I really feel like people hate on Blood II, when it was released I was amazed by the realistic graphics especially with those chrome guns. The gameplay is a lot fun. Don't know why it was never any more popular. I really would put it up there with stuff like Doom and Duke Nukem fun wise at least.

It does not play well. There are a lot of problematic glitches, like the first boss being able to hit you through walls. Also, the setting changes massively between the two games, causing a disconnect. The expansion is better, at least in part because it feels more like a return to the original. That said, the underlying engine isn't one that I care for and was at its peak in Shogo.

I think that's BS. The earlier Zelda games borrowed some symbols from various religions, and not just Christianity. There's no reason to believe that they actually intended Christianity to be the religion in the Zelda universe. Short of a direct quote from Miyamoto himself, I don't believe otherwise.

Skull & Bones seems promising, I wish I was younger to drop time in it. The idea of roaming the seas as a pirate excites me. If it works as MMORP battling against other players and trading with them sounds even more exciting. Looks like Ubisoft will release the "Sea of Thieves" that people always wanted.

Sometimes when I face a tough enemy, I would upgrade and go back to beat the heck out of him and show him his place, then I realise there is no one there its just electricity displaying interactive colours on a screen...still feels good though.

I'm doing these sega and nintendo focused vgm poll/discussion threads (one year at a time) over at gamefaqs right now, and will cover sega and nintendo systems separately up until and including the 5th gen probably. Join us!

We're now moving into the 16-bit era for the Sega series:

(The SMS polls are still going on that system's board in case you missed them.)

Nintendo one is currently at 1987:
