Extraction Point


Halo: Reach

It is the basis of my COT Library Summer Olympics entry. It's going very well.


New Avatar And Signature

Doubtless those of you bothering to check this blog have already seen them both, but I thought I'd post it here anyway, because I think both are awesome.

No, I am not actually posting them here.

Ok I will.

Here is banner for you all >> Just cropped and added a few effects. Think it still looks cool, though. Definitely worth losing all space for text.

Here is the avatar >> Pretty much can be considered an upgraded version of my old avatar.


Thank You And Pyromania!

First off, thanks to Hahli Husky for the proto point- people usually put proto points they've gotten in side bars or whatever, but I'm too lazy to do that. So here's an entry instead.

And then the second part is- Team Fortress 2 Pyromania update. New map and game mode is pretty sweet; hopefully we get one or two new maps for it in the coming months and it becomes as integrated as the likes of Payload. And I'm very glad to know that the rumours of that monkey being the Pyro are now squashed.

Actually this is my entry on RvB Episode 4 that I never actually did. =P

So I'm loving the machinima bits- they are far superior to the ones from Season 9 and, for whatever reason, I'm happy they're using Halo 3 again. Reach was just a little too different to be used, I think.

The CGI section was brilliant as always, and continues to blow me away at how far they've progressed in terms of visual quality since Season 9. Also, it was nice to see another big ship.

Now to wait for Episode 5 tomorrow!

Also... Meet the Pyro.


Top 10 - The Gamecube

Posted by Voltex , in Video Games Jun 22 2012 · 90 views

Aw yeah, let's do this list! Keep in mind once more, these are simply the top ten games on the system I want to play on the Wii U virtual console, as I haven't played any of them before.

Except one.

  • Viewtiful Joe (2003)
  • Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (2004) - cheating, but I'll take this game anyway I can.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures (2004)
  • Beyond Good & Evil (2003)
  • Peter Jackson's Kind Kong (2005)
  • The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (2002)
  • Donkey Kong Jungle Beat (2004)
  • Fire Emblem: Parth of Radiance (2005)
  • Prince of Persia: Sands of Time (2003)
  • Mario Party 5 (2003)
  • Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (Wait...)
  • Luigi's Mansion
  • Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness
  • Pikmin
  • Pikmin 2
  • Super Mario Sunshine
  • Mario Party 7
  • Mario Kart: Double-Dash!!
  • Metroid Prime


Top 10 - Gameboy Advance

Posted by Voltex , in Video Games Jun 20 2012 · 108 views

And today I bring you the Gameboy Advance list.

  • Gunstar Super Heroes (2005)
  • Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga (2003)
  • Advance Wars (2001)
  • Wario Land 4 (2001)
  • The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap (2005)
  • Metroid: Zero Mission (2004)
  • Mega Man & Bass (2003)
  • Drill Dozer (2006)
  • Fire Emblem (2003)
  • Astro Boy: Omega Factor (2004)
  • Pokemon Emerald (GBA, 2005)

Probably my least-looked forward to list, to be honest. :P GBA is just... I dunno. Plenty of great games for it, sure, but most of these are probably the ones I'd look forward to playing least out of all the games I'm listing. Of note, I almost put the Donkey Kong Country port on here, and the same with the Super Mario World port, before deciding that Astro Boy would be more worth the time.


Top 10 - Nintendo 64

Posted by Voltex , in Video Games Jun 19 2012 · 145 views

Next to the Gamecube list, this is probably the list I've looked forward to posting most.

  • Super Smash Bros. (1999)
  • Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber (1999)
  • Donkey Kong 64 (1999)
  • Rayman 2: The Great Escape (1999)
  • Mario Kart 64 (1996)
  • Conker's Bad Fur Day (2001)
  • Blast Corps (1997)
  • The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (2000)
  • Star Fox 64 (1997)
  • Goldeneye 007 (1997)
  • Paper Mario (2001, Wii VC)
  • Super Mario 64 (1996, Wii VC)
  • Yoshi's Story (1997) - not that this would've EVER made the list anyway xD
  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (1998, GCN, 3DS)


Top 10 - Super Nintendo

Posted by Voltex , in Video Games Jun 18 2012 · 190 views

Part 3 comes a little later; my excuses are homework, volunteering, and the awesome new episode of RvB which I will be detailing tomorrow.

  • Donkey Kong Country (1994)
  • Super Mario World (1991)
  • Mega Man X (1994)
  • Earthbound (1995)
  • Earthworm Jim (1994)
  • Star Fox (1993)
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (1992)
  • Secret of Mana (1993)
  • Contra III: The Alien Wars (1992)
  • Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy Kong's Quest (1995)
  • Axelay - Owned on Wii VC
  • Chrono Trigger - Owned on Wii VC
Of note, this is the first list to mention two titles from the same series (that series being Donkey Kong Country). In addition, I do own several games on this list, but unfortunately my SNES has suffered the same difficulty fate as my NES, making it a pain to play them.

N64 tomorrow.


Top 10 - Gameboy & Gameboy Color

Posted by Voltex , in Video Games Jun 17 2012 · 104 views

And here we have Part 2 - Gameboy & Gameboy Color games. I haven't owned any of these ever except for Tetris DX, Oracle of Seasons and Super Mario Bros. Deluxe, so those are absent and this is all stuff that makes me wish I'd been born in the '80s.

  • Shantae (GBC, 2002)
  • The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX (GBC, 1998)
  • Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins (GB, 1992)
  • Donkey Kong Land (GB, 1995)
  • Kirby's Dreamland 2 (GB, 1995)
  • Wario Land 3 (GBC, 2000)
  • Pokemon Red/Blue (GB, 1998)
  • Pokemon Yellow (GBC, 1999)
  • The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages (2001)
  • Metal Gear Solid (GBC, 2000)
So I lied... the SNES will be coming tomorrow though. These ten would obviously be on the 3DS VC if I were to get them. It took awhile for me to decide which game I would put as number ten; the other option was Operation C. However, Metal Gear won out after I remembered having fun with the little bit of Snake Eater 3D that I've played.


Red Vs. Blue Episode 3

Freakin' awesome, as has been the usual with this season. B-)

However, should I be able to watch the episodes at 8pm eastern if I'm not a sponsor?
