If you liked Borderlands, what the hell are you waiting for!?YoshihitoBLM | Nov. 9, 2013 | Review of Borderlands 2: Game of the Year Edition (NA)
This game improves upon Borderlands in every way. Sure, it looks and feels the same but you're getting new characters, new guns and new ways to blow the crap out of your enemies!
The gunplay still feels spot on, I prefer to snipe so hitting those long range head shots is easy yet challenging enough to keep it engaging. The new characters also make for some interesting fun! Getting that new skill for them is rewarding and fun to play around with.
The backup characters (esp. Tiny Tina) are downright hilarious! It's never a dull moment with this game. You're either having fun popping heads or laughing your ass off!
All in all. This game is a must have for any Borderlands fan or even for someone completely new to the series. You really don't need to play the first game to enjoy it but I suggest getting the first one as well, it's so cheap now!
Minecraft with guns!!!YoshihitoBLM | Nov. 9, 2013 | Review of Guncraft
I had more fun with this game than I thought. I normally don't like FPS games but this one surprised me somewhat. Yes, it's a lot like Minecraft in the fact that you can build things out of blocks. But what truly makes this game fun is the fact that not only can you design your own battlefields, you can make your own guns!
Want a gun that looks like a chicken but fires explosive rounds that decimate the battlefield? You can make it! Want to emulate your favorite gun? You can make it!
And to expand on the building your own battlefield. Say you play Minecraft and you've built some pretty impressive things. Now say you want to do the same in Guncraft but don't want to have to build it all over again. No problem, you can import it! Imagine running around Minis Tirith or battling across an Enterprise.
While the FPS portion is fairly mediocre, it still gives you some pleasure popping peoples heads! You're only limited by your imagination in this game with the building and gun building aspect of it.
More of the same...YoshihitoBLM | Nov. 9, 2013 | Review of Call of Duty: Ghosts (NA)
While the Call of Duty franchise has managed to push out polished FPS games, they remain more or less the same. The graphics in this game are truly top notch but sadly that's really the only praise. Nothing truly new is done here. They have the same tried and true multiplayer system and while the action feels spot on, some minor bugs haven't been patched yet. There is no doubt it will become more polished, but once that happens you're going to be playing what you've been playing with all the other games.
An MMO in SpaceYoshihitoBLM | Aug. 7, 2013 | Review of Eve Online 30 Day Starter Pack - Amarr Bounty Hunter 4 Pack
A lot of people are turned off by the real-time training of skills in this game but I find it rather ingenious. EVE makes you really work at what you have and when you finally get that skill you've wanted to Level 5 you feel good about it. The economy is purely player driven and just about everything can be crafted by the player. Alliances form and take over solar system after solar system until they have a wealth of systems at their disposal. The universe in this game is vast and it grows all the time. What do you like in a game? Do you just like to kill enemy NPC's, salvage their remains and turn a profit off what you gathered? Do you like to mine for hours on end and sell the fruits of your labor? Or would you rather join an Alliance and take part in epic battles that encompass entire systems where you have the chance to lose everything you've built for yourself? This game has consequences that most don't and I think that puts it a step above everyone else.
