I've beat Faxanadu in one (long) sitting. I've never played Halo. As a child, I nick named the second gun upgrade in Stinger "Potty Pot Shot" as the bullets are round and reminded me of toilet bowls. I believe in video game violence, a friend knocked me out cold at age 12, we we're practicing our Dragon Punch's. I've rented Brittany's Dance Beat....twice. Zelda 2 is amazing, and so is Simon's Quest.
Today may be the best day of my life! Some kid had an add that just said " Box of vintage games, $40. I emailed him as soon as I saw it asking what games were in said box. He responded that he didn't have time to look but there were over 30 games and a NES and SNES. I figured that no matter if it were 30 copies of Drakken It'd still be great becasue my SNES shit the bed years age and I've been playing on a FC Twin. I got to his house, forked over the $40 and ran. I drove down the road to my office and started to tear the box apart . When I saw FFIII in nearly shit, when I saw Earthbound I dry fucked a pile of cartridges.
I have alot of NES/SNES doubles that I'd be willing to offer up to Retroforce GO! Contest's. I'll whip up a list of my doubles soon.
Also, hey everyone, I don't blog here much but have been a member for some time.
Tonight, in Connecticut, The Protomen and Anamanaguchi are playing. If you know nothing of these bands, as
a video game fan, you owe it to yourself to check them out
The Protomen play operatic rock base on the early Megaman games.....yup! I can't wait to go crazy for these
epic dudes! If anyone would be interested, I'll be taking video and I'll post it if:
A. you want it B. If I'm not to drunk and the video looks like a epileptic shot it.
I'm not going to review the game, thats been done to death by this point. But I'm sure that everyone grew their own opinion on it at this point an I'd like to hear yours.
I thought it was fun over all. The stylus controls shined during the last battle with the Possessed Limbeck, that was probably my favorite part of the game. A lot of the dungeons were very linear, I almost never found myself lost. The only part of the game I struggled with was the floors of the hourglass dungeon with the 3 gems. And I wasn't pulling my hair out, just messed it up the first try. And seriously, a TIMED dungeon? Aren't timers put in adventure games when they ran out of clever ideas for puzzles?
I wish it had been a bit longer too, and thats coming from a guy who has little time for gaming. So what did everyone think? Did this stack up to you other favorite portable Zelda's?
My 360 was declined delivery today. I wasn't aware I had to be there to sign for it! I didn't have to be there when the UPS guy left a 42in Plasma screen on my front porch!!! On top of that, I won't be able to pick it up or be at home for delivery till Monday or Tuesday. Cuntery!
Then I get an email saying the King of Fighters X1 got pushed back it mid November! Don't they know I'll be mushroom deep in Super Mario Galaxy and Assassins Creed by then. Not to mention catching up on 360 games I purchased a month ago!
Someone give me some good news before I have to type more exclamation marks.....!
I never owned a original XBOX due to ExTREME name and lack of games I was interested in. Which lead me to a lack of interest in the XBOX 360 (double ExTREME DooDZ!), but as soon as I learned of Mistwalker making Blue Dragon for the system I knew good things would come! So last xmas my girlfriend got me a 360 with GoW and I was a happy boy! Other than replaying SotN for the millionth time I didn't use it for much, just some real casual gaming. Until Eternal Sonata and Blue Dragon came out I had MAYBE stacked up about 20 hours all together playing 360 console games. I got ES first due to countless reviews telling me how short it was, I figured it'd be a good starter into my new world of 360 RPG's.
We'll about 6 hours into the game my CD drive stops reading disc's entirely. I call the Microsoft "help" line and get what seems to be a woman of unknown nationality doing a Creole accent. WTF? She had me run a quick test to determine that it was in fact busted. We'll its broke and I'm waiting for my shipping box for the UPS man. The thing that bums me out is that It didn't die from overheating, isn't that the common problem? Am I going to get it back in 2 months and get the red rings or do they now replace the heat sinks knowing that they'll break soon anyway?
To soothe my pain I bought MP:C.....Gooooooood Stuff!
