So I Finally Completed the Trifecta


Egads men!

Now, before you go jumping on me screaming tribal chants and Anne Rice quotes, let me explain. I think it's a nice system. I can see getting one for myself for blu-rays and some of the games. I...I just don't know, I don't love it like I did the PS2 or PSX. It's not blowing my mind like the other systems did. Maybe it's because I kept expecting it to be so much cleaner or crisper, or whatever descripting term you'd like to use, but it just isn't blowing me away. Hell, maybe I fed into the fanboy hype before playing it. Bottom line is that it just isn't really doing anything special for me except plays PS3 games and has a funky controller. Seriously, what the fuck is up with the L2 and R2 buttons?

That being said, MGS4 is the best damn game I've played in a long time. And I HATE being stealthy. It's why I've never gotten into the Splinter Cell series, and why I couldn't get into MGS3. I just loathe waiting in my games. Standing, or lying, or crouching, waiting, watching, waiting, going, getting shot, having to start back over. That's what I do in stealth games. Until this one.

I will admit that this blows pretty much everything else away from a looks perspective, and also a story perspective. I thought I'd be pulled away from the game by the long cut-scenes, but they've actually put me in a place where I'm paying more attention due to the flashbacks, perspective changes, and camera switching. Now I mentioned my dislike of waiting earlier, but when I play this I don't mind the fact that I have to stand (or sit or lie) around. This gorgeous eye candy all around, having multiple access points, and the background action constant is really a pleasure. I can't wait to finish it so I can discuss it, and replay it again.

The other games I've touched were Ratchet and Clank and Heavenly Sword. Both game look fantastic, but, I don't know, after playing for about twenty minutes I wanted to go back to my new save on Mass Effect, which is still friggin' awesome btw. Maybe I wasn't in the mood for a platformer or a hack'n'slash though, and I'm willing to go back and play through them to see if it was just the initial impression or not.

So don't take this as a Sony bash-a-thon. It's just not what I was expecting. I'm sure if I take some time and get some more games and hop on the interwebs I'll find more fun stuff, I'm just not there right yet. I do love my xbox, but I also still like my Wii, which is becoming rarer and rarer these days. Then again, maybe that's due to me getting the internet hooked up to the Wii and discovering that holy shit there's old vidja games on there. Anyway:

tl;dr Like the ps3 alright, but love the MGS4.

For Wiisucks:
Hi! My name is Jack Klassen.! I'm a completely ordinary teenage boy from San Diego, California. My interests include soccer, surfing, writing poetry, and luge. I am homeschooled by my father who fought in the Korean War and was exposed to nerve gas. He is kind of crazy but I still love him. We got the Internet two years ago and I started making new friends on Yahoo! messenger. Surprisingly, most of these new friends were older men who wanted to have illegal, underage sex with me. Needless to say, I got a boner like a rocketship and cybersex quickly became my favorite thing in the entire world. Wait, did I say boner like a rocketship? I meant my vagina got as wet as Lake Titicaca. I started saving all of the hot chat sessions I was having with the Pakistanis, lesbians, child molesters and other monsters who were instant messaging me all day and all night, and I decided to put them up here on this website so you can see exactly how disgusting the entire human race is. Since then, I have been in a waterskiing accident that mangled my genitals beyond repair, been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, brain cancer, and Crohn's disease, learned to speak Urdu and French, covered my naked body in superglue, went to French lesbian camp, made a Hindu eat a roast beef sandwich out of my vagina, and ruined perfectly good cybersex for at least one hundred people.
