Post by DJ »

Now video games are different than computer games because they ... because they are ... because... um. Hmmmmm.

Maybe Lee knows about this?

Kingdom Schlops II

Post by Snuffles »

Hey Lee - the new Kingdom Schlops game is out, are you going to get it? Do you think I could come over and play it with you? Let me know. Who is your favorite character in Kingdom Schlops I?

I was browsing through the Amazon reviews and lots of people seem to like it. Look at this review:

Hold on there Snuffles, not so fast. You can play the Kingdom Schlops with Lee after Lee and I play Plunder. Lee doesn't have much time to play video games anyway so I don't want you to take away from our Plundering.

Kingdom Schlops rules!

Post by Shnoodles »

Look at what Gabe is saying about Kingdom Schlops II! He seems to really like it. Are you going to get the sticker book too Lee?
I’m absolutely hooked on Kingdom Hearts II. In fact it is the first game I can think of in months that managed to pull me away from WOW. The crazy long intro period was a little hard to stomach but it had a fantastic pay off in my opinion and now I’m into the Disney shit. So far I’ve burned through about 5 of the worlds and I’m loving each one of them. I’m a huge fan of all these films so when a character like the Beast joins my party I get pretty excited. Then when I discover his super special link move with Soara where they stand back to back and the beast puts is huge paw on Sora's shoulder and gives him this reassuring look as if to say “it’s alright, we’ve got this.” Well...*Sniff*...I get a little emotional. I know it’s cheesy but I even bought the collectors edition strategy guide. The hints are nice but the game just isn’t that hard. The real reason I got it was for the sticker book it comes with. Yes that’s right, a sticker book with 400 stickers! Every time you meet a character or get an item you take the corresponding sticker off and place it next to the picture in the journal. Try to imagine a 28 year old man squealing in a high pitched voice to his wife in the other room. “Ooh honey I just met Mulan, I get to put her sticker in the journal, I GET TO PUT HER STICKER IN THE JOURNAL!”

I’m not proud.

Disney and stickers = FUN FUN FUN

Wow, Shnoodles, thanks for that post about KH2. I'm SO excited to play, you have no idea. I love those games. That's cool...I didn't realize the sticker book was so interactive, I thought it was just a bonus pack. I think I should get it too. How cool.

I will try again to beat KH1 tonight. I'll let you know how it goes.

Post by lee »

I PASSED KINGDOM HEARTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


It was so cool. I found a Keyblade I had missed earlier and then I leveled up and then I fought and fought and eventually rid the world of Heartless and found King Mickey!!

Very exciting. Now I need to get going on the next one.

I also freed 30 more dalmations. I want to go back and free them all sometime.

The ending had the really cool intro theme song (that Schlop always tried to get Dave to watch with him) only this time it HAD WORDS. It was so cool. Schlop and I were crying....Nibs was handing us tissues.

Hooray!

Sticker question

Post by Snuffles »

Lee said that I could be in charge of the stickers for Kingdom Schlops II. I really don't want to mess it up... Does anyone know where one can go to practice with stickers? Does anyone have any sticker tips? Thanks.

THE BOOK HAS ARRIVED

Post by Nibs »

Hey Snuffs...

We just got the book! The Limited Edition Kingdom Hearts Guidebook!! It's so cool. But it's BIG! I can't even lift it!! It's like the size of 12 niblets.

It's still in saran wrap. Let me know if we should open it! So exciting!!

Polar bears in video games?

Post by Petri »

That's right, crazy huh? But Tycho says it might just be true! Check it out:
I don't doubt that Master Chief will carry himself in a valiant manner. I heard that he fights a polar bear in this one, and though slow to anger ursus maritimus - the White Devil - can prove a canny opponent.
He also said this:
I perceive the concept as being mantled in a soft fur - eminently pettable.
And this:
As a mental exercise: I really like caramel, but if I had to bathe in freaking caramel and eat it for every meal and freaking wear caramel for clothes, and then go to a building made out of caramel and work with sentient hunks of caramel I may find my taste for caramel diminished.

Penny Arcade!

Post by Snuffles »

Hey guys, I think the Penny Arcade cartoons are just the best ever! I know that Lee likes them a lot too! Sometimes they have bears also:

Well, they made a 4 page comic for an upcoming game (Might and Magic I think) and they tried to cover the entire story of the game's universe in the comic. Anyways, it's pretty funny so be sure to click on these links and check it out. I like the little details - like how the guy shakes hands with the dragon. So funny!
