All About dr_jashugan
Yep, It has been a while since my last blog, but don't blame me, too much work and studies have kept me from updating. And since I'm still a Last Gen gamer (still on PS2 and old PC games), there is little I can tell about anything new.
That changed after I had my first MMO experience. Yes, my first taste of MMO, that's because I'm not interested in MMO games. But a friend at work convinced me to try Eve Online, a MMO that takes place in space. To be more precise, it's a game where you get to be a space ship pilot that navigates different types of ships on a huge variety of star systems.
Sounds fun, eh? Well, not really when you get blown away on your FIRST TUTORIAL! Yeah, you read it right. It happened after I shot the wrong ship (can happen to any rookie). The second instance after that mistake was the destruction of my ship by whomever (the police or the ship that I mistakenly took as a pirate ship).
The GOOD thing is you don't die and if you did, there is a clone at your space station that will revive and take your place. The BAD thing is you LOSE your ship with all that's in it. Oh, big deal I can just go buy another one. Sure, if you have millions in game currency, no problem. But those ships cost more than a new Ferrari (well, maybe it's because they're space ships?).
If it wasn't for my friend who lend me the money, I would be flying the basic frigate (you can get it for free, after you get blown away).
After that my friend asked me to accompany him in a mission (cool, now we're going for some real action). We were happily shooting at space pirates, when suddenly I got shot and destroyed by the space police.
WTF?!! Hey, what's the big idea?!!
To make the story short. I was shot by the police for shooting my friend's loot that was left by the pirates he destroyed. HEY, we're on the SAME TEAM!!! (you form a fleet with your partners before going on a mission).
THAT's IT, I'm leaving this game before I get shot for jaywalking or anything else!!!
If anyone is interested in trying out this game, READ THIS FIRST or get ready to be frustrated when you get obliterated (again and again) for reasons you don't know. The in game tutorial just plain sucks.
Eve Online is not for everyone. In this game anything goes. You can be the king of the hill and end up a space beggar in the next instance (after a group of happy gamers raid your ship and all your wealth) in matter of minutes. Now that's something to get really frustrated on. Lucky me, I didn't arrive to that situation.
Well, no more Eve Online for me. I'll be waiting for my next MMO which might be Guild Wars 2 (hope I don't get burned by a dragon in the tutorial).
Until next time.
When I bought Samurai Shodown Anthology (PS2), I thought that my dream to own this great series has come true. After playing it, I realized that my dream was too good to be true.
This big disappointment of mine, resulted in the creation of my FIRST review here at GameSpot. I made it just to inform (warn) other gamers of the incompleteness of this collection, which sadly, could have been great.
To make things short, one of the games (Samurai Shodown V) was totally BUTCHERED. The dialog between the characters that happen at certain moments during the game are GONE. How do I know that this is factual? It's because I own the Japanese version which is called Samurai Spirit Zero (too bad I don't read Japanese).
There is NOT even a dialog with the final boss before fighting him (LAME).
SNKPlaymore, this is a shameful way to sell your games!
I will be MORE careful with your collections in the future.
Well, we are already in the middle of this gen and I'm still at the sideline. I'm NOT buying the expensive PS3 so that I can play a few games that interest me (MGS4, FF XIII, GOW 3) and with multiplatforms looking better on another console.
I'm also NOT buying the Xbox 360 with its despicable RRoD curse (Jasper hasn't been proven, yet and screw the 3 year warranty).
Finally, the Wii isn't for me (did that rhyme?).
So, that leaves me with my BIG OLD FAT PS2. Been with me since 2003 and STILL alive and kicking. Lots of unfinished games, but what's this? More games coming for the PS2 (Devil Summoner 2, Guilty Gear Accent Core Plus, Naruto Ultimate Ninja 4)?
Although these games may not be much to brag about but still it's something to take note that there are publishers that keep bringing more games to this console.
Yes, you can say that I'm missing all the fun of the current gen, but that happens when you got a tight budget and a world in recession looming over you. All this translates into a feeling of disappointment towards the current gen.
I hope Sony and MS don't repeat their mistakes in the NEXT-GEN. Backward Compatibility and NO defective hardware, PLEASE. 8)
In the mean time, here comes Fatty PS2 to the rescue! I'll bow to the KING of last gen and admire its longevity (entering it's ninth year).
LONG LIVE PS2! Let MORE games come to you! (did that rhyme?)
