SS67's Top 10 Coolest Video Game Characters: Part Two

#7: Lara Croft

From: Eidos Interactive

Games: Tomb Raider, Tomb Raider II, Tomb Raider: Underworld, Tomb Raider: Legend, etc.

Can you get much cooler than having guns, and being a chick?Lara Croft has got to be one of the most amazing video game characters ever created. She's got the beauty, the brains, and the brawns. Seriously, this chick is so strong, she puts The Incredible Hulk to shame. She has guns attached to every hip, and always keeps her hair neat in a ponytail. You've got to admit that a character is pretty cool when she's created after so much controversy about what her name she should be, what gender she should be, or even what nationality she should be. I'm not joking, go see it yourself on Wikipedia.

#6: Cloud Strife

From: Square Enix

Games: Final Fantasy Series

The Final Fantasy series has several cool characters in it, but none of them are really as cool and styIish as Cloud. Well, maybe Sephiroth, I don't know. Although I may not be a big Final Fantasy fan, I still think Cloud is pretty cool, even though his hair may make him look a little Emo.He's got attitude, kick-ass (or just plain weird) hair, and has a sword that's even bigger than himself.I mean, just look at that sword, IT'S HUGE, I don't even think Superman could lift that thing. The main reason I put him on this list is because of the unforgettable scene from Final Fantasy VII. (Sniff), I'll never forget that moment.

#5: Ryu

From: Tecmo

Games: Ninja Gaiden (NES), Ninja Gaiden (XBOX), Ninja Gaiden Black, Ninja Gaiden II, Ninja Gaiden Trilogy, Dead or Alive Series, etc.

RyuHayabusa.jpg

Just listen to this, Ryu spoke very little, kicked everyone's ass, has never been in a bad game (NEVER), is a leader of a Dragon Clan, always wore black, and was a ninja. And ninjas are always cool. He was cool on the NES, and he's still badass today on the Xbox 360. This dude has been around almost as long as Mario or Sonic, and may have a connection with a certain armor in Halo 3, the Hayabusa armor, which just happens to be his last name. To be a ninja, and all of that and more is really cool. Ryu may have been put higher on the list, but you need to wait and see what I have in store for you guys next. Thanks For Reading!

that's all for part 2!

come back for part three. there, I'll show you guys some even cooler people in the business.if i gave you gus a hint,you'd figure it out too easily, sorry.

The Schedule

  • Part Two (#7-5):Monday
  • Part Three (#4-2): Wednesday
  • Part Four (#1): Friday

Just so you're aware of how this is going to work out.

HAPPY SUPERBOWL SUNDAY!!!

SS67's Top 10 Coolest Video Game Characters: Part One

#10: Sonic the Hedgehog

From: SEGA

Games: Sonic The Hedgehog, Sonic Adventure, Sonic & Knuckles, etc.

Sonic.png

Although Sonic may not have had a really great game in the past eight years, he sill is a pretty cool dude. He had some of the best games of the '90s, and really showed a thing or two to Mario. He's fast, got spikey air, and some kick-ass shoes and attitude. His theme song even says "He's the fastest thing alive!" (from the Sonic Saturday cartoon, for those ofyou who didn't know). So nowadays, he's taken as a joke, but he was alright back in the day. Well, let's just hope he find his big break soon enough... Can anyone say, "Project Needlemouse?"

#9: Mega Man

From: Capcom

Games: Mega Man 1-9, Mega Man X1-3, Mega Man Legends

Mega Man (Mega Man 9).png

He may be the most abused andmost made fun of franchise ever, but this dude was a big hit back on the NES in 1987. The blue bomber, Mega Man was original, had a cannon for an arm, and had a robotic dog, and that's cool. Even though the last relly good Mega Man game was X 3 :(. But even though he was small, after he kills you, he's gonna take your abilities to use them against you. The only reason he's not higher on this list is because of his voice in Mega Man Legends, oh God, it was terrible.

#8: Meta Knight

From: Nintendo/HAL Laboratory

Games: Kirby's Adventure, Kirby Air Ride, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, etc.

File:Metaknight.jpg

He'sround, short, and has a cape and wings growing out of his back, that's both weird and cool at the same time. Both in the anime and the games, Meta Knight spoke little, hada sword as big as his body, and always had that sinister glare in his eyes. I would've put Kirby on this list instead, but for coolness and styIe I had to go with Meta Knight. Plus, if you've ever played as Meta Knight in Brawl, you'd know why I really put him on here. To be honest, MetaKnight is one of the main reasons that I really like the Kirby series.And that glare, it's begining to freak me out, I'd better end this blog now before I have nightmares.

STAY TUNED FOR PART TWO

there, we will discuss a girl with guns, a dude with some serious hair, and a ninja...

SS67's Top 10 Coolest Video Game Characters - Promo/Preview

Saing something is"cool" can be pretty objective. And something that you think is cool may not be very cool to everyone else, but that's okay. Hey, some of the things I may think are cool may not be your cup of tea, but that's alright. And after playing many games for many weeks, I've decided what I think are some of the coolest guys around. And remember, this is my list, so it's my opinion. If you have your opinion, feel free to speak it. So, coming this week, the world shall see...

SS67's

Top 10

COOLEST

Video Game Characters

Now I mentioned my new Top 10 lists would be different from my Top 10 Themes list, and they will. And this is how I will organize them so it won't feel so spread out:

Part One: #10-#8

Part Two: #7-#5

Part Three: #4-#2

Part Four: #1 (Because the #1 of every list is the most important part of it.)

Got Any Requests For A "Top 10" List?

If you happen to have a request for any kind of video game related top 10 list, I'd love to hear your ideas. I could be about games, characters, publishers, consoles, etc. I've been wanting to do one for a really long time now, but I don't know what people want to hear. So give me some of your ideas. There's really no right or wrong answers here. If I see an idea that I really like, I'll do it. I won't tell you when, but I will :P.

Special thanks to those who helped me get up to level 12, I couldn't have done it without you.

But the best is yet to come.

:roll: Or is it?!?!?!?

Now I See Why It Was So Cheap...

I recently got my Xbox 360 Elite for Christmas. But before I say anything else, I just wanna say that I love my 360, and its online multiplayer features. And with it, I recieved 5 games. Those games were:

  • Burnout Paradise
  • Halo 3
  • The Simpsons Game
  • Ghostbusters: The Video Game
  • Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)

And I noticed that there were still stickers on the front of some of the games. For some reason, the sticker said that Sonic the Hedgehog was only $3.99, and that's a pretty low price for a game. And I wanted to see if I got a great game for a great deal, or if it was just another one of those games on the discount shelf. After playing for about a half an hour, now I know... ...Sonic '06 sucks.

After seeing the opening cutscene, I said "What the hell does THIS have to do with Sonic, or anything else?". Basically, I guess Sonic is trying to save Princess Elise and the Chaos Emerald from the clutches of Dr.Eggman.To be honest, I did not know what to do after I reached Soleanna and saw Tails. Then I found out that you need to buy an upgrade to cross the river to reach the first level. I looked all around the town and finally saw this BARELY recognizable store. After I got it and went to the first level, the camera and controls were so bad, I just couldn't get it. The load times aren't a help either. Let me just say this, if you're going to be playing a level in the game, or doing a town mission, just grab a drink and be patient. But I wish I could say that the game's "so bad, it's good", but it just isn't. Only the most casual of gamers, or the most hardcore Sonic fans will be able to find some fun out of it. If you're a true Sonic fan, like I am, you might wanna stay clear of this.

By the way, what's with Dr. Eggman in this game anyway? He looks as if he would be a real person, and he looks creepier than he usually does. It just isn't right. Although there may be a supporting cast of characters in the game, like Knuckles, Tails, Amy, Shadow, Rouge, Blaze,and E-123 Omega, they really don't help the overall game. And there's and introduction of yet ANOTHER character in the Sonic series, whose named Silver The Hedgehog. And the voice acting in this game is pretty poor as well. All of the people in the village move their lips and arms, even wen they're not even speaking. And most of the main characters voices are straight out of the anime, Sonic X. Now that's what I call cheap. And like I said, the voices are still not laughably bad. If they were, maybe the game would be more enjoyable.

Maybe I'll go into further detail in a review one day, but I still need to finish the rest of the game for it to really be considered a review. Overall, Sonic '06 is just a mediocre game at its worst. And now I see why this game was so cheap.

  • GS Score: 4.4/10
  • My Score: 5.0/10

Worst Game of the Year Nominees

Hey everyoe, I'm back from New York. I had a wonderful time with friends and family, how about you? Anyways, back to the real reason this blog is here. I just wanted to say thanks to all of you who submited these pieces of crud that are dared to be labled "video games".

2009 has had a great year in the video game world with some great games like Modern Warefare 2, New SMB for Wii, Halo 3: ODST, etc. But these following games have done absolutley nothing to help the video game world, or to the gamers who played them. I'm SuperSpeed67 and these are the nominees for the Worst Game of 2009.

1. Sonic and the Black Knight (Wii)

Publisher: Sega/Sonic Team

Release Date: March 3rd, 2009

Score by GS: 4.5/10

Sonic and the Black Knight Boxshot

Oh boy, Sonic just hasn't caught a break in the last decade, has he? At a first glance, Sonic & the Black Knight looks like it would be a really great game to play. Imean, the gamehas speed, so that must mean something, right? WRONG! Even though there may be somethings to checkout in this game, it doesn'tmake up for it's simple, frustratng, and not to mention brokengameplay. The game take place in where Sonic is in therelms of KingArthur (excitng, right?), and sets off to becomea true knight to save theland. And eventhough the story is told througha nice, storybook like way,the rest of the story does not really resemble the actual Arthinian legend. And the side of the game cover says "Sonic Storybook Series", oh no, does that mean there's going to be more?While playing, you may ask yourself, "what am I supposed to do?", good question, I couldn't really figure it out either. My real question is this, "WHY ARE THE CONTROLS SO BROKEN?!??!?". Sonic on the Wii in a storybook land, it just doesn't work.

2. Rouge Warrior (PS3/X360/PC)

Pubisher: Bethesda Softorks

Release Date: December 1st, 2009

Score by GS: 2.0/10

Rogue Warrior Boxshot

Now Rouge Warrior, where do I beign bashing it? How about with just a few of the bads. EVERYTHING ABOUT IT IS TOTAL GARBAGE!!!!!!You play as Dick Marcink, a former Navy SEAL voiced by Mickey Rourke. Marcink in this game is nothing more than just a disgusting, low-life potty-mouth without any sort of a redeemig quality. NowIunderstand that some FPS and other shooters tend to use some language, that's okay, I guess. But thisgame just adiscrace to the English language and any other langage in the world. The overall gameplayin Rouge Warrior is too shallow, short, unappealing, weak, predictable,and mostlyit just feels unfinished. And the action is even right, the hit direction is broken. You may kill a soldier withafew shots to the leg, orsomething, but other ones may survive with what looks like several directheadshots.With all the explicit audio, I'm suprised that the ESRB even allowed them to release thisgame, let alone give it a Mature Rating. Overall, for them to charge us nearly 60 bucks for what seem like a huge punchin the gut is a sin. Avoid it at all costs.

3. Tony Hawk Ride (PS3/X360/Wii)

Publisher: Activision

Release Date: November 17th, 2009

Score by GS: 3.5/10

Tony Hawk Ride Boxshot

Another cIassic example of a game that doesn't live up to the hype, Tony Hawk Ride just feels very akward. Now with all of the Tony Hawk games in the past, you would just use your regular controller. But with Ride you can't do that anymore, and that's where thisgame sucks ass. Instead you need to use the board that comes with it. And if you're like me, who can't ride a skateboard, or even keep his balance, the game is worthless. Even theplastic board you play with rarely works, it's liketryingto silencean infant. There should have been a "standard controller" mode.They've really limited the number of people who can actually play, or even enjoy the game. Unless you're a hardcore Tony Hawk fan and like the idea of paying $120 for this trash, and the worthless plastic that comes with it, you can ignore Ride.

So there you have it, the three nominees for the Worst Game of 2009. Vote in the comments who you think should win the Worst Game of the Year Award. Voting begins now and goes on until January 3rd, 2010 @ 12:00 PM.Find out then who has won the following day. Happy voting and havea Happy New Year! That's all, folks!
