My Expectations of E3 2011

by on

E3 hasn't officially started yet but the previews have been so awesome and have me hyped more than ever. The announcements so far have been amazing. With Konami announcing the Silent Hill collection, Zone of the Enders collection and the Metal Gear Solid Collection all in HD and coming to PS3 and 360.

So with all this excitement I figured I throw a list together of what I hope to see or what I expect to happen:

Nintendo

Obviously they will show their new systemProject Cafe. Hopefully they'll have something running on it and not just screen shots or lame video of "what it can do".

Zelda: The Skyward Sword will hopefully get a release date and a demo that actually goes well.

Maybe some new and good games for the 3DS

So needless to say until I get a bada$$ next gen Zelda game I'm not really expecting much from Nintendo. Don't get me wrong NES, Super NES and 64weresome of my favorite systems and I loved what Nintendo did back then, but one can only take so much Wii Sports. To me, and this is my OPINION, the Wii lost its magic about 10 titles or so ago.

Microsoft

Rumor has it they will announce their IPTV (LOL funny when you say it out loud) app for the 360, which turns your 360 into a cable box for steaming TV programing, and they'll have a new "Diamond" level Live tier for this.

Kinect games, kinect games oh and more kinect games. I had the honor of playing one of these mind blowing monstrosities a few months back and oh boy. I know I'm white but I do have rhythm and good hand to eye coordination. This thing made me so mad at times and forget trying to play with someone in a small apartment.

Anyway as far as "real" games go, I expect Gears of War 3,Fable 4, Forza 4, Alan Wake 2, and obviously they'll show off Modern Warfare 3 and Mass Effect 3.

To me MS really needs to step it up and put some effort into first partytitles so hopefully they'll show off some new IPs and give me a reason to own my 360 outside of Gears and Halo.

Sony

Sony, Sony, Sony. Oh what a year you have had so far. Get hacked much? Despite all the trails and tribulations you are put through and despite how much of my personal information you hand over to someone I still love you but seriously get your security crap together.

I'm down with NGP yeah you know me. Sorry I had to do it andI hate that name but luckily its been changed or rumored to have been changed to Playstation Vita. Again I don't really care for it but whatever it could be called the "Super Awesome System 5000" as far as I'm concerned. I'm going to buy the thing.

With games like Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Wipout: 2048, and Silent Hill: Book of Memories how can you go wrong. Plus the new "Transfarring System" that Kojima introduced is awesome and I hope more games include that.

I'm sure the newly released Sony Experia Play will be talked about and that is one beast of a phone. To bad its limited to Verizion or I would have one.

I expect demos of Resistance 3, Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One, Twisted Metal, Final Fantasy XIII-2, Journeyand Uncharted 3. I also want to see more of the HD PSP games for the PS3. Anyone upfor some Monster Hunter?

I'm hoping for some Final Fantasy VS XIII, Killzone 4, Grand Turismo 6, The Last Guardian, Shadows and ICO Collection,maybe something on the God of War side, andValkyria Chronicles 3 on the PS3.

In Conclusion

I could ramble all night about this but with so many exciting things on the way and so many rumors going around there are about 5 thousand things I could wish and hope for and I'm sure I have forgotten something but in the end only time will tell whats going to happen and it all starts tomorrow.

Happy gaming my friends and until next time........

Haven't made one in a long time, thats all. I'm bored.

What's on Your Plate?

by on

Hey, long time no Blog.

So the year is coming to a fast end and I've been pretty happy with the games I've played this year but you know there are still some games I haven't even gotten to experience mainly because I don't have a 360 or a Wii such as

Gears of War 1 & 2

Halo 3 & ODST

Left for Dead 1 & 2

Mass Effect

Resident Evil Darkside Chronicles and Umbrella Chronicles

Assassin's Creed 2 & Bloodline

Infinite Undiscovery

Dead Space: Extraction

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: the Crystal Bearers

I'm sure theres more but I was wondering what games do you feel like you missed out on this year?

Update and Epic Thy Name is Metal Gear

by on

Well to start this off here are my new additions:

Red Faction: Guerrilla PS3

and lastly I picked up a Xbox, Halo 1 & 2 and Fable:the lost chapters for $30.

I'm still working on Chrono Cross, Star Ocean:Second Evolution, andValkyria Chronicles. I'm hoping to finish these up this month.

Lastly I for some reason threw in Metal Gear Solid 4 Saturday and I was compelled to play it to the end. This game so freakin great. I know I'm a few years late but I didn't believe until now. I still can't get all the action and great cut scenes out of my head. The story is so amazing and leaves you wanting more. I know I can't say anything that hasn't already been said about this game but thats just my two cents on it.

well thats it here until next time.....later

June Update and up coming ventures

by on

Well as for new games to the collection I picked up and/or finished:

Lord of the Rings: Conquest

Ghostbusters:Irecently finished this and gave it a 8/10, It's a very good game with a nice replay value.

Sacred 2: Fallen Angel

X-Blades: You should probably stay clear of this game. Definitely not worth the $50 I paid for it.

Prototype: It was a pretty cool game gave it a 8/10 but I think I expected more from it so I was a little let down.

Right now I'm currently playing the following games and here is just a summary of what I'm doing in each.

Valkryia Chronicles: On chapter 7 of 18 chapters I think

Chrono Cross: I'm 9 hours into the game. I'm fighting the Hydra to get the Medicine to save a certain character

Star Ocean: Second Evo; I'm 5 hours into the game. I'm looking for a specific herb for someone.

I also plan to start Magna Carta: Tears of Blood and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles soon. I'm pretty much dedicating myself to one game for all the main systems I have instead of just playing all my PS3 games right now.

In other news I have partnered up with a colleague and we are writing a script to present to a network for what we hope will be a feature film or TV series. So once some of the story falls into place I'll post here and I would like to get some feed back from you guys. Another project of ours, mainly mine, is a sci-fi horror novel which has been in development for a few years entitled Project Psychosis. If anyone is interested in that let me know and I'll send you a sample. So thats whats been going on here for the last few weeks and going forward.

Well thats about it here until next time..............later

The Thing I really dislike about RPGs

by on

I really love RPG games but the one thing that I don't like is the fact that I get so into the story that I forget to SAVE. Ugh, I have been playing Star Ocean: Second Evolution on PSP for a few days and I finally died and lost about 2 hours worth of progress because I forgot to save. If any of you have played it you will know that most of the first few hours is a lot of talking between the characters, and I mean a lot. the story is panning out to be pretty good, well so good that I forget to save, hint this blog. I also blame this current generations games since all the games on PS3 and 360 have checkpoints and I think I've gotten to used to it. What do you guys and gals think? Does it happen to you?

Later..........

My 10: The Good and Not so good.... you'll see

7. Little Big Planet

6. Prototype

Until next time......Later

Gaming update for May and E3

by on

yeah I know its June I'm behind sorry.

Well new additions to the family are

Infamous Valkyria Chronicles Little Big Planet

I completed Infamous a few days ago as a good guy on hard mode. The is really awesome. If you don't have it yet go get it. Think of Assassins Creed meets GTA4 and you have the way infamous plays. The story is pretty awesome as well. If you want any insite on it just PM me and I'll let you know. I have started an Evil playthrough as well and yes the story does change abit. The powers also differ from good to evil and I have to say I'm enjoying the evil ones more so than the good ones.

I also finished Metal Gear Solid on PS1. It was a really awesome game. I didn't expect it to have so much emotion. I can't wait to play the rest.

E3 was pretty awesome. Some how I got the Microsoft and Nintendo emblems and not the Sony one but its cool. I'm pretty hyped for a few games. mainly the big names Final Fantasy 13 and 14, Heavy Rain, The Last Guardian, God of War 3, and Assassin's Creed 2. There's probably more but I can't think of them.

The Tokyo Game Show is set for September 24th - 27th this year and I would love to go as I'm sure everyone here would but I think I really am going to try to go. See how Comic Con is already sold out, which is july 23rd - 26th if you are wondering.

Well thats enough of me. what's been going on in your world? Until next time....Later.

Short Gaming Update

by on

Well first thing is first Zathic and I have decimated Resident Evil 5's story mode. We were both awarded the Platinum Trophy. It's my first Platinum. I also played and finished Dark Sector. It's a pretty good game with an OK story. Never played the online mode.

In other gaming news I'm working on getting the trpohies for both Fallout 3 and Uncharted: Drakes Fortune part time while my main focus is completing Metal Gear Solid and Chrono Cross.

So far both games are great. Chrono Cross is a great RPG something I haven't experienced in awhile. Metal Gear is awesome. I remember playing this when it first came out and I didn't really get into it but I'm glad I decided to give it another shot.

Well thats about it here. Time to mosey.....Later

Happy 25

by on

Well tomorrow's the big day. I turn 25. Yep thats right tomorrow's my B-DAY and I'm old. So what does a 25 year old Maintenance Inventory Purchaser for a pharmaceutical company get for his birthday? Uh video games of course!

So like every other time someone gets me a gift I can always get it out of them what it is, yeah I'm a big kid, so they just give it to me and this is no exception. So here's what I got so far:

Resident Evil 5

Metal Gear Solid 4

Saints Row 2

Dead Space

So I've got more games to add to my collection and more games to add to my need to play list. I'm not really sure if thats a good thing, LOL.

As far as games have recently finish, I completed Bioshock. I was a pretty cool game, I gave it a 8.5 and I also completed Killzone 2. Really liked KZ2 I gave it a 9. Online is fun but I think I still like Resistance 2 better. I still working on Chrono Cross.

Well thats it. Hope all is well and until next time...........Later
