Sunday Sidequests - 12/31/06

3:57 PM on 12.31.2006 // Sheir

So, here we are at Week Two of Sunday Sidequests! Last week, I gave you a taste of what was to come with this article, and now I'm back and ready to punch you in the face with my utter greatness.

This week we have many a flash game. Your typical 3 features will now be accompanied by a lightning round, a bunch of little flash games that I decided should be played, but not featured. It'll be fun. Come along for the ride and throw your mouse at that "View Story" button.

Or click it.

Fancy Pants Adventures: My favorite flash game of all time.

Those who know me, know I'm a huge fan of sidescrollers. Thus, I simply can't help loving Fancy Pants Adventures. It has insanely smooth animation, fun physics, and some seriously kickass level design. Unfortunately, there's currently only one "world", but that should keep you sufficiently entertained for a while. Try getting all the trophies and secrets, and pray that the sequel be released soon!

Toon Crisis: Sony's best advertisement, ever.

I'm pretty sure a lot of you have played Toon Crisis, but it's damn good, and thus it's here. The main premise is that you go through this city, and you shoot little bastard demons with your fingers. It's similar to last week's featured game, Puki, with one key difference: The presence of Gogol Bordello.

My music taste is impeccable, infinitely better than yours, and ever-expanding, and on my amazing list of musical badassery, resides Gogol Bordello. Seriously, they're pretty damn awesome, and this game is so damn perfect for their music it's borderline retarded. Frantically shooting cartoon-y demons to "I Would Never Be Young Again," is pure bliss. Highly recommended game, especially when you get the devil horns and start rocking bitch-faces clean off.

While we're speaking of Gogol Bordello, their music is also featured in the movie Everything is Illuminated. My movie taste is impeccable as well, you guys should check it out.

Music Brothers: Some crazy Japanese music game.

I love me some Guitar Hero, but that's pretty much where my music game lovin' stops, unless of course, you count flash games. Music Brothers is a cracked-out Japanese rhythm game that is as frustrating as it is cute. I just got to level 15, God I am good at this game. If this was online, I would wreck you. Look at the screenshots at the bottom of the article, I included a few of my perfect score screens. I dare you to get to lvl 16, you silly bums. You can't do it. And if you can, you're Rain Man or something.

Anyway, it's your typical arrow-infested rhythm game but with cutesy graphics and really familiar music. The problem I tend to have is, I go along with the beat instead of just playing what's on the screen. But I have since fixed this problem, because I am a God at the game. Seriously. I'm insane. Play it, and tell me what level you get to!

Lightning Round: Multiple games with one sentence descriptions! 

Samorost 1: Confusing point and click adventure game.

Double Jeu: God damn the French.

Gamebrew Tilt: I am terrible at balancing things.

Indian Music Generator: For you, with love, Ishaan.

Snow Trouble!: Some straight up Bugs Bunny trickery.

And that's how we'll end this week's Sunday Sidequests! Remember, you can always send your flash games to our Gmail account. It makes my job a lot easier. As a matter of fact, almost all of this week's flash games were contributed by Cruds. You're the man, sir. Thanks.

Yay, I got off of work early and may have Friday off! I have a sinking feeling I'm going to work 10 hours on Saturday as a result, though :/ We ran out of stuff to make stuff with so they must ship us stuff so we can ship stuff.

I have now played all 3 Witcher games. My verdict: Witcher 1 - alright, aged badly, lots of sex. Witcher 2 - good, very short, not much sex at all. Witcher 3 - Excellent in every way.

I really wish MGO had been implemented with free-roam gameplay PMC (clan) setup instead of the standard matchmaking. Imagine roaming bands of PMC's opposing each other on the battlefield. How sexy would that be?

Playing Shantae & The Pirates Curse, must say I'm loving it for the most part, barring the odd WHERE AM I D: moment

Added a humble code to my steam account when I already had the game. Purely because the soundtrack was attached. Now I see it on 2 friends wishlists. They must never know.

Okay so what 2, 3, 4 years later I bothered to finish. Now to write up that blog on why FFXIV lost my love by never challenging me and see if it's actually interesting...

What's up with taking your phone or a magazine to the toilet? Y'all need more fibre in your diet, why should a toilet visit take more than 2 minutes? What are you people doing with your asses.

Finished Momohime/Jinkuro's story in Muramasa last night. I always liked that ending. I didn't know there were more endings, though. On to Kisuke's story!

It feels like each day I get up, do the rounds of my bookmarks, and am immediately brought down by kneejerk hate: new stuff, old stuff, last nights stuff, 2moros stuff, a game, a film, TV. Critical thinking is fine, but dang, pure cynicism's winning :(

Rpg Maker MV is coming soon O: I mean I am overjoyed but... I JUST GOT USE TO VX ACE!! Either way, I intend to do a form of quick summery of the features on release o:

Nintendo's(?) weekly SMM level picks: [url][/url] - scroll down a bit for the list. I wish I didn't need to type in the level ID myself, though.

Metal Gear Online, Day 2. The maps in this game are amazing. Try out all 3 classes, because they're all pretty different. Really getting the hang of the game now.

Video game voice actors are threatening to go on strike if EA, Activision, Disney, WB, and others refuse to pay them the necessary bonuses (

I love how Final Fantasy Record Keeper is making a big deal about being able to unlock FF XII's Vaan. I do get to unlock Ashe though, so that's cool.
