All About frogsoblivion21
When the pictures were released revealing Tron controllers for Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii, my jaw dropped. I had to have one. I got a closer look at them at PAX which deepened my craving for them. When I got back home in Oregon, I had totally forgot about the controllers until I went to Fry's and saw them on the shelf. Without skipping a beat I grabbed an Xbox 360 Tron controller and ran to checkout with a huge grin on my face. This controller looks like the real deal.
Plugging the controller in (yes, it's corded) the bright blue glow comes to life, complimenting the black base color. It's beautiful. Holding the controller feels equally as good. There's grip on the left and right sides of the controller and the part where the palms go is a bit fatter - making my rather large hands fairly comfortable. The look of the buttons remain largely the same. A,B,X,Y are in a Tron style font and moved slightly closer to one another. The Back and Start buttons are slimmer and positioned slightly higher than on a normal controller. All buttons (including L3 and R3) have a rather loud click noise when pressed in and the Guide button is pretty flat.
Unfortunately the controller is just good looks. The thumb sticks don't have as much resistance to them like a regular 360 controller would and the face buttons (A,B,X,Y) require a more involved press to get any result. While playing Super Meat Boy I found the A button wouldn't immediately pop back up, instead it would stay down for about a second longer and then pop up. I did find that the controller is fine for slower games that don't require much immediate input. The D-pad is the worst thing here. It's incredibly loose and doesn't provide accurate input whatsoever, making playing something like Pac-Man a terrible experience.
The Tron controller is something you probably shouldn't buy unless you're a hardcore Tron fan or need something cool to look at. It's a poor controller that has an incredibly nice shell.
You need to play Machinarium. It's a wonderful indie title that featues a downright georgous art style, charming characters, clever puzzles, and a beautiful soundtrack. It's hard not to like it.
For years now I've been wanting to play Persona 3 & 4. I've been seeing a bunch of these games be played and have heard so many positive things about them that I might have to track these games down. They seem right up my alley, since I enjoy just about every RPG known to man. I might have a position of Fry's Electronics soon so I'll pick them up there. One reason why I haven't picked them up already is because I don't have a Playstation 2 at the moment. My friend currently has it and my PS3 isn't BC. Just for the record, he's in Michigan and I'm in Oregon. So I've been thinking of either getting another PS3 with BC, and then give my old PS3 to my parents, or track down a PS2 and be done with it. I'm also running into space issues with my current PS3 so that'd be another reason to get a new one. I might have to delete Home. Oh no!
I've been playing X-Blades over the past couple days for review. I had to obtain a copy myself since Southpeak seemed to have forgot to send my review copy. But now that I've played it I'm starting to question myself as a person. Why did I ever have any amount of hype for this game? Yeah it looks pretty and the controls and good, but the structure of the whole game is so dated and boring. I thought the last game to play like this was going to be Golden Axe: Beast Rider. Since it did so poorly that should of been a hint to not make games like this! I don't know if I have it in me to finish the game.
Star Ocean: The Last Hope is also on my to-do list. I'm on disc two, about 30 hours in. It's been a complete blast so far. Though, I did encounter a part that made me quit for a few days. While this error was mostly my fault, I couldn't help but be annoyed. When I go through dungeons I comb through them, getting every last treasure chest. This cave I was in took me a few hours to get through. I gained atleast 5 levels and had obtained every chest so far. I see a save point, but then I see another chest to open. I run twords the chest, eye's big as can be, mouth wet, skipping for joy. Then a cutscene triggers. Then a boss appears. I look at my HP and MP, gone. Game over. I never could save.
