Bulletstorm hit shelves today and I have to say that its pretty awesome. I haven't played a ton but so far what I can tell you is that it seems like a faster paced version of Borderlands. Its got a great story and the game play is amazing. The Skillshot system is one of the coolest features, and it makes killing enemy's a bit more gory and interesting. The Boss battles are difficult but not so much that you rage quit and shut off the system. Make sure that you pay attention because the game will give you hints here and there to tell you when a difficult battle is on its way. Everything that you earn in the game depends on how creatively you destroy your enemy's using several unique guns and the environment to do so. The Skillshot system also has a lot to with that so use it when the opportunity arises
The game has a very cinematic feel and does an amazing job of sucking you in right away. The sound and picture quality is some of the best that I've had the chance to experience. So far this is the best thing Epic Games has produced and I can't wait to get back to it. I'm giving this title a 5 out of 5 so go and grab a copy as soon as you can!

Recently Valve announced that Left for Dead 2 will be asking the community for help finishing the new campaign they will be releasing with the other 3 maps form the first game. This will be new DLC coming to the 360, PC, and Mac (Info at www.l4d.com) That makes me ask the question, what of other companies did that? Let us the gaming community help come up ideas and if the designers like any of it, maybe the possibility of working directly with the production team and helping them out throughout production of the game. I know all of this is a long shot but the thought would be nice. Even if the just said it to humor us.
I can't wait to get your take on this, i will be looking into this more and getting you more info as it comes available.

Some additions in the next game that I would like to see is maybe a few more vehicles. I'm not looking for tanks by any means but just a few more varieties of the the one they had in the first one. I would say that some player vs player online game mode would be nice, but I fear with that people would want to try and turn it into just another FPS and forget that its not what the game is about. Playing online with friends is pretty sick, but i think that maybe adding more enemy's when playing like that might make the game a little more intense and fun. This game doesn't have to be different but just a few tweaks here and there so it isn't the same game twice would be nice. That usually is a very uncommon thing for me to say. I usually want to change lots of things about a game so for me to say something like that you know it has to be good.
I hope those of you who haven't tried this game go and get it. If you buy it used it can't be more than 20 or 30 bucks and the DLC is totally wort the 1600 microsoft points I paid for it and it might be even cheaper now. I put easily 100 hrs into the game and still counting. So you know the replay value id extremely high. I know a few people that still play with me online from time to time. So seriously check it out.

Graphics wise, I think that CODBO did fine with the environments but the characters and guns in the game seem cartoony and poorly done. If I wanted cartoony graphics, I would play Halo. The game just looks flat out amazing and I can't wait to get my hands on it. I really look forward to seeing how well it does and how fast Black Ops falls because of it. I really wish this could be more in depth, but I need to get my hands on the game first! I hope to get some thought and opinions from you guys!

There have been opportunistic times that have come to Playstation to never have been in the situation that they are in now. Its like they just forgot to show up for the meetings. For instance. you knew after the 1st day that the Halo franchise was going to be a huge success. What did you do to compete with it? You sure as hell didn't make an effort to get the exclusive rights to the Call of Duty franchise, you didn't worry about keeping the Final Fantasy contract. You sure as hell didn't put your development team to work on a FPS thats was going to have a shot at toping the Halo game and sling-shotting your system to the top for good. As far as I can tell you didn't do a damn thing about any of it and now are trying to scramble for answers. This is why I don't feel bad about turning my back on you Playstation. You lost an extremely loyal fanbase because you got lazy and cocky. I know many many people that don't even care what you do now because they have the 360 and are happy. If you ever want to be on top again you need to start spending some goddamn money and put some shit on the table that Mircosoft has to try to catch up to you on. If you don't do that, you might as well just stick to tvs because there wont be many more chances. If the new Xbox hits shelves before Sony comes out with something new and innovative, Playstation might as well just give up.
Of course these are my opinions, and they may not mean much on a grand scale but I just miss my playstaion and wish that they weren't such dumb asses. Please let me know what you guys think!

I'm not a PS3 owner and I would like to have products involving the PS3 on my blog. I could steal some stuff from other people on the web, but I would really like to have one of my followers either do it, or maybe get some suggestions on where I should steal my reviews from. Please tell me if your interested or know someone who might be! Thanks for everything guys!

The system does accomplish its goal, but it seems to me that you have to "claw grip" the controller for them to be comfortable but I also find that to get in my way more than anything. But if you want think that running a higher sensitivity is what your game is missing then I suggest that you pick up a set. They are rather inexpensive msrp $20 but there is a special running on the website http://www.kontrolfreek.com and they are half price right now from there.
If any of you have tried them or have something to add I would love to hear it. Thanks for taking the time to stop by my page!
The template that I used has disabled my comments and I had no idea that was the problem! I'm really sorry to all of you who tried to leave comments but couldn't. I promise nothing like this will happen again and I want to give a HUGE thank you to anonymouse.blogspot.com for helping me figure out the problem!

Today I was reading http://leveling-up.blogspot.com and he described a very interesting take on Inception game idea, and it got me thinking about new game ideas and what the next level is going to be. I've been playing a lot of Black Ops so my mind went right into that military style game. I starting think about a CoD style RPG that involves you planing some on the field type officer and you are granted choices about how to deal with certain situations. For instance, the Japanese have taken control of a nuclear sub that holds a fusion system that could solve the worlds energy crisis. You obvoiusly can't destroy the sub so how do you get this equipment back to US soil before the Japs seize world power? You would have to develop an infiltration plan gather your team and then take your team on to the battle field and get to the end of the mission. The goal of course being getting that or peace of valuable information back from the enemy safely. Now of course you would have to survive the mission, if you don't you then are transfered in your replacement have have to try to get it back another way or suffer with the consequences of mission failure whatever that might be. The difficulty would be insane and the production value would have to be astronomical to make something like this work, but in the end I can just see the hell I would go through in a game like this and would welcome such a challenge. Please share your ideas with me, I want to see what everyone else has in mind!
