Worst Videogame Item - Blue Shell

by on

Nintendo...who have brought us amazing games like Super Mario 64, Metroid Prime and Donkey Kong Country are also responsible for one of the worst items to ever be created in a videogame PERIOD.

Before the days when gamers flamed infinity ward for adding deathstreaks which 'aided' the weak.. was a period of gaming when nintendo decided to punish skill and talent so that the weak would stand a chance against the onslaught they would otherwise face.

This item is capable of turning the tides incredibly quickly in a race. About to cross the finish line in first place? See that blue shell coming for you? Well.. enjoy 7th position. This has happened heaps of times to every mario kart participant since the 64 era when the blue shell was first introduced, marking the decline in the series in only the second entry. Since then they have been in EVERY SINGLE entry, marking mario kart as one of the more recognized games where the F Bomb has been said in quick succession.

The rage which the blue shell brings could have been remedied if only there was ANY item which can counter/nullify it, like a shield of some sort. But the only 2 things you can do to not get his is either suck at mario kart or sacrifice yourself by purposely jumping out of the track and reseting yourself. Even a complete novice who is in last place with no chance of coming first has the opportunity to **** your race up by throwing a blue shell and still not get out of 8th place.

This item has no place in Mario Kart and has no place in video games.

Got a new 360

by on

Hi guys , i got a 360 (250gig slim) yesterday from my best mate as a 21st bday present with gears 1 + 2 & L4D2. Extremely happy with it and would like to share my thoughts (and compare with the ps3 whicih ive had for 2 years now)

I wont talk about the games ive got as i havnt played much of them (only splitscreen which wouldnt be a fair way to judge them)

Downloads - Ive been happy with the ps3 all these years and even though its slower then the 360 it gets the job done... Boy was i surprised when i was downloading add ons (gears 2 all in 1 pack)... the thing downloaded in like 15-20 minutes (700mb) with a wireless connection that is pretty impressive.. i have no idea why its soooo fast. Also all the patches ive done so far have been extremely quick as well... maybe due to the patches being like 4-8mbs long.. (why are they so short? Usually on psn they are minimum 15mb and take about a minute)

XBL GOLD - so far i havnt played much online..only a match or 2 in the first gears... so far i cant justify paying $50 a year (80 in australia but my friend said u can get them for 50 on ebay).. i havnt bought it yet but i will soon... MS gave me a complimentary 1 free month of GOLD... which was nice.. I cant see myself using any of the features..maybe party chat but still a rip off in my eyes.. Im not that XBOX savvy so i dont know what other features gold 'unlocks' but so far no dice. Ps3 does what 360 does for free (From what ive uncovered so far) (though i will be paying for it to verse my mate and stuff)

Which leads me to my next point.. MY GOD its soo complicated the interface... last night my mate and i spent like 40 minutes trying to work out how to chat with each other (text chat/keyboard) and there are just too many options which are not organised properly like the ps3 (sign in..invite to chat room..thats it)... is the only way really to sign into msn to text chat??

The controller i prefer the ps3 though 360 is fine.. i dont like the analogue sticks.. they feel worse then the ps3 ones (IMO)

Avatars - I didnt realize it was fun to create one lol i actually enjoyed making mine and i think u can create more then one if im not mistaken which is neat... The bad thing is that EVERYTHING u get charged for in regards to clothing and props for ur avatar... i couldnt find one free thing.. i mean come on...nothing?? but ah well..my guys awesome enough as it is

the game marketplace (havnt bothered with video/music as the ps3 is pretty much my movie/music machine as well as games) Is pretty cool... i still have to get used to how much points are worth in real life currency but ill get used to it... i was surprised when i saw heaps of free add on stuff... from what i heard here , nothing was for free. Im extremely happy that most games have demos as well.

Achievements - same as trophies but i prefer trophies and the sound they make... a + is that all games have them.. so pre-2008 (ps3/360 multiplats) will have them unlike the ps3 versions..

Im still going to get all my multiplats probably on my ps3 as its still my console of choice and ive already made heaps of friends and have a good trophy count and all that...but ill probably check out most of the exclusives (and pc/360 games) on the 360 anyways as there are a few i have wanted to try.

A few extra Cons of the system...

-whats with the power brick? lol that thing is huge

-Mic is of low quality though its more comfortable then the ps3 mic (can u use the ps3 mic with the 360? is there bluetooth at all?)

-Unless u install all the games it sound loud like annoyinginly loud...and i thought the new slim was meant to be quieter (and yes i have / am installing all my games to the HDD cause the noise is annoying...)

- disc tray

-batteries for controller

that is all lol..

since ive made this thread i'd like to ask a few questions regarding games.

i would like ur opinion on the following games..
Crackdown 1 + 2? (How does it compare with prototype and infamous? it doesnt look as good as infamous but im willing to give them a shot)
Alan wake
Splinter Cell (never played a SC game b4..should i try and see if i can find the earlier ones or wont it matter) Thanks guys

Also i plan on buying mass effect 2 on the ps3 (cause its got all dlc/looks better/trophies/was planning to b4 i got the 360) Since its coming out with the introduction thingy.. should i skip on playing the 1st mass effect? Cheeers..
