Maximo was a excellent game it's a shame they never made a third one and continued with the unfinished story.

Good games again Ein.. Never played any of the Wild Arms past #2 but enjoyed those other 3 titles you got.

Yup. They chose to abandon the cell shaded graphics... wich was a big mistake imo. The game had a nice niche with the cell shaded graphics (they even got rid of the anime intro on 5). 4 and 5, not only brought a huge change to the game in the form of a new battle system... wich was ok-ish but they watered down the graphics to look like any other generic RPG. Big mistake.
Still... they are enjoyable games though. I got 5 and tried it out and i got stalled mid-way through 4... i will get back to it sometime.

It all makes sense now. Esca is making things up!
I have been playing video games 24 hours hardly time to sleep. Heck several power sock broke from overuse. Good once may I add. Still couldn't beat Monster hunter three and he come here and buy so many rubbish and beat them. On top of all that Monster Hunter 3 and many other brilliant top sellers highly praised games aren't in his playing list!?

I don't know... The camera made the game a pain in the ass and some of the enemy weaknesses seemed absolutely arbitrary. I mean, who would have thought to attack the bomb duders while crouching or that the pirate boss' weakness was his peg leg. Other than that the game was alright though.

Edit: Oh and the power-ups that over-write each other can go fist themselves.

My titanium spork came in today! This is actually the second titanium spork I've owned. But this is the first one that has a bottle opener on the end!

I fucking...I want to find the guy who came up with the spork, and KILL him HORRIBLY. I hate that stupid useless thing. I cant stab my food properly, and liquids spill down the front of it. Theres no constructive use I can see for it.

I only get a small fraction of what is released there's loads of stuff I neither want or buy. I'm not even the biggest buyer in this thread, I also play everything I buy so I don't see why it's a waste.

At least I don't quit half the games I get halfway through.
