Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning Review

WOW, I never would have thought such a low profile game would be so awesome. After downloading the demo with only one incentive – to unlock an armor set in Mass Effect 3; I’d have to say this game has a lot of potential. What really impressed me about this game is how responsive the combat system is. There’s no delay and your character’s moves are very on point. On top of that, you have the freedom to decide whatever spec or hybrid build you want to pursue. This is similar to the talent tree in Skyrim where you can be an assassin with magic or a mage wielding a blade with a bow. To sum it all up, this game plays like a single player World of Warcraft (which really blows me away!). This game is definitely worth considering and I highly recommend it for anyone looking to expand their RPG playlist. I haven’t bought the retail copy yet. Still waiting for it to go on sale in the $40-20 range. I’ve been spending too much money lately on games and getting the new iPad 😦 If you’re not convinced by me, you guys can check out GameTrailer’s review.

Is Earth worth saving? Or should it fall into oblivion? Be the Judge of this Mass Effect 3 Review!

3.6.12 couldn’t be any sweeter. I picked up  my Collector’s Edition of Mass Effect 3 at Gamestop. Unfortunately, I also pre-ordered another game on the spot. I’ll be picking up a copy of Resident Evil Raccoon City as well later this month. Hopefully I will not be disappointed like Resident Evil 5! I couldn’t bear to play past the first boss fight. There was nothing exciting to look forward to.

But let’s move on with the good. Mass Effect 3’s marketing is quite effective. First came along the multiple trailers, pre-order bonuses with almost any type of purchases that was from Bioware, and then they sponsored commercial debuts during my FAVORITE TV show – The Walking Dead. EA and Bioware has done a remarkable job. Their marketing efforts have not gone to waste. Especially with their Space Edition copies if you know what I mean. After playing the demo 2 weeks before release, I was convinced that ME3 would not be a let down. If you don’t believe me, you can also check out the video review published by GameTrailers. There’s so much to look forward to if you’re a returning ME fan: meeting new characters, reuniting with familiar faces, rekindling romance, and best of all seeing all your choices/decision-making carry over since the first Mass Effect. What more could a fan want? Why of course – an epic final last stand for humanity and the galaxy. Need I say more? Just purchase the game if you played the first and second. If you haven’t indulged in the Mass Effect universe, I strongly suggest trying out the series. You will not be disappointed (unless you have no soul) 😉

By the way, if I haven’t been active on my blog it’s because I’m busy saving the galaxy from the Reapers.

Take Place in a Historical Era in the Upcoming Assassin’s Creed 3

The cat’s out of the bag guys. Assassin’s Creed 3 in the works and there’s a debut trailer to prove so. This time, the setting is vastly different. Sort of like how Mass Effect 3 is set at plain old planet Earth instead of some exotic planet somewhere in the distant galaxy. Some people may feel it’s a lack of creativity. Others may disagree and feel excited to relive some American history. AC3’s timeline is set right in the heated American Revolutionary war. Best of all, GameTrailers has done it again with their awesome pop-block trailer that gives you details you may have missed while enjoying the trailer. Feel free to let me know if you’re swayed by this debut trailer of AC3.

Prepare For the Return of Claptrap!

VAULT HUNTERS WANTED. It’s about time we received news around Borderlands 2. It seems like it’s been too long since we last heard any updates about this kick ass game. I’m dating as far back since PAX Prime 2011. But, I’m glad this time around we get an official date of when we can expect this awesome sequel to arrive. If you don’t really hear from me this fall, you’ll know that I’m out hunting for the vault in the world of Pandora 😉

Don’t forget to check out this awesome Doomsday trailer of Borderlands 2. What class are you going to play? I have my heart set on the new siren!

Debut of FemShep’s Mass Effect 3 Trailer

It’s official guys – the default FemShep has been revealed and this is her debut appearance in the new Mass Effect 3 trailer! As many of you can recall, her new look was based on the results of the Facebook polls (supposedly) voiced by fans of the series. Particularly by those who enjoy the female Shepard better than her male counterpart. Of course FemShep’s popularity isn’t based off her gender, but rather the voice actor behind her role – Jennifer Hale. Jennifer Hale is incredible and she makes the female Commander Shepard believable as a character and War Hero.

I’m really not sold into this new look. There was nothing wrong with the default appearance Bioware set for FemShep in the original Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2. I’m very disappointed with the direction they went with her appearance. I mean REALLY, does she have to be a true ginger with red hair and freckles? Worst part is that the red hair wasn’t the original victor of the pool. The blonde version was the one that yielded the most votes. Anyways, I’m keeping the my FemShep the way she is because she looks 5x better than the one Bioware ‘officially’ created.

The Darkness II Review HD

Are you ready to embrace the dark side in The Darkness II? Or is it a sequel you’re willing to pass up into the light? Some of you who tried out the demo on Steam might be anxiously awaiting for the release of this game for quite some time. Well, you guys can start ripping and tearing off limbs now for the simple enjoyment of mass destruction. I must admit, I really find cell shaded games quite charming. The comic book stylized animations makes some games unique like Borderlands. However, I think I’d rather cause mayhem in the apocalyptic wastelands in Borderlands 2 before purchasing my own copy of The Darkness II. This game looks like it would be absolutely worth while when purchased at least half price. I wouldn’t pay full price for this since the game yields no replay value or addicting multiplayer modes. Cast your judgment now by checking out GameTrailer’s review. You can decide whether or not you want to embrace the darkness or head straight towards the light.

Mass Effect 3 Voice Cast Trailer

Curious about the voice behind your favorite Mass Effect character? Check out this voice cast trailer in HD to see the actor behind your favorite ME personality. You’ll be in for a surprise, as the trailer introduces new cast members who will meet you in Mass Effect 3 as you take a stand to take back the galaxy once and for all. Jennifer Hale is simply amazing! Her voice acting for the female Commander Shepard contributes to why I really love and enjoy the entire Mass Effect series. Aside from her, my favorite squad mate would be Liara as she was there since the very beginning of the Reaper invasion. However, I can’t believe they cast Jessica Chobot as a character in this game. The modeling for her just looks awkward. She kind of comes off like Snookie from Jersey Shore. Same can be said about Freddie Prinze Jr’s character – Vega. Hopefully the game will be just as great even with the odd characters added.
