    • IS Epic Mickey 2 going to be the first Musical comedy game?

      5 years ago

       Hi folks, Kainin here! Interjecting  some self-musing on you all.
       

      After watching this past weeks SideScrollers,I was a little bit intrigued at a comment from Warren Spector,creative director for Epic Mickey 2.

      His comment went along the lines, like this:


      “Epic Mickey 2 is the first musical comedy game in the history of videogames,” Spector gushed. “We’re honoring 80 years of Disney creativity, how could we not have songs in the game?”

      Now..I thought to myself,"Hey  self? Isn't there already a Musical Adventure game out there? One that has comedic elements, and catchy musical numbers? Oh Yeah! Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure!".

      This game first released on the PSOne (there *is* a DS version, but they altered a few things in it). Myself personally? I own this game.
      It may look like a girly game..I mean sure.. It has singing, dancing and puppets..wait.. puppets?! You bet our sweet bippy there are puppets. But don't take MY word for it, why not instead, watch this awesome intro song?

      So yeah, you play as Cornet.. This sweet girl who can talk to, and later control puppets, via her horn.. Yup..horn. Cornet is on a mission to save her prince from the evil clutches of the witch Marjoly! (Boy will you get a jiggle out her song..I mean giggle..yeah..giggle)
       

      Joking aside, this actually was a very decent game. It is a Tactical RPG (which was altered to turn-based in the DS remake), in which you find and recruit puppets to help you on your journey.

      So, even though it is a short game(roughly 10 hours to beat), it was quite enjoyable, and the tunes weren't that bad.

      As for Mickey? Take THAT mouse! Looks like you aren't the first musical game after all! Kidding..I still love you Disney.

    • After Dark: Player 4 shirts

      5 years ago

      g1Kainin

      Greetings everyone, I am g1 Kainin. Some of you may remember some time ago, I designed some Team Shirts for our After Dark players, seen here: www.screwattack.com/news/mario-party-after-dark-team-shirts. Well today, I bring you the Final Four. Hope you enjoy them

      Let's start this off, with Team Lauren!! Lauren was repping the colour Baby Blue, and played Donkey Kong, as opposed to playing Peach, like most assumed she would. Lauren put up a great fight, and we hope she shall make another appearance soon.

      Next up, boasting the colour orange, is Team Ben. Ben was our most recent challenger to appear on After Dark, and he rose to the rank of Second Place. Most of you know Ben now as Link/PooP, from Zelda Wednesday, but before that, he was Metal Gear Ben (seriously check that out if you already haven't).

      Now it's time for our bad-ass Mod, Team Bryan, flying the Cyan banner~ Bryan will hopefully be making his debut on Mario Party 5, and we are all excited to see how he does. Obey the law, or face his wrath!

      Last, but certainly not least, is our very own Dragon-born, Team Sean!!! After much discussion, Sean will be repping Olive, as his Team colour. Will he win? Will he lose? Or will his evil beard run off again? Stay tuned to find out! Fus Ro Dah!

      Thank-you to every one of you, who makes After Dark happen. Truly appreciate the time you make for us, so that we may continue enjoying this event.

      And always remember: Friendships are checked at the door!

      • Team Jared=Red
      • Team Sam=Purple
      • Team Chad=Green
      • Team Nick=Yellow
      • Team Lauren=Baby Blue
      • Team Ben=Orange
      • Team Bryan=Cyan
      • Team Sean=Olive
    • Postponed AVGN Signing

      g1Kainin

      Editor's Note: James actually decided to drive on up to Canada in a very kind gesture to make sure he would meet the awesome Canadian fans at A & C and I'm happy to report that he has made to the "Great White North" and that the signing will happen today at 4 pm-6 pm. Great job on the gallery Kainin!

      Also be sure to check out Kainin's other A & C gallery by clicking here

      So today, myself and g1 James Ronald headed over to A & C Games, to meet up with Sam, and the AVGN. Unfortunetly, due to technical issues, James Rolfe's flight was cancelled. Though slightly upset they could not meet their idol today, fans came in the store to greet Sam, buy merch, and play a plethora of games that the AVGN has covered in his videos. All in all, people had a great time. Some fans posed to show me their best,"AVGN" poses.

    • A & C Games is an amazing retro game shop

      If you live in or around the Greater Toronto Area, and you love retro or vintage games, you should take a swing by A & C Games. Located at 706 Spadina Avenue, this shop carries every game and gaming console imaginable.

      There are actually two sections of the store: A & C Games, which is where you can purchase games, consoles, and other merch. The other section is A & C World, in which you can play on any console of your choice, or partake in some Arcade action. They also are known for holding tournaments, and having guests like the Nostalgia Critic, and the AVGN.

      As a joke, I made Kitty Shepard here. 

    • Helpful After Dark Tips

      5 years ago

      g1Kainin

      So, we have now had three eventful Mario Party runs, and hopefully a fourth is soon underway . That being said, I wanted to help out some of the g1's/fans of the After Dark with some tips.

      Time-Zone issues. Obviously not all the fans are in the same time-zone/part of the world, that SA is, and some people have a hard time with Time-Zone conversion. Here is a program I use to help me out. http://www.timeanddate.com/

      Make sure you click the Timer option, then select countdown.

      After inputting the date, time, etc, make sure you click USA-Dallas Texas.

      Once you have entered all the information, simply click "Show Countdown" and voila! Your own personal timer. Bookmark the link and use that to check how long you have till After Dark starts!

       Now! Once you have logged into chat http://www.twitch.tv/screwattack, change your name to your corresponding Team colour! To do this, simply click on the gear icon next to the chat bar, and select the Team you are repping. 

      • Team Jared is Red
      • Team Chad is Green
      • Team Sam is Purple
      • Team Nick is Yellow
      • Team Lauren is Baby Blue

      Most imortantly folks, have fun, enjoy the show, and please try not to spam chat with,"TEAM BLANK,TEAM BLANK, TEAM BLANK" over and over, filling up your chat capacity. It's annoying, and makes it hard on the Mods at times to catch spambots or offenders. Nothing wrong with cheering on your Team... But be creative. And nothing super crass that would warrant an immediate Ban Hammer to your head.

    • Another Predator Shirt!?

       So here we are again folks, with another nerdly inspired Predator shirt!

      This shirt idea came up from Tom the Iron Man! We are such nerds.

      "since the Predator takes up 4 squares of health when he hits you in the final battle..."
    • Pinball Cafe

       Pinball.. At some point in your life, you may have had the chance to play one.
      I remember playing these in the Arcade attached to the old movie theater back home.
       This past Wednesday ,  g1 JamesRonald and myself visited a Pinball Cafe , located at 1662 Queen St W, Toronto.  
      This was a complete throw back to my childhood.
      Pinball machines lining the room,
      game cabinets, board games, and all the sweets you could want.

      Most of the machines were the standard fare of .25cents, while some of the games were a $1.00.
      The service at the shop is wonderful, the Owner is very nice, and enjoys telling stories of how he came across certain cabinets.
      Another neat fact we learned, is that the Owner also runs another business of custom building cabinets.
       

      FYI- James doesn't like being mocked after he has mocked you~

      The gentleman that owns the DeLorean stated he has been working on/off the car for about six to seven years.
