I remember playing that game. I used a body configuration like the one on the front of the original XBox cover, with spider legs, red paint, and cannons (recoil cannons?) on each hand, with shoulder-mounted machine guns. I'd regularly shoot down the dropships that gave supplies for cash too. Was definitely a fun game.

Fighting Metal Gear RAY in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Rules of Nature is still my favourite song in the entire game.


You just reminded me:

- Beating Senator Armstrong in Metal Gear Rising Revengeance.

He was an unforgiving bastard, and I died many times to him, but I still plan to go back and do it again, and again, and again. Why? Because it felt so fun fighting that nanomachined asshole, and he was as merciless as some older games I remember playing. And not in the nasty Ninja Gaiden 2 3-boss final sense.

They even got a TV and N64 set up down there I can still clearly remember watching them play DK64.

...Wait what?

Logistically, I don't even understand how this works, or why they'd do it.

More likely it was a pre-cut access panel in the closet for an unfinished crawlspace. Not uncommon to have outlets in such a place for lighting and power tools.

Still don't know why the hell you'd want to do that though.

My greatest gaming memory was playing Final Fantasy VII back in 97-99, God it was so beautiful back then, unfortunately I ruined the experience by playing it over and over again.

My greatest memory about it though was quite obviously Aeris death, I remember I had Cloud, Tifa, and Vincent in my party, it was 1:16 am I cried like a little sissy bitch for I don't know how long. I paused it during the Jenova battle cause I couldn't stop crying, I felt bad for so long, oh God the trauma. I attempted so many of those "secrets" to get her and Zack back, even tried to get that boxing goblin that was supposed to be able to join your team.

Thread Resurrection - Engage!

Never been much of a gamer (don't have the hand/eye coordination for it, I always want to look down at my fingers) but I have a few memories.

- In 2002 I bought a game cube strictly for the Godzilla - Destroy All Monsters game on it, barely used it, when I did I played some James Bond game most of the time, despite never making much progress.

- Had this sleep over at my church & we stayed up playing Goldeneye in one of the back rooms almost the whole night.

- Semi-More recently my younger cousin who was into gaming brought over a bunch of games, and I picked out the 2002 sequel game to John Carpenter's The Thing. He had not seen the film so we played together and I described elements of the film in detail & how it tied into the film, he seemed enthralled. Really great bonding moment with our 2 fandoms meeting.

- Arcade Games I had a bit more experience with, I always played Primal Rage when I went to the movie theaters as a child, Tekken (as true ogre or Yoshimitsu) at Cicis.
Later on, Ocean Master at Gatti Town (rip), loved the mythos of that one with the various seaside cryptids being represented, precisely up my alley.

Hmmm... Far as Gaming Memories go... Fond memories of the fighting games on the Wii. I loved loved loved Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Naruto Shippuden Clash of Ninja Revolution 3, and DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi 3. Unfortunately, I no longer have the Wii nor those games... Some of my favorite gaming experiences there.
(Despite the fact that they were Naruto and DBZ licensed games, they were VERY good. VERY.)

Other than that, my fondest memories are of the Pokemon games, and of Civilization IV and its mods. ^_^ I used to play Fall From Heaven 2 and Rhye's and Fall of Civilization all the time... That game had so many great mods for it. Pity Civ V isn't so malleable...

Well, the Crusades made those guys closer to Jesus... sounds like the same thing to me. As long as they played Goldeneye in the name of God.

While I am Christian & did go to church back then, we were not the hyper close minded types that thought fictional animated violence is sinful or would make us killers & such crap. And there was other games, racing games & such, Goldeneye is just the main one I recall us playing most.
And it may have been a boy scout get together not a church one, It just took place IN my church.
