Scoring System

We are going to use number of beers it takes to enjoy this game fully...since we are under age and have never had any (*nervous cough*) we are going to "pretend" we know. The lower the number the better the game. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.

BioShock Review (with spoilers)

"I am Andrew Ryan, and I am here to ask you a question. Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow?

'No,' says the man in Washington, 'it belongs to the poor.'
'No,' says the man in the Vatican, 'it belongs to God.'
'No,' says the man in Moscow, 'it belongs to everyone.'

I rejected those answers. Instead, I chose something different. I chose the impossible. I chose...

Rapture." The first line of the game.
Ah. This is merely a hee-haw nostalgia review. I'll be reviewing the 1st Bioshock Game. Would you kindly listen. By my standards it has become a classic, I've never heard it enough times on how good this game is and how well they designed it. In most cases I agree. It is awesome to have telekinesis, pyro-kinesis, and electro-kinesis on your hands in a first person view where you actually feel like the character. They did a good job on that part, often I got scared and angry, frustrated; but I got concentrated in the game because of this kind of presentation. But the gameplay does get hairy at points, but if at first you don't succeed ...
You fail.
But most people when tell you when playing this game, as will I, is that the story, detail and remaining mystery is what makes this game good. You've been following the orders of a stranger thinking to get the bad-guys but in the end it turns out you were played all along! Your brain explodes at that information (or at least mine did, I get so emotional with the game)!
I love the way you can see the Video and hear the radio and audio recordings, it gives the game another level (Batman: AA did this and I love that game too).
The Big Daddies (I keep thinking they are pedophiles with that name and their "little sisters")when you fight them are attenuating and difficult, often I died. The bosses are as varied as you can get with a shooter and there are to possible endings to the game, depending on how you treated the little sisters. (in one you live a happy long life, the other you are evil.)
It is more rewarding (in ADAM) to be evil. That's all I will say. This is a classic and a definite rent or buy it. As inspirational in videogames as God Of War. I would love to get the second one to review for you and the others (donate now please!). Until the next Video Revision. --- Mystery Black

Fracture





" In the year 2161, survival of the fittest will take a whole new meaning. Cybernetically enhanced forces from the east will battle a genetically engineered army from the west, utilizing never-before seen terrain deforming weapons. The battlefield will never be the same."
Or will it? This is an old 2008 game from Lucasart that I got a long time ago but forgotten about it. It isn't a bad game, in fact its really good. It is just there are now so many games like it. The game is in a battle between the East Coast and West Coast (Tupac and Biggie Smalls anyone?).It was great because it had this terrain moving gun where you can shape how the battlefield is to your advantage. Besides that, it had multiplayer, good graphics and a wide selection of weapons to test out, along with vehicle challenges which I don't see in shooter games anymore. The game-play is third person instead of first person like most shooters are and it follows the story of Rhodey (War Machine from Iron Man anyone?) and eventually you get through many detailed and varied battlezones. It is very well done.
Yet I am going to sell it to be able to review other games for you. 1 out of 10 beers to enjoy because it feels too much like I've seen something like it before. (especially this giant walker Dreadnought thing which looks like something from Jak 3) ---- C U next time. Hee-Haw Mystery Black.

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 for PS3 (Extensive Review)

Superheros. They're good for Videogames right? What more than the untapped entertainment power of the thousands of Marvel characters. This was what I was thinking when I looked at Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 for the PS3. I had the first one for the PS2 and I liked it at the time, it had this re-playability factor and a sense of Epic with the amount of characters and the amazing music. Now for the sequel, I was expecting an overwhelming improvement over the first. So, let me tell you my impressions on this sequel.

Gameplay is smooth but generic, a few of the characters you play have very similar moves and styles, the proclaimed epic "fusion moves" where you combine powers of two superheros do good with a lot but combining similar people with the same powers get you the same kind of result, such as a person with a beam will always reflect the beam through Wolverine's claws or Captain America's shield to produce a clearing line. The melee fighting has been generic as the last one with light and heavy attack combos and numbers scrolling above the enemies on the screen. One improvement is that you can change the heros While you are fighting and that leaves room for some creativity and adaption. Plus for that. Grapics are a definite improvement over the last one, is well done but it is not spectacular.

Music is an extension of the game-play. I remeber in the first one they used a lot of classical instruments (flutes, scores of violins, thunderous drums) that gave an epic feel when fighting Giants and such. Sample Here from Youtube, you should listen to it. The sequel has a lot less giants, that disapointed me. But the feel of the music more using Techno and rock made you feel more bad-ass superhero controller than an ominous force. To me, music makes a large part of the game fun so that is why I Talk about it.

As for Voice acting: A lot of the characters sounded generic, but proffesionally well done, nothing wrong in it. It is incompatible with other voice actors like the Joker from Batman Arkham Asylum who sounded amazing. Some of the actors just sound like normal people with few breaks from monotone. But that doesn't matter.
The story is a different story. Excuse the cloy tautology. They advertised this game as following in part the Marvel Civil War which was an amazing series of comics following superheroes forced to register or get arrested, the series played on your views on laws and many of the superheroes fought against each other and died (including Goliath & Captain America, but I think he is reborn though ;)). They did follow vaguely it for what felt like sixty percent of the game. Then they got into this weird side-plot and out of place Nanomite story that just got me confused having read comics and never seeing that. In the previous one they had a cinematic in the end that shown the choices you made in the game had side-effects, narrated by Uatu the Watcher. They never shown that in MUA2. Again, disappointed but not complaining.

The game is easy to play in easy so if you get it play it in normal. Overall it is not a bad game, meets some expectations but lacks a *gasp* "WOW!!!" factor. It is a better sequel. So in amount of hypothetical Beers, this reviewer gives it a 3 out of 10 beers to fully enjoy.
Until Next Time---Mystery Black

Star Wars the Force Unleashed II ?



(click the photos to enlarge to 1080p HD)

Today I was at Gamestop and then this trailer caught my eye. It was one of my favorite video-game characters "Starkiller" from The Force Unleashed. You should have heard of it with its sales of 7 million units worldwide. **If you haven't finished/got the first one and care for spoilers stop reading this now**I thought maybe the trailer was of this alternate version of the game that I saw in Europe. But this wasn't it. He was conflicted, and now sporting two backward held lightsabers, in a stadium and about to face the baddest Rancor I've ever seen.

But then I thought: hee-haw wasn't that guy dead? (the trailer I was looking at had no audio) So this game has caught me by surprise. I thought they wouldn't make a sequel to this, the story was too good and fitting with his death (or turning into a crippled Sith in the alternate ending). So I searched it up. To me it looks as if the game has more conflicts of desires now. I am super excited and can't wait sense it seems to come out this year. My guess around the months of September to December. It is a wonderful surprise, I would love to buy it. I'll post a link to the promotion site here in case you would check it out.

inFamous


This game has been at a hee-haw of a request from my friends and I decided to finally review it. The game inFamous has been one of the three game I own for the PS3 that I have played all the levels more then twice. It is a thrilling game and has an enticing story. This game has an intrinsic setting where you can choose between good actions and evil actions and it would reflect in your powers. Instead of good, trusting blue lightning you would have red-black lightning which looks bad-ass. The powers you get for choosing good or evil also changes on your karma.

They executed the idea pretty well, and I have been a Sucker Punch (r) fan since their Sly series which were some of my favorites for the PS2, and I often still play them when I do have time. It was their first game for the PS3 and goes really up to my expectations.

The game-play is an okay kind of third person shooting/fighting superhero. And the city you play in is extensive. I definitely have no regrets with this game, but I do think there is room for improvement. (on accord to the down-loadable add-on, its okay and works but is too easy to kill civvies in the process) 1/10 Theoretical beers to enjoy. -- Catch ya next time. Mystery Black.


My Top 10 Movies found in Blu-Ray

I'll give you my list of the top ten Movies to own on Blu-Ray and a reason for it. The PS3 is great because it has Blu-Ray. Feel free to provide feedback. ---Mystery Black
Number 1: Batman The Dark Knight. So I have a spot for my only favorite D.C. Character. So it is from 2008 and has arguably one of the best ways to make a superhero movie. Amazing acting from the joker, Imax that shows on the screen, all the details you see are actually worth seeing. The action is splendid and the Drama is Realistic. The special features on the disk were actually insightful and I liked it. In the Blu-Ray Disk the screen shifts based on the Imax and regular camera, but the scenes are constant and it gives you plenty of stuff to watch besides the movie. It was well executed the way they released it.

Number 2: Avatar. It just got released and it is awesome, the image is crystal clear and full screen all the way, details again are worth watching (and its safe for the kids), however, there are no special features, and the story is good but not too much in my opinion. That is why it gets number 2, sometimes #2 happens you know?

Number 3: Blade Runner. You have to love the classics. This has been a favorite movie of mine because my father introduced me to it. With Harrison Ford in the mix the story itself plays out, and the movie continues to have influence with Science Fiction today (Recently with The Movie Gamer, and Moon). It is visually stunning for its time and deserves to at least be rented and seen once by any man who likes good fiction.

Number 4: 300. "This is Blasphemy, this is Madness, This IS SPARTA!" Who wouldn't want their minds boggled with CGI Blood squirting across the screen and seeing fantastic fights and feats of soldiers. You know its good.(I didn't think to put Watchmen in here because you would think of some dominance of blue people.)

Number 5: The Descent. This is mainly for those who like horror, and GORE. They did a really good job in making this, its affect of horror is straight out, no disappointment on my Side.

Number 6: Star Trek. I am surprised on how low this actually gets on the list but you know why this comes recommended. Visually, and acoustically, it is a BLAST.!!! Beyond awesome, plus you can find it paired with a Digital Copy which is fun to have on Your IPod or IPad and the IPad Mini(The IPhone). Or tap it in to the zune-iverse.

Number 7: Transformers. This is a Tie between one or two, But mainly because i love the sound these robots make. I was disappointed with the second one because it had scenes in IMAX I saw in theaters that were cut down to normal size in the movie. Its great to have for your sound system.

Number 8: BBC Planet Earth on Blu-Ray. A lot of people are recommending this for Blu-Ray, it has been on the top ten spots for many people of many sites and so on, it must be awesome to look at.

Number 9: 2012. From the King of Disaster movies like the American Godzilla. It is one movie that leaves you thinking, great to watch everything explode right in front of your eyes. In the two disc set, you see deleted scenes and alternate endings and an interactive Mayan Calendar. You get a sense of scale with this movie. It is great. Also from this guy I have 10,000 B.C. which I recommend but not it is not the best.

Number 10: 2001 A Space Odyssey. Yet another classic, beyond time, it is great to watch in standard, a beautiful sleeping aid for many people ;) and in HD you get to see all the details that were skipped in the '60's and see what they can't get away with now. They really did well restoring colors. Plus the extras are great.
Basis of Ranks: Story Quality and Visual ecstasy given. Do you Disagree with my list? please comment so.
Other recommended Blu-Rays: Terminator Salvation, Indiana Jones 4, Spider-Man 3, X-Men Origins Wolverine. Don't forget to help us by donating or sharing this site. Please? ----Until Next time. --Mystery Black.

Batman Arkham has moved




Quick game news for you. As you may now i reviewed batman arkham asylum, it is one of my favorite games as I have allready told you. Batman: Arkham Ayslum had sold 2.5 million units worldwide and got th Guinness World Record as the “Most Critically Acclaimed Superhero Game Ever”. Now I am excited to see that a sequel to that is in development. So far it is called "Batman Arkham has moved."
There is lots of talk and a bit of confirmation of future vilains including Satana Katic as Talia Al Ghul, Kevin Konroy as Two-Face and a guy from futurama as Mr. Freeze.
Sounds pretty cool and i can't wait to see it come out. They set out a teaser trailer and a promotion website: http://www.arkhamhasmoved.com/
There you see an awesome looking trailer. or if you don't trust the site just search Batman Arkham has moved on youtube. that should get you the trailer.

That's enough, Catch you next time. --- Mystery Black

-Superman

ReiPost Script: I agree. But who doesn't love K.O.-ing goons! -- MysteryBlack

Soldner-X: Himmelsturmer

I recently read on the interwebz that the sequel to this shump would be out soon so i decided to beat it once more. I remembered why i loved this game originally. It is a 3D 2D sidescroller that pits you against the world, earning continues the more you play. I beat the game without a continue (barely) last night and man those short cutscenes and 10,000 enemies i killed really entertained me for the hour + it took me. This game needs 2 out of 10 REAL beers to enjoy fully, mostly because we have all seen this story before and might wanna develop ignorance. It is on the PSN and will probably be a bundle soon with the sequel so get it! Worth the money you cheap bastards would be using for porn anyways. So, get this and learn a little german.

Batman Arkham Asylum




"Welcome to the Madhouse Batman"
Hee-Haw it may be late to review this but I say Batman Arkham Asylum is the best game of 2009. It has the best feel for a batman game. The gameplay holds you able to become a hard to the core fighter where you take on many at once, with your moves and gadgets, or just go to a ninja-like style, hide in the shadows and take them one by one preying on their fear. The gameplay is beyond phenomenal and there are few errors, the game never freezes or does weird %^&* like others tend to do. In fact the only error I've encountered was his cape coming through a wall after rolling and pointing the camera at ground level. Now for the "special features on the PS3." It's free downloadable content that goes into challenge mode of the game (which by the way shows how you compare to 70,000 other people who've played the challenges. I rank mostly around 30,000th). They accentuate the play as joker for PS3 mode. I found him, compared to Batman, a little more slow but steady. The challenges for him are hard but it needs to be like that. The story in the game was acceptable, Nerd win to having having Luke Skywalker from the '80's to play the joker, bosses were varied (my least favorite was in Croc's lair), and the game has a tremendous amount of puzzles and details in the levels. It is a game to BUY FULL price.

The N-Game



A lot of my friends were playing this game instead of doing their work and I decided to check it out since its title seems to mildly hint at racism. Okay so i figured out the controls and played it for a while. It is terrible, don't ever go near it. It is too bad to be popular. There is a slight hint of addiction to other people because it requires skill. Don't get close to this game. (yet I will post the link because I don't know why). 5/10 theoretical beers--Mystery Black again. C U later.
