Nier is a very underrated game. It's a fun action-RPG and it's oddness and visuals remind me of ICO. It is one of my favorite games on the PS3. lol
The 3DS is awesome, playing online in Mario Kart 7 without experiencing any lag is pretty neat too, I hope other games with good online multiplayer show up on the system. What I want is more JRPGs on the platform, however,I know it hasn't even been a year yet, but damn the DS was King of JRPGs lol
Last thing the 3DS e-shop counts Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3Das an RPG. Filter results by RPG and Ocarina of Time shows up, and I agree.
That concludes my update...for now...
Cursed shipping issues!
I was awaiting the release of Atelier Totori on Sept. 27th. It ended up missing it's shipment everywhere it seems. Atelier Totori is one of my most awaited games this year since I adored Atelier Rorona. Ah, well, I might pick up the ICO Collection to make the wait easier, and I suppose I still have to assassinate my way to level 50 in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood (only around 14 levels to go!)!
Two new reviews up, Hyperdimension Neptunia, a niche JRPG for the PS3. It has gotten a lot of crap thrown at it and I honestly can't see why, I enjoyed it enough to get the platinum trophy in it (which took me about 80 hours). The other is Disgaea: Hour of Darkness on the PS2, it's the start of something great let me tell you! To be honest, the first game is my least favorite of the four.
Until next time, children! This is Three-Dawg! AWOOOO! (God he's awesome!) lol
A new love has entered my life, I already had two others, but it seems my heart has been stolen away by the bewitching Catherine, sorry Dead Space 2 and Alice: Madness Returns! Catherine is definitely my Game of the Year 2011 so far!
Four new reviews up, all of which are Horror titles; Silent Hill, an excellent Horror game for the original PlayStation (available now as a PSOne Classic on PSN!), Silent Hill 2, an amazing Horror game for the PlayStation 2 and obviously an improved sequel to Silent Hill (available now as a PSOne Classic on PSN! Silent Hill 2 not available on PSN...yet...), Shadows of the Damned, a fun little stroll through Hell and finally, Catherine, one of the most gripping games I have ever played.
Bottom line, buy Catherine and Silent Hill Collection (Silent Hill Collection not yet available) lol
inFAMOUS 2, great game. Can't stress that enough. Like the first, it had an epic opening and ending. Gamespot's 7.5 seems really low for it. Sucker Punch earned the 'Sucker Punch proudly presents' line in the credits.
On another note, I am obsessing over Tales of Symphonia, going to start playing the game (again), I'm watching the anime and I'm on the hunt for Dawn of the New World, which is rare where I'm from.
Also, planning on getting Dissida 012 (Duodecim) Final Fantasy today, has the weirdest name for any game I've ever played but the first was great fun.
I've got four new reviews up, the original Dead Space, great game, I played through that game around 8 times and got all the trophies in it twice lol, SAW, not a bad game but not so great either, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, I'm just giving the 10s away and Luigi's Mansion, an underrated game I must say.
Until next, children! This is Three Dog, AWOOOOO, and you're listening to Galaxy News Radio, bringing you the truth, no matta how bad it hurts!
It's been a while since my last update! lol
A new game has entered my life and might beat Dead Space 2 for my GOTY so far.
It's a lot more fun than I thought it would be and it has a great story and great artwork ontop of that! I've been charmed by Wonderland lol
Three new reviews added, American McGee's Alice, it's a free add-on for Madness Returns if you buy new, Sonic Unleashed PS3 and Sonic Unleashed Wii. I will warn that my Sonic Unleashed Wii review mostly compares to the HD review.
Keep on gaming everyone!
I have only one game on my mind that I need to buy and it's an expansion pack lol
It's all I really care about getting right now lol But I'll buy the SOCOM 4 Full Deployment bundle if PSN comes back before Firday, along with Killzone 3!
I'll probably end up hating SOCOM 4 though. Another thing I want to mention is Operation Flashpoint: Red River's review here at Gamespot, they didn't seem to like it very much which is a disappointment since I thought the reviewers would enjoy Codemaster's second attempt. Here's the link for those who are interested. http://www.gamespot.com/ps3/action/operation-flash-point-red-river/review.html
Three new reviews up this time; Assassin's Creed, Assassin's Creed II and Red Dead Redemption. All are amazing games and all my praises will be repetitive by the time you are finished reading them lol It's hard not to use the word "fantastic" when talking about those three games!
Well, until the next time! PSN will hopefully be back soon or I'll start to go nuts!
I have finally reached 10 platinum trophies! My latest victim was Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. It has not aged well that's for sure. I'll tell you all about it when I finish the rest of the trilogy, then I'll review all three, Sands of Time HD, Warrior Within HD and Two Thrones HD, all at once. I need PSN back up so I can sync my trophies...
I posted two new reviews, God of War III and Dante's Inferno, both are decent games, but both get really repetitive, as you'll find out if you read my reviews or go and play them. I haven't figured out what my next review(s) will be. I'm trying to finish Sonic Unleashed on Wii so I can review the PS3 and Wii version together, don't know when that'll happen though.
Until next time, people! For you PS3 gamers like me, hold on a little while longer, we can survive!
I happened to find a copy of the original Dragon Warrior at a pawn shop, and of course I bought it! So now I finally have an RPG for my NES (plus is actually has a working battery save, even after around 22 years)! I also happened to find the original Ninja Gaiden and Ninja Gaiden II also for the NES, I almost have 10 NES games now.
BTW, two new reviews up. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and it's sequel. Next might be God of War III and Dante's Inferno.
Thinking about picking up a 3DS on Thursday or Friday. Sure, there's not much of a reason, to get one yet, but this might be the only chance I have to get one for a while. That and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D (had to type it out!) is apparently being released June 19th. That's not THAT far away.
I also got a review for Demon's Souls up. It's not my best since I felt most of it had to be forced, I honestly felt like I had nothing to talk about in it. Well, I'm going to start announcing my reviews from now on and I'll be working on one for the PS3 version of The Force Unleashed and maybe The Force Unleashed II right after!
There has been a constant flood of epicly amazing games released within the past two years. Red Dead Redemption, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Dante's Inferno, Mass Effect 2, Dragon Age: Origins, Assassin's Creed II, Dragon Age II, God of War III, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Dead Space 2, Bulletstorm,the list goes on.
It's a great thing to see so much good games come out of a market overblown with generic first-person shooters, but I think they should slow down or the industry will wear itself out, and that's not good for any gamer. With all these games coming out, it's hard for the average mortal to keep up, but if it slowed down a bit it will give gamers a well needed break.
That's weird, how did your Mass Effect get in my Dragon Age?
The enemies in Dragon Age II are too tough considering you have to keep tapping the Cross/A button! Otherwise, Mass Effect: The Medievil Edition is looking pretty good! Might have to get it launch day!
I am constantly being amazed by Visceral Games the past week. Not just because of Dead Space 2 (which is amazingly epic BTW) but because of the things I hear them doing, two things mainly; someone's dog broke their copy of the game, Visceral heard about it and sent them a hand drawn picture of Isaac scolding their dog along with a extremely signed copy of the game. They also decided to put custom controls in the PC version because it wasn't allowing people with disabilities to play it (custom controls are common on PC I'm pretty sure but Visceral is doing it because they heard about this problem). Not to mention Dead Space Extraction is free on PS3 for a little while.
So not only are their games amazing, but their developers as well! Keep up the good work, Visceral!
FINALLY! I guess it was a good idea to wait and not import it. It was 90+ bucks to import compared to it's (most likely) 69.99 over here. Played it Japanese demo and it was pretty fun, can't bloody wait! My day has been made!
I'm starting to play through Brotherhood and it reminded me of how much I love the series. I haven't even gotten started of Brotherhood and I can't wait until the final adventure for Desmond. I also find it really funny that the plot involves a disaster that's going to wipe out humanity and it takes place in 2012, and ACIII might not arrive until 2012...
What is it about Horror games that scare people (myself included)? The creatures and monsters are just data burned onto a disc and can never cross over to our world (at least not yet) so why are they so damn scary? Silent Hill is the worst for this!
