Whats Going On

Now that school is done I’ve just been relaxing and playing some games. Although not as much as I usually do since E3 was this week, overall it was a great show this year. Plus, I’ve been busy going to the gym, trying to get in better shape. So far I’ve gotten around to beating Bastion and stealthy completed Sly Cooper 4 Thieves in Time. Sly Cooper’s final boss was trash, the entire fight was quick time events. I despise those with a passion, hopefully we see less of those next-gen. I’m still playing through Soul Sacrifice, I’ve been neglecting my poor Vita(and so has Sony if E3 is anything to go by). All that I got left to do is beat Magusar, story wise that is. I still got a bunch of multiplayer quest that I haven’t beaten. I noticed a lot of people online only do sacrifice, it’s pretty annoying since I’m trying to go 99/1, but oh well.

I’ve ordered me a new game too, Persona 4: Golden. I pretty much already know what happens plot wise since I’ve seen the anime but I hear it’s a great game even if you already know the plot. I hope it’s not too grindy like Persona 3  was. I mean I’ll still beat it, it’s just that if it is, it’ll take me a lot longer. So since I’m getting Golden I thought I should try to beat Persona 4: Arena. I’ve been having it since Black Friday and I only bought it for the story mode, I don’t really like fighting games so I don’t care for the online or any of that. While I’ll be playing that on my PS3 I’ll also be playing Max Payne on PC. By the way, Max Payne is HARD! Holy shit, man. It’s so hard I had to switch the game over to easy. I really suck at shooting games. Normally I like to only play two games at a time but I figured what the hell. They’re all different genres so when I get bored with playing a fighting game I’ll switch on over to a shooter, and once I get bored with that I’ll go to an action RPG; you know, mix it up a bit. Oh, I’m also going to get my Galaxy Note 8.0 tomorrow as well! Hopefully the store has them in stock. Another thing is that I’ve noticed all my friends are nerds. They never want to do anything, they’d just rather stay home all day and play games. I love games as much as the next guy but damn, its Summer, let’s go out and have some fun too. Note to self: Make some new friends.

Sly Cooper 4 Thieves in Time Demo Impression

First off let me start by saying I’ve never played the other 3 Sly Cooper games, its not that they looked boring, I just never got around to buying it. Though after playing the demo for the 4th installment in the franchise I think its time to fix that. As I’m sure you know by know Sly Cooper is a platformer with a light touch of stealth. The demo starts off with a introduction of our cast, and what they’ve been up to since Sly 3. Sly’s segment was all about stealth, if you get detected you must restart from the last checkpoint, this part of the demo was my favorite(though it was all great). Bently, the brains of the team was about destroying obstacles with his bombs that he carries in his wheel chair. He also has a neat mini game when he begins to hack a computer, it plays pretty much like a top down shooter, nothing special about it besides it being pretty fun. Lastly, there was Murray who is the bronze of the group. He is all about beating the poop out of the enemies. Unlike Sly and Bently, Murray cannot pick pocket, instead he can lift enemies and objects. The demo ends with Carmelita, Sly’s love interest discovering Sly is up to his old tricks(She is also a playable character but unfortunately not in the demo), and chases off Sly. The gang then begins their getaway to the past using their van Back to the Future style.

After the demo Sly 4 and its HD collection is certainly on my radar, plus the game is only $40 and supports cross buy. You read that right, this game is also coming to the Vita. Sly Cooper 4 will release on Feburarey 5, 2013 in the US and March 29, 2013 in Europe.
