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!)

Sonic Generations Short Review

Sonic Generations tries to do two things, please old school 2D Sonic fans and also appeal to 3D Sonic fans. Personally, I much prefer 3D Sonic as it has a much stronger emphasis on speed than 2D Sonic, but hey what do I know? The only 2D sonic games I enjoyed were the Sonic Advance series so I guess it isn’t my place to say if 2D sonic is boring or not. But anyway, Both Sonic’s world collide and are broken up so now you must race through nine different worlds to put them back together. each of the world’s has two acts, one for modern Sonic and another for old school sonic, making a total of 18 stages, plus a bunch of challenges that I couldn’t possibly care less about. All the stages are from previous Sonic games so you’ll be visiting Green Hill Zone all up to a stage from Sonic Colors. By the way, City Escape from Sonic Adventure 2 is here with a remix of the original song. Hands down my favorite stage in the entire game.

The music in the game is great, I’m not the hugest Sonic fan so I can’t compare them to their original versions excluding for songs in Sonic Adventure 2 but they all sound really great to me. The visuals are also very stunning which is helped by a good art direction. If you played Sonic Unleashed or Colors you should already know how Modern sonic plays(awesome). Old school sonic plays like as you would expect, although while I wasn’t the biggest fan of the original sonic games, Sega still hasn’t quite perfected his feel. I don’t know how to put it but he still plays a bit off. For example, he’s a bit slippery even when he’s not running at full speed which is quite frustrating. Also the final boss is a huge let down, its poorly implemented and very boring, without spoiling anything all you got to do is hold the dash button the entire fight. Also I beat the game in four hours so there really isn’t much main content. If you’re into challenge levels you’ll most likely finish it in about seven or so hours since even those aren’t all that challenging. If you’re itching for some Sonic I’d recommend this game, although not at its current price since there isn’t all that much content to justify the price, see if you can find it for $5 or something.

6.7/10

Great Day to be a PlayStation Gamer!

NiNoKuni1

PSN is having an amazing sale this week, which includes LittleBigPlanet Karting for $10 for Plus members; I highly recommend it for that price. Also a lot of demos coming out this week which include Metal Gear Revengance, Dead Space 3 and some others as well! But, most importantly, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch has finally been released! I’ve already received my copy but haven’t been able to play it yet but I’ll be posting a review once I’m done with it. I should be able to post a review of Dragon’s Dogma sometime next week if school doesn’t become to stressful, might also post some impressions of the demos releasing later on today as well, only time will tell!
