Day 8 - Best soundtrack.

I love the sound of a piano. I love heavy percussion. I love strings.
I love the Halo 3 Soundtrack.

Day 7 - Favorite game couple.

Hmm. This one's tough for me because I don't want to cop out and pick Revan/Bastila or Shepard/Ashley. I guess I'll go with...
Master Chief and Cortana

This particular couple is a little awkward, to be honest. It's like Mario and Peach, to an extent. It's completely platonic yet... it seems like the two really are in love with one another. Here's the thing... Cortana is a computer program.
Even though a romance can never really happen between these two you end up really seeing the love they have for one another by the end of Halo 3. What's most powerful is the sudden tenderness John 117 begins to show Cortana. Here's this guy who was bred to be the perfect killing machine. He's slaughtering hundreds, if not thousands, of living beings and showing no mercy... but the glowing blue chick that's constantly in his head pops up and he just stops. And it feels completely real. It doesn't feel heavy-handed in the least.

Day 6 - Most annoying character.
Fox! Get this guy off me!
 
You did it! I was worried for a moment.
Don't forget me!
YES! YOU DID IT!
Noooooo!
Ahh ha! Thought you could hide from me, eh? Escaping? I don't think so! Hey! Leave me alone!
Hey! He was mine!
Hey, what's the big idea?
 
Foooooooooooooooooooooooooooox!

Annoyed yet? Thought you might be. Try listening to that during the entire time you you play Starfox64.
I give you Slippy Toad!

Day 5 - Game character you feel you are most like (or wish you were).
Photobucket
I am not like Nathan Drake from the Uncharted series at all... but I wish I was. I've always thought being a walking wikipedia of ancient knowledge would be really cool... and Nate proves my point. He's based off of Nathan Fillion and the guy who voices him even tries to mimic Fillion's voice. That's why Nathan Fillion needs to be cast in the Uncharted movie they're working on. NOT Mark Wahlberg.
Also, I'd love to be able to wear a scarf and still look cool.

Day 4 - Your guilty pleasure game.

This would be a lot easier... if I were ashamed of the things I do.
That being said, my guilty pleasure game is...


I can't really explain why I'm the only person in the world that enjoys playing this Mario game. "But it's not a Mario game! It's all about F.L.U.D.D.!" Wanna know what I say? I don't fuckin' care. I have fun playing it. Get off me.

Day 3 - A game that is underrated.

So many choices! But I have to go with...
Photobucket

Ever since I bought this game I've played it for a week every summer. That's right. I pull my playstation out and pop this sucker in. Wired controllers man. How do they work?
Anyway, this game is the best hack 'n slash I've ever played. I know that sounds biased, coming from me, but it's not. I'm still heartbroken that they never made sequels to go along with the other prequels. I really wanted to see the control scheme they'd give Anakin... and see if they let him use two sabers. If you've ever played this game you can only imagine how cool it would have been to play the Geonosian Arena level for an AotC version.

Day 2 - Your favorite character.
This category was a little tough for me. There are so many cool characters to pick from like Link, Revan, Master Chief, John Marston or Nathan Drake. I decided to pick the character that I've enjoyed playing as the longest and one who has a definitive characterization, one that I had no control over. To me, those are the characters that make the best impressions. Don't give me any choices in this character's development or actions and STILL make me want to play as them repeatedly? I'm in.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you....

Day 1 - Your first video game

My parents gave me a handful of video games when they bought me my SNES. The one I remember the most and the first game I ever completed was Disney's Aladdin. The Genie levels... are a thing of beauty.

I was lucky enough to get some free passes to an advanced screening of the next three episodes of The Clone Wars that will air in January. These three episodes are the introduction of the new villain Savage Opress, deals with Asajj Ventress and the Nightsisters of Dathomir.

First things first. Savage Opress. Savage is the same species as Darth Maul. He's even his brother, or so we're told. He's bigger, less refined version of his older brother. He's also yellow... and voiced by Clancy Brown. Now I know 'DARTH MAUL'S BROTHER OMIGAWD' sounds like it's just a plot device but believe me, it's not. He is handled extremely well.

The fights are some of the best we've had in Star Wars and most of them have three or MORE participants. The final duel is really something to see. Savage and Ventress vs Dooku quickly becomes a free for all. A short while later it becomes Savage vs Obi-Wan and Anakin while Ventress takes on Dooku alone in the ducts below. That's all in ONE fight. If you're a fan of epic lightsaber duels you simply HAVE to watch this trilogy of episodes.

Now for the big spoiler at the end of the story. If you plan on watching these episodes in January, and I hope you do, don't read from this point on.

Spoiler below the cut.Collapse )
