Asura's Wrath Demo is a WTF machine

By: BatRastered Jan 11, 2012 | 2 Comments

Why would anyone release a demo that made their game look like it was just a QTE fest? Press X to not die!

I downloaded the Asura's Wrath demo on Xbox live last night on a whim. I wasn't really hyped for this game, but I needed something to write about and hey, look, a new demo! (It was either that or the Final Fantasy XIII-2, which I was definitely NOT going to play).

Anyway, once you load up the demo, you're given the choice of two levels. The first is a boss battle with Wyzen, the planet sized boss from the E3 trailer. It's a lot of on-rails style reticule moving with the left stick and firing with x & y until your "burst meter" fills up. Once this happens you're prompted to press RT to do the burst. This triggers a cut-scene with quick time event (QTE) prompts usually asking you to hit the Y button on a timer. I got results ranging from good to great to excellent on my timing, but noticed no difference. The fight repeated this formula from various viewpoints (facing, falling towards, running along side, and finally under the index finger) but the action quickly got repetitive. Slam Y to shoot until the boss does something that requires you to furiously peck B which fills up your burst meter, press RT, execute QTE. Repeat ad nauseam. In between these segments you occasionally got a flash back of story which was pretty hard to get into considering the levels are in the middle of the game and I have no idea what's happening. It was like watching a bad Dragon Ball Z episode.

The second boss battle is a more standard one-on-one with someone who claims to be your former teacher (again, how would I know, in the demo other than he keeps telling me). This is your basic jump/dodge counter-attack engagement, there are of course a bunch of QTE events interspersed and some weird background story of some other guys who are never introduced in the demo.

Just the other day, GoukiJones posted some videos of this game that show Asura fighting a bunch of enemies at once but there's nothing like that in the demo. WTF? Why would you release a demo of a game you want to sell and only show some lame QTE laden boss battles and out-of-context story segments? Just give us some standard fighting rooms that represent what 90% of the game play will be like. Unless you're trying to tell me the whole game will be like these boss battles in the demo. In which case, I have no interest in playing this nonsense and I'll just go back to Battlefield. (Well, I'll probably do that anyway.) This demo gets 8 z's... as in zzzzzzzz.

BAD WEEK

FML! I'm gonna play Ghostbusters on Professional!

  • Well let tell you what happen I was at school doing work before I left the room to get something I last remember putting my Iphone in my hand, and the next I'm leaving to my truck to find out WTF did I do with my phone. Now all I have is a go phone from Best Buy because my contract expires in July so since they don't and I mean Apple have lost or theif warrenty that there charging me $500 or add another line and waste 20 extra dollars on my bill. I've been so sad that I went back to playing Ghostbusters on professional, it was a pain in the ass but I finally beat it and got more trophies I tell you the only thing that makes that hard is the A.I. When I go for the revival I do it quick oh but if the computer has to revive you they take 5 mins. to position themselves so they can revive and by that time you all dead so big pain in the ass. But I still recommend this game fun, story awesome acting is brilliant same guys from the movies. And the controls right on the fning money. If you haven't play it yet your differentially missing out it's the 3rd movie you need to play it. Alrighty then I'm done fuck you apple and thank god for Ghostbusters peace,

4 new Street Fighter X Tekken videos were released today. Featuring M. Bison, Gouki & 2 Tekken characters. :) GoukiJones shares his thoughts in what will probably be his last preview of SFxT before its release March 6th. Pandora sacrifices win tournaments.

So you got Dan telling you the story. Pretty good idea, Ono loves Dan. I'd rather hear it Japanese, but the English voice acting wasn't that bad. Dan needs to sound like a nuab, right? The inclusion of Kuma and the explanation of the different factions involvement brings everything we've been teased about for months, together. Deal with it. If you think the Pandora's box storyline is still crazy, I'm sorry. Street Fighter X Tekken is a Japanese game.

Gouki looks like a bad ass. I'm so out of touch with Tekken, that I have no clue who Ogre is. Ogre looks dope though I don't think he's playable for me. Maybe should get good with Gouki in the game finally.

Everything looks cool right. Is anyone really excited about using any specific Tekken characters. This team here of Jin and the girl looks like a girls team in this game. Just tellin' how it is bro. Ogre looks dope, but that's not how you sacrifice somebody.

That's how you sacrifice somebody. Ryu eats it and that's how it should be. That is a great example of how that is at least an amazing feature of the game. F Ryu. Juri talking to Bison is classic. What about that combat? Marvel on the ground? I think so. Bouncing Jimmys back and forth and tagging in and out constantly. Button mashing madness!

I can't wait for Street Fighter X Tekken, yes I am finally hype. The usage of the gems and combos and Pandora boxes and character specific team up has me hype. Look for Street Fighter X Tekken live shows coming to the stream as soon as I get a copy. Favorite the stream on Twitch.tv/goukijones

Halo Reach Giveaway

By: thewolf14 Aug 18, 2010 | 14 Comments

My Halo Entry: Updated!

 The sound of a waterfall peeked my ears as I stepped out onto this new world. What was this place? This strange, Great world, Filled with life, But a voice toke me out of my daze as I looked around

'Chief! Covenant!' I frowned, Covenant? Here? I followed her instructions as she told me to cross the bridge, the sound of a Phantom roared by me, Elites And Grunts.. Strange, A Small party, I quickly pulled my Assault Rifle up and unloaded the 60 Shot Mag, CLICK! The rifles mag slides out as I released it from its refuge in the stock of the rifle. I inserted another and finished off the last grunt, then moved forward towards the sounds of gunshots. Marines? ODST's? Survivors were my top priority.

As I ran around the cliff side turn, I saw a Phantom landing! "Covering Fire!!" One Yelled before firing the Assault Rifle.

I tossed a well aimed frag and it hit were the Grunts and Elites jumped from there sides of the floating ride. The sound of the Aliens scream as they were killed signaled the marines to move onto the fortress like structure as they were before. Marines Scattered and reloaded. We fought 3-4 Phantoms off that moment, after that Cortana signaled a pelican, Echo 419.. We also saw many life boats flying by from the sky. But asides from that, Echo 419 dropped a hog off, I got in the drivers seat and 2 Marines jumped on the side seat and Turret, I heard a Proud and tall Man Yell "Look Proud Marines!" Sergeant Johnson! A Spartan 1, Very interesting, He will come in handy..

We drove threw caves and valleys for what seemed like forever. We fount the first 2 Teams of survivors and were now helping the 3rd. They were elevated at the top of the hill. We had 2 Snipers, And a couple of Assault Marines and Sergeant Johnson Versus the 6 Phantoms heading toward us... Lovely, Just then, A Giant brute like creature ran up the hill followed by many smaller creatures holding shields. The giant one had a huge shield on it, It charged at us, As it happened, one marine was killed, Me and Johnson toke it out quickly. The rest were gone by then, all dead as the pelican landed near us, We had saved all we could. But I toke it as a win for now. My AI, Cortana told me something As I looked at the canyon and valleys as we flew.

"John, Chatter says, This ring world is known as...Halo."  Cortana Said Slowly

Halo.. I nodded slowly and looked back at the Canyon we had left.

'Halo... I have a bad feeling about this...'  I thought to my self as we headed off towards a darker part of the ring...

And that was my first Experience, On Halo..

 

-----------------------------------------------------------

A few hours...

I watched as Echo 419 lifted the pelican upward in the narrow hole.

"This is as Far as I can go! Heres your stop!" She yelled over my radio channel, I nodded and jumped off. I landed where grunts had been sleeping but were now running and screaming things I didn't understand, One ran into the opening door. 'Darn..' I grumbled. 2 Elites ran out using the sound they always made when angry "WORT WORT WORT!" One yelled as It fired at me! 3-4 of the shots hit me as I began killing the grunts first, I then moved onto the elites, 1 Gold One...1 Blue One.... 

I began firing at the gold ones first, Its sword was trying to make contact with me, SLASH! I barely dodged that strike! I Kicked it with my boot and armed a plasma grenade and Smashed it his face as I rolled away. BOOM! I rolled into the blue elite who fell over and tried to get up, But I kicked it in the face, The AR to its face and Fired furiously! CLICK! It had died when the 14th shot was made. I unloaded the clip from the stock and Inserted a new one in.

"Done yet Chief?" Cortana laughed at my display, Blue blood on my chest plate. I wiped it off, and replied with a groan.

"Schematics show that the Place we need to be is deeper into the facility... So lets go.." She examined the info from the Map Room we had fought to get to.

I simply nodded. It felt like hours until we reached the top of the Control Room peek, Cortana opened the doors and dispatched the remaining grunts left. I walked threw the wide, long hallways. The huge door at the end was colored a grey color and It toke the most time to open. But when we made it. I saw this HUGE Hologram of the Halo Ring.. Then a little floating ball with a blue light in its center, came up to my helmets face and spoke clearly and precisely.

"Hello Reclaimer!" It said loudly

This was BOUND to be trouble...

 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And there it is, This is my attempt at A Halo Story, Its the SECOND Level on Halo CE. I hope you like it, and please Thumbs up!

Review: Paper Mario The Thousand - Year Door

By: blazemanx Jun 20, 2011 | 5 Comments

Who knew something as thin as paper could be so epic!

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door is the long awaited sequel to the original Paper Mario on the Nintendo 64 back in 2001. The original Paper Mario was released at the very end of the Nintendo 64's lifespan so not everyone had the chance to experience it. Paper Mario was an amazing game that sure lived up to the high expectations of Super Mario RPG fanatics. In 2003 Mario RPG fans were greeted with the superb Gameboy Advance RPG, Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga. Then in late 2004 Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door was finally released. I can tell you that if you enjoyed any of the previous Mario RPG games in the slightest bit then Paper Mario 2 will be a joy ride for you from start to finish. Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door achieves greatness on almost every level and is just a fun and engaging RPG.

Story:


Paper Mario The Thousand-Year Door has one of the best Mario game story lines I have seen to date. Generally as you know Mario games typically follow the path of Bowser kidnapping Princess Peach and it's up to Mario (and sometimes Luigi) to rescue her. However in 2003 Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga separated itself from this typical storyline proving that Mario games can indeed have a complex storyline. Paper Mario 2 took no trouble in following in Superstar Saga's footsteps. Creating it's own engaging storyline. It all starts out with Princess Peach who finds a magical treasure map, that leads to an extraordinary treasure. Sending the map to Mario he soon decides to gear up and head out in search of this treasure. Of course in typical Mario game fashion Peach is kidnapped but this time it wasn't Bowser. Following this event comes some pleasing humor involving Bowser being angry that someone other then him had the audacity to kidnap the Princess. Bower then sets off to stop Mario from getting the treasure and he decides he will also kidnap the Princess in the process. You eventually learn that a character named Grodus of the X-nauts is responsible for kidnapping the Princess. The story unfolds at a pleasing pace, and you will just be pleased throughout the entire experience. There is no doubt that Paper Mario is one of the best games I have ever played and arguably the best game on the Gamecube. Paper Mario 2 has so many memorable moments and humor and challenging puzzles that you will have a smile on your face the entire game. 

Gameplay:


Paper Mario 2 is overall just a really fun game. In many RPG's you can become overwhelmed with random encounters and become frustrated when trying to solve a puzzle or get somewhere. For anyone who is unfamiliar with a Mario related RPG, they do not have Random encounters, they do not exist. Instead the enemies are displayed on the level. A battle will occur depending on if you do one of the following: come into contact with the enemy, jump on enemy/hit them with your hammer, or your enemy uses an attack on you. If none of you attack each other a battle will commence regularly, with you attacking first. If you strike your opponent to initiate a battle you can get a first attack in before your real turn. If your opponent attacks you to initiate the battle your opponent will get an attack on you at the start before you can issue your commands.

During the game you will have partners who you will acquire and they will join your party. However you can only use 1 party member at a time therefore in battle you will have Mario and a party member. You can switched these party members during their turn or your turn, however this will sacrifice either Mario's turn or your partners turn when you switch. This can be countered with a quick switch badge that lets you change partners without using it as your turn. Mario and his partner will have HP, but they will change the same FP (flower points) FP is used to cast magic spells or use certain abilities. Mario's attacks consist of various jumping and hammer attacks, these attacks can be further improved by equipping various badges to gain new jumping and hammer techniques. Mario will also have the ability to use "Special Moves" which can be done using Star Power. Every time you recover a Crystal Star (the motivation for the games story) You will gain 1 extra point for Star Power. These special moves can turn even the most hopeless battle into your favor. Mario's partners will all have different special abilities, and each partner can be "upgraded" twice, gaining more HP and abilities each time. Each partner also has a specific move that can be used during the world to uncover secrets or help you progress through your adventure. For example the first ally you receive is named Goombella, and she will give you hints on how to get past the current area you are in. Your next partner, named Koops will help you by shooting out in his shell, which can be used to obtain items out o reach or hit switches at a certain time while you jump across the newly revealed area that only stays for a certain amount of time.

There is also a certain thing called "Action Commands" these are based on time. When you select the jump attack on an enemy you must press A right before landing on the enemy. This will do the following: Deal full damage to the enemy and give you star power from the audience. Yes, your battles take place in front of an audience. When you do a successful action command the audience will become pleased with you and even sometimes throw you power ups or coins. If you fail to properly execute an action command the following will happen: You will lose members of your audience, you will not gain star power and you will not deal full damage to your opponents.

Correctly executing action commands can severely aid you during your battles as you will have symbols that appear in the upper right corner of the screen. Say you accurately land 2 jump attacks and get 2 Mushroom cards. The next time you successfully land an action command you will start a roulette. If you score a Mushroom (3 mushroom cards) you will get a Bonus, which will completely restore you and your ally's HP in battle. There are many other different outcomes of the roulette. There is even one that will poison you and hurt you, but I only got this one time throughout the entire game and came close one other time, but it is nothing to worry about, and happens very rarely. (It depends on you, if you land the third poison mushroom on the roulette, then it is technically your fault that it happened.

During the game you will also collect badges, badges improve your abilities. Every time you level up you have the option to increase your HP by 5, your FP by 5 or your BP by 3. BP is Badge Points and each Badge will cost a certain amount of Badge points in order to be equipped, ranging from 1-6 (sometimes certain badges are 0). You can wear as many badges as you have Badge points for them. But you can easily un-equip badges to equip new ones.

You will also encounter black boxes throughout your journey that will "curse you" with a new ability, such as turning into a paper airplane, and you need to fly to wherever your trying to go. You will gain many other abilities, but I will let you figure out what they are on your own.

One of my favorite things about Paper Mario 2, is that similar to the first game you will control Peach in between each chapter learning more about the story. You will also control Bowser in between each chapter as he pursues Mario and tries to figure out just what the heck is going on. But don't worry, you will get many chances to do battle with Bowser, but remember that the main focus is not on him. 

Graphics:


The graphics in Paper Mario are a joy to look at. Everything looks nice and is detailed. Since Mario and all the characters in the game are 2D or you could even say "paper" since you use a lot of "papery qualities" to solve puzzles. The characters are 2D characters trapped in what appears to be a 3D world. However the game makes good use of the 3D-2D interaction. Mario interacts with the 3D environment using his clever 2D abilities in an extraordinary way. There is also many areas that are cleverly hidden in the trippy game world. Certain areas are hidden because for example some walls might look like a wall but they actually have an opening in them that you don't even realize they are there until half way through the game, and your just like "Wow, I didn't know that was there." Paper Mario 2 has some of the best 2D graphics around and the way they interact with the 3D environment is just really cool to see. The graphics also have a cartoony appearance to them, but it just adds to the pleasant feeling of the game. But don't be fooled, Paper Mario isn't all just about pretty things, it does have it's eerie looking places and cool looking places to. Paper Mario has a lot to offer that you wouldn't know about from first glance.

Sound:


The music Paper Mario is really good. Every tune fits the game perfectly, and I was never annoyed by a single sound in the game. Even the noises that Mario, Luigi, Peach and many other characters make you will not be annoyed by them at all. Everything from the battle music to the various tracks from each area everything is excellent and I never got sick of any of the tunes in the game. Everything here is top notch quality.

Length:


This is one long RPG. I completed my game in +40 hours (I think around 43) and that was not even everything in the game. I still have many side quests to complete and badges and recipes to discover. The first play through is worth the full price alone and the sides quests and privilege of playing the game again a second time through in the future is limitless. I can guarantee that Paper Mario The Thousand-Year Door will definitely be one of those games I will visit again. The single player game will keep you engrossed for hours and you will most likely be sad when the game is over. But thankfully after the credits you are given the option to save your game, then you can return to the town that acts as your hub to do everything you never did. The thing I like about it is after the conclusion and the games story comes to an end you take the boat back to Rogueport and the captain says something along the lines of "I don't know why your coming back here but whatever" And then you meet back up with your old party members and they warmly greet you. 

Final Verdict: BUY IT!

Paper Mario The Thousand-Year Door is an outstanding game and ranks right up with other classic RPG's in terms of quality, presentation and outstanding gameplay. Paper Mario 2 is a game that you should not miss for any reason other then if you detest Mario or RPG's. If you own a Gamecube don't wait any longer, go get this game now before it becomes one of those legendary games that becomes impossible to find, just like all the old favorites from the N64 and SNES days. It will happen eventually, so go get your copy now. Paper Mario is an astounding accomplishment, and just a joy to play for every minute of the experience .

So are you down with the paper plumber? Let us know and don't be a jimmy.

Uh, I can't tell what's real or fake in this video. What is real gameplay and what isn't. We first saw this game 2 years ago at E3. Last year at E3 during the Ubisoft press conference Future soldier looked amazing. Then I played Battlefield 3.

Not to hype for this game right now, plus it's coming out a week before E3 this year and you know what that means. Nobody will give a shit and it will be shoved down our throats during the show.
