How’s that for starting off a Question and Purrswer? What’s this? Well, a question and answer with a neko twist of course. Want to ask me a question? Be sure to give a comment, send me a tweet, send me a mail, comment on my Last.FM profile, PM me on my forum… The possibilities are endless. Let’s get to answering the questions I got.
#1 (Mail): Will you do a review of my Android game?
I got a mail of an Android game development studio to test a game before world wide release. I’ll get a test version and I said yes. Truth to be told, this wasn’t the first question but hey, I wanted to tell this to you guys. I’m truly excited!
To all developers who want to let your game get tested by me and have an article about it published on my blog, just contact me. We will work something out. I love to aid developers with my insight.
#2 (Twitter): Leo_Heartless asks the most disturbing game I played.
This is a tough question. This truly depends on which kind of disturbing you mean. In terms of story, I have an even tougher pick to make. There I can’t choose between Virtue’s Last Reward and Corpse Party. Both stories are creepy as in, they will get under your skin and give you that unpleasant feeling. In terms of psychological, Virtue’s Last Reward wins. In terms of horror, Corpse Party wins easily.
But you have the kind of disturbing games in the sense that they are unfinished, bad and just… well awful. And for that, I have a top 10 worst games list I ever played. But the most disturbing game… Hrm. I could say any game here. Like a Monkey Ball game. How cruel is it to put a monkey in a ball and let it race for it’s banana’s?
The issue is that I have a very wild fantasy. And that wild fantasy goes wild in a story. So, if I really had to choose… In terms of disturbing things. God Of War on the PS2. Just the hate in Kratos makes me cringe. It’s a fun game, don’t understand me wrong, but it’s just… disturbing.
#3 (Twitter): Allahweh asked me what the occasion is.
Do things need a point? … Wait, why am I even answering this question in this article? Was it one of her questions? Or was it a legit question since she didn’t know why I asked for questions on my twitter?
Am I really writing what I’m thinking or am I just doing this to be creative? I have no clue, I can’t do this joke of a thinking Neko. NEXT!
#4: (Twitter) Allahweh asks me my most fond gaming memory.
I was going to save this story for a gaming nostalgia article, and I’m still going to do that. I’m going to briefly touch upon it now. In the past, I went to the mountains with my parents and sister each summer. Those times have some amazing memories for me. Once my friends and myself destroyed a dam that stopped mountain water of overflowing some pieces of land. Hey, we didn’t know and we didn’t understand the language.
Anyways, on one of those trips, something truly magical happened. I was playing on my gameboy advance and two kids came up to me and asked if I wanted to do a Pokémon battle with them. As it still was all the rage, I said yes and we fought. It was a draw actually. Anyways, it didn’t take long for us to meet each other that evening and we started to play together.
And eventually more and more kids joined. And before I knew it, I barely had time to play games with my friends. We had a group of, I kid you not, over 50 children who brought their gameboy or psp to play together.
Interested in this story? One day I will write this story more in depth in a game nostalgia article.
#5: (Twitter) Allahweh asks me my favorite non-RPG retro game.
Let’s see. If you don’t count the Zelda games as a RPG, I pick those. The oracle games are my absolute favorites. But let’s think about this for a moment. Since some people dare to say that Zelda is a RPG. With the upgrade-able weapons and such.
In that case, my favorite has to go to a series I return to rather often. The Freddi Fish games. You didn’t see that one coming, right? You thought I was going to choose Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine or something. Nah, Freddi Fish holds more early gaming memories and I remember moments when I even had dry eyes of playing too much Freddi Fish.
I’m so glad to see the developers of that game still around and I cross my fingers that they make a new game of Freddi Fish, Spy Fox or Putt Putt any time soon.
#6 (Twitter) TheJohnCruz asks me about time machines.
Honestly, to the near future. When I have my degree. I’m truly looking forward into working as a teacher. In addition to that, then I’m finally free to that pesky homework. Agreed, I have work to do at home like eg correcting tests, preparing classes and etc. But I think I will be a bit more free.
But if reality changed, I hope that I still can write about games and still become the person I want to become. While I’m a big lover of the past, in terms of my media, I don’t want to actually go to the past.
If that makes any sense.
#7: (Twitter) Lpgardian asks me about curry.
Catnip? Wait, no. That was merely meant as a joke with my username. Don’t shoot me Q but I truly enjoy programming in Curry. No, that’s not right. And I can’t even program in Curry. What the heck am I saying?
Well, Tim Curry is a nice actor. Son of a gun! That’s not the right answer either.
Focus Jonezy. Think of the curry. If you need, become the curry… Ehrm… Let’s not become the curry. Focus… Aha! I know! The light bulb above my head just went flashing.
Curry County! …. What. No! That can’t be the answer. I’m sorry Q, I don’t get the trick in the question. I’m now going to try to get my mood up with curry ketchup on my french fries. Maybe I find out the answer then.
#8: (Tweeter) MiseryLC asks me about… ehrm…
I’m sorry. I’m not a king. I’m a cat.
#9: (Tweater) MiseryLC asks me about my future gaming plans
- Take a pound of Minecraft,
- Blend that with some Left 4 Dead 2
- Cook Bravely Default on 100°C
I can’t do this. I wanted to be a chef and serve you a great dish of the amazing games I am going to play in the near future but I didn’t find a great way to do it. Hey, at least I tried.
Anyways, most likely some games where I’m near finishing the story. Bravely Default, Zelda – Link Between Worlds, Electronic Super Joy, Left 4 Dead 2, Dust: An Elysian Trail, Delver … Yeah, tons of games.
#10: (Twitter) Lpgardian asks about the current state of affairs.
Okay, this wasn’t totally a question for the Q and A, but hey. 10 questions is a nice number.
Anyways, I’m less sick then a few days before. Yippie! I’m still extremely busy. So, yeah, articles will come less often. And some articles will be written in 5-6 times instead of the usual 1-2 times.
But I’m doing fine. I have a few obstacles in my life to beat but nothing TOO big. Let’s say my life a big challenge now and I’m fully going for it. But a fun challenge. Not that I’m depressed or anything. Just going through some rough times. You know, those times that some things just don’t seem to work. Yeah, that time.
Anyways, I’m doing fine.
Want your question in the next QandP?
Then get in contact with me. Ask me ANYTHING! Surely, I’ll answer every one in the next article. Even if it goes over 50 questions! I’ll still answer them all.
I hope everybody got the reply they wanted. I tried to be creative in some of them. As usual.
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed. And hopefully until the next meeting.
