What Santa brought me (Mini Game Review) – Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3

 

Ok, let’s move on to the most important Christmas gifts I got: the Games. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 has been called a copout, DLC bait, a waste of money and others I won’t repeat in mixed company. But don’t you believe it; this game is good. Sure the added characters could have been DLC to Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (as well as the new game mode: Heroes vs. Heralds); and yes some of the victory music is a little lackluster, and I’ll agree it basically is the same game people bought months prior. At the end of the day however it is an improved playing experience that gives players more characters, thus more options, to fine tune there style. Also the Heroes vs. Heralds mode is creative and adds a little strategy to the old brawling formula. Finally the game’s only $40.00 ($35.00 in some places), if you trade in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 you’ll be able to afford it, even in this month of tighten belts and tax returns. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is like your favorite food, familiar and the same, but it’s also has your favorite topping on it and your favorite drink come with it – making ‘what’s familiar and the same’ better.

 

 

 

 

Games & Gear of 2012 – Bioshock Infinite (10/16/2012)

 

I’ve always loved the Bioshock games; I like the 2nd one a little bit better only because you were able to play as a Prototype Big Daddy (never mind those nay sayers – it was awesome). The one thing I’ve never liked however is the whole underwater aspect; I mean I get why because of psychological tone it was trying to set up (trap in a place full of psycos and virtually no means of escape). But for me I like elbow room while trying to avoid the crazies and bringing down the daddies – well that won’t be a problem in their next game, Bioshock Infinite, because instead of the threat of drowning, one wrong step and you’ll be taking the express to terra firma. The story’s a little familiar but the setting and constant threat of the unknown is enough to get people excited – and if you’re still not, what’s wrong with you this is Bioshock we’re talking about here.
