Unfortunately, no. Nintendo has stopped licensing out third-party strategy guides for their 1st party games for well more than a year now. The only option are the Nintendo Power Player's Guides.

i finally got myself a ps2 and im barely playing san andreas. ive started it, but i just dont feel motivated to play the missions. i dont want to give full blown criticisms but suffice to say im pretty disappointed by it so far. ill pick up mercenaries and give it a try, once ive beaten echoes that is.

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

Finished Zelda: Minish Cap last night. It was pretty damn fun. Felt like I finally got to play the next super nintendo Zelda game that never came out

Puzzles were sometimes a little too confusing, and it seemed a little easy at times, but a good time nonetheless. Easily reccomendable.

Now off to the mouting pile of games that I've started and haven't finished yet....ugh. I will overcome, damn it!

Tail Concerto for the PS1. I dunno, this game went and got all sucky when I wasn't looking. I used to be pretty obssessed with it. I mean, that robot has those floppy arms and the main character's name is Waffle and the floating islands and the cutesy steampunk art style. Now it's just like...bleh. Thankfully, it was quite short.

I just beat RE4.

Am I the only one who felt like they were almost reliving a ton of moments found in Metal Gear Solid for the PSX?

I can't think of any offhand, sans the ending gameplay sequence, but I remember many times towards the end thinking "this is just like MGS."

Beat Legend of Zelda, the Minish Cap as well.

Definitely by the numbers, but you're still talking about some pretty damn good numbers with the Zelda series...

Still, I don't know how I'd feel about another Zelda release that doesn't offer some major new gameplay twists.

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

I just beat Metroid Prime for the first time tonight. Got 75% on my first playthrough. Simply a great game, I dare say it might be the best game of this generation on consoles. My only complaint is that I would have liked to see Samus have a voice or some additional cutscenes. The idea of scanning for the story is cool, but i would have liked to have a little more.

That's interesting, because I would have liked a lot less. First person games should avoid all forms of external, non-interactive cutscenes, IMO.

I think the main reason why I wanted to see some cutscenes is that I'm sure I missed several of the Chozo Lore scans, so I missed out on some of the back story. I also had no idea what meta-ridley was about and why Samus was chasing her.

I agree.

I get to finally place a legit post in my own thread, as I beat KOTOR 1 this past weekend. Cool game. I didn't do all of the sidequests, naturally, and beat a light side ending with about 35 hours of gametime. I already started a dark jedi chick. Answering some of those questions "badly" sure does feel good!

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

KKK i cant believe you didnt like echoes as much as prime. I'm loving echoes. i think the bossfights are much better than in the original prime. and it seems like theres more of them!

Right now I'm finding keys to the sky temple. only 5 more to go. instead of trying to decipher the ambiguous key location clues i just decided to make a trip through all of light/dark aether with my shiny new light suit and search each room one by one. since i have most of the weapons/powerups its probably better to run back through all the areas i already explored and get those extra energy tanks and missle/ammo upgrades i couldnt get before. I cant wait to see what the sky temple has in store. im gonna hate it when this game is over.

The boss fights in Echos are indeed better, for the most part. And I did like that there were more of them (the addition of sub bosses, etc.).

Good luck! I'm still stuck on the final boss of the game. After getting my butt handed to me I have yet to pick it up. I have to get back in the mood.
