Fallout New Vegas Review

Well it's well overdue for a review and after playing it for a week I think I have a fairly good idea of what my opinion is.

To start off i'm going to set something straight. Some of you mightn't be able to understand this, I've seen people who haven't played the game declare it an expansion who have yet to play the game. This is far from an expansion. It may have the same game engine and a lot of silly bugs and freezes are still here but that's about it as far as the common ground the two games have eachother. To put it simply; Fallout New Vegas is Fallout 1 and 2 combined with the game engine of Fallout 3.

Killzone 3 Demo Hands On + Pre-Order Goodies In Helghast Edition!

Its no doubt that Killzone 2 is one of the best looking games on the PS3 the way it played, well that was a completely different story all together, but it was still a good game, however, not a great game sadly due to its clunky controls. Its great to see though that Killzone 3 has defiantly improved much of these problems making it the rank of the great game it finally deserved from the beginning.

Fallout New Vegas Collectors Edition Items Review.

On the afternoon of Friday, the 22nd of the 10th in year of the lord 2010. I ventured into Gamestop with fellow BLARGer Adam. It was the game we talked about for a year. The wait was well worth it especially for the near (Pardon the made up word here folks) JIZZTASTIC!.

I spent €80 on the collectors edition, So before I review the game, Allow me to review the actual boxset first.

The first thing i'd like to cover is "All Roads".
All Roads is 40 page graphic novel written by Chris Avellone. It basically tells the story of what happened prior to New Vegas, including Benny meating up with the "Great Khans". It was a great read all together although a bit annoying how we aren't really introduced to the Khans personally.

Next thing I'll talk about are the chips.
You get 8 chips in all. One from each of the major Casinos; The Tops, Ultra-Luxe, Atomic Wrangler etc. It's really nice to have these handy. Not because I intend to gamble/sell. Just to have around as a collectors item. This applies only to 7 of the 8 chips. The 8th chips is EXTRA special. The chip is the "Lucky 38 Platinum Chip" which the entire game is based around. It's even cooler how it is made of proper metal :P.

You also get a "The Making of New Vegas" DVD. I thought this was great. This is a behind the scenes 1 hour long ( At least I think it's that long) documentary of all the work that went into vegas, Featuring interview and such.

Finally but not least the Deck of "New Vegas" cards. Featuring various new Vegas characters with little catch-phrases underneath.

So overall I'd give this Collectors edition boxset 10/10.
This is well worth the price of €80 (Whatever currency it is where you are) and is a MUST for all Fallout fans.

Game On Exhibition 2010 Review (Dublin)

Grrrr.... Theusualtype is eating up alot of posts about his mad love for Nintendo in which I envy him, I am not mad into "family games" even though I posses a Wii and alot of my childhood was eaten up by the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. But I did get a nice trip to Game On in the Ambassador theatre to enjoy all the past and family games and to see how the gaming industry itself got to where it is today.

Fallout New Vegas Hardcore Mode W/ Other game Info.

Fallout New Vegas is probably the game i've looked forward to the most in my whole life. Recently I even bought my own Fallout 3 Bobblehead for €25 off Ebay.

Isn't it simply epic?, Anyway onto the tidbits.

The Professor Layton movie "The Eternal Diva" info + link

In about a fortnights time the latest addition to one of the best loved series of the decade, Professor Layton shall storm onto TV screens in his first movie. The eternal diva is set before the events of "The Curious Village" making it the earliest part of the Professor Layton series. This adventure follows Layton and Luke (On his first REAL mystery with the Professor) after they recieve a letter from Laytons old pupil, Jenis Quatlane. So the dynamic puzzle solving duo set out only to be trapped in a game of epic proportions.

A lot of people said that such an idea could not be done, "How could the puzzle section of Professor Layton work on a TV screen" The masses called out. Well I'm here to say that they captured it perfectly ( they even found a way to incorporate the games puzzle theme song when they were trying to solve the answer). Sure we don't get to solve the puzzles ourselves but we see how Layton solves them with his genious intuition. Don't think that just because this is set before The Curious Village that we won't see any of our favourite characters such as Don Paolo,

We get a brilliant introduction featuring all our favourites (Who were met in later games) including of course Barton and the well-loved inspector Chelmey.

However any extras they could have incorporated were added in, Such as Andrew Schrader the professors mentor (Who is working on the Pandoras Box as we can see it in the background)

So it would be a bit silly for me to give you this review and not include the link. Well I come bearing gifts via this link. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I have because this deserves 5 stars!

Link is Japenese with english subtitles.

Where to start? Gears Of War 3 gameplay was revealed at E3 to demonstrate the stunning graphics and the setting the game will take place in, but now its time to get down and dirty that is surely going to give you a hard on at first glance and probably get you wincing from disgust of the horrible executions that you will be jumping in the air about.

Nuns Reverse Reverse!

Bungie drops hint about Next game

Earlier this morning, Bungie employee Joseph Staten gave a small hint as to what the first non - Halo game made by Bungie may be like. Staten was giving a talk at GDC online, titled "Writing the Whirlwind" and it was inevitable that somebody would ask him about the new game and universe Bungie are creating, in partnership with Activision.

Halo Reach - Review

                                                  "From the Beginning, You Know The End"

This is what we know. We know that the events of this game directly impact the events of the Halo Trilogy. So with that in mind, lets get down to business.

Who Wants Some Fallout Cake?

Anybody want some delicious New Vegas cake? Well I sure as fuck do....

Gears Of War 3 DELAYED!

Well it looks like Cliff Bleszinski was completely wrong when he said you could totally sell a game in April quoting that "..Q1 is the new fall..", well considering that the game has been moved to fall of next year instead of its April 8 release, I say that's a bit of a bitch.....
