Well since i am currently plagued by 3 little tortures who are doing their damndest to make sure i am up before 7 i suppose i could start a blog because that’s what all the cool cats are doing.
So for those who don’t know my I am Martin, a young 300lb 16 year old boy from Ballymoney Town, Northern Ireland just across the water from England and across the border from
I am a huge gamer and currently own a PSP, PS2, Wii, DS Lite,DSi and 3Ds for the most part I am a Nintendo fanboy but I have deviated before. My first console was my grandmother’s SNES which I played the hell out of we played Donkey kong country and Super Mario world all the time while I enjoyed LoZ ALttP and Super Metroid and Killer Instinct and Rival Turf and Secret of Mana and a lot of other cool games. When I was about 4 my brother got an N64 and we played the hell out of Goldeneye and Killer Instinct gold (a game I still love playing to this day) when I was 5 I got myself a PS1 and enjoyed Crash Bandicoot and Spyro as well as Yu-Gi-Oh forbidden memories for quite some time till I was 7 and got a PS2. I’m glad I got my PS2 as it introduced me to my favourite game series, Ratchet and Clank a series I still go back and play today it has cool weapons and great level design great atmosphere and actually good voice acting plus it’s a decent challenge without being ridiculous (exception goes to Emperor Otto from size matters who is a complete asshole) and it has tons of replay value with every game having a “Ryno” Variant (Rip Ya a New One) that costs a crapton to buy as well as upgraded forms of your weapons and more stuff requiring tons of cash this is made easier by challenge mode which makes the game harder but gives you more bolts and I have personally played through challenge mode on R+C 2 a total of 14 times (it counts for you).
As well as those I also enjoyed the Tony Hawk’s series (yknow before it sucked) and played Underground and American wasteland quite a bit i also enjoyed Yu-Gi-Oh Capsule Monster Colliseum and Duelist of the Roses which were quite unique I thought plus there was FFX which was great fun too. I also occasionally went through the bargain bin and found some cheap games to try out like Zone of the Enders ( a decent Mecha game by Konami) and Malice (a fairly unique platformer) as well as replaying all my old PS1 games.
Sadly all good things must come to an end and most of my Ps2 games don’t work fully anymore I think this is mostly due to me mistreating the games when I was younger as any newer games I get on amazon or ebay work fine the only game that work 100% are Tony Hawk’s American Wasteland and MMX8 and Shadow the Hedgehog while some like R+C 3 and FFX work partially.
I treat my wii with much better respect now I’m older and wiser currently my library consists of Super Mario Galaxy 2, No More Heroes and NMH 2, Punch Out!!, Guitar Hero warriors of Rock, Brawl, Mario Kart wii, Tatsunoko VS Capcom Ultimate All Stars, and Worms Battle islands as well as Xenoblade Chronicles a brilliant RPG I would recommend picking up if you have a wii though it is quite scarce now (It only came out in Europe and Japan until finally after enough nagging it came out in the USA as short print so it might be hard to find) I also have LoZ Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess. As for downloaded titles I have Megaman 9 and 10, Castlevania 3 Dracula’s curse, LoZ Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask, Secret of Mana and the phoenix wright trilogy all of which I enjoy playing in fact I consider Ocarina of Time to be one of if not THE best game of all time.
My DS Library is mostly pokemon related with Diamond, Platinum, Blue Rescue Team, Explorers of darkness and explorers of sky, White, Black 2 and Ranger, Guardian Signs I used to have SS and I enjoyed it but I traded it in for a discount on White (though if I had known B/W 2 would be coming out soon after I wouldn’t have bothered)
Other than that I also have New Super Mario Bros, Plants VS Zombies, Dragon Quest VI, Sonic Chronicles the Dark Brotherhood Yu-Gi-Oh World Championshio 2009 (I feel it’s the weakest in the series I still go back and play 08 and I still love to play 2010/11 but I feel no desire to replay 09) and Finally Bleach, The 3rd Phantom (a surprisingly good Anime based game which is pardon my pun a rarity to come by honestly it’s a decent SRPG nearly identical to fire emblem though with some changes such as a Type system of Power,Speed,Tech used instead of the weapons triangle and skills being used as well as spiritual pressure determining how you do against certain enemies and bankai)
My 3ds library is limited for the moment with only MK7, Street Fighter IV and Sonic Generations though I hope to get Fire Emblem awakening and maybe a few others soon for my birthday.
My PSP library is fairly limited too with Tag Force 3,4,5 Ratchet and Clank size matters, Dissidia 012 and FFIV The complete collection.
I love playing Team Fortress 2 at the weekends (granny has a stronger laptop mine cant run it properly) and I really like playing as each class though my most gameplay time is apparently with Demoman according to the in game stats while second is scout and least played is pyro I enjoy all the game modes like Versus Saxton Hale, Mann VS Machine, TF2 x10, Jailbreak and normal game modes.
I am a huge RPG nut and I love the original Final Fantasy series having played 1-10 excluding 9 and completed 1,2,4,6,7,8,10 I also enjoy the dragon quest series of games and the mana series of games and I already mentioned Xenoblade Chronicles and Bleach the 3rd phantom I also enjoy Fire Emblem. I haven’t personally played any WRPGs but if I had the chance to play say Skyrim I definitely would. I also want to play Legend of the Dragoon, Skies of Arcadia, Baten Kaitos, Tales of Symphonia and the Golden Sun series someday.
I am a fan of some anime specifically Digimon, Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh and a couple of others I really enjoy digimon and think it’s awesome and in no way a pokemon rip off. The designs are really epic (Greymon>>>> Charizard) and I enjoyed the first 3 season of the anime very much (Adventure, Adventure 02 and Tamers) While data squad isn’t that bad either. I haven’t seen every episode ever but I have seen most of pokemon (ok I lied I HAVE seen every episode of D/P saga but not the rest) and ive seen most of the movies and enjoyed them with Spell of the Unown being one of my favourites though Lucario and the Mystery of Mew is a close second.
I haven’t seen ZeXal but ive seen every episode of the other 3 seasons of Yu-Gi-Oh and 5Ds is my favourite. And I’ve seen a few episodes of Clannad and really enjoyed it and really must get around to watching the rest of it.
I currently have a windows vista laptop that can run most things well but nothing too powerful it can emulate the DS effectively and anything below it (basically NES, SNES, Genesis, N64,Ps1, GBA and DS) I play Pokemon Online quite a bit and use Devpro too since I like it better than DN. Other than that I just surf the web most of the day and play videogames watch a bit of TV occasionally.
I mentioned 3 tortures at the start well those would be my nephews aged 1,4 and 6. why did my big bro have to have children? *sigh* well anyway they got booted from their house cuz it was being sold by the landlord so they need to stay with us for awhile (a week, 2 weeks max) sadly this means my little nephews are going to come into my room constantly and annoy me and never leave me alone not to mention put a lot of stress on my parents and me and they woke me this morning at 6:30 and probably will try to do the same again tomorrow. A growing boy needs more than six and a half hours of sleep dammit!
I recently finished school and will be going on to tech in September. Tech is short for Technical institution and it’s basically College or IDGAF school it’s for the people who are only good at like one thing and give up on juggling half a dozen school subjects. I’m going to do a course in ICT and computing hopefully moving into game design (maybe work for a company or maybe freelance who knows?) but yeah I recently finished exams and did pretty shit I think.
Physics was a nightmare I couldn’t remember any of my equations and shit
Chemistry was alright but a bit long winded
Geography was alright but it could’ve gone better
Business Studies was fine
ICT Was fine
R.E Was Fine
Maths Was fine
English was fine
And that’s about it if I get good enough grades I can move on to tech.
So that’s my first blog post I guess. I’ll update when I feel like it or when/if anything significant happens.
