Hey! I like Greninja, too! :D

It’s time to wrap up the Third Party Review Fest by topping it all off with the most memorable and most recognizable arcade icon, Pac Man, which gained a lot of popularity and led Namco to become the first third party company to support Nintendo. But first, one last backstory.

In April 1979, the game was developed by a young Namco employee named Toru Iwatani over the course of a year, while employing a nine man team. It was based on a concept of eating, and the original Japanese title was known as Pakkuman (or, パックマン), which was mostly inspired by the Japanese onomatopoeic slang phrase called Paku-Paku Taberu (or, パクパク食べる, again), where “paku-paku” describes the sound of the mouth movement when widely opened and then closed in succession.

After one slice of pepperoni pizza was taken out, it resembles a character that is eating something. And Pac Man was born! Let’s start off some gameplay.

In the original Pac Man, the goal is simple. You must follow the correct cherry pattern in order to avoid Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde as the Ghost Gang. By making your way through the only maze shown here, you pick up a power pellet and then eat the Ghost Gang. Eating them will earn you points when they’re regular blue. But eating them when they’re normal will make you lose a life, so be careful. The strawberry pattern has a different one, but being swapped, and the peach pattern has another pattern, which will take longer until you reach to the killscreen.

Although Pac Man was indeed a success, it had spawn crossovers, 3D platforming, spin offs, cartoon shows, and everything else we’ve seen Pac Man do a lot of times. I give it 10 out of 10 as the best arcade experience ever.

Oh, and there will also exist Pac Man: Chomp Mania, an awesome looking arcade game where you either win tickets or a gift card, depending on the machine. I recommend on playing that. ;)

And that wraps up the review of the Third Party Review Fest. Thanks for reading, and have a good night. :)

Ever since Sonic had returned from a request by a “certain someone”, it was one of the most memorable pieces ever been known for Smash. Speaking of, Sonic 2 was a memorable piece, too! So we’re gonna dive right in and review the best selling game to date. But first! A very special history.

Following the release of the first installment, Sonic creator Yuji Naka quit SEGA due to disagreements with several of the companies’ corporate policies. One year later, Mark Cerny, head president of SEGA Technical Institute, met Naka in Japan and offered him another chance to get more money in order to work at STI. He then agreed, and Hirokazu Yasuhara, who was a lead level designer for Sonic, also moved in to STI as well. After discussions about founding Sonic Team and the problems with the Gulf War, the development of Sonic 2 began in November 1991. When the demo was introduced, it featured new features, like a special stage (which we’ll get to that in just a moment) and a new character named Tails, who was also known as Miles Prower (a pun on miles per hour). The game, before being finished, was going to be ported onto the Mega CD, but it was later scrapped when it comes to Mega Drive. After the game was completed and released, it became a best seller. How good is Sonic 2? Let’s find out! :D

At the beginning, you start off as Sonic and Tails in Emerald Hill Zone. You collect rings as health and attack Badniks by freeing them with a spin dash or jumping. For fifty rings, you find a checkpoint which will take you to a special 3D stage where you collect rings and avoid obstacles. Once you have the corresponding rings at hand, you earn a chaos emerald. Collect all seven and you’ll become Super Sonic! For one hundred to two hundred, you get two extra lives. But if you input a debug mode (which we’ll get to that one as soon as possible), you’ll give Tails up to 999 rings, which will make you feel unstoppable!

Throughout every second zone, you’ll encounter Robotnik in each zone. It’s much like Sonic Advance, but with a completely new twist. You jump on his head eight times and you save all the animals from the Egg Capsule. But in the final zone, you hit him in the head with 12, after you hit Metal Sonic with eight.

Now, let’s talk about cheat codes. In order to utilize Zone Select, you type in 19, 65, 09, 17, press start, then hold Button A and press start again, and you’ll be in the Zone Select screen. Once you’ve made it, you can do the other two cheats that are useful. For having all emeralds at hand, you type in 04, 01, 02, and 06 and you’ll hear a chime. This means you have all emeralds at your side and you can enable it by collecting 50 without having to go to special stages with frustration. For Debug Mode, you type in 01, 09, 09, 02, 01, 02 and 04 and a ring sound will appear, meaning that you can enable debug mode. While in debug mode, you can change Sonic or Tails into a sprite by pressing Button B. Then, you can press Button A to choose any kind of sprite you want to put, and press Button C to place it there. You can also press both Buttons A and C for backwards. Oh, and I would highly recommend on using Sonic AND Tails to place a ring on Tails and give him up to 999 rings, which I’ve mentioned earlier. :)

Overall, this game is so addicting, you don’t wanna stop playing over and over again. I give it 11 out of 10 for being an outstanding performance! :D

Tomorrow is the last review of Pac Man, the third and final third party related game being shown during the Hyrule Warriors launch party. :)

Alright. Since that we’re only a couple more days away from the Hyrule Warriors launch party at the Nintendo World Store, and only one and a half week until the release of Smash Bros. for 3DS, I’m gonna be doing some short reviews about third party related games, starting off with Mega Man 2. Now, if you aren’t familiar about this game, lemme give you a quick backstory:

The game was developed and published by Capcom on the Family Computer system. In retrospect, series creator and producer, Keiji Inafune, who was known as Inafking in the end credits, described its development as a “rogue effort”, ever since that the first Mega Man game was unsuccessful at the time. This led the team at Capcom to provide a new sequel and, after Mega Man 2 became a best selling Family Computer game of all time and from all of the debugging and errors being sorted out, the series became a well known franchise hit. So, how good IS Mega Man 2? Is it worth it? Let’s check out the gameplay footage and take a short review on it. :)

At the beginning of the game, you’ll get a chance to select any of the Robot Masters created by Dr. Wily himself. In order to stop him, you need to put an end to all eight robot masters that are shown in the menu. Taken from the MMKB web article, you have Metal Man with Metal Blade, Air Man with Air Shooter, Bubble Man with Bubble Lead, Quick Man with Quick Boomerang, Crash Man with Crash Bomber, Flash Man with Time Stopper, Heat Man with Atomic Fire, and Wood Man with Leaf Shield. Each one of them represents a secret power that you can use to finish off the bosses with attacks being shown on the website. When you equip with items that you’ve gotten on your adventures, you’ll receive a few messages from Dr. Light himself, which he will respond as this, “Item # completed! Get your weapons ready.” After all bosses are completed, it’s time for the main event: Wily Castle!

Inside, you’ll maneuver onto six stages. The first stage will involve Mecha Dragon, as you try to jump over blocks and use either Atomic Fire or Quick Boomerang to finish him off. The second involves Picopico-kun, where it will remove itself from walls, a ceiling and the floor and attack you unless you attack it with either Bubble Lead or Metal Blade. The third involves a Guts Tank, where you can jump on his wheels and quickly use either Quick Boomerang or Atomic Fire. The fourth is Boobeam Trap, where deadly lasers come and kill you without caution, unless you have Crash Bomber to detonate all the lasers. The fifth is the Mandatory Boss Rush stage, where you must use all of your equipped items to defeat them that were shown back in the original stage select zone. Once all bosses are completed, the Wily Machine appears, but this time, it takes on two forms. The first allows you to use Atomic Fire, while the second lets you use Crash Bomber. Wily runs away and awaits you in the underground level, where the final battle commences. The final stage allows you to use Bubble Lead to kill the Alien while avoiding its deadly shooting lasers. Once you’ve destroyed it, you’ve saved the world!

Overall, the game may look too addicting, but it’s hard as life itself. I give this game 9/10 for the best gameplay, music and other special things. If you’re a hardcore fan, then Mega Man 2 is the one for you! ;)

Tomorrow is Sonic 2, and Friday is Pac Man. Stay tuned for more!

The First (and Fun) Day of Fall

Well, summer’s finally over, and Fall has arrived. Just in time for me to get some coziness until the holidays come along!

However, I did something very important during my time with my cousin. Remember that adorable video about Bowser Jr., Joseph (Koopa Troopa), Cody (Kamek) and Toad all went to Toys “R” Us to get a some toys and to Chuck’s to eat some pizza? Well, we did a similar vein instead. So, since that his Mom was so happy to give me fourty bucks while she was away, we stopped by at Toys “R” Us as our first destination.

Meh. It may look too old, but it didn’t matter to me, anyway.

I did found this awesome looking Mega Man comic while looking around at other comics. But unfortunately, they don’t have Sonic in stock, nor do they have the Super Smash Variants. But still, it was a good buy. :)

Oh, and in case you haven’t noticed…

Toys “R” Us saved my life. How exactly did they do that? Here’s the main rundown: they’re offering a special pre order bonus that represents a choice of two tubs of lard with Mega Evolutions. Plus, they’re imported from the Pokemon Center. Don’t know who they are? Here are a couple of clues: Smash Bros. and standalone character. ;)

"Yo, Daniel! Where we goin’?"

"To Chuck’s."


And after we found out that it opens at 11 AM (based on the time via its website), we went inside. We never actually made it back for a very long time, but we’re coming back for more!

Once we went inside, we got the pizza (and the wings), as well as Pepsi drinks, too. And I gotta say, the pizza was superb! I dunno how Chuck has done so far, but it’s too tasty.

And his cover of Safe & Sound by Capital Cities was really awesome! I even got the original on my 3DS XL instead. :O

Om nom nom nom nom nom nom nom nom nom… Delicioso! ^o^

Wait. What?! :O

The first game I tried out after finishing up my individual pizza is Stack It. It’s kind of like Stacker, but unlike the main series, it utilizes tickets instead of prizes. I tried one, and it was too hard to get the jackpot. Ugh… I need to find something to practice with. -_-

Next up is SEGA Racing Classic. Probably it’s because it’s one of the most hardest games ever, but pretty addicting, to say the least. And, it’s technically a remake of Daytona USA. Where were you in 1994 when it first came out? :)

Then came Temple Run, which is like the original game, but as a ticket dispensing game itself. I never got around to play the original Temple Run, mainly because I don’t have an iPhone with me, but I did hear that you can use the trackball to control the character. I told my cousin on how to play Temple Run like the original, and I got the chance to play as a secondary explorer. Then he played as a freakin’ football player! How did HE get in there? :O

Well, as soon as we got back home, I got myself a sketched photo of myself from the Sketch Book made by Chuck. And it was totally awesome.

I recommend on going to Chuck’s for the best pizza ever! <3

Now that Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS is coming in about two weeks, I took some time off with my dad at Jack&#8217;s and then to Target and took a snapshot of the most brilliant gem I have ever witnessed. Look at how awesome this is! It&#8217;s a masterpiece like no other. :)
Anywho, I&#8217;ll probably be back this fall for something special. :)

WHY?! WHY?! WHY?!??! >:U

So, anyways, after my cousin and I watched Michael Bay’s TMNT film (which was, eh, alright), I stumbled upon other promotional stuff for the Penguins of Madagascar. But still, I REALLY need to see it! :D



Cool! :D



Megas are fun. <3
