As many people have probably already read and heard about, Xbox Live along with Sega is planning on releasing many classic Dreamcast games including Sonic Adventure, Crazy Taxi, and many other of greatest Dreamcast games ever.
Didn't have a Dreamcast at the time? Lucky for you, you will now have the opportunity to play some of the greatest games ever released. Most people will agree that Sonic Adventure was one of the last truly great Sonic games to be released before the so-called "downfall of Sonic." Recently at E3, I got the opportunity to play this game on the Xbox 360. It had been years since I had played this game - but it was still just amazing as I had remembered it. While the graphics hadn't been enhanced or re-mastered in anyway to ma…Read more >
Yesterday while at E3, I took the opportunity to give the new edition of the UFC game a chance. UFC 2010 definitely lives up to its' predecessor, while making a few improvements. For beginners, the character models seemed vastly improved and in many ways more realistic representations of the fighters they are modeled after. Also, the environments and the cage itself seem more crisp and vivid. Another thing that I noticed was that the lighting effects were vastly improved, the shadows on the fighters seemed to better portray how a spotlight would accurately display off the fighters.
I played the Xbox 360 version of this game, which I had only briefly played the previous version before. However, the controls were extremely simplistic and easy …Read more >
There has already been lots of hype in regards to the new Medal of Honor game. The one that is set to re-launch the series. While at E3, I got the opportunity to get my hands on this game.
How did the game stack up? The game stacked up pretty well. If first person shooter games are what you are into - then this game will definitely solve your fix. In comparision to other first person shooters like Call of Duty the pace seemed to be quicker. It also became apparent very quickly that unlike in Call of Duty, teamwork seems to play a lot stronger of an importance here. The level that I got to play in took place in a city with lots of objects to hide behind - it was important to definitely take cover and precaution before running out after an en…Read more >
As many people may or may not know, I am a big fan of professional wrestling of all kinds - the Japanese purosesu, the English style, mat wrestling, or Mexican lucha libre. It should come as no surprise to anyone that I am always curious to know what is going on with wrestling videogames. At E3 - I got the opportunity to play two wrestling games and see another one in action.
Let's begin with Smackdown vs. Raw 2011 which is scheduled to be released on October 26, 2010. Smackdown vs. Raw has been criticized for years as being the same flawed game, however, when I played it the character animations were smooth, the wrestling manuevers were pulled off well. The only problem that I had was at the beginning trying to learn the tie up pose. Also in…Read more >
Not being a Harry Potter fan myself, I didn't really expect that I would take the opportunity to play this game. However, I saw that no one was currently playing the game and since it was open I figured that I would give it a shot.
In the demo that I played, I started out in an area where I first learned about the basics of the spells. I had some difficulty in knowing which spells did what since I wasn't familiar with the Harry Potter lore, however, I'm sure that anybody who is picking this game up for the first time could quickly learn which spells are the most effective. From there I proceeded to kill some of the enemies, which I was told by the guy running the game that they were the easiest enemies. Targeting of the enemies gave me some…Read more >
