Is anyone else finding the game to be pretty easy?  Hopefully they throw in some twists otherwise this is going to be a short game;  I'm at 3-3 (Fort Francis) with about 5 hours of gametime which I'm pretty sure includes cutscenes and at least a half hour where I left the game running while doing other things. 

Spoiler for Hiden:
anyone else finish the Mimi's slave camp portion by putting a rubber band over the control pad for 5 minutes go get the Rubees for the vault code?

Spoiler for Hiden:
No, but I did hold it in place with my thumb while I read a magazine*.  Wish I'd thought of the rubber band.

Spoiler for Hiden:
*That should never happen in a game, ever.

I'm also waiting on reviews for Bust a Move.  I get suckered in by this game a lot and then never play it.

Has anyone seen reviews on this?  I miss Game Rankings...

I still don't understand why they haven't done a big console version of these that's just like the hanheld versions.  They always change them in some way, and they're just not as good.

According to Joystiq, Carcasonne is coming on June 7.  http://www.joystiq.com/2007/04/16/carcassonne-making-roads-into-xbox-live-arcade-on-june-7th/


Can we assume that Catan is coming before that?  Two awesome games in just over a month (this week is Mini-Golf and Gyruss)!  I hope so.

On the other hand, Carcasonne seems more accessible than Catan, so maybe they're thinking of leading with that now...

I have to dissent here on the card battles.  Honestly, for me, they're kind of a "Oh, crap, I have to do this again" thing.  I think it's putting the pack together.  It's more of a pain for me than fun.  Yet I like unlocking all the cards.  Go figure.

Haven't been following this new Pokemon too closely, but I think the big bullet points are:

I haven't played one of these since the GB Color version, but I might just pick this up to see how it looks on the DS.

I tried it last week.  It was fun, but not amazingly so.  Honestly, it was hard to tell what was going on or what I was supposed to be doing, apart from hitting zombies. 

I really wanted to try multiplayer, 'cause I have a feeling it'll be more enjoyable that way (not sure what the co-op options are in the game), but there was never anyone online.  Ever.

The unicorn music repeating game - WTF??! 

The timing just doesn't seem to match the music at all.  After a bunch of attempts, I've only pulled off 4 points in the first level!  Is anyone else having trouble with this one?

You don't tap the instruments to the timing.  You need to tap before it gets to that instrument.  So, as soon as they show you the first instrument in the pattern, go ahead and put the chocobo there in preparation.  Then, as soon as the last note for that instrument has played, move him to the next instrument.

Thanks, guys.  That'll help.

Temporarily revives to add: Guys, 4th edition isn't out yet, it is due in the fall. From what I have heard, it is supposed to harken back to the 2nd edition of the game moreso than the third edition.

I would just like to compliment you on conveying your reaction so well.

Where did you hear this!?  I'd love that as long as it's 2nd edition rules.  I paid way too much for the 2nd edition and all but the dragon expansion a few years back off ebay.

I seem to remember that it was 4th edition.  Sorry.

EDIT TO ADD: I checked the link (http://www.talkxbox.com/article2089.html), and it is, indeed, the 4th edition.

I played this for a couple minutes and then deleted it.  I don't think giving people only the Hard difficulty to try out was really a smart choice, as it certainly turned me off the game. 

I hit the face buttons with my thumb, and making me hit two of them at the exact same time after only 10 seconds of playing made me say that "this just isn't for me".  But I guess I'm not really into that sort of game anyway, which is one of the reasons I haven't bothered to try Guitar Hero. 

My demo had easy, medium and hard available.  Easy and medium for one song, and hard for another.  You only tried the one song with hard?

No, I tried the Easy, too.  I'd forgotten about the Medium on the other song, but I tried that, as well.

I had the same exact reaction.  Why the hell did the only give you an easy and a hard?  And hitting two at once several times in a row was a deal-breaker.

I love GH2.  Just saying.

LOL, I got Bubble Bounce last night, too.  I got 42 exactly, and yelled out "In Your Face!!!".  For some reason, I had the hardest time getting more than 38 bubbles.

Ooohhh... one which really makes me want to throw the DS is the one where you stab the jar.  It's entirely, literally, luck based.  And to make it worse, gold star is 20 points, and on my first play I got to 18.  And haven't even come close since then.

The one where you have to use the gold needle on the Goblin is another rough one.

I was stuck at 41 bubbles forever.

Not that I turn my Wii on much anymore, but I did for Paper Mario, and I found I really enjoy the channels when taking a little break. Check the weather, the news, take some polls, and check some web pages. As others have said, Opera is much improved. Much easier to use.

I do polls way more often than I thought I would.  Once every couple of days or so.
14581  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii]rumour?... health channel coming soon? on: April 12, 2007, 02:53:52 PM
The Music Channel definitely sounds cool (especially if it somehow works with the new Virgin Radio that was just announced http://www.evilavatar.com/forums/showthread.php?t=28265&).

If they make this Health Channel fun, it could be very useful.  I actually tried the Wii Play health stuff for a while, but it didn't really inspire me to continue.  I get the impression, however, that the HC will be a little dry and boring.  Not sure what gives me that impression, but it's one I have.

I'm not going to be quite so inflammatory as CSL, but I'm not going for the full product, either.  I was expecting to really like this game, but it got a lukewarm reaction from me, at best.  Meh.
14583  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii]final internet channel now up on: April 12, 2007, 02:25:15 PM
I futzed around with it last night.  I have to say, it's improved 90% over the beta.  Easier to read, easier to scroll, favorites don't take minutes to load, easy access to the www and search options, disappearing tool bar, pages that were not loading now do.  Honestly, the only thing wrong with it is that it won't play certain movies.  But color me much more impressed.

I'm really, really liking this game.  It's funny, I was JUST asking about a good card-based game for the DS, and this flies in under my radar.

Did anyone manage to beat the bomb puzzle in under 16 seconds?  I can't do it... too hard...

Just beat it in 15"84.  Woot!

Are we talking about the arrow maze bomb wall thing?  That is the only one so far that I'm planning on just skipping.  18 seconds+ was near impossible for me.  Any trick to it, Grue?
14585  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii] Super Paper Mario Impressions on: April 11, 2007, 03:45:42 AM
I don't agree that it's not a platformer.  I do agree that it is still Paper Mario, though.  The feel is the same.  But there is a lot more hopping to get places and jumping over things.  Also, the "battles" are just real-time jumping on creatures, old-school style (at least until you get some new moves).  There is a lot of story, though, and the Paper Mario charm and wit.  It is what they advertised: An RPG-Platformer.
14586  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XBLA]Boom,boom rocket on: April 11, 2007, 03:40:35 AM

14587  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii] Super Paper Mario Impressions on: April 10, 2007, 10:34:57 PM
Agreed.  I have one level to go in the first chapter.  The pace is definitely improved.  I still haven't finished 1000 Year Door.  I liked it, but it just dragged for a while. 

The controls are very tight.  I understand there is still more to unveil, move-wise, so I'm looking forward to that.  Minor spoiler, that won't spoil if you've seen any footage:
Spoiler for Hiden:
Switching to 3D is very well done and cool every time you do it.  Useful, too, though there are times it may not be to your advantage.

This is may be the best game on the Wii right now.  Certainly, it's the only one that hooked me right out of the gate (and that includes Zelda).

Okay, I just listened to Wii.IGN.com's Wii-k in review podcast, and they just said that Hammer and Disaster are both still coming. The Podcast was from 4-2-07, and to be honest IGN is plugged in a lot higher than a smaller site. I do think it is weird that they aren't listed on their site, but several other games aren't on the site as well, like Battalion Wars 2, hell even Super Mario Strikers Soccer Charged isn't on there, and it's coming out in Europe in MAY with a fairly decent online mode.


Of course if you go check the link again you will see that it was an April Fool's joke....

Which part was the "joke," the podcast or the news article that the titles are indefinitely postponed?
