Damnit. Think it's too late to commission a cake of Samus fighting Master Chief while Mario pummels Sonic in the background and Link dueling Cloud as candles?

You waited for National Video Game Day until you let yourself play Metroid Prime Corrupion?

Weirdo.

Phlease. Everyone knows Samus would kick the shiat out of Master Chief. He's a frat boy. She's got boobs. Great, luscious space-boobs.

And Link vs Cloud? Pansy little kid-friendly cell-shaded link? Versus psychopath Cloud?
 
2007-09-12 09:46:12 AM  
Really? I should've taken off work and stayed home to play Dynasty Warriors: Gundam and maybe go pick up Heavenly Sword...
 
2007-09-12 09:49:24 AM  
I shall slay a Big Daddy later this evening, in honor of this glorious day.

Cloud would probably have a nervous breakdown and start mumbling about the Lifestream and some shiat. Link would just pull out his Hero's Bow and end it, silently.

Either way, more Guild Wars for me tonight. Hooray for dungeon crawling!

Is Gundam any good? I wasn't too thrilled by the demo...and have you tried Lair yet? All I keep hearing is "controls suck" and "graphics are stunning"....
 
2007-09-12 09:53:24 AM  
I shall celebrate this by playing some GOTY:Oblivion on my Xbox 360 tonight...after I prep the college course I teach tomorrow, that is. ;-)

Currently unemployed inbetween jobs so I have been tanking it on Pinball FX, Bioshock, Jetpac Refuelled and Worms so far. There will be some Pro Ev 6 later on, plus quite probably some Earth Defence Force 2017 as well. Busy busy busy.

Fitting that Super Paper Mario should finally turn up today then. Damn Nintendo European release schedule.

Might I suggest the purchase of Catan? It's not an action game, but it's a GREAT adaptation of the board game!

I hear it's spectacularly lackluster throughout. You have to be a big fan of both Gundam and Dynasty Warriors to make the purchase worthwhile.

Well this sucks. I'm awating arrival of my 360 coffin. No gaming for me.

2007-09-12 10:39:24 AM  
Cool! I'll be sure to let my wife know that I won't be able to fix anything around the house because I'll be playing Oblivion all day and night.

/yeah, like that would work...
 
2007-09-12 10:42:54 AM  
I'd like to do something fun today, but I'll probably just end up taking pictures of San Fierro.

Who ever makes this shiat up, Remember folks May 25 is talk like a limber dick cocksucker day, AKA talk like DeadWood day.

Yeah, that's what I've heard, too. Any thoughts on Lair? And does anyone know how to put yourself out when you're on fire in RFOM? Can't seem to find the stop-drop-and-roll button on my damn controller...

Perfect, now I have justification for dropping over $300 on a new video card last night so I could install and play BioShock.

/Absolutely worth it
 
2007-09-12 12:04:06 PM  
I knew I shoulda stayed home and played Lego Star Wars...I'm 99.2% complete, one more super story and BAMO I get an achievement...

and WHY YES, I do reenact scenes from Episode 3 with the Emperor and Mace Windu, what of it??

Not the most powerful console anymore, but as far as gaming love goes, still the greatest. Even I love it, and I much prefer computers to consoles for games.

Damn, I knew I should have asked off today instead of the ol' anniversary later this month.

My Dreamcast can play Master System/Genesis/(S)NES/Gameboy anything... ntm it makes me sweet pot brownies.

Sweet - should have taken the day off from my real job as a religious holiday.

Supposed to be spending my free time working on a game review, but work keeps getting in the way of that too. :(

I still stand by Lair. You should at least rent it if it looks at all interesting to you. The controls aren't awful, and dare I say fairly intuitive. My older brother is pretty bad at picking up video games (I watched him slam into mountains every couple minutes in warhawk, about 30 suicides on my rankings that I didn't need). Afterwards he picked up Lair and was cruising through the sky doing obstacle courses in under two minutes. He even commented that he really liked the way it controlled and could get good at it given some practice.

Now, personally I think warhawk controls much better than Lair, but its a testament to it's playability that an absolute novice jumped in quickly and liked the controls.

And honestly, shouldn't a high tech warplane control much better than a 10 ton flying lizard?

I'm a former arcade game designer, so I'm getting a kick out of your replies.

Seriously.

Just gotta figure out WHAT to play tonight...
MAME, so many choices, so little time....

or just get back into programming a new pinball....

Tis all good...

I should be working, instead I am farking and playing Kingdom Hearts on my DS.

Shame on me.

Old school? There's only one Fox in old-school Star Fox. And what'd they do to Slippy (or whatever the dumbass frog's name was)?!

MAME is without a doubt the required playing for this special day. One of the awesomest pieces of software evar!

I was impressed by that LotR poster, and then I recognized the Minas Tirith (sp?) collector's thing from the RotK extended edition. Holy frak is that poster huge!

Yeah, I plan on picking it up in October, as the rest of this month I'm only home for 5 days. Thanks for the recommendations...

Oh, and do people actually use headsets in warhawk??
