Game Hunting: Stop Sonic Wielding a Katana

This time around I’ve managed to find games from two different platforms, and both are games I’ve been looking for a long time, which means that I experienced great gaming joy that day.

Samurai Warriors: Katana

This is a spin-off game in the Dynasty Warriors series, and contains elements of a semi-on-rail shooter and one where you use the Wiimote to slice and dice your foes. The controls work well and it’s not difficult to learn how to play it. Bought dirt cheap at Game, of all places, for just the right price and complete with manual and a disc in excellent condition.

sonic heroesSonic Heroes:

I got this half price brand new in a store that was getting rid of their video games stock to focus on movies mainly. I’ve wanted this game for a while and as it’s brand new there’s nothing to complain about. While remembering hearing good things about the game I will have to play the game myself to see what I think of it.

 

 

Ghostbusters Easter Egg

Well, it’s not exactly an Easter Egg, and not a cameo either, but you’ll find Super Fungus Dudes, a clear reference to Super Mario Bros., on the walls of some of the buildings you’re clearing in Ghostbusters the Video Game. I’ve got the Wii version, which is a blast to play, and I can’t see how it’d control better on a standard controller.

Gizmo’s Imprisonment

These are actual screenshots taken from my United CRT TV, they look bleak and washed out, but that’s porbably becasue the TV is fat and old.

I was playing Gremlins 2: The New Batch for the NES using my NES Max controller (which is a Godsend as Gizmo’s projectile attacks are way too slow using the normal Fire Button) and I had a good time, it’s a balanced adventure game with a view from the top. You control the cute and cuddly Gizmo in his quest… for VENGEANCE.

Here you see some screens, just like in the movie, the spark that sets off the whole quest for their blood. I mean, Gizmo even shoots a burning arrow at Spider-Spike (who gave me nightmares the first time I watched that movie by the way).

1. Gizmo is giving birth after being inseminated by water (just plain mineral and microbe enhanced H20) and man does it hurt.

2. He feels remorseful as he already knows his offspring will turn out being worse than trash, but tries not to show them so that they won’t attack him.

3. The trash appears, but the Garbage Man is on strike and can’t take it out.

4. The cute but mentally insane Mogwai, that’s mistaken for being Gizmo in this movie, laughs a bit to foreshadow whats to follow.

5. I don’t have the screen, but they literally throw Gizmo into an air vent and there he is, imprisoned by wannabe vigilantes.

I think this little story (the one who can accurately state the source of this will get an E-Cookie) will fit his story very well from now on:

“Two little mice fell in a bucket of cream. The first mouse quickly gave up and drowned. The second mouse, wouldn’t quit. He struggled so hard that eventually he churned that cream into butter and crawled out. Gentlemen, as of this moment, I am that second mouse.”

“And now, I’ve got a taste for REVENGE.”

Game Hunting: The Simpsons Theft Auto Max

This time I got my hands on something really retro, as well as two games where one in the franchise has borrowed a lot from the other. Let’s take a look at them!
gta

GTA: Liberty City Stories

Vice Vity is my favorite GTA game, and if I recall correctly this was an add-on for that game. My main activities include stealing cars, driving cars, crashing cars and then fleeing from the cops. I can’t recall ever having gone through any of the missions, in the 3D games, like ever. Got this brand new 50% off on a sale, and I hit it immediately.


simpsons game

The Simpsons Game

This is also a game I’ve wanted for a long time, but ultimately forgotten about. I found it at Game for dirt cheap and bought in almost immediately. While they’d made The Simpsons Hit n’ Run, which borrows heavily from the GTA franchise, they decided to finally make a good Simpsons game. This one recieved a lot of praise and plays as a big video game parody, which is awesome.

 

nes max

NES MAX

The NES MAX is a great controller all in all, the only con is that it’s so small for my manly man hands. It feels good though, and I got it at Game for a great price complete in box. The box has a few scuffs and one of the flaps is off a third of it’s length, but that’ll look great with some tape at the inside. I’m really content with this purchase all in all. And I got the box for it as well!
