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.

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.

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:

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.
