The Impossible Dream Of A Game

Recommended Posts


Yo guys.  I've just started my FMP (Final Major Project) at college.  I need to gather a large number of names from Games and Anime Characters.  This is where you guys come in.  I want you to tell me about your favorite characters, which games they are from and why you like them. Thank you. :-)

   I don't really have one. But if I had to choose, it would be Dante from Devil May Cry. Not sure if that can be counted as anime.


   While do hate Capcom since their last wankering, Dante is an all around badass.


   Thats all I have :)

Prince Elite

Alright let's start with something easy. Something we all know and love for the most part.




Fox McCloud is a mercenary pilot for hire who leads the second incarnation of the Star Fox team. His first game appearance in the now non-canonical game Star Fox (Starwing in Europe and Australia) would eventually lead to his prime appearance in the hugely popular Nintendo 64 game, Star Fox 64 (Lylat Wars in Europe and Australia) and eventually sequels Star Fox Adventures, Assault and Command as well as a SF64 remake for the Nintendo 3DS. Fox McCloud is a representation of a cool, free fighter who can do practically anything he sets his mind to, ranging from ending multi-planet wars, to deposing Emperors. My favourite incarnation of this character is the SF64 version due to the likeability of the character, his personality and disposition towards battle. Bravery and calmness in the face of adversity and (nearly) selfless acts of heroism. 



Link is a cornerstone of the Nintendo gaming market with 16 official games (and some spin offs). Notable games include Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. LoZ: Majora's Mask and LoZ: Twilight Princess which were all released to critical acclaim from reviewers and players alike. The green clad Hylian youth is usually the epicentre of great quests to destroy evil villains who want to take over the realm of Hyrule, though other countries also exist. As the bearer of the Triforce of Courage (a religious relic given only to those who embody the traits associated with it) Link travels to many locations selflessly and undertakes many perilous quests in order to free the lands of their various ills and defeat the masterminds behind them. I favour this character because Link is a brave swordsman (or boy depending on the game) who is always willing to lend a hand to a cause without thought of reward. Though he never seems to speak in the games, his actions portray his brave soul and willingness to save the world from darkness of any description, a true model of a hero.

Wow that was tough, okay hope this helps. Don't spear me!

I'd agree with Prince Elite on Fox McCloud. While he doesn't have a whole lot of essence to him, it's easy to imagine it.


Midna (From The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess) You could almost think of her as a bit of an antagonist because she tries to almost take control of Link in a way. She's quite pushy and snarky and never hesitant to share her opinion (Whether you want to hear it or not).

Well, Fox McCloud has been addressed that I'd be contributing.


Link is one of my favs, because of how we was made. He doesn't talk, hence never utters an opinion on something, except through the look on his face. And before they had him gradually become a young stuntman in TP (that doesn't change the fact that tp is my absolute fav in the LoZ series), he never really did something you couldn't imagine you wouldn't do given his utensils, either. Among all pre-created video game characters, he always had the best identification factor to me.


Samus Aran, before they ruined it in Other M, was an ideal. A thought, that something could exist. A female protagonist that does the fighting of a dangerous job, such as that of a bounty hunter and at the same time doesn't get emotionally involved with anything but stays absolutely professional. She faces a situation and her thoughts focus only around how to solve it. Not around how she misses Adam, or sulking about the poor MB girl/clone/mutant/thingy. But, unfortunately, the idea of a woman that can focus on the main plot for a change was crushed. Let's hope it's restored in the next game.


Master Chief from the Halo series has the entire course of his life documented within the games, the comics and the novels. Yet he will never reveal his face (except recently half of his face for a third of a second in the legendary ending of Halo 4) He has increased strength and speed, along with an exoskeleton that allows him to use a lot of force, and he has an energy shield that holds off a few single shots. He is actually not that strong, and doesn't have any real super powers or excessively powerful traits like other heroes do. He only achieves everything through precision and cautiousness. When he does his stunt things, he doesn't just whimsically jump in and do something random like a hero in a Shonen of any sort. He is aware of every single step and accomplishes all the great things with precision of his mind, precision of his body and precision of his weapon. That doesn't make him much different from many similar heroes, but he's the one that worked for me. Also he's more mysterious than most of the similar ones.


I'd bring up Ezio, but he kinda has a fanbase of his own.

Modern Sonic


-Sonic is a blue hedgehog with a cocky, short-tempered attitudes but with a strong heart and an indomitable force of will. He can run  very fast, many times the speed of sound, and can spin into a ball form (like real hedgehogs), and by spinning as a ball Sonic can reach lightspeed. He also has excellent agility, superb reflexes, and absolute flexibility that go well with his speed. Also, his speed isn't limited to straight-lines, and he can run backwards as fast as forwards. He can gain insight on many things, and when people are talking to him, he rarely makes eye contact and just looks a long way, but in reality he listens with all his heart.


(If this info feels lacking just tell ;) )

Falco Lombardi for sure!

He's a great pilot, pretty decent in a fight (considering his ai over the other jokers), and pretty excellent in SSBB if you use hiim correctly. His tiny comics that he was featured in were pretty cool too, especially "Farewell beloved Falco"-whereh e had more a prominant role.


Alphonse Elric-he's a pretty neat character despite his childish voice. Pretty decent fighter when he sets his mind to it, encouraging and pretty tough: He's a freaking suit of armor for pete's sake!


Corporal Adrian Shepherd:

He's a bad ass HECU MArine trooper that managed to rally what troops were left at Black Mesa and fight off the Xen aliens and Race-X aliens the best he could as one Deviant art picture titled him, "The unsung hero of Black Mesa". (that and he's waaaaaay better than Gordon Freeman anyday in my opinion)

      Hi, I literally just joined this website. As the artist I am, I wanted to go check out the gallery. Surprisingly to me it looks like a ghost town, mainly because the most recent image on there was from 2013. Right now, I'm pondering on where is all of the art around here. Do any of you guys happen to know what happened to the use of the gallery?

      So last year when Star Fox 2 was launching on the SNES classic. One of my fellow staff members and I took it upon ourselves to create a somewhat historically accurate approximation of a Star Fox 2 manual. The whole thing is free to download here. Anyway in the process we wound up creating some new art as well as... I guess I'd say finishing... some of the existing concept art Nintendo had already released. You've probably seen the design documents for the various Arwing variants in Star Fox 2. We went in and cleaned those up and colored them to look more like finished art. We also did our best to create from scratch an illustration of the carrier to match the official art's style. 
      I also wound up building (as accurately as I could) the standard Arwing and its walker form in 3D. We used these images in the controls section of the manual. I build a 3D version of the carrier as well though it never actually made it into the final manual. 
      Anyway it was a really fun project to go back and try to restore some old art as well as create modern renders of the ships. Of course I have to give credit to Tsuyoshi Watanabe for the original Star Fox 2 concept art we worked from. 

      Oh and here (video) is how the finished manuals looked for anyone who was curious.

      Imagine you're given the chance to get Zero's best aspects and put it into a multiplayer experience. What would locales and ships would you incorporate?
      For playable vehicles I'd include the Arwing and Wolfen, and at the very least try to make a map based on sector alpha(?). Walker mode multiplayer would be interesting if you designed the levels to have clever hiding spots then can also be flushed out and not to easily exploitable.

      As I writer (amateur writer...very very amateur lol), I tend to get bored easily. As a result I've ha e written or atleast started several series' without finishing them. So I ask this of you: which of this fics should I continue? I will post them in a poll on this thread and if you'd like I can give a brief, informative synopsis for each one.
      Please, this would REALLY help me out guys. Thank you for your time.

      Dark Souls: the anthology series :

      Heya guys! Here are several links to my many galleries I post to across different websites, as well as links to my commission information.
      Currently I'm trying to get myself to Texas Furry Fiesta 2018, so I am planning WAY ahead early! The stars were not in position this year, but I can sure work my ass off to do it next year! Not only am I planning to attend, but I'd love to do it in my first fursuit, a character I've had for 3 years. Her name is Dulce Luna, and she's a very cute little bovine! She dresses in lolita clothes, so what with TFF 2018's theme being Lone Star Wonderland, I figured it would be great if she could make it! She would be perfect for it!
      (I also have a client to pay back, after coming across hard times and asking for a refund--I normally like to keep my funds in my PayPal account untouched until I deliver the finished art, but we desperately needed that money to pay bills.)
