The "whatever's on your mind" thread

posted by GuruGuru214 on - last edited - Viewed by 166.4K users

One of the things that's great about this forum is its randomness. Well, this is the epitome of it: a thread for whatever random thought happens to be passing through your mind.

For example, I've just been struck by the most random craving for Taco Bell nachos.

    I like green! I'd be very friendly to green people. All the time.

  • Fun Fact: Green is my favorite color.

    See?

  • Woah, there were a fair few pages to get through tonight...

    I did not mean to cause offense.
    Just rather suprised really, that the age range is so varied these days.

    I mean, most of the people here are older than me, (out of the regulars, I think Fawful is a few months younger, only slightly younger than my best friend in real life in fact).

    And I thought I was quite old for a forum fequenter.

    I'm just being a bit silly really.

    *Scratches her head* So does this mean 28 is old? Cos if it is, I'd better go find my walking stick...

    Some people like it, some hate it.

    People tend to have it on toast.

    Some people prefer Vegemite... mmmm yum!

    @RetroVortex said: I kind of view Silverwolfpet as the saintly Jesus of this forum, Secret Fawful as the mischievous Devil and Doodo! as the mortal man, caught between those two, struggling to make sense of it all.

    Now that is quite a thought.... :)

    @RetroVortex said: Thankski verski muchski palski. Just wait until I add the colour (hint: I'll be using a lot of crimson). ;)

    I didn't know you spoke Bulgarian...

  • @puzzlebox said: Ants are pretty much unequivocally amazing. Like this species that builds boats (although they could do to learn about outboard motors), and these ones that have adapted to tidal life in a mangrove swamp. Fascinating little things.

    That's incredible. Hail our ant overlords and they're tremendous strength.

    I'm still learning. I'm going to Nodnol next month to take an advanced course.

    That reminds me...I have to cut the grass today!

  • @RetroVortex

    Brutal Legend was a let down for me, just as I was starting to enjoy the game and accept it as a humourous, simple action title; the game throws a curve ball and introduces obligatory, badly executed strategy sections. I stopped playing after that but it's still a game that's worth giving a go, just for that classic Tim Schafer style of story, characters, dialogue and visual creativity.

    Mirror's Edge is an underrated game. Whilst it's far from perfect, it's portrayal of parkour and the feeling of being at one with the character is tangible.

    After Burner Climax is an amazing game; the aggressive airborne cousin of Outrun 2. Once you learn the intricacies of the gameplay, it becomes a highly addictive score attack game. A genuinely exhilarating game.

    If you've never played Rez before then you're in for a treat. Much like Flower (PS3), it's more of an experience than a game (although there is some great Panzer Dragoon style gameplay). The ideal post pub experience.

    Sonic: Episode 1 is the best title I've played in the series since Sonic CD (or maybe Sonic Rush), it's more or less a nice return to the basics. However, it is let down by some terrible physics that are some how much worse than the physics found in the original Sonic! Also, some of the design choices found in later levels are dubious, often being overly complex thus leading to frustrating gameplay. All in all though, it certainly gave me a nice feeling of nostalgia.

    I know which game you should play last and that's Final Fantasy XIII, that game makes me want to vomit due to it's repulsive and offensive levels of crapness. It's seriously awful and an absolute disgrace when held up against the likes of VI and VII.

    I'm curious as to what "Castlevania: Symphony of the Nite" is?! A special dyslexic version of the PSOne classic perhaps? :p

    XD
    Yeah I 100% achievemented After Burner Climax, very good game.
    And Mirror's Edge is indeed very underrated.
    I decided to settle for Sonic and Sega Allstar racing in the end.
    Now thats very underrated! :D

    I mean, I've played most of these games, but I never get round to sitting down and aiming to complete them.
    You would think someone with that many games would have a gamerscore of more than 12337, wouldn't you? XD
    (My best friend who plays games obsessively and has a similar amount has a gamerscore of 51590! Now thats obbsesive! XD)

    EDIT: oh and Rez is a pretty good game. A lovely visual treat, but the two best rail shooters are still Panzer Dragoon Orta on the xbox (which I have, and I was playing it on the 360, but the 360 compatibility has a progress breaking bug which is depressing), and Star Fox 64.
    (Which I might play on my arcade machine, but the emulator makes the game much darker than its supposed to be which makes it much harder. I need to look into that...)

    EDIT 2: I have to disagree with you on Sonic 4 episode 1, I don't really like it at all.
    As you said the physics are terrible, and the level design has some good parts, but overall its underwhelming.
    Then again, my favourite 2D Sonic is still Sonic 2, so I'm kind of an oddball.
