Whats going on everyone?
It's currently about 3:00am and I'm pretty bored so I thought I'd give you all an update type thing to let you know what I've been up to. I've been pretty busy with the traditional school/work combo but luckily I only have about a month left.
This is my 4th semester in college and it's been going pretty well. I'm taking a variety of ****s including Marketing, US History (1865-Present Day), Speech (like giving a speech, I can already speak properly lol), and of course English
Well enough about school since that's boring so let's get to the gaming business. I have played a bunch of games since '10 started so I guess i'll talk about those. So far I've bought:
- Heavy Rain
- Battlefield: Bad Company 2
- God of War 3
- Assassin's Creed 2
- Megaman 10
- Megaman X5 (PS1)
I'm going to do a quick review pros/cons ****of each game and try to keep them as spoiler free as possible
Unique - Interesting Story - Does a great job of making you actually care what happens to your characters- Suspenseful- Great graphics (especially facial animations) - Great character development
The voice acting is a little off and some of the voice actors are French guys trying to speak with an American accent so some words sound odd - Some screen tearing issues - Minor plot holes - Slow start
Overall, I really, really enjoyed this game. It was unlike anything I have played before and it was really refreshing from shooting and killing things non-stop (although killing things is always fun). I have to keep this kind of brief due to spoilers, but if you're looking for a unique experience and a game that will really grasp your emotions, than Heavy Rain will certainly deliver.
Should you buy it? YES
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (MP Only, even though I have beat the campaign)
Better than Modern Warfare 2 (FACT) - Balanced multiplayer - Lots of customizations (Guns, attachments, equipment/gadgets) - Vehicles are effective but far from overpowered - Nice variation of maps - Dedicated servers so lag is very minimal - Excellent visuals
Only can speak to your 3 other squad mates, makes it tough when you need to tell someone in your squad to do something - Only 3 game modes (Conquest, Rush, and Squad TDM)
Bad Company 2 is definitely worth a purchase. If you're a fan of FPS and are sick of being noob tubed and commando knifed on MW2, than I strongly suggest picking this up. One thing to consider though is the game to TONS better if you're playing in a squad with friends versus playing by yourself or with randoms. I suggest having some friends get the game as well to enhance your experience with it.
God of War 3
The game is ****ing amazing
The trilogy has come to an end
My ONLY complaint with the game was the lack of unlockables. Pretty much all of the skins are from pre-order bonuses. I like the different tasks you had to do in GoW1 and 2 in order to have all the skins.
Other than that, any self respecting PS3 owner should have this game in their collection. If you like action games, hell, even if you don't, buy this game. It delivers on every aspect as far as gameplay, story, graphics, music, EVERYTHING. If you're reading this right now and the game is not in your possession, stop reading right now and go buy it. Seriously
Assassin's Creed 2
Excels upon everything from AC1 - Great variation in missions - Lots of weapons that are fun to use - Good length (took me about 18 hours to beat the game) - Great depiction of the Renaissance Era - Ezio is a Renaissance version of Nathan Drake - Lots of side missions, things to collect and explore once you've beaten the game
Heavy screening tearing - Graphical glitches (some textures to buildings or the ground never pop in)
This game was actually recommended to me from you all from my last blog. I actually got if off Amazon for $15 (they had it for $35 and I had $20 towards any game). I really enjoyed the game a lot and would like to thank all of you for recommending it to me. I think it's actually down to $30 on Amazon now so if you haven't bought it I strongly suggest you get it. I'm really anticipating the third installment of the game as well. I also got the Platinum for it right before I wrote this :)
Alright so there are some quick reviews for those games in case any of you were on the fence about buying any of them. Hopefully they weren't too terrible since I have very little experience reviewing games. Anyway, thanks for reading and hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend!
