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
Aww, my controller didn’t arrive this weekend so I didn’t really play my PC much. Plus my step father brought his annoying kids over without a heads up so I wasted my entire weekend entertaining his kids while he locks himself in his room watching tv. My mom was even more upset since she had to take care of his kids as well on mothers day. Now why didn’t he just leave them over at their house so they could spend time with their mom is beyond me. Well the good news is that they’re gone. Hopefully they don’t come next weekend; I truly hate it when they come, always have to cancel all my plans for them as if they’re my fucking kids.
Why are people so willingly to spend +$20 on season passes? The publisher is basically telling you “Hey give us some extra cash and you’ll get the DLC when it comes out, but we’re not going to tell you what the DLC is.” why, WHY would ANYONE buy one!? Do you have so much disposable income that you just don’t care and buy it anyway? In recent example, the Injusice season pass just came out with the first of the four characters(with Bat Girl being the second character that I believe still hasn’t been officially acknowledged. Why the fuck is it so god damn hard for publisher’s to tell you exactly what you’re paying early for? The only logical explanation I can think of is that people might not like what the DLC is and won’t buy the pass. But to be quite honest that’s no excuse. Note, that my issue isn’t the season passes themselves(which I don’t ever purchase, I’ve already spent $40-60 on the game and already you want more? As Cartman would say “haha, suck my balls.”) But that they want our money and don’t even tell us exactly what we’re buying. What makes it worse is that people bend over and buy it. -_-
Well like I said yesterday, I was looking around the internet for a controller so I could play on my PC. I’ve been using my wireless PS3 controller connected via usb but I’d rather not keep playing like that since it messes up the battery of the controller, it’s happened to me before. So I was going to go with the official Xbox 360 wired controller but then I found the MLG controller which can be customized to either the PS3 layout or 360 layout. Now this was great for me because as a PS3 gamer I much prefer the analog sticks to both be on the bottom and the dpad to be on top. But, unfortunately it cost 100 dollars. So instead of just giving up I decided to buy one from the Amazon Warehouse for $65. If you’re not familiar with Amazon’s Warehouse everything is pretty much used so yea. I’ve never bought anything from Amazon Warehouse or anything used online so I don’t know how good it’ll be when it comes. The original package contains 4 analog sticks(2 360 style and 2 PS3 style) and 2 dpads(1 360 and the other PS3), 2 different styled plates, weights to make the controller heavier or lighter, and a small case to fit all this in. I’m hoping it comes with everything but I should probably lower down my expectations so I don’t end up disappointed otherwise. Hopefully it works so I don’t have to return it; I’ve never returned anything online so to be honest I have no idea how I’d return it. Also, it won’t be here till next week according to Amazon but since I live in New York it might come earlier than usual like everything else I order directly from Amazon.
While playing Sleeping Dogs I realized that a bunch of the console ported games I have for PC have crappy controls. Sure, I use my PS3 controller but that is also quite frustrating because of the shoulder buttons plus the constant charging from the PC messes up the battery(this has already happened to one of my previous controllers unfortunately). I couldn’t find a layout to my liking(360 style triggers and dpad and left stick placed where they are on the PS3 controller). I did want to get some fancy looking Razer controller but it was like 80 dollars and I’m not about to spend that much on a god damn control, honestly who has money like that for just ONE control? so I’ll just have to settle with the first party wired control, the good news is that it’s only 30 bucks on Newegg so that’s pretty sweet. I’ll order it tomorrow and hopefully it gets here by Friday or Saturday so I can use it during the weekend.
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 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!!!
