TWILIGHT

Okay X-Box fanboys and girls, before you put on your rage hats, let me say that this is not a rant nor am I bashing on X-Box. I am just telling my reasons why I haven’t and why I don’t plan on getting an X-Box; 360 or otherwise.

NEW MOON

It used to be that the only current generation gaming console I owned was the Nintendo Wii, and at a time, I was content with that. But then I noticed that updates to my favorite fighting games were coming out (games like Street Fighter 4, and Tekken 6), and I could clearly see that they would never see the light of day on the Nintendo Wii. So I thought, like many other Wii only owners I bet, it was about time to get an HD console, but which one? I believe it was sometime during 2010, I looked at what both X-Box and PS3 had to offer.

ECLIPSE

Both systems were appealing, and even though many PS3 owners bad mouth the fact that you have to pay for online on X-Box (X-Box LIVE), it didn’t really bother me. I think it’s 60 dollars a year; that’s really not that bad to me, it’s pretty low and what you get for it is well worth it. What made me in the end make me end up getting the PlayStation 3 is it’s exclusive games. The very first games I got when I bought my PS3 (other than StreetFighter 4 , and Tekken 6) was Infamous, Ratchet and Clank: FCIT, and Uncharted 2. And I completely loved them.

BREAKING DAWN

I’m not saying that X-Box doesn’t have anything to offer, it’s just that I wasn’t really interested in them. To me, Dead or Alive was the only game that really had my interest as a game could play on an X-Box. I will admit, the bouncy physics in that game was one of the reasons why I liked that game. Hey, I’m a guy, can you blame me? Some of the other games like Project Gotham Racing, Gears of War, and Halo are games I really didn’t care for.

To me, X-Box doesn’t really give me that unique experience kind of feeling in it’s games. That kind of feeling that when you play a game you can say “I can only get this while playing on this system.” Nor does it have any stand out charaters from X-Box original games, which is sad because it has a develper like Rare on it side. I hate to hear when X-Box get a chance to have an exclusive character on a multiplatform game, and the only name people can think of is Master Chief.  But I will admit, Alan Wake is a step in the right direction. The look and style of that game seems like something unique and could be only found on the X-Box. If the X-Box keeps bringing games like this, I might reconsider getting one, but not until then. Tell Rare to get off thier asses and make magic again like they did in the golden N days.

Oh, if your wondering what’s with the Twilight headers? Inception.

Recently, a lot of my favorite Wii titles are jumping the Nintendo gates, and making their way to it’s competitive HD’s consoles. Games like No More Heroes, Golden Eye 007, and House of the Dead: Overkill. And even though I feel these remakes are like a spit in the face at Nintendo, and are abominations that should have never gone further than topics of conversation for stupid people who don’t own a Wii. I am more lenient on one game, and that’s House of the Dead: Overkill. While some of the other games are games meant to be more in favor to Nintendo Wii (A topic I probably discuss later in a rant that I had cooking for some time now), House of the Dead is just a fun light shooter game.

If you haven’t already played House of the Dead: Overkill, I highly recommend House of the Dead: Overkill Extended Cut. It’s got a very funny story, shooting up zombies/mutants, and it has more F-Bombs than Samuel Jackson can shake a tail feather to, and if you don’t believe me: It’s the truth. And it’s all wrapped up in an nice grind house movie package, with great Co-op I might add. And now it has upgraded graphics, HD, and also bonus content. Will I be getting this game? No, because I hate Wii-makes and I wished they would die. But don’t let that stop you from enjoying this game.

HD Version:

I really enjoyed playing the Wii version of this game, it was hilarious and fun to play with friends on the Co-op modes. I believe the HD version will be a PlayStation exclusive and controlled by the PlayStation Move, and have a lot of extra features. If you already own a Wii and thinking about getting this on that instead of getting the HD version, then thank you.

If you are an owner or a fan of PlayStation 3, then I bet you are fully aware that the PlayStation’s online service PlayStation Network (PSN) was down due to hacking for a while (For more information on this, click here). I got a PS3 in late 2009 when I realized that big third party game developers would never put games like Super Street Fighter 4 or Tekken 6 on the Wii, and since then I’ve been having a hell of a good time playing the games and especially online. So when the outage happened, I was annoyed that I couldn’t play games like Portal 2 or Uncharted 2 online, but I wasn’t enraged like some of the other people I’ve noticed. There were some who said they would never buy anything on PSN ever again, and some that said that they will only buy stuff using the PSN cards, I even heard there were some who sold their PS3’s. To me, this was a hard time, but it wasn’t that serious. Especially after hearing that lots of companies have a breach in security involving their customers, but it’s usually kept undercover. Now that PSN has returned, I plan to do the same things that I always have been doing, using my card to buy DLC, Movies, or whatever. The only thing that has changed is that I will now keep a closer eye on my card activity.

Hi readers, I just came across these comments on a certain site, and I had to put it out there (But I will not include the commenter’s user names):

Person#1: “…buy the Ps3. Theres free online gaming and since you’re only buying it for this game you will get a Blu-ray player built in the Ps3 too for alot better qualities in movies and such, not only the gameplay.”

Person#2: “I don’t mind paying for the online fees and i don’t care much about the blu-ray player . I have a lots of friends who play on xbox live so that’s why im gonna buy a 360. But thanks for your input ;)”

These two comments brought me hope that PS3 fanboys and X-Box 360 fanboys can talk with each other without raging out, because this could have easily turned into a flame war about “(blank) sucks because (blank).” Each person stated why they like their system of choice without hate, and because of that, I had to share it with everyone.

Keep the love alive!

Hello ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the blog post where I predict gaming history for the next two years. Be prepared, these predictions are 100% true or false:

  • PlayStation’s E3 2011 conference will pretty much suck due to the hacking of their network, and Sony spending most of their time trying to make up for it.
  • Next year’s PlayStation E3 conference will be best of show, due to Sony announcing some thing very BIG.
  • Nintendo will name, demo, and show off their new console at E3 2011. That will be one of the factors making the Nintendo’s conference best of show of 2011.
  • Nintendo new console will release sometime in 2011, and the sales of the console will be very low. Stores will be in overstock of the console. After an increase in the console’s library, a redesign, and a price cut, the system will start to fly off shelves.
  • There is a remake of Halo 1 in the works for X-Box 360. And there will be a massive amount of content in the game.
  • The original Halo will be available on the X-Box 360 remake, with achievements and playable over X-Box Live.
  • The PlayStation Move and the X-Box Kinect will no longer be supported by the third quarter of 2011.
  •  A new console will emerge to compete with the leading three consoles.
  • X-Box’s next console will release during the same time as Nintendo’s next console.
  • PlayStation will still rely on their current generation console.
  • Nintendo will still support the Wii.
  • Nintendo’s next console will be able to stream content to the Nintendo 3DS.
  • PlayStation 3 will be able to stream content to Sony’s codename NGP (Next Generation Portable).
  • Valve’s Steam will be fully supported on Nintendo’s Next Console and PlayStation 3.
  • Console to PC online battles will be supported on Valve’s Steam.
  • The so-called video game channel G4 will still suck.
And that is it.
