You could probably pick of the game for really cheap....though it would be kind of pointless now that the online servers were shut off (talking about Timesplitters: Future Perfect which IMO is the best in the series by far).....the multiplayer was the best part about it, I mean you could still play with bots but the bots are fucking stupid.....the campaign isn't too bad either though and the challenge an arcade modes are fun....so its still worth a purchase even without multiplayer.
Wait, the multiplayer's completely dead? Was there no local split-screen or something? That would be extremely weird, especially considering that only the Xbox had decent online of the three systems back in...whenever the hell the game was released.
I started reading this with the full intention of finishing it, but I genuinely fell asleep - studying all day has melted my circuitry. To prove it wasn't a slight on your blog, I will return here with an appropriate comment on your musings tomorrow.
Simple: I am not human.
No, it is not. Defend this:
SpongeBob is hilarious. The show doesn't give a fuck. It's good stuff.
@Hailinel said:That's not really the developer's fault. They made it pretty clear that the game is a reimagining. Even the press came around on that eventually. And the game is actually fun and and plays well, so to rag on the game due to an inconsequential label being placed on it is a little petty.But they didn't market GoldenEye as a remake.The gaming press did, and that's bad enough.
But I didn't, or at least I don't think I did. Hell, I'll quote myself.
So this game sucks ass and stains the perfect name of a Rare classic, right?Besides, I said that I liked the game. Sure, banker's aren't good villains and Half-Life 2 has made it impossible for me to play a console FPS ever again, but the stealth can be good and it knows how people want to shoot virtual people.
No. Stop thinking like that. If anything, I'm just telling you how incredibly different it is from that one game with the same name.
You could play as a robocop monkey. It was a lot like Perfect Dark (a Rare FPS I have played), I.E. the aiming was pretty touchy.
Then defend it. Defend that episode I posted a page ago. I don't see how it could be done.
I'm not sure how to interpret half that post. Robocop Monkey sounds like the type of quick cash-in bullshit you know you'd some obscure company would ship direct to DVD.
@Gamer_152: Then defend it. Defend that episode I posted a page ago. I don't see how it could be done.With all due respect Mr. Game_King I think that would waste both your time and mine. While I'd argue that some Spongebob episodes are definitely better than others, in general I think the cartoon and its characters have an amiable and unique quirkiness and charm, which is a view we don't seem to share, and I believe holding that view to begin with is almost fundamental for enjoying any Spongebob episode. This is just an area where we disagree.

I can and will argue you on those points:
- Amiable. Well, I think I destroyed that.
- Unique. Half the episodes are "SpongeBob and Squidward are at the Krusty Krab; Squidward hates his job, I hate SpongeBob, and Mr. Krabs hates spending money."
- Quirky. I feel I've seen quirkier, although I can't point out where. Maybe Cho Aniki?
- Charm. That's one of the worst things about the show. It tries to shove this cutesy charm down your throat at every turn, thinking that you're just gonna fucking love this cute little sponge. I don't. You need to do things to make me like him. Otherwise, he's annoying and completely unlikable as a character.
As I said though we're not going to agree on this and when it comes down to it we're not really the target audience for the cartoon anyway.
Kind and cheerful? Did you read paragraph 6? He burned a person's house down. That's not kind nor cheerful. At times, it goes beyond simply not understanding the world around him and ventures into criminal territory. He could probably kill a character and come out of it smiling. Also, the...screw it. I'll just end it there, because I listed a bunch of reasons to discredit you. However, on your "weird individuality" thing, I'll just point you in the direction of Regular Show, a cartoon that can pull off shit like this:
@QuistisTrepe: Again, I just used that as an excuse for a six paragraph diatribe ending in the darkest "fan" fic ever.I'm just fucking with you. You must really have the patience of a saint to sit through all of that. And I thought playing through Saga Frontier was torturous. Nice write up by the way, keep them coming.
It's not all that weird for people to like children's cartoon shows. After all, I openly love Adventure Time and Regular Show, and I wish that Robotomy was still on the air. However, I do agree with you that it's hard to understand how people actively enjoy this cartoon.
It being a cartoon doesn't really excuse it, though. That would be like saying that it's OK for a game like Fragile Dreams to have Duke Nukem levels of tits and blood, because, after all, it's just a video game.
Congratz, you've mastered the art of provocative titles.And it was also pretty damn accurate. Victories for me.
If you're taking that from my "tits and blood" comment, I was just using that as an example of a debasing stereotype used to resign one's self to mediocrity. Although, yea, I'm not really a fan of the fact that a kid's show has you rooting for a protagonist when the Death Note parody makes them far more likable than anything they're actually doing in the show right now.
The point I was trying to make was that "it's just a cartoon" is not a valid excuse. You have to give me reasons to like a character, and destroying the lives of everybody who doesn't like you is not a good way to get me to like a character. Actually, in something more complex, that could be a decent perspective from which to write a character, especially if the person writing it was aware that such a controlling personality is not something to be desired. However, since this is a piece of crap kid's show that died some time ago, that's not the case.
That's exactly what the damn sponge wants you to think, though. After all, if he comes off as cute and naïve, then it's harder to consider him a reckless sociopath. I direct you to my comment from earlier: the top dog one. Squidward finally becomes happy and enjoyable, and SpongeBob just loses his shit FOR NO REASON. He's not concerned with having meaningful friendships or the joy of others; he just wants everybody to worship his square sponge nuts.
Yeah I remember Spongebob being pretty awesome back in the day. I haven't watched it in years but I've heard people saying its not that good anymore. I do remember having this one Spongebob video game based on the movie for the PC. It was actually half good, cause it was like an adventure game with puzzles and item collecting and shit.
You know, I used to really like Spongebob back when I was the appropriate age. Of course, that was when the series was actually clever instead of ultimately retarded like it is now for most of the reasons that managed to read from that appropriate section. I thought that Death Note mashup was pretty funny, for what your pain is worth.
Eh, the thing is that original N64 Goldeneye doesn't hold up well at all. Of course they had to make it just like Call of Duty, that's all Activision knows how to do at this point in regards to First Person Shooters. It apparently turned out alright though, considering that I would almost guarantee that at this point people care more about the game than they do the movie.
I read this specifically for the page long diatribe on Spungebob. I must say, after reading the bit about Asian stereotypes, I will never look at the show the same way again. Still, "Atlantis Squarepantis" is the turning point in my mind where the series went from being fun to abysmal.
Really? That's the turning point? Even though most of the episodes I cited in that diatribe came before that piece of shit 30 minute special that somehow got some video games?
It doesn't? Again, I feel very tempted to go back to it to prove everybody wrong, but I can't. You'll barely understand why in my next blog. But still, I played it somewhat recently (within several months), and it was still awesome.
