I always forget to post here when I beat stuff...

Finished Gungrave: Overdose on Sunday, Halo 2 before that.

Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

I just beat Psi-Ops. Fun game, i got kinda bored for a bit in the middle. They shouldn't have included those guys you can't throw. Its harder, but jnust not as fun.

Now I gotta psyche myself up to beat James Bond, so I feel like i've gotten my moneys worth... *sigh*... its just another soulless EA game.

Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

Finally beat the Halo 2 campaign. MEH.
Though I did notice in the credits that Michael Wincott was the voice of one of the profits. That was cool.
Everything else about the end sucked.

Huh. It must have got annoying to keep saying "cha-ching" over and over into a microphone. How do you direct an actor trying to be a profit anyway? I'd want him to be motivated, but if you don't want the "-ching" part ringing too much at the end. Then again, too much emphasis on the "cha" can seem obnoxious.

I got it, tell him to put a little hip thrust in it. A little "Cha" and then a nice, but firm, "Ching".

That would work. It's all about making sure the voice actor knows what you're trying to achieve. Then again, I just worry that with a name like Michael Wincot, the role of a profit may be a bit beneath him.

Oh be quiet. Considering his best known role was as "Top Dollar" in The Crow, profit is something he should know how to project.

PROPHET

fuck

Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

You guys will probably laugh at this, but I just played through the entire King's Quest series

It's a lot less fun when you're older and the puzzle answers are blatantly obvious.

Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

I beat Paper Mario 2 yesterday. I had been neglecting it this past week due to Metroid ECHOS. A well done game.

VERY MILD SPOILER for those that are playing it or will: don't sweat getting 100% in anything. You will see.

Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

I beat Halo 2 while sick. Everything about the game is/was fantabuloso, except for the "ending." Oh, and except for the fact that I virtually suck on multi-player. Jesus, I hate getting schooled by 12-year olds.)

Also while on bedrest, I worked a lot on Onimusha 2, Psi-Ops, and a bit on Crimson Skies. I believe I'm nearly done with the first two (damn, that pyro-boss was tough!), and amazingly enough, I don't hate the third. (I so rarely play flying games b/c I suck, and while I suck at this one too -- I'm playing it on easy, even -- I'm still having a grand time.)

After those.. well, I may just try and finish the first two MGS's before I (hopefully) get the third for the holiday. (I'm really not "allowed" to buy anything for myself between now and then.)
