What was it?
What did you think of it?
Would you tell others to [play] it?
Rate it. (Use own scale, but tell what your scale is).


I think we kinda need this topic.

Lol, this is like asking me what I had for lunch.

1. Most recent would be Dragon Quest VIII.
2. Possibly the best RPG we've seen this gen.
3. This one takes a bit of getting used to. It's an extremely retro turn-based RPG. However, spend about an hour or two with it, and you'll likely be sucked in by it's charm. Recommended to anyone who enjoys RPGs.
4. So far? Mid-nineties on a scale of 100.

I spent a good part of yesterday playing Shadow of the Colossus. For a game that is essentially a jumping puzzle it's surprisingly addictive. It's also beautiful to look at. I think it's by the same team that did Ico, which makes me wonder what they'll do next.

Lost Planet E3 demo

I'm really looking forward to the full release. but thats winter 07

If they throw in a few more things like alternative and equally cool character designs, some good multiplayer with some decent modes, this could be an awsome game.

Nice to see original ip comming out of capcom thats not a clone.
(even tho for some reason it does remind me of some of there other titles)

But I can't FINISH a minesweeper expert mode game. I know it's hopeless but I can't... I'll get to a near finished field and have two squares...and then BAM baby theres the bomb.

It makes me feel so pained

LOL Yeah, when was the last time that happened? I don't think I can remember that far back.

Oh, and Lesley, no offense, but I think your time could potentially be invested in games much better and more entertaining than Minesweeper...>_>

well to be candid, i dont often play minesweeper, it's usually an interim thing to keep myself occupied whilst i'm doing something else.

Usually it's when i'm waiting for something to load, someone to talk or something. I spend most of my day multitasking... it feels a little boring when I'm on the computer and there is only one thing to do.

Well I suppose that's alright then. Just so long as you're not going all out of your way to play it...<_<

You know what?

I bet if you took the basics of mine sweeper and made the grid a 3d area that you can manuver a character around in 3rd person and have him/her physicly flag and disarm the bombs with some slick animation tricks...

it wouldnt be too bad a game.

wanna make it really fun?
add 2 a player model

*writes that down*

You should also have like Rogue fake players who are suicide bomber people who want you to die. And you have like a countdown to deactive bombs that have been activated.

Or something
