  • I found a Bayonetta exploit, cheat or hack whatever y...
    By on January 10th, 2010 | 2 Comments2 Comments Comments

    So I’ve been playing Bayonetta for a few days now, as I mentioned in my review the game isn’t as easy as I thought it would be. One of the main reason why it is giving me such a hard time is how much damage the enemies can inflict apon you if you miss calculated a dodge. I had, in a few occasions, half my life taken from an enemy’s combo attacks. That is why healing is such an important factor, at least to me, in this game. But you either have to purchase them from Rodin in Gates of Hell or you have to concoct your own using green compounds. The problem with purchasing them from Rodin is you can only have 3 green lollipop and 1 mega green lollipop. If you have already reached the limit, you won’t be able to buy anymore but to concoct your own. Normally they won’t come as often as I wish but I have found a way to get Halos (money), Butterflies (that will replenish your magic) and the three compounds. I am not too concerned about the Halos and Butterflies since they come in quite often. This “exploit”, “cheat” or “hack” does not really help gain a lot of Halos anyway.

    So what is it? Its probably been mentioned already somewhere but I thought I would mention it again. Basically the benches, flower pots or any breakable objects respawn everytime you go from one place and back. For example, going in and out of Gates of Hell will cause a respawn of all the breakable objects when you re-enter the area. If you keep going in and out, you will be able to collect TONS of compounds. I have tested this in and out for at least 5 times and the objects still respawn WITH Halos, Butterflies and the compounds randomly.

    I’m sorry to say I do need this to stock up my healing, attack / defense increasing lollipops.

  • Bayonetta did not disappoint me. Worth the buy!

    Bayonetta
    Bayonetta, a pretty hyped up Devil May Cry style action game was released on Jan 5th. Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to buy it on that day because I went to watch Avatar with my girlfriend, boy was that one of the best movies of 2009.

    Anyway, I went to EB Games the next day but they were sold out, that was a bit surprising because I didn’t expect Bayonetta to be THAT demanding. I went to Best Buy and the PS3 version was sold out and no luck at EB Games again. I finally did get my copy at Futureshop the next day though, phew!

    Bayonetta
    The game hasn’t let me down so far, I still haven’t got bored of the the ultra fast paced battles plus button mashing. I guess that was kind of expected from the beginning (button mashing). I’m not sure if its my lack of skills and patience or is the game hard at some of the sections. I am still having trouble with some of the quicktime events where you have to click the button at that particular moment, not earlier, not later, it has to be exact. I died a couple of times as a result. Some of the battles are pretty hard as well, maybe I need to get better with the dodge.

    Boss battles are pretty epic, one of the reasons why I bought this game. I just love looking at oversized monsters that take up more than half the TV screen. I find them easier to deal with then those in Devil May Cry. Another reason, the Torture Attacks, never cease to entertain me with different violent and bloody damaging moves.

    The graphics are very impressive though I have noticed a few areas with frame rate issues but they are not enough to put me off this game. Buildings give you the impression of their massiveness. The music is pretty good as well, instead of using rock and heavy metal from Devil May Cry, Bayonetta uses Jazz + piano which give this game a feeling of elegance and style.

    Bayonetta

    Aside from the frame rate issue, one major problem with Bayonetta is the amount of loading and the length of each load. I think the developers could have done a better job at the loading aspect. Other than that, there is nothing really to pick on about this game.

    For Devil May Cry fans, this should be a must buy. If you are into ultra fast paced action games, you should give this a try, at least rent it. This game isn’t for those who doesn’t enjoy some button mashing and/or controlling a stylish character. To me, Bayonetta was definitely a worthy game to buy.

  • Final Fantasy XIII OST Limited Edition @ Jan 27 2010
    By on December 31st, 2009 | 3 Comments3 Comments Comments


    Uh oh, looks like I might have to fork out some extra pennies for the multi-cd Final Fantasy XIII Original Sound Track. As usual, the ones who got their hands on some copies have jacked up the price for the Limited edition on ebay for USD $100ish PLUS shipping.

    I searched a bit and found Amazon Japan has it for pre-order for roughly USD $50ish + shipping or the regular version for roughly USD $40ish. If it’s only 10 dollars difference, I would certainly get the Limited Edition for sure. Provided I could get my hands on a copy.

  • Bayonetta sets a new sexy standard

    Bayonetta
    I didn’t have time to check what was new on PSN on the usual Thursday. But when I logged in on Saturday I found two demo games that brought tears to my eyes. One was the violent, funny and bloody as hell Fairytale Fights and the other was another one of the most hyped up action game Bayonetta. The second demo really surprised me as I didn’t expect one in the first place (it is coming out in early January of 2010).

    If you have not heard of Bayonetta, something is wrong with you or you are not into games in the action genre. First thing you will notice is the similarity of Bayonetta and the Devil May Cry series since they are both directed by Hideki Kamiya, who also directed Viewtiful Joe, another action game. After playing the demo I personally think Bayonetta beats Devil May Cry in every way.
    Bayonetta

    First of all, you are not only wielding one gun, you are wielding 2 in both hands and 2 more as part of Bayonetta’s sexy heels (though you can customize your weapons to your liking). The 4 enchanted guns are called Scarborough Fair, . How cool is having guns as part of the heels? Each weapon has its own attacks and because there are so many different weapons to choose from, you won’t be seeing the same moves over and over again as often as in Devil May Cry or any other button mashing action games, Heavenly Sword is one. Bayonetta is a really sexy game, for those who are into those things, you can see the character killing everyone while she also look sexy, which is a great plus for many people that like sexy things as adult material or also toys that you can find if you click here.

    Bayonetta

    Big Bosses! I’m a sucker for big and epic looking bosses. There were two of such bosses in the demo, they were relatively easy to handle. You get to finish them off by summoning “Beasts from Hell”, from her hair and skin-tight suit (where the Partial Nudity in the rating comes from), in bloody ways. Speaking of finishing moves, you can also activate “Torture Attacks” if you have collected enough magic orbs (forgot the proper term). Getting hit will erase some of the magic orbs though so you have to be careful not to get hit.

    Overall the game is VERY fast paced, the demo lasted roughly 15 minutes. I actually played again after finishing it the first time. It was that good!
    Bayonetta
    Graphics are gorgeous, specially the environment. I occasionally paused, used the right analog stick to just look around and appreciate the sceneries. With such a fast paced game, I did not notice any framerate issue at all.

    Music (produced by piano) is also another strong asset for Bayonetta, simply elegant.

    I could go on and on with this game but I will leave the rest for you guys to discover. If my girlfriend, who isn’t that into games, actually likes the game as much as I do. Then it is safe to say we have a winner here. Bayonetta isn’t just a looker, but a real deal. With stylish game play, beautiful graphics and backed by elegant music in the background. Bayonetta is a first day must buy, at least for me. If you haven’t played the demo, please do so, chances are you won’t be disappointed!

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 – Almost perfect...
    By on November 19th, 2009 | 2 Comments2 Comments Comments


    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, one of the most anticipated game this year has been out for more than a week. If I was to summarize the game in two words, I would say its “almost perfect”. Definitely a game worth the full $64.99CAD (+tax) first day purchase with absolutely zero regret.

    The first one, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare has a pretty sweet single player story line with a lot of drama. The sequel’s story line is even more, how should I put it, “messed up” and packed with even more drama. Words cannot possibly describe how good I think it is, you have to buy it and see it for yourself. Its not just the story that got “super-sized” but the characters are also noticably more detailed, at least to me, while the environments look relatively similar to Call of Duty 4.


    This time around, you won’t be blowing up your enemies from above using the AC-130 Gunship but you get to be the gunner of an armored humvee, life boat as well as snowmobile chases.

    You can expect to finish the single player story in about 7 hours, but that is ok since this game is made for multiplayer.

    There are also new and more weapons to choose from (same ones sound different now as well! M4A1 for example). This time even the rocket launcher and stinger missle launcher are available in multiplayer which were only available in the first game’s single player missions. I also love the fact that you have 3 times more ammo (correction: the reason why I got full ammo was due to the Scavenger perk) for your guns and you can carry a secondary and add a gun safe for necessary precaution, but not necessary limited to just a hand gun, such as shotguns, grenade launcher or even a rocket launcher. Though you only get to carry one or two shots from the launchers and no way to reload unless you get the Resupply crate from kill streak perk or the Scavenger perk, which in my opinion, very useful in staying fully equipped all the time.

    Another great addition to Modern Warfare 2 is the game allows you to customize your own kill streak bonuses, from 3 kill streak UAV all the way to a whooping 25 kill streak for the almighty tactical nuke (sorry I’m not THAT good). I would search youtube if you want to see what it looks like, I’ve done the search for you.

    I really like the random care package by getting a mere 4 kill streak, you can pretty much get anything from this, not sure if you can get the tactical nuke from it though! (Funny incident: I killed myself by accident from the crate by crouching right on top of the drop point)


    In one of the kill streak bonuses, you get to be the actual gunner of the attack helicopter. While its fun raining bullets down on your enemies from the sky, I think this one, which you can get from an 11 kill streak, a bit over powered. If you get that and the other team is too dumb to shoot it down then you basically are garanteed 10 to 15+ kills just from this.

    So here’s my quick summary of this fantasy game, if you liked Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, you will certainly like this one, well, most likely. I mean I’m sure you want to know the rest of the story too, and the ending leaves room for Modern Warfare 3, which I cannot wait.

    Hmmm maybe it will be released some time 2011 November? :)

  • Dragon Age: Origins is meant for PC, not consoles
    By on October 23rd, 2009 | 4 Comments4 Comments Comments

    Dragon Age: Origins

    I was really impressed, again, by yet another game – Dragon Age: Origins. I thought this might be the game for me while I eagerly wait for Final Fantasy 13′s release. But sadly after watching this trailer, which I’m guessing its played on a console, lead me down.

    Its not because its got bad graphics or anything. Its the way you fight your battles, which leads to how enjoyable the game play is. I was really, I mean really, annoyed by the fact that you have to pause the game, we are talking about in the middle of battles, in order to assign orders to your party members without getting hit, unless you can micro-manage in real time then that’s a no issue for you. I don’t see how I can enjoy this game when I have to pause every few seconds. I am only speaking for myself because obviously based on some of the comments, some people do not seem to be bothered by this pause-effect. This might not be exactly the same but think of it this way, do you like to watch a movie that pauses every 10 seconds? All of a sudden in the middle of a great battle, the movie pauses, no music, animation just freezes. Will you enjoy that?

    So to me this game is really meant to be played on a PC, then again my PC isn’t probably powerful enough to handle this so that means a no-go for me unfortunately. Guess I have to get Modern Warfare 2, which is a completely different game genre while I wait for Final Fantasy 13 to come out.

  • Operation Flashpoint: DR review
    By on October 14th, 2009 | No Comments Comments

    I was so so so close to getting Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising. Mainly because I wanted something other than Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare for a change. Also, the trailers so far were quite promising as well and it did look realistic, compare to the COD series.

    I’m glad I always troll around Gametrailers.com and read their take on this game before I slap myself for wasting $70 bucks on this disappointing game. You can see the negative points of this game clearly outweights the goods. For one, why does the console multiplayer only support 4 on 4? What were the developers thinking?

    Operation Flashpoint: DR review

    If you are looking for a shoot them up, this isn’t for you. Do give it a shot (I’m sure you can refund it) if and only if you are into realistic war-simulator. Sadly I guess the sequel did not live up to the original Operation Flashpoint and it just won’t even stand close to the soon-to-be-released Modern Warfare 2.

  • Modern Warfare 2 leaked!
    By on August 30th, 2009 | No Comments Comments

    So I found this baby submitted by one of the users on GameTrailers.com. Although its rather short, less than two minutes, and the quality is obviously “cam-quality”. It looks like a chase scene at the beginning and then turns into a fierce gun fight. It does look like watching a movie! Man I cannot wait for this game, about two more months people! TWO more months! Let’s cross our fingers that it won’t get delayed!

    [update]For some reason the embedded code doesn’t work, here is the direct link.
