Assassins Creed 2 Reveiw

November 24, 2009 Leave a comment

Assassins Creed 2 contains some great ideas and is an excellent addition to the franchise. It feels more expansive and just overall larger than it’s predecessor. Most of all, the Storytelling is some of the most powerful I have seen in a game. Sure you see it coming from a mile away but the illusion of the likability of all the characters makes their story to powerful to end. Visually this game is superb, it captures all the aesthetic parts of italy from florence to Venice with such ar’e moire. The italian language that people keep speaking is frustrating if you do not put the subtitles on but for me it made the game all that much more believable. The Game has been expanded huge on the collectable part and everything feels like the Ocarina of Time…which isn’t a bad thing. It’s just epic. This is my game of the year, and I love it.

Bottom Line: Buy It!

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Reveiw

November 12, 2009 Leave a comment

Oh my god…Was this awesome. Modern Warfare 2 is one game I stood in line for at midnight, I was 6th in line and I got my free poster. I rushed home as quickly as I could popped it in got my mountain dew and played through the first three single player levels.  I then fell asleep for about 2 hrs and continued playing until noon when I beat single player. After that I worked on the multiplayer portion reaching rank 22 before finnaly my controllers died. I was enthralled.

Single player is awesome over the top experience with all kinds of sections that make the game you really need to experience go out and buy the game if you haven’t already.

Multiplayer is too new to really make a judgement but everything including the kitchen sink has been thrown in. I love it i’m now rank 26 and still everything feels new. I haven’t even touched most of the guns i’ve unlocked. Enough about that you want a reveiw so here it is.

Single player is full of scripted events filled with action packed context sensitive sequences. It involves you as a soldier in a time of crisis. World War 3…suddenly after an assault on an airport with a downed american soldier the russians are crying for blood. Makarov the prophet behind Zackayev has put together the events that start world war 3. And so goes journey through virginia and burger town all the way east to our nations capitol Washington D.C. however, Makarov doesn’t like that your in Washington and decides to nuke it. So now everythings been E.M.P.’ed and no electronics or communications work…except for in one area. The White House.

Meanwhile an old friend is found in some russian gulag and he goes batshit crazy on a revenge quest that results in one of the most awesome endings to a video game ever…albeit a tad far fetched.

*Update, I just played through the co-op campaign a bit…and let me say it’s awesome they didn’t even have to throw this in…it’s a whole ‘nother game with enough content to keep me busy for a month. It revolves around completing special challanges alone or with a friend…such as hold off a wave of enemy assaults…and no 2 are alike. Plus there are seperate maps in these that are not seen anywhere else.

Multiplayer…

Its fucking call of duty…go play it.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is MY game of the year. Simply because it’s awesome…I got my bang for my buck…A game that I can spend 40Hrs on and not finish everything. Plus…Cpt Price.

The Beatles Rock Band Game Reveiw

November 4, 2009 Leave a comment

I will say it now, I freaking love The Beatles. I love there music and I love their lore and history. I like Rock Band The Beatles, but what was a great effort at a band tribute and that is what this feels like,  Falls a bit short to a hardcore beatles fans. The one thing I would have liked would be the actual story of the band…sure you get cool cartoons but they don’t explain anything. There just there before the next chapter or venue. Also to me, Harmonix’s song choices could have been better. Although DLC will fix this I really expected more songs and…for gods sake…

  • Elenor Rigby
  • All you Need is love
  • Maxwell’s Silver Hammer

They should be free DLC or dammit be on the disk. What I wanted was a true to life story of the bands history, which wasn’t always that colorful bright picture the game paints it out to be. Sure the atmosphere and dark elements of the music towards the rooftop concert bring it out…but it’s far too subtle. What I got was awesome Beatles music, trippy “Inspired” music videos called “dreamscapes” and I also got to feel like John Lennon, but that has nothing to do with the fact that while playing this game I put on a shirt and tie a small brit style jacket, slicked my hair back and put on my Lennon Shades. Oh yeah, I also was playing Come Together with a plastic Ukeleyle

It’s a short game for 60$ but I invested the money as a fan and am very happy with it.

Today I completely finished the Saludio Hills area and the Outside of the Vault. We hope the new vault will “Spread” out dungeons a little bit.

The entrance to the Vault

The new Vault Exterior

Next I am going to mapping the inside of the Vault and adjusting loot. Below are some pics to help get an Idea of the new area. I really can’t wait to redo this dungeon, the last version was too short and done too quick. After finishing the dungeon all the games quests are going to be removed and redone.

Saludio Hills Fully Developed

Saludio Hills finished!

Stay tuned for more info and maybe even a video with the new areas and the new dungeon guides.

South Park Reveiw – Whale Whores

October 30, 2009 Leave a comment

The new South Park episode last night was one of the funniest I have seen in recent times. The episode, Whale Whores which you can watch here. Is about the Japanese and a sudden hate for dolphins and  whales. It sparks some of the funniest cameos which mostly because I’ve been watching Deadliest Catch and those other big boat shows lately. The cameos include:

  • Deadliest Catch
  • Lady Gaga
  • Whale Wars

The episode centers around Stan taking up pirating to stop the Japanese from killing whales and dolphins. However when he joins the crew of the show Whale Wars, he finds that their methods aren’t quite as “Effective”. There’s one hilarious part right before Stan goes off to join the crew when Cartman, Kyle, and Kenny are all sitting around playing Rock Band and Cartman is singing Lady Gaga’s song, Poker Face. As he wails into the background while Stan pleads his friends to help him fight the Japanese and become pirates…Cartman then turns the song around at Stan.

As Stan joins the Crew, he notices that their methods of pirating are to throw stinking butter, while the Japanese have machine guns and spears. He pulls out a flare gun and starts World War 3. After a while of pirating Cartman and Kenny decide they want to be on tv and start helping Stan against the Japanese. Afterwords and promptly their boat blows up and they are captured by the Japanese and taken into a prison. A Japanese official then explains a dark secret about the bombing on Hiroshima which explains their hatred for whales and dolphins.

Stan then tells them the truth and the Japanese redirect their hatred and start killing thousands of cows and chickens just like normal Americans.

To sum it all up South Park is targeting

  • PETA
  • Big Boat Shows
  • Lady Gaga
  • World War 2
  • Sea World

In one of the most hilariously and entertainingly funny satires.  Trey Parker and Matt Stone truly are the comedic satirists of the 21st century. They are Mark Twain’s in a very controversial and philosophical sense.
