I can't argue with the controls at all. Everything is smooth and coherent and makes for excellent gameplay, although it's a little bit frustrating when swimming, but it's not so bad as to make it unplayable. As for the camera angles, I can see where some of you are coming from, but truthfully, it has never hindered my game. There are those odd lapses where it'd be nice to have a little more freedom in that respect, but I usually just switch to the first person mode to get a better view of the area I'm having trouble with. The power-ups rock, but unfortunately flying suffers from the same issues as swimming, though I am yet to use the ability for a proper cause. I just use it to get around the Observatory quicker.[/color] [quote name='James'][font=franklin gothic medium][spoiler]I've also enjoyed looking for the green stars. Only found one so far, but you know what they remind me of? They make me think about those areas in the 2D games where you'd be rewarded for "breaking the level". I [i]love[/i] that you can actually discover unmarked places and "break the levels" in Super Mario Galaxy. [/spoiler][/font][/QUOTE] [color=darkred]It's very interesting that you should say this, because I personally got the same feeling from the [spoiler]Green Stars[/spoiler] as I did from unlocking the Special zone in Super Mario World all those years back (apart from the manta ray level, which just reminded me of Super Mario Sunshine). The feeling that it's a reward for the player for kicking so much ***. I also get a Super Smash Bros. vibe in some cases, like when you enter a Prankster Comet stage, it kinda reminds me of the "New Challenger" screen, or sometimes how the music plays whilst you're on a planet. But, nevertheless, I'm enjoying this game so much. I will finish it completely, and then do it all again [spoiler]with Luigi[/spoiler]. I got a Wii mainly for this game, and I'm not disappointed.[/color]
  12. [quote name='Desbreko'][color=#4B0082]Load times mainly. The PS1 collections have horrible, horrible load times. They also have opening and ending CG cutscenes but that hardly makes up for it.[/color][/QUOTE] [color=darkred]It's true. The load times are so bad on Anthology that I just stopped playing it because it got ridiculous. Long loading times from saving and loading up a game are understandable, but when it takes you ten seconds to get into the menu alone, then that's taking the piss.[/color]

But getting one at this time of year is so damn hard because Christmas grannies want to get them for their Lego-Star-Wars-FIFA-Streets-playing grand kids. Real gamers should have priority.[/color]
  14. [color=darkred]I'm glad to hear that the game is being received so well. I've finally made up my mind on getting a Wii thanks to this game, so the next time my pay check comes in I'll own one. I look forward to posting up my comments about it.[/color]
