The NES worlds in Videoland are Bayouland (The Adventures of Bayou Billy), Castlevania, Dragon’s Den (Dragon Warrior), Excalibur (Wizards & Warriors), Final Fantasy, Kongoland (Donkey Kong), Hyrule (The Legend of Zelda), Megaland (Mega Man), Metroid, News World (Paperboy), Mount Icarus (Kid Icarus), Tetris, Puss ‘N Boots (Puss ‘N Boots: Pero’s Great Adventure), Nottingham (Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves) and Punch-Out!!

CRUSADERS For The Future (video game first-look)

 

Hello, this is Chris M. and I am a working student at SEEDS For Autism. I have been working on a dream project for a new video game concept that I hope to get made soon. I thought I would like to share this project of mine to our blog followers. So Here it is.

My game will be an Open Action Role-Playing Game called “Crusaders For The Future” which will hopefully come to new-generation consoles such as the upcoming PlayStation 5 and Xbox Two. The game will center on certain individuals who can summon the powers of these god-like holy warriors called Crusaders and must band together to save their homelands from an evil group who are bent on stealing each Crusader’s power for their own purposes.

Each Crusader is inspired by real-life historical warrior legacies. Here are the primary types of Crusaders so far that will appear in the game:

White Paladin Knight,

Blue Shieldmaiden,

Gray Asgardian Viking,

& Red Lion Samurai.

The main protagonist of the game’s story is Josiah Ember, a coming of age boy who becomes the newest avatar of the legendary White Paladin Knight gifted to him by the Knight’s spirit that recognizes his noble-hearted power.

This game is a work-in- progress, so I hope to add more details in the near future as well as find a game development studio that will collaborate with me on my project. I hope our blog followers will want to try it one day.

Mega Man: Legends(Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review Mega Man: Legends for the PlayStation 1. The story timeline in this game takes place around 80XX which is sixty thousand years after the events of the classic Mega Man game series. Around that time, the world was mostly covered in water, save for several islands as well as some ancient ruins that are located either in the ocean or on the islands themselves.

 

The story setting in this game takes place on Kattelox Island. The locations on Kattelox Island that you visit are Kattelox City’s Cardon Forest/Market Street/Junk Shop(South), DownTown/Library(Central), UpTown/Museum/TV Studio/Hospital/Boat House/Lake Jyun(West), Old City/Main Gate ruins(East) and Clozer Woods/Bank/Police Station/City Hall(North).

 

The main protagonists are MegaMan Volnutt (Main Hero)(Digger: adventurers that explore ancient ruins), Roll Caskett (Engineer)(Spotter: an adventurer’s assistant who alerts said Diggers to oncoming dangers), Barrel Caskett (Roll’s grandfather)(Veteran Digger) and Data (a Robotic Monkey/MegaMan’s faithful companion).

 

The main antagonists are MegaMan Juno (MegaMan’s evil twin) as well as a family of pirates called the Bonnes which consist of Tron Bonne (Engineer), Teisel Bonne (Leader)(Tron’s big brother), Bon Bonne (a mechanized infant)(Tron’s little brother) and the Servbots (41 indestructible midget robots created by Tron Bonne).

 

The vehicles used by the protagonists in this game are comprised of an explorer’s van, an explorer’s boat and the Flutter (MegaMan’s personal AirShip).

 

The vehicles used by the Bonnes in this game are comprised of Ferdinand (Tron’s OctoRobot), MarlWolf (Teisel’s ultimate digging machine), Balkon Gerat (the Bonne’s mechanized Sea Serpent), Theodore Bruno (the Bonne’s mechanized Giant), Focke-Wulf (the Bonne’s mechanized Dragon) and the Gesellschaft (the Bonne’s Personal WarShip).

 

In conclusion, I found this MegaMan game to be one of the most highly challenging RPGs in the entire history of MegaMan.

History of the Playstation

Image result for sony playstation history

While I’ll always remain a loyal Nintendo fan I am also a big Sony fan as well, and today I am going to tell the history of the Sony Playstation brand. It all dates back to 1986 when Nintendo and Sony had a joint venture. Nintendo had already been producing floppy disk technology to compliment cartridges that they had been planning to use for the Family Disk system. Nintendo had approached Sony about making a CD based add-on for the SNES titled either the Playstation or SNES- Cd. Sony had even planned on developing an SNES compatible console, that would play not only SNES cartridges but CD ROM ones that Sony would develop as well.  

The product nicknamed The PlayStation was set to be announced at The Consumer Electronic Show in 1991. However Nintendo decided to pull out of their deal with Sony and instead decided to partner with Phillips. Nintendo would eventually partner with Philips to develop the Philips CD-I. After the falling out between Sony and Nintendo they had briefly considered partnering with SEGA to develop a stand alone game console, but that never saw the light of day. 

In 1993 Sony began to rework the Playstation to target a new generation of hardware and software. The Playstation was ahead of it’s time with the hardware. For starters the system used Cds instead of cartridges. The system also used full motion video with a lot of its games giving them more of a cinematic feel. The controller for the system was different than any of the other video game controllers. For starters, the controller’s d-pad was different: the d-pad for the PSone used four directional buttons. The buttons on the controller were also different as well. The buttons on the controller were a green triangle, a red circle, a blue cross, and a ping square. The controller also had an L1 R1 button and L2 and R2 buttons.

On December 3rd, 1994 the Playstation launched in Japan. On September 9th, 1995 the Playstation launched in North America, and September 29th, 1995 the Playstation launched in Europe. The Playstation was immediately a success. In North America the system sold 800,000 units within 4 months. The Playstation launched with 10 titles which were Battle Arena Toshinden, Espn Extreme Games, Kileak: The Dna Imperative, Nba Jam Tournament Edition, Power Serve 3d Tennis, Raidne Project, Rayman, Ridge Racer, Street Fighter The movie the game and Total Eclipse Turbo. The launch price for the Playstation was $299 US.
