Hey everyone, from now on I’ll be writing stuff under the stage name  name Fury Vegas! Hopefully you’ll agree somewhat with what I say!(You can guess who this is hehe)

Now recently I completed Bioshock (yeah I know, take my time why don’t I?). Now it’s a great game, I mean, how games can you fire lightning bolts out of your hands? (InFamous, D&D games)

…..OK well how many games force you to choose between the life and death of a little girl? (The Sims?)

…..Nah doesn’t count. The Sims is a over-glorified fishbowl, Bioshock is a gritty life or death, impulse shooting fishbowl experience. Since Dermot has already written a review about it, I’m not going into details. However I will talk about SPOILERS!!! So only read on if you do not want to read the good or any ending!!!

Excuse the pun and the even worse intentions. I should really be revising for my maths exam but I can’t be bothered really, I have lost my practise papers and would love to spend the whole day gaming to wash my worries away.  Instead I chose to be productive.

Or, Why I Hate Hideo Kojima’s Game of the Year.

By Sparky

Personally, I just think that shows the extent of the irrational hype which surrounded this game for so long before its release. Even when gameplay footage showed the world that the whole game revolved around a ridiculously shoddy physics engine, everyone still seemed to be convinced that it was guaranteed to be brilliant.

I’d like to set something straight before I begin. This is a game designed for one purpose and one purpose only. It exists solely for puzzles. There is no other reason for it. The plot is merely a way for the game to force puzzles upon you. By the end, you’re searching for puzzles in order to unlock more puzzles.

If you don’t like puzzles, you won’t like this game. In fact, if you don’t like puzzles, don’t play this game. You’ll regret it.

If you haven’t played Super Metroid, you have a problem. Quite a big one, but it’s pretty easy to deal with.

Super Metroid came out in 1994, so this is a little late as well. It was good, even considering the number of brilliant games that came out on the SNES. Of course, due to the way history works, Super Metroid will never be thought of in the same way as Super Mario World, Link to the Past or Donkey Kong Country, because of the simple fact that Nintendo have never bothered publicising the Metroid series, resulting in less than half a million sales in North America. Which is a shame.

Since I got my RemoteJoy (A program which lets me record video off of my PSP) working, as a test, and to give you a flavour of the gameplay, I recorded some action from MHP2G:

I’ll admit this is little (as in, a decade) late, but it’s still an interesting game. It is a bit difficult to review though, considering almost everyone has heard of it, and the way it has spawned an astoundingly popular series which, in spite of barely changing over the years, is still going strong and has sold one hundred and seventy five million games. And, its developer, Game Freak, is still going, even though the only other game they’ve made I can think of is Game Boy Camera (eight out of ten, by the way). The picture on the right’s a Ford Tempo, just in case you wanted to know.

You hear that. That’s the sound of your bones breaking after you have just carelessly jumped from a helicopter which is 50ft in the air. That’s right folks, ‘Dead Rising’ is the Comedy/Slash em’ up/Shoot em’ up kinda free roamer? From the ever popular CAPCOM. The game follows a photojournalist by the name of Frank West who ends up trapped in a shopping mall in the fictional town of Willamette, Colorado, that is infested with zombies.

Right, straight off the bat, let me say that this review will be hard for me to do with a semblance of professionalism. Why? Because the Monster Hunter series is one I keep close to my heart, so there may be a slight amount of bias throughout this review.

Ok, so I know what you’re thinking, ‘Why is some raving, idiotic, critic comparing a game and a band?!’ And, well, the answer is; I, am a raving, idiotic, critic and I can do whatever the hell I want. You’ll see how this will all come together in a moment.

Alright, so Too Human, Xbox exclusive, so far ratings haven’t exactly…well…let’s just say they aspires to adequacy…point made? Excellent.
