movie games that wouldnt suck!!!

For the most part I think we as gamers can agree that movie games suck. The some is usually true in reverse too. Generally movies made  from games suck too. To me a good game is like a long movie that you can interact with. Some of my favorite games that support this idea is Mass Effect, Metal Gear, and Uncharted. Games like those make you feel like you are a part of the experience while at the same time watching a 20 to 40 and up hour movie. It would seem like games and movies would be the perfect marriage, but that isn’t always the case. So I decided to come up with a list of games and movies that would be wonderful together.

XBOX 360 under seige!!!

This morning at approximately 8 am I  woke up to the sound of my alarm. Everything seemed fine and it was looking like a normal Monday morning . Still waking up I make my way to the hallway adjacent to my den where my television and gaming devices are setup. This is where things get a little interesting I look down to find my XBOX faceplate on the ground, in the hallway approximately 10 feet away from where it should be and about 5 feet further down.  Continue reading ‘XBOX 360 under seige!!!’

capcom owes me a new controller!

Not my controller just an image I found online

Ever been playing a game and get a bit frustrated? Has that frustration ever made you throw your controller? Well that what happened to me today. What would make a grown man throw a controller you ask? Super Street Fighter 4. There are time when you get so into a game when the controller doesn’t do what you want it to do you get a little pissed. I have seen times online where I know people have thrown their controllers. One time I was watching a friend play the aforementioned game online. The person her was against was playing with Akuma. My friend picked Zangief. His opponent was probably thinking he had an easy win. Last round of the game tied up. Here comes Akuma with a death strike. He glided across the board for what seemed like a sure victory.

Gamer Rant: quality

NBA 2k10 by 2k sports is one of my favorite games and game series, but playing it sometimes can be more frustrating than fun. No not because I am playing a tough opponent, but because of all the glitches. I have been playing 2k since the very first installment on the Dreamcast. It has always been buggy but each year the overall game improved. This years game is not exception. This years version add a wonderful new mode called My Player. In this mode you start as a walk on in the summer league, and go on to the D league or NBA. Think of it as a Basketball RPG. This mode is very addicting as anyone who has played it knows, but it is also very buggy. It is sometimes buggy to the point that it feels like a beta version, it has already had 2 patches to fix problems with freezing, and duplicating players to name a couple problems.
