Mass Effect 2 Review

Can a RPG have it all? All game genres have their inherent problems, but when it comes to RPGs there’s usually a separation between gameplay, story, and technical aspects. The better RPGs are usually good at two out of those, but rarely is there a game that’s great at all three. Mass Eff bounds better. The combat is good and just not “good for a RPG shooter”. ME2’s combat can hold its own against full-fledged 3rd person shooters.

Insomniac working with Microsoft?

At GDC, whispers have said that Insomniac Games has gone multiplatform.  For a long time they have been working with Sony making the Spyro, Ratchet and Clank and the Resistance series.  All of which are very popular franchises. 

Now it seems that they are trying to expand their horizon and release their games on multiple platforms, so what does this mean for their series?  Spyro has already been released on the Nintendo before and could go to the 360, but let’s be honest Spyro hasn’t been a high demand game in the last few years.  Both the Resistance’s games, and all the Ratchet and Clank games, have been published by Sony in the past, so the chances of these beloved series being used by Microsoft are very slim.

Drake’s Role In Gears Of War 3

As Gears of War grows older the cast of characters do too and part of the reason we all love this franchise is because some of it’s memorable characters such as Cole Train, Marcus and the rest of the group… and we love it because of chainsaw rifles.  With the new trailer that was release a few weeks back they introduced two new characters and while we’re still waiting on more information on the first woman gear ever seen in the game, we have some news on the other.  Aubrey Graham, aka Drake the rap artist, will be playing the role of Jace Stratton a character that was introduced in the comic books.  This will definitely be an interesting addition to the cast of characters and hopefully he’ll be fleshed out in the story and not just thrown in as another throw away character.  And maybe we’ll get another sick song in the credits like we did in the first game which still was one of my favorite parts of that game. 

This news does come at a surprise since Ice T. did talk about how he will be doing a part in Gears of War 3 which I originally thought was going to be Stratton but since it’s not, I’m curious to see what role he’ll play, if any.  Even with this news, all anyone really wants is some game-play demos and Cliff Bleszinski up on stage talking about what they’re doing different to make this game ten times better than the first two.  With E3 just around the corner that’s better be what we get so make sure to check back on all your video game news during the biggest show of the year.

Video Games Live!

Since the video game revolution really started plowing forward back in the mid 80s, one of the most underrated aspects of the aspects has been the music. The 8 and 16-bit processors that the Nintendo, Super Nintendo, and Sega Genesis systems could produce were not much more than melodic beeps and pings made to sound like a catchy tune.

Of course, times have changed. Now, many of the best and brightest games have scores composed by full orchestras or big time, main-stream bands, but those original compositions still bring back childhood memories of simpler times to go along with our simpler games. The themes from Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Mega Man, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Castlevania, are still lovingly talked about alongside the newcomers from Metal Gear Solid, Halo, and Kingdom Hearts.

With little time left till E3 officially kicks off, an interesting ad has leaked before Microsoft’s press conference. The ad in question is an Italian ad showing a new “slim” model of the Xbox 360. The ad in question is now gone, but that should not matter seeing that Microsoft will be showing it in the morning.

Aliens vs. Predator

Those three words sum up the entire premise behind Sega’s latest foray into the mature gaming world as they continue to try to distance themselves from a certain blue rodent. Aliens vs. Predator, the latest addition into a series that has been beaten to death with new iterations of the same name on nearly every system dating back over a decade, returns with what they are claiming is a brand new story, but is really just a rehashed version of the same old one Rebellion Developments and other developers have been pushing out for what seems like forever with this series.

Like in the previous installments of the game, this version of Aliens vs. Predator gives you the opportunity to take control of three different factions and play through their respective story lines. Unlike previous installments of the game though where there were three completely different story arcs, these three story arcs all interconnect.
