This is teh stupidest song ever. it totally dosent fit. stupid jeckely and hyde!

Secret of Mana had a fun (yet buggy and abusable) multiplayer co-op, which was really really fun! I love that game, the sequels (if you count the PSX game) also has the same two player goodness, yet the game engines were different in a way that made them not as fun.

let me also remind you about the multiplayer options in Final Fantasy Games starting with number 4. The nice thing about 4 is that both controllers worked the same as the first player controller. That meant that either player could walk around, scroll text windows, buy things, or imput actions for any character. This was good because a two people could play and if one player was faltering the other player could step in and do things for them. This also eliminated the problems of the later games where you were stuck with particular characters, as well as the games with three characters giving an unequal playing something something, you get the idea.
The next couple of games had the option to set certain characters to each controllers. that was neat, because the "character is ready" tone was different for each player.
blah blah blah, I'm sure you all knew that already.

on the other end of the spectrum, the dramatic battle mode in both Street Fighter Alpha and Street Alpha 3 allowed two people to play cooperativly against one opponent. (example: player 1 controlls ken, and player 2 controlls Ryu, and they both do damage only to M. Bison, who is controlled by the computer.) I really dont know why they havent come out with a game exclusivly capitolizing on that. I think it should be Dan's game... Or a servebot game.

and now you know what i think. HUzzaah!

Secret of mana was only worth it when used in multiplayer

I just bought a Dreamcast! I need guidance as to what games I should play, etc. How do I burn games? You must teach me! I left a message for you on my journal. I tried contacting you last night.

awesome! I sugest going to capcom.com right now, cause all their dreamcast games are like $20, and i think they even have like 3 for $40 deals. personally I really like Street Fighter III third strike (as opposed to Street Fighter III double impact) Cannon Spike is a fun contra-esq game with 2 player cooperative fun.
Another really good (or so i hear) game is shenmu, which is some role playing game, but set in contempory time with pepsi brand names and stuff. it's supposed to be really good.

as for burning games, i myself dont really know the best way to do that. I do know that Burning nero is supposed to be a good DC burning program. The problem with burning DC games is that you need to find games with cracks inside of them to get past the anti-burning protection. if you just try and copy a game normally, you'll end up with a cd containing a 2meg dummy file. I'll have to ask my friends. but most Dreamcast games are pretty cheap now, so that part's nice.

oh, and try to get tony hawk 2. it's really fun.

I went to Capcom.com and the games didn't excite me much. The ones you and I like were not listed. I had no ida there was such a thing as Street Fighter III.

What do you think of these games?
-soul caliber
-crazi taxi 1 and 2 (do they both suck?)
-marvel vs. capcom 2
-street fighter alpha 3
-dead or alive 2
-tony hawk 1 or 2 (is 2 really that much better?)

too much nerdystuff
tony hawk 2 really is alot better than the first one.

crazy taxi is fun, but only for the first hour at the most (and that's assuming you can entertain youself by picking up the black guy who says "I wan' som KFC!" everytime.)

Street Fighter Alpha 3 is probably one of the best 2d fighting games ever, and probably the best street fighter game of all of them. it has like 34 characters, every street fighter character that was in either any Street Fighter II or Street Fighter Alpha game. it's very fun.

soul calibur and DOA2 are both 3d fighting games, and visually they are really neat. they are alot less complex than the SF games, and you'll probably find yourself just mashing the buttons alot (especially DOA2). but if that's your thing go ahead, cause they're both pretty fun.

Marvel vs Capcom 2 is like button mashing street fighter. it's really cool if you're a capcom nerd and/or a marvel comics nerd, cause they have characters in that game i didn't know existed previously. It's 3 on 3 switching (like the tag mode in Neo Geo pocket, but with three people) and there's alot of replay value if you want to unlock all like 50 characters (you only start with about 25). It's fun, and more button mashy than Street fighter III or Street Fighter Alpha III.

as for tony hawk, it's a really fun/well made game, and I think you could appreciate it due to your actual experience skating. you can also make your own skater, and make them all short and fat! that's the best part by far!

so, that was my Video game exposee. If you're comming home for the holidays, I could get the hook up for the burned games. or I could try and send you the like 800 meg fi

Soul Calibur really does suck compared to Soul Edge. I mean the graphics are prettier and all, but the gameplay isn't nearly as fun. And yeah, as the latest commercials come out and admit, the DOA series is largely fueled by skimpy clothing.

And GTA3 has a Crazi Taxi mode built right into it!

it's far less intelectual, and the characters are all repetes of each other, which is really stupid because their unique fighting styles existed in the previous game, and they just completly threw them away.

also, an inexperienced played mashing buttons could defeat a good player trying to use stratgey, and that's stupid and annoying.

maybe i should just bring the original game to school some time so you can see first hand what i'm talking about.

Re: too much nerdystuff
I just got DOA2 and it fucking rocks! A lot of my friends came over and we've been playing it all night! Rock!

I think I'll get Tony Hawk next. Can you get me a burned copy of Street Fighter Alpha 3?
