  1. Banjo-Kazooie

    Started playing this on Monday when I copped the Rare Replay collection for £7.99 brand new. Why did nobody tell me about this gem? They even have a sequel (also on the collection) as well as Conker's Bad Fur Day, a game with a cult following. Gameplay has aged well, the only old thing is that it's a collectathon I guess but still basically the same formula as Super Mario Odyssey. I recommend this game and I hope these two get into Super Smash Bros Ultimate this year.
  2. Banjo-Kazooie

    I'm at Grunty Industries right now and I don't know if I have the willpower to carry on and beat Banjo-Tooie. It's just such a step down, I hate finding a Jiggy only to find out that I have to go somewhere else that I don't know where, do 1-2 things and then try my best to remember where the Jiggy was. This game is just so much more tedious, in Banjo-Kazooie everything is simple and I can 100% each world before moving on to the next. Maybe that makes the game simpler but simplicity is great in a platformer. While I think of it, Tooie is just about finding the warp pads in each world so you can run gack and forth, it's not a platformer like the original is imo. I'm sure others like the exploration but it's just not my kind of game.

    Okay well I hope you enjoy your time on this forum and I also hope we get to see the "real" you once the mask slips off. This community has mellowed a lot in its age and there are several members who no longer play Yu-Gi-Oh and are still active so I hope you can sucessfully intergrate into the group. This community could do with more members. Unfortunately, there isn't going to be much new material for you to laugh at though. As you can see, the forum gets very little activity (and unfortunately the Discord has been dying down for some time too) so outside of reading some of the Legendary threads you will have less material than you might have on massive sites like Reddit or 4chan.
  6. Will anybody be buying this game when it release on Friday December 7th? The day after my birthday, so close but at least I will have the day off to play through the game. I missed out on Smash for Wii U so it will be new to me since I last played 10 years ago in Brawl. There are so many characters to choose from I just hope Banjo & Kazooie can be DLC characters and maybe Crash Bandicoot too. Here is the full character list for people who don't know who's in.
  7. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Daisy has been crushing it at pre-release tournaments but they have the Smash meter on and hers is OP. I'm looking at possibly giving King K. Rool and Pokemon Trainer a spin.

    Just completed the game (including the secret boss); really enjoyed myself. A great RPG, particularly for people starting out as new to this particular genre. I didn't like the timed hits at first (and I still feel there should have been a way to find out how to time each attack) but it adds something different to the turn based battle system (which can at times get boring for me personally) so I grew to like this subtle addition in the end. The story isn't the most engrossing but what did you expect from a Mario game? I really enjoyed Mario's interaction with Mallow, and I felt that Geno was a badass character as well. Bowser got some character development as well, and you get to see what he's really like behind the persona he gives off to everybody else. In terms of difficulty, I felt the game was fairly easy for the most part up to the final third; at that point it starts to ramp up the difficulty so you need to come prepared and at the proper level. I felt that some equipment devalued the gameplay by making it slightly too easy (Lazy Shell weapon and armor is very powerful but you don't get that until towards the end). I felt the Axem Rangers boss was a not-so-subtle difficulty spike, however. The battle system is fairly easy to get to grips with and it is kept fairly simple which is has its pros and cons; on the one hand you lose a little bit of freedom that you might have in other turn-based battle system games (such as the option of various magic and summoning spells from the Final Fantasy series) but by reducing those options it keeps it simple enough for newcomers to the genre. That's likely what they were going for; I've read that this game was developed by Squaresoft (now Square Enix) to bring Westerners over to the RPG genre and using the Mario brand made it more marketable than a new IP would have been to that audience. Overall, a great game that I've enjoyed playing. I liked the characters, I grew to like the battle system and the story (although neither special nor unique) was serviceable, as expected. I wonder if anybody other than myself and @Bazoo have played through much of this? @rei @BuildTheWalia @KimJongUnderballs @Aaron @Tygo @Faint @Grimey @Sophocles @Paraliel @Stomach The MachoPony
  10. Sylvan Hermitree do you know who I am? I could probably ask players 100x better than DGz to give me advice but it's like 3am, I just got done with Hearthstone for the day, looked at seeral sponsorship deals from organizations that have approached me offering me a salary to play Hearthstone, found out Zunechan is now on Twitch (so I just rubbed one out) and I wanted to learn how to play a Yu-Gi-Oh deck at nationals FOR FUN, (you know, because I already beat this game) and see if I could top nationals with less than 2 weeks of practice (could do it in a day of practice if I already knew what the cards/combos did). Maybe I'd actually have insight, you know, because even though I don't play anymore, I'm still better than 99.99% of you on this site, even better than 99.99% of other 'good players'. I guarantee I'd figure it all out on my own but if I had a cheat sheet, I'd actually be able to provide insight faster. GJ DGz 2014 for continuing to prove you're a bunch of tools. I'm glad you take a card game where you don't even get paid to play so seriously. Neg me all you want but I still got a YCS trophy that I don't even know where it is.

    @Bazoo We might be the only two people who actually bothered to do this in the end lol
  13. Burning Abyss - Deck Discussion

    I don't think there are many people that play Advanced Format on the site these days. It's crazy how these suckers have done the business for four years though, what an amazing investment they were in 2014 if you were going to play for the next few years.
  14. Video Game club

    I have just got the third star, really enjoying it so far. I'll admit that I'm not crazy about the timed hit mechanic, although I'm sure I'd like it more if it were possible to get an explanation for when to time for each individual attack rather than just the tutorial for Mario's first two moves. How is everybody else liking it?
  15. Video Game club

    I'm emulating using the site I linked on the previous page but I don't think they let you do that.
  16. Video Game club

    I just started today, I like it so far and I just got the first party member but I can't help but feel that having to press diagonal on the keys constantly gets really annoying really quickly. It's just not pleasant, I wish there were a way for me to use a joy stick to move instead of directional arrow keys. Or they design the layout/camera angle so that it isn't diagonal forcing you to press keys diagonally. Also I will probably tag everybody at the 2 week mark (so the 25th) to ask if people want to continue or if they don't like the game and want to try something new.

    If you have Adobe Flash Player you can just play it on the link, you don't need to download anything else because it's browser based and you can adjust the key mapping. http://emulator.online/snes/super-mario-rpg-legend-of-the-seven-stars/

    So are people actually down to play SMRPG then since it won with 5 votes? @rei @BuildTheWalia @KimJongUnderballs @Aaron @Tygo @Faint @Grimey @Bazoo @Sophocles @Paraliel
  19. Video Game club

    I just realised I shouldn't have let people pick multiples because we could have a draw of 3 or 4 games at the same number of votes. Oh well who cares. Would anybody have a problem if we wait until 11:59pm Tuesday and then voting is over and the winner is decided? That gives a little over 48 hours of voting time left so we can actually get on with this if people are serious about trying this out.
  20. Video Game club

    https://www.strawpoll.me/16591611 If anybody has other suggestions I will add them, you can vote for multiple. There's maybe a few too many RPG's.

    Bear in mind the links are all to a browser-based emulator site that uses Flash player. You can create save states on here easily too. Chrono Trigger: http://emulator.online/snes/chrono-trigger/ Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars: http://emulator.online/snes/super-mario-rpg-legend-of-the-seven-stars/Final Fantasy VI: http://emulator.online/snes/final-fantasy-6/Banjo-Kazooie: https://emulatoronline.com/n64-games/banjo-kazooie/The Legend of Zelda: https://emulatoronline.com/nes-games/the-legend-of-zelda/Super Mario Bros 3: https://emulatoronline.com/nes-games/super-mario-bros-3/ Golden Sun: https://emulatoronline.com/gba-games/golden-sun/ Resident Evil 2: https://emulatoronline.com/n64-games/resident-evil-2/ I find 2D games a little easier to play on a keyboard since I only have directional arrow buttons but maybe I should try to find another 3D game to add there for variety. I tried for older games but some of these are probably bad suggestions. I am trying to get into turn-based RPG's a little more since they are easier to play on an emulator for me personally. My slection maybe doesn't have enough action games here though, just a lot of RPG and a couple platformers. And like Aaron said we can always switch games after a week or two if we aren't liking them. Golden Sun is supposed to be quite good but the series hasn't really taken off. These are mainly Nintendo games because the first site I tried seems to only have Nintendo and Sega games (and not Playstation stuff) but I'm sure there are other classic options like Silent Hill 2, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, Metal Gear Solid, Spyro: Year of the Dragon, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Tomb Raider, Burnout 3: Takedown, Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening etc. on other sites. There are also games that we wouldn't need to take a month for, things like Metal Slug for example (anybody remember playing this on the arcade machines?).
  22. Video Game club

    Is anybody actually serious about this? If so, the games should obviously be easily accessible. I'd like to nominate Chrono Trigger as it is a famous JRPG from the SNES that is available using browser emulators. I have never played it before and would like to try it out. Also I think more people would participate if we used Discord. @rei @BuildTheWalia @KimJongUnderballs @Aaron @Tygo @Faint @Grimey @Bazoo @Sophocles @Paraliel @Stomach The MachoPony
  23. Banjo-Kazooie

    I beat Witchyworld from Banjo-Tooie earlier today. I'm going through Tooie a lot more slowly, idk why but I just don't like it as much as Banjo-Kazooie.
  24. Nobody uses Lackey anymore @Guari you are better off just using DuelingBook
  25. Banjo-Kazooie

    I am playing Banjo-Tooie now I prefer it to Conker
