Retro Diary #84 – “I’m great at this game!” *Crashes and loses wheels*

Sunday, February 4th, 2018

On Tuesday, I played some WWE 2K18 with my brother, and lost all matches… it’s getting really frustrating now!


On Thursday, I went to meet up with a friend at Geek Retreat, and we playes some SNES and N64 games.

If I recall correctly, we played some Super Mario All Stars, Street Fighter 2, Killer Instinct, Donkey Kong Country and Starwing on the SNES.

On The Nintendo 64 We played WWF No Mercy, Where we made The Coach, of all wresting personalities, Twisted Edge Snowboarding, which didn’t haave much to it and was mediocre, but was very 90s!

Finally, we played F1 Grand Prix, which was frustrating at first, but we got used to it, and had a blast. I found out that this friend of mind has a fascination with F1 and it’s video games, and seemed very knowledgeable on the subject!

He tried (Well, he didn’t try, he was just bad!) to bash the car as much as he could, and actually lost 2 wheels and front wing!

When I got home, I played some games of WWE 2k18 with my brother, and I finally got the hang of the game and how to work around it’s issues, and finally managed to beat him! …once.


On Friday, my physical copy of Undertale finally arrrived!!!

Retro Pick-Ups – Christmas 2017 edition

Monday, December 25th, 2017

Today, for Christmas, I got 3 games, and a Polaroid camera to take photos with!

2 games I expected, because I asked for them, but the 3rd, Sonic Forces, was a pleasant surprise!

I absolutely loved Sonic Generations, so seeing as this is a sequel, this troo should be a treat!

The middle game, AER, is surprisingly DRM-free, no Steam or anything required! Yas!

Dishonored 2, I only got because it was on sale at GAME. I don’t expect much from this, the disc itself supposedly only contains 5GB of data, and you need to download like 30GB to play it! Gaming is so screwed up these days…

My brother got Destiny 2 a download code for a Pac-Man game on PS4, and my other brother got WWE 2k18, also on the PS4. So not the worst Christmas ever! =)

I also got the special edition Titanfall 2 strategy guide… yay.

UPDATE: I got back from a visit to my gran’s to meet with my cousins to do our yearly Secret Santa, and my cousin got me as a Secret Santa and got me some games!

Retro Diary #81

Sunday, December 17th, 2017

Last Sunday, I finished FIFA 17’s Journey mode, now onto FIFA 18’s!


On Wednesday, I went to a meetup at the Geek Retreat, and there was a setup for a new card game called “Lightseekers”, and it was really fun! It was really simple to understand!

I was talking to this couple at the meetup, while watching someone play Prototype on PS3… I have no idea why I remember that…

We were talking about Anime, Manga and Video Games. It was good!


On Saturday, I went to a meetup with the same group as last week, but this time, it was to a bar called “Super Barios” and it was like a wet dream for me! They had authentic 90s arcades! They had some Neo Geo games, House of the Dead, Sega Rally and Ridge Racer! I played those a heck of a load of times!

I tried out a Simpons Pinball cabinet, and I was blown away! It was a lot of fun, and trippy with all the lights! I’ll definitely be playing more pinball games!

 

Retro Diary #77

Sunday, August 13th, 2017

So on Thursday, it was my birthday, and I planned to go with some friends to the cinema to see Cars 3. Only one friend turned up, I’m not going to jump to conclusions as to why the others showed up.

Anyway, we met up,We watched someone play Super Mario 3D world at MEGABytes, and then we went and saw the film. I enjoyed it, you can see my thoughts on the film in this article.


On Friday, I went to the MEGABytes café, and played some PS1 games. The first was No Onbe can stop Mr. Domino, it was a fairly fun game, although it got really frustrating a couple of levels in.

I then played some Dead or Alive 1. I’ve never played the first game before, and it’s a typical 90s fighter from the time. There’s really not much to say here other than outside the main area are full of explosives, seemingly, if a player falls in this area, the ground blows up, propelling them into the air.

This was also before they started using the gimmick of bouncing tits, so the game was just bland in general. Fun, yeah, but bland, in my opinion.

Afterwards, I visited GAME at St. Enochs, and found that they have eliminated their PC stock, even their digital code cards are gone minus some Sims 4 ones… it’s happening… =(


On Saturday, I finally got around to playing Watch Dogs 2… and I’m addicted! I’ve already lost several hours because the game!

Gameplay-wise, it feels like Watch Dogs 1, but with better car physics, but seeing as I loved the first game, that’s a good thing!

 

Retro Diary #76 – Back Home!

Sunday, August 6th, 2017

I’m back!

On Sunday, I met up with an old friend at a retro gaming cafe, where I played Bugs Bunny: Lost in Time on the PS1 for a few hours.

It’s actually a really good game. It fits the theme of the show perfectly, it has some great platforming elements to it! The only major flaw I found was that the controls can be very frustrating! The right analog stick does nothing. You have to use the L2 and R2 buttons to look around. Also, R1 is the action button…

Other than that, it’s a very good game, and I definitely see myself getting it when I can afford it!

After that, me and this friend went to get dinner where we talked about all sorts of things game related!

After that, we went home.


On Monday, I was talking to a friend online (for a good few hours, I might add!), and we takes about the Tony Hawk games for a bit (because she saw Underground 2 on PS2 for sale at a shop and was thinking of getting it), and how she played one of the games years ago, but can’t remember which, I helper her identify that it was Project 8.

While chatting to her, I found my old PS2 keyring, which broke off ages ago!


On Tuesday, another friend called me for a little chat, and asked how many PC games I had (I guess just to create conversation), and since I’ve lost count, I decided to just take some photos of my collection and sent them to him instead!

I’ve decided to share them here as well!


Retro Diary #71

Sunday, June 18th, 2017

On Sunday, I set the PS2 back up for my brother, who decided to play through Tony Hawk’s Underground multiple times to unlock all of the decks. He isn’t too happy about having to do it, but he’s doing it anyway, he’s dedicated, I’ll give him that!


On Monday, my brother started to create his story on Tony Hawk’s Underground and I played some Shaun Palmer’s Pro Snowboarder… which is kind of meh…


On Tuesday, A tried my hand at modding THUG Pro and adding my own models, A tried adding the Klonoa model, I followed this tutorial on how to rig models.

It turned into a disaster. I got the model imported in the game, but the rigging (meaning how the character moves in animation) was way off, and was very glitchy, and I couldn’t to save my life fix it.

I gave up and just imported my created Klonoa skater from THUG2 into THUG Pro, and that worked.

A few people have recognised the character, surprisingly, I didn’t expect anyone to, the Klonoa games are pretty rare, and kind of came and went, so that’s cool!

My Brother came in telling me his plans for the THUG story, and plans to create braching storylines, some of which rely on which sponsor you pick in the story, that souinds really cool. That’s something the actuial story mode doesn’t have


So on Wednesday, I’ve been playing around in THUG Pro online matches, and people have started to notice, and point out that my combos are reptitive, something I didn’t even realise.

It made me so embarassed that I haven’t played an online game since…


On Saturday, my brother, my sister and I played a Catchphrase card game my sister bought a day or so prior.

It’s a 3+ player game, one player is the host and the rest play against each-other.

My sister was the host so it was me vs my brother.

It was fun, though we struggled a lot with a couple of the catchphrases.

This is why I’m losing interest in video games…

It’s things that this that really tick me off!

I believe it’s the consumers right to mod what they buy. As long as they don’t resell it. (Even then, I’d say a very limited number of copies is still okay)

However, that would be me caring for the consumers, and proposing that I don’t have control over something, and that is unacceptable in the industry!

I think they’re going to singlehandedly kill off the entire PC community by doing this, maybe not immediately, but in the long run, like any other games, people will lost interest.

but that’s okay with the, because that would mean they’d have interest in forking over money for a new game!

How long have Take Two sunken from making mods acceptable in San Andreas, to outright outlawing them entirely in GTA V!

“Is it because of the Hot Cofee Incident?”, I have my doubts, because 1: That was over 10 years ago, and 2: Hot Cofee, with Rockstar’s fault, they added it then, but then hid it, modder simply uncovered it…

From the point of view from an indie developer, I love the idea of modding. The lifespan of my original Rossies game was extended thanks to it being open source, and other people making mods and even total conversions of the game! I was seeing new content based on something I created it. I planted the seed to a then-growing community!

It’s that that makes me commited to make all my games open source, communities are a good thing! Maybe not finantially, but… well, fananical is all that matters to corporations, I forgot.

So my closeing words are: Fuck you Take Two!

Have a nice day!
