Hello again erbody !
So truth be told, drawing isn't the only thing that's kept me side tracked lately.
As you may know, i'm a bit of a video game nerd, and my fandom has been loyal to Nintendo for as long as i can remember :).
These days i've been hooked on... i'd say Three games, Madworld (for the Wii), Pokemon Platinum and Rhythm Heaven ( for the DS )
I'll start with Madworld !
HOLY S**T is this game AWSOME !! Don't worry about this pic above, it's the only decent box art pic i could find, because this game is an M-Rated game all the way !
I beleive this is what people who keep complaining about nintendo have been asking for. This game Oozes some incredible style and some bloody, gory and hilarious gameplay.
Gotta say that there's nothing less to expect from a bad ass chainsaw prostetic arm having main character named Jack.
The story in the game makes sense and you'd be surprised at how deep and interesting it can be. Without giving away spoilers, Varrigan City has been attacked by terrorist who have blocked off all the exits to the city trapping everyone there. They also released a virus in the air that's poisoned everyone in Varrigan city, and they'll only get the antidote if they kill and survive. Thus begins DeathWatch and the Madness that is... Well... Madworld !
And of course, i wouldn't be posting this here if i didn't mention that i find Jack surprisingly Hot !
I swear that i tried not to drool at some of the cut scenes, being an artist makes you notice such things, like his big burly chest, strong arms and tight pants and... erm, well ... you get the picture.
heh, don't be shocked if you see some slash of this guy curtesy of moi in the future.
Moving on to the DS and starting with Platinum
Being a Nintendo fan, it should come as no suprise that this is on my recent addictions list. Pokemon has got the be Nintendo's best and strongest worldwide money making gem, and i know why. Even thought it's unfortunaly hard to explain, pokemon is one the deepest and most heavily strategy based RPGs out there, period. It's not all about some annoying little mouse ! trust me !!
If you've never played a pokemon game, and have always wondered what all the fuss is about, you should pic this one up, others like me who already do will still and probably already have picked this one up.
Since this is way better then it's predecessors by comparison, i'm really enjoy this game, and i have to give kudos to this great Speech that Cynthia gave in the game ( when you reach to the reverse world you'll know what i'm talking about ). And it's also the reason i've been inspired to draw human-mon again : )
And finally we arrive to Rhythm Heaven
O my EFFING GOD, i am addicted to this game ! i don't think i've ever played a game with simpler controls that's been so hooking and challenging.
Being the same team behind WarioWare, it's no surprise that this game has some cute and quirky style and charm, but don't let that fool you, this game won't go easy on you when you go off the beats.
the somewhat daunting difficulty aside, you' ll have a blast playing this game when you get the hang of it !
My favourite music game of Rhythm Heaven is Blue Birds hands down. If there's one thing you should really beware of is this game infectious beats that you'll be humming in your head long after you've powered off your DS. I swear to you, i went to beach last Sunday and kept singing " Stretch out you NECK ! " as i swam, which actually felt like it was boosting my strenght ! LOL !
Tap, Tap and hold, and Flick, that's the only three things you'll be doing in this game, following the beats and keeping the rhythm is where the really fun starts.
Pick this one up and devote yourself to it, and you'll find out why i can't stop saying " Peck you beak !" and "Stretch out your NECK ! " at least 20 times a day.
I Also recently bought i DSi , which i love !! (especially since i got it on April 3rd before the US release date, aaaaahhhh, nationalities and connections... heh )
So yea ! insperation, ideas and good vibes come from these addictions, who ever said there was no connection between side-tracked and on-track ?
