Post for February 7, 2010

Right off the bat I need to command everyone to go play Tetris.

I don’t use cable TV. I get all my television and movie needs from Netflix and Hulu. Netflix has seen an increase in users since making their service available on consoles. Netflix doing well is good news for us because that means they will be around longer and might offer better pricing deals in the future. On the other hand a rumor is going around that Hulu will begin charging for their service. That’s bad news for us since we like free things.

Crysis 2 will be set in New York City. I still have not finished the first game but I have had fun with the multiplayer. Crysis 2 is making claims that it will be the best looking console game this generation. With the looks and performance of Crysis 1 I fully believe them.

Prince of Persia has a new game coming out. It continues the new PoP while it seems it will borrow some story from the original PoP. The title is Forgotten Sands, which is awful similar to Sands of Time. Go play the original trilogy and ignore the new ones. The new one is just too easy and boring (even though I love the dialog and voice actors).

Keep on gaming people!


Uncharted 2 on top and Crysis in my drive

537,000 copies sold. Nathan Drake can get that hot tub he’s been wanting. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves was the top-selling console game for the month of october. It beat out Halo 3: ODST by quite a leap. Uncharted 2 is more than likely going to be one of the top 10 selling games for the holiday season.

The colon is getting overused for game titles by the way. Halo 3: blah blah, Uncharted 2: Stuff, Dragon Age: the first game, and Resident Evil: OMG Zombies! Someone needs to make a game with a semicolon in the title. That will sell better. Dante’s Inferno; I will play this game.

My gaming has been an erratic hodge podge lately. I picked up Crysis when it was on sale this weekend via Steam. So far so good. It does have very impressive visuals that make my machine whimper a little bit. The multi player is rather good actually. I’ve also been playing Dragon Age to the point of exhaustion, and dabbling in Overlord II.

My finger is bandaged so typing is a chore right now.

Anyway, keep gaming people!
