  1. Hmm. Should I even ask what you're storing in your drop box? Is that wise? Well, I've always been a risk taker. (Okay, not really. Like never.)
  2. *drops off a platter of cookies* ;D

  3. You need to come back. I need more chocolate chip cookies!

  4. I loved this game when I was a kid. I find it's best when played with someone else cooperatively. One of the few games I've got that two people can play at the same time and pretend they're on the same team.
  5. Hello back at you. :D

  6. When I was younger, I used to enjoy long cut scenes and intricate plots, but now I'm all for more action and less cut scene watching. I don't always have a lot of time to play, and sometimes I don't feel like playing for very long.
  7. No no, don't worry. I was only joking around. It is interesting actually. Besides, I came to grips with liking the same games my mom likes a couple of years ago.
  8. Looking back with fondness right away excludes rationality. I love Dr. Mario, but I do have fond memories of playing it as a kid. Never was into puzzlers. Crap. *hobbles away on walker with Dr. Mario decal* I have to also completely agree with Final Fantasy 7 being over-rated. But I think that's another one touched by fondness as for quite a few people that was the first Final Fantasy they ever played, so I can give them that if they don't push it. Still, if they tell me they've only played Final Fantasy 7 and up, I do suggest they at least give 6 a try.
  9. In no real order: Super Mario Bros 3, Dr. Mario, Bubble Bobble, TNMT, Goonies II Wow, that was actually kinda difficult with my memory. Mostly, these were just games I remember playing a LOT of, so I have fond memories. And well, I figure I must've liked them.
  10. Portal has definitely been on my intended play list. Also, it shouldn't make me too nervous, but with me, you never know, lol. Still I'm flying high from this defeat, so I may give it a try next. Also, this game is definitely worth it. It's not long, and it's pretty fun. Though it was frustrating in parts.
  11. It's rare but it happens. Sometimes I actually complete games. This actually happens much less than it should, so the list of games completed is probably something I can list off the top of my head. (Though with my memory, maybe not.) Granted, Mirror's Edge is a short game. Only nine chapters, so really all that's needed is some determination and intent. Plus I played on easy. So really it's not the completing of the game that's the amazing part, it's the fact that I actually played a game like this at all that is the miracle. I hate action games and FPS. Just can't do them without getting nervous, and I don't really know why. A lot of the time I'm sure that someone is going to sneak up behind me or pop out from around the corner. Part of the reason I started playing Mirror's Edge is because it seemed like other games out now with beautiful graphics and good action, but not FPS. But there are parts where it did become a FPS. Sure, the first time I over came my fear of the SWAT guys and took out a whole team, I was flying high that morning. "Look at me go!" I thought. But then as the levels progressed, I got over that. By the time I was on the last chapter and taking things out with the sniper rifle, I was a nervous wreck and I was done. Towards the end, I'd only play in quick bursts because I'd end up getting too nervous and need to hide under blankets. Or curse profusely. (Poor cats and their innocent ears.) But now that I've completed the game, some part of me thinks it's ready to go back. It seems to think that shooting things was kinda fun and that with a little practice, it could get better and be more awesome.
  12. It seems like it's just one of those things it's just too late for. Nintendo has been all about the "casual gamer" market while Sony has been going after the "hardcore gamer". It's all about perception really. So NDS gets some strange "games". (Walking Coach? Stop Smoking Coach? Nintendogs?) I also heartily agree that a lot of games end up getting some strange gimmick tacked on like using the touch screen for controls. I absolutely hate that trick. My boyfriend complained that his hands covered up half the screen when he played Phantom Hourglass, so he doesn't even really want to play Spirit Tracks. I really haven't been using my DS to play games for a while. Before I bought a flash cart for it, I didn't use it much at all. Now I use it to read comic books, as an emulator, watching movies, typing, all that. I use it all the time now. Also, one fun game for the DS is actually Assassin's Creed II: Discovery. More games like that are needed!
