What a momentous week it was! Gamescom only recently came to a close and already next year’s event is dated for August 17th through August 21st, 2011. This year’s show was great, though.
But who won? To me, it was Sony, hands down. Microsoft’s presser was poor.
This weekend, I’ll be playing LittleBigPlanet all over again with my wife; the woman just loves that game! At least it preps me for the sequel which is obviously a must buy. She’ll divorce me if I don’t!
On Saturday morning, I’ll be attending a seminar, the topic being: How to keep the family together. Should really be something. And later, I’ll definitely be trying my hands, yet again, at Resistance: Fall of Man. I’m even thinking about doing a retro review of the game but I haven’t made up my mind as of yet.
What about you? Who do you think won Gamescom, and what was the biggest reveal? For me, that Mass Effect 2 announcement killed even the Resistance 3 unveiling.
Also, what are you up to? let it be known, GT!
Yeah, Sony won! No question about that. Mass Effect 2 PS3 was huge, Resistance 3 was huge, GT5 was Huge (best of show), etc etc.
As for this weekend, I have some Matlab GUI code to finish up for a course I’m taking at WSU.
Gaming wise there are some demos I
downloaded that I need to play and I might get a PSN title (still debating).
What PSN title are you thinking of? Are you into RPGs? How about Final Fantasy 7 or even 8? And you’re taking a GUI course at WSU, that’s awesome. What field are you looking to go into?
I’m a Mechanical Engineering major at WSU: graduate this November The GUI is just a project for one of my classes. The quarter ended yesterday for most people but this course is done whenever I complete the aforementioned project (it’s like independent study-I check in with the prof and show
As for that PSN game…..don’t really like RPGs …maybe I’ll get Joe Danger. I have the demo downloaded but haven’t tried it out yet. It all depends on whether I like it though.
Understood. Keep up the great work in school, bro. I wish you much success blessings with all your endeavors.
Joe Danger? Tell me what it’s like when you’ve checked out the demo.
Thanks and yeah, I’ll let you know.
I wish I was graduating in November. I still have 3 more semesters before I am done.
I am excited about the new Ratchet and Clank game. I love the Ratchet universe and the fact it is co-op is really amazing. I just don’t understand why Dr. Nefairous is working with the good guys.
Dr. Nefairous working with the good guys might be a ploy; I’m almost sure.
Also, before you blink, you’ll be done, man. Keep working hard and much success and blessings to you also.
I am also getting my Masters after I graduate. So, I will be heading right back to school, but it will be work it in the end.
I meant it will be worth it in the end, not work it. lol. I really do not look at what I write. lol.
Wow, nice going man! What are you studying? Again, much success; and forget about the typo, we all make ‘em : )
I am an English major and I rarely make typos on papers, but when I write comments on things I will make typos galore.
Oh nice! English was mines, too. Loved the subject to the core. Although I must admit I’ve made some typos myself – still make them. But whatever, it’s nothing. Keep it going, man. Keep it going until you attain the success you want!
RedBullGT33, you’ll be done before you know it. Time goes by really fast when you’re in school.
Exactly. Really, really fast.
True but it will be a tough few semesters. I just started this past week and I already have 4 papers due, luckily I love writing.
Has anyone played Mass Effect 2 on xbox? I played the first, but not the second game. Is it as amazing as everyone says?
Man, that game is one of the best ever forged. No joke.
RPGs aren’t really my thing but when you put it like that, backed up by all the other critical acclaim, I think I’ll have to give it a go when it comes to PS3 in January.
RedBullGT33, is that Ninja Gaiden?
@ ExclusivesMostly: Do yourself a favor, bro. You’ll really enjoy it. Story, gameplay, narration – almost everything in the game is beautifully put.
Decisions are important, too. So make wise choices.
Ok I will.
Yeah, it is Ninja Gaiden. Also, do you like 3rd person shooters, if so it is a good game to play. I only played the first one, and I am not a big RPG person, but i loved it.
RedBullGT33 said in another post that his avatar’s indeed Ninja Gaiden 2.
Sharp eyes there.
@RedBullGT33: Oh ok. Cool
@Ernice: sharp eyes indeed, lol.
I never would have made it out! I need to pay attention when to the games I play lol. Nice avatar, though.
Oh and yes I do like third person shooters: My favorite game in the aforementioned genre is Uncharted 2.
Yeah Ernice, lol
I am absolutely in love with Uncharted 2. lol. I have put 5 days worth of playtime in the multiplayer and I still play it every night.
Does anyone play MAG?
Uncharted: Drakes Fortune wasn’t too bad either. In fact, I think I’ll be giving the game another run. Uncharted 2, though, best game yet. Imagine what Uncharted 3 will be like.
Just thinking about it gets me excited.
MAG’s good. Online only, though. They should have had a single player campaign but I guess that’s where SOCOM 4 comes in?
But MAG’s a really good game. Just doesn’t get the recognition it deserves.
I have MAG and love it, and I was just wondering if anyone else played it. They are going to start a new beta for it next week to test some new ideas. Here is a link to the story.
Checking it out now…
Yeah Ucharted 2 is…….enchanting. That game is amazing in so many ways. As for MAG, I tried the initial Beta but never really got the game. Cool idea though. I just never got into like that.
sony hands down, as usual M$ failed to bring the show.
and i thought there E3 demonstration was pathetic!
im selling my 360 tomorrow, im just sick of seeing it sitting there gathering dust and burning a hole in my wallet!
might as well get rid of it and put the credit towards some games.
Man 2011 is not looking so good for the 360. I mean Sony announced so many exclusives and they’re gonna reveal a couple more at TGS.
yeah besides gears 3 theres not one 360 exclusive i want.
o, and project kingdoms the game being made by crytek but thats not going to be out for a long, long, long time!
on a side note i started making my game today, im going for a top down platformer kinda like bionic commando rearmed.
hopefully ill have it done by next weekend, my teacher said he will give me extra credit if i get it completed.
its actually allot harder than i was expecting, not even half a level completed and ive got so many errors to fix!
god, who thought programming could be so time consuming?
amazes me even more how insomniac do what they do in the matter of a year or so!
dunno how they do it, but they must go through a thousand red bull cans a day!
I agree about the 360, I am only keeping it to play Gears of War 3. I have a true obsession with a series. Good luck on your game, I love top down platformers. Platformers and third person action adventure games are my favorite.
Nick, do we get to test out that game? It’d be awesome.
Yeah good luck on your game nick. And yes it would be great to see the final build.
looking forward to it : )
lol, thanks guys.
ill see how it goes, ive got 2 assignments i got today so i might have to put the game on hold.
especially since my games design teacher is a little miffed at me because last time i kinda copied some environments.
need to make sure i get it right this time, otherwise he will have my head!
