  1. What Video Game Did You Last Play.

    The Public Domain Version of Rogue. Ever since I heard about Shiren the Wanderer, I've been trying to get used to Rogue and some roguelikes.
  2. Happy Thanks Giving Eveyone!

    Yes, we're having a rather small dinner as well. Parents and grandma. But still, it should be nice. Happy Thanksgiving to all!
  3. Street Fighter 4 Announced!

    Bit of an update from...a week or so ago, courtesy of Racketboy. http://www.racketboy.com/retro/sony/ps3/20...ix-updates.html Honestly, I hope SFIV at LEAST comes to the 360. Or Wii, as unlikely as it may be, as meppi said. But yes, apparently the game is being developed by an internal Japanese studio in Capcom. We still don't have many details, left only to speculate. Though the man interviewed DID say that you can "see hints of the developers' intended direction" by the trailer. 2.5d wouldn't be bad, but I'm still a bit partial to 2D. There's been quite a few good 3D fighters too, but I still enjoy 2.5D or 2D. As for if the genre is "dead," I'm probably a bit biased to the subject. I myself love fighters.
  4. Street Fighter 4 Announced!

    http://kotaku.com/gaming/finally/street-fi...rmed-311856.php And there you have it. Though I'll admit Kotaku isn't the most...objective source for gaming news, a Game Radar article is linked in the article. Just as well, a teaser trailer. http://www.gamevideos.com/video/id/15560 So while we don't have any gameplay footage - not to mention development probably not even started on it yet - we can dream. Or worry. Possibly both. I've had mixed feelings about a fourth Street Fighter. Can Capcom do it? No idea. I know the man who originally created Street Fighter and Street Fighter II left a while ago. Just as well, can more new elements be added to keep the series fresh? Who knows? Another issue: Stylized 3D on 3D plane, stylized 3D on 2D plane? Or ultradetailed 2D? I'd hope for the last, but I'm not sure if they'll be doing that or not. Either way, there's no denying I'm a bit excited by the announcement. Edit: Just found out not too long ago that apparently Capcom of America is handling the game. Make of that what you will. Either way, it's rather early to have much close to a good idea of what the game will be like.
  5. Top 5 Most Memorable Video Game Songs

    Being prone to nostalgia at times, I get that melancholy feeling from certain game songs. My five favorites? Sega Saturn - Sonic R This may sound like a weird choice. The game itself was only decent and not outstanding. The music, however, strikes a melancholy chord with me. This especially goes with the song "Livin' in the City." I can remember first hearing it when seeing a display of it in a Best Buy back in 1997. I think it was a Best Buy, anyway. I eventually got the game. I was, of course, 9 years old at the time. I still say it's one of the best soundtracks in a 3D Sonic game, even if that's not saying much. Sega Saturn - NiGHTS: Into Dreams What can I say? I still to this day find the music in this game to be beautiful, if a bit dated. Beautiful music for a beautiful game. Fitting, isn't it? Capcom - Many Systems - Street Fighter series Now, I'll be honest. I may be a bit biased here, being a fan of 2D fighters. But I absolute love the music in some of the Street Fighter games. Personal favorites are Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers, Street Fighter III: 3rd Striker, Street Fighter Alpha 3 and Street Fighter Alpha 2. Sega Genesis - Streets of Rage 2 Aw yeah. One of my favorite "club" soundtracks in a videogame. What can I say? Yuzo Koshiro's compositions can really help one get into this game more. It fits perfectly. Nintendo Gamecube - Metroid Prime Yes. Metroid Prime. The first one. I haven't played the other two, but from what I remember of the first, the music was wonderful. Its haunting ambience truly added a beauty to the environments, especially the snow area(sorry, forgot the actual name of it).
  6. October 2007 Gaming Purchases

    So far this month, I bought Sin and Punishment and Zelda: Phantom Hourglass as well. Both are quite fun. I was honestly quite happy to see Sin and Punishment being released on Virtual Console.
  7. Which Magazine Next?

    I like the idea of 80's-90's EGM. But I say Gamefan as well.
  8. What Weird Gaming Things Do You Have?

    Weird? Well, I guess the closest thing to off-beat were a few issues of the limited Archie Comics NiGHTS series. I guess the way that it's weird is, again, it was just six or so issues, each a mini-series. Oddly enough, it's what got me more into NiGHTS. The first time I played it, I shrugged it off. Then I read the comic, was more interested in the game. Glad to have played it and got into it now. So while it may not have been really a great comic (haven't read it in forever), it's got a nostalgic value for me. If that's weird enough. >.>
  9. Ultra Game Players?

    Does anyone remember the magazine Ultra Game Players? I searched to make sure a topic of this wasn't already posted, but I wondered if anyone remembered this one. One of the things I remember is that it had Bill Donahue in it. Not sure if he's still in PSM now or not. Anyway, I have vague memories of the magazine, being I was around 8 or 9 when I read them. What I remember is that it was quite humorous. Don't know what I'd think now, though. Thoughts, anyone?
  10. Does Anyone Remember This?

    While I don't have a scan, I definitely remember this one. I believe it might have been PSM? And if I'm correct, it was Aeris, not Tifa, with Cloud in the cartoon. If that's any help.
  11. New Members Introduce Yourselves

    Er...hello, I'm WiggumBeard. I heard of this place through Racketboy's Retro Gaming site. At risk of sounding like someone placing a personals ad... Interests include comics, videogames and movies(or "film;" I use both terms). Being a sucker for nostalgia, I'm quite happy to join this community. Glad to meet you all.
  12. Whats Everyone Watching On Tv?

    At the moment I'd have to say I'm mainly watching Heroes, Metalocalypse, Frisky Dingo and Astro Boy. To be honest, Astro Boy is the show I look forward to the most on Adult Swim Saturdays. I DO watch Bleach and Blood Plus, though honestly it's usually more used by me as background noise lately. I didn't watch the season premiere of House, either. :< Though I hope to have time to watch that regularly too.
