Here are the first two videos of what I hope to be an ongoing series of attempts at this game. The first was uploaded in the FNF recaps, and the second is a new one. There should be a third uploaded later this week, and perhaps more to follow. Keep in mind that I hardly played the game, so I'm not too great at it as evident in the videos.
The first attempt with Zoel, as previously posted. I just posted it here for those that missed it, and for everything to be in one place. It was a fun attempt, but that last bike scene was too crazy for us.
This attempt was with me and Lemon's friend, Samantha. Things went way better, and we actually made some progress. But things turned to shit once those god damned sniper showed up. I hate them so much. Still, it was super fun.
Expect more videos at some point. I hope to make this a weekly thing, at best, where I post up videos of attempts at some hard games or just some competitive stuff.
Feel free to make suggestions, if you have any. I'm always up for input, after all.
Dat Aigis Orgia mode domination. Tonight, we had a fair bit of fun with Anarchy Reigns, even managing to fill out both teams for Deathball. Then we had fun with long time Dtoid member Zoel, as he showed us how Persona 4 Arena is really played. Also, sorry for the delay in posting this, but I had a good reason, as you shall soon see.
Game 1: Anarchy Reigns
Deathball is a man's sport, and any words to the contrary are heresy. Lot's of death and tons of scoring marked this week's game. Salt was had, Nikolai psycho crushed quite a few fools. A great night was had by all.
Game 2: Persona 4 Arena
For those new to the community, and are not sure who this person is, Zoel has been a long time member of Destructoid with a huge fetish for the Ys series and is freakishly good at fighting games. Much owning commenced, and we found out just how noobish we really were. To my credit, I did KO him once, which I am proud about.
Let's Fail at Hard Corps Uprising
This was an undertaking by me, Zoel, Lemon and his friend Samantha. Hard Corps Uprising is a game by Konami and is very reminiscent of Metal Slug(for good reason). I came in practically blind, so I have little idea what I was doing. We recorded 3 videos, the last 2 which will be released this week, where we attempted to make our way through this ball buster of a game. Obviously, the game had other ideas. So, sit back and enjoy what can only be described as an extended out takes reel.
The voices are a fair bit louder than the game, as I did not have a consistent volume throughout the playthrough, so forgive me for that. Also, Lemon was sick, so please try not to get too annoyed at his coughing(which he did his best to manage, mind you).
Another Friday has passed, so here's a recap of what went on in the PS3 FNF. Not too many people showed up this time, though......
Anarchy Reigns was short but sweet. Just messed around with some deathmatch gameplay types. Deathball will hopefully return next time. Not much voice chat went on, so you won't hear anything in the videos, really.
Just three players for Persona 4 Arena, so a lot of rematches. Teddy is still kind of nooby, I will admit. Still trying to learn some actual combos. Had some fun games with Codedor and Cad. And, despite my use of Teddy, Shadow Labrys is actually my main......
Well, that's all for this week. Hopefully, next week is even better.
Another Friday has passed, so here's a recap of what went on in the PS3 FNF(at least the parts I took part in).
Game 1: Anarchy Reigns
We had a nice few games of Deathball, as you can see. Turns out that Durga's AI is way too good at the game. 1st match was a wash for my team, but we won the second. Last match was close, but we lost in the end. Such a fun game, so come by next Friday to join in the fun. The more the merrier.
Game 2: Persona 4 Arena
Kanji is pretty beast when you don't really know how to dodge his grabs. But you know what's more beast? Teddy's item spam, that's what. As you see, poor Kanji has a bear of a time against him. Get it? BEAR of a time! I'm hilarious. That said, he did get the most wins, but that's not Teddy's fault.
The FNF was good and the salt was thick. Perhaps we can get more people into this next time.
So, what to look forward to next time? Well, I might cover the Nintendo FNF next week, but that really depends on a few outside factors. Also going to host Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 next week and hope to get some people in that, as it is quite fun despite being a Naruto game. I'll still host Anarchy Reigns and P4A, unless you guys have better ideas?
Still can't join the shooters and the other games due to not owning them and not being able to afford them. I'll try to fix that in the coming weeks, but I can't make guarantees. I really want more to feature other genres of games on here.
This is sort of a small thing I'm planning to do for the foreseeable future, where I post recordings of some of the FNF games I took part in, to show those who missed out just how much fun it is to be a part of the activities. It was sort of spur of the moment this time, so I only got two of the games recorded, out of the many that were going on. Also, no voice chat was recorded because we did not have enough time to set up Skype.
Game 1: Anarchy Reigns
Not much went on here, but the second match was pretty crazy. The game lagged like crazy, and the AI were apparently not in the mood to do anything else but lie in the dirt with their face down. it was quite hilarious to see them planted on the ground, with no force on earth being able to move them. Match ended lagging so bad that I had exit to main menu because it would not end. Game of the year, everyone!
Despite the bugs, which are admittedly few, the game is a riot. Maybe next Friday we'll get some Deathball done. Didn't get enough people this time.
Game 2: Persona 4 Arena
This was a spur of the moment arrangement, but man was it fun. Two hours of fun, though there were only three of us. We just messed around, as we were all too rusty to be any good. Expect a lot of dickishness and spam in the vid, but it was all in good fun.
Probably going to host P4: Arena next Friday. So much fun with friends, and that netcode is a real champ.
That's all for this Friday. Next time will feature more games and better videos. Perhaps with voice chat next time. Look forward to it.
Dtoiders featured in this week's FNF: Ckarasu(me), Hyper Lemon Buster Cannon(cbizzle), Cadtalfryn, and Epic-KxDtoid(Uncanny Silk). Guest starring:Cloud_Envy(friend of Hyper Lemon).
Note: Due to my lack of a 360, as well as a lack of means to record on the PC(efficiently), I cannot take part in those FNFs. As much as I would like to post tons of awesome videos of all the fun we have, I just cannot. I think it would be pretty awesome if some people picked those up, though.
What? Another contest from me? The last one didn't go so well, I admit, but I aim to more than make up for it with this one. So, what's the deal?
Well, it's pretty simple. Just show up for this week's WiiU FNF. I'll be hosting Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing Transformed and hoping to get some people to play. Here's the specifics:
Nintendo ID: Ckarasu (add me through miiverse)
Game: Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed
Time: 8PM Eastern/5PM Pacific
If we get enough people to actually get a race going, then there will be prizes up for grabs.
If we get 5-6 players, first place will get a mystery Wii game(a good one). I'll give a small hint: The Preorder bonus for the game was a large, fold out art screen.
But, if we get 10 or more players, then things get hype. The prizes up for grabs become a bit more epic, with first place getting the first pick of one of these items:
Mystery Wii Game
Wait, is that freaking Pandora's Tower you see there? Why, yes it is. The game will be sent on release to the person who chooses it as their prize, so you may need to be patient if you decide you want it(March 26th release date, after all).
Second place gets the second pick, and third gets what is left. Pretty simple, no?
So, how will I determine places? Well, I'll keep track of it through points. 1st place gets 10 points for that race, 2nd gets 8, and third gets 6. You get the idea. All places below third go as low as 4 points, as to prevent anyone falling too far behind as to not be viable(unless you keep getting in those last places). In the event of a tie, the winners will be decided through a battle race.
There are some ground rules to follow for races:
1. No rolling exploit. You know you are and, more importantly, I know what what it is. While it's not a game breaker, per se, I still don't want to see anyone pulling it in a race.
2. No bumping. Due to how latency works in the game, bumping into someone can send them flying out of control, and that's not cool. This only really happens due to poor connection speed, but I still do not want to see people doing it on purpose. Accidents happen, I get it, but do not make repeat mistakes. This is kind of tentative, as it can be redacted if connections are good enough. Might just do a test run.
3. You drop from a race, you drop from the contest. If you had a connection error, tell me so and you will get the default 4 points. But, if it happens again, then I may suspect something. Test your connection and make sure it's not unreliable. Poor sportsmanship sucks.
4. We will be playing the standard racing mode. No frills or anything like that.
I will take part in the races, but I will not count towards placings. So, if I get first, then second place counts as first place.
This offer stands until the third FNF from this post(places and scores will carry over for subsequent FNFs), so you guys have plenty of time. If only one week takes off, and the attendance drops significantly for the next FNF, then the contest will conclude.
