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.
