Re: The Official WTF are YOU playing right now thread

Shinobi on normal is pretty fucking hard. Not arcade hard, as you get save points and unlimited continues, but still controller-breaking shit all over the place. The thing is to really kill the bosses you have to grasp (and be good at) the chaining concept which us shooting nerds would welcome. I fo...

Re: Blaster Master Zero

Dude... teach them chaining or put them up for adoption!

Told myself I was gonna get a switch and play SM Odyssey, but still working on the house. Will probably hook up my XBox and play JSRF soon... kinda got a hankering for it and little else.

Re: Shit that makes me LOL

Damn! Forgot about this thread as well.. I have tons of LOL worthy stuff but they're usually on the phone and kind of cubmersome to share here... unfortunately. Most are all extra NSFW as well, and I can no longer do such things on the clock w/ my job here. I'll see if I can't find some stuff. I thi...

It's especially great when vinyl shipping boxes are seemingly perfect for your PCBs.


Back in my earlier nerdy days those were known as LD boxes. :)

Is Ninja Gaiden Black the same caliber of difficulty as Shinobi on the PS2? That was a bit of a whore.

Re: Japanese Gaming Sites

But I'm sure there must be some explanations other than "the small screen of phones" and "PCs are not popular" for Japanese website design. I only have to point out Chinese Internet websites which look equally shitty. Maybe it's some cultural preference. After all, just because ...

Re: Ghost in the Shell Live Action Trailer

I'm also a big fan of the anime movie end fight (battling the Tachikoma under gentle rain in the museum) which is basically anime action perfection so if the movie reused that scene too, I doubt it's anywhere as good as the original. I'm not going to check to confirm. I'll just say... you pretty mu...

Re: Japanese Gaming Sites

I'm going to take an educated guess and say that's because Japan (mostly) doesn't use computers, as in desktop and to a lesser extent notebook/tablet PCs. . These days there is plenty of internet-ing on mobile devices. The problem is (to a large extent) Japanese started all their internet activitie...

Re: Nintendo Switch

There's a discussion at shmups about it -- glad to see it back on a console, and it would be a contender for me to purchase. One of the few PS3 games I bought and enjoyed. I was just not into that system.

So that begs the question: what else is there for the system? Another Pikmin would make me buy it I'm sure... but I said that about the Wii U and never got one of those.

My son is finally playing his games. He's about to clear Super Mario 3d Land, but he basically watches Youtube and then does it himself. However, this is a massive fucking improvement from him playing something for about 10 minutes and quitting. (It took him a year to realize he didn't have to alway...

Undercover Cops for Super Famicom 79,800 I was just playing that on my computer a few days ago. Pretty cool game. Crazy price for it though. Very cool game. It's definitely one that has sky rocketed. I think the last one I got was somewhere in the 12,000 to 16,000 range. I still have the old proxy ...

Re: Crazy Ass Auctions

Dunno... it's all hypothetical. It only takes two people to duke it out, and trust me, there was plenty of that shit before the proxies came. But yeah, they've definitely added more players to the field and thus, the prices higher. Also ,there's loads more J-sellers selling on Ebay.
