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!

Asking fans for help, good move?

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.

Borderlands 2

I've been on a pretty big Borderlands kick as of late so I thought that I would write some about Borderlands and what I would like to see in Borderlands 3. I fell in love with Borderland the second I put it in. I instantly absorbed myself into the story while I was stunned by the outstanding comic book style graphics. Although I consider this an RPG, but unlike most RPG's this game wasn't carried by the story it was carried by some of the most amazing game play I ever encountered. I'm saying the story is bad either, its actually quote well done, it's just that the game play of this game is just that good.

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.

CoD Killer?

I've been waiting for Battlefield 3 for a while now and I have to say- this next installment has a real chance of knocking the Call of Duty games right off the top spot in the next step in the world of FPS. Here's why, the people that were big fans of Battlefield 2 are going to come back because they found it to be more difficult  and more realistic than MW2. It wasn't  as bug ridden and hacker prone as the CoD games were either and that is a big plus. Everything about the previous 2 titles says that this one is going to improve 10 fold over the last game and I think thats nothing but trouble for the frustrated fan base of CoD. It really is starting to feel like CoD has stopped trying. And that said, Black Ops is the best CoD to date and I think they will improve the next game by a lot but the other FPS are already taking steps that CoD hasn't really done anything with. Vehicle warfare and crippled body parts are just some things that BF2 had and BF3 will improve on. Even something as simple as being able to mount your LMG to a brick wall, or destructible environments  is steps ahead of where CoD needs to be.

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!

Xbox 360 vs Playstation 3

When it comes to shear processing power the PS3 runs circles around the 360. On the other side the 360 has more exclusive games and downloadable content that is available for almost a month over other platforms. So what side does one choose? On paper that stats for the PS3 says that big things are comong and coming fast. Huge games with amazing graphics and out of this world environments that you could interact with in every way. But where is it, where is all this break though content that we were promised? With Uncharted 2 and God of War 3 we thought it was here. And when Killzone 3 comes out, maybe thats what I've been looking forward to, but it just seems like they aren't trying surpass everyone to me. Then you take a look at the 360 and see that it was out almost a year before the PS3 and easily has 2x times the content because people refused to wait and bought the 360. And that head start really did a lot to stop the PS3 from being progressive. And they had another chance when they made some half assed attempt to improve on Nintendo's motion controllers but Xbox 1-uped them  again with the Kinect. The PS3 got cocky and thought since they ran the industry for 15 years they could show up late to the game and still outsell everyone . But that didn't happen, All that potential power just sits there, waiting to be unleashed but still, for the most part it seems like nobody cares. When are they going to finally tap into the power of this machine and finally give us something INNOVATIVE. I want you to pull through this slump Sony, I really do but you've shown me nothing to prove that you will be leading the way again anytime soon.

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!

Help Wanted for Playstation 3 reviews

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 Kinect is a revolutionary piece f gaming equipment thats been ut for a few months now so I decided to write a review on it.  It uses both body and voice recognition so you can interact with your xbox in ways you never could before. Your body and voice take place of your controller and give you a new way to play video games. All of this is great for kids or people that don't really play video games, but when it comes to the hardcore gamer this stuff is just a gimick that yu shouldn't buy into. Nothing about it is precise enough that it would be feesable for anything other than the family fun type games that they make for it. Plain and simple if you have a young family, you should buy this because you can have a lot of fun with it. But everyone else, save the money and buy some new games. This technology needs a good 10 yrs before its actually useful to us hardcore gamers.

FPS Freak by Kontolfreak

This is the FPS freak, and already I know that you think it's a pointless marketed to those with too much time on their hands and money to burn....  And I think that you are exactly right! What they are designed to do is grant FPS players a higher range of motion making it easier to play on higher sensitivity settings. What I think it does is make the controller bulky and uncomfortable to hold.

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!

I'm really sorry you guys!

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!


I've noticed an increase of followers, but no comments! If you guys aren't able to comment, please let me know and I will try and fix the issue. You can comment on my other blog codgurl.blogspot.com to contact me.

New Game Ideas!

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!

First Strike!

As I'm sure most of you know (because we've all been waiting) The First Strike map pack came out last night. Now I don't know baout you guys but I skipped class today and have been BUSY playing this game almost non stop. But I figured I owed a review of it just in case you haven't spent all of your hard-earned Microsoft points on it. It won't take me long to give you a ton of reasons why you should spend those points RIGHT NOW. These maps are even better then the ones in the game. They have created a map to help each gaming style and way to challenge the rushing breed to another level. In maps like discovery the snipers will thrive.Wide open spaces and a bridge that can take out of of the ways into your spawn make it easy to funnel enemies and pin them down. Stadium offers the shot gunners and SMG's a chance to be on top with a concentrated environment that grants those close quarters gunfights you crave. It really does offer new challenges and a different element to an already wonderfully done game, I can only hope that Treyarch and Activision keep up the amazing work.

Turtle Beach X-11 Gaming headset

I've had these for a while now and I really can't imagine playing with out them anymore. I use with all games now, but for FPS titles, you really wouldn't believe the differnce. 1st, you always know where the enemy is because you can hear without a doubt where all the action is taking place. That combined with the ability to communicate with your team, all in the same system makes these a great idea. I know a a lot of gamers that use them and they will tell you the same thing. They are worth the $60, so just go get a pair!
