Over the past week I've been playing new games: Skyrim, Battlefield 3, and Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3.
Skyrim is awesome the world is so big its overwhelming. I find myself walking towards an objective then seeing something in the distance or on my radar and walking to that instead. Fighting dragons is a blast although it can be annoying depending on the terrain and whether or not other creature decide that the best time to attack you is when a dragon is flying overhead. My only real gripe with the game is companion AI, they tend to get in the way or not know how to jump off a cliff to follow you.
Battlefield 3 is awesome as well. Outside of a demo for 1943, I've never played a Battlefield game. Personally, I like it better than CoD. I haven't played MW3 so I'm not going to attempt to compare them. I just personally prefer the larger scale maps with vehicles over CoD's small scale matches.
Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 is nothing new. i owned MvC3 and loved it, I wasn't going to get this one but after seeing Nemesis in action I had to get it. (He's awesome by the way.) The new characters and costumes are great, and the new versions of levels feel fresh. Also every character has been rebalanced in some way, Akuma is still overpowered tho. I just wish they made this a DLC pack or at least give a discount to owners of the original.
Until next blog...Peace my friends
