Yes, infact, I am!

I believe I sent you an email upon recieving the game, right?

Right now, I'm at World 4 Sogwood Forest. I would be farther, except I keep going back to get all the treasures. x)

I'm sorry Corbie, but when I read that, I imagined Gregg talking.

Everyone has their own top 10 list. Mine has mainly N64 titles. ^^ Oh, and as for the Emperor of the World thing. You guys can keep arguing over that. I'll be on Pluto, plotting my take over of the universe. (I should probably get an avatar showing that I'm a female, but I'd rather just have a smiley face staring blankly back at you all.)

The page is gone now, it just says database error. He's definitely still watching these forums, probably just using a different username or not posting at all.

SHOW YOURSELF FIEND! :D

It's definitely him, he mentioned rugby under interests. Apparently, he was also alive in 1911, according to IMDB

That link works just fine again. I guess it really WAS a database error. I still wish people would stop chasing after the guy, though. Just let him go, huh?

Ah, nice choice. I'd like to add, for the Mac and Linux users, that you can use Crossover Games to play this and many other great Steam titles perfectly on your Mac or Linux box, without having to reboot into Windows or run a virtual machine.

After all, if something isn't offered on a Nintendo system, I'd still much rather run it on my Mac than have to use a PC or have to resort to the Xbox and PS3, whatever those are.

I'd also like to add that we've seen 100, 9, and 8 now... when are you going to fill in that huge gap?

I played Half-Life 2 when I got the Orange Box for Portal. Just another first-person shooter. Except not as good. I guess you have to drudge through the mediocre game play longer than I was willing to before the story gets interesting because I've never understood why people regard this game so highly. I wish I knew what I was missing, but I just don't have patience or interest in this kind of first-person shooter.

Portal was fantastic though, of course. Not to mention Team Fortress 2 (though everyone on PS3 picks Two Fort over and over, so I got really tired of it after a month).

@warioswoods:
Quiet, you. Bubble blowing dinosaurs are in the TENTH BEST GAME EVER MADE and you'll just have to deal with that. Or ignore me. Either one works. (Added your advice to the entry. Thanks!)

@Adam:
You're really bad at being my sockpuppet, you know. And do you really, truly think that HL2 is not as good as a "standard" FPS? I mean...that's mind-boggling! Maybe you didn't get far into it, which is valid, as the opening chapters are pretty draggy, but they make up for the slow start with some truly excellent atmosphere and area design. It's the kind of game I want to play again on God mode just so I can walk around and experience the morbid detail at my own pace.

Maybe if you would wash your socks first I wouldn't mind playing along.

The actual action was really slow and uninteresting. Also, I remember running out of ammo and not being able to find any more, which, as you can imagine, made it less than fun. My favorite part about shooters is shooting -- I'm weird, I know, I'm reminded everyday here -- and it's very difficult to do when I have nothing to shoot.

The story didn't seem anything special either. I wish I knew how far I got so I could tell you and see if I really shortchanged it or not, but I think it was a mix of boredom and frustration (the ammo thing), so I don't know that giving it another chance would help. I don't have the game anymore, anyway.

I'll have to watch a speed run of it some time. I went through a phase before the Wii came out where I just watched speed runs instead of getting new games. It's really not that bad, for single-player games, and a little bit cheaper, too.

By the way, I just checked the other thread where Chicken already posted his top 10 list, and the next game is Metroid. Here's what he had to say:

The NES original is a million times better than Metroid Prime 3 Corruption, that horrible, horrible game. Metroid is so much better in 2D. I wonder why people like morph ball puzzles. Also, sometimes I wish I could be a little bit more like Adam.

And I've got to say, I agree completely. Great review.

Foolishness.
Metroid Prime 3: Corruption is one of the greatest games of all time. Metroid is better in 2-D, I'll agree with that, but Metroid Primes 1 and 3 absolutely nailed Metroid 3-D, and I must say, I never cared for the original Metroid.
But whatevs, Chicken. You like Wii Music, which makes you okay in my book. Oh, and I was glad to see some Punch-Out love, though I'd say the Wii version is miles better than the NES version.

@Weirdo Adam
Dumb question...what difficulty level were you playing on? I don't remember having trouble locating ammo, except in two locations: Ravenholm, where the survival-horror aspect sort of made it appropriate, and Nova Prospekt, which was sort of structured as Operation Hell-on-Earth anyway. Ravenholm, I think, is toward the middle of the game, and Nova Prospekt at the end. Prior to that, I seemed to be well topped-off on my weapons, but I was playing on the easiest difficulty level.

The thing with the "story" in HL2 is that it's all implication. Sort of like 2001: A Space Odyssey in that respect. It doesn't tell its story in any standard way. Actually, it doesn't tell its story at all. It leaves it up to the player to piece it together from fragments, props, empty rooms...

I'd never say the story was brilliant, but I will say that the restraint used in telling it was brilliant.

Weird Adam was trying to rile me up there, Kid_A. MP3 is one of my all-time favorite games...as you'll soon see. Adam just wanted me to slap him around a bit. (I think he likes that, between you and me.)

@Chicken
Good question. I don't remember. Probably Normal. I need to start playing games on Easy my first time through, but it's a matter of pride to at least try Normal first, and I often forget (as is the case now) that there was a difficulty selection in the first place.

@Kid_A
I'll buy that people like Metroid Prime. I liked the first one, and the sequels weren't awful, but they didn't nail the concept of "Metroid 3D." Good games in their own right, sure, but not really faithful to the Metroid formula.

@AlexSays
I have to like being weird. If I didn't like it, the forum's quote system and I would never get along.

@Kid_A
Don't buy into Chicken's lies. He wrote that quote. But I'm glad you appreciate my Adamness. The ladies especially love it.

@Adam
Don't listen to them. You're not weird. Shhh, it's okay.

He has been dethroned by Terranigma. ALL HAIL!!

First order of business, I'm sending DDI into oblivion with all their games alongside The Asylum (Crappy film studio who do knock-offs of big blockbusters). Life will be sweet.
