You know, while the Personality Ticks were part of my second least favorite mtmte arc, I'd love to see them show up in ROM

@  Xellos : (22 September 2016 - 05:25 PM)

Neon Tiger's stage music from Mega Man X3 was also pretty much straight from Guns 'N Roses' "My Michelle". X5 also renamed all the Mavericks as references to GNR.

@  Dracula : (22 September 2016 - 02:26 PM)

the band name is Journey btw.

@  Bass X0 : (22 September 2016 - 02:25 PM)

i never heard Journey before today (BBC R2 Ken Bruce Show) but recognised it immediately.

@  ShadowMan024 : (22 September 2016 - 02:15 PM)

Shade Man's theme sounds like a mariachi song.

@  ShadowMan024 : (22 September 2016 - 02:13 PM)

Yeah. Lots of Mega Man songs are copied from bigger songs.

@  Bass X0 : (22 September 2016 - 12:50 PM)

Did Capcom copy Elec Man's stage theme from Journey by Faithfully?

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 September 2016 - 11:33 AM)

bees are revolutionary force, wasps are mecernaries.

@  Rycochet : (21 September 2016 - 09:36 AM)

But wasps can survive stinging, it's why they're such b*****ds and will fly straight at you. Buzzy buzzy bees on the other hand...

@  Whirl Maximus : (21 September 2016 - 09:30 AM)

I was stung by a wasp yesterday and just got a letter from his family solicitor for manslaughter

There are worse mistakes to make!

@  ▲ndrusi : (21 September 2016 - 07:01 AM)

Ian saw that "see you turn into a Chris McFeely" post, didn't get the reference, and took it seriously.

@  Broadside : (21 September 2016 - 06:48 AM)

Action Man really ramped up the awful puns this issue. Maybe after McFeely died last issue, Ian took on his mantle?

@  Telly : (20 September 2016 - 05:29 PM)

been thinking of getting a soundbar. but what exactly do they do? are they like home theater systems but without satellite speakers?

@  MEDdMI : (20 September 2016 - 12:52 PM)

These days, there's Craig's List. (use at your own risk)

@  Bass X0 : (20 September 2016 - 12:46 PM)

I just remembered that the Marvel UK Transformers comic printed the full address of kids wanting to trade with other fans. Surely that wouldn't be allowed today?

I dont see any topics on this. This game is pure hard, and 100% awesome! The online help system, and being able to see how others died is cool. Did anyone else pick this up?

It's on my list for spring when I'll likely pick up a PS3. This, the Uncharted games, and a couple of others mean the system is finally hitting the threshold that, for me, warrants purchase.

OK, I'll expand on the gameplay.

Its alot like a rogue-like and Baldurs gate mixed together

You are meant to die, ALOT. Its never really feels unfair, though. Most times when you die, its because you rushed into a situation unprepared. Some enemies can kill you in one or two hits, but you learn to use your souls (currency) to level up your attributes, and your equipment.

Eventually you get further and further, and learn to observe the enemy attack strategies. When you die, you leave a bloodstain. Other people can touch the bloodstain and see the last few seconds of your demise while still playing in real-time. Your game is essentially offline, but you can see other players playing their game. They show up as white siluoettes in your game, you can see them briefly for a few seconds.

The deaths and brief glimpses can often times clue you in to ambushes and strong enemies, as strong enemies often times have numerous bloodstains in the area.

Other players can join your game for good or ill, but they have to have the items to do it. Its not something they can actively abuse, unless they farm the items.

You can also leave hints at any point, see a hidden treasure, leave a hint, strong enemy ahead, leave a hint...if others find your hint useful, they can recommend it, and you get a small real-time life restoration. You can gauge how useful a hint is by looking at how many times its been recommended. You can also simply ask for help, and people can recommend you, and get a life boost that way.

This game is like nothing I have played!

what I've read is a combination of original, awesome, and soul crushingly difficult.

I do look forward to playing it...this spring...

I picked this up a week or so ago. It;s really cool. THe grinding is so enjoyable and the risk reward system is nice. I haven't had a chance to play for an extended period of time but I am looking forward to the chance. I'm seeing it as one hell of a time sink...

Over half way through Ng +. Working on world tendencies. +9 purple flame shield plus any spear is mean mean mean. Throw the Northern regalia into the mix with a white or black character tendency and the damage gets pretty harsh. I realize that there are maybe three of us here playing/played this one, but wow is it a neat game.

I think the first level the first time it the hardest thing in the game...well 5-2 the first time is the hardest, but at least you know what to expect...but my point is, you get the game, everyone is talking about how hard it is ect ect. Add difficult gameplay to normal new game confusion and it can be painful.

As you come to accept the failure of dying and realize how easy it really is to recover from it the game becomes somewhat easy. Most the levels have built in check points in the form of short cuts that you activate by reaching a reasonable distance into the level...but yeah it's not for everyone.
