Elder Scrolls MMO?

This was something that, for better or worse, was bound to happen. Due to the elder scrolls being a popular RPG with a fairly dedicated following some company was bound to jump on the opportunity to make an MMORPG based on the elder scrolls world. Yeah… I don’t really know what to think about this. The Elder Scrolls has been a franchise I’ve really enjoyed. Each of their games have been thoroughly enjoying and honestly I don’t like the idea of a Elder Scrolls MMO. All fantasy MMOs are the same the only difference is how popular it is. So I certainly will not be partaking in this game. Mostly because I play games to have fun not to get addicted to them, and I know from experience that that is what MMORPGs do. My experience comes from the times I call “my dark days of gaming”, which is in which I played World of Warcraft. Yeah I know it’s pretty bad, but this was quite a long time ago. About 4 years ago to be exact, when I was young, dumb, and impressionable. So I suppose I’m getting a little off track, so whats the bottom line? Well I think this game will do extremely well, but I think it would be cooler if they made an online fallout. Because fallout has a completely unique landscape, story, and so on. It would be much more original, and I love originality.

First Impressions Are Hard To Erase

But Prototype 2 certainly erased my impression of the first one! I had played the first one and didn’t really care for it, but I did see potential in the series, and that is what propelled me to buy the second one.

Two Thursdays ago I purchased the game Prototype 2 and spent a good portion of that weekend playing through the game. I was yearning for a little more after fully completing the game, side missions and all. The only thing I really had left to do was completely upgrade my character, but that consisted of aimlessly flying around the open world New York landscape searching for enemies with consumable upgrades. So instead I started playing the game on insane difficulty. I haven’t gotten very far yet, so it’s still fairly easy. It was very interesting to watch a series change so drastically into a much better game. As gameinformer said, “radical has come out of the prototyping phase”. Awful pun aside I definitely agree. I see the original Prototype much more like a little test run. I’m glad it turned out to be a good game, because it is one of those games that just makes you feel like a legitimate badass. Every time you gain a new ability, you explore new ways to wreck havoc. And by the end of the game with everything upgraded nothing can even put a dent in you. So you get to cruise around New York Zero destroying things at will. and when all is said and done, isn’t that what a video game should be about?

What I Think About the Next Cod Game

Call of Duty games are famous (or infamous) for really bad campaigns and extremely addicting Multi-player. I’m sure the next instalment of the series will be no exception, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Despite my negative disposition to the Call of Duty franchise, I must admit I was excited when I saw the trailer for the coming game. Partly because it’s being made by Treyarch, which, in my opinion, is far more superior than Infinity Ward.

Oh, don’t get me wrong, I’m not excited for the campaign one bit, even thought that was all the trailer was about. I’m excited for the Multi-player. Even though I know it will just be the same recycled gameplay, it will entertain me in a slightly cheap way, but entertain me none the less. Also since this is the first Cod game to take place in the future, I am curios to see if they make up a few guns, which could give some very much needed diversity to gun choice.

One of the Craziest Games I’ve Ever Played

Image From xbox.gamespy.com

It was this game where you played as the infamous shark known as jaws, and it was called Jaws Unleashed. It was a fairly simple game and I do believe almost all of the fun came from how cool you felt by being a shark. You know, you could just swim around eating people that so foolishly swam into the deeper waters of Amity Islands. Oh but people on the shallow ends certainly were not safe, and not even the people on shore! One of my favorite things to do was swim as fast as I could toward the beach jump out of the water onto land and chow down on the unsuspecting land dwellers.

Throughout the campaign the game does a very good job at making you feel like a badass. Whether it be destroying entire science labs, fleets of ships, or tailing speed boats. But the most memorable badass moments were when you fight Shamoo in Seaworld, and when you fight a Giant Squid in the deep dark depths of the ocean.Which I do believe was the game’s finale.  I know the videos look pretty bad but keep in mind that it was a semi half assed game released in 2006. One thing I enjoyed about this game was that it didn’t take itself too seriously, but at the same time it wasn’t too ridiculous.

I’m not exactly sure what happened to that game, but I lost track of it a couple years ago. All in all it was an entertaining game with a fairly long story mode, and after talking about it and remembering how fun it was, if I saw that game at a game store I very well might re-buy it, so I may play it again

Looking Good So Far

Today I managed to get down to the game store and purchase [Prototype2]. After that my mom wanted to go into the “As seen on TV” store, where I was pleasantly surprised to spark a lengthy conversation about the Prototype games with the person working at the store. After that was over we went back to the house and I stated playing my freshly purchased game. I didn’t get too much play time but I think it’s safe to say that Prototype 2 is astoundingly better than its predecessor and will be a game that I thoroughly enjoy playing. I will most likely do a more in depth post about Prototype 2 next week when I’ve had sufficient play time. But until then,

Was I Right, or Was I Right?

I’m actually not so sure. Today [Prototype2] came out, and as none of you will remember, I did my very first post about the [Prototype] series. To sum it up, I said [Prototype] sucked, but it has potential as a series, just as Assassin’s Creed sucked, but turned into a great series. I’m not hyped enough about [Prototype2] to run down to Gamestop and buy it today, but I’ll definitely get it sometime this week. In the mean time, here’s a trailer for [Prototype2]:

 

 

I have really high hopes for the game after seeing this trailer, because it proves that a huge effort was made to insert a more interesting story into Prototype 2. I also really like the song choice it goes really well with the trailer.

The Begining of My Obsesion

My Sundays have become incredibly dull once again with the recent season finale of my favorite Youtube series of all time, Two Best Friends Play. I remember the first time I saw one of their episodes, I was looking up videos of the game Fear 3 because I was curious as to what kind of game it is. In the related video section I saw a video titled “Two Best Friends Play: Fear 3“. I’m not sure what compelled me to click on that video (probably boredom), but I am incredibly glad I did so. What I was unknowingly about to watch was one of the least funny episodes of Two Best Friends play. I only know it was an bad episode now, when I watched it at the time I thought it was absolutely hilarious.

I spent the rest of that day watching the ten minute adventures of Matt and Pat, severely neglecting my homework for that day. Their knowledge of video games astounded me, and their dynamic as a duo was perfect. I could tell they actually put a lot of time into planning out and making their videos. Ever since then I have religiously watched anything Matt and Pat made, including their full play-throughs of survival horrors and Fighterpedia, even though my experience with fighting games is next to non-existent at best. So yeah, we all have those people on Youtube we can’t get enough of, and Two Best Friends are mine.
