31 Days 2020 Edition Day 5: Dome


Custom Robo Battle Revolution (GCN): Mysterious Medicine

My introduction to the series was in middle school at a friend’s house but I wouldn’t actually play through the game until High School. This series is criminally underrated and underutilized. They only made 5 entries in the series with three of them being pre GCN titles (N64 and GBA). Battle Revolution and the DS installment Battle Arena were the only games to make it out west.

As far as introductions go Battle Revolution is a great place to start, not that I or anyone else out west had much of a choice but that doesn’t matter when a game is this good. The gameplay is great, the customization is awesome, the arenas are fun, and the story along with the music are well made. This track in particular fits really well in the context of the game. The short of it is that humanity has been living in a dome for generations because the majority of the world has been destroyed by a spirit entity who has ultimately been trapped inside of a Robo. Everyone except a select few people believe that the dome is the entirety of the world and being a video game you could suspend your disbelief enough to believe that as well. This revelation of a desolate world and the cause of it is accompanied by this eerie track.

For a time, it’s just you staring out into the abyss that was presumably Earth at one point. Knowing that the cause is out there, building up its strength as it did all those years ago. You also have to contend with a Syndicate that is hell bent on using this Robo to conquer the world and they operate in this wasteland. It is a lot to take in and a memorable moment in the game.

About Agent9one of us since 12:45 PM on 04.13.2010

Who is Agent9? The not so secret agent of the destructoid community.

A Few things about me

- I'm almost finished with my degree in computer science and I plan on going into independent development and freelancing once I'm done.

- I can be very cynical, but I do try to be positive or curb my negativity. In spite of this I'm actually very jovial in person and I don't get mad often. I would dare say I'm quite happy, even when things seem bleak. I simply don't like industry Bullshit and I'm not one to stand for it, even if it's a game I like.

- I host a series annually called 31 Days where I post 1 horror related or themed video game song a day for the month of october. During this time I also provide keys for games (free of course) to any reader observant enough to find them.

- I've been a member of destructoid since 2010, and a lurker long before then. As such I've seen many people both come and go. Such is the natural order of things.

- I enjoy Art and draw in my spare time

- I also enjoy theatre and films. I especially like Horror movies (both good and bad ones).

- I go camping once or twice a year. I would go out more but my allergies tend to get in the way.

- I don't drink, which may be a surprise to some. I might make a joke or two about it but I stay away from alcohol for my own personal reasons, though you can feel free to drink a pint on my behalf any time you'd like.

This is a commission I had done for me by Inquisitive Ravenclaw. You should check out his site if you like the following piece

I also got a musical piece made for me by the incredible Alphadeus. A little history behind this:

My musical piece came as part of the Songs for Gamers album DLC pack 02. Alphadeus has been making songs for the members of the destructoid community for years already. This past year he opened submissions and I applied. For my meagre efforts I received this lovely piece:

You can find him on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFs2UhJYPVITYWCiqMk-z3w

He also has other venues listed on his profile here, take a look if you are so inclined:

The community is full of people with all kinds of talent and I'm very pleased to be a part of it along with all of you (yes, you too fair reader).
