The Last Word With The Cultured Gamers


Politicians say “Video games… the hell is video games?”

First of all, let me start off by saying sorry for not posting yesterday, I had stuff to do (such as buy twilight) I’m making up for it by posting today, and will do so again tomorrow (if you couldn’t already tell, my blog is updated monday, wednesday and fridays.)

Alright, so The weezing democracy of the United States have taken a new aim again… After failing multiple times, Politicians are trying to legislate a game in New York city making the sell of games to persons under 17 a felony. My question is as follows… have any of these old bags actually ever picked up a controller? Have they drove through Hillya? have they Jumped across the mushroom kingdom? have they ever rode on epona through Hyrule?  Answer is Probably not.

I’m just really tired that these old sacks of shit are trying to tell me what I should or shouldn’t play… who the hell are they to tell me what to play? I believe I have the right to decisions of what I can and can’t play, or see for that matter. I think they should be focusing on issues that matter… Like how about brining home the troops?

But no, they have to wage this very stupid war, that affects a world wide industry with this stupidity… our only hope now is that they all have heart attacks… oh how pleasant that day would be.

So as my 2 last posts, That same report says Mario Kart wii Video was shown. The more it goes, the more unbelievable that repot is.

However since the topic came up, might as well discuss this abit

I believe that If they would make such an announcement, they’d wait for E3… why would They show all this stuff to journalists when they can do it live in 6 weeks… they can astonish the world… but no they choose to show it at their Media Summit makes no sense.

Anyways, I believe that this report is now completely fake, It’s such a bad time to launch news like this, and Reggie knows that. However we still then again hope since it gave us a smash date… but this guy probably looked at what was in reason, and did a november date. I honestly pegged the exact same week with my prediction.

We shall now know this as the “Nintendo Media Summit Hoax”



New Zelda game already? *RUMOR*

That very same report that gave us a date for the release of smash and galaxy is also saying this:

The final piece of information however was for most of the press the most exciting of all. A final video was shown that left everyone buzzing with excitement.

Sentences flashed across a black screen and faded…

I don’t remember them all or exactly, but they were similar to what I will provide below:

The greatest adventure in gaming

Lands of epic proportions

A hero for all time

A love to die for…

Link then appears screaming for a very brief second before the screen turns black and a tri-force slams onto the screen and smashes in to pieces.

If the character model used for Link is any indication of where this series is headed, expect ultra-realism, grittiness, and a very dark feel.”

Hmm… This has lost alot of credibility.

Super Smash Bros Brawl. has a release date now set for March 9th 2008, let’s hope thats the last and final release date, and we aren’t jerked around more.

Please visit the forums by clicking here.

E3 is 6 weeks away… and here we are, the rumors have started. 1 of the rumors that popped out came from the Nintendo Media summit that was held over the past week.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Release Date – 11/12/2007

Unfortunately, Smash Bros. only featured one playable level, which is what you’re seeing in most of the screenshots. However, there was a demonstration of the game’s Wi-Fi abilities and one new character shown. As you’ve seen, the game looks stunning and in certain instances plays like a dream. There are two available control methods, “Classic” and “Brawl.” Classic utilizes either a Gamecube controller or the Classic controller and plays much like previous entries in the series. Brawl utilizes the Wii Remote and Nunchuk attachment. Various attacks can be increased in strength by moving the Wii Remote in the direction of the attack. You can also add an extra jump when pressing up on the control stick and moving your Remote upwards. Unfortunately, these maneuvers felt tacked on.

So if this is to be believed, Super smash bros. brawl is to be released November 12th
The same report also suggests that Mario Galaxy will be released December 10th.. Let’s keep our eyes peeled.

The Miracle.

So The Wii is proving impossible to find, and have an absolute need to play some smash, and twilight princess. Since I had sold my cube a while ago ( a decision I regretted) I had no way to play these 2 games. So Today, Thebradshaw and I had planned to go over to forum member Andrex’s house to catch the new Smashbros.com website. We get there, we meet up with 1 of andrexs friends as well named kevin, we take andrex’s car and go for some breakfast. After that, we decide to head over to Microplay ( a small company thats a mix between block buster and EB games.) and I see a cube for 60$.

Never before Have I seen a used cube for such a price, and neither had Thebradshaw. So with a little help from Chris I was able to purchase the cube, however with no game. Thebradshaw promised to lend me a title he had brought along during the day to play at andrexs house named “Beyond Good And Evil” (absolutely incredible game I hear.)

Nothing spectacular yet right? Well we get back to andrex’s house, and I wanted to check out the cube to make sure it worked and all, it was used afterall. So we plug everything in, I take “Beyond Good And Evil” out of its case, I press the open button on the cube, the Top door opens up. I’m about to insert the game, when I notice a game is already in it. I bend over, I take it out… My mouth drops.

Thebradshaw then asks me “what is it” I turn around and say ” I GOT SMASH BITCH!”

Yes, infact the store forgot to check if there was any games in it when they sold it to me, and I got the very game I was buying the system for… and for free. Let’s not forget smash is running at a price of 49.99$ and bought the Cube for 59.99$
