Alice: Madness Returns Launch Trailer

By: iorilamia Jun 2, 2011 | 6 Comments

Decent amount of new footage in this new trailer.

Have a look at the madness Wonderland has in store....

Uploaded by http://www.youtube.com/user/EA

 

A bit disturbing, as it sould be. Madness Returns is slowly shaping up the closer it is towards release. Still looks like an excellent rental. As a reminder, if you buy the game you also get the original with it. Anyone still have their eyes on this?

First Look at upcoming Wii Game Pandora's Tower

By: iorilamia Apr 5, 2011 | 6 Comments

Another great looking Wii game, that might end up another Japan-only release.

Nintendo released a short video for a new game, "Pandora's Tower". But that is about it, no real info besides a release date of May 26. Also it seems that they might have teamed up with Ganbarion to make the game (known for making several One-Piece games) The game looks extremely similiar to "The Last Story" a super epic JRPG that I got hyped for and never got any U.S release. Anyways, check out the video below and let us know what you think.

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Update: iorilamia 4/5/11

 

 "the game is centered on two characters, Ende and his friend Ceres.

 

The setting of the game is the Graecia continent, where in the kingdom of Elysium the harvest festival has begun. Ceres has been chosen to sing at the event, but as she takes the podium, beasts appear in the area.

 

In the ensuing confusion, Ende manages to find Ceres, but she's unconscious. She's about to be taken into custody by the army as a witness to the beast appearance. With the help of a merchant named Graiai, the two manage to escape to an isolated tower.

 

Ceres ends up being cursed following the beast attack. Ende learns that to clear the curse he must gather the flesh of beasts that live within the tower. He decides to try his hand at the tower."

Feelings on GuiltyGear and BlazBlue

By: iorilamia Dec 26, 2010 | 7 Comments

Played GuiltyGear since i was young. Wrote on how I feel about the two series, any other fans have some input on how they feel? Decided to write this because as the months pass their is WAY less and less GuiltyGear play and so much BlazBlue expansion.

Well first off, I am originally a GuiltyGear fan before anything else, and it was hard for me to accept BlazBlue's takeover. But I am not completely bias, I tried. Our last versions of GuiltyGear here the two AccentCore games that pretty much fixed and balanced everyhting out nicely (Well, Eddie is still...Eddie).But even with that, the BB Community has been much larger. Upon the release of BB, many people jumped on the bangwagon and loved it, including many old GG players, but with the game being so different, I wouldn't have guessed it taking over the way it did. Since then we have had patches to BB, more games, arcade releases AND DLC. The last year BB has been featured along with ssf4, HDR, and Tekken6 at many of tournaments. With no GuiltyGear in sight (except for the few tournaments that have GG on the side, but it is nothing major and not nearly as many competitors). The only place I see these games still equal is at Evo, where a decent amount of people enter on the side playing BB/GG tournies on small televisions for funzies. What do you guys think about the two games, which is better, why, like them the same, why does it appeal to you and why do you think it appeals to others more? Leave a comment below, and here are my thoughts.

So what makes Blaz B such a popular game so fast?

-Graphics. several of my friends first comments where " dude, the game looks so awesome!" the 3d backgrounds and smooth characters look great.

-Online play. you NEED this now a days.

-Noob friendly easy input mode

- growing game (DLC and new, GG has had many revisions over the years with usually the same roster, and piss people off when they create games like " ISUKA" and "GuiltyGear2")

But in my opinion, the Guilty G upsides are a lot better (besides the online part )

-The game is MUCH faster,has a much better combo system with Fautless romans, cancels and so on leading to crazyness.

- more singe player game modes , to challenge yourself under certain conditions and goals

-graphics. those are some of the best sprites around, they look great and go with the game well. dont need no HD shit.

-characters in GG seem to have a better variety because the BB cast is basically remixed versions of 1-2 characters+ new stuff. Also the ridiculous peronalities of the GG cast are just so lovable.

the music. the bestly metal soundtrack Daisuke Ishiwatari helped create went perfect with the game. I am not against the anime pop music of BB, but personally what GG had fit better, and BB's rock songs just dont have as much "UMPHHH" to them.

 

overall Blazblue has easier inputs, slower gameplay and not as many ridiculous combos, so it is much more noob friendly and not getting your ass rocked by people who mastered combos. Also the graphics and beauty draw people in aswell, along with the online play keeping people to play more often because online.

In the end I just couldn't do it, i sold my copy of BB, dont play it (even though all my friends do), and find someone to play GG with once in a blue moon. Without online play GG will continue to suffer HARD.

 

On a side note: thank god Daisuke Ishiwatari didn't want to do a BlazBlue vs GuiltyGear game, to sum it up he felt the same way I did, and did not want that series to cross and mess with guiltygear. My hopes for the future is that they will release one more in my beloved series, and it would be GG:3. Basically the same as Accent-Core Plus, but add in the characters from GG2 Overture( that game sucked, give those characters a rightful place in the 2d realm) with a much enlarged story-line,online play and possible dlc.

Actual Gameplay of ssf4 3DS "shoulder view"

By: iorilamia Jan 9, 2011 | 7 Comments

Yoshinori's press conference shows us 3ds gameplay along with the shoulder view

At Yoshinori Ono's conference SSF4 on the 3DS was displayed. The preview has been thrown around for months and now we get to see it in action instead of a commercial. It looks pretty sick, and not too complicated, also the video doesnt give the eye popping effects as we will see in person, so this only gets better upon release. I for one love it, ssf4 on the go (no its not AE version), what do you guys think about it?

The action starts at15:00, everything before that is talking.

Zero snapback glitch brings easy Time-Outs in MvC3

By: iorilamia Mar 9, 2011 | 9 Comments

Once again, and again and again, Desk shows us that MVC3 is full of some pretty bad glitches, many causing timeouts.

The Zero Glitch is simple, when using Zero's shadow move while doing Sougenmu, use snapback. The enemy and the assist have to be comboed together though, and you need 2 bars. The enemy never comes out, if you have a life lead...you win by time out. With all of the glitches Desk, and Renic have been finding (with much more to come by Desk), this game is pretty broken. Like, these glitches are fairly easy to pull off, even online. Fortunately someone hasn't abused it against me yet, what do you guys think of all of this?

By: iorilamia Feb 13, 2011 | 5 Comments

Doug Huggem is ready for "Sober Game Night" and wants to share his Granola and good values to everyone. Are you nice enough for the ultimate friendship?!

     

The gamer comedy group Mega64 is welcoming Duke Nuken forever with a great parody called "Doug Huggem".    Doug loves to recycle and teach good values!  What makes it even more win than it already is, they used Jon St. John, the original voice of Duke Nuken to do this...and he is wearing the sunglasses. Loved it!

cool

So guys, is it nice to be nice? Leave a comment on what you thought below :D

Rockstar has brought lots of awesome DLC to RDR and here comes a free one, filled with goodies.

Myths and Maveriks Bonus Pack will be a free to download September 13th! The new pack will bring us a bunch of single-player characters to use in multiplayer, new multiplayer areas and updates game-modes to old areas.

The maps and modes will be-

(Bold indicates it being new to multiplayer)

Cochinay – Gold Rush, Shootout, Gang Shootout, Stronghold
Nekoti Rock – Gold Rush, Shootout, Gang Shootout
El Presidio – Gold Rush, Shootout, Gang Shootout 
Plainview – Gold Rush, Shootout, Gang Shootout
Gaptooth Mine – Shootout, Gang Shootout
Pike’s Basin – Shootout, Gang Shootout

Anyone else stoked for this? I rarely play RDR now , but it's still one of my favorites and the DLC sounds great. Personally Nekoti Rock, Cochinay and Pike's Basin sound like a blast for a structured MP game (would usually just be people shooting each other during Gang Hideouts). As far as characters go, it's nice that some of these guys are getting justice. Landon Ricketts and Nastas are favorites for sure. How do you guys feel about the upcoming DLC, is it enough for you? Any other maps you would like to see added?

Also Rockstar recently added some sweet screenshots of the upcoming pack, enjoy.

Call of Duty ModernWarfare 3 is real... Teaser Trailer released

By: iorilamia May 13, 2011 | 6 Comments

35 second teaser trailer for your pleasure.

Hey loyal CoD fans. The past week has been filled with rumors of MW3...well the teasiest of teaser trailers was released for it.

Uploaded by http://www.youtube.com/user/CALLOFDUTY

 

Oh so clever, they spelled England...with a 3. Anyways, true this trailer doesn't show much, but the overview of England says a lot. Word on the street is that MW3 is going to be taking a Battlefield 3 approach with MASSIVE maps and tons of destructible cover. With England being an extremely crowded and architecturally intricate place, we should expect something epic. I'm not too big of a CoD fan but the MW's have been extremely fun with friends. Any of you hyped or interested? For the majority of CoD fans, Black Ops was a huge letdown, and many awaited a new MW.  Leave a comment and let us know what you think.

I Am Alive, What's the status here?

By: iorilamia Jan 1, 2011 | 7 Comments

Had no idea this game was in the making until recently, and damn it sounds great, I would really love to enjoy more info and screens and gameplay.

The game has been in development since 2008 and constantly pushed back with more and more BS. The schedualed release date is sometime this year (TBA) on ps3,wii and the 360. Earthquake fucks some shit up in Chicago and you play as this dude who is trying to survive, and find his chick. you have to evade hostile people who are stealing shit, somehow keep hydrated and not get killed by the crumbling city. The game is first person, you control a guy named Adam, your searching the city ofcourse to stay alive and find food and weapons, but you can also threaten people with a empty gun to get our way. You can also drive abandoned cars in third person view. Their isnt much video and images on the game, but from what little we have, I already love the idea. What is important is that they dont fuck up mechanics, or end up having a boring ass game. Also a game like this might actually be a lot more fun on wii because of motion control, but if theirs some sort of online play I will be getting it for ps3 instead. Links below to info, videos and pictures, what do you guys think? Hopefully you guys have some more info on this game x,x

E3 Trailer (Judging by the video, I HOPE theirs random environment events, like shit crumpling away or crazy people going apeshit, simply, maybe RDR style in some sense)

Facebreaker Review

By: iorilamia Mar 17, 2011 | 5 Comments

My review of the Arcade Boxing game "Facebreaker"

Recently for my birthday a friend of mine saw a cheap PS3 game at Gamestop called "Facebreaker" by EA.  He thought this would make a awesome present....let the review begin.

Facebreaker is a 2-player game with a decent amount of characters, and even more to unlock. As any arcady-like fighting game, it isn't one to take seriously, but the problems and frustration this game causes are very notable.

Graphics and Design- Basically all the characters are based off of some sort of sterotype. The asian girl is hyper and wears ridiculous clothes, the Russian guy "Molotov" is ridiculously huge with bullets and grenades attached to his belt, and so on. The ridiculous muscles, breasts and facial expressions make the game fun. It keeps a true arcade-style look and is even more entertaining to poke fun at. The different level backgrounds are simple, nothing too special to pay attention to. All in all, the characters are lovable.

Sounds and Music- Nothing special here. A bunch of generic OOPMFS and WHACKS coming from the characters followed by grunts and whines. The music is usually heard in the background and doesn't really stand out.It mainly consists of angsty rock. A lot of it is from half-assed bands no one really enjoys, but notibly there are tracks from Drop Kick Murphys and Gogol Bordello.

Gameplay- Horrible. Even as an arcade game ; horrible.Your character can throw, dodge, block, dash, punch high and low. You also have cool special move combos that lead into "facebreakers" and other types of breakers. The game turned out being a mash fest. Everyone punches RIDICULOUSLY fast and can chain combos that take off way too much health. The problem with the speed and how effective mashing is, is that you find yourself not having the reflexes to compete in a  legit way. Many counters and blocks come out luckily. Parrying does give the game a bit of skill, but not too much. What is awesome about the gameplay is that every character has some special only for them. Whether it be some sort of movement, or combo, they did a nice job on that. Besides taking off your opponents health bar and winning by knockouts, performing a succesful "facebreaker" is like doing a instant-kill in guilty gear....but even easier. Pulling off certain combos gets you this, and it doesn't win the round, it wins the match as a whole.

Cool extra stuff- The game has a face capture thingy so you can scan yourself or someone as a character and use it online. Also the game has damage progression, you see how beat up your character is getting and shows it in cutscenes. And...Kim Kardashian is in the game, lolol?

Game Modes- Besides the typical practice mode and story mode ( which is...not much) and so on, there is a "couch Royal". It is tournament style play with your friends, that was a little nice.

Anyways, FLUSH IT! This game isn't even a rent, unless you want to dick around with your friends on a ridiculously reptitive cartoony game. It's fun for like...20 minutes. I understand it is a Arcade-Type game, but they could have put some more thought into the fighting system and balancing. The game simply doesn't have enough magic to keep you playing, it might be BAD ASS for little kids though.

What characters would you like to see return to a series?

By: iorilamia Feb 7, 2011 | 13 Comments

What characters do you wish would come back to a game series? Did one of your favorites get killed off, did the story change completely, or did they just stop putting that character in games?

First I'd like to start off with Geese" DOUBLE REPPUKEN" Howard. He hasn't been in a new snk game for years.

 

The mans a badass to say the least. He is from FatalFury and his attitude and fighting style are what makes me miss him the most. The version of Geese that I want returning, is one similiar to the CvS2 style. If you are not familiar with Geese, basically he had Gouken counters, air fireballs that push him backwards, and ground fireballs. He had incredibly strong normals and his super "RAGING STORM!!!!" is the best anti air ever. Besides his yelling, what made him so cool was he taunted you when he throws you and basically tells you your going to die before the round starts; "you cannot escape long death...." I would have loved to see him in kof12 (a long with 30 other characters,lol) and he wasn't included in 13 (doubt they will have DLC). Here to hoping SNKP use him in something. Heres a video demonstrating some basic combos with N-groove. Uplaoded by http://www.youtube.com/user/6248p

 

Second Character is Karas! The armored swordsman of Tatsunoko.

Karas was a popular anime and manga before his appearance in Tatsunoko vs Capcom. He is on my wishlist because even though TvC was an AMAZING game (and will always be one of my favorite vs games), it did not get really big, mainly because it was wii only and Americans don't know wtf Tatsunoko is. With MvC3 coming I don't think we wil see a tvc2 anytime soon...or ever. Karas was one of the lowest hp characters (next to Zero and roll) but his playstyle was beast. He has great offensive slashes with nice reach and quick jabs that allow him to combo into huge setups. His reflect projectile move and assist also could be used as an attack into his super combo. He had a counter super, one that rushes, and one that turns him into a flying disc, all of these perfectly transported from the anime to the game. What made karas unique was his chain attack, his srk and a dash atack that could lead into combos. His uppercut attack was not only extremely fast, but it could be done twice and went straight up very high. His chain could be used long range to hold enemies for assist mixups and supers, or to pull them towards him leaving them helpless. Despite him being "bottom tier"  because he got super nerfed in American version,I felt that if you used him right, he was unstoppable! Heres a short basic combo video for those of you that are unfamiliar.

Finally is the Zora people, from Legend of Zelda.

They where Fish people that played guitars made out of fish bones ; epic. You first encounter them in Ocarina of time, but Majoras Mask is where the real fun starts. Once you get the Zora mask, you become one of them and get to explore their world. It was just good fun. The outside world was big and interesting enough, but being able to swim to  new places was even more exciting. Obviously the new Zelda game coming out for Wii ins't having some sort of transforming link (that we know of), but as long as we get to interact with the Zora and travel to their world, I'm happy.Video of Zora link doing quests and stuff, uplaoded by http://www.youtube.com/user/SonicBlueSky

 

So what characters would you guys love to see return? Have you played these games/characters? Leave a comment below.
