Brief Update - Bulletpoints!

  • I got Bionic Commando and I think it is great. I don't know where these 5/10, 6/10 reviews are coming from, the game is a lot of fun. The muliplayer bites though to be honest, sorry guys.
  • I got The Chronicles of Riddick Assault on Dark Athena about a month ago and it was a great buy. Escape from Butcher Bay is still a mostly awesome experience and Dark Athena is still good enough to make it worth a purchase. I should really get around to wrap up Dark Athena, I just haven't played it in ages.
  • Another game that I have bought was Clive Barker's Jericho for the epic price of £2.50 and while it was worth that much, I wouldn't play much more for it. The game is ok at first but the weapons are so weak and the game is extremely repetitive and simply boring in all honesty. I will probably slog through it some day but it is one of the worst shooters out there for the 360.
  • I also got the Sega Megadrive Ultimate Collection and this was an impulse buy but I grew up playing with the Sega Megadrive back in the day so this was a good purchase. Over 40 games for £25 is a good deal. A lot of the games in this pack are still a lot of fun to play like the Streets of Rage games and the Sonic series but some of the games that I thought were great back in the day like Golden Axe suck balls now :P Still, this package has given me the chance to play many games that I never got around ot trying and it's great overall.
  • I also bought Kane & Lynch: Dead Men again for the 360 for a mere £5 and I still think that game is still pretty good, flawed but the campaign has many exciting moments and the multiplayer is still a lot of fun.

Until next time, see you guys but do you think I should buy Bionic Commando Rearmed if I have never played the original? Would I still like it or should I just skip it? I am just wondering :) Keep it easy.

I'm not a fan of Bionic Commando Rearmed, but I'd give the demo a shot if you have a chance.  It's well liked.

And I've been thinking about picking up that Sonic collection.  It looks like a great deal for the price, and I'd like a chance to play some of the RPG's included.

Bionic Commando has gotten up and down reviews. reviews, so I'm not pulling for that.

II wasn't really fan of Bionic Commando: Rearmed since I didn't like the fact you couldn't shoot diagonally while enemies can amongst other things.  I know a few other people are enjoying the BC game but I think it will be pretty bland but will probably check it out once it hits the £15-£20 mark.

Oh and the Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Collection is great and a easy 1000 points. :P  Play Ristar and love it or suffer my displeasure.

Yeah I am likely to check Rearmed out since its only 400 points this week and I do like Ristar a lot, it's very underrated and should be better known :)
