Dudes, it was 4/20 yesterday and I got totally stoned definitely so that’s why I was late on this. Definitely that reason. Because I’m cool.
Super Mario 64 (N64): Sixth Appearance, Third Straight Appearance
Well if it isn’t Part 4 of EN64G! I know I didn’t show any of Cool, Cool Mountain (I always forget if there’s a second comma in that title, but Cool, Cool, Mountain sounds either like a weird shopping list or a list of descriptions at the world’s worst police lineup) but that’s my fault, I messed up on capturing the footage. For those of you wondering, I did go and get the “Metal Hat Mario Can Move!” star eventually, as well as MIPS, who I went and chased around because he struck my eye. That’s one great aspect of Mario 64, there are bits of the game where I am almost overcome with the desire to play, and I don’t want to stop myself for any reason.
NBA 2K15 (XBONE): Thirteenth Appearance, Third Straight Appearance
I play this game a lot, I guess. This week I figured out something that I haven’t done in thirteen weeks of play – I have yet to actually hit a buzzer-beater to win a game. I came close this week, but the ball went through the hoop with 0.4 seconds left to play. Of course, nothing came of those next .4 seconds, and of course, I won a game over a good team, but this Achievement still remains locked.
One of the few “resolutions” I set at the beginning of this year was that I wanted to get 100% of the achievements on at least one game. I have yet to do that with anything, and my strict “spend as little time in competition against other people online as possible” policy really hurts my chances of getting anything in 2K15. Maybe I’ll find another game, maybe Trials Fusion or the next game on this list, but I don’t know.
Pool Nation FX (XBONE): First Appearance
I was really happy with the way I grew up. I had a great family, an easy life, and a nice house. However, I never owned a pool table and I am forever jealous of the other children who did. I now have a virtual pool table, though, and I spent about all my time playing this free game shooting balls off the table and giggling. It’s actually a pretty good representation of real pool, and for the zero dollars I paid for it, I had a good time.
Madden 2002 (GC): Sixth Appearance, Second Straight Appearance
I traded for Mike Vick, and I think it’s gonna work out. At least, I hope it’s gonna work out. The ulterior motive I spoke about in the video involves something special about Madden 2002 – The Houston Texans. I believe that at the end of the 2001 season, the player is prompted to coach the new expansion team, and I think I will say yes. Unless something bizarre happens with the Life, of course. I did this video in post, too, and I think it works pretty well. This week will be live once again, though.
