31 Days: Day 29 - Syndrome


Hello everyone and welcome to the 29th installment of 31 days. Only a few days remain. This one will be a quick one as I have tons upon tons of work to complete. Today’s Song is:


Main theme – Alien Syndrome


While I chose this track, I actually want to talk about the reboot they had on the Wii. While I love the original the Wii version will always hold a special place in my heart. I got the game for my birthday and tried playing it with my Dad, but he really couldn’t grasp it so we didn’t get far, still fun initially. I shelve the game for a while only to see my brother and cousin playing it later. So I decided to jump in because I would now have people to play with (up to 4 players). We had an absolute blast with the game, exploring every crevice, killing every alien on the levels, customizing out characters, and enjoying the story. Many an inside joke was created from that experience. We would go on to play the game over the span of a year or so. This was because we would only play the game when all of us were together. Those are the days I’ll keep with me as the years roll by and we do our thing, living our lives. I know this has nothing super spooky to it, but the game does fit thematically. It also makes me miss the wonderful days of couch co-op. Playing alone online is very different from playing with friends next to you. If they ever made a re-master/reboot of the series again I would hope they follow the Wii’s example and craft another fine experience, just a little more polished and shiny looking.

About Agent9one of us since 12:45 PM on 04.13.2010

Who is Agent9? The not so secret agent of the destructoid community.

A Few things about me

- I'm almost finished with my degree in computer science and I plan on going into independent development and freelancing once I'm done.

- I can be very cynical, but I do try to be positive or curb my negativity. In spite of this I'm actually very jovial in person and I don't get mad often. I would dare say I'm quite happy, even when things seem bleak. I simply don't like industry Bullshit and I'm not one to stand for it, even if it's a game I like.

- I host a series annually called 31 Days where I post 1 horror related or themed video game song a day for the month of october. During this time I also provide keys for games (free of course) to any reader observant enough to find them.

- I've been a member of destructoid since 2010, and a lurker long before then. As such I've seen many people both come and go. Such is the natural order of things.

- I enjoy Art and draw in my spare time

- I also enjoy theatre and films. I especially like Horror movies (both good and bad ones).

- I go camping once or twice a year. I would go out more but my allergies tend to get in the way.

- I don't drink, which may be a surprise to some. I might make a joke or two about it but I stay away from alcohol for my own personal reasons, though you can feel free to drink a pint on my behalf any time you'd like.

This is a commission I had done for me by Inquisitive Ravenclaw. You should check out his site if you like the following piece

I also got a musical piece made for me by the incredible Alphadeus. A little history behind this:

My musical piece came as part of the Songs for Gamers album DLC pack 02. Alphadeus has been making songs for the members of the destructoid community for years already. This past year he opened submissions and I applied. For my meagre efforts I received this lovely piece:

You can find him on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFs2UhJYPVITYWCiqMk-z3w

He also has other venues listed on his profile here, take a look if you are so inclined:

The community is full of people with all kinds of talent and I'm very pleased to be a part of it along with all of you (yes, you too fair reader).
