I paid money for this(My worst video game of 2017)

2017 was an outstanding year for gaming, from the releases of strong Playstation exclusives like Tales of Berseria, Yakuza 0, Gravity Rush 2, Nier Autonoma, Horizon Zero Dawn, etc., to the return to form with Resident Evil 7, to the release of Nintendo's biggest hit in a while, the Nintendo Switch, to rave reception on top of releasing juggernauts like Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey, among others. But like every year, there's always the shitshows trailing it, such as the gross and gr

My Top 5 Best/Worst Friends Forever comics(Spoilers)

Today marks the end of the IDW Friends Forever comic line featuring Princess Luna and Celestia as the last pairing and while...it's not the worst comic ever, it easily could've been so much better, considering it's the final comic in the line, and considering it's a comic about the sisters, it could've been much more This just got me to think back to the comics, namely which ones were dumpster fires and which ones managed stand out and shine Worst 5) Granny Smith and the Flim Fl

Final Thoughts on Season 6(something I need to get off my chest)

If anyone has been following me in the past few weeks you'd know that I haven't been very fond of Season 6 as a whole, and while I can't say it was a total loss, as it still delivered on a few things, and had plenty of good episodes, but after giving it much thought though, my feelings towards it still haven't changed, in fact my feelings have actually worsened, and if I was suddenly allowed to live in a universe where S6 didn't exist I wouldn't miss it at all. This is the worst I've ever felt w

Grand Theft Auto Springfield - Simpsons Hit & Run(PS2/Xbox/Gamecube/PC) Review

For how long The Simpsons has ran on TV, you'd expect them to churn out a bunch of games. And they did, and unfortunately, and unsurprisingly, a lot of them turned out to be crap, with only a small handful of games worth trying. The Simpsons Hit & Run is part of that weird era from 2000-2007 where they try to parody what ever was popular at the time before going all out with The Simpsons Game. We had Simpsons Wrestling(an awful parody of Wrestling games), Simpsons Skateboarding(an awful paro

Totally Not Crazy Taxi - Simpsons Road Rage Review(PS2, Xbox, Gamecube)

There was a point in time(between 2001 to 2007) where the Simpsons began churning out a few games that were very unsubtle rip-offs/clones of other very successful and popular games at the time(like wrestling games, Tony Hawk, GTA, etc.) with mixed results to say the least, ranging from great, like Hit & Run and The Simpsons Game(2007), to outright abysmal like The Simpsons Skateboarding and Wrestling. The Simpsons Road Rage is very different on the other hand, it's easily the least subtle ri

10 Wrestlemania Matches that were better than their main events

Despite being the WWE's biggest show of the year, not every Wrestlemania can turn out good, and there's bound to be some stinkers. This also holds true for the show's main event, which needs to hold the responsibility of ending the show with a bang, but there are some main events that ends the show on a whimper. This also increases the chances for other matches to shine, hell there's also those times where a 'Mania will always have a show-stealer whether it be a better wrestling match or just mo

Bayoformers - Transformers Devastation Review(PS3/PS4/360/One/PC)

Back since the franchise was first created, Transformers and video games never meshed as well as it should have. Despite a few great games here and there, such as the two Cybertron games by High Moon Studios(War/Fall of Cybertron, both of which are fantastic) and even the PS2 game(which I've never played, but has been recommended to me several times), Transformers games are usually expected to be pretty bad. However, last year just before E3, it was revealed that Platinum Studios, the mastermind

Gaming Mysteries: I wonder if anyone ever knew that Disney had an E3 press conference in 2007

Just gonna leave this here. If you thought Sony 2006, Nintendo 2008, Microsoft 2010, Konami 2010, PC 2015, or a majority of Ubisoft/EA conferences were awkward, you haven't seen nothing yet     An Unknown and hard to find video clip of different moments of an E3 Conference Disney had in 2007. The info of the conference has been recorded, but footage of the conference itself is incredibly rare. As far as I know, this is the only video of the conference there is, but if anyone knows where t

Fall of the Roman Empire(Royal Rumble mini-review/rant)

So 2016 starts for WWE with their first PPV of the year, the Royal Rumble and for the first time in a long time I loved it, both the match and the overall PPV as a whole. It had a lot of great spots and nice surprises, and lots of great set-ups for future feuds. A lot of the wrestlers had their moments to shine. Seeing Braun Strowman eliminate Kane and Big Show put gave me relief that they weren't gonna pull the same shit they did last year with those two. AJ Styles was great to see and looked a

Late random thoughts on Star Wars The Force Awakens(Spoilers)

- Excellent use of returning cast - Loved Rey, Finn, BB-8 and Kylo Ren(more on him soon). Great additions to the Star Wars Universe - Fin in particular is my favorite new character - Kylo Ren is very scary and intimidating - Also not hot on Snoke - Fuck you BB-8, why do you have to be so adorable? - Out of all the armies(including the old stormtroopers, clones, etc) I love the First Order Stormtroopers the most, both intimidating yet funny - But for the love of Christ please keep you mask on, yo

Was gonna make a list of 2015's gaming controversies....

But my computer shat the bed right when I finished, deleting everything I worked on, and discouraged me from redoing the entire thing...   Besides it's mostly Konami, so here's instead another blog post with a bunch of Konami related pics     Also, in case your interested, other things on that list include: - SJWs ruining games - EA messing up Star Wars - Activision with a lot of money to burn - An example on how not to do kickstarter - Nintendo hating youtube - Sony screwing up B

Xenoblade X has finally arrived!

I lucked out on getting the Special edition of Xenoblade X, but I'm glad I did because it's awesome(and I'm gonna show it off because I'm such a show-offy sack of crap anyway)     Everything that came with it(USB drive with all a few notable songs, artbook, art-card and the game obviously)     At first I was sad it didn't come with the Steelbook like the EU version did, but the reversable cover more than makes up for it     The art-card is smaller but nicer than expected.

Top 10 worst final bosses ever(Warning: Spoilers!)

When a game comes to a close, they often end with a final, satisfying challenge, often in the form of a boss fight, with the player using everything they learned to overcome it. Unfortunately even the best games can deliver a final boss the is completely underwhelming compared to everything else you've gone through throughout the game. Sometimes the ending can be satisfying enough for you to forgive it, but more often than not, the boss fight can sour your opinion of it.   Just like every othe

Things Cloud's inclusion in Smash Wii U/3DS has taught me

Ramblings of a Smash Bros and Final Fantasy fanboy, GO!             Anyone is possible   Ok, so maybe that's not entirely true. I'm sure suggestions regarding characters like Spongebob, Goku, Shrek, etc., are regularly thrown in the garbage. But the point is, absolutely NO one expected Cloud to appear in Super Smash Bros, prompting one of the biggest surprises in the series since Snake's reveal in Brawl. Hell no one though we would get another "Snake" but here it is.   Cloud's noto

"Let the Bloodshed Begin!" - No More Heroes(Wii)

The Wii was an...interesting console to put it best. It was the one 7th gen console to come out without banking on power like the PS3 and 360. On the contrary, it was severely underpowered compared to the other consoles, I'd say it was a little more powerful than the OG Xbox(or 2 Gamecubes taped together, as many people would say). It was all intentional as the Wii's main selling point was the Wii-mote and its motion-controls, which had varying degrees of success. Unfortunately, this would cause

GOTCHA! - Apollo Justice Ace Attorney review(DS)

Apollo Justice is the fourth game in the Ace Attorney series and the first game to fully utilize the DS's key features. It is also the first game that takes major risks with the series by breaking away from the first 3 games by giving us both a new main character and almost entirely new cast to interact with.                                       Story   This game takes place 7 years after the events of Trials and Tribulations, and a lot has happened since then.

In A World Covered By Endless Water: Megaman Legends Review(PS1, N64, PS3, PSP, PSV)

Megaman Legends is a very interesting game. Before it every Megaman or Megaman X game had always been an 2D action, side-scrolling platformer. Megaman Legends, however, was a completely alien experience for fans; rather than running from one side to another on a 2D plane shooting every bad guy and taking on an army lead by madmen, you were instead put into a full 3D world exploring ruins and discovering treasure while making your way through mysterious robots and thwarting pirates. It was a whol

Darker than a Moonless Night - Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations Review(DS, 3DS, Wii, iOS) - WARNING: SPOILERS

Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations is the third and final game of the original Ace Attorney trilogy(and was originally intended to be the final game period). After the first two games, this one had the role of wrapping up Phoenix's story line as well as several character arcs that were present during those first two games. Does the game live up to the expectations set by the first two as well as serve as a satisfying conclusion to the original trilogy?   Warning, there may be some spoilers.

No Apollo's Here - Ace Attorney: Justice For All review(DS, 3DS, Wii, iOS) - WARNING SPOILERS

Quickly after the success of the first Ace Attorney game, Capcom quickly followed it up with Ace Attorney: Justice For All. After establishing an interesting world and cast of characters in the first game, everyone was excited to see what they could do with the second game. However, with the bar set high on the first one, will the second game be able to meet those expectations?   Also much like the first Ace Attorney, Justice For All is a remake of the second game on the GBA, and was the first

OBJECTION - Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney(DS, 3DS, Wii, iOS)(WARNING: SPOILERS)

The Ace Attorney series by Capcom is one of the most surprising games I have ever played in my life. On paper it just sounds like an absolute bore: a game about a defense attorney defending their client when they're charged with murder. Doesn't sound like anything you can see working as a video game. Yet, leave it to Capcom to turn such a concept into a franchise full of charm, heart, humor and fantastic stories that is still going strong for over a decade. The first game in the series, Phoenix

5 examples of bad voice acting that added to a game's charm

Nowadays, it's expected for a game to have decent voice acting, and in a AAA game's case it's almost always required to have Hollywood level VAs working on your games, with popular actors like Peter Dinklage, Kiefer Sutherland, Patrick Stewart, and etc., often lending their voices in various different titles, but back then, it wasn't always the case. Somewhere in between the 4th and 5th gen developers finally began to focus on what more things they can do with the extra power they had, and were
