October 15, 2009 at 12:32 am (Video Games) (, , , , , , , , , , )

Hey hey bloggers! well well it is already October and lot’s of games from the list are already out or are a few days from being released. Have you got your wallets prepared for all this purchasing avalanche? Hope you do, these games are worth.

Assassin’s Creed 2 (PS3, XBOX 360, PC)

Well this game speaks for itself. With a whole new location, el romanche e la paccione de la italie is cutted sharp by the new hero; Ezio Auditore. A new phantastic gameplay, improved characteristics and customizable items.

All these with the most pleasant company of distinguished allies such as Loenardo Da Vinci. Really a must have with all its letters. Wait for it, just a month or so to go, you won’t regret it I’m sure.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 (PS3)

Another great title from these well known franchise. And now, it makes use of the six axis controler for a very “bouncy” gameplay. Don’t get it? well I wouldn’t like to talk deep about this and leave the rest of the game untouched. But since you all asked so nicely, here is the video explanation, look what happens when you move the controller.

Well, after that, back to the real game. Graphics are amazing, they have lots of detail and color. Plus a multiplayer action mode, 3 playbable characters and some number of enchantements that would make a good reason for replaying the game. A really nice choice of an action filled game with the sharpest swords holded by beautiful ninjas ;).

Dissidia Final Fantasy (PSP)

Finally, the every Final Fantasy wet dream come true. Every main hero and every main villian from Final Fantasies come in this great big battles between good and evil, or harmony and caos. This game, more than just being the Smash Bros. of Square Enix’s Final Fantasy saga, offers a very interactive gameplay, upgrades and very impressive cinematics and attacks from each single character.

Besides, each character is included with his/her true way of being, weather it is to be a jumpy happy fighter or a quiet and quick fighter. It’s truly a game that must be on every gamer’s PSP répertoire.

Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines (PSP)

AssassinsCreedBloodlines

What happened to our good friend altair after Assassin’s Creed  finished? Well this might have some answers. You might think, an Assassin’s Creed game on PSP? Well in fact it is amazingly good for the platform. Besides, this game comes with the sequel of Altair after Assassin’s Creed main story, and probably, gives of a few clues for the upcoming game of Assassin’s Creed 2.

What sounds even better is the compatibility this game will have with AC 2. Sorry Xbox 360 users, but DLC for this platform is almost a sure thing two. For what concerns the PSP and PS3, there will be a couple of features which will give the player weapons from onw game to another, treasures and some other stuff. Be sure to get it, even more if you will get AC 2 for PS3.

Batman Arkham Asylum

Finally, since a very very long time, a Batman title that really makes up for the name. Located on the craziest, weirdest, and most dangerous place on Gotham city, this Batman adventuure takes him to face some of his most memorable enemies. Aside from the amazing graphic design, this game comes with a great gameplay. Stunning moves and gadgets that make of Batman the most badass detective of all time.

There’s been some free DLC for this game, thus the PS3 comes with an extra game mode in which you get to wack police guards as the Joker, who by the way, is the most badass clown of all time.

GTA IV The Ballad of Gay Tony (Xbox 360 DLC)

ballad-of-gay-tony

Well this isn’t exacly a stand alone game unless you get the GTA IV Episodes from Liberty City disc, which will have both DLC; The Lost and the Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony. Which ever the way you want to get this game, you gotta get it. The second DLC for one of the greatest games of all time. With colorful lights, dancing, gay talking and other new features for this awesome game.

Although this DLC may not last for as long as the original story, the new features and the story are worth the play. Besides, if you haven’t downloaded The Lost and the Damned, you can have both DLC in a disc, saving you the downloading time or even the internet connection if you don’t have one for your Xbox 360.

Well bloggers, this is the main list of game you have to have till the end of the year. Save up your money, buy a new chair of sofa cause your butt is going to be put for a looong time 😛

Enjoy!

Must-have games from August to the end of the year (part 1)

September 20, 2009 at 1:35 pm (Video Games) (, , , , , , )

Hey there bloggers! Long time since I wrote something. Mostly because of lazyness I admit, anyway lets get to it again shall we?

Ok, you know the topic; one of the most important ones of the blog: video games. But today it’s not just any way, but my list of prefered games recently out on the maket and those which are yet to come. Well, here a brief description of eachgame on the list.

Muramasa: The Demon Blade (WII)

muramasa-the-demon-blade1

Wonderful graphics, an entertaining gameplay and phantasy old Japan style is all what we need to enjoy this game. With a huge varietyon weopns and two characters to play with this game proves to be a nice selection for this month or to play on weekends.

A must have for those who enjoy slashing countless enemies all day round.

The Beatles Rock Band (PS3, XBOX 306, WII)

the-beatles-rock-band

Do I have to explain myself more? i’ll put it easy for you; Grab a bowl, pour 3 spoons of Rock Band and 4 cups of The beatles and voilà: the best theme for a musical game. Just buy it, you’re gonna like it. If you did not, well… nice to actually not meeting you :p

Nah just kidding. But hey, if you don’t have a rockband, or if you prefer a guitar hero over rockband, try this one, you’re gonna love it.

Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story (DS)

bowsers_inside_story

What else could be More amazing than defeating you’re arch rival from the inside? Well this time the DS bring a new Mario and Luigi title. Now your foe somehow swallows Mario and Luigi without exploding,  but these guys aren’t happy with just being digested by bowser, but they have to cause all sorts of trouble inside this half turtle- half mutant (not teenager, not ninja).

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (PS3)

uncharted2-hero

Action packed game and sequel to the first Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. Drake now returns for more tomb raider-like action. Graphics look great and there’s a lot of detail on the environments. More puzzles, more shooting, more action to come.

Dragon Age: Origins (PC, PS3, XBOX 360)

Dragon-Age-Origins-Picture

Personally, after The Elder Scrolls IV, I have the huge need of another game like this. Hopefully, Dragon Age Origins will be up for the task of replacing such a wonderfull game. Dragon Age Origins shows a big world full of customazible stuff for character, besides exploring and nice graphics. Lets see what happens and hope for the best.

Demon’s Souls (PS3)

demon's souls pic

Another game I expect to be up to the task. Looks great, higly customizable and of course, huge dragons you’ll have to take down. Lets see what happens with this game too. Up till now the game looks great, although it hasn’t had any huge publicity despite its soon delivery to stores (October 6, 2009). Guess it’s not a long wait to find out what this game s’got for us.

Well bloggers stay tunned for the second part of thi list. Save up lots of money to buy all this wonderful looking games and for the all new PSP Go, which is not exacly a game but seems like a nice portable device.

See ya later, take care!

Retro-Time Attacks

July 13, 2009 at 2:45 pm (Retro, Video Games) (, , , )

Hey people from Indie-retro I’m a new addition to this blog. Now I’ve got my glasses back I can begin writing for you. Expect retro thingies and some reviews especially book-reviews and some random blogging from me. So let’s get this post done.

I hope most of you had a childhood full of video games just as I did. And the games I love the most form my days of early gaming are the first three installments of the Super Mario Bros. Series. And I remember it took me a lot of time and effort to finish any of those games. So when several years ago I found out about the time attack videos of these games I went crazy. I write this post with the idea of remembering those games and their time attacks, of course I did none of them I just took them from youtube and I’m not even sure that they are the fastest time attacks.

Super Mario Bros.

Super Mario Bros. 2

Super Mario Bros. 3

I hope you liked them. Please comment.

Michael Jackson’s video games

June 27, 2009 at 6:35 pm (Humor, Video Games) (, , , )

Well we all know about the recent loss to to the music industry. But instead of being sad and all, lets remember him by the best of him. We liked his music and dancing, we also like vid games… you connect the dots? That’s right!

Michael Jackson had his way though video games too. The most memorable one, based on his move too: Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker.

From this game that Sega developed I gound two versions. One appearantly belongs to the arcade version. Have a nice time remembering a nice fella in a now forever to be remembered video game.

First video belongs to the normal version. Second to the normal version. Enjoy!

Assassin’s Creed II

April 17, 2009 at 1:00 pm (Video Games) (, , , , , , )

Ok now, when I first heard of the teaser trailer I was really excited to hear this game was already under development. Last week I believe or a couple of days ago, rumors that some game details were leaked became very strong. Still, some of these wait to be confirmed but finally, the very first trailer of the game was released.

The game takes place during Renaissance – Italy. Our new hero assassin’s name is Enzio Auditore de Firenze, child of a noble family which he loses due to conflicts between families. Supposely this character will be able to use a larger set op wepons, like a hammer, two types of swords, two mini blades, maces, axes and a halberd.

maycoverstory

Among the new activities that can be performed in the game, Enzio will now be ablo to swim, besides the already known and improved climbing and horse riding. It is said that there will be a time where the character will be able to fly using Da Vinci’s flying machine. There will be now 16 types of missions, but two of the original Assassin’s Creed will be dismissed; eavesdropping and pickpocketing. Also, day and night cycles will be included.

Some details which I found quite interesting are the appearances of historical characters and landmarks such as Da Vinci’s workshop, Caterina Sforza, Niccolo Machiavelli and Lorenzo de Médici, which is said to be object of an assassination attempt.

However, Game Informer Magazine will confirm factually all these rumors and more on its upcomming May issue. I guess we’ll have to wait for it to learn more about this great sequel.

Here is the first video of the game. Enjoy!

My childhood favorites part 1

March 24, 2009 at 2:52 pm (Anything, Humor, movies, Video Games) ()

Weren’t our childhood the best part of our lives? Ah those golden days. Well I found myself remembering those good old days, my toys, cartoons and movies I liked. Once about 11 or 12 years ago, I saw  on TV 3 consecutive movies which became my favorites up to that day; Super Mario Bros, Double Dragon and Street Fighter. As you may know I love video games, so when I first noticed there actually existed movies about video games and best of all, games that I had played, well, I was stunned.

So, today I bring to you the trailer of the Super Mario Bros Movie, directed by Annabel Jankel and Rocky Morton, with actors and actresses: Bob Hoskins (Mario), John Leguizamo (Luigi), Dennis Hopper (Kind Koopa), Samantha Mathis (Princess Daisy), Mojo Nixon (Toad).

Gamers Blood Drive… for the community

March 23, 2009 at 9:20 pm (Anything, Video Games) (, , , , )

This is for all those who think that gamers have no sense of giving back to the community. Well some of them may not, its true, but this time they proved that gamers will kindly cooperate and help the community. Of course, they are recieving an incentive for this, but anyway, this looks to be a good way to encourage people to donate blood.

Check out the Gamers Blood Drive sponsored by Capcom.

By the way, for our friend and contributor Rhayader; you may want to take a look at sec 0:52, seems like you’ve finally found you’re long lost brother. 😛
