Condemned 2: Bloodshot. I remember it gave me the chills despite never really being scary.

I think I rented that in 2009 not long after I got my 360. I recall it being pretty scary...but maybe I was just more of a chicken back then?

Also, is it shumps or shmups? I'm seeing both on here.

Shmups, there was a typo in the title. And honestly, I don't count either of those games, either...

Take out the question mark. Boom. Instant Castlevania discussion thread. No need for necro-posting.

Also, anybody else think Bloodlines is one of, if not the best-looking and most detailed 16-bit game of its era?

I can't say that any of those do interest me really (except ORAS possibly, but I'm leaning towards no right now). Also, most of those are either digital, third party, or otherwise not major releases, so it's really not that great.

Sucks to be you. Like, not just because of that, though it is contributing evidence. Just in general.

I can recommend Anodyne. A small PC game that makes no sense at all, and is somewhat creepy just because of that. The style is extremely minimalistic, and the design is kinda confusing at times, but as you progress, the game starts receiving a slightly dark undertone.

I have that installed apparently. On the list!

I actually prefer vague stories if done right. Not to say every Pokemon game does it right, but I still feel they're better because they're vague. Most of these stories would be stupid without the little touches and not having every detail shoved in your face all the time.

What are you guys talking about, "difficulty spikes?" A Link to the Past is pretty easy and I could beat it as a kid in *92. Despite it being easy, it's my second favorite game of all time.

I agree with the difficulty spikes. It's not so much as its hard as much as after certain points you're never given any space or downtime. Its not like Ocarina of Time where you can always go back to the past where things are relatively safe - after a while, even the Light World areas become overrun with some pretty tough soldiers who will chase you into buildings. Also, the first dungeon in the Dark World is...one of the hardest in the entire series, let alone the game.

It's the only major flaw with the game, though. I can say a lot worse about other Zelda games.

Really? If i had one complaint about this game it might be that it's too easy. You always have enough health. Also Dark Palace isn't even hard...

Don't get A Link to the Past.

On the contrary Ryno and Kevlar 44 are quite wrong when it comes to A Link to the Past being easy. I would never call it easy or even moderately easy. It is definitely harder in comparison to Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Oracle of ages, and Oracle of Seasons (my personal experience). But, what would you expect, this is one of the earlier Zelda's making it much harder of a game and much more frustrating. I mean, let's look at some basic reasons why A Link to the Past is hard:
Enemies in the light world take twice as much or more health away (in comparison to OoT, OoA, OoS, MM)
Enemies in the dark world take even MORE health from Link
Inconsistencies between enemies you recoil from and enemies that you don't recoil from make it difficult to deal with them
Some enemies have you recoil half a screen and other don't
Link's sword is not very effective at certain angles
Link's sword does not strike very far
It is difficult to switch Links direction when slashing the sword
It is hard to progress because health damage will lead to death quite often (even if you have multiple fairies in bottles)
Link is slow thus making it harder to avoid enemies
Many of Link's items are slow at repetition
Three words...death death and death (A LOT in this game)
There are many more reasons why this game is difficult

This is not an exhaustive list of how hard A Link to the Past really is and now you know that it shouldn't be played unless you have the patience to get through it and shouldn't be played unless you want to say that you've at least done it once in life.

I've heard that the original Zelda and Zelda II are harder than A Link to the Past. That's scary because ALttP is already a teeth gnashing hair pulling frustrating game. I couldn't even imagine how hard Zelda and Zelda II would be.

Honestly, The first quest of the original Zelda isn't too bad. It's no cakewalk, but I found it easier than A Link to the Past. While you can get more hearts in ALttP just from cutting grass, cutting grass is dangerous enough since it tends to spawn more enemies, and until you get the upgraded boomerang, that often means spawning bombs and enemies right in front of your face. In the origfinal Zelda...most enemies don't pay attention to you, they wander randomly, so if you're careful, you can take out enemies fairly easily and collect any hearts/fairies they drop. Also, most enemies deal the same amount of low damage, since there's only one optional armor upgrade. Combine that with a lot of dungeons having bombable shortcuts and you have a pretty straight-forward and easy time for a good portion of the game. (Darknuts still suck, though)

@RR529 Looks like the best Toonami line-up that I've seen for a while. Batman and Star Wars both bored me when trying to watch them that late.

I don't know if they still have rights to every show they used to air, but seeing Dragon Ball Z, Bobobo, or even some Gundam back on there would be nice.

If they could just show Stardust Memories one more time...

Don't worry, these days developers are taking DLC out of Wii U games. They're not adding the content to the disc, mind you. You just don't have to buy it now.

What benefits are there to apps? I mean, on the iPhone/iPad, they're programs you can't alter in any way - there's not folders you can access, so no one can hack into them, add user-based updates, etc. It doesn't affect the average end user at all one way or the other, but it does benefit companies by a lot.

On the computer, however, I kinda want to have access to the individual files, especially if I'm dealing with older programs (which happens a lot, at least for me, since fashion over functionality is more or less the thing these days). If I run into compatibility issues, I don't want to wait for a patch. If the developer stops supporting a program, I want to know there are still things I can do to make that program run in the future.

...except it looks here like the apps for Windows 10 will more or less function like regular programs, at least on PCs? So again: What is the point?
