I demand that Zelda’s next game be a Majora’s Mask!

majoraThere was once a game in the Zelda series that tried something amazing, and went from 2D to 3D for the very first time! It was called The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of time, and it was… you know… um… AMAZING. Series creator Shigeru Miyamoto then wanted to a follow up to that game utilizing the same engine they took forever to make, and that very unique game was… The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask!

Now it is 2017, and Wii U and Switch got a brand new Zelda that really thought outside of the original Zelda formula, and that game was The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild. Now that they have this revolutionary game engine… why not take what they learned after that game came out and create a game using it’s assets, and make a new Zelda game.

groundhogDream? After life? Hyrulian ambassador to The Mushroom Kingdom? Whatever excuse Nintendo comes up with, I’m fine with it. Maybe it’s a game that has you choose between Link and Zelda or even Linkle… whatever, it doesn’t matter. Give me some more traditional Zelda temples, and heck… you could even re-use Majora’s time travel elements!

link and midnaZelda games take a lot of time to make, and The Wii U saw that even if you pump out re-releases/remakes/3rd party attempts, that wont keep fans happy. I think Nintendo taking a Majora’s Mask strategy with their next Zelda game is the safest and best thing for everyone… because Zelda fans are thirsty for more more more.

WHAT IF THEY TURNED BREATH OF THE WILD’S ENGINE INTO A SEQUEL TO MAJORA’S MASK, AND LINK FINALLY FINDS NAVI!

Hey….

10 Xbox original games I want to be BC

In no particular order, here are the games for the original Xbox that I think would be awesome to play:

Capcom vs. SNK 2, Mortal Kombat Armageddon, SVC Chaos, Stubbs The Zombie, Panzer, Dragoon Orta, Jet Set Radio Future, Dead or Alive Ultimate, Taito Legends 1, Taito Legends 2, and Ultimate Spider-Man

Some of these games are not exclusive to the console, with Capcom vs. Snk 2 amd Ultimate Spider-Man appearing on other consoles and Taito Legends and Dead or Alive Ultimate in fact being multiple games… but wouldn’t it be amazing to be able to just pop these discs into a new system and play it?

Here are the games that we did get today that are now backwards compatible:

  • Black.
  • BloodRayne 2.
  • Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge.
  • Dead to Rights.
  • Ninja Gaiden Black.
  • Fuzion Frenzy.
  • Grabbed by the Ghoulies.
  • The King of Fighters Neowave.

Their list is pretty good.. and I unfortunately picked up KOF Neowave… which is terrible. If Capcom vs. SNK 2 was able to be re-released on PS3, than I hope we can get the same treatment on a current gen console, and maybe SNK will be allowed to re-release SVC Chaos. Also, Taito’s back catalog of games like Qix and Puzzle Bobble? Yes please!

Anyways, what are some other awesome Xbox games to maybe look forward to seeing on Xbox One?

Saturday Morning Cartoons

10-17-2017_2-32-33_PMI haven’t really been watching anything lately, as I’ve been playing a lot of South Park: Fractured But Whole. This follow up to South Park: The Stick of Truth is pretty interesting, and I love what it says about gender, race, etc. but dislike the minor bugs/glitches in this game. Also, I’ve had to do things… terrible things that I was not okay with… which, you know… that’s South Park!

10-21-2017_1-22-05_AMI hope Ubisoft takes this engine, which is a pretty good tactics based RPG, and makes more games possibly outside of Matt and Trey’s South Park Cartoon… say… My Little Pony maybe? Something that isn’t so surprisingly sad and depressing as this game…Oh, also there is a my little pony reference or two in this game, so come on…

10-21-2017_1-47-03_AMI know they are purposely trying to make me feel sad about my character, ‘The New Kid,’ but darn it… it is working. Also, I feel bad for some character in this town, especially Kenny’s sister. She has a fake window with a bright and happy sun outside. Kenny is a good older brother to her, and I feel he helps shelter her from their sad reality.

Expect a full review of South Park: The Fractured But Whole at a later date.

 

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is a mistake

The latest, but possibly not greatest, Marvel vs. Capom game is a matter of weeks away, and I could not feel more bland. The characters in the base game are not as amazing as previous entries, and a lot of the new characters are DLC such as Black Panther, and that is sad. The overall success of The Marvel Cinematic Universe, at this point, has caused a lot of fatigue, and focusing so much on those films aesthetically… *sigh*

umvc3rosterI mentioned in the title that this game is a mistake… well, what would have been the correct thing for both Marvel and Capcom to have done for a new entry? Expanding Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

Do not get me wrong, I was not a huge fan of vanilla MVC3 and even Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 did not completely make up for things… so why do I want that game expanded upon? Because it had the potentially to be the next Marvel Vs. Capcom 2, at least in roster count once you include all of the DLC costumes and alternate skins in both versions of MVC3.

mvc2sortofrosterMVC2 had 56 heroes to choose from, which sounds great until you realize that some of those 56 were characters like War Machine who started out as a recolor of Iron Man, Servebot who is a super tiny character, and a second wolverine with bone claws and only the slightest difference from the adamantium clawed incarnation.the last version of MVC had 50 characters without using cheap things such as that, and that is quite honestly… really remarkable, all things considered.

Zero_DLC_psd_jpgcopyCharacters that were basically stat and color edits such as Dark Sakura, Shadow Lady, Hyper Venom, etc in past MVC games were mostly absent in MVC2 and on. What if in MVC IV, they had brought that idea back? There is no telling how many interesting characters they could have made with minimal effort. Not only that, but the DLC character models were not re-skins, but brand new models. Instead of Zero looking like Zero, they gave him Megaman X’s character model! Spencer from Bionic Comando’s alternate was his Bionic Commando: ReArmed appearance.

These characters, as well as other already existing character skins such as Black Spider-Man, Red Hulk, etc, legitimately could have been different playable characters with their own moves with very little work done on the game. Slap that together with some Sonson-big-mvc2characters from Street Fighter IV and V, maybe a few other existing models laying around, and role back the system to the most popular one: MVC2, and it would have been very big. That alone would get it the number #4, and we haven’t even really created anything new for it yet.

MVC2 had 8 or 9 new-ish characters including characters like Son Son, Marrow, and Cable, so throw in something like that, and BAM… 85-90 character roster, EASY.

Instead, we have a neutered character roster with reused assets from Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 for more than the cost of a full retail game. Awesome guys.

Frank West is Back!

FrankWestIn Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite, Dead Rising’s first protagonist Frank West is back, and his original voice actor T.J Rotolo will be voicing him instead of the recent Dead Rising 4’s voice actor Ty Olsson. Rotolo played Frank West in the previous Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds as well as Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. It should be noted that Peter von Gomm played Frank West in 2008’s Wii game Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.

Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite will be out on September 19th, 2017.

 

What to do once you are bored with LTTP?

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to The Past is an amazing game for the Super Nintendo, and it’s being re-released in September on the SNES classic mini thing that almost no one will actually be able to buy. Well… what do you do once you do beat that phenomenal game? Well, thankfully there are some options, some of which can be done on a Super Nintendo even.

1.) Just dicking around – Exploring and testing scenarios is always fun. There are glitches and easter eggs, and then there is The Magic Powder that can turn things into other things, and not too long ago I discovered something on youtube and I had to do it myself:

Beat The Game Fast – There is a glitch that lets you jump off of a wall after first saving Zelda, save and quitting the game, getting hit, and then walking through walls. You can navigate yourself upwards and easily discover where the triforce is in under 12 minutes easily.

Explore What Happens After Beating The Game Fast!

Explore The World Withing Walls! Using the previously mentioned glitch, you will notice that every single Dungeon is on the same map, and that you can do some pretty wild things that aren’t obtaining the triforce. Like getting out of Hyrule Castle, using Hyrule Castle’s Big Key for anything that needs a big key, etc. Also, you can obtain Quake crazy early just randomly. Exploring and seeing what you can do where is fun.

Play Capcom’s GBA Port – It also has some new features, Link has voice clips, and if you connect with friends using the GBA link cable, you get to play the new Zelda 4 swords adventure. Yes… this is largely still just LTTP with a different aspect ratio. What’s wrong with that?

34381-Legend_of_Zelda,_The_-_A_Link_to_the_Past_(USA)_[Hack_by_Euclid+SePH_v1.0]_(~Legend_of_Zelda,_The_-_Parallel_Worlds)-4Play a Different Game: Hacking a game is time consuming and very different, especially if it is a major graphical overhaul as well with a completely different map. The Legend of Zelda – Parallel Worlds is just that, and if you purchase it on a cartridge, which you should never do, the creator gets no money at all, just the scammer who ‘repro-ed’ it. It’s actually sickening. Seriously, you are not one upping a major company, but are in fact screwing over a fellow fan as well as an indie game developer. All that being said… this hack is quite hard so you may not want to spend $40 on it unless you are using something that does save states.

The_Legend_of_Zelda_Ancient_Stone_TabletsThe Legend of Zelda: Ancient Stone Tablets – This game is nuts. To explain it, I feel like I have to explain things like that the Super Famicom had a satellite add on from St. Giga, and… okay. So this game is a rom hack of what was made from St. Giga, and it runs on a timer… and you do not play as Link but the boy or girl mascot from St. Giga, and this is set in the canonical time when Link was off doing stuff in the Game Boy game. Random stuff is happening all of the time. This isn’t LTTP as you know it, and that is an amazingly awesome if crazy thing. I wish Nintendo would re-make it.

Replay The Game with CD Quality Audio and Cutscenes – WHAT IS THIS?! I have no idea. This looks and sounds awesome, but I think Nintendo copyright claimed the creators of it… so you might not actually be able to do this… easily… right now.

Item Randomizer – Late last year, a team made a tool that allowed you to randomize all of the items in a rom of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to The Past. They made sure that the game is still completely beatable too.

Co-operative speed running – This one is strange and just came out due to someone modding the SNES9x emulator to allow memory sharing between certain things such as dungeons and key items. Weird stuff happened, and it was enjoyable seeing these people test this hack out.

And there you go! The Legend of Zelda is such a great game, and hopefully the above things can help you enjoy this game even more.

I quit Youtube?

I had grown weary months back when I was doing videos covering fighting games last February. I stopped doing those videos, but I still occasionally posted a few videos. One video I made but never posted suggested that I just… wasn’t feeling it anymore with fighters and games in general. That video is below:

I later put most of my videos to private, and a lot of them are still kept private. Why? Because I’m a fat piece of s*it according to quite a few people who have watched my videos yet never made even one of their own. This got me… also, a lot of the videos that I like to make are sadly just not do-able on youtube, such as Nintendo related videos and Blind reacts to trailers, and I was never going to make any money off of it… so it seemed like I should just hang in the towel.

For some reason, I made two more videos, and I dunno… maybe I’m not quite as done as I thought I was?
