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 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
Boy oh boy what a Direct that was. I have to admit, was I looking forward to SSB4? Yea, of course, but, I wouldn’t say that I was excited about it. That has completely changed after that Direct though, I’m beyond hype. The only way that I could possibly be more excited about it is if they showed Mewtwo with a complete overhaul(because like I’ve stated previously, I do love me some Mewtwo but there is no denying that he was complete ass in Melee). Speaking of Mewtwo, Sakurai, you son of a bitch, can’t believe I fell for that bait and switch with Greninja. More on Greninja on a little later though. Can you believe that we’ll be able to play Smash THIS Summer?! Holy shit, man, that’s insane. I hope to God though that by Summer 2014 they don’t mean late August – any time in September. Seriously, fuck that; might as well release in the Fall if that’s what they mean. School starts at that time, I don’t want to be in school when it comes out cause then how the hell am I supposed to fully enjoy it? Hoping its July at the latest.
At first I was confused as to why they’d release the 3DS version first but after thinking about it, it makes perfect sense. Not to say that the 3DS version is gimped or anything because saying that would be a disservice to it, but at the same time let’s be real; the main event is the Wii U version. The 3DS version coming out in the Summer is great for many reasons, satisfies our SSB needs, releases in a season that for some stupid reason very few games come out(most games should come out in the Summer, that’s when I have the most free time. Screw the holiday season, I only get a week off.) so there’s little to no competition, and also it won’t cannibalize the Wii U version’s sales(because after all, there are way more 3DS owners than Wii U, hell, most folks don’t even own a Wii U), which will be coming out during Winter(bet money its late November). So this time around there’ll be no transformation characters, instead all transformations now get their own slot, which is a great move on their part. Continue reading
Gah ever since I bought Pokemon X & Y(which I was so excited for I went out of my way to go down to Manhatten before school started to get it three days early) I haven’t played any other game. I bought Killzone Mercenaries and the game is awesome but then I got GTA5 so I didnt play it as much anymore. I’m halfway through GTA but then Pokemon came out… All my time has been dedicated to Pokemon since then. I even bring my 3DS(the special edition pokemon one which I recently purchased just for this game) to school everyday just so I can play some more on my ride to and from school. Haven’t touched my Vita and I rarely play my ps3 now since Pokemon. The game is just soooo awesome, plus all the starters are amazing. I dare say these are the best starters we’ve ever had. My only issue with the starters is Delphox or however its spelt, the design is too feminine to work for both genders imo, but its still good imo.
Game is so great and for the first time ever I actually won an online match(quite a few of them actually)!! I gotta put the game down for a while though. I got a test coming up this Monday for my computer class, I can’t fail this since we only get three tests including the final so this one test counts for 33% of my grade ;(. pretty annoying since most of it is basically remembering a bunch of computer codes off the top of your head.
The last two years of E3 have been pretty underwhelming, I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels that way. However, with new consoles coming to us later this year we got to see plenty of new games, and even new IPs. Some games were pretty boring(I’m looking at you, Ryse) but a lot other games look very impressive. One thing I noticed with a lot of next-gen games is that a lot seem to be going open world. Something I welcome with open arms, I love open world games, hopefully these games are packed with content, and easter eggs as well. For once in a long time I enjoyed a majority of the games, like at least 8 out of every 10; I was very impressed. There were three games that stuck out to me the most though, these three are presented in no particular order. Continue reading
Some gameplay that I found on a forum. It looks like Mario is keeping that shitty FLOOD move from Brawl. Lets hope its actually useful this time around. The game is looking absolutely gorgeous, I thought the art direction in Brawl was amazing but this takes the cake, I mean sure it isn’t as detailed as Brawl, but HD man, and the lighting is stunning.
Nintendo’s new strategy of skipping E3 and only doing a Direct that only they’re hosting worked out awful. It lagged through all the good stuff but played perfectly fine for the garbage like the Wii Fit and stuff. Huge Pokemon fan so I was very excited to see a new type revealed, and also older Pokemons are getting retyped to Fairy as well so that’s awesome. I didn’t get to see a lot of the petting stuff but that looks like something kids would love, I couldn’t care less for that though. I was disappointed that Retro’s next game is Donkey Kong, I was hoping for a new IP or something, didn’t a Donkey Kong port just happened like last month? Also the new 3D Mario game is very disappointing. When I first saw it I assumed it was a 3DS game, instead it’s for the Wii U. It looks fun but I don’t think it belongs on the Wii U, I wanted to see a more open Mario game like Galaxy and 64, not a sequel to a 3DS game.
The impression I get from the Wii U is that its basically a more expensive 3DS that lacks the portable advantage of the 3DS. The only game that really wowed me was obviously Smash Bros. Oh my god, the beauty. Finally Smash in HD, hopefully its playable at E3 and we get to see some gameplay clips. I was very surprised by Mega Man, that was a awesome surprise. I also loved that wrestling ring stage they showed, that was fucking awesome. It looks like they teased the return of boss battles at the end as well when they showed Mega Man getting ready to fight Yellow Devil. The Direct didn’t make me feel like I’m missing anything good on the Wii U, the good stuff is coming in 2014 so I don’t need it any time soon. Plus, there was no price drop, the Wii U is only $50 more expensive then the ps4. Speaking of that I just remembered that Sony didn’t announce a price drop for the Vita. Overall the show felt like it played it safe, too safe.
Edit: A new character was announced for Smash Bros… Wii Fit Trainer… No, seriously… What a fucking waste, hopefully shes the only “joke” character and they’re just getting that crappy character out the way.
