    I'm debating whether I should buy Kirby's Epic Yarn for myself. I'm a rather lazy video game player :p

    I wanna say the Lost Vikings... but that was never an arcade game to my knowledge.

    But Gauntlet... ugh... eats money like AIR.

    Nothing worse than a game that takes energy out of you from hoards of unavoidable villains... except when they take it out of time too.

    I know this is an old quote by someone who isn't even here... but I actually tried BTTF2/3 again and I have to say, the little puzzle games to get items are actually fun. But if you want that, you should check out Bill and Ted's Excellent Game Boy Adventure instead. It has all the fun of puzzle games without the mindless wandering the streets that go in every direction forever in three different time zones.

    I remember The Lost Vikings- great PC game. I don't know if it ever made it to arcades.

    I do know I've played the Back to the Future NES video games- and yeah, they are pretty frustrating. I like playing them because I love Back to the Future- but of the various BTTF video games released, I think some of my favorites are the Japanese "Back to the Future Part II" game released for SuperFamicom (Super Nintendo in Japan) and the "Back to the Future Part III" game released for Sega Genesis.
    Even Bob Gale pretty openly said he was disgusted with the Nintendo games. http://bttf.wikia.com/wiki/Back_to_the_Future_(video_game)
    But there have been a few other BTTF games of interest- the Back to the Future pinball game is pretty cool from what I hear and just a few years back Christopher Lloyd reprised his role as Doc Brown to help create BTTF slot machines (which Bob Gale directed the storyline for too.)
    And sometime at the end of this year there is supposed to be some new Back to the Future video games released!
    This one Bob Gale is very much involved in and will hopefully be a really good product. I can't say I totally like the artwork, but it's not bad for what it is.:)

    Mario, Sonic, and Zelda are the first games I can remember playing. Donkey Kong came around about ten or eleven years ago. X3

    Classic Sonic : Sonic 1-3, Knuckles, Spinball. Haven't played CD, and 3D Blast is a dizzying eyesore!
    Mickey's Speedway USA for N64
    Michael Jackson Experience: I pwned my friend the other day. MJ rules!
    Pac- Man, Donkey Kong, etc. occassionally.

    Has anyone played Rayman Origins? If you are a fan of platformers you need to check it out. Side scrolling platformers are really a thing of the past, but the game proves that they can still be just as fun and hard. I am a fan of the first Rayman and I think Origins is 100x better. Style, gameplay...and its less monotonous. I really like all the redesigns except the magician. He went from a hot whatever rayman is to a teensie (another species in the rayman universe) due to some weird plot thing that rayman is the only one of his kind. Yes...I find him hot (before the change)...dont look at me like that

    I got to meet and hang with the creator and voices behind Zim recently.

    Also as far as video games, Im mostly into 2d or 2.5d...not too big on 3d games

    beaker Well-Known Member

    Oh there will always be side scrollers. A lot of new ones came out on the ds. I am a fan of most newer 2d games, as long as it has that SNES like magic to it.

    No a little convention in my town of Sacramento, but I had a more laid back random chat with Jhonen at Wondercon last year. Crazy that hes about my age and Ive been a huge fan since 1995
  15. CountFan1998

    CountFan1998 Well-Known Member

    Oh, I though it was at InvaderCon. My bad! Anyways, it's cool that you got to meet Johnen Vasquez, and Richard Steven Horvitz outside of InvaderCon!

    I've been playing Batman: Arkham City! I didn't play Arkham Asylum except for in a few in-store demos, but, I love Arkham City even though some friends of mine spoiled the ending and all.

    I meant major console releases (not counting the indie ones available on XBLA/PSN). Can you recommend any DS ones?
  18. beaker

    beaker Well-Known Member

    That's what I mean. Not dsiware, wiiware, or other virtual downloads. Physical cartridges. I'd say the majority of DS games seem to be 2d, well at least 2/3. I think developers realized people want crisp 2d rather than ugly muddy N64 graphics

    Forgot if this was the thread or not.

    If you're like me, you heard about the Ratchet and Clank movie (from this thread I believe) and were disappointed by the lack of updates in the production process. I didn't think this thing was even still in production...then came this:

    The announcement of several big name stars as voice actors. Rest assured, the game characters will be voiced by the same cartoon voice actors (including David Kaye...yeeeesssss).

    So this thing is actually happening now. Can't wait.
