Video Game Baseball : The Japanese way

Now, I am quite aware that many of the D-Toid Readers are not very avid sports fans. Completely understandable. Why play a game of a sport you can just go outside and play, right? Most people will avoid this blog like the plague just because baseball is in the title, but i digress!

The Japanese take on baseball has always intereseted me, as there commitement is on the same level as professional players. The amount of skill within their leagues is quite comparable, if not stronger in many cases. Yet knowing those crafty Japanese, I always felt that they were holding some of their best stuff back.

After viewing this video i believe i finally have my conformation of their crafty hiding ways. Just give the video about 30 seconds, and you'll see the shinanigans they've been hiding from us. I believe this game was around the Playstation 1 era, around 1999.

Oh those wacky Japanese and their unusual playing styles. We would have had no chance against this calibur of skill. Thankfully they let us off easy.   read

It is here! Praise Autobot Jebus!


[embed]83426:10788[/embed]


Hell, even i forgot about this beast of a machine, but it seems it's finally here. And suprise, it's already out of stock! I know i would sell my left foot for a keyboard this good, but the problem is, it's worth about $1,589.99 , and i doubt my foot can even go for half that amount.

However...i do only need one hand to type

When winning free D-Toid stuff, Never do what this kid did.

firstly, i had no idea i had won, go me and my amazing spamming ability. Damn, I so studly. However, upon noticing my victory, and doing the complimentry victory lap around the room complete with cartwheels over winning my free patch of win, I noticed that someone had replied to the same e-mail, and CC'd it to every winner. Of course, when you reply to the e-mail, you were instructed to send your mailing information to Colette.

Unfortunatly for this kid, Colette has it, along with about 10 other people. What shall we do with it now? Naughty magazines? Old videogames that will haunt his memory? Pictures of me raping my snes? Please tell me what to do!


Also Yashoki, i knows twas a mistake, but it's still funny :P

Economy in trouble? Gametap to the Rescue!





Now, the news of the American economy in the dump shocked me. Since i live in the land of Canadia, where the rivers are made of beer, and the igloos are always stocked full of hockey gear, we usually don't get news of your Iraq war or yer housing cost problems. However, i do know videogames, and i do see a solution when i see one. Just listen to this ringing endorsement!

"offers investors an opportunity to participate in the growth of the video game market with comparatively less operational volatility than publishers and offers [an investment opportunity based] on the remarkable success of the Wii and DS platforms from Nintendo."

It sounds so good! But who could this remarkable savior be? Who can raise from the ashes the corrupt American economy and dollar


HURRAY FOR GAMESTOP!

1.6 million hits in 12 hours. Please Kill me

I like April Fools. Actually, I like it so much, that is my third damn CBlog today --> 12
so, don't get me wrong, this day kicks ass on so many levels, especially when we have the internet to mess around with even more. So far, "Fox-toid" is kick ass with Also Lawsuit and Stfualolz, but they don't even get this many hits in 1 month sometimes, let along 12 hours.

The question is, what single, and i mean single page on the internet can spark that much traffic in 1 day.

Click me for..God dammit, don't click me actually, I can't believe this shit


...



Click a link on the main page that's featured, and this..amazing..video comes up. And yes, this is 1 day traffic, even if it was posted 6 days ago, the linking from the main page to this video only started today. F***ing hell, your 1 year late you cocksuckers, and people are still "LOL" over this shit, just because youtube got up on their highhorse and made it a "prank"


Goddammit.   read

Dolphin Franchise Coming to Wii

Nintendo of America has just retained the rights to the popular franchise featuring the lovable Dolphin Ecco, first seen on the Sega Genesis and Sega Mega Drive. A press conference was held at Nintendo of Japan's press quarters, where CEO Satoru Iwata had this to say on the acquiring of this illustrious new IP



" Well, with the current success of Brawl, we could clearly understand that the gamer today is deeply urging to revert back to the roots of the golden era of gaming. With sequels of Zelda and Mario already released, i wanted to give another classic title of my era it's well deserved sequel"



The last time we had seen Ecco, was in his historic battle during World War II, where Ecco piloted the mark 23 SoundSonic, leading the fight against the Nazi Horde of Germany in Ecco:Fish Over Fire. When released on the Turbo Graphics-16, sales at that time topped record numbers, with Ecco:Fish Over Fire selling over 200,000 copies in just 2 days. Currently, the title is a rare to find, as a person know only over the internet at "Chad" has mysteriously aquired over 99 percent of the stock of the game, and has refused any offers of selling even a single copy of this title.





During the press release, we were also graced with a teaser image of the work in progress, which currently is under the working title of Ecco: Lazers of Fury. A release date as not been finalized, but estimates are up that we will see a release possibly during Holdiay 2008. You can see the teaser image below, and also view it at the new webpage up for the games future release, at www.DolphinEccoMaster.com





Current speculation is that this Ecco will be another Mashup of the FPS Genre with RTS and Puzzle game elements. As seen in the past, this pairing has proved quite effective in truly capturing it's audience, proving a rich and full enviroment for the player to effectively guide Ecco on his various challenges and missions assigned to him. Of course, with the new motion controls that will be added, moving Ecco will be smoother and faster then ever, with Sonic waves and Dolphin nose pushes coming at a flick of the wrist



Personally, I'm expecting nothing but a blockbuster title here from Nintendo. This franchise has nowhere to go but up, and i expect great things, even possibly a trilogy in the making.   read

Amazing! [Also, VG music Alternative Sources]





Sillyness?

Check


Amazingness?

..


First Post?

Check


I plan to simply use this blog space to throw down some odd and obsecure information, videos, songs, news that normally one wouldn't encounter on the front pages [Hence community blog Yay!]


VG Music Go!


Hell yeah. If your here on this site, you like some VG music, I don't give a damn where it's from tetris or MGS you like the music you whore. With the ever growing avenue of the tubes of internet, the room for remixed music has become more rampant. However, an even smaller niche has grown that I like to think of as "Creative Recreations"

What is a creative recreation, you say? Well, if you click Me You'll get to listen to guile's stage in SF2, recreated in glorius 16-bit on of all things, Mario Paint. Besides the simple amazingness of both the music and Mario paint should be enough to satisfy your fizzled brain, what you should consider is how fun and rewarding these sort of creations are to do. And, you don't even need to use any multimedia applications.

Simply pick up your axe, and go crazy on the beat. Classic Megaman 2 music, learn the tags and go at it. The best aspect of playing a song in this fashion, is the feeling of actually creating the notes yourself. If you haven't tried this, go right now to your local music store, and steal an intrument to play. The feeling of hitting those notes in time with the song feels so hot, that i usually find myself grabbing tissues when i'm done doing performances.And if your going to complain that you can't use the damn guitar like everyone else, sod off. Every damn instrument can do this well, it just takes a little thought and love.


[embed]78326:9747[/embed]


And don't give me any of that bull that you can't grab yourself an instrument, cause your the damn instrument in most cases. I'm sure that this has happened to everyone in some way or manor

[embed]78326:9748[/embed]

Of course, your not required to use a bunch of 20 drunk english men who might remind everyone in north america of on Mr Sterling. But being able to create music tunes of your favourite games whenever you feel like it using yourself as the instrument, is just full of good vibes.

So what should you take out of this post? Not much really, perhaps a small kindling of inspiration to try to make some fun music? Or at the very least, sing your ass off in the shower the next time you do decide to clean that gamer body, and let the neighbour's know how much you love snake eater.   read
