REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

I can't remember if we have a thread like this already but I thought it'd be something interesting to share and talk about. What's for you, an epic or favourite moment in gaming? It could be your favourite gaming moment or just something super awesome, whether it's part of a storyline or something that may have happened to you in your single or multi player experience. What makes it so epic for you?

If your epic moment involves a game's storyline, don't forget to use spoiler tags and font colours.

For me, one of my most epic/favourite gaming moments, is predictably the finale of Mass Effect 2.

Possible spoilers:

"The suicide mission", what the entire storyline is leading up to, told to be a one way trip into enemy territory that requires absolutely everything Shepard and the Normandy crew have to possibly survive. I really dig how the entire game leads up to this point, and upon assaulting the Collector's base (depending on whether the Normandy and its crew survive the space battle before entering the base), you're then tasked to appoint certain team members to certain roles and positions to infiltrate the Collector's base. Picking the wrong squad member for the wrong job can result in dire consequences.

I think what really nails it for me is the soundtrack, this track in particular - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTsD2FjmLsw - around the 3:16 mark. When you're dashing through the dark corridors of the Collector base, mowing down enemy Collector's and facing off against Harbinger, to me it's a total "FUCK YEEEEAH!" kind of moment, especially when Harbinger attempts to taunt you, "I will tear you apart" etc.


So, what about you guys? Share with everyone your epic moments. Smile

The moment you enter Mexico for the first time in Red Dead Redemption sent chills up my spine. It was just so perfect.

I can't remember too well but is that the part when this song - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7IkvAb6THQY - plays as you're riding there on horseback?

If so... I agree. That was perfect.

Another one I liked was the final battle in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for the N64, Link versus Ganon.

I love the sequence when Ganondorf reveals himself from the wreckage of the castle and changes to his true form, Ganon, then effortlessly (if not recklessly) knocks the Master Sword right from Link's hand, sending it flying across the battleground. To me, the moment when the camera is behind Link looking up toward Ganon as he roars, was one of the greatest things I've ever seen on the N64.

Ah, I do like topics like these.

I say it everytime, but when Gray Fox fights against Metal Gear in Metal Gear Solid.

The twist moment in Bioshock.

That "Minor Turbulence" mission in GTA 5 where you hijack a plane by flying a crop duster into the back of it!

There's other stuff I'm sure - but I'm at work here.

Music has that effect on everyone I think. A well timed music like Far Away in RDR or this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWB8P4jbsAA played when you cracked open the colossus armor in Shadows of the Colossus it somehow makes what you're doing even more epic.

I know I say this in every thread, but just about every Ace Combat game ends on an amazing note.

Take 04, for example, which ends with you destroying a massive ICBM facility.

One I can think of is Persona 4, True Ending. When The Genesis kicks into the Reach Out to the Truth reprise, it's simply glorious.

Probably is a bit weird having a giant metal rod shoved into your throat. Have you guys played the original Command and Conquer? To me, the most epic moment in that game was winning the game as NOD. Most satisfying ending ever.

It maybe wasn't the best quest in shooter history but it was an epic moment after feeling underpowered and scared for the whole of the game.

I would definitely agree with this. plus, it changed the game by you becoming the thing that had been scaring you shitless all game.

I've probably said this somewhere on the forums before but this reminded me, Naked Snake versus The End in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. I love that fight, the epic sniper duel that takes place in a massive environment where camouflage, stealth and observation are the keys to victory. I believe this battle took me an hour to complete on my very first attempt.

And even so, there's other ways to defeat The End that you would totally not expect!

Also... I just listened to the latest GameRevolution Podcast and the music that plays at the very end sounds like something from a JRPG (possibly Final Fantasy but I could be wrong) but it reminded me of Secret of Mana but more importantly, the final boss fight in Secret of Mana - battling the Mana Beast on top of the flying Mana Fortress and restoring the Mana Sword to its full power to win the fight and save the world. Wow. I said Mana a lot.

They actually tell you right on the page what game the music is from. Star Fox 64, this week. I don't own the game, so I take their word for it.
