    Alan Wake - Xbox 360
    Alan Wake will be released tomorrow May 18th, is one of those games where I wish I had an Xbox 360. Some people might disagree with me but I wish I had this as a PS3 exclusive instead of Heavy Rain. Don’t get me wrong, Heavy Rain was good, but not good enough because it involves too much of just clicking buttons (I nearly fell asleep while playing the demo). I guess I prefer more action oriented thriller games like Alan Wake.

    Alan Wake - Xbox 360

    Alan Wake really brings back memories from series such as Silent Hill and Fatal Frame. It has the atmosphere of Silent Hill. The way of killing the bad guys is to use things that produce light like flash bang, giant spot lights and flash lights which reminds me of Fatal Frame which also uses non conventional weapons like Camera Obscura, instead of guns and frag grenades.

    Alan Wake - Xbox 360

    For those of you who has an Xbox 360 I think you should consider getting it or at least rent it.

    Oh how I wish I had an Xbox 360…..

  • Hilarious Just Cause 2 flying people glitch
    By on April 12th, 2010 | No Comments Comments

    LMAO, this is one funny glitch from Just Cause 2. Just like one of the commentors said, this also reminds me of 2008′s The Happening where people mysteriously fall from the sky. This is one glitch that I won’t get tired of experiencing!

  • Dead Space 2 – 30 second game play teaser
    By on March 31st, 2010 | No Comments Comments

    Oh look what I’ve found, a short but sweet Dead Space 2 game play teaser. Though its only 30 seconds, it’s 30 seconds of sweetness. If I completed the first game 4 times (it was that good!) I hope the sequel will be even better than the first. Don’t let us down EA!

    Enjoy!

  • Fat Princess – PlayStation 3 review
    By on October 30th, 2009 | No Comments Comments

    Fat Princess
    So I finally gave in, purchased and downloaded Fat Princess off PSN because I’ve been eyeing on this game since it was released. I was excited now that I finally got the game but was it worth it? I have mixed reactions about this game. Definitely not as good as I expected though!

    So immediately after downloading and installing Fat Princess, which is basically an action strategy game where there are two sides (red and blue). You can customize your character with different looks and more are unlocked as you progress in the game. The objectives are capturing the princess (capture the flag), death match. There is also a soccer x death match for online as well, this mode is pretty straight forward based on the name. You have 5 classes to choose from – warrior, ranger, healer, dark magician who can drain enemy health and the worker. The workers are necessary, in order to gather wood and minerals to upgrade the different classes’ buildings in order to unlock their upgraded classes. They also responsible for building castle doors and catapults which can launch a group of people to the enemy castle.

    I wanted to get a hang of the game first being playing online so I jumped into the single player game and played its rather short storyline which consists of 7 chapters. It was enjoyable most of the time, specially the death matches. There was one chapter that I thought was frustrating, at least playing with the AIs, the ones which you have to rescue your princess.

    I guess for now AIs are still dumb and cannot act/play like humans. Most of the time I was alone inside enemy castle trying to rescue the princess even though you are allowed to have up to 3 AIs to help you on your side. And most of the time I got killed right on the spot because either the enemy AIs just swamped me or they cake-fed the princess so much I was basically not moving at all, and then swamped by the enemies!

    In terms of graphics, its not Killzone 2 graphics obviously, it is pleasing to the eyes, cartoonish with vibrant colors. I think the blood and gory part is one of the major plus for this game. Whenever there is a battle you know there will be blood and body parts every where which is insanely fun to watch as you chop your way to your enemies!

    Without going into every single detail of the game, I’m sure this game is worth the $16 (+tax) I paid. I think its a pretty good casual game where you want to jump in when you have 30 minutes to spare. Its not perfectly for sure and hopefully we will see some expansions/add-ons in the near future, free download would be nice!

  • If you want an ultra violent and bloody fairytale, Fa...
    By on October 7th, 2009 | No Comments Comments


    I still haven’t bought Fat Princess because I’ve been way too busy to buy new games. Well the real reason is probably because its not a first-day-buy for me. I know its fun, hella fun, but it just isn’t enough to convince me to get it right away. Anyway enough of that. Fairytale Fights might just be good enough to convince me to get this.

    Fairytale Fights, you can partially guess, its about fairytale. There ARE fairytale characters in there, but with a twist. Fairytale Fights, not only does it involve violent action, but we are talking about ULTRA violent and bloody action where your fairytale character are literally chop the enemies into pieces. End result? Blood everywhere on the ground, what makes this even funnier is you can “skate” on the blood! Now that is funny!

    This also feels like a party game, like the Wii kind. Which is a bonus because PS3 and Xbox are both missing some good party games. I’m also putting my bets on this being a downloadable instead of a full $60 game.

    Fairytale Fights will be released on October 27, 2009.

  • Batman: Arkham Asylum – PlayStation 3 demo revi...
    By on August 7th, 2009 | No Comments Comments

    Took me a while to get my hands on the demo for Batman: Arkham Asylum on PSN as I kept on getting error when trying to download it. So I finally managed to get it and I was excited, because this game might actually be a comic-movie-cartoon video game that will not disappoint, unlike the rest of the movie games (ahem….G.I. Joe anyone?). So is Batman: Arkham Asylum worth buying?

    I have mix reactions actually because the demo is rather short, you can easily finish it within 15-20 minutes, if not shorter. Then again it is not a race and you are suppose to appreciate the game by walking around, flying around with your trusty grapple hook. And due to the length of the demo, I’m not sure if I will get bored of some of the features of this game or not. For one the combat system is….ok, animations are smooth but nothing amazing, in my opinion. You basically throw punches, counter your enemies and try to knock them down for good. While hanging upside down or using the glide kick to take out your enemies is fun, I have a feeling its just one of those “its fun while it lasts” kind of thing. On the rather positive side, I do like the fact that you have different choices to choose from for taking out your enemies.

    The detective mode looks interesting as well, you get to check what weapon each person (friends and enemies) is carrying, their status, be it calm or nervous, check where you can fly up using the grapple hook or weak walls where you can blow it up using explosives. Again the demo is rather short so that’s all I got to see and experiment.

    The graphics look amazingly detailed, from the textures of the asylum to the characters that you play and/or interact with, specially the main characters like Batman, Joker and Harley Quinn (her outfit is pretty detailed!) for example.

    Honestly after playing the demo, although I’ve always been a Batman fan, I am really not sure if I should get this right at the release date. And there isn’t a multiplayer mode, which is understandable, this game is at best, a rental for me. Unless you are a fanatic and/or you absolutely loved the demo, I don’t think you should buy it right away, wait for a price drop in about 6 months time or look for a second hand on ebay. I wish the demo was longer, then I would have a better idea. Right now it feels like I’m one of those crooks and left hanging upside down by Batman.

  • Finally another Bayonetta trailer
    By on April 10th, 2009 | No Comments Comments

    After months of waiting, they finally released another in-game trailer for Sarah-Palin-look-alike Bayonetta. This one shows a few more battles with large scale bosses as well as some crazy combo moves and how she can turn into a sexy beast err I mean panther. I am in love with the character designs, not just Bayonetta herself of course! Another thing I like about this game over Devil May Cry is the way the game is presented, with elegant style and music. I don’t mind even calling this game beautiful.

    This game will be out on September 1st, seems like a long wait but I’m sure its worth the wait!

  • Batman: Arkham Asylum – Looks really promising...
    By on March 28th, 2009 | No Comments Comments

    I have been a Batman fan for as long as I can remember. There hasn’t been a single Batman related game released ever since PlayStation 3 and xBox 360 came out, as far as I can remember. But the wait is almost over because based on EBGames, Batman: Arkham Asylum will be released on June 9th, less than 3 months from now.

    To me, after Metal Gear Solid, Batman: Arkham Asylum should be another action + stealth game worth buying. If you have spare change in your wallet, you should also consider getting the collector’s edition because it comes with so much goodies such as: (taken from EBGames)

    - Waynetech Batarang Storage Box
    - 12” In-Game Design Batarang (stand attached)
    - Dr Young’s Journal (50 page full color character encyclopedia)
    - 2 Sleeve DIGI-Pack Including:
         - Game
         - Behind the scenes 5 chapter series DVD, including:
         - Interviews with Mark Hammil and Kevin Conroy
    - Exclusive Collector’s Edition Challenge Map DLC
    - Manual

    As you can see you get a lot more than what you would normally get from other collector’s edition games, for a price of $99.99. For once I am really tempted to get a collector’s edition game, I mean you get a Batarang! Notice it also comes with an exclusive DLC map? I can only guess there will be more DLC maps available in the future.

    Less not forget the game also has some impressive graphics, got to love the highly detailed Batman cape, body armor and the awesome looking Batmobile. Anyway, enjoy this Challenge Room trailer from Gametrailers.
