Hold on to your hats folks, here we go again with another review of a great PSN title. Let me start off by saying that this was a real treat to play. Much like my last review, it seems like lately I’ve had the privilege to review some top notch PSN titles, and this one is no exception. Dungeon Defenders is an interesting mix of tower defense and RPG elements, and it mixes them well. Dungeon Defenders does a great job of balancing these two genres.
The story focuses around 4 young kids learning their craft, as wizards, warriors, knights and rangers. One day their parents leave them alone in their castle, and as you know, kids will be kids. Chaos ensues and the children unleash a great evil into the world. They are now forced to clean up the mess before their parents return and are undoubtably grounded. Huh? Kinda sounds like when I was a child.
So the results are in, after a few extra days of letting people get in entries but none were submitted, we decided to change things up and I went ahead and chose the winner…..*DRUMROLL*
And the winner is…..
Cheeto, his …
Hey everyone, Baba Booey here with yet another review of one awesome game. So let me start off a tad bit different than usual. Let’s take a trip to the past, mid 1980’s. I know for some of you that may be reading this, you weren’t even a thought at that time, but for the rest of us, we can remember a time when platforming games where king. That’s all we played; the NES did platform games so well; Mega Man, Contra, and Castlevania to name a few. As the years went on, they became watered down and mundane without innovation, without soul or substance, and then the platform genre started to die as games became more advanced and we soon forgot about the genre that dominated the game scene…Until now!!
Now I know what you are saying, “But Baba we have some great platformers already, what about Little Big Planet?” Well yes I can understand that, but understand games like Little Big Planet have large development budgets, the PSN Minis don’t count, and I have yet to play a decent PSN platformer title, but please take into account that this is my opinion. So enough of the blah blah, why don’t we get into why this game is so great.
Greetings sports fans!! You know, I have been contributing my writings and opinions for almost a year now, and I’ve noticed one thing…I can’t remember seeing a review done on a sports game, let alone a hockey game. So here we go, here it is, lets drop the puck and get into some hockey action. Here is my review on NHL 12, EA’s latest addition to one of the most successful sports franchises that stretches the span of 20 years… Yes, you read that right, EA’s first game in the ‘NHL’ series was NHL Hockey back in 1991; boy that takes me back. Most people, however, most recognize the series for its 1994 masterpiece, as it defined the genre and set the bar for future hockey games to come. Even still to this day, EA hockey games still have the option to use the ’94 control scheme’.
It takes a special breed of gamer to purchase sports games like the NHL series, or the NFL series, simply because there are few, if any, changes made from year to year aside from roster updates, uniforms, and gameplay fixes. This year, however, EA took into account all the feedback from last years game, good and bad, and really tried to present us with a polished, fresh, and invigorated game. Did they accomplish this task? Did EA create another NHL ’94? Do we have hockey gold? Or did they drop the ball and completely miss the mark? Well, read on and find out!
Developed by Codemasters, Operation Flashpoint: Red River is a FPS military ‘simulation’. They were kind enough to send us a copy for review, and I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to give this game a once over. I can say, I’m glad that I had the chance to play this! So on to the review.
So lets start start at one of the coolest intro videos I have seen in a long time, it’s gritty, it’s humorous, and its got some facts in there about past issues, conflicts, and political unrest. They put quite a spin on it, the intro really had me hooked and I then became invested in the story. It has a certain style, to which I can’t name, but there are commercials that follow the same style.
Cruising the interwebs, I came across the gameplay trailer for Rain, Mortal Kombat’s upcoming DLC fighter. Rain is a fighter from Mortal Kombat 3, and is being brought into the new age of fighting. Like his name would suggest, his …
Lock and load, come get some!!!! Aliens have stolen all the hot chicks, particularly Duke’s twin playthings….Oh and they drank his beer, now its time to kick some ass.
Sadly this game with all its major hype released to some poor reviews, I think it got only one or two favorable reviews, but the rest were..well dismal. This caused 2K Games’ PR firm, The Redner Group, to lash out at the gaming press on their twitter account that caused 2K to drop the firm due to the comments made, which threatened to withhold future review titles to the press. Yikes!
But on to the goods, the game! So as I mentioned, this game was released to some very abysmal review scores, and has been the butt of many jokes and subject to some major ridicule. The game picks up 12 years after the events of Duke Nukem 3D, which have made him world famous and the object of much desire! The game starts out in a kind of tutorial mode where you get oriented with the game controls and a few weapons….Now I’m going to drop a bit of a spoiler here, well it’s not really a spoiler, more of a heads up, you are in a locker room and you start the game by urinating (yes I’m serious) after exploring the room there are bathroom stalls, open one of these and you can grab a chocolate log out of the toilet for a trophy…yes you grab poop and get a trophy. For some people this will set the tone for the rest of the game.
So after getting home from a night shift, I was doing some searching trying to stay informed as a gamer. Well I came across a little diddy from the Wall Street Journal of all sources, they reported today that Activision-Blizzard announced the new Call of Duty will feature a pay service called Call of Duty Elite. Reportedly the service will include added content such as map packs, and extra content that has yet to be announced, now don’t fret, the fee isn’t required to play multiplayer.
