It’s been a long time since the last update of any news, reviews, or micellaneous around the house; but what I found may blow your mind away.
To start the roller coaster up, we’ll take a trip down memory lane at Gamespot drama blog with Subyman, as he takes on Older Games. To summarize the whole speeach, I shall use user ‘hotdiddykong’ comment on this:
“Here’s my opinion on why that statement is true:
1.two company’s are hooked on 3-4 types of games
2.in this era, if a game is colorful newer players will consider it childish
Back then nobody cared about anything except if the games are fun, NOW its being judged by a bunch of things, but its all about nostalgia that tries to bring old stuff back again and by that I mean Nintendo and sega”.
And to that I have to agree; some people have underappreciated the true value a game may have just because it is colorful, they only follow the sheep herd to more realistic gaming. The bad thing right now (at least in my eyes) realistic gaming used to be popular from 2005 to 2009, now gaming companies don’t know what to pull out of their hats so it could ‘sell’ (which is sad).
To add more insult in the industry, there’s a rumor going around with the Call of Duty series and it is ugly like no other (like shooting yourself in the foot). From Gamespot, there’s a video posted on Youtube by a user from 360junkies Forums; in there, he illustrates what may be the next step in Activision line of printing “a required membership to play Call of Duty” (aside from Live membership). Creators and such have posted that: “No, you will not have to ‘Pay to Play’#CODBlackOps Multiplayer either. Rumor -> Squashed,” But without any suggestion of this being offiline or online, this rumor may be poping around the wallet corner.
Now to relief the bad taste from these dissapointments here come more dissapointments from Gametrailers in video form. As they countdown what dissapointed in form of gameplay, misleading characters, hype, and deathstar online; the only exception here is there are some good games given the “you didn’t do it right” face, but in all my opinion of game #9 should have been higher on the list around 7 or 6.
AND NOW for the real treat (not kidding); while exploring the vast land of the safari (net), I’ve found something interesting (sometimes only found in Nico Nico Videos). The first of the discoveries is a game called Megaman 7 (Rockman 7 in Japan), nothing new for you then how about giving it the flip to 8 bit, now that is something. So here is a video from a man named Clementj426 from Youtube playing the game and the link to play the game yourself from Indie Games Blog.
For the last here is two sites with a pint of greatness first up is fan-made version of Megaman X with the famous Vocaloid character Hatsune Miku as X for you to play around from Hobby blog; there is only one warning, it is in Japanese. The second is no brainer the blog site to Indie Games which includes games one can try out here.
And a little easter egg for those who like Dragon Ball Z, here is an OAV (original animation video) based-off the video game released in Japan; the only downside (or upside) it’s in Japanese but with subtitles for one to read.
I thought the computer didn’t save the hard work of me writing this (luckily it did!); and so I’ll go and sort out the crap that the net has given me.
