LostWinds, World of Goo and Eternity's Child all look like they're pretty sweet - especially the last of the three, I'm really digging the gothic flavor to it. (And yes, children, there is a difference between 'emo' and 'gothic.' ) All three perk my interest more than the games on the first page, which mostly/entirely look like crap. I mean, five dollars for solitaire? I can buy a pack of cards for two dollars, and like Kohta said, it's free on the computer. I guess the only benefit comes if you're a pedophile and looking at young girls dressed as angels and devils gets you hard.
Now let's hear some information on Der Blob! That is the WiiWare title I'm looking the most forward to!
Don't know about you guys, but Defend You Castle looks awesome.
MAXIMUM AGREE! 100%!
EDIT And... because people genuinely seem to be getting roused by it... the artwork in Eternity's Child makes it look like a really bad webcomic. It's pointed at a very particular web-savvy demographic, and I doubt the gameplay will live up to anybody's expectations. I say this now, as a prediction. Can't wait till it hits the US shores to prove me correct

I agree with Fry that Eternity's Child isn't that interesting, although I'm not as strong on the subject.
It has personality I suppose; I can see that in the characters. But none of it looks that interesting or unique. Defend your Castle and World of Goo have uniqueness in their design. They stand out and their design, but they also work without looking off or "stupid". Eternity's Child looks like something out of Deviant Art. Just the same old same old. Like any gothic web comic. SO RANDUM XD.
Was going to make a "change" American Kirby, but I'm not that skilled at Fireworks.

Some gameplay footage of Eternity's Child. Don't think it was posted yet. I don't like saying this but this game does not look fun at all. The level design looks like it's been ripped straight out of some shitty Flash game.
...Ew, it does. D: That's a massive disappointment.
If this guy made, like, stand-alone pictures or something, he'd be made of epic win. But the game doesn't seem to be working out very well, and it feels like the minute he'd progress into any more regular storytelling method, he'd kind of flop. That's kinda why I was psyched over the screenshots.

Quite unimpressive, but I'll wait for reviews.
NEWS FROM THE JAPAN LAUNCH Some of the games have notices that pop up while downloading, saying something like "some parts of this game may be downloaded seperately, but will cost you extra points" just to tell you if this game has any optional downloadable extras, and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles is one of the few!
Oh, and if you want to play Dr Mario online with a friend who hasn't downloaded a copy, just send him a temporary one (just like DS single-cart multiplayer)!
Early reviews say that Final Fantasy is looking good, with a lot of content for just 200 blocks of memory.

Shrikeswind: So, having said in my post in Dream Fighters what I've been spending my quarantine on, what about you guys? How are you hanging onto sanity?

Shrikeswind: Also I don't know that I've ever spent as long building a Smash fighter as I did with WG, and I'm going to hit this one hard here, it was all the costume work.

Shrikeswind: I'm reminded why I don't bother with that. I had the luxury of easy-to-grab screenshots and it still took literal hours to finish that post.

Nester the Lark: Let's not talk about me and sanity.
Aug 25, 2020 10:19:20 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Very well, we shall talk of other things, like shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings, and why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.
Aug 25, 2020 11:51:55 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: It strikes me that perhaps I should not be mentioned in the same breath as sanity myself.

Boo Destroyer: RuneScape.... I haven't heard that name in a long, long time.
Aug 27, 2020 18:35:05 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: I still play. Matter of fact, I'm currently playing. It actually just came out with a new skill this past March, if you can believe it.

nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.
