  1. [color="#000080"][font="Franklin Gothic Medium"][size="2"]Okay, as you all know I've always been a big fan of MMORPGS for most who know me around OB for the past several years. I was mod of PC/MAC lounge during the day and tried to create the MMORPG listings so we could all find eachother. For many, WOW was their first mmo, however with me it started back in 05' with TSO & SWG was the first one that got me really hooked. If your like me, you burnt out from WOW a long time ago, hoping for the next big thing. I wanted to discuss what mmorpg you are looking FORWARD too and what aspects of game play are you most into. Is it the PVP? The arenas? The player economy? Crafting? Socializing? What keeps you interested in these games so long? For me it has always be the aspect of feeling of actually being in a diff world, socialize aspect, and roleplaying played a big part as well. The community kept me longer in the game then battles did. Anyways, the two biggest games I wanted to talk about were [b]SWTOR[/b] a star wars related game and [b]FFXIV[/b] a new and improved FF mmo. While I didn't really get into the old FF mmorpg, they have made this game completely different style. I love how they are going to elaborate on housing, and other things for the economy. SWTOR, I enjoyed SWG and hope it will have a vast galaxy that you can explore in as well. So my question goes to you what game are you most looking forward too? You can check up on the latest MMORPGS at mmorpg.com. Hopefully we can get something together so maybe we can meet up!! [/font][/size][/color]
  2. http://3dnes.blogspot.com/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3ow0dZDbMM I'd kill for a Zelda game like this.
  3. Fairly simple What are some of the games you found to be difficult / overly challenging? What made them so difficult? If you could, would you change anything (outside of the difficulty level) to make it a less painful experience? (I think that's what I'm going for lol) As for me I don't really play games to look for that challenge these days. I've lost my competitiveness a long time ago. I mainly play games to relieve stress or anger. But there were a few games that I thought were pretty hard during my first experience with them. [b]Ninja Gaiden 2[/b] [Xbox 360] - Path of the Mentor it's definately a different experience compared to the levels before it, but it's also ridiculous. What made NG2 hard for me were the cheapness of some of the enemies you encounter. I think they're called tac ninja's... (The ones that throw explosive shuurikens[sp?]) and then the ones that have missle launchers. When they come at you, they don't let up. They come in swarms and starting off with level 1 weapons makes things really difficult because not only do you not have access to some of the better techniques, but you really have to be defensive and learn some of the i-frames or else you're gonna die, and die a lot. The camera also makes things hard to because there are a lot of off-screen attacks that you can't see until the last moment. The only thing I'd probably change is the the camera. Make it a little bit more like God of War's camera and I'd probably have an easier time in handling such situations. [b]Hyper Street Fighter 2 Anniversary[/b] [Ps2] - Super Street Fighter 2 on this edition to be exact. The boss fight themselves weren't the hard part. The hard part is fighting T-hawk and Guile. Never anyone else. It's like as soon as I get to one or the other, everything just ramps up. Their attacks go through everything and they block every single attack. Oh, here's the kicker. I set the difficulty to 1 star. (easiest difficulty) Capcom was smoking on something here. I'd change that difficulty issue. If I set it to the easiest level I expect to be able to fly through these characters dangit. [b]Dead or Alive 4[/b] [Xbox 360] - Speaking of blocking every single attack.... This game is the epitomy of ridiculous. They block and nearly reverse every thing you throw at them. And then the final boss fight.... Yeah, she can knock of half your health bar in about 2-3 strikes... Team Ninja really took the fun out of this series when they did this game.. (sorry was going on a rant) I'd change the reversal system period or add an "easy" difficulty. >_>
  4. Dungeons and Dragons Online. I play. Anyone else? Same goes for Guild Wars.

  7. [img]http://www.1up.com/media/03/7/9/7/lg/379.jpg[/img] [quote=estarland]Set in the realm of Greek mythology, God of War III for the last time puts Kratos at the center of the carnage and destruction as he seeks revenge against the Gods who have betrayed him. A single-player game, this final chapter allows players to take on the climatic role of the ex-Spartan warrior, Kratos, as he treads through the intimidating heights of Mt. Olympus and the dark depths of Hell once more to seek revenge on those who have betrayed him. Armed with double-chained blades, Kratos must take on mythology's darkest creatures while solving intricate puzzles throughout his merciless quest to destroy Olympus. Utilizing a new game engine built from the ground up and state-of-the-art visual technologies, the development team behind God of War 3 have made significant strides in giving players the realistic feel of actually being on the battlegrounds. With texture resolutions being quadrupled since God of War 2, God of War 3 will feature fluid, life-like characters, as well as dynamic lighting effects, a robust weapon system, and world-changing scenarios that will truly bring unmistakable realism to Kratos' fateful quest. Players will have a chance to join battles on a grand scale with many more enemies on-screen and be able to interact with levels like never before. [/quote] [size=1][color=green]IGN - 9.3/10 Gamespot - 9.0/10 1up - A X-Play - 5/5 Gametrailers - 9.2/10 I'm not the biggest fan of the God of War games, but I do enjoy the gameplay. (Not as much as I like Ninja Gaiden or Devil May Cry) I've yet to play this game, but from what I've seen through video reviews I might not play it either. Don't get me wrong, the game looks great, but the brutal killing might even be too much for me to handle. Anytime games start [spoiler]showing spilled guts and whatever ligament that's attached to the eye all wiggly and whatnot[/spoiler] it becomes too much for me. Seriously, when I was watching, I think it was either Gametrailers or Gamespots video review, they showed that stuff and it felt like my stomach was about to turn. But yeah, I'm curious to hear about other peoples thoughts on the game.[/size][/color]
  8. [SIZE=1]Due to a slight accident my younger sister had at the weekend with my DS Lite I'm now in the market for a new Nintendo hand-held but am unfortunately having some problems in deciding whether or not to buy the new DSi XL over its smaller sibling, which is slightly cheaper. The XL's increased size supposedly preventing it from being very portable makes absolutely no difference to me as I do all my gaming at home during my free-time or on the train/bus where I'll have a backpack with me to store it when I'm done. Apparently all the internal software is the same as well so there's no deciding factor there. To be honest the only thing that concerns me about the DSi XL is its supposed pixel problem owing to the fact it has only the same screen resolution as the regular DSi. Some reviews I've read online say that it's not noticeable, others swear that unless you're extremely short-sighted, not wearing your glasses and holding the thing at arms length you can't help but notice. Has any OBer played both or know someone who has played both who can pass on first hand information ? [/SIZE]
  9. [SIZE=1]This series is one of my favorites and consists of some of the best games I've ever played. It has yet to consist of a game with intense graphics or online play, yet it continues to amaze me with each installment. Now I know what some of you might be thinking and although it's not near as popular or published as Final Fantasy, I believe it surpasses a lot of RPG games that are more knowledgeable among gamers. I believe Suikoden is a very underrated series of games with a lot to offer us. I just recently purchased Suikoden IV and after reading the reviews I wasn't sure if it would be any good at all. It got bashed a lot and the average rating I got of the game was a 6. However, after beating the game I found that most of the reviews and "problems" with the game, were well, nonsense. It offers about 30-35 hours of gameplay on average. I spent around 40 getting all the Stars of Destiny, armor sets, runes, etc. As I said before, the graphics are way behind the times concerning the PS2's capabilities, but they really didn't bother me as I played. The voice acting was good and the story was really good as well. The character development concerning Snowe and Hero was amazing and Konami did a fantastic job with the intertwining of the characters, considering there was over 100 of them. Which brings me to my next kudos concerning the game. The 108 Stars of Destiny within each Suikoden game allows a plethora of playable characters and support characters to use in your party. Games like FF (not including 11) usually offer around 8-10 playable characters, while Suikoden offers (on average) around 80 playable characters per game. Now of course, not all of these characters are winners, but some are just so interesting its hard to choose a certain number of them to use in battle. Well, luckily theres a remedy to this as well. Along with the RPG stereotypical random battles, there is also strategy battles where you are able to create several parties to battle with, rather then just one. Some of the strategy battles towards the end of Suikoden III were so complex I got frustrated trying to figure out who worked best with whom and how to set up my parties and such. This brings the battle system into play. Its not the greatest out there but it works well with the amount of characters given. You can use regular attacks as well as combo attacks where two to four of the characters in your party can work together to execute an attack of a much larger scale increasing the damage you're able to do. Now with all these characters each game offers around 20-30 different character combos allowing for more diverse play. Now all the things I've mentioned so far are great, but they aren't really why I love these games. I love them because of the plot, the characters themselves rather then just the number you get to use. It's hard to play a Suikoden game and not become enthralled with the story or feel connected to one of the characters in the game. Whether its a villain, a hero, or someone in between, theres always something or someone to relate to. It really allows for indepth gameplay and makes the twists and turns even greater and more surprising. Suikoden allows you to play the game over and over again learning something new each time. Theres always more stars to get and enemies to defeat allowing for much more playtime then just going through the game once. Does anyone else have any thoughts on the game? Likes, Dislikes, whatever? I'd like to hear what other people think.[/SIZE]

  13. [SIZE="1"][FONT="Microsoft Sans Serif"][COLOR="#862A51"]Inspired by [URL="http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?t=60709"]Gavin's thread here[/URL], it's basically the same concept, just in video game flavor. Hooray! So to start things off, one of my absolute favorite villains in a game is [spoiler]Dahlia Hawthorne[/spoiler] in [I]Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations[/I]. She is an absolutely deplorable human being, [spoiler]her crimes including poisoning/attempting to poison at least four people, three of which succeeded [though one of THOSE came back from a several-year-long-coma to whoop butt, and another was essentially goaded into poisoning [I]himself[/I]], stole her father's precious gem in order to flee with her "lover", who she also set up [with his input, granted] to make it look like an abduction, THEN staged a suicide to let HIM take the blame...while he went on to poison himself, as mentioned earlier. She also sent her sister to pose as herself, as Phoenix's girlfriend [though Iris wound up falling in love with him and was genuinely sweet. D'aww].[/spoiler] Oh, but the fun doesn't stop there: [spoiler]She also was in on a plot to assassinate Maya [who is technically her blood relative] just to get revenge on Mia for getting her a guilty verdict, THEN later goes on to take control of Maya's body to properly disguise herself as Iris, so she'd get the blame for a murder she did not commit. All this while Dahlia herself was [B]dead[/B].[/spoiler] So then why do I like her so much? Perhaps it's because I've always had a fascination with her character type, trying to deconstruct their mindset in an attempt to figure out why they did what they did. I may have also pitied her somewhat, considering how her [spoiler]parents essentially didn't want her[/spoiler], but I dunno. She's just so freakishly evil and batcrap insane, easily one of the most evl characters I've encountered in a game, ever. I just can't help but like her. She is a terrible human being, definitely deserving [spoiler]what she got in the end[/spoiler], and definitely a master at what she does [[spoiler]giving off a delicate, frail persona to throw people off, which probably just adds to how utterly messed up she is[/spoiler]], but she's just fascinating and terrifying. Anyway, now that I'm done assaulting you with a wall of text and spoilers, it's your guys's turn.[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]
  14. O.K people, the topic for this thread is simple, you write down things that stick out in video games( as jokes to make fun of the stuff that you normally can't do), name the game afterwards and read all of the other cool ideas! [U]What I learned from Video games is:[/U] 1. Mushrooms make me big, but turtles, fish, and bombs are among other things that make me smaller. - Mario anything 2. I can become pro in sports! - Wii sports 3. When I die, all I have to do is wait 15 second to be revived - almost everything 4. I've mastered my singing talents. - All singing games 5. I don't have to learn how to play the guitar to be in a band. - Guitar Hero Well That is pretty much all you have to do in this thread. Its really simple, but as you read others you wonder why you didn't notice that?
  15. Alright, so I will admit that I previously posted this topic on [URL="http://forums.christian-gaming.com/showthread.php?t=8711"]another website[/URL] but there it got off topic almost immediately. I am hoping it goes better here. Sorry if it has been done before. So recently started thinking about two of the best games I have played in recent memory--Persona 4 and Okami--and I realized that these games have one very big thing in common. They both incorporate mythology (in this case Shinto mythology) in brilliant and creative ways. Both of these games caused me to go and read up on Shinto mythology and that made me even more impressed with how the writers fit in these stories. So I was wondering, what is your opinion of the use of real world mythology in games? What games have done it well and what games have not done so well?
  16. Hi, Which was the first game you have ever played?I don't remember much about this game but crash bandicoot was the first game I have played when I was in 5th grade.
  17. [center][img]http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/3970/dreamcastthread.jpg[/img][/center] [font=franklin gothic medium]After seeing just how many Dreamcast fans are still around on OB, I thought I'd [i]finally[/i] start this thread. I figure this would be a good place to discuss all things Dreamcast, but it might also be a good place to discuss imports and things like that. Dreamcast is recognised as being pretty much the ultimate hardcore console. It's gained that reputation over the years, but I really think it lives up to that. And if you're unfamiliar with the console - or if you just never owned one - there's never been a better time to buy. Given how cheap they are now and the fact that there are still plenty of games and accessories available, you have plenty of choices. It's hard to describe exactly why Dreamcast is so loved among gaming enthusiasts, but I think there are a few obvious examples that make it clearer. For one thing, the period between 1999 and 2001 was possibly SEGA's most creative period. Games like Jet Set Radio, Space Channel 5, Seaman, Shenmue and even the still-rare Segagaga were all born in that period. SEGA also pioneered in a number of fields, including online gaming (by being the first company to introduce an in-built modem in a mainstream platform release) and voice recognition software (Seaman was entirely voice controlled). Unfortunately the Dreamcast died a premature death and there are a number of reasons behind that (I won't go into 'em right now though). Still, we can look back and enjoy the Dreamcast for what it was - especially now that it's in its tenth year of life (er, well...second life, maybe). Dreamcast's uniqueness was not only exhibited in its brilliant games, but even in its marketing. In Japan, for example, many of the TV commercials actually featured the company's president Hidekazu Yukawa, also known as "Mr. SEGA" (at one point you could even purchase a bobble-head figure of him). Here are a couple of Japanese Dreamcast ads, which kind of show why Mr. Yukawa developed such a cult of personality (and just look at how personally Mr. Yukawa takes criticism from a school kid about Dreamcast being out of stock): [center][youtube]IaRWBBIPFfA[/youtube][/center] I actually don't have many Dreamcast games, probably by virtue of the fact that the console wasn't well-supported here in Australia. At the moment I only have Jet Set Radio, Sonic Adventure, Sonic Adventure 2, Shenmue and Shenmue 2. I've only just bought Shenmue 2, which I imported from the UK. I posted a bit about that at [url="http://www.theotaku.com/worlds/otakuboards"]OB World[/url], but when I finish it I might actually attempt to post a longer article just about Shenmue. Anyway, I'm now in the process of setting up a room just for retro gaming stuff and Dreamcast comes first. I've just ordered a [b]DC-X[/b], which is basically just a disc that allows you to play all-region software. I've also ordered a "new" copy of Daytona USA 2001 from Japan. Other than that, there are a ton of games I want to get. I thought this thread would also be a great place to post recommendations (and maybe even reviews?)[/font]
  18. [size=1][color=darkred]Pretty much a game version of the anime thread. I actually think this is better suited for games over anime... "shrugs" I thought this would be an interesting topic for here. I'm just going to copy and paste it because the poster certainly did a nice job in wording it. [i]"This might be an interesting exercise and awesome discussion fodder. We have games we love. We have games we hate. In a normal discussion, we tend to heap praise on a game we love and tear into a game that's terrible or too silly. Nothing wrong with that, it's perfectly normal. Yet at the same time many great shows have something that could improved. We think "man, if these things were change, it would be perfect!" Conversely many awful or silly games may at least have a little redeeming virtue, and so one might think "man, if this had been done differently, it wouldn't suck!" So here, the challenge is to think outside the box and look at your favorites and pet peeves with a critical eye. The rules are simple. [List]Choose any sort of game. (PS, PS2, XBOX, etc) Do this as often as you like with as many anime as you like. [*]If you like it, list and discuss the things you like most about it. Obviously it's vice versa for something you hate. These details can be broad or specific, it doesn't matter. Maybe it's a character, maybe it's the plot at large, maybe it's the graphics or music. Anything goes. [*]Here's the trick. For every favorite strength or weakness, also single out and discuss a flaw or virtue respectively. [*]Discussing and/or challenging the criticism and praise that others have to offer is fair game and highly encouraged. [*]Just for even more emphasis, discussion is key. Please, please don't make this a list thread. [/LIST] Here's a very simple example to get everyone on the right track. [quote][B]Final Fantasy Gundam[/B] General opinion: positive [U]Strengths[/U] Well first off, wow! I can't believe Sunrise commissioned Square-Enix to make up a Gundam story. Sure, all of the men are designed like bishonen and they brought magic into a mecha show, but the story is epic! And best of all, the corresponding game won't suck for a change! Now that's merchandising done right. [U]Weaknesses[/U] Hey, wait a minute! This show doesn't actually exist! And it's a delusional fantasy that will never happen! Whew, thank goodness. That was close."[/i][/quote] I'll leave that Gundam quote there just for a general idea even though it is geared towards anime. But you get the gist of how it goes. Personally, I don't care how you set it up.[/size][/color]
  19. Hi guys If you're like me, and you love playing video games in your spare time, you're probably wondering what the best car racing games are out there in 2010. There are thousands of games out there, and yes, choosing the right one can be hard. I wanted to show you today on how you can find the best racing game that suits your needs. Forza Motorsport 3: By popular demand, Forza has created a third installment of their popular video game. If you're into the actual car brands, as well as very realistic graphics, this is a must try. I love this game for it's game play, and so much more. Midnight Club: Greatest Hits: Midnight Club has been around for what seems like forever, but a while ago, they released the greatest hits game. For less than $30, you can pick up this killer racing game for the PlayStation 3. Gran Turismo: Yes, I know there's a ton of Gran Turismos out right now, but if you have the PSP, there's one out there for you now. I own the PSP, and it's a great video game system on the go. Check it out, as it received some pretty good reviews. Dirt 2: The last one on my list is Dirt 2. It's a great game if you like the off road racing, as well as many different game play options. It's a great game to kill the boredom, as well as play online. 2010 is in store for a great year of games. Check out these relatively new games, and see which ones that you like.

  21. [SIZE=1]This thread is for games you find particularly amazing, but never really get noticed or don't get the recognition they deserve. Sometimes people only buy games they see on TV, or hear about from a friend, but there is some truly amazing games that are rarely ever talked about or recognized among the popular gaming community. My addition to this was the Suikoden Series which I mentioned in another thread. I'd like for everyone else to mention games that they've played that are really good, but really havn't been noticed. Even recommend for others if you like, nothing wrong with a plug here or there you know lol.[/SIZE]
  22. Who here's played it? I got it the day it came out and beat it shortly after. So far I've unlocked one of the secret levels in world 9, but I don't think it's going to be worth it to get all of them (unless I just get them gradually over the next couple of years). I would say this game far exceeded my low expectations. I enjoyed it a lot better than the DS game with a similar name. Edit: To elaborate a bit I thought I would say some more stuff about the game. It felt more like an actual Mario sequel to me than Yoshi's Island for some reason. It almost seems like a combination of Mario 1 2 3 and Super Mario World. The game has Yoshis, but they appear to all be generic, unlike Super Mario World where they have special abilities. Also, don't expect to take a Yoshi from one level to the next because they say goodbye to you as soon as you finish the level. There are a few new suits in the game. My favorite new suit involves a propeller hat. You shake the controller slightly and the character flies into the air. Another very nice touch is the use of the wii controller's speaker. When you get a mushroom or a power up the sound comes directly through the controller speaker. It almost adds another dimension of sound. I highly recommend this game.
  23. Wow, it feels like it's been more than a month since I've last made a topic. Anyway, we've got anticipations (probably should make another one), favorites, top whatever, and worst type of threads. And I was watching X-play earlier and they brought up a good idea for a topic. What are some of the games that didn't meet your expectations? (Don't really care how far you take it back.) EDIT: [strike]You know those games that have a lot of hype surrounding it, but when you got your hands on them you didn't see what everyone was raving about.[/strike] Games that never wowed you. (Sounds better right?) By the way. Let's play nice kiddies. [strike][b]Final Fantasy 7[/b] - I suppose we can start this off with a bang. For it's time I suppose I can see why it was so great. The graphic's, I mean. But with me coming into the series so late, and starting off with Final Fantasy 8 and then jumping to 10 (Never finished. Not even close to the end and dropped it.) and coming back to play 7 could really do things to mess you up. The whole blocky, chibi-lookin characters just didn't sit so well with me. And I've never been one to follow storylines... I'm completely absent-minded (short attention span) when it comes to them. (I'd have to play a game atleast 4-5 times to pick up on the story.)[/strike] [b]Super Smash Bros series[/b] - I'll admit I had fun playing it on the Nintendo 64 because I was surrounded by the random acting folks I call my brother and sister. (Any game can be made fun if you have people that laugh at what was never meant to be funny.) I've never played the GCN version because I've became sick and tired of Mario. Jump ahead to the SMBB, and well, I just could never click with it. It was decent and I guess I was looking for something dynamic because it looked kinda pretty. I think I was looking for something like Street Fighters.... DO NOT ASK. I don't know what I was thinking at the time. [b]Soul Calibur 2[/b] - Probably one of the biggest disappointments ever. Fighting with weapons is great and all, and I had fun with the first Soul Calibur, but SC2 just didn't cut it. It's pretty much a rehash of the 1st SC with smoother looking graphics. Kind of a weird thing to say because that can be said about the DoA series. (which I adore) But what keeps me coming back to the DoA series is the [strike]bounce[/strike] environmental fighting. It's not much but it's there. Being able to knock people through, over, and off things makes things more fun to me. Here in the SC series you gotta worry about ringouts. I hate ringouts. (guess you can see where my gripe/suckage comes in at XD) And to think I actually tried to play Soul Calibur 4.... lol [b]Tekken 5[/b] - Read Soul Calibur 2, but then replace all of the SC's with Tekkens. But then again, if Namco hadn't decided to change up on a few characters moveset I probably would've enjoyed Tekken 5 a lot more. I've never played Tekken 4 so I don't know the change was made beforehand or not. (JIN SUCKS IN T5) If I have to play a Tekken game these days, I'd much rather it be either Tekken 3 or Tekken Tag Tournament. [nit-pick]I understand the one-hit ko's were takin out to make things more even (Paul's punch was just sick), but what was the deal with that boss? [/nit-pick] [strike][b]Gears of War series[/b] - Err.. I was expecting a lot from the whole stop and pop experience type of shooting, but when I actually got my hands on it, I just didn't care for it. Running for cover was not my thing. I'm a gung-ho type. I like to run in with guns blazin. (I'd be the first to die on a real battlefield lol.) Everything else looked pretty though.[/strike] I don't think any of these games are necessarily bad (I still think FF7 is actually a good game.) or the worst games ever made, even though I bash on Mario a lot. They just turned out to be a bit disappointing. [size=1]I think I'm gonna try to think of a topic for the opposite effect.... What's the opposite of disappointing?[/size]
  24. After playing video games for eight years, I've come across games that have a amazing soundtrack. These two games, Tales of Legendia and Final Fantasy 8 are tied for first place in my favorite soundtracks, with Chrono Trigger and the Castlevania series being honorable mentions. So, what is your favorite video game music?
  25. [SIZE="4"][FONT="System"]Lately Ive been finding myself thinking about video games and what it would be like to be in them! I know..this is like every little kids dream to do but me being the age I am still want to be in video games!!! So I ask those of you out there willing to say...if you were put into a video game what game would you want to be placed in? Me personally i have to go RPG because the adventure and colorful characters i would meet really peaks my interest!! The game I choose to be placed in would be Final Fantasy X! It is probrably my 3rd favorite RPG!!! The scenes and characters are super awesome and the thought of going on the adventure that they went on would be cool as well!!! Of course I would do things my way instead of following what the storyline said!!! For example the love part of the storyline would probably wait for me until the end of the adventure!!! On to weapons and stuff. I am a Pike or halberd kinda guy so I think so kind of weapon like that would be mine!!! My pike would would be one handed of course and I would use shields as my defensive item! My final weapon would be called the Dragon Star!!! Ive actually drawn it on paper and I hope to upload it on the OBs soon. Just the thought though of going through life like that instead of how we go through it now, not that life is bad because my life is pretty good!!! (Totally off topic there) LOL!!![/FONT][/SIZE]
