I write about video games and horror-related items. Also, I wear a hat.
I guess I should mention that things have improved from "crap" to "stuff".
40 Winks- Finished it. It improved quite a bit after the first area, becoming more challenging and sporting more elaborate levels. Still not a fan of the camera and a few other small nuances (the hit detection, slipping off of platform edges). I'll probably review it in the future.
Scarface: The World is Yours- ...has also improved. It's tough getting the ball rolling, but once you do it becomes pretty addictive. This game doesn't waste its time with too many meaningless mini-games. It's all about striking deals, selling drugs, making a huge profit, and buying more junk so you can gain reputation (aka experience). Gain higher levels and you can buy more junk and deck out your mansion.
There are two arcade games I'd love to re-review: Capcom vs. SNK: Millennium Fight 2000 and Operation Wolf. The only problem is I feel I need to brush up on these games in order to review them. Arcades are a dying thing throughout the US (probably even the world), and there are only a handful left in Spokane. Finding either of these games will be difficult, especially with Operation Wolf.
Some might tell me to just MAME them, but from what I understand, Capcom vs. SNK still isn't compatible with MAME, and I want to play an actual cabinet of Operation Wolf to get the true feel of the game.
Wish me luck. I'll be checking some various arcades around the area. I'm betting Wonderland still has CvsSNK.
No, I'm not admitting to fecalphelia. I just started my ten day vacation ("staycation" they call it, since I'm not going anywhere special) and I want to celebrate by braying about the mostly ho-hum titles I'm picking at.
1. Scarface: The World is Yours (PS2)- My opinion on this game changes every time I play it. It's an open-world game that's light on gimmicky side games, but features more of a money-making aspect. I've decided I don't like a few things about it:
-Not obeying some traffic laws = cops come after you.
ABOUT TIME! Urgh... The final dungeon was horrendous. Now, I can (hopefully) review it and forget the game exists.
So I've been playing Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. I'm sure you've heard me grumble about it here and there. My main complaint is the astounding level of rehash. At one point near the end they run out of FFIV bosses to throw at you and start tossing bosses from other FF games out, like Death Gaze (formerly Doomgaze) from FFVI.
This is my Sea Monster review, being reposted before it goes into the void.
A game's name should stand out, and Sea Monster definitely does that. It might strike up thoughts of a vicious Liopleurodon, it's mouth drawn open in a deafening roar, power metal booming in the background. Let's also not forget the lightning, lots of lightning. Unfortunately, the game is not as awesome as its distinct and succinct name. Rather, it's a genre exercise that should not surprise anyone as to why it's so obscure. It's worth taking a short look at, and then putting away. The controls are the saving grace to a game with shoddy graphics, familiar gameplay, and rehashed sounds.
-Pac-Man (Atari 2600): Here comes the pain...
-Area 51 (arcade): I'm still searching for what I feel about this game these days. The novelty has kind of worn off, but I still have very fond memories of this game. I just have to not let them cloud my judgment.
-Bart Simpson's Escape from Camp Deadly: Eye crumbs!
