Lets just hope its as much fun as Arkham City.
Both Batman: Arkham Origins and Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate are scheduled for a release on October 25th of this year
Some say that the Wii U is dead. That Nintendo should just give it up. That they don’t stand a chance. I could not disagree with them more. I do think after the 3ds launch people are weary of being an early adopter of the Wii U, but once they see what is going to happen with Nintendo and other console makers things will change.
I hear this a lot ” ps4 just shut Nintendo down with the vita cross play.” No they didn’t there is still things the Wii U can do that vita can’t and vise versa. Not to mention how much is it going to cost to have a ps4 and vita together or to buy a Xbox and a tablet for smart glass. I’m willing to bet that just the ps4 and nextbox alone are going to be twice the amount of the Wii U that comes with the game pad. That is to say that the Nextbox is even coming out this year, cause how stupid would it be for Xbox to announce their Nextbox only to put it on store shelves the next month or two. Needless to say I don’t think we will see the Nextbox in 2013, I could be wrong but I don’t think I am.
People hate on Nintendo so much that for years now they said Nintendo is doomed and I don’t need to remind you that what Michael pachter is saying now about the Wii U, he said 2 years ago about the 3ds he just switched the 3ds for Wii U in his talks on Gametrailers.com (which is a site I read). He said the samething about the whole handheld world, and just last month the “Wild gunman” on the 3ds way outsold the iOS and Android versions. I mean for a man who is suppose to be the best in what he does, what has he been right about? I sure would hate to see the worst, and I wouldn’t take any stock advice from this man to save my life. but these are just my opinions and thats all but I’m sure I’m not the only who feels this way.
Im standing around at gamestop, waiting for midnight to hit so i can grab my copy of Bioshock Infinite. Finally, the clock strikes 12am, I’ve already paid for my copy so the guy hands me my copy and I hit the door running. I jump in the car and speed home. I come straight inside. I had already opened my copy on the way home. I sit down at my computer with a soda and a pack of Marlboros’ and pop the disk in. I wait for it to install and it feels like forever. Finally, it loads and I’m ready to play. I commence playing in awe and excitement until dawn.
This game is incapsulating and immersive. Once I started playing, the world around me no longer existed and I found myself in Columbia bearing witness to atrocities in Eden. You find out that Columbia is no modern day Eden, very early on, when you do something very horrible to someone you’ve never met. One thing I wish is that this game had a stats page, like Telltales “The Walking Dead”, where you can see what percentage of people have played the game and what choices they made. I like the fact that the choices you make stick with you throughout the game. Those who have injured their hand knows what I mean.
The gameplay fits the story so well and takes nothing away from it, and while it may not be the best in 1st person shooting, it is fun as hell and very engaging. This game throws themes at you that will not only make you think about history and things that people had to deal with, but also the state of the present, is everything great like we think it is?
If I were to give a score, then I would have to give this game a perfect score. Needless to say, this is a must play. One to share and discuss with every one. As for myself, I’m getting the season pass. Because if irrational games can deliver on the main game, I can’t wait to see what they will do with there DLC.
HOR is a Diablo style hack and grind, that can be played with 1 to 4 people via internet or local play on the 3ds. In HOR you and up to 3 other friends go a journey to awaken a great all powerful god who once protected your town, and by doing so gain greatness and a name that you have longed for. You have 4 characters that you can choose from with their own unique abilities. It has a pretty rad website that you can link to your 3ds and keep track of your stats. You can also earn XP by doing web challenges that you can use in game to get items. There are also a couple of different challenges in game that you can do to earn coins to get items. You have web challenges that are timed weekly and daily and you have the challenges that progress the story of the game and side mission too. Everything you do earns you something, coins or items.So your never feel like your wasting your time for nothing. you level up your characters by hacking and grinding to earn XP and coins you can use to get a butt load of different equipment. there is a online store that players can use game money to buy items you sell and you can trade items to players online in game for money, other items, or both. You can find friends at random or start your alliances to play awaken the god who once protected your city. There are people and place to go to buys items but the majority of your cool stuff will come from grinding or trading. Your can earn different abilities that you can upgrade like a skill tree. When you level up you can spend your points upgrading traits, and when when you equip items it lets you know what you gain and/or lose. So it can be very forgiving and good for first time players as well. HOR can be fun and rewarding if you have the time to put in. Even though this is a mobile game its not one that you can just put a few minutes in here or there you need to be somewhat hardcore with your game time. With that being said it has a hack and slash game play style with many hours spent in grinding. While the music and visuals are great for this game and it looks good in 3d (not great) the game play can get old sometimes. Luckily this game has a strong old school heroes story that, even though seems to have been told a bunch of times, seems fresh and appealing. All in all i really like this game and find my self at times not wanting to put it down or going online can checking profiles and doing challenges. I give this a 4/5 first impression score.
