I think thats it , feel free to say anything that I've missed anything that I should play. Have your say and tell me what to play .
To kick things off Im going to explain this 'From Afar' series I'm doing. Basically instead of actually playing the game I will be watching someone play it , most of the time it will be my brother other times it may be a friend. Then I eventually get round to playing it my self seeing if it's better than it looks (or worse).
Lets start :Bioshizzle 2* a FPS adventure game for PC(reviewed),xbox 360 , PS3.
I have played the first Bioshizzle* and thought it was a competent "shooter" with small horror elements and a captivating story it was about a jazzed up smack-head who killed the nasty jazzed up smack-heads , hilarity ensues when ^SPOILER ALERT FOR BIOSHIZZLE* ONE^ an irish guys family like dies and then turns out he isnt irish and is actually an buisness american type with giant muscles , then you kill him.
Anyhoo Bioshizzle* 2. The game starts out with you Lawrence Fishburn being told that you should shoot yourself so you do , then you lose your little sister (except from she's not little and human(ATLEAST I THINK FUCK OFF IF IM WRONG)).Then you go on an epic journey through Rapture a place where jazzed up smack-heads try to kill you and sometimes succeed . Combat looks like it has been improved by allowing you Lawrence Fishburn to hold both a gun and you're hand up like your a primary school kid so you can plaz him up and shoot him down . Thats going on a plaque.
Its visually identical to Bioshizzle *1 . Actually I cant tell because I played Bioshizzle* on Xbox 360 and Bioshizzle 2 on PC so they look similar. The atmosphere has the same feel and the nasty jazzed up smack-heads are identical and act the same as they did in the 1st uno.
From the looks of it Bioshizzle* 2 has changed the hacking minigame AND BY GOLLY-FUCKING-GOD IT LOOKS WAAAYYY BETTER . A ticker goes from side to side and you press a button (SHUT UP ,I WASNT PLAYING) when it goes over a green part of the box thing , if you hit the blue you get a bonus so hip-hip hoo-friggin-way.
I think this game deserves 8/10†
From the looks of it anyway.
Stay tuned for part 2 when I actually play the game , hopefully it will be done in under 3 days as tommorow I go back to school so my productivity will be held back slightly oh well pip-pip cheerio good bye for now:D
* For anyone that watches Storm Dains series of "Adventures" in his series GISHAOTYA he called bioshock ,Bioshizzle so yeah ,understood ???
FarCry 2 , a game set in africa . A continent of war. Well in Farcry's case .
Disease: In Farcry 2 you are burdened by malaria A REAL LIFE PROBLEM *ahem* in which the player gets fatigued and cannot run or jump for a prolonged time , you as the player also have to get pills to keep the malaria at bay (slightly anyway) in which you deliver stuff to people with pills.
By now you're probably getting bored and are going to the toilet but I'm going to start talking 'bout GUNS AND VIOLENCE AND WAR , the good stuff.
Crime: Farcry 2 is set in Africa where between malitia and gangs has allways been a real life problem for people in Africa. My mum and dad lived in South Africa where gun crime, gang wars ,murder,rape and virtually any crime you can think of happened , my dad's stereo in his car was nicked with the wind shield off of its hinges , my mum and dad had to hide in a cupboard many a time due to gun men pondering the street , so Im not exactly an expert in Africa but I have an extremely rough idea of what it was and is like. Back to the game , two governement type factions both with the same idea of killing and thriving ( probably the worst ever explanation of anything EVER) you're tasked with the choice of joining one or you can be with both.
Combat: Farcry 2 a shooter at heart (PISS OFF IT IS) has a very good selection of weapons all quite prone to jamming (realism) and not quite accurate , pretty realistic if you ask me :D. When you're health gets lowered a good amount you can "heal" yourself , this is basically picking a bullet out of a limb or poking it out with a finger . I'm no expert on bullet wounds but its pretty realistic that you take it out with a knife or a screwdriver or whatever , also syrettes can be used to heal your character.
Another game that tries realism is Operation Flashpoint , a realistic modern war shooter where one bullet deaths are often I both love and hate this due to dieing because you're retarded team mates cant shoot targets more than 2 feet infront of them .
My final verdict . Realism , good in small doses... LIKE OPIUM
First things second never get BT total broad band internet especially if you have more than 3 people who use the internet alot. They say its unlimited but its more like a gigabyte limit a month. IT SUCKS .
3rd thing : IM IN THE BATTLEFIELD 3 ALPHA BETA .But as mentioned up tharr^^ my internets being as slow as road works its gonna take 31 hours to download also origin isnt that bad its basically EA download manager and it looks like it should be on a mac.
I got called a hipster in a bookshop today , I suppose I was wearing my Jimi Hendrix t-shirt and I was buying Cowboys and Aliens , Walking dead vol.3 and a banksy book.He looked fairly hipster him selfif I was being honest and also I dont think that saying "Wow you seem like a hipster" is good customer service.
Hey pokemanzz. This is what Im going to talk about the most as I just bought Pokemon Black today.
Pokemon ,where to start maybe with me saying about my first time. well ok I was young I had a gameboy , I bought leaf green got about 20 pokemon then the cartridge vanished into existence , which brings me to today. I was in game £30 and Game Reward Card in hand walked up to the DS section grabbed a copy and reg is my uncle so he touched me then I played Pokemon Black for about 3 hrs .B-B-B-BREAKDOWN TIMMEE!!!
Sound: the sound design in pokemon is chirpy but very accented or some other word like that . The musics a very good fit and most of the sounds hasnt really changed since soul silver , how would I know I only played it for like 40 mins . All in all 8/10
Graphics: A great bit of the graphics have been upgraded but it still keeps that "2D sprites with 3D -ish buildings" type thingey the sprites feel a bit more updated and so does the animation so 9/10
Story: Not much to say here other than EVIL TEAM HATE NEWBS TAKES POKEMANZZ OF KIDS AND EATS SHIT 6/10
Last but definitely not least
Gameplay: Turn based RPG -'em ups are my favourite genre so dont hate on teh bias. Battles flow smoothly . Its fun,addictive ,fun and enjoyable. Abit hard in places and some pokemon will have you ripping your eyeballs out then putting them back in BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO DEFEAT YOURE OWN FUCKING BEST FRIEND D8< then getting killed then put back to a poke center and URGH FUCK YOU CHEREN (Or whatever thou name shalt be) ehrm 9/10
Pokemon :Weird, quirky and resemblent of real life beings . Some are just fucking creepy though theres one thats basically a human face on a smooth blue tape worm , theres one thats basically a rock covered vagina . THERES ALSO ONE THAT IS AN ELECTRIC FUCKING UNICORN AND HE IS A SEXY BEAST. So yesh 9/10
Over all as a pokemon lover 9/10 as some one who has never played pokemon before 8/10 and for me 9/10 (even though it doesnt add up) so yeah bye people be sure to hate if you want and also boobs and stuff
Its 01:12 in the morning and I'm bored , so I'm writing this as a question to anybody and everybody , even though like 2 people will read this.
The other day I was sitting on the couch of my living room playing Cave Story on wii and my dad walked in and said " Why do you even like gaming"
I paused for about 10 seconds then said "It's fun and I dont have to be around people".
He stared at me for what felt like an eternity then left.
I felt my answer was wrong though, I spent many an hour infront of a tv with a couple of other friends playing Perfect Dark , Goldeneye and mario kart when I played it on a regular basis. It's not that I don't have to be social it's that It's an escape from people . You dont have to listen to people going on about how they just broke up with there girlfriend or there grandads having catarac surgery also I dont have to cater to other people , the food and the drink is all mine and if you're asking" has he allways been this socially retarded" , yes actually since I was about 9 , I wasnt the cool kid who'd go out and play football ( I cant play sports for the life of me ) or go out and drink with the big boys.I would stay in my house and play through Ocarina of Time for the fifteenth time .
So now it goes out to you , why do you game , or you could just tell me that I've spelt something wrong or tell me that I'm an angry bastard .
So whats going to be my first topic?? well obviously (Seriously Not That Obvious)* itís going to be the news that mobile developer Brian Meehan from Sourcebits said: ďThe world is changing and fast. Angry Birds is the worldís new Mario Bros. My kids will never own a DS or PSP. They have everything via smart phones and tablets. When I travel, I love to walk from the back of the plane to the front and see what people are doing on their devices. Not surprisingly, itís mostly games. I particularly see a lot of Angry Birds on iPhones and iPads. Not just one or two, but ten to 15.Ē Okay so first my argument. Super Mario Bros. (The NES original) was a new fresh new experience for children and adults in the 80ís the vibrant graphics were amazing at the time it provided hours of entertainment where as Angry Birds is just a mobile game which people of all ages play but my main argument is that angry birds isnít an original idea , This is that big of a deal seeing as the modern grey FPS era of gaming has sunk in to every 8-17 year olds brain (I am in this bracket but do not play that much FPS games) Angry Birds is a clone of Crush the castle a flash game that has a good following .But even more I think that Super Mario Bros. was more of an original than Angry birds is to this day . My agreement on the subject is that Angry Birds has a very big following for 5 year olds and 40 year old mothers everywhere I have the game and can agree that it is a good game. But me the Hardcore Gamer that I am itís just WAAAAYYYY too casual for me (I sound like an idiot now donít I) itís just not my thing I prefer the platforming of Mario to the murdering of pigs In angry birds.
Well thatís me finished but yeah I sorta left that hanging on a thread didnít I
Its old I know just bare with meh as I have more of the same rubbish I produce for the extremely bored person who's actually going to look at this
