Halo Reach and its lame ending.

September 27th, 2010 § 0

I've died countless times in much worse ways than this.

***SPOILER ALERT*** If you haven’t finished Halo Reach and are planning to do so in the future, don’t read this post. Otherwise, read on! ***SPOILER ALERT***

So, let me preface this by saying that I enjoyed Halo Reach. It’s probably the best campaign of the series in terms of tried and true Halo gameplay with the most epic of set pieces. And for all of its greatness, Bungie added a completely unnecessary epilogue level that is unwinnable.

I get it. Let’s make a dramatic/shocking ending by letting your character have no chance at beating the level and then get overwhelmed and killed by Covenant Elites. And then have an epilogue that tells you its the end despite your best efforts to kickass for the last 10 hours but it was all worth it because you paved the way for Master Chief to kill everything in the future and revenge your death. Which leads me to this…

Yeah, we know we’re supposed to die. But showing it is completely unnecessary. There is just no drama in it. Especially when you’ve spent the last couple hours being brutally murdered over and over again by waves of Elites on Legendary, the novelty of being overwhelmed by Elites loses its impact.

Furthermore, it’s very unsatisfying when you’ve spent the whole game overcoming all of these odds only to be unable to overcome this last onslaught of enemies. And really, it’s just a bunch of grunts and a few Elites. It’s almost as if the game is laughing at you.

So yeah, loved the game and it’s still fun to play but like Lord of the Rings, it really should’ve ended at the first ending. There is closure in knowing that you’ve sent Master Chief on his way to clean up the Universe. Some things just don’t need to be spelled out.

PAX Live Sketches

Just posting a vid of a live sketch I did at PAX 2010– the person who commissioned this goes by Aerovaine on Youtube, and he also got a Ken sketch in his SF20 book last year at PAX as well. I’m sorry I didn’t catch your name, comment it to me and I’ll update this post with your name! :)

And if you were curious about the Ken sketch from last year, here it is below:

Metroid: Other M – Quick Review

September 8th, 2010 § 0

Just finished Metroid Other M with 100% completion and I must say, it was a great throwback to the SNES classic.

Metroid Other M for the Nintendo Wii

While I thoroughly enjoyed the Metroid Prime series, I always felt that it was missing something. Metroid Prime did all of the right things to bring the Metroid franchise into the First Person space– and it was a blast to play. However, what I think Metroid Other M(or MOM for short) does right is bring back that feel that the 2d games always had. More of a simplicity in controls, less item management to juggle. When you upgrade, you retain all of the abilities and their characteristics at all times. In other words, you get stronger and stronger as you play without having to switch modes in order to achieve something.

While the Prime series retained a lot of the feeling of Metroid in its transition to First Person, it also became more complicated in its abilities management between visors and weapons.

There is an attempt to humanize Samus’ character and, while cheesy, does work to some degree. There are a couple of interesting plot twists that nod back to older games– and you can tell that the inspiration for this game really did come from the SNES classic. Even in the opening sequence, there is a shot that is pretty much frame for frame of the mode 7 flight sequence in the beginning of Super Metroid. Also, seeing the ending of Super Metroid rendered in full CGI was a nice treat.

Metroid Other M has so many nods and throwbacks to Super Metroid that it's hard not to appreciate it.

I didn’t have as many control issues as a few reviewers had pointed out, though it was awkward that you couldn’t move around while in first person mode. You always felt vulnerable because you couldn’t actively strafe while shooting.

The bottle ship structure and layout felt very much like Metroid Fusion for the GBA in the sense that you were in a contained ship that had different environments, though not the diversity and scale of a planet. Also, it played very linearly as well. There really is an intended path through the game made much more apparent by the way points that are constantly given to you. So, while it lacks that sense of exploration like Super or Zero Mission, it does make for a more casual gaming experience(the many save points help as well).

Other M plays a lot like a suped up Metroid Fusion for the GBA-- from its setting to its near-linear play structure.

The music/sfx are classic Metroid– many themes from Super come back orchestrated and sound really cool along with the classic sounds of the hyper beam and bombs, etc.

All in all, if you were a fan of Super Metroid, this game is definitely for you. Just ignore the story part and play it like you would the original and you’ll be in for a 10 hour Metroid throwback for the present day Metroid fan.
