Holding out for a hero

Sunday, February 12, 2012 at 11:26 pm Comments (4)

It’s been a long time since I’ve talked about Metal Slug, hasn’t it?
A couple of days ago a Korean fellow emailed me with some pretty juicy material found in Metal Slug 5 – we’re talking unused areas, blocked-off alternate paths and totally unique backgrounds!

Seriously, check this out. Those cogs apparently exist at the bottom of the Mission 5 fight against the elephant tower machines, would you believe it? And if anyone has ever survived my terribly written coverage of the early video previews of the game, you might recognise that screen on the right as appearing in one of the videos as an intro to one of the areas – but in-game you start just past it. It’s still there, it’s just off-screen, evidently!

Soupy twist

I spent New Years Eve watching the 2009 Sherlock Holmes with the folks, and just so happened to get invited to see the sequel with my uncle on New Years Day. I can’t really say much, it’s about what you’d expect if you saw the first one – the same kind of romping around, the same kind of banter. Not bad, not fantastic, just on par with the first one. If you didn’t like the first one, it won’t change your mind.

I was looking forward to seeing Stephen Fry as Mycroft Holmes, but I was a bit disappointed – partly because Mycroft doesn’t have much screen time and doesn’t actually do much (true to the character, I suppose), and partly because, well, it’s hard to actually see Stephen Fry as a character. I can suspend my disbelief for everyone else – Robert Downey Jr. is Sherlock Holmes! Jude Law is Dr. Watson! Stephen Fry is… Stephen Fry wearing a hat, or Stephen Fry in period dress or something.

Snow him so well

So, Christmas has come and gone, December’s coming to a close, the new year’s approaching, and I’ve been so much of a self-absorbed shithead that I’ve barely even noticed. Story of my life! In my defence, Jingle All The Way was not shown once on television, so what’s the point of caring? Instead they showed things like My Neighbour Totoro. Are they actually trying to bring some class to the festive season? Get outta town!

The annual get-together was pretty bog-standard, and I got two calendars and a box of Rolo. Hell yeah.

Get your pixels ready!

Quite proud of these. The scale gives me a headache, though – you wouldn’t believe how much grief I had over the size of Splash Woman’s head.

Tech Rally Water Guard

Friday, September 16, 2011 at 2:31 pm Comments Off on Tech Rally Water Guard

Some new Games I Own reviews are up on the site. They’re not of games that are frighteningly terrible, so you’ll have to look for hyperbolic remarks elsewhere, I’m afraid. I’d planned to have a few other updates to the music page and some of the shrines, but I just don’t have the time, to be frank – I’m occupied during the week and then I’m totally drained during the weekend.

I’ve been playing a really unnecessary amount of Pokémon Rumble lately. It’s… it’s an odd game to pinpoint why I’m still playing it. It’s fast-paced and has you in direct control of your creature, so it ditches the turn-based battle system that I just don’t have the patience for. But at the same time, it simplifies the game so much that it’s hardly even a Pokémon game.

Madsen Attacked!

I’ve been playing a lot of 24: The Game lately. I never really followed the show nor did I see it as the best damn thing to grace television since sliced bread (it is a little known fact that in 1964 sliced bread staged a takeover of all known television stations in Ukraine, and people hailed it as the best television ever), but I quite enjoyed what I watched of season 3. My brother, being a big fan back then, bought this game before I even had a PS2, and it’s actually not a bad little package. The gameplay offers no unique surprises, but it captures the atmosphere of the TV show frighteningly well – the movie scenes genuinely look like scenes from the actual show, recreated with PS2-quality 3D models! If that’s not a selling point, I don’t know what is.

But I’m not here to waffle about the game, though (I’ll probably review it the next time I update Games I Own, Like & Hate) – I’m here to talk about a glitch.
