Every story has a beginning.. and mine starts with the classic consoles. From Atari, NES, to Gen. Odd how things worked out, from blips to characters sprawling over an open world. Either by pipe or a loop-de-loop. Those times have passed, but still are a part of our gamer hearts.
Well my playlist thus far.. Pitfall, Pac-Man, Super Mario Bros 1-3, Castlevania, Sonic the Hedgehog, Phantasy Star, Final Fantasy, Metroid, Earthworm Jim, Mega Man, and many more.. this list could take awhile trust me.
Other M - A collaboration between Tecmo's Team Ninja & Nintendo (along with a familiar director at the helm). Something awesome is happening here (I apologize if this has been posted before. But its definitely something this Metroid fan has to share!)
Hey crew, moving today (to Tucson, AZ!) Should make for an interesting trip, aside from the adventure of taking most things out of storage. (plus the epic unpacking!) Been several months since I played any videogames, I feel a bit mixed up inside (I really miss playing my games). But huzzah! When all is said and done, I will have one of my hobbies back.
*note and some delayed game reviews included ;-; I am so-so behind...
(that and I still need to catch up on several new titles (as in buy them) ^^;
Alright, might be awhile till I can post again. Later =D
Awhile back the crew from Overclocked remixed shared "Blood on the Asphalt". The collaborative project involving numerous talents paying tribute to a long running arcade fighter series. Numerous members within the community kept quiet for awhile, until a "ninja appeared" letting go of the rumor that Capcom had dibs on the soundtrack.
Fast forward to many long listless nights of waiting, with SSF2THDRMX finally hitting gaming marketplaces.
And thus more awesomeness was shared.
Halloween - an animation short teaser came up on a site advertised "Night of the Werehog". It promised a future release of an entire mini-film. From the outset the animation is fluid, cute, yet so creative (Sega's animation team is onto something even for a small piece). Best part? There is little to no dialog in the teaser.. almost gives it a silent film treatment.
Fast forward to now.. over at the same said site http://www.sega.com/sonicunleashed/notw/us/ There is now the full animation short, and its actually very well done.
- the character designs are totally from the new game, and refined
(so much detail, that the Werehog quills shine, and Chip's shivers just make him more adorable)
- the story is simple, Sonic & Chip happen to pass by the house (not knowing its haunted). And those that reside are a trio of ghosts, waiting for more victims to take "kodak" moments.
- the direction is very creative, and it captures a bit of innocence & fun (hey this is Sonic, but in a cg film; they are onto something brilliant here!) =D
- For anyone that enjoys animation, plus a good amount of fun; go check it out! =D
Some odd time ago, I attended PAX (and met many fun & exciting people). This was the last time I touched a controller.. yes this was. And so months later... um I bite my tongue every time I watch gameplay, or any trailer I come across. A list of the following occurrences without having a healthy dose of gaming
4) mixed up
5) I begin to see loop-de-loops in my sleep (sonic world adventure why did you do this to me!?)
6) the colors!
7) i just miss playing games period
Even with my list of "stuff I'd like to buy", my non-gaming sessions have really taken me back. I feel so strange without playing a game this long. Plus I'm due to be moving soon (and expecting a visit from a special someone) =D (*Thus my stuff is in storage until then)
So I weep charismatically in this entry..
Prince of Persia
Tomb Raider Underworld
Street Fighter IV
Street Fighter Turbo HD Remix
Just a few titles to list.. sure there's many coming out "very soon". But those are on my "hey this I gotta play!" list. Seriously, after not playing any games for awhile, it does get to you. Another reason why I haven't been writing much here.. (sigh) Thing is.. with the NXE coming up, I really need to update my 360 (upgrading the hard drive). Since my system has the ever loving 20GB, and my list of games.. I'm going to need to get that going. (sometime soon)
I bite my tongue every time I read a friend's review of some title, to just writing a positive comment. I'm not a negative monkey, I like being a teddy bear.
So to wrap up, I ask you faithful gamer (and reader)
How long have you gone without playing videogames?
Greetings fellow archaeologists, if you've kept an eye on the web; you may know of something golden. Pray tell what is that? An interactive site, based on Tomb Raider Underworld.
Quick reading this, and go!
