    • Majora's Mask speed run!

      8 years ago

      dark_assassi

      Over last weekend since I had a bit of down time i decided to crack open some of my older games library and pick one game to play through and beat 100% from start to finish, sorting over Donkey Kong country, Golden eye and some old PS1 games I decided on a play through of Majora's mask with the hitch that i would not look up any strategy guides and play through it entirely by memory and tips the game gave me.

      i started off lazily coasting through the very long intro to the game, the first entire 3 in game days of it feel the longest since your stuck as a Deku and cant really leave town without making use of a glitch.

      the real game in my opinion takes off once you get your ocarina back and can now leave town, fight monsters and start completing dungeons.And that's what i did, in the first 3 days as link i completed the first temple and got the mask of scents, returned to town and got the Breman mask and then ran off towards the Gorons and the fire temple were I got the Goron mask, completed the temple, got the mask of Don Gero and then headed off to the ranch to get the bunny hood, played the song of time and set the counter back to day 1.

      This was the hardest of the 3 days as I still had 2 temples and a lot of masks to get still. First off i got a big goron bomb, win goron races, start making gilded sword, opened the ranch, agreed to help kill the visitors, snagged epona, made my way over to the Zoran zone, got the zora mask, got all the eggs for the pirates, warped back to the ranch, killed the visitors and saved the ranch, warp to town and save the old lady form the bomb shop to get teh bomb mask, warped back and killed sea snakes to get the final eggs, learned a new song *yay* opened water temple, warped back to the mountain, and picked up then redropped off the razor sword in order to get the gilded sword, teleported to the water temple, beat water temple, teleport to ranch, save the milk wagon and get the Romani mask, catch my breath *breath, breath* OK now go collect gilded sword and set time back to first day!

      The last 3 days.
      I spent a lot of time juggling the Kafie quest line (awards 4 masks) and completing the final temple (awards 1 mask in the temple but awards 3 masks from the quest chain up to it) AND even had to kill all of the skulturas to get the mask of truth and the big rupee pouch (needed to buy the all night mask). However I found this to be a lot easier than. The only mask i don't remember when i got was the kamaro mask as it can be found at night just outside of town for just playing the song of healing for someone.

      Last day final hours
      After giving all of my hard earned masks to the kids running around Majora you get the final mask of the game (fierce deity link mask) and really it makes the last fight so easy you can just Z target and spam attack.

    • Angry Birds review

      I never wanted to play angry birds on principal but I needed to play something new and i did not want to spend a lot of money.

      This game is of very high quality for a low quality game, confused? well what I really mean to say is Angry Birds is the type of game you would usually expect an individual to release from a website such as newgrounds or Armor games, as a result this game has to makeup for lack of graphics and content with gameplay.

      Sound
      The music in this game was minimal and I found at times this was a bad thing as a lot of time is spent lining up shots and the constant snorting of the pigs gets annoying as the only ambient sound in most levels. the bird sounds are very obviously just sounds recorded and then the pitch is slightly altered, I found myself muting it in the later levels because of the constant "weee!" sound.

      Gameplay
      The core of this game was the slingshot and it felt really nice when it worked, however I found myself hating the rng (random number generation) caused a lot of frustrating situations and even a few times the level would just start falling apart without me even taking the first shot.

      Overall
      After playing this game it made me start to think that a lot of people have never played a free game before and that the people who make great content over at newgrounds and armor games have been getting ripped off for years by offering so many games not only as good as Angry Birds but many many more that are better.

      I ended up beating the game for one reason only. Me and my brother got into a competition of who could complete the game the fastest and well, I ended up winning and had more golden stars.

    • Game Review #3

      8 years ago

      dark_assassi

      Bad games is typically something I avoid playing either by checking out reviews online or by asking others but every once in a while i end up getting stuck playing a really bad game, it happens!

      Gameplay and Flow
      A game that comes to mind is Sniper Ghost Warrior and I dreaded opening it again in order to get a fresh sense of how fail this game really is. To start off the gameplay was bad in a sense that the title is misleading, i thought this was going to be a sneaky sniper game but every time i tried actually sneaking alarms would sound and bullets would start wizzing at me from some random enemy on the other side of the map and initially I thought "maybe I'm not being sneaky enough" and I started tacitly crawling across the map as far away from patrols as possible and because of invisible walls (bad level design) that was not very far, only to get spotted anyways (bad A.I.). At times it felt like standing and running would have yielded at least similar to better results.

      Another disappointing aspect of the gameplay was when your cover was blown (at one point a bomb throws off the trajectory of your "killing shot" bullet) and your forced to enter into close assault rifle range were combat seems clunky and its not nearly as up to par with other similar games in that area (also i found that once your cover is blown is impossible to avoid getting shot at, even if you were to dive into heavy vegetation the AI shoot directly at you regardless (also bad A.I.).

      Sound
      Hooked to my gaming computer via digital optical audio cables I have a full 5.1 surround sound system and I like to boast about the quality of it. So when it comes to game sounds I find it very important for the sounds to be up to par with the game title. In sniper ghost wolf however I found that gun noises did not sound authentic and the musical score was not always appropriate for the situation but typically it was on par with other games of the fps genera (granted that's not necessarily a complement) .

      I went out and bought Little Big Planet 2 today and figured it would be a good game to write my narrative, I had originally owned the first Little Big Planet game and I really enjoyed it.

      pod_concept2.jpg

      After buying the game John, Scott and I (all three of us are in your course) raced back to campus to play on my 32" HDTV (with surround sound :D) and immediately after starting the game we were greeted with a "you've played the first game! here is all the stuff you unlocked from it!" which was great because we spent the next 2-3 minutes customizing our sack person to our liking whether it be silly or a reflection of our personalities.

      heavyrain-jayden.jpg

      The very first level is spent getting introduced to the basic controls of Little Big Planet 2 but also servers and a sort of "credits" level that creatively shows who the makers of the game is (love it too :D) and even tho it may sound a bit boring (oh yay credits) it has enough stuff going on triggered by the player to keep it exciting.

      lbp2-gamescom-AvalonIntro.jpg

      The actual first level of the game introduces the player to the main plot of the game were a vacuum like thing is sucking up parts of Little Big Planet and you must get initiated into the alliance in order to help fight back. You then embark on many trials, this starts off by giving players one of the new features of LBP2, the gripple grapper, this device is used to latch onto "foam" blocks and lets them swing and pull on things and in multiplayer not only can you grab other players but you can use it to be nice and potentially save someone from falling or be mean and drag someone down with you which leads to a lot of fun "Oh man did you see that!" moments. Another feature they introduce you to is jump pads which can lead to faster paced platforming but the real fun from jump pads is when you mix them with the gripple grapper to propel your self and whip your sack person over obstacles or under them if that's whats called for. Overall 10 minutes is not nearly enough time to properly review this game and its possible that because we were playing it co-cooperatively that we might have missed out on some of the smaller details.

      I've been putting off playing it but I've finally decided to give Plants Vs Zombies a try (they have the game available from their website in a full version flash).
      www.popcap.com/games/free/pvz

      The reason I put off playing this game is because I find most (not all) games that make their rounds on an appstore of some kind are typically degenerate, non challenging and repetitive (repetitive in a sense that they work on a "Insert X and Y always happens" and originally going into PvZ I assumed the same thing.

      Playing this game was actually, dare I say, fun. The reason it was so fun in my opinion was because, while it was very basic in its design the pacing of difficulty and introduction to mechanics is good, you never feel overwhelmed like most tower defense games end up doing. Level design was set up to give the player a preview of what zombies will be attacking in the upcoming level and allowing you to pick your towers (different variants of plants) to repel with with, this gameplay mechanic is very intuitive as you learn the various weakness of the different zombie types (like how magnet plants are effective against bucket head zombies in that it removes the bucket from their head leaving making them significantly easier to kill with even the most basic of plants. A long term mechanic of the game is the acquisition of money in order to unlocks more advanced versions of plants (such as the cattail upgrade for lilipads).

      After playing for the first initial 10 minutes I went and got the full version of the game and beat the story mode then proceeded to beat all the challenges. Eventually get bored but in terms of dollars to time having fun ratio I feel it was money well spent. The only negative comment I have about the game is its very easy... at no point did I ever feel challenged to have to play well and that reflected as I beat the normal campaign without failing a single level.

      Silver Trophy!

      oh and the Zen Garden is a complete and terrible waste of time.... that's bad too.

      Well i never really expected to come back to this site after being away from it for so long but one of the requirements for my Game design and Production course is to maintain a blog that I can give updates through about the progress of my game as well as post short critisims of games that I play.

      For the most part this means I'm back! But more importantly I have to make these journal posts to a somewhat higher standard then I usually do because my Professor will be reading them whom you can follow at @syberspaz over on twitter (shameless plug).

      Look for my next update soon as our first assignment is to play either a game I never have before or a bad one for 10 minutes then review it.
