Get any good games for Christmas?
« on: December 25, 2005, 09:26:40 pm »
If you celebrate it, that is.

But yeah. A couple cool DS games: Nintendogs and Trauma Center: Under the Knife.

And, possibly even cooler: L33T Tiles.

So yep. Good stuff. Anyone else have good luck with santa this year?

I got money for Christmas and I'm taking it boxing day shopping tomorrow morning. There's an 85% chance I'll be picking up a DS with Mario Kart. Other options are: an MP3 player, a new graphics card for my PC or saving it away for an airsoft gun.
What meaning has my life that the inevitability of death cannot destroy it?

Should have got it far earlier. I got it on release.


I didn't get any, since I didn't want any. My brother got a DS though.

If you hit them up online before the end of the 27th you can get $30 off Age Of Empires 3, Civilization 4, and Need For Speed 9. Free shipping. They might have it in store but it will be a zoo.

Mario Kart DS and Kirby's Power Paintbrush. Power Paintbrush is stupidly fun, whilst playing I grin like an idiot :)

I just got back from buying a DS and Mario Kart but haven't opened it yet. My dad is seriously pissed off right now and claims I am addicted to video games. He's talking about removing all tvs, vcrs, computers, dvds, video games etc from the house for a year but I highly doubt he would go through with it. He'll probably cool down by later tonight and then I'll crack it open and have some fun.

I also picked up Xmen Legends for xbox and its pretty sweet.

CoD2, GTA: Liberty City Stories and BF2: Special Forces.

CoD2 is fucking amazing on veteran, a challenging game even for me, and I still havent touched on the multiplayer; Liberty City Stories' graphics are some of the most amazing handheld graphics I have bared witness to, and I havent got around to playing BF2: SF yet because EA sucks MAH BALLS, stupid automatic patch downgrader, I have to redownload v1.12 to play online -.-

Serves you right. Filthy game addict. Look at you sitting all day at home, playing those stupid games and posting in stupid forums. What a complete waste of time and money. Next thing you know, you'll grab a shotgun and shoot up your classmates. Junkie. What's next, becoming a top poster here? Your dad should have a serious talk with you about your addiction.

I bought FEAR last week as a little present for my excellent exam results (see http://forum.machinaesupremacy.com/index.php?topic=1851.0). Great game.  Though the much praised horror elements don't impress me at all so far (1), the gameplay is really great, especially with the AI and bullet time effects.

(1) Seriously, some lame cliché horror effects. The genuine weirdness of the Half Life 2 setting was creepier.

That's why most "horror" games aren't that great. They rely on clichés to help them scare people; it's the reason Doom 3 got boring after the first level.

Yes but I'm always late when it is about games because I don't play so much. :) On the other hand I can't afford new games because I'm so stingy bastard. :P

Doom 3 was only 'scary' because the guy you played as seems to only posses one goddamn hand, and can't hold a simple torch. Disliked Doom 3, didn't find it that great.
