    RE: What game(s) are you currently playing?

    I've been playing more Donkey Kong Country tonight. I had a good idea. "Since some of the difficult levels are giving me a hard time, why not rack up lives?" I found a perfect opportunity to do that on the first (I think) crystal level. There was a way to get a golden swordfish, a golden ostrich, and enough bananas for an extra life. I then killed myself, went back to the checkpoint, and repeated the process. Once I had three of each of them (golden swordfish/ostrich), I was taken to a bonus level, and for both bonus levels combined I could get close to getting fifteen lives. So I decided to keep doing this for a little over an hour as I thought an hour wasn't a big sacrifice for being able to get through the game more easily.

    Saved the game, came back to it not long after. It had reset to five lives. I was not happy. What the hell is the point in letting players getting ninety-nine lives (it can actually go over this even if it still says "99") when it's going to reset anyway? Nobody is going to complete DKC in one sitting. (Very few anyway.)

    RE: What game(s) are you currently playing?

    I'm breaking out Killzone 2. Replaying for the good times and mindless Hellghast killing. Looking forward to Killzone 3, the reviews are pretty food for the game.

    Back when I had my PSone I had Marvel vs. Capcom. The first one, the original was an awesome 2D game. Marvel vs. Capcom 3 looks epic. I hope the maps are still left as 2D instead of doing the Tekken thing with the maps.

    I pre-ordered Duke Nukem: Forever "Balls of Steel" edition

    RE: What game(s) are you currently playing?

    I am just currently finishing Left 4 Dead on the Xbox360, I just have one more achievement to go and I can expect to do that all over again on the PC. I'm also doing my second playthrough of Dead Space 2.

    I will probably pre-order Portal 2 within the next few days, both on the Xbox and PC, if I have enough to spare.

    That sounds like a triumph. I hope you make a note about it.

    I have to mention that this was the case in practically every single SNES game that even let you save, so it shouldn't have been a surprise really... Super Mario World, Super Mario All Stars (that's four games each with four save slots doing it within one cartridge right there), Yoshi's Island, Kirby Super Star...

    Given that you have infinite continues on games like this, I'd say it should be expected that the lives counter resets.

    Anyway, it's not like it was going to reset your progress for screwing up. Now if that was the case, I'd be REALLY pissed off with my SNES.

    Just to rub it in, Millstone Mayhem does this in a much better way (it's in Monkey Mines, the first temple-themed map - there is a trio of Krushas near the start). You will need both Kongs for this to work without actually losing a life. Select Diddy Kong, and lure that sum***** Krusha right back to the start. Then jump on the bastard while right next to the entrance and keep holding jump + left; you'll bounce back down and land on him repeatedly, and start scoring lives within seconds. Wait until you get bored, then move forward. You'll lose Diddy, but that's nothing compared to the lives gained.

    Currently on Chapter 9 in Dead Space 2...though I haven't picked it up in a while. I really should do that.

    RE: What game(s) are you currently playing?

    I was playing more Just Cause 2 tonight. It's an incredible game. I'm considering getting the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World game for 360, considering it's similar to Streets of Rage. A bit of Donkey Kong Country in bed soon, I think.
