So last week I downloaded the Resident Evil Revelations demo for the 3DS, but I didn’t get round to playing it till this week. And after playing it all I can really say is “meh.”
I’ve never been a fan of the Resident Evil series, and the only previous experience I’ve had is with Resident Evil 5. However, I decided to download the demo to see if I could be persuaded to pick it up.
Sonic Colours, that’s colours with a U by the way, is another step in the right direction. It took the best part of Sonic Unleashed (also with a U), that’s the incredibly fast and enjoyable day stages for those of you who aren’t keeping up (pun intended), and made a whole game of it. But don’t think Sonic Colours hasn’t brought anything new to the table.
So it’s New Years Eve. Excited for the New Year? I’m looking forward to all the new games that are being released, such as Halo 4 and Sonic 4 Episode 2. But instead of looking to the future, let’s look to the past, as we celebrate my Top 10 Games of 2011!
So I logged on to Facebook the other day, and noticed I had a message, from none other than rollo 93. The message contained a link to the Eurogamer website, where codes for the Gotham City Imposters Beta were being given away. After recently playing Arkham Asylum and watching Batman Begins, and The Dark Knight, I have become a huge fan of the Caped Crusader, it’s probably my third favourite franchise. So I hastily made an account, and recieved my code.
Sonic CD has arrived on Xbox Live Arcade, so I thought this was the best time to plug in the PS2 and relive Sonic’s glory days, by playing Sonic CD through Sonic Gems Collection. Sonic CD is often said to be one of Sonic’s greatest games ever. However, I would have to disagree.
RAAM’s Shadow was released as downloadable content for Gears of War 3 yesterday on the Xbox Live marketplace for 1200 Microsoft Points. The DLC is around 3 hours in length, 2GB in size, and adds 250 Gamerscore to the retail game across 10 achievements that are unlocked over multiplayer, campaign and a mixture of the two.
I know it’s a little bit late, but I’ve had this review sitting around on my computer for ages, and being as though I’ve just reviewed a game that’s brilliant and amazing, I thought I’d show the other end of the spectrum. So here’s my review of Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Wii.
Right, so, hello. My first review. Well let’s get straight into it, shall we?
As soon as I first played Sonic Unleashed in 2008, it became the best game I’d ever played. And it managed to hold that spot for almost 3 years. But then came Sonic Generations. It kicked Unleashed off it’s throne, and it’s gonna take a damn good game to take it from Generations. On a side note, Unleashed still holds the title as best Wii game I’ve ever played, and considering the Wii is my favourite console, not a bad title.
So what’s so good about Generations? Allow me to demonstrate. Classic Sonic is running through Green Hill, on his way to kick Robotnik’s arse, when he’s sucked up by a creature known as the Time Eater. Meanwhile, 20 years in the future, Sonic is enjoying his birthday with his friends, when the same thing happens to them. Sonic ends up in a white void, with numerous places from his past, and most importantly, himself from the past. He must team up with his past self, to stop the Time Eater, and save the world, and his friends. Continue reading →
The Escalation Map Pack was released exclusively on Xbox 360 on the 3rd of May 2011. It features 4 new multiplayer maps, Zoo, Convoy, Hotel and Stockpile. It also introduces a new zombie game mode, entitled “Call of the Dead” in which up to 4 players battle against the increasing odds and waves of zombies sent at you by the legendary horror Director, George Romero. He’ll be roaming around the map with a lighting prop. Try and stay clear of him, and whatever you do, don’t shoot him.
The multiplayer aspect of the map pack has been implemented into the game’s playlist rota, with there being an Escalation mode in the hopper with sub-categories of Team Deathmatch, Domination, Search & Destroy and Mosh Pit. The four maps will eventually be added to the main Core, Hardcore and Barebones playlists as were the First Strike maps. Continue reading →
[UPDATE] This post is a little bit later than I had hoped, I got sidetracked by playing Portal 2, and haven’t got as much playtime on this as I had originally planned. I’ve managed to play 92 games at last count, and gotten a game on all four beta maps even Old Town due to an error when the servers were offline. So thanks for that Epic, it’s given me a bit of a head start. A quick thank you to ChatFlap for the mention on his week-daily Vlog last week. Thanks Joe ♥
Now onto my first impressions.
The Gears of War 3 Beta was finally available to the luck people who invested in the Bulletstorm Epic Edition today at 10:30 GMT. Around 500MB of downloading content later, I was online on Gears 3, and this game could be sold tomorrow as a retail game.
Loading up the initial start menu, you can see how Epic have taken ideas from other highly successful franchises such as Call of Duty and Halo, and implemented them into the heart of the system, albeit with a spin on it only Epic could pull off. Continue reading →
