WTF/FTW – For Armada, it was Friday

I… I have no words. Just watch this, seriously: W-T-F/F-T-W…

Games & Gear of 2012 Reloaded – South Park: The Game (12/31/12)

 

South Park is one of those shows that’s always is on the edge of genius and/or insanity; their humor is often extreme and nothing’s off topic. Whatever they choose to talk about however (whether you agree with it or not) it’s so well done you can’t help but respect Trey Parke, Matt Stone, and all the people involved with the show for there storytelling excellence. Sadly the same can’t be said about their video games. Sure they filled a niche and kept cool with the kids, but in no way were they the same quality of style as the show – until now. The famed creators of the show are writing the entire script for the brand’s latest game called ‘South Park: The Game’ and being brought to life by Obsidian Entertainment. Were I to say it’s just a RPG would be gross understatement on how epic this game will be. You play as a customizable silent protagonist who moved into town just in time for some LARPing, south park style. From there your adventure into the world’s most craziest small town will begin; and how it will end, I guarantee, no one will ever see coming. It’s a good thing this is the last game in the new year because something tells me we’ll need all the time we can get with this one.

 

 

 

Games & Gear of 2012 Reloaded – Kid Icarus: Uprising (3/23/12)

 

Hey, hey, hey people, just when I typed saying the list was done, they pull me back in. Thanks to release dates, the Game & Gear list of 2012 is back on and reloaded. Sadly its only for a few games, at least it’s a step in the right direction, and with that Kid Icarus: Uprising. Now the closest thing I’ve played of anything dealing with the Kid Icarus series is SSB:B. However the constant trailers I’ve seen on this game has got me excited to be newest member of the Kid coalition. Utilizing the full 3D technology of the Nintendo 3DS is only the beginning for this game. Uprising will feature both intense flight combat and 3rd person shooting elements, different interchangeable weapons, and even wireless multiplayer with created characters. Add to the mix an engaging storyline equal to any home console game and, for pre order gamers, the original Kid Icarus game and you got yourself a deal and a half. This game was the reason so many people wanted the 3DS in the first place; now that it’s only a few months a way it would be foolish to miss out on it now.

 

 

 

 

WTF/FTW – Fighting game trailers

Wow people, just wow. 2012 is turning into the year of WTF because not only do I have one awesomely strange trailer to show, but two. The first one is a reveal of Street Fighter X (cross) Tekken exclusive PlayStation characters like Cole from inFamious and the Japanese Sony mascots Toro and Kuro. The also revealed Mega Man and Pac-man as characters as well, giving Pac-man a Mokujin bot to control and Mega Man… Well just watch, all your say is WTF/FTW.

 

Now this next trailer (or whatever) is actual footage of a fan game called Dong Dong Never Die from 2009. Using sound effects from other fighting game and taking over 10,000 still shot photos; DDND is a wacky, nonsensical, freeware game that put lot of other fan base mugen fighters to shame. The game characters’ range from smoking gangsters (I assume) to Mario himself and they throw down with fighting styles so odd ball you can’t help but be impressed with the people who made this game even more. Just watch the video, a WTF/FTW moment if I ever saw one.

What Santa brought me (Mini Game Review) – Star Wars: The Old Republic

 

We have come to the end my friends, the last gift I’ll feature here (somewhat). Oh sure I got plenty more things from Santa and various others, but they’re decidedly less cool than what I’ve shown already. Does anyone really want me to review socks my mom gave me? No, I didn’t think so. So on that note – Star Wars: The Old Republic. Yeah, since I already reviewed it, there’s no reason to have a Mini Game Review; that would be completely pointless.  So click on the link here (in case you missed the review the first time) to see what I thought of the game (hint: It’s good). So thanks again for reading these following segments, hopefully these synopsizes not only entertained but made you want to buy something cool and awesome – or at least put them in your Christmas list for this year.
