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

What's "IRL stuff"?

Anyway, just finished Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams. It's a lot longer than you'd expect, and a lot better than I expected it to be. Great direction, cool story, and fabulous ending. The early reviews I've seen appear to be on the mark (check out gamerankings.com where last I checked it had a 88% so far) and expect at least 18 hours to beat it. More than 24 hours if you do a lot of the available item hunting (i.e. backtracking) and Dark Realm stuff.

Either he's talking about the Indy Racing League, or "in real life" -- as if he's living some sort of fantasy life outside of it?

I didn't play much beyond the demo, but I think it was a grossly, grossly over-rated game (as far as such low key games are concerned, at least).

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

I finally beat Silent Hill 2.
I bought it about two years ago and started playing it with a friend, but we only got around halfway through it, then it got shelved.
I started thinking about it the other day, and what really made me want to finish it was the premise: a guy gets a letter from his wife asking him to meet her in Silent Hill, a place they had their happiest times. The only thing is, his wife died three years ago.
What a premise! I had to find out what it was all about.
I've never felt such sick terror playing a game before, or watching a movie before, as I did while playing SH2. As a fan of horror movies, it occurs to me that horror games like this one are even more powerful in their effects, since you are within the environment, interacting with it, not simply watching, with no control. You have the control of whether you enter that door, and how long you wait outside with your guts churning.
In short, I just want to say that this game was amazing, and I can't stop thinking about it. Even having finished it, I'm still trying to figure out what happened.

IRL = In Real Life

So I take it you're doing the guidebook?

Maybe you'd even consider doing one of your in/famous contests?

One question, does it have the same samurai from 1 & 3 in it? (Sorry, can't remember his name atm, but he is one of the better looking fellows in pixilated gaming. )

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

Whee! I've a legitimate reason to post.

Finished Riviera on Friday. I got Fia's ending. What a mamby-pamby ending (after saving the world, blah, blah, blah..) that was. No sex?!? Sheesh.

Say, does anyone know what /really/ happens with the extras? Like, do you keep your mad skilz or what? (Sorry, I'm not really proficient in leet speak. )

ALSO.. WHERE'S BOY???????

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

I'm going to try to start posting in this thread again. Beat Grandia 3 yesterday afternoon, I give a few more details in the Grandia 3 thread, but overall its an typical Grandia game; great battle system, cool upgrade system, bland story. Overall a 7.5/10

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

Mario and Luigi: Partners in time. I thought it was pretty good, it was the perfect length about 16 hours or so. Right when I was starting to get bored with it, it was over.

The only thing which sucked was you had to fight the last 3 bosses wih no saving in between each battle. It took me a little longer than an hour to get through all three battles. I can only imagine how frustrated I would have been if I had died or had to stop playing b/c I ran out of time. Such long periods without savig should not be present on handheld games.

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

I beat Black for the Xbox. 6 hours to complete. I only went through the normal difficulty though. Ideally you could wank more than 24 hours out of it if you tackle each difficulty setting.

I was a fun, shallow, romp of a game.

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

I beat Castlevania: Curse of Darkness for the XBox on Sunday March 12, 2006.

I finished it in 34 hours by the in-game clock, but the actual playing time was probably about three hours more than that.

You can beat this in far less time. I spent several hours leveling up NPCs.

Tetris DS.

I cleared 200 lines in Marathon mode and I got the credits for it, so I guess I've beaten it. Also cleared 20-5 in "Line Clear", beat the level 5 CPU in Push Mode (though I can't beat level 5 on standard. Fucker's insane.) And a whole bunch of other things, including beating up on people online.

This is totally out of topic, but...

...who here wants to place a bet at when this thread will reach 1000 posts?
