I haven't played the game. Hell, I haven't even seen gameplay videos or anything.
But a screencap is all I need to really, really want this No More Heroes--if for nothing else, to drool over the brilliant artwork and graphics. There's something extremely appealing to me about it. Normally, I'm not really a big fan of cell-shaded 3D, but in No More Heroes is beautifully well-done. I think the reason would be that it isn't solid colours, but has detailed patterns and textures laid over top, giving it more depth and, well, texture.
I also appreciate it isn't cartoony in the way that, for example, LoZ: Wind Waker was (which was dissapointing to me, graohics-wise) but has an edgy, stylistic look that catches peoples' eye. I mean, come on.
How can you say no to that?! For a videogame character, I'd say that Travis Touchdown has it goin' on in the looks department. (ahem.) But it begs the question: where have you seen an otaku that looks like this?
(lol, amirite? amirite?)
Okay, so maybe I could tone down the gushing a bit but, as an artist myself I can appreciate these things, okay? And I hope you can too
Yes. Well, I've had my account for a little while, and have been wondering just what would be a suitable first blog. Honestly, I'd rather just get started with news, rants and similar videogame-related crap, but I oughta introduce myself, right?
But first, I should ask-- what is generally accepted as a first blog? And am I a n00b for asking that? (yes. yes I am.)
You can call me supermetroid. Or Mari. Or whatever nickname suits you. I'm a fan of nintendo mainly, to be honest I enjoy colourful, easy games because I like feeling like I've accomplished something even though I have shit hand-eye coordination. On that note, I probably talk more about videogames than I actually play them. That's not to say I don't, because I do, plenty. I love metroid games, and well as simulation and sandbox games because I'm creative like that :'D But I do play a large variety.
