All About Kryztfr
Growing up in the '90s has its perks, one of it is growing up with the awesome Playstation (PSX) and playing the "firsts" in several series. And let me tell you, one of the best series I've played is the Megaman Legends (MML) series. But guess what?
Servbot Sad D:
After year of waiting. They cancelled the third installment of the game last July. Here's why I'm outraged (warning: SPOILERS)
I was still little when I played the first Megaman Legends. I was noob and it took me months to get to the Main Gate, after which, I didn't even make it to Juno (final boss.)
That's why I was dizzy with joy when I finally finished it when I was older. The epic countdown to destruction, the mystery involving Trigger's (Megaman's) past, the cuteness of Data being all techy and stuff. It all amounted to one of the best game endings I could remember – filled with action, anticipation, surprises and questions. Questions that begged for a sequel.
It was only this year that I discovered that they DID release MML2. I probably never heard of it because by the time it was released, I was already engrossed in JRPGs and Strategy games. I quickly hunted down a copy and started playing it. I still haven't finished the game because I've been busy with work, and an MMO. And that incessant urge to kill that giant golden bird over and over in one of the ruins.
But even so. I've read the story, I've seen the guides. I've watched the clips. The ending is even better than MML1. It's a total win. It's epic. IT'S A FIRETRUCKING CLIFFHANGER.
Here's what I've seen: Megaman beats the final boss in space. He crashes to the moon. The two rival families, the Bonnes and the Casketts, team up to save him. That includes the game's two love interests, who are both genius engineers, helping each other build a rocket to the moon. /END SPOILERS
Yes, they left it there. I can't get myself to consider it open-ended. I see it as not-ended.
There is now an international effort to make Capcom realize that cancelling it was a mistake and that there IS a fanbase. Please follow these steps to show your support, it will only take a minute or two (most probably five):
- Go to Capcom-Unity
- Follow the steps in Signing Up
- Go back to the site
- Click the Green Plus Mark that will add you to the Devroom
- Then the Box above it "Become a Servbot"
You can also help by liking the Facebook page: Get Me Off the Moon, Its the effort's HQ on Facebook and they are currently trying to gather 100,000 likes. (As of press time, they're at 46,966)
Let's try to save a great series. It's worth a shot, right?

With that post title, you're probably expecting to hear a sizzling sound followed by the scream of a gamer who just found himself with a new paper weight. Or a brick to hit his head with. But the outcome surprised me as well as my gamer cousins.
My little old Neo B3360 netbook was able to run the Sims 3! It worked even faster than I expected. Faster than Sims 2, even. I couldn't believe EA-Maxis would be able to make a game much more beautiful than Sims 2 but works on low-end machines and runs quickly. As expected, the game is great, I'd prolly give it a 8/10. It feels lacking in the build/buy mode and such. I'm about to buy the Expansion Packs which would definitely add loads of things to do and a whole slew of things to buy.
Do you know what's more surprising? Let me explain. We have three laptops at home. My cousin's (Aaron) whose graphics card and large laptop are better than ours; mine, the average Neo Netbook; and his sister's (Eryka) whose older netbook is equipped with an even older graphics card. When she plays the GBA emulator, it lags.
Yes. GBA EMULATOR. LAGS.
But surprise surprise! She runs the Sims 3 the fastest, I lag a bit and Aaron's plays the slowest. Odd right? I still haven't figured it out. They both have XP and I have 7, Aaron has the fastest CPU speed and we're all using the same settings. I'll get to the bottom of this someday. As of now, its game time!
These are my opinions regarding the news: Games are a Form of Art!
And my reaction to that? One word.. FINALLY!
Since I was a kid, I always loved to play video games. From the Rockman in Famicom to FF XII in PS2, my love for games never died out. And as a gamer, I feel very defensive when people who don't play criticize the effects of games have on children. I've been wanting people to recognize games for what they really are: Interactive entertainment which stimulates active thinking and creativity.
I mean, look at me. Games have been a significant part of my life. They keep me entertained. I've played everything from the friendly Sims series to extremely violent ones like the GTA games. I've saved the world with cuteness in Loco Roco and I've seen it rain blood in The 3rd Birthday. But you don't see me running around and shooting people nor do I stop and bounce around like a fat ball of cuteness. I have a stable job which needs creative and critical thinking.
And after long years of raging and begging for recognition, I can finally celebrate the news that people are actually considering games as a form of art. I can finally sit down and sip tea while staring at my computer, admiring the beauty of the latest games I bought. I can even visit the Smithsonian American Art Museum next year and admire some of my favorite games. Hm? Why? Because next year, they're going to have an exhibition on The Art of Video Games~ Yay!
These are all good news to me.. And I think its about time they did all these. The gamer generation is growing up. The guys who grew up with Famicom are, I think, around their late 20's or early 30's by now and my generation who grew up in the PS, XBOX and PS2 are starting to become adults. Time will come when parents will actually encourage their children to play games and console wars are as important as political ideas.
