Pokemon X Y/3DS Fwends Fahevah

So um yeah I just got to the safari part and noticed I only have 3 friends...lets get to swapping some codes.

4811-6967-3392

Also....I really wish they gave the option to walk around with one pokemon out of it's pokeball again. That was awesome in one of the earlier games. I think it was Heart Gold/Soul Silver.   read

Whining: Nintendo D-Pad

Am I the only one who is bothered by how small Nintendo is making their d-pads nowadays? They basically shrunk it down during the Gamecube/GBA years and it just stuck.



My thumb is pretty much bigger than the d-pad itself on the newer systems. Which makes playing most modern games suck & virtual console games not as fun as it used to be on the original SNES or NES.



Anyone else annoyed by this?...or am I just a like fat fingered mutant or something?   read

Photo Realism-ish

Awhile back me and my childhood friend were just hanging out drinking and playing games. I was playing Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time and he was watching. He then asks "Have you ever played Black Ops or Modern Warfare?". He told me all about the game and how realistic it looks and what not trying to sell me on it. I told him I just wasn't interested in that game. 

That's when I noticed something about my taste in game visuals...I find hi-res photo realistic-ish graphics to be kind of boring. I don't want my games to look like real life. The main reason I play games to get away from reality. 

Even as a child I was more into Street Fighter than Mortal Kombat. Growing up and transitioning from NES to Super Nintendo my expectation of future videogame graphics was never 3D (up until middle school and the beginning of the N64 Vs. PlayStation cycle). I imagined games would just look sharper and more smoothly animated to the point where I felt like I was playing a cartoon. Something like Wario Land Shake. 

I was wrong. Once 3D hit I loved everything because the three dimensional graphics were so boxy and shitty that nothing looked realistic. Even serious games either looked like a 3D cartoon or a parody of reality. I loved it.

It wasn't until this generation of games that I found myself skipping many games that looked too realistic...except for Skyrim.   read

Nintendo...Mario Online Co-Op...Just Do It

Nintendo really needs to implement some online co-op (or online multiplayer in general) in these recent Mario games.

New Super Mario Bros. U, the upcoming Super Mario 3D World, any upcoming Mario Party games...they all need it. I mean posting screenshots of me playing onto Miiverse or leaving tips on the overworld map gets old. I rather play just play with a friend online.



Not just Mario either. Any first party Nintendo 2+ player games should have a online option. Nintendo Land & Pikmin 3 would be great if you could play online.

...also give me a headset with a mic.   read

Next Gen...& Sh*t

I'm pretty sure in a few years when the price goes down and a few amazing games come out I will own a XBox One or PlayStation 4 but for the time being I'm not that interested.

All they have to offer me is prettier graphics and some other crap tossed in that I will probably never even use use...WTF is a cloud? Record videos of my gameplay? Kinect?...the f*** is that sh*t!? *Old man voice* The only thing that has captured my attention about the next generation is the controllers...they look comfortable as hell to play with.

I think if the last console released was the Wii U I would be fine with that. For the past few years all I wanted was a decent HD Nintendo console. All they need to do is release some great games, advertise their sh*t better and get their online stuff together. Also I am happy with my PS3.   read

Random Thought: Nintendo Mobile

Nintendo should get into mobile gaming development and create some smaller casual games. Nintendo Mobile sounds nice. I am sure they can come up with better mobile games then half the stuff in the market.

They would sell like hot cakes...wait no...what the hell is a hot cake?...Um...they would sell like a cure to herpes...yeahhh like that.

Mario's Coin Jump, Link's Cucco Escape, a new Pokemon Pinball...hell Anything Pinball...Kirby's Flight...just continuous addictive games with hopefully no in app purchases...price em fairly and BAM!

Too bad they will never go that route. If those type of games are even made they will head to the eShop or on something Nintendoland-ish.   read

Music Spotlight: Sheik's Theme by Shag (from his Flyrule album)



Another song that is usually my ringtone or I just go back and listen to it...Hell I listen to the whole Flyrule album. It's amazing.

You can listen to the rest of the album on Shag's Band Camp page.   read

Music Spotlight: Legend of Zelda by Ace da Vinci (produced by Ace da Vinci)



Every now and then I make the chorus to this my ringtone. Heard it for the first time a few years back on Tumblr and have liked it ever since. Figured I would share.

He has more music on his SoundCloud page   read

Am I Growing Out Of Playing Video Games?

The older I get, the more I work, the more tired I get and the more I end up sleeping most of my free time away. Especially since I work overnights so my sleeping hours are pretty effed up. When my days off finally do roll around the last thing I want to be doing is be home playing games, I rather be out of my house having a life...or trying to have a life.


The most I use my consoles for now is movies or shows. While I am at work all I really want is to be at home relaxing and finishing one of those many games I have collecting dust in my library or just taking up memory in my PS3 (God bless Playstation Plus and it's free games I never even play after I download) but when I get home I just end up watching some old T.V. shows on Netflix and falling asleep.

I seem to play games less and less unless it's Mario or Zelda title. I will buy a game and play it for like an hour to a a few minutes over a couple of days and that's it...Usually because I will suck at the game. I wont even bother learning the games mechanics and controls and what not because I know I wont have time to get into or enjoy the game given my life now. Work, sleep, stress, bills, work, sleep, stress, bills....and so on.

Only thing that keeps me in there is portable games. I play those the most. I have a 3DS I take to work and play on my downtime. Also recently purchased a GBA SP and have been buying many great titles I missed out on during my broke years of high school. Even with that though I have my moments where I wont play anything for weeks.


It kind of worries me that I might be growing out of gaming...I do not want to...I love that bitch.   read
