  • Today is the worst day ever...My 360 went red ring due to the new Mandatory Update today...As far as I know my 360 survived one of the longest periods..My friend had his 3 days before it went red ring...and another friend had to get his de-red ringed 4 times in that same year and two months...so mine had out lived any.. at least in this town.

    It died peaceful...with one port flashing (for those that aren't familiar with the RRoD...one port flashing is the worst...HARDWARE FAILURE) and that black error message..it was terrible... :( My gaming family..those who would understand this loss and have faced things like it..let us have a moment of silence for this "possibly" dead 360 (my thing is..if Mircosoft doesn't fix it... then I'm going strictly Sony...but that was my ONLY next gen system)

    NOT ONLY was that my only next gen system...I have really no other systems to use...I mean..sure I have reg. XBOX and ps2 and stuff..but those aren't near as glorifying now...I've beat all the games i own..so its redundant...AND this computer is a make shift because it got tore up in the mail..so I cant even properly COMPUTER game..:(
  • I would write a formal compare on this game, but its a comparison of a series....In my opinion, The Wheelman is better than the GTA series itself. Many would disagree, but I was never really captivated by anything in the GTA franchise...

    However, Wheelman...Wow..that game has it all...It has stunts, turbo, racing.. killing...and it has 'supermoves' where you can actually spin the car into a 180 and shoot behind you, and where you can slow down things in "FOCUS" mode,  and shoot out tires, and people...its fantastic, not to mention it feels like the cars actually go FAST in this game...

    So this isn't really my review..its just expressing my deep love and additiveness to the Wheelman...in comparison format!!
  • I happen to be the writer of an up and coming web comic called BannedFromServer...but the problem with this..I can't think of any ideas right off hand (partly because I don't get to play many new games, and I would LIKE to keep our stuff current...)

    So if you have any games that perhaps you would like to see a comic about..or about 2 games blending together in a comic..please let me know, ANY help would be GREATLY appreciated...

    Thanks!! :D
  • Well..what more can be said..this is a FANTASTIC GAME....it has it ALL (As a quick disclaimer, this is my opinion..so thats why I wrote it as a blog...so I could scream about it like a fan girl, thank you)

    Fallout 3 is FANTASTIC..it has it ALL!!! Its an FPS...but its as open ended as Oblivion..and has a choice based system (i.e. Good v. Evil) just like Fable...but its represented in Karma...The graphics are visually astounding like BioShock, you really get involved in the post-apocalyptic world.

    This game covers all my wants..a level up system, where stats and certain perks and skills are obtained, an FPS, can be a TPS, about as survival as you can get...getting meager rations of health and ammo through the game...not to mention the radiation obtained from eating certain foods...you can customize your character and guns and armor. I just rented it tonight..and played for 6 hours straight..and the only reason I turned it off now is to let my 360 cool down!!!!

    It can even get down to a ZOMBIE game..your killing people mutated by the nuclear warefare

    Its like, Bioshock, Obilivian, Fable 2, Alone in the dark (In a customization way I suppose...), and I Am Legend rolled up into one kick arse package!
  • Well great news is that I got my Fable II back for those of you reading up on my blog, my "Friend" returned it with no trouble after me and my friend lied and said it was his...but whatever, whatever gets it done.

    Over the break I got battle field: bad company..I'm fairly disappointed in the game, don't get me wrong however..its a fun game, but it could have been dealt with so much better:

    1) They went back to the 100 health system (or whatever you wish to call it) after the innovative heal after a set amount of times..it seems a shame to revert.

    2) The ENEMY AI are masters of hiding, shooting, accuracy, and apparently have super human senses, where as the main character and his company are not very suave at hiding..or any of the things above for that matter...they rely A LOT on the player, where as the player SHOULD be able to rely on them

    3) I haven't played on line..not because i didn't want to..because its more likely to revive dinosaurs that bred with Elvis, than to find an online match...

    The game however IS really fun...the healing infinite healing canister I suppose makes up for the revert to the health system...

    What i REALLY love about this game is the environment was INTERACTIVE!!!!! you blow up walls tear down trees and fences..its great...if more innovative games (such as CoD4 for example) had done more interactive environments instead of just shooting through walls..I wouldn't really EVER need a new FPS..because i'd be to addicted to the game... :D

  • Quick question.  I noticed you double commented, but the comments were 3 hours apart.  It was on this blog.  Any idea how that happened?  Did you come back to the page a little while later, hit back and resubmit the comment accidentally?  I'm on bug watch, so I keep an eye out for these things =)

    Thanks!

    I really hate to betray MK like this, but I had to go with Street Fighter. The first few Mortal Kombat games didn't need 'depth' per se , it was meant just to be a fighting game, so all it really needed was arcade mode. Don't get me wrong I really do love story lines and story modes, I tend to get involved with the characters, its how I work, but at that time I really felt like MK didn't need one.

    Street Fighter was a great game, it posessed SOME SORT of story mode, even though really it was just characters talking their way into a fight... but that doesn't matter.

    The greater difference is it wasn't EASY..in the first few MK games all you really had to do was click 1 button and the other person wouldn't get a chance! Though the fatalities were EXTREMELY hard to figure out on your own, I suppose that was the attempted balance.

    WIth Street Fighter however, you really did require more than a little luck, it required a general since of skill, I mean...you could still haduken your way to victory, but the other person still had a chance.

  • Pokemon Red is better than Pokemon Diamond

    This is a really obvious comparison, and it doesn't just go for the 2 games stated, its for the entire first generation vs. the newest generation.
    I never thought I'd say this but what the pokemon games DIDN'T need was better graphics, that took away the authentic feel of the game, not to mention they need to stop making new pokemon.. I mean...how can you 'catch 'em all' if they keep making more...And the new pokemon names are generic, unoriginal, and lazy..I mean..Half of the time it looks like they put two descriptive words together...
    I feel pretty passionate about this one...because being a little kid when pokemon came out gave me a strong since of pride for the orginials and the game...So maybe I'm biased..but I truely believe the orginals were 10 fold the new ones..(Pretty much past johto) were bad (Though, being as hypocritical as I am..I'm playing Pokemon Diamond currently..just because DS doesn't read past advance..and I want to play a pokemon game..so I'm not TOO picky right now :D)

    Bioshock was truly one of the most epic survival games I've played, everything about it screamed different, the depth of the storyline, and the setting, an underwater utopia set in the 50's,c'mon, who thinks of that? The random mini-games (for hacking and such) really kept you entertained as well , the game play, giving you a series of physical enhancements, despite the fact that fire and electricity are common, really had different ideas as well, and, though this isn't as innovative, I loved how your choice to save or kill the little sisters affected the end.

    F.E.A.R was just another attempted pop up scare in my opinion, giving pretty gruesome depections to try to envoke fear, when in reality the game wasn't near as worth the hype of how scary it was. I love gruesome, but I don't like how it tried to use that as really the only scare tactic in the game. In my opinion the storyline was a bit etchy to follow as well, and not nearly as entrancing enviroment wise as Bioshock, it all felt like most shooters, through warehouses and things like that. The game play was pretty bland, not really appealing to anything different than normal shooter games.

    Even though Bioshock is a single player game, and I couldn't see it as anything else, could play it over and over, for hours on end.

    Call of Duty 4 was the first game that Infinity ward had published since selling it to Treyarch for CoD3, and I have to say, they did a great job at the come back, not only did the break the expectations of war games to be about World War 2, they broke the bounds that Treyarch had done with Call of Duty 1-3 and World at War.
    The game play on both is very similar, but what really catches my eye about CoD4 is the modern day setting, not to mention it was the first of the series to be rated M finally having enough captivation and realism to deserve that title. I also like the maps and online multiplayer.
    Call of Duty 4 began many things, such as the shooting through walls, and the perks and leveling system.
    However, don't get me wrong, World at War is fun, especially the added feature of blowing people apart and getting to see it happen, certainly making it more graphic.
