Would you kindly...Purchase this game!Bulletter | Oct. 13, 2013 | Review of BioShock Infinite (NA)
This is a MUST play game. If you like story, great art direction and a screwed up make-you-think ending then I will say it again because it bares repeating - this is a must play game. If you are a fan of the Bioshock 1 and 2 then I probably don't have to sell you on why you should pick this up but if you are new to the franchise and are looking for a FPS with different combat mechanics and actual story you want to get lost in and a darkened Disney-esque princess you have to save then this is the game you are looking for. the story deals with shades of political and racial tensions without burdening you with having to join in on the discussion so you never feel awkward or out of place with it. You are in Columbia to do a job and that job is told so well that any underline story arcs are just icing on the cake.The combat is fast and furious with vigors at your side like super powers. Elizabeth is alive and helpful and even though you never need to protect her you will come to want to. Overall this game is like losing a child at an amusement park. There is a lot to see and do and be distracted by but your primary mission is always ahead of you and just want to delve in deeper.
Very Good Stealth/Action GameBulletter | Oct. 13, 2013 | Review of Dishonored™ Game of the Year Edition (NA)
This is one of those types of games that allows you to play the way you want to play. You can treat it like a stealth game and got all sneaky or you can whip out your trusty blade and pistol and do damage. I chose stealth for the added difficulty and found it to be very fun. It has a solid story with a couple of characters you may come to care about so that doesn't hurt either. Overall it's a solid game with a very good sense of style and art direction. I hope they make a sequel to this.
Solid Stealth FunBulletter | Oct. 3, 2013 | Review of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell - Blacklist (NA) [Playfire]
Ok let's get the little bit of bad out of the way. The replaced Michael Ironside for a new voice actor. Now Fisher sounds younger than his grown daughter whom you can call in between missions. Ok, now that we are over that, the game is excellent. It's pretty much play-how-you-want stealth. The game rewards you more for staying quiet but you still get some decent end mission cash for going in guns blazing. Speaking of in between missions, that's where you can buy and upgrade your gear and your airplane to make future missions go the way you want. There are several well put together coop missions also if you want a buddy to join in. One of the major things I liked about this game is that the story is easy to understand. Usually in these government shooters the story is convoluted and hard to follow. Not here. There are bad people trying to do bad things and you need to put a bullet in their face. Got it. Overall if you enjoy the Splinter Cell series or are new to it this game allows you to be the spy you want to be not the one the developers want you to be.
Gritty, Modern, Old School AwesomenessBulletter | Oct. 3, 2013 | Review of Max Payne 3
I was hating at first on this game because it strayed from the noir style of the first two but after beating the game...then beating the game.... then beating the game yet again I'm still in love with good ol' Max. If you don't know Max hates himself, his lie and everyone around him and always winds up in trouble that only bullets can fix. Duck and cover, bullet time, kill cams and a nice variety of weapons round things out to help deliver the Payne. It's nice to play a game where you need to pick up health packs (in the form of pills) instead of your typical regen of health. Overall I loved it and keep it installed on my computer for those times I just want to shoot people in the face and not be bogged down by annoying things.
Decent Action GameBulletter | Oct. 3, 2013 | Review of Resident Evil 6
The truth is this is a decent action game with several interwoven stories that barely sync up in any meaningful way but it's NOT a Resident Evil game per se or even a "survival horror" game. If this game were called something else and not associated with Resident Evil it probably would have done a lot better and would have been looked at differently. There are mode outside of the story that are basically survive until time runs out and you can now buy the skills you want in your load out including infinite ammo after you have beaten all the chapters. Ada Wong's story is the only story mode I still play. Her story is the closest, and I use that liberally, to a Resident Evil story. She's solo and has 2 or 3 actual puzzles to solve. Overall. if it's on sale and you're bored pick it up. Other than that - meh.
