All About Cobra2525
Well I can honestly say that it has been a while since I have made a blog. The last one I made was about the Mass Effect 3 beta, well that game has already come and gone and despite what everyone thinks about the ending I still loved it and maybe I will do a blog on the ending. Any way that is not the point, the point now is for me to share the games that I am looking forward to this upcoming fall. Yes it is that time of year again when it gets colder out, the leaves change, and I have to return to class tomorrow...
"Fall is here, hear the yell, back to school, ring the bell."
However not all is lost, because with this fall comes some awesome new games, now I did this last year and I will do it in the same style as before, so here are some games I am looking forward to this fall:
The first one is Assassin's Creed 3:
I have always been a pretty big fan of this series to begin with and I always enjoyed them for what they were worth. Last year I put Revalations on my list and to be honest I was pretty let down with that game, not that it was bad or anything I just don't think it was as good as the second one or Brotherhood. However this one looks like it can top the second one (which I consider the best) with its all new gameplay mechanics, great story, and not to mention a great setting, this game looks like it is sure to be a great one.
The next game is Dishonoered:
I heard people talk about this game and I always see ads for it in my local gamestop but it wasn't until the other day that I started to watch some of the gameplay demos and trailers. When I did I was sucked in. The gameplay looks like it takes ideas from Deus Ex with the idea of handling levels in a number of different ways, either going stealth, full on action or a little bit of both. I also love the setting, a England inspired steam punk city that just made me want to get this game the day it comes out.
The next game is Halo 4:
I am a huge fan of this series and have loved these games since I got the first two for my PC. Even though it is a different developer I know they will do a good job at making this game great. Although I haven't watched a huge amount of gameplay for this game I know what it will not let me down and I will probably have a huge Halo marathon to catch up on the story.
The last game tonight is Resident Evil 6:
RE4 was amazing and was one of the best games on the last generation of consoles and was just over all an awesome game in both horror and action. RE5 was trying to go for a more action style but I still feel like it was stuck in the middle at times, I still enjoyed it, but not as much as 4. Operation Raccoon City was a huge let down and isn't worth anyone's time. However when I saw the first trailer for this game my jaw dropped at how awesome and action packed it looked. This may not please people who are horror fans, but for me I still will give it a try.
These are the games I am most looking forward to, or at least the ones I can think of right now (I swear I will be in class tomorrow and remember another one XD). Maybe you share the same games as me, or maybe you have something else in mind, I would love to know what you guys are looking forward to.
Those of you that read any of my previous blog posts or reviews will know that I love Mass Effect with a burning passion. To this day Mass Effect 2 is probably one my favorite games of all time. Now when I heard that they were coming out with a demo for Mass Effect 3 I got pretty hyped. After being delayed for about a month I finally got to play through it twice and try out the multiplayer portion of it and all in all... I liked it. The Demo starts off with Shepard meeting up with familar faces; such as Kaiden/Ashley, Anderson and a new character who is going to be a team mate in Mass Effect 3, James. After the events of the Mass Effect 2 DLC Arrival Shepard has been relieved of duty and is being put on trial for destroying an entire star system. As Shepard tries to explain that the Reapers are in fact real, they show up themselves and attack Earth.
Shepard and Anderson then take up arms and escape the doomed planet on the Normandy. Along the way you fight against some familiar enemies such as Husks and a new one called a cannibal which can shoot at you
As you reach the Normandy Anderson decides to stay behind and help any others on Earth, Shepard then departs and says that he will be back for him and that if Shepard wants any hope at stopping the Reapers, he/she will need to get every species to help him/her.
With Earth in ruins the demo then flips to a later part in the game where Shepard and company travel to the Salarian homework to escort some female Krogan to safety. When this section starts you are given two team mates; Garrus and Liara who is making a return since the first game. The facility you are at is soon attacked by a group known as Cerberus, a group who you used to work for but for known reasons have allied themselves with the Reapers.
You fight your way through the area and are able to get a female Krogan out of there safely, who is probably important to the plot. This concludes the single player demo. I thought it was very well done and gives you a good taste at whats to come in only a few short weeks.
There is also some multiplayer action thrown into the demo. It is a four player co-op mode called "Galaxy at War" Where you and up to three other people fight waves of enemies to clear out an area of importance. The mode is like Horde mode in Gears of War where you fight for as long as you can. What makes this mode even better is that you get to play as other species such as: Asari, Krogan, Drell etc. and the multiplayer will effect the single player which sounds awesome.
The Multiplayer isn't all that bad and can be pretty fun for a while. All in all I cannot wait for Mass Effect 3, it has a lot of things going for it and I hope that they will all pay off.
I know I have been pretty lazy with this subject, but now I think I should just wrap this whole thing up.
Worst games I played in 2011:
Call of Jurarez: The Cartel

Both of these games are terrible and should be avoided like the black death...
