Weekly Flashback: McDonald’s Treasure Land Adventure

Sega Genesis

 
“Corporate Deathburger – Ronald McDonald!” – MDC
 

Every flashback I’ve done so far has been for nostalgic games that I liked (except for that conniving StarTropics)

What I originally wanted to do with these was blog about older, shitty games. They had to be old and especially stupid. I figured: the shittier – the funnier . .

Well, after playing this fucking treat, McDonald’s Treasureland Adventure, I checked my blood pressure and decided to finally write about a truly shitty game for once. A mistake, maybe.

I realized that shittier doesn’t equal funnier at all. It usually just equals shittier. One minute this game has me laughing like a mongolian idiot at how ridiculous it is — the next i’m spit-yelling at everything in my living room. My iced tea — out the window.

Battlefield 3 Alpha Gameplay

So it turns out that a bunch of cockers over at the Youtube group “YourGamingTeam”, have finally done what we all knew would happen:

Break their non disclosure terms of revealing information about the BF3 Alpha build and upload walkthroughs of as much as they possibly could.

Prototype 2 “Homecoming” Trailer

 

Courtesy of Gametrailers.com, we now have a new trailer for Prototype 2.  I didn’t play a whole hell of a lot of the original, but I really feel interested to play this one for some reason.  I think it’s pretty badass that you’re antagonist is the protagonist from the first game… dammit, so I AM gonna have to go play through it before I play this…

Yet another game I don’t have time for!

If you havent seen the original trailer for this game yet though, you can check it out here

GoldenEye Reloaded Screens leaked

So Comic-Con is right around the corner, and news of a new James Bond game from Activision has been floating around for a little while now.  Exactly what that game will be is technically still up in the air, but with the leak of all these juicy photos of what appears to be an HD remake of GoldenEye for the Wii… we can be pretty sure that those fat cats at Activision are really planning on announcing GoldenEye Reloaded.

The Dark Knight Rises Teaser Trailer

 

Yeah I know, we cover videogames, and videogame topics here at Ganon Fodder.

I really just couldnt help myself about posting the new trailer for The Dark Knight Rises, since I’m pretty pumped about it.  Jordan made a joke about the originality of the name, but then again he also didn’t like Arkham Asylum (aka not a Batman fan).

Not much happens in this that we hadn’t already guessed, but you can clearly see that Batman is about to get his ass HANDED to him by a towering Bane.    Also it’s just a teaser…

Just hearing the dialogue with the subtle music in the background has whet my appetite.  Bring it on Chris Nolan, the contents of my wallet are yours!

The Feud Continues: Unofficial MW3 website redirects to Battlefield3 website

 

It seems the FPS supernerds of the world will forever be caught in the tired, old game of King of the Castle. Pretty inevitable, pretty obvious. Especially when it comes to Call of Duty VS Battlefield.

ZZzzZzz. . .

Activision (MW3) has filed a complaint with the National Arbitration Forum and wants transfer of ownership of a domain name. It seems that a very popular unofficial/parody Modern Warfare 3 website is redirecting itself to the official Battlefield 3 site (UPDATE: it is currently “under siege” and not redirecting anymore).

Activision is assuming that this is in retaliation to issuing the unofficial site a take-down notice. They previously sent the notice because they claimed the site  infringed on copyright laws, seemed to be making commercial use of the domain name (with ads)  and also because they probably just didn’t want shit to be leaked or talked about (made fun of) by these lifeless megadweebs, months before the games release in November of this year.

Boring. . . Funny “retaliation”,  although I’m sure Activision wouldn’t give a shit about the redirecting if the domain name wasn’t modernwarfare3.com and clearly popular because of it, but who isn’t tired of talking and hearing about these two games in the same sentence. . .

Terraria: Day Two

Note: Check out part one of our Terraria diary here.

So we knew that building shelter was going to be our main focus.  We also knew that we could dig and gather resources to make better tools and weapons – we just didn’t have a clue as to exactly what we could make.

We started building the inside of our shelter – all the while expanding outward.  Our shelter was now turning into a house, but we had ambitions for a large scale castle… clearly.  We put up walls, torches, tables, doors, everything people would need to call their house a home.  Suddenly we were alerted, “Guide has arrived!”.  We had our first visitor!  The Guide offered us some assistance, and told us what we could craft with the items we currently had.  He was kind of dink, but we decided to let him stay in our house.  Only 1 night after, we had a Merchant appear, and was interested in selling us items!  We finally had a use for the gold we found from destroying green slimes!

Duke Nukem Forever PC Review

First of all, It’s only suiting that my review of Duke Nukem Forver is late.

To those of you living on Mars, Duke Nukem Forever was in development from 1996 until it was released in 2011 (Although to be fair, im sure even Martians know this).

I remember everyone debating the possibility of the game being bad, but I kept saying “Even if it IS bad, it’s Duke friggin Nukem.  I know that I’m gonna like it regardless”; I had no idea what hot water I was getting myself into.

Weekly Flashback: Blackthorne

BLACKTHORNE (SNES)

Screw World of Warcraft. Yeah, your eyes aren’t “betraying” you (get it? you better not.)

I said screw it! I meant it, too. And furthermore, I really meant “Fuck it!”. Old-school Warcraft was cool.
Well, lets not use the word ‘cool‘ if we’re being honest. Lets use ‘fun‘.

This “World of Warcraft” is a world of ancient, Chinese pecker-bum torture. Watch as this motherloving substitute for the great outdoors, the trees and the grass, devours the brains of our socially challenged. Dear, Blizzard Entertainment. What the hell do you want with the dumb-brains you’re harvesting? They’re dumb brains! Well, by the time your game is done dinking them mightily, they are.
Your true greatest accomplishment? I think you know full well. We ALL know! Don’t we?! WHO’S WITH ME?! CHARRGGEE!
