And it was OK. It told me absolutely nothing about the story, but I guess I'll have to play the full game to find out. I will say this though, it's kind of a bad sign when Shepard is speaking so freely without my control. But then again, this might only be true for a few instances in the actual game. The gameplay is more or less the same from ME2, but with a nifty "roll" feature that helps in firefights.
The multiplayer was so-so, but I'm not expecting much anyway. For game like Dead Space, Uncharted, and MGS I just ignore the multiplayer component all together so that's probably what I'll do here.
Just like last year, 2012 has plenty of games that I want. I doubt I'll have the money or the time to play all of them (par for the course), but I'll still list out the ones I'll have my eye on.
The games I want that have a set release date:
Resident Evil: Revelations (when I get a 3DS)
Uncharted: Golden Abyss (if I get a Vita)
Alan Wake's American Nightmare
Silent Hill HD Collection
Mass Effect 3
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City (maybe)
Kid Icarus: Uprising (again when I get a 3DS)
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
For everything else that "might" be coming out this year:
The Last Guardian
Aliens: Colonial Marines
The Last of Us
And that's it so far.
According to my ranking system, I went from this
Fascinating. (P.S. While googling, it seems Rule 34 has a thing for this Nintendo character too. :?)
Anyway, it looks like February has some interesting games to start off this year (for me at least). So far the only ones I'm looking forward to are Alan Wake: American Nightmare and SSX. I might pick up Twisted Metal, but I never really picked up on the series so I'll just wait and see.
As for my recent gaming progress, I've been jumping in and out of Skyward Sword, New Vegas, and Rayman. I might also do some trophy hunting in Uncharted 3. I'm also up for Gears 3 tonight if anyone's interested.
On a side note, I managed to complete my entire (well except for the NES and Acid games) revisitation of Metal Gear Solid by beating MGS4. I'll save my thoughts on that game for some other time. However until then, I'll leave y'all with one simple question: How the hell does Hideo Kojima keep getting work?
That is all.
I just got out of watching The Grey, and frankly I loved it. Probably one of the best survival movies I've seen since Castaway. Liam Neeson still proves he's a badass with solid performances all around. The cinematography was great. There were some good thrills mixed in with some haunting moments. Plus, it was surprisingly philosophical for something that could have easilly been a popcorn-thriller.
I've also heard this movie angered a bunch of animal rights groups for showing wolves in a negative light (kind of like what Jaws did for sharks). I say screw em'. Anything that pisses off wolfaboos earns cool points from me.
