G'day everyone!
Clok-Roo reporting!

I'm just a simply Australian guy who likes video games. Reason I'm here is to show off some of my ideas related to video games.

Whether it's a design document, a script, or anything else that can be related, this is where I will be posting stuff that I want to show the world!

Hope you enjoy what you find!

I'm not normally one to review games, but I figured I'd provide a text-based review of Kingdom Hearts III just to get my thoughts on the game out there.
I'll try my best to not spoil anything and keep this short; just to give you guys the full version of what I think of the game now that I've beaten it...

Yes. BEATEN IT!
I have gone through the whole game and defeated the final boss, so I have full and conclusive opinions on the game now and nothing premature. Even so, I'll stick squarely to the gameplay since that's what you'll be most interested in. I won't say anything about the story for spoiler reasons.
I will say this though: this is a story that makes you question what you already knew about the characters... and then grind your heart into the dust.
Oh, and by the way, even if you are new to the series, you can still learn about what happened in the lead-up to this game with in-game archives told by Chirithy.
How thoughtful of you, Square Enix!


The gameplay is only one thing: FANTASTIC!
On top of everything that carries over from Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep - a fragmentary passage - there are a lot of new things that make this game so much fun to play and super fluid!
If you played the aforementioned game, you already know how easy it is to chain attacks and magic together without trouble. If you haven't, here's all you need to know. Because you can use magic in motion as well as hack away at enemies like normal, it's easy to go from slashing to casting magic as you make your getaway exit... or get into the thick of it, cast magic and then slash away. It's that easy! After a while, you'll be able to either perform a formchange or use extra powerful magic! You can also use shotlocks as long as you have energy in your Focus gauge.
It's also possible to switch between three different Keyblades on the fly, and each one has its own stats, secondary abilities, shotlock power and formchanges. My favourites by the end were Hero's Origin and Star Seeker. Hero's Origin was just a bruiser keyblade, and the formchange - Counter Guard - I found mighty handy to have on hand; Star Seeker was great for using magic and had a great ability and I loved using the second formchange it had - Star Blaster... Keyblade plus bazooka equals "I will eliminate each and every one of you Heartless maggots!"
The best part is that you can power up Keyblades and make them stronger. This means you can keep using your earlier Keyblades even after obtaining new ones, so you can really customize you equipment to your liking. Speaking of which... armour and accessories now have abilities. It certainly makes picking the right equipment for the job a lot more critical, as they can really swing the tide of battle around!
Oh, and you could also have up to three different quick-use menus at any one time you could cycle through. It's a neat idea, but I didn't really bother with it much after a while...
This might sound like a lot, but it's actually really easy to get used to and comprehend...
Almost... too easy I thought.
Is it just me, or is this the EASIEST Kingdom Hearts game to date? No, seriously, I played this game blind and on Proud and I can count on one hand the number of times I got Game Over. 5. And only 2 of those were by actually dying. The others were from failures elsewhere. And BOTH of those deaths were during the final boss. So yeah, I didn't find this game THAT hard surprisingly... compared to every other game where I couldn't keep track the number of times I lost to a single BOSS.
In fact, I also found myself rather reluctant if not hesitant at times to change my equipment. Once I had gear and equipment I was happy with, I didn't change it even when I got better gear, simply because the abilities I felt were just too important to relinquish. I think Donald kept the Mage Staff+ I got him at the start of the game right to the end, and I took on the final boss with the first 2 Keyblades you unlock - the only one different was the Big Hero 6 Keyblade (forgot the name).
So yeah, great new additions, but... I'm not entirely convinced they're really to the games benefit.
But by far the WORST thing about the gameplay is the pacing. And this ties into the story as well. The first problems is that the levels are long... like, REALLY long! Some last up to two hours long, including the prologue level in Olympus! But this pales in comparison to the Toy Box, which took me - get ready for this... 3 HOURS TO BEAT!!! The level just kept going and going and going and didn't ever seem to come to a stop!
Not helping this is the cutscenes. Sure, getting the story is good and I like the story that's told... but at times we just get back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back cutscenes that can last up to a total of HALF AN HOUR!!! Yes, you CAN skip the cutscenes... but on your first around, you'll want to watch them so you don't miss anything important, and so it craves relief with gameplay! Gameplay that feels like it's never coming!
I didn't buy a MOVIE, Square Enix! I bought a VIDEO GAME! I want to PLAY the GAME!!! *sigh* Look, I know a lot of previous Kingdom Hearts games had lots of cutscenes that played in sequence too, but they didn't take THIS long to get through them! So in this case, it just feels like it's taking forever.
If I can play any of the other games in the series and not get bored from watching the cutscenes - no matter how long they were - and yet lose it here, you know that something is wrong.
VERY wrong!


Well, so much for keeping it short.
So yeah, I'm kind of in an odd place with this game.
I probably love this game more than I have issues with it, and they don't really do anything to dampen the fun... except for the pacing. That's just garbage!
As a result, I can't really call this my favourite Kingdom Hearts game. That honour still belongs to Re:Chain of Memories for me. I probably COULD call it the best game in the series, though I couldn't call it a perfect game because of the pacing problem. In fact, I probably wouldn't even give it Game of Year because of it...

In conclusion, the game is really good! It does so many things right, but a lot of those things bring about there own problems I feel.
It's a game I can highly recommend to anyone who loves games with great levels of customizability and great stories... not so to a casual player though, or JRPG-outsiders. The pacing will definitely get on your nerves, assuming you can get to the grips with the layer-upon-layers of gameplay elements.

But above the all, and most crucially... the game is FUN!
And at the end of the day, that's all that matters. And that's why I love this game!
I can only wait to see where the series go from here...
The ending is really open to what can happen next.

Shantae TV cartoon 'Dream' script (fan-made)
DOWNLOAD PDF FILE TO ACCESS
Time for another of nifinland's works.
This one is again mostly written by him, but I've added my own spins into this one.

In fact, these are just about the only substantial changes I made:
The character Stream was originally conceived as a cyclops, because he was originally meant to be related to Ammo Baron (at least I think that's what he told me - I don't quite remember). But for some reason, I kept on imagining him as a reptilian/dinosaur character, like a character out of Star Fox Adventures. Don't ask why; I couldn't tell you. Other than that, the character is basically unchanged personality/character wise from what nifinland cooked up. (I'd really like to know if you think that was a good call or if it should be changed back.)
The 'The Bachelor' scene was originally written as a 'Blind Date' scene, but I thought it would be better and more impactful (and just as in character) if it were the former... Plus, 'The Bachelor' is more relevant than 'Blind Date' in today's modern world; it would have been a lost reference to many, otherwise.

But that's about all I did differently. This script is nearly 1-to-1 what nifinland wrote, so if you like this, be sure to credit him for the creation.

Enjoy everyone, and we look forward to hearing your feedback!

Shantae TV cartoon 'Ghost' script (fan-made)
DOWNLOAD PDF FILE TO ACCESS
OK, so at the moment I'm taking a break from script writing since I've hit a writers block.
I'll probably get back into it once I've binged myself on Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled... that'll help clear the head!

For the time being, I'm just going to upload the other scripts I have ready, but it should be noted that these are set a bit forward in the timeline compared to the last script I uploaded.
To help those that have been following my work get up to speed, here's what you need to know:
At some point before this episode, Shantae is able to regain her magic powers. Upon doing so, she asks Mayor Scuttlebutt for her job as town guardian back... only to be denied for some reason. Afterwards, Shantae decides she has no choice but to convince Mayor Scuttlebutt anyway she can to give her her old job back.

Aaaaaaand that's all you need to know in advance story-wise.
As for the actual script... well, I'm not going to credit myself for this one outside editing it. Aside from some spots here and there, this script was was mostly done by friend nifinland, and is largely unchanged from the original draft he wrote and sent me. Why? Because it was SO GOOD!
This was one of the first ideas he had and that he showed me, and I liked it so much that I tweaked it up and bit (to make it feel more in-line with my work) and decided to add it as part of my on-going series concept.
So for this one, don't thank me if you like it; thank nifinland.
The guy deserves it!

Hope you enjoy this one, everyone!
I'm sure my friend would to hear your feedback.

EDIT:
Oy... I didn't realize it until I checked it again just now, but WOW is my editing bad. I missed a LOT of errors.
Fixed now.

Work on Shantae is on hold for the time being...
I've hit writers block.
I want to focus on other things for a while.

I still have other scripts I can upload, but they won't be in canonical order. As a result, some important story events WILL be skipped over.
Hope you all understand.
Bloons Tower Defense 6 'Short' Ideas (fan-made)
DOWNLOAD PDF FILE TO ACCESS
Here's something to tide you guys over until I get my next Shantae script up.

If you've been on the Internet in the last few years, chances are you've at least heard of Bloons Tower Defense in some capacity.
The series has entered its sixth iteration late last year, which brought with it a new mechanic known as 'Heroes.' The easiest way of describing them is as BTD versions of the champions from League of Legends; you have Quincy the Archer, Gwendolin the Pyromancer, and so on.
And one day I thought to myself "I wonder what it would be like if their were short videos that gave us a little more insight into these unique characters?"
And hence this small piece of work was created.

Inspired by Team Fortress 2's 'Meet the...' videos, I have cooked up two ideas for possible shorts that star and elaborate on a specific hero.
More may come in the future, in which case I'll just update the document and add them to it.
These are pretty different than my previous works, as they are intended for showcasing a character rather than tell a cohesive story. Either way, I hope you like my work.

And if you somehow find this, Ninjakiwi... I hope you at least consider these ideas.
(And buff Quincy/nerf Gwendolin.)

Enjoy!

Recently been doing some Time Trial practice runs in Crash Team Racing in preparation for Nitro-Fueled. Been setting some proper blazing fast laps, too!
Mind you, it's difficult to judge how good my times really are, especially when so many people outside America use Penta Penguin (though I'm PAL, I don't use him for balance purposes) and there are several tracks with illegal shortcuts and speed tricks.

Something tells me that there isn't a leader-board for times that match my criteria...
Here's hoping the ones in Nitro-Fueled don't suffer the same fate.

I thought of an idea for your The Wario Show concept involving 5-Volt becoming a Werewolf going on the prowl at night, causing worry amongst the Diamond City residents, all except Wario, who sees it as an opportunity to get rich.

What do you think? If you don't like it, that's fine.

Interesting idea...
Except that 5-Volt doesn't make any sense.
Though I know exactly where you are getting the idea from...

Let me think on that one for a bit.

So Skylanders Academy season 3's coming soon. And what caught my attention was that since Eric Rogers isn't in the producing team anymore, Rhys Darby took his place as Crash's voice and we'll hear Patrick Warburton go ''BOOM'' once more.

I'll be doing a video soon about all of this.
I have so many things to say about this...
