Playing Games?

September 25, 2012 Leave a comment

Yes, I have been playing games. I know it’s been a while for any type of update here on Player 2 but I’m back to do a little chit chatting about what I’ve been playing and some of my impressions on them. In my last post I’ve said I was really excited about Darksiders 2. How did that turn out? What else have I been playing? Also, I’ll give some WiiU thoughts from a person who doesn’t like Nintendo really at all. Keep reading for one of my first updates in weeks.

Call of Duty Black Ops 2 First Multiplayer Trailer Revealed

The first game play trailer from Black Ops 2’s multiplayer is finally upon us. I don’t know why but these videos always pump me up. What can I say, I just love me some Call of Duty online action. Opening thoughts on the video are this; I can easily see myself rage throwing my controller over some of those kill streaks, but I’m excited to use them. Enjoy the madness below and let us know what you think. I personally can’t wait to get my hands on this.

Summer Gaming – A Kingdom of Boredom

The Walking Dead: Episode 2 – To chop or not to chop?

Here I am deep into the summer with one major problem. There  has been nothing of enjoyment to play. Honestly, it’s the time of the year where I seem to have the most free time, yet no games are out. I played the next chapter in The Walking Dead but beyond that its slim pickings. So, what I’ve been trying to do is play games which have been on awesome summer deals that I skipped over during the busier times. I’m going to talk about them, and mostly how I’m happy I didn’t pay full price because I simply cannot get into anything. It’s becoming frustrating, but I’ll give some impressions on things anyway.

Spec Ops: The Line Review

Spec Ops: The Line is a squad based third person shooter. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? How this game is different though is that it promises a much deeper story than your typical military shooter. Hard moral choices and the darker parts of warfare are what is supposed to set this game apart from the crop. How does this ambitious route on your typical military third person shooter play out? Spec Ops: The Line delivers on the promise of story, and provided an enjoyable gameplay experience with a new environment as well.

Max Payne 3 Review

Finally, a new Max Payne game is upon us. Sporting a new developer in Rockstar, taking over for Remedy, Max Payne comes into this current generation with great promise. I mean, Rockstar has made some of the greatest games I’ve played this generation. They had publishing duties on the first two games and now are fully in charge. Max Payne 3 definitely feels like a Rockstar game, with gritty and depressing themes all over it, but does it have what it takes to please old Max Payne fans while adhering to a new generation of gamer? Does this new dark direction for Max pay off?

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier Review

June 18, 2012 1 comment

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier is a third person tactical shooter from Ubisoft. It’s been almost six years now since a Ghost Recon game has been out. The original games on this generation of platforms provided great 3rd person gameplay with robust online offerings. Their graphics were spectacular at the time. They really showed what the Xbox 360 was made of both technically, and from an online perspective. So, how does the long awaited return play out?

Sony’s E3 Press Conference: The Best Is Yet To Come

According to Jack Tretton, I have been gaming for 17 years! Holy hell I’m old. Where has all that time gone? Anyway, I’ll move on before I get sidetracked and reminisce. As always, the PlayStation Press Conference opens up with Jack Tretton acknowledging the gamers and thanking them for their support. There are times where it seems he is reading from a script but there are times as well where he talks as he’s one of us and I always appreciate that from him.


The Press Conference opens up strong, with David Cage from Quantic Dreams attending the stage to discuss his teams new game, Beyond: Two Souls. Beyond will follow 15 years of Jodie’s life, allowing you to experience the life of a person who has the ability to see spirits. Jodie is played by the actress Ellen Page. Your actions and decisions will determine her fate as you engage in this emotional action thriller. Quantic Dream clearly believes there is an audience out there for adult gaming. With the release of Heavy Rain, and a first look of Beyond, I think they have proven their point.

Shortly after, Tretton talked about the PlayStation video “Michael”. As many of us guessed, the video was a teaser of what was to come, PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royal. SuperBot announced the title will be releasing for the PlayStation Vita as well, which will be cross compatible. What’s pretty neat about this, as they demonstrated, the Vita can be used as a controller to participate in this game. It wasn’t until I realized that I have 2 PS3 controllers that I now have a third! I have to say, I’m a bit disappointed. We didn’t see really anything new. We saw the same level and characters as it was first announced, with the addition of Nathan Drake, and Big Daddy. Don’t get me wrong, I’m looking forward to this title, but I felt they could have released a little more information. More characters, levels, or some footage on some characters attacks. Along with the announcement of cross play for PlayStation All-Stars: Batlle Royale, LittleBigPlanet 2 has been confirmed to receive a DLC that includes the cross play feature as well as additional costumes and levels.
