Everybody remembers the box Coming in at the Courageous #1 spot is the one and only The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time. I remember the first time I locked eyes on that beautiful golden goddess of a case. I didn’t think much of it at the time as I already thought me and my bro had the best that N64 had to offer with such titles including Super Mario 64, Super Smash Bros., Goldeneye, and probably a couple of others that I can’t readily remember. What I do remember is that this game is generally loved by most gamers and even if they hadn’t played, they still respected it for the baller that it was at it’s time. But if you were one of the few deku scrubs that didn’t like it, then in the words of Jimmy, “y-y-you c-can pass the blunt to the nigga on your left.” Now hold the applause and drop your drawers cus’ Pappy O’Daniels is about to start his Flower Hour.
Ah, at long last I’ve unlocked the MP5 Navy…wait…the HK53?! What is this bullshit?! Would it really have killed them to have just fucking included the MP5 Navy?! Oh well, whatever, a gun called by any other name shall kill just as efficiently, right? Except… what is that? A 12x scope? On a submachine gun?
You asked and I reluctantly gave in. Upon having negative, preconceived notions of the amped-up version of Vanilla MVC3, I am here to revisit old thoughts, share new ones and ultimately share my final thoughts. Jerry, lead us in… I don’t even… You know, it’s one thing for one to be aware of another’s expectations of them. In this case, I was fully aware of Capcom’s expectations of me buying this new rehash. But it’s another thing entirely to know that information and prove that person or entity wrong. And instead, I proved them right. I don’t know what it is! Maybe it’s my nostalgic love for MVC2 or my undying allegiance to my childhood idols that let me pop claws, throw shields and proton blast the paint off my enemies shiny metal tuchas. One thing you must know about me is that I’m not privy to “buying the hype,” not even for my most favorite games.
Out of my way chump! 1) Road Rash – I seldom play racing games, not because I don’t think they’re good games but because I’m terrible at them. I can’t manage to keep myself from crashing long enough to win a race and thus it’s difficult to enjoy the game to its fullest extent. That said, when you add in weapons, it tips the scale for would-be racing game fans. Plus, who doesn’t want to smack someone on the face with a steel chain while riding a motorcycle? I know I do! I’ll take a lead pipe, leather boot, or a taser as a substitute though. I’m really not that picky. Not since I was a wee lad have I played Road Rash. The last time I recall playing it was on Sega CD. (I was at Sears in the mall, I never owned that travesty of a system). Since then another version was released on the PlayStation which didn’t exactly garner admiration from gamers. Still, that’s no reason to put the kibosh on the franchise. Imagine playing a motorcycle racing game as gorgeous as Gran Turismo or Need for Speed. Now imagine you’re neck and neck with another racer, the finish line in the…
Ronda enters the cage opposite Julia Budd and 39 seconds later she’s added yet another arm to her collection. There’s a serious lesson to be learned in this fight, don’t fuck with Ronda Rousey. Ronda made short work of Julia Budd at last Friday’s Strikeforce Challengers, continuing her streak of armbarring everything in sight in less than a minute. Julia Budd reluctantly tapped out after having her elbow dislocated. (Ouch, Like seriously!) Ronda’s previous bout against Sarah D’Aleio ended somewhat controversially, when Ronda informed the referee that D’Aleio had tapped out. D’Aleio, claimed that she didn’t tap, but she admitted that she screamed out in pain, which qualifies as a verbal submission. Ronda explained that she didn’t feel guilty about the fate which has befallen Julia Budd’s arm and blamed D’Aleio for her need to be so ruthless. Allow me to reiterate, don’t fuck with Ronda Rousey. Am I not merciful?!
Who wants the next Bat Bitch slap!? All across the DC Universe flagship titles are being re-launched; 52 of them to be exact. So of course DC’s greatest super hero (If you said Superman please click the x on the top right hand corner of your browser) would have his numerous comics relaunched as well. Naively, I assumed that issue number one would be somewhat of a fresh start, however that turned out to not exactly be the case. I don’t keep up with Batman comics as much as I used to but I more or less know what’s going on in the life of the caped crusader.
Beauty and Badassery “If I could get in a fight without there being legal repercussions, I would be in a fight every single day.” Ronda told Ariel Helwani on the MMA Hour. As if I wasn’t already infatuated with her, my heart-on (see what I did there?) for Ronda Rousey has effectively graduated from admiration to obsession. “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey, the undefeated mixed martial artist and Olympic Judo medalist is nothing short of a certified badass. In less than two minutes (one minute 39 seconds to be exact) Ronda dispatched of each of her opponents, over three professional bouts, all by arm bar. I wouldn’t be surprised if she has a mantle on her wall where she displays the detached limbs of her defeated foes. If you’re a fan of submission grappling you’ll appreciate watching Ronda’s absolute dissection her opponents with a marriage of immaculate technique and ferocity. If you’re not a fan of submission grappling it’s probably because you’ve never seen Ronda Rousey fight. All your arm are belong to us! Not content with the 9 -5 grind, Ronda chose to embark on a career in MMA at the behest of her training partners and with the blessing of…
For centuries, mankind has found it difficult as I to organize a top 5 list of their favorite videogames. Over the years I have spent countless hours inside the sanctuary of my home, secluded in a dark room with nothing but a console and controller and whatever game I happen to be playing at the time. I have usually always had a good idea about what games I liked the most but sometimes found that I would put a game in my top 5 just after beating it for the first time. I soon learned that after a few replays of a game you thought you instantly loved, you soon begin to find every flaw it has to offer, and whether you can overlook it’s flaws for the overall experience of the game is the true test that it may qualify to be one of your very own “greatest hits”. Over the last few weeks in this cubicle space nightmare I call a job, I have had the opportunity to make, what I think, is my absolute Top 5 list to date.
