Back in the Game!

Yea!!  My hard drive actually arrived nearly 5 days earlier than expected! Lucky for me, it was shipped from NY so I ended up getting it the same day it was shipped(yesterday). I’ve been setting up all my files up again. I was planning on playing The Witcher 2 once I got my hard drive but I think I’ll just continue focusing on Persona 4 Golden, I’m having way too much fun with it. Then after that I’ll head on to Xcom Enemy Unkown which I got from Playstation Plus.

I got to try out Sonic All Star Racing Transformed. Luckily the free to play weekend is still going on. It’s pretty fun, I would’ve bought it would stop being a jerk and work with x360ce, it won’t even open up when I put the files in the folder. 😦 I mean I can play it but its annoying since I cant pause the races unless I go back to my keyboard plus the menu controls are all wonky. Needless to say, I’ll pick it up once it gets cheaper(I’m a cheap bastard).

Oh yea, I’ve also saw Man of Steel a day or two ago, and its was… alright I guess. Not a fan of Super Man so my expectations were extremely low. Overall I guess I’d give it a 7/10. It’s the only time Super Man has ever looked even a bit interesting to me, but even then its not like the movie changed my opinion about him. Until next time, tomorrow I’m heading over to my college so my advisor can help me get my stuff in order for Brooklyn College(yea, they FINALLY sent me a letter, yay!)

American Nightmare Is so Frustrating

Jeez, this game is so repetitive and it doesn’t even try to hide it. You literally do the same missions for the same people. I’m doing it for the third(and hopefully last) time. Thank god I got this game for like 2 dollars or some shit like that, I would’ve felt so ripped off if i spent $15 on this. Shame too since the original Alan Wake is such an amazing experience. Well for what it’s worth the story continues two years after the originals ending, at least the story isn’t bad. I don’t want to spoil the game for anyone since Alan Wake is a very story driven series but Remedy’s idea for American Nightmare doesn’t translate so well into a game, hell, I don’t even think it’ll work on television or movies either. For those that have played the game, you know what I mean.

Xbox One Still Disappoints

I was literally expecting nothing good from that conference. In fact the only reason I was even semi interested was because as a hardcore gamer I can’t help but get even the slightest bit interested for gaming hardware, even if I have no intention of ever buying one(Oyua for example, thats a piece of shit but when it was first announced I was quite curious about it.) So basically anything could’ve excited me, but I still ended up disappointed. Holy crap they spent SO much time talking about sports, SOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH TIME! first the fantasy football crap then EA and then even more sports crap. Personally I don’t like sports, well, what I mean is that I don’t watch them or play video games about them. If I wanted to play sports, I’d go out, and you know, actually play sports. More of the Call of Duty + Microsoft exclusive timed DLC, EA also cuddling with Microsoft with some exclusive DLC and so on. Does timed DLC really make people buy said game on 360? If anything it makes me simply rather not buy the game at all since apparently to Activision my money isn’t worth enough to receive content the same day as 360 users. But I don’t care much about that since I tend to ignore games with timed dlc or simply just have an excessive amount of DLC. Microsoft also seems to be biting the hands that feed them, blocking used games, requiring internet connection, kinect required and maybe one or two things that I’m missing. Oh yea, apparently you still need to pay to play online as well. Well fellow consumers, I hope you make the right choice and not buy the Xbox One. It’s clearly designed for publishers instead of consumers, which I don’t get the point of that since its us that they’re trying to sell the One to, not the publishers.

 

Oh yea, hey Sony, I just thought of the best slogan for you guys: 4 is better than One. You’re welcome. 😛

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.
