Going for Gold

In DS, Wii on March 28, 2007 at 3:08 pm

Mario : The most famous plumber ever.
Sonic : The most famous hedgehog ever.
The Olympics : The most important Sports event ever.

Three things I like, all squeezed into a DS and Wii game. This should be interesting.

Wii Mobster

I got my copy of The Godfather : Blackhand Edition today. Interesting game. There are many ways you can beat the stuffing out of your enemies using the Wiimote in a “Wii Sports Boxing” fashion and the gun gameplay is an interesting mix of lock-on and shoot and Wiimote precise pointing. But I won’t go too much into detail here. I have to keep something for my review!

Apparently, Game Access is in Upside-Down, Québec.

Yay! Another filler game. Game Access requires you to have 10 games on your “Wanted” list at all times. I don’t have that many games that I really want so I put “filler” games on my list. The last one, Uno 52 for DS, in the #10 spot on my list, just got shipped to me. The Godfather was also a filler game, albeit a more desirable one, that, I believe, was also at the bottom of my list. And all my games seem to be available according to the meter on their site. Really, WTF?

I Just Got an Offer I Can’t Refuse

Sorry, I couldn’t resist. Although not high on my list, my next game coming from Game Access is The Godfather : Blackhand Edition for Wii. Well, at least it’s a Wii game. It sounds interesting, although I have yet to see any of the movies based on it. We’ll see, I guess.

Rental Review Round 1 Over

In DS, Wii on March 18, 2007 at 5:04 pm

Yes, I’m done. I played both Chibi-Robo and Cooking Mama. They were both pretty fun. I’m also done with the Rental Review for Chibi-Robo. You can catch it on the-alt.net . That means I’m done with both my rented games! Cooking Mama is already in the mail and Chibi-Robo will probably be leaving tomorrow. I have my fingers crossed to get Wii games this time (although, I wouldn’t mind trying out Spectrobes for the DS).

I hope he doesn’t ask himself why he’s so hated.

Let’s start from the beginning. Jack Tompson, the lawyer known for pissing off anyone who enjoys, makes or sells video games, has given a statement about the fact Take-Two, who he just sued for the upcoming GTA IV and Manhunt 2, sued him.

Ever had a moment where you can’t believe what you’re reading. Yeah, well, I got one of those moments.

The man essentially goes ahead and says something along the lines of “Man, they’re idiots” and quotes the Bible, without giving any explanation why TT’s move is so dumb. And, really, how much of a religious fanatic do you need to be to have been “praying, literally, that Take-Two and its lawyers would do something so stupid, so arrogant, so dumb, even dumber than what they have to date done” . Yes, those where his own words.

Big Mama

I played pretty much all there is to play of Cooking Mama and put up a short, Rental Review for it on the-alt.net. Enjoy!

You… Got… Games.

In DS, Wii on March 15, 2007 at 10:11 pm

I received my first batch of games from Game Access. I’m really liking Chibi-Robo. Not the most stylish game but it’s still fun. As for Cooking Mama, it can be described as WarioWare in a kitchen. I’m planing to make what I call a “Rental Review” for both. A “Rental Review” would be a short summary of my thoughts on a game with my recommendation if you should rent, rent before buying, buy or avoid a game.

Forums and Channels

I finally got to re-building the forums! I also added my article with mock-ups about a redesign of the Wii Menu to the-alt.net . Incase you wanted to know.

So Much for New Stuff

In DS, Wii on March 12, 2007 at 8:35 pm

My first set of games are coming and apparently, they don’t have any new Wii games available! I have such games on my “Wanted” list as the new Sonic and Elebits. I’m getting Cooking Mama for the DS. OK… not to bad. I’m also getting Chibi Robots. Great. Two games about chores. Well I don’t entirely mind. I wanted to try both. But I would rather get two Wii games. I’ll make sure to fill my list with them next time. 🙂
