YES! Finally finished the school year. Jesus, this year was such a drag. Doesn’t matter anymore though since now its time for my vacation! This summer will be pretty sweet as well since I’ll be going to the Dominican Republic, haven’t been there since i was like 12 or something(for reference I’m now 20). Plus Smash comes out this summer as well which makes me more hype(pls Nintendo, no one in the US considers September part of summer so don’t release it that late). For those who are still in school good luck with your last few days and good luck on your finals as well.
One thing that I know a lot of my fellow gamers do is imagine game ideas. Now I want to be a game programmer so I sometimes(although I admit its very rarely) watch youtube tutorials and program a game idea I’ve been thinking about for a while. What idea its is you ask? Waluigi’s Misadventures! Now we all know Mario and Luigi, and Mario’s opposite, Wario. Wario loves money, but what about Waluigi? I don’t follow these characters all that well so I decided to think it is what Waluigi wants the most? The answer I came up with is fame! Think about it, he’s always playable in Mario spin offs, like all of them, but has never had his own game. He wants to be number 1 at EVERYTHING and wants to be known, he couldn’t care less about the money. So how would the game play out? It’s an RPG and takes place in a movie studio. Waluigi is starring and directing a movie that glorifies him. Mario and Luigi aren’t in the game that way it doesn’t take away from Waluigi but it does mention them but undermines both. Wario is one of the villains as well, since Waluigi is always forgotten over Wario… So yea, it’s a cheeky rpg about Waluigi. what do you guys think?
I was always planning on owning a Wii U but the question was always “when?” Will it be when Smash comes out(the latest I’d possibly get a Wii U) or will there be a game that can convince me to buy it before Smash? It looks like Nintendo has convinced me to get it earlier then I originally intended with their Mario Kart 8 bundle. Doesn’t hurt that I had $200 worth of gift cards at Best Buy so I only ended up spending $158. Which is a pretty solid deal, Now I’ll have a Wii U, Wii mote plus controller, a wheel(which I couldn’t care less about), Mario Kart 8 and also a digital copy of Pikman(ew, Nintendo digital. Whatever, it’s free!) 3! It’s a good thing that Mario Kart 8 is actually a physical disc though because if it was a code for the eshop I would’ve just kept waiting. Until Nintendo makes content tied to accounts instead of systems I flat-out refuse to buy anything on the eShop, even if its only 1 dollar. One issue I might have with Mario Kart 8 though is the cast!! Oh please God tell me there are still hidden characters, where’s my Dry Bowser and & Dry Bones!? But besides that I’m really looking forward to May 30th. Maybe after a few weeks I’ll pick up a pro controller and also Super Mario 3D World.
Damn man, I just got an email today from the Behemoth telling me that since I participated in the BattleBlock Theater beta I’ll be receiving a copy of the game FOR FREE!! That’s so freaking cool of them, especially since I had full intentions of buying the game anyway. Stay awesome Behemoth, you continue to prove my opinon that you guys are the best indie developers. If you’re interested in buying BattleBlock Theater, which I highly recommend it released May 15th on Steam and is already out on Xbox 360.
I haven’t posted anything in a while because in all honesty nothing interesting has been going on in my life(social and gaming). I have playing Smite recently, might post an impression on that in a week or two. But besides April is ending pretty soon which means E3 is 1 month closer(when is it, mid June?) so I figured I’d make a short list of games I’d like to see during E3. Now obviously I want to see new IPs but since I can’t predict them this list is mostly stuff we know of or exist in some shape or form, also if anyone is reading this and remembers the games I wanted to see at E3 2013 knows the two obvious games that’ll be on this list so I’ll just get those out-of-the-way now.
God dammit Bethesda, I know you’re making the freaking game, let us see it already! Also a few other notes, NO XBOX EXCLUSIVE DLC! & no cross gen, only current gen systems please. I’m hoping the gameplay improves on Fallout New Vegas instead of going on Fallout 3(which was the one developed by Bethesda). Few other things I want to see on Fallout 4 is a better third person camera, I like to see my character, after all, what’s the point of having a customized character if I can’t even see him/her, hell, I can’t even see their feet. Which is another thing I hope Fallout 4 has, letting me see my character’s body when I look down. There are some mods that already do this on PC but it would be nice to have that in there day one. Also no dumbing down, please. Skyrim was really shallow because it was dumb downed to appeal to casuals. It’s so bad in fact that personally I find the vanilla gameplay absolutely unplayable, it’s extremely boring.
Super Smash Bros 4
Obvious is obvious. This is the game that will make me purchase a Wii U. I want this game to be playable at E3, which will most likely happened for at least the 3DS version since that version comes out in the Summer(fingers crossed that it’s no later than mid July). Also for the love of god give me my Mewtwo! And like I’ve mention in my previous post I still wan’t to see Ridley just to have someone who’s the complete opposite of Little Mac(Huge and is only good in the air). Now with the two obvious ones out the way lets start with games I haven’t mentioned before. Continue reading
