All About the_antipode
I'm recording podcast #171 with the guys MrCHUP0N and Ryvvn and thought it would be nice to write a little something as ole Petey talks about what he's been playing.
I just want to mention that I've been tooling around with WarioWare D.I.Y. for DS and would like to know if anyone else has the game and is making games. I made a simple target shooting game so far, but upon downloading some of the big name games from the Wi-Fi Connection, I've been inspired to do something a bit more complex... something that needs pen-to-paper writing. If anyone else has the game and would like to share friend codes, drop a comment or send a message so we can check each other's microgames out!
I'm also playing Pokemon HeartGold and am still in the beginning (2 badges, one on the way). Anyone still play Pokemon? I actually didn't want to buy it at first because I already rolled through Silver and Crystal for Gameboy many many many moons ago, but a co-worker showed me the Pokewalker and I kinda fell into the cycle again! I've decided to take a single team up to the Elite Four this time. For the first time I'm going to seriously filter Ditto into my strategy; I hope it works out!
Anyhow, if you have any questions for me or the guys on the Trigames.NET podcast (of course, for episode 172 as we're recording now), feel free to send us mail at email@example.com.
Hey everyone, it's your old friend The AnTiPoDe, spreading some holiday cheer.
This morning my wife presented me with a brand new PS3 for Christmas! I'm pretty stoked, although I am unsure as to what I will get for it. I will most likely focus on exclusives. I'm all updated now and set up on PSN. You can find the ID in the usual location.
I've been finishing a bunch of games -- I'm so proud of myself. Recently, I went through Final Fantasy VIII in about 2 weeks, Final Fantasy VII prior to that, and I managed to complete Mass Effect for the first time in about 45 hours. For the year's end, I would LIKE to finish Prinny (if I'm even on the final boss...) and Assassin's Creed (if I can put my disc in the tray). Next year I will be coming up with some themes and just generally having fun experiencing stuff you all probably have already been through years ago.
How has everyone else's holidays been? Any really cool gifts?
Hey folks, not much time to discuss anything but here's an update:
* I went to Jamaica on July 15th with the family and some friends, got married on July 18th and enjoyed every minute of my trip!
* My birthday passed, it was July 20th. I had a pretty good time while still in Jamaica.
* I finished The World Ends With You and Too Human in the past 2 weeks. Too Human did exactly what everyone else said it would; it got exciting in the last 15 minutes, while the rest of the story wasn't very clearly told. The World Ends With You had a very deep and well told story and the gameplay was insane and difficult at times. There's quite a bit of replay value in this too, which doesn't help me move on to the next game!
* I bought the MadCatz SF4 controller and it feels great to play SSF2THDR on the Xbox! I will definitely pick up SF4 soon and I just might get MvC2 for Xbox, disregarding the fact that I have it and suitable controllers for Dreamcast.
That's about it. Please be sure to check out the Trigames.NET podcast, currently featuring a lengthy solo effort by Pete (aka Ryvvn). Submit questions to our mailbag (mailbag AT trigames DOT net) and we will entertain you with our lovely, possibly non-sequitur answers!
My Recent Reviews
Some people just don't have opinions. Like the_antipode.
Long long run near the end of the game. Tough stuff.
That quest where you have to blow up Triad vans. This one gets a bit out of hand.
Just a hint at how insane Defend Your Castle can get on the Wii.
the_antipode does not have any recent activity. What a slacker! Maybe you should send the_antipode a private message and ask, "Where are you hiding?"
