10 Characters I Want In Smash Bros. 4 (And 5 I Don't)

Super Smash Bros. 4 was announced awhile ago, and quite a few new  characters have already been announced, leading to about 100,000,000 predictions., especially with the announcement of fan favorite Mega Man. I've decided to jump on the band wagon, but add a few characters I really don't want in the game. So let's start. This isn't going in any order, just the characters I particularly want.

Ratchet & Clank: A Long Review Part 2

Welcome to part 2 of my Ratchet & Clank review/playthrough. I don't know what exactly to put here, other than that we're going to Kerwan and Aridia. I'll just link to my inspiration for this new shift, this guy's analysis on Wario Land 4. It's very interesting. But anyway, let's get started.

One of the most important characters in the franchise. Not joking.

Ratchet & Clank: A Long Review Part 1

Sorry for the absence, I've been doing a lot of things (I ACTUALLY HAVEN'T I'M JUST LAZY), so I haven't had much time for the writing. However, I'm starting up something new with my reviews, I'm going to go in depth, with multi part reviews and going over every level. I'm going to start with the classic PS2 game, Ratchet and Clank. Except I'm doing the PS3 rerelease, so it's not really the original. I am planning on doing the entire series, or at least the ones I own, so this is a pretty big project. Anywho, let's get this madness started, shall we?

The combination of cat thing and robot has never been so fun.

Crash Tag Team Racing Review

In part two of Crash-A-Palooza we will be looking at the first ever Crash game made by Radical Entertainment. This game was a bold attempt to mix Platforming and Racing into a single game, did it work out? WELL I'M GONNA SHOW YA

Story-6/10- Crash, Coco, Crunch, Cortex, N. Gin, and Nina are in the middle of an intense car chase but wind up crashing in the middle of a racing based amusement park run by the German cyborg Von Clutch. It turns out that Von Clutch's amusement park is dying due to the Power Gems that run the place having been stolen. On top of that, Von Clutch's very own Black Power Gem, which powers his cyborg body, has gone missing. Von Clutch hires Crash and the gang to get them back and save his park.

Crash of the Titans Review

Poor Crash Bandicoot. Once a beloved Playstation icon, he slowly became just another platformer in a sea of them. This game tried to make Crash and his friends "hip" and "cool" to a modern audience. It's too bad that all the people who were interested in this game were Crash fans who wanted a classic Crash game. This game changed everything from the series and just made it... mediocre, making Crash fall further into obscurity.

Story-5/10- The story is ridiculously basic. Cortex, Crash's big headed arch-nemesis, kidnaps Crash's sister, Coco, freezes Crash's kinda-sorta brother, Crunch, in a block of ice. After the first world, Cortex gets replaced by his daught... er, niece, Nina. Crash then has to travel to different worlds to find Coco. That's basically it. Crash has to go to different worlds and try to find Coco. He goes to the lava level and beats Tiny Tiger, who tells him to go to N. Gin's base, N. Gin then tells Crash that Uka Uka might have Coco, so he goes there and then Uka Uka then tells Crash where Nina is and then he goes to her base and rescues Coco. It's basically Super Mario Brothers with bandicoots.

A Look at the Bizarre Denizens of Ooo Part 4

Hey what this has nothing to do with Bionicle, what gives? Not much, I just couldn't find any good pictures of Bionicle figures. My Xbox red ring'd so the review I was writing is cancelled, so I decided to crank out another Adventure Time article at the last minute. HOORAY FOR LAZYNESS

Science Cat shows up around 4:00 PM everyday at Finn and Jake's tree house. He gets his head chopped off at 5:00 PM, which he regrows the next day, presumably with science. He is friends with Shark.

Bionicle Heroes Review

I've been with Bionicle from the beginning to the end. I've been into it since 2001 to 2010 and collected a vast amount of the sets released for it. 2006 is where I REALLY got into the series. 2006 was, in my opinion, the top of the Bionicle series. During that year they released a video game based on the 2006 storyline. I am here to talk about it.

Story-4/10- The story is very basic. These bad dudes named the Piraka have taken over an island and have a thing you want. You, being the almighty god chosen Toa, have beat them and get the thing back. There's also something about the Piraka turning the animals of the island into monsters, but that's just an excuse to bring in old bad guys from previous years.

However, the game has a myriad of continuity problems, such as dead characters being alive, good characters being evil, and thing that really shouldn't be on the island being there. However, this is null and void, as it makes up for these errors in the extra content, which I will get to in a minute.

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions Review

Spider-Man is really the only Marvel character I care and know a lot about. He's just one of the more likable Marvel characters. He also has the second best rogues gallery , right next to Batman. But enough about me liking Spidey, it's reviewing time!

Story-7/10- The game starts with Amazing Spidey stopping Mysterio (AKA The best Spider-Man villain) from robbing a museum. In the process, Spidey breaks an ancient stone tablet that keeps the dimensions in balance or something. Madame Web, Spidey's mentor or something I guess, tells him he done screwed up and that he needs to get the pieces back. Madame Web also gains access to the alternate versions of Spidey from alternate dimensions to help gather the pieces.

Disney Universe Review

Disney is cool. There are a lot of good Disney films, like Nightmare Before Christmas, and The Muppets. Those are also the only Disney movies I own on Blu-Ray, so they're really the only ones I can name. I'm going to do some reviewing here I go.

Story-4/10- Disney Universe takes place in a weird virtual reality thing called the Disney Universe. Pretty creative, I know. But this place recreates famous Disney movies and sequences, and it's run by a blue cube named VIC, short for Virtual Information Cube. There's also robots that work there, but they're friendly. Oh wait no they aren't, cause this dude named HEX takes over the program and makes everything evil and red. That's basically it. You have to go through levels and beat up bad guys, and then when you beat the last level it ends. The ending is pretty amazing though

Toy Story 3: The Video Game Review

Movie licensed games are almost never good, with some of the most infamous games made being based off movies, such as E.T and Bebe's Kids. However, once in a blue moon, a good one comes out, having original concepts and creativity. Toy Story 3: The Video Game is one of those games. Heck, it was good enough to inspire that Disney Infinity game that's coming out.

Story-5/10- Being based on a pre-existing plot, the game tries to adapt it into an interactive perspective. However, this is where it falters, as it really doesn't follow the plot of the film all that well, sometimes for good, sometimes for bad. The plot follows Woody, Buzz, Jessie, Rex, Hamm, and Slinky Dog as they make they're way to SunnySide Daycare and meet Lotso Huggin Bear. Woody wants to go home because he has to go to college with his owner, but is sidetracked from that by having to save his friends from SunnySide because the place turns out to be evil.

A Look At The Bizarre Denizens Of Ooo PART 3

Today we wander into a scary dark forest, into Mt. Cragdor, and do some Business.

 The Wall of Flesh is something that really got me into the series, mainly because it's weird, unexplainable, and a really cool idea. It's not really a wall though, more like an amorphous blob

Sonic and Allstars Racing Transformed Review

Whoa! I just remembered I have a blog that I haven't updated in a month! Guess I have to do a post then!

So, racing games have always been samey, with the closest thing to "Innovation" is that we have hang gliders coming out of our cars. Luckily, the fine people at Sega have come to do something about this endless barrage of Mario Karts and Gran Turismos. SaART is probably one of the best mascot racing games since the other Sega racing game.

Story-N/A- Like most racing games, SaART doesn't have a story at all. It's simply "Sega characters in cars and boats and planes, what more do you want?" So I guess we can move on quickly then.
