You: Yes, your mother says hi.

Your conversational partner has disconnected.

Team Fortress 2 is awesome

I love multiplayer shooters. I've played nearly every type of them, from large-scale conflict shooters (Battlefield 2, Star Wars Battlefront 2) to semi-realistic real-world games (Counter-Strike, Call of Duty) to arena style deathmatch (UT2k4, the entire Quake series). I've enjoyed them all. However, none has captured me in the way Team Fortress 2 has recently.

I bought the Orange Box with the full intention of playing Episode 2 and Portal, and while I love both of those games, I haven'tcomeclose to beatingeither because I've been sinking so much time into the Box's multiplayer component. Every chance I get, I'll sneak off to play a couple of rounds of 2Fort or Turbine. And I never even was a CTF fan! The combination of tactics and full frontal fragging is just pitch perfect. However, I do think that a couple of the classes need to be rebalanced *coughscoutcough*.

But I'm finding that what I love most about the game is the atmosphere and the cel-shaded graphics. It reminds me of a Pixar movie, but ultra-violent. And the personalization of the characters? Absolutely hilarious. You can tell that they really put their heart into these characters (even if they're just hilarious stereotypes). And this is supposed to be a multiplayer shooter.

Well, I'm off to play more TF2!

(By the way, isn't the news about the free Daggerfall crazy? I'm going to download it soon. :D)

Goombella

Wow. Is it just me, or have I been level 32 (Snake Eater) for somewhere between forever and an eternity? Good to finally level up I guess. :D

I got Fallout 3!

Title says all. I haven't installed it yet, but I will after I finish my homework. I'm looking forward to it. After hearing all those great things about it, I'm itching to step into the DC Wastleland.

How I was able to buy it, even after my dad saw the ESRB descriptors, is a mystery to me. If I blow up some poor mutant's head when my mom walks in on me, it'll be all over. Let's just hope that won't happen.

2 and a half years.

That's the time I've waited.

I've endured:

Release window delays.
Will Wright giving us endless speeches about how it will change the world.
Painfully short, but painfully awesome, E3 and Leipzig showings.
Slim details about the actual game.
EA releasing a tiny part of the game for sale, which can be likened to a delicious but tiny and expensive appetizer served before the main course.

But here it is.

Spore is sitting in my disk drive, ready to be installed.

Screw the good-but-not-glowing reviews, I'm going to enjoy this.

Blech.

I hate Gamespot Wide. Worst redesign EVER.

This makes Giant Bomb's layout look like Facebook.

New Happenings

Hello, Gamespot! It's been a while since my last entry. Since then, I've acquired new games, gone back to some old ones, gotten out of school, and just generally had a decent time.

Oh, and I also discovered a little free MMO known as Mabinogi. I normally hate MMOs, especially free ones, but this one is alot different; it's fun, has a great community, and there are no classes like "Thief" and "Wizard", so you collect skills and kinda create your own class as you go along. Sort of like Runescape, but without the redundant combat and bad graphics. If you want to check it out, go to http://www.nexon.net/ and click on Mabinogi. It just might be the last MMO you'll ever need to play.

Now for the reason I posted this. I'm pleased to say that you'll be seeing alot more of this blog in the near future. Since I'm now officially out of school for the summer, I have more time to post in this blog and on the forums, as well as do some more reviews. I'm actually replaying Kirby: Squeak Squad right now, and at the rate it's going, I'll have a review up tomorrow or on Friday. After that, I'll try to do a review of SSBM. I can't make promises, but it'll probably happen. That's just the beginning.

I've also been looking at getting into retro gaming. I feel really cheated out of alot of the good old school games because I was born in '93, and by the time I was old enough to play games, the 16-bit era had passed. Also, I never owned an N64 growing up, as my parents thought that consoles were a waste of money and that the PC was the best for games. However, now that I'm older, I have started to appreciate the older consoles, and I realize that some of the old gaming experiences can never be duplicated or remade on newer consoles with fancy graphics and an added edge. Just like Clas sic Rock or fine wine, they get better with age.

And that's one of the reasons why I'm seriously looking into getting a SNES.

I'm still not sure where to buy one, however. eBay's outrageous shipping costs put it out of the question, and I don't trust flea markets or thrift stores. Fortunately, there's a Play N Trade in Grand Rapids (about 30 minutes north from where I live). I've heard almost nothing but good things about Play N Trade and how much better they are than Gamestop. I still don't know what the selection in that particular store is like, but I'll probably have little trouble finding Nintendo's 16-bit champion for a good price.

Now, you might be wondering, "Why do you want a SNES? It's so old! The Xbox 360 and PS3 are so much better! They have good graphics and you can play online!" Well, here are 10 reasons for you.

1. Bragging rights! You can finally say that you have the greatest video game system ever.
2. Better late than never. I missed it when it was Nintendo's prime weapon against Sega, and I'm not going to make the same mistake twice.
3. Online play isn't that big of a factor. The SNES has alot of good local multiplayer games. Oh, and it was one of the last systems in which co-op play was huge, and that's a favorite game mode of mine
4. Good variety. The SNES has something for everyone. The library spans all sorts of genres, and I'd like to see such a diverse library on any home console today.
5. Mode 7 is actually pretty cool. 3D, even fake-ish 3D, on a primarily 2D home system looked mindblowing back in the day, and it hasn't aged too badly. It seems like it provides nice gameplay variety.
6. Not all movie games were gauranteed to suck. Look at Super Star Wars. That game looks great. Now? You're hard pressed to find a great movie game.
7. Square hadn't defected yet. Before Square made games for Sony (booooooooo!), they made games on Nintendo consoles. And most of those games were AWESOME! Everything they touched in the SNES era became clas sic.
8. Nintendo really knew how to make great games. Don't get me wrong, they still do, but the SNES era (and perhaps the N64 era, too) showed just how awesome Nintendo could be.
9. The best games made sure that you had fun. This is why I love Nintendo. Their philosophy is: If you make a game fun, people will keep coming back for more. And that's exactly what they did with the good old SNES.
10. More great games than you could shake 80 bajillion sticks at. Examples include Super Mario RPG, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Kirby Super Star, Super Mario World (of course), Yoshi's Island, Final Fantasy II and III, Super Game Boy, Super Mario All Stars, Chrono Trigger, and the list goes on. Need I say more?

So, that's it. I don't need fancy graphics and online deathmatches in my games. They're cool, but all I want is a fun game. A good time. Something that'll make me want to invite my friends over and pull an allnighter playing. Just something like that. There aren't enough of those anymore, so I might as well go back. The SNES seems to have what I'm looking for. I hope that I can find one for a good price.

Defias Brotherhood, updates, and random garbage

So, I'm now Level 25 AKA Defias Brotherhood. Whoop-dee-freaking-doo.

The real news is that I've acquired some new games over the past while. This is the list.

The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass

Minorly disappointing. I'm still in the first part of the game, so it probably gets better, but I'm not feeling the magic that I felt during Wind Waker... yet. Even with that, this is still a great game, and the reason that I was disappointed probably had to do with the fact that my hype for the game was stratospheric.

Overall (so far)-8.0

Mario Party DS

I got this guy for Christmas. I was excited for it, because it was the highest rated Mario Party game in... forever! And you know what? My expectations were fulfilled. It's a great game that's a hoot to play with my sister.
Overall (so far)-8.2

Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords

A great puzzle/RPG. I wish that all games were this fun and addictive. The game is challenging and the battle system is great fun. The presentation is also good. Must buy if you like RPGs and puzzlers.
Overall (so far)-8.5

Drawn to Life

Fun, addictive, and a breath of fresh air. Someone finally decided to use the touch screen to do what I've wanted it to do for a long time; you can actually draw your own character! Even though I'm a horrible artist, it's still fun. If you're imaginative and like to draw, ADD THIS ONE TO YOUR COLLECTION ASAP!!
Overall (so far)-8.2

Cooking Mama 2: Dinner With Friends

The sequel to the pretty fun though structureless Cooking Mama is about as fun and structureless as the last game. There are new recipes, and the cooking for friends option is pretty cool, but other than that, it's nothing new.
Overall (so far)-7.0

I have a nice collection of DS games, you say? Unfortunately, I haven't had much time to play them. No, all of my time is being eaten by

VIVA PINATA (PC)

I bought this with my Christmas money a few days after Christmas, and despite the bugs, this is probably my favorite game of the past few years. It's quirky, addictive, and EXTREMELY FUN. This game will give you hours of entertainment, trying to attract a pinata into your garden, growing plants, and trying to unlock everything in the game. If you like unlockables, buy this game. If you like Rare, buy this game. If you like Pinatas, buy this game. If you like the TV show, buy this game (but that doesn't matter much; heck, I think the TV show is kinda lame and I love this game). If you play games, buy this game. If you like FUN, BUY THIS GAME.
Overall (so far)-9.5!

So, there you have it. The new games that I have acquired.

Oh, and bye the way, over the past few months, I have developed an unhealthy obsession with LOLcats. I may post some that I make on the blog in the future. Be veeeeeeeery afraid.

Super Mario Galaxy Wins GOTY (and a venting session about fanboys)

Super Mario Galaxy is the game of the year. That's pretty funny; I thought for sure it would be Crysis, butDARNifSMG doesn't deserve it. It's an incredibly polished game from what I've played of it (in contrast to Super Mario Sunshine) andit's really, reallybeautiful in thegraphics department. The haters are being owned so hard on System Wars. Some people are like, "TEH WII WILL NEVER HAVE ANOTHER GOTY!" Sure, whatever.

I hate fanboys so much, especially the stupid ones. They are the biggest threat to SW, blindly following whatever their company does. I'll even say that the Sheep are sometimes idiots, but they actually admit ownage and of some good points, as do the slightly dumber Lemmings. The Cows, on the other hand... MAN. They are so stupid it's hilarious, posting things like, "KILLZONE>>>>>>>>>>>>>>HALOW" "PS3 has more AAAs than the PC!" and"*insert any quote from PS3_FTW, Gingerdivid, the long banned KeyWii, or even AHUGECAT (even though the latter wasn'treally a Cow; is heeven around anymore?)*". Ifevery fanboy was banned from Gamespot, it would be amazing. Sure, SW would pretty much cease to exist, but it would be for the better, right? Oh well, that will never happen.

So anyways, Happy rest of the Holidays to you guys, and sorry that I haven't updated my blog in four months! Expect more entries soon!

EDIT: Turns out that AHUGECAT is still around, but I haven't seen him in a long time (fortunately).
