The Top 10 Most Difficult Games List!

100°
354w ago - Below is a list compiling the Top 10 Most Difficult Games I found on the Internet, althouh I don't completely agree with the list personally, it's still a good article. Anyway, on the the show...

10) Alien Hominid HD

What began as a tough flash game became a legitimate phenomenon on several consoles, staying very difficult throughout.

9) Ikaruga by TREASURE Co., Ltd.

In a nod to classic top-down shooters, Ikaruga brings in all of the elements that has made the genre popular, including the steep difficulty.

8) R-Type by Hudson

The original shooter in the beloved franchise, the first R-Type is extremely difficult for all but the most hardcore fans.

7) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by Nintendo

The first game that helped make the turtles a household game, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is tough from the get-go, with overly precise jumping puzzles and tons of enemies.

6) Ninja Gaiden II: The Dark Sword of Chaos by Tecmo

The sequel to the NES smash hit is also one of the toughest of the bunch, which is a feat considering how they're all nearly impossible.

5) Shinobi by SEGA

SEGA's ninja franchise stormed the PS2 with a fury when Shinobi launched, easily one of the hardest...
 

Twenty-five Things Every Gamer Should Do Before They Die

354w ago - Twenty-five Things Every Gamer Should Do Before They Die:

1. Beat Portal
Finishing Valve's mind-bending strategy game is necessary for two reasons. 1. It's more compelling to find out on your own that the cake is, in fact, a lie. 2. "Still Alive" rocks.

2. Buy a dedicated MAME cabinet -- or build your own.
There's a guilty pleasure in owning your own arcade unit, so why not treat yourself to a MAME arcade cabinet? You get bonus points if you build your own, creating the ultimate Bubble Bobble machine, complete with dedicated Bub and Bob artwork.

3. Get into a press conference
Even if you're not a member of the video game industry, you owe it to yourself to try to get into some kind of press conference. It's an experience, and if you're lucky, you learn something amazing before the rest of the world does -- like the Gears of War 2 announcement at GDC.

4. Visit an arcade in Japan
You NEED to see Japan arcades. Some are several floors tall, loaded with Street Fighter and Tekken machines. If you ever make it to the Land of the Rising Sun, wander around Lost In Translation-style and stop into one of these places. You'll be glad you did, even if you drop a few hundred yen in the process.

5. Dress up like a video game character and walk around in public

Top 25 PlayStation 2 Games of All Time

359w ago - Here is the rundown:

25. Contra: Shattered Soldier (Konami)
It's time to grit your teeth, cock your weapon and show the world what you're made of. Contra: Shattered Soldier is the meatiest Contra game to date, only because it's the most difficult one ever made. That's just fine by us, though. Along with the challenge, you'll also find Shattered Soldier's gritty graphics and rock soundtrack par for the course.

24. Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil (Namco Bandai)
Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil is everything we hoped a sequel would be and so much more. The revamped cel-shaded visual style, along with the wondrous soundtrack and the classic 2-D gameplay, make it a game worth revisiting. It's a shame we won't see Klonoa 3 on the PS3 anytime soon.

23. Resident Evil 4 (Capcom)
Resident Evil 4 rocks on GameCube, but the PS2 received a solid port. Along with improved visuals and gameplay, RE4 on the PS2 also features several sub-missions featuring the strikingly beautiful Ada Wong.

22. Odin Sphere (Atlus)
Atlus' 2-D RPG Odin Sphere makes the list for being unlike anything we'd seen. The side-scrolling fighting style is perfectly balanced, and the hand-drawn visuals look exquisite.

21. Shadow of the Colossus (SCEA)
The ICO Team wanted to prove it wasn't a one trick...
 

List of 'Known Issues' with Xbox Originals

50°
376w ago - Being able to download games that were released just a few years ago and play them straight from your 360's hard drive sounds like a great feature. However, being that the games will run under software emulation, there's going to be a few issues present, as follows:

There are some known issues with Xbox Originals. With all game titles, publisher logos at the start of a game can be choppy on first play when caching. Also, any additional content within a game (such as a demo or trailer) is not supported by Xbox Originals titles and selecting those options may result in crashing the game (requiring a restart of the console).

There are also some issues unique to specific game titles, as follows:

Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge: There is some minor flickering at the top of the screen that happens very rarely. The "Press A to Continue" message is missing when the host player leaves a multiplayer game. Additional content within the game (such as demos & trailers) are not supported and selecting those options may result in crashing the game (requiring a restart of the console)

Fable: There are some random bursts of audio static and some minor texture issues and a short hang up when removing tattoos. Additional content within the game (such as demos & trailers) are not supported...
