Note: Since I wrote this blog and IGN featured it on their front page (mega-excited!) I thought I would share it with the best online community of gamers...Destructoid!


Look gaming has tons of perks, I mean to start off videogames are fun, are they not? They are a new way to interact with friends and some of your best memories come from gaming with your bros. Unfortunately, gaming isn't all fun and games....literally. There are many moments where a gamer can just cringe, cry, or just go off the deep end because of certain outcomes, be it in game or real-life.

Let's take a look shall we?

Situation #1- Losing your memory card

Well back in the day, before memory was mainly built in the system (or for non-Nintendo gamers), we had an ancient device known as memory cards. Yes, these magical devices were used for the purpose of saving games (as well as copying and deleting) and were plugged in an area right above your controller. Without this card you'd just be constantly playing the same level unless you can beat an entire game in two hours. The problem with these memory cards were they were very small and well game cases didn't come built with memory card holders till around the PS2 days. Now, being a brother to two other brothers, we each had our own memory card because, let's face it, as a kid you don't want to share ANYTHING. These memory cards were small though and since you shared a system you couldn't leave the risk of leaving your memory card in the system, which in turn meant you had to put it somewhere. Kids don't have the best memory and aren't the cleanest of specimens, so what would happen? Well, you may have beaten 15 games on your PSX memory card...too bad it was all for naught when that memory card was nowhere to be found.

Situation #2-Corrupted save file

My personal favorite...or un-favorite? Corrupted save files have happened to me so often that I don't even have rage anymore...I just have a broken smile followed by tears. Corrupted saves can happen at anytime, by freak incident, from nothing, or a dumb mistake by you (most of the time). One of the most common games to experience this dreadful feeling is the Pokemon series. Saving your game and waking up the next day to turn on your Pokemon only to see that it says "Save File Corrupted, deleting....starting a new game" makes you panic and turn off your game, praying that when you restart your game, it will magically be there. Nope. Most of the time this only happens if you are dumb and turn off your game while saving, or you're just unlucky; be wary my readers it still happens to all games and systems now and then!

Situation #3-One hit before boss dies you die

You're doing it! You're doing it! THIS IS IT!....Game over. Have you ever felt so happy you're about to beat the boss, grinning like a fool, until suddenly you just mess up or can't land a hit and then die. I understand and then to top it off, sometimes you can't even come close to the boss for a good week...what's up with that?

Situation #4-Game turns off/out of battery

This is an old school problem, as well as a new one but not as much. See, before you battery would warn you by telling you less than 10% or 15% or flashing red, you basically had to remember to change your batteries, otherwise your toy/Gameboy is going out. Ever just playing in the middle of something like Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, and get halfway through a dungeon to only have your battery die? Yeah, well this is why saving all the time is a thing of gaming past [cough autosave] but still something you should heed.

Situation #5-You get very far, you die, and for some reason you can't reach the same point

Happens to me a lot and sometimes overlaps with #3. Ever play an RPG, run through a dungeon, complete a few sidequests, and then just for some reason you do something dumb, like not save or go to an area where monsters will wreck you, and just die? See, what makes this bad is most of the time you just get into the game you forget to do important things like....SAVE. When you finally die and realize you didn't do that, you try to remember everything you did EXACTLY like last time, which in turn makes you question yourself and leave you with a feeling like you forgot something. Now with a memory of how to play it, you try to follow this "plan" only to skip things because you can remember things out of order or forget important areas you need to visit, thus now leaving you stuck in the game.

Situation #6- Lag

A fan-favorite of everyone today, lag is unavoidable because sometimes it's the host, other times it is your fault. Don't you love lag when you start a match 5 and 0 in Halo and all of the sudden everyone is teleporting like they are Goku and you are shooting at someone, but then you just randomly die? Yeah, lag does that and always blame lag I mean connection works but you suck? Blame lag. Honestly though, lag is the worst when you have a great match and the game just drops you leaving a black screen until you are warped back to the title screen. A horrible version of Lag is your connection failing, or worse if you still use an Ethernet cable, someone unplugging it!

Situation #7-When a boss can one hit you and you do not know

This boss can't even touch me! I'm gonna beat this in no time.....what? That's how it feels to be one-hitted by a boss. You can be having a great match, maybe think you are leveled up past the recommended level, etc. but to be one-hit K.O.'ed by a boss is the worst feeling. You don't know whether to be angry or shocked...in fact you don't even know what to feel! These auto-deaths sometimes happen just so fast that you can't even register what or why.

Situation #8 Skip text, miss what to do, or worse REPEAT EVERYTHING SAID

"Ok...ok..I GET IT!" Proceeds to smash A button. Now this can go in either of two ways: A) You hear everything again and you repeat that process 4-5 times before you realize it or B) It'll come back and haunt you. An example of A would be The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. OoT's fan favorite: kaepora gaebora who likes to have the NO option first after he is done talking. For gamers who could not care more for hints or talking to this owl, he trolls you all with his technique to keep you at bay for a good 3 minutes of text.

For option B we can use kaepora gaebora again, as he and many other games like to speak with major hints in color coded texts. Listening to what other main characters have to say either give you: the place where to go next, what to do next, how to do something, or an important choice. As the game progresses to certain areas, you have to remember how to do certain commands and solve certain riddles, which answers are usually based off past encounters of the game. Not knowing or even listening to what was being said is a success for doom to make gamers rage quit.

Well, this is my list of worst feeling gamers can have; if you have any experiences of suggestions to add to the list feel free to throw them in the comments below!

Hello friends! We all know that TLMB/LegendofMikeandBill is my gaming channel I co-run with my best friend Billy. Today, we are here to announce we will be doing a charity stream on the 20th AKA TOMORROW! This stream will run all day starting at either 7pm or 8pm and we will be playing an assortment of games like we usually do.

The reason we are running this stream because are school St. Robert Bellarmine is going out of business. This school is basically our childhood. We met there and spent our whole lives from kindergarten all the way to 8th grade. In addition, the church is connected to the school and isn't doing that well itself. Billy and I use to dedicate our time for both the school and the church be it on the school's baseball team, being altar servers for the church, getting our Holy Sacraments there, graduating (obviously) and many other memories that we will never forget.

SRB will always be an important place for both of us, as well as many others in our neighborhood. Our siblings went to St. Robert's, we've met some of our lifelong friends there, and of course we grew up and became the people we are because of its community.

The stream will be ran on my Twitch channel: troyfullbuster starting tonight 8pm EST. Bob/GoM the master of charity streams on myIGN has decided to help us out! Which really means a lot to both us, because without Bob I actually would have no idea what I'm doing. Well, I wrote this blog as it was being updated, so hopefully it will be ready by then with the link to the donation site... I'm excited! I hope you can all join at sometime and it'd be great to see everyone, donate or not; just being there is a lot of support! It'd also be awesome if you can help spread the word at anytime!

Our goal is to hit $100 but I actually wrote $150 on the site because I like to aim a little higher. I don't expect much at all, I'd be glad even if we raise just $20.

Games-wise? Well, we are definitely playing Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart, and Mario Party. Halo, Marvel vs Capcom 2, and Donkey Kong 64 are also in the options of list. But, there could be more minigames involved, maybe Link's crossbow training, TMNT IV: Turtles in Time....WHATEVER! We got 24 hours! And of course, the most frequent special guest (or just almost regular now) Phil will be there!

Thank you all again! If you want to check out the do[url=http://www.gofundme.com/3zjrtg]nation site just look RIGHT HERE


Nintendo announced that they have no plans for a Wii U price drop and while many around the internet wonder why or how come they aren't doing "the 3DS price-drop strategy" it's a complicated reason that can be seen from two points. The first point is that many companies in fact sell systems at a negative before they even hit a gain and dropping the price of any item, be it a premium or not, is a big risk with low outcomes. If you make something for, say hypothetically. ten dollars wouldn't you at least want to sell it at a higher cost? In fact, the 3DS didn't sell for a profit till the end of 2012. showing in turn that a price cut right away doesn't do much for a company. This in turn leads me to my second point, what purpose would the price drop do for the Wii U right now?

The Wii U Dilemma

Nintendo's Wii U launched November 18th. 2012 meaning the system will be turning one during the Q4 rush; where we will see launches of the next Playstation and Xbox. Does this spell doom for the company known as the "Big N"? In a pessimistic view, it does. Even with the prepared launches for Donkey Kong Country Returns: Tropical Freeze, Super Mario 3D World, Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD, and current titles (or soon to be released) consisting of New Super Mario Bros. U w/ Super Luigi U, The Wonderful 101, Pikmin 3, and Game & Wario the Wii U doesn't seem to have much to offer besides a second screen. Games like Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I Don't Know, Rayman Legends and a select others may do well, sales-wise, on the Wii U but the later listed games are multiplatform games, so they will not cause consumers to go out to buy a Wii U just for them.

In fact the problem with Nintendo systems is that people: A- Want them for Nintendo First-party games (Mario, Zelda, DK, etc.) and/or B- they do not want to play 3rd-party games on them. Watch Dogs, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and Assassin's Creed IV are launching this November and I can tell you no one will buy those games for the Wii U. In fact, even with the Wii out those type of games never sold well on the Wii because people bought them on the alternative systems that are, not better but more suited towards playing them, the Xbox and Playstation.

Now this brings me to my main points. If you ask around (be it the internet or your local game store) many people "plan" on purchasing a Wii U later; meaning people still want Nintendo systems and their games. I know a few people holding out for Super Smash Bros Brawl Wii U others for Mario Kart 8 (Launch dates: 2014 and Spring 2014 respectively). The numbers don't lie, look as Nintendo has only sold 160,000 Wii U consoles WORLDWIDE...that's atrocious. While the company has put up a profit, thanks to the amazing console that is the 3DS, it doesn't solve the problem that people aren't buying Wii U's. Right now you can buy a Wii U in a useless Basic Bundle ($300) or an obvious better deal Deluxe Bundle ($350). For future references the PS4 will cost $400 while the Xbox One will cost $500. If you were to go to a store now with all three available what would you choose? Obviously, one of the non-Nintendo ones so you can play games you already want to (although already available on the Wii U) with your friends.

Why Not Price Drop?

A price drop solves everything doesn't it? Look at the 3DS....but in reality that's not the truth. In fact, the price drop with the 3DS was lucky because they were able to produce the 3DS for a cheaper cost, which in turn allowed them to take the risk by lowering the price (and adding an XL model helped as well). A price drop right now wouldn't do much for the Wii U; if both sets dropped $100 right now would you rush out the door to pick it up? The answer would still be no because the quality of the current library isn't enough to make any gamer want to buy it. RIGHT NOW isn't much...can a price drop be applicable in the future? Possibly, that depends on Nintendo's business strategy. Remember they sell Wii U's at a loss and they are eating some of that money can they possibly do it some more to increase sales?

Another possibility to look into is the marketing scheme of the Wii U...well STARTING a marketing scheme. The Wii was the system of the "casual" gamer, also known as elder people or just phone gamers. Maybe that hurt Nintendo getting labeled by that market or maybe the Wii U was a poor choice for a name. As you can assume, many of this casual crowd may not even know what a Wii U is. Sounds like an upgrade of a phone or a type of attachment for the Wii U.

In fact, I was at my local Gamestop last week and someone asked to buy the controller "with the screen" because she owned a Wii. The employee had to explain that the Wii U is a completely different system and the GamePad only works for it [as well as comes for it]. Was this funny? A bit, but also sad because Nintendo has decided to not market their Wii U and left many of the Wii users (that aren't Nintendo fans) out in the open. Name the last time you saw a Wii U commercial? I've only seen 3DS commercials, be it on TV or at the movies.

So if Nintendo is really worried about the Wii U maybe its time to change how they market it. Many will be begging for a price drop, myself included, others will wait it out. Some may ignore it and of course some already own it, sold on the Wii U's potential. I personally believe that the Big N will be fine come 2014 of next year when major titles like Super Mario 3D World and Mario Kart 8 are already out on the market, leaving gamers/consumers something to bite on when they purchase a Wii U. I can see a price drop happening some time next year right before the Q4 rush or even this year, because that is when it would be most effective. This reminds me of when the 3DS first launched and had NO GAMES (Super Street Fighter IV was the biggest title) so in turn Nintendo launched the Ambassador Program as a forgiveness. While there may be a little more games out than the original 3DS launch, its still not enticing enough to make someone throw down $350 + tax for a system they may play for a little bit. When you throw down a lot of money you want to enjoy the thing purchased, not seldom use it and think it was a waste money.

Whoo August 8th means my birthday which in turn means......I have no idea! I haven't wrote a Troy regular blog in a while so you guys can catch up on the latest on what's happening.

Edit: so far got jak and daxter hd collections and regular show season 1 and 2 on blu-ray courtesy of my 2 brothers!

Well since it's August that means I've obviously beaten a lot more games. Mainly during the summertime I like to replay old games or collect trophies I missed or was too lazy to get back then. The summer started good for myself, although I was working a lot in the beginning; things slowed up and I was able to play some games. A lot of games actually came out this summer, although I did not take advantage of it, but I was glad to see publishers finally release games before crowding up November to the max!

Two days ago Tales of Xillia launched and this Sunday Mario & Luigi Dream Team will be launching. To tell you the truth, I have two feelings towards Dream Team. The first is that I cannot wait, as Superstar Saga is one of my favorite games of all-time and I support the series. But the other is worry; considering Partners in Time was one of the worst games I've ever played and Bowser's Inside Story was alright...could have been a lot better. I feel people liked the game more only because PiT was so bad. In addition, the damn Gold-Fairy-Bom-omb is back and that worries me; whatever.

Of course I'm going to talk about my YouTube Channel: LegendofMikeandBill. TLMB is doing pretty good right now, a bit slow on the uploads lately though. We recently finished Luigi's Mansion GCN and we are at Wily's Castle in the new game Mega Man Unlimited. Predicting ahead we will be playing our first donated game in TimeShifters, followed by Star Fox 64, and possibly finishing Resident Evil: Revelations HD...maybe. We decided to expand our programming and started to do something call MMGM/Mega Mini-Game Mashup every Friday. On Friday's we upload games like Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros., etc to bring you all your chaotic needs into gaming!

Another thing is I currently started replaying Paper Mario 3/Super Paper Mario (Wii) and I don't know if it is because Sticker Star/Paper Mario 4 was so bad, but the game really isn't that bad. I enjoyed the story and vast levels the game had to offer on my first run and this replay only affirms my beliefs. I do hate the fact that sidekicks suck and well there is no turn-based RPG like Paper Mario is, but I can deal with it because the game is hilarious.

On the list of completions I was able to play [some reviews I'm still working on]

  -  Luigi's Mansion 2/Dark Moon
  - Disgaea 2 Dark Hero Days PSP
  - The Last of Us (platniumed!)
  - Ni No Kuni (platniumed!) [DRAFT]
   -3D Dot Game Heroes (platniumed...ironically I started the game 2 years ago yesterday lol) [DRAFT]
  -  Project X Zone 3DS [DRAFT]
  -  Do All 4 new Streetpass games count? lol

On the list of games I'm playing now/can't wait for either off the top of my head have to be:

  - Tales of Xillia (got my Limited Edition yesterday!)
   -Jak and Daxter HD Collection (my older brother got it for my birthday so I must rebeat all 3!)
  - Mario and Luigi Dream Team (SUNDAY!!)
  - Ducktales Remastered
  - Mickey's Castle of Illusion HD
  -  Phoenix Wright 5/Dual Desitines
  - Kingdom Hearts 1.5 ReMix
  - Disgaea D2
  - Rayman Legends PS3 (I wanted Wii U but I don't own one yet)
  - Pokemon X/Y (still iffy since black/white made me hate Pokemon but...)

There's definitely a whole bunch more that I am just not naming or just forgetting but these are definitely on my play list because I know I'm getting at least ALL of them lol.

Thank you everyone who wished me a happy birthday so far! And of course my wish is obviously all about my youtube channel lol.  Like TLMB on Facebook or Subscribe to our Youtube Channel: LegendofMikeandBill

Destructoid wants to know what's it like to play videogames with this guy. Well, to tell you the truth I have 2 modes:

The first mode I'm all about 100%'ing be a perfectionist who's into his work...well games. I play quietly, I need to beat all the games tell everyone I did, and of course go on to the next one. While there's not much there, everyone has a hardcore gamer inside of them who likes to win. I'm not too emotional and when I'm into a game I'm into it! It's not being a zombie, it's more like a trance of being so into the game that nothing else matters. Usually right after I am done playing a home console I will "go to bed "at say 1am...which means going to the Vita or 3DS for another 2 hours before I actually sleep.

The second mode is the fun I will destroy everyone mode..no one shall be spared mode. When I'm in this mode it's like everyone must lose but me, I'm throwing out all the punches! I love to compete and I love to play, be it laughing like a villain when I have certain traps set in games, or just stealing stars in Mario Party. It's just fun. I also am the guy who will have voice a little too loud, because games, when against other people, jump from level 1 to LEVEL 9001 (so Vegeta can indicate that it is over 9000). It's go big or go home anytime you play something in my household! (Wait...so we are already home)

In fact I don't even have to write how I am when it comes to games like Mario Party and Super Smash Bros, you can just check the adventures of a man who likes to yell right here! This entire channel trailer should sum up how I play games be it from serious FPS' to random computer games or even, the most important of them all...how I play mini-games and what they mean to me!

1:07 should explain it all

Everyone loves their 3DS and everyone loves StreetPass, it's one of the biggest and known features of the 3DS. To obtain any Streetpass you just need to be near someone who owns a 3DS and boom, you met their Mii who was added to something called a StreetPass Plaza. Streetpass is more than just meeting other Mii's, it has two distinct features; giving you special StreetPass items for 3DS games (like Super Mario 3D Land, where you would get Toad houses) or allow you to use the Mii you met to play the two games it had: Puzzle Swap and Find Mii. While enjoyable games, there is not much behind the two StreetPass games of Puzzle Swap and Find Mii 1 and 2. For Puzzle Swap, you would just gain a piece of a puzzle to add to your collection, while for Find Mii you would send out a Mii to a level to fight ghosts, although you had no real impact on the fights, just choosing magic or physical attack, the rest was automatic.

With Nintendo's latest update for the 3DS, four new games were introduced to the StreetPass world, each costing $4.99 (or get all 4 for $15). The games now available are: Mii Force, Flower Town, Warrior's Way, and Monster Manor.

The Games

Flower Town

Flower Town is a pretty simple game, in which you a new citizen to Flower Town and want to grow 20 breeds of Flowers to become a Garden Master. In the game, each StreetPass you get counts as a way to water your plant or harvest seeds from a plant. There is more than just watering your plants in Flower Town, although that is the main premise of the game. You can also design your garden, take on jobs in the town (usually about growing flowers), sell your plants or seeds, and when another Mii has Flower Town, you can check out their own personal garden. The game uses a currency format, so not everything is free, that is if you actually feel like customizing your pots and garden, otherwise if you don't care it is practically useless.

The setting and graphics of the town actually look very well done and they give you a peaceful-type vibe, whenever you play the game. All in all, there is not much in Flower Town besides waiting for the next StreetPass so you can water your plant or get a new seed. One problem I have come across a lot in Flower Town is trying to get "New Breeds" or Flowers rather than different colors. A new seed always displays the percentage of whether you will get the same flower, a new breed, or a different color and well...most of my percentages are always low for a new Flower and I only have four.

Warrior's Way

Warrior's Way is a rock-paper-scissors type game, where you take control of your own Mii and your army in order to take over the world (20 countries). Your beginning army consists of how many StreetPass tags you have and from then on it only increases. Ways of increasing your army go in three ways: Hiring Mercenaries (the Dogs/Cats), gaining a StreetPass from a Mii who doesn't have Warrior's Way, and a StreetPass to one who does. The difference between Mii's that don't have Warriors's Way compared to those who do is that they are not Monarchs from a distant land, so they don't lead any army. If they do have the game, you must face their army and beat them in order to gain their characters; if they don't own the game, they simply join your army with their StreetPass number. From there, you create one of three types of castles (shonen, medieval, or futuristic) which plays some type of role in your Warriors' Way game, like the ability to "spy" on the opposing countries army.

The fighting rock-paper-scissors style does keep the game in suspense, especially if you have less or an equal amount of soldiers compared to the other teams army and although the number of units are displayed for each unit (say 100 in rock), you do not know the order the computer launches them, making your choices actually guesses. As you would know, rock beats scissors, but that does not always guarantee victory. Winning the effective battle only halves the opposing teams army, so you have to make sure you have a suitable amount of soldiers in each section. The reason is because the game does allow you to auto-win some battles, by over-stocking one of the classes which then becomes indicated by a gold star above the icon. but this is really only obtainable if you have plenty of soldiers. With this, even if you did your 'Rock' team versus a 'Paper' team you would still win! On the flip-side it does indicate auto-losses as well, with an icon of a white flag on one of your icons, if you do not have enough soldiers to compete against any of the opposing teams' factions.

Monster's Manor

Monster's Manor is the new Find Mii, only better. This game is the closest to an RPG-Mii game we will get; it has inventory, weapon select, live-action fighting, RPG-level up system, currency, and of course treasures with random battles to boot. The game has you wandering into a mysterious castle/mansion after you get a letter from your assistant (since you are a detective in this game). She tells you all about the monsters and mystery going on in the manor and how there are multiple floors you need to travel to get to the top and solve the mystery.

Streetpasses work in the way of helping you progress on each floor. Floor progression is a Tetris-style puzzle builder where you get random parts (say a 4 block straight line) and you build a floor so you can travel around in. Colors that match create a bigger room, allowing you to find treasures with range from badges to new weapons. Connecting puzzle-floor pieces of people with different colors leads to mainly random encounters. The point of each floor is to find the stairs, so that you may move up in the tower.

Battling in Monster's Manor is live-action orientated. This means whatever weapon you carry (say a Laser Gun) is controlled by you, as well as defending against monsters' attacks. Weapons use batteries, so you can't rush all your attacks in 5 seconds, you must time them and let them recharge. There is also HP in the game, which cannot be recovered unless you use a potion or advance to the next floor. HP is increased as you find S-Capsules and/or moving up in the Manor.

Overall, this is one of the most addicting new StreetPass games out there and I recommend this game for a person who only wants to buy one of the StreetPass games.

Mii Force

Ever played Darius Twins or Gradius..or any 2D-scrolling spaceship game? Well, if you loved it then, then Mii Force is the game for you. Greatly influenced by them, you control your Mii Force Ship and travel to different planets to defeat evil space pirates. There are cannons, enemies from all angles, plant-based, water-based levels, and of course gems to be found in every part of the galaxy. Each planet has three levels, with bosses at the end of each level, each more difficult as you progress. Streetpass Mii's influence your game by giving you a power according to a Mii's color. Red Mii's have a flamethrower, Black Mii's shoot bombs etc. You can attach up to 10 Mii's one one ship, but only shoot 4 different powerups. The other Mii's would connect to your ship and level up each weapon (maximum level 3).

Mii Force is a very fun and addicting game with the most replay value of any StreetPass game. Each level has a Target Score for you to hit, a collect all hidden gems mission, and a don't get hit badge (if you have more than one Mii). You can play whatever level you want at any time and the best part is hidden gems carry over, so you don't have to always relook for them.


Flower Town: 7/10

Mii Force: 8/10

Warrior's Way: 8.2/10

Monster's Manor: 8.5/10

I believe all these new StreetPass games are amazing additions to, what already makes the 3DS addicting enough. From the addition of the new StreetPass Exchange Tickets (tickets that are won in the new StreetPass games for new hats), to just the overall fun that most (cough Flower Town) of the new games provide, I have to say its a must buy for EVERY 3DS owner.

My personal favorite has to be Monster's Manor, followed by Warrior's Way then Mii Force (although I love 2D-scrolling ship games this is missing something). A problem is Warrior's Way and Monster's Manor are a really slow progress, but its something you live with considering you don't always get StreetPasses!  So what are you waiting for? Go out and buy them!
