Well its been a while since I posted a blog(1.5 YEARS!!), but Mr.Dixon's little blog has inspired me to start up again whenever I have time to post. In the time I was gone I got a PC together and started the glory of PC gaming. I also fixed my PSP screen and have played a ton on that.
I decided that I would just start back with what games I have been playing recently. Hope you all enjoy.
Well what can I say, this game is amazing. So much variety in heroes, items, and all kinds of stuff. With the game still in beta I have somehow accumulated more time in it than I have played TF2. Shits Addicting.
Dota 2 is a game about teamwork, and when I mean teamwork I mean alot of it. If 1 member of your team does not want to listen and gets his/her self killed it can ruin your teams chances of winning. On the other hand if you and your team are getting your asses kicked with no win in sight a little team work can turn the game around big time.
The community of the game is a little hit and miss. If you are a new player there are some people who will try to help you out with the game as long as you actually tell them you are new. There are also the kind of people that will call good game after a person on the opposite team gets 2 kills, then go to all chat and blame their teammates even after they have done nothing to help the team themselves. For these people valve has added in a report system and will tell you upon starting Dota 2 if the person you reported has been banned.Because of this, it is best that you play with friends instead of public matchmaking. Knowing your teammates will help a lot during hero selection.
For a game with a high skill barrier if you take the time to learn you can play the game reasonably well. When I started I was the guy on the team that had 15 deaths and 0 kills but now I play games like this.
For refrence I am the Lich named Kirby
All in all for a game still in beta, Dota 2 is shaping up to be great.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Starting this game I did not know what to expect. I never played the original “Deus Ex” and my only experience with a shooter rpg was Fallout New Vegas.
Within the first mission I was blown away with how open the game allows you to play. There are so many ways to get around and kill enemies, or outright not kill em at all. Picture this; a guy is about 15 feet away from you with a gun that might instagib you. There is a ladder on the wall to the left you can climb and get around and kill him with ease, but on the ground there is also a box you can throw to grab his attention to a certain spot and walk past, and lastly in your hand there is a flashbang that you can throw over cover to stun him and then shoot the explosive barrels to finish him off.
I am personally playing as a stealth killing machine and its awesome for all parts minus the boss fights that were developed by an outside team. This games boss fights are the one thing that keeps me from wanting to finish a story mission.
All in all, Deus Ex is well worth your time if you are in the mood for a fun game.
The image above shows all things good in the game solely with the chat
THIS GAME IS THE BOMB.
YOU GET TO NUKE YOUR FRIENDS AND SURROUNDING CONTINENTS, MAKE FRIENDS WITH PEOPLE YOU AGREE TO NOT NUKE UNTIL SOMEONE DECIDES TO DICK YOU OVER.
Defcon being a RTS is surprisingly easy to get into which got me hooked. Games don’t really last forever and the game has a awesome layer of risk reward with the placing of silos, ships and making alliances with fellow players.
Every Friday/Saturday the good people down in Steamtoid play the game as a tradition in the spirit of friends and good old fashioned nuking.
Besides PC gaming I still play a lot on my handhelds.
Monster Hunter series
This game. THIS GAME. Imagine living in a world of badass where you kill stuff only to craft the leftovers into awesome armor and weapons to kill more powerful stuff. Rinse, repeat and you have Monster Hunter.
Its more of a action game than RPG, but there are a ton of stats involved with resistances and power boosts. The game is also if you are not used to it, kinda hard to get into. I mean in Freedom Unite (which was the first game I played,) the third quest had you go collect these monster tongue things that were easy to get. But out of nowhere a motherfucking Tigrex comes out and wrecks everything. At this point in the game unless you have fought one before and can dodge every single hit, this thing will one shot you. The only thing you can do is run. Later in game you have a quest with the one goal of killing the Tigrex. The fight will still be hard but now you actually stand a chance.
Moments like that are why I like Monster Hunter.
I have also been playing Rhythm Heaven Fever on the Wii but I think that it deserves a blog to itself one of these days. read
