    I beat Ninja Gaiden Black on hard difficulty. Ninja Gaiden II, I got to the last boss and had to completely start over because I didn't have enough health items. The second time I got there I beat it.

    Sigma is like a better version of Black(in my opinion.)

    NG is far more unfair with it's hardness. Demon's Souls simply isn't forgiving to mistakes. Once you know how to play, you'll hardly die at times when it isn't because you fucked up.

    I think that Ninja Gaiden requires more skill/reflexes. But Demon's Souls is harder. In DS, you can get one-shotted in the beginning(meaning, you get hit once and you're dead.)

    Over all, I think DS is harder.

    That belongs in the treasure thread methinks. I'll go look at Target.

    Does anyone else think we should start letting each other borrow games? Like a GR exclusive Goozex?

    Mount and Blade: Warband for the PC was pretty good and it was kind of underrated. Probably because it looked like a poor man's Oblivion. Like a *really* poor man's Oblivion.

    Infinite Space for the DS was ambitious. JRPG space faring game where you customize the layout of your battleships with Tetris blocks... yeah, that's not getting a sequel anytime soon.

    I almost posted a GR Gameshare thread last week. but that's a big step in this relationship with the baby coming and all.

    That's a sweet idea. I already sent Orange Box to Lethean once.

    Don't have that, but I have Pocket Fighter, which is equally cute. SD SF MF!

    7.99 at GameStop for Endwar. You should be able to find it cheaper. I think we only paid more than $10 once when we bought it. Give it time, give it a fair shake.

    Well, considering you probably weren't far into it, let me just explain one thing.

    The story is amazing when you see the whole thing. That said, here's how to see the whole story: (spoilered, though it's mostly spoiler free. Mostly.)
    Beat the game, but before you do so read all the files you have. This gives you the basics and the first real parts.
    Start NG+. It starts you halfway through and tells you a shitload more. Beat it to get the second ending.
    Guess what? Neither of those are the true endings. Beat the game again, this time with all weapons. This gives you the choice between endings C and D. C is absolutely amazing, and D is one of the most powerful endings I've seen in a while. C, of course, has to be done first.
    Then read a translated book that'll explain the entire rest of the story to you.
    THEN you'll understand it all. Sort of.

    YES!


    I also still play Freelancer and Rise of Nations. Two solid games before Microsoft stopped making good games.

    Eh it's only 100 points on Goozex and I have 3,000. I'll just leave it in my active queue there and I'll probably get it randomly in the next few months.

    Yeah, Freelancer's pretty fun. I remembered spending a couple weeks at a friend's house exploring the galaxy and rage when we get killed by Outcasts (damn cruise disruptors). Too bad they scraped the sequel.

    X3: Reunion and X3: Terran Conflict are solid Elite-type space games but I can see why people who over look these games. They're pretty much unplayable when they're released until the developer patches the games up and even release content patches for free.
