Scarecrow plays the LONG game fighting Batman.

I had to "delete" the download, and now the video is working correctly (as a streaming view).

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 January 2021 - 09:16 PM)

Strangest error? I downloaded the rental for Batman: Soul of the Dragon, and when I went to play it, it started an episode of Scarecrow And Mrs King. That show IS apparently part of my library (probably snagged it when Apple offered premiere episode for free), but I don't recall ever claiming it....

It's only murder if it comes from the Murder region of France, otherwise it's just suspiciously deceased.

That's the argument we keep making: but I still need to wait till feb 8th minimum to replace my holey underwear.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:57 PM)

Personally I'm glad Ontario wasn't so misguided as to try to define what is or isn't "essential" for big box stores like Walmart to sell. If someone is stuck at home literally for weeks and unable to go out, who's to say a new TV or game console isn't essential (if only for one's sanity) if theirs breaks down?

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:55 PM)

Although fortunately, Ontario's daily cases and positivity rate has been on a steady decline for the past week or so; if they can get the vaccinations back on track, there is some hope.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:53 PM)

And as far as Canada's lockdowns go, I'm guessing none of them will end until late March, or perhaps the beginning of April. What small businesses that might be left at that point will be allowed to open for their going out of business sales.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:52 PM)

Unfortunately the CEO of Target Canada made more money by running the company into the ground than he ever would have had he made it a success, so there was zero incentive to succeed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Target made some serious mistakes when they came into Canada. They focused on opening like 150+ stores within a 2 year timeframe and had no online infrastructure whatsoever; their website literally only contained legal blurbs and a store locator... lacking even the ability to see what they sold in stores, or if it was in stock and, if so, where. They should have started with 1/3 the number of stores with a full online experience including online shopping and inventory checking

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:35 PM)

See; quebec is under a new lockdown, have been since the 26th. It's supposed to end the 8th of february, but probably won't. Stores are only supposed to sell necessities (in deference to the stores which are closed.), but the quebec government made no effort define what counts as a "necessity", only punished them for getting it wrong. So I can buy all the candy I want, but not underwear, boots, winterwear, small appliances. Hell, my brother had to explain why he wanted a FUSE when he needed to fix his stove shortly before new years.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:31 PM)

Targets don't exist in canada anymore. They lasted like 3 years before abandoning the market. But even if they WERE still here: they would be under the same poorly defined restrictions as walmart.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

Portal - I mean, it was okay, but that's all. I didn't see what everyone else thought was so mind blowing about it, the puzzles were too easy.

Metal Gear Solid 3 - I don't care about Big Boss. I want Solid and Liquid Snake or no Snake at all.

GTA - Sure it's big, but there just didnt seem like there was a whole lot to do other than drive here, shoot there.

I'd say it's sad that people don't like MegaMan games. But I can't. There are too many that don't.

Course, the way I see it, long as you let me love them. Then I see no problem.

Twilight Princess... Well I liked it. It helped wash out the horrible taste that was Windwaker. (Heck I got WW for free, and it wasn't enough to keep it in my collection. I traded it for Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly. Well worth it I think)

But all Twilight Princess was, was basically Ocarina of Time 1.5 in a way. I enjoyed it, but wanted a lot more. I did enjoy the 'Dark' feel to the game however. But Ocarina of Time still remains my favorite Zelda. Now if I could only get Ocarina of Time redone itself with Twilight Princess graphics. That would awsome.

Lot of people have been mentioning they don't like Metal Gear Solid games. Frankly I lost faith in the francise after the second one. Was trying WAY to hard to make the story confusing.

One game that's not even really OUT yet that I don't get is Spore. I mean honestly I'm suppose to take care of a creature, then the enviornment, then more and more stuff? And that's the game?

That sounds stupid and boring as HELL. Why do these things sell? I've never understood the Sim games.

My sis likes/owns GTA (3, Vice City, 4); Sims, Sims 2 + expansion packs; much of the Tales series, via imports; some of the later Harvest Moon games; Shadow Hearts, all 3; has 2-3 FPSes; and that's just top of my head.

I never quite got into those, save just a bit on the Tales series. My own list includes LoZ: OoT, the RE series, Halo, ANY of the MMOs (especially WoW and Everquest), and various fighting games (even though I pwned 8 of my schoolmates in a row on Soul Calibur II on the GC despite being a button-masher).

My works! Lemme show you 'em!

Oh, and before anyone says it: No I didn't hate it for the Cell Shading. In fact that was one of the few things I liked about it.

I also don't get the whole 'GTA' thing.


I only got bored near the end when you had to go around collecting triforce pieces. if that section of the game was dropped, i'd have beaten it by now. Oh, and...

I'm torn on TP. I liked the look, and the concept, but...I dunno, it just wasn't as memorable as Ocarina of Time. I can rattle off the boss names for OoT in my sleep, as well as the main cast. TP? I remember...a plant thing and the giant spider, and that's it for bosses. Zora kid and the big lady at the bar for the cast outside of the obvious Link/Ganon/Zelda and Midna. TP just seemed so bland...You get no magic of your own outside of the Dominion Rod, and that only worked in the one dungeon. Music's role got booted down to being at the howl stones. I can't even remember their purpose anymore.

Maybe I'm pulling a "GeeWunner" thing here with TP 'cause OoT was my first Zelda game, but maybe not, since it seems I'm not alone in disappointment.

I could go on a very LONG list of all I hated in Windwaker. For those triforce peices I just used a walkthrough. I didn't care anymore at that point. It's also the only Zelda I never got all the upgrades for before beating it. I just didn't care anymore.

And I have to ask. You posted a pic of a transformer figure why? I'm not even sure who that is.

Half-Life 2

I played the original, it was good except for the end where it turned into total jive.

Then HL2 comes out, it received tons of game of the year accolades, high scores and even today people say its the greatest PC game of all time.

I don't see it, HL2 was so mediocre to me, the story was nice and I liked how it was in real time but everything fell short, the physics puzzles where just see-saws or looking for cinder blocks, the guns sounded terrible, especially the pistol since it sounded like a pop cap gun and once you got the gravity gun, it became the entire focus of everything all to show off the pretty physics engine.

And they sprinkled this with tons of obligatory vehicle sequences and every single one of them total jive.

I played HL2 through 3 times to see if I missed anything about it and each time I walked dissapointed, I seriously have no idea what is great about Half Life 2.

It feels like they made the gravity gun and the physics engine and some said, "Hey we need a game to put this in", outside of those 2 things, the rest of HL2 just feels like an after-thought.

Here's how I rate LoZ games from N64 onward.

OoT: You can't go wrong with this one. The only problem I have with it is that it can get a bit tedious at times with the constant dungeon after dungeon plot line. I like to have something other to do in a game then go search for dungeons. And the graphics are VERY dated. 3/5

Majora's Mask: Quite possibly the best LoZ game I've ever played. Interesting dungeons, masks that change your form, and the fact that it's so dark and serious. It's fun to be able to replay your favorite boss battles, and unlike OoT, the graphics have stood the test of time better. 5/5

Wind Waker: I loved this game. It's a perfect beginner's Zelda, due to the graphics and forgiving difficulty. The boss battles were very fun. The only part that annoys me was the Triforce Shards collecting quest. I wish they had cut that out. I don't really like the sailing, but it's fun to go island hopping and look for treasures. 4/5

TP: This one disappointed me. No classic Zelda tunes, Midna is a terrible character, and it's basically just a remake of OoT removing features I loved and replacing them with the rather useless Wolf form. Disappointing. 2/5


EDIT-Added stuff and changed my rating for OoT.

Chrono Trigger.

It's almost universally loved, but I didn't get the hype.

And I always hate anything Time Travel related.

On the flipside, I loved Chrono Cross, but everyone hated it.

Another universally loved game that didn't live up to the hype for me is Final Fantasy XII.

When it came out, everyone was raving about how this game will save the franchise.

10 hours in of running around doing NOTHING, I said hug it and haven't played it since.

And if I wanted an MMO Battle System, I'd buy an MMO, Square. This is why FFXIII going multiplatform isn't such a big blow for me.

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

It's funny, cause I couldn't disagree with you more. icon-hotrod.gif

I thought OoT was OK when it came out ten years ago but it's just barely passable today thanks to extremely dated graphics and annoying gameplay elements.

Majora is by far the worst Zelda Game not on a Phillips CD-I. It removed all of the parts I liked about OoT and replaced it with repetition and time limits. ugh.

Wind Waker was cool when you were on land, but every time I got on that boat I wanted to shut the game off. I much preferred the DS method of navigating the ocean.

TP is my favorite of the 3d Zelda games by a huge amount. I really liked Midna and totally got into the motion controls. Fighting the dragon boss with the double hookshot is one of my favorite Zelda boss battles of all time.

It's great how everyone that loves Zelda games loves them in different ways. Vive Le Difference!

You mean, just like every other Zelda game?

Hey, the Firefox spell check recognizes Zelda. Heh.

Most of my fun with OoT was poking around with all the myriad rumors running rampant. I must've tried a dozen tricks that were supposed to get the Triforce, heh. Seam-walking was also fun.

Majora's Mask is my favorite LoZ yet. I like being able to go back and redo whatever I want, whenever I want. The Goron races (and the fight with Goht) are always fun.

Wind Waker had a lot of good points. I like the art style (wouldn't want to see it become the standard, but it's nice for a one-shot game), and the dialogue from Ganon at the end was great. But the interminable "search for the Triforce" at the end kills any desire to replay the game. Supposedly, they originally planned dungeons for every piece, but ran out of time; I think I could've put up with a delay to get a better game, really.

Twilight Princess, again, had good parts. I must be the only one who liked the wolf segments, going by this thread. And some of the boss fights (especially the spinner fight with the giant skeleton, and the dragon in the sky temple) were great. But a lot of the game seems to drag, and I'm not especially motivated to complete everything. Also, DAMN YOU CAVE OF ORDEALS. Four Darknuts in one room? GAH.
