OMG! Level 15! - Level 15
Hey everyone, you know that Metal Gear game I was super hyped over and thought was going to be the greatest game of all time? I reviewed it!
Let's talk about cyborg ninjas.
You know, I liked Final Fantasy XIII. It wasn't the best game ever, but it wasn't awful, at least, not in my opinion. After finally beating it a few months ago, I figured it was necessary to buy and play though Final Fantasy XIII-2. Going into it, I expected to completely hate it. Did I hate it? Well...
Mray did a review of Final Fantasy XIII-2! He thought it was the best game ever and that everyone should play it. Just kidding. Or am I?
Man that was a long title.
Do you like Metal Gear? How about Saints Row? Kingdom Hearts? Super Mario World? Spyro? Kirby? If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions, I've got the perfect blog for you! If you answered 'no' to all of them... do you even like video games?
You ever get that feeling when you know you’re about to finish a game, and want more than anything to be done with it? Not because you dislike the game, but because you want the satisfaction of that “The End” screen. And then, once it’s beaten… it’s over.
First of all, sorry for the long lack of blogs lately. I've been really busy lately, and when I'm not busy I'm trying to focus on getting through some games or movies I never got around to. But, this isn't about me. Or, it is, but it's not about... nevermind. Just keep reading.
Before I say anything, I’d like to make sure everyone knows I did not steal this idea from Joe Juba. I stole it from my friend... who stole it from Joe Juba, but details aren’t important. The point is, I’m proud of my Achievements and Trophies, the little rewards you get for completing certain objectives in a game. Obviously, everyone on this site knows what they are, so I’ll just cut to the chase.
Perhaps this may be slightly incriminating to say, but Sonic the Hedgehog was my idol when I was younger. I’m extremely hazy on when I first encountered the series, whether it was from one of the original Genesis games, the cartoon show, or even as late as Sonic Adventure. Whatever my introduction to it, the fact of the matter is that I was hooked. This has actually come back as of late, but to a very lesser extent.
With the Legend of Zelda series, music has been a key factor to the experience since the beginning. From the early and simple NES tunes to the epic orchestrations in Skyward Sword, this series has seen its fair share of atmospheric and amazing songs. These songs not only add to the immersion and scale of the games, but are guaranteed to stick in your head hours after you turn the console off.
Due to the popularity (and I do use that word loosely) of our last dual review, JR and I decided to do it again. This time, however, it's with a topic that's a bit more relevant.
Let’s play pretend. I want you to pretend that you’re interested in the process of how I think up, write, and publish my writings here on GIO. Pretending yet? Good! Now I want you to pretend to read the rest of this blog.
Greetings faithful readers! Do you remember those games you played at an early age? Those games that, throughout the years, have stuck with you due to its sheer impact upon your life? I know I do, and that’s why I’m bringing you my top 12 nostalgic games!
Remember when I said I was going to review every movie in the Nightmare On Elm Street series? Yeah, that failed. It's not that I
