Been meaning to post something for a while. Not sure who cares or who will read it, but I feel like I should put my thoughts down somewhere. Anyways, here goes....
Motion controls: haven't been impressed with my Wii since I bought it, why do the other 2 feel it was necessary? Yes I know the answer to that question is 'truck loads of money' and creating the Casual gamer crowd. The PS Move shows most promise for being the Wii but in HD and being 1:1 with the Wii requires the Wiimotion Plus. The Kinetic just looks stupid and like it wont work very well. PS already had the Eye Toy on the PS2, so its nothing new. The games look terrible, and playing anything other then horrible mini games would be impossible. Plus if the rumors are true that you can't sit down and use it, that means that even everyday use of stuff like Netflix is out for most people. Don't know about most people, but I'm not standing up to browse the Netflix catalog. Hellz no! I'm too lazy for that.
3D gaming: Promising. Probably the way of the future. Key word being Future. Ps4, Xbox 720, Wii HD, but not now. This generation was really coming into its own and theyre confusing the hell out of it by mixing up motion controls and 3D gaming. Plus, how many people have a 3D tv? I just bought a new TV a few months ago but decided to forgo the extra $1000 to get my tv in 3D. When I dont need to wear the stupid glasses, nor do I get the headaches, then we will talk. Until then, what we have now is just fine.
Castlevania: Lord Of Shadows: up until IGN and GS reviewed it, it was receiving 9+'s all around the board. Then IGN and GS give it 7.5's. I'm one who definitly reads reviews and who takes the opinions of others to heart about games. I dont have a lot of time for games now that I'm married with 2 kids and a mortgage, and even less time to waste on crappy games. But those 2 reviews hasnt hurt my hype for this game. This is my #1 game of the year. When I saw this game at E3 I couldnt wait to get my hands on this game. It looks so sweet, and I couldnt care any less that it looks and plays like God of War. I love GoW and I think this is the perfect game to break me into Castlevania. I never really played Castlevania before. I played Super Castlevania recently and loved every minute of it. I want to play through many of the others, mainly the GBA/DS 2D games. But Castlevania or not, I'm very hyped for this game and can't wait. Only 4 more days.
Bobby Kotick: Where are the stock holders to kick this guy out? He just says stuff now on a daily basis to stir up the crowds. Ignoring him is the best thing to do.
3DS: Yes I know that the yen price translates to $300, but I dont think it will be that much $250 at most, but even still, thats beyond my price range. Ill pass till it drops. Sad, because I wanted one real bad, but thats home console price. $200 was my limit. Games do look amazing. Cant imagine how long the battery life will be with pumping out console graphics.
Thats all for now I guess. Anyone who reads this, thank you for reading my quickly jotted down thoughts and notes.
