The importance of casinos in 007: Legends on the Wii

007: Legends on the Wii is a shooter game featuring James Bond and numerous other characters from six different Bond movies. The movies are: Skyfall, Goldfinger, Die Another Day, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Licence to Kill and Moonraker. They were selected so that each one features a different actor playing Bond, though in the game every different James Bond is played by Daniel Craig. If it had been done in any other way the game would be even more confusing than it is.
James bond spends much of his time in casinos. It was in a casino scene in Dr No that James Bond introduced himself to Sylvia Tench the first Bond girl telling her his name: Bond, James Bond, as they played a game of baccarat. While Dr No doesn’t feature in 007: Legends, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service does. In that film there was a casino scene in which Bond meets Contessa Teresa di Vicenzo who is played by Diana Rigg, and the game being played is roulette, though unfortunately that scene has been omitted from the game.
Casinos feature in GoldenEye and this time Bond meets Xenia Onatopp at the Casino Monte Carlo, though we get only a fleeting impression of this in the game, and unfortunately the best Bond casino scenes of all, those in Casino Royal, are not featured at all. You will have to visit an online casino such as www.jackpotcity.co.uk/online-slots instead if you want to play baccarat.
Unfortunately 007 Legends didn’t receive a particularly enthusiastic reception though the Wii version received a considerably higher rating than the PC version. The main concern was that some of the best Bond moments hadn’t been given the attention they deserved, the game was seen as a clone of Call of Duty. It was also seen as being rather repetitive.  It was also suggested that many of the scenes used were not Bond’s best, some casino scenes would have livened the plot up considerably.

Super Mario All Stars – 25th Anniversary Edition

Hello, I’m 8Bit, and I’m here to bring you my very first review!

We all love Mario,and in 2010, it was his big 25, so why not celebrate it with a game? Sonic was doing it this year! Well unfortunately, this one is a rerelease. And when it comes to rereleases, it’s always trial and error..And I’m here to give the test!

Let’s see if Mario can live up to this one, or not!

1. The Content

Honestly, Nintendo could actually do better than this, looking at SEGA in which they have released a time capsule game for Sonic’s 20th. The game also comes with a Soundtrack CD, which is nothing more than a few tracks of game music, and SOUNDS from the first Mario? The sounds are technically useless, seeing how it’s a little impossible to actually use them, due to them being CD Audio. Needed MP3s. The booklet is a nice including, when you’re totally bored and want to seek back into Mario’s glory years (before XBOX existed). Also, the booklet also clues us into the concept art of Mario 3 and many more. Also, how did the group at the end make that “25″? All around, the content included with the game is very nice to give us a little more worth what we paid for.

 

2. Packaging

The packaging is very good in this case. The velcro will somehow come off,at least mine did. The game and extras are kept in seperated cases. And I really love how the 8-Bit Mario sprite is kind of popping off the box. So the packaging is very good as in how it’s kept and how it looks.

3. Music

The game has the same music as the SNES release of All-Stars, and it sounded great in 1993, and it still does today.

4. Controls

Nintendo has added something to make this game better: Wii Remote Controls, despite the countless accidents I make over a pit in 8-2 due to the buttons being a bit too close. Although, you can also use the Gamecube Controller or the Classic Controller, I perfer use of the Wii Remote, just because it feels like an NES controller, but the more faithful way is using a Classic Controller, or getting one of these babies. Otherwise, it’s a step in the right direction.

5. The Game itself

First off, this is not the European Super Mario All-Stars + Super Mario World release. (Although it would’ve saved 500 or so Wii Points, plus the addition of Luigi’s new sprite set in the SMAS release of Super Mario World. Oh well.) But the game itself is the same as the SNES version of the game,so it’s the same all around.

6.Graphics

This game looked great in 1993, and it still does now. The looks have not changed since 1993, which it has aged well.

 

7.Overall

This was for the 25th anniversary of Super Mario Bros, and I must say, despite the poor excuse (Honestly, they could’ve pulled a SEGA and made a whole new game. Dream on, I suppose.), It hasn’t changed much, and it’s a good game for any Classic Mario fan.

Rating: 10/10 (Just because I actually liked it, despite my disappointment)

Pokèmon Rrrrrumble!

Hello again everyone! Today I’m going to talk about a relatively new WiiWare title…

Here’s the main gist of the story. You control a toy Pokemon, therefore it can not gain experience or evolve, yet it is still a Pokemon. If you want a stronger Pokemon, you must battle in the wild with other toy Pokemon, with a chance that one you defeat will fall down for you to pick up and join your team. Since the Wii remote is held sideways (GC and Classic Controllers can also be used) the 1 and 2 buttons are for attacking, with a maximum of 2 moves for each Pokemon.

This game is definitely worth having a look at, and if you just want to try it, download the WiiWare Demo for free!

Adios!

Wii Shop Update!

Hi all. Today I will show you some new (cough) things on the… take a guess… Wii!

There’s been a few updates… and one of them is pretty exciting! It’s called the “Connection Ambassadors Program”.

Basically this is what it is; you get Wii, you connect it to the internet, then you get a friend’s Wii, “help” them connect to the internet, one way or another, register each others codes and boom! 500 points EACH!!! I’ve done it once, and I just got my friend to bring their Wii over. Sounds good! Best thing is, there is no catch at all!

But it doesn’t just stop there! Register 10 friends, and you get every Nintendo-published NES game in the shop. Don’t forget you will also have the 5000 points from each person! Register 20 people, and you will be entitled to… (drumroll please)

Every NES, SNES and N64 game in the whole store!!!!!

Wow! I’m pretty sure there’s a few of them.

More info @ http://www.nintendo.com.au/index.php?action=news&nid=44&pageID=6

Also, there are some WiiWare Demos available, all for free. Sounds good :D >>http://www.nintendo.com.au/index.php?action=news&nid=56&pageID=6

See you guys later :D

Scribblenauts…

*Brushes dust off website*

Phew. It’s been  long. Too long

Now it’s time for… Scribblenauts! This a pretty addictive game in which you can write just about anything to solve the 200 puzzles in the game and more! From moon buggies and jet fighters to dragons and tranquillizer darts. If you’re, well, wanting to know how many words there are… there’s around 22,802 words to put in! Yikes! Apparently a hacker had lots of time on their hands… too much time I reckon.

http://pastebin.com/f6a4bb4b0 is the site where you’ll find the list.

Here’s an interesting video I found as well: http://gamevideos.1up.com/video/id/26340

games.kidswb.com/scribblenauts/ is the official site. You can nab a few goodies while you’re there if you want as well!

Over and out.

DSi!

Now, this site has been very inactive for a while… time to post!

As my friend has got a DSi, I can talk a little about it.

My Wi-fi + My friends DSi

= Wi(i)n!

Now he has three more things on his menu, the DSi Browser, a paper plane game, and another one with a red bird, “Pyoro”. He also has an awesome little game which goes by the name of PiCOPiCT.

That's the Title screen...

A little of the gameplay

A little of the gameplay

PiCOPiCT… is an interesting little game which involves pixels and eliminating them. On the top screen a sprite can be seen. The pixels can be shifted by touching one and touching the space that you want it to go into. By making a box of 4 or more, they will be eliminated and that many pixels will be added to the sprite! The correct colours have to be used, or the game will go on forever :P .

Note that the two ‘i’s are lower case as opposed to the rest of the title. Probably something to do with the fact that DSi is… DSi.

Hopefully I’ll be able to post about E3 very soon! Cya later!

The five game preview

I’m baaaack ;) Yup, it’s me Mario Man. Hello everyone- and I hope you find this post very interesting.

It’s a three game preview. I’m going to be telling you about the five up comming games on the wii. They look good and so all wii owners read on

My Sims party + My Sims racing

All My Sims Fans this is for you, because comming to the DS and wii is two my

sims games!! Yes TWO games, and from what I can see, they look good. First out will be My sims part, and like Mario Party it is crammed with fun and addicting mini games. But with a MySims Kick. You can create a MySim and play mini games to unlock clothing for putting up your Sim. Also there seems to be custom made MySims, like The chef, who is in both MySims games. It is a preview and all I have is some screen shots but there will be more to come when more is let out.

Then theres My Sims Racing. It’s the same really apart from the mini games being replaced by tracks and Cars and your racing for clothing.

Sonic & The Black Knight

Ah, another sonic game for a Nintendo Consol. Since when have Nintendo and Sega become best firends. Well with Sonic unleashed not being something worth while, will this be? The simple awnser is ‘Who knows’  So far what I have seen it looks to be a shape up. But then again- so did Sonic unleashed. But we have to give it a chance so lets do just that. Like Sonic and the secret rings- it will be a mission type game. It will also be the second sonic game in the story book series. Yes- Sonic and the secret rings was like a story book and it will be the same with Sonic & The Black Knight. As you controll Sonic threw ‘Medevil’ themed levels, you slash baddies with your sword and grind on ropes. You control the sword (It talks by the way) by swinging the wii remote, and that good be a good thing or a bad thing.

The pictures look good- but what will the out come be? Just wait and See.

New wii controls

As we know pikimin has entered the wii with new controls. here are some others making there way there.

1) Pikimin 2

2) Donkey Konga

3) Mario power tennis (no new game- just a remake)

Not only this Nintendo might be adding Luigi’s mansion + Super Mario Sunshine! I hope theese games come, and this is a great idea for those gamers who missed out. More info comming.

Mario And Sonic At The Olympic Winter Games

Believe it or not comming our way in winter this year is  and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games. The game will be crahing into the wii AND DS. Only three Events comfirmed but theres sure to be more. There isn’t much to say on the game now, but expect a bigger Preview to come as soon as I gather the info needed. But you can gaze in awe at The pictures.

If you have questions email me (benny_bowser@yahoo.co.uk) or post a comment :) :) :)
