Bayonetta – Remix’s that dont mix

April 28, 2010

Bayonetta is one of those games that are good but cant really explain why its good. Anyone that has played Dynasty Warriors: Gundam will know what I mean.

I am not bad mouthing the game or what I am about to write, and from what I heard from thebrowngamer, its a top game. In the later stage of Bayonetta theres a very cool bike part mode where you ride the bike literally everywhere that doesnt have concrete walls.
However, theres a song being played in the background that I found to be blasphemy. It was a remix of the After Burner 2.  Its an ok remix I suppose. I have listen to about 15 different mixes including awesome fan mixes of afterburner and this is some where not at the top. Except it didnt make any sense to put that remix in the first place. If I hear the After Burner music I am expected to see something related to After Burner:

  • F-14 Tomcat:  I didnt see any F-14 planes doing any fly bys in the air or any planes for that matter in the sky
  • FIRE! FIRE! FIRE!:  Nope, not even some mad fly attendant telling me theres lock-on to the enemy

They took a total disregard to the After Burner music and just slapped it stupid over the face. Its like playing Sonic the Hedgehog and having the Mario bros theme in the background. However, in this provision if the stage had some elements of Mario like the question mark blocks or green pipes something to associate with Mario, then it ticks all the right boxes.
The only logical reason why PlatinumGames did this from my wild guess is to help promote After Burner Climax which in its own right is a short but cool game. Its an arcade game so dont expect it to be long but very entertaining.

If PlatinumGames wanted to say thanks to Sega and made some common sense, why didnt they just remix the music from Super Hang-on?  Its got a bike for one thing…

Games that are awesome – But people still buy FIFA games over these games in the charts

April 5, 2010

Sadly, the below list will never gain its well deserved credit to its makers. The games simply dont as well as other countrys would have taken it. Perhaps a game cap on football games all together in the UK???

Any self gamer would at least try to rent these out before buying or look them up in the pre used games section.

In no order what so ever:

Astro Boy Omega Factor on GBA

Great visuals for the little handheld. The fan service is nice. I like the cameo characters appearances from astros universe. And the retro intro was a nod to the old school cartoon.

Gameplay is awesome. Yes,  it was hard later on but was worth the traumatic errors. This was soo much better then the PS2 release which came out near the same month. And for its seal of approval, it was developed by Treasure. I brought my copy from asda for £10 some years ago and even till this day, it was the best deal I ever got.

Castlevania Order Of Ecclesia on DS

Before the badness that was Castlevania 2: simons quest. I never touched another castlevania since all those years. It wasn’t to say that I avoid them all together. That was until I saw castlevania OOE. This game was just oozing to be played.

I am not a fan of the castlevania series but I certainly enjoyed this game and that’s saying a lot from some with no background or fanism of the series. If that is a word. The music is noteworthy. I will guarantee, you will bound to have a favourite soundtrack in there. If you don’t have a fav, clear the wax in your ear. In fact, check both ears out.

The game does get a bit tricky later on but stick it out you softy!

Megaman Battle Network Transmission on Gamecube

This game was so good, no one ever got it or understood it.

It had elements from the classic Megaman series like the classic 2d platform, the stupid jump he does whilst having one leg up. Not to mention, some remix music from the past Megaman games. It has some bad moments like any other Megaman game. It was really really easy but never the less, it was enjoyable.

Sonic Rush on DS

great follow up to where the GBA series left off. Remains the solid platform game that you all know. It does add some new moves but it doesn’t retract anything from the game. Top this up with pumping music and you got yourself an ace game.

Unfortunately the sequel, Sonic Rush adventure was badly cocked up. Replaying levels to gain stupid jewels? Crap map navigation? If you look up who co developed the game, the evidence soon starts to stack up. It was none other then Sonic team.

Just shows you how bad Sonic team are compared to a another company who didn’t have Sonic as there main game.

I am sure there was a bigger pile of games then this lot? Oh well. Until next time.

To infinity…..

Capcom: Sweet, OK bye.

Win x Win

As a gamer that owns all 3 home consoles, each console has its own traits that I love about them. The 360 has a strong online service, the PS3 has….ummmm errrrr Uncharted 2, and the Wii has niche games.

Two Wii games that I enjoyed immensely, both different but at the same time so very very similar, could make a rather amazing cross over. No More Heroes and Madworld.

Here’s a list of reasons as to why these two would be perfect together, because everyone loves lists!

1. Both super violent, apart from the Japanese and PAL versions of No More Heroes that got the lovely black ash affects instead of the lovely red stuff that the people in Americaland got.

2. Both contain language more colourful than a clown vomiting out a rainbow (annnnd now that image is burnt into your head, if not…)

3. Both games are made from Frankenstein type Developers. Both consists of staff from former studios that have since been shut down, manly thanks to Capcom, the silly tits!

4. The art styles in both games are very unique more so in Madword then in No More Heroes.

5. Neither were really what I’d call a system seller, they were enjoyed by a huge amount, just not on a level of say Super Mario Galaxy.

6. Both main characters have super fucking awesome primary weapons. Travis Touchdown with his law suit avoiding Beam Katana and Jack Cayman with a fucking retractable Chainsaw on his arm.

To be honest I don’t know how a cross over would work, what with Madworld’s colour pallet being as basic as Avatar’s plot. A full blown game feature the two may not work, however a cameo is each other’s games may.

Picture it! No More Heroes 3. Travis has to visit Varrigan City to take on the Number 1 Ranked Assassin, the one and only Jack Cayman. The entire stage can be black and white, Travis himself could also be black and white maybe changing into full colour each time he finishes off a foe, just to add to the awesome style of it all, and of course we’d have to have the fucking awesome commentators from Madworld running commentary on the fight, cause Travis to question, what the fuck is going on, some awesome rap from the Madworld soundtrack would be sweet as well.

Madworld 2! Jack has to take on the games again, however to reach the end of the saga, he must take on Travis Touchdown himself, hired by The Organizers to take down Jack, as the number 1 ranked Assassin in the UAA! The final battle in full colour, including Jack himself, but with each slice from his chainsaw arm, a tear forms across the screen revealing the black and white style from Madworld.

If anyone from Platinum Games and/or Grasshopper Manufacture, is reading this via the mass amount of tags I’m going to leave. You must know that a lot of people would love for something for this to happen!

Gah I’ve gone and hyped myself up over something that will never happen! Damn companies and their fucking licensing fees and shit!
