I'm the type of gamer that plays and appreciates all games. I'm pretty opinionated, especially when it's about factual errors. Fighting games are my passion, although I'm not a pro or anything. Oh, and you'll soon realize that I have an obsession with Chun-Li. It's probably not healthy. You might know me because of my PixelJunk Monster guides on YouTube. Yeah, I'm that guy!
In 2010, Mass Effect 2 amazed critics and gamers alike with its supposed brilliance. After a series of rumors and denials, the sequel to a trilogy that was once thought to be an Xbox 360 exclusive was announced for the PlayStation 3. Unfortunately, the first Mass Effect was published by Microsoft and that made the game impossible to port over to the PS3. To compensate for this loss, BioWare included a motion comic to bring gamers up to speed on the story. What makes the package even more enticing are the DLC missions included in the Blu-ray and an updated game engine.
Is Mass Effect 2 really as epic as people make it out to be? Is it even worth buying if you never played the first game?
Sometimes, there are games you can always go back to no matter what. Even though Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, Bayonetta, and God of War III are all awesome, they never fully satisfied my needs as a gamer. There was just something missing and they all felt too familiar. Unique experiences like Heavy Rain are great and all, but it’s not exactly what I’m looking for in a game. Is it a must have? Absolutely. There’s only so much you can get from Heavy Rain though, and that’s a problem when you want more.
This year, there was one game that went beyond pushing buttons, understanding an intriguing story, or simply having fun. It became something far more significant, shaping the way I think, the things I want to do, and provided experiences that are both nostalgic and new at the same time. That game was Super Street Fighter IV, my 2010 Game of the Year.
Because you can never have too many fighting games.
Pinball fans, rejoice! Zen Studios, the makers of the popular Zen Pinball, are at it again. This time, they are providing four new tables based on characters from the Marvel universe. Unlike the recent pinball releases from Zen, this is actually a stand alone title and not downloadable content.
Does the combination of Marvel and Pinball make for a great game or is there simply not enough content to justify the price?
If this trailer for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 doesn’t get you excited, nothing will.
It looks like Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will feature a new playable character and… a younger Heihachi Mishima?
The first Dead Space was a brilliant game that brought fear and anxiety to another level. If the demo is any indication, the sequel is going to be just as good, if not better than the original. Were you expecting otherwise? Probably not.
If you haven’t had a chance to try the demo for yourself yet, we have a gameplay video that shows you just how exhilarating and terrifying Dead Space 2 truly is. Oh, and Isaac goes a bit crazy attacking babies. Hey! They came after him first!
Best update ever? Quite possibly. There is so much good content it’s not even funny. Where do we even begin? Well, PlayStation Plus Subscribers get a bunch of discounts and a game trial for Borderlands and MAG. Not bad, right? It gets better.
If you’re not a PS+ subscriber, don’t worry, there’s still a bunch of games on sale. Sonic 4, Bomberman Ultra, After Burner Climax, Worms 2, and more. It’s craziness!
Listing all of the downloadable games would be pointless, just know that there are 10 NEOGEO classics now available on the PSN, echochrome ii, Prince of Persia; The Two Thrones HD, Top Darts, and Front Mission 3 for the PSone.
Awesome right? Oh, but there’s more! This week is demos galore – Dead Space 2, Mass Effect 2, LittleBigPlanet 2 (notice a trend?), Blokus, and Beat Sketcher. Glorious, isn’t it? This week’s content will definitely last you for quite some time.
After a two month delay, it seems like Sony Online Entertainment is finally ready to ship DC Universe Online to retailers.
nail’d is an arcade racing game that doesn’t take itself too seriously. This is a game with unrealistic physics, crazy track layouts, and extremely fast gameplay. The racing experience is as pure as it can be.
Unfortunately, this results to being nothing more than a shallow racer that overstays its welcome by the time you’re halfway done with it.
Gorgeous visuals, fast gameplay, and a whole lot of awesome. Malicious is one of those must have PSN titles from Japan that deserves to be released worldwide.
Magneto welcomes the cast of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 to die in this new trailer.
Animus Project 2.0 is on the way.
Because you never have too many explosions in a game.
This week’s update is packed with such delicious content. If you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you can now download the DC Universe Online beta. The initial size is deceptively small, weighing in at a meager 117MBs. Don’t let that fool you though, the actual size ends up being 15GBs. It’s definitely worth checking out though.
Additionally, all five episodes of Sam & Max are free to PS+ members, along with Crash Team Racing and Fieldrunners. As usual, there’s a bunch of discounted games as well.
As for everyone else, there’s a bunch of new games in today’s update. Actually, it’s more like a bunch of old games , with titles like Prince of Persia: Warrior Within HD, Galaxy Fight (PSone Import), Prototype (overpriced), and the infamous X-Men Arcade (awesome).
On the DLC front, there’s a free update for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood that adds a new map and gamemode to the online multiplayer. The Force Unleashed II also received a ridiculously cheap bonus mission add-on. Fans of the Legacy of Kain series will be pleased to know that Raziel and Kain have finally been reunited… as a downloadable character pack for Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. It’s not quite a return to Nosgoth, but it’s good enough for now. For the music lovers out there, there’s a bunch of new Rock Band songs featuring Billy Joel.
Oh, and there’s a Pocket Fighter Chun-Li avatar ;P
That’s all for now, X-Chickens! Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha! Welcome to die!
The awkward button layout returns! Yay?
