Motto: "May God have mercy on my enemies, because I sure as hell won't."
Gran Turismo 4:
OH MY GOD THE GRAPHICS ARE ORGASMIC.

I just finished Lesson B-5 for my B Liscence. Also, because this game is very hard to drive.

No, seriously. Project Gotham Racing 2 was relatively simple once you figured out how to drift and take turns slowly. This game, just because you drift, doesn't mean you can control it very well.

The graphics are orgasmic, though, so I'll let that slide.

Currently in the ghetto/slums, kicking Replica ass on my way to the Vault. I've decided to stop playing so cautiously, and am having a lot more fun rushing, 'nading, and roundhouse kicking. Holiday's right, I am a BMF.

Man, the fianl boss is extremely easy with Knuckles and Tails. When Knuckles is about to glide, he does a double jump/uppercut. Do that to Eggman's pod (the robot's head) about five times to win.

Made it through the Matar highlands and picked some Heartenbrace (after defeating a giant worm monster). Got to see a dragon save us by torching a group of those giant worms. Deus Ex Machina? Gave the HeartenBrace to Gena and it healed her heart, although she's still bedridden. Next stop, Milly's past.

Got a message from Geldoblame asking me to check out a disturbance at Dark Service HQ. When I arrived there, I found the ParaMachina running rampant. They've become self aware and are trying to destroy all the humans and can only be stopped by John Connor... I mean my team. :mrgreen:

Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes: started playing it again. Just watched Donald Anderson (Decoy Octopus) succumb to FOXDIE and Psycho Mantis take over Meryl.

Resident Evil 4: briefly encountered Ada Wong in a ramshackle house, killed a lake monster, and passed out in a cabin.

The Castlevania Adventure: Got to the Death Tower, remembered that the Castlevania Adventure sucks and turned it off.

Got past the first Coffee Break. Now I'm stuck on another 1-Lap guide.

This game is hard, but it's so....friendly. They don't scold you for failing a test, they just play the ending song from "Ferris Beuler's Day Off." And they don't go "DO THIS OR DIE, MOFO!" They say "Here, try this. No no, not that. This. Trust us, it'll work."

Is that a problem? Sounds better than most 'You mess up, we mess YOU up' games out there.

One more thing, and this is off-topic: I like your sig, but if you're trying to emphasize the old-schoolness, you might want to use the 8-Bit NES sprites. It'd be more hardcore that way.

It's not a problem, it's one of the perks to the game.

It must be nice not being scolded for failing, for a change.

Learned about Millie's past by visiting her childhood play area. Defeated a giant bird and restored some rocks she had moved as a kid. Turns out those rocks were petrified people. To thank us for reuniting them, they gave us an item that makes a user invulnerable for 10 hits. WHEE!

Sidequest time. Went back to Diadem and destroyed Nasca's Machina Arma, let him live. Went to Sadaal Suud and destroyed Heughe's arma, let him live. Currently in Anuenue fighting Valera's arma

I have just completed the moat intense race in all of my experience in racing games. The challenge was called the "Millionaire challenge" which is 124.3 mile challenge around the outside of the Hawaii island. You have 60 minutes to complete the challenge and I did it in 57'20"32 on a Kawasaki Motorcycle. The reward was $1,000,000.

Weren't the Diamonds second or third on the suit list? Its been a while since I played that.

That was a totally bitchin' game, though. I'd turn on God mode, infinite ammo, and do a trick I figured out to nab a chopper. Then I would KILL KILL KILL!

Gran Turismo 4:
Haven't progressed much with my Liscence, but I'm doing better in Arcade mode, which, suprisingly, isn't arcade style. I haven't won first place, but I've been doing much better than when I started. "Hey, where did the fifth place car go?"

Note to self: Don't play Nurburgring unless I've got 20-25 minutes to kill.

EDIT:
Twilight Princess:
Just got the Double Clawshot. Now I can do whatever a spider can!

Second suit. It's Clubs, Diamonds, Hearts, Spades.

I'm the same way, infinate health, infinate ammo, and either buy or steal a chopper (either from Merchant of Menace or there's a small, unmarked, NK outpost near the DMZ with two M-500s you can... borrow that I also use a lot), then......

Well, Mercenaries? What can I say? It satisfys even my appetite for destruction.

destroyed Valera's arma, thus gaining retribution for the asskickings I recieved before. Too bad they've apparently got a better weapon called Tarazed....

Went beneath the taintclouds to the village of Duhr. Learned the truth about the war of the gods, the origin of Guillo, and went inside the memories of a puppet named Seginus before accidentally activating him and having to fight him. But that new apotheosis combo I learned still kicks ass.

Just got the expansion pack installed and up and running. I still have to go in and configure the graphics, controls, sound, etc.

I can't wait to get into this game. And find out more about the story. So the Point Man is actually Alma's first child, the successful prototype that Aristide spoke of? That's some creepy stuff.
