Title: Hope! (Hard Corps: Uprising)
Posted: January 13, 2011 (12:57 AM)
Arcade Mode is a harder game mode in which the power-up shops are removed and the players' life gauges are absent.

For the first time, I'm actually kinda looking forward to the game.

Title: So I was led into believing Wasabi was an action movie
Posted: January 07, 2011 (11:31 PM)

It's a cute movie... but still, don't watch it expecting tons of action. There's, like, 5-ish minutes worth of that stuff.

Seeing Jean Reno play DDR was fucking priceless, though. The arcade segment easily would have been the lamest part in the movie if he didn't dance.

Title: This blew my mind...
Posted: December 28, 2010 (02:13 PM)
I was browsing the Wii cataclog (a misspelling on my part, but a very fitting one) on Amazon last night, and I found a game called The Monkey King: The Legend Begins, looked at some pics... and realized it was a friggin remake of Chuuka Taisen/Cloud Master!

Of all the things to remake, why this? o_o


Sin & Punishment (Wii) and World of Goo (Wii) are still up for grabs!

Title: HO! HO! HO! HO! Free Game Downloads!
Posted: December 25, 2010 (03:03 PM)
Free game downloads! Pick one, but only one person gets to pick one game. I'll HG mail you the code.


-Sin & Punishment (think it requires a Classic Controller)

-World of Goo


Also, I'm not sure if these codes I'm giving away are country sensitive, the site only told me that I needed the specific services to use the codes.

It also had this in the product info area: "Currently, this item is available only to customers located in the United States and who have a U.S. billing address." But it sounds like it's only talking about purchasing the codes.

If the codes ultimately don't work for some strange reason, well, keep in mind that you didn't lose any money, unlike me. XD

Title: Is $30 REALLY too much for Super Mario All Stars Wii?
Posted: December 19, 2010 (02:27 PM)
When the game was announced for release in the US with a 30 dollar price tag, I didn't think much about it, and I still don't. However, once the game eventually came out, I've read nothing but complaints about about how gamers feel ripped off, and how $30 is overkill for something like this. When you compare the games in the collection to the NES versions on Virtual Console, it's about $20, and when you throw in the included CD and booklet in the limited edition, $30 sounds like a reasonable price.

But that's just me. I'm curious to think what everyone here thinks about it. Is $30 really too much, or are people just being greedy?

Title: The Expendables sucked.
Posted: December 13, 2010 (01:21 PM)
From all the commercials and trailers I kept seeing of the movie, I thought it was going to be something like Commando times five people. I finally got to see the movie last night, and I was disappointed. The first half-ish part of the movie had a lot of talking, but it felt pointless. Some would call it character development, but halfway through the movie, I still didn't give a crap about half the cast. There was even this lame subplot about an ex-girlfirend being abused by her new bf, which reached an obvious conclusion with no flare. Even when most of the action got underway during the second half, it was still pretty meh. There were some cool moments, yeah, but the problem was that the good guys were nearly indistinguishable during the battle. Most of the time, you could switch one person with another in a scene, and it wouldn't matter.

The thing that sucked the most? No one died. I'm not talking about the bad guys that get their's in the end, but every "good guy" ends up surviving. It pretty much sucks out a lot of suspense and tension when you realize no "big name" characters are going to be killed, no matter what.

I heard an Expendables 2 is already in the making. It better not suck as much as the first.

Sonic Colors

Interestingly, writing this review gave me the craving to review Sonic the Hedgehog 2. I think it was all that talk about what makes a good Sonic game and whatnot, and somehow it reminded me that Sonic 2 was my least favorite (I didn't say bad!) "main" Genesis Sonic game. I doubt I'll do a review now, but maybe in a few months.

Contra: Legacy of War

I actually wanted to review this game for a long time (specifically the Saturn version), because the 3D glasses gimmick piqued my interest. The problem was finding a copy with a decent price. I mean, can you imagine throwing away a lot of money on a game that you've heard is really bad? Finally, a week ago, I found a reasonably-priced copy on ebay for the PlayStation. There was also a copy with 3D glasses for the Saturn, but it was in the 50/60 dollar range. Screw that. So a week later, a review materialized. Now that that's out of the way, I can finally play my copy of Sonic Colors.

I might submit some codes for LoW, too, since the ones that were posted on GameFAQs are somewhat incorrect. The one for the nine lives input isn't complete. Also, there's a mention of playing a mini-game version of the original Contra in the second stage, but I haven't found it yet. Makes me wonder if this was something that was included in the Saturn version, instead.

Yes, this is my review for Halloween. I was originally going to review Ghosthunter for the PS2, and even bought the game two weeks in advance, but circumstances of the week forced me to review something shorter. So you get manly thongs, instead. :D

Title: Speaking of Bethesda...
Posted: October 29, 2010 (12:26 PM)
Just found out that Shinji Mikami's new studio, Tango Gameworks, has been bought by Bethesda. Link with silly Shinji trying to look cool.

Well, this was a surprise for me... since I still thought he was with PlatinumGames. Goes to show how much I keep up with video game news >_>. Seems like a smart move on Bethesda's part, considering Mikami has a knack for making very interesting games.

Title: Another Stupid Comments Entry: 2 & 3 Return Edition
Posted: October 27, 2010 (03:16 PM)
So I was browsing around Amazon today, looking for interesting deals, and I decided I wanted to check out the "reviews" for THotD 2 & 3 Return. This was a mistake:

"I picked up this turd new at a wholesale club for $10 last weekend. What a total piece of garbage and a complete waste of my hard earned money. The graphics are 1980's grade, the talking tracks are infantile and stupid, NO SAVE ability," (1 star rating)

1980s?! Jesus, you make me feel old...

"This game allows no saves so it is frustrating trying to advance. Much prefer "Overkill."" (2 star rating)

"I really really liked this game and the only downside would be the fact that when you died,you had to start over..."

"If you like old arcade games then this game would be great for you. It is fun sometimes but I get tired of playing the same board over and over because you cant save it." (3 star)

"After recently buying House of Dead Overkill- which was a lot of fun and you could save the game, we bought House of Dead 2&3. After getting quite a ways into the game and losing all my credits, found out you can't save the game. Everytime you play the game and you lose all your credits, you have to start from the very beginning. That is very frustrating if you get a long ways into the game and find out you have to start over from the beginning all the time."

Notice a pattern in the last four comments? I never would have imagine that the biggest complaint people would have with the collection is the inabilty to save. The games' aren't even that long. I bet if a save feature WAS included, the same people would likely moan that the games end too quickly. No wonder arcades became extinct.

"I paid about 32 bucks for it, and my friend and I nearly beat HOTD2 in about 15 minutes."

The first stage alone takes about 5 minutes to complete, so I'm pretty sure he's full of himself.

"I like old school games just as much as the next person, but I forgot how horrible the graphics looked; when compared to Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles."

Because comparing the graphics of old games to that of a recent game and expecting them to match is always a smart way to judge something. This reminds me of the time in a GameFAN issue that one of the reviewers stated that the graphics for Space Harrier doesn't hold a candle to Panzer Dragoon 1. What the hell?

"I thought they didn't send the game, but they sent the wrong game. I have some Sonic game for my Nintendo Wii." (5 star rating)

Title: Odd how I just realize this now (Contra: Hard Corps review)
Posted: October 26, 2010 (03:43 PM)
So I just rewatched my badassical video of Contra: Hard Corps again, and I just noticed that Deadeye Joe was never inside the crab vehicle boss! You'd think all those times I've played that part I would notice. I guess I was too caught up in the action that I just assumed he was inside, since he takes control of a lot of devices throughout the game.

I've edited that section of the review a bit, and I hope that didn't take away from the overall feel of the review from readers. :|

With 6 player co-op online.

Yay? Nay? I've only played a tiny bit of it in the arcades back then, so I don't have a solid opinion of the game. It had some crazy dialogue, though...

Every other website I visit worked properly, though. However, since I knew from the previous experience that it seemed to be on my end, I decided to do some research this time.

Turns out, all I had to do was change to a different DNS server. x_X
