2014: The Year Ahead (Games!)

Posted by Lucina , in Video Games Jan 09 2014 · 305 views

Followup post activate! Here are the ten video games that I am most looking forward to in 2014. I expect I shall probably end up playing roughly three of them.
Top 10 Anticipated Games
1. Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U (3DS/WiiU) - If you came into this thinking I was going to pick some other stupid game that doesn't matter as my most anticipated game of 2014, you were sorely mistaken. I mean, I have an ENTIRE SERIES OF ENTRIES dedicated to this thing. I'm pretty hyped yo.
2. Titanfall (Win/360/XBO) - An online FPS multiplayer - with GIANT FREAKING MECHS dropped right in the center. Color me extremely excited for this game. 
3. Project CARS (Win/Steam/WiiU/XBO/PS4) - This super ambitious title seems to be coming to every single platform on the planet, so hopefully the quality doesn't suffer as a result. The game looks beautiful and sounds really fun (and this is coming from someone who hasn't ever played Forza or Gran Turismo or any other car-centric games very heavily). 
4. Professor Layton vs. Pheonix Wright: Ace Attorney (3DS) - I've been waiting on this game since 2011. Have I played either series much? No, because I'm not interested in drowning myself in the multitude of games at this point in time. But this is another game that I would have bought the 3DS for.
5. Tadpole Treble (Win/Mac/WiiU) - A game funded via Kickstarter; it's from the creator of the comic Brawl in the Family, Matthew Taranto, and features his usual art style, with a heavy basis in rhythm and music. It's not as large as the other titles on this list, but I'm probably more likely to play this (and play it often) than the other games.
6. Destiny (360/XBO/PS3/PS4) - Is there anybody that isn't interested in this game? This would rank higher, except that I'm probably never going to play it unless my brother picks it up for his 360, so I've been trying to keep my hype to a minimum. As you can see, it is clearly working spectacularly.
7. Bravely Default (3DS) - I don't generally play JRPGs, but the media's obsession with this title has managed to pique my interests. I tried out the demo briefly, though I did not have time to fully introduce myself to the play style. I'm also not happy about it being censored, more to the point of stuff being censored here when it's not elsewhere (why do games have to be censored anywhere I mean really governments pssh).
8. Mario Kart 8 (WiiU) - The Mario Kart franchise's chance to redeem itself to me after the appalling Mario Kart 7. I'm not convinced they can do it, since I dislike how they threw in the gliders and underwater driving as gimmicks, the customization system was sub-par, and now they're adding anti-gravity (and I've heard that the bikes are treated as karts this time too, ugh). But I'll give it a chance, just the same. It's also been a series best on home consoles (minus Mario Kart DS, my favorite in the franchise).
9. Pillars of Eternity (PC) - All computer gamers will have access to this game, another one funded by Kickstarter. I don't know too much about it, but what I do like interests me a great deal.
10. The Elder Scrolls Online (Win/Mac/XBO/PS4) - I doubt I'll play this, since I'd rather not experience the life-sucking abyss that is an MMORPG, but still... I feel the urge to at least give it a shot. 
And that's about it; as far as video games go, I'm not quite as obsessive over new titles as I am with movies (mostly because I could see like, 8 movies for the price of some video games). So woohoo


3DS Friend Codes

Posted by Lucina , in Video Games Dec 30 2013 · 288 views

Just realized that I've owned my 3DS for like a month and never actually bothered to find out my friend code but now I know it so wooooooooooooohoo this is stupid
Anyway here it is: 1736-1497-1415
So like share yours below or something I guess, the only thing I might have in common with you right now is Pokemon and maybe later Animal Crossing


Christmas Haul 2013

Posted by Lucina , in Life, Video Games Dec 25 2013 · 349 views

Not too bad; I'm not gonna bother listing everything here, but some interesting items I got:
-a new wallet (finally more card spaces =D)
-Red vs. Blue: Season 11 
-RWBY Volume 1 
-Two books I forget the names of lawl
And for us four brothers, we got really lucky on the annual "multiplayer video game for Christmas" front:
-Super Mario 3D World
-New Super Luigi U
The only other multiplayer game worth anything for the Wii U right now that we don't own is Rayman Legends, so that's certainly something. 


I just got Just Cause 2

Or to be more specific the Just Cause Collection
wooo more games I can't play


A Link Between Worlds

Posted by Lucina , in Video Games Dec 15 2013 · 198 views

I beat the game the other night - loved every second of it (minus that stupid treasure center where you need to pegasus boots to beat it.... ugh, I hate corners).
This was, without a doubt, the Zelda game that I have wanted since 2010, and the best Zelda game since Twilight Princess was released. Every single thing I have wanted was there, and then some. While Yuga's presence in the second half of the game was unfortunately limited, every boss battle against him was lots of fun.
I have nothing but praise for this game, except the one pet peeve that irks me every time it occurs: there is no way to save your game after the final boss. I don't know why games still do this in the year 2013, but it is an unfortunate reality.
That said... the game was still so good that I think I'll try out Hero Mode over the upcoming break, and undoubtedly fail at it.


Nintendo 3DS

Posted by Lucina , in Video Games Dec 03 2013 · 184 views

So... now that I have a 3DS, it is time to start listening for game recommendations. So I will list the games that matter that are currently in my household and as such do not need to be purchased:
-Kid Icarus: Uprising
-Mario Kart 7(even though it sucks)
-Super Mario 3D Land (even though it also sucks)
-Ocarina of Time 3D (this sucks too)
-A Link Between Worlds
-Pokemon X & Y
-Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
-Mario & Luigi: Dream Team
-Star Fox 64 3D
-maybe something else I'm forgetting who knows
Games I'm already planning on getting at some point:
-Fire Emblem: Awakening
-Animal Crossing: New Leaf
So... what other 3DS games should I look into?

That is one ugly picture, but the machine is a beaut. Much deserving of its place with me, considering that it will be taking the place of my 7 year old DS Lite that recently died (perfect timing, DS Lite... you were there for me until the end ;_;
Also totally had this conversation with Blade while trying to figure out how Club Nintendo works with downloaded games:

4:11 PM - Tex: sooo
4:11 PM - Tex: My product registration survey still doesn't work, but
4:11 PM - Tex: It expires November 22 2018
4:11 PM - Tex: That's nice
4:11 PM - BZP Blade: Wow. =P
4:11 PM - Tex: I'll just wait FIVE YEARS to fill it out xD
4:11 PM - BZP Blade: xD
4:12 PM - Tex: aaaah there we go it worked
4:12 PM - Tex: Now it expires January 1st 2014 though
4:12 PM - Tex: Laaaaame
4:12 PM - BZP Blade: xD

I ordered it online today, so it should arrive sometime next week! :D After two and a half men years I will own a 3DS, specifically a 3DS XL, since my hands are too big for the regular sized one if I wish to play for extended periods of time. 
Plus, I'll get the Zelda game I've wanted for years - seriously. Pretty much when the 3DS was first announced I thought "it would be totally cool if they remade the original Zelda for the 3DS with upgraded graphics and new features, with the 'pick a dungeon' setup". While ALBW isn't a remake of the original game, in my opinion, it's even better - because Nintendo has also fixed my issue with items in the past (virtually every) installments. ALBW is the Zelda game I have probably been waiting for my entire life.
And of course I've still got Pokemon X to play; I put it down for awhile since it's a little frustrating to rely on someone else's gaming machine to play. However, with this I will be able to exchange friend codes and play to my heart's content!


Pokemon X

Posted by Lucina , in Video Games Nov 26 2013 · 273 views

I'm kind of wishing I'd chosen the female avatar instead of the male one... there are so many more customization options available. 
I haven't touched the game much in recent weeks, mainly because I'd rather play it on my own 3DS, which has yet to exist. Hopefully there's still a Zelda 3DS XL available once I'm ready.
In other news, I have discovered that my old DS Lite is completely non-functional. So... I need the 3DS even more now if I want to enjoy the few DS games I have again. :P

Luigi wins by a vote of 8-4, emerging as our second "Best Character Ever"!! He earned it - the Year of Luigi really has paid off in full. 
Feel free to suggest themes for the future - who knows what three will be? (Although I must admit, there is one idea I'm leaning towards....)
Did Luigi deserve to win over Hades? Would Luigi have defeated any challenger he came across? Who knows - we'll see if he can advance to the finals again in the future.
