New Video from the guy who made that Street fighter video

Looks like TheSwitcher is up to his old tricks again. From his Street Fighter vid to his new video titled: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Stupidity

I felt this one is his best one yet, and I do still have warm fuzzy feelings about this show. I'm going to need to watch it all over again now. Well here is the vid for all of you guys to hopefully enjoy too

Since I failed miserably at the Not my turning point pc contest, I had to go and fix me up with a rig.

Games that people should play: Azure Dreams

Time for my first serious long blog, wish me luck! (please remember that it has been a long time since I played this game so I will be using a bit of Wikipedia for help but I will add my own color commentary)



This game is made of so much win I wish everyone can go out and play it either by having an actual disc or not emulate it. Quoting the story section from Wikipedia: The game involves a boy named Koh from the town of Monsbaiya, which is set at the foot of the gigantic Monster Tower, which houses a plethora of monsters and bizarre creatures. At the age of fifteen, Koh has come of age and is entitled to enter the tower to slay monsters and live up to his missing father's reputation, his father being the greatest monster hunter who ever lived.
EDIT: THIS GAME IS FOR THE PLAYSTATION 1


Konami made this game in 1998 when Pokemon was hot and everyone always liked a good Japaneses rpg.
So this game is a bit of a cross between Actraiser 1, Pokemon, with a battle system that kinda like turn based. You get to improve the town by building new areas and helping out the local citizens. I like this game because it has a lot of side quests so there is a lot of work that can be done in this game.

The main goal is to reach the top of the monster tower to see what happened to your father while fighting against an endless amount of monsters, while collecting items that will help you like swords and shields and monster eggs. This game is difficult because every time you exit the tower you have to start all over from floor 1 although if you die not only do you have to start at level 1, but you lose all of your gear making things a lot harder.

Each floor is randomly generated and the monsters are different depending on the floor. while you are playing you have to watch out for booby traps (lol boobies) and your Rival.



Another fun thing is the love sidequests, there are seven girls (count em seven) that can all simultaneously fall in love with you, and once the pool is open you get to be lucky enough to see them in their bikinis.

All in all I wouldn't want to spoil the story but I strongly suggest you get a chance to try out this game because it is an experience you will never forget.

Well that's all for this chapter, tune in next time when I outline another great game that people should play.
(I hope I don't fail too too much, but I want to nominate myself for a dtoid card!)   read

Can it be true? Chrono Trigger never hit Euro shores?

I was scanning the always accurate online dictionarry wikipedia and in big bold text. It has never been released in PAL territories.. I was shocked when I read this and I am deeply sadden that my gaming brothers have never experienced the joy that is Chrono Trigger.

I want to know if this is actually true and did any of you guys from Europe were able to at least not download it for not emulators. And how did you find out about this game because when this game came out before the internet, how would you have known about this game?


Please don't direct me to the forums because that place is scary   read

101 year old man plans to run marathon (NVGR)

alright time to finally dip my finger in the blog pond, going to try this thing out so please don't hit me with fail

So in general 101-year-old Buster Martin plans on running and at least completing the London Marathon, he has completed a half marathon in 5 hours and 13 minutes and plans on having a beer and a smoke after he is finished. This guy is awesome and I hope that I am half as strong-willed as he is when I am his age (without the beard)
