The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Review

Toonster

7 years ago

Things like Skyward Sword are what keep me buying video games. I'm not a huge fan of FPS's and RPG's (not to slag off the genres, they're just not my cup of tea), so to see these kind of titles keep coming out warms the cuckolds of my heart. I will have you soon, SS!

Welcome to the new Eurogamer

Toonster

7 years ago

Looks good! Glad I can check up on my post history. Had to use Google to search for old posts from 2005. Also, glad we can post images now. I think that's long overdue.

I'll miss the old forum layout though. I think part of what attracted me to Eurogamer was the simplicity of everything. No signatures or avatars to get in the way, and no cheesy emoticons. It seemed pretty straight-forward and more user-friendly... for me, anyways.

Of course, I don't mind that too much now, since the things that keep me coming back are the articles and the people who post here (the ones who aren't cunts anwyay).

Great job, EG. Looking forward to seeing what else you lot have in store. Here's a reward.

Retrospective: Metroid Prime

Toonster

7 years ago

"when I got to one of the very last rooms before Prime and there's a bunch of platforms and constantly respawning Metroids to push you off them, I started hating it."

This is the very room that's keeping me from completing the game at the moment. I'm more nervous about encountering this room than the final boss itself.

That said, I love the game. Also, beat Meta-Ridley on the second try, ya little weakling! :D

Why I Hate… Angry Birds

Toonster

7 years ago

I own it and it's good for a bus/plane ride, but I've seen the concept so many times before. However, it does egg you to continue playing (har har) and after a while, you do grow to hate those bastard pigs.

It's an OK game, but I can understand the love or hatred people have for it... though I don't quite understand its popularity.

Favorite game of all time. The first one was great but number 2 just refined the concept to the absolute point of perfection.

Scribblenauts

Toonster

I would give this game a 9/10 so far. Been playing it for a couple days. Controls are shoddy, but once you're used to them, they're not much bother. Puzzles are great, whether they're easy or hard, and the advanced mode adds shit tons of replay value.

Oh, and best main menu ever. I've spent hours on it, coming up with weird little scenarios, like dressing Maxwell as a transvestite and having him tandem bicycle with Einstein off a ramp. Only in Scribblenauts!

Er, I've been seeing a lot of decent reviews on EG for Wii games recently.

But when a 5/10 comes along, some of you just go batshit insane, babbling about how you see this review as way to reinstate the fact that you're so proud of selling your Wii.

Let's say a 7/10 is a good game. If I count the number of Wii games that EG has reviewed THIS YEAR that are 7 or above, there are... [counts]... about 25, including a 10, a 9, and shitloads of 8's and 7's.

While I'm a bit disappointed that the Conduit didn't turn out to be the great game I had hoped, it's still no reason to go around parading about how there are no games on the console. To be frank, the Wii isn't the problem, but you are (and you know who you are), because you're too busy wanking over how presumably 'shit' the console is to buy any of its games.

edit: and for the sake of idiots like Plewt, those 25 games I mentioned don't consist of any VC or round-up reviews.

Pokémon Platinum

Toonster

'WOW! Something as powerful as the N64 with the graphics of a SNES!'

The game looks a lot better than an SNES game. Granted, the lay-out looks the same as all previous Pokemon RPGs, but the environment does use a lot of 3D, particularly for buildings. It's sort of like a cross between Animal Crossing and Advance wars DS in terms of the graphics department.

Pretty disappointing list overall. I expect better next year, EG.

World of Goo should have been GOTY (imho) and No More Heroes deserved more love; I would have been happy if it even showed up in the 40s.

Sid Nice, I can never tell if you're being serious. In the forums, you seem to like Nintendo, but on the comments section, it's the other way round. Do you enter through some portal to a parallel universe every time you switch between forum and comments? I mean, all your top wanted games are for the Wii!
