Random Game Idea: Waluigi’s Misadventures

 

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?

Woo, Beat Another Game!

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 @_@.

Best & Worst Game Awards

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 😛

What I Want to see in E3

Well folks, E3 is tomorrow and many of us are excited and worried about it. Will Sony fuck up as badly as Microsoft did? Hopefully not. Will Microsoft’s games outweigh their anti consumer tactics? Not in a million years, they can go on stage and say Fallout 4 will be exclusive to XB1 forever and I’d still tell ’em to fuck off. Also we’ll finally get our first glimpse at the next installment of Smash Bros, hopefully we also see the 3DS version as well which the the creator of Smash Bros has said he wanted to add RPG elements to that version to make it feel more personal so I’m be interested to see how that turns out. So, without further adieu here are the things I want to see at E3:

1. Sony doesn’t do some bullshit anti consumer tactics. – Do I really have to explain? If they do that I guess the only next-gen console I’ll own will be a Wii U

2. Pokemon Snap 2 – Seriously, with the Wii Pad? come on, it just makes far too much sense to not be in development.

3. Vita games – Not ports, not spin offs. Original games(like Gravity Rush) or new installments(like how Birth by Sleep is a main entry in the KH series.) I still don’t understand why Sony completely ignored the Vita last year, hopefully they don’t do the same this year. Also let’s hope they announce a hefty price drop and some bundles, It would be nice if the Vita picked up some steam so more 3rd party publishers jumped on board.

4. PS4 doesn’t charge to play online. – I don’t mind if that extra stuff is behind a pay wall but I shouldn’t have to pay to use my router.

5. Fallout 4 – Please not a modified Fallout 3 engine like what Skyrim used. Please, use a brand new stable engine that is also able to accomplish much more. Don’t make modders do your job.
Also none of the Microsoft exclusive shit, fuck that crap.
6. Steam Workshop like feature on consoles. – Seriously, mods are the fucking best. One of my top 3 favorite features about gaming on PC. I don’t know how it’ll work, but Sony might be able to do it with Steam’s own workshop. After all, we have seen steam integrated on the PS3 with Portal 2 so it might be possible, or so I assume.

7. New 3DS model with a built-in 2nd analog nub. – Why this wasn’t part of the original design and has to be sold as a separate accessory is beyond me. Touch screen cannot substitute a second analog nub.

8. A reason to own a Wii U. – I played a Wii U this weekend. It was garbage. I didn’t like it, games sucked(I played NintendoLand, ZombiU, and New Super Mario Bros.), UI was also trash, and there doesn’t appear to be anything of interest coming out anytime soon with the exception of Smash Bros, which leads me to the next thing.

9. Mewtwo In Smash Bros. – Why would you take him out in the first place? :/ Whats next, going to replace Lucario with Zoroark or whatever Pokemon will replace Zoroark in the next Pokemon gen? Just give me the original badass back, please. Give him some actual good moves while you’re at it.

10. New IPs. – Sure sequels are great, but I also love some new IPs as well, I’m sure we all feel the same way about that.

Tomorrow I’ll post my impressions of the first day of E3, I might post different ones for each show or I might just do one at the end of the day and lump them all into one post depending how motivated I am. 🙂 Until tomorrow, friends.

Sonic Generations Short Review

Sonic Generations tries to do two things, please old school 2D Sonic fans and also appeal to 3D Sonic fans. Personally, I much prefer 3D Sonic as it has a much stronger emphasis on speed than 2D Sonic, but hey what do I know? The only 2D sonic games I enjoyed were the Sonic Advance series so I guess it isn’t my place to say if 2D sonic is boring or not. But anyway, Both Sonic’s world collide and are broken up so now you must race through nine different worlds to put them back together. each of the world’s has two acts, one for modern Sonic and another for old school sonic, making a total of 18 stages, plus a bunch of challenges that I couldn’t possibly care less about. All the stages are from previous Sonic games so you’ll be visiting Green Hill Zone all up to a stage from Sonic Colors. By the way, City Escape from Sonic Adventure 2 is here with a remix of the original song. Hands down my favorite stage in the entire game.

The music in the game is great, I’m not the hugest Sonic fan so I can’t compare them to their original versions excluding for songs in Sonic Adventure 2 but they all sound really great to me. The visuals are also very stunning which is helped by a good art direction. If you played Sonic Unleashed or Colors you should already know how Modern sonic plays(awesome). Old school sonic plays like as you would expect, although while I wasn’t the biggest fan of the original sonic games, Sega still hasn’t quite perfected his feel. I don’t know how to put it but he still plays a bit off. For example, he’s a bit slippery even when he’s not running at full speed which is quite frustrating. Also the final boss is a huge let down, its poorly implemented and very boring, without spoiling anything all you got to do is hold the dash button the entire fight. Also I beat the game in four hours so there really isn’t much main content. If you’re into challenge levels you’ll most likely finish it in about seven or so hours since even those aren’t all that challenging. If you’re itching for some Sonic I’d recommend this game, although not at its current price since there isn’t all that much content to justify the price, see if you can find it for $5 or something.

A Game I Totally Forgot About

Yesterday while spending some time with the family I went into a Gamestop and started glancing around. I saw some of the typical games that I want but patiently wait for a price drop(Catherine, Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, Persona 4 Golden, etc.) but while looking I noticed some games that I really wanted to play but was waiting for a price drop and when it did finally drop, I just forgot about it completely. One that really caught my eye was Rock Band 3, a franchise that I always had my eyes on but never got to it simply for 1 reason: the goddamn cost it takes to get the full experience.

When I saw the drums I thought to myself “holy shit, I totally need this game,” but my god does it cost an arm and a leg simply for plastic that is only good for 1 game(not to mention the space it takes.) Anyway, Rock Band 3 was hands down the one that I really wanted to get because of the keyboard. But like I said earlier, I wasn’t about to spend like +$120 on a single game, so I never got to it. Plus, it didn’t help that I didn’t have any friends who played it so it would pretty much only be me playing with random people online which is what I normally do but when I play co-op games I prefer to play them with people I actually know. Unfortunetly the drums are still way too expensive and with this console generation ending I feel that I’ll never get a chance to try this game out. It’s too bad I don’t got the cash to be throwing around to get the instruments, I bet this game is a lot of fun.
