A Simple Blog

i feel like posting my thoughts in bullet points so here:

Dead or Alive 5

  • surprise, surprise. i'm excited for dead or alive 5
  • Mila looks like one of the best additions to DOA5. she looks like the most unique character in the series to date in terms of play style
  • yo, that train stage.
  • the bikini thing still disappoints me to an extent, but i'll deal, i guess.
  • obligatory boob comment, because apparently giant bomb still gets a kick out of that

Sleeping Dogs

  • for a game that used to be called True Crime, it sure kicks ass
  • speaking of kicking ass, the fighting in this game.. um, kicks ass
  • the shooting feels kinda loose but the way that guns sound and feel are great
  • the driving is pretty awesome too. running people over is fun
  • the events right before the endgame made me sad
  • i threw some lady into a trunk and drove the car into the ocean because she yelled at me. A++++ game

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

  • counter strike is still as fun and thrilling as ever.
  • it works surprisingly well on the xbox with a controller. everything feels and plays great.
  • it's lame that we don't have custom maps, but for 15$ on a console, i'm not complaining
  • this game is an absolute blast with friends, and the crazy people on xbox live make it even better

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge

  • i hate Ninja Gaiden 3
  • i hate pretty much everything involving Ninja Gaiden 3
  • with that said, unless they're revamping the gameplay, story and everything surrounding those two things, i don't have much interest in TN rereleasing that game with more stuff.
  • i know, story is usually throwaway in Ninja Gaiden games but when the developers themselves say that it's going to be a big focus, and it negatively affects the gameplay then they need to work on the story.
  • they're probably not going to do that, though.
  • some of the additions, like new weapons and upgrades look pretty cool but it doesn't make a difference unless the game plays better.
  • so, apart from Ayane being playable again (even at that, she looks like she was ripped directly out of Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2), i have no real interest in this game. doesn't help that it's on the fucking Wii U.
  • if i end up getting a Wii U, then i'll totally give it a shot.
  • i'm saying all of this without reading that much about what the developers have to say, apart from Hayashi talking about burgers or something
  • fuck, i'm going to play it aren't i?
  • please be good. pleasepleaseplease.

Assassin's Creed

  • finished the first assassination, already got bored
  • everything surrounding the game is cool as hell though
  • i'm probably never going to play this game again

Skyrim

  • i'm never going to finish this game

Grand Theft Auto IV

  • by far one of my favorite games this generation, and that's without even acknowledging the story
  • the online is still absolutely amazing with friends
  • speaking of the story, that was pretty cool too
  • hey

The Walking Dead

  • the walking dead is amazing, and everybody should go play it
  • the story, characters and atmosphere are all absolutely outstanding, and is one of the best experiences of the year so far.
  • seriously. if you haven't played it, go play the walking dead or go jump off a cliff.

Dead or Alive Xtreme 2

  • this is one of the worst games that i have ever played in my entire life
  • seriously. i can't believe how mediocre this game is
  • it makes me want to punch babies
  • fuck you, Itagaki

Playstation Vita

  • it was cool for a month or so but now i never play it
  • it has cool games, but i feel no incentive to ever boot it up
  • i should probably get past the first mission in Gravity Rush

Macbook Pro

  • i got a fancy new macbook for school
  • relax. i'm taking a video class and they use macs so i figured it would be ideal
  • as it turns out, it is totally ideal. i love carrying this thing around, or at least until i get robbed
  • thanks everybody on giant bomb for recommending me computers.

College

  • i don't talk about my personal life too often when i blog
  • though just wanted to say that it's cool and badminton class is dope because i get to hit things around with a bunch of asian girls

Other things

  • i'm going to a lil b concert on the 21st for some reason
  • i can't believe how much gangnam style is blowing up. not only did it dethrone gee as the most viewed kpop video but it's about to beat it by 100 million views
  • YEAH BITCH MAGNETS

thanks for reading.

I still think DOA5 is missing a great, great stamp of the series...

Where is Aerosmith!?

Jokes asides it's one of my most anticipated games of the year hopefully they will have one more surprise in the game.

Posted by Bigandtasty

lol at the Skyrim entry

DOA5 doesn't need Aerosmith; it needs Kid Rock. No one is more authentic than Kid Rock.

Posted by Video_Game_King

Badminton class? In college?

Posted by onimonkii

i heard rumors this blog wasn't actually that simple

Posted by AjayRaz

@AngelN7: @Bigandtasty: no one is more authentic than Aerosmith. seriously. it's become a staple of the series for the duration of its exclusivity on the Xbox. i guess not anymore since the Piss Station 3 had to ruin it. ah well. i guess Aerosmith left with Itagaki.

let us remember with one of the couple Aerosmith DOA opening intros:

@Video_Game_King: yep. it's kinda weird but hey, i ain't complaining. badminton is dope as hell

@onimonkii: i am here to squash those rumors because our company does not condone false advertising. this is the simplest blog that we have to offer

I'd buy Dead or Alive 5, but I've been wanting a phone upgrade for some time now! D:

Posted by Hailinel

I have DOA5 on preorder. It looks awesome. Also, I will play Razaor's Edge and see how it is. I enjoyed my time with the PAX demo to give it a shot when it comes out.

And I still need to play Sleeping Dogs.

Posted by ImmortalSaiyan

Mila is looking awesome so far. I love her jeans and plaid over-shirt outfit. One of the best in the game I think. She looks designed to be tough looking over attractive. The bikinis are annoying. I think the outfits in DOA5 are looking great, and the bikini's mildly blemish that. For being bikini's they are as stylish as you can get but i'd rather not have any. It'll be upsetting if they are used often online.

DOAX2 is total garbage. I was assuming I would get something out of it liking the characters. How wrong I was. That game has one of the biggest clashes of tone I've ever seen. I can't stand playing it long.

Posted by AjayRaz

@Hailinel: what system are you rollin' with? if you're on 360 and you got gold, then we should play for sure.

oh, and good luck with Razor's Edge. did you ever play Ninja Gaiden 3?

@ImmortalSaiyan: mila's tomboy look is great. i totally dig her look and how she plays, too from the gameplay. i wonder how that ground n' pound is going to work out in the game. as for the bikinis, at least they're nice ones. kind of softens the hit from the bikini announcement, but it suddenly looks tame compared to the 100+ bikini bundle set in Tekken Tag 2. except they have male swimwear, which would be cool if we had that too.

oh, and DOAX2 is bad. so bad. how the hell did they mess that one up? it blows my mind how they could mess up a game with ninjas, assassins and wrestlers on a beach resort in bikinis who all want to kill each other.

Posted by Hailinel

@AjayRaz: I'm actually getting DOA5 on PS3.

And I didn't play Ninja Gaiden 3, actually. I had heard about Razor's Edge and how it was supposed to contain content that wasn't in the standard version before NG3 came out. Of course, I didn't understand how drastic the difference would actually be a the time, but I felt that if I was going to play the game, I might as well wait for the more fully featured version.

You're going to a Lil B concert? You would.

@Metal_Gear_Sunny: hell yeah i would
