Red Faction Action
Chris (cru) came over last night to play a little Red Faction deathmatch. I think I can sum up the brilliance that is Red Faction: If you shoot something made of concrete with a fusion rocket, it should blow the hell up. And it does. And it makes me happy. After 10 minutes of deathmatch, you average arena resembles an Israeli reception hall. If you're playing in the mines, you can blast custom hiding places right out of the rock walls.

David stopped by at like 9, and we hooked up all four controllers for a Gauntlet Dark Legacy melee. My Blue Knight, JMONEY, is now a level 48 Cavalier. That game is also very satisfying. It's the only four player cooperative game we have, and Julie (qtkat) really gets a kick out of it.

Has anyone out there played Dark Cloud? Is it good? I haven't really got into an RPG since NES's The Legend of Zelda. Is this one worth checking out?

Is the PS2 Gauntlet worth getting? I had Gauntlet for the DC and it was kind of disappointing. The graphics and sound were sub-par for the capabilities of the DC. If they improved on those for the PS2, though, I'd probably get it. :)

Yeah... it's rad. The graphics are good, and the gameplay is really in the spirit of the original arcade game. My main complaint is with the sound. The effects are generic, and the quality always seems muddled. The only good thing about the sound is that voice that booms "VALKYRIE IS ABOUT TO DIE" and other status reports.

If you get the game, you have to get the mulitap and four controllers.

Yea.. I really loved Gauntlet Dark Legacy.. it was a pretty easy game. My Blue Jester is a level 83 fool, and I have gotten all the ruinstones except the 13th. My familiar is a flying pig though.. I'm not sure what is up with that.

Next time you guys come down, don't forget your PS2 memory card. Sounds like you've been playing a lot more than we have.

Did your familiar start as a pig or change at some point? I got a silver bird at level 30.

Re: GLD

No.. my famlier started as a flying rat.. then changed to a flying pig at level 80. It's been really cool to watch my Jester change his appearance every ten levels. He doesn't have much strength but is quick as heck!!

Yea.. we'll bring up the memory card next time we come .. which will *not* be when Sacramento is in the 100's.. I promise!!!!

Hey man, it's air conditioned. No better way to beat the heat than to plant your ass on the couch and play video games.
