    I know everyone loves seeing all the girls talk about their games and the tech world but I prefer men talking to me about games and such. No offense but I'd rather my panel consist of the guys on g4 not women, unless they brought back Olivia Munn then I'd be game.

    @Jessica: SMB2 was one of my "hardest games" for the same reasons as you. I had a terrible time with Legend of Zelda 2: Link's Adventure as well.

    @Blair: Contra is a given, without the code there was just no beating that game although I absolutely loved it. I never had problems with Battletoads though maybe I was the right kind of obsessive with the right kind of masochist and it worked out right.

    I never felt let down about difficult games, I kept at it because it wasn't a funky interface that killed me, it was my fault for incorrectly hitting a button or not being coordinated enough to make it happen. Fuel for the fire and my completion-ist sense wouldn't let me fail..even at the tender age of 8.

    f this episode. i saw the panel and turned it off b4 another word was spoken. i have given blair a chance in taking over for adam, i have even watched every episode since adam left, but if you don't put an intellectual on the panel to replace adam then ppl like me will not continue to watch. on a side note i'm fairly sure chobot has not brain at all and in no way should she EVER be on feedback a news show. your station hired her as eye candy not b/c she has a brain, she does not, she shoud not be on a news show

    Jessica put it exactly the way I`ve been handling Blizzard and their upcoming games since wc3, just ignore them and try and dont get any hopes up, as if you do you`ll be dissapointed so many times before anything comes out.
    And anyone who knows blizzard and are fans, know they`ll delay a EVERY games they make to the endth degree

    Battletoads represent xD
    There's No-Death and Speed Runs of that game on YouTube :P
    Also, Battletoads has CoOp too, wasn't it known as the game to ruin friendships? xD

    I don't know if any of you guys in US have ever heard of PLOK for SNES but... that one, along Battletoads, were the two most difficult games I've ever played.
    About Resident Evil series I really liked 4 so... I guess that 6 is going to be as good as 4. Not only cause they have Leon Kennedy again but it seems darker and with more potential of getting fans closer to the series (well, the fifth one I've just never had the chance to play it but either it wasn't really appealing for me). I really think that this move of lauching 3 RE games in one year, speacilly this year, is such an headshot in the middle of Zombie boom. 2012 is so going to be the Zombie's year... I'm talking about theathers and TV of course. So, there will be plenty of buyers I think and the market won't necessarily be guided by the fanbase.

    I really like you 4 together... Seriously! More Feedback with you guys...
    Blair, Jessica, Nicole and Leah. Portuguese fan here

    Isn't it funny how every Battletoads game had the speeder bike level in some form? I would be surprised if RE6 is released this year. The announcement seemed too sudden and I expect it will get pushed back to early next year.

    One of the hardest games I played was Clocktower. I never made it past the first level where the Scissorman was chasing you around a building and you had to hide from him in various rooms until the game let you leave the building. You had no way to fight back if you were cornered and it was usually game over if you were. It also scared the crap out of me.

    if any of you guys are interested in the lore of silent hill, you should check out The Real Silent Hill Exprience on youtube. It's a fan made walkthrough of the series. they even got some love from one of the team members of the first couple of games, they even explain the big booby nurses, at least in 2.

    I have to agree with Battletoads. But not the speeder level (Level 3), that stage was easy if you ask me. The harder stages occured later. Don't remember the stage, but just remember you had to navigate your character on a large handbike big wheel, through a labyrinth, while this big rolling ball was barreling down on you. The last stage of that game was pretty tough too.

    Oh man, that Battletoads level ... My brother and I used to play two-player, and I always effed up somewhere along the line; that led to some "spirited" conversations between the two of us ;)

    I do have some hazy memories of actually finishing that level, but - to be honest - it could just as easily be me creating a false memory to erase the pain of failure.

    Does anyone remember the cheat from Mega Man 2? If someone would hold the left directional button (or in my case, hold it with my toe), you could walk through all bottomless pits and jump extra high. I played that one for as long as my toe could hold up. Helped in increasing the dexterity of my feet as well.

    For me, the hardest game I've ever played was Driver 1 for the PS1. It took me over a year of on-again-off-again playing to finally beat it. That game was made so that the A.I. would intentionally mess you up if you were doing good! The same could be said for Driver 2, but it wasn't as bad as Driver 1. And Battletoads was ridiculously hard. I never did finish the whole game, but I did pass the hovercar level a few times.

    I have to disagree with you guys about Diablo III about how their reasons are pointless of delay. The whole revolution of the new Diablo is the fact that you don't get stuck with certain skill build tree because they allow you to pick any of them when you unlock them. As well as the rune system the completely evolves each of the skills into something different and those two things are the entire combat system. So if they don't believe they have got the revolutionary combat system they are going for than yes they should take the time to fix it. I don't just want another rehash of Diablo with better graphics. They aren't just putting out another game in the series with just minor updates. They are actually one of the few companies that are willing to take risk and innovate their games. We shouldn't be hassling them when they will be delivering us a product that will take Diablo to the next level. I love Valve. I think I'd rather be yanked around knowing they are actually making Half Life 3 than not knowing and being yanked around trying to find out if they actually are. I know they are making Diablo III and I honestly really want to play it but seriously if they don't think the game is ready than the game is definitely not ready. And I don't want to get my hands on it until they think we should have our hands on it.

    Are Leah and Nikole like 12? I'm only 30 but you guys make me feel so OLD. Your awesome though. I'm just being a bitter old guy.

    ahhhhh, Vagrant story by Square Soft for PS1, I played the same level for 10 hours because when you try to time things correctly you increase the risk level and when you increase your risk level you attack level goes down. So when you start you hits go from 100 hit points to like 2 hit points. And when you fighting a boss............I hate that game! F U Troll Boss!

    The original Metal Gear on NES. One death starts the game completely over, on top of already being nearly impossible.
