Coulda fooled me, I saw zero advertising for the game. Did anyone here actually get the game? How was it?
Almost didn't write a review for this, but I figured I might as well do one while the game is still fresh in my mind. When I finally did start, it ended up being a pretty irritating review to write. Not because it was hard to write, it was actually pretty easy, but because I really didn't want to give anything away, since the entire thing is one big clue. In the end, I think it works more for people who played the original and know what I'm talking about, but I hope it wasn't confusing for readers that have never played a Portal game before.
Got my Triple Pack copy for the 360 on Thursday, but it wasn't until now that I decided to try one of the three games on the disc: Splosion Man. I've played levels 1-1 through 1-10, and I dig it. It's a very simple game, but it stacks on the platforming situations pretty quick, making you work with your "three explosions per jump" limit. Though, I think they're going overboard with the wall-jumping, making me want to call it Wall Jumping: The Game, instead. It is early, however, and I'm sure there's more to offer.
I also thought I'd get tired of the main character's quirkiness, but his wacky animations are hilariously charming.
I was expecting to witness the worst thing to ever come out within the last 5 years with the way people have been reacting to the movie ever since its release in theaters.
I actually thought it was a nice, violent action movie. Not the greatest thing I've ever seen, but far, far from the worst. Some of the kills in the movie are over-the-top, but at least they weren't the same, lifeless "shoot people and watch them fall over" types you see in a lot of action movies. I guess the only real issue I can grab from the movie is how... the irony... comical the villains, Jigsaw and his brother, got as the movie went on.
The entire time, I was expecting this to be some action movie, and that's exactly what it was.
Dungeon crawlers are not normally my thing, but this was going for $5 new on Amazon, so I got it.
I've played three hours into it, and I'm not sure yet if I like or hate it. So far, it seems like a fairly typical dc, but it has some little tiny things that irritate the crap ot of me. Like saving; I get the quick save aspect that pops up between floors, but I just don't get why you're forced to turn off the system with normal saves when you're in town. It's annoying because you have to go through at least 5 logos, an intro, the title screen, and finally, the load option, to finally get back in the game. It's stupid.
Assault Suit Leynos 2
What the hell, right? I reviewed the other two games, might as well review the Saturn game before my 14 year old Saturn decides to die on me at any moment. Not gonna review Assault Suits Valken 2, even though it's tempting, pretty cheap to get on ebay, and could probably run the disc decently on an emulator. Tempting in that it's a strategy-rpg similar to the Front Mission games. Dunno why they decided to go the route, but it ended up being the last sequel in the series. :|
