The chaos and fun of Saints Row is fully intact in the underworld, but a new setting can only go so far.
Dimensions recaptures enough of Geometry Wars' thrills to stand as the best new dual-joystick shooter in quite a while.
The little mushroom man finally gets his name on the marquee, and the result is a charming, unique, and puzzle-heavy adventure.
@dg_nick: I would think "Jetlag and E3"
Im just going to throw something at the DmC thing, it isn't big. My personal dislike for the game isn't with gameplay, its not too bad and just needs polish to be as slick as DMC is normally. We have to give NT some respect for trying it. Respect is the problem though. The lack of respect NT has for the DMC name is very apparent in the games story and tends to tread a line of "This isn't working" to "This is insulting". I dislike the fact there is so much swearing. This is something so minor but...Dante doesn't swear! Seriously. In all the DMC games, there is no swearing! Is it hard to make something dark and edgy and keep the foul mouth down? That annoyed me the most.
Anyway, moving on. Ive been on a "Warrior Binge" :) Samurai Warrior 3, Sengoku Basara 3 and Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper are currently my drugs. How much warfair can i take i guess. I'm rather shocked at how well SB3 plays on the Wii. The controls are PERFECT with the nunchuck/mote layout. Unlike SW3, which uses down on the D-pad for heavy attacks. My fingers hurt :(.
Other then that, my health being worse but that is why im living out here. No where else can deal with this stuff. It's not been so bad. :) Gaming has kept me going. It's kinda nice to know a simple passtime has done me so much good in just keeping me motivated to carry on with things. ^_^ I should try and get a video capture one day, maybe streaming would be nice.
Not gonna lie, admitting something about yourself in a forum is strange. XD
I am really scared. I kinda want to post a blog about something i care about. Music and sound. I've always found the music in games the biggest part of things but more then games themselves, music is super subjective. I've been beaten down on forums for being just a girl who players games, not someone who understands it enough. Considering its my job to sound engineer and edit for people and i have a massive video game music collection, i kinda think i do have a bit of a voice for this. I just feel scared to post it here. :( Maybe im paranoid. Says a lot when even this post isn't going up on the forum.
I kinda wish i sent a email in once but im always worried what id say would be stupid :)
One day. Gaming will look at nintendo and go "fuck, we REALLY gave them too much credit". They don't do anything but create hardware and leave it to die. How do you do that?!
In a attempt to get my steam game pile down to size now i have a nice new PC (I went from a AMD X3 (?) 6000 3.00 dual core to a I5 3.30 quad! :D), i made a attempt to get and install a few games. This is just a short run down but yea, i kinda laugh at how far behind i am.
LA Noire (PC)
So i have this on the PS3 too with all my DLC. I tend to buy games twice, once for PC and once for consoles because i like choice. After playing with the files some (including a wonderful round of -STR to single thread the damn game), it now runs at a BLAZING 30 FPS, all capped up and no where to go. I've never felt frustrated at capped games but this is kinda bad. That wonderful feeling that you get knowing that as a PC gamer, your only limited by your hardware which is so ahead of consoles now that it feels like people make bad ports now JUST to piss us off. Oh well. Either way, i REALLY like this game. I'm someone who believes that a game can be like a book. You settle in, snuggle into a blanket with a coffee and just play. Phoenix Wright was like that. I sat and just enjoyed it in such a way that made me feel so warm and fuzzy. This game does it but i feel the action gets in the way far too much. It's the curse of the name "Rockstar" being attached to it. I feel that if this was done with Capcom, they would let it be actionless and let the games story speak more. Yes, i honestly gave credit to Capcom. The gunplay feels really loose too without some kind of aim-assist. Im not used to using a pad in games and the keyboard controls in this game are AWFUL so i had to kinda learn to use it again. Not something i enjoyed, i might add but im trying to learn. Either way, i am really enjoying this. Something im going to sink some hours to.
Sleeping Dogs (PC)
High Res Texture Pack - Installed. Check. All other DLC? - Installed. Check. Game set to be about medium-high? - Check.
God, i love this game. Let me pre-face this by saying that i think True Crimes is a better game series then GTA. Why? Because of the same reason i own Just Cause 2. I want my open world to be open and filled with as much "breaking of the rules" as possible. I don't mean crime, i mean the ability for me to climb a building, throw myself off it and land on a car, surf it a little for flipping off it and shooting someone. I don't care if i die, i want it to be the most fun ive had in a day and then to do it again tomorrow. The reason open world games work so well is because you can have your own kind of fun. It's lego for the soul and that is really what a game is meant to be. Enjoyable, freestyle and awesome. Sleeping Dogs also kinda hits a spot i love of being very daft. When a game has me keep a rival gangs BUS ROUTE out of business just by beeping my horn at other bus drivers and beating up people at bus-stops, i kinda feel that its a mission well spent. I got that feeling with Saint's Row too, where the missions serve no other reason but to enjoy myself in a stupid moment of "seriousness". I think the combat wins me over the most though. It's slasher level of violence but it feels so good when you get that flow going and nothing comes close to you. I will say though. DLC ruins it a lot. It makes you super high level from the get go and ive TOTALLY filled my face bar from the start. It's kinda insane.
I don't need to say much to this, other then i play this game like a Rouge like, ironman mode and not giving a crap if i finish it. I don't think il ever finish this game. I am happy that way. :D
......high chaos is hard. O_O
And...im going to pick this up on ebay. God, this looks fun as heck. heh. Also, Sid being awesome as always. :)
I can't wait for Dishonored though from what ive played, i can kinda see it might have problems for some. I wonder how it will do next week. :)
Use your keyboard!
