Meant to include this in my last post but forgot.

Today is a great day. There's a copy of The Story of Thor sitting in my Mega Drive!

I haven't played a huge number of Mega Drive games. I've maybe played about 50 and most of them were on the Mega Drive compilation for Xbox 360. Of all the games I have played though, The Story of Thor (or Beyond Oasis if you're American) is by far my favourite. I'd say that this is probably the Mega Drive's equivalent of A Link to the Past. It really is a great game and it has really nice, colourful graphics too. I'd highly recommend this to anyone who's looking for an old-school action RPG.

So pleased to finally have a copy of this game!

Get The Lion King. It's Nintendo Hard.

I bought Halo 4 recently, but I'm having trouble playing it, I keep going back to GTA IV where I just fuck about on the swings. My housemate is going to buy an Xbox, he wants a JTAG'd one, but he'll settle for buying a stock one and just flashing the drive himself in order to save a fair share of money (but missing out on Homebrew and the like), so I don't imagine I'll actually have to buy a lot of games, other than those that I think deserve my money and I can get rid of a lovefilm subscription assuming he's cool with me using his Xbox (he works nights so...).

I'm so gutted about GTA V getting pushed back, but I don't want a TDKR experience again (getting it, thinking it's the best shit ever and then when I really think about it, it has a lot of faults and could have been a lot better), I definetly prefer a better game than an earlier game for sure.

Has anyone been following The Last of Us? It looks to be amazing, kind of like I Am Alive but not rushed and awful. It's your basic End-of-the-World kind of game (it has a vibe really similar to The Road if you've ever seen that) and you (A man named Joel) basically are escorting a teenage girl (14 year old Ellie) out of the city. You've got 2 types of enemies really, you've got other survivors who'll kill you for your stuff (and I seriously imagine the possibility of raping Ellie), the combat looks to be very realistic, you can pistol whip and throw punches, but it all just looks so natural. You can hold up enemies and take hostages with guns, and you can make weapons and tools like a Molotov Cocktails if you have the right ingredients. The second type of enemy are the "Infected", people who have been infected with a virus or fungus that is somewhat similar to the horrifying Cordyceps Unilateralis, the basic infected just attack as a person would (although they're not really themselves anymore), but they tend to cough a lot which is dangerous if you're too close. Then you get "The Clickers", these bastards have been infected for about a year now, over the years the fungus has deformed their heads horribly, first escaping from your eyes, which makes them blind, but they make a clicking sound, in order to track prey with some form of echolocation. These things are found in the dark, and it is shit scary.

The game just looks awesome, check out the gameplay videos.

Gameplay 1 - This mostly shows off some of the puzzle mechanics in the first quarter and then human enemies after that.
Gameplay 2- Motherfucking Infected and Clickers

See, I don't really like games that are intentionally hard. I have a few platformers on the Master System and Mega Drive that I'll probably never beat because I can never be bothered to keep replaying the same levels after every game over.

Today really has been an awesome day for me though. Because it was snowing here this morning I didn't bother travelling up to Edinburgh to go to uni, so I took the day off. Then the postman arrived carrying everything that I ordered from eBay over the weekend which was a surprise.

The Story of Thor arrived, as you could tell by my previous post, along with The Story of Thor 2 on Sega Saturn, Darksiders II and Tales of Vesperia. I've probably mentioned them in a previous post at some point. Been playing Story of Thor and it's great. Definitely my favourite Mega Drive game. Also really can't wait to get into Tales of Vesperia because it just looks so pretty.

But yea, more pics from me. People should post pics of their gaming related stuff more often. I like seeing pics.

Got Borderlands (The First). Even with friends, the game is mind-numbingly boring. I don't get why people like it so much.

I managed to beat The Lion King as a kid, even if it was frustrating as hell.

k.

My PS2 games collection is drawing closer to completion. Just nine games left to get. Unfortunately four or five of them are pretty expensive (compared to what I'm used to paying), so it might be a while before I pick those ones up. Not that I need them mind. According to backloggery, I've still got 105 games that are either un-completed or un-played. Wow.

I remember that game. I had it on PC.

I could never get passed the second level where you had to growl at monkeys so they would throw you in certain directions. Perhaps I had a demo or a broken version though, because when I look at a let's play now I'm sure I've reached the end of the level several times. For some reason I always got dropped in the water.

Anyway, yeah it was a very challenging game from what I remember.

Limiting yourself is a bad idea in my experience. You'll inevitably find out about something else you want, or your tastes will change.

Nice collection too, but regular shelves have ten times more swag.

Pics were requested, so here's what I got in the last day or two.

The one I'm most interested in is Sweet Home (the capcom game in the middle), it's a horror-RPG based on some probably lame japanese horror film, but it's often credited as the first true horror game and the inspiration for Resident Evil. Some even go as far as to say Resi is a remake of Sweet Home. Cost me a little more than I'd have liked but it could've been worse, the cartridge alone often goes for $25 or more.

I only gave Shin Megami Tensei II a quick go to check it was working but I could already tell it's going to be a tough game, and it has fucking awesome music. Never played an SMT game before so I'm looking forward to that.

Out of curiosity, what are the games you're still needing?

Also, how do you find those DVD racks? I was going to buy some of those but my brother has some and he said that they were bad from leaving scratch marks on the box's plastic sleeves. I know that's nothing major but I hate any kind of unnecessary damage to things. Still, it'd never be as bad as the time I scratched my near mint Majora's Mask box :(

Chances are it won't stay that way. My last limit was 100 but I found a few more games I wanted, bought another shelf and the new limit was 150. If it happens again I'll just buy another one and go up to 200.

At 2/7/13 01:48 PM, Dean wrote: Out of curiosity, what are the games you're still needing?

Off the top of my head, Contra: Shattered Soldier, Obscure, Fahrenheit, Pyschonauts, Baldurs Gate: Dark Alliance, Ape Escape 2, God Hand, Spyro: Enter The Dragonfly and Crash Bandicoot: Wrath Of Cortex (the last two are purely for nostalgic purposes).

Also, how do you find those DVD racks?

I like them. The ones I have aren't tight enough to cause any damage to the case, my only real criticism would be that the odd one comes bent slightly meaning a couple of games don't fit as well as the rest. Other than that they look cool, display the games nicely and prove ample storage.

I completely forgot about those monkeys, I had so much trouble with that part as well. I managed to eventually get past it but it took many lives.

This also reminds me of an incident in 102 Dalmatians for the PSX. It was the second level in the toy store and I reached the end of the level numerous times but it wouldn't register as complete. I figured that there was something that I was missing but not when I checked online, I think I must have received a bad copy of the game or maybe there was some error in a certain batch of discs. I don't know.

I've heard a lot of good things about Sweet Home, keep us posted on how it plays.

So, recently I've got this urge to save munnies and get my slim PS2 fixed...and I'm looking to get some awesome/underrated games.

So far I got Persona 3 and 4, and the original Kingdom Hearts.

Any suggestions?

don't include or suggest special edition versions of the game since Malaysia is the worst place to find authentic PS2 games

If you like RPGs you'll probably want to throw Dragon Quest VIII on your list of games to look out for. I've still not got around to playing it yet but it seems to be known as a great game.

If I have a quick look through my PS2 collection, there's a few other games I'd say are worth looking out for:

Deus Ex
Grandia II
Star Ocean: Till The End of Time
Ys: The Ark of Napishtim

There are more, but those a few few of the better games that probably weren't so mainstream.

Coolio. I don't know why but lately I'm into J-RPGs than anything else...speaking of which I'm looking to get some "Tales of..." games. Any specific titles I should be looking at?

I've only played one Tales game and that was Tales of Eternia on the PSP (also on PSX if I remember correctly) but I thought it was great so I'd definitely recommend giving it a shot.

As for other JRPGs, if you're interested in tactics I'd advise looking at the Front Mission 3 and the Disgaea series of games.

Well, I'm playing Tales of Vesperia right now on Xbox 360 and it's great. If the PS2 Tales games were available in your region then I say they'd definitely be worth checking out. Unfortunately, I don't think the UK got any of the PS2 games games. We got Tales of Symphonia on the GameCube.

Strangely enough, I don't know much good mainstream games for the PS2.

There are loads:

Bully, Devil May Cry 1-3, Final Fantasy X & XII, God of War series, Grand Theft Auto series, Hitman series, Max Payne series, Metal Gear Solid series, Red Faction, Scarface, Silpheed, The Getaway, The Godfather, The Warriors and Timesplitters series to name a few.

Perfectly playable with a controller. This was one of my favourite PS2 games when I was younger. The PC version is obviously better but I definitely wouldn't say it's bad enough to not want to play.

Not the controller that's the problem, it's the game itself. Have you tried to play it lately?

Just beat The Story of Thor. Fantastic game but it does get quite a bit more challenging towards the end. Still, the final boss battle wasn't that hard or I just got lucky. This is definitely my favourite Mega Drive game so far!

The only gameplay differences I can think of are the simplified interface, key codes and passwords not being manually entered and the maps are split into smaller areas divided by loading screens. I think the maps might actually be a little different too. The PS2 version actually has better cut scenes and in-game graphics than the PC version (without mods).

The only reason that I can see people overlooking Deus Ex on PS2 is because they pay too much attention to PC elitists.

You know that whole "every time you mention it, someone re-installs it" thing? Yeah, that cuts out the part where you install 20 different mods to make it bearable. Vanilla Deus Ex has aged horribly, someone who plays the PS2 version at this point will almost certainly be turned off.

PS2 version also has bad aiming and a lower framerate. Just saying.

Hell, I think I have the last two on that list of yours. Whether they're still playable or not is another question entirely (I was a little more reckless when I was five years old). I think I may have Dark Alliance also.

I thought those games would be pretty common, to be honest.

Typical. I tell myself that I'm going to hold off on buying more games for a while and what do I do? I start looking on eBay and find a ton of games that I've been wanting for a while, so now my watch list is pretty massive and I've already won 4 games. Thankfully they are all games that I've been wanting for a while and I did get them all at a decent price. I just can't wait for them to arrive; some more than others. Also hoping that I can win a few of the games on my watch list that are ending today.

I wont reveal what any of them are just yet because in an attempt to get people posting more images of their gaming related stuff, I'll post an image once a few of them arrive.

I think Contra: Shattered Soldier will be hard to find a PAL copy of. I can't seem to find many copies on Amazon or eBay although Amazon seems to have cheaper prices for the few copies that are there.

So I did my voluntary work at a local indie game shop. Was meant to be looking out for comments/messages to the shop's Facebook page but I ended up tidying the whole place by sorting out their stock for all the games and for each platform they had available. Didn't get much chance to pop in conversations about any games to customers and only spoke to the store owner for most of the day but she's a nice person so I enjoyed working with her today. I look forward to helping out again in two weeks time (it's a two weeks basis to allow more people to volunteer for the shop).

Things got a little out of hand for me tonight. My eBay habit strikes again. I was originally trying to get my hands on a SNES with 15 games but instead I stumbled upon copies of Tales of Symphonia and Skies of Acradia: Legends on GameCube that had just been listed. They were buy it now and each was about £10 less than the typical auction ending price so I snatched those up right away. Unfortunately for me, they are fairly expensive RPGs compared to the games I usually buy. Still, they've been at the top of my wish list ever since a got the GameCube so it's nice to finally have them, assuming they arrive.

I also managed to get a Gameboy player for my GameCube which is cool because now I can play my old Gameboy games on the TV screen which will make the far more appealing.

That SNES and 15 games I mentioned earlier just sold for £113. If those copies of Skies of Arcadia and Tales of Symphonia didn't appear at take my money, I'd have won that SNES. Ah well, I'll get a SNES one day!

Also, the postman is going to hate me. He has like 8 parcels to bring me now.

That sounds pretty cool actually. Do they stock any retro stuff, more specifically 16-bit era stuff? Working in a game shop would be pretty interesting I reckon. It'd be the sort of place where you could try and convince customers to by things that you actually give a shit about.
