Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time

Now that I have a Wii, I’ve been downloading old Nintendo games. The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time, what a great game. Spiller and I played this all through sophomore year of college, between classes and parties. We could never find the triforce though!!

Update: fixed spelling and added link to Spiller’s MySpace

Game On!


Game On!

Originally uploaded by ScaleOvenStove.

Well, I finally got a Nintendo Wii. I played a ton of tennis tonight, and some baseball and bowling. Downloaded Super Mario Bros. and Zelda on the SNES. I like the other parts of the Wii too, the Weather, News and just the menu design, etc. A good addition to my Xbox 360. Now I just need another controller and a tennis partner!

When does 687,300 = 1 Million?

When Sony says it does. They are losing, and they know it. If you know me, you know I despise Sony. DRM/Rootkit? No problem! Every product we make only work good with other products we make and nothing else? Heck yeah! The only way I will ever buy a Sony product again is if I get it for free or win it, which then I guess I won’t be really buying it.

Nintendo Wii

Wow, well, I finally got a few chances to play Nintendo Wii yesterday. Someone at work brought one in an hooked it up, and then last night a buddy has one hooked up at his house. I’d have to say the I for sure want one. Thing is, playing it, it was hooked up to projectors, which is even better. So I might need to get one of those too 🙂

Played Wii Sports – Baseball, Tennis, Bowling, Boxing. Also played Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz – but I didnt really get into it, it is tough trying to move your arm compared to how I am used to playing it.

Also, probably the best side effect is that, you get a workout~! Nintendo really came out with something that anyone can play as well. I can’t wait to get one.

Oblivion: My First 1000 Point Achievement Game!

So, finally, after like 7 months of playing on and off, I finally have at least one game on Xbox360 with 1000 achievement points completed. Oblivion! Im only on level 25 – and there are some quests I havent completed yet, but still feels good. After I got 1000, I went and bought all the add-ons as well, there are like 3-4 add ons that give you some new quests. I think I was at about 101 hours into the game, dang. I’d have to say, it is a very addicting game. Also started Star Wars Legos II last night a little bit – which is another good game. I see myself at least getting my moneys worth out of my 360, so that is good 🙂

Oblivion – Beat the Main Quest

Well, last night I beat the main quest on Oblivion – The Elder Scrolls. I’m a dark elf, level 21. Im about 80 hours dumped into the game, and I am sure there is a ton more I can do, I still have to finish off the fighters and theives guilds, and some other quests. I would have to say, it is one of the best games I have ever played, if not the best. It is like a suped up LORD – that I used to play like 15 years ago on my 2400 baud modem on BBS’s. The thing is, I could beat all the quests, and start over as a different player, and choose a totally different route, which kind of reminds me of the “Choose Your Own Adventure” books I used to read as kid (Indiana Jones mostly). I can’t wait for the next incarnation of the game to come out (if it even is, I am not sure). Where is everyone else who plays it? Seems that everyone I talk to either hates it, doesn’t play it, or is totally in love with it.

Cooperative Gaming

I think one of the best innovations in gaming throughout the years is cooperative gaming. Starting back with Contra for the NES, and recently, Halo for the Xbox, cooperative gaming is just plain fun.

X-men Legends is another fun one, and Star Wars Lego’s. Co-op games are just fun to sit down with friends and play together, you can actually be a “team” and play together. Games like X-men Legends, four people can play together, great times.

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty

Well, I finally beat MGS2, I have had the game for a few years, but never played it. A couple weeks ago I decided to give it a go, and finally beat it this afternoon. Took 15 hours. I only played on the “Normal” settings, but it still wasn’t a walk in the park. I remember playing MGS on PSOne back in the day, great game.

I think I will have to go out and buy MGS3: Snake Eater now!
