Platinum Games and Kojima Productions working together on a Metal Gear game? If you're the kind of person who digs anything and everything campy and crazy, this would pulsate your *bleep* into a diamond carving machine. I mean holy shit, fun and exciting gameplay with some over the top set pieces to go along with an exposition heavy story full of crazy plot twists? Sign me up! Sure, it took a long time and the only reason Platinum Games was even involved was because Kojima had some issues and needed somebody to essentially redo it for him and Shinji Mikami was more than happy to help out, but it did eventually come and with everything at their disposal, I'm sure they've developed a fantastic game, especially since it's based on... ...Raiden? You mean the guy from Metal Gear Solid 2 that people hated because he wasn't Solid Snake? Who wound up becoming a cyborg ninja in Metal Gear Solid 4 and got people loving him and even wanting games based on him because he was doing some sick Matrix shit? Interesting...
There's something gratifying about slaughtering figures from Greek myth by the truckload. It's just a fact of human existence. One day, you're killed in any number of depressingly funny accidents and sent to Hades. There, you learn that you're actually descended from a Greek god that was cast down and forced to become mortal, and that you have a chance to take his place in the pantheon. With the help of your macabre Spirit Guide, your friends, and a couple of guns, you set out to brave the worst of the Underworld and take your place as a god. This is God Mode. Mass Effect 3 was... well, let's not open up that can of worms. However, few can dispute that its multiplayer was simply fantastic. A co-op based third-person shooter with an emphasis on teamwork and customization makes for a very rewarding experience, and that shows in God Mode. It's also a co-op third-person shooter with an emphasis on customization and teamwork, but it's got plenty of its own tricks to set it apart from the obvious and perhaps...
I played Lost Planet 2 with my friends back when it first came out. They had jobs and such and bought the game, but I didn't and I was apprehensive after the train wreck that is the first Lost Planet, so I went with a solid rent instead. I had fun, and I'm having fun with it now, but if I had paid any more than what I did a couple of months ago, I would have been furious. While it may not be great or all that innovative, there's a lot of game here to enjoy if you're able to look past your grievances. Lost Planet 2 has interesting gameplay. It's a third-person-shooter at core, but you have something called thermal energy to keep track of. It was the first game's downfall from what I played of it, but here, it's handled well. Thermal energy is a resource you have to keep track of - if it reaches zero, you'll die. Allegedly, anyway. I've never died from running out in my couple dozen hours with the game. It's also used as ammunition in certain weapons and to repair the VSes (essentially small mechs that...
The Introduction: The Dead Space series perfectly encapsulates my opinion on the seventh generation as a whole – the first Dead Space game, while maybe being a teeny bit scarier than Resident Evil (see also: not at all), still had style and grace in its blend of third person shooting and survival horror. It also helped that it felt like you were playing as Isaac, an engineer who has to kill because he has no other choice; it's them or him. But unfortunately, Visceral Games thought that instead of making a similar game with perhaps a different environment and giving Isaac a more hardened and bitter personality due to his experience on the Ishimura, you instead played as Isaac the action hero inside the I-can't-believe-it's-not-the-Ishumura Sprawl space station. Overall though, Dead Space 2 was a good, if disappointing third person shooter with slight survival horror elements. Both games, I'd recommend that you purchase and play through because they're good games, although the first is vastly superior due...
Must have for any aviation fans out there. Especially for less than $10

Funny thing is I haven't played the game for a few years since my 360`s have all crapped out on me and it never came out for the PS3. I'm getting one fixed or I`ll just buy a bare console just so I can play this $6.36 discount flying game that just so happens to be the best one for the Xbox360 and other systems that I've come across. I`ll always go back to PS1 and PS2 Ace Combat for the nostalgic reasons but this is the best console jet fighter sim I`ve ever played. Over all a 7.5, its not perfect and does leave a lot to be desired but does scratch the itch WAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYY better than HAWXs or AC for the 360/PS3 ever could....
There isn't a whole lot in the turn based strategy genre in this generation... on consoles, at least. Sure, Vandal Hearts: Flames Of Judgment existed and turned out to be a good game, and XCOM: Enemy Unknown was a good game too, but... I think that's about it, and no, I don't count Disgaea 3 and 4 because quite frankly, 1 is the better game in terms of story and characters. So when Skulls Of The Shoguns unleashed itself to the unwashed masses in the form of a trailer back in 2010, it got reactions and some people were psyched. But then it got delayed until January of 2013. At least it got the Deus Ex: Human Revolution treatment of teasing us for a few years before release and not the Final Fantasy Versus XIII/Duke Nukem Forever treatment of seemingly never getting *bleep*ing finished. It's not quite as good as Deus Ex: Human Revolution (and before anybody uses the apples vs oranges argument... well, maybe I prefer a bit of that juicy, succulent apple over eating that average looking orange) and in terms of...
Continuing the events of Halo 2, Halo ODST will bring you back to the streets of New Mombasa, as well as areas you've never seen before. After the Covenant invasion of Earth, the UNSC deploys is Helljumpers to New Mombasa. The Helljumpers are a dedicated team of reconnaissance marines, trained for missions regular marines wouldn't dare to do. The Helljumpers earned such a nickname, by being deployed from space in Drop Pods, a mission that can prove to be their last. A large slipspace rupture occurs just outside of the city, scattering the team to various spots of the city. The protagonist, also known as Rookie, must locate the rest of his team, some members of the team include • Buck; the charmer. Often quick to joke, this trooper is not to be taken lightly. To his teammates, he is a strong leader, and is known as the best of the best. • Dutch; heavy weapons specialist, an an important asset to the Helljumpers. Although he is quite skilled, he often leads himself into insurmountable odds. •...
Halo Reach takes you back to the very beginning of the Covenant/Human struggle. The scene is set on Reach, a large human colony that is home to large research facilities and other various projects, which remain classified. The story takes off with the introduction to 'Noble Team', a squad of Spartan Specialists, with abilities and skills of their own. Here are the names and backgrounds of the Spartans: • Commander Carter-A259; the leader of Noble Team, a commander in the UNSC forces, Carter has lead Noble Team into many fights, and is considered a fearless leader. • Lieutenant Commander Kat-B320; second in charge of Noble Team. She is tech savvy, and has quite a fiery temper. Smart, agile, and a great fighter, she is an irreplaceable asset to the team. • Chief Warrant Officer Jorge-052; the third member of Noble Team, and a heavy weapon connoisseur. Often referred to as 'Big Man', Jorge is a tough, headstrong Spartan. Wielding a Turret, he's a dangerous foe to the Covenant. • Warrant Officer...
Imo the game was garbage. Some people liked it and some didnt. Liked how you spoke about metal gear coming at the end out of nowhere. For a game to be called metal gear, it had no meral gears in it except for that random one.
can't you like adjust the sensitivity of the aiming controls so that it doesn't seem so clunky?
It's fun, but it's still not really anything special. It's a middle-of-the-road average game in my eyes. Fun, and I happily recommend it if you can find it cheap, but completely average. Thank you for your input, though! It's always good to get criticism that makes me look back at myself.
