The Search for Booty Episode I

I'm always striving to create new content that might be interesting to the Destructoid crowd. In doing so, I've always had issue with writing up stories about the news or just rehashing something somebody else has written about already.

Today, I hope to introduce to my faithful audience, a new feature that I think is pretty unique and reader friendly. Let's not forget that it could possibly open me up to harassment and comments, after all that's one thing I really think keeps Dtoid so fresh...user content.

I introduce to you: The Search for Booty Episode I, The Devil May Arc the Gungrave

Finally, rounding out my quest for booty was a game that I always wanted to try but couldn't force myself to pick up thanks to the skewed reviews I was reading about it, Gungrave. You know what I found out? This game is pretty damn fun! Maybe it’s the fact that it feels like an old school arcade shooter because you only really need to worry about hitting one button over and over again, or that the graphics are really well done for an anime based game. The voice acting is top notch and left in Japanese like all anime should be, and the story is just your standard one guy against a criminal organization with guns that never need to be reloaded. Gungrave is quite possibly one of the best shmup type games that I've played in years. The best part is that it only cost me a whole whopping $7.99.

I rate my purchases as follows:

Gungrave -- gets a 7 for its mindless killing and fun factor, exactly the kind of game that I was looking for this weekend.

Ark the Lad -- another 7 for its awesome soundtracks and almost believable characters with good voice acting.

Devil May Cry 2 -- hits the bottom with a 4 due to its uninspired sequel-ness, and derivative gameplay that just left me wanting.

Probably the best part of hitting all of my local Gamestop locations is that I'm starting to get noticed as 'that guy', you know the guy who buys anything and has very vocal opinions. At the register this time, I talked with the manager and a really bitchy employee about collections and why I keep on collecting. The discussion quickly dissolved into how sad I am that I still have all my anime on VHS instead of DVD and what a pain in the ass it is when new formats come out. Oh well, c'est la vie...I've been around since LPs and Cassettes and I'm sure that I will be around for other numerous generational changes. Luckily they all have a good home with me, where I will take good care of them all, to the end of my days. Thanks for reading!

Hey robots, I'm Excremento, but you cool and old skool Dtoiders know that already. I've been a videogamer for as long as I can remember. I have well over 27 years of video game experience that I rely on daily, and a near encyclopedic memory of gaming starting with the Commodore 64 and ending with whatever is the current hotness.
