Phoenix Wright: Ace Finale!

As I recently made known over on Virtual Bastion, my time with the famed Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney came to a thrilling close. In my wrap-up post on the game, I offer up some final thoughts on what it was like to tackle not only this game but my first visual novel game. No objections here; Ace Attorney was one hell of a crazy fun ride!

VIRTUAL BASTION

Well, it’s been awhile, hasn’t it? Believe it or not, and despite all things Mass Effect: Andromeda, I have been slooooowly winding my way through the final chapter of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, a game that I picked up on a whim a few months back. And I’m pleased to report that I made it through! Yes, I literally rose from the ashes in “Rise from the Ashes,” the game’s final chapter. And wow, what a finale it was! I don’t know how I’m going to put my experience with this trial into words, but I’m already typing, so here goes…and spoilers ahead!

Ac!d Commander: Evading enemies in Ebro Tower

This is my new game project: “Ac!d Commander.” It involves Metal Gear Ac!d for the PSP. Rather than being in written form, I decided to do an actual Let’s Play, making videos and everything. I’ll be posting one to three new videos every Friday from today until the game is over. I welcome any comments and discussion. Apologies in advance for any audio hiccups, video malfunctions, or other jackassery, which will surely ensue.

This nostalgia trip was brought to you by the letter “c” for “cereal” and “cartoons”

At the beginning of “Breakfast Club,” rapper Murs alludes to the notion that we should all be able to relate to the following childhood memory: waking up on Saturday morning, grabbing a big bowl of sugary cereal, and watching cartoons.

Sounds pretty sweet, right? If that’s how you remember your childhood, then bully, just bully! I, for one, harbored a very similar routine, only sans the sugary cereal.

You remember the whole “anti-dentite” routine from Seinfeld? Well my folks were “anti-sucrose-ites.”

Yoshi’s Woolly World, and a life exhausted (and dusty)

For the past several months, I’ve been posting portions of my let’s play of Yoshi’s Woolly World to Virtual Bastion’s (formerly United We Game’s) YouTube channel. And now, it’s almost over! Yes, all good things must come to an end, as they say, and so too must Yoshi’s Woolly World.

Granted, the game hasn’t exactly been at the forefront of all things Nintendo over the past few months (let alone…years. The game came out in 2015. And even the recent Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World from the 3DS didn’t help much.), but I’ve still had a great time sharing. Not including the video above, there are only three more left. You can catch up with all the past ones on my Gaming Videos page.


Speaking of videos…let’s chat for a sec. Continue reading “Yoshi’s Woolly World, and a life exhausted (and dusty)”

Ac!d Commander: Snake works better alone, anyway

This is my new game project: “Ac!d Commander.” It involves Metal Gear Ac!d for the PSP. Rather than being in written form, I decided to do an actual Let’s Play, making videos and everything. I’ll be posting one to three new videos every Friday from today until the game is over. I welcome any comments and discussion. Apologies in advance for any audio hiccups, video malfunctions, or other jackassery, which will surely ensue.


What a week! (I say that both the rhetorical sense and in the omfg-I’m-so-glad-it’s-Friday sense.) I’ve got two, yes two Ac!d Commander episodes up and ready for eyeballs one and all. Last time round Snake discovered that Teliko was a big fat liar who was only after Pythagoras the whole time. With her betrayal out of the way, now Snake is back on his own again, ready to get all stealthy and infitrate-y and shit. Onward to Ebro Tower! (By way of another minefield. Always with the minefields.)

Five on Shuffle, #4

Welcome to my new monthly series called “Five on Shuffle” where I attempt to reconnect with my iPod by using it regularly throughout the year and using it only and continuously on “shuffle.” Once a month I’m going to stop at a completely random interval, snap photos of five songs in a row, and then post and write about them here. The writing may be heavy or light, depending on whether or not I’ve anything remotely clever to say about any given song in the moment.

Mass Effect: Andromeda — Screenshot Theater

When life gets busy, there’s nothing like a good ol’ screenshot gallery, amirite?

Wait, what?

Nothing. Never mind. It’s just that I made this super quick Mass Effect: Andromeda screenshot theater video for Virtual Bastion’s YouTube channel, and you should totally check it out. Totally.

VIRTUAL BASTION

Being over three weeks old now, Mass Effect: Andromeda feels a little like old news. Most people I know who have it have already completed at least one playthrough. Speedy hares they are! I, on the other hand, am the tortoise in this gaming race — slow and steady. And yes, this is a fancy way of saying that I haven’t made much progress in the game since my first impressions post. (sigh)

Ac!d Commander: And Now…the Big Twist! (GASP!)

This is my new game project: “Ac!d Commander.” It involves Metal Gear Ac!d for the PSP. Rather than being in written form, I decided to do an actual Let’s Play, making videos and everything. I’ll be posting one to three new videos every Friday from today until the game is over. I welcome any comments and discussion.

One video this week, but it’s got one of those “holy shit!” moments. (As if this game wasn’t full of them already…) And it’s a great one. Trust me, you’ll wanna watch.

(By the way, it’s not one where I fuck up and die…that’s par for the course.)
