Hey everyone, I have not written in on any blog post for months. I'm still here basically, so heres just a small update from what I've gotten in the pass few months:
Yeap, I picked up my PS3 in February on the eve release day of DMC4. Been great thus far, although the lack of good games which are really worth buying is seriously getting on me. I played DMC4 to death, but it wasn't what I expected it to be. Its not as good as DMC3 was, certainly its still a good game on its own.
After that, I went on to pick up Ninja Gaiden Sigma. I always wanted to play Ninja Gaiden Black back on the Xbox but didn't really had a chance to. For such a game that I've been waiting to play for such a long time, NGS did not live up to my expectations. Granted, it is indeed a pretty damn old game but just ported over to the PS3.
Finally, I have Uncharted. Sprang me a suprise that it is definitely a very good game. Wouldn't say its the best adventure/action game ever, but its definitely the best on the PS3 yet. I know people are going to shoot the game with it being a Gears of War clone but just in a forest-laybrinth-tomb setting. But having played Gears of War, I can clearly say that Uncharted is the better game on the overall. The story is just much more linear with lots of humorous and sarcastic moments where as Gears of War is just downright kill anything that moves.
There you go, I only have 3 games that I have owned thus far on the PS3. Not until 3 days ago actually, where I finally picked up the game I bought the PS3 for; Metal Gear Solid 4. Its a no brainer. This is the game that will make the PS3 what the name Playstation is all about. Of course, I don't expect MGS4 to just tear apart the 360 and Wii all on its own but for people out there still pondering to get a PS3 or not, then this is the time to do it. Fan of MGS or not, theres simply no better game on yet so far on this so called HD generation of gaming.
I got my PSP in early April. Because of the fact that I've started to lose interest in games and was actually till the point of wanting to quit gaming for good. I decided to give myself another chance, there I go to get a PSP. I know its years late but it isn't until recently the PSP has got its dose of AAA-material handheld games. The DS already has it, but the PSP.... not until now.
Its a no brainer I immedietely got Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core for the PSP. I only was a big handheld gamer back on the orignal Gameboy till the pre-Gameboy Color days, only playing Pokemon and whatnot. But since then, I never really paid attention to the handheld market much. While on the verge of quitting games, FFVII: CC changed that for me.
It brought me back to a way of enjoying games again. I know the gameplay is particularly quite shallow, but the story just changes that for me. I'm simply impressed by just how Square-Enix has done it again on an FF title. Indeed other than FFVII, I had quite a truckload of other PSP games which there are some that I have not even touched yet.
Honorable mention is of course God of War: Chains of Olympus, Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops, Tales of Eternia, DBZ Shin Budokai 2 and Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G. Its been quite a "Sony" year for me generally, having bought both the PS3 and PSP and I am currently looking for a Sony Ericsson cell-phone as well. So I guess I'll be getting another Sony product yet again later this year.
Theres quite a few more things I would like to talk about but till next time, thats all I got for now. This may sound like it comes from a Sony fanboy post, but majority of my entire gaming-life came all the way back from the PS1 to till now onto the PS3/PSP, I hope they bounce back soon and start kicking asses as the knig of console gaming again.
