    Hey, I was wondering about the game Dark Souls. I noticed something called 'Prepare to Die edition' on a game case. If I've never played the regular edition, would this 'prepare to die' thing seem impossible?

    Got it today, finally!!! Those Saline missle with Regs. version 1 are sick.

    Since I was able to do that, I'm going back to Armored Core 4 and trying to get the SS rank on there. I was surprised at how many I'd gotten an S on when I played before- I had some bad memories of some of those. Since I've started again, I've already took out some of the ones I thought were impossible involving the aerial fortresses- thank god for the Cerberus 'blade'.

    I was able to finish the SS rank of Armored Core 4 today. I was thinking about it, and it'd been 1 & 1/2 to 2 years since I played it. It's been bugging me for that long, and it took about a day & a half to take care of it.

    Let's see...
    - getting all S-ranks in Ouendan, Elite Beat Agents, and Ouendan 2 on all the songs in all the difficulties
    - getting all the emblems in Sonic Adventure 2 took me 100 hours: that took up a lot of my summer vacation
    - beating everything in F-Zero GX on the hardest difficulties
    - getting all the Pokemon in Red Version (I know that's not too impressive compared to future generations, but it was a big deal to me)

    It's the exact same game with the Artorias of the Abyss DLC, no change in difficulty. I highly recommend getting it too, it's one of my favourite games.

    One of my biggest triumph moments was in Final Fantasy X. The Braska boss fight was plain difficult. When I finally beat it(after about 50 tries, literally) I was just so happy. A great moment in gaming history for me.

    I'm with you on that one. Beat Gears of War 3 on Insane yesterday. Probably would have been a lot sooner, but I was playing other games.

    I had a really hard time beating the Elite 4 on Pokemon Black. I just kept going and going and going......why the heck did I have a harder time with this game version than all the others?

    I can't believe I forgot this, but pretty much the whole veteran campaign in Call of Duty: World at War. With the frequently infinitely respawning enemies and the always infnitely respawning enemy grenades, I died a ton. I remember the last 2 levels of each campaign (Russian & American) were particularly memorable. Throughout 'Blowtorch & Corkscrew' (remember the name because I equated it with torture) I had a terrible time advancing anywhere (like I couldn't get from one checkpoint to another without dying at least once). The final American level I remember for being brutal while advancing up that hill after you get out of the foxhole. The Russian level 'Heart of the Motherland' was ridiculous- I think it took me 4 hours to get through it. Advancing after taking out the first 2 guns was crazy. I could never kill the enemies fast enough, while avoiding grenades, to advance- I simply had to run for it and got lucky. For the last russian level... I guess I don't remember anything particularly horrible (although it was hard), but my head was fried after just beating the previous level.

    Alright cool, DLC included. You know, honestly, I don't know much about the game. I looked on the back and it said 'Prepare to Die', so I figured it might be a good challenge.

    I think it could be because the type weaknesses and strengths overlap so much. Some pokemon might be completely useless against some members (like the Scolipede I just used if it fought Marshal or Shauntal).

    The kind of games I play normally aren't so difficult that I would get too frustrated. However, there's a certain side-quest in Final Fantasy X that had me raging. The Chocobo racing against the birds and collecting them damn balloons. I was never able to get a time of 0:00:00. I'd completed every aspect of that game except for this, and it resulted in me not being able to obtain one of the celestial weapons. Not a big deal but it was extremely frustrating that I could never do it, and it's the only part of that game I couldn't complete.

    I'm bumping this, but whatever.

    Anyway, I've recently accomplished something that I've had in the back in head for 14-15 years. I first played Doom 2 about that long ago, and was afraid of Nightmare difficulty all that time. I didn't obsess over it during that time, it was kind of like 'man, I wish I could do that', but figured it would be impossible.

    I recently got Doom 2 on 360, and going though the achievements had me beating a level on Nightmare. Playing the first level felt like a joke (you can literally run through it in less then 10 seconds) so I tried the second. It didn't end up too well- the furthest I made it was maybe 3/4 of the way through, so I gave it up and moved on. As I wondered how anyone could do that, I looked up a speedrun on youtube, and watched a guy run through the game uninterupted (no deaths or saves) in less then 30min, and figured I surely could do this. I followed some of the strategies and tricks that player used and progressed well- I think I got beyond level 10 on my first day, more then ever thought I could. I kept going during the next few days, occasionally thinking I couldn't go further, but always finding a way to make it . Eventually I got to the final level. A few deaths, and then 3 well aimed rockets finally ended it. I exploded along with the final boss, but the game gave me the victory.

    So it's finally done, I made it through on Nightmare. I've thought about playing Doom 1 on Nightmare, but right now I am, quite frankly, sick of playing the game. Maybe I'll go for it in the future.
