      Asura vs Ryu...Capcom did it right.

      3 years ago

      I was late on the Asura's Wraith fun train. I knew of it, looked cool but I couldn't bring myself to play another game that relied on quick time events as it's primary gameplay. I survived Ninja Blade, another cool concept game but the quick time events ruined an experince that should have been ninja-err-fic.Nothing was worse then shitting the bed while driving a motorcycle up a missle. Not only are you letting yourself down but all kickass boner enducing ninjas around the world.Sad panda.

      I finally convinced myself to get on the quicktime ass pounding ride and well, I was surprised..it was fun.
      What makes Asura special? Is it the fact he doesn't give a fuck about the fundemental laws of physics? Or is how he likes to punch the shit out of everything that gives the "gay" vibe. I don't know really, but at the end of smashing the shit out a bunch of god, deities and one pervert staring at boobs, I must say it is one of my favorite games.

      The dlc for the game is a must, like you should be pounced, yes i said POUNCED, in the sack if you don't buy it.The recent Asura vs Rya dlc is by far one of the most impressive additions to a game since the nudity dlc in The Saboteur. If you don't own Asura's Wraith (YOU DINK) you are one lucky bastard because I posted the entire level on my profile. So check it out, but I am not responsible if you develop a gaming chubby.

      Silent Hill is back.

      3 years ago

      I will admit, I am a huge fan of the macabre and psychological horror. I really enjoy the Silent Hill franchise and I am willing to buy any game that comes out with "Silent Hill" in bold letters. I have to admit the new game that came out has to be one of my favorites. The gameplay is back to its roots, which also includes the terrible melee attacks. I understand how that can throw people off and deem it a terrible game. You don't play Silent Hill to fight things to death, you play it to run like hell. The atmosphere is incredible, this is the first time you get to strut around Silent Hill's streets and feel like you are lost in a place that is not necessarily welcomed. Blood splatted, unnatural footprints, things disappearing then reappearing distorted and all the uneasy noises you can stomach. The story is the selling point, the developers of the game must have loved the series because of all the references they hid around the town. See if you can find the reference to Silent Hill 4, I giggled.

      The new addition of this game are side quests or mini stories of people who lived in Silent Hill. These are great because they are individually wrapped horror stories. Its back! The tell don't show kind of horror. Hear squishy footprints in the next room to only investigate to find nothing but footmarks why the door slams shut behind you? That is horror, the atmosphere makes you brain swim in what ifs. Don't worry, there are plenty of "show" horror.

      I enjoyed Silent Hill Homecoming, but I felt it wasn't really up there with the original Silent Hill series. It had the name but it didn't have the charm. This does, I know because I had to stop playing a few times because I was scared to move on.

      Keep in mind when playing, it is adapted from the old style play of SIlent Hill. The puzzles are challenging, items are hard to find and you are going to get lost from time to time. But that is Silent Hill for better or worse.

      Binary Domain, really great game.

      in Forums > Binary Domain, really great game. | Follow this topic

      Last week Binary Domain was released and it did not get a lot of attention. I played about an hour or two of it and I got to see it is a really exciting game. Lots of explosions and really cool cinemagraphic moments. I am actually enjoying this more than Gears of War which has similar game mechanics. If I caught your interest, check out the link to my This is video, I am pretty sure by the end of it you are going to want to find this game.

      SSX: Acessable cliffhanging

      3 years ago

      With Mass Effect 3 around the corner, like most people I was looking for a game to keep me occupied until the big release date. Instead of replaying the other 2 ME games for the few achievements I missed, I decided to try out SSX. I remember the other SSX games I played were pretty cool with zany larger than life characters and really crazy uber moves that involve physics-defying acrobatic feats. My problem was that I also remember how frustrating difficult it was to win a race when the AI never missed a jump and always had the perfect trail.

      After a few hours with the game, I was already pulling off crazy moves and nailing huge jumps with little or no learning curve. It reminds me of the first Zone of the Enders, hit x and your giant robot will do a triple backflp will strafing counterclockwise John Woo style (cue the doves). That feeling of "wow I am really kicking ass in this game" is present in SSX. I agree it is a bit of handholding on the part of the developper but at the sametime you are achieving in what the game is suppose to deliver: a crazy adrenline fueled joyride. I wanted to write this journal after I watched a video of a gamer mocking the developper because it is possible to get third place in a race without touching the controller. Personally I don't see that as a bad thing, the game is insuring that if you encounter difficulty you still will have a chance of succeeding. What's wrong with that? A game that tries to cut down on frustrating moments but rather encourages the player to do and try everything.

      If you have a chance, play this game and tell me what you think of it. I hope you enjoy the experience as much as I did. If you have a chance, check out my videos on SSX.

      As always, you don't have to be a pro, to be a winner.

      Raging about Rage?

      3 years ago

      Just finished Rage..well 80 percent of the achievements and well...I am kind of perplexed. It has everything that "A" title would have but I still feel not overly satisfied with the final product. Is it just me or did they kind of forgot to end the game? They weave this kick-ass story of ass kicking proportions to end it with run 15 feet hit button..wait..run 15 feet..hit another button. I like to consider myself an optimist so I am hoping that future dlc will have a "true" ending. I like things that end, probably why I never tried WOW. By all means, Rage is definitely worth buying and you will get your money worth out of mutant stomping.
