“The Last of Us” game…

Well, as some of you may have already saw, I have finally bought the “Last of Us” game for the PS3. It’s another Post-Apocalyptic story; however, it is not really a zombie game. The monsters you see in the game aren’t zombies, they are infected people. It’s kind of like the “Walking Dead” and “Dead-Island” a little bit.

This game was very hard to find. I wanted to get this game right when it came out but it’s been sold out everywhere for a long while. I’m sure this game is still sold out everywhere. I just got real lucky when I saw one copy sitting on the shelf at Best Buy so I had to grab it right away or I’ll never see it again. If this game is being sold out everywhere for a while now, it must be breaking records in sales.

It’s a great game though. I’m getting pretty far in it. Playing it on the hard level. Yes, this game is very difficult. It can get very frustrating too.

The thing I don’t get is, what’s everyone’s fascination with post-apocalyptic worlds??? I just think everyone wants to know what it’s like to live like that. What if the world was done and there is nothing around anymore. Nobody wants to believe something like that can happen to us but it can. Sure, there is no such thing as zombies or infected people but what if something dangerous happens from outer space that is going to wipe us out? Like maybe an asteroid hit or something. I’m sure people can survive in a post-apocalyptic world but if you think living a life like that would be fun, come on. Are you serious? Don’t believe the silly stories they tell in the post-apocalyptic world of entertainment such as video games, movies, and TV shows.

If we survived a post-apocalyptic world… it’ll be extremely dangerous and you probably wouldn’t live a long time either. Hell, maybe infected people can really happen somehow but don’t always think it’ll be fun going around trying to kill them if it really happened on Earth. This could be a fun topic to talk about in another post but…

… back to the game… it’s a badass game and I’m having a blast with it. The characters of Joel and Ellie are pretty cool. It’s a great story and the gameplay is fun. I’ll give the game a full detailed review when I’m done.

I don’t buy too many games for the PS3, only the ones that I think that are gonna be good, the ones that get the good reviews. PS3 games are pretty pricey and I want to make sure the purchases are worth it.

Report: Kiefer Sutherland will voice Solid Snake for “Metal Gear Solid 5” video game!!!

This is pretty cool and interesting so this is worth posting! Kiefer has agreed to voice, Solid Snake, for “Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain”. Solid Snake is one of the most iconic characters in video gaming history. While it’s kind of sad that David Hayter won’t be voicing Snake in this game, I can go with Kiefer as the character. I’ve always thought Kiefer reminded me of the Snake character of “Metal Gear Solid”. Kiefer never voiced a video game before, I don’t think — so this is interesting. Really looking forward to this one.

The “Metal Gear Solid” games are pretty sweet. I only played “Metal Gear Solid 4”, I haven’t played the first 3 yet but want to. Even though I haven’t played the earlier Metal Gear Solid games, the Metal Gear Solid – HD Collection is coming out for the PS3, June 12th. I’m definitely gonna be buying that so I’ll play the earlier MGS games then. These games are so fun to play ’cause stealth is fun. Ya know, “stealth”, you have to hide and you can’t get caught.

Dead Space 3

So, “Dead Space 3”, comes out this coming Tuesday. I really want to get this game, but I need to play the 2nd one, which I haven’t yet. I played the first Dead Space game, and it was really amazing. Probably one of the best games ever made, in my opinion. Maybe they get better as they go along. I just bought “Dead Space 2” for $20 today, so I can catch up with the series. The Dead Space games are really great. The best survival game out there. It’s a mix of horror, science fiction and action. The story of Isaac Clarke is phenomenal stuff. Looking forward to playing, “Dead Space 2”, hopefully this weekend.

I haven’t been video gaming much at all lately. It’s time to get back into it, I think. Video gaming is one of my favorite hobbies other than music, movies, and reading.

Cool Video: Could this be the best Tomb Raider game ever???

I have been playing “Tomb Raider” games, for years. I fucking love them! It’s not only because I have a crush on a female video game character, Lara Croft, is a hot piece of ass for sure, but there are more important reasons why these games rule! It’s because the stories are awesome. Plus, I love going around solving puzzles, and the acrobatics of Lara is just mind blowing. I love how she is able to climb really high places and discover things that are unbelievable. These are incredible games. While I do think the last Tomb Raider game, “Tomb Raider: Underworld” was a beautiful game, I think this one is going to be even better. I sure can’t wait for this game to come out. I will get it for sure.

Speaking of video games, I haven’t been playing much games hardly at all lately. Probably because I spend so much time playing guitar more. I should get back into video gaming, though. I need to get back into, “Skyrim”, which I still have. I love video games, sure, I just don’t spend  hours and hours gaming all day like most kids do. I only play video games, when I get really really bored.

Report: Lucasfilm announces, “Star Wars 1313” video game…

Yesterday, Lucasfilm revealed some news about an upcoming new Star Wars video game, titled, “1313”, coming soon to your video game consoles. They didn’t say what consoles the game is going to be available on, probably all of them I would think. They also revealed an exclusive screen shot of the game, pictured above. The game is supposed to target the longtime fans of, Star Wars, not the new fans. The game takes place on the planet Coruscant, and I believe you play a bounty hunter in it.

Hopefully this game will be much better than the “Force Unleashed”, series. I did like, “The Force Unleashed”, series, but they were too short and easy. Hopefully, “1313” will be a long game and hopefully, it’ll be challenging to play too.

See the game’s official facebook, here.

Game Review: Dead Island

Today, I finally finished the game, “Dead Island”. It was a pretty long ass game too. A lot of missions and side quests you have to go through.

The game is taken place in a fictional island named, Banoi, which is off the coast of Papua New Guinea. You play 4 different characters in the game: Xian Mei, Sam B., Logan, and Purna. You can play up to 1 – 4 players, in the game. The character I picked was Purna, the black woman who specializes in guns. I played by myself in the game, because I have no one else to play the game with. You start off in the Palms Resort Hotel, the night after the hotel party and then the island have been taken over by zombies. The Island of Banoi is meant to be a hot vacation spot for tourists, but it is not so hot anymore when there are zombies around.

This is not just a first person shooter, it’s also a role playing game. You don’t have to go through all the side quests but the main quests are the main part of the game, you must go through. A lot of people complain that this game doesn’t have much weapons and guns to choose from. I think the reason for that is, because when you’re in a zombie apocalypse, they want to make it seem realistic & believable. After a zombie apocalypse, there’s nothing much left anymore. Everything is pretty much all gone, and that includes things to survive with. You must go around and find that stuff yourself. So it makes a lot of sense to not have a lot of weapons in this game. They want to make sure if you can fight zombies and survive with very little items. It’s part of gaming and they want you to have skill.

There is plenty of gore throughout the game and it can get pretty nasty at times. Plus, the game can get pretty scary and creepy as well. This has gotten mixed reviews. It’s another one of those love or hate things, but despite all the negative reviews on this game, I thought this game was absolutely amazing. The game was very addicting. I couldn’t stop playing it. A lot of people said the game play had problems and said it was boring, but really? I had an absolute blast fighting zombies. The game can be a bitch, and frustrating. You like playing those games where you can get mad at and throw your controller to the floor so many times? Well this game will do that to you.

There were a few slight problems, however, I didn’t like how they did the mapping. They need to improve the mapping more ’cause it was confusing. Plus, the game was kind of laggy and glitchy at some spots. Other than that, this was a great game. It had a good story, the characters were very well voiced.

I think this is one of the best games of 2011, of course, that opinion could change when I start, “Batman: Arkham City” next which I will start tonight. I also still need to get “Battle Field 3” and “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3” sometime in the future as well. There’s a lot of new games for the PS3 I want to get. It’s hard to catch up with them all. Games are pretty pricey, so I play one at a time.

Game Review: “Deus Ex: Human Revolution”

I just finished, “Deus Ex: Human Revolution”, one of the newer games released for the PS3 not too long ago. I became interested in this game by all the great reviews this game was getting online. So I figure, I would buy it myself and give it a try.

I never heard of the Deus Ex game series before, so I didn’t realize that this is the third game of the series. “Deus Ex: Human Revolution” is actually a prequel of the first game, “Deus Ex”. I think the reason I never heard of the “Deus Ex” series because the first two games were PC released only games, I believe.

“Deus Ex: Human Revolution” is about a man named, Adam Jensen, who was a former police officer and now he is a security guard working for Sarif Industries. Sarif Industries has been attacked by terrorists, and Adam is forced to get surgery to put mechanical augmentation into his body. He’s not exactly a robot or an android, he’s actually human but the mechanical augmentations helps humans survive. He was ordered by Sarif, the owner of Sarif Industries to go investigate the attack and hunt down the ones responsible for the attack.

The game is a mix of a role playing game and first person shooter. It has different styles of game play. There is, “Combat”, “Stealth”, “Hacking”, and “Social”. “Stealth” is that you must hide from guards, getting to a certain location you need to go to without getting spotted. If you get spotted by a guard, he will call for backup and they’ll try to find you. “Hacking” is when you hack into a computer to read e-mails, look through security cameras, break into rooms, etc. “Social” is when Adam is talking to a character, you get to choose what to say yourself.

To explain what augmentations are more, they are technological modifications that gives you superhuman abilities. The game is very futuristic looking in a cyberpunk world.

On with my thoughts on the game, I was very impressed with it. I think this is the best new game, I played so far in 2011. My only complaint, is that the game play graphics aren’t that great. It still made you feel like you were playing a PC or a PS2 game, but the cut scene graphics were better. Another complaint I have is that the bosses were a bit too easy.

Other than that, I had a blast playing the game. The game play was so much fun and addicting. I just couldn’t stop playing it. I loved stealth. When you first start to play the game, you’ll get confused and think it is really hard at first, but keep playing. You’ll get better and get the hang of things as time goes along.

I was most impressed with the story. The story was pretty masterful, and I hope Hollywood does a movie on this series. I also hope the gaming industry would re-release the first two “Deus Ex” games so we can catch up on them. The Adam Jensen character was one of the coolest video game characters created. I thought this game was really good. Check it out.

Tomorrow is a big release day!!!

Two HUGE releases are set for tomorrow. Yes, the “Superman – The Motion Picture Anthology” comes out on Blu Ray (It’s for Blu Ray only, the new “Superman” set won’t be available for DVD, I don’t think) and “Duke Nukem Forever” video game both hits the shelves tomorrow.

Yes, I plan on getting both of these. I will get the “Duke Nukem” game first sometime this week.

I do plan on getting the “Superman” Blu Ray set but I’m going to wait for several weeks to save up cash for it, ’cause obviously the “Superman” Blu Ray set is very expensive. I really want it really fucking badly though ’cause you all know that I’m such a die hard Superman fan. The Superman set looks fantastic. The Superman set doesn’t only have the 5 Superman films which includes Bryan Singer’s “Superman: Returns”, it also has a bunch of Superman animated films and a few documentaries. Plus I heard the sound and the picture of the 5 films is way better than regular DVD. I’m so definitely getting the Superman set sometime, not right now though.

I’m excited for “Duke Nukem”. Glad the release date is staying for June 14th and not being pushed back anymore. The game is finally here! I fuckin’ love “Duke Nukem”, man. Used to be obsessed with the older games back when I was in high school. Used to play the older games on the PC for hours.

The new “Duke Nukem” game will probably sell pretty well. So will the new Superman Blu Ray set.I am noticing that Blu Ray discs are becoming way more popular than regular DVD’s. DVD sales are dropping while Blu Ray sales are going up. I would like to start a Blu Ray collection and buy more but they are pretty pricey. I want to get the Superman Blu Ray so maybe that’ll be the start of my Blu Ray collection. I do have a few Blu Rays. The only Blu Ray discs I have in my movie collection are “WWII in HD” and “Memento – 25th  Anniversary”. I could buy all my favorite movies on Blu Ray and sell the same film on DVD to get rid of it.

I’m just waiting for the prices on the Blu Ray discs to drop down. The prices will drop, the more popular Blu Ray gets, just give it time. It will happen.That’s what happened with DVD when DVD first came. DVD’s were very expensive when they were first invented but DVD prices dropped the more popular they get. Same will happen with Blu Ray.

Cool Video: “Star Trek” video game trailer is now online!!!

Star Trek the Videogame trailer has surfaced the web today, brought to you by IGN. As expected, the game looks impressive. Yes, the trailer does show game play footage from the game.

Hopefully, it’ll be a long game and won’t be too easy to play. I hate those kind of games when you get excited for something, the game turned out to be too short and too easy to finish.

Cool Video: “Batman: Arkham City” game demo viewable online!!!

On Spike TV’s “All Access Live”, they were the first to introduce the game demo for “Batman: Arkham City” the sequel to “Arkham Asylum”. In this demo, you can see game play footage and storyline scenes where they show Catwoman and Two Face. “Arkham City” looks way better than the first game as expected. I can’t wait for this game to come out now.

There are quite a few games coming out this year that I’m looking forward to: “Duke Nukem: Forever” (which comes out next Tuesday), “Dead Island”, “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3”, “Resistance 3”, and “Batman: Arkham City”.

Enjoy the footage below.
