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?

Microsoft’s E3 Press Conference: A Pleasant Suprise, Even Without Many Surprises.

Coming into E3 this year expectations were low on what Microsoft had to show, if anything. They had few exclusive titles, and everyone expected them to concentrate on a couple of games, but primarily the Xbox 360 as a media device. Well surprise, surprise because they didn’t stray far from the expectations. Although no real large reveals came to fruition, Microsoft still managed to hold an impressive conference by showcasing many big titles, great new media functionality, and of course, some decent Kinect stuff as well.

The show started off with a bang. Halo 4 is what every core gamer came for, and boy did it deliver. It offered stunning visuals, new enemy types, and what seems to be another great iteration to the Halo series. This was followed up by a nice lengthy demo of the much anticipated new title in the Splinter Cell franchise, Splinter Cell: Blacklist. The latest stealth action game featuring the awesome Sam Fisher looks to take the game in an over-the-top killing spree. Sam seems as lethal as ever as he moved through an enemy base with ease using the games mark and shoot gameplay from the last Splinter Cell. Also accompanying the game is Kinect voice commands, allowing the player to distract guards and call in air strikes with their voice. The worst part of this demo (and a devastating loss for this long time Splinter Cell fan) is the loss of Michael Ironside as Sam Fisher, sad to see him go.
