@FF7Cloud I think that changes the format of what we're going for.
I think each person nominating one game within a time limit, making as good a case for that specific game as they can, and then the community voting on a consensus pick is the way to go.
If you're making a multiple game list, you're going to have to come up with multiple arguments why someone should vote for each of your five games over any of the other games on your list.
Finished up Demon's Souls tonight.. I'm glad I finally got around to playing it!
I really enjoyed it. I still think Dark Souls is the superior game, though I really like that Demon's gives you access to all the worlds immediately. I also think its length was better, I feel like Dark Souls starts to drag a bit later on and could have been trimmed a tad.
I'm torn between the estus/bonfire system of Dark Souls and the health system in Demon's. Around mid game I felt like I was needing to farm a lot for grass but toward the end I had more than I needed.. I think I prefer the estus out of convenience and deciding whether or not to kindle adds an extra layer of strategy and difficulty in my opinion.
Finally, I thought Demon's was pretty easy but I'm sure that's only because its the last of the series I played. I probably would have had a really tough time if I played it when it first came out. A couple areas were problematic for me and really only the Maneater boss took a good several tries.. nothing like some of the Bloodborne bosses or Fume Knight or something though.
@bard91 Weird, I honestly did get them naturally. Liquid Mercury seems to be the component most find as rare, but I seem to fight nothing but Anubis in the 4th palace (on both playthroughs) so maybe I'm just a lucky fella.
Just finished Gundam Build Fighters, what a wonderful little series. Give whoever thought of this role for Ramba Ral a promotion lol. There's some wonderful little bits of fanservice in there for longtime Gundam fans, seeing Bernie and Chris together cheering on Al was just... ;_;
Sony was the first one to openly say they had no problem with crossplatform multiplayer, when MS had actual policies against. Then MS opened their policies and Sony has remained silent since. I agree that Sony has nothing to win from crossplay but that's their problem, while MS and, specially, Nintendo have a lot to gain.
My point is that it's all just PR talk and that it won't happen.
After 23 days, thousands of views, 198 kills and hundreds of posts, we now have a winner:
Congratulations to Super Mario Galaxy, the survivor of the longest Kill Your Babies!
Thankfully the reasons for posts did not sway the outcome, but there were still more posts arguing for SMB than DOOM. 8-7 may have been the poll, but the true score is 6-4 based off of all of you who followed the rules.
I thank everyone so many times and it's your willingness to put thought and fun into these. Without you these mean nothing.
I'm taking a very short break, but my next thread should return to some sense of normalcy (for me at least).
A really good podcast this week. Two hours and all. There were a lot of topics and they were nicely handled. Good job, Kyle and the panel! And even Ben, lol. :) And I always love these video betting results, please keep 'em coming at least once a month. Really fun to watch.
Also: there's been some excellent final words for many weeks now! Jones has been on fire (plus I love other's reactions, especially Kyle when he tries not to laugh and intervene), and Brad continued the tradition very nicely. :)
And hey. Someone really should keep collecting all the bets. We had that excellent thread here, but unfortunately it died slowly. I feel we had a good bet a few weeks back, too, but now I can't remember at all what it was about or between who two.
