I gave Art of Fighting 2 a 9 star (changed). x_X
I need to be more careful when I click to see the ratings for a game.
Anyway, to put more beef into this blog entry, I'll give some impressions of the games I've recently took shots for:
w.honestgamers.com/screenshots/8878/Ninja-Clowns.html">Ninja Clowns: Stupid beat em up that's really on the easy side. It tries to be funny, too, but ends up being more creepy. Clowns pop out of the ground, a giant hen attacks by shooting eggs out of her rear, and you lose health if a prostitute puts her hands down your clown pants. There's also a spider boss that turns into a bag of popcorn once you defeat it. The developers were pretty lazy with the backgrounds, since the street backdrop gets used three times.
I CAN'T GET PAST THE SECOND STAGE!!
Not even the might of save states can help me. This game was made by devil worshippers!
Ugh, now I remember how much I hate the upgrading system and how screwed you are if you lose a life or pick the wrong weapons.
Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan War
And again, even though there's one more console game left for the Xbox 360, I'm going to take a break from the series. I don't think I have it in me to do another Ace Combat review so soon. Though, I can't seem to escape air combat games, because After Burner Climax is being released on the 360 this Wednesday!
Seems like Aksys is releasing limited edition versions of all the titles they're publishing these days. They did it with BlazBlue, featuring a soundtrack of 42 songs and a tutorial disc, then again with Record of Agarest War, which comes out at the end of this month, going crazy with that edition..., and now they're doing it with the June release (supposedly) of Deathsmiles, which includes a soundtrack disc and a 360 faceplate (look at the size of the box!).
Well, yesterday was suppose to be the final day for dropping LIVE support for all Xbox 1 games, but it seems to be still going today.
I've played a number of matches of Halo 2's multiplayer for the past two days, and... Well, I'm having a very hard time understanding why some gamers still prefer 2's multiplayer over 3's. 2 has some pretty terrible spawns (putting Lockout on the Big Team playlist is a TERRIBLE idea, btw). The default starting weapon is complete crap, some maps are just bad, and the hit detection/lag is annoying to deal with. I'll admit some of the maps are pretty cool (the Containment map is epic), as well as some minor details, but that's it.
The most enjoyment I've gotten out of the multiplayer so far is when people are talking.
I, too, want to give EmP a heart attack.
