Tubaticisms 5-30-10: Girl Gamer Edition



Red Dead- This game is mad righteous. I've been enjoying the single player A BUNCH, both roaming around doing random crap and following the really well performed story.

One of the things that really strikes me about Red Dead's female love interest is that, at least so far, she's a McGuffin. John Marston's doing all this for the sake of his loving wife, whom we see never even a picture of at least up until partway through Mexico. I really hope it stays that way. Its good to give the active, romantic love subplot/ motivator a rest.

In addition, I really appreciate how not-OMG-HAWT Bonnie MacFarlane is. Not to say she isn't attractive. But its nice to see the art direction in this game skewing toward earthy character models, as opposed to airbrushed vixen that the marketing department gives you on the back of the map.

Red Ring- Oh hey, I got my second red ring! My wife is especially pissed about the whole situation, but I assured her that we were more likely to have this problem than to never have it. My Mom-in-Law has been volunteered to help me find a suitable coffin and get this thing shipped out, since I'm eligible for Red Ring warranty extension. Watcha gonna do, yeah?

Mario Wii and Grizzled Veterans- I had a chance not only to get my hands on Super Mario Bros. Wii for a little bit, but also to spend some quality gaming time with my Best Friend of 20 some years. That last time we got a really good session in was Rogue Squadron III, where they let you run the last edition all in Co-Op. We never blew up and escaped from the Death Star...


What if Commander Video is a woman under there, though?

At any rate, Mario Wii is, as everyone said, a pure blast on Co-Op. My buddy had played some Co-Op with his wife, which in inherently a blast for him. However, the chance to run this game with a fellow NES era vet made the experience all the more amazing. The experience that happens in face to face Co-Op goes a long way to justifying Nintendo's lack of online multiplayer.

Rage Against the Blogging of the Femme- Hey. At least we're not talking about games as art, right?

Players can elect to summon "cartoony" versions of bats, bombs, guns, and flamethrowers. These types of items can be used to destroy objects or even other summoned items (e.g., a club can be used to hit an animal; steak can be attached to a baby to attract lions; rockets can be lobbed at a man).

"Right after getting back to Japan, [Miyamoto] suddenly said: "You know we're including golf now." Apparently he'd stated in an interview that this time round golf shots would be determined by the backswing, even though at that time a golf game didn't exist in any shape or form!"
