Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

Platform: NES

I must admit, it took me a good few years to admit that I actually like this game. Twenty years, in fact.  I recently got into playing it again, and I actually enjoy it.  This is the Zelda game that many fans of the series are divided about.  You’ve got a bunch of fans on the left saying that it’s awful because it plays nothing like the first game, but then you also have a bunch of fans on the right who really enjoy the side-scrolling and levelling up system that has been introduced.

Mario Kart Wii – Weeeeeeee!

Platform: Nintendo Wii

This game was the main reason that I re-purchased a Nintendo Wii having traded my first one in for a PS3 (shame on me).  So why did I fork out over £100 for a system just to play this game? Read on.

The game comes with a free wheel you use to direct your kart around the track.  It is all about the wheel, for if it was to respond poorly to the Wii’s sensors, then the game would be a flop.  Luckily, the wheel works wonders as you place your Wii remote into the centre of it.

Double Dragon

Platform: Game Boy

If you are lucky enough to own a Nintendo 3DS, you may have picked this game up from the eshop.  That is certainly what I did, and after playing it for a few hours, I can certainly say that it feels very outdated.  It just appears to be very sluggish, and whilst this is understandable for a game that was released in 1990, it does make you realise how far gaming has progressed in the past twenty years.

Okay, so the game itself is a beat-em up side-scroller. It  is very similar to the Double Dragon previously released on the Nes, however all of the moves are available to your fighter right from the start, making the game more enjoyable and easier to get into right from the word off.  A downside for me is that the game only has a single player feature, which feels like a waste, because the boss fights can get stupidly hard and you feel yourself crying out for some back up.

Coupe’s Corner might be going through some changes.  I am interested in making this website as popular as ever.  To do that, I need dedicated people to write for me.  It will be unpaid, but that could change in the future if things start to become a success.  So what I ask is that you don’t take it too seriously, have fun with it whilst at the same time getting your work seen by others.

If people are interested, then I will pay for this site and massively improve the layout.  If you’re into the idea, then drop me an email: pythonesque@hotmail.co.uk

Have fun.

Starring: River Phoenix, Kiefer Sutherland, Corey Feldman, Will Wheaton, Jerry O’Connell

Director: Rob Reiner

Year: 1986

This film allows you to reflect on your childhood.  You’ll feel yourself looking back on the good times and the bad times with help from the films heartwarming characters and plot.  You become attached to the characters as soon as the film starts.

The characters are a bunch of school kids who set off together on an adventure to find a dead body.  Does that sound like fun?  Well, it was certainly eventful enough for them, as they spent Labour Day Weekend in their town of Castle Rock doing just that.  The film focuses around one main character in particular, who goes by the name Gordie (Wheaton).  He is having a hard time at home as he and his family are struggling to get over the death of his older brother, so he decides to spend the weekend with his friends.  Present day Gordie narrates the film, voiced by Richard Dreyfuss and it has a bit of a ‘Wonder Years’ charm to it, which I like a lot.  The narration really helps draw you in.  Gordie’s friends are troubled Chris Chambers (Phoenix), Teddy Duchamp (Feldman) and Vern Tessio (O’Connell).  They each have some sort of background story, mainly to do with hurt or abuse, and they find comfort in each other.

Platform: Atari 2600

Remember the Atari 2600 joystick?  It was a stick that stuck up in the middle of the pad, with a red button in the corner.  It actually looked rather rude if you’re a pervert like myself.

You will find yourself frantically pulling and pushing the stick in all directions as the sweat builds up on the palms of your hands during this game.  It is basically a button basher, and there isn’t really much skill involved at all.  You move your boxer around the ring using the stick, and you punch your opponent with the red button.  Each boxer has four moves, and they are all the same for each.  Block, punch with other hand, punch forward and punch upward.  I was quite insane during my younger years, and I often ended up putting my mouth around the stick, using my teeth for extra grip to give my hands a rest whilst they got tired.  Don’t try that at home kids.  Tastes revolting.

This is a fresh installment to the Sims series, and in a way it breathes a new leash of life into a game that was starting to get old.  The big question is, will The Sims fans like it?

If you enjoyed playing The Sims just for building houses and neighbourhoods, then you will be disappointed with this latest offering from EA.  You cannot build anything on it, all you can do is furnish the interiors, but there isn’t a great deal of furniture to choose from.  This in itself for me was a little bit of  a let down, but I hated building in the Sims anyway for I was never any good at it, so it’s not something that has totally ruined the game for me.  Read the rest of this entry »

I have been a fan of the Sims since Sims 1 all of those moons ago.  This addition to the series however is the best one.  So far.  EA pump out more Sims titles than I have hot dinners, so I say ‘so far’ because you just know they’ll soon release another one *cough cough* Sims Medieval *cough cough*.

I say it’s the best one, but what I mean by that is, it is the best one in terms of gameplay.  It is definitely not the best one when it comes to objects and building materials.  The game feels empty.  It’s as though they released it in this empty state on purpose so that they could put what was missing inside millions and zillions of expansion packs.  To me, that makes EA a bunch of money robbing scoundrels.  But it also tells me that I myself am stupid enough to go and buy them.  I must confess to only having one expansion pack for this game so far, but I will review those separately.  For now, let’s just concentrate on The Sims 3, on its own, in its entire naked form.

This, apart from Road Rash, is one of the best motorbike racing games I have ever played!  I always find the newer motorbike games for these modern-day consoles hard to control, and easy for your rider to fall off…maybe that’s just because I’m a girl.  This game was simple in comparison.

There are two modes in this game.  One is Arcade and the other is Original.  If you want to just quickly dive in there and play through swiftly, then Arcade Mode is for you.  If however you fancy getting your teeth into something, then original mode it is, which in other words means ‘career mode’.
