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.

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?

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.

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

A while ago my relatively new laptop was having these problems with its speakers, the sound would cut in and out. It wouldn’t happen all the time, just enough to be nuisance. Until eventually the speakers stopped working all together. Great. Strangely enough, a person from dell called not to long after my speakers went dead to see if I was satisfied with my Laptop. I of course proceeded to tell him about my speaker problem. He gave me the number I should call to get it fixed and a special code I could enter so that I wouldn’t have to navigate the seemingly endless automated machines.
That was about two weeks ago, and I still haven’t called. Mainly due to the fact that I have a very simple way around the problem, I just plug my laptop into my fairly good speaker system and just like that, I have sound. Calling them just sounds like such a hassle and there really inst that much of a reason if I have a seamless way around the problem. But of course I will call them eventually, just so my laptop is independent of my room.

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,

For the first time in Nintendo‘s history it released it’s profit statistics and the results were negative. One of the greatest gaming companies in the world lost over $500 million dollars during the last fiscal year. You may be wondering how this could be possible considering that the previous year they managed to pull in just under $1 billion dollars in profits and were doing a good job of dominating the video game market. Well, they did not release any new systems this year or any new franchises to encourage consumers to spend more money on their products. In fact, the company was forced to reduce the price of the Nintendo 3Ds, one of their top selling products, to around $170, which is less then it costs to produce, generating a net loss.
Although things currently look grim for Nintendo, they could stills trike back in the coming year. With the release of the Nintendo Wii U there will be a huge increase in sales as well as new franchises to support this new product. Nintendo seems to be counting on countering this negative year with an extremely successful upcoming year.
I personally feel as if Nintendo is slowly being fazed out of the gaming world as more and more gamers switch to major consoles such as the Xbox and the PlayStation. Although I respect Nintendo for everything it has contributed to the gaming world, despite a select few games, I am not incredibly drawn to Nintendo’s products. I don’t foresee any major comebacks for Nintendo in the upcoming year. Although they will most definitely do better financially with the release of new products, I feel that the only way for Nintendo to live up to the company it once was, is to create something completely new that can dominate the market without competing with better companies with bigger audiences and better games.
This is just my opinion. What do you guys think about Nintendo and are you surprised by these statistics? Let me know in a comment!
