Pokemon X & Y Announcement Trailer Released

The official announcement trailer for Pokemon X & Y has been released. This is going to be the first handheld Pokemon game to feature 3D graphics.

Instead of going on a long rant about how I feel about this game, I want to here what you have to say, so I’ll conduct a little experiment; leave a one word comment about how you feel about this game, and I’ll tell you how I feel about it.

Slender: The Arrival Teaser Trailer Released

I must say I was a huge fan of the first Slender game. It was simple as hell, collect all 8 pages and survive being stalked by Slender man  Easy right? Hell no! The difficulty increases with each page collected.

But anyways, this isn’t about the original game (which you can get for free here: http://www.parsecproductions.net/slender/ ), this is about the amazing looking sequel/continuation of the first.

From what we can see, Slender: The Arrival boasts some impressive new graphics. The scenery shown looks astonishingly pretty. There are excellent outdoor textures, enticing indoor displays, and even old Slendy himself has gotten a graphical revamp.

Considering there is no playable demo out yet, I can’t speak for gameplay, but I honestly hope that it is similar to the first game. The gameplay was simple enough to jump right in and start playing, which was a relief for casual horror-gamers everywhere.

But what I really want to know is what’s your opinion of this? What do you think of the Slender series? Are you looking forward to Slender: The Arrival?

Remember, he's always watching you...

Star Trek: Into Darkness Trailer Opinion

First off, I’ve got to say, I’m no Star Trek buff, so I’m just going to be basing this off personal opinion and previous knowledge.

So in this trailer, we see the return of the crew of the Enterprise from the previous film. It starts off with a pretty cool narrative from Benedict Cumberbatch (who is rumored to play Khan). He is pretty much saying that the universe isn’t as safe as Star Fleet would like to think it is. The tone then switches to all out badassery. We see shit blow up, people fighting, more shit blowing up, and a slew of other things. We see an enormous ship rising out of the water, and what looks to me like the Enterprise crashing into another body of water (There’s going to be a good amount of water in this movie).

In my opinion, this teaser trailer is awesome. They hint just enough of the story to make it cool, and have the perfect amount of badass action in it.  I was in love with the first Star Trek movie by J.J Abrams, so my expectations are already set pretty high for this movie. Only time will tell how it will be, but for now, I’m looking forward to this.

Street Fighter x Megaman

From a brilliant fan comes Street Fighter x Megaman.

This glorious creation is a completely fan-made project created by Singaporean Seow Zong Hui (aka Sonic) and it looks phenomenal. A brilliant 2d side-scrolling adventure game reminiscent of the classic Megaman games, Street Fighter x Megaman has you going through levels (also reminiscent of classic Megaman) where you will eventually fight iconic bosses from the Street Fighter series.

This is a strictly PC game and will be completely  free-to-play. It’s launch date is December 17th.

To sum it all up, I’m madly in love with this project. If this lives up to all my expectations, you probably won’t be hearing from me for months, as I’ll be continuously be playing. Not to mention it’s free. ;D

Character Opinion: Hellboy

hellboy_comic_desktop_1680x1050_wallpaper-371033Let me just start by saying that I love Hellboy. It’s been one of my favorite comics for the past few years.

Hellboy was brought to our world near  the end of WWII, summoned by Grigori Rasputin. Hellboy was not the demon that was originally supposed to be summoned, but he slipped through the portal anyways. He was found by Professor Trevor “Broom” Bruttenholm.

Hellboy was raised on an Air Force base in New Mexico by the BPRD ( Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense), a secret association established to help fight occult threats. As an adult, Hellboy became the primary agent of the BPRD, working alongside Kate Corrigan, Abe Sapien, and Liz Sherman.

As stated in the opening paragraph, Hellboy is one of my favorite comic book heroes. Although he is not the most relate-able of characters, he has a human aura around him, making him pretty cool. I’ve ended up loving this character more than I ever thought I would. He’s just so damn cool!

A Little Something New: Character Opinions!

I’ve just recently decided that it would be fun to share some history and my opinion on some characters from video games, books, and movies! Which brings us to the point of this little update, my Character Opinion Spots! These will be little features on characters I find cool and interesting and will be beginning today, starting with Hellboy.

New Details of Bungie’s Project Destiny Surface

So we finally have some details on the mysterious Project Destiny. In a leaked document sent out on November 27th, 2012, many concept photos and story-line details were leaked onto the internet.

The story is set 700 years in the future in humanity’s last city, in a solar system covered with the ruins of the golden age of humans. A massive alien ship known only as “the Traveler” hangs over earth like a second moon, know one knows what it’s purpose is. In the meantime, alien creatures swarm from the outer reaches of space, determined only to steal earth and the last city from the humans. We are described as  “Young Knights” defending humanity from the alien threat.

The game was then went to be described as “Fun and accessible” and Bungie is hoping to have it be as in-depth as the Star Wars Universe. According to IGN, the game seems to be less mature than the previous Halo games created by Bungie. “Destiny is designed for your inner seven year old. We want to make it feel like a mythic adventure” Is what Bungie stated the game as being.

Here is the link to IGN’s post about this news: http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/11/28/destiny-story-details-concept-art-leaked

As an extra bonus for you all, here’s some of the concept art provided in the story.

BANNED GAME OF THE WEEK: EA Sports MMA

For the first time in Banned Game of the Week, we leave China! HOORAY!

This time, our banned game leaves up in Denmark. You see, Denmark has some strict policies against the distribution of energy drinks. And if you’ve played EA Sports MMA, you’ll know that their is some energy drink product plugs. So what does Denmark do? Bans the whole freaking game. Seriously? Why not just censor out the energy drink ads? That would have made a hell of a lot more sense than banning the whole game!

Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune: A Game Opinion

The Uncharted series has become viewed as a modern day beauty. It all began with Drake’s Fortune.

Uncharted is an interesting mixture of a game. It combines interesting platforming level with intense 3rd-person shooting. It takes a really good developer to pull that off, and Naughty Dog was just the developer to do it.

The graphics are beautiful, even for an early 2007 console release. With amazing flowing water textures, living plant life, and near life-like character animations, Uncharted still holds it’s beauty in 2012. After making Jak 3, Naughty Dog assembled their greatest art designers and programmers for Uncharted, and it definitely shows.

Overall, Uncharted is one of my favorite games on the ps3. I sadly have yet to play the other games in the series, but I know they must be even more spectacular that the first, which is an amazing feat.

New Uncharted Game in the Works?

On November 5th, a post on the Australian Classification Board’s Website was release stating the existence of a game titled “Uncharted: Fight for Fortune”.

The game is stated to be “Multi-Platform” and has a general rating of “G”.  The project is being led by One Loop Games, the company responsible for Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith, Full Spectrum Warrior, and The Saboteur.

One Loop recently stated that they had completed two secret projects one being stated as “They’re first big game”. Could this mean that Naughty Dog (The developers of the previous games) will not be responsible for the latest? Only time will tell! I’ll be sure to keep you updated on any breakthroughs that occur in the following weeks.

 

UPDATE!: This has been classified as a card/casino game. What? A card game based off Uncharted? This  could either be awesome or complete s***.
