FATALITY [19 Jan 2006|01:52am]

good news for all Mortal Kombat fans who are ps2 & xbox owners. there is a new MK coming out. not sure if its designed to futher the story line or be more like MK Trilogy. the supposed features this will have:
" 60+ characters. Almost every character from all previous MK games (Motaro, however, was noticeably absent from the Game Informer picture and it is said he "might not make the cut").
Improved air kombat.
Directional throwing.
New Deathtraps.
All new konquest mode that will play similarly to Mortal Kombat Shaolin Monks.
Kustom Fatalities - Each character will have a pre-set of around 20 moves in which to dispatch their opponent.
Kreate-a-Fighter - Every detail of the new characters, like appearance and attacks, will be created by the player.
Build your own Fighting Style - You choose which attacks your kreated kharacter will use in their fighting style, then name it!
The Krypt will be replaced by "The Vault", and all of its contents will be unlockable through any play mode. " - that all sounds good to me.

GT4 First impressions [18 Jul 2005|07:43pm]


The graphics on this game could compete with any xbox title. Its very excellent. The engines sounds are twice as good as gran turismo 3. They finally got them right. The tracks are much better too.

Sadly there is not enough on this disc to keep you happy. This game is more half baked than the GT3 release. What is sadder is how long they had to make this game right.

Online mode missing
84 Pontiac Fiero SE missing (I guess they must have cut a bunch of cars and didnt say anything!)
No official drift mode (unless I can't find it in the badly done, slow loading, mess of menus)
The cars are jerky now instead of smooth like GT3. Cornering gives you some kind of indescribable headache with the use of the stick. The bumpers on the curves don't feel right.
No Damage - This would be okay, except its replaced with 5 second penalties that slow your car down. They are penalizing me for the programmers not putting in car damage!
The "car encyclopedia" they talk about in reviews is a myth. Definitely not every car in those original car lists are on there.

Overall, its a complete disappointment. I spent more time in the slow menus looking for things than racing when I first booted the disc.
This game is badly designed overall and not finished despite how polished everything looks.

So get this game if your really interested in a specific car that actually made the cut. It will look awesome and handle almost like the real thing.
You'd have to be crazy for playing through this one if you've already played through GT3 or GT2.

*note* I tried getting this game online with a hack. Search "xlink kai" and there is a whole community of people that play LAN modes in games over the net. But it just didnt work that well. I never got into the game because the sequence for setting up a match was so difficult, even after I had setup my computer and router perfectly. Playing online with hacks for this one seemed like a total waste of my time.

Good things I liked about the game

1. They fixed the braking. Braking feels real compared to GT3
2. It has new cars, like Mustang, GTO (sounds like a F1 upgraded!), and Scions, Subaru WRX.
3. Graphics are sweet
4. Photo Mode

Overall. It doesnt have my car that I drive in real life, or an online mode. Considering this was the only thing I was looking forward to..everything else in the game is a waste of my time. I can't recommend it really unless you need to feel a new physics engine or see what the PS2 can really do. I'm sure there will be better ones in the future.

midnight club 3: dub edition [17 Jul 2005|11:27am]

Its an okay game. The city they made is pretty amazing, but you can tell that it was built so you can keep driving in a straight line in every direction for racing. The GTA style levels don't really make sense when its just racing. It makes getting and completing the next race very annoying. The load screens are a little slow. This game doesn't give you enough upgrades or prize cars when completing races. After about 2 hours playing it, I'm still stuck in the same 64 impala, which is really boring.
The game physics aren't as good as NFS:Underground. The cars seem really jerky. Basically this game is a mix of a rap music video, GTA, Burnout, and NFS, and it doesn't do either well. The car customization is pretty fun, but every part costs a little bit of money...money you should save to upgrade the performance or save to buy the next car. So basically there is no point to upgrade your car too much if you want to win the game. The music is really good in this game. Really really good. It doesnt sound as good as the NFS underground games. NFS:1 has cooler looking customization options and more import cars and is actually better than Midnight Club 3. If your really into cars, I don't think you'd like this game...even though they offer tons of customization options, and even liscense plates from every state and year...the game is kind of depressing and lacks focus.

NFS Underground:1 is a better, more competitive, game than this, with waaay better looking cars.
So far I'm looking forward to play NFS Most Wanted.

Bush administration's policy on video game violence? [07 Mar 2005|10:40am]

Does anyone know what the current Bush administration policy is on video game violence? I'm doing research for something I'm writing. I've been searching, but haven't found anything. Thanks for your help!!

What? Why are you reading what I have to say? You could be gone out to your nearest game retailer, buying this incredible piece of work and playing it yourself! Go... get off the computer and go and get it. Now.

Rating: Too damned good to be put on a scale.

Christmas Ps2 Season [07 Nov 2004|11:01pm]

The new slim PS2....awesome....EXCEPT it doesnt use disk drive. Thanks sony for cancelling a good idea. I was really anticipating new SOCOM maps to download, but now you kill the hard drive. If you look inside the original ps2, you'll notice a huge empty space. Hey, maybe they should have not done expansion in the first place and would have had a mini ps2 already...and you just know the power supply is going to be on the outside of that thing. Blech. The PSone redesign was revolutionary, I mean I can put it in my backpack, and take Wip3out anywhere with a tv. The slimeline Ps2 looks like a long book, which isnt as nice to transport and has moving parts (disc drive eject) which is a downside. Sony has made bad choices. Its a megacorporation. You know because they JUST decided to add Mp3 to their new walkman lines.

GT4 is not getting Online play. FUCK that. I've been waiting at least a year and half for Gran Turismo online and its not coming this christmas.
I think the GT series is another under the guidance of Sony if I'm not wrong along side of SOCOM.

I would get xbox, but its $10 a month online. The xbox and sony models are on making money first not good games. There is no reason to pay extra for internet service you already have. Massively Multiplayer games might be an exception.

I still have faith in 3rd party PS2 developers and Sega, as well as the gamecube system is still a "gamers game system" (Can you say Ikaruga?) but not as cool as the dreamcast (which I havent aquired yet, and still plan on doing)

New cool stuff. The eyetoy is getting new games from Sega and an "Air Boarding" game that you use your body and arms as the controller.

Also this is pretty sweet for consoles:

There is not a single game I'm waiting for this christmas however. I still need to play Katamari Damacy, PSI-OPs, Burnout 3 and a few others however.
I'm really interested in the new wave of First Person shooters....Call of Duty, Halo, Doom 3, Unreal Tournament not all coming out for PS2. My mac is too old to run any of these as well, but I'm still an old UT fan.

Snake Eater should be a good game, but I don't see it passing MGS2. Its been so long since I played MGS2, that I'm not interested. Its been too long since their first preview of the game even. HOWEVER, If it turns out to be like the game incarnation of the movie PREDATOR I will piss my pants!

I was VERY excited about the anouncement of Timesplitters 3 (SHIT YES!!! X 4000) Timesplitters 2 was better than Goldeneye and Perfect Dark. It was just so classic, so everyone should still pick it up. I lost my copy, I'm going to get another. The developers really know what they were doing in creating game that is true to the FPS genre.

Nintendo DS, pretty cool. Sony PSP maybe. In america you will still look like a loser carrying any of these, unless it doubles as a phone. The nokia ngage is still WTF.

The outlook is not as good as I thought. After this winter PS2 is going to be pretty dead, unless they start making more original games. There will be one more wave of "sequel games" if were lucky. But thats really sad to me, because if I wasnt playing those in 2002 I wont be in 2005.

I guess you can tell I need a dose of dreamcast...really bad.

ICO review [07 Nov 2004|10:37pm]

Well I thought i'd pick this one up because it was getting rave reviews as the most underrated game ever ETC. Well it turns out this is the most overrated underrated game ever made. There is just nothing too unique about it except character design. The gameplay an environments are boring. The levels are sparse and not interactive, as well the puzzles in the game are hardly puzzles. What is worse there is actually a fighting engine. Your a little boy with a stick and you beat ghosts. Its very repetitive. The entire game is an escort mission where the girl your trying to save is completely dumb and helpless. There were times when I was completely stuck. But it happened to be when I didnt have the patience that I had to hold down a button for a somewhat lenghty period of time while the girl was trying to climb up. Most of the hard parts of the game were figuring out controls like that, or figuring out that you can use part of the environment to do something. NOT using your brain for anything complex or redeeming.

Save yourself and get Devil May cry which came out at around the same time, and is much more fun to play, has better ghosts, and weapons. Plus you won't have to drag around a girl that deserves to be left behind.

Note: I stopped playing this one halfway through, after I found out online that there is a final "BOSS" at the end of the game. blech.

This one should have been some kind of exploration or puzzle game. I would have liked a nonviolent or smarter way to defeat ghosts than beating them with a stick. If they had to use violence, please give me a grenade launcher.

I was liking the graphics and animation, and the sound was okay. If was I supposed to feel that this game was mystical or enlightening somehow as the graphics suggested, they shouldn't have backed it up with gameplay that might have been revolutionary on a PC in 1998.

I spent tonights game session tuning an Opel Speedster to run like my Pontiac Fiero GT, in Gran Turismo 3. Sweet!....except the fiero is 900 pounds heavier. That probably makes a difference. You can't add wheight onto the cars in this game :(
Is anyone else excited about GT4? I checked, its actually going to have fieros! thats insane.
I am up for any online multiplayer challenges!

Been a while since I updated, and when I did, it was about playing The Suffering. Well guess what? I never played it! For some reason, I"m not really that anxious to play it anymore... Dunno why.

Seriously, I'm looking forward to the upcoming games from Naughty Dog and Insomniac: Jak 3 and Ratchet & Clank 3: Up Your Arsenal. The previous installments were too cool, and I'm expecting no less from the upcoming ones!

Hm... did anyone actually play The Suffering? Can you tell me how it was?

No need for The Suffering [20 Feb 2004|09:07am]

According to my sources, the newest survival horror game named The Suffering is supposedly gonna ship it's way to the shelves this year.

From what I heard, the game is supposed to also be very promising. You play the part of an inmate named Torque who is on death row for killing his family. However, before his sentance is carried out, a raid of ghosts and zombies come through and attack the prison, where Torque finds himself free of his cell.

Despite the heavy blood, violence and disturbing imagery, I don't know too much more after that, except for the fact that there is three different endings that are so disturbing that you may be scared to play it twice.

They say the game's visual performance is grand and it carries alot of weight thanks to a stellar audio system. I have great hopes for this one, and I hope it'll come soon. I can't WAIT to play it @_@... been a while since I've had a good horror game.

DDR questions... [16 Feb 2004|10:20pm]

Anyone know when the Dance Dance Revolution floor pads for home use first came into existance? It was in arcades long before that, right?

DDR is available for PSone/PS2 and X-Box, and no other consoles...at least with feet-play?

Are there other similar games available for consoles? Pump It Up isn't, right?

Thanks for any and all help! And sorry for any cross-posting.

Need ICO screenshot!!!! [12 Feb 2004|04:49pm]

I need to find a specific screenshot from the game Ico, and I have had no luck. It's of Ico reaching out to Yorda. She's sitting on the ground, and I think they're outside...at least there's grass around. And he has his stick in his other hand.

The reason I need this is because I'm writing something about the game and I need the picture with it. I actually have the picture. The thing is...I have to credit the website I got it from. I can't remember where I got it from.

I've checked out gamespot.com, the official Ico website, google image search....nothin!!! Help please!!!
