SergeOfArniVillage commented on Miyamoto Unconcerned By Rival Motion Control S...:

Shigeru Miyamoto really hit the nail on the head. Also notice how reasonable his reply is. He thinks he is right, but he gives reasonable, tactful answers as to why he believes he and Nintendo are doing better than Sony and Microsoft. His modesty and reasonableness is a testament to his maturity... but it's funny, he really is a mature person, I think, but he has absolutely no problem striking goofy poses with a sword and such, and acting basically like a little kid, lol...



SergeOfArniVillage commented on Sony Expects Wii Owners To Upgrade To PS3:

The PS3 is worth owning for Ratchet and Clank ALONE, but why would I want to get rid of and forget the phenomenal Wii too? Do they really think that people just FORGET about great games on less-powerful machines? Then how do you explain the Virtual Console's success, and the fact that many games created back in the late 80s and all through the 90s are just as fun to play now as back then? And it's the same with the Wii and Xbox 360 and PS3: they ALL have great games that aren't going to just be forgotten in time. These people REALLY need to learn to think about what they're going to say BEFORE they say it!



SergeOfArniVillage commented on Talking Point: Should Game Stories Be Regarded...:

Ever read Dune by Frank Herbert? It's arguably the greatest sci-fi story book series ever told. Ever played Chrono Trigger and it's two sequels Radical Dreamers and Chrono Cross? When you've played those three games through (especially Chrono Cross), then you have played something as complex as the Dune series. Chrono Cross is very stimulating not only intellectually, but it also pulls at you emotionally, deep inside your soul. Go look up "Reminisce" or "The Girl Who Stole The Star" or "Singing Emotions" in the Chrono Cross soundtrack too. I could go on, but I'll stop there for now. Some other games that tell pretty darn brilliant stories, off the top of my head:

Majora's Mask
Final Fantasy 6



SergeOfArniVillage commented on Review: Kirby's Dream Course (SNES):

This game is definitely faaaaar funner than it has any right to be! This is a game for the ages! It's done with charm, wit, and originality It's game play is cool, and the different powers make for some very interesting ways to get the ball in the hole. Definitely a must-download



SergeOfArniVillage commented on Review: Star Soldier (NES):

I remember playing this game on the NES a few years back. It's not that great, it's just...bizarre! =D It's alright, but it's best forgotten really, it's nothing special.



SergeOfArniVillage commented on Review: Super Metroid (SNES):

This game is absolutely astonishing. If I had to use the right word for it, just one word, it would be "captivating". Everything about it hooks you. The eerie intro. The atmospheric and somewhat paranoiac music. The sense of being completely and utterly alone. alone alone alone (echoes die down) The awesome weapons and secrets you can discover. The nearly perfect game play and controls. The bosses are imaginative and challenging. Just, everything about the game is nearly perfect. Definitely 10/10 material.

And no, I'm not blinded by misguided nostalgia. I played this game 2 months ago



SergeOfArniVillage commented on Review: Yoshi's Story (N64):

This is a depressing game Think about it. Yoshi's have to go on an eating spree in order to stay alive. When they eat enough, they go into a drug-induced trippy-like state and pass out, only to wake up in another world. Poor Yoshi, so depressed he's turned to drugs. Anyway, this game is pretty good, about 7/10.



SergeOfArniVillage commented on Review: StarTropics (NES):

This is anything but a generic Zelda clone! It has a great style and personality all it's own, and I love it! The bizarreness only adds to the charm and playability, and the dungeons were also really cool. The story itself is throwaway, but the dialouge is funny and interesting. Good game!



SergeOfArniVillage commented on Review: Phantasy Star II (MD):

This is a really great game: it's style is undeniable. I remember being constantly shocked when I played this game: there wasn't a whole lot of dialouge, but many scenes, even the short scenes, are unforgettable. The game is constantly challenging, and that suits the atmosphere well. The music is the only weak thing about it, it's just throwaway stuff. Anyway, it's definitely worth picking up, for some old-school punishment!



SergeOfArniVillage commented on Review: Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (N64):

This game isn't quite as good as Kirby Super Star: that game is almost perfect, , but I think Kirby 64 is really great too! I loved how you could combine things to make really unique weapons, I loved the sheer personality of the game, finding the crystal shards was REALLY challenging to me (although maybe I'm just retarded, XD): yeah, I don't get why it got only 5/10, it honestly deserves more



SergeOfArniVillage commented on Review: Super R-Type (SNES):

This is an ok game, but it's not one I would bother downloading It's just not unique enough to really be any different from any other side-scrolling shooter, although the difficulty and R-Type add-on might make it worthwhile for some



SergeOfArniVillage commented on Review: Shining Force II: Ancient Sealing (MD):

I never played this game, but I did play the original, and I thought it was acceptably ok, but nothing really special. I thought that Sega's Phantasy Star was MUCH better: Shining Force felt generic and forced by comparison. Anyway, I might try this game and see if it's better



SergeOfArniVillage commented on Review: Secret of Mana (SNES):

I thought this game was really good! It made you feel like you were part of something special! And the boss battles were definitely the best parts, especially Thanatos and the Mana Beast XD I think the music is jsut ok, but the intro music is gorgeous, and the Meridian Dance is just classic, as well as the Thanatos' theme with the Lich!



SergeOfArniVillage commented on Review: Mega Man 3 (NES):

This is a really good game! In fact, all the 8-bit Megaman games are at least "good" even MM6, which is my least favorite But seriously, why not just get the Anniversary Collection instead of one game at a time on the VC? Lol!



SergeOfArniVillage commented on Review: Phantasy Star IV (MD):

This game deserves praise for taking RPGs into a strictly sci-fi genre. I remember playing Phantasy Star 2, and reviving my players, not by magic potions, but by genetic cloning O_O Pure genius! I think that the 2nd one is the best, but this one is good too. The plot was pretty interesting, the gameplay unique yet familiar, and most importantly, fun. It's a good challenge



SergeOfArniVillage commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (N64):

I think this is a very underrated game myself: the land of Termina was really, genuinely interesting, and it was a breath of fresh air in the gaming world. Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask are merely two sides of the same coin: they both complete each other. On their own, they are amazing, but the two N64 games really complement each other. Definitely a 10/10 game.
