So, yeah, as you may have all noticed, that quote is from Pulp Fiction. I watched it again recently... really great movie... I think if they tried to make a game based on it nowadays it might actually work... I dunno about 1997, when the movie came out, but nowadays seems entirely plausible...
They could do it half-adventure game, half-action/shooter...
What do you guys think? would a Pulp Fiction video game work or not?
Anyways, let me respond to...
The Question of the Day
Does Nintendo's Statement in Edge Magazine about it's new "Core" games being two to three years away make you want to sell your Wii, or are you going to wait and see how this all pans out?
I'm gonna wait... My Wii has been collecting dust for a while now... the last game I played on it was Boom Blox, and that was around mid-June... I think there's still gonna be some interesting third party titles coming out... but the biggest reason is... I don't feel like having to re-buy my Wii again 2-3 years down the road... I'm content with it as it is, and I can keep playing my 360 until these "core" games come out.
That leads me onto my next topic...
What i've Been Playing
So, I downloaded Castle Crashers and I've been playing that all day... Definitely my top pick out of all the games released this month on XBLA... The game is just so excellently structured... you've got your standard overworld map, you've got hidden characters, your light RPG elements. and then you have the wonderful art style... all the subtle references to other classic brawlers, like the fight for the princess after a boss fight when playing co-op... totally Double Dragon. All of the rideable creatures... totally Golden Axe. Really, the entire game feels like is should have came out mid-90's, and that's not a bad thing... Actually, it feels a lot like Medieval River City Ransom. I think I might make Castle Crashers the first game I'll do a User Review for on Giant Bomb. So look forward to that once I finish the game.
So, speaking of the 90's, I've also recently found out about DOSBox. What a wonderful emulator. I managed to play Shadow Warrior with sound! And Duke3D ran like a charm! Oh, and now I can load up Wolfenstein 3D. Ah, it feels so nice to be able to play Wolf3d again. Ever since WinXP came out, I thought I wouldn't be able to play any Build Engine games ever again! Fortunately, now I can, and many other fine DOS games.
Well, before I leave, I just want to ask you guys what you think of my new format... do you guys think I should continue to seperate things with titles like this, or do you think I should just write it up like I have been? Post some responses in the comments.
