Why is Resident Evil 4 a stupid crap? (By me)

I'm sure most of you will disagree with me... what the fuck! I'm sure most of you are going to flame me because of my next words, but I think RE4 is one of the most overrated games ever! Let's explore a bit in the game:

- Lion is the brand new President's daughter bodyguard (What the fuck!?)
- The President's daughter has been kidnapped by a spanish sect (How the fuck!?)
- Lion go by himself to a lost spanish town in the middle of... nothing (Ok, he has guts)
- The Spanish villagers don't speak spanish, they speak mexican... (Oh, crap!)
- The Spanish mexian speakers villagers are slow, fearless and dumb (yeah, that's the way we are)



- There is a weird guy following you wherever you go who sells you weapons (it's also common in Spain)
- The money is on "pesetas" of course (What is euro?)
- There is a big bearded guy who can kill you a few times, but he rather injects you (smart guy indeed)
- Ada Wongs is there too... emmm... this chick loves problems
- Did I say that she is dressed in a one piece dress?



- Stupid villagers are stupid, but they can plant bombs (in Spain everybody knows)
- Oh! The stupid villagers can take more than five gunshots (yeah, as you probably guess, spanish guys are tough)
- Well, I only played a few hours so I cannot say much more than that, but you get my point... and it's a shame because I loved Resident Evil 1 and 2.



By the way, I know my english sucks, blablabla...   read

I'm doing it again

Yeah, I'm beating Final Fantasy VII again. This time with the initial weapon of each character, this way is a little more challenging and amusing. I recommend this challenge to everyone, is not very difficult and is funnier.
I don't know why I don't get tired of this game. I've been playing it once per year since it was released and I still enjoy each one of my games. That is the reason I think FFVII is the best game I ever played... because it's the only one that keeps me playing for ten years.



ALSO: Advent Children, Last Order and Dirge of Cerberus are pure crap. And what annoys me the most is that now, when you search for "Final Fantasy" you get a bunch of FF:AC and FF:DC results and a few real FFVII ones... disgusting.

ALSO 2: I'm in Holland again, that's because I'm writing again.   read

Sanitarium, short review

Hello everyone, I'm very busy these days because of the chritmas stuff and a few video games I had on the library waiting for me. One of these games was Sanitarium and since I've always read good things about it I decided to play it first... and it was a very good decision.



Old School adventure flavour, gore and scary elements, serious and dark plot and excelent 2D graphics. These are some of the things you are going to find in Sanitarium. I don't know what do you think, but in my opinion all these things I mentioned are just perfect for a good adventure. Purple talking tentacles and three headed monkeys too... but that is another topic.
Also, the game is not too long, which is good, because as I've said I don't have much time (I hate these games so damn long that you end totally bored of them).

I'm not going to tell you nothing about the plot because is one of the most interesting things in the game. But I'm going to give you an advice: play it. Well, I'm going to give you two advices: if you play it on Windows XP you should disable your DirectDraw option, otherwise the game will frequently crash.



Conclusion: Play it!

You will like it:
- If you like adventures
- If you like "dark" games
- If you like good games

You will dislike it:
- If you are a graphic whore
- If you don't like adventures games
- If you hate because of my grammar

PS: Sorry for the crappy grammar. I try my best. I'm studying english on my own because in the school I've learned a shit. Peace.   read

2007 Mod of the Year Awards

Now is time to vote the best mod of the year: here

At first (a few years ago) I was very skeptical about mods using, but when I tried my first Baldur's Gate mod a new world opened in front of my eyes. New characters, new items, new enemies, new stories... whatever I wanted. Then I tried Civilization and Morrowind mods and the experience was the same: f*cking great. So I do not know if you usually use mods in your games, but if you don't, you should at least take a look at the link above and taste one or two of them.


This is really odd...

By the way, if you are one of these Baldur's Gate freaks who still plays the game trying every good mod released... you are insane, like me.

Well guys, gotta go. I have to buy christmas gifts for me :)

My experience with "Virtual PC"

Yeah! It works! That's a good sumarize of my experience, but since I don't like to suck I'm gonna explain in which way it works to me.

First, the OS installation is pretty easy. In my case I installed my old Windows 98 and the only thing I did was: use a bootable win98 disk, do two simple steps and install Windows. Pretty easy.



Second, once you have done the OS installation you just have... another PC running in a window. And for me, that I love to play old games is perfect. I tried a few of my old games that do not run on Win XP and they look perfect on the Virtual PC.

Third, I'm on Spain for Christmas, YAY!!! So probably I will not write everyday like I was doing before. Yeah well... what a problem eh?

OK, yes, is a short post but I have a beautiful girl friend on her way to my home, soooo... See you.   read

Phoenix Wright 2, short review and conclusion

Yeah! I've finished the game today and now I'm going to start with the third one. But before that, I want to share my opinions about the game with you (I'm soooo generous). Also, I'm leaving tomorrow morning to my hometown (Málaga, Spain), as some of you already know I'm studying in Holland for a time and I'm coming back for Christmas. So in the six hours travel I will have a loooot of time to burn my Nintendo DS. Life telling aside, let's start with the short review:

Is a little worse than the first one. But if you liked the first one you will like it. That's all.

You will like it:
- If you like Phoenix Wright
- If you like weird haired attorneys
- If you like Mia's breast

You will dislike it:
- If you don't like Phoenix Wright
- If you don't like to rise objections
- If you like vegetables more than ice cream

Conclusion:

Phoenix Wright 2 is more of the same and worse that the first one... But it's OK, is a good game after all. Also, Pearl is SOOO CUTE!!

Draglade, first impression

Draglade, Draglade, Draglade. Beyond this weird and non-attracting name there is actually a weird and attracting game... at least in the first hours of game play.

What is so odd in this Draglade game?
Well, the game is a fighting/role playing mixture that seems cool as far as I played. This quirky combat system is based in two main things: the use of musical combos, in which you should press the attack buttons with certain rhythm. And the use of "bullets", which are pretty much like magic, in fact you can do fire balls, power boosts or healing spells with this "bullets". Of course you can also hit your opponent with the tipycal low and hard strikes... but who want to just hit yout opponent when you can kill it musically?



And the other important things?
The plot of Draglade is... mmm... how can I say this? Not very original. In fact you are the tipical pricky hair boy who wants to be the best ______ (insert job) and must fight against ________ (insert enemy name) to fulfill his sake. But, hey! Maybe it will improve... (don't think so). In the other hand, graphics and Sound are just OK. It is not a innovation in any field but looks and sounds cool.



And... that's all for the moment. I'll tell you more when I play more.   read

Do you know that guy?



Or maybe this one?



Yeah, I'm sure you can recognize at least this last one. But could you tell the name of one of them? Well... I can. The first one is Gorgon, the young and mighty boy who pulled down a entire empire and then left with his best friend and his sister. And the second one is Kyuzo Kakihara, also know as Adell, a demi-fiend who beat Lucifer itself and create a demon world which he ruled on his own.

They, as many other unnamed video game characters, have as many names as players of the own game. And maybe is that what make them so special. I don't know what do you think about, but the characters I enjoyed the most are what I christen myself. I mean, Baldur's Gate hero, Diablo hero, SMT: Nocturne hero, Suikoden heroes... you give them a name and you play the whole game with them. It's a really good experience!

What about you, do you feel special empathy for these characters? Or maybe they are just another guys that even do not have names? If you have saved the Sword Coast and kicked Sarevok ass, I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.   read

Warhammer 40k: SC (NDS version), first impression

Mmmmm... what we got here... a warhammer 40k game for my little, cute Nintendo DS... sounds great, isn't? Maybe yes, but maybe not.



First of all I've to say that I have only played six stages, but since the game only have 13 I can say I'm almost in the middle of the game. The important thing is that in these six stages I could see what is good and what is not. Turn based strategy, warhammer 40k universe, mechanic swords, ultramarines... and no much more, are the good things. On the other side we have graphics that are not as bad as I've read in other sites, very annoying and usual slowdowns and a useless stylus gameplay. So for me, at this moment, the game is average (being generous)... let's see what happen in a few more stages.



I expected a lot of this game. Maybe my letdown is because of that. Maybe not and the game is average at best (or "at beast average", I really don't know the order, excuse me for my english ladies).   read

Do you remember...

Time commando

Yeah, that game released 11 years ago by the extinct Adeline. You know, the game in which you take the role of a futuristic scientist who gets trapped in the flow of time and visits many phases of history. Yeah! This exact game.



It was 10 years ago and I still can remember almost all the scenarios you visit in the game. The prehistory, roman empire, feudal Japan, medieval europe, conqueror's time, far west, modern war and the future... I'm sure I forgot one or two, but anyway, I remember a lot of the different weapons you could use in each time, I remember the excelents graphics for the date and of course, the final battle with that... "thing". What do all these memories mean? One thing, this game rocks and is for sure one of the games I most enjoyed in my life.



So if you have played Time Commando I invite you to remember it. And if you have never played it... well... I don't think is the kind of game everybody could enjoy now (because all the graphical matters I don't care at all) but if you have the chance to give it a try, don't doubt it.

Tit Bless the games that grow with me.   read

Luminous Arc, short review

Easy strategy, light role playing, cute anime characters, god fightings, a bit of tits... As you can imagine is impossible to get a bad game with all these ingredients, and you imagine well, Luminous Arc is not a bad game. In fact, I would say it's even a good one!


Go, Theo, go, kill this cerberus!

But let's explain why the mixture of all those elements make a good a game:
The strategy and role playing mix it shows off is the old school formula we saw years ago on titles like Vandal Hearts or FF: Tactics. And is good this way!
The cute anime characters and his funny histories make the predictable plot a good scenario to see what happen with all of them and enjoy their situations.
And of course, the great battles and the witches tits do the rest.


Nice dress miss titties

The conclusion: Luminous Arc is a very enjoyable game that focus in the most important side of gaming: the fun.

You will like it:
- If you like SRPGs
- If you like big anime tits
- If you like turn based killing sprees

You will dislike it:
- If you are too hardcore to wait an enemy turn to attack
- If you don't like big anime tits
- If you like to scary people with a squirrel mask
- If you don't like killing the same five kind of enemies (with different colours) again and again   read
