X-Men Destiny review - Say it isn't so.

By: dragonkiss83 Nov 9, 2011 | 188 Views | 8 Comments

Here is another game that I was super hyped for, but as time passed I got worried it would be a crappy game. So I held off on buying it, but thanks to Gouki.com I got to check it out.

Lets start this off by saying I am a big fan of Marvel.  Unfortunately their games just don't compare to the likes of the Batman series.  But when I heard that Marvel was working on a game where you were going to be playing a mutant coming into their powers I couldn't believe it.  Of course I start thinking I'll be making my own character, wrong.  Then we hear that you will make choices that affect the story, kind of.  But as a true fanboy I had to give it a chance.  And Gouki.com made it happen (thanks guys) and I'll be looking to return the favor to one of my fellow jimmys.

 

After a combo of a motion comic and a short video clip that give you an idea of what's going on I was ready to start the game.  Like Goukijones I started with Aimi the asian girl.  I did try the guys afterwards just to see how it affected the story and to use all 3 main powers.  They each interact slightly different, but not enough that you really feel like their is a replay value.

After you select your character you get a little clip to fill you in on their story then all hell breaks lose as a rally gets attacked.  You are then given the choice of the 3 power choices.  And unless they add more by DLC that is all the choices you get, Density Control, Energy Projection, and Shadow Matter.  I went with the third choice and after trying all the powers it was still my favorite.  As you get farther into the game you get options for expanding your powers.  Giving you 3 attack and a constant effect.  Really lacking considering the wealth of powers available in the Marvel universe.  The offer X-genes from a few mutants and they also come in sets of 3 to augment your character's powers.  you get to switch them out and and can mix and match them.  If you put a full set together including a suit that changes your look you get access to a bonus that in most cases is useless.  All of these parts are random so you can end up unable to put a full set together for most of the game.

So lets get on to what should have been the driving point of the game, the story and how it changes.  You get to decide on following the X-Men or the Brotherhood.  This is done through a series of choices on side missions.  Well to be fair they aren't so much missions as little battle arenas.  You can help both sides in most cases with only a few times you have to choose between the two.  This is when you will interact with the big names, and a few that are less known.  But for some reason they half-assed it.  You still do the same basic story either way with just a few changes thrown in.  This was a major let down.  Why put the time in to make a great game when you can sell it for the box and name on it?  Well that fact that you have good games to compete with.

The game gives you almost no room to explore, you can look around corners to find x-genes and collectibles, but you won't wander far.  

The first play through I went X-Men, then Brotherhood, then mixed them together.  Unless you want a few minutes of face time with the other team the only other pay off is you get a pat on the back from either Cyclops or Magneto.  

After you finish the game you can play a new game + using the same character with the same power and keep the stuff you gathered.  Or you can start from scratch with a new character and basically get nothing.  When you get to your second play through you will want to skip a lot of the scenes, but that just isn't an option.  If they want to add to the game they need to patch that.  Let's not forget that you don't choose when to save, the game does it on it's own at pre-selected areas.  Many of them right before a long cut scene.  As was mentioned before this is a very short game. In about 4 days i beat the game 4 times and unlocked everything.  when you compare that to the nearly two hundred of hours I've put into Disgaea 4 and the amount of stuff I have left to do in the game it feels pretty crappy.  Luckily the price is dropping fast and even better for me and one of you the game can come just for being a good jimmy.

I enjoyed the game some, but kept thinking about what it could have been.  I'ld stick to renting it if you are a Marvel fan, or have a kid who is since my 7 year old was able to play it with very little trouble.  If you really want to have it sit on your shelf wait until you can get it on Amazon.com or Gamestop for $10 or free as part of some deal.  And trust me it will be there sooner than you think.  Or you can comment on the story telling me how much of a fan you are and why you want the game.  It is a copy for the Xbox 360 and it could be heading to you.

The Daily Lips: X-Men Destiny already forgotten?

By: goukijones Sep 29, 2011 | 145 Views | 2 Comments

Just another day at the office. More PWNn than workin'. Nnnnnnnnnnnnnuab!

Up early today doing some editing. I posted a new Halo Wars Strategy video. Its terrible. I worked on a little Gears of War # Minitage, I don't know about that game.

We played a little GOW3 this evening and I find that game so annoying when I can't find any flow. Granted, I've never been a huge fan of any of the gears. Plus tonight we ended up with one of the most obnoxious party members in the world. Disguised as somebody else he snuck into our party. After 3 games I had to turn it off and go back to the Halo Wars.

Which leads me back to the title. I did not play the X-men at all today. It's so slow paced, it's dreadful. You can't skip the cutscenes and there no chance for a re-do when you get railed in the challenge rooms. The Challenge rooms have suits Jimmy! You can wear the different suits and get different powers... oh never mind.

90% of the day was spent on Halo Wars. WTF? I love it. Watch for a bunch of new videos coming the YouTube channel, plus the Mad Catz promo everyone is waiting for. Don't forget to check out our Resident Evil giveaway right now. You can win a game if you write a preview for it and we're still looking for a Gouki.com Girl to represent.

Don't be a Jimmy!

Blithering Blathering Marvel VS Capcom 3, Halo Wars & X-Men

By: goukijones Sep 27, 2011 | 103 Views | 5 Comments

I'm gonna make it a point to blog everyday about what happened to me and how it invlovled, or didn't involve video games that day. Sometimes it'll make sense, but most of the time it won't. Don't be a Jimmy.

I started the day off with my usual two cups of coffee, dropped a Tashards in the toilet and had a jerk. Not in that order. Watched some Kathy Lee and Hoda -Seth Rogen was guest hosting for Kathy Lee, sad face- while I sorted my dirty clothes. I hate laundry. The entire time I'm doing this all I'm thinking about his Halo Wars builds. That's right even during the Jerk, I multitask Jimmy.

When I finally got out of the house I had to stop by the UPS store AND the USPS. WTF? When I pulled into the UPS parking lot this chick right in front of parks sideways in two spaces. Larry David style. Now I realize that if pull in just a little sideways myself I would fit perfectly and she wouldn't even be able to open her door. So I did and we sat there for a moment. Now I wasn't driving my car and this was a chick, so the gentleman in me finally backed up and she just got out. She didn't straighten out her car ... what a bitch. So I squeeze back in at this point, good luck getting out hooka! I got my big ass box out of the trunk and took it inside. She was in there and apologized as she walked past out the front door. When I finished and came out the front door she was waiting for me to move my car. That's right!

I hit the post office and got a bunch of boxes to send stuff out. Like to Phresh Ghost who won one of our auctions. The package is on the way. 

Now it's time. Halo Wars, yea boi! I had a pretty good run, lost 1 outta the 5 I had before MNF started. How about them Cowboys, fuckin' Cowboys. In Halo Wars I was Cutter guy for the longest time and recently I've been using Forge. Forge has a slow start but 10 mins in with 2 bases and he is off to the races with the supplies. General rank and almost 3 years later and I still don't know what I'm doing in Halo Wars, but it is one of my favorite games of all time.

After the Redskins debacle FnJimmy and I filmed 4 matches for our WWE AI Prediction matches series for Hell in a Cell this weekend. That was quick and easy. Then ... finally ... FnJimmy got what he deserved. A Marvel VS Capcom 3 railing like he hasn't seen in months. Now he barely squeezes out a chip block victory during the first match, I was using Phoenix. I use Phoenix 2 more times and won both those matches. To keep in interesting and also to see if FnJimmy was paying attention, I switched my team to Tron, Morrigan & Dormammu. Morrigan with the Y assist PLUS Tron and Dormammu = FnJimmy railed best of 7. FnJimmy 1 GoukiJones 4. Don't be a Jimmy!

Its bed time soon. Can you believe Seth Rogen is now on Letterman. I'm starting and ending my day with the Green Hornet. Nnnnnnnnnuab!

Thanks for reading. Vote, Comment, Share! Write a blog yourself. How do you deal with your video game habits? Me? I just play Halo Wars until I can see the screen with my eyes closed and while I sleep. Out!

X-Men Destiny - Trailer Comic Con 2011

By: blazemanx Jul 22, 2011 | 467 Views | 5 Comments

The newest trailer for the upcoming x-men title.

I recently saw some gameplay from x-men destiny and its looking pretty sweet. Originally i thought this was going to be like x-men legends/ MUA but i was wrong. You seem to only control one character at a time. I wonder if this is one big story with a few characters to choose from or if each of these new character will have their own story? This game drops at the end of september will you be picking it up?

X-Men Destiny's third character

By: DragonKiss83 May 19, 2011 | 427 Views | 8 Comments

And now for the last character you can use.

His name is Grant Alexander.

He is a Georgia boy who has moved to California and is on the varsity football team when he realizes he's a mutant.  As with the other characters you will be able to pick his base power and have it evolve as you play.  But from what I've read the character selection is mostly about background and personality.  You will have the option to basically have your character play however you want.  So the the answer to almost all of your questions about how does the game play is it depends on how you play.
