Is inFAMOUS 2 the next Uncharted 2?

By: goukijones Feb 28, 2011 | 1917 Views | 11 Comments

For reasons unknown inFAMOUS 2 is giving me goose bumps. I did not like inFAMOUS, but the more and more I see of this sequel the more I want to play it.

I'm not usually one to talk up sequels, with some of my favorite games being "dumb down" recently. Bioshock for example was one man against the house of Big Daddys. You had a gun in one hand and the plasmids in the other -you couldn't use both at the same time- you had to strategically play the field. In Bioshock 2, you were a Big Daddy and you could use two weapons at the same time. The hacking? I can't believe they changed the hacking in Bioshock 2, that mini-pipe-flow-game was a solid game in it's own. I really missed that. Fable is another series that seemed to have taken a serious down turn with it's most recent sequel. Although a little more deep in some areas, I did not enjoy Fable III as much as Fable II. Who takes headshots out of their game? Why were the jobs switched from a meter game to a guitar hero esque venture? I didn't do any of the jobs in Fable III.

Then we have the exclusive Sony sequels and they seem to have the opposite effect on me. Uncharted I played, but couldn't get into. I found the controls clunky and the overall experience of the game uninteresting. Uncharted 2 however, changed all that for me and I will tell you it is the best game on PS3. If you haven't played Uncharted 2 and you own a PS3, you are totally missing out on an excellent gaming experience.

When I first saw that amazing gameplay trailer for inFAMOUS 2, I watched it a until my eyes bled giant blue tornados. The on-screen action and effects and damage and chaos, looked amazing. My pants are tingling just thinking about it now. I really want to get my hands on inFAMOUS 2 ASAP. Finally at CES 2011 I got to play inFAMOUS 2 and it was the same demo from the previously released video, which I had seen plenty. I railed that demo in record time, finished it before the Jimmy in the Sony booth got through his little speech about the demo.

Now we have the Duality trailer for inFAMOUS 2 which was just premiered on GT.TV over the weekend and I must say this game continues to impress me. Very clever trailer with the Angel and Devil on the shoulder type theme. Finally showing off the good and evil look for the game. Cole's face seems to take a little damage ala Commander Shepard and he even says that he can't even recognize himself anymore. Obviously the evil route there. Here check out it, it's pretty slick.

Everything is looking like inFAMOUS 2 is going to kick ass over inFAMOUS and that's a good thing for all of us gamers. One downside to all of the recent inFAMOUS 2 news is the game will be released on June 7th, the very same day E3 2011 will begin and the internet will be getting trolled to death with other video game news. My take has always been, games that come out on or around the same days of E3, seem to get over shadowed by news and excitement from from the big show. So good luck to inFAMOUS 2 there.

Also if you didn't know, inFAMOUS 2 continues the new streak in gaming to have an over the top and most, most ridiculous Collector's Edition. The "Hero Edition" comes with a statue, a backpack, tons of other goodies, some exclusive DLC and of course the game. ZOMG.

Uncharted 2 Review

By: gouki0521 Feb 7, 2011 | 393 Views | 11 Comments

I didn't like Uncharted 2, and here's why.

I have a PS3 and not many games for it. I heard Uncharted 2 had pretty good critical reception, so I figured "if a lot of other people like it, maybe I will like it too!". I ended up getting Uncharted 2, and I got really bored of it.

 

First off, I never really found the Indiana Jones movies that entertaining. I mean, the concept of them is pretty entertaining but I don't like the actual movies very much. This game is sort of like Indiana Jones. Well, it's also mixed with National Treasure (a movie I like), but doesn't have that same heart warming Nick Cage feel.

 

This game is said to be like Tomb Raider. I wouldn't necessarily know since I've never played a Tomb Raider for more than 10 minutes, but Nathan is far less attractive to me than Lara.

 

However, the hot girl of this game, Chloe Frazer, is super hot. I mean, damn. I don't think I've ever found a video game character more appealing. And that voice too. And that British accent. And that body. And that attitude. Mmm. yeskissheartcool

 

Anyways, after "playing with the sixaxis function", the gameplay comes in. It's a hide-behind-coverfire-throw-grenades-or-melee-them kind of game with "platforming". The reason platforming is in quotes is that it's not true platforming. True platforming needs timing, precision, caution, and fluidity. Uncharted 2 has choose-a-direction+jump and Drake does everything by himself. The only real challenge with the platforming is figuring out which crumbled rock you can and can't jump on, but if you spin the analog and mash jump, he'll find it for you.

 

After long platforming segments, you get to the combat. The combat is almost like WW1 trench warfare. You just sit there and wait and shoot millions of bad guys. There are just so many guys! It's not like the game even promotes stealthiness either.

 

So you do an hour of mind numbing combat and half an hour of fake platforming, and it repeats.

 

However, the graphics, voice acting, and presentation for this game are really great. It really does feel like a movie, and some of the gameplay parts are things you'd see in an intense action movie. I'm not saying this game was done poorly, just that I simply don't like it.

Brutal Legend and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves ZOMG!

I didn't think that the two lead off games would ever be Brutal Legend or Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. I would like to say though ... I'm kind of getting into the Brutal Legend. It's totally not a music genre I'm excited about, but I like a little rock and roll. The game is like an album cover of old metal rock bands record covers. The music is authentic. First Impressions coming later. Check out the Brutal Legend giveaway.

I haven't started the Uncharted 2 as of yet, but I'm going in soon Jimmy! Gorilla Warbear wants to get the final Vidmaster Acheivements on the ODST so I'll probably mix some of that in. Here's the lineup for today!  

Playing today ...

Brutal Legend

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
