All About ZapperZrock
It has been a very long time since i have done one of these and what better way then by grading the demo of DmC.
Now what i thought of it before was that this is not Dante and this is not devil may cry. So did the demo change my mind?
ABSOLUTELY....not. Its not bad and its not great. Its first problem are the controls. They just lack the control over the character. It just feels like i'm flailing about not really doing anything. The way the game wants you to play is heres your enemy send it flying and juggle it in the air because gravity does exist. I feel like i'm playing as nero because you can ether pull them to you or you to them. The only time i go to them is with the stinger or the trickster abilities and the game doesn't have the stinger or styles. Alright it has both but not the way i want it. Stinger happens randomly since its not in the movelist and the styles are angel/demon which are just annoying to use.
After i played the boss fight and was then sickened because it wasn't a devil may cry game where Dante would do something bada$$ and go about saying why he was better than the boss. Instead it was like silent hill. It was just an eyesore to look at then i got to listen to both of them saying F*ckU to each other for a minute before the fight actually began. Overall i am still very disappointed with it but thats all i just hope i'll get to see Devil May Cry 5 the way it should be.
Its been awhile since i've bother to post a blog. After the holiday season stuff i can ring in the year of the Water Dragon. Fun stuff to think about their.Whatcan the stars tell about your life is odd. Where doyou the origins for these mythos came from? All answers about the past seem shrouded in mystery. Thats enough of my ramblings on philosophe.
Well lets see recent updates. Got me some of J Scott Campbell art books that were signed by the man himself in great condition. The box that it came was pretty beat-up and inside my books that had bubble tape wrapped around them and some paper stuffing. Plus the books have a plastic casing which keeps them safe from the elements. Mark Crilley has a how to draw book that goes the distance where some dont go far enough. This is worth a look at when it comes out in March.
Finally picked up FFXIII and still on ch1. I have two problems with it. (1) the claims that it breaks systems and (2) i got it used which i hate. EB games or gamestop whichever you call it is the most evil part of the industry (besides capcom).Why you ask. They over priced games and you know it. You cant return a game even if you never opened it for store credit which is half the value of said game. This was all yesterday. Went to superstorewhich must be Canada only store which is like walmart seeing how its across the street from it but back to the story. I saw marvel vs capcom3 for $35 and right next to it UMVC3 for $38 b@stards. The things they sell.
You know i got java updated and that fixed my image loading problems and wouldn't you know i cant upload again...
November 1. Well whos sick of christmas already cause i am. This year the stores had all that crap up in October when its all about Halloween. Not a Holiday by technical, but its better than fearing what goes bump in the night. I think last year i did some artical on it and its origin.
Today is when uncharted 3 comes out. I also happen to be watch a review on it by people whos opinion on games are good not biased. The uncharted series for me has had very very good stories in them with minor control problems. NaughtyDog has been able to craft very human characters. It brings this head to head with Indianan Jone and Nathan Drake for greatest male treasure hunters seeing how Laura Croft is up their too. The charcters in any medium are THE most important part of a story.
With the talk of great characters one of my favorites Batman and his two games Arkham Asylum/City. I believe it took me a week to beat both games. Asylum was great for everything EXECEPT boss fights. How can this be? Other than that near perfection. City Made the environment more open with respawning enemies. Combat made even better with the original being very solid. The negatives are bosses and the story. The story just lacks what asylum had. Batman villians make very short appearances then run off. They lack the depth that the characters have in the comics. The sidemissions where apparently alot. I count 12 where some are divided into three parts which you must wander around the city to find. Then the riddlers crap and i don't think i've resented a character more than him in this game. He's the last one on my list here. Now the biggest issue is the dlc. Catwoman is $10 if you didnt buy it new. Robin will $7 just like nightwing and they come with two challenge maps. The icing on the cake are all the batman skins which will be $5-$7. That should be in the game not here it is at release. If anything wait till january and add some side stories with them or something better than challenge maps.
Well thats the break down. Enjoy playing all the crappy games that will come out after this day. Take care.
