I really enjoyed Terminator Resistance for what it was. I’m also glad I got it during the recent Winter Sale on Steam for $29 as opposed to what I was going to do and get it on console at the full $60 price. Luckily it released on PC before it hit consoles, saving me some money, an important consideration when looking at Terminator Resistance. It’s currently 2020 and this game was released in late 2019. We have certain expectations for games now such as cutting edge graphics, high resolution textures and photo realistic human characters. Terminator Resistance has none of that. This game looks like it could have been released during the 360/PS3 generation, and had it been, it would have been a great looking game for that era.
Lets dive into the beginning minutes of this terrifying adventure.
Here it is! A look at Lego Star Wars The Force Awakens on PlayStation Vita. Hooray! #excited
Over this past weekend I made the decision to finally buy an Xbox One. I had kind of wanted one for a while. But I held back because there were only a handful of games I wanted for it. I didn’t want to buy a $300 console and then pay extra for just a few games.
That is until I read about the current Spring Bundle they have. I checked my local Gamestop and they had it in stock. I could not pass up the deal. For $299 I got a 1TB Xbox One, physical copies of Halo 5, Ultimate Gears of War and Rare Replay as well as a digital code for Ori and the Blind Forest. If it had been digital codes for all I would have passed but having most of those games as physical copies had me sold. Especially as they were bundled inside the box for only $299.
Let’s take a quick look at Dark Souls 3. Not a full review, I still have many, many hours left to put into this game before I can offer an intelligent review of it.
It’s no surprise I like this game. I’ve posted many boss fights with more to come as well as talked about my adoration for this game on Monday Vlog #4. I finally finished the game and am ready to talk about it. I may mention Dark Souls many times, not unlike other reviews, so get ready for that.
So why do I like this game? Simply put it takes just about everything that the Souls franchise does right and accurately translates that into a 2D action, platformer RPG. Right from the outset you can tell this is going to be a game that requires precision, great hand to eye coordination and lots of patience.
Thinking about buying a Vita but want to know more about it? Check this out! We got you covered. Here is an overview of the system, a few game recommendations, ones to avoid and my personal favorites.
We look at some bargains I got when shopping for new PSP games, a new game I imported a physical copy of and my adventures in a BIOS update failure.
Stephen looks at Earth Defense Force 2: Invaders from Planet Space on the PlayStation Vita. We dive in to the first two missions and see what it’s all about.
Fun fact: This is a port of the PSP/PS2 version that wasn’t originally available in the States. But take a look at us now!
Saints Row: The Third or, as I will refer to it from here on out, SR3 is the third game in the Saints Row series so it’s appropriately named. It is also the first game in the series that I played. I do own the first two games and have put time into them but they didn’t capture me like SR3 did, but that’s probably because SR3 feels like a complete departure. While the first two games felt, to me at least, like self-aware GTA clones with a sense of humor about themselves, SR3 is just a wacky open world game that is best experienced than explained.
Stephen digs into GUN and talks about why it’s one of his favorite games of all time.
