Finally found ample time to post my April gaming update.
First and foremost, i finally bought an SNES!!!!!!!!:D:D:D I never had one when I was younger, but I always wanted. As a kid My parents didn't know the the difference with consoles, a video game was a video game and since i already had a genesis, i thought it would be enough. I used to go over my neighbors house to play, and i had a lot of gaming memories from it. Well now I finally own one. Im borrowing games from my girl right now but i plan on collecting a lot of classics. I suppose i should make a list, but ill keep this one short. i don't want to end up with a hundred carts of games i know i didn't even want to play.
Besides my snes, I picked up Devil May Cry 4 for the ps3. There is still a lot of games i have yet to pick up, but im getting around to it.
I beat 2 games in April : Tombraider and God of War Ascension
Tomb Raider was a fun game. it took a little while to get started, but when it did, it was an awesome ride. Plot wise, it was okay.voice acting for the most part were good with the exception of some of the shipmates that were stranded on the island. I didnt really get the motivation of the antagonist for a long time and some of my fellow companions were annoying or underdeveloped. The saving grace to the plot was the growth of lara croft during the game. Gameplay wise this game had a lot of pluses. the gunplay was better than uncharteds, but the platforming wasnt as good but it was still pretty fun. the caves werent as exciting as they could be but it wasn't annoying or too distracting. Nice pacing and good(but not great) visuals. 8.0
God of war ascension was a good game and i liked this better than gow2. everything was solid and everything felt like a god of war game but the only problem was it came out too soon. I liked Kratos showing a bit of compassion, but he didn't have too many parts where he talked. He was just along for the ride as much as we are. Platforming was good but nothing special, and the combat is the same: violent and satisfying but it didn't deviate too much from the formula. I have to point out that the scale of the boss fights were impressive and probably the highlight graphically and gameplay wise. I didnt try the multiplayer yet but other than that it was pretty solid. hopefully they will put god of war franchise on a hiatus. last i heard, this game isn't selling too well. 8.0
thats it for april...game on
