Posted by BanjoKazooie on 16 June 2015 - 02:21 PM

Microsoft: A-

Tons of great games shown. Halo 5 looks beautiful. They finally gave creative freedom back to Rare and better late then never! The Sea of Thieves showing looks enticing. Also, the Rare Replay is one of the better deals in gaming I have ever seen! 30 critically acclaimed games from 4-30 years ago, for $30? Also, backwards compatibility announced? That really did me in.  The presentation was boring itself to watch, but man did they bring some surprises. Also, that minecraft hololens showing was insane!


Bethesda: B-

Bethesda had an alright first showing, DOOM looked gorgeous but looked pretty bland combat wise, and the guts and gore are a little too much for me.Dishonered, Hell yeah. Their arena combat game that I have already forgotten the name of looked atrocious, and the saver of the day was certainly Fallout 4, which I will put money on being the best game ever made, and it is releasing right before my birthday.


Sony- B+

Sony brought big guns, but they were underwhelming to me. Shenmue being fanfunded makes me quite sketched out. FF7 remake looks cool but its just that, a remake.  And then there was The Last Guardian, which I had forgotten about since about mid 2010, and wished it had stayed that way. The gameplay looked boring, the character design and environment looks no different then 6 years ago, and the worst part, it isn't even coming to next year.  No Man's Sky looks impressive, but also seems to have absolutely nothing to do in that massive universe but explore cookie cutter planets that change the color of the leaves.  They pretend like what they are doing has never been done before, but I've played the atrocity that was spore and this is clearly a modern take on that game in many ways. However, despite this seemingly negative rant, I was quite impressed with the thing as a whole. Also, Horizon might be the game that forces me into buying a PS4.


Nintendo: F

By far the worst E3 I have ever seen (haven't been at it that long, started in 2010). Starfox looks like it should be on GAMECUBE, and the gyro controls and emphasis on second screen play looks awful. Zelda...... Well if they took the developers that are making this game and had them work on Zelda U I could probably have it by the end of the year, instead of this uninspired second coming of four swords that even takes a backstep and only includes three links. The puppet thing made me uncomfortable, and the constant developer interviews ruined the pacing and felt like filler trying to make up for the little and unsubstantial content they had.  Especially the yarn yoshi lady, i wanted to hit her she was so awful.  Instead of  a true animal crossing we are getting a wierd take on mario party that requires amiibos, so to truly enjoy what little is to be enjoyed you have to pay probably and extra 60 bucks to have four players. I thought this was a Nintendo direct not an EA conference. The only saving grace was mario maker, but by the time they talked about it I was so annoyed and frustrated that I didn't even care how awesome it was, Nintendo had already crapped their pants and even an entire container of febreeze couldn't rid my house of the smell. I have been a die hard Nintendo fan since my toddler days of sitting on my father's lap and watching him play Mario64 and Banjo-Kazooie, but as hard as it is it might be time to keep the fond memories but change my course because I do not like this "transformation" one bit..... Sorry for the rant.

#314642 E3 Best (and worst) moments so far.

Posted by BanjoKazooie on 16 June 2015 - 09:25 AM

Okay, so this is a list of what I feel are the best moments this year so far, and the worst.  Please put your own opinions as well!




5. Rare Replay- Microsoft.

 As a massive fan of old school Rare, to be able to receive 30 of their hits for only $30 is a steal.  This will surely take up hundreds of hours of my time come august when this releases, and Microsoft has seemed to have righted their wrongs and let Rare take a creative leap again with Sea of Thieves, a new pirate open world adventure game that looks like Black Flag but in an mmo setting.. Whatever the case I am looking forward to it!

4. Horizon- Zero Dawn

  the new Open world RPG in a  post apocalyptic setting looks to play fantastically! And I am a sucker for games like this, the gameplay looked incredibly smooth and creative, and the robot monsters are a cool twist! Too bad I do not have a PS4... Yet

3. Dark Souls III

  Not much has actually been shown for this new game, but after playing both of the prequels I am super excited for the third installment!  I know it is probably a ways away, but just seeing concept for it chilled my bones. A nice surprise in a lineup of great games.

2. Mario Maker

  When I saw this game last year I didn't think much of it, I thought it was going to be very limited and closed in what it could do. However I have been proved wrong by Nintendo. They have put great effort into making this a fantastic tool that has seemingly limitless potential.  Day one buy for me.  (Also that final round of NWC was so intense, it basically sold me on this game!)

1. Call of Duty  FALLOUT 4!!!!!!

The game looks like a combination of just about everything popular in gaming. Post apocalypse Check.  Giant open world check.  Crafting check.  Guns check. Sandbox and city custom building check. Tower defense check.  Everything a modern gamer could want is on this.  And despite the backhanded Nintendo slap, this game has everything that I could want.


The Worst

3. The Last Gaurdian-  I know, this game is one of the most anticipated titles of the last decade, but the gameplay was completely underwhelming and looked like it could get annoying fast.  The boys character design is awful, and his call for the beast is downright obnoxious.  This game will have taken 8 years to develop when it releases, but it looks like an ambitious indie title at best.  I hope they prove me wrong, but this game looks like it will disappoint.

2. Star Fox: Zero

 The game looks like it is for the gamecube, super bland textures and Zero details.  But I don't care about graphics as much as I care about what looks to be a very annoying second screen experience. I HATE GYRO.  And I will get really annoyed switching between the screens and it looks like this is the only method in the game. Also, no multiplayer? Seems odd to me.  The game is certainly nothing exciting.

1. Nintendo in general

 I had high hopes for a metroid game, and they blew it with the 3ds game which looks half assed.  I had high hopes for animal crossing on wiiu, and All i get is a pay tons of money for amiibo mario pary-esque game that looks boring as heck.  I had high hopes for paper mario, and they blow that with yet another 3ds version that seems to crap on the classic first two by combining it with the popular but less quality Mario and Luigi series.  And last, I had high hopes for Zelda Wii U which they left out because they are taking their good old time with it and instead of dedicating people and time to their one game that can save them they are giving me a four swords second coming that for the 3ds that looks like it is far inferior to the other 3ds zeldas and felt like a slap in the face. **Takes deep breath** Rant over.

#314621 Nintendo e3 - Digital Event Thread

Posted by BanjoKazooie on 16 June 2015 - 09:02 AM

This was the worst E3 show/direct form anyone I have ever seen.. I just wasted 45 minutes of my life..


Posted by BanjoKazooie on 10 May 2015 - 06:01 AM

I like the effort put into this, but I call hoax. Sounds believable though!

#311105 Zelda Wii u DELAYED until 2016

Posted by BanjoKazooie on 28 March 2015 - 04:52 PM

Am I the only one who is happy about this? I really hope they create a game that people remember for generations, like aLttP, or OoT!

#310578 Teaser: Happy Mask Salesman to be in new Zelda game.

Posted by BanjoKazooie on 15 March 2015 - 01:18 PM

I think all Zelda games are really fun personally except the DS ones.. Majora's Mask is by far my favorite though but I do see how some people wouldn't like it.  I think they all bring something new to the table while retaining enough from previous games to feel like a series. It's funny that those are the two games you love because they are my least favorite, WW was incomplete and absurdly easy and I guess I just never got into the whole setting of Awakening. But everyone has their own opinions which is what makes forums work

#310572 Teaser: Happy Mask Salesman to be in new Zelda game.

Posted by BanjoKazooie on 15 March 2015 - 12:09 PM


My, my... I've certainly been appearing all over the place these past few days! If this keeps going, maybe it wouldn't be a stretch to expect me to pop up in a new Zelda game, too...? Ho, ho, ho... I've got some new masks, too, if you'd like to try them on... If I do make an appearance, I'm sure everyone will experience such happiness! Believe in your strengths... Believe... Ho, ho, ho...




During a Miiting the other day on miiverse, the Happy mask salesman was teased to be featured in a New Zelda Game!  Personally, I believe this will be one of the many sidequests in the upcoming Zelda U, where his masks are the reward for doing trade sequences much like in OoT.  However, as the source stated, the possibility for a new game based off of MM is pretty high considering how amazing the game has sold for being released in February, maybe a N3DS game? It is a bit of a stretch but I think one thing is for sure, that creepy smile will soon haunt us all again soon!


What are your thoughts?

#309901 Wii U really is the best console for exclusive games.

Posted by BanjoKazooie on 01 March 2015 - 04:42 PM

Yes I have the Wii U and the One and I can definitely say the U gets sooooooo much more play time.  Games on the x1 are so sparce and far between.  Although PC still gets the most use.

#309876 Wii U Zelda Map Analysis

Posted by BanjoKazooie on 01 March 2015 - 06:49 AM

Yeah it will be incredibly interesting to see if they implement large towns/hamlets in the game.   I'm hoping for a very large castle town and then a few hylian villages, a few human villages, and then a large town for each of the other races such as the gerudo, zora, and goron.  Also, I can't wait to see what the lost woods looks like in this game!

#309640 Playtonic working on Banjo Kazooie spiritual successor (mentions Wii U)

Posted by BanjoKazooie on 25 February 2015 - 02:18 PM

HYPEEEEEEEEEE.... 2015 is THE year for gaming.  So many fantastic games on the horizon that staying up with them all is tricky! But honestly besides LOZ Wii U, this game is probably my most anticipated, even though it probably won't launch for several more years, just getting more info about what the game is like is exciting enough.

#309460 State random video game facts

Posted by BanjoKazooie on 22 February 2015 - 01:17 PM

Zelda was named after the wife of Great Gatsby author, F. Scott Fitzgerald. 


Banjo-Kazooie was initially a SNES title named "Project Dream" but was changed so dramatically the game is unrecognizable to its early screenshot.  The only remnants of the game is Captain Blackeye in Banjo-Tooie that was supposed to be the primary antagonist for Project Dream.  Also, Banjo, Gruntilda, and Tiptup were minor characters in the game.

the donkey kong one made me loose all sense of control.. That is disturbing beyond belief!!!

#309376 Wii U top 3 games (for new owners)

Posted by BanjoKazooie on 21 February 2015 - 05:52 AM

I respectfully disagree with all of yours.  I guess mine would have to be:


1. Zelda WWHD: Pure Nintendo, even if you have played the original this classic should not be passed up.  While IMO it is not as great as its other 3D brothers, that doesn't say much because they are all masterpieces.  The HD really brings out the characters and their expressions, as well as making the sky super beautiful to look at! It is most definitely my favorite Zelda in terms of environment and exploration, while it did loose some greatness with its shotty dungeons.  But still, a great 25 hour adventure worth your time.


2. DKCTP, the game has amazing graphics, fantastic music, and most of all it is probably the best side scrolling platformer made in the last decade.  It does everything its predecessor did right, with more (with the exception of game length, but that was worth it because everything in the game was amazing).  It is the epitome of a Nintendo platformer and should not be passed up.


3. Mario Kart 8: by far the most inventive, most beautiful, and most fantastic Mario Kart to date.  It does everything right, and it deserves its spot as the pinnacle of Wii U gaming. It is fun by yourself, fun with friends, fun with Families, and super fun online.  The game looks so fantastic it is hard to not love it.  


With these three games you cover quite a bit of gaming niches, maybe if you do not enjoy ZWWHD, swap it for Bayonetta 2.

#309345 Post One or Two Interesting Facts About Yourself

Posted by BanjoKazooie on 20 February 2015 - 03:58 PM

1. I'm a certified genius (159 IQ), and I am attending Penn State University this upcoming fall, joined the honors program. Also, although I am technically smart, I am in complete lack of common sense, and some things I say are downright idiotic.  I also love chemistry to death and my teacher thinks I am some sort of prodigy but he is ticked because I want to develop video games instead of be a lab rat :P

2. I have written probably two dozen short stories and maybe another 50 poems that are all contained within a couple journals in my room, no one else but me has ever read them.  I do it therapeutically, it helps me distress and come to terms with my feelings and emotions. Looking back on them sometimes induces vomit out of sheer disgust with myself.

This character design may just make up for the rest.  I freaking love this guy.  Also the new frontier system they have detailed has really got me hyped, looks too good to be true!
