Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning is Overrated

Seriously, this game is SOO boring. It’s structured like an MMO with a bunch of go to A then to B and then return to A.  The only good thing about the game is it’s combat and even that gets boring after about five hours. The enemies are stupid and just do the same moves over and over, plus you can’t jump so sometimes its a bit annoying traversing through the game. Honestly, I don’t even remember why I wanted this game in the first place, but on the bright side it only cost me $20 so it’s not like i spent full price. Also, I’m almost done so that’s another bonus. After this I’ll most likely either move on to Sleeping Dogs or one of  the games I got installed on my PC. Maybe Sonic Generations since I hear that game is pretty short.

HOLY SHIT, BIOSHOCK INFINITE!!!

HOLY CRAP, MAN!! MIND= BLOWN!! I was expecting a plot twist, but my god they’re so many in like the last 30 minutes. While I feel that the gameplay is a slight downgrade compared to the original BioShock, the story blows the orginal’s out of the water, especially them plot twists! Go beat BioShock Infinite NOW, and if you don’t own it, GO BUY IT!!!

PELL Sucks

Finally got my PELL check today(I don’t know how other states do it but basically its money that the state gives me for school, which normally is about 1.9k) and I was oozing with excitement when I saw it on the table to my house. I open it up and to my surprise I only received a measly $26 😦 what the hell am I supposed to do with that!? I was planning on buying me a PSP Go & Soul Sacrifice(which by the way is completely awesome!) with it; and then save the rest for when I transfer. Super disappointed right now. 😦

I Want a PSP Go

For the last couple of days I’ve had this itch for some older games and I’ve been using my hacked PSP 3000 for my emulating needs. But the thing with it is that I have no space for it in my bag and all 4 of my pockets in my jeans are occupied at every moment so I can’t really bring my PSP with me. But that’s when I remembered about Sony’s forgotten little step child– the PSP Go. Sure, it’s completely and utterly useless if you want to play PSP games on it since the best PSP games aren’t on the PS Store(which by the way is also garbage. Sony needs to get their shit together and have the store updated early in the morning at a consistent time, not whenever the hell they feel like it, even Nintendo gets that much right.), but what if it had CFW(Custom Firmware)? It would become portable emulator heaven, that what happens. What makes the PSP Go so good for that is its size, its like the size of an iPod which means its small enough that I can put it in my pocket next to my phone.

So I’ve been looking around for one in the internet and I think I found a fair deal for one(mind you that a brand new Go cost more than a Vita, absolutely ridiculous) but now I’m debating with myself if its worth the purchase, which is about $80. I mean after all, I honest to god regret picking up my Xbox since I don’t really use it much and Microsoft isn’t supporting it anymore neither($400 .down the drain). Well, I’ll think about it for a day or two before I make my final decision. Meanwhile, Its back to Soul Sacrifice.

Soul Sacrifice Demo Out Today

552816_10151621328231803_1090094330_n

Soul Sacrifice’s demo will finally be released today which means I’ll finally make my decsion later today as to wither i want it or not. It looks like another Monster Hunter clone and I’m not really a fan of that franchise, but, at the same time I also did actually enjoy Gods Eater which is also a MH clone. So I’ll have an open mind with this one. Honestly I hope its good because I don’t really have much to play on my Vita at the moment.

A Game I Totally Forgot About

Yesterday while spending some time with the family I went into a Gamestop and started glancing around. I saw some of the typical games that I want but patiently wait for a price drop(Catherine, Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, Persona 4 Golden, etc.) but while looking I noticed some games that I really wanted to play but was waiting for a price drop and when it did finally drop, I just forgot about it completely. One that really caught my eye was Rock Band 3, a franchise that I always had my eyes on but never got to it simply for 1 reason: the goddamn cost it takes to get the full experience.

When I saw the drums I thought to myself “holy shit, I totally need this game,” but my god does it cost an arm and a leg simply for plastic that is only good for 1 game(not to mention the space it takes.) Anyway, Rock Band 3 was hands down the one that I really wanted to get because of the keyboard. But like I said earlier, I wasn’t about to spend like +$120 on a single game, so I never got to it. Plus, it didn’t help that I didn’t have any friends who played it so it would pretty much only be me playing with random people online which is what I normally do but when I play co-op games I prefer to play them with people I actually know. Unfortunetly the drums are still way too expensive and with this console generation ending I feel that I’ll never get a chance to try this game out. It’s too bad I don’t got the cash to be throwing around to get the instruments, I bet this game is a lot of fun.
