Over the past few weeks, this site has not been updated, and for that we apologize, but we have all been with our families for the holidays, showing them some love. I promise we haven't forgotten about you guys and we are still working even though we haven't posted new content. I did finally get a PS3 over break, and have been playing Arkham City and started Infamous: Festival of Blood last night. I am going to start getting games from Eh-Rok so that I can review them and get them posted as well, so that all of you have more reviews to read through. We appreciate your patience, and as soon as I finish it, my review of Festival Of Blood will be up. Until then, I hope you guys enjoyed your holidays, and got lots of games! Keep up the gaming, and more importantly, support the industry, buy your games, don't pirate them!
A couple of releases this week I am really amped for. Call Of Duty: Rezzurection DLC, and Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Rezzurection is alledgedly going to be the last of the DLC for the Black Ops game from the COD franchise. Who knows with them, but this DLC will surely amaze as the others have before. Of course, Eh-Rok is in Hawaii on his honeymoon, and I don't have a 360, but when he comes home, I am pretty sure he is going to buy it, and we are hoping to play this weekend, and I will let you all know how it is. This is an all zombie map pack, with one of them being on the moon, which will surely be pretty badass in itself. Sad to see the DLC for this game come to an end, however, Modern Warfare 3 is on its way, so we won't have to wait much longer for new Call Of Duty to play!!! Deus Ex: Human Revolution came out on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC this week as well, and is highly anticipated. I believe Eh-Rok is getting this one as well, so watch out for his blog on it if he is, I know he like Deus Ex. From the Screenshots and videos I have seen from this game, I am extremely jealous that I can't play it, although, I might get it on PC. As you all know, I have had Eh-Rok's PS3 this week while he was gone, so I played a lot of Killzone 2, Infamous, Infamous 2, God Of War III, and Assasin's Creed, so watch for an updated blog from me.
What I am Playing
For now, I am not going to put anything here, I will do an updated blog this weekend for what I am playing, because I am hoping to buy a PSP this week. Right now though, I have Eh-Rok's PS3, loving it! Killzone 2 is an amazing shooter, I really wanna try Killzone 3 after the demo of it I played, it appears to be a very solid franchise from what I have played. I made it through most of Infamous, and even though I am not big on superhero games, this game amazed me! You knew you were a superhero per say, although you could be a bad guy (I never did), but at the same time, the amount of game play it had and the different things you did on your missions and side missions made it feel like an RPG in a way, a shooter, and a superhero, all in one! I loved the start of Infamous 2 as well, and I hope someday I can finish playing it (hoping I get a PS3 someday). God Of War III was what I expected it to be and more. Tyical Krados ripping apart baddies, and great gameplay with even greater of a storyline from the other 2 God Of War games. Assasin's Creed was odd to me, simply though because I haven't played the other games in that franchise, so I was really confused as to what to do and what was going on. All in all it has been a fun week with his PS3, and I am sad to give it back to him, but hopefully I get that PS3 this week to start reviewing games on that. Wish me Luck!!!
Have a great week everyone, and keep on gaming!!
Well, another week is upon us, and sadly, it appears I did not win that PS3 I was trying so hard to get. There is still a slim hope alive that I could win it, but time will tell, and at this point, I doubt I will get it, but luckily there is a new contest for a 360!! So lets go for that one! Plus I am trying to still find one for cheap, if anyone knows how I can get one for cheap, please let me know, so I can start having more to add to my gaming blog!
There were releases that I was looking forward to this week. The first one was the DLC for Fall Out New Vegas: Old World Blues. This is the 3rd DLC for New Vegas, and it is designed to reveal how the monsters came to occupy the area. This was a highly anticipated DLC, and from what Eh-Rok has told me, Fallout has always had really good DLC, so this one is sure to still not disappoint. Like I said in my opening, I don't think I have won that PS3, but hopefully I will get my hands on one somehow. The newest contest is for an Xbox 360, so wish me luck there! The next release was Call of Juarez: The Cartel. The promos for this game make it look amazingly fun to me, however, once I was reading up on it, it sounds like the gameplay is shotty with controls, but I also read that the graphics are about the same quality as a PS2, and for me, graphics on the 360 and PS3 should be equally as good for all games across these systems. I will see what the gameplay looks like for myself and judge then, but I don't think that I would buy it, I would rent it first to test it out. Capatain America: Super Soldier is out for PS3 and 360, but like all spin offs from movies, probably just another blah game. Lastley is the DLC for Left 4 Dead 2: Dead Air, we need to get Eh-Rok over here so that we can finally finish that game and maybe get this DLC, but I do agree with him, this is mainly a game you should play with friends, makes it much more fun and interesting than by yourself. I would still play this game all the way through by myself though, just to pinpoint the differences. However, once Dead Island comes out, it will be a tough competition for Left4Dead to keep up.
What I Am Playing
This week, I mainly played CivWorld and Angry Birds online, and mixed it up a little with Rockband 3. Rockband 3 I played merely to advance further in my career mode, nothing special there, as I have not downloaded any DLC for it yet, although, Harmonix did reach their 3000 tracks mark this week with their newest weekly DLC release. I also played some of Monster Hunter Tri, starting this game over as I didn't make it very far before so I may as well start over. I do have to admit thought that with our new house, I either need a bigger tv or sit closer in order to read the words from the story. But oh well, its plenty worth it, that game one of the most impressive Wii games that I have ever played. This week I am going to try and go do some trade ins and maybe pick up Twilight Princess, another one that I have been wanting, just don't think of it until after I have left the store, ha ha ha. Civ World is starting to be addictive to me, reminds me a lot like Civilation, only kind of cooler because you can just play online, and you have all facebook community members to play with, especially if your friends in your list are playing it too. Angry Birds of course is addicting to anyone that attempts to play it. This game is for any age range, from children to adults, its just sheer fun!
Well that is all from me this week, be sure and pop on over and check out my music blog for some more great times with REAPER!!
Hopefully everyone had a great week, I know I did, I had a yard sale over the weekend, made some money so I can't complain. This week is going to be a busy week for me with work and house work right when I get home, so lets begin.
Again, there was not much being released this week to get too excited about. However, there are still a few good new releases worth brief discussion. First is the L.A. Noir: Reefer Madness DLC. This is basically a new case that expands on the last one from the game disc. If you were a fan of L.A. Noir, definitely you should download it, as it is sure to be a hit with fans. Next up is the latest Harry Potter game, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Not much to say about this one, maybe it will be better than the other ones, but I am pretty sure at this time, its safe to say that this game will be the same song and dance as the other Harry Potter games, which is, not that impressive, just okay graphics, and same type of gameplay over and over again. The one that I am looking forward to this week is NCAA Football 12, Its Game Day Baby!! This game is sure to impress if you have played any of the other ones from the past. You can tell that they have listened to their fans, fixing the controls, designing a much better control scheme and a lot better flow in the overall gameplay. This game is on my list of must haves if I win that PS3 next week (stay posted to see if I end up winning it). The introductions for the teams has been revamped and has a lot more detailed intros for each team, making you feel like you are actually there in the game, staring down your opponent. If you’re a sports fan, definitely this is one worth adding to your collection!
What I Am Playing
This week I was very busy with the yard sale and trying to find a different job, so I didn't have much time to play at all. But one of the games that I did play this week was Monster Hunter Tri. This was a highly anticipated game at the time it was released. The sad news is that it had been so long since I have played it, I had to start over to refresh myself on the gameplay and what you need to do. For the Wii, this game has very impressive graphics and some thrilling gameplay for being so RPG style, especially since I am not normally one to play an RPG style game, I usually find them very boring, however, this one has always had me intrigued, and I want to keep playing. Another game that I played this week from the beginning was The Conduit, another great game for the Wii. It does have a very short campaign, but I am loving going through again and taking my sweet time on each level, trying to collect everything there is so that I know I have beaten it to 100% completion rather than just rushing through it to beat it. I am soon going to get The Conduit 2 and hopefully write a review on it. Finally, I played some more of Rock Band 3. Not much to update with that one, they are always releasing new tracks for DLC, I am just trying to get it beat so I can get some new tracks on it.
Well that is all for this week, tomorrow there will be a new music review, I just need the rest of this evening to finish listening to all the albums, there was quite a bit of good releases this week. Stay tuned for Eh-Rok's blog for this week, he is camping right now, but is going to try and post from his PS3. If he can't he will be writing a long one next week.
I will be following the same format as Eh-Rok for my blogs, I feel it is great to go over new releases with all of you, our thoughts on them, as well as let you know what we are playing, letting you kind of see what we are all about and what types of games we enjoy. Until I get another system (hopefully soon) most of what I will be playing will be outdated Wii games, but will still give you all a good perspective, and as always, comments are greatly appreciated!
The biggest release this week that I am excited for even though I can't get it is the Annihilation DLC for Black Ops. Eh-Rok will be getting it, so I will be able to play with him on it, but I am psyched because Treyarch has put a lot of heart into this game and has not let gamers down. One of my anticipated maps is Hazard because I love bigger maps, even though they come with a lot of campers. I love the challenge of trying to be able to get across the map to the spawn points to get everyone, while trying to not get hit by snipers. Drive In and the new zombie map look like they are going to be some of my new favorites too, especially with me being a run-and-gunner, guaranteed to gain a lot of XP in Drive In! Also coming this week is UFC Personal Trainer: The Ultimate Fitness system coming to PS3, and 360, this game is interesting to me. It looks like a good workout game, but really, who wants to sit there and punch air? It would have been really cool if they had some sort of peripheral with it, like an actual bag or something like that for you to actually hit, that would have been awesome. I own the Wii Active games, and those seem awfully repetitive on the types of workouts, and this game appears to be the same way, only with some boxing thrown in. Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition is coming out, as well as Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3, Sniper: Ghost Warrior. On the 3DS we have Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, which from the trailers looks like it could be pretty bad ass, especially alone in a dark room, but it has a lot of competition still with Zelda: Ocarina Of Time 3D that just came out too. That one was much more anticipated, so I feel any releases over the next couple of weeks on the 3DS will be in the shadows compared to Zelda, but we will see.
What I'm Playing
Last week I went to visit family out of state, so I really didn't get a chance to do a lot of gaming (I really wish I had a handheld on that trip, ha ha). This week though, I will be getting on 3 games on the Wii: Tiger Woods 12, Black Ops, and restarting Resident Evil 4. Tiger Woods 12 to me is a great way to relax right after work, or when I feel like golfing but don't have the money, Tiger Woods is always a good alternative to that, other than that though, this game is not on my hardcore play list. Call Of Duty: Black Ops is my favorite FPS on the Wii right now, and the game that I play the most, only on multiplayer at this point. The main interest for me is the fact that there is so much replay value, always trying to get to the next Prestige Level. I will be the first to admit that compared to the 360 and PS3, this version SUCKS, but hey, since all I have is Wii to play it on for now, its pretty bad ass, and I feel that I am very good at it. When I get a new system, it will be one hell of a challenge to get where I am at on the Wii, but more than willing for the challenge. Finally, I decided to clear my save file and start over on Resident Evil 4. The first time I played this game, I never finished it, it kicked my ass, I got pissed, and put it away. Now there aren't any really good zombie games on the Wii, and I have been craving zombies since playing Left 4 Dead 2 with Eh-Rok, so I am going to give this game another whirl, let's hope I don't get pissed and put it away and that I am still playing it next week, it all depends on my workload for the week. Hopefully this weekend Eh-Rok and I will be playing the new COD map pack and some more Left 4 Dead 2, we will both give you an update on that next week.
Well, that is it for me on my first blog post, I will be starting to do more music reviews too, as I am a huge music fan. We are also going to try and add shows/movies, but that will come at a later time, I hope you enjoy our blog, please give us any feedback. My posts will more than likely be every Monday, and Eh-Rok's every Thursday, this way it gives you guys more variety for the week. Every Tuesday, keep an every out for a new blog from me with new music reviews, as I listen to a lot of the new releases that come out, across all genres. Thanks for reading, enjoy your week!
