weird-ass game with dumb angel guy

Here's a video of one of the games on that 3D thingee what's comin' out next year, "Kid Icarus: Uprising." It's a remake of, like, a game from the olden days. If The OverThinker wuz here, I bet he'd say it looked like a Sega arcade game... like, a today-days remake of Space Harriet. That game used to mess me up, because Harriet totally looked like a dude in it. They should've called it Space Harry, that'd make more sense...



Wait a minute... I only seen Kid Icarus this one time at my Anti-Cousin's house and it was totally lame, but... didn't the little Cupid guy used to have a bow and arrow? He had it in that one Smash Brawl game... What for he's got like a GUN now? That actually kinda pisses me off - I mean, guns rule and all but like this guy was like one of the only guys in video games what had a bow instead... he was, like The Nuge of angels or whatever! That's weird... I mean, I'M probably not gonna buy it anyway but if I was I'd totally be hoping you could still use a bow sometimes. Like... you remember in "Gladiator" when that African chick had like the machine-gun-crossbow? That was awesome.

at least they're keeping everything else that made the originals awesome. The gun is weird, but I can deal with it

i think what we may be seeing is a upgrade or downgrade weapon. like you have to but this at the store in game and it makes you shoot faster or something sorta like with games like kingdom hearts and bayonetta you get different weapons or ugrades to exsisting one
who says that kid icarus has to purely have a bow.

Adam said...

He did have a bow in the trailer at one point so it probably will be an option, but I lost track of just how many weapons he did use. I think I saw Wolverine-esque claws at one point so looks like there will be lots of ways to blast enemies. No complaints here.

What the fuuuuuck....
That looks like a rail shooter.
Also, judging from the way he writes, I'm guessing Antithinker's childhood heroes were Bebop and Rocksteady from TMNT?

Wait, where's the new Kid Icarus game? And why does Star Fox have wings growing out his back?

You know, none of us will judge you for dropping this gimmick without finishing it and going back to normal.

Judging by your comments, in fact, that's exactly what we all WISH you'd do.

Jeff said...

Nobody's gonna mind - in fact I think some might appreciate it - if you just dropped this gimmick and went back to normal, you know.

Your other videos were obnoxious but at least they usually had a point buried SOMEWHERE in them, Heavens to Metroid and Worst Person being the exceptions obviously.

I am bearing with this character under the assumption that it will eventually pay off with some game overthinking.

Justin said...

I'm entertained by how much that reminds me of the boss fight in Kirby 64. Looks like a lot of fun. Is it possible that the "gun" is just charged shots for his bow? Seems like at least as far as Brawl is concerned, his weapon is modular. His one bow splits into two swords, so maybe a gun too?

Although that does raise the question of why a person would choose to use a bow if they had immediate access to a gun, but... videogames.

On a somewhat unrelated note, and I'm only putting this here because I can't find an email link for you (completely understandable), but I'm having trouble watching some of your older videos. Specifically episodes 24 and 25, at the moment. The hard links to Screw Attack don't link to the videos either.

Why do people who don't even like your show to begin with, care if you keep this story arc going?
I don't know, starved for attention, most likely.
Anyway, I actually like what you've been doing with this. *aside from the anti-thinkers episode, it’s all been pretty clever*

Yeah I believe Pit's going to have access to different weapons in this game, you may recall in the E3 trailer he had like Wolverine clawed gauntlets at on point

Also to anyone who is pointing out how this goes against the previous 2 games in the series, keep in mind that initially Sakurai's Project Sora wanted to do a shooter as they felt it would be best to show off the 3D tech, then somewhere along the line they remembered how much everyone wanted a new Kid Icarus Game so they just applied the name and elements to the shooter they were working on.
