My brother's point of view on my point of view
(All comments are written by my brother)

I apologize for my brother's poor judgement on these titles. Some of my numbers may be extreme but that's just to contrast his. And as for the God of War rating, that's my fair and balanced rating before he (Icarus) rips it apart.

What about Animal Crossing?
I am sure you will give it 8 for the NGC version(because it is just like the N64 version) and a 10 for the NDS Animal Crossing 2 am I right?

I don't frequent this thread, mainly because I hate Icarus and hopes he dies a painful and bloody death, but He gave Konami's Tokimeki Memorial title (the first installment in the playstation) a 9, which is a score I agree with very much so as that game kicked mucho ass, but Icarus, wheres Valkyrie Profile? TSK TSK!

so, what's the deal with these scores? you are contrasting icarus' reviews? icarus can't and will not rip god of war apart. why? because god of war is a fantastic achievement for epic action-adventuring. god of war is simply incredible, and i think icarus will see how good it is when he plays it for the first time. what poor judgement on icarus' part are you talking about?

That's interesting. I was thinking of asking Icarus if he shared the same views with his brother on games.

My brother isn't here to make a response, so I'll just respond on my own.

Abaddon ~ "That bitch gave Legend of Oasis a 2? I'll fucking kill him! "

I don't understand what he's thinking. That's one awesome game.

gearhound ~ "some of your brother's reviews are complete trash. secret of mana a 0/10? a 5 for y's VI?? zelda, metroid, etc. wtf is he thinking?"

He said that the reason Secret of Mana sucks is because the characters controlled by the computer AI are stupid and get stuck all the time behind walls and objects; I just think he's not that good at it. He returned Ys VI because, he said, there was no longer any incentive to keep playing it. As for the latter titles, well, I don't know what to say.

Paper exe ~ "no Icarus gived it 0.
but his brother scores are alot different then Icarus so he may give it a different score."

I don't think he played it, so don't expect a score from him.

SavedFromSin ~ "screw GOW icarus, give me a Vay review!"

I'll review Vay tommorrow along with Lethal Enforcers II: Gun Fighters, then, I'll review GoW sometime shortly thereafter.

Abaddon ~ "I don't frequent this thread, mainly because I hate Icarus and hopes he dies a painful and bloody death, but He gave Konami's Tokimeki Memorial title (the first installment in the playstation) a 9, which is a score I agree with very much so as that game kicked mucho ass, but Icarus, wheres Valkyrie Profile? TSK TSK! "

Valkyrie Profile currently resides in other people's game collections, in the bargain bins at certain game stores, and up for auction on eBay.

gearhound ~ "so, what's the deal with these scores? you are contrasting icarus' reviews? icarus can't and will not rip god of war apart. why? because god of war is a fantastic achievement for epic action-adventuring. god of war is simply incredible, and i think icarus will see how good it is when he plays it for the first time. what poor judgement on icarus' part are you talking about?"

He's referring to how when he was playing it and I was watching him, how I was commenting that it didn't look fun to play. I guess I'll know whether or not it's any good tommorrow.

Sinful Sam ~ "That's interesting. I was thinking of asking Icarus if he shared the same views with his brother on games."

Certainly, on some games. The ones he chose to score (vastly) different than mine were games which we have completely different opinions about, such as Final Fantasy III (he doesn't think it's good).

gearhound ~ "i think they do, but that depends how old his bro is... how old is he, icarus?"
Joe Redifer ~ "Icarus is the younger brother and Icarus is 36 or 42."

Yes and no. I'm the younger brother but I'm not in my latter thirties/early forties. I'm much younger than that, thankfully (26).

What kind of a response is that? I'm asking why the **** didn't you review it yet!!

I already have the game, hell you can download it in a few hours if you want! Thats why I asked.

"I don't understand what he's thinking. That's one awesome game." Damn right it is, one of my favorite top down perspective games of all time, the whole gauntlet thing, and the whole arabian feel to it, man that was one CD full of kick ass

If you must know, I doubt I'll ever get around to reviewing it -- I don't own the game and have no intention of tracking down a copy anytime soon. I'm far too preoccupied with other things to dredge up some offshoot RPG from Square's crypt.
