The last two years of E3 have been pretty underwhelming, I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels that way. However, with new consoles coming to us later this year we got to see plenty of new games, and even new IPs. Some games were pretty boring(I’m looking at you, Ryse) but a lot other games look very impressive. One thing I noticed with a lot of next-gen games is that a lot seem to be going open world. Something I welcome with open arms, I love open world games, hopefully these games are packed with content, and easter eggs as well. For once in a long time I enjoyed a majority of the games, like at least 8 out of every 10; I was very impressed. There were three games that stuck out to me the most though, these three are presented in no particular order. Continue reading
… I’m so close to caving and buying Peace Walker for the PS3, but my back log is so long as it is, I don’t want to add more to it. 😡 But then again, it’s only ten bucks and Sony pracicaly gave me ten bucks last month so its almost as if it’s Sony buying it for me instead. Besides, when will I get another chance to buy this for that price or lower? I mean after all the console gen is almost coming to an end so if it comes out for like $5 in 2 years chances are I wont care for this game anymore by that time. @_@ Decisions decisions, I’ll think about it for a little more, the sale will still be there tomorrow anyway.
Woo, I can’t wait till Thursday so I can finally play it! Playstation is also having a really neat sale for a majority of the characters in Battle Royale. I’m thinking about getting Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker for the PS3 so I can actually use one of its main features. Plus I might be able to actually beat the bosses legit. I’ll admit it, I cheated to beat the bosses, they were hard as hell, felt cheap in my opinion. But, before I actually start to consider it I want to beat kingdom of Amalur first(which is very boring by the way.) Shouldn’t take too long since I’m up to the second to last quest.
Also on an unrelated note, I’ve been having some serious ankle pains for the last month and a half. The doctor originally have me pain killers and told me to come back if the pain continues but me being as lazy as I am, i brushed it off. But it’s gotten really bad lately, even when I’m sitting or something I get a kind of burning sensation near the area. I made an appointment to go see whatever the foot doctor calls themselves, so hopefully it’s nothing too serious, and I can get rid of this pain once and for all.
The Metal Gear Solid: Revengance demo was released yesterday for Xbox 360 & the PS3(and very late might I add) and if i had to describe it to you in one word it would be: Spectacular! But lets get its problems out the way first, shall we? For starters, I found parrying to be difficult at first, I didn’t know how to pull it off, but by the boss fight with the chainsaw dog at the end I got the hang of it. Trust me, you MUST learn how to parry or that dog is just a bitch(excuse the pun), it killed me twice before i “got it”. But the more annoying problem was blade mode. Blade mode is when Raiden goes into his free cut mode. The left stick is used to control your direction while the right stick was used to control the direction of the blade. For me it was just painfully awkward to use, but I’m sure by the time the full game is released I’ll eventually get the hang of it, might even go play the demo a couple of times more as well. Also, I’m not too sure about the Xbox version since I played the demo on the PS3 but I did notice frame rate drops when I started cutting too many pieces, nothing too bad but its there.
Raiden controlled amazing and the action was just beyond awesome. It even has some nods to the series with the alert feature as well. Battling the Gekkos and cutting them up in a hundred pieces was beyond satisfying, the game even features weapons as well(the demo contained RPGs and grenades). If you have time i highly recommend downloading the demo and giving it a shot, parrying might be a bit weird but keep trying, it’ll become your best friend once you get the hang of it.
