Hello everybody! After a seven month hiatus, Pixelated Overload is back and we are hoping to bring you new content (albeit to a small audience) at a slow but steady rate until we can get content on the website daily. Tomorrow night we will be recording the first episode of our rebooted Pixelated Overload Podcast, and we’ll be talking about all of the latest news, previews, and releases, along with some great banter.
Pixelated Overload will cease publishing articles, and will now switch to hosting the podcast. Thank you for your support.
Lets start at my last post, right after I finished that I tried to post another DS:Cember Post. Let me show you what it looked like.
That was “Hello welcome to the next installment of DS:cember.”
So as you can see after going to 4 different BestBuys, a geek squad finally gave up and just gave me a new PC. Which didnt come until Christmas….. I just played Xbox then my dad let me borrow his PC, he didn’t let me do anything but Steam sadly, so yea…… I hope this never happens again.
Im sorry that I haven’t been posting that much, the problems with my PC are finally done. Now I can type again without having weird symbols (It was a bug with windows 8). So to make it up I am going to post 2 of them every other day. Thank you, but while I was gone I played a shit ton of DS games, so I have done stuff in my absence Thank you for waiting and I am still taking your suggestions if you have any?
I have run out of game ideas………….. So I need YOUR help, I want you to comment a video game title and maybe it will make it on DS-Cember. It can be shitty or good whatever you choose, all it has to be is a DS/3DS game.
Big Time Rush: Backstage Pass………. THE FUCK DID I AGREE TO THIS? I wanna beer…… Sadly I cant drink. Please don’t make me do this……… Ok….. Im going to be vague. Its a game, involving a boy band. Its like dance dance revolution if it sold the fuck out,…. again…… I just hate this game, I really couldnt find any real info on it. It is just that bad, so in the end. FUCK HUMANITY FOR MAKING THIS PIECE OF SHIT.
Ubisoft’s Far Cry 3 launched on December 4 and the game has gotten very good reception. The ambitious open-world game scored a 90/100 on Metacritic (Xbox 360) and has been praised for its large single-player mode. Ubisoft can also be applauded for outscoring two other AAA games released this year, Halo 4 and Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Considering the factor that both of these games have been praised greatly by critics, Ubisoft can sleep soundly knowing the game is a success.
Far Cry 3′s predecessor, Far Cry 2, was not as liked by critics and was demonized by fans due to the game not feeling too much like Far Cry. Fans complained that the character’s malaria caused several annoyances and that the story was too basic to be interesting. I having played Far Cry 2 myself, can also adhere that the world was not as immersing as the original and lacked substance to its combat. In my opinion the game was good, but not great. Gladly, it seems that Far Cry 3 is on the right track and should provide gamers with a more thrilling and rewarding experience this time around.

PO Podcast 2
The World Ends with You is an action role-playing game developed by Square Enix’s Kingdom Hearts team and Jupiter for the Nintendo DS handheld console.
The review is going to be mostly about gameplay, story, and appeal, lets start with the gameplay. Its an action role-playing game, arranged into three chapters. You play as 2 characters simultaneously on the top and bottom screens of the DS. Its really confusing to talk about the gameplay, you use the stylus to control the main player and the arrows to control the partner. Its ok gameplay wise, not my best moments playing this game though. Now to story.
The game’s story is placed in the after life (UG), in a city like environment. A character named Neku over the course of the three weeks plays the “Game”, paired with partners named Shiki, Joshua, and Beat for each week. Its a deep story with flesh out characters, I dont want to say more in-case you do actually play this game. Its a great story, now onto appeal.
It appealed to anime fans and Japanese kids. Its not really saying “HEY BUY ME”, its more of “Sup”. Its a great game and I say buy. Thanks for reading, Im Mike The Comedian and HAPPY HANUKKAH.
Im Mike The Comedian and I am Jewish. So I want to say it from me to you, HAPPY HANUKKAH.
