Rediscovering Fighting Games

Recently, I’ve noticed that I’ve been replaying fighting games that I wasn’t originally big on and finding new characters that I like to play as, thereby making the game feel fresh to me. The first game was Tekken Tag Tournament. I got the HD version not too long ago and was disappointed that everything was unlocked from the start for me. What else is there to do when there’s no online mode? However, at random, I picked Kunimitsu and started really enjoying the game as I learned her move set and found it to my liking. I kept playing through Arcade mode over and over just because I enjoyed playing as Kunimitsu and I wanted to play more as her and get better with her fighting style.

Recently, I’ve been wanting to play a Mortal Kombat game since Mortal Kombat X just came out but I don’t have any way to play it. So I’ve been playing Mortal Kombat 3, a game that, again, I wasn’t hugely into back in the day but have found renewed interest in thanks to finding a new character I really liked that I didn’t play before. This time, it was Cyrax and I’ve been getting better and better with him. The other night I beat the game three times with relative ease! I’ve even learn a couple of exploits that lets me beat Motaro and Shao Kahn without dying…much. When I do it right, I beat them no problem but sometimes I screw up so that’s why I keep dying and why I need to practice.

I just thought I would blog about this occurrence because it just goes to show that if a game is really good, it doesn’t matter how old it is. There’s a chance that you can still find something new in it that’ll make it brand new all over again. Do you have any games that you have played before that you found something new about it to like after you revisit it? Tell me in the comments. Peace and Love, Gamers and Players! Colorwind out.

My Gaming Landscape [April 21st, 2015]

MGL

Two weeks and another Gaming Landscape! I’ve had one of those periods where I keep playing different games and not sticking to one. So this is going to be a long one. There’s a few I’m not going to talk about, such as Mega Man X4, which I wrote a review for at MONG, and Super Metroid, which I plan on writing a review for here. Also, I did a few videos on Haunting Starring Polterguy, and a live stream on Sonic Adventure DX. That footage has been deleted since the audio is garbage. On that note, I’m not going to make videos for awhile because I need a new microphone. Alright! That’s enough clean-up and set-up! Let’s get into it.

Discussing: Does Gaming Influence Musical Tastes?

Aside from gaming, I’m very passionate about music. I love a variety of music, from AC/DC to Bruno Mars. I like most if not all genres and I’ll give almost anything a shot. However, I do have my preferences. I tend to like rock more than electronic music. So I’ll take AFI over Lady Gaga any day. However, I’m also aware that this puts me at odds with most music in video games. I noticed this pretty early on. When I was seven or eight years old, I was listening to my parent’s records of Elton John and Rod Stewart and then playing Super Mario World or Street Fighter II with a soundtrack that was consisting of bleeps and bloops.

Countdown: Top 5 Most Anticipated Games of 2015

Countdown Top 5 Anticipated Games

2015 is off to a pretty decent start. I haven’t been able to play every major new release but I’ve played a few smaller games here and there. One of my more anticipated games has actually already come out, Ori and The Blind Forest. Check out the next Gaming Landscape for my final thoughts on that game. However, with the first quarter of the year now behind us and a better idea of what the rest of the year is going to entail, I thought I’d give my top five anticipated games of 2015. These are my own picks, of course, so if you’re most anticipated game isn’t on this list, that’s probably because you aren’t me. With that said, lets talk about some (hopefully) cool games!
