Ninja Gaiden fucking pisses me off. Stupid fucking enemy ninjas… WITH GUNS. Who the fuck gives ninjas GUNS?? Stupid Tecmo.

So i finished Halo about a week ago. First time i’ve ever played Halo. Okay so i’m like about 3 years late and quite possibly the last person on earth who hadn’t played Halo yet. It was on OKAY game i guess. Kinda repetitive. Didn’t like the whole A – B – C – B – A level progression and the grand total of something like, FIVE enemy characters throughout the entire game. But it was an OKAY game nonetheless. I’m hoping single player Halo 2 will be better than single player Halo 1. But i doubt i’ll be playing the campaign mode much. Halo 2 multiplayer Xbox LIVE baby!

E3 seems pretty good this year. Xbox has quite a nice lineup. Personally i’m looking forward to Fable. It sounds amazing. And the new Conker game looks fabbo. I never did finish Conker’s Bad Fur Day on N64. But since Conker: Live and Reloaded is a(n enhanced) remake, i guess i can just sort of pick up on Xbox where i left off on N64.

Sony’s got Killzone, a potential ‘Halo Killer’. But i’m not buying into the hype just yet. I’m a lot more excited about Metal Gear Solid 3.

Nintendo’s got Metroid 2, Starfox, Viewtiful Joe 2 and a new Zelda game. Quality. Pure quality.

Oh and let’s not forget the DS and the PSP.

There’s way too many things to cover here. Just hit up your favorite videogame website for more E3 news.

So many games, so little money.

just wanted to say that e3 this year is indeed pretty fucking cool. i have some pics from the floor if you wanna see the grandiosity of it all. ive played some cool games so far and i’m going back tomorrow. same old doom3 trailer from last year, which is annoying. i didnt have the press pass for the 10-minute playable demo. half-life 2 looks amazing…conker’s new game IS gonna be ill. theres a lot of cool shit coming out that i hadnt even heard of yet.

anyways…great site, keep up the good work (and lohan pics, rawr!)


Lucky bastard.

  4. Don’t feel too bad Justin, I just bought my XBOX last month (the sweet Halo green limited edition) and beat Halo a couple weeks ago.

    The PSP looks bad ass… I can’t wait for that & Metroid Prime 2

  5. not quite into the DS or PSP yet. then again i never really was into handhelds. but if the games are good enough, i might give them more of a look.

    oh yeah, EA is finally on board with Xbox LIVE. Now i won’t have to settle for inferior versions of EA games on PS2 just to be able to play online.

  6. what the hell is the PSP and the DS?

    on another note, im pissed that conker will be comig out for xbox instead of GC, wgere it should be coming out. i loved the N64 game. I guess i’ll have to just play it on my buddies xbox or something.

    oh well, there are hopefully going to be some aawesome games for the GC for me to buy. I wish the GC would grow up and get some more adult oriented games.

  7. What difficulty did you play the game at? Try going at it on heroic or legendary and you’ll find that those five enemies become 15-20 with some serious aim. In fact, co-op on legendary is always fun.

    And Ninja Gaiden isn’t THAT hard. There are only like two or three really frustrating bosses or enemy battles.

    I’m waiting for MP2 and the Zelda game. Although I fear the zelda game will offer nothing new. It looks like an updated Ocarina of Time.

  9. Yeah were finally talking about video games instead of girls boobys.

  10. nah, 5 as in like only 5 different enemy types. a little more variety would be nice. yeah i’m fudging with the numbers abit but there should’ve been more different bad guys. i got tired of killing the same ones over and over again. oh and those fucking flying little zombie spider thingies and that stupid exploding zombie that releases the fucking flying little zombie spider thingies are the most annoying enemies ever. more annoying than ninjas with GUNS.

    conker can’t be on GC because microsoft bought rare.

    #10 | Comment by Justin — May 13, 2004 @ 6:29 pm

  11. Ok, now I see. I can definitely agree with that. How about some better AI on the damn marines too? They’re about as trained to fight aliens as cheesecakes are.

    And the exploding zombie things fuck up your life if they’re anywhere near a bed of grenades.

    I think the translation for "ninja with guns" from english to japanese is "yaoi" or gay union.

    i dont own an xbox and my stupid pc won’t install the fucking game (im glad it’s a copy, at least i didn’t have to pay for something im not using). So you see, i’ll be the last person on earth to play it.

    i lose!

  16. Tecmo probably got the idea for ninjas with guns from reading back issues of The Tick comicbook. We all make our own improvements on tradition…

  17. I felt the same way about Halo. I finally played it and through all the hype it was just average.

  18. holly crap can nija gaiden be any harder, how am i supposed to fight a hellicopter with a sword and bow

    #18 | Comment by matt — May 14, 2004 @ 2:38 am

  19. Yes, Ninja Gaiden is fucking annoying as hell, fucking pisses me off. It’s like, you’re a ninja so everything has to be super hard. Like you cant just fight one dragon/raptor monster you have to fight 60 of them…….fucking Tecmo indeed

  21. I just went and bought my second xbox today. My first was from Nov 15 2001 oh yes I am a nerd. but anyway did you see the stuff from Microsoft’s press confrence at E3. i downloaded it from IGN. Its so cool. Halo 2 looks fucking sweet and now the date is set in stone and in the VP’s arm October 9th! Xbox live 3.0 looks awesome too. They are going to add a video chat feature how freaking cool is that.

  23. Halo=Sucks
    Platofrmers=Suck, which means most nintendo games
    Ninja Gaiden was bad ass, pussies.

    Also, i use my xbox more as a media center after i modded it. Most games suck on it and i couldn’t give 2 shits about graphics.

    Casual poser gamers own 1 or 2 systems, hardcore gamers own all current consoles and a bad ass WINDOWS computer. Handhelds are for people who travel and 15 year old girls.

    But PSP is gonna kick gameboys ass, theyve been working with handheld devices more years then how many times nintendo programmers get shot down by chicks.

    So far PS2 or PC best video gaming systems. I make video games for a great living so i’m right your wrong, get the fuck out.
