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.
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.
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.
I beat Max Payne 3 today, that’s another game off the backlog! Making some progress, brah! Up next is Alan Wake’s American Nightmare. I think I might also play Mario Galaxy 2 while I’m playing the other 3(which you can see on the “What I’m Playing” page.) I sold my Wii ages ago so I play my Wii games on Dolphin, which is a Wii/Gamecube emulator for those who don’t know. It has its pros and cons. Some games have some glitches, for example, both Mario Galaxy games have audio glitches where the background music stops playing after a while and that can be a problem after boss fights as the game will freeze, that sucks cause the little music I’ve heard from the game is actually pretty cool. On the other hand though, you can play games in sweet, sweet HD. Let me just say that there’s a HUGE difference once the game is in HD. I recommend giving the emulator a shot if your PC can handle it. You can even use a Wii mote with the emulator too if you want, I prefer using my MLG PS3 controller though.
Oh yeah, I got some good news about my problem with school if anyone’s interested. I fixed the problem with the class they were saying I was missing over the phone so I was able to save myself the long ride home, and also I got an email from Hunter College telling me I got in. It’s not the school I want but if I don’t hear anything from Brooklyn College within the next two weeks I’m just going to settle with Hunter. I want to stop worrying about school as soon as possible so I can start enjoying my Summer vacation and also get an idea of what my schedule will be like in the Fall so I can get a job that’ll play nice with my schedule.
Well, until tomorrow my friends! I’m going to play a bit of Fallout: New Vegas, even though it’s a glitch fest it’s one of my favorite games, it’s that good. Speaking of which, I decided I’m going to start my best and worst games of the generation sometime this week, but I’ll only be doing the negative side first, I want to play The Last of Us and see if I should put it on my list as best something on my list since all I hear is praise for the game. So make sure to look out for that! Night, everyone; it’s gonna be 12am here in NYC and I’m getting sleepy @_@.
With this generation almost coming to an end I want to make some best and worst of the generation awards. I don’t know if I should wait till September though since that’ll be the month where the last few games I’ll be purchasing this generation are released. Besides, I haven’t gotten around to buying The Last of Us, I hear it’s a nearly flawless game. Then again, I’d rather make the list while the games I’d pick are still fresh in my mind. Maybe I’ll just start by posting the worse games of the generations, I highly doubt any games that I want later on this month will top how bad the games on my list are. Oh yea, tomorrow I’m going to go to school to get my whole graduation shit checked out, hopefully it all goes well; wish me luck.
By the way, the list will contain the games from Wii, DS, PS3, PSP, Xbox 360, PC(games that have come out in like the last 6 years or so). For some reason my friends don’t consider the PSP and DS in the same generation as the WiiPS360, but I do. So yea, till tomorrow or whenever I feel like doing it 😛
