4Jan 13So I let my three year old try Ratchet and Clank Full Frontal Assault today. He's always trying to play games that are too complicated for him, but he usually learns eventually how to play. So I figured I'd help him by playing too. Low and behold when I tried to press x to join the game a crappy message came up saying something like "you can't play split-screen at this resolution" (that was not verbatim). I was like WTF? Seriously? This is a brand new game. Why would they make a game that's incapable of supporting 1020 DPI? I don't really know how to change the resolution because; first it doesn't give any instructions on what resolution it requires, nor does it give any instructions on how to change the resolution, but even if it did, is there really any excuse for this in a new game? I think not. So needless to say I already didn't like this game to start with so I like it even less today and gave this game a very low score on my review.
3Mar 12Ok so I played the ME3 Demo, I liked it ok, but to be honest the multi-player mode is too tough to play unless you have all four players. What ME3 does not do, is what games such as Borderlands do, which is, adjust the difficulty level of the enemies in accordance with the umber of players. That I think is going to be a downfall of the multi-player feature. I for one don't particularly like to play with people I don't know, because as with RE5 it takes about 12 players to find one you can stand playing with, who doesn't irritate you, doesn't cuss or act stupid, or doesn't attempt to boss you around when you don't need or want their leadership. So most of the time in these types of games, with the exception of RE5 I don't play with anyone except my room mate. We found the enemies in even wave one, to be almost impossible to kill on our own. Since I haven't had a chance to play the full game I won't rate this game. In addition the Story mode seems interesting even if it is just another military shooter game. I will have to rate the multi-player option of the demo as a 4.0 for difficulty, lack of intuitive adjustment and frankly for making us stand and "hack" for no apparent reason during waves.
14Feb 12So I wrote a review for Alice Madness Returns today, because I am frustrated and sick of ps3 games being more frustrating and difficult than entertaining and enjoyable. First I have had it with the plethora of annoying clone first person shooter games. Second I am angry that the few games which are not clone first person shooters, are being ruined by shoty graphics, shoty game-play controls or by being too difficult and frustrating. Alice Madness Returns is just yet another example of games gone bad.
