Originally released back in 1998 in the Arcades, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is a hardcore fighting game based on the original manga Stardust Crusaders. It’s finally being re-released for everyone’s enjoyment on the PS3 and Xbox 360. Is it worth your money?

If you were a fighting game fan back in the late 90’s going to the Arcades you may have heard of and played JoJo’s Venture or the later renamed JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. Although if you were like me then you never got a chance to play it because either your arcade didn’t have it or you were hooked on Street Fighter III and Marvel vs Capcom games. Unfortunately the latter was the case for many of us and we missed out on JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. Even after the game was ported to the PS1 and Dreamcast many gamers had no clue this game existed. Capcom has given us the opportunity to play this golden gem from the CPS-3 era on the PS3 and Xbox 360 with JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure HD.

Story:

The story of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure HD (JoJo HD) is based on the 3rd story arc of the original Manga commonly known as Stardust Crusaders. Following a teenager named Jotaro Kujo who develops “Bizarre” supernatural powers known as the “Stand”. Jotaro learns from his grandfather Joseph Joestar of the relation of the “Stand” with their bloodline and of the ancestral enemy of his family, a vampire by the name Dio Brando. Jotaro then embarks on a quest to save his mother and to defeat the evil Dio. JoJo’s HD explains the story of all 22 characters through the games story mode (Arcade).

Japan gets Disgaea 4 in PS Home

By: iorilamia Feb 24, 2011 | 8 Comments

Remember Sony speaking of doing "Total Game Integration" for upcoming tittles within psHome to draw people in? (Killzone Plaza Defender as an example). Well Japan is doing the same with Disgaea 4!

Disgaea is definately a game to go crazy for. It has been released today in Japan (U.S towards the end of the year) and they brought it in with awesome playstation home stuff. It is called "Disgaea 4 Home Space" , it has several Disgaea type mini-games including a card game and items! In typical psHome fashion one of the items is "Teku-teku Prinny" that follows you around. Any Disgaea fans here? Check out the pics below and leave a comment on what you think about all this, is this as cool as the Killzone3 promotion, do you like Sony trying to bring games and bonuses into psHome? 

...PRINNY DOOD!

Borderlands 2 improved on the original in many areas: story, graphics, depth of skill trees to name a few. But overall it doesn't have that super fun looting hook that the original had. Here's 10 things we hate about the sequel.

Borderlands 2 improved on the original in many areas: story, graphics, depth of skill trees to name a few. But overall it doesn't have that super fun looting hook that the original had. Here's 10 things we hate about the sequel. 

10. Follow Randy Pitchford on Twitter if you want gold keys, no way to earn them in-game.

There's a big gold treasure chest in Sanctuary (the main city) that can only be opened with a golden key. It's guaranteed to have purple rarity items in it every time you open it. Quest reward? Nah... just follow Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford's twitter and you'll have more keys than you know what to do with. There's no other way to get them. Kinda lame.

9. DLC that doesn't give you any rewards for your maxed out characters.

In the original Borderlands, the DLC would give you bonus backpack space, additional skill points, and a giant bank. BL2's DLC doesn't give you any of this. Once you hit the max level and have used all your eridum upgrades for ammo/backpack space, there's nothing for your character to get in the DLC save for some unique weapons. Most of those suck too (see point 3).

8. Umpteen currencies

Borderlands 1 had money... the economy was way off though as you'd often be displayed at $9999999 and not be able to see how much money you actually had. Many guns showed this price too. Instead of just fixing this in the sequel Gearbox added Eridium as a secondary currency to buy ammo and backpack upgrades. Then, in the DLC, they introduced Seraph Crystals and Torgue Tokens. This plus the golden keys, gave us 5 numbers to track that only worked in certain areas.

7. Anemic backpack space

Before DLC, the original BL maxed out at 42 backpack slots. BL2 maxed out at 27. Wait, what? The bank introduced in Borderlands' second DLC (Moxxi) also stored up to 42 items while the BL2 bank (included in the main game) only stored 16, it has since been upped to 20, while the backpack has gone to 33. Meanwhile, in the original, you could get up to a 60 item backpack if you got all the DLC and lucked out in some of the second quests.

6. Ammo collection mini-game

Do you like opening ammo crates and picking up ammo? Well if you do, you'll love BL2. Due to many guns firing more than one bullet per trigger pull, lowered ammo capacities, and the lack of guns/mods that regen ammo, you'll be scrounging for ammo constantly. God help you if you use a rocket launcher. In a game about guns, I don't know why Gearbox felt it necessary to make the ammo feel so limited.

5. Slag

Borderlands 2 introduced Slag, a debuff element that makes enemies take more damage when you switch to another element type. It's pretty useless in normal mode, but kinda useful in the second playthrough. In the later released 3rd playthrough (UVHM) slag is absolutely necessary. You can't win without it as you'll just burn through all your ammo trying to kill anything that's not slagged. This reduces the types of play styles that you can use and obviously requires you dedicate some of your gear to slag. Bye bye diversity... everyone's the same now.

4. Rabid stalkers

Have you fought these? Ugh... the move faster than you, can down you in two hits, can turn invisible and strike out of nowhere, have a ton of health and don't get distracted by anything. Most annoying ememy in both games and DLC. Runner up is the Rabid skags. They seem completely unbalanced and fighting multiple badasses is easier than dealing with one of these baddies.

3. Terrible guns

For a game about having bazillion-er guns there certainly don't seem to be that many. In fact, it feels like there's less than the first game. If you only count guns that are actually useful, then the number drops even further, eliminating whole manufacturerers of guns. With one or two exceptions (dat kerblaster!) the orange guns in BL2 don't seem as fun to me as the original either. I miss my Maliwan shotties!

2. Orange weapons useless 2 levels later (gets worse the higher the level)

I feel more powerful at level 69 in the original Borderlands while carrying a level 53 gun, than I do at (current max) level 61 in BL2 carrying a level 60 orange weapon. Every level you go higher, the difference one level makes gets bigger too. You need at level gear at all times, and to get some good ones you'll use a golden key that you can only get out of game on twitter. 

1. No rewards (drops are awful, chests are worse, vendors LOL)

In Borderlands, a bandit would be shooting you with an epic weapon and upon his death he would drop that weapon. That doesn't happen in BL2, they just drop shit. The chests are full of shit, and the vendors are just laughably filled with white shit. You can play for hours and hours and never see an orange weapon. You probably won't even get an at-level purple unless you have a golden key either. It just feels like you don't get rewarded for playing this game the way you did in the first Borderlands. The only thing that drops anything good are the legendary loot midgets that randomly pop out of ammo crates in the third playthrough (UVHM) and they most often will drop a relic.

 

My firsthand account of the Sony PlayStation Press Conference E3 2018.

Playstation had the strangest press conference this year.  The first part was in a tent designed to look like a level from The Last of Us Part II.  I’ve been to these press conferences before, and everybody was complaining it was hot in L.A.  I would not have tolerated one droplet of drip during any of these shows nowadays.  There is no need for separate tents, huge dance numbers, dirt bikes, 100 consoles on stage for no reason.  WTF.  I strongly believe the people planning out the press conferences don’t actually even play video games.  Anyway, The Last of Us Part II looks like it’s going to be as much fun as the first one.

Video Game Company Sucker Punch Productions who previously developed Sly Cooper and the Infamous games, showed off their new game.  Samurai Batman!

Join Sir Hammerlock and TORGUE on an EXPLOSIVE tour of Pandora’s moon, Elpis, in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. MOON MONSTERS, deadly new foes, LASER WEAPONS, cryogenic elementals, LOW GRAVITY, erm, butt slams, AND MORE AWAIT YOU ON ELPIS!

The game is not intresting me right now since it's basically Borderlands 2 engine with different story/characters, amounting to a giant DLC and I didn't like the endgame of BL2 very much. I felt they went backwards from the first game a bit and now this game is made by a third party. Outscourcing! However, The humor of Borderlands has always been spot on and this trailer is no different. If you enjoyed Mr Torgue shouting at you in the DLC before, you'll enjoy this video at least.

Fable III topless pie making

By: goukijones Oct 28, 2010 | 13 Comments

In Fable III it doesn't matter what clothes you have on. So you can walk around naked if you want and make pies.

The princess in Fable III has huge breasts and it is an absolute pleasure to watch her do just about everything. Including pie making. This video is for Jimmy. Enjoy.

This is the BS we have to deal with these days

By: BatRastered Jun 17, 2014 | 0 Comments

E3 has some cool announcements, but most of the video you see is bullshit.

First watch this "gameplay" trailer of NHL15 for next gen (PS4)... I'll wait.

I've ranted before (often) about these videos not showing actual gameplay, you know with the HUD and any active character graphics like the little circle you know is under your player in sports games like this. Whatever.

Later I saw Sony had posted a video titled: "PlayStation E3 2014 | NHL 15 | Live Coverage (PS4, PS3)" and it was 9 whole minutes! This will surely show me something, I thought. Nope. Take a look below and see if you see anything familiar.

Oh, the guy talked about some cool features: puck physics, player equipment, ice degredation, fully modeled arenas with 18000 fans... but if you noticed all they showed were clips from that first non-gameplay trailer on a loop while he talked over it. Dafuq?

Some games even seem to go backwards showing less than last year or not showing up at all. Destiny had a demo at last year's Sony conference, this year just a trailer. Granted, they had an alpha that PS4 owners could check out at home, but nothing at E3. I remember when E3 was about being able to check out the new games coming out on the show floor... now it's about watching 8 hours of press conferences on the internet and downloading some betas at home. WTF?

Two new Tales of Xilllia Trailers

By: grey walrus May 30, 2011 | 9 Comments

The next entry into the "tales of" series, is Tales of Xillia, and it's looking fantastic.

The first video is nothing but gameplay. It shows walking around cities and other locations, and battle. The fighting styls remains the same, but what is cool is that the main character fights hand to hand. I think that's awesome. 

The second trailer is a story trailer, but since I don't speak Japanese I had no idea what was going on. It still looked badass though.

Gears of War: The Board Game

By: Phresh May 19, 2011 | 7 Comments

This is a board game based on the Gears of War series. I'm freaking serious.

Here's the official site.

The games being made by Fantasy Flight Games, who've apparently made board games out of Civilisation, BattleStar Galactica, and StarCraft, so they presumably know what they're doing (I wouldn't know, I would never play those).

What gets me though, is that it says "This fully cooperative design by Corey Konieczka pits 1–4 players against a cunning and relentless foe, and is based on the wildly popular series of third-person shooters by Epic Game." Who the fuck is going to play cooperatively by themselves. It boggles the mind.

The games been in development for about three years now. It looks like it was based on the first one but in this picture you can see a Kantus figurine from the second game.
