Backbreaker – Impressions

Posted in Impressions with tags , , on June 3, 2010 by parasomia

I’m not the biggest football fan by any means.  I’m a hockey fan and nothing will change that.  However, that doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy playing football here and there and having fun with some friends even in video game land.  While a ton of people love the Madden series, I really don’t.  That’s just me, oh well deal with it.  What I did love, and so did many of my friends, was what 2K was doing when they were doing their yearly NFL franchise.  It was awesome, it was different, and it smacked Madden around like a little bitch… at least that’s my feelings.  But as we know, EA got exclusive rights to the NFL brand and so ended 2K’s franchise along with some others as well.

Halo: Reach multiplayer beta – Impressions

Posted in Impressions with tags , , , , , on May 6, 2010 by parasomia

The Halo: Reach multiplayer beta officially hit Live this past Monday.  If you were one of the lucky players who got a beta code or had previously bought Halo 3: ODST, then fun times were to be had.  In similar fashion to what Bungie did with Halo 3, they basically allow us to try out the multiplayer aspects of the game (albeit limited) to give us a taste of what to expect, but also to help them find any bugs or issues with the game so they can further tweak it before release.  After playing a few rounds this past week, I gotta say, touché.

UFC Undisputed 2010 Demo – Impressions

Posted in Impressions with tags , , , , , , on April 30, 2010 by parasomia

While UFC Undisputed 2010 is scheduled to hit shelves on May 25th, the big time fans just couldn’t wait to get a little taste of what was to come.  Enter the demo.  But it wouldn’t be a UFC Undisputed demo without a bit of controversy, now would it?  The demo doesn’t officially hit till next week, but if you are a registered user at the UFC Undisputed community website, then you received special access to the demo last night.  After a ton of fan abuse, a lot of confusion from the folks at THQ, and some overloading of servers, the demo codes were finally released for all registered users to enjoy.

Just Cause 2 – Impressions

Posted in Impressions with tags , , on March 27, 2010 by parasomia

Sometimes there are games that you really don’t notice or if you do notice, you don’t think much about it.  Just Cause 2 was one of those games for me.  I didn’t pay much attention to it and that’s probably due to the fact that I didn’t really touch the first game much.  Then something happened, I heard some people talking about it and saw some crazy videos, I just had to grab the demo off of Xbox Live.  Soon enough, I couldn’t put it down.  I wanted… to blow more stuff up!

Microsoft Game Room launched this week on the Xbox 360 and Games for Windows Live.  If you haven’t had a chance to check out it out then what you are waiting for!  Okay, Okay, you may not be a fan of retro gaming or you just might be too busy.  That’s fine, you’re no fun!  Seriously though, I had a chance to try it out a little bit and I have to say, I am enamored!

Final Fantasy XIII – Impression

Posted in Impressions with tags , , , , on March 6, 2010 by parasomia

Final Fantasy XIII is upon us.  I have to be honest, I’ve kept myself from reading too much information about the game.  I wanted to keep it a surprise to myself so when I finally played it – it would be a non-spoiled whole new experience.  After having a few hours to try it out what can I say?  Not too bad Square, not too bad.
