Countdown to NMH2: A Bombastic Intro

Hello! Welcome! Bienvenue! Konnichiwa!

Over the next two weeks I will be writing articles pertaining to and building up towards my most anticipated game of the first half of 2010: No More Heroes 2.

You can expect a good many posts over the next smattering of days, ranging from biographical to psychological to philosophical as I dive down the rabbit hole and attempt to come back up with knowledge for the world.

It's mostly like this.

And with that, Suda 51 defined what kind of man he was, how he thought, and how he was going to make video games his own way. However people reacted to the ending, they all reacted to it, and I think that's the major thing that spurred on the rest of his career, seeing how people can react so diversely, and so emotionally different, to the same thing.

And that's the end to part one. Please check in soon as part two will start to delve into the real difficult areas of Suda's career, and try to make sense of the messages conveyed therein. BE THERE!

About Mooksone of us since 8:09 PM on 04.18.2009

My real name is Mark. But my name is also Mooks. It's short for Mookie. I want to be a writer, a director, a musician, a game designer, an actor, and a constantly awesome person. Most days I forget I'm a senior in college.

I have been gaming since I was a newborn, when my uncle put an unplugged NES controller in my hands. In some ways, I've never let go. From there I took the Nintendo/PC path down gaming lane. I had a Genesis, but the only games I had were Sonic games. My favorite game growing up was Earthbound.

I am obsessed with story in video games and am always looking for the next game that makes me laugh, cry, or think. Although I also love a good mindless shooter or puzzle game here and there.
On the topic of best stories in games, I believe these titles, in no particular order, showcase what I believe to be indicative of our medium moving forward as respectable artworks.

Mother (1 2 and 3)
Metal Gear Solid (particularly 2 and 3)
Anything touched by Tim Schafer
Shadow of the Colossus
Silent Hill
Eternal Darkness
Half-Life series

More to come as I think of them.

But yeah, that's it for now. See ya around D-Toid.
