A song, the tune taken from Lynyrd Skynyrd's "The Ballad of Curtis Lowe"
Well I used to walk the aisles searching for the next big game
some simple flavor of the week that all was similar to play
but then one day i came upon...
Have you ever had to wait for the better part of a decade to play a game? I have. Back in my early days, I was the proud player of both a SNES and a Genesis. However, there was a problem. Whenever I played the Sega, I would g...
No, you're not reading that wrong. The first thing that came to my mind for this month's monthly musings was a football team. A team of sprites modeled after real people even. But if that's what you think, you've obviously ne...
Now, playing games for as long as I have, you're going to come across games of all genres. Smash Bros. didn't lead me to play my first RPG (Mario RPG), beat my first RPG (Pokemon), or even enjoy my first RPG or anything like...
I was at the local pizza place over the weekend, and after filling up on delicious jalapeno pepperoni, I headed back to the arcade room. I looked through the 5 machines there, and after messing around for a game or two, went ...
I am more or less getting prepared to take my second trek into the world Lunar by playing the first game in the series, Lunar: Silver Star (Yeah, I played Eternal Blue first, wanna fight about it?. The story begins here:
THats right ladies and gents, though most people have by now stopped checking, the Super Smash Bros Dojo has posted it's final update. It's more or less a collection of interesting factoids and kinda useful trivia. I say, a f...
Why in the hell do gamemakers decide it's a good idea to put in button mashing segments in their games? It wears down the controller faster, it tires your arm faster and it can get fusterating in large doses.
What game motiv...
Twas once a time, around April of twenty-ought-seven, when I was carefree. I had the world by the globes, and I wasn't about to let go anytime soon. At least, thats what I thought. Not yet having Xbox Live at the time, I popp...
So, It's september. I'm watching G4's midnight launch special for Halo 3, getting crazy excited for it. I fall asleep, and wake up in time to get to the mall at 9:30 and pick up my Legendary Edition. I go home and play for 18...
I mean, I've seen maybe one other Luigi whilst playing online, and I'm just wondering If I'm the only one to main Mr. Green. I may minor in Lucas and Donkey Kong, but seriously, I think Luigi is way underrated in the eyes of ...
And Smash Bros. Brawl will soon be here.
Now, I'm not saying that I won't be in line 9:00 PM on the 8th for the midnight launch, I most definitely will. Nor am I saying that I fear I won't like the game and will feel let dow...
About MPHtails One of us since 1:55 PM on 09.18.2007
WARNING: THIS PERSON HAS A TERRIBLE SENSE OF HUMOR, OFTEN TRYING TO BE FUNNY AND FAILING HARD, IS EASILY AMUSED, AND HAS A TENDANCY TO CLING TO OLD MEMES/JOKES. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.
This is basically my game collection (minus N64, SNES, Xbox 1, and Game Boy games):
See more of my puny, meager collection (in image sizes that can be read) at: http://s22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/MPHtails/My%20Collection/
Well, if your lazy and don't want to read the whole sidebar, I'll save you some time and tell you that all you need to know about me is in this image:
That aside, lets do some lists, because I enjoy lists.
Honorable Mentions:Zombies ate my Neighbors , Super Mario World
12.Sonic 3 & Knuckles
6.River City Ransom
5.Tecmo Super Bowl (NES)
4.Jet Grind Radio
2.NiGHTS into Dreams
I'm a really slow player. I rarely blast through games, regardless of genre or my own skill of it. Final Fantasy VII, for example, took me 8 years, 4 new files, 2 memory cards, and two copies to beat, even with a strategy guide.
Also, I cant frigging beat Chrono Trigger because my PS2 wont read the damn disc, same with Popful mail. This pisses me off.
UPDATE 4/24/08: I HAS CT FOR SNES. COMMENCING OWNAGE NOW.
UPDATE 5/3/08: I R WINRAR. Now to do the same with Popful Mail
As far as favorite bands go, I like more or less any song that catches my ear, regardless of genre or even quality (something thats also with every type of entertainment, I tend to enjoy lesser things). So, lets list, but with less numbers this time:
Smash mouth I reguard as my favorite band currently, but thats quite a changing area.
Red Hot Chilli Peppers
and some others that I forgot.
As far as individual songs go, some of the ones that I favor due to memories or just general enjoyability are:
Fallen Horses- Smash Mouth
Waste- Smash Mouth
Then the Morning Comes- Smash Mouth
Eye of the Tiger- Survivor
16 bit vs PS3- Prinz Pi
Geto Highlites- Coolio
Flagpole Sitta- Harvey Danger
Last Dinosaur- the pillows
Little Busters- the pillows
Scar Tissue- Red Hot Chilli Peppers
And of course, the rock prayer:
IN the name of the [Bohemian] Rhapsody, the Freebird, and the Holy Diver, May we all ascend the Stairway to Heaven.
Of course, theres more, but i just feel like stopping there.
Movies, well, theres Rocky III, IV and Balboa , Spaceballs, Snakes on a plane, Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller, the View Askewniverse movies and the like, but my all time favorite is BASEketball. SO many underrated one liners.
Television, lets see. Red vs Blue, House, WWE Raw (yes, imma rasslin guy yee haw), Chappelle's Show, like over nine thousand 80's and 90's toons, Saved by the Bell, Fresh Prince, Psyche, Full House (i was raised on it, so it dosen't count), Simpsons, KING OF THE HILL, Shin Chan, FLCL, and such, but as far as favorites go it's gotta be Mystery Science Theater 3000. Dont let anyone tell you different, Red Zone Cuba is the best episode, even if it's not Final Sacrifice with ZAP ROWSDOWER.
My Systems, let me show you them.
-Dreamcast (ITS STILL THINKING)
I like more under the radar.cult games like Earthbound, Popful Mail, Mr. Bones, and such, but usually due to their rarity they are a little pricy and thus I haven't played a truckload of them. I used to be a huge Sonic nut (even going so far as to read./collect the Archie Sonic comics even far after i stopped enjoying them), but thats since waned considerably. Though forever loyal to Sega in my heart (and, to a lesser extent, Nintendo), I can't survive on Shmups alone, and therefore branched myself out to accept all makes and models of vidja games and vidja game accessorries.
Well, if I think of anyting more, I'll be sure to add it so noone will ever read it.
