Street fighter IV, please.


GTA IV, drek.

Starcraft II, feed for pigs.

The newest game that will shake the gaming universe at it core is the 1898 masterpiece War of the Worlds: The Game.

It was like I was saying to my brother; “My brotha’!” I says “The people don’t read anymore all they care about youtube and porn! I tell ya! I wish they come out with a game that will educate the masses!”

Well like a gift from Miyamoto I got my wish because one of my spies on the inside told me that this momentous game was in the works by a new developer called Rickroll’d super tech. Their C.E.O. promised “Not to let us down…” Now – Now; I know what you all are saying: “Not another alien shooter!” and I agree, but that’s the genius of this War of the Worlds: The Game; it’s not a shooter – it’s a simulator. That’s right; you take the role of the radio director who made the epic broadcast in 1938 who fooled the general populous into believing aliens have actually landed on earth. This time though you the power of 21st century technologies like computers and sound machines on your side. I’m not quite sure how that’s possible but I’m sure it will work after the beta. Anyway your goal to whip the world into such a frenzy over aliens that the earth with launch a preemptive strike against the ‘real’ red menace: Mars. White at the same time beat your radio competitors before they make the people forget about your fake invasion. This is a can’t miss game, so relevant in our times. Anywho… This game will be available for every system, ever made including ‘The Phantom’ which should make Phantom Entertainment happy because I’ve haven’t seen 3rd party (or any)games on that system yet. I’ll keep you all inform with any latest up dates and with any luck this game will come out… never.

Downloadable Content – Just when you think you’re done with a game

I’ll be honest with you all; I don’t really download anything extra for my games unless I have to; like new Halo 3 maps for my online multiplayer. After all when I beat a game I don’t need to spend extra money for a few new missions and maybe an extra item or two, plus good content is rare. Well I got to say I’m wrong on this one; the just downloaded (the pack adds 8 new characters to the game: 4 heroes and 4 villains) for Marvel Ultimate Alliance and it’s like playing a whole new game. the Heroes and Villains pack. While my brother took the new heroes (The Incredible Hulk, Cyclops, Nightcrawler and Hawkeye) I took the villains (Venom, Magneto, Dr. Doom and Sabretooth – Mwa ha ha!)

While the game was the same; it seemed to adjust itself to the new characters quite well. They even interacted with the set opponents like the normal characters would, impressive. I tell you there something about playing a villain that so enjoyable; using Magneto powers to throw people like rag dolls or slapping foes around with symbiote-powered Venom. Uh, my brother had fun too. As I finished playing M.U.A. for the moment I figured I tried another favorite game, ‘Overlord’ to see if it had any downloads to be had. Sure enough it did, quite a big bit too. No new characters, but much more content that extents the game that I truly liked but thought was too short. Ah life is good, and I don’t mind being wrong on this one if the good content keeps flowing like wine. Although such content is not free (mostly) so make sure your buying something you want; remember all that glitters is not gold.
