I think I’m going to have to take a brief hiatus from games updates for a bit. I feel kind of bad taking a break like this, but things have gotten pretty serious in terms of my grad thesis work.
In other words, this is it. The final crunch before I finally graduate. Gotta finish up the last bits of research work and write my paper. I honestly don’t see me having much time at all to work on the game during this time. And it has been leading up to this. The last few updates have been pretty lackluster to say the least, and they’re probably not going to improve any time soon.
Right now it looks like the break’s going run until the end of March. Sorry about this, but graduating from grad school kind of takes precedent in this situation. If possible, I’ll try to post a thing or two should I find the time.
6: A game that’s changed you the most?
-Hmmm, I don’t know if it’s changed me the most, but I’ve always put on a pedestal the WarioLand games. A lot of Wario’s transformations end up being clever solutions to obstacles in your way. I guess they aren’t the most groundbreaking games compared to what you’re seeing today, but as a kid I thought they were the greatest things ever.
If you are looking for something a bit more recent, I figure I could also say Tower of Heaven, which is a brilliant little game where you climb to the top of a tower and follow the rules set by a god. In its simplest form it is a platforming game, but there are some great twists like a rule barring you from moving to the left. I was really impressed by that game!
17: What game do you never tell people you play?
-For a while I had a crippling addiction to the app game Flow Free. It’s a really simple game where you just draw lines between dots without overlaps. The dang game has hundreds of levels, and you can get through one in like 30 secs. It’s pretty easy to shoot through a bunch of them and loose 15 minutes.
I lost a ton of time with that game. :T
27: Has there ever been a moment that has made you cry?
-Not particularly! There have been games that have blown my mind (take the climax in 999) but I can’t say there’s been a particular game that has made me cry.
8: Best soundtrack?
- It’s going to be a toss up between the soundtracks for Bastion and Shadows of the Colossus. D-don’t make me choose!
9: A game you turn your volume off every time you play it?
-Honestly I haven’t encountered a game where I’ve needed to do that. Heh, I guess that makes me lucky.
4: Worst game you’ve ever played?
5: A popular series/game you just can’t get into no matter how much you try?
-Hrmmm, I guess traditional fighting games. Like I can totally get into Super Smash Bros, but I’ve tried to pick up more traditional fighters and I’ve failed spectacularly.
16: Character you’ve hated most? From what game?
-Man, that’s a tough call. I don’t really have anyone I really hate that much but I guess if I have to pick someone, well probably Chip from Sonic Unleashed.
Yeeeeaaahhh he kind of sucked and was super annoying. He primarily existed to fill the role of the chipper (ha, pun) sidekick. Also some story stuff, but they still could have designed this guy way better.
23: Biggest disappointment you’ve had in gaming?
-Er, I hate to admit this buuuuuuttt…
…this actually that wasn’t a great game. >_<;;; Like I usually love the Paper Mario series, but this was kind of tough to play. Story was fantastic as always, but combat wasn’t that polished. Especially with the boss battles, which sometimes expected you to have a certain sticker without any warning beforehand.
(Dang it Chump you know how hard it is for me to hate stuff; this was tough to write up, ha)
