I should've taken Spanish, instead.




#1965290 Is Goku really UNBEATABLE? Who could defeat (or kill) him?

Posted by TheFinalPersonaKeyblade on 28 October 2017 - 07:13 AM

Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog.

Not the SEGA Sonic, but Archie. He is insanely OP. He has the ability to adapt to any environment with ONLY a single Power Ring. His speed is JUST UNDER the speed of light, plus he can utilize Chaos Energy, which can only be defeated by an equal amount of Chaos Energy- making him completely invulnerable. *The only people who have proven to be a match for Super Sonic are: Super Sonic (A.U.), and Enerjak (Knuckles infused with Chaos Energy)

The sad thing is, SEGA Sonic could have been somewhat comparable to Goku if Solaris wasn't considered an outlier (I blame Unleashed).

Yeah, but not when they're popped! That ruins the flavor.

This is anime. Earth won't be destroyed for whatever reason.

#1964470 Review: Nicktoons Unite (Oh boy, what a first installment...)

Posted by TheFinalPersonaKeyblade on 16 October 2017 - 04:51 PM

It's been a long time since I made a review, hasn't it? Well, for my first review in over 2 years, I have decided to look back at a game I got back in Christmas 2005: Nicktoons Unite. I used to love this game when I was growing up, but how does it fare now compared to when I was a kid? Well, um... just read this.

 

Story: Dr. Calamitous has created a Multi-Dimensional ...Thingy (yes, it's really called that, as a nod to how he is in Jimmy Neutron) and has assembled a team of villains from Danny Phantom, SpongeBob, and The Fairly OddParents. Together, they are known as The Syndicate.  Jimmy Neutron catches word of this, and does the same, recruiting Timmy Turner (not without referencing the Power Hour Special), Danny Fenton, and SpongeBob to take out their series' respective villains, traversing through Amity Park, Bikini Bottom, Fairy World, and inside Goddard (damn, we don't even get to play in Retroville, that sucks). Honestly, the story is as basic as it gets, and for how long this game is, already, that's a big problem. It wouldn't be as big a problem if the game were 5-6 hours long, but Nicktoons Unite is close to 20 hours long! A game this relatively uninteresting, story-wise, should not be longer than your average Kingdom Hearts game. Not once does the story take any sort of turn, make a plot twist, or add any sort of interesting detail. The story is almost completely nonexistent from beginning to end. Say what you will about Kingdom Hearts' story, but at least it isn't this plain or flat.

 

Presentation: In terms of presentation, Nicktoons Unite fares better in this regard. The visuals, for the most part, are fairly decent for its generation, and the voice actors and actresses do a good job reprising their roles as their respective characters. The writing, while not amazing, is still consistently decent throughout the game.There are various nods towards each series represented, and there is a lot of fanservice for those who like these series. It beats the pants off The Fairly OddParents, that's for sure. However, the color palette in the game is all over the place. One level could be vibrant in its color palette, while another could look really drab and lifeless. It's inconsistent throughout the entire game, except for Amity Park, which always looks drab and lifeless. The music also isn't that memorable, either. I don't remember a single track from this game, which also adds to how this game more than outstays its welcome. It got to the point where I was listening to music from other games just to keep my mind active, and I almost never do that while playing a game. To this game's credit, even as a back-handed compliment , it makes me appreciate composers like Hiroyuki Sawano more, but that exemplifies why the game's music is so forgettable. To sum it up, Nicktoons Unite's presentation is average and leaves a lot to be desired.

 

Gameplay: Nicktoons Unite is essentially a dungeon-crawler with some RPG and platforming elements thrown in. You play as Jimmy Neutron, Danny Fenton, Timmy Turner, and SpongeBob Squarepants. Each character has a unique playstyle: Jimmy is a mid-range fighter, Danny is a close-ranged fighter, SpongeBob can be long-ranged via Bubble Bombs, and Timmy is essentially a mage. Each character has an MP gauge that determines how long they can use their abilities. Each character can learn up to three different abilities throughout the course of the game, and each ability can be upgraded up to three times via coins you get from killing enemies. There is also a life-system in place, but it is not separate to each character, as it is a pool of lives serving as a total amount. As far as combat goes, this is basically the most variety you are going to get in this game. You may be getting more abilities, but they are more for platforming than anything else. The few combat abilities you do get feel  haphazard and almost completely unneeded. They don't link into other attacks, and some of them are completely impractical and nonviable. Combos themselves are nothing special, as there's no flow to them, it doesn't feel like there's any impact from these attacks, and they are able to make you open to virtually any attack, due to how slow they are. For a combat-heavy game such as this, having combat this barebones is a massive problem. I'm not expecting this game to be on the same level of complexity as, say, Devil May Cry, almost anything from Platinum Games, or even games like Kingdom Hearts II, but as a game with combat as 75% of what you do, there needs to be more offered on the table. Platforming is a whole other issue, as the characters feel extremely heavy, and their jump arcs are very low on top of that. The problem becomes worse when the game makes you perform very precise jumps in several areas in the game, as platforming can be really difficult at times. Outside of bosses, however, that's really the closest thing this game has to difficulty, as Nicktoons Unite is extremely easy. Enemies rarely, if ever, actually attack you, and these levels have hordes of them. It's essentially Dynasty Warriors, but without the visual stimulation or actual variety. The level designs themselves are extremely flat and barren. Rarely do levels feel any different than what you usually do. There's the occasional puzzle, but it's no more brain-taxing than the stale, boring combat. Each level drags on to ridiculous degrees, sometimes taking as long as 2 hours. The closest thing this game has to even remotely average level design is Fairy World, and it's from the series I have the most animosity towards (if you couldn't tell already, I really hate The Fairly OddParents). Last up, there are the boss fights, and they're honestly the worst part. They range in difficulty sporadically, with some bosses being complete cakewalks, and some bosses just being unfair. One thing they all share in common, though, is that they are all damage sponges, meaning even the bosses take a ludicrous amount of time. The final boss took me three hours to beat, and that's even after recognizing it's pattern! None of the boss fights are interesting, and they barely make use of the game's already bare ability system. Most of them are complete crapshoots when it comes to recognizing their pattern, as they can change their entire battle strategy on a whim without any clear indication from their HP or the character being used. If that isn't the definition of BS boss design, I don't know what is. 

 

Final Verdict: Nicktoons Unite is a complete chore to play, from its bland level design and archaic combat system, to its horrendous boss structure, arduous platforming, and lack of variety in overall story and gameplay. The game has completely outstayed its welcome by the end of the first world, and I was on autopilot for the rest of the game, completely losing interest by that point. The fact that the game is almost 20 hours long is a cardinal sin. I can honestly say that, from the bottom of my heart, Nicktoons Unite is not only one of the worst licensed games I have ever played, but it is one of the worst overall games I have ever played. No matter how decent the visuals and writing are, they cannot save this game from being anything more than terrible. The only reason I don't sound more angry at this game like I am with Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days is due to this game essentially mentally draining me more than that game did, which is really saying something (also, Days has much better music,so...).

 

Score: 2/10

 

Now, I don't want to end this review on such a negative note, so I'll say: go play the other Nicktoons Crossover games, as they are of much higher quality than this game, and deserve your time and effort.
