A Wild Rant on Contrast

By: BatRastered Sep 24, 2009 | 3 Comments

With apologies to Richard Llewellyn... How dark was my television that day, too, black in the bright sun.

Jimmy, WTF is with all these dark games lately? I don't mean dark as in gritty storyline, but literaly, as in "I can't see shit", dark.

I first encoutered this development this year while playing through Mass Effect. Now, Mass Effect is not truly a dark game, but there are some very low contrast parts. Specifically I'm refereing to the surface maps when landing on a planet. The map screen consists of a dark blue field with some slightly lighter (but by no means light) blue segments to indicate elevation. I couldn't see the map at all unless I closed all the blinds and even then it was a bit of a struggle.

More recently, Batman Arkham Asylum was released for the PS3 and 360. I loved this game, but you really had to play more than half of it with the "detective mode" on which turned the screen bluish and highlighted the bad guys skeletons in red. There were many parts of this game that were hard to see without it.

Just this week, Halo 3: ODST came out for the XBox 360. This game too has a mode (they call it VISR) that allows enhanced vision. Half the game, again, requires it because it's night and I guess there's no lights on in the city or something. VISR mode highlights all the edges of objects in red (for enemies), green (for allies), or yellow (for objects like building walls). There was a part early on where you have to search through a dark building for a clue, and I swear I was just walking into wall for 5 minutes because I couldn't see shit.

Do the developers of these games play them in the dark exclusively? Can we get them some sunshine? Serioulsy, bump the contrast a little... or throw in a flashlight for my character. Do something so I can see. Wandering around in the dark is not fun for me. Some of us like to play during the day or with a light on so other people in the room can see what they're doing.

End of rant.

Halo 3 ODST first impressions

By: goukijones Sep 23, 2009 | 1 Comments

Turn the light off! Close the frickin' blinds!

The levels are a black screen! I couldn't see shit. Unless I turned on the ODST special visor. I don't want to play the game in pitch black! I'm mad, the levels that are day light or that weren't in the dark are amazing. All of the levels unfortunately are not that hard. 

Legendary Railed! With 3 people! Maybe it's a little more challenging on single player, but that would be boring. Gorilla Warbear is Gorilla Tactics! 

You can't jack tanks, but you can plant grenades in them. You can't jack Banshees either, but you can fly them.

It was fun and it took about 6 hours to raip that shit.

 

Man of Ponage is getting railed right now Jimmy!

Great deal for ODST at Toys R Us this week.

Yesterday I went to Toys R Us to pick up my copy of Halo 3 ODST. I knew there was an action figure included and a $20 gift card too. What a deal! almost $32 of free shit for buying a game I was gonna get anyway. Also they had a buy a PS2 game $19.99 and under and get one free deal. I found two for $9.99 and easily found a third. So for $20 I got three old school PS2 games I can play ... whenever I have time for that. Jimmy!

Halo Waypoint Review

By: goukijones Nov 5, 2009 | 3 Comments

Another way to track how much I suck at Halo and watch cool Halo Anime. Awesome!

I unlocked 8 avatar awards for just downloading this awesome! WTF is an avatar award you ask? It’s a frickin’ t-shirt Jimmy! I checked my stats right away … yep I suck at Halo. I couldn’t find where to see such detailed stats as Bungie.net provides or a way to compare with friends.  Shouldn’t that be a feature?

Halo Waypoint has tons of videos which is cool I haven’t seen a lot of these. I like how I can watch the European launch video for Halo 3 that I’ve never seen. Wait it just froze. Bufferring … buffering again, never mind its faulty. My Netflix doesn’t do this.  The Halo 3: Landfall video is on here, which is my favorite piece of Halo media you have to check it out! It’s done by the same Jimmy that did District 9. It’s great to remember these old Halo videos.

This is a nice addition for the Halo universe. I’m excited about seeing the Halo anime Saturday. I’m just not excited to PLAY Halo. ODST was a big let down, that game came and went so fast I’m ready to sell it. I don’t play multiplayer at all anymore. I REALLY hope Reach revives the series for me, I’m dying to hear some solid news on that game. Don’t be a Jimmy!

Calling all Halo players Mythic map pack II

By: iguapo Feb 13, 2010 | 7 Comments

Damn what a jimmy...

So get this...

I haven't played my xbox in a few days so imagine my surprise and delight when I turn it on and I see on the front page "Calling All Halo Players"! of course I'm gonna check it out.

Well it ends up being new maps, or so it seems... 

It ends up being the same ones that Halo 3: ODST came with ughh! I downloaded them like a noob and I'm out 10 bucks. I can't believe the Xbox 360 can't remember the fact that I own ODST. Whatever my bad, don't make the same mistake as me and look like a major jimmah.
