I liked this game way more than anyone probably ever should.

YES! I came in here to say this. So glad someone else mentioned it. Quite possibly the funnest time I've had with actually controlling an on screen character. That boosting.

I'm almost done Last Mission but I saw there was a trophy I can get around the area where I am. I'm on floor 57 right now and apparently if I keep using Find Secret Room folios until I get a certain room, save, and then repeat two more times I can get the trophy (Tonberry Treasure). Sounds pretty easy. The only thing is, Last Mission doesn't even seem like it exists on the internet. There are no guides, no videos, nothing to help me figure out how to get this item. There is one video on Youtube but the guy somehow already had like 5 Find Secret Room folios when he got to floor 61, which is where I need to use the first one. Where is this item? Is it simply found or does any enemy drop it and on what floor can I find it?

I am currently using the Royal Bank of Canada for my Canadian funds and Volksbank for my German funds, but I am thinking about switching to the credit union when I get back to Canada.

Whats so important about changing to a credit union in Canada? I can understand the issue in the US, but Canada has completely different banking laws. For example, banks are split up into seperate consumer and investment banks. It is illegal for the investment bank to touch anything you placed in your chequing account. This seperation, combined with GIC's (guaranteed investment certificate) is why Canadians did not have a bad time during the banking crisis in 08'.

Edit: I use CIBC, and I like it because I do not have to pay any fees for things like interac, overdraft, or private bank machines (I get $10 credit, every month, towards private bank machines).

Haha, I'm actually not sure yet. I only really know the overarching idea of a credit union, and that's why I need to research more when I get back home. Although I do think the idea of a credit union sounds really good, I need to know more about them and how they differ from regular banks. I know a few friends with an account so I will ask them and do some research.

I didn't know that about canadian Banks, that's really interesting. I know that banking in the States sounds pretty different and it's another reason why I'm glad I don't live there, hehe. (no offense to the American duders! It's still a great country!)

An example of a shit game is something like Big Rigs, or like some Barbie shit meant for little girls (that Quick Look comes to mind), or ET, or Wand of Gamelon, or Kabuki Warriors, or Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor. These games all are shit.

Why?

Really? Because they are either broken or have no meaningful or set goals. Among so many other smaller factors individual to each game that you'd have to play; EG ET's visual mess and lack of purpose, Gamelon's completely lazy presentation in every aspect of the characters, cutscenes, animations, dialogue, etc, Big Rigs massive mechanical issues and lack of competition (that one is easy)... listing these is really stupid because, as believer said above me, it's pretty common knowledge.

Skyward Sword goes about things differently, and it's never broken. It just does things differently and that's where the issues come from. The backtracking being one huge issue that some people didn't like, but for me I didn't see it as anything major. Which comes back to it being based on peoples opinions, not solid fact.

What I'm trying to say is that it's not solid fact that the game is bad. Stuff like Big Rigs, ET, Kabuki, etc. They sold bad, were poorly received, very often broken games. There is a line. Then there is something like Deadly Premonition. Mechanically bad, but uses and specially focuses in other areas (like the story, characters, dialogue, etc) to make it a unique experience and not necessarily a totally bad game. So I guess sometimes there are things that blur the lines.

Skyward Sword is a functional, completable, but polarizing game. The others mentioned are either broken or have no meaningful or set goals.

Really.

These games all are shit. Skyward Sword is just a game in which many fans of the series didn't like how things were executed. That others praised these same things means that it's just a super fucking polarizing game, not a bad one. But, as I said, you're allowed to think it's bad because you didn't like it. That doesn't mean it is in reality though. It just is to you.

I just think it's so funny when people shit on Skyward Sword. It's my favorite Zelda game, though I do love practically all of them. It's just so funny. Skyward Sword is not shit - you can think so in your own opinion, sure you can hate it all you want. But it is objectively not a shit game. Some, like myself, find it an absolutely fascinating and beautiful adventure. We are probably the minority but it is still super funny to see people act so strongly about it.

Wow. That is... absolutely nuts. Other M is found easily in EB Games (Canadian Gamestop, but we also have Gamestop... dunno) for like 10 bucks.

But isn't Sin and Punishment 2 pretty rare? (EDIT: Nope. Amazon is selling new copies for $16 CAD. Bonkers.)
