All About game_overdose54
Well, I actually am going to update this thing. For real this time. Already got two reviews in. Let's see where this goes.
Recently, I just tried out the both the demos for Crysis 2 and Bulletstorm respectively. Both are FPS's but that's nearly the only thing I actually have in common with one another. While Crysis is a graphical benckmark PC gamers get striking hard-on for spending $400 on a graphics card, Bulletstorm abandons any kind of pretense of flash most games have in todays market. Sure it's emphasis is about placing shots in your enemies netherreigons, but it has a bit of tongue in cheek humor that most games today like Call of Duty, Halo, Killzone, or Crysis lack. Bulletstorm basically says "use whatever creative way you can find to ruin someone else's likelihood of fathering mutant children", and that was all I really needed to have to get going. It's story and characters aren't going to win any awards though. They were all the same "kill these things and we enjoy it" kind of people in most shooters. But I think this may have been intended to be funny. And if you though Killzone 2 had schizo controls, play Bulletstorm. What first person game out there can you think of that has no jump function whatsoever? The controls are bare minimum and take getting used to.
This doesn't go without saying that Crysis 2 played adequately, but didn't stay in my mind as well or as long as Bulletstorm's did. Not saying it bad (I enjoyed cloaking behind my enemy and putting a knife to his midriff) and I know Crysis has an arguably heavier emphasis on story, but it just didn't leave as big a mark as I wanted it to. The demo I played was nothing more than a tech demo for me. It had all the barebones things to expect from a shooter post COD4 - customizable class based on special abilities or "perks" and outfitting and tailoring your character and ranking up with experience you get from blasting a prepubescent 10 year old punk from Montana. Nothing to really go googly eyed for.
But still, both are demos, and I liked what I saw in both of them. 2011 is going to rob my wallet and either of these my make it onto my shelf.
Also, going to post blogs here every week now, probably every Wednesday or Friday where pretty much everything game related comes out Tuesdays, giving me a chance to wet my appetite for things to come ahead. I want to be a featured blogger on Gamespot. Spread the word about me.
Looking back, I think I'm going to redo my review of that game.
