All About Wej_accept_it
It's been a while since I wrote anything in this little blog. Mainly becuase I've been busying doing other things (awesome martial arts demo and cat empire concert) and gaming has taken a back seat in my life. However I just went out and got copies of two games I've been wanting to play for ages, Kill-Switch and DBZ: Budokai 3, both for PS2.
I'd like to dedicate this whole entry pretty much entirely to B3. Sure K-S rocks in its own way, it's just that I've been completely obessed with B3. I'm a huge fan of DBZ, I'll say that right now and I'll say that proudly. Its a great show in its own right, granted a lot of the aspects of the show could be better but the good parts of the show so much out-wiegh the bad that its easy to enjoy watching it. I love the high-octane, over the top martial arts action of the show. This leads to the reason as to way so many DBZ games have been crap over the years, they're just fighting games with DBZ themes, what B3 does (and does brilliantly) is make a geniune DBZ fighting game. If it was a cool part of the show then chances are, its included in this game. Beam wars when two fighters launch massive energy blasts at each other? Check! Use super speed to leap around the arena and knock your opponent around senseless in the process? Check! Throw out some ultimate final moves that are just like those in the show? Check! Yes it's all here in B3 and the funny thing is, you can't actually understand it until you actaully play the game...
When I first got the game I jumped right into the action of it. Within minutes I was lost as my charecter got beaten by the computer on easy. I stared dumbstruck at the screen as somehow my opponent hurled me back and forth, unleashed a massive energy wave then moved so fast I couldn't even follow his movements. Make no mistake this game has a very deep and original fighting system, I don't care if you've mastered Soul Calibre, Tekken and Virtua Fighter, the fact is this game does things differently, thankfully it does everything well to perfectly re-create all the action of the show. I'll post my own review of it soon when I've spent more time player. And speaking of reviews, many people are saying that DBZ:BT2 is even BETTER then B3, but for some reason gamespot is still yet to post a review of it. What the hell is going on gamespot? I value your opinon on games, why have you not reviewed a game that has been out for several weeks now!
Finally, I'd like to say that K-S is a great game in certain ways. Technically speaking, it's just a mediocre third-person action but this game does something. It uses a unique gameplay style of cover. In this game, you must use the environment to survive, you can put you back up to walls and fire around corners or fire fire blind if need be. It's hard to describe but its similar to a system being seen in Gears of War, the fact is, K-S rocks becuase it shows a developer taking a chance and doing something original and cool with an overused genre in gaming! Three Cheers for Kill-Switch!
I've just gone out and brought a new gaming console!
No its, not an X360, its a GameCube. They're so cheap now and the lure of finally playing Metroid Prime is simply too much to resist.
Wow! How damn good is MP? I can't believe that none of my friends have played this, its so good. I find myself comparing the game to Halo:CE and Halo 2 a lot. Graphically it outshines H:CE in every aspect and comes damn close to H2. The gameplay is smooth, intense, intriguing and immersive. In fact I'm strongly reminded of Half Life, its the same type of design that draws a player in but its even better here. There's no loading, you can examine and scane almost everything in sight, there's an great mirror effect where you'll see Samus' face after standing near a large explosion, hell this game has seemingly everything.
I can wait to play MP2: Echoes, and I am seriously considering buying a Nintendo Wii when they come out. I'm buying a PS3, that is definete but the Wii is so tempting now. I've downloaded a 113MB video of MP3 and it looks great. Graphically, I've seen a lot better, but the game seems to have a stronger focus on action (which is great in my opinion) and the way it controls! By god you can't understand how damn amazing the Wii Controller is until you see it action. This baby is gonna change the way people play FPS games on consoles. It does the impossible, it is actually a more effective control mechanism then the "mouse and keyboard combo" on PCs. Seriously, thats how good the set up is. Console owners are actually going to have a control methond for FPS that outshines the PC, its unheard of. But to be more accurate, Wii gamers will have it, those going with X360 and PS3 will be stuck with that inferiour two control stick configuration, bah I'll take the Wii anyday over that.
This in turn leads to the big question, could MP3 actually beat Halo 3? It seems imossible to believe but there's a great chance that Nintendo will have the best FPS shooter in the next-gen console wars. Granted, don't count Sony out just yet, if they can come through with KillZone 2 then things are going to get really interesting. The fact is, anyone of these games is going to amazing, outdoing all FPS shooters we've seen recently.
I can't wait!!!
I have spent the past few weeks getting heavily into Morrowind. This is basically becasue I have been without a good RPG for a long time and this one seemed like a good choice.
WHOA!!!! How friggen big is this game!??? I seriously counld't believe the size and detail of the game world and how every NPC has a unique name and all the weapons and I think my head will explode from it all. But what gets me is that the game really isn;t that much fun. It draws me in for hours at a time but its not likemy heart rate is pounding or I'm caught up in the story or anything. This game is addictive, there is really no other word for it. I don't get a lot of enjoyment out of the game but it is satisfactory. I dont dislike playing the game but it could be a lot better. But I don;t think I could stop playing, this game has me hooked completely. I can;t wait to get my hands on Oblivion now.
