I finally picked up a PSP!

With my birthday money this year, I decided to pick up a brand new PSP bundled with 2 games and a memory stick from GameStop - for only $70, believe it or not! I also picked up a few cool games for the system (including Killzone: Liberation, which I'm enjoying quite a bit at the moment), and overall I'm really impressed with the hardware.

As a guy who'd become accustomed to playing GBA games on the go, playing stuff this advanced on a handheld is just breathtaking to me. To think that this system is last-gen is simply amazing!

So, anyway, people who follow my reviews should expect a few PSP reviews in the coming future. I'm also enjoying L.A. Noire on the Xbox 360 at the moment, so expect a review of that one soon as well!

Cheers, and game on!

I bought an NES!

After a long time of enjoying NES games through compilations or emulators, I finally decided to pick up a Nintendo Entertainment System along with a bunch of games about a week ago. I don't own too many of the classics yet, but I'm very excited to begin building up a collection for this classic system! :)

What the HELL was I thinking?!

Recently while browsing in my local game store, I picked up a copy of the legendary Resident Evil 4 for the Gamecube. A game that's often considered one of the greatest ever made by most enthusiasts. Yet I was hesitant in picking it up for the mere price of $8. Why, you ask?

Well, I rented the game a long, long time ago and just HATED the controls. I couldn't get used to them, the game feeled too sluggish, and I just didn't like it. I didn't even make it through the first stage. So I never had a compelling urge to play it after this experience, and much less, buy it.

But, nonetheless, I convinced myself to buy this legendary video game, and now almost a week later, I've been absolutely sucked in by the world that Resident Evil 4 has to offer. This is a terrifying, extremely well-made game that has kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I'm still nowhere near the end of the game, but I want to try and savor it as much as possible... this is some of the most fun I've EVER had with a video game.

The controls took me some time to get used to, but it was sure worth it. There's a reason this game is universally acclaimed. This just begs the question.... what the hell was I thinking when I first rented the game?? Was I just stupid in my formative years??

Either way, I'm glad I've finally given this masterpiece a fair shot (maybe at around 12 years old, I just couldn't appreciate a game like Resident Evil 4), and I'm sure I'll spend a lot more time with this epic masterpiece.
