Just picked up a copy of Dirge of Cerberus. Anything I should know before I start playing?

Yeah.

*Do the training mode first to get used to the controls.

*Don't be afraid to start a stage over if necessary.

*And always make sure that you are in the 'Phoenix Down' state, just in case.

Other little tips:

*During a boss battle, a Limit Breaker is a good way of getting health if you're down to smell.

*Concentrate on getting EXP rather than Gil after each stage. Gil can be used to get the Ultima Weapon early, but EXP will save your life.

Hi Quatermass!

I finished Metal Gear Solid 3 Subsistence, and my rank is Crocodile. I like reptiles (iguanas, snakes, crocodiles, . . .), and I like my rank. But, just for curiosity, what does my rank mean?

I played on Normal mode, killed 108 humans, 3 or 4 continues, and 21 hours of play time.

I wanna play and beat MGS3 again, what other ranks could I get?

Your rank is dependent on how many people you have killed, shots fired (I think), how many alerts, continues, and lay time, not to mention difficulty level.

Now, unless you're masochistic, there should be only three ranks you should aim for:

*Tsuchinoko: Finish the game with a live Tsuchinoko in your backpack.

*Kerotan: Shoot all Kerotan frogs in the game.

*Chameleon: NO alerts

Those get you special items.

For more details:

Why do games like "Poonce of Persia" and lots of others always freaking cheat? I'd like to get hold of the people who wrote them and give them back some of the aggro they give to us people who suffer endless torture from playing games that won't give us an even break?

And I already know the argument some will say "oh, it wouldn't be fun if it wasn't challenging". Challenging is fine but not bloody impossible!

You ever play Devil May Cry 3?

No. Does it cheat even worse than those other games?

Lemme put it this way: at times, it can be worse than most 8-Bit games.

Having seen at first hand how frustrated The_Chosen_One gets when games repeatedly cheat, I think most of them must be 2 bit games!

:) I'm also firmly convinced that most of these game writers are sadists and Chosen One thinks most of them are jerks. The other night he said he wished he could insert one of the games into where the sun doesn't shine if he could only get his hands on the writer (this was the Buffy game which was cheating outrageously at the time).

Lemme put it this way, Devil May Cry, but TCO Will Cry. :lol:

Why doesn't he try a Final Fantasy or Metal Gear game?

I'm not sure. He likes Ratchet & Clank, Family Guy, Burnout and Buffy just to name a few but Buffy and Burnout 3 are well nigh impossible. I can't play any of those games but want to give Lumines a try.

I am planning to fight through Mt. Battle nonstop to get one of the Johto starters before I start a new game on XD. The Pokémon I want to use are from Pokémon Emerald and they got to level 100 using the gain 5000 EXP Gameshark code. If I use these Pokémon, will the Johto starter be considered legit or not?
