But with some games simply overwriting the old saves isn't enough. They have it set so that stats would still be carried over. The idea being to discourage people from buying their games used. It's a nasty trick. I don't know why they feel like the have to start introducing shit like this now.

Removing the cart while saving isn't harmful. It just means that the save file wont be fully written, so next time you boot up the game it will recognise this, tell you there's a corrupt save file and ask for your permission to wipe the data.

Finished completing Mass Effect 2, for the second time today.

Left me with an empty, depressing feeling. Same thing happened when I finished inFamous 2.

Well so far Sound Shapes is my game of the year. I really wasn't expecting this game to be so addictive and this level editor to be something I'd pay much more than $15 for. Fan fucking tastic. If you have a Vita you need to buy this. It's also available on PS3, but I think it's much more suited for the Vita. Also if you buy it on one you get it for both.

I was going to say that I've never heard of it, then you mentioned the Vita. I've really not been following that system at all. How is the library of games for that thing coming along?

My copy of Deadly Premonition just arrived. So eager to get started on this, but I'll probably wait until after lunch. It was listed as a used copy but this thing looks like it has never been touched. I mean there was literally not a single mark on the disc. No minor scratches, no partial fingerprints from where it has been lifted and the manual is pristine. Somehow I get the feeling this was taken out the seal and never used.

Also, because of Jackho hounding me (damn it Jackho) I ended up ordering a copy of Final Fantasy VII off of eBay. Surprised nobody snatched it up because it was a buy it now that had been listed for a few days. £13 including postage and I've been watching auctions for FF VII end higher than that excluding postage. It's a black label version and comes with the manual. Only one downside is that there's a crack on the front of the case and some nasty looking sticker residue that I'll be struggling to remove. As for the crack though, they're pretty much expected on PS1 cases. I wouldn't be surprised if it gains a few more when it's travelling through the postal system.

I've never been a massive Final Fantasy fan, although the games I've played aren't the most highly rated one. If I don't enjoy VII then I'll pretty much give up on that series. I'll maybe give IX a chance if I can get a copy at a reasonable price.

There aren't exactly a lot of Vita games out and there isn't much releasing soon. LittleBigPlanet and Assassin's Creed III: Liberation are the only two I can think of, coming out in September and October. Thing is, a lot of people are saying the Vita doesn't have any games for it, but there's a library of hundreds of PSP games and a couple hundred PS Mini games. The Minis are like high quality phone games. So there's a lot to buy if I feel like playing something on this. Oh, and the Vita is really nice for watching YouTube videos since this YouTube app was released, and web browsing is decent so I have something I can use it for without games.

I've not put a name idea down. I'm sure there's loads of awesome name suggestions already. Also, seen the screenshot preview of the remake? Very faithful to the original but I'll need to see the rest before judging that. I'm hoping they consider adding more secrets to give a challenge to the experienced Oddworld players. For now, I'm just going through Stranger's Wrath for the second time hoping I get a platinum trophy. I'm on hard mode this time and the bosses in this game don't show any mercy, especially when you want to capture them.

I'll definitely give it a shot. If you're a plus member, you can get it for $12. There is only one thing that would pretty much convince me to buy a game, to do whatever the hell you want (well, to that game's design). This usually involves open world or having map editors. I do love music rhythm games, so yeah why not? I only have 2 games on the vita anyway.

I couldn't think of a decent name either but the contest's over now anyway. Can't wait to see what they chose, looking through the comments nothing really stood out but I'm sure there's a few creative ones . More secrets would be nice but all I'm really hoping for is the addition of the "All of ya" command, an admin in the comments mentioned they would be adding extras but nothing huge.

I still haven't played Stranger's Wrath properly due to the PC version being complete ass.

I just beat Crisis Core in preparation of my FF VII copy arriving although it's still not marked as dispatched. I have to admit, I really did enjoy the ending. I thought it was actually really well done, although I guess people who'd already beaten VII would have known what to expect.

Oh well, that's another game to mark off my massive backlog as complete. Now I'll probably focus my attention on Deadly Premonition until FF VII arrives. Not a massive FF fan as I'm sure I've already mentioned but the ending to Crisis Core really got me interested to see what happens next.

I'm going to guess that you don't have a PS3. I could have sworn there was going to be a HD patch eventually for Stranger's Wrath on PC but after that disastrous port, I wouldn't even hold my breath. I shouldn't even have to buy the game a second time just to be able to play the damn game but it's Oddworld and I'm willing to give them extra support. I'll even buy Munch's Oddysee HD when it's released on PSN despite already going through it on PC.

On a separate but related note, fuck ATI.

Is it me or am I seeing a few advertisements from game developers recently? I'm not talking about any spam bots making shitty advertisements here or a major game developer (lol at that thought) but more of the smaller guys wanting some exposure. I don't mind them wanting to try and get their name out there but I did lock one thread seeing as he promoted his flash game on Newgrounds and in cases like that, it's best you go over to a place where you can get some genuine reviews.

I don't mind hearing out from users here and what they think of any small developers trying to promote themselves on the video games forum.

I just bought Divine Divinity from Steam, and I know absolutely nothing about that game. I swear Valve has some kind of mind controlling rays going on there that make you give them all of your money.

Alright, guys. I've purchased and built a new computer that I can now properly run games with, so I figure now's a good time to dip my toes into PC gaming and try out the games I've never gotten the chance to play.

So what are some "essential" PC games I should be on the lookout for?

You could start with the big one, Deus Ex, if you have yet to play it. The S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series is also great. If you're more into strategy games, I whole heartily recommend any version of Civilization.

God-fucking-dammit! There are reasons why at times I try to avoid the hardest games out there and I really went through a lot of torture last night on Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath on hard mode. I had one boss beating me like a hundred times since I'm stuck in a small room and all it takes is three hits to kill me quickly. When there's a dozen enemies shooting at you, you can bet it's a pain in the ass. I only hope the other bosses aren't that hellish on hard mode.

Boss in question at 7:30

As much as I love video games, I also fucking hate them. Having invested 27 hours in Grandia I'm now stuck on a boss. I can't go back and grind because I'm trapped in this area. The only thing for me to do is fight this boss but I'm quite probably slightly under-levelled and I'm only just realising how badly I've built up my characters. I changed strategy in each attempt I made and none of them were any more successful than the others.

It's frustrated me enough for tonight but I'll attempt it again tomorrow. I'm going to be so incredibly pissed off if it turns out that I have screwed myself over 27 hours into the game. Situations like this should not be allowed to arise.

On the plus side, if I do get so pissed off that I rage quit I'll finally get around to starting Final Fantasy VII. However, it wont stop me feeling so frustrated at all the time I wasted trying to beat Grandia.

Dean, I have just always dreaded boss fights. They can sometimes be very interesting and a good challenge, but most of the time I find myself getting the most angry during them, which means I want to stop playing. Every time I've quit a game because I couldn't get through a certain point, it was due to a boss fight. Boss fights in JRPGs sound like a whole new level of frustration.

Boss battles aren't something that usually bother me until I get closer to the end of JRPGs. You can usually tell when you're getting to the end of a JRPG because the bosses just seem to exponentially raise in difficulty. Although I often think that just comes down to me not grinding. I never grind in games and in a lot of cases it feels like you have to.

Anyway, you can pretty much ignore my last post. I was so annoyed at the thought of me not finishing Grandia that I had one final attempt at the boss and somehow did it. Tried a tactic that I never thought would work and it actually did.

The boss was basically a four headed dragon. Previously I was attacking the heads individually, specifically the one that casts the healing spell. This time I just ignored all the heads and focused on the body. I expected to get wiped out in a couple move but it actually worked.

Just beat the next boss as well :P

Thinking about buying this SNES with 2 controllers, Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country, Populous, and Super Conflict for $75. I've never even played a SNES before and it looks like the perfect console for me to play some great, older games I missed out on. Based on this picture, the thing doesn't even look yellowed at all as most SNESs do. It's also not on eBay, so I'd actually be picking it up myself, which I prefer.

I'd like to start collecting, but SNES games seem pretty damn expensive based on what I've seen on eBay. Hm...

I'm almost positive that it's a lot cheaper to collect for SNES or even NES on your side of the pond. Over here, Sega was always the biggest brand and Nintendo stuff now has the higher price when it comes to collecting for those systems. I've never played a SNES myself but if I had the money to collect for it, I definitely would. I reckon it's up there as being one of the best consoles ever. If not THE best.

Playing Final Fantasy VII for the first time and I'm really liking it so far. It seem to have some kind of unexplainable charm that makes me enjoy the game. Definitely doesn't seem to be the sort of older game that requires a nostalgia to enjoy these days.

Never finished Grandia which is irritating. I'm literally at the last bit of the game. Apparently there are three bosses in a row with no save/recovery point inbetween. If that's true, I don't think I'll make it. I've still not managed to defeat the first boss and that includes using up all my SP and a good chunk of my MP on all party members.

The 16-bit era is definitely one you must play through, it's probably my favourite video game generation. Over here you could pick one up for a range of 40-50 bucks. Same goes for a Sega Genesis.

I've always thought it might be my favourite console if I tried it. I don't know how different the Genesis is, but it seems pretty equal. I'm more interested in the games for SNES over the Genesis though.

The games look like some of the most well aged games out there. It really sucks to have missed this whole generation.

Yeah while for the first few years of my life we had a Sega Genesis I didn't actually get a Super Nintendo until earlier this year so I missed out on a lot in my younger years as well. But there are definitely some 16-bit masterpieces out there that have been in the shadows for way to long.

So it seems Black Isle Studios is coming back. At first I was happy but now I realize the name is probably just going to be used as a cash cow, considering Brian Fargo is working on Wasteland 2 with inXile and most of the original team is now in Obsidian.

Well that guy sold his SNES to someone else. I found another one and it had the box for the console and an extra controller with a box. He had it with a bunch of other Nintendo stuff and didn't list prices, just asked for people to contact him and he hasn't responded to me.

Tomorrow I'm borrowing my brother's PS3 and buying Uncharted 3 and inFamous 2. These are two games that could be two of my favourite games of all time. I haven't had a PS3 in a while so I couldn't play them, but I loved the previous games in both series. I just bought Sleeping Dogs on release, but I think I'm going to trade it in tomorrow since I've done everything I possibly could in it and buy the Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Collection. I played a couple minutes of Ico when I was a kid, but these are another two games that that could be favourites of mine that I haven't gotten to experience. I also want to get Journey on PSN, and maybe Payday: The Heist. A friend of mine who owns a PS3 wants me to get Gotham City Imposters... maybe...

I'm not quite sure how long I'll be borrowing this console, but my brother has a ridiculous backlog of games for Xbox 360 that he needs to get through. He has a ton for PS3, Gamecube, and N64 too. He has so many games that he hasn't even opened as well as some that I've opened for him so I could play them, but he hasn't touched. Whatever, I'll keep his PS3 as long as I need it. I'll be borrowing it again for the releases of PS3 exclusives, which he's awesome for letting me do.

and nobody cares :)

I do sort of wish I had a PS3 just so I could play one game. Metal Gear Solid 4. It was only this summer that I played through the previous MGS games and I can see why people love them. I think it probably gets a spot up there as being a potential favourite series of mine.

The Shadow of the Colossus and Ico Collection does sound cool. I'm sort of picky about that though and I'd rather have the original games but it would probably work out cheaper to buy the HD remakes over here. I'm not really sure how the logic behind that works but whatever.

I was playing through Final Fantasy VII and still am but I got a little side tracked yesterday. Decided to spend more of my free time improving my web development skills. I guess I'm trying to turn it into a hobby so that I actually have a "worthwhile" hobby, I guess you could call it. Not sure how long this will last thought because I was extremely close to finishing a Java project that I started a while back before I abandoned it. I posted screen shots a while back. Basically a program aimed at collectors so they could keep track of what games that have. If I keep up with this web development thing, I might make an online version although services like that already exist.

Yeah, I paid £25 for the special editions on PS2 a few months ago. A quick Amazon search shows you can get the PS3 variant for around a tenner less.

Started posting in this section more so I thought I'd stick my head in the regs lounge.

Decided that limiting myself to 100 PS2 games is stupid as there are a bunch more I want to play. So, bought another stand, made a list of another thirty games or so and went into town today so I could see how many I could find. Baring in mind how many places still sell PS2 games these days, I think I did alright. Ended up with:

Headhunter Redemption
Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty
Max Payne 2: The Fall Of Max Payne
Quake III Revolution
State Of Emergency
Tomb Raider: Legend
Unreal Tournament

In total it worked out less than £2 a game - bargain! Since the games are so cheap these days, I'll probably add most of the rest to my collection over the next few weeks. They are:

Age Of Empires 2
Cold Fear
Contra: Shattered Soul
Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath Of Cortex
Crazy Taxi
Devil May Cry 2
Devil May Cry 3
Die Hard Vendetta
Dog's Life
Fahrenheit
Fallout: Brotherhood Of Steel
God Hand
Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy
Jak II: Renegade
Manhunt 2
Mercanaries 2
Mortal Kombat: Deception
MX Unleashed
NBA Street 3
NFL Street 3
Okami
Onimusha 3
Primal
Project: Snowblind
Project Zero
Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy
Ratchet & Clank
Ratchet & Clank 2: Locked & Loader
Rayman Revolution
Soldier Of Fortune: Gold Edition
Sonic Heroes
Spyro: Enter The Dragonfly
Syphon Filter: The Omega Strain
The Mark Of Kri
The Suffering: Ties That Bind

Think I'm becoming a bit obsessed with this whole collection lark.

I know that feeling. I'm up to 575 games just now (for various systems) and it will soon be 576 when Final Fantasy IX arrives. I'm pretty certain that I'll be cutting back on the number of games I but from this point on. I mainly got back into game collecting because it gave me something to do over the summer but with uni starting soon I'm going to be back to having no free time.

Although it looks like I'll be getting Tuesdays off next semester. RESULT! Although it's a bit of a shitty day to have off. Weekend off, up early on Monday then back to having Tuesday off. I guess it will makes my weeks seem pretty short though.

Because of a fucking tutorial, I got stuck in Uncharted 3...

A grenade was thrown near me so I started running away, then this tutorial pops up telling me how to throw back a grenade and of course I'm far away from it so I can't throw it back and now I have to restart the game. What in the fuck?
