  1. This is an 8-Bit cover of 'You're In My Head Like a Catchy Song', a song from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic - S07E13: The Perfect Pear. I really liked that episode, which motivated me to do something productive, so I did an 8-bit version of the song soon after watching the episode. Made in FamiTracker. I'm still kinda bad at it, so don't expect fireworks. Enjoy!
  2. I started a thread on this before, but that was just to say I was stuck. But now that I've gotten the gumption to start this hack again, I figured I would start this anew. I am making a pony hack of Final Fantasy 1! It works out, because there are six main characters in the show, and six classes in game! I have a bunch of ideas that I would love to start working on, but the biggest issue I'm going to have is sprites, and I would love your help with that. I'm going to devote an entire section to ideas I have about who goes where, and I'm going to have a section about sprites,. If you don't know what the story of Final Fantasy 1 is: The four orbs/crystals of Earth, Water, Fire, Air, have lost their light, and the four light warriors have come to fix that. They discover that the four fiends have taken control of the elements. Their first mission is to rescue the princess from Garland, a knight who went bad. Once they get the orbs back,They head back to the temple where they found Garland, use the orbs to travel to 2000 years back, where they find that Garland is the one who set the fiends, the fiends send him back, creating a loop. Garland uses the four powers to become Chaos, the final boss, who gets defeated. For the pony version, it's going to be the powers of four of the Elements of Harmony, but it won't be specific which ones, since the player picks the characters, and the four fiends are Nightmare Moon, Chrysalis, Discord, and Sombra. However, the Element of Magic has been stolen too... I will post role ideas and town ideas and such soon, but first I just want to make the thread and get interest. The main thing though, is that for Garland, I wanted to pick Sunset Shimmer, particularly pre reform. They both became bad guys who turned on the kingdom. in the final fight, Shimmer would use the Element of Magic to become her powerful form like in Equestria Girls, just a pony version. Is anyone a good spriter and would like to help? I feel like seeing a good sprite is just the inspiration and motivation I could use to keep working at this. The sprite rules for the NES aren't too complicated. In general, the rule is, Four colors per sprite. three colors are used, and one transparency. For example, I wanted the Garland sprite to be Shimmer, and this is the one I seemed to like the most. The sprite would be 32x32. I could try to do it, but I don't know how well I would do. this sprite is only used once with no recolors, but most of the other sprites do that. Does anyone here have skill with sprite making? Some of them would be easier to do since I could find vectors to base from, but some would be more unique and more difficult. There are a lot of ideas I have, and I would love to discuss them with you in another post soon. Thanks! Here is a sample screenshot of what I started to work on years ago. Notice the TWO thrones? (Would this go in Trixie's Tricks since it's asking for help, or since this is a game thread, it's fine in this board?)
  3. I'm having difficulty finding anyone else that signed up for Nintendo's new online service for the Switch. This is despite the fact that it's so affordable ($20 a year, which divides into less than $2 for each month). Basically, I'd like to find people to exchange friend codes with and maybe play the complimentary NES online library with, along with the upcoming Smash Bros Ultimate.
  4. There is absolutely no sex, violence, horror, language, drugs, or gambling whatsoever in this game, and the ESRB wasn’t established until 1994. Nevertheless, the game was still banned anyway! How in Equestria did that happen?
  5. I just found out yesterday that the NES Classic Edition is coming back in the stores on June 29th! When this month is over, I'm gonna put money aside for the system, plus a Controller! At the price of $80, this might imply that it will come bundled with a second controller, if you factor in the following: Cost of Unit Originally: $60 Cost of Additional Controller: $10 Cost of keeping scalpers from gouging us just to live in Donald Trump's America: $10! And if you must ask, I'm gonna buy it for convenience, and adding in games that I own, whether I bought them digitally or otherwise. Why else would I support them, and keep from letting inferior companies like AtGames make these same consoles, but make it with terrible sound emulation and inferior tech? I do it to SUPPORT Nintendo. Which is why I would NEVER buy a Raspberry Pi just to SPITE Nintendo and save even MORE money, money that could be used to buy a soldering kit and a CR2032 Battery to fix my Gamecube's Clock. I'd need a Gamebit to get into the system, and risk removing the Shadow the Hedgehog Decals on it. And I don't need to be nagged by @SaburoDaimando like I'm Shredder and he's Krang asking to build a new body for him!
  6. Okay guys so here's the deal. I am thinking about getting a new console and there are two consoles in particular, The Xbox One and the Nintendo Entertainment System. Now I know what you're thinking? Why the Nintendo Entertainment System? Well that's because there are so many great games for it like Super Mario Bros 1, 2j, 2 and 3, Metroid, The Legend of Zelda, Zelda II, Castlevania 1-3, Ducktales 1 and 2, Darkwing Duck, Mega Man 1-6, Metal Storm, Sweet Home, Batman, Adventure Island, Blades of Steel, Kid Icarus, Battle Toads, Contra. Just so many great games for it, more than I can list and it's a console that, to me, is really worth getting. Plus, there are more games being made for it, like Swords n Runes, Battle Kid the Fortress of Peril, Haunted Halloween 86, Mad Wizard, Rise of Amondus and not to mention all the Rom Hack carts out there like My Little Pony: Dr, Discord's Conquest, Metroid Rogue Dawn, Castlevania Blood Moon, Simon's Quest Redux, The Legend of Zelda Ganon's Revenge. Etc. Just so many reasons to get a NES. Then we have the Xbox One, the most powerful game console in existence and it also has quite a few gems itself like Halo the Masterchief Collection, Gears of War 4, Super Lucky's Tale, Player Unknown Battlegrounds, Cuphead, Stranger of Sword City, Forza Motorsport, Titanfall and of course Halo 5. I don't know, they both sound good, Which should I get guys?
  7. Based on the accessory for the NES.
  8. Now that I have some sort of experience in sprite hacking NES games, I think I can take some requests. No, I'm not asking for money or anything, Just reply some suggestions and I'll see if I can make it! (Note, I can't do level hacks or anything of that caliber yet, I can only edit sprites right now.)
  9. Anyone who knows me knows I have always loved a good game. My love of gaming started all the way back to the original NES system, and I treasured the hours I spent getting new games, learning them and conquering them. Eventually my old NES gave up the ghost, and the games went off to a pawn shop. Now I am trying to revisit those old classics and recapture some of the magic I felt before. It is no secret I have become somewhat disillusioned with games in the last few years.. they have become bigger, louder and flashier.. but not necessarily better. Not saying they suck, but they just don't capture my attention the way they used to in the past, which is not necessarily their fault, just my own feelings in general. So this is my own personal little adventure to recapture some of that magic... to revisit the past and travel up into the present. Is it going to take a long time? You bet it is.. but that is OK.. I will have fun all the same. And that is what ANY game is supposed to be about. Now, to say I had a lot of NES games is an understatement.... a major understatement... and honestly is a story for another time. But for now let's just say I had a lot of them... and having so many of them, there were games I loved, and games I played once and then hid at the bottom of closets to never be touched again. I went through several systems, all the way up the PS3 where i finally just got tired of it all and slipped out of the market for gaming for awhile. For the sake of simplicity, this blog entry will only be for the NES classic system. I am not sticking to ONLY NES games, and have plans to move up nto SNES, Genesis and later systems as well, and I still may pop on some PS1 and 2 games here and there as well.. but at the moment I am mainly trying to concentrate on NES games. Also, I am mainly concentrating on games I used to own and games I have heard about and just never gotten around to playing that interest me. I won't replay everything nor finish everything... let's face it, some of the old stuff was pure garbage and I won't force myself though that crap... but I will at least mess with it a bit if for no other reason to remind myself why I hated it. I may end up putting up reviews as well.. but I dunno, I have never been keen on reviewing games. I do usually have a couple of games going at once as well. I was playing Dragon Warrior for example for a couple of weeks there, but in that time I also replayed Blaster Master, A Boy and His Blob and Bionic Commando. (Exploding Hitler never gets old!) The main reason for this is my favorite genres are RPGs, but as much as I love them, at times they get tedious and I need to break off and play something else. I am open to suggestions and discussions on the topic as well. I love sharing thoughts and opinions and learning what other people are enjoying. If you do suggest something and it is not something I loathe, or appears like I will loathe, then it will go on the list. I will update this as I have the time and interest. Sometimes work burns me out and sometimes I just am not in the mood to play. Also, just because it is on the list does not mean I will get to it anytime soon since as I said, it will change as I have time and interest.So we will see how it goes. Feel free to message me with any thoughts you may have. And yes, i am mostly running through the alphabet, although that is not a hard fast rule. It is more for convenience than necessity.

  10. OK, honestly I am not much for reviews or playthroughs, I am just not fond of sitting down and trying to write about my thoughts on any game or having people watch me play anything. However I did promise someone I would give it a go, so that is what i am doing. So without further ado, here is my incredibly semi sort of playthrough and review of a classic NES game... 8 Eyes! And by playthrough I actually mean pictures of screen shots with my assorted rambles and comments thrown underneath. I'll try and keep them sort of brief, but no promises. And by review, I mean just my totally awesome and yet irrelevant opinions. I don't claim to be an expert at reviewing games, just an expert on giving my opinion of them. I'll let you know right up front, this story has nothing to do with real eyes, so any ophthalmologists out there thinking you have just found your ultimate wet dream can put those tissues away. 8 Eyes is actually in reference to the 8 stones you have to dally around the world to pick up. The Story: After hundreds of years of chaos, mankind has finally emerged from the ruins of nuclear war. This world of the distant future has once again flourished under the guidance of the Great King, who harnessed the power of the 8 Eyes to rebuild the planet. These strange jewels of power were formed at the eyes, or center, of the eight nuclear explosions which nearly destroyed the Earth. In the wrong hands, the 8 Eyes could cause untold destruction... And now, they have been seized by the Great King's eight Dukes, in a desperate bid to gain control of the world for themselves. They have banished the King to the nuclear wastelands, and already their squabbling threatens to plunge the world into war once again! The task of retrieving the 8 Eyes falls to you, Orin the Falconer, the bravest and mightiest of the King's Guardsmen. With your fighting falcon, Cutrus, you must penetrate each of the 8 Dukes' castles. There you will face the Dukes' soldiers, and battle strange nuclear mutants such as living skeletons, giant wasps, and mud men. You must defeat the monstrous Boss of each castle to retrieve the Jewel of Power he guards. Then, to complete your quest, return the 8 Eyes to the Altar of Peace to await the return of the Great King, so that he may finish the rebuilding of Earth. Your reward will be the eternal gratitude of all mankind! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The gratitude of ALL mankind? What about gold, land or getting to be a contestant on jeopardy? Fuck that gratitude thing! "Hello? Ford Motors? Yes I would like to buy a new SUV... do you take gratitude? You see, i have a whole lot of it in surplus and I thought I would put some of it to use to finally get that babe magnet I've been looking at... and to you know.... *cough* get my mom to quit driving me from country to country to defeat evil and stuff. Hello? Hello?... HELLO!!!?" Besides... I am taking the jewels back from people living in these countries, not sure how grateful they will be for me swiping their knick knacks... I think ALL mankind might be stretching it a bit. So with that out of the way, lets get to the elephant in the room right away when it comes to this game. I am a huge Castlevania fan.. I mean a huge one. That includes the classic series as much as the later games they put out, and holy shit... it doesn't matter whether you are squinting from far away or have your face pressed to the television screen this will pass for a Castlevania game. It is not just a Castlevania clone, it is Castlevania that ducked under the counter and came back up wearing a fake mustache. They literally stole Simon's whip away from him, gave him a pretty tiny dagger, and then tossed a bird side kick in because who doesn't want to bring their pets along when saving the world? Play style... well remember when I said the game is a clone... hell yeah you do because I just finished saying it, AGAIN! I cannot stress how much you seriously cannot play this game without being reminded with every step that this is a Castlevania clone through and through... if Simon took a wet fart, Orin had to change pants. However, where Simon and company get a whip.. you get a sword.... with an awful fucking hitbox. Seriously.. you would have better luck dropkicking the enemies than hitting them with your blade without taking damage yourself. Cutrus is a nice addition to the game to be fair. he is the falcon that flies around grabbing crap for you, leaving dead mice in your pocket for souvenirs and occasionally smacking an enemy. Also he is one the cool ways where 8 Eyes varies from that other game I should stop name dropping, in the fact that he makes 8 Eyes a two player game. That's right, you and a friend can team up. You get to be the mighty falconer with the not-so-mighty sword, your bud gets to be the bird bringing you stuff and occasionally plastering enemies with droppings. In this regard the game can be pretty fun, in solo play though, controlling Cutrus is right up there with using sandpaper toilet paper... you can do it if you have to, but holy crap is it rough... you will probably use a swear word or three! Now one place 8 Eyes blows 'Vania out of the water, is difficulty. You will WISH Dracula would come back after a couple of levels of this game. Some of the levels and enemies feel more like self punishment than actual challenging gameplay. And to make it more vile, that is just on the NORMAL setting! There are two more fucking difficulty levels above that one. Hard and "Go die in a hole weeb". I've beat it on normal, and gotten 3/4 of the way through hard before deciding just running into the wall at top speed gave me the same feelings of pain but without the hand cramps. Screw you very hard, I am not into masochistic entertainment, unless you bring me flowers or something.. then we'll talk. The main issue is just the damn hitbox on your weapon, and some of the more dastardly enemies you will encounter in the levels. The bosses are not too bad once you get used to them, but some of the regular levels are just such a damn pain. Anyway, let's do a sort of walk-through review shall we? Stop reading now if you don't like spoilers of really old retro NES games. So where do we start huh? Well you get to take your pick actually! You can play through any of the levels beside the House of Ruth at your leisure. However, because the developers were dicks they did put in a certain order you should play them in. If you do not play it in this order, the difficulty goes up even higher. You see to make a long story short, as you finish levels, you get new sword power ups, but the power up only effects ONE of the other bosses... so if you get the power up and choose the wrong next level you basically just threw that power up away. So, indeed 8 Eyes gives you an increase in power, so long as you do exactly what it tells to you to do with it. Take that free will! So I am starting in Spain. Because why the hell not? Because I don't want to spend more time cursing than I need to! For post apocalyptic worlds, you don't visit any of the "worlds" actually, just a bunch of houses. No exploring the war torn country-side, just a bunch of plodding around in strangers homes. Where clothes are entirely optional as you shall see. This place does not look too Spanish if you ask me... there are no bullfighting pictures anywhere! What about football (soccer to Yanks) or Flamenco dancers? How can I get into a Spanish mindset without pictures of bulls getting murdered or my favorite sports teams? Oh well, let's go inside anyway.. I know a Jason door when I see one. And I have seen enough Friday the 13ths to know what happens when i go in one. Awfully nice of the people of Spain to label their doors as definitely not emergency exits. Also, that is the happiest bat I have ever seen. Onwards and upwards! What? Castlevania clone? What makes you think so? I am wearing a Batman sidekick costume, this is nothing like a Castlevania game! Ignore those stairs and my appearance walking up them, and that knight at the top and those sort of Medusa heads. Nope, no clones here! Excuse me while I change pants... again. Screw you Simon! Holy crap dude, put on some clothes! Is the apocalyptic future really so bad you have to go around fighting people in your tighty whiteys wearing dirty gym socks? Apparently for the people of Spain it is. But I could be mistaken, he might not be attacking me at all, just working on his high kicks for the High School Musical enactment of The Karate Kid 3. Ah well time for a boss... OMG! Are you a giant Keebler elf? Is that a severed head? Is that a horribly cheap nerf sword? So many questions! This is like a collection of my lamest nightmares all come to life at once. Also what a splendid mustache. Bosses in this game are less of a fight and more of a war of attrition, you just go back and forth popping them and using subweapons and such to stun them... in this case throw some frozen balls to get in some free hits. Another way in which this game differs from Castlevania, is what happens when you beat a boss. You have tea with them!! Served by a skeleton!! This game just got a little cooler I think. Also make note of this scene, since it is far different than all the rest for the most part. I wonder if he is having "green" tea? What a pleasant way to end a particularly difficult disagreement with an an evil duke intent on killing you. Dracula could learn a thing or two about civility from these guys. Anyway.. onward to Egypt! Home of the pyramids and crazy archeologists battling Nazis. Well it is pyramid shaped I suppose... Nice hats guys! The conehead look is apparently hot in Egypt in the far flung future! Or maybe they are just all really huge fans of Ancient Aliens. What am I saying... Ancient Aliens has no fans... people just watch for Giorgio Tsoukalos' hair because it is just so mesmerizing. I once sent it a love letter, but it's agent wrote back that it was currently seeing William Shatner's toupee and the two were quite happy. Needless to say, I was crushed. Anyway.. hey a door! Let's see what's behind it! Hey guys... Dracula called... he is issuing a cease and desist order on the use of his Blood Skeletons. And boy was he pissed! He said you could have the Fleamen though since no one likes them anyway. Seriously, I know different game and all... but fuck fleamen. Strange place to store you toiletries I must say. Don't you people believe in closets and pantries. Oh right.. you're a bunch of undead... what are you doing with toiletries anyway? "Does this smell infected to you?" "Good lord it's all green!!!!" "Well I am a troll monster..." "Oh... right.... yeah, it smells infected." Egypt boss.... Every bodies grandfather! Or maybe that eccentric uncle no one talks about unless the kids are out of the room. Great job matching the robe to your hair color gramps! I bet that took some time to find at your local Wal-Mart in the bargain bins. Again, just use your freeze balls. What the hell? Was the teal not doing it for you? Did orange suddenly become all the rage after your defeat? The waiter is dead, no need to wow him with your fashion sense. Still good at matching the wardrobe to hair color though. "The carpet matches the drapes to... care for a peek?" "No.. no I don't." And with that disturbing encounter out of the way, onward to Italy! Wow.. Italy sure loves their green houses. Also their door switches look like lipstick, just pointing that out. And it is pretty dumb to put the switch to open your front door on the outside of your house. You have to call your neighbors to let you out just to mow your lawn. I bet the owners have to put on parachutes just to go grocery shopping. UTINNI! Man Star Wars is everywhere since Disney got the license. Sorry sir there are no Droids here... in fact this is not even Tatooine! Get the hell out here and back to your own franchise! Where is a Stormtrooper when I actually need one? The fashion faux pas continues! Your choice of horrors....naked Don Rickles or Santa Clause in a diaper. The enemies in this game just love to toe the line with indecent. Of course when you have survived a nuclear holocaust I suppose you can pretty much wear what you want to right? Dude pay attention and get off your cellphone and fight me! "Sorry dude... gotta go, this lame-o here is really affecting my mood... Yeah we can totally play some CoD later. I'll have to get permission from my mom though" And now for a double boss! Well, not really but that is what I am calling it. "C'mon Heathcliff, lets go get your litter box changed.... all of Italy is complaining." "Phew! I'll say!" You actually don't have to kill the cat to beat him... but all it does is get in the way so you might as well. You can get an invincibility in this fight to make it easier for the first part of it. Use the freeze balls for rest of it... hell just use the freeze balls for every boss fight, who am I kidding? Did you just feel the need to take off your coat or something? I feel so overdressed now. So... sorry about killing your cat? Especially after you changed the box. My bad. Maybe you could let some kids play in it or something. Onto India before I get reported to the ASPCA... if they still exist that is. Welcome to India, land of the Taj Mahal... but we are not going there... just another small house.... I wonder have all the people in these countries just moved into one building each and designated it the official "new country"? The accommodations must be horrible! The line for the bathrooms must be insane. "Taste my boxing glove on a spring!" "It tastes terrible!" "Yeah punching all these naked bearded guys in the junk gives it that strong aftertaste" And about those naked bearded guys... clothes must also be a luxury in future India. Either that or the humidity is JUST that bad. You would think with guys running around with spring loaded boxing gloves they would learn to adopt pants with built in cups. I mean what else is anyone going to do with those things? Boss time... and he IS FABULOUS! You don't see wardrobes like that outside of getting dressed in a dark room from a strangers closet these days. And he is bringing back disco in style from the looks of it. Apparently having your ass kicked included having the fashion sense kicked right out of you as well. That might be a good thing for the people of India, since they were getting tired of every Friday being forced to do the YMCA dance. Onto Africa where they certainly are not into doing the hustle.. I hope. I left the 70's for a reason. Hmmm giant doorbell? Giant door...? If King Kong does not answer I will be so disappointed. Of course if he does answer I will have a whole lot more to worry about than a bunch of glittery doorstops and what I will do with 85lbs of gratitude... Seriously... dudes... what is it with no one in the future wearing any clothes and diapers being the preferred armor?? "We are under attack, EVERYONE, get your fetish gear! We will make him so uncomfortable he will have to retreat!" Hah! The jokes on you guys, I got through Custer's Revenge, Conker's Bad Fur Day and The XXX Adventures of X-Man. This is a cake walk! Better just hurry to the boss though, this is starting to creep me out a bit I admit. Wow.. even the boss is under-dressed. You would think if someone was invading your house you would have the good sense to not go out in your under-roos to fight them. By the way, nice fish tale hand... do you know Aqua-Man? And another quick costume change. Looks like you went and put on some armor just so you could have some tea. Glad we understand your priorities fish-boy. I know there is a skeleton serving us, but all he is armed with is teacups and sugar packages... I would imagine that is less dangerous than me with a sharp object. Onward to Germany! Italy called.. they want their house back... or at the very least quit stealing all their green paint! Of course for all I know maybe green is the only color of paint left in the world... that means in Germany all the muppets on Sesame Street will be Oscar and all the Volkswagens will be piled around stop signs. Hey look! A cameo by the face dude from SMB2 whenever you steal a key! Glad to see he is still making a living outside of a Mario game that no one actually likes! I wonder if he is still friends with that dude from Star Trek 5 and dating the Gorgon heads from Castlevania? I would ask him but I see a key over there... "coo coo I'm a bird" "Yes, yes you are. Can we get on with it now?" "Flap flap whooooshhhh" *Face palm* "I am really embarrassed by that whole bird thing, and especially when I laid that egg at the top of the stairs" "Don't worry about it.. at least you are wearing pants" BTW, I notice he did not feel the need to change clothes after getting his ass kicked. I guess once you've pantomimed Big Bird in front of your would be assassin you've done laid all the shame cards on the table. Onto Arabia! Now this actually reminds me of an Arabian setting. I would totally believe it if Jafar answered the door right now. I just hope that stupid parrot is not with him. Seriously... Gilbert Gottfried sucks. He can kill other comedy acts by just having his name shouted out loud during a performance. He is like kryptonite to comedy. Also, it is here I started really getting bored of doing this and tried speeding it up some. "Dirty street-rat! What have you done with Princess Jasmine!" "Robin Williams help me!!!!" "I can show you the world!" "Is it located outside of this house? If so, I'm all yours!" Wow, you traded in your turban for a sailor hat? Or is that a stylish beanie? The world may never know.... and even if it did.. would it care? "This is for those Aladdin jokes, isn't it? And my Gottfried insults" "Yes" And now we are able to tackle the House of Ruth. The House of Ruth also doubles as a Red Cross shelter. Who knew? What!!!! But we had tea together!?? I thought we were friends!! Actually this stage is nothing but a boss rush. You get to fight all of the Dukes over again one after the other, proving tea does not end hostilities between warring nations. Defeat them all and you get to tackle the final boss... no worries though, they are a lot easier this time around in a sense, since you have all your power ups and you get a ton of weapons and items, and your health is refilled after each fight. The one boss missing from the rush is Germany's... I suspect he ended up in one of those burning Volkswagens by the green stop signs on his way to the big fight. Ruth! "will you be my valentine? I love your hat. Also I won't complain this time that someone is not wearing pants" "Sexist pig! Die" "Yikes!" Ruth is actually not too tough.... she attacks with a whip and just stomps back and forth over you. (So many fetishes, so little time...) "You changed dresses just for me? Does this count as a date? Hurry up with the wine skeleton!!!! I'm sorry, the service around here sucks!" Anyway, that is the end of 8 Eyes... well except for.... Placing those damn jewels you have been collecting. Yes, you have to place them in the correct order to win the game. All those fights don't mean squat unless you have been writing down the clues you have been picking up. And there is the ending screen. A nice gargoyle shows up to congratulate you and tell you how awesome and courageous you are for battling through a world without pants. Here is what he says so I don't have to bother putting up screen shots of every single page. Congratulations Orin!! In Fighting Your Way Through The Eight Perilous Castles, You Have Proved That Your Swordsmanship And Falconry Talents Are Great. In Solving The Riddle Of The Eight Jewels, You Have Proved Your Skill As A Logician. These Were Great Tests Of Skill, And Only The Strongest Of Warriors And The Wisest Of Scholars Could Have Completed This Quest. I Realize That There Is Only One Thing More Gratifying Than Coming To The End Of A Great Game, That Is Realizing The Challenge Has Just Begun. Go Now Orin, Another Quest Awaits. In This Second Adventure, Your Skills Will Be Tested As Never Before. If You Are Truly Skilled, You May Be Able To Finish Some Of It! Good Luck! So yeah, there are two more quests after this one... but screw that. Normal mode was a pain in the ass enough as is. I had enough deaths to show for it. Anyway, that is my trip through the world of 8 Eyes. It is not a bad game, but not a great game either. It has enough Castlevania similarities to make you want to send Konami a letter (lol, silly person, Konami does not care about games anymore!), but a few differences to set it apart. This game is challenging, but really due more to aggravating programing in the game itself vs. actual difficulty. I would give the game a 5/10 overall for being different enough to be worth checking out, but aggravating in the controls and ease of play. Sorry for making this so long. I'll work on making them shorter in the future, if I bother with doing anymore of them that is.

  12. I know it's kind of a random blog and some might not be interested. But, you guessed it, i do it anyway. I always thought that the Wii U is a good system to fill your retro needs, because the Virtual Console has some of the best game of all time and some cult classics as downloadable titles Here is my List: NES: Super Mario Bros. Super Mario Bros. 2 (JP) Super Mario Bros. 2 (US/EU) Super Mario Bros. 3 Punch Out Ninja Gaiden NES Open Tournament Golf Castlevania Castlevania 3 Draculas Curse Tecmo Bowl Dr.Mario Metroid Kid Icarus River City Ransom/Street Gangs Wild Gunman SNES: Super Mario World F-Zero Pilotwings Contra 3: Alien Wars Super Ghouls 'n' Ghosts The Legend of Zelda: A link to the Past Street Fighter 2 Street Fighter 2 Turbo Super Street Fighter 2 Street Fighter Alpha 2 Donkey Kong Country Donkey Kong Country 2 Donkey Kong Country 3 Natsume Pro Wrestling Earthbound Kirby Superstar Super Castlevania IV Super Mario Kart Super Mario Picross Super Metroid N64: Super Mario 64 Mario Golf Mario Kart 64 Wave Race 64 1080 Snowboarding Star Fox 64 Mario Party 2 Sin and Punishment GBA: F-Zero: Maximum Velocity F-Zero: GP Legend Fire Emblem Pokemon Pinball: Ruby and Sapphire The Legend of Zelda: The minish Cap Yoshis Island: Super Mario Advance 3 Wario Ware Inc.

  13. I am probably the only guy here, who actually cares about the Wii U Virtual Console, but i write it down anyway. When Nintendo introduced the Virtual Console almost 9 years ago, i freaking loved the idea. It was one of my reasons to buy a Wii back then and i am buying games from there, through the Wii U, especially since now GBA and DS games are also on it. However, i think Nintendo should cut the prices on the NES, SNES and N64 games. They still have the same price tag as they had 9 years ago and since that time, i think the games have lost a bit off worth. Not in the fun factor, i still love these games. But they are quite old (Super Mario Bros. Turned 30 for christ sake.) I would suggest that the NES, SNES and N64 games should atleast be 1 Euro (Dollar) cheaper and the GBA and DS games should remain as they are. What do you think?
  14. Wanted for being unable to turn and for being protagonist in a game, that has mechanics that makes me tears my hairs to shreds.
  15. Hey, all! Back with another cover, this time from Legends of Equestria! It's probably one of my favorite themes of the Evershade, if not of the whole game, so I knew I had to cover it. (And not to sound like I'm bragging, but this also got featured by LoE's Twitter this morning, which still has me squeeing internally) Link to Soundcloud: Thanks, and I hope you enjoy it!
  16. Hey, all! Back again with another song (that's a few days old, whoops). This one is a gift for a dear friend of mine. He's been going through some rough stuff lately (though he informed me earlier today that's he's feeling better, so yay), so I thought I'd write something to cheer him up. (And he let me know he loves it, too, so double yay.) Therefore, it's a soft and relaxing song. It also, to me, feels kinda like background music, and while it's a little on the repetitive side, I'm proud of it. Here's to hoping you get some enjoyment out of it as well. Thanks for listening!
  17. So after a month of nothing, I've released a new song! This one was written at the beginning of Season 5, and is about Starlight Glimmer. It was technically written before "Just a Fraud", but I had to rework the lyrics a little, so it got delayed. It's here now, though, so please give it a listen if you wish! Any comments and feedback is much appreciated! And the obligatory SoundCloud link, for those who prefer it. Thanks for listening, and enjoy!
  18. Back with a new song! This one is dedicated to the pony who I'm sure is quickly becoming best pony for many of you. I had a bit of fun writing this song, especially coming off the knowledge I gained while writing Canterlot Heights. Here's hoping you'll have as much fun listening to it. Any comments and feedback are much appreciated! And, as usual, an optional SoundCloud link for those who prefer it.
  19. I made another Trixie song, this time based upon a line said in "Magic Duel." This is also the first song I've released that has lyrics, so if you want to check those out, and/or sing along for some odd reason, they are in the video description. Any and all comments are appreciated! Thanks for listening, and enjoy! Also, here's an alternate SoundCloud link for those of you who wish to listen this way instead.
  20. Hey all, I'm back with a new song! This was the result of me attempting to make a house track, as I've never successfully made one before. While I'm not sure if I succeeded or not, I will say that I think the song turned out alright nonetheless. Please, tell me what you think!
  21. The Nintendo Entertainment System or NES was Nintendo's first console outside of Japan and it has a lot of classic games. I actually didn't grow up during the NES I was born in '97 but there are some gems I enjoy playing on it. So I'll give you my top 10 NES games of all time. Here We Go! #10: Kid Icarus At number 10 is the original Kid Icarus. I will put this low on my list because it can be quite frustrating sometimes. But I liked the greek mythological theme to it and the variety in levels and enemies. #9: DuckTales This game is based on the cartoon show DuckTales and I think this game has aged as well as the TV series. DuckTales was one of the few 80's shows I enjoyed and was a great show. And Disney is even going to reboot this series in 2017. The gameplay of DuckTales is solid where you keep bouncing going through levels and collecting treasures along the way. #8: Legend of Zelda Next is the original Legend of Zelda and is actually one of my favorites in the series because of the simplicity. It feels clunky compared to later games but I think it's still fun to play. I find it easy to pick up and play because there is barely any text or tutorials but I would say it has one of the weaker stories in the series. #7: Balloon Fight I liked the concept of Balloon Fight where you fly with balloons and pop the other enemies balloons. I thought that was a neat concept. I found this game to be a simple fun and addicting arcade style game. And it also has an extra mode called Balloon Trip which is fun too. #6: Popeye Here's another game based on a cartoon series, Popeye. This is a port of the Nintendo arcade game and is actually a solid adaptation of the cartoon. You play as Popeye trying to avoid Bluto and you collect hearts, music, or help letters from Olive Oyl and you can even get spinach. Like Balloon Fight this is a simple, fun arcade game. #5: Mr. Gimmick This one is kind of a hidden gem and it was only released in Japan and Europe, and is a rare game these days. Regardless this is a fun yet challenging platformer game where you play as Gimmick, a cute creature who can generate stars. I thought that was a neat concept. It can be challenging because the way the star bounces are based on a physics mechanic that can be frustrating at times. I also like the color and detail in this game. #4: Kirby's Adventure This is one of my favorite Kirby games ever. It's the first Kirby game where you get the copy ability so you can mess with different abilities which is fun to do. It has a wide variety of levels, and enemies. And this game also has some bonus games like a crane game and a gun draw game. A very fun platformer and it was remade for the GBA. #3: Mother/Earthbound Zero Mother is the prequel to Earthbound on the SNES and there's not many differences. The sequel on SNES feels more like a reboot more than a sequel but this is my favorite RPG on the NES. It has a modern setting, has varied worlds, and quirky enemies and dialogue. This game is the weakest in the series mainly because it's harder and more grinding but it's still cool to check out. While the graphics and game mechanics don't hold up well the music is still great. #2: Super Mario Bros. Oh yeah you knew this was coming. The original Super Mario Bros that started it all. A solid platforming game where you play as Mario and try to defeat Bowser and save Princess Peach. It was remade for Super Mario All Stars and Gameboy Color and I would say the Gameboy Color version is the definitive version but the original on the NES started it all. And my #1 favorite NES game is... So that was my Top 10 NES Games of all time. What are yours?
  22. New song! This time, a cover of Metal Core Pony's song, "My Own Way." I had a bit of fun with this one. Please, tell me what you think!
  23. We may not be the "master race", but we all know that Nintendo is pretty awesome. This thread is devoted to the Big N and all of it's glory. If the discussion is about Nintendo, debates about which game series is best, timelines (looking at you Zelda), ideas for reboots, new dlcs, etc. it is welcome here. Is it just me or does Nintendo have a lot of series? Like seriously some of these need to come back instead of Mario, Zelda, and Pokemon...
