I need to use my PS3 more. It's pretty much a netflix machine right now. :/ Last game I bought for it was Metal Gear Rising back in february.

Though with Last of Us out now I'll finally use it again...once I get around buying it.

Or if you really want a kart racer on Wii, Excitebots is probably your best bet. Sonic All-Stars is also a great choice but the HD versions are better.


Man I could talk about the Wii's library all day. My favorite video game library this past gen. Zack and Wiki, Mario Galaxy, Rhythm Heaven Fever, Wario Land: Shake It, New Super Mario Bros Wii, Warioware Smooth Moves, Punch Out, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Trauma Center, Little King's Story, Another Code R, etc. Probably my favorite home console of all time (not including handhelds, otherwise the title belongs to the DS.) if Gamecube backwards compatibility is taken into account.

Man, thinking back, DS+Wii+360 was gaming bliss last gen.

I've never had anything against Mario Kart Wii, I personally really enjoyed it! I always loved playing online, unlocking characters, winning cups, it so much fun.

Aha Spino, I've heard so many times about your love for Rhythm Heaven Fever and Wario Land: Shake It, I'm still yet to try those out.

Mario Kart Wii's biggest problem was that it was unbalanced in every way. Characters were unbalanced, Funky was so much better than Donkey Kong or Wario. Vehicles were unbalanced, there was no reason to use karts or outdrift bikes when indrift bikes were so much better. Items were unbalanced, the ratio in which certain items appear was screwed up, nevermind how some items were just straight up stupid.
Mario Kart 7 is Mario Kart Wii done right. From the track design to the balance. It's a contender for the best Mario Kart game.

And I know I tend to express my undying love for Rhythm Heaven Fever every chance I get, but I don't recall throwing out praises for Shake It! every time. :P Unless you're confusing it with Wario Land 4.

That said, Rhythm Heaven Fever is my game of the generation. I absolutely recommend it to anyone.

That was the problem I've had with Mario Kart Wii too. I mean, when I was racing with my friends, we tend to think that certain karts guaranteed your victory (well if you had the skill to back it up that is), in which common characters were at common placements.

I've watched my step-sister play Rhythm Heaven Fever, which it looked pretty fun!

Yeah I definitely agree that the game had a lot of flaws and such, but I still enjoyed it immensely. There's just something about it which just really makes me like it. :3

I haven't really played any games like Rhythm Heaven Fever really, might need to save up a bit of money and then splash my cash on some recommended games some time.

Ah, Steams summer sale...

Anyone get anything?

I've gotten some things (L4D1, Strike Suit Mega Pack, Greed: Black Border and Star Raiders) and a list of other things that I'm thinking about buying.

I haven't gotten anything yet. I was hoping The Walking Dead DLC would be on sale, even if only slightly, but it's not. I know I can get it 20% off at GMG but I've heard it's only like an hour or two and while I liked the original, I haven't heard people raving about 400 Days so I'll probably pass until it hits ~$2.

Aside from that there wasn't really anything I wanted that I don't already have, so I'll keep an eye on the indie games but beyond that I still have plenty to play.

(My Steam Sale creed is if I don't think I'll play it by the next time a Sale rolls around, I don't buy it.)

I'm too busy playing Mario & Luigi Dream Team. Got it two days ago and it's going to suck up my time for a while XD (Disappointed at Bowser not being the first enemy you battle though!).

I'll check the steam sales for some cheap indie RPG's as I do every year though.

Not related to the topic at hand, but, relating to Video Games, I did want to ad for this. ^^ http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=301304&page=3

This is my first time using Steam, so, I guess I can check out the games while they last. :3 Right now I'm playing Tales of the Abyss for the 3DS though. Forgot how fun it is. ;___;
Hm, in other news, it looks like the Wii U isn't selling too well. :(

This will probably forever be my favorite Steam Sale picture:
Spoiler:


I've been trying to trade a copy of Super Street Fighter IV that I've had since the beginning, but still no luck :/

Oh man, I'm gonna need to pop down to GAME sometime and get £100 for my Steam wallet. These are the sort of sales which sells you games!

I know exactly where my next pay-cheque is going. I just hope I can HOLD off long enough. Also! For those who have steam, add me up!

I really recommend that you all take to heed of the tips I posted in the deals thread, especially if you aren't much of a Steam user. You'll end up saving a lot of money if you employ them well.

Today's deals are looking very nice! Might be able to pick up Tomb Raider tomorrow if I get down to GAME in the morning, still need to try playing that game properly. Also, want to try Resident Evil 6, last time I play an RE game was on the Wii.

Hmmm, I haven't played Resident Evil game in a long time. :3

I mean, sure, it's a typical - ZOMBIES ARE COMING, KILL, KILL, KILL game, but, I do like the refreshing story line behind each of them~

Anything with the name Far Cry in it is an amazing game! Gets better and better, and you cannot top the man that is Vaas.

And yeah, but what zombie games will you find that aren't like that? They won't be as entertaining otherwise, best way to keep players playing is by involving them more. However, it would be nice to see a more TWD show based game, but more free roaming than the actual TWD game.

The control's for RE scares me away.

First one I played was RE4 and it had some very, very, annoying controls.

Anyway, going to get Just Cause 2, The Hitman Collection, and Kinetic Void as well.

I'm consdiering Stardrive but still not sure if I should get that.

I know... I completed the main story of FC3 on easy, normal and hard and Vaas is just amazing... i really hope there will be a dlc where you can be him (though he's dead now). I loved Far Cry 2, Far Cry 3 was a game where i was just doing nothing just to look at the scenery since its so beautiful... I dont really know what to expect of Blood Dragon though...

Far Cry 2 was an amazing game, and the day I heard about Far Cry 3 I just squealed on the inside! I should actually buy some FC3 merchandise to put around my room, a bit of Vaas decorations here and there would be pretty nifty.

That was it, RE4 was the game. I agree with you completely, I was just like "what am I doing?" when I first started playing the game.

Those death scenes...

Huge boulder is chasing you down

PRESS 1 and 3!

WHICH BUTTONS ARE 1 AND 3!!!

*Presses random buttons*

Press 4 and 6!

WHERE IS 4 AND 6?

*Presses random buttons, gets squished*

Was amusing though. I installed this game on a couple of computers at Votech and everyone who tried playing it ended up screaming in frustration after about 5 minutes.

Well at least it calls us into action immediately and it makes you pay attention to the game. I really enjoyed it, scary moments throughout, it's unique in it's own way haha

Resident Evil 4 is one game that I've always wanted to play, but never got around to. For some reason I never believe the hype for any game, but Resident Evil 4 seems like it could really live up to people's hype.

Good, don't believe the hype. You're better off that way. It always is.
