Unleash Mediocrity.….

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…

Dungeon Siege III

This seemed to slip throught the cracks this year.  I did­n’t even know about it until I acci­den­taly stum­bled upon it while brows­ing through Steams game store.  Dun­geon Siege III is going to be released for the Xbox, PS3 and PC.  I was a huge fan of the orig­i­nal game and look for­ward to this one.  Below is a trail­er of the upcom­ing release.  What do you guys think?  Are you look­ing for­ward to this game as well?

Come get you protest on.…

Hey every­one I am final­ly back on the site after a lit­tle mov­ing hia­tus, but now since the house and job are secure I will be back to post­ing as always. Gamer­Chat will return I am try­ing to smooth out some tech­ni­cal dif­fi­cul­ties and as soon are those are fixed it will be back. But let’s talk games because that is why we are here. Today the Elec­tron­ic Con­sumers Asso­ci­a­tion has planned to do a demon­stra­tion up on cap­i­tal hill, on the morn­ing of Novem­ber 2nd. This is the same day that the Supreme Court will hear the Cal­i­for­nia Law on reg­u­lat­ing vio­lent video games. Kotaku broke word of this demon­stra­tion this morn­ing here is what ECA had to say in their arti­cle. “This will be a his­toric day for gamers and the video game indus­try as a whole, andRead 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.
