Rosenkreuzstilette after a day of hardcore play and next up is Blood Over

For those that missed the download link here it is

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=GWHUZMF6

The game's passwords are exactly like Mega man 4's EXACTLY.
Stage layouts not so much there are moments where you'll say THAT'S MEGA MAN

OK WHERE have we seen this before?



I died too many times trying to get the screen shot form the "Toad Man level" but you'll fight that snail thingy only slightly redone. The "Wily Castle" has an auto Scroll part where you fight a huge ass cross ala Mega Man 2.
Ok so the game isn't entirely Original but it's ok it it's a Doujin game. One of the better done ones I've played.

I gotta say this is one to check out once again

The Next Doujin Game I have nothing but good things to say about is Blood Over

It's a 3d game but PSX graphics (maybe slightly better) Probably the best way to explain it is Devil May cry on a 2d plane.

here's a screen shot, No download link yet, that'll wait until I review it

Actually here's Video of it


and here's Rosenkreuzstilette in action too

Studies show my Foot up your ass and thoughts on Rosenkreuzstilette



I have my reasons. But I'd like to become a research Psychologist. For one to disprove aspergers exists (or make it easier to diagnose so other fuck ups never happen again) But also these dumb video game violence studies being conducted by non gamers with an agenda.

Also I want to know once and for all why furries are so fucked up in the head.


Thoughts on

Rosenkreuzstilette

If Castlevania and Bomberman got together and fucked and then Mega Man and Mario 3 got together and fucked and then the offspring of both fucked this would be what that birthed.

Yes this game is the product of Baby fucking

The Mario and Bomberman references are just for one stage But Toss in Syd of Valis with Mega Man and Castlevania and you pretty much have the neo Dojin Classic Rosenkreuzstilette



EPIC that screen shot is. That stage pays homage to Mario and Metal Man's stage (with an EXACTLY replica of the start of that stage half way through. Other stages are just sorta there. You think the lasers in Quick Man's stage were brutal this one has a laser puzzle EVEN WORSE. I need the F'n Password yo.

Just Like Mega Man there's a prologue stage which is optional. and then you choose form 8 "Female mistresses" Yes all the enemies are girls and all are HAWT in that anime sorta way. Your main character plays JUST LIKE Mega Man and there's a code that lets you play as one of the Bosses who is more or less this game's Zero. Pretty sweet.

Music is great controls are decent I'm stuck on a keyboard for now but as far as keyboard control it's decent.

I tend to think of it as ANOTHER Mega Man Spin off set some time between ZX and Legends even though that's not the story at all (something about magic users) but the game's in Japanese make your own story up.

Download this bitch.

I fail OH GOD DO I FAIL

Remember how I said there's not penalty in Blazblue for dropping games? Apparently...it TELLS YOU AND POTENTIAL OPPONENTS HOW MANY GAMES YOU DROPPED.

Mark this day on your calenders.....I admit I fail.

I have also come to the conclusion that Bang is freaking awesome and I need to get awesome with him.

Anyways with Marvel VS Capcom 2 coming in a few weeks supporting custom soundtracks I went and cobbled together a Custom soundtrack pack for the game made up of remixes of classic Capcom tunes.

Enjoy

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=H7I5WYGM

So what can we expect from MVC2 online? People who only spam the upper cut slashes of Hayato and Strider? Cable spam? Mega Man buster abuse? Tag in Tag out abuse?

Lord only knows, but I'll take any of you on.

Any who hope you enjoy my freebie peace offering MVC2 custom soundtrack. I might make more later on.

By the way did I mention I FAIL?



I hath taken fail and made it into an art form

If you look up fail in the dictionary there is a picture of me.

In fact... FAIL is Latin for my name.

My Bowels are about to explode FIGHT



That video has nothing to do with this blog at all.

I've been putting a ton of time into Blazblue lately and doing my best to get the online achievements. I'm level 21 now with a bit over 100 matches under my belt, most of them are spam fests with Jin. Akune and Noel users give me the most trouble and beating them to a pulp it quite satisfying while my best matches are against Rachel and Bang users. My Favorite match ever was this morning against a Bang user and for once I was Ragna not Jin and it was SO close and so intense it'd be one of those matches that gather crowds in an arcade.

See I don't think fighters should penalize us for dropping out of a game. If a match is so one sided you should have the right to leave and not be penalized. One sided matches aren't fun unless you're a super conpetivie asshole who spends half his life playing the game and the other half on Dustloop and Shoryuken.

Said assholes are all over games like Street FIghter IV and Blazblue. In Garou and KOF 98 UM I have only encountered a few of these move spamming jerks. And the thing about fighting me in any fighter is figuring out my pattern. I fight in patterns using the moves I know do the most damage or will keep distance between me an my opponent. These tactics are effective but when I finally find somebody that can counter me the fight usually gets onesided good example is when I use Jin in Blazblue or when everybody else uses Noel. One sided matches aren't fun. I get bored beating people with the same 4 moves fighting Arakune users however forced me to use Jin differently. Now it's gotten to where I can beat just about anyone with Jin and using him is nothing more than a reflex action.

Street Fighter IV has too many Sagat and Shoto spammers if they aren't using them they're either Abel, Zangeif or Honda changing up my game doesn't really help much. I mainly use cammy and there isn't much left with her I haven't tried against spammers unless I have an arcade stick. I don't like to use Ken or Ryu because they just make it too easy ya know?

This goes back more though CVS2 on XBOX and 3rd strike the skills between me and my opponents were so wide open that few matches online in either were fun. While Pros dismiss online I DO THINK these hypocrites are laughing at people on XBOX live.

The key is fun a good even match is required for an online fighter to be fun. I'm so sick of move spammers I'm sick of being a move spammer But as long as there are ranks and achievements...people will spam.

Who's bad? (actually I want to discuss dojin games)

Obligatory Michael Jackson reference.

You know though, The genesis Moonwalker was a terrible game but the Arcade game was awesome.

But I'm not going to talk about Michael Jackson. The whole rest of the world is. In fact in the days following his "death" I was listening to Prince out of rebellion. Not that I dislike the zombie of pop...I just knew I'd hear Thriller or Billie Jean every 15 seconds and needed a dose of Pussy Control, Purple Rain and the amazing Emancipation album. Remember one thing we're going to have to put up with this shit all over again when Madonna bites it and since she's a gay Icon...it'll be even worse.


Moving on, I'm getting a laptop very very soon. like VERY soon. with in a few weeks. So I wanted to load it with Dojin Games.

Seems most Dojin games are either awesome shmups or fighters, or shitty shumps and fighters. Glove on Fight looked pretty awesome. There's that Azumanga fighter. Shootthecore had a ton of great links. Then there's ABA games. If you haven't checked them out YOU MUST, Torus trooper is amazing and should be an XBLA game or maybe wiiware I'm not sure.

Anywho I don't have a ton to say about Dojin games since I don't know much about them. Isn't there a new all girl one from an Ex capcom employee?

Then there's mugen. OH DEAR GOD I hate the mugen community. Makes Chornos and his spam look like regular chit chat.

Eh I'm raking my brian here trying to write something. I'll leave this as is. So what've we got for Dojin Games?
Bearing in mind none of you know just how much I've downloaded by now (big bang beat IS one of them)

Ok then moving right along how about all the Love SNK is giving us lately?

Hows about Garou and KOF 98 on XBLA?



The First of SNK's XBLA Double Whammy. Garou is every bit as great as it was in arcades It's better than the flawed Dreamcast port and the XBLA version is in fact a port of the PS2 version, which in it self was great. That said It is missing a few bells and whistles the Gallery Mode is gone and the arrange soundtrack while not radically better than the Original is also gone.



There is a neat extra which actally works for All SNK games on XBLA if you set your system language to Japanese, the Game will be in Japanese and any achivements you get while said game is in Japanese will be displayed in Japanese. Neat plus Kushnood Butt can get his proper name and be Marco Rodriguez again.



This is every bit the Garou I remember and the great thing about Garou is just how great the last is. Even the annoying little shit Hokotomaru is fun to use (AND A BASTARD I HATE NARUTO JR) It's a great cast and all are well animated for a 10 year old game (yeah can you believe it this game is a decade old) it's aged well and is as fresh now as it was then. The Achivements aren't too bad some are a bit tricky like:

Invincible Wolf (20)

Clear STORY MODE, don't lose any round, any continue, don't encount KAIN *In default BATTLE SETTING

I didn't know that was even possible.....

and

Impregnable Defense (20) Take "Just Defense" more than 10 times in one match. *STORY MODE only

Is that just defend 10 times in a match or make the dumb AI Just defend 10 times.... the engrish tells me nothing

The game is not without it's flaws, Controls aren't nearly as tight as they could be though I had trouble getting supers off the rest came out ok but something was off, this is the case with other SNK titles on XBLA due to the controller motions it's a little easier to pull things off. But I really can't say controls are tight here.

Alot of people are complaining about the online I personally have not had a laggy match the same is the case with KOF 98 UM. But online has been decent for me. I don't like how it's set up it's the most basic of basic online and nowhere near as great the wonderful HD Remix's lobbies and quarter matches.

But looking past these it's SNK's Masterpiece for $10 and it's well worth it if you haven't played before or want to face other humans in it. As this is SNK's only real tourney worthy fighter.



As if Garou wasn't enough SNK saw fit to tide those waiting for their preordered Amazon copies of Blazblue to arrive with King of Fighters 98 Ultimate match. While still a great update to what many consider the best KOF it was in fact an incredibly half assed port. Yes is has Mai x2 and that's all well and good BUT... well I'll list the problems

-The game WAS NOT EVEN TRANSLATED Victory quotes and the menu that shows up when you choose ultimate is in Japanese. There's no excuse for this Siloconera explained it Still NO EXCUSE

- As that stated this is a port of the Type X arcade game and NOT the far superior PS2 version so this means the gorgeous background int he PS2 version aren't there a shame as the 3d backgrounds in the ps2 version were a huge step up from the Dreamcast's 98 port.

-No arrange soundtrack. KOF music is some of the best in all of fighting gamedom. Now this is a port of the arcade version I understand but why a game running on something like type X didn't get the arrange to begin witch baffles me they could have fixed it here.

I don't think size is an issue as the game only clocks in at 124mb, it would not have been much more to add the 3d backgrounds and arrange soundtrack I don't think and it still would have clocked in under the XBLA limit.



What SNK DID bother to keep is neo-geo mode. You can play KOF 98 as it was on the AES so you get 2 games for one, however regular 98 does not get it's own set of achivements.

If you haven't picked up the superior PS2 version yet here's what Ultimate match adds to the table. Eiji, Kasumi, Geese, Krauser, Mr big, Orochi, Goenitz, Riot blood Leona and Riot blood Iori. Also if you don't want to fight Rugal you don't have to getting a certian number of DM finishes nets you a battle with either Goenitz or Orochi while both are hard battles it's not nearly as bad as if you have to face Rugal. Beating these bosses unlocks them.

Online is exactly the same as Garou and unlike Garou I have had one weird laggy match This is a problem for achivement whores if the game is laggy online as half the achivements are online based.

If you want KOF 98 on line here it is. If you want the best most complete version of KOF 98 get it on PS2.

Another Day of E3 Begins so...

You know what sucks? Having to hack into your own computer because the other people who use it don't want you on it. I'm typing this in safe mode with networking, While I very well could delete the password keeping me from full featured everything I'm just biding my time until I get a sweet Asus Laptop I found at Best Buy.

So I think it's safe to say E3 started out on a MEH note. EA showed off some cool games and announced MMA which is sure to be very interesting. Ubisoft had James Cameron spoil avatar for everyone. which I didn't watch because Raw was on. (Taped it) Red Steel 2 is now trying to be Rising Zan and no Beyond Good and Evil 2 made for a boring several hours, some of which I was watching Raw (which was MEH last night too save for the Flair/Orton fight) When are we going to see another Rayman game anyway? I'd LOVE to see a lush colorful nextgen Rayman. Those rabbids need to die in a fire.

Microsoft showed off Natal (which I mistakenly called Nextal) and new features for the 360 which excited me more than the games. (If you MEH me being excited about Facebook on 360 then you don't know me at all. If I could be on Facebook 24/7 I would be.) Last FM is great but...can we listen to that in game? I like the Sky deal for the Uk but will we get something like this for the US?

I wish Bungie would stop making Halo games. Halo is getting really old, ODST looks awesome but Reach...I don't know it's over kill. The thing is can Microsoft get something people will drool over as much as Halo? Gears of War doesn't out sell Halo so that's not it. I think after Halo Reach Bungie should work on a game that isn't Halo and show everyone they aren't one trick ponys. Even that fanboy hack Kojima takes a break from Metal Gear every now and then (Speaking of which I will remove hack before his name is Snatcher and Policenaughts are ported to XBLA and PSN)

Epic's XBLA game looks pretty sweet too. I forget it's name but as a fan of old school I appreciate Epic making this as it shows they love the old school and aren't afraid to make something besides an FPS every now and then.

Based on yesterday's events I have preorders for Modern Warfare 2 and Assassin's Creed II placed at Amazon. I need to see more of how Splinter Cell Conviction plays before I'm totally sold on it.

I gotta take a shower I'll be back later to post my (Probably Bias) thoughts on Nintendo and Sony's Press events.

More E3 thoughts

Dear G4 Next year DO NOT show Ubisoft's Press Conference.

UBISoft Soup gave us:

Assassin's Creed II...FUCK YEAH

Q? and Ubisoft working on a Game together? YES

MEH at everything else Ubisoft was showing.

Red Steel 2- No Blood? PFFT and it's a western now... MEH

Tween Games SUPER MEH

I'm keeping an open mind with Splinter Cell Conviction now though. The older games really bored me and were FUCKING HARD AS FUCKING FUCK FUCK

No More Heroes 2- the 3rd reason of 4 to get a wii

EA....

hmm Brutal Legend is going to.. Ahem ROCK!

EA Sports MMA....... I'm not a huge fan of what EA's done, NBA Street was the only sports game of theirs I had
But I'm curious as to how they'll handle this since THQ already has UFC. THERE ARE OTHER MMA Groups so we'll see... I'm not an MMA Fan but I respect MMA Fighters and if it turns out decent I might just check it out.

Crysis 2 on consoles...count me in.....plus I THINK My soon to be new Lappy might beable to run Crysis

APB might be an MMO I can get into, looked great

I'm not fangasaming over Old Republic. Fuckin Nerds

I'd say more but CONAN IS ON!

Well then Microsoft's E3 Press con......the Crowd goes Mild...until the end

HOLY SHIT Nextal Out Wii's the Wii.

So we get motion controls with the 360 now, granted this isn't new, The 360 Vision Camera did it. Sony's Eyetoy, the Mocap games. Even the DSI, However voice recognition real time scanning and such...that's new. I'm impressed.

Gamewise DISAPPOINTED. I'm not an MGS fan it's nice the 360 is getting the whole series. I can stop calling Kojima a Fanboy now...I can still call him a hack though. Raiden? Uh isn't Radien WHY MGS2 was the only XBOX installment?

Crackdown 2, MEH
Halo ODST and Reach, MEH
Splinter Cell Conviction, MEH
Modern Warfare 2, MEH
Forza 3, MEH STILL doesn't look like a Gran Turismo killer to me and that's really what it needs to be.
Left 4 Dead 2, I still don't have 1 dammit

Beatles Rock Band, Nice choices on the setlist They included I am the Walrus. Hopefully While my guitar gently weeps makes the game. Omitting that song from the game is almost as unforgivable as no Mai in KOF XII.

Facebook on XBOX live to me was HUGE news mostly because I fuckin live on Facebook. I'm pumped about that. Granted Wii and PS3 have Facebook already which brings me to my next complaint...

I'm disappointed that we STILL do no have a web browser for the 360 EVERY other console even the Wii and DS have one so why aren't the Maker's of IE putting one on 360?

Oh right......I'll crash too much and infest the 360 with more viruses than Firefox would...

The Next step for the 360 needs to be web browsing they NEED to do that now. the 360 is as of now (We'll see tomorrow) the most feature packed system on the market so it remains to be seen what Nintendo and Sony have up their sleeves.

So a new addon that out wii's the wii and Facebook connectivity are the big ones which again......the other consoles and handhelds are Already facebook ready....Myspace too and GULP even Friendster....remember Friendster?

-Ubi Soft Shows off Killing day...for 360

-Nintendo has another shitty press conference that does NOTHING to appease it's hardcore fanbase. Reggie goes missing and is found weeks later somehow floating down the Mississippi river.

-More fighting game comebacks will be announced. But nobody will care that Zero Divide is coming back. The Previously announced Wii return of Toshinden is met with laughter. The new Darkstalkers HD Remix collection will be met will fangasams worldwide.

-Nintendo's new Wii Suck will be the surprise hit of the show.

-BlazBlue Supra % will be announced as well as it's next upgrade Blazblue Double# both games are just mild gameplay tweeks with Boss Ragina playable, they still will retail full price.

-1500 FPS games for 360 will be unveiled....nobody gives a shit cuz all anyone plays on 360 is Call of Duty and Halo anyway.

-Inspite of the controversy and uproar RAPElay is coming to XBLA and PSN.

-Somehow someway the gaming gods allow Deathsmiles to come the US...Konami are still dicks and Deny the west Otomedius.

-Digdug CE is the next Namco classic to come XBLA

-Somehow someway Sony will unveil something will make PSN equal with XBLA...and the crowd goes mild.

-Capcom's 2nd mystery game will be a new Strider.

-The biggest RPG of the show...will be for PS2

-Sega shows off 20 new sonic games nobody gives a shit about...none of them are a Mega Man 9 styled Sonic 4

-Lara Croft will be in western Versions of Final Fantasy XIII this will be shown during Microsoft's press event.

-Chronos Me (not me but somebody named me) and that other douche will leave a comment about how fail this is...I ignore them.

-Square also annouces they're shutting down production of a Final Fantasy VI Remake they have sent out cease and desist letters......and it's THEIR OWN DS REMAKE they're shutting down, only because Fans of VI are making it.

-Oprah has a game annouced for Wii.......her zombies will make it the best selling game ever.

-then the dark lord rises and the world ends.

-Hardcore game of show will be Bayonetta or Assassin's Creed 2

-Game of show for the mainstream drones will either be Halo 3 ODST or some causal Wii game nobody gives a shit about.

What I'm watching- Anime Boston Stash edition

Been awhile since I did one of these so...here's what I got on tap from AB.



An Odd Choice since it only exists to write fan fics for... I happen to like it. Plus one of my 2 best friends loves Weiss.....

then again she's a Yaoi fan girl...



If Boogie Pop Phantom and Blade runner had a baby...this is it's retarded offspring.
Ergo Proxy may as well be called "What the fuck is going on here"

It does have a few things going for it Re-L is HOT but without her make up she's generic.
And the end theme is Paranoid Android. But over all I kept hearing about how Unique and unlike other anime it is..... I have yet to see it other than...It uses a Radiohead song for it's ending.



Ryuhei Kitamura Is the Japanese Uwe Boll. Azumi and it's sequel were made for Weeaboo's and Weeaboo;s only.
This Movie has a cameo by the most overrated game producer of all time....The shitastic Hideo Kojima.

The movie is just flat out cheesy and horrible........

and that's why it's so awesome that and the ending. Plus nobody has a name so it's easy to follow.

This is the ultimate edition so it's pack with extras and shit.



This isn't a classic But Central Park Media is a good company to turn to for those obscure yet interesting
OVAS and Series. Baki has it's followers and it's a good way to cap off any marathon. It's short, has great action but isn't overwhelming.



NOW we're Talking......... Afro Samurai is the new Ninja Scroll. It does for today what Ninja Scroll did in the 90s.

Anime made for the west has been...for the most part a Miss. You can't really say Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust was amazing......it was well animated but the voice acting ON BOTH FRONTS left alot to be desired and the ending was just WTF?

AFRO doesn't do this. First off.......Samuel "English mother fucker do you speak it" L Jackson.......That's already win. THEN Music by RZA.....OH SHIT...........GONZO WHAT GONZO MADE THIS....Fuck I'm in.

When It aired on Spike I wasn't overly impressed but seeing the DVDs of it and it's even better superior sequel....... BUY IT Just fucking buy it......NOW I DEMAND YOU. If you love Ninja Scroll. You'll Love Afro even more.



Big O

Speaking of Anime made for the West...here's another one of the Greats. Sentimental Favorite here and one where the Dub is the only way to go.

Unique Anime too.....in both look and story. They don't make em like this anymore.



OH SHIT OH SHIT OH SHIT........ that was me when I found this was out in the states as a GOOD DVD.

well.....besides the dips in picture quality at random times........AND the fact that the ENDING SUCKED.......
FUCK it's Hokuto no Ken and it's a US Release BUY IT so we can show Toei there's a Market for ken and his skull busting ways.

BTW Heart's death in this one was BAD ASS!



Haven't even started yet.... I like the designs and it's Gonzo....and VAMPIRES...

Yeah Ithis should be good



HERE is a Unique Anime. Just a good slice of life story.... Probably watch this last.



Lastly.......my awesome find of the day........A Ghibli art book

Question for the commenters

In a Fight Who wins

Kenshiro or Afro Samurai?
