Video Game World Cup Submission!

Power up Players for the Video Game World Cup event hosted by Pix1001 over at Shoot the Rookie! Pix looks to create the best video game soccer team to compete against the best athletes and teams competing in the World Cup. I’m not an expert in soccer by any means, but I did play for a season in 10th grade. I’m selecting my characters based off of what I remember from those glorious days of playing Sweeper or Half-back. For official rules and to enter your characters, click here!

 

For my submission, I have selected 4 great characters that many may not have considered as great additions to the team. Let’s start off with one of my star players; Beat from Jet Set Radio!

Beat1

In the Jet Set Radio games, Beat is the lead character who rollerblades around at ridiculous speeds. His agility, speed and reaction times can greatly assist in scoring. I would put Beat at the Forward or Half-Back Position. Beat This way he can play defense or offense using his speed. Beat has tremendous Power, Above Average Technique and Outstanding Graffitti skills (I mean in case he has to tag someone lol).

My second star player shouldn’t be much of a surprise; Shadow from Sonic Adventure 2.

Shadow

Shadow is a great pick for his speed, sick moves and determined attitude. Just like with Beat, Shadow would do well as a Forward or Half-Back as he’s not likely to shy away from a rough battle with an opponent. Shadow can also hone the power of a Chaos Emerald to increase all of his abilities and senses. With Shadow, he can out maneuver players, slide through opponents and quickly shift gears to score the goal. Did I mention that Shadow can keep up with Sonic? shadow1

 

We need a great Sweeper to play defense and help out the goalie. My sweeper would be Crash Bandicoot!

Crash1

Why, you may ask? Remember Crash is use to jumping, sliding and spinning his way through different terrains and obstacles. Crash can use these abilities to block the ball when players are taking a shot at the goal. Even better, Beat can graffiti the soccer ball as one of the fruits from the Crash series and Crash’s motivation will be amplified.  It’s full proof! Crash is an excellent sweeper and will greatly help out the only character that I would have in the goal… I’ll give you a hint… BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

 

My goalie is none other than the King Koopa himself… BOWSER! Bowser1

Tell me Bowser wouldn’t be a great goalie? He takes up most of the goal by size alone, he can roar loud enough to change the direction of the ball and have you seen Bowser in Mario Tennis? This big Koopa has moves! He can dive, scratch and claw his way to protecting the goal at all costs. In a shootout situation, Bowser’s intimidation techniques alone will send the soccer players running for the hills. Bowser His corner kicks will reach the other side of the field where Shadow and Beat can capitalize and score the goal.

I think I have put together a great team of characters for Pix to choose from! Do you agree with my picks? Who would you choose? Feel free to participate in the comments and write your own submission post to the contest. Pix is accepting submissions up until July 10th!

Video Game Challenge: Day 7, We’re Robbing A Bank!

Day 7: You’re in a Western video game and need to rob the bank, which video game character will be your partner?

Listen team… your mission should you choose to accept it is to assist me with robbing the bank! Upon successful completion we will split the take and go our separate ways. Are you in?

 

Sombra: I’m in.

Walugi: Waluigi’s the winner!

 

Yea, that sounds about right. My name is Luna and I’m a fugitive. I’m on the run from some very vile people who think that they are the only ones who can make the rules… AND BREAK THEM. But this story isn’t about me… it’s about the bank in Blackwater that is said to hold over 3 million dollars in cash and gold. The life of a fugitive is costly with our weapon repairs and need to always spend dough at the card tables. Link is one of the bounty hunters on to me and we must strike before he has a chance to stop us.

The Team: The upside of being an outlaw is that you can easily find others to help you rob a bank. I’ve found 2 great helpers: Sombra and Waluigi.

sombra

Sombra is an expert in stealth and hacking abilities. She will be able to get us into the safe undetected so that we can unload the cash. She’s pretty handy with a pistol in case we have a shootout with the Sherrif. Yes, I realize she’d probably be better at robbing a modern bank with her hacking abilities, but I still have faith in her with the Western bank!

waluigi

Waluigi… well let’s face it… he’s the distraction. While Sombra and I are loading up the getaway vehicle, Waluigi will be tasked with watching the perimeter… then a cleverly planted alarm on his back pocket will sound forcing everyone to converge on his position. By the time Waluigi is captured, me and Sombra will be out of dodge and heading to safety. No worries, I will be sure to put some money on Waluigi’s jail account. I’m pretty sure his brother Wario will find a way to break him out anyway… I just really need a distraction haha.

Tomorrow’s Question:

Day 8: What’s your favorite video game pet?

Who would you use to rob a bank? How much time do you think Waluigi will be facing? Let’s talk partners in crime!

Video Game Challenge: Day 4 – Toughest Bosses!

Happy Monday Players! It’s Day #4 of the GamersUnitedGG 30 Day Video Game Challenge! Yesterday we talked about our favorite sidekicks and Tails took home the crown!  Click here to read the nominees!  You can join us and read the official rules by clicking here! Power up Players for Day 2 of the 30 Day Video Game challenge!

Today’s Question:

Day 4: What was the toughest boss that you had to face?

There have been plenty of tough bosses in the realm of video games. My first experience with the Dark Souls franchise quickly showed me that the world is a horrible and dark place for gamers lol.

Scorpion Robotnik-

scorpion robo

I remember playing Sonic Spinball as a kid and getting to the Scorpion Robotnik boss. I was sooo angry because I could never beat him. I’d either  die from the poison he would spray or fall all the way back down to the beginning of the level. As a kid this really made me mad because I couldn’t beat it so I did the only thing I could think of.. I called my older brother to beat the level for me lol. Sure enough Kenny made it easy by jumping inside of the Scorpion Robotnik and hitting him in the core. Pretty soon the boss’s tail broke off and it was a matter of time before I was propelled to the next section.

 

Elite Four Pokemon Fire Red –

fire red

The Elite Four were hard for me to beat in my youth. I would try and beat them without using any revives or portions which didn’t work out too well in the beginning.

 

Jack of Blades-

JackBlades

Jack of Blades in Fable was a boss that took me a while to beat. WithFable, you can’t move as fast as you would want so when you are in the midst of a combination move, the only thing to do is try to dodge if you miss your target. I would miss and get chopped up by Jack forcing me to rethink my strategies.

 

The boss I’m selecting for the hardest in my gaming career has to be Shao Khan from Mortal Kombat 2.

shao khan

Fighting games are super fun but I have to admit that I am not good at them. When you are facing the final boss in Mortal Kombat 2, I choked and could never beat him. As with previous mentions, I simply passed the controller to my brother who finished off the villain for me. I think my problem is that as a kid I used to just press buttons to find out how to do moves. I would remember the pattern of buttons that I would press and those would be my default moves. I never took the time to go to practice or exercise modes which show you the moves list. As I got older, I started going through the tedious task and became better at fighting games. If I can take on Shao Kahn now, I’m sure I would be the victor!

Tomorrow’s Question:

Day 5: If you can have a video game weapon, which would you choose?

 

What was the toughest boss that you had to face? Have you ever beaten them? Am I the only one passing the controller to my brother lol? Let’s talk video game bosses!

Video Game 30 Day Challenge: Day 1- Gaming Heroes!

Happy Friday Players! Today is June 1st and the start of the GamersUnitedGG 30 Day Video Game Challenge! I’m super excited to answer the questions that I came up with and read the responses of anyone who wants to participate. You can join us and read the official rules by clicking here! Power up Players for Day 1 of the 30 Day Video Game challenge!

Day 1: Who is your childhood Video Game Hero?

My video game hero is Nancy Neil from Snowboard Kids and Snowboard Kids 2!

nancy1

Snowboard Kids is a snowboard racing game that debuted on Nintendo 64, where you select your character, costume and race through really cool maps. I’ve never been the best at speed, but I have always loved performing in the trick portion of the game. Nancy was always my choice and upon reading the Snowboard Kids Story, she became a character that I could relate too. While Nancy was really skilled at tricks, she was always the nice mediator of the group that everyone loved. Nancy was friends with one of the meanest characters in the game, a snob name Linda, but she was there to orchestrate and attend Linda’s birthday party.

nancy

Snowboard Kids 2 was the very first game that was mine entirely (and not for me AND my brother) which holds a special place in my heart.  In Snowboard kids 2, an alien, evil child known as Damien appears. The kids have to race Damien in the story and while he is the antagonist, Nancy tries to extend the olive branch and invite Damien to the group. She’s such a great character and I have looked up to her for her tricks, personality and all that Nancy represents. To sum up her personality Nancy is fun, genuine and friendly, traits that I think my friends would now describe me as. Thank you Snowboard Kids and Snowboard Kids 2 for having such a positive impact!

There’s a more teenage version of Snowboards Kids called SBK where Nancy is completely the opposite. She is spoiled, stuck up and conceited. I’m super happy that I grew up admiring the 10 year old Nancy!

 

Tomorrow’s Question:

Which Video Game World Would You Like To Live In? Why?

 

Who’s your childhood video game hero? Have you ever played Snowboard Kids? Let’s talk Heroes!

Aprils Question of the Month: Survive Your Apocalypse!

Power up Players for April’s Question of the Month Response, hosted by the Later Levels Blog! In an effort to get back into the swing of things, I’m diligently participating in the monthly gaming question and this month and we have a super fun one! This challenge is open to all bloggers so feel free to get involved, publish your answers and check out the other answers!

So the question this month was:

Which three video game characters would you choose to help you survive the apocalypse? The type of apocalypse and enemy you’ll encounter will depend on your birthday…

Month Disaster Date Enemy
January Nuclear winter 01-03 Sentient AI
February Asteroid 04-06 Mutants
March Flood 07-09 Raiders
April Ice age 10-11 Robots
May Volcano 12-14 Vampires
June Overpopulation 15-16 Zombies
July All-out war 17-19 Aliens
August Disease 20-21 Mother Nature
September The Rapture 22-24 Insects
October Solar flare 25-26 Graboids
November Plague 27-29 Plant-life
December Mass drought 30-31 Killer Tomatoes

To properly Answer this question, we have to find out what I will be fighting and surviving against. Based on the chart my birthday of April 26th will have me surviving in an “Ice Age” against “Graboids (remember the movie Tremors lol).” Yea, Graboids are the huge sandworms that rely on vibrations and can crash through structures and eat you. This should be fun! Let’s see who I would use!

Steve from Minecraft (The Builder/Scout/Varietyman): –

steve

Before you start laughing, think about it. Steve is very, very useful. Steve knows helpful crafting recipes and he is a master builder! Steve will be able to help build the shelter and reinforce it against the Graboids. I’d probably commission steve to make a shelter that is surrounded on all sides by a lava pit! This way, if the Graboids try and break through, they will end up fried instead. Steve is also an expert farmer and explorer so he will be able to adapt to the frigid temperatures and help build a self sustaining farm!

Pyramid Head (The Enforcer) –

pyramid head

Listen this may not seem like a likely choice but think about what Steve will be doing. Steve is going to be constructing a shelter, tools and other things which will drive the attention of the Graboids. Since they rely on vibrations on the ground to catch and kill their prey, we’re going to need a bodyguard and I can’t think of a better one than Pyramid Head. This Silent Hill Villain boosters Super Strength, Agility, Stamina, and due to his Type 2 Immortality, Durability. Pyramid Head is a great character to use for fighting off the Graboids and any other threats until our shelter is complete.

Dr. Mario (Medic) –

Dr._Mario_box_art

You can’t survive any apocalypse without a medical person on hand. Dr Mario is my pick in this band of misfits because, he has a pill for everything (I hope he knows CPR and how to bandage legs lol). Mario can also be used to help keep Pyramid Head in check. Since he is essentially created by the victim, Mario treats him like Fred from the Drop Dead Fred movie and keeps him sane and stable with his different pills (that got weird really fast haha).

Those are my picks for Surviving the Ice Age of Graboids terrorizing the planet. What 3 characters would you choose? Do you think my team can help me survive? Feel free to join in the Question of the Month and check out our blogging buddies and their responses. Let’s talk video game characters during the apocalypse!

Luna’s Rankings: Fierce, Fighting Video Game Females!

Happy Tuesday and Power up Players for this week’s Rankings Post! Upon reading several great articles by IgnitedMoth on Marie Curie, Cupcakes & Machetes Idea for the event and checking in at the Precinct1313 for This Week in Geek, I’ve decided to take part in C&M’s blogging event recognizing women in the month of March! That’s right i’s National Women’s History Month and what better way to celebrate than to have some video game tailored posts that celebrate great female characters in history! This week’s Rankings post will rank my top 5 favorite video game female characters from 5th place to 1st place! Let’s see who’s on the list!

#5 Princess Kitana –

kitana

Sonya Blade at first occupied my top spot for Mortal Kombat characters, but then Princess Kitana became my favorite. I really like how sat she is in the game and I love her fatalities with here duel fans. I started to grow even more attached to Princess Kitana when the Mortal Kombat movie came out. I loved that she was mysterious and obviously quite capable of fighting in the tournament. Mortal Kombat is one of those iconic video games from my childhood and with ever new installment, I am instantly brought back to memories of summer days with my brother and friends.

#4 Orchid –

Orchid

Orchid used to be my favorite Killer Instinct character until Glacius took that spot. Orchid turns into a Jaguar in the middle of an attack which is just cool. Orchid is strong, agile and she’s a great character to use against any opponent.Using her weapons and her innate cat abilities, I still hold a special place in my heart for her character. Killer Instinct in history provided some of the BEST in game commentaries that I can remember. From the announcer putting such vigor on the fighter’s names to the announcer screaming ULTRAAAAAAAAAA COMBOOOOOOOOO at the end.

#3 Bastet –

Bastet

Bastet is the Egyptian goddess and an assassin as far as her role in the MOBA Smite. In Smite, Bastest was on the of the first characters that I would play with and for the longest time she was my ONLY option when playing. Bastet is not only fast, she has cool moves like her Cat Claw that slows enemies, her pounce that can be used offensively and defensively and my personal favorite move, her ultimate where she releases 3 giant cats that attack their enemy. We know that I’m pretty much a cat so Bastet was and is the perfect character for me to use.

#2 Chun-Li –

Chun Li

Chun-Li was my absolute FIRST female video game character to use. Back in Street Fighter II I would use Chun-Li and Spam her Super Kicks against my brother and cousins (yes, I was that player lol). When I learned how to perform the umbrella kicks and the back flips, it was CURTAINS! Well, until my brother found my Kryptonite and starting using my character against me. For some reason, growing up if you used my same character, it would sike me out and I would ALWAYS lose. Kenny found out early how to beat his little sister when she was on a roll and I’m sure that still haunts me to this day haha.

#1 Kasumi –

Kasumi gif

Kasumi takes the crown as my FAVORITE video game female fighter due to nostalgia, style and my win rate! My first experience with Kasumi came when my brother would have his Lan Parties in High School. Me and my friends always wanted to play and one of the video games on the list was Dead or Alive 5. I prefer faster striking, agile characters so seeing the Shinobi character Kasumi immediately caught my eye. She is fast, strong and she will slit your throat with her Katana. Not too mention my friend and I would team up and beat the boys with me as Kasumi and her as Lei Fang. It was a tag team to victory and I believe Kasumi is my best mastered video game character in a fighting game.

Those are my top female fighting game characters, what are yours? Add your favorite fighting game characters to the comments so that they can be tallied and listed with the community rankings next week! Let’s talk Fiercely, Fighting Females!

  3. 3rd Place will receive a giftcard!

Challenge Prompt:

  • Week 1: January 8- January 15thYou’re designing a video game and the main character needs to be created. Describe your main character. What 3 power ups or abilities would you choose for the character and why?

Participants:

Flying Colours was the first participant to strike with the blue eyed, handsome male character who could fly!

superman
I think of a Superman type character!

I can see this character being a sort of Superhero in the video game and the added twist of him being able to transform into different people and read their minds backs up my assumption! I really enjoy comics and Superheros so I was excited about what a game with this character would entail.

 

Pix1001 from Shoot The Rookie came in to save the day with a tree hugging, environment saving, seemingly high angst character called Osha!

splatoon
I think of a cartoonish type character!

Aside from the cool name, Osha’s desription of the  “Torn jeans with big pockets for carrying stuff, short spiky hair and a T-shirt with a picture of her favourite bird on it” reminds me of a teen or young adult character that resembles a character from Splatoon! I can picture big animated features and I rebellious personality.  Pix did a fantatsic job of describing the abilities of Osha and I felt that Invincibility, Haste and Healing matched the character’s personality very well (I mean healing can do wonders for saving the planet!).

 

Daniel from Home Button was the final level in week 1’s submission and boy did he not disappoint! I really enjoyed Daniel running down the details of his character Jin Usagi in a sort of Dossier, FBI’s Most Wanted kind of fashion.

genji
I think of a Ninja type character!

Off the back I felt as if I were reading crime-fighting, assassin type game.  Jin is a trained killer (or so we believe) and he is “driven by honor, duty and loyalty” which makes him exceptionally charismatic. Daniel’s video game seems a bit darker and reminds me of the games like Metal Gear Solid or L.A Noire. I love how the main character is essentially on the run and portrayed as a high priority target.

 

All three entrants developed fantasic characters for their games and I can automatically visualize what each character might look like. Now let’s award the points for week one and don’t forget to clik on the links to read each participants’ response!

12 Days of Christmas Day 10: Gaming Closet Raid!

Happy Saturday Players! We are nearing the end of the Creative Christmas Collaboration posts set up by Kim from Later Levels! If you have been reading our previous posts, you know the drill but for anyone new to the post and the blog, you can view the official rules and participate in the remaining 2 days of the challenge by clicking here!

Today’s Topic is…

You’ve been invited to a swanky New Year’s Eve party but have nothing suitable to wear! Which video game character do you call to ask if you can borrow an outfit?

This one was a bit harder for me to think about but I did come up with and answer. I think the best answer that comes to mind is an RPG game. In Role Playing games one of the perks and appeals for me is the customization. I want to be able to make my character look, act and behave a certain way. I love being able to visit clothiers and dye shops to enhance my character’s look. Being able to mix and match styles to make an original outfit (until you see someone running around with your same costume on) makes or breaks a game for me and my friend Stephanie. Stephanie or Xsanie, introduces me to cute RPG and Anime games often.  aura  Once anime RPG game that we play is called Aura Kingdom (review coming soon). This game has dye shops and the item mall that you can use to properly dress your avatar. The clothes are bright, brilliant and bold so I would love to warp into the kingdom and select an outfit to use.

If I had to pick a person, Kasumi from Dead or Alive would be a great selection. She wears her altered Kimonos really well and I think they would be a hit for a swanky New Year’s Eve party. The cherry blossom petals, the red and white and the split all the way up her thigh.

My boyfriend probably wouldn’t approve but I’d definitely loved to borrow the outfit from her closet! Maybe drop by and have Chun-Li do me hair lol.

If it was a super formal affair I could ring up Daisy from the Mario games. This is a great idea for a few reasons; Daisy is a Princess so her closest will contain vast outfits for me to wear. A nice, long dress with ruffles seems like a fitting way to bring in the new year. Maybe I can convince Daisy to join me at the party and we can arrive fashionably late with an entrance fit for royalty.   daisy  I can see it now, the royal trumpeters will announce our arrival and we will walk in looking as elegant and as regal as possible. I’m super interested in royals and medieval nobilty that I wouldn’t mind wearing a corset and a puffy dress for an evening. Hopefully no one will trip and spill their drink on me!

Those are some of the choices that I would make for selecting a New Year’s outfit. Which video game character would you ask for help? What type of game clothing would you want to wear? Let’s talk video games!

12 Days of Christmas Day 8: Gaming Menu!

Happy Thursday Players! We are holding on strong with the Creative Christmas Collaboration posts set up by Kim from Later Levels! If you have been reading our previous posts, you know the drill but for anyone new to the post and the blog, you can view the official rules and participate in the remaining days of the challenge by clicking here!

Today’s Topic…

It’s now time to head out to the kitchen to put on your oven gloves and start preparing Christmas dinner. It consists solely of video game food; what’s on the menu?

 

Christmas dinner is going to be filled with awesome Holiday and Festive food. We have set up 2 tables, one for the adults and the other for the children that are staying with us. Let’s check out the children’s table first!

We set up the Paper Mario and Minecraft crafting services on the Children’s buffet area. Here they are able to make their own recipes such as Minecraft Cake. The child goes up to the buffett table and select the recipe of their choice… Cake! Next they select the items needed to craft the recipe for the cake we need 1 large Egg, 3 Wheat, 2 Sugar and 3 Pails of Cow Milk!  cake The buffet table starts like a conveyor belt and as each ingredient is ready, the child will press the corresponding button to add each ingredient to the mixture. After all ingredients are added, the super cooker that Santa brought us will bake up the orders in about 10 minutes! The menu will consist of delicacies such as Minecraft Cake, Pumpkin Pie and more!

 

For the adults we have a few awesome items available for appetizers and beverages! Yoshi has been out in the Mushroom Kingdom picking apples all day! The apples provided will be mixed into an adult apple cider with a touch of alcohol to make it pop! Other festive beverages will be Nuka Cola from Fallout and Juggar Nog (our liquid courage recipe) from Call of Duty Zombies juggar that gives all of our guests a buff in strength. The Anime Avatar  Chibis dropped by with some treats from the Sky Islands Resort such as the Luxury Champagne and Fried Egg Curry dishes.

For dinner, we had the Grilled Steaks and Chicken, courtesy of our Flame 1 Diamond Sword brought over this morning by “Steve!” Sure it seemed a bit cruel seeing Moomers (the cows) and the chicken duck thing getting sliced and fried all in one swing, but the char on the meats were sublime! Since it’s the Holidays, we let the Creeper down the street join us for dinner

creeper
Pssssss…. Am I late?

but his Enderman friend was a bit sketch especially when he grabbed a minecraft wrapped present from underneath the tree!

enderman
Is that yours?

 

I think the meal came together very well with the different video game dishes!

December’s Question of The Month!

Power up Players! Thank you for reading my extremely delayed response to the Question of the Month hosted by our friends over at Later Levels! Each month other game bloggers and myself answer the question posed by Later Levels or the community. It’s a great way to get involved and I’m very thankful to Kim for letting me participate! I was working on the NaNoWriMo challenge in November, so along with less blog posts, i was unable to submit my answers for the poll. I still enjoyed the question so I will post my opinion and answer here and then you all can visit the Later Levels blog to read and vote for your favorite answer!

This month’s question was submitted by : Nathan!

question

Which video game character would make the best Santa?

The first character that popped into my head instinctively wa Sonic the hedgehog. After a careful analysis of my Sonic gaming history, I’ve realized that he would make a fantastic Saint Nick! sonic santa

 

Comparison : Sonic Versus Santa

In most Sonic games, especially the early generation games, your goal was to speed through maps or “Zones” to stop the plans of the evil Dr. Robotnik or Eggman! In order for Sonic to accomplish this task, he had to find and collect the Chaos Emeralds so that he could use the powers of the united Emeralds to defeat his enemy and save whatever animals or characters that were under siege. Sonic also collected rings that allowed him to gain strength. Bam, that’s Sonic! As the games progressed, Sonic was joined by friends who would help him defeat his enemies as well.   From this analysis, I can already see great qualities that would make Sonice an excellent Santa!

 

  • Sonic is a master in searching for Chaos Emeralds! This savvy makes Sonic an excellent gift giver! He is able to search all of the best deals whether he’s at the mall or shopping online to find the gifts that everyone wants. You want an exclusive toy, if you were nice all year, Sonic will find it!
  • Sonic is super fast and as far as I have seen a tank of endurance and stamina. Sonic can definitely take on the monumental task of delivering the presents all over the world in one night. He doesn’t need magic, all he needs are a few chilli dogs and plenty of water. SonicSantaClaus
  • Sonic’s entourage of friends would definitely assist in building the slay with Tails, wrapping the presents with Amy, Stuffing the Stockings with Cream and even picking the coolest toys with Knuckles. Sonic’s friends are definitely the “Elves” and “Toyshop workers” that help Santa fulfill the wishes of all nice children!

Those are my reasons for picking Sonic the Hedgehog as the best video game character that would work well as Santa! What are your thoughts? Do you agree with my answer? Which video game character would you choose and why? Make sure to check out the poll and vote for your favorite entry by clicking Here! Let’s talk!
