Yeah, so.... I'm checking back here on things after a long year.

by on

So, what's up?

Well, here is what I've been doing for the past year.

- Been extremely busy with college. Now on my 3rd year. Working on getting an associates degree in Business Management.

- Been a good contributer to Giantbomb in my own way, and made some good friends along the way.

- Was on a podcast for a while, then it got cancelled because of lack of contact from the main members. Was like a summer podcast fling thing.

- Social life has improved a little bit, but I'm still pathetic.

- Some relatives have died, and grandfather is in very poor health.

- My childhood pet bird died this year. He was 13.

- Been playing a good chunk of games since 09, like Super Mario Galaxy 2, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Chrono Trigger DS, Cave Story, and Rayman 2: The Great Escape.

- The VGAs this year sucked, but E3 didn't.

- I'm wanting a new computer. (Don't ask why I want one)

- I LOVE VIDEOGAME MUSIC!!

- Netflix is AWESOME!

So I'll check back on this again soon. Won't take me a year or 5 months to respond this time. :P

Goodbye

by on

It's all been great here on Gamespot, and I'll never forget how much I loved contributing my thoughts, opinions, interests, and the countless hours of enjoyment I've had writing blogs. It has come time for me to go for I don't have much of a will to stay. It's hard to keep up with so many things at once, and it's time for me to just say goodbye to Gamespot. Contact has become so limited between all of us, and I doubt that really anyone cares to check up on me anymore. All is not lost though, because I have found a new community gaming site home on Giantbomb where I believe I have made good friends like I have done here, which has been a small while. http://www.giantbomb.com/profile/tireyo643/

I will miss you all here on Gamespot. Especially DMLSLAT AKA: Danny Rice, Key_Blade150 AKA: Jack, AweWiiGamer1, KingGamer, Desulated, and SomeOddGuy. You all are awesome, and I wish for you all to see the awesomeness of Giantbomb where I might have a chance to see you all again, and continue to read all your amazing blog posts. So, I say good bye to all the Gamespot friends I've made this year, and it's time for me to move on. God bless you all and goodbye.

Here is my last favorite videogame song from the Zone of Enders that I like because of its poetic beauty.

Flowing Destiny from the game Zone of Enders

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6fDUwOpa5M

It wakes me up to find

A flowing destiny
It wakes me up to find

Your shining eyes in pleasure
The treasure on my mind

A flowing destiny
It wakes me up to find
I never lose your memories
I never lose your memories

-Thank you all for reading my blogs at one time or another and sharing your contributions. Until another day my dear friends.

Nothing is ever too late,

Virtual Console games that need multi-player and/or online support.

by on

Here are my 5 Virtual Console titles that desperately need online support and/or multi-player. It's great that all the games are in their original format, but there are a few games that I would love to see have multi-player and online support.

5. I'm so torn on what to choose as my number 5, so I'm going to have several ties.

*Super Mario RPG needs multi-player and online support. Super Mario RPG would probably be my number four or five, but I think that having online support would make it too simple and multi-player wouldn't really be soo bad, but some may find multi-player for this game annoying.

*Sonic the Hedgehog needs online support. Sonic the Hedgehog would be ok to play online, but not the greatest choice for online support so it's at number 5 as well. It would be similar to the Donkey Kong Country situation.

*Donkey Kong Country 1,2, and 3 is a good little series of Rare trade mark masterpieces. You can play up to 2 players, but of course there is no online support. Exchanging friend codes with a friend is pretty much is the main thing that needs to happen.

*F-Zero X needs online support. I'm also not trying ro over-crowd the list with racing games, so that's why F-Zero X is at number 5.

*Starfox 64 needs online support. There are some things that Starfox 64 lacks that wouldn't really make it the best choice for online support because there is no variety to make online too enjoyable.

4. Mario Golf 64 is my number FORE!!! It would be great to see tournament rankings compared to others around the world, and it would be even better to play online! The game would really be more interesting and vicious if online support came into the picture! So this game truely deserves to be my number four on mostly needing online support.

3. Mario Kart 64 takes the number 3 spot as a deserving candidate of needing online support. Countless hours can be spent on this game, especially battle mode. It may play up to four players on one console, but it would be better to race online too. I guess we'll have to just settle with Mario Kart Wii!

2. F-Zero for the NES is a game that needs both multi-player and online support. It sucks that you can't even race against your friends much less is there online support. So this is worthy of being number one for needing both multi-player and online support the most, but number two on my list of games that need online and/or multi-player the most.

1.Secret of Mana is a great game to play, and quite a legendary RPG. However, it gets really hard at times. Although you can use and play up to three players, it really needs online support. If you are stuck on something, then it would be great to get help from a friend online instead of you going at it alone. Yeah, you can get friends or relatives to help you if you're using one console, but it would be better if there was online support if those friends and relatives can't go to your house. Exchange friend codes or something! So this game respectfully deserves the number one spot.

Ok, that's enough, I guess, for now. If you want to contribute to the list with some of your own ideas, I would love to see them. :D I might of forgot about a game! Well, I'll be going. See you all later!

What I would like to see at E3 2010 or sometime soon. (Nintendo)

by on

I don't expect to see all of these games on E3 (Nintendo) next year, but it would be nice to see some from the list very soon even!! It would be cool if these games released this year! Here is a list of what I think should be in Nintendo's future in gaming.

  1. New Wii Zelda game
  2. New Wii Starfox game
  3. New Wii F-Zero game
  4. New Mario Sport, Party, or Paper Mario game
  5. Mario Paint to be revived with original content and new content
  6. Wii/DSi integration of Virtual Console games. (EX: Virtual Console can be played on DSi too!!)
  7. Klonoa: Lunatea's Veil Wii-Make
  8. New and improved Klonoa on Wii
  9. Pikmin 3
  10. New Nintendo Franchise - A good platformer action game
  11. New Wii Channel that features listening to vintage and new video game music that can be put on an SD card.
  12. PilotWings Wii
  13. Castlevania Wii - Actually releasing soon!
  14. Earthbound Wii - Special Surprise
  15. More information on games that was featured this year and didn't release yet come E3 next year! -Hope that makes sense. Pretend Mario Galaxy 2or Metroid: Other M didn't come out yet E3 2010. I would expect to see more info at the next E3 about it! That is the concept I'm getting to.

Well, there you have it! 15 things that would be cool to see E3 (Nintendo) next year or should come soon! What do you think about the list? Got anything to add? Thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed the list, and until next time! :D

There will be a Super Mario Galaxy 2, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Metroid: Other M for Wii, The Conduit, Wii Sports Resort, Wii Fit Plus, Mario VS.Donkey Kong: Mini's March Again, Red Steel 2, Final Fantasy: The Chrystal Bearers, The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, Wii Vitality Sensor, Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, Dead Space Extraction, Virtua Tennis 2009, and Golden Sun DS.

The others are good I'm sure, but these are the main 4 that I like! Conference was ok, but not the best. Well, that is all that I got to say! Tell me what you think!

Virtual Console and WiiWare Titles that are worth a try!

by on

Here is what I think are the best WiiWare and Virtual Console titles that money can buy so far. For the ones who many not know what Virtual Console or WiiWare is, it's a service on Wii where one can download older and newer games! The Virtual Console helps gamers experience and re-experience older games, while WiiWare titles offer new games! There are games that I have researched, but have not played. I think that it would fair to list the researched/non-played games too because of the reception and popularity of those games!

Notes: The following lists are not in any particular order.

*Researched/Non-played

WiiWare


Bubble Bobble Plus! – Bubble Bobble Plus! is a really not a bad game for $6, and it just came out. 200 levels of bubble shooting and eliminating enemies, and picking up the items that they drop come to a very well balanced game. You can get 100 more levels by purchasing the extra downloadable content. Add it all together, and you get a $10 game with 300 action packed, old-school ****action! This updated version of Bubble Bobble is certainly not a dud. I was one of the people who were hesitant on getting Bubble Bobble because of the "cute" factor. If you work around the "cute" factor, then you'll realize you got a pretty challenging and quality game on your hands! This title is worth checking out.

Tetris Party - Tetris has been here for a long period of time. Now, the mother of all puzzle games is back in a whole new way! Alexey Pajitnov probably did not know what kind of game that he has created, but it has become well known and extremely popular. Today it's one of the best legendary puzzle games that have ever been created. Tetris has had its ups and downs through the years, but it has now reached a peak. Tetris Party for Wii is not only fun, but it also features new ways to play and enjoy Tetris. There are many ways to play Tetris! You can play alone, against friends, online, and with the balance board among many different modes or ways to play. You can even change your environments and music that best suits your mood. 12 dollars is not a bad price to pay for this game, and it's worth the money because I bought Tetris Worlds for the Gamecube for 20 dollars. So 12 dollars is a modest price considering what it used to be, and the replay value is unstoppable! (From my personal review http://www.giantbomb.com/tetris-party/61-23234/user_reviews/?review=6897)


*World of Goo - World of Goo is a multiple award winning physics based puzzle / construction game made entirely by two guys. Drag and drop living, squirming, talking, globs of goo to build structures, bridges, cannonballs, zeppelins, and giant tongues. The millions of Goo Balls that live in the beautiful World of Goo are curious to explore - but they don't know that they are in a game, or that they are extremely delicious. (Summary from www.gamerankings.com)


*Mega Man 9 - This latest Mega Man title brings the series back to its old school roots with retro action platforming gameplay and ****c 8-bit NES-****graphics and sound. Relive the Mega Man experience with ****cally inspired bosses, each with their own unique weapons and weaknesses. The story of Mega Man begins in the year 200X, as the advanced science of the era has created industrial robots that co-exist with humans. However, an evil genius, Dr. Wily, plots for world domination and creates his own robot army to take over mankind. Luckily for humanity, Dr. Light outfits one of his domestic robots "Rock" to fight Dr. Wily's creations. Mega Man is born. Set after the events of Mega Man 8, multiple riots have sprung up all over the world. Whilst many people suspect that this is another plot from Dr. Wily, Dr. Light is stunned to recognize that some of the robots rioting on the TV screen are his own creations. Even more stunning, Dr. Wily appears on television to proclaim that Dr. Light is the evil mastermind behind these latest catastrophic incidents and it's up to Mega Man to clear his creator's name! (Summary from WWW.IGN.com)


*Dr. Mario Online Rx - The doctor is in! Mario takes a break from his adventuring ways and once again dons his stethoscope for a new generation of germ-battling mayhem. In addition to the ****c mode of using vitamins to exterminate viruses, you'll find two battle modes and an online multiplayer mode where you can hone your skills against players from around the world. Feel like challenging a friend who doesn't have Dr. Mario Online Rx? Then the WiiWare-exclusive Friend Battle Demo is just what the doctor ordered. Or maybe you'd like some help taking on those nasty viruses? Try out Virus Buster, where four players can simultaneously move capsules simply by pointing at them with a Wii Remote controller. Any way you look at it, Dr. Mario Online Rx is a prescription for fun that everyone can enjoy. (Summary from WWW.IGN.com)

Honorable Mentions for WiiWare
Magnetica Twist*, My Aquarium*, LostWinds*, Art ****Franchise*, MaBoShi's Arcade*, LIT*, Toki Tori*, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King, and Defend Your Castle*.

Virtual Console

Most Anything Mario – The only game I never really cared for was the NES Open Tournament game that he was in. Everything else that is offered through the Virtual Console service that is related to Mario is good. Games like Super Mario Bros., Mario Kart 64, and Paper Mario are some of the many games that makes Mario who he is today! He will always be Mr. Nintendo, in other words Nintendo's forever and beloved mascot!


The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - Absolutely no words can describe how good this game is. The game literally sucks you in as soon as you grab the controller and start the game. This is the most epic and without a doubt the best game I have ever played. The storyline is absolutely captivating, and it leaves you curious and wanting to see more. The graphics may not be the best out there, but I'm here to tell you that graphics are not everything, game play is. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is a game of substance, length, and lasting appeal even when you are finished and not playing it anymore. It's hard for me to pick it back up for a second time, because it's hard to re-experience the action all over again. At least there are memories. The music in the game can be haunting, atmospheric, delightful, and suits the mood of the game. Some boss fights can be pretty easy, but some can be very hard! I can't really find anything wrong with this game. If you have $10 left in Wii Points, I couldn't recommend anything better than The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. If you are new to playing games or the Zelda series, then you are very lucky! $10 for this game is practically a steal. (From my personal review http://www.giantbomb.com/the-legend-of-zelda-ocarina-of-time/61-12572/user_reviews/?review=6933)

*I like Zelda games, but I believe that the Ocarina of Time is the best one. I can't recommend most anything Zelda, because I never really liked the NES versions, and I still need to play Majora's Mask! I heard that Majora's Mask isn't the best Zelda game to play.


The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past – I grew up with Nintendo and somehow I missed this game when it released on the SNES. I know now that I definitely missed something good. I'm so glad that I was able to capture the fantastic moments in this game through Wii! If you played the Twilight Princess and liked it, try A Link to the Past out! This is a great game but it is not my favorite. I do however realize why many regard this game to be the best in the series and I respect that! In my opinion, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is what I think is best in the series. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker is the second. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is my third favorite and at last The Legend of Zelda: A link to the Past is the fourth. I strongly recommend A Link to the Past to any hardcore gamer! This game will definitely give the younger gamers a history lesson and people like me who accidentally missed out! (From my personal review on WWW.Gamespot.com http://www.gamespot.com/wii/rpg/legendofzeldaalinkttpsnes/player_review.html?id=589395&tag=contributions;review1)

Knuckles, Sonic, and Tails


Sonic the Hedgehog 1, 2, and 3
– Sonic was great in the good old days of gaming. These three games define Sonic, and they are certainly his best. It is sometimes really hard to come across something that is not better than the original. In these games, it is easy to see how Sonic was able to grow in the right way, not the way he has been growing for the worse recently. Buying these games at 800 points each is not a rip off in any way. Experiencing or re-experiencing these games are definitely an experience worthwhile.


Donkey Kong Country 1, 2, and 3 – The Donkey Kong Country games are the most beautiful and artful games that I have seen to be on the SNES. Not only are these games are artful, but they are also challenging to boot. The level design and the obstacles can be quite cruel in the game, but it easily pleases any hardcore gamer who is looking for a good challenge. The music in these games is so cinematic, creative, haunting, calm, whimsical, and catchy! Good graphics, music, and most importantly game play make these games iconic. For 800 points apiece, it's definitely a modest price for all of them!


Secret of Mana – Secret of Mana is a very iconic and graphically beautiful RPG similar to the ****of Zelda. It is a very hard game to play and might not appeal to all gamers. Gamers who favor the RPGs will certainly need to give this square gem a try. The elements in the game may be similar to Zelda, but one can definitely tell the difference between the two. The soundtrack of this game is certainly popular among fans, and the atmosphere of each level is very rich and colorful. 800 points for this game is not bad if you don't get impatient too quick!!

Honorable Mentions for Virtual Console

Mega Man franchise*, Toe Jam and Earl*, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, Punch-Out: Featuring Mr. Dream*, Metroid*, Super Metroid*, Starfox 64, Kirby's Adventure*, Super Castlevania 4*, and Gunstar Heroes*.

If there are any comments, questions, or contributions I'll get back to you!! If there are some iconic games that I have accidently left off, then please mention them!! Thanks for reading this very long blog, and see you all next time. Hope ya'll liked the list!
