Still Around... But Will Be Quiet

That is as far as blogging goes. I'll still be coming on every now and then, but I'll just be here to update what games I collect and such.

If you are curious to read what blog posts I plan on putting, you can follow me on here.

Anyway, I guess I shall see you guys around! You all have a good one. :)

Star Fox Video Review

After putting it off for a good month now, here is my video review for Star Fox on the Super Nintendo. Polygons galore, everyone! :D And it's all in it's Super FX chip glory. lol

The next review will be Tetris for the Game Boy followed by Vectorman on the Sega Genesis. Let's just hope another cold doesn't come my way. ^^; That's the last thing I want to happen while in the middle of doing a review. lol

Anyway, I want to thank any and all that have seen the first three reviews thus far. :) Over the weekend, I plan on uploading these videos to my other YouTube channel. By that time, you'll all know where I'll be doing these reviews. It's going to take some more time before I have an icon and graphics art for that along with the Twitter and Facebook accounts dedicated for it. Yeah, I'm going to have to set aside some of that time to make it all look decent. At least an idea for what mascots I will try to use for it. :) You'll see soon enough!

Before I head on out, I want you guys to know that I'm still looking for someone to room with during my stay at Morphicon for that first week of next month. If push comes to shove, I may just have to look for a room myself. We'll see.

Have a great day, everyone!

Until next time! Eddie the Wolf signing off!

Bonus Video For Your Enjoyment

Boston and Morphicon

Hey all.

I would like to start off by saying that my thoughts and prayers go out to those involved at the Boston Marathon. I came across some of the raw footage of one of the explosions going off. It's pretty terrifying from what I had seen.

For those that live in the area or have family and friends there, I just hope you are all right.

Anyway, I am hoping to go to Morphicon this year, but I have a question: Anyone live near the Columbus, OH, area? I ask because I may have to look into rooming with someone for that first weekend of May. If any of you don't have a problem having me as a roommate, give me a shout and we'll see.

Hope you guys are doing fine!

Oh! I started my second playthrough of Bioshock Infinite and loving it. :) Highly recommend it! And expect a video review of Star Fox on the SNES real soon along with the announcement of my new YouTube channel.

Catch you all later!

LucasArts and Roger Ebert

Man...

What a week this has been... 

Not too long ago, it has been announced that LucasArts, company obvious known for their Star Wars games but others like Grim Fandango and Monkey Island, was shut down by Disney. From one that has grown up on most of their games, it kind of comes to a shock that something like this has happened.

In case some of you aren't informed, LucasFilm, Ltd. was bought by Disney for $4 billion, and LucasArts is a part of LucasFilm. To some extent, it seemed like a good deal since Disney also owns Marvel. I mean look at how successful The Avengers turned out. I understand that a lot of fans of Cartoon Network's Clone Wars TV series are bumming that the show got canceled, but that is nothing compared to this bit on LucasArts. At least that is how I feel on the matter.

I will admit that LucasArts hasn't put out great games in recent years, and it's kind of unfortunate that it has come to this. For a time, it was nice to see them put out new IPs while not clinging onto existing ones like they did with Star Wars. Still, it would have been nice if they had made another Indiana Jones game before closing their doors.  It's only a matter of time before Star Wars: The Old Republic, an MMORPG developed by BioWare, ends up like Star Wars Galaxies, another MMORPG from Sony Online Entertainment. 

All I can say is that I hope distribution sites like Steam or GOG.com manage to put LucasArts' games for purchase. There are several 90s games I missed out on that I would be eager to buy like Monkey Island, Grim Fandango, Sam and Max, and Day of the Tentacle. I'm a sucker for adventure games. =P I say this because it seems that Disney will allow licensing of LucasArts products. So, there is a chance that these games get distributed. :)

Also, some of you are aware of the passing of film critic Roger Ebert. It came as a bit of a shock since I had grown up watching him with Richard Roeper for a time. It was great to see him analyze films in his own way, and his written reviews kind of made me want to write blogs in a similar fashion. No doubt I won't ever reach that ability like he has, but one can dream. :)

It is unfortunate that he lost the battle to cancer after it had returned to his body. It kind of stinks since he had already lost his voice and a bit of his jaw to thyroid cancer. However, I do commend him for battling it out until the very end. May he rest in peace as he and Gene Siskel continue to review films on the other side. :)

With all this sad events happening, I may attempt to draw something in memorium of Roger Ebert and probably do a video showcasing the LucasArts games I own.

Anyway, I hope everyone is having a great week! Thank you for those that took the time to read. :)

Until next time! Eddie the Wolf signing out. 

Bioshock Infinite Videos

My most anticipated game of the year has arrived! You guys have no idea how long I've waited for this! XD I had hoped that the game would come out on my birthday, but you could say it was worth the wait. :) So far I've been enjoying it a lot! I know I could have finished it in one sitting, but I'm giving it a small break just because. I can't tell how far I am into the game, but I think I might be almost finished with it? I don't know. 

Anyway, I have a few videos to go with my experiences with the game. :) I managed to record the first three to four hours of gameplay, but I have only uploaded four so far. If you want to see more, be sure to visit my YouTube channel. It'll be some time before I have all of the three to four hours of gameplay uploaded though. lol

Bioshock Infinite Midnight Pick Up

Bioshock Infinite Part 1

Bioshock Infinite Part 2

Bioshock Infinite Part 3

Bioshock Infinite Part 4

I apologize for the camcorder quality for I lack the proper equipment to capture the footage as most others on YouTube do. However, it'll have to do until I do some proper research on the matter. ^^;

Hope you guys enjoy the videos though! =D From what I've played I highly recommend it! They did a great job implementing the Elizabeth character to work as your sidekick. :) I enjoy having her along moreso than I did with Alyx from Half-Life 2 (yes, I went there).

Other than that, I want to wish you guys a Happy Easter! I have a drawing in mind for the occasion that I would like to do.

Thanks for reading!

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Video Review

Hey all!

My first video review is finally up! =D I know it's not as great as many others that have been doing this for awhile. Still, I figure I would give it a shot and review a game I'm most familiar with. :)

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Video Review

Like I said this is my first video review, so any and all constructive criticism would be most helpful.

Thanks for looking and enjoy! =D

Feedbackula's Edition on the PS4, Hilarious!

Recently, I've been getting into Gamespot's Feedbackula feature, and they have been hilarious! What I have gotten a kick out of is they way they dramatically read the comments that are inserted in their videos. It makes you wonder how some people can even write these days. ^^;

It's no surprise that the new Feedbackula video is about the PS4 announcement. I admit there were some interesting points made during the video, but just the way people commented made for a good laugh. =P

Feedbackula - PS4mageddon!

Like I said before, I'm rather excited about the PS4. However, that doesn't mean I will get it right away. I am going to have to wait until E3 to see if there will be more to say regarding it. Until then, I have a lot of games to catch up on. lol

Playstation 4 Conference

That's right!

I was able to watch a live feed on the Playstation 4 announcement. Overall, it was a pretty good show. It has a good start, but it did dwindle along the way before finishing off strong.

All I can say is that I'm actually looking forward to it when it comes out this holiday season. :) I won't be getting it right away, but the PS4 does sound like it's going to be a very promising game console.

Playstation 4 Conference Video

After the conference, I participated in a podcast with a few other friends. :) It's probably my favorite podcast episode that I've been in.

Hart & Usagi Podcast Ep. 37 (Warning: Strong language)

Anyway, I had wanted to talk about the Super Bowl earlier in the month but never got around to it. The game was really good. I'd say it was one of the best Super Bowl games I had seen in a long time. I didn't really have a team to root for though. The 49ers and the Ravens? Eh, no Chicago Bears. lol There were plenty of notable commercials, but the one that stood out to me the most featured Paul Harvey.

I guess it's also worth mentioning that I had hoped the Beyonce half-time show was a bit longer. XD

Moving on! I've slowly gotten back into game. I've been playing a couple of TellTale games, The Walking Dead and Back to the Future. I need my adventure fix after all. =P At some point I would like to do livestreams of games I have on my PC, mostly from Steam and GOG.com. We shall see if this machine is capable of running games while on Livestream. :)

As for art, I've been in a bit of a slump. The ideas are there, but I can't seem to draw at the moment. I'm going to try to fix that. ^^;

Before I end this I have a few more videos to share. =P

Game Grumps: Family Feud SNES (Worth watching at the 15:19 marker)
NFL: Bad Lip Reading
Post-PS4 Rev3Games 

I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day whether you're with someone special or not. :)

Thanks for reading and bring on Nascar season!

Until next time! This is Eddie the Wolf signing off.

Favorite YouTube Videos Of Late And More

Hey all!

I figured I'd share a few videos with you that I found to be interesting. :) Some of you may have seen them before, but it never hurts to share them.

Invisible Drive Thru Prank

Game Grumps: Sonic 06 Part 20 (This one is worth it at the 7:30 time marker)

Conversation With 12 Year Old Self

Cat vs. Dog

These four will do for now. *nods* I had more in mind, but I'll save them for another time. :)

I recently picked up an N64 for the first time! I got the system with Banjo-Kazooie and Star Fox 64. Now I just need to get the Expansion Pak since there are a couple of games I plan on getting that will require it. With that in mind, here is my N64 wishlist as of this post.

Nintendo 64 GameSpot Wishlist

Anyway, this is all that I can think of at the moment. I'll be watching the Super Bowl with a friend this weekend, but I don't know who I'll be rooting for. It might end up being the 49ers, but I honestly don't care. What matters is that I'll have a good time watching it. :)

As for drawing, I do have a couple of Valentine's Day related things I would like to knock out. I wasn't able to get anything ready to post this time, but I'll try to have something next week. *nods*

As always, I thank you all for taking the time to read this. :) I wish you guys a great rest of the weekend!

Until next time! This is Eddie the Wolf signing off!
