    I need to go and complete some ridiculously hard game too. I don't really have anything too out there in difficulty that I've beaten. I don't really know anything about any of the Megaman games after X3, nor am I even familiar with all of the originals. The games that followed just didn't feel as interesting to me, they lacked that charm. But they might be good on their own merits, I dunno.

    I'm beginning to miss the great outdoors now. Though I live in the city, there are some wonderful forest areas just a few hours travel away... though I think I'll at least wait until winter is over. I hate dusty areas too. I must've sneezed thirty times today.

    I was really getting into it too. Since you said it was scary, I tried to really immerse myself in it and imagine how it would be like being that girl; not just merely reading about her. I figured since it was a comic book strip, I'd have to do some work to make it scary. Guess they showed me. :P I finished it, made it all the way to the bottom. The second time she came flying, I was ready for it, so it wasn't as scary, but I was the edge of my seat until I reached the bottom of that page after the first scare...

    From what I hear, beating battletoads is pretty damn difficult. I've only seen AVGN's review of it, and it looked annoying as hell. Nobuo Uematsu is an amazing composer, he's responsible for some of my favorite tracks of all time. Final Fantasy VII's soundtrack is still one of my most treasured possessions.

    I love Megaman X, X2 and X3, but nothing after that. I like the 2D, and the SNES graphics are flawless. Everything looks great, and everything they added later only detracted from the experience for me. Torment is indeed a PC game, and also tied for my favorite game of all time. The detail, character development, setting and plot are all breathtaking. Too bad it's hardly known of, and sold fairly poorly. Luckily, they started reprinting it later so I could at least pick up a cheap copy for my collection.

    Sounds wonderful. All that fresh air is mighty tempting right now... I disassembled a huge closet today, and now my airways are all clogged up due the enormous amounts of dust. I think I must be a little allergic to large amounts of it. That must be one fine-looking lake. Lakes in general are often a sight to behold, I used to go camping with my father when I was younger up at a small lake surrounded by forest when I was younger. It didn't have rainbow-colored rocks, but it was quite nice too.

    Oh man. That was a really clever gimmick. I didn't expect it to move and make that nasty clicking sound. I got to admit, that surprised me a lot, and gave me a real scare. A very typical story, but the way he drew the deformed limbs and that jump-scare really did a number on me.

    Yes. A lot of retro games have such incredibly distinctive and memorable music. It's all the more impressive because they had so little to work with. That Bayou Billy music is really funky! I hadn't heard that one in a decade or something, it sure does swing. But the game is so unnecessarily hard and frustrating. :P Castlevania has some awesome music. I love the classic "Vampire Killer." I listen to that even though I've never played the games. Great pick on Final Fantasy X too, that's one of my absolute favorite games. I play it every 2-3 years, and it's an absolute joy. I shan't rant about it, but I love everything about the game, including the music.

    Some of my other favorites include everything from Megaman X, X2 and X3. That music is simply divine. Another fantastic soundtrack comes from the criminally underrated Planescape: Torment. One of the best roleplaying games ever created. A sample.

    I'm sure your air is still a hundred times better than what you get in any city. Plus, if you've seen James Rofle's review of "From Hell it Came", you know just how dangerous those trees can get.

    I'll take a look at the comic. I'm always in the mood for a good scare.

    Yeah, there are a lot of good ones. I didn't realize just how much the music set the mood when I was younger, but in retrospect, it plays such a huge part in forging the identity of the series.

    The mountains will be fine. But there won't be any vegetation, and naturally no animals, left on them, so they might lose some of their allure. Anyhow, I'm sure nature will adapt! You'll see cockroaches and rabbits eating toxic waste and birds making nests out of empty canisters before you know it.

    Damn. Guess it's off to prison for me again. At least I confirmed my thesis; kids today die easy.

    Ohhh yeah. You know it. The second game in particular has the coolest, most awesome soundtrack. All of them are great, though, and they're definitely funky. Chemical Plant, Aquatic Ruins and Casino Night are some my favorites.

    I know. We should be glad the expression isn't "At least I'm not getting struck by lightning." I guess you're right. It *would* be a plus to not have whatever the Canadian version of FBI/CIA is after me. I think I could take them, but I wouldn't want your town to get blown up as collateral damage. That would put a damper on the experience.

    Given that Norway has a population of around 5 million, I think you could still take us. Just be careful not to provoke the ire of Russia in the process.

    The future is doomed. Today's kids can't even take a katana to the face!

    Exactly. That's the true joy of Sonic!

    Unless you're the least lucky guy on earth. What will console you then? "At least it ain't raining?" maybe. Maybe we can arrange some sort of media stunt. You convince the Canadian government that I'm some sort of big-shot. Tell them I'm on the Nobel Peace Prize committee and I'm considering "insert worthy Canadian contender" for it, and I need to see him in person! As soon as I get my temporary Visa (and a healthy government grant), I reveal the hoax and head on over to British Columbia.

    I just hope Canada doesn't declare war. But that's a risk I'm willing to take!

    Typical new-generation attitude. In my days, we usually lost a few pints before breakfast, just getting out of bed!

    Doesn't sound too bad, at least there's a lot of variety. I'm a bit of a traditionalist though, when it comes to Sonic, I want speed, damn it! I want to see everything flash by until I panic as an enemy appears and I lose all my rings.

    That's how I feel too. When I complain about something trivial, I try to put it into perspective and look at how lucky I am comparatively. Of course, that doesn't always work. If you feel like crap, it's not a big consolation that someone else feels worse somewhere. It's been a good long while since I've been outside my own country. There's a lot I want to see as well. The internet can be a great way to get together with people who share your interests. There's a community for just about anything, but even so, the anime community is enormous, so you'll never be lonely with this hobby.

    Yeah. Books are hard. All them words and no purdy pictures. I'm such a philistine lately. Tsukihime is legendary, so if I don't like that, there's no hope!

    Them is rich-man's sticks! You kids don't know how good you got it.

    I know nothing about the actual game, but that little sample certainly didn't entice me to find out.

    Aye, knowing that there's a good chance you'll get killed or maimed is a pretty big deterrence when choosing your vacation spot. It's important to remember how lucky we are to live in what are comparatively very safe and good locations, but we should never settle for that. Complacency will only deteriorate said conditions. You sure know how to sell it! You should work for a travel agency, or better yet, an ambassador!

    They sound like a nice mixture. Not as heavy as books, but more subtle in their storytelling than many other types of games. I still got Tsukihime on my computer, might pick that back up in the not-too-distant future.

    You kids today with your teleportation devices and arcade cabinets. In my days, we hit each other with sticks and rubbed rocks together, and that was plenty for us!

    A friend showed me that one, and I was like "-_-." Then I laughed, and felt pretty good about my decision not to play 3D Sonic games.

    All countries have crime and horrible events, it's just a matter of degree. Of course, that's what makes or breaks a country, how much violent crime that takes place there. Canada is a great place to live according to all statistics, and if you're living in the safest part of it, then you must be pretty well off. Norway is an incredibly safe place to live too, all things considered, it's always on the UN's top 10 countries to live in, alongside Canada and the other usual suspects. In stark opposition to you, though, I live in the least safe part of Norway, the capital. I might visit Canada at some point, some hypothetical instance in the future where I can actually afford to go on vacations. :P

    Yeah, that's completely different, then you're just having some fun after you've done the deed. That can be entertaining, and like you say, extend the experience.

    Alright, I figured there would be translation projects, as I've heard of a couple, but that there is such a wide selection available sounds great. I remember you telling me about that game briefly, it did sound intriguing and original.

    Ah, yes. I suppose I was overconfident; there's no way he would offer up that many arcade cabinets for a mere teleportation device.'

    I remember one particular line that still makes me chuckle/despair particularly. I don't recall which game it was from, but Tails said "What did you do to Sonic? I'll never forgive you." With absolutely no inflection whatsoever. He just recited it like he was checking off a list of names. I could hardly believe my ears.

    I know what you mean. When you get used to peace and quiet, it hits you real hard when something terrible breaks the mold all of a sudden. It's good that at least people really care, and that she's remembered by many. I can imagine there are a lot of nice places like that in Canada, which I think is quite similar to my native country in many ways. Except Canada is huuuuge.

    That's so sad when people have to do that. I absolutely hate using walkthroughs; it takes away so much of the sense of accomplishment and immersion from the game. I only use them if I'm stuck on the same thing for literally hours and can't make progress, and even then I feel like I've suffered a personal loss. In a game like this it would literally remove any point of playing it, as puzzle solving *is* the game.

    Ah, alright. That's not too shabby. Are visual novels typically available in English, or is there only a small selection?
