Hey all,

Been registered for a month or so, but haven't posted until tonight.  Got introduced to Radio Free Nintendo by an old co-worker, was my first podcast and so far still my favorite (for video game discussion at least) .  Everything else I've heard so far sounds like people being paid by their respective company, or apologists for bad gameplay.

Anyway, I look forward to being a more active member within the next coming months.  Seems like a cool community here.

Hello lolmonade.
Welcome to the site.

What types of games do you like and what games have you picked up this year?

Hey, thanks.

Genre-wise, My preferences are usually fighting games, action/adventure, platforming, or anything that provides a fun, new experience (Heavy Rain being the last game that made me feel was unique).

I've purchased several games this year, but due to finishing up my graduate degree, haven't been able to play through several of them, so I'll just mention a few I've had a chance to play:

Kirby's Epic Yarn - This game is just bursting with charm.  Between the fun storybook narrative, simple to play and challenging to perfect level difficulty, and completely unique art style, this is one of my contenders for game of the year.  Also commendable for how they took out the main function of every other Kirby game (eating enemies to gain their powers) and made it still feel like a Kirby game.

Heavy Rain - Glorified Quick-Time Event simulator comments aside, it accomplished reeling me in to play through it a few times to see what the outcomes were.  Wasn't quite worth retail price, and isn't a leap forward for storytelling in general, but was a step in the right direction for video game narrative and multiple ending stories

Super Street Fighter IV - This is what should have been released in the first place.  I fear the cycle is going to repeat itself with Capcom releasing yearly updated games with small tweaks & features, further dividing the online community.

Super Mario All Stars Wii - Never owned a copy, and preferred getting these games on a disc than VC.  Good times with my wife, but wish it would have been $5 cheaper for what was in there.

Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks - Played about 5 hours worth.  I enjoy the deviation from the console versions in terms of story and premise, but feel like something was lost in translation gameplay wise.  It seems too easy, for the lack of a better word (maybe I'm just too early in the game).  I'm also not the biggest fan of touch screen combat.  I wish it was more like Chrono Trigger DS with touch screen menu & maps at the bottom, and ability to use buttons, or at least an option to do so. 

Demon's Souls - I haven't been more aggravated by a game since Super Ghouls N Ghosts, but I'm a glutton for punishment so I can't help but love both games, and it's very rewarding to finally finish a boss after such a lengthy trial & error process.  I haven't yet figured out the RPG elements and what each stat does though.

Games I'm looking forward to playing: Dragon Quest IX, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story


Any suggestions of other games to be on the lookout for?

Hmm for fighting games I would try out Tatsunoko vs Capcom. If you have played the versus series of games it is like that.It is a 2-D fighter and it has online play too.

For action games I would try out No More Heroes 2:Desperate Struggle. It is basically an action game where you fight up the ranks of 50 and you try to get to be the best killer. It also has lots of 8-bit charm and it is funny too at times.

Red Steel 2 I heard was pretty good and it uses Wii Motion Plus. I heard it controls really well.

You mentioned Demon Souls and I keep getting it seen brought up with another game,Monster Hunter Tri since some people think they are similar. I picked up the game at the begining of June and really haven't played anything else since. They recently had the last new event quest for online but all the previous event quests will cycle around again. I have spent roughly 830 hours with the game since I got it. I think I have almost done everything I want to do with the title except for a few things like upgrading a few weapons fully and finishing a few sets. We have a topic in the Matchmaking section of the forum that we use to meet up with each other and talk about the game.

Out of these I mentioned I have really only played MH3.

It looks like I'll have to get Monster Hunter Tri a try. 
 
On an unrelated note.  What's with this score thing?  I see my score is a "-1".  What does this mean?

If somebody likes your post, they can applaud you (+1). If they don't, they can smite you (-1). It's just for fun, the score doesn't affect anything.

Hello, all! I've been lurking here for a while without registering for a while, listening to podcasts and reading reviews and such, and just decided to join. I've never really been one for introductions, so I'll keep this simple, I suppose.

I'm a high-school student who lives in Atlanta... I like history, swimming competitively, and football. I'm really into Nintendo and SEGA video games, and I own a few consoles but my favorites are probably my Game Boy Advance and Dreamcast. I've recently played WarioWare Twisted on the GBA and picked up Shenmue for the Dreamcast... as for recent games, I just bought Mario Sports Mix and Bit Trip Flux. I also write some video game reviews for my friend's website, if you for some reason care.

See ya around!
