Review a Bad Game Day






Back in January Eric Bailey of Nintendo Legend put out an idea on Twitter, on 8/8 there will be a new holiday for gamers titled "Review a Bad Game Day" of which many bloggers have signed up to take part, check out this link to see the other reviews.

So what constitutes a bad game? I mean every game that I think is sub par could be lauded by someone else and vice versa. I also tend to stay away from the baddest of games due to reading bad reviews or by word of mouth.

So I started thinking to myself what games are not just famous for being the worst, but regarded as legends in the field of pure stinkage

And this picture came to mind



I mean most people on the internet have gotten a great laugh out of this picture, but who can say they've actually played the game it is from? Let alone to completion?

Certainly not me, which is why I chose this game

So on with the review!

My Top 10 Nintendo 64 Games



A while ago I posted my top ten favourite Gamecube games.

I thought it was about time for another top ten games list so here are my top ten favourite Nintendo 64 games.

Rules are one game per franchise, so if I picked LOZ:MM I also couldn't pick Ocarina of Time. Also counts towards Perfect Dark as it's the spiritual successor to GoldenEye

So with that on with the list!

10. Space Station Silicon Valley



This game is just downright wacky yo. You control a microchip that can take over the bodies of animals on a technologically advanced amusement park including Snowball chucking parachute penguins and their rocket powered king, a bear with a unicycle for legs and a ram on a spring

My Top 10 Game Guns



I said last week I would post another top 10 and to be honest I was struggling to think what to do.

But then my awesome friend Rooney Reverb asked on Facebook for opinions on favourite videogame guns and posted the results on his blog The Cantina Crowd which inspired me to write up my own.

I'm using the same rules as he did which are as follows

No melee weapons (obviously)
No superweapons (ie. Hammer of Dawn, Orbital Ion Cannon, etc), but vehicle/ship mounted weapons DO count.
Has to be from a game that saw general release (No alpha/beta test games that never made it onto the market!)

Also this is my own personal favourite list. Don't agree? Post YOUR favourites.

Got it? Good.

Now on with the guns!!!

10. Genki Manapult


We start off with the Genki Manapult from Saints Row the Third, also known as Professor Genki's Super Ballistic Manapult, which is a vehicle available in the Funtime! Pack DLC.

You're driving around in a vehicle with a massive cat face on the front and you are able to suck up pedestrians and fire them at will while listening to The Stars and Stripes. Okay that's pretty cool in itself but you are also able to get into the vehicle and launch yourself into the air gaining some serious hangtime.

Game Reviews - Alice Madness Returns



I'm a big fan of the American McGee's Alice so when I got this sequel for my birthday I just had to play it.

So it's once more down the rabbit hole I go

My Top 10 Mario Music



As I said last week I would post my top 10 favourite Mario tracks so here they are.

The only rule I put on this is that I could only pick one song per game, so if I wanted to add Dire Dire Docks from Mario 64 I also couldn't add Bowsers Road.

Also this is my own personal favourite list. Don't agree? Post YOUR favourites.

Got it? Good.

Now on with the music!!!

My brother Dan sent me this link.

It's the Star Wars Trilogy like you've never heard it before! Join voice actors Billy West, Tara Strong, Maurice LaMarche, John DiMaggio, Jess Harnell and Rob Paulsen as they re-create the magic of the Star Wars films, albeit in their own special way with narration by Batman himself - Kevin Conroy! You never know what you'll hear when this cast gets together.

On March 31st, 2012 some of the greatest voice talent on the planet descended on the Emerald City Comicon to give you one of the greatest, most outrageous readings of Star Wars you will ever hear!

My Top 10 Sonic Music



As I said last week I would post my top 10 favourite Sonic the Hedgehog tracks so here they are.

The only rule I put on this is that I could only pick one song per game, so if I wanted to add Green Hill zone from Sonic 1 I also couldn't add Marble Garden.

Also this is my own personal favourite list. Don't agree? Post YOUR favourites.

Got it? Good.

Now on with the music!!!

Series Review - Futurama



It was only a matter of time when I uttered the words “Series Reviews” on this blog until Futurama appeared. You could say it was mandatory

My Top 10 Game Music



Recently on Twitter 8-Bit Girl asked for some recommendations for videogame soundtracks.

So I thought I would post my top ten favourite tracks from videogames.

The only rule I put on this is that I could only pick one song per franchise, so if I wanted to add a song from Mario 64 I couldn't add one from any other Mario game.

Also this is my own personal favourite list. Don't agree? Post YOUR favourites.

Got it? Good.

Now on with the music!!!

My Top 10 Gamecube Games



Yesterday on the 3rd of May, 8-Bit Girl posted this

"10 years ago on the 3rd May, Nintendo's Gamecube console was released in the UK. A compact cubic box with matching tiny discs, the box retains a soft spot in many Nintendo fans hearts even today. And why exactly? Well, we were all treated to an excellent series of games for starters."

Fishy's Film Reviews - The Smurfs



There is a place. A place that knows no sadness, where even feeling blue is a happy thing. A place inhabited by little blue beings three apples high. It lies deep within an enchanted forest, hidden away beyond the medieval village. Most people believe this place is made up, only to be found in books or children's imagination. Well, we beg to differ.
