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!
