RelentlessKnight: Best of 2010
This and Red Dead Redemption is indeed one of the best games of 2010. But the reason why Red Dead isn't even close to this game is because of it being something that touched me with epicness... I mean, just look at when Shepard and his crew is going through the "Suicide Mission" and how it felt to me like a blockbluster movie.. it just lives and breathes like one too. Aside from that since the first ME, this one improved "massive" improvements to the shootings and the flaws that the first game has. Also there's some small tidbits like how much lore put into the Mass Effect universe that pays alot of attention to detail. Furthermore, the story and the characters as well as the voices is excellent and love every moment of a Grunt and Garrus unwillingness of talking to me when I go to him. Tons and tons of things I could say about how awesome this game but nevertheless this is indeed one top game of 2010.
The only thing going about this game is the fucking multiplayer and like the previous Starcraft, it never changes. But there's a whole entire game if you not play it as to clicking your mouse, rapid speed. The one thing I love about this game since the beta is the number and numbers of custom games being released and boy like those two examples shown in BlizzCon, the custom maps are rather impressive... for example; someone decided to create a Metal Slug game and did a friggen side-shooter alongside with the music and stuff from METAL SLUG.. also there's a upcoming project of making a Final Fantasy game and actually making it feel like FF. These custom maps are the main reason why I love the Starcraft community rather than the Warcraft because in the first Starcraft, someone decided to make a custom campaign in Starcraft complete with created-FMV sequences that you see in the main game. I just love it and hope that there's plenty of more awesome custom maps incoming in the future. Anyways, with the single-player portion of this game - all I could say it's like a Indigo Prophecy complex where the first/second half of the game is excellent while the final half is awful. That's what the story all about.. at first it's all Starcraft-like with Jimmies and Hyperion but then they decided to curl it into some sort of a movie with drama and not being all Starcraft-like. I just hated it and the behind the scenes commentating about the cutscenes in this game is just a sell-out talking about how they wanted to be like the Black Lagoon in the end... WTF blizzard. This rant isn't why I put it number two but anything I said about this game with the custom maps and the singleplayer being addictive as hell is that reason why.
Before this game I loved Persona 4 to death because of the Endurance Run and such but as I played this game and fully read the non-voiced scenes in the game in the second playthrough, I started to like the game more especially the Hot Springs and the Operational Babe Hunt part but the only thing unlike P4 is that they often transition to the depressing and moody scenes after like Shinjuro dying and Ikuskuti being the real culprit.. I mean why do you have to be so much of a downer P3P? I loved it especially in January where everyone decided to turn all emo on me and I happen to tell them to shut up and defeat Nyx. It's these moments that I hated P3P but the gameplay doesn't hinder much of the sad scenes and is addicting as hell and also the social links are fun as well. I also love the fact that there's alot of playability after you beat this game, since there are two genders you pick at the starting and two separate things you do with the playthrough like the social links with change from a different character to events where you go to an different perspective. These things is why I love this game and it's also a good handheld game to play sacrificing the fully cinematic cutscenes that looks freakly from anime standpoint (everyone looks like some ugly giant in the cutscenes) and being just all text with a different background being changed. This game is considered one of the best handheld of this year and the only one that I liked.
Imagine Portal, Half-life, and Bioshock mixed into a game.. this is the result and a fun one as well. Singularity mixes with these games adding these gameplay elements with other games and makes it exciting and enjoyable, creating traps and using your "juice" to kill the creatures. Also like Bioshock, you could spend your points upgrading your weapons and improving your character making the game more exciting in the gameplay standpoint complex. The storyline is about the Americans finding some anomaly in some cold deserted island with a facility and once you go inside you get teleported to the past and saved some scientist but that scientist was the real culprit and the whole game is undoing the past so that the future will not be rid of freaks and Commies taking over the world with them.
Like Fallout New Vegas, this game doesn't really improve much of the things but only the save system. But in a good way which adds a workbench, better AI following and maybe less challenging than the first game. It's these things that I forget how less the game improved and just wanted to kill more zambies and psychopaths with the knives' glove, emp amplifier and tons of things found of the Strip while cross-dressing Chuck to death... a creepy fantasy I know but it could your experience of doing whatever the fuck you want to humiliate Chuck and throw vibrators at zombies.... It's also a great Halloween game too!
The previous Fallout like I said countless of times is the better game than this is and less technical issues. This game is littered with of them and it's a shame that I love to hate this game so much by beating the game four times and counting. It just makes me want to return to Fallout 3 again and play with the Rocket-It Launcher rather than custom mods to your lame-ass sniper rifle or 10mm submachine gun. However having companion quests, the performance at the Aces Theatre, Tops Casino and doing small things like going to Vault 11 is the moments that I felt liking this game without the dismissal of bugs. And I kinda liked the Wild Wasteland Trait and the developers trying to put many Monty Python jokes as much as they can.. though the Hell's Grannies reference redeemed it for me.
Being cliche as it is as a trend of not-playing these games before.. I would say Bejeweled 3 is an addicting, fast-pace, thrilling puzzle game that satisfies hours and hours of desktop/iPhone boredom and like any PopCap Games, it's completely like that and the reason why it's perfect for casual audiences alike.
I was skeptical about this game, being as that Treyarch developed it and World at War being alright but not a great experience. But when playing the game, it's actually quite good with not being another Modern Warfare and made it with a goofy storyline behind it that it makes it thrilling to play. Though having some missions being in Vietnam and playing it all like Apocalyse Now doesn't justify how those missions are great and Im just sicked of them. The zombie mode with the presidents/dictator/secretary doesn't justify it also and decided to curl a story within it and it's still the same shit. The redeeming factor to these two things is the computer console feature where you could see more intel from mails to some behind the scenes stuff. And the fact that you could play Gorg and Black Ops Arcade, a top-down shooter the is like Zombie Mode but top-down. The multiplayer is the highlight of this game and nevertheless I didn't play it but I heard many great things about it like Gungame and such.
I just don't know why I suddenly think this game is boring - when I played my first playthrough, I was glued to the storyline and characters like there's no tomorrow but as I decided to play the game again, it's the feeling why I cannot stand old Western movies as well, they have a nice setting and story but it's just too slow paced that I cannot go through it a second time... I mean trying to get to Armadillo is like a chore to me and the music isn't helping one bit while traveling there. Like a Rockstar game, the storyline and wonderful characters as well as the side things you get to do is attached together to make it more fun to continue on playing but like I said, i cannot stand it anymore.
Like a Halo game its awesome and playing it on Heroic was my last regret..
