Best Ever 3: VOTING ROUND 1!

Posted by Voltex , in Best Ever, Video Games Sep 30 2014 · 118 views

Posted Image

And so it begins! After smashing their way through the preliminary voting, characters such as Professor Layton, Robin, Fawful, Porky Minch, and Gordon Freeman all take part in Round 1, alongside many others! None of the matchups this round look too special; none of them seem, at first glance, to contain a character that stands a chance of utterly slamming their opponent (aside from perhaps Luigi, Samus, and GLaDOS).

As usual, I have both a picture bracket AND a text bracket for you all - click the picture to see an even larger version!

The text bracket:

HEROES
#1 Luigi (Super Mario) vs #16 Zero (Mega Man)

#2 Samus Aran (Metroid) vs #15 John Marston (Red Dead Redemption)

#3 Pit (Kid Icarus) vs #14 Bartz Klauser (Final Fantasy)

#4 Link (The Legend of Zelda) vs #13 Richard Conway (Gunpoint)

#5 Mega Man (Mega Man) vs #12 Captain Falcon (F-Zero)

#6 Star Killer (Star Wars) vs #11 Gordon Freeman (Half-Life)

#7 Agnes Oblige (Bravely Default) vs #10 Robin (Fire Emblem)

#8 Lucas (Mother/Earthbound) vs #9 Professor Layton (Professor Layton)


VILLAINS
#1 Hades (Kid Icarus) vs #16 Cyrus (Pokemon)

#2 GLaDOS (Portal) vs #15 Sephiroth (Final Fantasy)

#3 Ganondorf (The Legend of Zelda) vs #14 Comstock (Bioshock)

#4 Ridley (Metroid) vs #13 Grima (Fire Emblem)

#5 Black Shadow (F-Zero) vs #12 Majora (The Legend of Zelda)

#6 Fawful (Super Mario) vs #11 The Gentleman (Monaco)

#7 Porky Minch (Mother/Earthbound) vs #10 Darth Malak (Star Wars)

#8 Master Hand (Super Smash Bros.) vs #9 Ghetsis (Pokemon)

As always, you can vote for one character in each matchup! Voting for this round will be open for two days. Let's get everybody to vote!
My votes are:

Heroes
#1 Luigi
#2 Samus Aran
#3 Pit
#13 Richard Conway
#5 Mega Man
#11 Gordon Freeman
#7 Agnes Oblige
#9 Professor Layton

Villains
#1 Hades

The Legend of Legacy

Posted by Voltex , in Video Games Sep 28 2014 · 48 views

Juuuuust great. Now there's ANOTHER JRPG I'm looking forward to on the 3DS. It looks tons of fun, releases in Japan in January. I really hope that it's going to get localized for NA; seven playable protagonists and a non-linear story sounds very fun, and the art style is gorgeous. I love the pop-up environments.

My list of must-have 3DS games is slowly expanding (I am interested in many titles that are released, but I usually let my brothers buy them instead). I have so far limited myself to the games that I absolutely need to have for my collection, and while one game - Pokemon X - did still disappoint me, it has saved me money and made my experience with the 3DS better. The only other games I own so far are Bravely Default and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. And now with Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS only a few days away and me awaiting a NA release announcement for both Bravely Second and The Legend of Legacy, I AM starting to notice a bit of a trend.

And somehow, of course, I need to fit in Fire Emblem: Awakening.

THE BEST EVER! (Nominate Here!)

Posted by Voltex , in Best Ever, Video Games Sep 27 2014 · 414 views

So back in January, I realize that I 100% dropped the ball on this one. But now that it's been about a year since the first one, I figured that we would try this again.

The Best Ever 3: Good vs. Evil is officially live!

Sixteen of the greatest heroes in video games, as well as sixteen of the greatest villains, shall go head-to-head with each other, vying for the "Best Ever" crown! As the winner and runner-up of Best Ever 2 respectively, Luigi and Hades are guaranteed the #1 spot in each category!

In the comments below, you may nominate two heroes and two villains. If someone else has already nominated a character that you wish to nominate, you can state that you are adding another nomination; this will help that character's chances with proceeding past the preliminary vote (and indeed, if any receive enough nominations, they may be able to skip the preliminary vote entirely)! So our two categories currently stand as follows:

Heroes
#1 Luigi (Super Mario)

Villains
#2 Hades (Kid Icarus)



I will nominate Mega Man (Mega Man) and Agnes Oblige (Bravely Default) for the Heroes.
I will nominate Fawful (Super Mario) and GLaDOS (Portal) for the Villains.

You may begin nominating down below!!

Skylanders: Trap Team

Posted by Voltex , in Video Games Apr 23 2014 · 118 views

And this is the part of the show where Voltex is even happier that he never bought into this whole "use toys to play video games" business.
 
But he also realizes with sadness that if they do this with Pokemon or Nintendo characters in general, he will probably become broke.

Game suggestions?

Posted by Voltex , in Video Games Apr 06 2014 · 139 views

Whilst playing Bravely Default, I was reminded of how much I enjoyed Dragon Quest IX a few years ago, as well as what little of the SNES version of Chrono Trigger I played before our Wii was moved and I could no longer play it. So I was wondering if you all might be able to offer me some suggestions on the best RPG games for the DS and 3DS that I'm most likely to enjoy, taking the above two games into account.
 
I do plan on somehow acquiring the DS version of Chrono Trigger eventually, but otherwise I am uncertain as to where I should be headed for RPGs. :P
