I have been playing Witcher 3 for some time now. It is fantastic. It is like the game of thrones edition of Skyrim but bigger. It is also quite a beautiful game. The landscapes are amazing. Am I being clear enough?
(Note: The controls for swimming are absolutely horrible. The worst. I mean it. Also trying to get onto the stupid horse. And trying to control it. Just bad. Anyway.)
Like I was saying, very good looking game. Was I clear on that point?
The problem is that I have spent most of …

Halo 5 Multi-player Beta

I’ve been waiting to play the Halo 5 Multi-player Beta for awhile now as I was curious to see how much it changed since the last game. And change it has. I am still undecided if I like all the changes, but I am liking playing it a lot. It feels faster, but not too fast. The aiming seems more fluid and accurate.
It looks beautiful as I would expect, the weapons look and sound great. I love the fact that if you don’t quite make a jump, your Spartan will …

I wonder if Sony ever listens to it’s customers. Ever. What kind of focus groups and testers did they use for this game? I know if they had of said to me “if it took over 20 minutes just to get to the title screen of a new game for the first time, would that impress you or annoy you?” I would have to slap them. I know that Sony has a habit of making the totally wrong choices, but these people or making games. There must be someone who …

Marvel Brothel??? (SFW)

I am not even sure where to start with this one.  Perhaps a quote from the site that provided the review.
“A fan-made project built using the RPG Maker 2003 engine, Marvel Brothel is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: a video game where Professor X decides that the best way to further humanity’s acceptance of mutants would be by literally pimping out the heroines of the Marvel Universe to a never-ending stream of johns.”
I haven’t played the game, but from the review it seems quite ‘interesting’. Go check it …

Does Every TV Show Deserve its Own Video Game?

For those of us that were raised on a steady diet of TV and video games, most would probably agree that it is a very rare occurrence when a video game based off a TV show is anything more than disappointing. Sure there have been a few exceptions in the past; Darkwing Duck, Rescue Rangers, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for example were all TV inspired video games that were considered successful games for the most part. On the opposite side of the spectrum however, there were games like Beavis …

Quick Potshots at Games I Haven’t Played All The Way Through

My gaming life has been in disarray lately. In anticipation of FarCry 2 (which is being shipped to me this very moment) I set out to finish the original, which I’ve let hang longer than any other game I failed to beat. I started playing FarCry like two years ago, got halfway through and then stopped. I picked it up about two months ago and got 3/4ths through and now I haven’t played it since. Obviously, this is serious business and priority #1.
But my impressions of FarCry have been pretty …

Five Stupid Things About…Bioshock

Even though it was inevitable, I’m still pleasantly surprised to see that BioShock 2 is already to the point where they have a little trailer out for it.
It was only about a year and a half ago that Bioshock smashed into the gaming scene like an overhyped meteor. Critical acclaim for this game would have had you believing that it was Jesus coming back in DVD-ROM form.
While many gamers complained that this was a watered down Kids-R-Us version of System Shock with hint arrows and infinite lives, others embraced it …

I tried to be paitent and wait for more clarification on this point, but I guess it’s either not coming or it’s just as simple as Blizzard is really just going to screw us again. In my other post, I was pretty much joking when I feigned fear at what the other announcements coming out of Blizz-con would be.
Honestly, a fee-based battle.net?! It’s really like they sat down and came up with a list of ways they could start alienating fans and become the Microsoft of the gaming world. This …
