The Madden NFL Series: It’s What’s on the Outside that Counts!

“Highest Rated Madden NFL Ever!”
This is the badge that Madden NFL 10 bears on its cover, along with the first ever dual cover athletes Troy Polamalu and Larry Fitzgerald. Maybe it is, maybe it isn’t… According to the back cover of the game Metacritic.com thinks so. But why should we care? What does that even mean? I suppose if all the other games were a 2 out of 10 and this was 3 out of 10 it’s still true right? Definitely the highest rated ever.

But why is it the highest rated ever? It might be the prettiest. The graphics are wonderful, no doubt about that – don’t remember ever seeing a football game with a presentation this well put together. Props to them on that aspect. The Conference Championship logos on the field in the playoffs are awesome, along with the Super Bowl presentation at the end of the year. Even the flyovers at the beginning of games are great; but is that what makes it the best ever? Hell, I can release my own game tomorrow, call it the highest rated ever and not be lying.

When it comes down to it, how many of us that have played through a full season, checked out the superstar mode (or what’s left of it) and tinkered around with the rest of the game have come out happy? Or even satisfied? Less disappointed than last year? I don’t see that figure being too high. I have had serious considerations of going back to Madden 09. At least I could track my greatness with the rings on the menu screen.

First thing’s first: Franchise Mode – the only reason I buy Madden… so i can lead my Chargers to NFL glory (as we’ve all seen they can’t do it themselves…). Anyways, I thought this piece of the game was pretty good – or at least on par with previous Maddens. Being able to import draft classes and scout the upcoming prospects is nice – although it seems that the only real connection the players have to their college days are their names, height and weight. Why is this? Why are things like speed lost in the transition? Players don’t get slower after they graduate… C.J. Spiller will not be running a 4.6 at the combine before the draft. The only other thing I really have an issue with is attempting to sign/re-sign players – why can’t they just state how much money they want? I’m pretty sure they don’t play this guessing game in real life… All in all, this is a pretty well rounded realistic mode though, very entertaining and includes most of the important aspects of running your team.

Superstar mode is next. Sort of. Remember the days of having a “Hall of Fame” status? what about on-field influence that changed with your play? Yeah, me too. Too bad those days are long gone, like just about every other feature in this mode. You can still import your legend from NCAA or pick a current rookie… but that’s about it. The only thing left to do is play. Literally. You are assigned a generic agent and given generic options when speaking with him. These options don’t change and can only impact your ego negatively it seems. I guess there are no “good” superstars anymore. This mode has been stripped down entirely and either needs to be rebuilt or done away with completely… don’t mock us with this overly simplistic junk.

The only other real facet of the game left untouched is the actual gameplay itself. Which all in all, isn’t that bad. If you liked Madden 07… or 08 or 09. Honestly, I don’t find it much different. The new “Pro-Tak” animations are kind of cool, glad someone over there realized that playing defense and tackling isn’t a one man job. One new feature that is terrible though is the “fight for the fumble”. Seriously? This only gets interesting if you get to be Logan Mankins and hit certain button combinations for low blows, headbutting and the occasional arm bar (only available when playing as Herschel Walker). I’m not sure it matters if you even press the buttons as the appear on the meter – the end result seems random anyway. And by random I mean the user loses 65-70% of the time. What they really need to implement is a physics engine. I may be asking too much, but that would seriously make playing a football game infinitely more realistic – which most users would consider a definite upgrade. It would be nice to beat the coverage down field for a deep ball once in a while or have a legitimate jump ball where your receiver jumps (imagine that?).

There are a lot of good things about this game, don’t get me wrong. I’m not releasing a better video game any time soon. However, for as long as this game has been produced and for as much money as it seems to rake in – being the number one selling football franchise and all – there really should be more consideration for improving how the game plays. The special effects and graphic upgrades are nice (they really do look great), but what would improve this game most would simply be overhauling the fundamentals and making it play like a real football game.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to meet with Logan Mankins on what else we can put into the fumble scrums that he won’t be sorry about.

How to Fix a Super Nintendo that Won’t Play Games

Old school gamers don’t need the latest technology to have a good time. There’s nothing wrong with an old NES, Genesis, or Super Nintendo…except, of course, for the fact that they’re about twenty years old, and electronics usually don’t last that long. The old school game consoles were made hardy, though, and even today you usually only need to do light repairs to get an old system working perfectly again.
I’ve had a SNES since the month that the thing was released, and over the years, I’ve rarely had any issues. Occasionally, though, my Super Nintendo will stop playing games, or will show garbled video on my TV instead of the game it’s supposed to show. Luckily, it’s usually just a dust contamination problem.

Here’s a quick guide to fixing an old Super Nintendo that won’t play games properly.

1. First, clean the games. If you’re having problems with just a few SNES games, consider that the contacts on the game cartridges might be dirty. Use compressed air or isopropyl alcohol to clean off the contacts of the games; avoid just blowing into them (the classic Nintendo fix). Blowing into the game cartridges may work occasionally, but it doesn’t clean out the dust and other contaminants that may be preventing the electronic contacts from functioning.

2. Clean the contacts on the SNES. By pressing in on the slot that accepts the game cartridges, you can get in on the contacts on the SNES side. Use the same tools to clean these electronic contacts out; first, go for the compressed air, using short, controlled bursts–don’t just shoot the whole bottle of compressed air into the thing, or you’ll freeze the Super Nintendo up worse. Use isopropyl alcohol for extremely dirty systems, and use some patience; give the console a few minutes before trying a game in it.

3. Open up the SNES to clear out any dust. If neither of the previous steps helped the situation at all, you can unscrew the cover of the SNES to clean out dust on the inside. Use compressed air, and be sure to ground yourself before touching any of the electronics, or you could shock them out of existence. You can try a game cartridge with the cover still off; be careful not to accidentally pull out any wires, or you’ll have a headache putting the SNES back together.

Game Review – Ken Griffey Jr.’s Winning Run

The second and final of the Ken Griffey Jr. games to be released on the SNES, Ken Griffey Jr.’s Winning Run was also the first of the four games to use computer generated 3D graphics. The game was actually developed by a British company called Rare in 1995, but due to the distinct lack of a baseball market in Britain it was never released there. Like it’s predecessor, Ken Griffey Jr. Presents Major League Baseball, it has the licence to contain all 28 MLB teams of the time but without an endorsement from the MLB Players’ Association the only player they could include in the game was Ken Griffey Jr. himself.
‘Winning Run’ is actually the name of a play, made by Griffey, in the closing moments of the 1995 American Division Series, the Seattle Mariners against the New York Yankees. Hitting to the left field for an easy run which would have tied the game, he instead decided to go for home all the way from first. He succeeded in beating the throw to to the plate, winning the game for the Mariners and allowing them to advance to the American League Championship Series.

Winning Run is one of the first games ever to use computer generated 3D graphics, and when you consider that for a moment it really is astounding how good the game looks. Rendered in full 32-bit color, the game really pushed the SNES to the peak of it’s performing power. The player models are nothing to marvel at, but the scenery certainly is. Tremendous detail has been put into the stadiums, with most of them featuring working scoreboards, and even the clouds move along the skyline in the outdoor arenas. The sound quality is also remarkable. Vendors can occasionally be heard in the stands shouting ‘Peanuts!’ or ‘Popcorn!’ and the fans even jeer insults at you if you play badly. The sound effects all sound authentic, from the *thwack* of bat connecting with ball to the *phumph* of the ball landing on grass.

Thanks to the SNES controller you have a much larger degree of control than with games in the past, both when playing in offence or defence. Despite this, the controls are never too confusing and a few innings into your first game you should have already mastered most of them. The sheer amount of gameplay you get for your money, though, is this game’s main appeal. With 5 different game modes including a Home-run Derby (pretty fitting when you consider that Griffey is one of the greatest home-run hitters of all time!) and a 162 game Season Mode. Basically, the game will continue to entertain you for years, if you let it. That said, it’s appeal to non-baseball fans will only be marginal. All else aside, though. It is easily one of the greatest sports games released for the SNES, and just scrapes full marks from me with a 9/10.

GrimGrimoire for the PS2: Video Game Review

GrimGrimoire is the first game I’ve put up on Proon. It seems like a pretty good candidate, since it’s got a very anime-ish style and storyline, is Japanese, and it’s a game which I’ve actually finished. That last bullet point is probably the most important. To be honest, I don’t finish many games; I generally get so obsessed with “playtime” and “replay value” that I progress more slowly the closer I get to the end, forming a vertical asymptote around 80% completion, or until I get a new game to play and replace it. It’s not something I consciously do it’s just the way it is ok. On the other hand, it does provide an exciting back catalog of games that I have neither beaten nor remember dating back to pre-Playstation 1 days.
Back to the game at hand. Grim Grimoire is a strategy game, with a tentative Real-Time prefix in much the same way Baldur’s Gate was Real-Time: namely, with the ability to pause whenever you want. Some may claim this isn’t truly Real-Time, although I haven’t yet encountered a nerd sweaty enough to deliberate on this point. Regardless, it is essentially a RTS, old-school PC style, with resource management and everything. It’s only one resource, and you can really only do three things with it (create buildings, units, and upgrades) but god damn it it’s there and isn’t that enough for now?!? Japan is on the cutting edge of this whole RTS phase and rest assured that in a few years they may develop far enough along to have two resources and maybe, MAYBE more than one faction. By the way, a grimoire is a magic book in case you didn’t know you stupid jackass. Go read a book on tape.

Thankfully all the passive-aggressive PC wanking is out of the way now and I can go into more detail about the game itself. The story is…alright it’s going to sound like a cross-pollination experiment between Groundhog Day and Harry Potter but just stay with me ok? Lillet Blan is a witch and she’s going to magic school YES HOLD ON and the headmaster’s name is Gammel Dore. Phew, I’m glad we got that out of the way. Feel free to laugh for as long as you need to. Tell your friends, it’s hilarious. It really is. Now that’s cleared up I can continue. She’s stuck repeating the same five days in an infinite loop. Once the midnight bells begin to sound on the fifth day, she’s shunted backwards through time and, if you listen to those crackpot physicists, space, to restart right from day one. She retains the knowledge and items she gained. That’s very important, since she goes from wide-eyed young witch to throat-stomping, face-crushing magical mastermind. Your opinion of the story will vary of course, depending on several factors such as your tolerance for derivative fantasy storytelling, but overall I’d say it’s quite good. You think you know what’s coming early on but different characters slowly reveal different colors and make the proceedings very interesting. I only wanted to shoot myself two, maybe three times during the course of the game’s story. And that’s good for something from Japan!

The gameplay is more similar to traditional RTS games than you would think at first blush. Each school has a basic worker unit that erects gathering structures on mana crystals and then harvests said mana crystals for big money big prizes I love it. Each school of magic has three grimoires, with very few parallel uses between them (for instance, the Gehennas Sorcery grimoire is solely focused on upgrading Sorcery units, while the Engraving Alchemy grimoire is used for creating Golems, the game’s long-range artillery). That keeps things interesting, and ensures that try to focus on a ‘winning combo’ as you might, you’ll find yourself making a lot of the Runes every battle. Runes, by the way, are just fancy words for buildings; they’re physical representations of your grimoires and where you summon and upgrade units from.

There’s a rock-paper-scissors mentality to the proceedings, as Glamour beats Necromancy beats Sorcery beats Alchemy beats Glamour, but one of the best parts of the game is that these are far from absolute rules; for instance, Alchemy may be strong against Glamour, but a Morning Star (an astral Glamour unit [it’s a ghost]) will tear through ranks of Alchemy units unchecked without a Homunculus there to make it corporeal. So while you may roll your eyes at the mention of a “this beats that beats that” gameplay system, remain aware that this shit isn’t absolute by any stretch. Units are interesting and diverse enough that you’ll find yourself utilizing a counter-force to what your enemy has, rather than a “supreme cocktail” of the most powerful units. At least on the more challenging difficulty levels; on Sweet or Easy, summon yourself up a few Dragons and Chimeras and go to town.

Not everything is super magical wonderful, though. I don’t expect to play DotA 7.13b on the game, but some kind of rudimentary map editor would have been nice. Perhaps not economical, given that there’s no multiplayer in place, but it would have been nice. The lack of multiplayer really sticks in my craw; I can appreciate a story-driven experience in any genre, but RTS games are meant to be played against other retards on the internet (or face-to-face against other hambeasts at your LAN). I think it shows less of a lack of confidence in Vanilla Ware’s gameplay balance and more of a ePhobia. Japanese developers have never been encouraged to use the online capabilities of the PS2, and I hope that when Grim Grimoire 2 comes out (assuming it actually comes out for a current system and not the PS2 again) Vanilla Ware will take the first revolutionary step forward to bring RTS gameplay online.

Of course there’s the control issues, but since the game does pause itself every time you select a unit or press a button or do pretty much anything it’s not as big of a problem as it’s been on other console RTS’s. Not being able to scroll over the map separately and jump to specific points is annoying as hell, though. A tip: use both analog sticks to scroll, it makes the screen move faster. The backgrounds are very similar, it’s true, and although the layouts and map sizes vary quite a bit, a little bit of variety would have been greatly appreciated. I understand that it’s a castle and it’s the same five days repeated over and over again, but come on. If I’m in the Alchemy section, put in an alchemy background with distillers and pipits and Bunsen burners and shit. Necromancy? Ghosts wandering around in the background and maybe coffins or tombstone pizza boxes or whatever you know? Get a little creative next time, please!

Finally, the game’s length: I have read on various sites that Grim Grimoire is 25-30 hours at a minimum. This is not quite a lie, but not quite true either. Hearing this, I plowed straight ahead and received quite a sucker punch when I beat the game with the fantastically short playtime of 15 hours, 19 minutes. Wow, that’s like ten hours short guys! It turns out that the bonus missions, which unlock every time you beat a stage, are actually important to wringing the most you can out of GG; at 25 stages, they are approximately half the game. I still suggest saving them for last rather than completing them as they’re unlocked, as that would break up the story and deliver a less focused experience. Also the bonus missions are often quite clever, and restrict you to using units and strategies you generally wouldn’t, which end up being very interesting and fun. In the end it’s up to you whether you choose to complete them after or during the storyline, which is a nice touch.

So a question I’ve been asked a lot is: better or worse than Odin Sphere? That’s quite a question. Quite a question. They’re two very, very different games, despite the striking similarity in graphical design. It’s very hard to decide; it would rest primarily on whether you prefer RTS games or action/rpg games. Many people have already played Odin Sphere, as well, so a lot of people may go into GG with preconceived ideas that weren’t present with such clarity at the start of Odin Sphere. At the end of the day, I’d be willing to say that Grim Grimoire does just as much with its genre as Odin Sphere did, although perhaps in a more traditional way. Odin Sphere is going to get the majority of the press and attention, since the market for 2D action/rpg fisticuffs is just much larger than the audience for 2D console RTS strategy, but that in no way makes Grim Grimoire the inferior of the two games.
