The Official Zelda Time Line is WRONG!

So there is something I wanted to write about for a while, but haven’t because it’s a bit complicated. It is so complicated because it involves….well time travel.

Nintendo officially released the Legend of Zelda time line to the masses. This is old news, however, they just recently released the book that contained the timeline to America. The Zelda time line claims to split into three time lines from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. These three paths areOcarina-of-Time-Link

  1. Link defeating Ganon after his rise to power
  2. Link as a child before Ganon rised to power
  3. and…. Link failing in his quest (dead as a door knob)

Nintendo says three time lines, those are it. I say nay IMPOSSIBLE!

The Angry Koopa

In honor of the websites namesake, i’m going to rage out a little bit.

I bought Dead Space 3 on February 5th and my fiance’ bought Sly Cooper for me the same day. I played a little bit of both and decided to keep playing through Sly 4 till I got the Platinum trophies since I knew I would be able to achieve it. Also, I want to be immersed in Dead Space, so I wanted Sly finished before I really committed.

The Angry Koopa

Two weeks later I finished Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time and acquired all the trophies. The next day I started on Dead Space. We go out to the mall the next day, enter Gamestop, low and behold Dead Space 3 is $40 now. I’m all for price drops, it just peeves me off that it happened so soon. Dead Space 3 is not a bad game, it’s not a game you would think would drop so fast. I want to buy Metal Gear Rising now, but hell if they’re just going to drop prices after two weeks, I’ll just play the wait and see game. The worst part is that I didn’t get to really play it the first two weeks because I was so busy with Sly Cooper….I blame Sassy-Phoenix ūüėČ

Sony loyalty = $$$$$

The message I recieved from Sony

Well gamers today I¬†was pleasantly¬†surprised with a gift from our friends at Sony. I hooked my PS3 back up after an extended period playing Fable 2 on my 360 to discover that I had a message. The message was indicating that I was being given a voucher to redeem for $10¬†to use on the PSN store. Naturally I initially¬†thought it was total bullshit. Koopa and myself used to get this all the time from friends and random people as chain messages telling us if we sent it to 50 other people Sony would give us $50. What surprised me was that the sender was PSN and the reason for the voucher was for my loyalty as a PSN customer. The link on the message took me directly to the store and voila, there¬†in the store¬†it confirmed my $10. How freaking awesome is that? Seeing as how¬†I was looking to purchase¬†Resident Evil: Operation Racoon City for $4.99¬†pre-owned at BestBuy¬†I can potentially¬†invest the $10 towards one of the DLC packs, a¬†PSN game¬†or¬†finally get¬†Harley Quinn’s¬†Revenge¬†for Arkham¬†City. The choices are abundant and what makes spending the money even¬†better was that it was given to me. Free money is the best kind of money! Thanks for reading, leave a comment at your leisure, check your¬†PSN¬†messages and as always game on gamerz!psn

The Frugal Gamer

Hello¬†fellow gamers¬†I thought I would start¬†this new segment to bring some attention to some¬†really great deals available¬†in both¬†retail outlets¬†and online. I chose frugal because the word “cheap” just¬†has such a negative connotation¬†to it. My purpose for creating this¬†segment¬†was to reach out to like-minded¬†gamers such as myself who enjoy gaming but would rather not spend $60 a pop for every new release that comes out. As gaming has become more and more expensive I’ve had to really curb my spending habits and I’m¬†sure a lot of you can relate to that sentiment.¬†Let’s face it the economy isn’t in the greatest shape right now and every dollar you spend has to count.Pink piggy bank surrounded by stacks of gold coins.¬†Does that mean that¬†our beloved¬†hobby has to take such¬†a critical hit?¬†The answer is NO!¬†What it’s going to¬†take on our part however¬†is a little¬†patience (waiting on prices to drop or sales)¬†and some real bargain hunting to get the most for¬†our dollar. As I have changed my spending habits and as my gaming habits have changed¬†I’ve also discovered some really great games I passed on before like Fable II & III both of which I will list in regards to location and¬†price below.

Play N Trade & GameStop

  • Fable 2 $2.99 0r $14.99(Platinum Edition) pre-owned¬†Xbox360
  • Fable 3 $8.99 pre-owned¬†Xbox360

PSN & XboxLive

  • Alien Breed all three installments $4.99 each (PSN) 400 MSP (Live)

Sly Koopa

Hello all, I want to take a moment to explain why I personally haven’t been posting as much. First off thanks to AriesKnight for picking up the slack. Anyway, I’m head first into graduating this year. Also I recently got a job working as a web designer. So between me interning and building someones website for free, and me working at a job on different websites, I’ve unfortunately¬† had to neglect my website. Anyway back on topic.

SlyCooperI’ve recently got the platinum for Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. Two Platinums because the vita version comes free when you buy the Playstaion 3 version. The game is really good. For two straight weeks I played this game and enjoyed every minute of it. The best part was I used my vita as an AR treasure finder when playing on PS3, and when my lady wanted to watch T.V., I could continue the story on the vita. Also the fact that this game released at 40 dollars makes it a no brainer. I can not praise it enough. There really aren’t many platformer games these days and the new Sly Cooper is ¬†top notch. I never played the original three, but when I get time, I will definitely¬†be picking up the HD collection…and get those platinums too!

I could go into detail about the mechanics, gameplay, etc, but I’m sure you have other websites that have already told you. I will say I highly recommend ¬†Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. especially for anyone missing the days of platformers from the Playstation/Playstation2 era.

Anarchy Reigns: First Impressions

Anarchy ReignsHaving recently purchased the¬†title on sale at GameStop for $20 I thought I would write briefly about my experience with the game thus far. Playing Anarchy Reigns gives me hope for more similar titles to follow¬†and if you’ll forgive the pun shows¬†the beat √©m¬†up genre still has some fight left in it. With that said I have to say that Platinum studios have crafted yet another solid and enjoyable title through their partnership with Sega. The first thing I have to say about Anarchy reigns is¬†I really love is the character roster which is a total of 17 if you count Bayonetta who is only available as DLC for those lucky enough to have pre-ordered the game.Jack¬†Each character has their own unique personality,¬†move set, weapons and special techniques. While the campaign is long its focus is on two main characters Jack and Leo. The other playable characters are unlocked only¬†through the course of the campaign for use in the online co-op and competitive modes. Combat is simple yet somewhat deep but not the kind of depth that you would find in a standard fighting game. The game world or levels you play in are big and missions unlock as you achieve high scores beating hordes of enemies. Now to the meat of the game which is the online modes. I really appreciate the co-op modes because that’s when it starts to feel like an old school beat √©m¬†up. Perhaps my only real complaint in regards to the game was that co-op wasn’t implemented into the campaign. A minor gripe of course¬†and something im sure will be addressed if a sequel (fingers crossed) is ever developed. Competitive mode will take some getting used to as it can be a bit chaotic but fun as all hell to play. Imagine Uncharted 3 but instead of using guns players run around beating the crap out of each other with martial arts. There are other modes for online to talk about¬†but that’s mostly what I’ve played so far with the time I’ve had with the game. The beat √©m up genre has been long in need of some resuscitation and Anarchy Reigns is a wonderful step in the right direction.Leo¬†The question is will other developers follow suit? If anything a game like this should have Sega wondering if they should let Platinum develop a sequel to their Streets of Rage series. What about Capcom¬†with their Final Fight? Granted they released a sequel in 2006 but the game was a¬†commercial and critical¬†failure for Capcom. While I do love and appreciate games like Double Dragon Neon and Scott Pilgrim with their old school charm, for the genre to truly¬†thrive it has to have¬†more releases like Anarchy Reigns to innovate and¬†move it forward. Well that’s my first impression of Anarchy Reigns and you may¬†take from it what you will but these are just my opinions.¬†If you’re a beat ’em up enthusiast like myself it’s definitely¬†a purchase and if you’re unsure about¬†it’s at¬†least worth a rental. Got a comment leave it below. If you want to game with me¬†it’s AriesKnight78¬†on PS3. Game on gamerz!
