I recommend the movie Big Ass Spider, if you like B movies. It's funny and off beat.

Should I go for Final Fantasy VII or IV Complete Collection? There's a sale on PSN for most of the Final Fantasy games there that ends at midnight, but I can't make up my mind on which one to go for. I've already decided to get VI (I know the PS1 version is worse than the SNES and GBA ones, but its just the most convenient one for me to play on the Vita), and even though I have IV on the VC, I've only played about half of it and that was at least two years ago.

VII. One of the best games of all time. IV is too, and I actually used to like it a tad more than VII until I got so many hours into VII. I don't get the "VII is overrated" thing at all TBH.

IV Complete Collection is miles better than VII (VII was when it first started to be watered down).

Its not a game, but i really suggest everybody to watch Black Mirror tv-series - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2085059/
They are made in UK (cool humour) and talk about black sides of nowerdays technology. Really intrigueing i would say.

It's pretty entertaining and funny at the same time. I don't care what the critics say about this movie, because i love it.

I didn't even realize The Mummy got mixed reviews. Most people seem to like it, though. I know I do.

Hey, is there any reason to pick up Assassin's Creed IV for the Wii U instead of the PS3 or PS4?

Yeah it got somewhat mixed reviews but The Mummy was a pretty big deal when I was... younger... ...well I feel old ;)

Also funny fact, when Rachel Weisz (the actress in the poster) won her Oscar for The Constant Gardener the only other movies of hers the announcer mentioned were The Mummy and The Mummy Returns which sounded kind of awkward! Skip to 1:40 if anyone wants to take a look.

It depends. Mega Man 7 is one of the weaker entries in the franchise so you have many other Mega Man options. Sly Cooper is severely easy and brief, Jak & Daxter is an awful platformer (you can find better), and Wii Sports Resort is, well, Wii Sports.

So now you're left with the most overrated, aged Final Fantasy ever developed, Chrono Cross, and Metal Gear Solid. If you want to play what is arguably the best game on the PlayStation, buy Metal Gear Solid. If you liked Chrono Trigger, you're more than likely going to like Cross.

Just for you.

Final Fantasy VII. :) I really love that game to death, can't ever get enough of it. (And yeah, I know, this is the generic answer)

(And overrated game comments most likely incoming...)

I'll just repeat here, what I wrote in the closed thread:

I'd go with MGS, with a little bit of Wii Sports Resort (sword fighting & archery) on the side.

Well I wouldn't just play Wii Sports I would play that maybe in conjunction with one of the other games on your list. Since I only played a few of those games on that list (Mega Man 7, Earthbound. MGS, FFVII, and Chrono Cross) that leaves me with those choices I would have to chose MGS. But then again I didn't find FF VII or Chrono Cross enjoyable. If you are in an RPG mode I would suggest Earthbound over those two and as far as Mega Man 7 goes well unless you are in the mood for that game in particular you are better off playing one of the better games in that series. Usually when I get started on 7 I get about half way through it and then I end up going back to one of the other Mega Man games due to just how much better they are overall.

The Xbox is the perfect system out there for those of us who are annoyed by the constantly rising old-school game prices on most systems. The (huge) black box can be acquired for under $50. Just be warned, the system does require quite a bit of room. All of the systems are sturdy, but you should try to get a system with the Samsung drive or the Phillips if you can. The system has a hard drive, so no pesky memory cards to buy, and the (Slim) controller feels really nice in my hands, and is generally pretty useful other than the wonky d-pad.

The hardware is pretty rad, but the games is where it gets real. In 3 months, me and my brother have been able to get 30+ games for it dirt cheap. The game library is substantial to say the least, and many multi-plats actually were better on the system. MS even paid a ton to get some rad 1st party games and 3rd party exclusives on the system. Building a good library of games, irregardless of the games you like, should be extremely easy. Many games are available for under $5 or $10 complete and mint, and only a few ever go above the $20 mark. You can pretty easily find the games in pawn shops, thrift stores, used game shops, and the like, and the system is a practical haven for gamers on a budget.

Check out:

Games under $10

  • Guilty Gear X2 # Reload
  • Soul Calibur 2
  • SSX 3
  • Jade Empire
  • Outrun 2
  • MechAssault
  • Midway Arcade Treasures compilations
  • Tecmo Classic Arcade
  • Fable
  • Jet Set Radio Future / SEGA GT 2002 disc

Games under $5

  • Blood Wake
  • Doom 3
  • Links 2004
  • Rallisport Challenge 1 and Rallisport Challenge 2
  • Halo and Halo 2
  • Quantum Redshift
  • Forza Motorsport
  • Crimson Skies
  • Project Gotham Racing
  • Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance
  • Ninja Gaiden Black

A little more expensive

  • Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic ($15-20, well worth it!)
  • Panzer Dragoon Orta ($10-15)

Kind of tired, might edit in some more later :P.

I can use some recommendations for the Playstation 3 (retail or PSN)

  • preferably cheap
  • I like both blockbuster games and indie titles - since I know most blockbusters, I'd prefer suggestions like Outland or Journey
  • I really don't care for first person shooters, nor most third person shooters

My favourite titles are Guacamelee (gameplay), Red Dead Redemption (atmosphere) and AC II (atmosphere)

I'll also second @puravik 's recommendation: Black Mirror is one of the best shows on TV.

Sonic Generations
Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection

Not all of the games in Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection (AKA Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Collection) are great, but there are forty-nine games. It was easily worth the twenty dollars I spent on it.

Another game worth looking into is Sonic Unleashed. This game is what convinced me to buy a PS3 in the first place, because it is enormously fun. It's a lot like Sonic Generations, but with less streamlining, greater focus (feels more like a full adventure and less like a set of levels unrelated to each other), and a much better, albeit inconsistent, frame rate (60fps at best, something horrible at worst). I wouldn't recommend jumping in without first doing some research, though. It has some glaring flaws, such as quicktime events, and neither mode of gameplay may appeal to everyone. I recommend first watching some videos and then deciding if the end product appeals to you.

I like the movie Independance Day because of Will Smith.

Titanic was a pretty sad movie.
