Having just got my PS3 can say so far.
Spending more time in Home than anything else. Who knew walking around in virtual worlds could be so addicting?
I like Uncharted. Feels like a 90′s take on Indiana Jones.
Will be buying Little Big Planet when funds amount.
On the 360.
LOVE LOVE LOVE Blur demo/beta. I think I’ve just missed a good arcade racer in my life. Will be getting this one.
Not so thrilled with the Lost Planet 2 demo. Maybe I’m too old to shoot people?
Games I wish I had more time for, Super Mario Bros Wii, Madworld.
I just beat Mirror’s Edge, and it’s different than any other video game I’ve played. Although it has it’s hair pulling out moments thanks to some considerably hard jumps, the thrills when it works are worth the struggle. When your running on a rooftop and jumping from building to building, that is where the game really shines.
Here’s a youtube video so you can get the feel for the gameplay.
The storyline is good as well and I like futures like this, where it still looks like our world. Makes it more believable. So I beat it rather quickly and I guess that would be a negative in most people’s books, but Mirror’s Edge is now value priced for both your 360 and PS3 and then there is the added bonus of time trials to keep you busy. I’m surprised EA made this because it stands out as one of the most original games of last year.
And now I have discovered Mirror’s Edge 2d a sidescrolling take on the series and it’s free to play on your computer. It retains a lot of the look of the original game but since it’s 2d I don’t have to worry about motion sickness. And I think it’s the better of the two games. Excuse me while I go play it instead of working on anything important.
Sure there is still two days left of E3 and there is the possibilty of more announcements, but the big three have made their announcements and most everything that’s coming soon is known to us.
I’m excited to see how Microsoft’s Project Natal works and when it will actually come out, but until then here’s what really matters, my ten most wanted games(that haven’t come out yet)
I’m surprised at how many are for Wii, perhaps, i’ll finally be able to dust it off and play something on it.
#1 New Super Mario Bros Wii!
Easily this was my favorite game on the Nintendo DS and I longed for a sequel. Add in four player co-op, and the ability to view those bright happy colors on the big screen and I’m sold. First Day Purchase.
#2 Muramasa The Demon Blade Wii
From the makers of Odin Sphere, Vanilla Ware a beautiful 2-d hack n slash. Of course!
#3 Marvel Versus Capcom 2 Xbox 360 Arcade.
I actually dusted this off on my Dreamcast the other day and it still is so much fun. I can’t wait to take my team of Morrigan, Ryu and Spiderman and kick your butt online!
#4 Wii Sports Resort
The first Wii Sports sold you on the Wii’s potential. This one looks just as fun and you get the wii motion plus as well.
#5 Red Dead Redemption Xbox 360
Heck yeah. I loved the first game, and although I’m not a fan of Sandbox games, I want this to be good so bad. I want to live in Deadwood after all.
#6 Final Fantasy 13 Xbox360
#7 Call of Duty Modern Warfare #2 Xbox360
I can’t believe this is in my list, but my brother has got me hooked and this just looks like a multiplayer haven.
#8 Capcom Versus Tastunuko Wii
Two versus games in one year. I actually played this a year ago on an import wii, and I still have trouble believing the Wii’s processor can move that fast.
I think all my teams will have viewtiful Joe in them.
#9 Little Big Planet PSP
Since I won’t be getting a PS3 anytime soon, this is about as close to Little Big Planet as I can get.
#10 Metroid : The Other M. Wii.
This was the shock of the show to me. Team Ninja working with Nintendo? I’ll be interested to see how it works, and hey it’s Metroid!
Just outside the list.
Lost Planet 2, Bioshock 2, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, (yeah sequels :<)
Prince of Persia was always a good series. The last generation trilogy was one of the better game series. Now combine that gameplay with this new art style and these awesome music trailers and I’m beyond sold. I want.
Geometry Wars 2 is my latest addiction. I believe its the simplicity of the concept rolled into the complexity of the gameplay. It’s an old fashioned quarter muncher from the arcade days, where the more you play, the better you get. And when you die, you just feel the need to start all over again. I enjoyed the first game, but this thing is so much deeper. With five games modes all with their own stiff challenges, Geometry Wars 2, may have me hitting start again, and again, well past my bedtime.
If you buy the EA sports game Facebreaker coming out later this month you can create your own boxer. But why do that when you can play as me. Yep thats me with alot more muscle than I’ll ever see in my life. The lucky creature boxer will be available to download listed under lucky creature once you connect to the EA servers. Boxing games aren’t my thing so I won’t be picking this title up but will someone out there represent me in the virtual world?
That your camera on the ninja gaiden 2 demo is awful. Its like a throback to the playstation one. ruins what could be a great game. but i wont find out. because I cant see enemies who are attacking me. bad bad. and a little lazy. o.k. game rant over.
New Peas page is up. Got the red rings of death on my 360. The UPS guy actually knew what was in the box just by the size. He says “you wouldn’t believe how many of these we are shipping back.” That’s just sad. Hope I get mine back soon. I was in the middle of Halo 3 and Eternal Sonata!
Went out last night to see They Might Be Giants. They put on a really good show and it was nice to see them on campus so I could actually breathe during the show. Had to be up at six for work this morning so Im pretty darn tired. Excuse me while I go play eternal sonata and maybe some lost planet.
