Final 2009 review ranks

If u look at the stats, the PS3 had the best games of 2009 and the worst was the Wii with critics liking only 28% of 300+ games. PS3 led with the top three games Uncharted 2, Street fighter 5, and Modern Warfare 2. Honorable mentions went to PS3 who had 5/10, next game the Xbox 360 with 4, and finally Nintendo with a measly 1 game which was Grand Theft Auto Chinatown Wars for the DS.

Critics never liked the Wii due to its vast amount of crappy games, they just weren’t fun to play. Back in September there seemed to be a rise and a new beginning, guess that didn’t last long. But strangely enough, through November the Wii sold 1 million units with Xbox 360 at 819,500, then the PS3 with 710,400 overall.

Nintendo better be making some better games for the Wii or else sales will plummet and it wont be pretty. Thats all forr the 2009 ranks.

Great price for the Wii

Still don’t have a Wii? Are u waiting for the Christmas break to get one? DONT! When the Wii first came out the price tag on it was $250.00 Which was still less expensive than the PS3 and Xbox 360, but it was considered an amateur gaming console, nevertheless, it was still awesome to play it. During September, the Wii had a $50 price cut and went down to $199.99 after the Xbox 360 and PS3 also dropped their prices. If you didn’t have a chance to get a Wii during the Black Friday sale either. your chance is here.

Walmart is offering an amazing deal on the Wii, they’re offering another $50 off the Wii!! That brings the price down to $149.99 which is the lowest ive ever seen! This is NOT a deal going on anywhere else but Walmart, so for all you gamers ready to get a Wii, this is your chance. But you better hurry, Walmart is ending this deal December 12th, so get out and go buy youself a Wii and save $50.

Halo series?

If you really think about it, when the very first Halo came out, everybody was crazy about it! If you didn’t have it, you technically weren’t a gamer. When I first played that game I was hooked, and it was a great game, why not? Halo was a gamers best friend. Next in line was Halo 2, after the first great Halo game, the sequel should be good and expected to be better than the first. It wasn’t as addicting but it was still fun and playable, once again it was great for party games and just something to do when you got bored. Xbox live also made it extremely fun to game with other people instead of just your friends.

Now this is where the problem steps in, Halo 3.. From my personal experience, I can say that the Halo series has been giving up on their games, it was an amazing game at first, but then they just seemed to be putting something together and trying to make it great. Halo 3 did not match up with the story line and didn’t even make sense. Aliens and little flood creatures were cool. But flying monkeys? oook…. I didn’t like this concept of the game, they needed an new enemy for the Master Chief so they put in monkeys…

Alright, Xbox live was still fun, but it seemed like they took out some of the same capabilities as Halo 2, such as the ability to jump farther and avoid grenades easier along with dodging the hammer is impossible. If your definitely good enough you can counter though. It seems as if you have control of grenades, you have control of the game, which makes the game a little more interesting.

Halo ODST was the same old spartan fight except you die faster. They even required you to buy ODST to be able to play MLG which I thought was just a quick way for Bungie to get a quick buck. Halo Wars was an interesting game, it had the concept of spartans fighting aliens along with some Starcraft/Warcraft gameplay going on. It was fairly new and interesting but I wasn’t interested, they had limited units and not enough strategy. Simple way of putting it, it was too easy.

The next Halo game is said to be Halo Reach which gamers are looking forward to because of Project Natal. Project Natal as you all know is something like the Wii with motion sensor technology except its supposed to be alot better at capturing movements than the Wii. You can check out all of the features in an earlier post I made.

That’s all for Halo, stay tuned for more on Project Natal.

Assassins Creed 2

Ok as many of you know, Assassins Creed came out about 2 weeks ago, I haven’t played it yet, but due to the first ones amazing graphics, creative gameplay, and a whole lot of fun, I can’t wait to buy this game!! I recommend it extremely, although it does get really repetitive but other than that, AWESOME!

The game itself is super addicting and takes some strategy to find your way around, I was a little dissapointed at how fast the game ended. I was hoping it would be ALOT longer something close to Twilight princess. Now Assassins Creed 2 is said to take the gaming experience one step further.

It shattered the ratings and got an unbelievable score of 9.2 from IGN!!! WOW!!! This game also is based alot on old history, but it makes it REALLY interesting. In Assassins Creed 2, your able to buy armor and new weapons! In the first game, you had a small variety of weapons, but you could use them in so many ways. The difficulty was actually fairly more difficult than I thought, but nothing you can’t handle.

Story line, missions, investigations, and a whole lot of blood! This is one game you don’t to miss! Keep checking back for the latest in gaming news.

Project Natal

Ok, this isn’t really new, but I thought id write about it anyway. This is probably the sweetest thing ive ever seen if it actually works the way its shown (video below). Its supposedly supposed to have voice recognition, full body control, and its pretty cheap. Ive heard rumors that the price on the camera is going to be $80, sounds pretty reasonable for what you can do with it.

I saw the commercial with an actual gun game and the way its shown, all I can say is, I can’t wait! Chances are that this thing isn’t going to do what it shows. Gamers everywhere were dissapointed and angry that the Wii controllers would not recognize movements and it became really frustrating. This is said to be breakthrough technology with everything u need.

It is probably limited on certain games that you can play on Natal, but ill let you decide for yourself, check this out:

Left4dead 2 worth it or a waste of money?

As many of you know, Left4dead 2 came out about a week ago, ive been playing this game for a while and recommend it for hours and hours of fun. But Left4dead 2??? Its basically the same concept of the first game with new zombies, a few new weapons and new levels, other than that, its the same game!!

Honestly, would you spend another 50 bucks for almost the same game? Don’t get me wrong, the first one was great, but the second one… I don’t think so. Some of the new zombies look pretty interesting though, I looked all around and haven’t been able to find out anything about the new special infected, so im posting it here for you guys:

Charger: Some people say its like a second tank, the charger is a new special infected that’s able to grab a human survivor and seperate him from his teammates but dragging him in his right arm into a wall or a solid object, after that the Charger continues to pound them into the ground until an ally is able to free them. The Charger is supposed to do massive damage.

Jockey: Ok this one made me laugh, its called the Jocket, it kind of looks like Gollum from Lord of the Rings, that aside, its able to jump on to the survivors head and attack them while giving control as to which direction to move the human survivor, its great for separating the survivors apart.

Spitter: This new infected looked kind of lame to me, nothing really interesting and not much strategy involved, but its main goal is to spit a acid phlegm bomb onto the survivors, this works especially well when the survivors are cornered. When the Spitter dies, it leaves a puddle that does the same amount of damage as her spit bomb. She is very useful when it comes to igniting gas cans when the survivors are near them, but other than that, shes done.

Wandering Witch: Ok this is pretty cool, the Witch that always sat and cried and sometimes glitched when the survivors would get near her is back and this time with a vengeance, she gets to wander around in this game during the day and can sneak up on the survivors at any given moment, she also cries less and im told that she can sing?? uhh oookay… This way the survivors will have a harder time killing her.

The other 4 old infected characters still remain as Smoker, Hunter, Tank and Boomer. There is also some new survivors which include Coach, Ellis, Nick, and Rochelle. The up side to this game is, you get a new selection of zombies which can put u in some great positions and it doesn’t get tiring playing the same old 4 infected anymore, here you have variety and alot of cool new stuff.

I just wanna play the new infected, but other than that, its the same game.. Stay tuned.

Foreign memory cards no longer work for Xbox 360??

Heres a new story for you, and the result might shock you. Microsoft is releasing a update for the Xbox 360 which will end up disabling the memory cards that are not recognized by Microsoft. Why is Microsoft doing this?? They believe it is an attempt to stop piracy. WHAT?!

On Microsoft’s blog, many angry gamers had a lot to say about this with the comment count already at 400. Gamers are upset because of Microsoft’s measly memory card which is $25 but has only 512 MB of memory. Other memory cards worth about $50 have been able to hold 4 GB of memory! That’s alot compared to that puny Microsoft memory card. Were not sure what’s going to happen, but well keep you updated.

Nintendo is named the “world’s best company”

Nintendo has been recently named the “world’s best company” by BusinessWeek. It managed to beat out competition of Google and Exxonmobile, shocking! But what made Nintendo the world’s best company even though its sales are low due to the late price cut of Nintendo.

Well I asked the same question and BusinessWeek said that it was “Emblematic.” What does that mean? Well if you look at the figures, in the past 5 years nintendo has a huge increase in sales of 36% with a annual growth of 38%.

Sony and Microsoft didn’t even place on the list which I think is hilarious, once again beaten by Nintendo. Well have to see what Microsoft and Sony have in store for the future.

Delay of 2009 titles.

I just picked up some information revealing 6 games that probably wont make it to shelves this year, too bad. Some of these are anticipated games and the number one spot belongs to my most anticipated game, Starcraft II. Heres the breakdown:

1. Starcraft 2: This game is the sequel to the original Starcraft which was very popular and still is, it was made back in 1996 so its a pretty old game, but old doesn’t always mean boring. The original game is actually played like a sport back in Korea, cool huh? Starcraft 2 is delivering new units, a new story, and a whole lot of fun.

2. Dante’s Inferno: This game was said to be similar to Sony’s God of War. It looks interesting and has a whole lot of sparks and flashes, ive heard alot of good things about this game so keep your eye out for previews and ratings!

3. I am Alive: This game is actually a action and survival typed game by Ubisoft which is out for both Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and Windows. Its basically set up in Chicago and a earthquake hits the city, this man is getting worse by the day and waiting for rescue, he sets up a camp and needs to collect resources and materials to survive. Interesting.

4. Heavy Rain: Very little is known about this game, all we know is that its about a person who’s trying to save someone he loves very much. Basically showing how far someone would go to save this person that he loves.

5. Alpha Protocol: This game is actually a Action-Role playing game which involves a CIA agent named Micheal Thorton. After a mission goes terribly wrong, Micheal Thorton is betrayed by his fellow comrades, government, and if thats not bad enough, hunted! He begins using the Alpha Protocol and acts as an undercover agent.

6. Aliens VS Predator: AVP has been a hit game ever since the movies, now turning it into a pretty sweet game is Sega whose in turn working up on the follow up title. The game has a lot riding on it, it would actually be wise for Sega to give it a delay to make it better and possibly more enjoyable for gamers.

Keep checking back for more upcoming gaming news!
