Brütal Legend, demo impressions

A demo for Brütal Legend was released today on both the American and European PSN store. I’m fairly sure its also released on Xbox 360. Well anyway, thought I would give it a try. I’ve been wanting this game for sometime now and I must say I was a bit disappointed. The humor and violence in the game was great.
I loved that. But the controls didn’t feel as good. And the camera felt awkward at times. There was also a bit of lagging from time to time in demo, which scared me of a bit. Which has made me decide that I will cancel my preorder on the title for now. And preorder some other game instead. I’m at least going to wait and see what others say about the game and see if I’ll regret my decision.
Sooner of later I’ll be rocking with Jack Black in Brütal Legend, either if it will be a purchase in the future or if I borrow the game.

I also tried the Uncharted 2: Among Thieves multiplayer demo. And the game looks great! To bad they could let you play a little of the main game. But I’m also pretty happy that you can’t. Since now I don’t know jack about the main story.
Not much to say about the multiplayer demo, was pretty fun. Will probably play the multiplayer in the full version of the game later.
If Uncharted 2 is as good as the first game, I think both this and Batman Arkham Asylum will be my favorite games of the year.

Unchated 100% cleared!

I cleared Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune for the third or fourth time today. This this I was going after the Platinum trophy. You know, the trophy you get after you get all the other trophies in the game. I just had to finish the game on its hardest difficulty, called Crushing. And that’s just what I’ve done. I beat the Crushing difficulty and got the platinum! It feels so great to have gotten everything in this game.
Now I just have to wait until Uncharted 2 gets released and hope its just as good, hopefully even better than the first game was.

Mini Ninjas finished!

Yeah, it really took no time to finish this game. So what do I think about it know?
I feel disappointed. From trailers it looked so charming and fun. Well only the charming part is true. It wasn’t very much fun. In the beginning of the game it felt fun. But since its do damn repetitive that quickly went away. The surroundings don’t change much either. Either you are in a forest, outside a forest or in a castle yard.

As I said its very repetitive, “kill” evil ninjas. Now do that 10000times! That’s all there is to this game. Well there is a little exploring, but its hardly something that would make me play this game again. It could at least have offered some minor variations on the ninja thing. Don’t know what else to say. I was looking forward to this game, but it wasn’t the game I was hoping for. I’m glad I got it via Gamestops trade in deals, if I had paid money for this, I would have been sad.

If you absolute must have this game I recommend to borrow it from someone, if you should like it after that, then go ahead and buy. I’m taking my copy back to Gamestop and hope I find something to trade it in with.
If you want to know something about the game you can ask, right now I’m to tired to care to write more about the game. Goodnight!

Batman finished!

And so I’ve cleared Batman Arkham Asylum. Good game. Much better than I expected or had ever hoped it to be. Still it got pretty repetitive sometimes. But I love being able to sneak up on enemies and silently take them out.
There is still a lot of things to find in the game, but I’ll save that for some other time. Then I know I’ll always have something to do, even if I don’t have new games.
I’ll give Batman Arkham Asylum 5/7. Its a good game, but its hardly perfect. I wished there would have been more boss fights, actually I was expecting it. Still one of the best best hero games I’ve played. I highly recommend it.

Tomorrow (later today) I’m gonna start playing Mini Ninjas and see if that’s a good game. Looking forward to it. Hope it turns out go0d too.
More on that later now its time for bed!

New 2D Sonic game!

So its seems have something they call “Project Needlemouse” in the works.
Which is a new Sonic The Hedgehog game in 2D! And apparently it will be a HD game also. So PS3 & Xbox 360 seems like the likely consoles it will land on. Probably Wii too. But right now, its not announced on any consoles. Will this really be Sonic’s big comeback? I’m hoping so, since at least Sonic Unleashed has some good elements. Hopefully this will be the jackpot we’ve all been waiting for.

God of War collection for PS3!

Sony announced today that they will be releasing God of War & God of War II on the Playstation 3. It seems like the price will be 39,99 USD (That’s about 285 SEK).
Since I have played a game in the God of War series, I’m gonna get this collection. There are no more excuses now. As I told my friend KNtheking/Keshendi last week, if GoW I & II ever came to the PS3 I would buy it.

“We are excited to announce the God of War Collection for this Holiday Season.
Now fans and newcomers to the series can experience the epic journey of
God of War and God of War II in 720p HD form.
Both titles have been remastered with anti-aliased graphics, running at 60 frames per second for a smooth gameplay experience, only on the PS3 system. Additionally, the Blu-ray Disc compilation will bring the PlayStation Network (PSN) trophy support to the franchise for the very first time.”
