Re: I think it'd be great if the Staff...

RocketBird

...would parade around in pink undies at the office at least once a week...maybe start out once a month to ease them into the whole routine of the idea. But it should definitely be done once a week. Think what it would do for morale. They could even raise money for their favorite charity by auctioning off a staff pic taken on said pink undies day. Just a thought.

Re: iPhone/ Mobile gaming thread

RocketBird

Just wanted to let folks know, in case you didn't already, Street Fighter IV for ipod etc...is currently selling for $0.99 and all proceeds go to victims of the Japan Tsunami. I just picked it up. A great game for ipod, way more intuitive than I ever thought it could be on such a tiny screen and no physical controls. WELL worth $0.99.

Re: Super Mario Bros. 2: the cult classic

RocketBird

I'm with you guys! SMB2 is and has always been my absolute favorite of the old school super mario games. What I love is that the differences between Mario and Luigi in terms of graphics and the physics of running (mario faster, luigi slower) jumping (mario lower, luigi higher), turning (mario quicker, luigi more slippery) etc...come directly from SMB2 to the Galaxy games. SMB2 is the first mario game to have a power meter (which came back w/ super mario 64). It was the first to give us some now classic world aesthetics in the way that the desert and ice levels look and operate. I'm sure the list goes on. What I'm sayin' is SMB2 was HUGELY influential to the overall canon of all the super mario world and certainly deserves its due.

Re: Should a black actor play Spider-Man in the next movie?

RocketBird

I don't think there is anything wrong with a black actor playing spider man. I think the movies have gotten a bit stale...and switching the actors up would be an interesting move. It's not like the character spider man can't possibly exist if he happens to be black.

Re: Does anyone else feel like this gaming generation isn't as good?

RocketBird

To me this generation is like the renaissance of gaming. Like many who have posted previously, I stopped at Snes and the Wii brought me back. What I am most impressed by is the independent developers making things for wii ware. There are some really inventive games out there. I think that maybe this generation only doesn't compare if you are looking at past generations with nostalgic glasses on...

I MUST buy MALBIS but i dont have enough money

MALBIS? Haven't hear about that game

I didn't know what MALBIS was either. Then I looked on YouTube. It stands for Mario And Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story...I don't particularly care for shortening titles like that. It feels lazy to me and I think it is a subtle way of leaving some people out of the conversation. Just write out the game title.

Re: do you even like motion plus?

RocketBird

Like a lot of others on here, I think it really comes down to the games. I bought it day one with wii sports resort. I love playing Frisbee because I don't see the regular wii controller being able to pull that game off. Now I got red steel 2. I think that game is great and puts wii motion to good use. So, for me wmp is definitely worth it.

Re: Recent Titles you've purchased

RocketBird

Max and the Magic Marker --I'm loving this game, it is a ton of fun to play.
Castlevania Rondo of Blood -- Been wanting to play this ever since I heard of its existence. Fun, but only on the second level.
Red Steel 2 -- Been waiting for it. Bought it first day. Only put in 30 minutes, can't wait to get some more time in under my belt.

Wondering about Cave Story, but still not entirely convinced...

Re: Monster Hunter Tri US demo discs

RocketBird

Got the demo last weekend but haven't had much of a chance to play it. So far I'm undecided. I haven't tested all my weapon options just yet but the game does seem to be a bit repetitive. Not sure if I am going to get this one or not. Long live the demo disk though, I'm much happier checking this out than plopping down $60 for something that I may not enjoy.

Re: Really good games that are ruined by ONE THING

RocketBird

Mine is Super Mario Sunshine and the FLUDD. I had been out of gaming since my SNES days. Downloaded Super Mario 64 on the Wii and loved it. THEN got Galaxy and Loved LOVED that one. Then when I heard that Galaxy 2 was coming out I thought I'd try my hand at Sunshine to bide my time. Figured that what people had said about it being an inferior Mario experience had to be wrong...big mistake. I played one level. ONE! And couldn't stand the FLUDD. Couldn't stand that it talked. Couldn't stand that I couldn't progress unless I spayed random crap with water. Couldn't stand watching Mario running around with some ugly THING strapped to his back. Otherwise it was a lovely game. So glad I was able to return it and get my $17 dollars back on that one.

Re: Is a PS3 worth it?

RocketBird

Yeah, no 360 here. The Wii actually got me back into buying a video game system. The last video game system I had before was a SNES. But I did get my fair share of ps and ps2 action in college. Anyways, not too interested in 360 because it doesn't strike me as being so versatile...

Re: Is a PS3 worth it?

RocketBird

Thanks Swerd_Murd. It is really helpful to get info on people's actual experience with the system vs. just looking at specs online. Now I'm REALLY leaning towards purchasing one. This may be a basic question but does it connect with Hulu? I'm watching more tv through that website than before and would love to be able to do it from the comfort of my couch.

Re: Is a PS3 worth it?

RocketBird

Is the PS3 wireless compatible right out of the box? And what sort of software are you talking about that allows streaming from your PC?
