So in last little while I clocked Fable 3 and Deus Ex Human Revolution.

Fable 3

Awesome fun, including stealth,magic and swordplay in one game.

Play it at least once before you die.


New Deus Ex.

I love a game that caters to balls out action and stealth.

Plus I get to hack in game, I have loved this series from day one.

This new edition is awesome, some games play with light and dark.

But no other series plays with gray better than Deus Ex.

Let me scream quotes at you for a second –

The title has a great storyline, full of intrigue, back-stabbing, secret agendas, political struggles, and social commentary that is so powerful that it will surely overpower the free time of its players. It doesn’t matter what style of game you prefer — action, RPG, or tactical combat — since Deus Ex has enough of each of those to please even the most prejudiced user.

The quote to remember here is –

Wes: There is a line, Lilah, black and white, good and evil.
Lilah: Funny thing about black and white. You mix it together and you get grey. And it doesn’t matter how much white you try and put back in, you’re never gonna get anything but grey. ”

As with life that Imitates art, art Imitates life.

I enjoy all games that play with this idea, add in the crisis of what makes a human soul truly human and you sell me even without awesomeness. I love these games so much that I fell I should include 15 pages of supporting documents about what it means to be human. If you love this I seriously suggest that you look at the works of Willam Gibson. Any game that makes me feel like I live in a  dystopian underworld and suspends my disbelief longer than any movie has got close to, makes me want to scream it’s praises. But cast the character as a mercenary for a shadowy corporate organisation that used to be an ex cop who blew a mission who happens to be a freakin super cybernetic organism that kicks ass and i make a post about it.

Allright gamers stay sweet and stay gaming if you get a chance the new series of WCG gamer is on.  My tip has to go to raz, that dude might even be able to rival me (just kidding he’d be easy to take down).

Darksiders – Fun Personified

leave a comment »

So one of the other games I picked up was Darksiders, this action adventure game plays with the dark theme.

You are war, one four the horseman of the apocolypse who has broken the covenent between heaven and hell.

I’ve played through about an hour or so, I like the dark theme and also the combat system this game also lends itself to combos and kill scenes via one button push. Although I always err on the side of caution I just love the finishing moves crushing the head of a victim, or perhaps beating him into oblivion really gives you a satisfactory outcome after beating on a dude for a long time.

Also I have already picked up the sound of Mark Hamill and Phil LaMarr(yes i linked him cause i think you didn’t know), and I must say the voice acting is great all around.

I want to talk about the visuals for a second, the comic book crossed with manga influences are clear throughout and I just love it. This adds to the gritty and violent world created it feels like walking through a well painted picture.

One final note before I get back to playing there is some puzzle and jumping puzzle elements to the game but they draw you into the story more than just exist to frustrate you.
