NES Final Fantasy 7 - the Advent Children hack

Yeah, the audio quality on this video is just nails-on-chalkboard.  The game itself sounds pleasant.  The guy is clearly fumbling around at the beginning too, so not the best presentation.

NES Final Fantasy 7 - the Advent Children hack

Not to be confused with the CGI movie Advent Children:<br /><br />It's old hat to most of you that a Chinese company tried to port FF7 to the nes.  But some homegrown nerds have made a mod of the Chinese "port" of Final Fantasy 7 so it closely resembles the original English-release of the ...

15 years of reviews!

yeah, that guy was Alienblue.  I talked to him a bit on email but just the self-pitying was too much.  I mean, I have a litany of problems in my life, but I don't bring them to a classic gaming website--this is to lose myself in something else, to take my mind off such problems.<br /><br /...

15 years of reviews!

Congratulations, Dave.  It's been 10 (!!!) years since I started reading this.  Stopped reading it the last few years but have been back lately.<br /><br />Made a few internet friends on here that I emailed occasionally:  notably, Atarifever whose Canadian wit was always entertaining,...

The 3D Bionic Commando from 2009 is actually pretty good

<p>About 5 years ago, right before I embarked on my PhD studies, I harassed a few of you to play this game.  Didn't have a computer or console that could play it, and no one seemed terribly interested.</p><p>I was surprised it's actually a lot of fun--they got the mechanics just right, the swin...

Forget about Doom 4 -- get Brutal Doom

I say this as someone who hates mods--<br /><br />A new engine, as well as a mod for the original sprite-based Doom games has been made, gzdoom and the mod Brutal Doom.<br /><br />Brutal Doom v19 makes this into the best FPS I've played in recent years.  Just look at the Youtube videos.  A...

What generation of games do you find yourself playing the most?

<p>I really liked the PSP--was never a Sony fan up til then.  Was the PSP's resident defender on here for a while.  People complained it was mostly compilations and re-hashes, but since I didn't play any Sony stuff, it was all new to me.  The screen was just beautiful--loved playing t...

a generation behinder inquires about what I should get for the PS3

thanks a lot for chiming in!  I'll get the FFX/2 on disk sooner or later--the PSN store charges as much as the disks, I find, so I'm not gonna buy anything on there.  Valve wisely prices things a tad lower than the 'tactile versions'.

a generation behinder inquires about what I should get for the PS3

I'm pretty satisfied with my understanding of the story--

Good Space Marines with American accents fight Nazi Space Marines with non-American accents.

a generation behinder inquires about what I should get for the PS3

<p>Is it worth playing into the first Killzone much?  It's about as bland as the reviews said it was, judging from the first two hours or so.  Just wondering if it picks up later on.<br /><br />I remember loving Killzone Liberation, the third person shooter that kinda was modeled after the...
