6 minutes of mp gameplay shown at E3. Cops v Robbers.

This looks exciting. A new take on the Battlefield universe with a touch of payday mixed in. Cops & Robbers with Battlefield's trademark destructable environments.

Cops need backup and criminals need a crew. Either way teamwork is going to be essential if you're going to pull off that perfect heist or score the big time bust.

This should be awesome. I hope my GPU is ready!

Crysis 2 campaign review

By: BatRastered Mar 31, 2011 | 4 Comments

A decent length campaign with some truly awesome moments is marred by some terrible AI.

Crysis 2 has an interesting campaign, if you can get past the bordom of the first few levels, that is. I spent about 14 hours in the campaign, that's a pretty good length by today's standards. Certainly, you're not getting cheated like Modern Warfare 2's ridiculously short story. The story takes place on a Manhattan island that has been devistated by a plague. Little do they know, that this disaster was casued by aliens.

While I had a great time in the later levels fighting against the "Ceph" aliens, the game starts you off fighting against a private military corporation known as the "Cell". I guess they were in charge of evacuating the city or something, but I was never really sure as to why they wanted to kill me. I mean, I'm trying to save the world! I guess somebody wanted my suit? Whatever. Fighting the Cell is 50% boring and 50% terrible, glitchy AI. If they catch a glimpse of you, they start shooting, but if you're far enough away when this happens, you can just cloak and they often go back to doing what they were doing as if nothing happened. Reall good security force there, Jimmy! The dialouge they spew is equally buggy. Once, I stealth killed a Cell soldier, and one of his buddies heard it and went to investigate. I cloaked and waited for him to show up. Upon standing over his friend's corpse, he quips "must've been a false alarm." Huh?

Once the Ceph start to show up, you're in for some real action. They jump off walls and up onto roof tops to flank you and, of course, take more that a bullet or two to bring down. Unfortunately, I was a good 5 hours into the game before the good stuff happened. In fact, the demo level we saw at E3 2010 was from the second to last level of the game. Really? Really! Still, fighting a walking alien tank while being hounded by many Ceph ground troops is a lot of fun and a good challenge. Interestingly, after wiping out a large chunk of the Ceph offensive, I'm back fighting Cell again, trying to rescue someone from them and they're hell-bent on killing me again... as if I didn't just save all their asses... Yeah, the story is a little convoluted.

The graphics and sound of Crysis 2 are top-notch. I played on an XBOX 360 (in HD, but not 3D) and thought the game looked spectacular. Even better considering I didn't have to install anything to get up and running. Just pop in the disk and go. The draw distance in Crysis 2 is really incredible, which allows the sniper rifle to be very useful in many situations. The orchestral musical score, while not quite Halo standards for me, was quite good and added to the overall experience. The suit itself talks to you, telling you when you cloak or armor are turned on. This is ok at first, but it gets tiresome since those modes consume energy, you can't just leave them on which means you end up hearing that a lot. The controls are typical for a console FPS, with the addition of the shoulder buttons controlling your armor and cloak abilities and never got in the way of the action, although sometimes when close to an object I couldn't jump the way I wanted to. For some reason, the game continues to tell you how to crawl under things even towards the end of the game, I found no way to turn the hints off.

I didn't play much of the multi-player, though what I did see felt a lot like CoD style, which I hate. See goukijones' MP review later. The campaign itself has no real reason to go back and do it again. In fact, it feels a bit like Halo 2, giving you that "hey we're working on part 3" moment at the end.

Good:

  • An FPS with a campaign that actually lasts more than one play session.
  • Interesting fights with the alien "Ceph".
  • The nano-suit is great and makes you feel like a badass.
  • Upgrading the suit and swapping weapon parts (scopes, silencers, etc) doesn't pause the game or take you out of the environment at all.
  • Most of the story is told in the game engine without taking you out of first-person.
  • Controls are spot-on. Shooting feels right.
  • Looks great. Sounds great.

Bad:

  • Multi-player feels like CoD. You have to rank up to get better guns, which is hard when people you play against already have them.
  • Fights against human "Cell" group are boring, plagued by terrible AI and audio bugs, and just don't make sense.
  • Enemy path finding is often broken, leaving bad guys stuck between objects or facing a wall.
  • Too much hand-holding by the game. Press B to crouch is useful in level one, just plain annoying in level 18.
  • The suit won't shut up. I hope you like hearing "cloak engaged", or "maximum armor", or "nano vision enabled", because you'll hear it a lot.
  • No replay value to the campaign.

If you're into the CoD style multiplayer, you might enjoy the overall experience of this game more than I did.

Overall: Rent it

Battlefield 3 is now available for pre-order through Amazon. Also check out the new teaser trailer.

Amazon just unlocked the Pre-order for Battlefield 3. Battlefield is my preferred earth shooter. You can expect Team Gouki to be all over this when it is release sometime in the future.

That box art is probably unofficial. There is no confirmed release date. Amazon just appears to just have a filler date. Battlefield could come out this year. If there is no COD, it would be good for Battlefield to compete with Gears this holiday season.

Check out the teaser trailer.

EA and Insomniac reveal Overstrike at E3 2011

By: BatRastered Jun 11, 2011 | 2 Comments

During EA's E3 2011 press conference, Ted Price announced that Insomniac games was working on a multiplatform co-op shooter.

Insomniac Games, most known for their PS3 exclusives, the Resistance and Rachet & Clank series are now working with EA to release a multiplatform co-op shooter. I'll let Ted Price take it from here:

Here's the full press release:

EA AND INSOMNIAC GAMES REVEAL NEW FOUR-PLAYER CO-OP ACTION GAME OVERSTRIKE

Award-Wining Developer Makes its Worldwide Multiplatform Debut with an Explosive Spy-Fi Adventure

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – June 6, 2011 – A shadowy organization has threatened to take over the world and there’s only one team that can stop it: Overstrike 9. This afternoon during the Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) press conference at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), EA and independent developer Insomniac Games (creator of the Ratchet & Clank™ and Resistance™ franchises) announced the first details of the highly-anticipated game, Overstrike. Combining Insomniac’s knack for imaginative weaponry with immersive and witty storytelling, Overstrike is a four-player cooperative action game featuring a team of elite agents called Overstrike 9. Comprised of an ex-mercenary, a lifelong thief, a gifted young scientist and a decorated detective, the members of Overstrike 9 are considered outcasts within their own organization, but are the best team suited to stop a global terrorist group from attempting to wipe out humankind. Overstrike 9 uses lethal teamwork and an arsenal of fringe-tech gadgets to infiltrate and destroy enemy strongholds. Overstrike marks Insomniac’s first multiplatform release and will be available on the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.

“Overstrike presents a unique blend of features that have long been a part of the Insomniac DNA: high powered gadgets, action-heavy gameplay, memorable characters in a deep and mysterious universe and of course a touch of humor,” said Ted Price, founder and CEO of Insomniac Games. “And since this is our first multiplatform game, we’re especially excited to introduce ourselves to a new audience – one which may not have experienced our previous games.”

Overstrike will launch on the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.

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?

Mortal Kombat is going to need an online key?

By: DragonKiss83 Mar 30, 2011 | 8 Comments

Another game that will require a code...

It looks like if you buy a used copy you will have to drop another $10 to play online.  I get that they want you to buy a new copy because they don't make anything off the used ones, but it still seems like a dick move.  The list of games in this category will keep growing, and I'm sure companies like Gamestop will eventually balance it by fixing their own prices.  What do you think?  Are we getting screwed?  Should we suck it up and pay the extra $?  Do you only buy used?  Or do you even play online?  You know what to do, Don't be a Jimmy.

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.

New Dead Space 3 Weapons Crafting Video

By: cinderkin Aug 16, 2012 | 2 Comments

In the latest video from Gamescom EA has released a video trailer for Dead Space 3 Weapons Crafting.

In the latest installment of the of the Dead Space franchise Dead Space 3 will allow you to craft, customize and share weapons using the workbenches scattered throughout the game.

In the video below you can see how this feature works while it’s being explained in detail. It looks pretty cool and I can’t wait to try it out

Dead Space 3 is out February 5, 2013. Tell us what you think in the comments. Don’t be a Jimmy!

Call of Duty is just like Madden now, every year one thing is different and you just have to pay the $60 don't you Jimmy?

What I want to say real quick is that the Call of Duty and the Madden series are getting a little ridiculous. Stop charging us full price for these games every year. I can't believe the world flipped out when Capcom said a new version of Street Fighter IV was coming out and it was only $40. People were pissed about that. I don't ever hear anything about Call of Duty or Madden coming out every year for full retail. $60 fuckin' dollars!

Why do you need that new Madden game so bad? Because the running back can twist now with a flick of the thumbstick.

Why do you need that new Call of Duty so bad? Because it has new maps? Or you can drive a remote control car up some other Jimmys ass.

Madden's roster could be updated via DLC. OR you can only charge us $40 maybe even $50 for it. We did just buy the same game last year, that the god damn gamestop won't even give us $10 for on trade. You can't even trade in Madden 2010 toward Madden 2011. Well you could, but that deal expired in March when you weren't even thinking about football. EA should step up and give back to the community that has supported this franchise for 20 years.

Call of Duty comes out every year now too, sometimes twice the same year. It's made by two different companies now. One just copies the others code and then repaints it. And BAUM! We got another $60 Call of Duty game to push out on the nubfarm. We'll buy it, hell I'm obligated. But this year, I'm boycotting this series bullshit. How much different is Call of Duty Black ops be from Modern Warfare or the World at War. Somebody had to tell that they were made by two different companies at first. I hate them both. Madden we know is not that different at all. The rosters in real life aren't that different, but we got a whole new Madden game. 

Anyway fuck it. It's not fair to the gamers. Series games should be at a discount or I should get some kind of coupon or discount for continuing to buy every year. 

Don't be a Jimmy!
