"If you like drumming, this is a must buy!" - Band Hero Review


The Rock Band fan boy in me tells me to hate this game. The normal teenager in me tells me that I love this game. Do I? I don't know. While I was playing this game there was so much doubt that it would be good and so much peppy-ness in the songs I couldn't concentrate.

Let's start with the review so my head can stop hurting and I can go back to playing Final Fantasy III for the DS.

Let's start off with the Graphics. What can I say about these graphics? Deja Vu. I saw these graphics in Guitar Hero 5. I mean, sure the lighting of the stages make them look more 'Pop' oriented, but still. I've heard the meaning, don't fix what ain't broke but come on! I have seen Activision do this a publisher SO MANY TIMES! Tony Hawk....Call Of Duty..what?

But I do like them for the 360. Just not enought choices of hair or clothing. And for the instruments, it was so stupid and way to complicated then it should be. The microphones you can't see clearly. Unless you choose the Gold with Diamonds microphone...which is pretty badass.

Any normal reviewer would give this display of graphics nothing lower than an I'm going to give it an 8.

Now let's move on to gameplay.

If you really want me to post an entire word for word description on how Guitar Hero works, you must be smoking something. Same exact mechanics. And for those who do not know, You can choose to use the Rock Band 2 drum kit.

The story. Jumping from setlist to setlist. Venue to venue. Not that interesting. Gets boring if you don't have a song you like. Which brings me up to the Score.

Sure this is your daily dose of pop in you average Guitar Hero game, but you gotta realize, even if you don't like the songs, people actually do. Think. This game may actually get some family members or siblings to play with you. And Party Play is a very fun option, since anyone can play whatever. Spread your addiction with these somewhat catchy songs! Hell, I have FUN singing Taylor Swift! Shut up!

So I think I covered pretty much everything about the game in a nutshell, eh?

So here is the Final Word.

If you play Rock Band or Guitar Hero, pick up this game. I got these for 30 Dollars NEW at my local BlockBuster. BUT if you haven't gotten GH5 yet, get that first. Seriously. You will feel empty. I feel this way because I haven't played it in a while.

Best thing about this game? DRUM CHARTING! While on the Rock Band Drum Kit, of course. It is new, different and fun! If you are a drummer, this is a must buy. If you like drumming, this is a must buy! I'm not saying this is O-M-G-H-A-R-D but it is just SO much fun. Honestly. All you hardcore FC top tier drummers need to chill and have some fun.

Rating: 8.0/10

SMW Hax progress!

(Wow, 2 posts in a single day. This won't happen very often.)
-Just figured out how to replace instruments in SMW with whatever you want through a utility known as SampleTool. The link below will show you how it sounds with the Megaman X guitar in place of the Steel Drum instrument.
-Background GFX Rips. Just take a look.

-Custom Sprite insertion. Sadly, I do not have any videos or pictures for that.
-Custom Block Insertion. Once again, there are no videos/pictures for that either.

The Awesomeness of Yoshi Safari - Yoshi Safari Review

Now, to start off the official blogging with a positive beginning, I will tell everyone about the awesomeness that is Yoshi's Safari.

First of all, this game takes place with Mario riding on the back of Yoshi. Now you may be saying that that's very normal for Mario to do, but in this game, he's on the back of yoshi, but carrying his trusty sidearm. Not the fire flower or anything like that, but a bazooka. Now, the bazooka is actually the Nintendo Super Scope, but it's still a pretty packin' gun.

Either way, the story is very bland, except that in this game, Princess Peach is not taken by Bowser, but instead a young prince of a distant kingdom known as Jewelry Land, yes, that's right, Jewelry Land. Alongside with taking the prince, Bowser and the koopa clan have also taken 12 of the kingdom's most precious Jewels.

The whole game takes place on the back of Yoshi, with you, shooting at the incoming enemies that are appearing on the screen. Every stage has a boss at the end which is usually a member of the Koopa Clan, but inside a Giant Robot. There is usually one specific place that you have to hit on them, such as when the mouth opens, or the place that connects the tentacles.
And of course, you fight bowser at the end, All you have to do is shoot at his hands, and into his mouth, and the fight is over. You restore peace to Jewelry Land and save the prince.
Now, the ratings.
On a scale from 1-5, here are the aspects of the game:
Story: 3
What else would you expect from a Mario game?
Gameplay: 4
It's a pretty fun game, I mean, the aspect of running around First Person on the back of Yoshi with a friggin' bazooka as Mario is pretty cool.
Difficulty: 2
This may just be because I was playing it on an emulator which gave me an advantage, but still, it was a very easy game.
Graphics: 4
Truthfully, the in-game graphics are very good, but they lose a point during in the cutscenes. I mean yes, It's expected, but hey! It's still a 4!
Replay value: 2
This game is very fun the first time through, but any more runs after that is pretty boring.
So, all-in-all this game recieves a 13/20; 65%; D
Now that I look back at it, even though it did not get the score I saw it getting, I still liked that hour of playing it. I find it to be an hour well spent.

Enter Bleebeebee

Hello everybody! I am a gamer/game hacker and a good friend of Dpritch. On this blog, I will mostly be posting reviews of video games that I have recently played. They will mostly be mixed reviews of any game that catches my interest. And alongside that, I will be posting my recent video game haxxorz/ haxxorz progress here for the whole entire community of TLC to see. So keep in touch, I will probably be posting at least one thing every/every other day.

And also, Just 'cuz I can:

All your blog are belong to us...

Welcome to 'The Lost Cake'! This will be a video game news/review page I, Dylan Pritchard (*points to sidebar*), and hopefully some others will be posting on. I am the Moderator here.

I made this site because I saw EVERYONE out there creating a blog. I was like,

'Hell! I can make a blog! It will be easy! I am funny, right?'

I assume at that moment I assume people started to laugh and call names but my dream carried on! I am here to make a blog that is 100% raw and not predjudice on any game! Unless of course it is me typing the post. In which case it will be TOTALLY prejudice.

But yes. Favorite this site. I will post opinions and reviews on games here and I would really like for my typing not to go to waste.

I'm not one to beg but...please? ;A;
