Fallout 3

One of the best game on XBOX 360. It reminds me a little bit of BioShock but I think BioShock copied Fallout’s concept since it was out way before BioShock was ever in the picture.

Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe

I have always been a big fan of mortal combat. My favorite character in the game is Sub Zero because I like how i can freeze my opponent’s ass whenever I want and inflict a lot of damage. And now, they’ve come out with a game where Sub Zero can now beat the shit out of Batman. I cannot wait to get my hands on this game…the two worlds are definitely colliding. Watch the trailer.

Eternal Sonata

Eternal Sonata (トラスティベル ~ショパンの夢~, Torasuti Beru Shopan no Yume?, Trusty Bell: Chopin’s Dream) is an original role-playing video game created by tri-Crescendo, one of the developers of Baten Kaitos and Baten Kaitos Origins. The Microsoft Xbox 360 version of the game was released on June 14, 2007 in Japan, September 17, 2007 in North America, and October 19, 2007 in Europe. The game will also be released for the Sony PlayStation 3 with additional content as Trusty Bell ~Chopin no Yume~ Reprise (トラスティベル ~ショパンの夢~ ルプリーズ) on September 18, 2008 in Japan, and a North American release will be available later in the fall. A European release is anticipated due to listings on various retailer and manufacturer websites, but no first-party information as to a EU release date has been published.

The game is centered around the romantic pianist and composer Frédéric Chopin, who died of tuberculosis at the age of 39. The story envisions a fictional world dreamed by Chopin during his last hours that is influenced by Chopin’s life and music, and in which he himself is a playable character, among others. The game features a selection of Chopin’s compositions played by pianist Stanislav Bunin, though most of the in-game music was composed by Motoi Sakuraba. The game’s battle system centers around musical elements and character-unique special attacks. Light and darkness plays a part in the appearance and abilities of enemies on the battlefield, as well as the types of magic that can be cast.

Moving Pictures is not moving for Rock Band

Rush, one of the more popular rock bands (some say they are the best), has an album, Moving Pictures, that was going to be available to Rock Band DLC. Fans were ecstatic but a little glitch has prevented the download from going live.

Making music on toy instruments is tough enough on its own, but that goes doubly so when players have nothing to strum along to. Rush fans have learned that the hard way this week, given that the promised full-album download of the prog-rock act’s 1981 record Moving Pictures did not make it onto the Xbox 360’s Rock Band store yesterday.
The good news is that Harmonix is aware of the issue. “Just so you know, we know that Rush’s Moving Pictures isn’t up yet,” said community manager Sean Baptiste on the developer’s official Web site. “There is a technical difficulty that is being worked out. I’ll alert you when it is all clear.” The bad news is that, as of press time, Harmonix had not established a time frame for when the DLC will be available.

Rush’s Moving Pictures is the latest full-album download to be added to the MTV Games-published rhythm title. The track pack, which includes such classic rock-radio staples as “Tom Sawyer” and “YYZ,” is expected to appear in the PlayStation 3 edition of the game tomorrow.

360 Elite

The XBox 360 Elite, confirmed?

What GameSpot heard: At the beginning of August, Ars Technica’s Opposable Thumbs blog predicted that Microsoft would be slashing the price of its three Xbox 360 models. According to the site’s mole–which accurately predicted the launch of the 60GB 360–the 120GB Elite would slip $50 to $399, the now-60GB Pro would fall $50 to $299, and the hard drive-less Arcade would slip $80 to $199. The last reduction would have the potential to upend the console race, as it would make the powerful 360 $50 cheaper than the best-selling $249 Nintendo Wii.

Today, game-blog Joystiq appears to have uncovered confirmation for one third of the price-cut theory. This evening, the site posted what it claims is a scan of a forthcoming promotional flyer for RadioShack, which began selling games late last year.

The game Too Human is inspired by the Norse Mythology and an action role playing game. Your character is Baldur and your mission is to protect the humans from a new machine race who kill humans for their body parts to create a new race. I am very keen to play this game and the trailer on my xbox 360 is done. *goes to watch it*

Soul Caliber 4

The game has been out for a while now and as such deserves a review. Story mode for the game is surprisingly short and disappointing. But the different characters and gameplay makes up for it.

The majority of the characters on Soulcalibur IV’s roster will also be familiar if you’re a fan of the series, though only around half of the 30-plus combatants are available at the outset, including Yoda on the Xbox 360 and Darth Vader on the PlayStation 3. Others are unlocked by defeating them in the single-player Story and Arcade modes, and by purchasing them with the gold that you’re awarded for winning fights. There’s more than enough variety on the roster to ensure that you can enjoy playing as at least a handful of different characters, and a robust customization system gives you the freedom both to edit their appearances and to create your own fighters from scratch.

Regardless of who you play as, Soulcalibur IV is accessible enough that even first-time players will have no trouble performing some powerful and great-looking moves. Rather than memorizing lengthy combo attacks and knowing how to attack your opponent, the challenge here comes from knowing when to attack, when to block, and when to sidestep around the arena. That’s not to say that the combatants in Soulcalibur IV don’t have impressively large repertoires of moves, because they do, it’s just that very few of them are tough to pull off.

Your goal in Soulcalibur IV, of course, is to defeat your opponent by depleting his or her health bar. Alternately, you can win by knocking your opponent out of the “ring,” which is possible in almost all of the game’s beautifully realized arenas. New to the series–though reminiscent of a feature in 1997’s Soul Blade–is the soul-gauge system, which appears alongside the health bar and changes color if you spend too much of your time blocking attacks and not retaliating with your own. When the gauge turns red and your health bar starts flashing, you’re just an attack or two away from entering a defenseless “soul crush” state, at which point your opponent can perform a one-hit-kill critical-finish move. It takes a long time for that to happen, so the soul gauge isn’t always an effective deterrent as far as overly defensive players are concerned, but it at least discourages online players from trying to score cheap victories simply by landing a couple of blows and then blocking until the time runs out.

Devil May Cry 4 – a short review

We were playing Devil May Cry 4 and thought it was quite good. Firstly the graphics were impressive and the characters flawless. Almost too flawless but isn’t all anime characters. Ladies with big boobs, men with flawless skin and asian features with blue eyes and blond hair. They are like the better version of harajuku girls and boys, or should say, they are the inspiration for the j-fashion culture.

The game started with a story and a beautiful female protagonist singing in a church-like establishment for a ceremony while the main character, Nero is seen running against time to catch her show. No doubt there is a romantic link between the two, the good girl + the bad boy, cliche but always a winner. The usual boy fancies girl but is too proud to show is extended throughout the movie – I personally dislike the whole courting theory but I may be a minority. So the game starts with the assassination of the master of ceremony, an old crusty guy in a vatican-like gear and a tall hat resembling the KKK, by an assassin who looks a lot like an older version of Nero. You will learn your skills here as the game integrates you into this moves.

At first, you are thrilled that you can hack and whack Cirque Du Soleil type of demons with wooden stilt legs, some are equipped with blades for a left/right foot. You can also shoot them with a gun. It almost never kills them unless you do your sword combos with. The good thing about the gun is that if you kill those demons with it, you will get green orbs that gives sustenance to your life and the red orbs which you can use to increase your skill. The graphics were excellent, the monuments and clips in between your games to tell the story is as real as Final Fantasy: The Spirit Within movie.

My only gripe with DMC 4 is that I find the battles to be a tad repetitive. And combat mode to be a little messy when you’re hacking more than 3 monsters/demons at the same time. Otherwise, it’s a pretty good game simply because you want to know its ending.

Rainbow Six Vegas 2

It is one of the best games ever. Life like and the physics of this game is rather impeccable. I really like the graphics and the two assistants that follows me on my back, they do shoot and cover for me :P Unlike some other games where they are just there for show.

PLay it, watch the trailer and then play it on your XBOX.
