Now Playing Tracks

Another one of the all-time classics. Blaster Master, possibly Sunsoft’s greatest triumph. Eight diverse stages, each with their own theme and soundtrack. Amazingly, though the music is spectacular for this game, it’s actually overshadowed by the graphics and world exploration. This piece has always been my favorite, not only because the stage it’s attached to is one of the most impressive, but because it conveys the electromechanical mood of its parent stage so well without resorting to obvious musical tropes like the “zzt” of electrical currents. The most you get is a slightly metallicized voice through the square wave overlays. The overall melody isn’t as complex as you might expect a great piece of game music to be, but it’s proof positive that with the right construction, simplicity can win the day.

(Note: The art for this piece comes from the Japanese version of the game, Cho Wakusei Senki Metafight, since all art in the American version was just screenshots from the game.)

First of all, thank you very much ! Merci beaucoup ^u^

Never excepted so much likes on the legend of Zelda : Feather Time, so I tried to see if it works with some games …. now I think I can see birds and pigeons on everything ! Imagine these epic games only with pigeons and turtle doves !

I’ll call this idea: Story-bird ! 

If you could choose only one game on the list, which one would you choose ? :p

THE WAR AGAINST GIYGAS!

Someone popular must have reblogged this since it appears to be making the rounds again without my source, as usual. Oh well.

Sponge Bob Busted !
so i’m on the F train the other day and this fkn guy bumps into me
and tries to run the broken watch scam on me. you know what i mean…
he shows me some bullshitty watch on his wrist and he’s like…
"yo. you broke my fuckin’ watch! you owe me 500 dollars."
he started getting real close and all in my personal space.
before i could react to what he was saying i was like
"oh shit! i know this dude. wait.. wait.. uuhhh…"
then the train kinda stopped quick and he fell back against the doors and i was like
"fuck you Sponge Bob". he kinda shrugged it off and walked to the next car.
and i’m all , man that was odd. nobody else seemed to notice. anyways,
when i got off at my stop (47th+6th) 
i saw some kind of scuffle and then a crowd grew.
i guess Sponge Bob tried to steal somebody’s blackberry or something
and got busted by an undercover cop. i waited at the top of the stairs for him cause i thought you guys would like the picture of the Sponge Bob perp walk.
you’re welcome.

It’s mail time once again, as 64 Trump Collection: Alice no Waku Waku Trump World just arrived yesterday. Developed by Bottom Up, a company perhaps best known on the system for their 64 Oozumou duology of sumo games, this is simply a collection of card game favorites featuring Alice in Wonderland-related trappings. Let’s get this out of the way quickly: yes, Alice no Waku Waku’s graphical stylings are similar to what you’ll find in Paper Mario. It features paper-thin characters in a book-based 3D environment, after all, and it’s awfully cute. However, it actually predates Paper Mario by a whole 2 years, so please go ahead and put the mockery-based pitchforks back in the closet. It’s certainly not as impressive as Paper Mario, but it’s definitely more than impressive for a small Japanese 3rd-party N64 game dev in 1998.Outside of its titular Alice aesthetics, it delivers on its basic premise: card-based games on a cart-based game pak. Unlike some similar titles, it’s a mix of both single-player and multi-player card games- and there’s also a story mode that focuses heavily on the latter. Among the 20 or so games, it’s mostly stuff you’ve heard of, like Doubt, Solitaire, and Speed; though there seems to be a few Japanese card games thrown in that you’re likely as familiar with as I am.Is Alice no Waku Waku worth your time? In the age of the internet and smartphones, probably not- at least, if you’re just looking to play some of your favorite card games. It may very much be worth your time if you view it as a unique and intriguing novelty, though, especially to see its Japanese take on the Lewis Carroll classic. Heck, it’s honestly interesting enough just to see the proto-Paper Mario style in action, if you’re into that kind of thing. Consider giving it 15 minutes or so sometime when you’re bored, and don’t be surprised if those minutes turn out to be significantly more entertaining than expected.
