Yeah, I Nibble

Posted by on 9:24 am in Game Reviews, Game Reviews-Not Featured | 0 comments

Yeah, I Nibble

I turn on Nibbles and, right away, my senses are assaulted. It’s like the intro to Enter the Void or Funny Games, but even worse! It’s overwhelming. If I follow the red dots with my eyes, I am able to temporarily cling to my sanity, but if I falter for even a moment, I enter a world of chaos within my own mind…..but I must press on. 4-way controls? I’m not a virtuoso. Left and right are what I’m accustomed to. I’ll give it a whirl, but I miss the good ole days. You can have 2 players on this game. Thanks for reminding me that no one wants to play with me, Nibblefucks. Forever alone… Difficulty can be set from 1-100. Level 100 difficulty is referred to as “twiddle fingers”. That sounds kinda creepy. Like, you wouldn’t want to meet a grown man that has the nickname Twiddle Fingers. If ya do, get the fuck outta there. So, I chose level 50. It’s middle of the road and boring, like my life. Just going through the motions. No excitement. Zero ambition. There is an option to increase skill level as you play. I consider this a “better myself” simulator. Maybe I’ll get some sort of satisfaction through making an effort, of which I lack in real life. Time to start the game…. Ok, I heard this game was beautiful, but nothing could have prepared me for this. I see five colors on the screen AT THE SAME TIME, all while maintaining a rock solid eleventy frames per second! I’m surprised my PC can even run this. Good thing I got that 486 upgrade. My character’s name is Sammy. How can I truly immerse myself in this rich gaming environment if I am to take on the identity of another? A marker and a post-it note make short work of this problem: Now I am immersed. I am Tony the Snek. Let’s begin….WHOA! Without warning you accelerate from a dead stop to maddening speeds. I barely catch my breath before I realize I’m heading straight for a wall. I must turn or face certain death as a result of smashing my head to bits. I find my zen place and focus. I recall the meditation techniques I learned from that summer in Tibet. I become one with the snek. I see through the snek’s eyes. I have the snek’s memories. Snek had a life, a family. PASSION. But a greater snek was jealous of what snek had. Snek was accused of snek crimes he did not commit. He was sentenced to spend his time in this snek prison for an undetermined amount of snek time. Everyday he eats numbers and grows bigger until he dies, but he never really dies. He is reborn to repeat indefinitely. He does not hunger. He does not sleep. He does not dream. He does not love. He just plays……The Game. Anyway, this shit’s a pretty fun time waster when you have absolutely nothing else to do. Be snek!...

Maybe You Missed It: South Park: The Stick of Truth

Maybe You Missed It: South Park: The Stick of Truth

If you’ve had the itch to play an old school, turn-based rpg, then look no further. Its time to see who missed out on the gem that is The Stick of Truth! The turn-based gameplay I’m sure turned a lot of people off in the beginning, but this game definitely delivers. Action packed cut scenes bring all the antics you expect from South Park, putting the game together like one long episode. With cameos from just about every character South Park has created and a main menu that resembles Facebook, you can now be friends with everyone. The game starts off as you and your family move in to your new house in South Park. Once you’re done deciding how you want to look, your dad kicks you out of the house to make some new friends. Butters sees you’re new to the neighborhood and invites you to play a game with him and the rest of the kids. Upon arrival at Cartman’s house, Cartman asks for your name, which really doesn’t matter to him apparently and then he asks you what class you want to be. With the choices of Warrior, Mage, Thief and Jew, regardless of what you pick, Cartman has something funny and slightly negative to say about you. After finishing you’re character set up, Cartman and Clyde teach you how to fight, making it a point to comment on the turn based gameplay saying it sucks, but that’s how the did it in “the olden days”. Now its time to explore the small town of South Park. They did a really good job on keeping the town small, but making it feel huge. You can go into just about every building, some of them start off locked, but you eventually make a friend that has a key. You get new perks for getting friends on facebook, so make sure you talk to everyone, and the conversations you hear people having and the random comments thrown your way as you walk around town are flat out hilarious. !!!FILLER!!! while walking passed the police station, a cop will blurt out “We’ve been getting reports of a bunny rabbit running around someones front yard, think I’m gonna go check it out”. The progression of the story gets worse and worse(or better and better, depending how you want to look at it) as you take down U.F.O.s and learn how to give abortions. Randy makes repeat cameos to let you know he still knows exactly whats going on, even if everyone else in town thinks hes clueless. The comedic level of story telling in this game makes going from a kids backyard to the City Wok to fight Mongolians to the park to put up ManBearPig sensors seem like the logical thing to do. The weapons and items are worth checking out too, as all are real life objects that have been given a realistic price tag from the perspective of a ten year old. Bottles of water are cure spells, cookies will refill your health, soda and redbull will increase your skill points used I combat. The weapons are all things you would imagine kids pretending to use as weapons also, Butters’ signature weapon is a standard carpentry hammer. Eventually you do level up to use real weapons,...

First Thoughts: Dragonball Xenoverse

First Thoughts: Dragonball Xenoverse

I recently picked up a copy of Dragonball Xenoverse after hearing they had redone the play mechanics specifically for this game. After checking every store in a 5 mile radius from my house, I finally found a copy, instilling a sense that i had just picked up a fantastic game. Overall, I was not blown away, but it’s beautiful and for an rpg fighting game with as many character customization options, it does just fine. Out the gate, Trunks(who, for all intents and purposes, is Jean-Claude Van Damme from Time Cop) makes a wish to the dragon for a powerful warrior to help him fix time and, this is where I lose it a tad, the dragon sends you. Now, why the dragon decides to send Trunks someone who’s not even worthy of training under Krillin to help him, i don’t know, but that’s something we’re all just gonna have to get over. When you’re done coping, you can choose between 5 different races: Human, Saiyan, Namekian, Majin, or a member of the Frieza clan. I made the obvious choice and picked saiyan. After figuring out what color you want your clothes to be and deciding what obligatory crazy hair style you want, Trunks shows you some messed up stuff and sends you back in time to fix it.   Starting with the arrival of Radditz, events all over time are ending up with the wrong victor. You get to witness a piece of one of the events and then you get sent to TokiToki city where people will tell you everything there is cool, but none of its open. TokiToki is the main hub of the entire game. This is where you you find side, or “parallel” quests, find main characters to train you or teach you new skills and for those of you that have the game, but are pissed cause they can’t fight their friends as Goku and Vegeta, this is where you do it, not the main menu. TokiToki does eventually open up, its just confusing because a lot of people you talk to tell you “this is where you get this” or “this is where you do that” then you go there and some robot tells you “sorry we’re closed”. The story is a blast to watch and be a part of, the fighting, and maybe this is because I’ve only been playing as the one character, seems very much repetitive. You get new super moves like the kamehameha, kaioken and finally, the ability to power up to super saiyan, but I have yet to see a new “basic” combo, and since that’s what you end up using the most of, game play can get a little bland. There’s also the fact that since you are your own person now, you need to train and level up if you don’t want that bitch Nappa to kick your ass in under a minute. So now there’s a grind, and believe me, it IS a grind. I had to play the same mission 11 times in a row to level up enough to beat a mission that involved killing 20 peeons. And after that i had to do it 6 more times to beat Frieza. Going back to what I said earlier, however, this is exactly what I expected and i welcome...
