V.I.P.E.R.S (another game idea)

This time, it's an XBLA title idea.
It stands for Violent Interpersonal Psychologically Experimental Rehabilitation Simulation.

Here's the plot. A psychologist has to deal with several prisoners, each with a specific mental condition. Instead of doing group therapy, like anyone else would, he decides to do something...different.

He drugs them, and hooks their brain stems up to a VR machine. There, they must DESTROY each others problems. With VIOLENCE.

That's the plot for the multi-player. In the single-player, you play as a single prisoner, trying to free everyone from the machine, battling exaggerated manifestations of each of their problems.

It would play like a mix between a 3-D Bomberman and Contra. The more you are hutt/killed, the more mentally stable you become, and vice versa. It would work like a fighting game meter system. The mission is to be the most "helpful", to say the least. Just kill everything that isn't you.

There would be Achievements like "Miracle Worker", "Mentally Unstable", and etc.

I haven't really thought about the graphics or art style yet, though. Maybe public-service-announcement-style music (remixed stock music?)

(In summary, it's violent group therapy.)   read

Gamestop sells NeoGAFer a demo disk

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=210745

Yet another case of "selling a customer the display copy" as a new game. But, this time, they REALLY screwed up.   read

Look at what I found at K-Mart!



Yes, it's a DVD! But not just any DVD; it's a Wii information DVD! For free!

I took one, and I'm gonna tell what's on it.


Here's the base menu.


"What is Wii?" is a solid explanation of the console, its' games, features, price point, and so on. It also has the trademark "weird stock actors" that are in all of the Wii commercials, promos, etc. However, they didn't mention the Classic Controller for some reason.




Wii Channels, obviously, goes through the different channels available on the Wii.





Wii Games/Nintendo DS Games is comprised of a few pages of game trailers. Pretty normal, except for some weird things.

1.)The "Link's Crossbow Training" trailer, instead of using Zelda music, uses generic techno.

2.)These people have the weirdest living rooms I have ever seen.





3.)The demographics in some of the videos are weird.


(kid on left looked half-asleep through the three times they showed him)

4.) Activision (apparently) couldn't afford to make a set for the kid actors to fake playing "Bee Movie Game", so, they used a green screen.



5.) Konami couldn't afford a set, never mind a green screen, nor enthusiastic actors.



They can, however, afford a CLONING MACHINE.



6.) Dancing With The Stars has a game.



7.) Konami trapped two Asian children in a void-like room and forced them to play Dewy's Adventure.



8.) Fishing Master has 30 types of bait.



9.) The Geometry Wars:Galaxies trailer has PARTICLE MAN AS BACKGROUND MUSIC



10.) What the hell are those things?



11.) Tomb Raider Anniversary Wii Edition is boring.



12.) Zack and Wiki makes people do this.



13.) There's a Professor Layton trailer.





Overall, I give it a 7. The production values are good, and it gets the job done. However, it pushes games like EA Playground and Flash Focus.   read

I have an idea for a video game.

It's a 3-D adventure game called "Wonderful".

It takes place in NYC in the 50's. You play as a detective named Lester. He wakes up one day, and goes to work as normal. However, no one in the office knows him or even recognizes him. He calls up his family, and they claim to not know him either. It's like you were never born.

You head back to your apartment, and before you are about to go into your room, you encounter a woman, presumably a new tenant. She tells you her name is Diana, and she has recently gotten a job singing in a bar/jazz hall. You tell her your situation, and she feels sorry for you. "I'm one less stranger" She decides to help you find out what's going on.

The gameplay would consist of traveling around the city, looking for any shred of your existence, and helping people with their problems along the way. Depending on who you help, you will develop different friends and enemies. Plus, various actions will affect your relationship with Diana. This will affect how the story progresses.

There will be multiple endings. You may or may not be happy with your old life, and might try to start fresh. Or not. It's all up to the player.

The graphics would be displayed in black-and-white/sepia tone, and the sound quality would be reminiscent of old records and films from the era. Various issues of the time would be present in the game's atmosphere. The soundtrack would be typical gloomy/uplifting blues/jazz fare.

Next-generation consoles would be best for "Wonderful". Maybe a future Microsoft product.   read

I'm stocking up on cheap 360 games while I'm in the process of saving for a 360.

So far I have:

All of which I have gotten for ten bucks or lower.
