BioShock Infinite – A quick review.

Bioshock-Infinite-delayed-again-console-yourself-with-these-screenshots-1

UPDATE- I just need to add. Ok, it’s pretty awesome.

OLDER- Ok Ok. I guess I should review the new BioShock Infinite.  But ala NinjaJay let me first throw out a DISCLAIMER.  The disclaimer is this: I have a job, I sleep at night, and the next time I finish a game the first night I own it will be the first time (in like a decade.)  So I want to add that I don’t think this is a very thorough review. But it is a review.  (I’ll prolly end up loaning the game to NinjaJay for the full review.)

That being said, I have to say the visuals I’ve encountered have been pretty cool.  Now, it’s no secret that I play a lot of Battlefield 3.  And those are kickin’ graphics.  I mean really, what else is there to say.  But these are different and just as compelling in their own way...

So, where are the zombies and my sniper rifle?

Just saw this and (I hate to say it) wasn’t that impressed.  But maybe playing it is waaaay better than watching someone else play it.  On the other hand, add a little lazer tag crossover action, or paintball and maybe we have a winner.

Gears of War: Judgement Demo, First Judgement

!!!! DISCLAIMER !!!!

This is a quick review of a demo so not all aspects of the game will be covered in this review.  Also, this game, for those who don’t know, has a fair amount of violence and is definitely not for kids.

I downloaded the demo, and I played it, and it’s cool enough, I guess.  The thing that gets me is that they got rid of horde mode for this latest edition and I can already see it is getting old, whereas, for me, horde mode never did.  Look, I like rush game modes as much as the next Battlefield player, but no horde mode in a Gears of War game is just crazy.

I really don’t know if this game is good enough or has enough replay value to buy without a horde mode but I will reserve my final judgment for when I get around to playing the full game...

The Best of Xblig: Episode 2: Reloaded

Here we go for another exciting Best of Xblig article, and this week we are looking at a game that has given me many hours of joy. Murderminers–sounds like one of those Minecraft Xblig clones, right?

Well, Murderminers is more than that.  It it like if Minecraft (Xbox360, PC, Phone) went out to a bar and met a dashing gent called Halo (PC, Xbox), and then they had a few drinks, went home and had shameful, drunk sex.  Nine months later what you would get is Murderminers.  This game is kind of an odd bird, it’s not really a mining game but it’s not really just a FPS.  It’s really a perfect blend of those two genres.

If you enjoy the fast-paced action of the first Halo, this game is for you...

Dead Space 3 review: Um, yeah, okay

!!! Disclaimer !!!

Before I begin I have to tell you I am reviewing the Xbox 360 version of the game.  Also, due to EA’s online pass requirement exceeding my review budget of a used stamp and dead moth, I did not spring for the online pass so this will only be about the single player mode.  Just keep that in mind, even if the multi-player is hella fun.  

Dead Space 3 (PS3, Xbox360, PC)  has a really great face and a winning personality.  I will add that I really wanted to like this game. It has all the things I like in videogames: great graphics, crazy sci-fi story, you get to shoot cult members in the face, zombies (kind of), and a trailer with a Phil Collins song.  All that should equal a win, right?

No, not exactly, because I was not having fun while playing it...
