I resent that comment about a sex life with your right hand! What about us lefties?
|Er, I donít know. Iíve never talked to a leftie about their masturbation habits. I always assumed it involved mustard and fishing hooks.|
The Final Grumble:Wondering where all the letters are? Me too. Then I checked last Sundayís column, and silly me! I forgot to give you guys a topic! Well, let me rant a bit first, and youíll see what this weekendís topic is.
Skies of Arcadia. I actually bought this game, and a Dreamcast, years ago on Googleís praise that it was an awesome game. And you know what? I hated it. Hated the character designs,(Is that Pippi Longstocking on my team?!) hated the atypical story,(recover the moon stones! I mean crystals! I mean, bejeweled monkey heads!) and I deeply hated the random battles.
Every few steps another banal fight. All of them took over a minute, were ALWAYS costly to my parties hp and mp, and worse, gave very little in rewards for my hard work. It was agonizing. Worse still were the airship battles. A thrilling concept to be sure, but DAMN. Were they long! And boring! Imagine two airships circling each other for 20 minutes, usually waiting for some story guided element to let you win/lose.(ďArr! Now, matey! Use thar harpoon!Ē) After ten hours of this game, I simply threw down my controller and gave my Dreamcast a hefty kicking for being so bad to me.
Now, donít get me wrong. Skies of Arcadia does have a wonderfully imaginative world, but that still doesnít detract from the games painful downfall, in that it simply failed to be fun.
Now, thatís my opinion. If you disagree, send it to Google, because I really donít care why you think Skies of Arcadia should roxxors my soxxors. What I do want to hear are about the games that you were looking forward to, and that let you horribly, horribly down.
So get on it. When was the last time you had the chance to throw your opinion out to thousands of people and have them actually listen?
