Little King's Story

Ciaran

9 years ago

I guess it's back to the PC cartoons for us all; the cast has to include a member of every race and at least one disabled kid and episodes need to be focused on stressing how everyone is special and can make a difference and how everyone has their own unique talents! Yay!

Psychonauts wants its design doc back. ;)

Maybe I'll get this. The Wii's been collecting dust for a couple of months now.

I'm still sad that VR helmet clip back in the 'revolution' days was a fake.

Still like my Wii though. /waggles

FFVI Advances on Europe

Ciaran

11 years ago

Plan on playing this like a proper rpg with my trusty old Cube and GameboyPlayer combo: on the telly, beer and snacks at hand.

I got it (the GBPlayer) with my Nintendo points, but never really saw a good excuse to use it. Then the GBA FF remakes stated coming out... :D

FFIV for DS

Ciaran

11 years ago

I played a friends' GBA version of this for a couple of hours on a lost weekend. I remember enjoying it quite a bit, even though I was confused by the ATB system at first. It seemed out of place somehow. Never bought it for myself but I actually do fancy a DS remake with FFIII-style graphics.

Now, whether or not to buy FFV and VI on GBA, or wait until confirmation of the likely DS versions...

GI.biz Editorial: Laying Blame

Ciaran

11 years ago

Any thoughts on the US military's use of video games in combat training?

As far as i understand it, the games have specific scenarios that are used mostly for training of group/squad tactics and dynamics, not as a realistic representation of combat.

Shinji: very good point. Now be a good lad and go make it on American prime time tv!

Wii outselling rivals

Ciaran

11 years ago

Aaaaaaaaargh!

Look, just STOP it, all of you. It's sickening! What the fuck are some big-ass company's sales figures to you anyway? Does your happiness depend on it? Have you all got stock options?

Just... go buy a game. Any game. Now play it. You'll feel better.

FFXII hogs top spot

Ciaran

11 years ago

Just out of curiosity, is the PAL version full screen with no borders?

Main gameplay window and menus - yes
Cut-scenes: fuck no

The movies all have bloody big borders on three (!) sides of the picture, left, right and bottom. I was really annoyed at first, but tbh, it doesn't *really* detract I suppose. I've stopped noticing them anyway.

I got this at release here in Belgium, and I was really enjoying it... until FF XII came along and ate up all my rpg gaming time.

I'll get back to it eventually.

KH2 is definitely a lot better than the first one. A lot of the annoying quirks (I'm looking at you, camera control!) have been ironed out. IMO, of course.

Trauma Centre: Second Opinion

The difficulty spikes in the DS version really put me off. If I can cheat around that here by changing difficulties on the fly, this game is definitely on my to buy list.

Ciaran

Yeah, but apparently it's the second most bought game in the US, next to Zelda. Which for Ubi means mucho $

I'd give it a rental first.

I agree on the scratching sound thing. Almost blew my eardrums out on my headphones.

Good show though. Why not try using sound effects of the games you're reviewing or something? Or having Ellie do that aa-AA-aah thing some more. ^_^

So, Tom, did you play it on a SP, a DS or a Micro?

These (this and dotstream) seem like a perfect import together with a Famicom Micro, but I wonder about the small screen..

Elite Beat Agents track-list

Ciaran

12 years ago

IMO rhythm and music games are almost purely about the gameplay anyway. As another forumite put it: 'Press these buttons, do it in this order and if you get it right, be rewarded with music'.

And anyway, when you see how much monstrosities like More than a Feeling get picked in GH when I've got friends over, you just stop worrying and embrace teh ch33zzz. ^_^

Basis for the unique graphical style is sumi-e, or traditional Japanese ink-and-watercolour painting (done on rice paper). There's some beautiful stuff out on the 'net if you look around for a while.
