Re: Horror Games: Is there such thing as too scary?

Good horror is when you are left utterly defenceless. Good horror makes you feel small and claustrophic, exposed to a world of evil with no escape. Good horror is something like HP Lovecraft, where you are utterly defenceless, and little more than a plaything for the creatures than inhabit the night.

that's not to say that you can't possibly fight back in a good 'horror' game. Clock Tower was creepy as all get-out, and there were still instances where the protagonist could use items she'd picked up in order to fight back and escape whatever was attacking her at the time. i think the meter that showed you how freaked out/tired from running she was helped to intensify the creepy-factor of that game -- it was hard not to pay attention to how she was feeling (and thus transpose it to yourself somewhat) when it directly affected how fast she could move around the screen.

Re: I NEED HELP!!!

theblackdragon

lol, relax man -- it's normal with glasses. that's how mine were when i first got 'em, and also when my prescription was updated. it'll take at least a week for you to get used to 'em, if not longer (in my experience, anyway). enjoy being tall for a while, hahaha :3

Re: Downloadable Music and Music channel?

@JadeGirl: but SMF96 has a point -- Nintendo's not going to be able to compete with Apple there, and if such a thing isn't going to be profitable for them, they're not going to be inclined to provide it.

Sony claimed this was a fake last week. no telling if they're running interference or not, though, i guess.

Re: Retail or Digital?

theblackdragon

Considering both were N64 titles, and Nintendo is only talking about GB and GBC games being available via download, i can't see them not being retail releases. another thing to consider is that Nintendo only just gave us information on the Virtual Handheld being officially available for 3DS, and they've been touting the remakes (as well as other retail titles) ever since E3; that could possibly be another official clue that these remakes will be retail.

Re: NOA leads to names of emulators?

theblackdragon

@Panda: given Nintendo's staunch anti-emulator stance, though, the fact that the article was linked to via an official Nintendo twitter account as-is is questionable. i'm surprised they didn't bother to request them to remove that part of the article before they linked to it; again, lol, someone must not've been paying attention.

@khaoz: i'm still not seeing the sarcasm... looks like a normal segue to me.

@Tasuki: technically, we're discussing the article, not the emulators.

Re: 'Party' games.

theblackdragon

one time we tried playing Mario Party on Wii, but it bored us, so we wound up going to Drunken Mario instead, lol (SMB, basically take a drink every time you die; the more you drink, the more you wind up dying, etc. and so forth >:3). usually Rock Band turns out to be more fun, though, especially with someone singing on the mic :3

@JumpMad: you can choose to just display your e-mail address (and not allow form e-mails), to just allow form e-mails (and not display your e-mail address), or to not display your e-mail address and not allow form e-mails. iirc, it's set to the latter by default.

Re: Personal Messaging

theblackdragon

When the forums are upgraded to be like Movemodo's, users will have the ability to set up their profiles to allow form e-mails, which will be sent to the e-mail address connected to your account. Until then, unfortunately, there is no PM option here at NL. a lot of us just use Backloggery to PM one another :3
