Crysis 2

With the demo already being downloaded like crazy by Xbox Live I have to wonder if this game will stop Black ops in its tracks. I already know a ton of people that are passing up on the new Call of Duty to get a taste of this game. Its doesn't hit shelves for a little over a month, but I think that many will pass on Black Ops  for a new realm of online gaming in just a few short weeks. I've played the demo myself and have to say that it looks like its going to be masterful. I will probably be done with Black Ops when I ca purchase this, what do you guys think?

Just a rundown

Some of you follow my other blog which has to do with Call of Duty: Black Ops strategies. And since people like that one so much i wanted to do something more relateable to everyone in the gaming world. I urge you guys to comment and ask questions.

For my first discussion I want to talk about the possibility of a Resident Evil 6 and whether or not you think it could resurrect the franchise. It seems to be a trend that every second game in the franchise is a huge hit,  Resident Evil 4 won game of the year. I love the action elements from the previous two titles, but I want to be scared again. I want a arm to pop through the wall and grab me. I want crows to attack me out of nowhere or a dog to jump out of a window. I haven't felt that since Resident Evil 2 and that was one of the things that made me fall in love with the game. The filler titles are amusing but barely have anything to do with the core value of the game so I don't really even hold them in the same regard.

I think limiting my movement space would help bring that back. If you remember in the first 2 titles could never really run away, you had to react fast and think on your feet. The limited space made you fight panic and absorb information quickly. I really like the way they split the first two stories in the RE and RE2 and would like to see them develop the story like that again. The idea that you helped each other out the entire time was always really cool to me. Especially RE2 I loved the way the blended the stories together and how eveything worked out in the game.

Those are a few things I think could make it better and I can"t wait to hear what you guys have to say.
