That sounds like it got to your heart when I called you "kidcore" yesterday.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Yeah, this is an awesome game. Just beat it myself last month.

Anyone know how to do that one thing Samus does in the gameplay clips that play if you wait long enough at the title screen? You know, where that color changing aura appears around her and she starts floating? It looks AWESOME.

Yeah what the hell was that?  It embarrassed me in front of my wife.  She saw that, and asked if I could do that, and I said "no" and she said "Oh, you haven't even BEGUN to play this game then."  Hahaha.  It was something with charging up your sprint but then dropping a power bomb I think.  I'll try that and report back here.

 

 Ha, I've been unable to figure it out either (after 4 playthroughs).  I also noticed that her missle count and energy were going up as she did it (I think).

To lavish praise upon this title, the assumption of a common plateau between player and game must be made.  I won't open my unworthy mouth.

This thread is tempting me to bust out that game. It has been years since I beat it, and my SNES is sitting right next to my Wii...

Those are awesome magazine covers, by the way.

@Rubang & appolose: I'm guessing the move you are referring to is this one:

Crystal flash

For this to work Samus' energy must not be higher than 49 (and her
reserve tanks must be empty) and she must have 10 missiles, 10 super
missiles and 11 power bombs. First select the [power bombs] then morph
and hold these buttons: {down}, {aim-diagonally-down} and
{aim-diagonally-up}. Press and hold {fire}. When the power bomb
detonates Samus' energy will start to refill.

Don't give me credit for this though. I found it on GameFaqs.

But wait...aren't kids supposed to be better than older people because they have more time to play and master games, meaing we're supposed to be better than you?

You would have a point if I had a social life.

It's a double-edged sword.  Kids have more time on their hands, so they can grind all day in RPGs and often have faster reflexes for online shooters, but at the same time, they started playing video games more recently, after they were dumbed down.  Meanwhile, us older folk sharpened our teeth on impossible games like Battletoads, and we really know what pain is.  We played games with no save points, no passwords, no tutorials, no clues, and sometimes no continues, so when it comes to games that don't hold your hand the whole way through (with crap like Navi), we have the advantage.

Have you ever used a Power Glove?
