Modern Warfare 2 Review

By: BatRastered Nov 12, 2009 | 5 Comments

A great game all around, but the story falls a bit short.

Campaign

The campaign mode is single player only. I've heard Infinity Wards's reasoning behind this (that it would hurt the narative and scripted moments) and was excited for some intricate storytelling. Mostly I felt the game failed to deliver on that count and that I would have been more satisfied with a true co-op experience.

A strange game. The only winning move is not to play. How about a nice game of chess?

The story is a bit muddy and doesn't make a whole lot of sense on many levels, a fact which while dissapointing, doesn't take much of the fun out of just shooting bad guys in the face with speed and precision virtually unmatched in a console FPS. I'm not sure if IW was trying to make a point about war not having clear good vs evil in modern times or what, but I rarely felt like a hero in the game. Every victory achieved seem to have vast unintended consequences and betrayals at every turn. Which left me with a strange feeling of having enjoyed playing through the game but not wanting to play through it again. An interesting take, if on purpose, on the war game genre.

A larger problem for the campaign is that it is so short. I put just over 5 hours into the campaign mode to beat it on the normal difficulty. 5 hours by a guy who, if multiplayer is any indication, sucks at this game. I died a lot during those 5 hours. If you've been playing the first MW recently and are any good at it, you should be able to pwn this game in about 3 or 4 hours. If you're only interested in the solo campaign mode, you really ought to rent this game rather than buy it. Not because it's not good, it was a lot of fun for those 5 hours, but because you'll then be done with it and not want to play through it again. MW2 could have really used one or two more levels. There is one of the main bad guys in the story who you never get to fight really and the game doesn't say much about what happens to him. Perhaps this was to leave an opening for MW3, but I still felt like I had some unfinished business at the end.

There were several moments in the original Modern Warfare that left my mouth hanging agape at what just happened, or how great a scene looked. Who could forget the nuke, or crawling out of the downed helicopter aftward? The AC130 gunship level looked like it was ripped from CNN. The missle launch. The gun sliding accross the pavement into your hand allowing you to defend yourself at the last second through blurred vision in slow motion. MW2 had some great level design, but I can't really pick any awe inspiring moments out like those from the first game.

Multiplayer

Multiplayer comes in two flavors: spec-ops and the traditional compettitve multiplayer featuring deathmatches, CTF, and territories games.

The spec-ops features some set pieces from the campaign that you can play with a friend. It is only 2 player, which in today's world seems a bit lacking. While playing some of these missions co-op in the main campaign would have indeed hurt the storytelling a little bit, I just don't feel satisifed with having them out on their own. Also no leaderboards, WTF?

The traditional multiplayer allows up to 8 on 8 team action, and is basically the same game you played in the original MW with a few refinements. The maps are a bit more spread out and grenades are more restriced, so there is much less grenade spam. (Cole Hamels' plea must've worked.) You constantly level up and unlock new weapons, titles and perks even if you suck, which is great because apparently everyone who plays this online is a professional. I played it the first night and day after the release and expreienced very little lag and no timeouts or host disconnections, though I did have one wierd instance where I was stuck on the lobby screen and my party was somehow playing at the time. Overall, this is the mode that will keep most users playing this game for some time to come.

Overall verdict: Buy it!

iPhone 4 vs XBox 360 and Playstation.

By: PapaBear420 Oct 4, 2010 | 8 Comments

iPhone 4 a new way of gaming.

Hey what's up Gouki fam. I haven't played XBox much these days. I mean don't get me wrong the new Halo Reach is cool and all but everything is starting to seem like the same crap over and over again with just new boards. I don't mind dropping 60 or 70 dollars on a game but shit give me something new. More than just 5 new boards and some crappy mission that after a few bong hits I'm going to forget about anyway. Side note if you play a game beat it and then a few months later play it again because it was just so cool. Well, your a douche nozzle, I mean no offence, but.....your still a douche nozzle (that means you are not the bag but just the stick, and that's gross). I'm sure you can find something better to do with your time then get pissed at Mission 2 Level 3 all over again, YOU FUCKING POOP STICK..But again I mean no offence. You didn't see the US saying "hey we should do that Mexican-American war thing again". Oh wait they are kind of, you know with the whole wall thing and all. Bad example, but you know what I mean.

Anyway what was I talking about, oh yea the iPhone 4. I love this thing, you can get games for 99 cents most of the time and they can keep you busy for hours. Granted I smoke and one time stared at light socket for 15 minutes and thought wow they look like happy faces saying "oooooo". Go look, they do. Oh yea back to the phone. The thing about the iPhone and even the Droid is that you can take these on the go and have fun playing them. There's like 200000 games to choose from. Granted you can't take them to Game Stop and get credit for them, but with GameStop exchange rate you'll walk out owing them money. (GAMESTOP ARE ASSMONKEYS!! DIRTY DIRTY ASSMONKEYS!!) no offence to any monkeys out there. Unless your are an assmonkey then you should be very offended. It's portable gaming people, you can play a game on the crapper check your email and youjizz.com all at the same time. Thank you multitasking :). Granted it does have its faults like when my wife told me to say hi to her mother while on face chat and I was on the toilet. Don't judge me I make all my calls from the bathroom, great acoustics but a very weird moment for us both. 

I know it these shitty little games don't compare to Halo or Call of Duty by any means but you can only play that crap so much. You can play Angry Birds or Enigmo anywhere and even use your iPod at the same time. There's even a app that can change your voice during a phone call. A huge stalker favorite.  So put down your controller and pick up your phone there some cool games in your app store, and you can go out and see boobies that aren't virtual.

Why Do I Love Fighters? Part II

By: ariscool24 Feb 2, 2011 | 9 Comments

This is a short story of why I should win the Marvel VS Capcom 3 Ultra Combo Giveaway. Well I think its short enjoy! ^_^

First of all, if you have not read my first story I suggest you click on the link below. 

http://gouki.com/Story/Details/why-do-i-love-fighters

  In my first story I told you guys I have a lot of reasons why I love fighters. Well only a clip and a few words can only do so much to tell this community how much I really feel about fighting games. So let me explain more of why I love fighters. Like most gamers out there I started gaming when I was about four years old. I really didn’t care for it at the time because all I had on my mind was a dream of becoming a Power ranger. And like all other four year olds, I played with lots of toys of course. I had friends but most of them lived to far, so staying at home was a no brainer for me. Now I do not remember how my older brother got his hands on a Sega Genesis so I’m just going to say it magically appeared to give this story some spice. The game I started off with on the Sega was Sonic the Hedgehog. Sonic really made me happy for how no one else in my family was able to get so far on the game. And by my brother being eight years older than me it felt that much sweeter. I could never beat the dang video game, which leads me to forget about game. Until one day my brother bought the most amazing, electrifying game, Street Fighter II. When I first saw Street Fighter II I was blown away by the graphics, sound, & music. But with all of that said, that’s not what attracted me to the game. What really caught my attention was that versus screen. The fact that someone instead of the computer was playing against me just gave me goose bumps that were thick and solid as a basketball. I was in my sanctuary playing SF2 on the Sega Genesis with a smile so big the Joker would be jealous. I remember crying because M. Bison was beating me every time I’d reach the last stage. But one day I managed to beat him and during that whole year I never stopped smiling. A few years past by and If I remember correctly the Playstation system released. I got the Playstation the same year of its release with demos and all. Now I was into other games like Crash Bandicoot and more demos because for some odd reason fighting games like to take a few years off. Whatever the case that didn’t keep me from running into one of the greatest collaborations of all time. My mother works in the school system, so she had a really good relationship with the principle who owned the school. One night we were invited to the principle house or should I say mansion. And as the lady showed us around her lovely house she thought I felt bored. So she told me to go on the other side of the house and walk up stairs and I’ll be pleased to what her son was doing. When I finally got to the room I saw the game that almost made my head explode, Marvel VS Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes. When I saw Wolverine fighting Ryu I was literally screaming out loud “Hey that’s Ryu from Street Fighter, that’s Wolverine from X-Men!” Everyone who were sitting down playing the game didn’t even get mad because they were just as hype as me. With the battle system moving so fast, I was blown away once again by gameplay. I wanted to spend the night but my mother had other plans. Seeing MvC for the first time reminded me how great fighting games are again. I started buying every fighting game I could get my hands on and also played at the local restaurants that had arcade cabinets. More years past as my love for fighters grew with games like Mvc2, Guilty Gear series, Capcom vs SNK series, Street Fighter Alpha series, and Bloody Roar series. Now remember these are fighting games so once again the hiatus for the genre hit big time which lasted for almost a decade. The Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii were the new babies. Games like Call of Duty and Halo was all we heard. Soul Caliber released and at the time felt really fresh, but it still didn’t feel that void. I hear some fighting game fans called it the dark ages and the feeling was just that “dark”.

 

  Street Fighter IV released and it put a smile back on my face bringing back the technicality of fighters to the so called dead genre. Other game companies started to catch on to the revival of fighting games like Blazeblue and Tekken 6. Even upgraded versions of the heavy popular SFIV A.K.A vanilla noticed the trend it set and decided to make Super Street Fighter 4. The funny thing about all this was the fact that my friends doubted me on how well fighting games would do on the next gen consoles. Now most of my friends play fighters more than any other video game genre. In the middle of all this and after a decade of demand Capcom announces Marvel VS Capcom 3 Fate of Two Worlds. I was so excited for this game simply because I already knew one of my favorite Capcom character was going to make it on there. Dante was all I wanted when it came to this sequel. Heck, Capcom could have said Marvel VS Devil May Cry and that would have sold me there. With the internet blowing up with pictures and videos it was only a matter of time before I get my hands on the game. I never knew I it would be as soon as October, 28 2010. I was lucky enough to live in one of the cities where Capcom would be hosting Fight Club. Fight Club is basically a get together like a night club but with a preview of a video game they’re promoting. I was dead set on going to that event no matter what. I’m currently in college and I had a test early that same day. I made sure I studied up and was ready to go that same day right after class. I met up with my friends and we drove straight downtown to the Atlanta metro area. When we got there we couldn’t find the location or at least the spot where it was being hosted because a train was oddly blocking the parking space. We quickly found a parking space and climbed over the train to find our place in line for the event. To be honest, I felt like a rebel climbing over the train which made the hype meter for this event rise. When we finally got into the event I couldn’t believe my eyes. I was thinking here I am a guy who grew up playing this game and now I’m at a night event that’s promoting it, Godlike! I didn’t just play the game at the event ether I also made the most of my night there using my other talent dancing. I also took some pictures as proof of this Fight Club event. My love for fighters after that night just blew the top off. I’m so happy to see how much fighters have evolved yet stay true to the fans that’s been with them from day one. I hope I win this contest to show other people who are not into fighting games show how strong this community is. Heck, I hope this inspires people who are not into video games at all. The gaming community is growing very fast and I believe the whole world should witness this.

In this video you might catch me dancing at the Capcom Fight Club I attended in Atlanta, Georgia.

In this picture its me next to the lovely cosplayer Yaya Han.

COD Carbon Copy

By: hoho23 Nov 23, 2010 | 8 Comments

There's nothing new about this Call of Duty: Black Ops shit.

I've been a COD fan since 2 was released on the 360 at Launch. It got me through the weak launch and was the best game by far of all the titles that came with the 360. COD 3 (made by treyarch) I didn't like much due to the vehicles, leave that shit for Battlefield or Halo, and just wasnt as fun as 2. Modern Warfare was something extremely fresh something new and was extremly addicting, this is when COD took over the FPS thrown and became the juggernaut that it is.

Then a year later as they do with every COD game now, came COD WaW (made by treyarch), which was ok i didnt think this game was that great either lots of bugs online (people shooting you from under the map wtf!) and seemed like they couldn't come up with thery're own material felt like a WWII version of MW which was made by infinity ward. MW2 was released last november i believe, and lived up mostly to the giant hype that was accumulated by fans and press. It added Pro Perks that added abilities to your online soldier, specific challanges, and a new co-cp challenge mode.

Now with the recent release of Black-ops which I only played for a short time, I really didn't see anything new in the multiplayer (didn't play the story which I heard was good). There was nothing at all that was new in Black Ops over MW2. I actually noticed things they took out like some of the perks and death streaks. I recently sent the game to Jimmy so he could give it a try and write his opinion on it, and if i know him he wont be on it for to long. Long story short if you have MW2 keep and just buy the map packs, I dont believe Black-Ops is worth $60 for a copy of MW2 in which I believe the multiplayer is much better, plus you wont have to deal with so many 9 year old nuabs screaming into the mics, since they'll all be on Black-ops.

Call of Duty Elite Closed Beta Test Starting Soon

By: Phresh Jun 10, 2011 | 3 Comments

Here's your chance to try out the Call of Duty Elite service first

You might need to set up an account at callofduty.com and hope for the e-mail saying you've been invited. This was how most of us got into the beta for World at War.

The e-mail says you can connect with other people who play CoD, test your skills in tournaments and events that award virtual and real prizes, and access personal stats and strategic info to up your game skills. Basically, it's going to be Halo Waypoint for Call of Duty. I didn't really use Waypoint so I didn't think it was popular enough to copy.

Here's a link to the sign-up page so you might be able to bypass registering completely.

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.
