A Week of Gaming - 3-6-12

No Caption Provided

This week, I've been thinking about the weekly format of the blog. While it worked pretty well when I was playing shorter games, it doesn't seem to make a lot of sense for RPGs. There's only so much I can say about a game, so it becomes a struggle when I play a game for several weeks. As a result, I've decided to stop the weekly blogs in favour of more of a 'start/complete a game' blog format. That means I can post a blog whenever I need to. It could even happen during the week, rather than the weekend. As you might expect, I'll be changing to the name of the blog to something more suitable. Not quite sure what yet, but I'm sure I'll work something out...

At any rate, I have no plans to quit writing blogs. I have a lot of fun writing them and it's nice being able to share what I think about certain games. The new format doesn't mean I'll be tackling RPGs forever, either. In fact, I'm tempted to tackle Metroid Prime after Wild Arms 3. Bit limited with how I can mix things up at the moment, but I can try.

Hope everyone understands the change and I'll continue to do my best when typing out my blogs. :D

Yep, it's that time of the year where we stayed glued to our monitors in the hope of some crazy news from the Electronic Entertainment Expo. This year looks as though it will be a fairly tame one, but I don't know if we'll be thinking that once everything has been revealed. I'm sure there'll be some nice surprises here and there.

Even though I'm not the biggest Nintendo fan (to be clear, I don't hate them), I'm looking forward to their conference the most. I'm curious to see what they'll bring to the table. For me, they'll need to show that the Wii U will have the same games that the other two will. If they're going to rely on their first party stuff again, I'm not interested. I also don't see that going well for them. They've already said that Darksiders II will be a Wii U game, but they'll need more games along that line.

For fun, here is the E3 Bingo chart I filled out...

My predictions are a mixture of 'Yeah, that could happen...' and 'that probably won't happen, but what the hell...'. I struggled with the M$ conference, if I'm honest, but I don't think I did much better with Sony's. However, I'm fairly sure my dubstep prediction will come true...

The Vestige - Final Fantasy XII

I didn't get particularly far with Final Fantasy XIII (should get back to it one day), but I was pretty impressed with the music. This track in particular is my favourite out of the ones I heard. I think it has good use of voices. It sounds very ominous and full of gravity.

Chinese - Timesplitters

I used to play a lot split-screen Timesplitters 2 with one of my brothers. One of the best maps to play on was the Chinese stage. As a result, I heard a lot of this track...which isn't a bad thing.

Late Goodbye - Max Payne 2

For me, this was a great song to end Max Payne 2 with. It fits the theme of the game perfectly. Poets of the Fall also appeared in another Remedy game (Alan Wake), so we may hear more from them in a future release.

That's all for this blog. The next blog will likely appear when I complete Wild Arms 3 (which is still a while away), but I may do an E3 blog if enough stuff that interests me occurs. Thanks for reading.
