speaking of halo, the new b.net's up and running, so go check it out.
Spiderman 3 fight scene revealed!!!
Yup exactly what that says. Check it out in youtube. I'm still gonna describe it here anyway. Spoilers!!! Dont read from here onwards if u dont wanna know what its all about.
The scene begins with MJ and Peter laying on a web in the park talking -- you'll know about this scene if you've paid attention to the trailer and seen previously released production stills. Peter is visiting Aunt May and he tells her he's decided to marry Mary Jane. "That's so wonderful," she says, and she gives Peter her engagement ring to offer MJ.
CUT TO: Peter is on his scooter in the city, in normal street clothes, and Harry Osborn swoops in out of nowhere sporting a Hobgoblin-like look. He is fully dressed in black, with tough-looking Oscorp body armor. He has knives that pop out from his arms, and he wears a black mask -- like Scorpion's mask from Mortal Kombat, but is mostly black. He is riding what looks like a badass version of a Back to the Future hoverboard which flies much like the Green Goblin's rocket sled. Peter and Harry fly through the city fighting in what is probably the most brutal battle seen in the Spidey flick series thus far. As Peter swings from building to building, Harry flies along with him and they exchange powerful blows. Harry slashes Peter's chest. Peter fires balls of webbing at Harry and manages to obscure his vision, but this doesn't slow him down for long. Harry flies after him, knocking him off of every perch, while Peter continues to fire webs -- remember he's not even dressed as Spider-Man at this point. In the scene's climax, Harry chases Peter into a narrow alley and hurls flying pumpkin-shaped razor weapons at him. Peter knocks them out of the air, and manages to send one flying back towards Harry. It cuts into Harry's shoulder and he gets distracted, trying to pull it out. Peter takes advantace of this distraction to set a tripline using a web. This knocks Harry off of his board and sends him falling to the ground, hitting a number of things on the way down. The scene ends with Harry laying on the ground unconscious and Peter swinging down to try and help him... but things don't look good for the young Mr. Osborn.
More Spiderman stuff
Except this time, its about his game for number 3. A lotta awesome stuff happening to this 1, and i'm willing to bet it'll be the best hero game anyone has every seen yet. Ok. Lets start with the basics. Hero games are a genre of games that rarely gets praised. People love to diss them. Its really simple. Either you make one that sucks or 1 that freakin rocks. An example. Ravensoft made xmen legends 1 and 2. Both didn't really fare well with the critics. Then they made Marvel Ultimate Alliance and wham!! It was a blast to play, and it could easily be considered the ultimate superhero game. Now you get the picture. Back to Spidey games. First one in full 3D was "Spiderman: The movie" the videogame. Ok...being the Spidey fan i am, i'll still have to say this one sucked. The civillians and Spidey himself were okay looking, but the city was downright ugly. Too bad you have to see it every where you turn. Then came Spiderman 2: the videogame. This one had some standard. It was fun to swing around and beat the crap outta bad guys. Had some cool bosses too, like Shocker and R.H.I.N.O. This time round, we were treated to the best looking city and Spidey ever seen in a video game, but the once human looking civillians now looked like oddly jointed and very pointy shapes. Their mouths did not move during conversation and there were only a small variety of people. Very very dull. Then came the City Events. These gave us something else to do other than swinging around in between missions. Some were fun, most weren't. Then finally came Ultimate Spiderman, a videogame of one of my favourite comic series. This game had the most bosses in any Spidey game so far, and the biggest city. Graphics were not an issue as it had cartoon graphics to give it the comic book feel. Real cool cutscenes. This one had some real time events as well. But the big major problem? All levels are the same. You chase a boss down, then you own him. Thats it, all 12 or so levels of it. Not doing much to keep you interested are they?? Also, this games really quite difficult at first go, but if you play it the second time, you'll finish it in 2 damn hours. See the contrast?? Not very exciting any more.
Then Spiderman 3: the video game. If i had to use one sentence to discribe it: 'I'm freaking gonna buy this 1.' One word? 'Awesome.' Seriously, i've got the feeling this ones gonna be big. First. I've never ever seen this many people this excited to play a hero game. Its on 66 000 people's wishlists (myself included) on gamespot.com alone. Then now comes the latest news. This games gonna have a New York 2.5 times bigger than in Spiderman 2. You now get to explore the underground as well. And all this is gonna be in full HD. Wheeee. Huge playground we're gonna get. Next. The people. Cool. They actually look human this time. Well, they may not be the best looking graphics i've ever seen ( GoW's pretty much to blame ), but at least they are flowing with next gen. Third. It's freaking real time. For those who dunno what real time is, its a sequence of events that allows you to choose your every move, altering the outcome of the battle with each and every one of em. Fourth. The interaction. This one's the awesomeness. Remember all those irritating boss battles in previous spiderman games that somehow blocked you into a small area to fight a boss. Well, goodbye to that. Picture this: Spiderman gets attacked by the Sandman in a building. Every super powered punch and kick they throw has individual effects. For example. Sandman clubs Spidey upwards. Instead of just getting damaged, Spidey crashes through the freaking ceiling, taking the battle to a whole different environment. Then Spidey recovers and kicks Sandman in the chest. He crashes through the wall and smashes into the road below. Instead of just walking as if nothing just happened, the people start running, screaming and so on. Cars skid to avoid the Sandman and a collision ensues. At this point, Spidey can either lead the Sandman to somewhere with less civilians or he could just leap down and continue the fight. Cool right? Fifth. Also you've got Spider Sense, so you'll be able to dodge many things. Another example, the Lizard starts flinging car after car at you. Instead of just getting spammed to death, flick on spider sense. Time slows, and you jump from one flying car to another, slip between two more, than punch the Lizard several times before he even knows what's happening. And the final reason: The Black Suit. 40% of the game's about this one. With it, you'll have more health, be able to leap further and hit harder, but enemies will start to swarm around you more often. Also, you'll face much tougher bosses during these parts of the game. So, dunno how good it'll be, but no matter what, i'm still buying it. Here are some pics:
Heh. He has 40 bones in that b***hin tail alone, thats how next gen it is.
The interaction stuff i was so excited about.
Top 10 [The position range in class that i am so not in]
Hahaha thats true. with my wonderful results, it'll be a wonder if im even in the top 30. And even better still, there's only 34 people in the class. Wheee. So whats it gonna be this time??? Well, you know its gonna be something about games right?? I mean, Gaming is like my Crack you know? except its legal so its not that bad.
Top 10 most anticipated games of 2007
10. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption [Wii]
Hey wait a sec...oh man. Samus is back for more. Yay to that. For those of you who dunno who Samus is, she is the only balless legend worth mentioning. Yes she's a babe. In a kick ass suit of armour. Yay to that. Again. The Galactic Federation's Base Sector Zero is under attack by Space Pirates. Samus must boot up the generator to restore the defense systems. But at the end of her path, someone awful is waiting for her. The war initiated by Dark Samus and the Space Pirates rages across many planets as they attempt to corrupt each with Phazon seeds. Players use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to explore alien landscapes, hunt for weapons and information, and destroy the seeds. Saving the planets from Corruption isn't enough, though. Eventually, players must take down Samus' mortal enemy, Dark Samus. Besides using the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers to pull off amazing feats like aiming and blasting in midair or at a full run, players also will have an array of different weapons at their disposal.
Samus n Master Chief would make a good couple...
9. Super Smash Bros. Brawl [Wii]
Yeah this one's gonna be fun. All Nitendo characters included. Solid Snake's been slipped in as well. This is gonna be one heck of a fight. So...since not much has been revealed about this 1, i'll just give you a list of special guests in the game:
Pit (Kid Icarus)
Solid Snake (Metal Gear Solid)
Zero Suit Samus (the blue "no-suit" Samus from Metroid: Zero Mission)
Yea all these plus many more like Mario, Kirby, Link and of course Pikachu (dont laugh at this name cuz you probably went after one in your gameboy version of pokemon). And may i turn all your attention to Zero suit samus. You think she's crap with the suit then you should see her without it. N no, she still has something on sorry about that. (Dont take the zero suit part literally, it is a game meant for everyone young and old)
Snake gets his butt kicked...by a girl?! Wtf...
8. Mass Effect [Xbox 360]
Set 200 years in the future in an epic universe, Mass Effect places gamers in a vast galactic community in danger of being conquered by a legendary agent gone rogue. A spectacular new vision from legendary developers BioWare, Mass Effect challenges players to lead a squad of freedom fighters as they struggle against threatening armies to restore peace in the land.
Mass Effect is the first in a trilogy of games with an overarching story. As the first human Specter – sworn defenders of galactic peace – your mission is to halt the advancing armies of a legendary agent gone rogue. But as you lead your elite team across hostile alien worlds, you will discover the true threat is far greater than anyone imagined. Sounds cool?? Play it plays cool too. Who knows?? Maybe i'll just pick this 1 up..
7. Crysis [PC]
A next-generation project by CryTek, makers of the dazzling FPS Far Cry. This game is running on the new CryENGINE 2 technology. The game is one of the the first announced to run on the advanced DirectX 10 architecture. Set in 2019 after a colossal asteroid crashes to Earth, Crysis begins amidst a tense military standoff between the North Korean and United States governments for control of the impact zone. Amid rising tensions, the asteroid suddenly bursts open revealing a massive alien ship, which begins freezing vast portions of the island and altering the global weather system. The invasion of Earth has begun. Crysis features an epic three-act story of alien invasion where players are able to customize their armor and weapons in real time to confront an ever-changing enemy and a harsh, dynamic environment. And don't just put it in your com n bitch about the lousy graphic quality, cuz its not at its full potential unless you've got Vista and Direct X 10 in your com...as well as aXFXGeForce 8800GTX XXX graphics card (bye bye $1 159) and a HD screen.
Oh umm...forgot about the door...
6. Bioshock [PC/XB360]
Hey get back here, you slippery little b****!!
5.Grand Theft Auto IV [PS3/Xbox 360]
Ermm..so not much of this 1 has been revealed..so um...well, its an open world sandbox game from Rockstar studios. N its really open. Air, sea, undersea, land gameplay all included. Your character is probably gonna be a nig, and with them comes a lotta guns, we all know that. Really nothing else to say, you people should know how GTA plays, if not welcome to the year 2007, it's about time you crawled out from under your rock.
They really meant the next gen graphics..
4. Super Mario Galaxy [Wii]
As always with any Nintendo game console, the first Super Mario game is one of the defining experiences on the system. Join Mario as he ushers in a new era of video games, defying gravity across all the planets in the galaxy. When some creature escapes into space with Princess Peach, Mario gives chase, exploring bizarre planets all across the galaxy. Since he's in space, Mario can perform mind-bending jumps unlike anything he’s done before. He'll also have a wealth of new moves that are all based around tilting, pointing and shaking the Wii Remote. So um..if you've got a Wii, you wouldn't mind getting this 1, its one of the better titles on the system.
Just how the heck did the italian plumber last this many years??
3. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots [PS3]
Announced in November of 2004 (and finally presented officially at E3 2005 by Hideo Kojima). The title is a next-generation adventure set in the aftermath of MGS2: Sons of Liberty. Kojima is in charge of as game design, production, and direction (along with additional director Shuyo Murata), with Ken-Ichiro Imaizumi producing the title and Yoji Shinkawa handling character design. The concept behind the project is "No place to hide", and the new edition of the series will force Solid Snake into unexpected circumstances in an all-new storyline that breaks away in some ways from the previous MGS franchise entries. So well, this ones PS3's ONLY gun in the console wars, but i'm betting it'll end up on the 360 as well. Where did you think all the other PS3 exclusives went to??
No matter how main Snake is, Raiden here is the true badass load of coolness in MGS4
2. Assassin's Creed [PS3/Xbox 360]
Crappp i'm so gonna buy this 1. Even that short demo they let us see was amazing. The envrionment's so freakin interactive i can't take it. Really realistic too. One stab from an enemy n good bye. Good example of a PS3 exclusive going to the far superior (in quality games) 360. From the team that brought the world Prince of Persia and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell comes a sophisticated new franchise utilizing the power of next-gen technology for its complex action. The first game in the Assassin's Creed franchise is set in 1191 AD, when the Third Crusade was tearing the Holy Land apart. Shrouded in secrecy and feared for their ruthlessness, the Assassins intend to stop the hostilities by suppressing both sides of the conflict. Players, assuming the role of the main character Altair, will have the power to throw their immediate environment into chaos and to shape events during this pivotal moment in history. And you know what's the cool part?? The genius behind this 1s a girl!!! See ladies, you too can throw out the ownage in the area of games, its not much of a guys only thing anymore.
Whee i love this violence! A sword through a body?? This 1s mine.
1. Halo 3 [Xbox 360]
Well...BIG surprise here. If you thought anything else other than Halo 3, you're a total herb. You know what any game with the word HALO in its title can do right. The inpact it will have on society. Millions will lose sleep over H3. And even more people will spend hours queueing in line just to get their hands on H3 a few hours before everyone else, knowing that there'll still be plenty of em will be available for the next week or so after launch. Heck, i'll probably be one of the idiots in line at Funan the night before launch. But hey, the experience is worth it. I may not go out much, but within that 1 night, i'll probably meet more freinds than any of you ever will in your school life. You see, i know us gamers are always seen as outcasts by the society, and i know you guys all have the image that we're all stuck up guys without any friends. Well, guess what, you're wrong. Gaming freaking unites the world man. The mood that night will be electric. People who don't even know you will come up and you guys will just click. I know cuz i was at the H2 launch party. Whooo i'm gonna have an overflowing friends list on XBL after the H3 1. And yea. You'll be surprised at the amount of girls playing halo in s'pore alone, thats why i'm with the whole gamer girl idea. The epic saga continues with Halo 3, the hugely anticipated third chapter in the highly successful and critically acclaimed Halo franchise. Master Chief returns to finish the fight, bringing the epic conflict between the Covenant, the Flood, and the entire human race to a dramatic, pulse-pounding climax. Taking full advantage of the power of Xbox 360, Halo 3 expands on everything that has made the Halo franchise great, adding a wealth of graphical, technical and gameplay advancements, as well as offering a whole new level of online gameplay. After this, i'm wondering what else is worth looking forwards too....
SONY IS SO FREAKING DEAD!!!
No EGM this time, but something else thats interesting.
Last week, Activision announced it will sell three add-on packs for Marvel Ultimate Alliance, the best superhero game on any platform for now. These are a Heroes pack containing The Hulk, Cyclops, Nightcrawler and Hawkeye, a Villains pack including Venom, Magneto, Sabretooth and Doctor Doom, and a combined pack of both. All three packs will be available on Xbox Live Marketplace, Tuesday, April 10. The Hero Pack and Villain Pack will each be 500 Microsoft points ($6.25) and the Combined Hero and Villain Pack will be 800 Microsoft points ($10). Heroes and Villains gamer pic packs will also be available for 80 Microsoft points each ($1). From that list of characters there are some really cool buffs and awesome moves. Hulk can almost double in size so normal characters only come up to his waist and Venom grows tendrils and giant claws. Moves-wise they all have cool abilities, like Doom's "Doom Warp," which inflicts damage on everything around as it teleports him out of harm's way. Hawkeye also has a really visually exciting attack -- the "Ice Pick" -- where he jumps up in the air and blasts everything below him with his arrows. Ok....so this will pretty much conclude this troublesome post. Couldn't post it on time cuz i kept having problems with blogger.com, so i had to do many parts again and again. Ok....before you go, enjoy some screenshots of the DLC for Ulti Alliance:
Woah Venom...you're on the same team as Spidey? Forgot about eating his spleen already?
I am going to tear your balls out, you b****.
Woah...bad guys taking out bad guys.
Ewwww...Sabretooth? They couldn't put anyone more badass in, like the Juggernaut??
