All About Kyran87
Gamespot blogs don't have a common space in my life for me to put as much time into them as I'd like - it probably won't ever be like that due to the fact that I have plans to start a gaming website of some kind.
I surpassed owning 200 games this year. My XBox 360 stack comes up to my waist. And at least 6 games are going to be added to that stack before the year's out. It has been an alright year for games to be quite honest. MW2 had it's up and downs but hopefully CoD: Black Ops will knock us all out of the water once again - a game I do believe will be without doubt the best game of 2010 [tied with Halo Reach].
So onto the games I will be purchasing:
Halo Reach Limited Edition
I'm a big fan of individuals that put in an incredibly huge amount of time into creating games/game franchises the way companies such as Bungie, Bethesda, Dice, Valve and Treyarch do. Which is why the Limited Edition was a no-brainer. If I could, I would have definitely gone for the Legendary Edition - but I may purchase that at a later date. Looking forward bigtime to the multiplayer as well as the campaign of course.
Fallout: New Vegas
Being a big fan of both Fallout 3 and the incredibly unique music score that made it stand out as much as it did, I had to make this one of my final purchases of 2010. Really excited for this one also.
So I was a huge fan of Fifa 10 last year, as well as Fifa 09 the year before. I first started with the Fifa franchise back in 1998 and have always loved what they've done [I don't like Pro Evo - sorry.] - initial feelings about the Pro Passing are very positive and the fact that I've seen it all in action really got me excited for Fifa 11.
They put Rooney on the cover again tho. Bloody hell. Lol
Medal Of Honor
I was a little bit sceptical in terms of the beta - but then again I had to remind myself that it was of course just a beta. And this game does indeed prove to be a very successful release. Probably not as much as people thought it would be in regards to it being able to possibly surpass Black Ops [which, if you're smart, will know now is practically impossible.] but I do hope the campaign side of things does give me a lot to enjoy - as well as the multiplayer component.
Call Of Duty: Black Ops Prestige Edition
If you're a gamer who pre-orders games the way I do, you know how fantastic the feeling is when such a masterpiece of a franchise arrives in your mail. When it was Call Of Duty: World At War I had that overwhelming feeling of excitement and joy. Besides, it was my first COD purchase. When it was the turn of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 - again - the huge feeling of excitement. Especially due to the fact that I had purchased the Prestige Edition, and received it a day before release.
But when Call Of Duty: Black Ops arrives, I have no idea how I will feel in terms of being able to describe it. But I know it will be the biggest game I ever have the pleasure of playing. And that Wager Mode and customisation is just begging to have all the time in the world invested in it.
As well as the RC car.
I would never lie to you all. This game is going to be my most played alongside Modern Warfare 2.
It's Battlefield: Bad Company on steriods. And I'm loving it.
You all know the gamertag. If you manage to get a hold of it you know what to do.
I'm going to make more of a habit in doing a blog on Gamespot from now on. It's nice to have a sense of stability in life so I'll stick to a nice schedule of minimum once a week :-). I think I'll call these ones.... Kyntexx Friday [yeah I know - real original] - so much to talk about so let's get right into it.
Need For Speed: Shift
Now I will admit I was quite disappointed with the video review of this game from Gamespot. No attention paid to the revolutionary new cockpit driving experience. No proper mention of the matchmaking in which it seperates the men from the boys [aggressive from true-line racers]. And the driver viewable in the video seemed as though he was deliberately horrible [let's just hope it was deliberate.] Nevertheless, I will be getting this game in the post in a few hours so I'll defeinitely be posting my own review on the game, as well as my plans to review all the games I own [such a task].
Assassin's Creed 2
Assassin's Creed 2 has been on my wishlist ever since I completed the first game. Although there were complaints of the repetitiveness, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience in playing this game - from the gameplay to the breathtaking scenery. And now we will all soon embark on yet another magnificient journey, taking the control of Ezio Auditore de Firenze, a nobleman of Florence from 1476. The videos that have been surfacing on this game have made things seem ever-more exciting, and this is definitely on the pre-order list.
Fifa 10 up, PES 2010 down.
So I downloaded the Fifa 10 demo before it was even showing on the Spotlight section of the Dashboard on the 360. And was immediately blown away. It plays just like it's predecessor, but the small things make things so much better.
The addition of 360 degree movement is a BIG step in football games. It really does set the pace for PES 2010 [which i'll get to in a second.] - I fouled an opponent and the players continued moving. I was left just watching them as they went into taking a quick free kick [another great addition]. The animations are much more swift and flow with each other perfectly. The commentary still hits on things that isn't really happening, or just doesn't match up with what's taking place, but Fifa 09 brought tons of realism to the genre and that will without a doubt grow with the release of Fifa 10.
PES 2010 demo I downloaded a few hours ago. The gameplay is the same as it's been for about 3 years. The graphics have improved but there is a lack of facial animations that made Gerrard's face move minimally as he shot a goal past the keeper. Unfortunately I think Konami are going to lose some more fans this year.
Modern Warfare 2
The big dog. The massive one that is on everyone's minds. The huge release that is Modern Warfare 2.
Now obviously this along with many other games are on my pre-order list [I'm actually getting the Prestige Edition, which I will unleash on here when I get it] so I won't rattle on too much about it. But it wouldn't be a good blog without a MW2 mention right?
Please stay tuned for a NFS Shift review very soon. Out.
