Games Retrospective
 
A nice journey through the history of FF games ;)

Part I - FF 1 - http://www.gametrailers.com/player/22250.html

Part II - FF 2 & 3 - http://www.gametrailers.com/player/22650.html

Part III - FF 4 & 5 - next sunday :)

I always thought Moggles came first (then Chocobos). :P

Metroid now:

Part I - the 1st (NES) and the gameboy (without color) one - http://www.gametrailers.com/player/22771.html

Oh cool it's a series. Surprisingly informative videos.

Starflux 07-26-2007 08:25 AM

Yes, one of the better things to come out of Gametrailers. Infinitely preferable to their incredibly stale Top 10's, in any regard. I really liked the Zelda retrospectives as well!

Ninja Dodo 07-26-2007 11:48 AM

Screwattack is occasionally funny as well. I don't much care for Gamehead and GameOne is a load of autocue-reading toss, but you can only seem to filter by platform, not by show...

Starflux 07-26-2007 11:33 PM

Basically the only reason I visit Gametrailers is for the, well, trailers, and the Screwattack features. It stinks that I have to waddle through the piles of shit featuring Amanda McKay, who suffers from foot-in-mouth disease and is quite not believable as a gamer. Does anyone here feel represented by her?

TiAgUh 07-27-2007 01:34 AM

shes hot, thats enough for me :P

Starflux 07-27-2007 04:01 AM

No.

Ninja Dodo 07-27-2007 04:10 AM

I don't know, if 'being hot' is the only redeeming quality here, that purpose seems better served by watching porn. The amount of intelligent discourse is about the same.

Final Fantasy Retro

Part III - 4 & 5 - http://www.gametrailers.com/player/22905.html

Metroid Part II:

Metroid (Snes) & GameBoy Color*: http://www.gametrailers.com/player/23047.html

*Edit: Not Color, Advance. (Thanks Starflux)

Starflux 08-02-2007 07:27 AM

So awesome. Metroid Fusion is for the Gameboy Advance though, not Color.

TiAgUh 08-02-2007 07:44 AM

yeah sorry you're right ;). I played Fusion and it was kinda boring. It is the only Metroid I played so far :crazy:

Starflux 08-02-2007 11:22 PM

Ooh and you took one of the 'lesser' games in the pantheon. Less between quotations marks because it's still probably stellar. But try out Zero Mission for the same system, the Primes or Super Metroid. They're games capable of blowing you to smithereens.

Final Fantasy Retro

Part IV - Final Fantasy 6 - http://www.gametrailers.com/player/23185.html

Now this game was awesome! I played it when i was very young and at the time, it seemed endless :D

Kefka was cool :P. The opera scene and the one with Shadow fighting the ghosts (haunted train) were memorable. Its the only FF, besides VII, that i really liked.
Your opinion? ;)

Reminds me of Zelda 3 for some reason...

Metroid Retro

Part II - Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes [N64] - http://www.gametrailers.com/player/23387.html?type=wmv

Looks cool, someday i will try Prime :)

Final Fantasy Retro

Part V - Final Fantasy VII - http://www.gametrailers.com/player/23449.html

A great game indeed :). Awesome story, characters and music ( they forgot to talk about the music :crazy: ). To many spinoffs imo...
I really prefer when the main character doesnt say a word, like Chrono Trigger or Breath of Fire, and VII was the last Final Fantasy that had that (cant remember if Zidane, from FF9, talks or not). The best character imo is Rufus, the president of Shinra (Turks' boss), the one who killed Weapon :P .

Your opinion? What do you think? :)

Starflux 08-13-2007 06:30 AM

Awesome story, nice characters and brilliant music indeed... too bad they forgot to put a good game in it too ;)

It certainly has its merits, but at the same time a lot of it never plays particularly well (especially the mini-games and all the stuff around the fighting is poorly done), and if ever there was an overhyped game it's this. Perhaps it deserved it stature back when it came out, but it's a game that has aged spectacularly poorly, both graphically and gameplay-wise.

Really? The motorbike mini-game is still enjoyable imo ( but i'll give ya that :) ) ... the stuff around the fighting? what do u mean? the materia, the summons.. what?

Well, I played this game when i 1st got a PS2 .. and .. well .. you know my opinion ;) , this is the only game (besides Secret of Monkey Island) that i feel tempted to play again (and i hate the ideia of replaying a game btw).

More than Halo? :P
