Remembering Sephiroth’s Crazy Ass Super Nova

August 3rd, 2014 by

This was it – Final Fantasy’s jump-the-shark moment – where the level of drawn-out, over-the-top, masturbatory animation sequences reached it’s planet-popping zenith. Destroying the solar system to reduce the party’s HP by a percentage less than 100%? Yeah, buddy.

The entire game builds you up to this moment, priming you with extravagant and increasingly ridiculous summon spells; conditioning you – nay – lubing you – to receive the biggest, most unnecessarily dramatic attack from one of gaming’s most infamous final forms.

An interesting bit of trivia: Japan’s Super Nova sequence was a quite a bit more modest, by a clean minute-and-a-half-or so:

Evolution of the Nintendo Controller

Nintendo has always been a risk-taker when it comes to their controllers, something this video catalogs beautifully. A PlayStation or Xbox version of this would be pretty boring by comparison.

The Honest Game Trailer Minecraft Deserves

July 17th, 2014 by

Hey, I love Minecraft as much as the next kid, but this shit is funny.

Smosh Games puts Minecraft to the flames in their latest from the Honest Game Trailers series, poking fun at all its ridiculous quirks with lethal levels of hilarity.

Viva La France! Louffy’s Rose Wins EVO 2014! (USF4)

July 14th, 2014 by

Rose mains rejoice! Europe’s first ever SF4 EVO winner, Louffy (Luffy?) fought his way out of the loser’s bracket to take down Bonchan’s Sagat and claim the title of 2014 Ultra Street Fighter IV Grand Champion. See the final showdown play out in this video.

For me, it’s a bittersweet victory. As a Rose main myself, part of the allure of maining Rose was her niche appeal. Now everyone and their mothers will be taking her online. I expect lots of people to pick her up, and consequently, learn to better deal with her as an opponent. Still, Luffy has long been one of my favorite players, and seeing him win the biggest fighting game tournament in the world makes me happy. Warm and fuzzy, even.

Interesting bit of trivia: Luffy uses a PS1 controller instead of the customary fight stick.

Super Easy Mode

July 11th, 2014 by

So yeah, the video’s old as piss but who cares. It’s still funny! It hasn’t depreciated in value just because millions – nay, bajillions - have already seen it.

Punch-Out, Battletoads, and other classic-yet-despicably-difficult games are given a “White Tanooki” mode, with mostly hilarious results. Someone’s going to hell for that last one.

Cosmo Canyon Theme (FF7) On The Uke

July 7th, 2014 by

Come mellow out to this oft-overlooked theme from Final Fantasy VII, expertly arranged for the ukelele. Maybe it’s because you never ever hear it, but this tune really brings me back, JNCOs and all.
