Ok fellow Atlus nerds, especially of the Shin Megami Tensei variety, you probably have heard about their new HD game for the Xbox 360 and PS3, that takes place in the current Persona timeline. If not, here is the announcement...
So, I really like Double Fine. They are among my favorite developers out there, despite only having made two games, one an industry darling, and one a divisive love note. They are, however, headed by Tim Schafer, who just c...
I can't..... what else.... I mean.... geeze... this is like... you know?
Really, can I say anything that this trailer doesn't already yell?
I really wanna know, those of you who aren't interested in the movie, does this do anything for you? Because, this really honestly looks like it might become my favorite game of all time.
I must stress that part. Might. There has been no announcement to the fact that Sony is making an HD re-packaging of ICO and SotC ala God of War 1 and 2. But there certainly has been some murmurings to that effect.
So, director and gentleman Edgar Wright posed the challenge that if the Scott Pilgrim movie facebook page gained 100k fans he would release a new trailer for the movie. He posed this challenge around Wednesday or so last week...
Oh fuck you world. Fuck you. Things were going so well and you had to go and take Dennis Hopper from the world. Not cool, man. Not cool.
To this day, I believe Mr. Hopper to've been one of the greatest actors I had ever seen...
So yeah, lists.
Something about lists, about organizing one's believes and thoughts into an organized and recognizable fashion, is extremely therapeutic. At least for me it is. Generally, I'm not a very organized person; des...
So.... yeah. I was doing this countdown thing at one time for this game that came out a long time ago.
Suffice to say, it kinda fell through.
However! Those dark days end now! I have finally cleared up my schedule enough to...
If those wacky PC source scroungers are to be believed, it's quite possible that the next big addition to the Mass Effect 2 storyline might be a mission wherein Liara joins Shepard in a mission to complete her goal in takin...
So, when I posted the trailer for the Scott Pilgrim movie, there were some people who voiced their concerns over the incomprehensibility of the trailer, that all of the crazy zaniness that went on in the trailer did nothing...
My real name is Mark. But my name is also Mooks. It's short for Mookie. I want to be a writer, a director, a musician, a game designer, an actor, and a constantly awesome person. Most days I forget I'm a senior in college.
I have been gaming since I was a newborn, when my uncle put an unplugged NES controller in my hands. In some ways, I've never let go. From there I took the Nintendo/PC path down gaming lane. I had a Genesis, but the only games I had were Sonic games. My favorite game growing up was Earthbound.
I am obsessed with story in video games and am always looking for the next game that makes me laugh, cry, or think. Although I also love a good mindless shooter or puzzle game here and there.
On the topic of best stories in games, I believe these titles, in no particular order, showcase what I believe to be indicative of our medium moving forward as respectable artworks.
Mother (1 2 and 3)
Metal Gear Solid (particularly 2 and 3)
Anything touched by Tim Schafer
Shadow of the Colossus
More to come as I think of them.
But yeah, that's it for now. See ya around D-Toid.
