The unwarranted attack on video games continues and this time it comes in a small amount from an unlikely source. Also some fun announcements like new versions of Divekick and cheap Virtual Console games. Join us for all of this and much more as we “drop da mic” on episode 25 of the Hart & Usagi Podcast!
A new version of SOPA/PIPA/ACTA/CISPA is here and it’s definitely no better than any of those. It’s called the Trans-Pacific Partnership. As I’ve done in the past I urge you to please take the time to learn more about it and sign this petition against it. Thank you very much.
The last time I checked in I was at mission ten of Devil May Cry. I have since beaten the game, but it was on Easy. It was quite the fun game as Usagi704 has said himself in his Review Quickies, Vol. 12 and on Hart & Usagi Podcast episode 18. One day I shall return to the game and battle the forces of Mundus on Normal.
I’ve also finished Mortal Kombat II twice. The first time was on the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection so I could get the last few trophies. The tactic I used was to select Jax and sweep the opponent, jump back making them jump forward, then I’d jump toward them with a kick and hit Block to do the Backbreaker. Once I got to the bosses I’d continue and choose Kitana and do the Fan Lift into Fan Toss. This doesn’t make it completely easy, but it helps a lot. This tactic also works on the SNES version, but not on the Genesis. By the way, that version is quite horrible in comparison. It’s amazing how much is missing from it especially on the sound/music side.
I played Spyro: Year of the Dragon solely because of when madtyger said to me that these original PlayStation titles was what made her a lover of video games. Everything revolves around collecting lots of eggs and a ton of gems. It’s a fun time, but as some games of the time tend to do, they want you to do annoying objectives like freeze cats and push them into hockey goals to get more eggs. It’s something I can’t stand to do in an otherwise mellow game. I’m at a point where I only have those options to get more eggs to open new levels. I’m done.
Finally I picked up used copies of The Darkness II, F.E.A.R. 3, and Power Rangers Samurai from GameFly for $12 each.
