Fishn4Zora's E3 Blog: Nintendo

Hey everyone. Hope you've all had a good E3. I have. ;)

Now how about that Nintendo Press Conference? My initial impressions were poor due to the reappearance of Nintendo's Cammy Dunaway and her smiles, but all doubt was swept away when New Super Mario Bros. Wii was announced. A brand new Mario platformer? YES! ...with four-player co-op? HECK YES!!! Very cool, Nintendo. I can't wait to play through the game with some of my buddies. Hopefully they'll announce Gamecube/Classic Controller support. They also announced a new Golden Sun for DS. Looks good so far, but the trailer doesn't show any battles. :( Still, I've wanted to jump into Golden Sun for a long time now. Maybe this will be a good jumping point.

Alright, now let's talk about the big announcements. Super Mario Galaxy 2 is totally coming, and the trailer showed more of the same Galaxy style platforming but with new concepts. Looking forward to playing some more Galaxy. There was so much potential for more in the original. Hopefully some of the potential will be realised when the game ships in 2010. Metroid: OTHER M was announced. It's a Metroid game developed with Team Ninja at the reigns. Interesting, very interesting. Hopefully Samus won't be playing beach volleyball on Zebes. YOU HEAR ME TECMO?! DON'T RUIN THIS FRANCHISE!

Also of note was the WII VITALITY SENSOR. Dude, I'd be scared to let this thing take my pulse. They might send it to the government or something... :o


Oh it's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year! Fishn4Zora's E3 Blog: Day 0

I'm sure as you all know, E3 is this week! Oh, what a magical time. A time when mortal enemies can put aside their differences and come together in the grand pastime that is gaming. Well, unless they happen to be fanboys of opposing companies. Then there's even more of the daily flame wars. :o

Anyway, Microsoft, EA, and Ubisoft all had their hotly-anticipated conferences yesterday. I give my thoughts on each as follows.

Microsoft's conference was jam-packed. It immediately topped all of last years conferences with great trailers, new tech, and appearances by Kojima, Hawk, and heck, even the Beatles. Well, surprisingly Kojima is not working on a Metal Gear Solid 4 on 360. I think that the Ipod item in MGS4 would to hard to replace with a Zune, but that's just me. :lol: Kojima did announce Metal Gear Solid Rising. Apparently it will star Raiden, and they did NOT announce it as a 360 exclusive. Bittersweet for the Xbox owners. Also Left 4 Dead 2 exists. Is it just me or is Valve bearing on racial with the new Southern motif? Just something I noticed. Alan Wake is a game surprisingly. Seems like a cross between Silent Hill and the Alone in the Dark reboot. I'll keep an eye on it. Those types of games always seem to intrigue me. Oh, yeah a new Halo game was mentioned. Meh

EA's conference was actually pretty interesting this year. A little long-winded, but not to an annoying level. Particular mention goes to Bioware's Knight's of the Old Republic. That trailer gave me goosebumps. Also Mass Effect 2 looks really good.

Oh, Ubisoft, how you disappoint me. One of the MOST BORING conferences ever. The only thing that came out of that conference that interested me was the Red Steel 2 reveal. Red Steel 2 looks amazing with the incredible cell-shaded art. It's beautiful and reminds me of a certain Suda 51 game. ;)

End thoughts: A good day for E3 09. If any of you are wondering what I think of the Natal technology, it reminds me of a little game call Seaman. Remember it? Yeah, that was supposed to be what Milo is being called now. Don't get you hopes up, people!


Broke into a castle. Met a Princess. Learned a Lullaby

Merry Monday, you crazy kids. What a week it has been for me. Busy, busy, busy. Luckily, I managed to squeeze in some Ocarina of Time. Currently, I'm about to go up Death Mountain. The first Death Mountain dungeon is one of my favorites in Ocarina. Why do you like it, Fish? Two reasons, lava and dinosaurs. Need I say more? Ok, fine, I will. The reason I really like the dungeon is because of the great level design. Some of the more interesting puzzels are within the fiery labyrinth.

Other than that not much has been going on gaming wise. Why? Well I met some really cool people recently. Let's just say that they have a beautiful daughter a little yonger than me...


Playing my Ocarina

No, unfortunately I don't own a mystical time traveling flute, but I do have Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time (that's way better imo). Today I decided to begin the quest again as I do pretty much every year. Amazingly every time I play Ocarina of Time it seems to get better with age. Of course, it helps when you're playing it on my 21 inch flatscreen TV/computer monitor (I love you baby, oh so much). I'm halfway through the Great Deku Tree. I'll probably break into the castle next time along with the mandatory visit to Lon Lon Ranch. I wonder if I can handle that wonderful Water Temple again....


One Year and a Day ago...

A lone gamer decided that it was time to finally sign up for Gamespot. Unbeknowest to him the radioactive beams of the internet would transform him into FISHN4ZORA. Fast forward 366 or so days later and the moniker still stands. This is his story... A tale of courage, betrayal, and love's sweet virtues. So vast and- Ah, the heck with it. I ain't got time to write a novel.

Thanks all you crazy people for sticking with me. I've made some great friends over the past year, and a couple of enemies (Haha, jk). Shoutouts go to everyone who comments or at least reads my blog. You have terrible taste in writing, but thanks anyway (Yes that was an awesome joke). Here's to another great year!


It's been a while

Merry Monday, my fellow gamers. Long time no see. Life's been busy. I had finals last week; so I think you can get why I haven't been on. Anyway, I'm sorry if I missed your blogs. Video game wise, I haven't been playing too much. A little Mario Kart, a little Super Mario Galaxy, you know, the usual. So what's going on with you guys?


Fish used Swim! It's not very effective...

Hey guys. Merry, err, Tuesday. Anyway, I did go to the beach on Sunday after church. Lots of fun, but the water was cold (not as cold as the pool though :lol: ). After that my friends and I got Dairy Queen. Mmmmm

I have played some FFIV lately, and so far I'm up to Cecil's return to Baron. I'm hoping my party is strong enough to handle Cagnazzo. He's one of the single hardest bosses in the game.

I'm also still playing Mario Kart Wii online. That game never gets old. :)


My Plans for the Weekend

Hey, people. It's been a long, monotonous week. Luckily though the weekend is here. I plan to sit back and relax. Maybe do some reading. Currently I'm reading C.S. Lewis' masterpeice, The Screwtape Letters. It's a very deep book, but yet, very interesting. Check it out if you want a good book.

Sunday, I may be going with some of my friends to the beach after church. Hopefully it will be warm enough to actually do some swimming. :lol:

Anyway, have a great weekend!


Went Swimming Yesterday...

Merry Monday, Gamespotters. It was an interesting weekend for me. My dad and I took the cover off my pool yesterday. Unfortunately though, a ton of sewage-like liquid had built up on top of the cover, so when we pulled the cover to edge of the pool it got stuck with all of the sewage still inside. Needless to say, it weighed around 200 pounds plus the force of gravity pushing it into the water. The only solution was to get in the water and push it out from underneath. Oh, that water was SO COLD. It got to the point where I couldn't feel my legs anymore. Then I stopped feeling cold at all. Not fun, but at least we got the cover off.

Anyway, I managed to get sick for the fifth time this year. I HATE BEING SICK!! :evil:


No More (Guitar) Heroes

Hey, guys. I took Guitar Hero World Tour back yesterday. I made it through most of the songs on hard, but got stuck on Scream Aim Fire. Still, I can now destroy my friends at Guitar Hero and Rock Band. :D

There's not really a lot to blog about... I guess I'll just write some random stuff, bullet-point style.8)

  • Spring Break is gone and will be missed.
  • I signed up for Last.Fm, and I'm enjoying the site.
  • My one year Gamespot anniversary is less than a month away! I'll have to think of something awesome to do to celebrate.
  • I started Final Fantasy IV again. I'm trying to get through at least most of the game without a guide. Very difficult
  • I found out that CBS has most of the old Twilight Zone episodes on the their website. You can't beat classic Twilight Zone. ;)
  • I need to rework my blogging style. I can't think of terrible puns as quickly as I used to. :lol:
  • Rythm Heaven needs to find it's way into my collection.
  • The weather has been terrible for three days straight. I miss the sun.
  • This blog is over.
