Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

That's BULLSHIT.

    apropos of nothing, I think Ratchet and Clank, i.e. the first game in the series has the best narrative

    the later games improve on the mechanics, and that's really what's important, but the narrative is pretty thin after on PS2
    full disclosure: I have not played any of the PS3 games

    Yeah, the first one probably had the best story.

    But my favorite (story wise) is still Up Your Arsenal because Dr. Nefarious is so good.

    yeah see my problem with Nefarious was that I just don't like "silly blundering mastermind"

    Whereas Drek, while a typical "menacing plutocratic corporate bastard", was executed in a pretty compelling way, I thought
    the voice was fucking perfect

    uh but yeah, Ratchet basically just shifts to a slightly different kind of soldier each time after the first game
    I guess personalities just stabilize after a while, but compared to the first game, there was hardly any character development at all in the sequels

    Wow that's pretty sad.

    I saw it when I wasn't a kid, maybe that matters? All of the faux commotion and yelling is just really annoying. Short Round is annoying. The fat kid is annoying. Half of the movie is the group trying to create a sense of chaos and it's really hammy and dumb.

    this isn't even a bad opinion, you need to see a doctor

    Alan Rickman and Emma Thompson were about the only two good things about that movie

    but their storyline made me sad

    One of the things I loved about MMX is how the the bosses would actually be affected in different ways when hit with the weapon they were weak against. It didn't just take off more damage, it actually did stuff.

    Like how Chill Penguin actually caught on fire, Spark Mandrill actually froze, etc.

    I never understood the love for the Goonies, it's just kind of a mediocre 80s movie. I put it about on par with Little Monsters

  • JansonJanson Registered User regular
    Many 80s movies - BTTF, Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Die Hard, any teenage/high school drama, etc etc I didn't see until I was at least 16, in many cases not until my mid-twenties

    so no nostalgic value attached

    it is good to see how many are legitimately good movies

    the boomerang cutter also does some cool stuff

    you can cut off:

    you know, it's funny, indiana jones in the first movie is completely incompetent

    literally fails at every turn

    if had never even gotten involved, the nazis would have dug up the ark, opened it, everyone dies, the end

    but he's much more proactive and effective in the second movie

    yet this is the one nobody likes

    yeah

    the effect on flame mammoth is pretty negligible since he almost never uses his oil attack anyway, and the best possible strategy to beat him renders it irrelevant even when he does (that is, stay on the wall in the corner that the conveyer belt is moving AWAY from-it is impossible for him to hit you. drop down and shoot him in the ears with storm eagle's weapon right after he jumps and it'll hit him twice. do this well and not only will you never take a single hit, but you'll beat him in the most efficient time possible)

    but it's extremely useful on launch octopus, as it keeps him from using those damn homing fish and his whirlpool attack

    for the record, the rolling shield, which you're supposed to use on launch octopus, is worse than the buster since one missile destroys it and it can't be rapid-fired

    Love Actually is probably a little less bad than other Richard Curtis films

    In the same way that, say, getting shot in the leg is probably a little less bad than getting shot in the head

    I never got that good at it, but I knew where all the hidden stuff was. I think I still do, actually

    I tried playing it on the PS2 collection earlier this year and couldn't get past the first part of Spark Mandrill's stage. I must've been sick or something

    You should watch Aliens, at least, it's a really good movie

  • JansonJanson Registered User regular
    I know Mori loves Big Trouble in Little China, and we own it, so I'll no doubt watch it one day

    I've either seen Alien or Aliens (not sure which), and it was not my thing, but I will give it a go (I've also seen the fourth film, again, didn't like it).

    Let's not go into the fourth one.

    But the first is the bunch of miners on their ship, trapped with the lone Alien roaming throughout the inner structure.

    Aliens is when the survivor from the first film is brought in with marines to investigate the loss of contact with a colony on the planet they first discovered the Alien eggs.

    If you didn't like alien/aliens then that is no reason not to see aliens/alien

    As they are very different films

  • DruhimDruhim Registered User, ClubPA regular
    Big Trouble in Little China isn't that good of a flick, but I still love it.

    It really is remarkable that Alien/Aliens are such good films in completely different genres.

    I mean, it's remarkable that a sequel is in a different genre entirely. That both are also such exemplar examples of their genre is simply inconceivable.
