Going into this game I had my doubts. The original force unleashed was a good game but had blatant issues that kept it from greatness. Now about two years later we get the sequel that fixes a lot of issues I had with the first game but lacks where the original excelled at. The plot to TFU2 seems like it was made to bring a sequel to life to make money. Vader goes to Kamino to clone Starkiller and hunt down the newly formed Rebel Alliance that he helped create. You play as clone 14 or some number around there, all the other previous clones have gone mad and Vader had executed them but for some reason you are different, which is never explained. As the game progresses it is continually told to you by General Kota, of whom youRead more…

Pre-Orders.… a bad idea?
In recent years there has been a major push by publishers, encouraging you to pre-order your games before they are released in stores or online. Is pre-ordering a game really necessary and can it be harmful to you as the consumer? The most common arguments for pre-ordering a title are a.) You don’t ahve to wait in line or the game or even risk not being able to get it on day one of release b.) You will be given a couple special in game items such as extra weapons, pets, or maybe even a map c.) A discounted rate on the game if you purchase the title early. Having said this let’s take a look at some of the reasoning for preordering starting with getting your title on day one. Halo3 for example, was released at midnight at a local Best Buy here inRead more…

Map Pack for Halo: Reach
Halo: Reach will get its first downloadable content on November 30th. “Noble Pack”, as it’s being called, will contain 3 new maps and new achievements worth 250 gamerscore points. Micrsoft gave a little insight to the upcoming maps. Tempest – “Though we may never fully understand these devices, it is not our nature to leave ancient stones unturned.” This abandoned shoreline facility bends both sea and sky to an unnatural purpose, but the ground itself has quickly become another all too familiar battlefield. Though the two opposing symmetrical bases may never reveal their ancient purpose, both now offer makeshift shelter and access to strategic routes perfectly suited for small and large scale skirmishes alike. Tempest supports 8 – 16 players and offers a variety of modes including Free for All, Team Slayer, Team Objective and Big Team Battle. Tempest alsoRead more…

The PS3 debate.….
Well this is the weekend that I will be moving back to the great white north (white as in that cold white shit that falls from the sky) and this is my last post that I will be doing in Pensacola. But I would like to end my weekend post with something of a debate I had while packing up my beloved consoles, thoughts started running through my head; I really like the old design of PS3 more than the new slimmer model. How about you guys? New, old, or both; let me know what you guys think in the comments below and I will see you guys next week.
