1) complain, praise, moan and so on about video games
2) talk about my goings on at university, where i am studying computer games programming!
3) my 20 games list challenge ! yes this is a challenge i have set myself, where for this year (2009) i can only purchase 20 games, across all formats so, it could be 360, ps3, wii, ds, psp, pc or DLC
so keep coming back to see the latest on my challenge.
well thats my first ever post! thanks for reading
WarioWare D.I.Y. A game that allows players to create levels from scratch and change every possible element within. From the characters, the environment, the actions and even the purpose of the mini game itself. Then from there it allows other players to play the players created level through wifi connection.
Nintendo has offered large amounts of support for this game. Having the game's own website feature helpful tutorials for all levels of creators on how to create levels. Giving the viewer great pointers and tips on making the level the best it could be.
WarioWare D.I.Y keeps the same formula from all other WarioWare games, which is a good thing, as these are fun and quick paced to keep the attention of the player throughout the time they are playing.
With the new addition of player creation, it's allowed the game to exceed and expand with unlimited amounts of potential on user creation and maybe, just maybe this will be the start of Nintendo realizing that user creation is something we as players truly do crave in this generation, and perhaps we will see more Nintendo titles such as a Mario Galaxy having user created levels.
it's been a while since i did a post, so thanks to everyone being patient.
i have received a couple of lovely responses asking me to post more, as they enjoy the read, so thankyou very much, i really appreciate it
ok so i thought i would give you an update on my university course, at the moment the big one is in the module 'Game Architecture' where i am to use the unreal editor, to create a single player FPS (First Person Shooter) experience.
At first i didn't really have a strong idea on what to base the game on, whether to go for full out gore and action, or to maybe go for the horror (F.E.A.R) style. I eventually went for the second idea, and am basing the setting in a mental hospital in Kettering where i live. My mum works there as a nurse, and sometimes i visit when she is doing midnight shifts,so i visually have a good idea of how the corridors,rooms etc will look.
Like F.E.A.R i am going to involve it around a young person controlling the devasting happenings, however I am basing it around a young hooded boy, with scissors. as you can tell this is aimed at the more mature audience, or for children with parents who can't give a donkey and make this industry look bad! (but thats another post!)
However the tables turn dramatically and maybe it isn't the hooded boy causing the murders and evil happenings..............
so there you go, i will post more info as the games production has started.
i will also be looking for game testers, to write feedback for my portfolio, so if anyone is willing to play this game, please contact me.
also my first review is up , and the game is Resident Evil 5.
so take a read and again please give some feedback.
so today i couldn't control my desire to play Lord of the Rings Conquest!
but i couldnt face buying it and adding to my list of 20 games, so i borrowed from my good friend Dan. (thanks Dan)
it isn't the best game ever, and im soooooooooo glad i didnt purchase it, and add it to my list!
so i'm still on 18 games to purchase for the rest of 2009!
can i do it?
YES I CAN!
My Recent Reviews
Some people just don't have opinions. Like MRxSKINGLE.
MRxSKINGLE does not have any recent activity. What a slacker! Maybe you should send MRxSKINGLE a private message and ask, "Where are you hiding?"
