  • Dahlia the Spinda (named after Dahlia Gillespie, gyromancer, from Silent Hill)
  • Gustav the Swellow
  • Mia the Delcatty (named after Mia from Ace Attorney)
  • Luna the Castform
  • Bowie the Linoon
  • Stay tuned for my party from Pearl.

    Popular Games Inspire Copy-Cat Versions

    A while ago I was talking about addicting browser games that you shouldn’t play and I got into a discussion with a friend of mine that most of the really addicting games these games are rips of other games. I said “wanna say that to an audience” and she agreed.

    For every popular game there are dozens if not hundreds of copycats. The industry is rife with clones that are just different enough to remain competitive; in fact, some of these clones even become more popular than the original games. Here are just a few of the more recent games that inspired a plethora of duplicates.

    Yoshi’s Island DS Review

    A little while ago I played Yoshi’s Island for the GBA thanks to my friend Jules. Once again I’ve been given the chance to review a Yoshi game: Yoshi’s Island DS.

    Yoshi ISland DS Cover Art

    Console: DS
    Compared to Yoshi’s Island for GBA? Much more variety, more fun
    Compared to Yoshi Touch and Go for DS? Wayyyy better. That game is just not very good at all.

    Top 5 retro casino games

    I was chatting to one of my mates about how he never made it past the Casino Night Zone in Sonic 2. It’s one of my faves. We got chatting about other classic casino based games and after enough poking he wrote this post for me.

    The humble video game of today is changing – for every brand spanking new high definition multiplayer role playing game that lands in our lap, there’s an older game that reaches cult status. From Pacman to Asteroids, retro games are making a bigger comeback than ever across a plethora of genres.

    WarioWare, Inc.: Minigame Mania Review

    The last time I played a Wario game it was Warioland 4 which is a very weird game. This game is also weird but pretty fun. Once again thanks to Jules for letting me play this game.

    WarioWare, Inc. Minigame Mania Cover Art GBA

    Console: GBA
    Weird? Yes, in ways weirder than Warioland, but less trippy.
    Best mini-game? There’s one that references The Legend of Zelda which is cool.

    Silent Hill 2 Review

    Remember a while ago I bought Silent Hill and actually played it without too much screaming and crying? Well, this time I decided to go for the fan favourite: Silent Hill 2.

    This is the one with Pyramid Head, right? Yes you are correct!

    Pokémon HeartGold: Normal Type Party

    So a while ago I drew my party from Yellow and thought I’d follow up with my party from Pokémon HeartGold.

    heart gold

    We have:

  • PiPiPi the Togekiss (in the anime, when Pikachu talks to/about Togepi, his cry is “Pi Pi Pi!” So…)
  • Lickilicky the Lickilicky (in the anime, Jesse has a Lickitung that just says it’s name a lot so I decided not to name it…)
  • Miss Snub the Granbull (evolved from a Snubbull hence the name)
  • Henry the Farfetch’d
  • Mir the Tauros
  • Whitney the Miltank (named after the gym leader in this generation who trains a Miltank)
  • We’re on top of Mt. Silver after beating Red – feels good man.

    Once again, I’ve continued the “normal type party” theme into Johto – I will do one for Hoenn so stay tuned.

    A little while ago I wrote a post about really addicting browser games and a friend of mine wanted to give her input, so please enjoy her take on addiciting games!

    With so many exciting video-games available, it’s almost impossible to narrow a list down to five of the most addictive. Candy Crush Saga is enjoyed by almost a half-billion player’s world-wide. Bejeweled Blitz and World of Warcraft are more popular than ever, and gaming just keeps getting more interesting – as the following five games attest.
