Slaves, Zombies and … Dildos?
Last week, I went to preview Enslaved at Namco Bandai’s office. The game was very enjoyable for the five chapters I managed to play through and I’m excited to get the full version in my hands. It’s a massive improvement from Heavenly Sword in terms of technology and playability and also just felt more intriguing to play. It’s a cinematic game that feels like the blockbuster it is trying to be. Obviously you can get my thoughts by clicking on that link and checking out my preview. Can’t wait to see people’s reaction to the game.
I also went out and played some Dead Rising 2 at the Empire Casino in Leicester Square, London. Apart from having my face smashed in (with the magic of make up) and getting my gamble on, I had a brief play of the game. To be honest, I’m not sure what to think. The game looks fun and any game with a dildo weapon can’t be terrible, can it? I just found its entertainment value dwindle after twenty minutes of play. I’m probably not the person they are marketing towards as the game will have you spending hours killing zombies in all sorts of outrageous ways. Unfortunately it’s just not my thing. Then again, the original Dead Rising wasn’t really my thing so maybe there is just something I’m missing from the whole experience? Who knows.
Apart from the events and unpacking in my new home, I’ve been enjoying the 2x multiplayer in Modern Warfare 2 and 25x multiplayer in Gears of War 2. I’ve forgotten how much I miss playing those games and that there really isn’t enough time in the day to kick back with each of them. One thing is for certain, you take any time out of a multiplayer game and you begin to suck. Thankfully, I’m still good with Modern Warfare 2 but GOW2… dear god help me. If you are up for some horde mode and have the DLC packs then let me know, a few of us are looking to do some of those horde achievements.
