All About EvilSelf
Haven't been around for a couple of weeks now, but been gaming regularly. I bought and finished Spec Ops The Line (review coming up eventually and it is a great game) and then I bought Hitman Absolution, but didnt receive it until yesterday. Bummer! Because today is the day Metro Last Light arrives and I will be busy exploring the underground Moscow tunnels!
This might be the last new game I purchase this year, unless something extraordinary happens
Thats it for now on the gaming front.
In other news the English Premier League is almost over and there is a vital game today when my beloved Arsenal squares off with Wigan. It is a must win game for both teams, so it should be a goal-scoring affair. Yesterday was the last day I watched ice hockey, since the Capitals and Ovechkin got splattered by the Rangers. At home! It was a disgrace and I dont know what else the Caps have to do to succeed in the playoffs. It must be a psychological thing! Both my teams Caps and Arsenal FC seem to have the same issue: almost to the top, but not quite.
Well, that is it for now. Waiting for my work day to be over, then off to GameStop to pick up Metro Last Light and step in Artyoms shoes once more.
Lately, i have been playing the Survival mode of Gears of War Judgment. The lack of Horde mode kind of upset me in the beginning, so i have been addicted to the mode that resembled it the most - Survival.
I am growing to like it a lot, to be honest. It is fast-paced, it is very strategic and tactical, so you better have some decent Gears players on your side.
The first thing i do NOT like about it is its length. It lasts only 10 waves. Of course, they could be hard and all, but i wish they had the 50 waves thing from Gears 3. Once you happen to have good co-op partners around you (ones that know what they are doing) and once you "get into the groove", 10 rounds is just not long enough for me.
The second thing i am not overly fond off is the fact you cannot choose different weapon load. For example, it adds to the flexibility of the game if your Engineer can pick up a Lancer or something that will alter the gameplay and tactics on a particular map. I would have given the freedom of players choosing what weapon they want equipped in ONE of the available slots.
So, a 50 wave Survival mode, class-based, where you can pick ONE of your class character's weapon of your choice? That sounds awesome to me...
Besides that, i thoroughly enjoy it, especially with good, tactical players by your side...
I completed Bioshock Infinite a week ago (personal review can be accessed thru the link below and thanks for checking it out) and in my humble opinion : it delivered!
Columbia is great to explore and the characters that Ken Levine and his crew created are diverse and well-written. Sure, there are small blemishes here and there, but the story and the ending were sublime, I thought. Anyway, I will be starting a new playthrough soon (1999 playthrough), which would further cement Infinite's place near the top of my all-time favorite games. I am sure of it.
Till next time,
