Games Played in 2010

December 31, 2010

My “Games Completed” list this year is quite good.  Part of that is that my total number of games played is inversely proportional to the amount of time I play World of Warcraft.  Meaning I didn’t play much Warcraft this year, so I played a lot of other things.  The other reason is that I really tried to put an emphasis on completing games this year.  I pick up a lot of games and tend to dabble a lot, but I’m easily distracted by the next thing and leave many games hanging.  This year I dabbled less and finished more.  So without further ado…

Papercraft Friday #99: Link & Epona

August 20, 2010

I’ll be posting Papercraft Friday #100 next week, and have been thinking long and hard as to what it should be, since #100 is something of a milestone.  The runner-up choice is this week’s model of Link and Epona from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.  A model of Link seemed an appropriate candidate, given that my 3rd highest trafficked blog post and highest trafficked Papercraft Friday post is a Link model.  More on that next week.  But I came across a model I’d been looking for but had never found that fit well with the site and chose it for next week, so Link is my runner up.

This model of Link and Epona has always been one of my favorites, so I really don’t know why I haven’t featured it before.  Ninjatoes put it out over 2 years ago, but in my opinion it’s still one of the best.

Stay tuned next week for Papercraft Friday #100!

Papercraft Friday #94: SSBB Luigi

July 9, 2010

If it’s still Friday where I’m at, it still counts as a Papercraft Friday post, right??    This one comes in just under the wire.  Did you build the excellent Super Smash Bros Brawl Mario from Papercraft Friday #79, but feel he was still missing something?  TouchFuzzyGetDizzy over at DeviantART, with the help of designer Ignatius, has done it again with a 3D model of Mario’s ever loyal brother Luigi.  He even got a Daily Deviation for it over there!  Grats!  As with Mario, there are no instructions and this model is not for the beginner, but for those who successfully tackled the Mario, this SSBB Luigi model will look great beside it.

Papercraft Friday #91: Nintendo 3DS

June 18, 2010

The hit of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) this year was the announcement of Nintendo’s upcoming handheld offering: the Nintendo 3DS.  While it looks very similar to the Nintendo DS, it sports an upper screen capable of displaying 3D images to the naked eye without the need for 3D glasses.  Gaming skeptics who saw it firsthand were won over by how good the effect is.  It also has two outward-facing cameras for taking 3D photos.

Paperkraft.net is all over it this week, releasing a paper model version of the Nintendo 3DS.  It might not power on and play games, but it’s definitely 3D.

Note: Modelers should not experience any optical or physical discomfort when building this 3D model.  If you do feel any eye or head aches, queasiness, or any other discomfort, you should cease building this model right away.  It may be too hardcore for you.

E3 2010 Nintendo Media Briefing Live Thoughts

June 15, 2010

Okay, here we go with Nintendo’s press conference:

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
– Lots of time showing Zelda control. Uses Wii MotionPlus.
– Some control issues. Stage issue or game issue?
– Looks fun. Lots of items to use.
– Not coming out until “next year”

Mario Sports Mix
– The Mario sports franchises have been pretty silent the last few years, so I’m not surprised.

Just Dance 2
– Dance games are the new music game genre this year.
– Doesn’t pick up full body moves like Kinect.  But that might mean it’s not as hard.

Wii Game Soundtrack Sadness

May 25, 2010

Long time readers will no doubt be familiar with my love of video game music soundtracks, especially of the free variety.  Joystiq posted a story today about the cancellation of Wii horror game Sadness.  It was in development hell for years, rumored even to be vaporware, and finally canceled.  This was confirmed last month by the game’s musical composer, Arkadiusz Reikowskiego, who released the music tracks on his blog for download.  So to alleviate your sadness at the cancellation of the game, enjoy the work-in-progress Sadness soundtrack for free!
