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.
Let’s make this clear right off, I adore this game. I do. So if you want to just cut to the chase and move on, yes I recommend this game. If you want to know why, or just want to learn more about the game then let’s do this. Be warned, there is a lot to cover here so sit back, relax, grab a drink and read on.
I didn’t even think twice about this game when it came out. I thought “Who cares?!” the first one had mixed reviews at best, why on earth is there another one? It wasn’t even a blip on my radar except for really enjoying the videos that Outside Xbox/Extra were putting out about it. I laughed at the videos, thought maybe it looked ok, if a bit boring and life went on.
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.
Stephen needed new studio lights and decided to start off by going cheap. Did he make a good choice? Julius Studio 160 LED lights tested.
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!
Let’s be honest, many Vita games that are born on the Vita never really make it much further in life. But Gravity Rush is different. Sony is releasing an HD version of Gravity rush on PS4 as well as making a full sequel to the game. The bad news? The sequel will be PS4 only, no Vita version of the sequel to the game that got it’s legs on the Vita. But I suppose that is not too surprising. It should also be noted that the game was originally going to be a PS3 title but was moved over to the Vita.
But this article isn’t about the sequel, no it’s about the original title released on February 9th, 2012. It is a third person action adventure game. You play the role of Kat, which is a very appropriate name given that you get your gravity bending powers from a little black cat that follows you around. Kat is a young, blonde and very spunky heroine that is found by the afore mentioned cat and given the power to basically ignore the standard rules of gravity. She also has a pretty mean kick.
Yup I bought it on last gen’s system seeing as I have yet to take the leap to an Xbox One. This game was actually going to be the one to force my hand to pick up an XBOne but once they announced it was coming to PS4 next year, and being released on 360 at the same time as the XBOne version, I decided to just pick up the 360 copy and wait for next year to get the “better” version. The PS4 version will likely include DLC and other stuff I’m sure.
So it’s not Day One. However these are still my first impressions of the game. The reason it’s not day one is because I needed to take an extra day to fully get my thoughts in line. My Fallout 4 experience began months ago where, as soon as I could, I pre-ordered a copy from Gamestop. Paid in full as I always do. Monday, November 9th rolled around and I was very excited to go to the midnight launch and pick up my copy so I could jump right in. I had to work the next day so I wanted to get some time in prior to that so I could start working on this piece.
