AWFUL GAME: Sonic 3D Blast (Sega Genesis)

The FINAL review of 2011!

The final review of this year is Sonic 3D Blast (a.k.a. Sonic 3D: Flickies Island) for the Sega Genesis (MegaDrive).

A game that's not-so-classic in a classic series.

I know I'm gonna get a lot of hate from many Sonic fanboys, so if you like this game, feel free to disagree with me.

I used to like this game, but now looking back at it, it definitely sucks.

Anyway, hope you enjoy, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year 2012, and Happy 5th Anniversary!

Fire Pro Wrestling Returns (PlayStation 2) Review

Another review that was supposed to be done by Black Friday, but due to personal issues, the review was delayed, and as a result, I missed out on two live streams: one last week and one this week. On top of all that, there were some issues rendering the video at first, but I finally did it.

This review may be a LITTLE bit biased, but can you really blame me for loving the Fire Pro Wrestling series so much?

With that said, I hope you enjoy my review and if you're gonna attend my live stream this Sunday, I'll see you there!

Fire Pro Wrestling 1 & 2 (Game Boy Advance) Review

This video was supposed to be uploaded by Thanksgiving, with my Fire Pro Returns review uploaded by Black Friday. Unfortunately, due to personal shit happening, both were delayed. You can expect my Fire Pro Returns review to be uploaded by tomorrow or Wednesday, but here's my review of Fire Pro Wrestling 1 and 2 on the GBA! 

Hope you enjoy!

Wii Reviews - Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth (WiiWare)

This video was supposed to be uploaded on Halloween, but despite the fact that it's a short review, I had problems uploading it by the time. 

The biggest issue that held me back a bit is because my DVD Ripper is so goddamn slow when it rips the recorded footage. 

Now that it's all said and done, here is my latest episode of Wii Reviews with Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth. 

Hope you enjoy and Happy Halloween! 

And be sure to join my live stream this Saturday at 8:00 PM Eastern U.S. Time on Ustream!

Mighty Morphin' Gundam Rangers

Sorry if this review came out so short, but I couldn't go very in-depth with these games and I didn't wanna drag on for too long.

Anyway, this is my review of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: The Fighting Edition for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and Gundam Wing: Endless Duel for the Super Famicom. Two great fighting games that pretty much use the same engine.

Hope you enjoy!

And yes, I will be doing another live stream on Ustream this Saturday at 8:30 PM Eastern U.S. Time:

I Have Google+

So I noticed that Google+ is becoming the next big social networking site. Lots of people are joining and sites like The New York Times say it might rival Facebook (Which wouldn't surprise me considering what happened to MySpace).

Since I also have Facebook and Twitter to promote my stuff, I think Google+ would be great to promote my stuff as well.

So if you have Google+, you can follow/add/whatever me here:

Response to Animegod500's Movie Review Challenge: Space Thunder Kids Review

The original video where Animegod500 challenged me:

He was disappointed that I didn't challenge him to review a good movie, so he challenged me to review a bad movie instead. Fortunately, that was an easy choice.

This is my review of Space Thunder Kids, an obscure Korean robot anime that doesn't even remotely make sense. As a Super Robot and Real Robot anime fan, I feel insulted.

This review came out short because there wasn't a whole lot to talk about.

Oh and sorry for the bad audio.

Here's the movie if you're curious enough to see it:

Let's Rant About Something #2

In my latest rant, I talk about Capcom's questionable decisions as of late. Is Capcom really doomed in a few years or will they do something to save them?

The views expressed in this video are mine, but they're most likely yours too.

AWFUL GAME: The Three Stooges (NES)

NOTE: This video was originally uploaded on July 10, 2011

This review was supposed to be uploaded a lot earlier, but I didn't feel like it at the time. But now it's here. My review of The Three Stooges on the Nintendo Entertainment System.

You can probably tell that I was in an "I don't care" mood. Really, I don't give two shits about this game. The only reason I reviewed it is because I played it when I was a kid. I love the Three Stooges shorts from back in the day because they were friggin hilarious, and seeing a video game really doesn't make sense to me.

Not really one of my best reviews IMO, but it should satisfy you regardless.

Hope you enjoy!

AWFUL GAME: Mario's Time Machine (SNES)

AWFUL GAME: Pit Fighter (SNES)

With 4000 subscribers and support from all my fans, AWFUL GAMES is back with a vengeance!

Today's episode covers a game I played in my childhood and, DEFINITELY the worst fighting game ever created:

Pit Fighter for the SNES.

I've played fighting games all my life and I know for damn sure that there is no other fighting game worse than this. You can bank on that!

Oh and this review won't use any of the old gags to try to make it funny. Instead, this review puts more emphasis on wits, sarcasm and wisecracks, although there is still some cussing. This is good for a game like this because...let's face it. Nobody can take ANY of these characters seriously.

I also made a new AWFUL GAMES logo and theme song to make the series fresh.

Anyway, hope you enjoy!

Blog Review: Ultimate Mortal Kombat (Nintendo DS)

This review is a follow-up to my Mortal Kombat Advance review (Part 1) (Part 2). just like how my Sonic Classic Collection review was a follow-up to my Sonic the Hedgehog Genesis review on YouTube. This is Ultimate Mortal Kombat for the Nintendo DS.

And if you can't tell already, yes. This is an enhanced port of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, hence why this is a follow-up to my MKA review. But does it make-up for the abysmal GBA port like Sonic Classic Collection did with Sonic Genesis? Oh you bet your ass it does!

As you can see from the screenshots here, this game emulates the original Arcade game VERY well. Now I wasn't expecting a perfect Arcade port of UMK3 on the GBA, but MKA could've at least been a fun port, but nnnnnoooooo. They had to rape the A.I. and for whatever reason fuck up the ability to perform combos and special attacks. Not to mention the game was extremely glitchy.

Even though the DS is 10x more powerful than the GBA, they could've released MKA without all the problems I mentioned, but they didn't. Thankfully, this game doesn't have any of these problems. The A.I. is more or less the same as it was in the original Arcade version and you can perform moves and combos easily, which is a HUGE improvement. You might get your ass kicked by Shao Kahn, but I thought he was the exact same way in the original.

They also put the second screen to good use. If you're a novice to the MK games, the command list is right above the game screen (or below depending on the settings). This is good if you wanna perform Fatalities, Brutalities, etc.

Here's the character selection screen and it's just like in the Arcade version. You have every single character from the original UMK3 as well as Ermac, Mileena, and the original Sub-Zero as the hidden characters. Keep in mind that Noob Saibot and Rain were in the console ports back in the day.

Another awesome addition is ability to play online via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. So not only is this a great way to play UMK3 on the go, you can face your friends together and online as well. But DO NOT play with random players because they're so cheap it's not even funny.

This game also comes with a puzzle game called Puzzle Kombat.

In this game, you can play as the following characters: Sub-Zero, Nightwolf, Ermac, Baraka, Sindel, and Scorpion. You can also play as other characters but you have to unlock them in a certain way in the game. They are: Kenshi, Bo Rai Cho, Jade, Kabal, Mileena, and Raiden. But really, it doesn't make much of a difference gameplay-wise because you don't play as the characters. Just the puzzle game. You see them fight, but on the top screen (or bottom screen depending on the settings).

In this puzzle game, you have different colored blocks and your goal is to group together the same colored blocks. Then at some point, the MK medallion in a specific color will drop down and you have to match the corresponding color in order for them to break and avoid filling up everything, much like in Panel De Pon/Puzzle League, Columns and Puyo Puyo. Sometimes a bomb would come down and if it touches a specific color, even if the same colored blocks are separated, all the blocks of that color will explode. Whoever fills up their screen completely with blocks loses the round.

Now you think the characters on top (or bottom) are completely useless, right? Well not really. In some parts of the game, a character will use a special attack in order to prevent you from breaking all the blocks. For example, Sub-Zero might use his freeze attack to freeze all blocks.

After the final round, the winner will perform his or her fatality automatically.

Oh and this game has online play as well.

So even though I mainly play this game for UMK3 (like most people do), Puzzle Kombat is a nice addition to play with on-the-go and it's really fun to play. I think it's similar to the puzzle game in Mortal Kombat: Deception.

All in all, this is an excellent port and I think the now defunct Midway did this as an apology to everyone who bought MKA and was extremely disappointed about it, much like Sega made Sonic Classic Collection as an apology for Sonic the Hedgehog Genesis.

And this definitely makes up for the lack of fighting games on the DS. All we have is this game, Jump Superstars and Jump Ultimate Stars (which are only available in Japan), the Kamen Rider Dragon Knight game (which was ehh compared to the Wii version), and maybe a couple of Dragon Ball Z, Naruto and Bleach games. Other than that, there's so little and so few and far between.

Anyway, I give this game a Gold.

My next blog review will be on Planet Puzzle League, which in my opinion is the one of the greatest puzzle games of all time. Until then, see ya.

Super Sentai Games

AWFUL GAMES will return very soon, but first is a review dedicated to everyone in Japan who suffered and died in the recent earthquake and tsunami. Today I'm gonna review all 5 Super Sentai games released only in Japan (obviously because Americans have Power Rangers instead), including a re-review of an old game:

-Chojin Sentai Jetman (Famicom - 1991)
-Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger (Famicom - 1992)
-Gekisou Sentai Carranger: Zenkai! Racer Senshi (Super Famicom: SuFami Turbo - 1996)
-Hyakuju Sentai Gaoranger (PlayStation - 2001)
-Ninpu Sentai Hurricanger (PlayStation - 2002)

I also did this review to celebrate both the 35th Anniversary of Super Sentai and the upcoming Wii game Super Sentai Battle: Ranger Cross, which will be the sixth Sentai game released on home consoles (not counting Super Sentai Battle: Dice-O since that was an Arcade game).

You may or may not agree with my opinions on some of these games and that's ok, but remember, this review is coming from a long time fan, so I have my criticisms.

Next review will indeed be the return of AWFUL GAMES, but I'm gonna wait 'til I reach 4,000 subscribers because I'm almost there.

Anyway, hope you enjoy!

Dragonball Evolution "Tribute"

I love the Dragon Ball anime and manga and I enjoyed Dragon Ball Z as well (at least until the Buu Saga). Didn't care much for GT.

As a fan of the series, Dragonball Evolution is one of the worst adaptations I've ever seen.

Simply put: Dragon Ball does NOT translate well in live action!

The people who made this piece of shit movie tried real hard to make this movie realistic, and they failed miserably. What made Dragon Ball fun was its over-the-top action and adventure (i.e. characters with big hair, giant energy attacks that could destroy an entire planet, flying clouds that could take you anywhere, anthropomorphic creatures, etc.). Dragonball Evolution lacks those things, but if the movie had them, it would come off as extremely cheesy.

See what I mean? Dragon Ball can't translate into a good live-action movie and this proves it. It's an extremely hard task.

Not to mention this movie has abysmal writing, terrible acting, piss poor casting, awful directing, and it's full of inaccuracies. The main plot is about a teenage boy named Goku who fights to save the world from Piccolo and get the girl (Chi-Chi) he wants from his high school. Now does that remind you of Dragon Ball? I didn't think so.

So what I decided to do here is compile a "tribute" music video for this godawful movie, and there's only one song that fits appropriately:

South Park's "Let's Fighting Love" from the episode Good Times With Weapons.

This was inspired by jedite1's review of Street Fighter: The Movie. He would use this song during stupid fight scenes.

Hope you enjoy!

Let's Rant About Something #1

The debut of my rant series!

My first topic is something that's been getting under my skin ever since the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan, and it's something that's been bothering me ever since this fearmongering bullshit started.

Hope you enjoy!

My REAL Thoughts on the Nintendo 3DS

Ok. This is a follow-up to my April Fool's Day 2011 prank. This is my REAL thoughts on the 3DS. Meaning, my honest opinion on it. No lies. No jokes. No BS. I'm serious this time.

And again, this isn't a review. Just my thoughts.

I got to play the 3DS at a local GameStop today. A kid was playing before me and even though I was quiet, I was anxiously waiting and waiting and waiting until I FINALLY started to play. The kid turned off the system before he left, which gave me an opportunity to lower the 3D slider in case if I had problems. THEN I raised the slider up after I turned it on.

That said, the 3D effect on the 3DS is VERY impressive. It looked a little funny at first, but after a few adjustments and standing straight, I began to really enjoy it and I had no major issues whatsoever. No eye strain, no loss of vision, no headaches, no dizziness, nothing. I came out just fine. And I played that thing for quite a while. Focusing back and forth from 3D to 2D and vice versa wasn't a problem either.

As for how good the 3D effect is, the best way to compare this is like looking at a window. You can't touch anything because there's something blocking in-between, but everything looks vivid. It's like you're watching computer graphics and animation in-person behind a glass wall. That's how awesome the 3D effect is! And without the need of glasses, it makes things more interesting.

One thing I noticed is that if you close one eye and leave one eye open, it will go back to 2D. That means you can only see the 3D effect with both of your eyes. Kinda like an optical illusion.

But if you've never played the 3DS and are skeptical about the 3D effect, I recommend starting with 3D turned off and then slowly raise the slider until you're used to it, which only takes about less than 5 seconds.

As for the graphics, they look impressive as well. Not only does it look better than the PSP, but I think it looks better than most GameCube games (And I mean ones that aren't F-Zero GX quality). It especially looks better than all the shovelware and third-party games on the Wii. So this is definitely NOT a DS or DSi with 3D effects. There's other things too.

You have the same buttons as the DS (A,B,X,Y,D-Pad,Start and Select) but you also get a new analog stick. And let me tell you, the analog stick on this thing is much better than the analog stick on the PSP. I own a PSP and I wasn't impressed with the analog stick. The PSP's analog stick feels pretty stiff and can be hard to control at times. The 3DS analog stick feels a lot smoother and it feels almost like a console analog stick. My only gripe about it is that the analog stick is ABOVE the D-Pad. I personally prefer D-Pad above analog, but I can deal with it.

Another gripe I have is the Power Button. It's in the same position as the Start and Select button were on the DS Lite (I never played the DSi or DSi XL, so don't ask me about those). And I play the DS Lite A LOT, so when I get the 3DS and I wanna pause the game for a bit, I might turn off the game by accident.

Also, the only 3DS color I like so far is the Cosmo Black one. Aqua Blue looks nice when it's closed, but it looks awkward when it's open. You have the bottom part blue, but the top part is black? Shouldn't both sides be one color?

Maybe they'll fix these things with the first revision, so I hope they do.

I haven't tried the other features on the 3DS like the camera, web browser, etc., so I don't have anything to say about those things at this point. All I did was play on the 3DS and the game I played was Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition, which kicks ass!

After all, it's fucking Street Fighter! What do you expect?

So my final thoughts are, the 3DS is a revolutionary handheld that has a bright future ahead. And if you've seen E3 last year, you know that this thing will have a TON of third-party support, so there's no doubt that Nintendo's dominance will continue with the 3DS.

I was gonna get it at launch day until I found out about the price. I predicted $200, but it came out $250. I might as well wait 'til Christmas.

But I guess it's a fair price considering the 3D effect and at least it's below $300.

Now does that mean the NGP (Next Generation Portable) will suck? Not at all. It may not do as well as the 3DS because of how revolutionary it is, but it will do well on its own. Sony NGP looks impressive as well, but it's not exactly mind-blowing or revolutionary. 3G has been done before and that was on mobile phones. Same goes for the touch screen. Really, the only thing NGP has over any other handheld is that it's the first to use TWO analog sticks instead of just one like 3DS, PSP and Neo Geo Pocket. It also has a touchpad on the back. Other than that, hardware wise, it's just a PSP with better graphics and a bunch of crap in it.

And I heard the NGP is gonna emphasize on digital downloads, which is HUGE turnoff for me. That means I might not be able to see a good selection of NGP games at retail. This could hurt the chances of obscure games and overlooked gems being released.

But in the end, it all comes down to games. Right now, it looks like the 3DS is gonna have an awesome lineup for 2011. The best games that are currently out are the Rayman game, Pilotwings Resort, and Street Fighter. I don't care much for generic racers like Ridge Racer and Asphalt. Besides, I'm waiting for Mario Kart and F-Zero to come out on the 3DS, so there's no point. But what's coming out later is the 3D N64 classics like Star Fox 64 and Zelda: Ocarina of Time (which will also include the Master Quest version from the GameCube). We also have Contra 5 coming out,a new Metal Gear Solid game, two new Resident Evil games, a new Assassin's Creed, a new Bomberman, a new Kingdom Hearts game, a new Paper Mario game, a new Saints Row, Samurai Warriors, and a new original 3D Mario game.

For the NGP, it has a tentative release date of Fall 2011, and based on that tentative date and games Sony showed at GDC 2011, the lineup doesn't look all that impressive. I'm not a fan of generic first-person shooters like Call of Duty and Killzone, so I'll definitely pass on those. And LittleBigPlanet was already on the regular PSP and I have it for my PSP.
But I'm confident that the lineup will improve over time.

So I hope you enjoyed reading my blog and be sure to check out more blogs and blog reviews in the near future. The games I plan on reviewing here are...

My Thoughts on the Nintendo 3DS

Not a review. Just me expressing my opinion on the 3DS. I talk about why this thing is a HUGE disappointment.

AKI Pro Wrestling 64: Episode 4 - WWF No Mercy (2000)

AT LONG LAST! AKI Pro Wrestling 64 is finally finished!

Here it is, folks. The last episode.

This episode covers WWF No Mercy, the most popular of the AKI games and the best one next to Virtual Pro Wrestling 2. Find out to see why it's so awesome!

It seems the review turned out a lot longer than I expected, but I had a lot to say about this game. I love it. To me, no wrestling game was as fun as No Mercy was (with the exception of the Fire Pro Wrestling series). Not even the future SmackDown!/SmackDown vs. Raw games and WWE GameCube games, although SmackDown!: Here Comes The Pain and Day of Reckoning 1 come pretty close.

Anyway, hope you enjoy my review and be sure to vote for your favorite game here:
