It is bizarre that nearly every videogame publication has heralded Skyward Sword's tight controls. However, GameSpot's purportedly pioneering 7.5 review seems to focus on how poorly the controls are implemented. Are the 20 some-odd other published opinions claiming that the game has tight motion controls wrong?
6Aug 08Anyone that reads this and owns an Xbox 360 owes to themselves to download and buy Braid for XBL arcade. This game is simultaneously hilarious, melancholy, charming, and fun, and the music is awesome. The artistic direction in this game is brilliant -- sort of like playing mario brothers as if it were transformed into an animated portrait in the National Gallery. It's a thinking man's (or woman's) 2D platformer, and any dude who's experienced heartbreak can relate to the surprisingly captivating story. Play this.
I decided to cave-up for a weekend and edit the Game COPS episode 3 footage. The boys and I filmed this nearly two years ago, so it's about time. I hope someone out there enjoys it.
[EDIT] Syncing issues fixed.
On a personal note, I have one more year left in law school, and I need to seriously begin the job hunt. I haven't had a lot of time for video games lately, but I did manage to pick up Metal Gear Solid 4. I was so impressed by this game, that it inspired me to go back and complete all of the other MGS games leading up to it -- a feat that I have not previously ventured to accomplish. While the gameplay in MGS 4 is far superior to the others, at least the story in the old games is timelessly stellar.
My Recent Reviews
Cool NES box-art in the 80's was oftentimes deadly. The Game COPS find this out first-hand in one of their earlier adventures filled with action and sadness
They're Back. Episode 3: "Death Takes a Holiday," chronicles one of the Game COPS' earlier adventures. The Game COPS don't sleep until the streets are ridden of bad games.
"Straight up now tell me is it gonna be you and me together oh oh oh." -- Paula Abdul. Actually the only thing relevant from those lyrics is the "Straight up" part. The following is another candid video blog from me to you.
flickds does not have any recent activity. What a slacker! Maybe you should send flickds a private message and ask, "Where are you hiding?"
