I’ve had a number of topics on my mind over the last few days and I figured that I’d share them. These may or may not be gaming related. You’ve been warned.
I participated in an impromptu ’80s Q&A with Usagi704 and a friend of ours recently. I’m more in the background when I talk and I don’t do much of that in the video. The questions revolved around favorites of the 1980s whether it be a TV show, movie, video game, etc. I thought it came off pretty entertaining and I think you’ll find it that way too. :)
From what I understand the television show Lost had its first show of its last season this last Tuesday. I kind of got the hint from all of the updates on Twitter about it.
I’ve never understood the appeal of the show. A smoke monster doesn’t exactly do anything for me. That sounds more like a crappy wrestling angle involving the Ultimate Warrior vomiting or something similar. :lol:
I remember watching one episode a couple of years ago and being, well, for a lack of a better term (or because I really want to make this pun), lost on Lost. I can’t say I’ll miss hearing about the show after this season.
Sony’s PSN exclusive reality show called The Tester had a trailer released earlier this week. After seeing it I can honestly say that I don’t have any interest in watching it.
The people on that show look and act ridiculous trying to compete to get the worst job in the gaming industry. Just watch the trailer and you’ll see a lot of crying! Yes, these idiots actually cry over a crappy job that they obviously don’t understand what it involves. What’s worse is that this job is made to look like it’s hard to get when it’s clearly not after hearing talk about it on the HotSpot.
Even David Jaffe as a judge won’t entice me to watch.
SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 4: EPISODE 1
The teaser trailer was released by Sega yesterday and I’m sure it was the biggest news of the week.
I noticed some people mentioning that the animation didn’t look quite right. I’d like to know what those people were watching because I didn’t see any gameplay footage of the game to determine that, though it was said to be in there on Sega’s website.
In fact, I thought that’s what they were going to show, gameplay footage. Because of that I was underwhelmed by the 48 seconds that were shown. I can’t imagine any big fans of the series were any more excited than they previously were.
MORTAL KOMBAT: ARMAGEDDON
I don’t mean to disappoint, but I don’t have any new fight footage for you to view.
It’s been pretty frustrating taking on Usagi704, but that doesn’t have to do with any skill he may have over me (which he does). It’s with myself.
I feel like I should be able to take him out with my Kabal or Jarek, but nothing comes of it. It feels like the game’s very limiting in what I can do to retaliate against his attacks. It also doesn’t help that button input can be sluggish from time to time. That’s not lag as I’ve been extremely surprised and happy with the game’s online performance.
I do keep going back to MKA a lot recently so that says something for it. I’m sure I’ll get more fun fights uploaded soon.
I got a few new games and that required a broken promise from me to get nothing new until God of War III. I suck in that regard. At least the games only cost $20 total.
I couldn’t pass up a decent shoot-’em-up that I didn’t know about called Chaos Field. It also serves as another Gamecube game for the very small amount that I have.
A popular PC game that became free a number of years ago was Tribes. I was unaware that there were any console ports of the series. As it turns out Tribes 2 became Tribes: Aerial Assault on the PS2. It has online play and, yes, I did check it out and it still runs too! Nobody was on at the time, though.
Finally I found a cheap copy of Street Fighter EX3. I was never that fond of it, but the game was one that I had years ago so I wanted it back for that reason.
That’s all of the topics I have for this time. Thanks for reading!
