All About retromikecm
Bought this game after a few days to think about if I really wanted to play it. Turns out I did and was a good purchase because now I don't have to worry about trying to find this in my local movie theaters. The game is short and rather simple with mashing a button the whole time, but there is a certain charm here that most games getting an HD remake fail to attain. Now I don't have to make sure I bring a pocket full of quarters with me to the movies for my friends and I to get our X-men fix.
Worth the $10 for those who grew up playing it, but maybe not for the newer generation of gamers.
First off, I'm not one to get excited for this day. This year however, was the year to get some sweet games that I didn't manage to pick up because I was probably playing Call of Duty or Street Fighter and they went off my radar. Also, one year I was looking for TV's and found one that was cheaper before black friday; which made me completely disregard the day all together. At this moment, I have had the pleasure of staying inside and doing my black friday shopping online with amazon.com and snagging up the following deals:
Metal Gear Solid 4, Infamous and Fallout 3 (All PS3)- $10 each
3D Dot Game Heroes (PS3) - $15
Final Fantasy XIII (PS3) - $17
$62 for all of these games was well worth it in my eyes. Judging from the previous prices that these games were originally, I have saved around $41 have I bought them at normal price. I cannot wait to finally delve into all of these fine games that should have been bought months or even years ago. Too bad I have to wait a week or so for them to get here because I want to play them all now!
Did you buy anything for black friday? If so, was it a really good deal?
Hey guys. Like many people this week, I purchased Black Ops. I'm really enjoying it. The online multiplayer definitely seems to have more balance compared to MW2, but doesn't come without some flaws.
From what I've played over the past few days, I've noticed that the spawn system could use a little tweaking so that the enemy players don't spawn right behind you. Some of the hit detection with melee attacks are just absolutely unrealistic; especially when someone knifes you when they aren't even looking at you or you are on the other side of them. The launcher that you are able to purchase after level 30 shows that it has the highest possible accuracy and damage, but doesn't seem to hit aircraft on the first missile after lock-on; then goes on to always manage to hit and destroy the aircraft on the second missile. Lastly, small maps like nuketown are utterly unplayable once someone receives a chopper gunner and would benefit the other team if they were to spawn inside a house instead of the backyard when this happens.
These are just a couple things that caught my eye while playing. Flaws aside, the game itself feels like a mix between MW2 and Halo Reach in that most people that are used to breaking away from the pack will find themselves in a world of hurt when going up against more than one enemy; thus forcing people to stick with their teammates. Along with that, some of the guns don't deal as much damage and don't seem to be as easily accessible to newcomers; which would come from the loss of the stopping power perk and auto lock-on feature when tapping the left trigger or L2. Overall, I say that the game is much better for the changes that have been made since last years iteration, but cannot see a reason to really get into another game next year if they keep the current formula for online multiplayer.
