  1. Banjo-Kazooie

    as great as the games were at the time, and dont get me wrong they still play phenomenally. trying to play them as they were originally with an N64 control scheme is a nightmare and a half. i personally prefer Yooka-Laylee anyway
  2. Post your videogame ratings

    might as well Rate the FF Series while i'm here Final Fantasy: 6/10 (a good start but flawed and shows its age even with updated graphic ports) Final Fantasy 2: 2/10 (Experimental, didnt work) Final Fantasy 3: 5/10 (A step up, still not phenomenal) Final Fantasy 4: 10/10 (and this is where we get amazing) Final Fantasy 5: 8.5/10 (Keeping up with the good games) Final Fantasy 6: 9.5/10 (personal bias, also starts off slow and fairly boring, picks up vastly in the WoR though) Final Fantasy 7: 7/10 (good first 3D attempt) Final Fantasy 8: 6/10 (Looks gorgeous, plays alright nothing spectacular) Final Fantasy 9: 8/10 (Best of the PS1 lot, back to the roots did wonders for the series) Final Fantasy 10: 7/10 (it gets nitpicked for tidus and some admittedly terrible cutscenes (read: some) but the rest of the game from visuals to soundtrack is epic) Final Fantasy 11: 6/10 (Not a bad first shot at an MMO, and on PS2 no less) Final Fantasy 12: 6/10 (Flawed Mechanics in some areas but otherwise good) Final Fantasy 13: 5/10 (a little bland in design choice but the graphics are gorgeous and it plays fine) Final Fantasy 14: 8/10 (only played a little bit of it on a friend's account due to being an avid player of Elder Scrolls Online and 1 MMO Being enough for now but it was phenomenal) Final Fantasy 15: 7/10 (Looks gorgeous, again some flawed gameplay choices but solid nonetheless) Note: Havent played X-2, Revenant Wings or the FF13 Sequels and was focusing purely on the numbered entries so no FFIV TaY (though it would get a 5/10 for nostalgia)
  3. Which videogame do I play next?

    at first i thought "Lol obsessive much" then i counted my own 82 guess i have no room to talk
  4. Video Game club

    as said it depends on the game, if it can be emulated or its free/cheap on PC then hell yeah
  5. Which videogame do I play next?

    they fixed nothing, Sneak in general was broke af, getting up to x8 with a bow or x32 with a dagger (and thats just with the right sneak perks and DB armor) is easy and enough to one shot pretty much everything except dragons and dragon priests.
  6. Which videogame do I play next?

    Skyrim (heck all the elder scrolls games) are much more focused on Lore, World Building and Exploration than combat, combat is basically an afterthought in skyrim sadly. Tip: if you want to break the game in half completely, train sneak and get armor enchanted to raise sneak attack damage (dark brotherhood is good)
  7. Red-Eyes Zombie vs Frightfur Sheep

    I'm not 100% sure but I believe turn player has priority so sheep activates last in the chain and resolves first going back to your field.
  8. Which videogame do I play next?

    you did spoil a little of XBC but honestly its nothing massive and dosent show up until you're like 80% done with the main story anyway. i'd still give it a go
  9. What games are you currently playing?

    Playing Oblivion for the first time ever, Struggling with the Octo Expansion DLC for splatoon, still trudging through Xenoblade Chronicles 2, playing pokemon go and duel links anytime i get a spare minute.
  10. Finding a card

    It's clearly a spell but otherwise there's no way of knowing what it is
  11. Nintendo Switch (new console)

    there's still time before smash's release for new characters, or DLC. i didnt get mario tennis aces due to funding but it looked good and i played a few matches on the demo to moderate success. +1 on the Pro Controller, got one as soon as i got my switch and never looked back, i can barely use the joycons now, they just dont feel as right in my bulkier hands.
  12. Turn A Video Game Into A Film

    one of the elder scrolls games, likely skyrim would make a great epic, the problem would be fitting it into one movie, i would see it as a multi parter like the lord of the rings. Part 1 could be the whole stuff at whiterun and the dragon attacking, then setting off to find the greybeards and blades Part 2 would be more story driven with the greybeards and the blades with some dungeon crawling. maybe finding sky haven temple Part 3 would be the buildup and ultimately climactic final battle with Alduin
  13. Duel Links News - Whats Next

    i still see a place for Silent Swordsman. not the OTK variant thankfully but the normal deck can still rip some decks apart with something as simple as a LV3 backed by sword slash. heaven forbid you stack sword slash onto lv5 or even lv7 decks relying on one or 2 specific cards in their opening hands (hi grass decks) also got a bit of a hit from balance, restart and duel standby being nerfed. so i dont see spellbooks being as bad as they were with 30 card grass variants. still a threat ofc but at the most blowing through secrets, master and power would get one good fate banish off and leave them without much to do.
  14. I need some help understanding the meta

    the meta was gouki + rogue until dark saviors. now and for the forseeable future sky striker (pure and variants) look to be solidly at the top with gouki taking 2nd, trickstar also seem to have had a minor resurgence. altergeist are popping up now and then too. honestly i'd wait a month or so for a big official event like a regional or a YCS to judge the current meta.
  15. 1st Place Las Vegas Regional Report

    Any chance of going through some basic combos for someone intrested in the deck?
  16. 1st Place Las Vegas Regional Report

    man good job, i saw your build somewhere a day or 2 ago and it confused me slightly. do you mind explaining it? things mostly like butterspy, junk forward and the lack of any Gouki links
  17. So i tried a couple of decks based on what i had, Dark World worked for a time, but was too inconsistent Enter fabled, in pulling for DWD from the latest pack, i grabbed up enough Fabled stuff to build this beauty. Skill: The tie that Binds Monsters: 3x Fabled Dainaira 3x Fabled Gallabas 3x Fabled Ganaisha 2x Fabled Lurrie Spells: 2x Dark World Dealings 3x Enemy Controller Traps: 2x Floodgate Trap Hole 1x Wall of Disruption Gallabas takes out monsters and pops off Ganaisha and Lurrie, DWD does this too. Ganaisha is a good beater, lurrie is purely Dainaira fodder. Dainaira is a 2800 Beater that can be buffed further with Tie that Binds. the Traps and Econs deal with threats well. my main problem is decks like red-eyes that can get out big monsters quickly. i will be dropping a couple of Gallabas for Snipe hunters once (if) i pull them, Gallabas is working alright for now though. Also considering replacing Floodgates until i get snipe hunters, gallabas hits face-up monsters, and with a lack of AG or CA these days at the top, i find more use for things like Mirror Wall or even Super Rush Headlong.
  18. Our Videogame Reviews

    Splatoon 2 Arguably one of the most quirky and unique games of the last couple of years, gets a sequel on a console not doomed from the start. honestly if there was a game besides Zelda to pick up a switch for right now, this is it. The core gameplay is simple, you run around the battlefield inking walls floors and everything else allowing you to swim through it in Squid form recovering ink and moving faster, inking also fills your special meter to use your special attack, you also have a sub weapon to use usually some sort of bomb. Killing an enemy makes them explode and ink around the area in your colour fairly quickly. Different modes have different objectives. Unranked is exclusively turf wars where you fight to cover the most turf with your team, while others can have different things to do such as tower control, splat zones (control point essentially) and clam blitz where you attack the enemy goal as a team to take out their shield and fill their basket with Clams. the fun of the game comes from the variety of weapons, from the standard splattershot to the faster firing shorter range dualies, the heavy firepower of the Splattling, the Umbrella's defensive capabilities, the blaster's short range but high damage, the slosher covering ground quickly, the rollers giving you good ground coverage and fast kills on unsuspecting enemies, the brushes for a faster but weaker variation. and even the Charger which is basically a sniper rifle. you can experiment and find which one suits you best, as well as their primary function, they each have a different combination of sub weapon and special for you to consider, making it tactical as well as fun. Maps rotate every couple of hours, and every couple of days Salmon run opens up, its your classic PvE "Zombie" mode where you fight seemingly endless hordes of AI enemies and collect Golden Eggs. its fun and challenging, with each run giving you 1 of 2 maps, and 4 different weapons which get rotated between the 4 players through the waves. If you have a few Hours to kill Single Player is incredibly fun, good for getting you used to the game's more complex mechanics, and trying out new weapons before jumping into PvP with them. it does follow on slightly from Splatoon 1 but i never played it and didnt feel like i was missing anything from the story. The one thing i will say is, Multiplayer is the selling point of the game, so if you dont like playing most of the time with or against other actual players, or cant due to lack of Stable internet, the game might not be for you as the single Player is lacking. Pros: Fun unique gameplay Variety of modes and weapons Highly Addictive Cons: Highly Addictive Mostly multiplayer based 9/10
  19. Top 10 games of the last TEN years

    10. Fire Emblem: Awakening 9. Batman Arkham City 8. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim 7. Splatoon 2 6. Pokemon Platinum 5. Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy 4. League of Legends 3. The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild All credit to Skyrim which introduced me to open world games, but this was the one i feel perfected it. the SECOND i exited that cave my breath was taken away by the gigantic landscape, the vast world to explore and the sheer amount of things to do. i still play it i'm still nowhere near even close to being done with it. its just fantastic 2. Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest This is a personal one, i completed this game on Lunatic difficulty, which if you couldnt tell by the name almost drove me insane. but when i finally completed it, i felt more satisfied than i had felt with any game before or since. the story is as thin as a dollar store napkin but the gameplay is phenomenal and the difficulty is intense but fair to experienced players. 1. Xenoblade Chronicles XBC 2 is great so far, but the original just blew me away. it took awhile to get going but once you step out of that cave into the massive Gaur Plain and the world opens up to you. you set off on an epic journey like no other. the combat system is fair and fun, the party members are all amazing. the game has one of the best storys in gaming history and to top it off it's challenging for newcomers and veterans alike depending on how you want to play it plus it has so much to do and so much replayability. my first 100% playthrough took over 100 hours. no other game has ever taken me that long (though Breath of the Wild might beat that record for me). i just cant describe it any other way but Spectacular.
  20. Nintendo Switch (new console)

    After playing XB2 for awhile, i have to agree its fun, slightly complicated but not hard for an experienced gamer to understand (wish there was a way to re-read tutorials though, seriously would it have killed them to put it in as a menu option. one flash on screen saying "press X button to do Y in battle that you'll need to memorize and perform consistently" is not enough) anybody got Star Allies? heard it was decent
  21. Yami Bakura

    ok, i came up with this deck after scrounging what i had and seeing some other vids and lists online, its still not a guaranteed win, you need 2 cards in your opening hand. Restart can help with that. (also gdi Bakura drop trance already) 3x Guardian Statue 3x Medusa Worm 2x Crystal Seer (this is mostly to nullify his potential searches off sangan and doomdog so he dosent deck out first) 2x Golden Ladybug (neutralizes Burning Land) 1x Winged Dragon of Ra 3x Array of Revealing Light (key) 1x Anti Magic Arrows (in case he still has Poison of the Old Man set on your last turn, this lets ra go through safely without him burning your 100lp) 2x Exile of the Wicked (you could add a 3rd, or replace it with more backrow hate to stop ectoplasmer if you want) 1x Wild Tornado (i prefer this over Twister due to no LP cost, usually takes out Burning Land to stop him killing himself) 2x Aegis of Gaia (for the final turn) you need Worm/Statue + Array in your opening hand, play Array and declare Fiend, this stuns all his monsters for a turn letting statue or worm get rid of them, doll + ecto can be annoying but sometimes he likes to summon a weaker monster and tribute it, giving you a turn to destroy Doll with Worm or Exile of the Wicked. on your last turn make sure to have at least 4000 LP, if you dont hit 9999 damage then 8k isnt a guarantee, but over 5k can still just about pull it off. flip your 2 traps to boost yourself by 6k, use worm/statues to clear his field, tribute for Ra, boost Ra, AMA and attack for game. gets you Summon DIVINE monster on top of the usual LP on the brink, cards on the brink etc etc.
