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.

Looks like I'm not gonna be able to 100% Tearaway Unfolded until Monday at the least. I'm definitely writing about it this weekend and am trying my hardest to get my screenshots off of my PS4 (especially hard as I don't do social media anymore)

I've never done a blog before, so I may as well try one with a review of Stranger of Sword City....well, when I get entered into that contest of course

Shakedown Hawaii is giving me good GTA vibes. I missed the topdown GTA games when they were a thing. I have to decide what platform to get it for since it's coming to 3DS/Vita/PS4/PC (probably the Vita version for moi).

You think your art sucks? Here's the rule34 I made of Larx yesterday. Look at it and despair.

Hey Dreamweaver? If you think your art sucks, you should have a look at my magnum opus. It's of Cloud from the popular game, Final Fantasy: All the Bravest.

I never thought this would happen, but here I am. all of my 700+ pokemon gone in one day. My cart stopped working and there's nothing I can do. I quit, you can't just rebuild all that. Time to find something else.

Tom Collins is a pretty great drink, and well suited for poutine. consumption

It may be because I've been drinking but... We need some dung beetles from ark for the front page. Move that dung on out.

Does anyone know how to get PS4 screenshots onto a PC without needing a flash drive? I don't have a spare.

This is an example of how bad my drawings are. I honestly think drawing stick figures would've been easier on the eyes. :( The worst thing about this image is that this was made after I got BETTER. Trust me, you don't want to see my earlier stuff. T^T

So I received a mysterious box in the mail today. When I opened it I was blown away...The friends I've made here on Destructoid are amazing (More pics in the comments).

Woe is me. This month's Cblog theme is basically an excuse to draw pretty girls, and here I am with no time.

A very Bloodborne-y moment.

Back in tip-top shape guys, feel waaaaay better than I have done these past few weeks. Plus my voice sounds slightly raspy now, meaning my Batman impression has been upgraded. Apologies to Gaj and Solar the most, my male-up kisses go to you: Xxxxxx

Wait... Is that...? Could it be...? It IS! Gravity Rush's Kat has taken a break from rushing and graviting to sacrifice some souls in Soul Sacrifice Delta! Which isn't even going for $8 on the PS Store right now! What a steal!

Finally got my in game time down to under an hour in Super Metroid. I'm pretty happy about that.

https://killscreen.com/articles/falling-through-a-100-million-stories-in-gravity-rush-remastered/ Really great article about Gravity Rush's director (director of Silent Hill), and his 1970s French comic influences.

Unpopular opinion time: I not only consider Kanye West to be one of my favorite rappers of all-time — yes, I'm being serious — but he's one of the very few people in the world whom I'd consider to be a role model. I truly wish he would notice me one d
