  • Evilbob's Daily Reviews: Mario & Luigi - Superstar Saga




    So we're back after a brief break with a great game that I doubt any of you have played, Mario and Luigi - Superstar Saga. This is a game that's somewhat similar to the Paper Mario series, but more action-oriented. You can jump to avoid enemy attacks in battle and the game has a ton of platforming elements. Though this has its drawbacks, as I'll explain.



    The story in this game is that the evil hermaphrodite (it's heavily implied) Cackletta has stolen the Princess' voice, which he/she wants to use to reactivate the Beanstar, an object that would allow her/him to rule the world with her/his penivag. Mario, Luigi, and even Bowser are pissed off (he loves hearing her scream I guess) and go to the nearby land of Beanville to save her. It's not an amazing story by any means, but it's a nice break from the typical "Bowser kidnaps Peach" plot. The story manages to remain interesting with a few twists here and there.



    The game is also hilarious. Mario and Luigi don't really talk, but they pantomime everything which can be very funny. The game also looks nice, and the music is mostly good, though there are some bad tracks. The big problem I have with this game is the control. The way this game is played, Mario and Luigi walk in a line and you control the one in front with A and the one in back with B. They each get a variety of different skills, which are all mapped to these two buttons. You switch which skill you want to use with the L and R buttons, and switch who's in front with start. Sound confusing? You bet your ass it is, and with about 10 different skills in total it's a total bitch switching positions and moves constantly. It honestly took me about 10 hours before I could get to the skill I wanted to use without fucking up, and the game is only about 12 hours long. It's hard to explain how annoying this is, but play it and you'll know what I'm talking about.



    Overall it's a great game. The game is a decent length, it's a good challenge, and it's just plain fun to play. However, the control gets really frustrating at times and parts of the game are pretty repetitive. Nevertheless, I highly recommend downloading it.

    Overall: 8.8/10

      Yeah, it's a different game. A goddamn awesome game. Though if you were playing the Mario and Luigi 2D parts they aren't that great.

  • Evilbob's Daily Reviews: River City Ransom
    by Evilbob
    Yeah we're breaking into 8 bit territory now. River City Ransom is another beat 'em up, only this one has RPG elements added to it. When you kill someone you earn money, which you can use to buy items to upgrade your stats and learn new moves. Do these upgraded stats do anything? I don't think so. Do you need the new moves? I doubt it. But still, it's a nice feature. So what's the point of this game? Well you have to rescue your *sigh* girlfriend from *sigh* a gang of thugs. There are differ...

  • Evilbob's Daily Reviews: Chrono Trigger
    by Evilbob
    I'm sure most of you have played this game, but if you haven't, go find an emulator and play it. Like right now. I don't care if your dog is shitting itself and your grandma is having a heart attack on your living room floor, this is more important. Chrono Trigger is an amazing and innovative RPG that could very easily be called the best of all time. Incorporating time travel and light sci-fi elements into a traditional medieval style RPG was a great move and it's a shame the sequel sucked...

  • Evilbob's Daily Review: Mario is Missing
    by Evilbob

    Everyone knows video games make people stupid. I mean I played them throughout my childhood and I have a 4.1 GPA, so obviously something must be done. Back in 1993 they decided to combine the most popular character in gaming (no not Bubsy, Mario) with educational content. The result was a giant failure, the game wasn't much fun and the educational content was lacking as well.

    I'm not 100% sure on the story, something about Bowser kidnapped Mario (I guess the princes...

  • Evilbob's Daily Reviews: Kirby's Adventure
    by Evilbob
    This is probably my favorite NES game. That isn't saying much though, I don't like a lot of NES games, but nonetheless it's a great game. Kirby's Adventure is a innovative platformer where you can fly and steal skills from your enemies by eating them. This gives you a ton of different ways to play through the game, which is a great feature in any game. The graphics are nice, this came out late in the Nintendo's life and it doesn't look good compared to the SNES games of the time, but ...

  • Evilbob's Daily Reviews: Kingdom Hearts
    by Evilbob
    Ok we're back after a brief break with the shittiest, most overrated game ever made. Kingdom Hearts. So what's this game about? Fucked if I know, some kid lives on an island with his gay friend, Wakka, and a bunch of coconuts. Then he ends up in Walt Disney World after tripping on some mushrooms he found under a rock. Seriously, the only way anything in this game makes sense is if you look at it as one big drug trip. So here's your heroes: Some kid with Cloud's hair and MC Hammer's pa...

    by Evilbob
    The box tries to warn you away from this game before you even play it. Two of the least intimidating "punks" ever grace the cover of this assburger. It's a game like Final Fight, only 100 times crappier. Note: The guy on the left turned into the chocolate rain guy and the one on the right was on Saved by the Bell. Where do I begin with this game? The locations you fight in are generic as all hell - a forest, mountains, city streets, a skyscraper, all been done before. The graphics are horri...
