This will be... our final battle.

I have been thwarted yet again. But once more, Tristero, once more will we fight. This will be... our final battle... Umm... yeah, I really wanted that fight scene between Cartman & Kyle during the Gamily Guy episode of South Park... c...

 
 
 

The Pinball Adventure Continues!

After a night of binge-pinballing, I have emerged victorious. If you haven't been following Tristero's contest, then... well, too late. It's down to the two of us now... man to man, mano y mano. While my first night with Devils Crush was ...

 
 
 

I just got punk'd

It's 5:00pm and it's time to go home now. I call the judges to check for remaining writs that need to go out, I turn off the computer, change the date on all the stamps for Monday, and head out the door. Okay, so I hop on the train home ...

 
 
 
 

My Continuing Adventures in Devil's Crush

Yesterday, I made a post about my first experience with Devil's Crush. Unfortunately, I think I had a case of beginner's luck. I went at it for about two hours last night, but my score never topped five million. Sad.

 
 
 

Domestic Abuse Hell Pinball - Devil's Crush

Devil's Crush Handed Me My Ass. No, really, I mean it. Devil's Crush handed me my ass on a platter. With garnish. I think it was parsley. I bought the game in an effort to win some Wii Points (Check out Tristero's Contest), but in the la...

 
 
 

Paper Mario is Fantastic.

Ok, seriously, Paper Mario is the best game released on the Wii in a very long time. Even though it's pushing seven years now, it easily stands shoulder to shoulder with the likes of the best retail Wii releases. That includes Resident Evi...

 
 
 

Gamespot down?

Lol, sorry to make a whole post about this, I'll probably delete it before the day is done. Can someone please go to Gamespot and tell me if the page loads? Everytime I try to go there, my browser treats me as if so nuch thing exists. Tha...

 
 
 

Muslim mockery in Zack & Wiki?

Please excuse the title, it's not meant to be insensitive or anything. I suppose it is however a cheap attempt to grab your attention. This blog post, originaly posted on GoNintendo brought to light something weird. I'm simply reposting ...

Pricing for Some Wii Titles is Just Ridiculous!

OK, I don't think there's anything wrong at all with porting games from the PSP to home consoles. Rockstar did so with both Liberty City Stories & Vice City Stories, and I think they did so with fantastic results. Although I've never play...

 
 
 

To Nyko: Please Make This.

This evening, as I was rooting through a drawer for a GameCube controller, something became abundantly clear to me: I own a metric shit-load (Google it) of Wii accessories. I donít even remember buying most of these, much less why the he...

 
 
 

I Am Very Sad...

See that? Yeah, that's what the fourth page of my Wii channels menu looks like. You know what's worse? I can't utilize the little space that I have left because I (*sob*) don't have enough internal memory to download anymore games. In fac...

 
 

About BenHaskettone of us since 12:32 AM on 03.02.2007



My name is Ben. This is my blog.

I enjoy working in Adobe Flash when I have the time and I've churned out a few websites as a result. I call myself a gamer, although I'm admittedly a bit of a fanboy; you could print "Nintendo" on a roll of toilet paper and I'd bid for that shit on eBay.

Seriously though, I play a lot of games and my platform of choice right now is the DS. There are a ton of sidescrollers and traditional RPGs that I remember playing a lot when I was younger. Better yet, I missed a lot of games on the Super Nintendo back in the day (they were like $70 or something) and a big trend on the DS right now is remaking and re-releasing them for this generation of gamers. I eat that shit up. Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and Shiren the Wanderer FTW.


My Top Seven Favorite Game Franchises:

1. Dragon Quest
2. Half-Life
3. Mario (excluding some)
4. Castlevania
5. Metroid
6. Ace Attorney
7. Resident Evil

Some of my favorite games (In no particular order):

Paper Mario, Xenogears, Okami, the entire Resident Evil Series, Super metroid, Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2, Secret of Mana, Illusion of Gaia, The World Ends With You, Mario Kart DS, Kirby Canvas Curse, Super Mario Galaxy, Fire Emblem: Path of radience, No More Heroes, Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure, Tactics Ogre: Knight of Lodis, Dr. Mario, Devil's Crush, Ninja gaiden (NES), Kingdom Hearts, Dragon Quest Heros: Rocket Slime, the Phoenix Wright series, Hotel Dusk, The Longest Journey, Breath of Fire III, Half-Life 2, Lock's Quest, Henry Hatsworth, Rhythm Heaven, and many others that I just can't think of right now...
