All About Jack_240
All right, it's been a long time since I played a handheld game on both DS and PSP and I have to say the PSP is in its last breaths, there are clearly no games that offer me a true experience like Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker and I last tried Parasite Eve: The 3rd Birthday and Wow, a way to kill a franchise...
Last Wednesday, I went to the nearest video game retail in town and I picked 2 3DSs. One for me and for my little brother, and I have to say. 3DS is refreshing start for me for a return to a handheld gaming "ONCE AGAIN". I know I'm not playing any 3DS games at this moment, but I'm playing Final Fantasy Tactics A2 "DS game" on the 3DS since I haven't been able to find out where my DS lite was. But what I'm waiting for patiently is Resident Evil Mercenary 3D. I've been watching previews and gameplay footages on youtube.com and I'm impressed, I like beautiful graphics. That's why it's gonna be my first 3D game for me. It's like my 3DS debut.
Ok, talking about the device itself, 3DS, when I first touched the device, it felt heavier than it looked actually I was surprised giving the how light the DS lite is "my DSlite" I tried the 3D effects and they're amazing but they hurt the eye that's why I don't recommend turning on the 3D all the time and only when you're playing a 3D game. The DS games are compatible with 3DS, but no 3DS effects and there's no need for them. Touch screen is very smooth and I love it because it's so responsive, it's more responsive than its predecessors even while typing or handwriting, everything is very responsive which I like that. Analog Stick has been added which awesome but why not dual analogs?? Everything so far is good and I can't complain about anything right now. But there are things missing like the store, the browser .. you know, the usual stuff.
Along with the 2 3DSs, I've picked up Half-life 2 "PC" and it's a nice game but it's not like what the critics say, maybe I'm playing it in the wrong time because it's 2011 and the game's a 2004 game. But valve are masters of the single-playing first-person shooters. If you look down their past/recent games, Portal Series, Left4Dead Series, and Half-Life series.. They're all single-playing focused.
Ok moving along to the PS3's PSN and I see articles on ign.com that's gonna be online on May 2nd... I don't really know Sony was attcked hard this time and I don't think it's gonna be the same again. I just hope my account isn't stolen though I don't have any penny on the store. Nevertheless, I'm not that worried.
Hello everyone, and happy Valentine's Day.
This time of year is a great time for games, just like last year, when we got games like Baynoetta, Final Fantasy XIII, God of War 3, and Heavy Rain. This time around, we'll be getting some goodies like Killzone 3, Crysis 2, Socom 4, Final Fantasy IV the complete compilation, and many upcoming titles along the way. But this year seems all about First-Person Shooter which is one of my favorite genres, but I kind of bored from it, too many FPS games and most of them are just waste of time in my opinion. Take the latest CoD title from Activision which has become an annual-released franchise every Novermber-December and each time, the quality of their games goes down. I think I'm giving the FPS genre its last chance to redeem itself with Killzone 3. It made me excited of course. I mean, we got the move controller supports the game and THE AWESOME gun accessory, the SharpShooter
This alone will make me go nuts.. The Sharp Shooter supports Killzone 3 and Socom 4, and Socom 4 is looking very interested from what I've seen. I think, it's gonna be a little costy though.
As for my next purchase, I've decided to get me Mass Effect 2 "PS3 Edition" and Little Big Planet 2, I've played it with my friend's house and it was amazing. I want something co-op like that, the last good co-op game I had was in 2010... maybe early 2010 when I played Borderland. Other than that, games were all MP or SP.
I hope Mass Effect 2 can satisfy my RPG ego... the last good RPG was ... when was the last time I played an RPG???
not this one... xD
this one... xD
Ok, people are going crazy with those hacks on the PS3, and I gotta say I didn't think many people would hack their system but unfortuantely I was wrong. Hackers are freaking everywhere. I know I didn't hack my system "I DIDN'T HACK MY SYSTEM.. I SWEAR"
As far as I know, the CoD games are a heaven for hackers due to popularity of the game. I'm concerned, it'll become the next PSP regarding the hack tools and stuff. If it ever happened we will meet people online flying, running as fast as the light, automatic-firing snipers and RPGs.
Hello everyone, and it's been a long time since I've written a new blog here on my gamespot account.
The worst-kept secret is now announced and named as the NGP, well, it's a smart name and it looks like it's showing a futuristic technology in the handheld market. I mean, it really rivals the PS3 in its graphical power, when Uncharted was shown, actaully, it was being played at that time. I couldn't believe my eyes. The game looked like Uncharted 2: Amongs Theives. Not only it was played, the NGP showed off some of its potential as a strong competitive to the Nintendo's 3DS. So far, the 3DS is only like the Nintendo regular DS, I haven't seen anything new except for its technological improvement. Unlike the NGP, it has motion senor just like the Dual Shock on the PS3, it has a back-pedal sensor where you actually play using it. Also, it's become something common, the touch screen. Well, it's not a bad thing but it was inevitable, any could've guessed that so it's not something shocking. But the NGP is a real beast, but everyone here on the site is worried about its Price. I can't blame anyone because let's not forget Sony's E3 2006 "599$"... .
There are lots of good games coming and I hope they won't be jsut an NGP ports from the PS3's library.
what I've seen so far:
* Uncharted: No Subtitle Yet.
* Metal Gear Solid NGP: Not confirmed as a game.
* Yakuza: Same as MGS.
and I've heard about third-party developers like Activision developing their biggest bad boy, Call of Duty for the NGP.
I may sound unreal but the long-forgotten Resident Evil Portable that was originally developed for the PSP, should be switched to the NGP. I mean, what's the benefit now of releasing it for the current PSP if they ever consider it?
The games that I'd like to see coming to NGP:
Metal Gear Solid "if it were just lik Peace Walker, that would be an epic win"
A new Persona game.
I've just bought Dead Space 2 for my Xbox360 and I gotta say, any mom would hate this game..lol. It's really awesome. I played horror games like Alan Wake, Resident Evil, and Silent HIll. But I don't think I've seen a game so brutal and violent as much as Dead Space. Personally, I didn't like the first one but what can I do? I gotta play it sometime later, but I think I'm getting the bigger picture thanks to the recap movie.
