Nah, I'm just not posting that much on message boards in general right now. It's not really about Nintendo news, even though I'm a Nintendo fan. Really, when it comes to games, I just talk about what I like to talk about, and what I'm interested in, whether it comes to games I've played long in the past or games I'm currently playing. Like, when I was playing through the Mega Man Zero games, I commented on them in the Mega Man thread. Also, notice how some of my longest posts are in that Resident Evil thread, just because that's a series I love. Otherwise, there's just not a lot I really want to talk about represented in the ZU gaming forum, right now.
I guess I can say "thanks for noticing my lack of posts", though!
Yeah, I've been all over the place, in terms of games, myself. I did the whole RE5 thing, and played the crap out of RE4 as well. On Wii I played Mega Man 9 consistently for a while, but that's kind of tapered down. Until I started Fallout 3, I was working on Paper Mario on the VC, but I can only handle one RPG at a time.
I also really got into Peggle on XBLA. Great game, though admittedly one of the only XBLA game I truly enjoy.
The games that are in my "now playing" list are just the ones that have taken priority, but overall I'm playing more games at the current time than I have in a while.
Yeah, I 'beat the game', meaning getting through the levels and doing the last boss, but I didn't finish all of the missions / get every treasure / do all of the extra levels. I got tired of those ones because they were so damn hard.
Right now, I'm not playing anything on the Wii. I'm playing Silent Hill 5, Eternal Sonata, extra optional bosses at the end of Lost Odyssey and a bit of some of my arcade games. I got Psyochonauts a good while back and I've only played it once or twice, despite thinking it was a very good game. I have a lot of games from XBLA, since I buy points regularly. So many games I've yet to beat haha. The latest ones I got were Flock and Crash Bandicoot: Wrath of Cortex. I still need to beat Castle Crashers and tons of others.
On top of this, I'll be starting Infinite Undiscovery tomorrow. I was playing RE5, but I've kinda given up on that and won't revisit it for a long time. So yeah, a big jumble of games (and I didn't even mention everything).
I really like how I can be playing a much deeper and more involved game like Fallout 3 on X360, and then go back for something a little more easy-going like Wario Land on Wii. The Wii is starting to pick up some nice platforming games, just like the DS. Once I'm done with Wario, I'll probably end up checking out Klonoa as well. I'm a big fan of platformers.
So yeah, Wario Land is good fun. Not a mindblowing experience, but a fun one. Oh, and the hand-drawn visuals are awesome.
As a side note, the game's use of waggle and tilt, gladly, isn't really a chore. While it's not necessary, it's integrated well enough that it becomes natural over time.
Well, at first I was kind of "meh" with it. Decent platformer, nothing more.
But really, this was just because I was running through the levels. Once I finished the first two worlds, I stopped, went back, and started to find all the treasures and complete all the missions. Needless to say, the game becomes a lot more fun when you're doing this, as the levels are better designed for exploration than for just straight-up platforming.
It's not like, say, New Super Mario Brothers. It's Wario Land, and for my first time playing a Wario Land game that wasn't the Virtual Boy version (yes, I played that one to completion), I'm having fun, but for different reasons than most platformers.
I do think that the game's original price tag of $50 may have been pushing it, but my brother got the game off of Goozex anyway, so there wasn't any issue.
I'm about the same, but I'm now more off than on. I completed A1, and the ending was messy and left you repeating missions for seemingly the sake of it. a2 has kind of lost it's plot a little, so I'm leaving it for the special times where I feel in the mood.
I started playing FFTA2 way back when it came out. Played it daily, and constantly.
Now I'm off and on with it. Upwards of 70 hours in with over 170 missions complete and I don't see an end anytime soon. I just get too caught up in the side missions, doing many of them before actually doing the story missions.
