First Insight into the Upcoming Post-Apocalyptic Game Metro: Last Light

Today I was on YouTube and I just happened to stumble across the short film Metro: Last Light. It was actually an add on a video, and for the first time in history I did not choose to skip it after 5 seconds. In fact, I sat through the whole 4 minutes in a complete awe. Now, I am sure many of you know a lot about the game Metro 2033 which is based off of the Russian Novel with the same name. Metro 2033 is a post-apocalyptic style survival/first person shooter game, reminiscent of games such as Fall Out. The game takes place mostly underground in the Metro below Moscow, hence the name. Well, a first look into the sequel to this game has just been released in the form of this live action film. Here it is!

If you were not completely blown away by this film then I don’t know what is wrong with you! This is truly one of the best short films I have ever seen and it just makes me all that more excited for the release of Metro: Last Light. I’ll admit that I actually have never had the opportunity to play Metro 2033, but I am sure I will be picking up a copy of this game when it comes out early next year!

Let me know in a comment what you guys think of this short film and if you plan on buying Metro: Last Light in 2013!

BioShock Infinite Postponed untill 2013!!

Over the last few months I have made a few blog posts regarding the game BioShock Infinite. Well, just recently it was announced that the game will be delayed until early 2013. The game is now scheduled to be released on the 26th of February. This four month delay is supposed to allow the game developers to make minor but necessary tweaks to the game.

The creative director of the game, Ken Levine, made the announcement and commented on the matter, saying, “BioShock Infinite is a very big game, and we’re doing things that no one has ever done in a first-person shooter.” He continued to convince the fans that the wait is worth it, adding, “it means a bit more waiting, but more importantly, it means an even better BioShock Infinite.”

Many of the fans seem to be growing weary of waiting, as this game has been in the works for an extremely long time. The first trailer was released late last year and since then fans have been told to sit tight and wait. I have never played a BioShock game before so this wait does not really affect me, but it does make me excited to see what the final product will look like. I may even go out and buy the game when it comes out in 9 months.

What are your opinions on the postponed BioShock release? Are you happy that the developers are taking the time to make sure they release a perfect game or do you wish they would speed up the release process? Let me know in a comment!

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?

So what do you think of Prototype 2, emerging series, or video games in general? Let me know in a comment!

New Family Guy Video Game: Back to the Multiverse!!

GameRant.com

If you are a fan of both Family Guy as well as video games, then you will be excited to hear that a new Family Guy video game will be released in September of this year. The game will be titled Back to the Multiverse and is in fact is already listed on Amazon as a placeholder.

The game revolves around the Road to the Multiverse episode of Family Guy from the Eighth season. In the episode, Brian and Stewie set out on an adventure through a multitude of different alternate universes via Stewie’s magical universe transportation remote. As they travel through the fabrics of reality, they eventually get stuck in a universe where humans are subservient to dogs. Brian is eager to further explore this universe, but Stewie is ready to leave. This results in the two fighting over the remote and accidently destroying it. They are forced to locate the dog version of the Griffen family in order to retrieve dog-Stewie’s universe remote to allow them to get home.

I am very excited for this game. I have always been drawn to games like The Simpsons: Hit and Run as well as many of the older Family guy games and I feel as if this is the perfect setting for the next installment in the Family Guy video game series. I think that the setting is perfect as the Multiverse episode is one of my favorites. The game will be released on both Xbox 360 as well as the PlayStation 3 on September 25th, 2012.

Tell me what you guys think about this new Family Guy game. Do you enjoy video games based off of shows like Family Guy or do you think that it’s just a ploy for companies to make more money? Let me know in a comment!

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.

So what do you think of Black Ops 2, Cod, or FPS’s in general? Let me know in a comment!

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,
