Recently purchased and completed Starfox Assault on Gamecube. Enjoyed the game. I found it brand new and sealed. Even though the packaging is in Italian. The main game is in English and that's all that matters. It's not as awesome as Starfox 64 but it's great seeing the gang in 128bit. The voices suck (Peppy's is okay, I suppose). I liked how you can run around freely, ride in the Landmaster and fly in the Arwing whenever, but I felt like there was a little too much on-foot action. Falco didn't disappoint but he could have been a little more like his Starfox 64 persona. The final boss was easy. I thought I had no chance since I lost a lot of lives when playing on-foot (awful controls). Definitely going to play it again to get all medals. After seeing Wolf in Assault, I've come to like him. He's not the bad guy he seems from Starfox 64 but just anti-hero, awesome bad-ass. Spoiler start My favourite scene has to be when Wolf saves Fox in Corneria. Shooting down baddies on his Wolfen's wing was cool. Neat. Spoiler end Playing this makes me want Starfox for the Wii. Having two player story mode is a dream or the ability to change character. Don't get me wrong, Fox is awesome but Falco is the one for me. It was funny seeing Slippy's Dad, Beltino, just as retarded as his son but at least his voice isn't that bad. I'm disappointed that Slippy no longer has a 'S' on his cap. Not to represent the first letter of his name but also "I'm special" or "Stupid". Shame. I think I'll go back onto Starfox Command. Now I just need to play the original and Starfox Adventures, then I'll be happy.
TV Burp is back! Yes, it's been back for a few weeks but I haven't posted about it yet. I love the show. Can't get enough of the style of humour which Harry Hill so perfectly executes. I really hope ITV will release a DVD of all the episodes. Every fan of the show really wants this to happen. I would buy it in a blink of an eye. BRING ON THE WALL!
Wow, Chocobo's Dungeon is actually a challenge. The battles aren't particularly difficult, it's just when you get surrounded by four of five enemies at once or get trapped in a room full of them. You can run like a sissy but it can really piss you off. After some levelling up and surviving the battles, everything gets easy. It's good fun stealing Moogle's special items and legging it. There are two tactics (that I know of) you can use against him. 1. If you have a few sleep spells left then use it and run like hell out there. 2. Run around clockwise around the counter (away from where Moogle stands), dodge his beam and escape to the stairs. There's no point trying to fight him yet until you can withstand over 777 damage from his beam if you are unlucky to get hit by it.
Happy Birthday, Kumi Koda!!
