After they hyped up fever dream that was Far Cry 3, I really had high hopes for the sequel to one of my favorite gaming experiences in recent memory. I was met with the mixed bag that is Far Cry 4, and somehow I'm not surprised that Ubisoft dropped the ball again...but not in the way they usually do.

Warning: This review contains mild spoilers. I've tried to keep it as vague as possible while discussing things in game, but this article may divulge too much information depending on how much you already know. This is your only warning!

The latest release from Electronic Arts and Bioware is finally here...and they probably should have waited a few more months! Mass Effect: Andromeda had a rocky review cycle, but as we know, some reviewers wouldn't know a good game if it bit them on the face and asked them to collect three parts of an encoded message. However, in this case, the reviewers were right.

Due to some craziness, I have not been able to write in a long time. But now im back with a vengeance!....or at least more blog posts!

First, let's take a look at some recent acquisitions! (I'll add pictures later...unless i get lazy)

EDIT: added pics of interesting stuff... /EDIT

Halo 4 collector's Edition! ~ expensive as butts.
Ninja Gaiden 2 ~ Free (Christmas)
Too Human ~ Free (Christmas)
Sacred 2 ~ Free (Christmas)

Mega Man 6 ~ 20$


Nintendo Power Bonus Tip Books for Super Mario 2 ~ Free!


Nintendo CodeBook / Strategy Guides ~ Free!


Pacman Fever Vinyl ~Free (Christmas)


Rick Astley "Never gonna give you up" Vinyl ~ 1$


It has been a little slow on the uptake here, at least as far as video games go. (it has been one hell of a year for board games though!)

In other news, I picked up a new job at our local video game/comic/collectable toy store, Level Up Entertainment (http://levelupentertainment.com/). If anyone is ever in the southern New Jersey area come stop by! So hopefully some scores / a tour of the store / posts about specialty stuff may be in order. Just as a preview, we have sealed copies of panzer dragoon saga , pokemon XD, star wars KOTOR 1 and 2...etc, that will go unbought since we lack many "collectors" in our area. Tons of classic toys and stuff too!

Lastly, as sort of a new years resolution, I intend to have a bit more game reviews, and scores posted this year...sorta a personal goal there.

until next time!

Posted under SGC, Xbox, Rage, Turtles

It's been a bit, but lets check out what got beaten since last time!

Rage



Rage was that game that had no real driving plot, but kept you playing anyway. Like really, no driving plot whatsoever...and the ending is just as bad. The game rocked though!

Most annoyingly out of any of the other quirky features was the massive voice actor cast...so much so that i couldn't talk to anyone without knowing where I had heard their voice before. Also, Steve Blum, if you are reading this....stop stalking my games....and change your damn voice once and a freaking while.

The visuals were breathtaking, and the gameplay was spot on....so much so that I wanna make a foam wingstick model.

My only other gripe is the car customization...none of it really felt different, although for a tacked on mini game, i guess i cant expect much.

Borderlands



Me and the girlfriend were busy here...beating every quest in the main game...then the DLC went on sale so we bought em all and have most of that done. This was just pure fun....although i had bought the DLC with the bank a lot sooner... so many good guns lost to the 0's and 1's of history >.Pokemon Snap



A really fun game, when my N64 would cooperate. Hated the inverted controls, and was a bit too short.

But does anyone else see the Wii U as a perfect opportunity to make Snap 2???


Turtles in Time



This was one hell of an afternoon....playing all morning and not quite making it, then convincing the gf to put borderlands down for a day and to come help....blamo, 45 min later it was done. Almost like contra in the way that it's significantly easier with a second competent person at the helm (speaking of which, Super C is just waiting this same occurrence). Not much to complain about here either, except that it's more money than turtles arcade, but less fun.


Star Wars: Rebel Assault II



Lets preface by saying I LOVE SW:RA for Sega CD. That said, RA2 was a bit of a letdown. The controls were sluggish, even compared to the original, and although first and third person modes were there...it still diddnt capture that magic of the first. Part of the problem may be the storyline, which just couldnt get me into it...



so where does that leave me?

Dungeons & Dragons: Heroes
Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne
Borderlands
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
Rage
Saints Row Diamond 2-Pack
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter
Legend of Zelda, The: Ocarina of Time
Pokmon Snap
Legend of Zelda, The: The Wind Waker
Metroid Prime
Double Dragon II: The Revenge
Faxanadu
Super C
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project
Donkey Kong Country
Star Fox
Super Mario World
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time
Pikmin
Punch-Out!!
Contra: Hard Corps
Sonic & Knuckles
Legend of Dragoon, The
Star Wars: Rebel Assault II
Bully
Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
Ace Combat 04 Shattered Skies


Lots of games done, still more to go!....I think a few games may get replaced due to lack of interest, or , since my family discovered the wii has netflix, console availability.

Till next time

Posted under SGC, Xbox, Starfox, MW3




Since writing 30 diffrent blogs seemed excessive, I decided to reduce my SGC updates to 1x a week....

and a busy week it was! Shortly after posting my rant about S&K (read it here: http://www.rfgeneration.c...2-Sonic-Knuckles-2169.php )
I finished Call of duty: MW3.

It was much longer than I had expected, although I wasn't expecting much. The action was great, and it was a worthwile wrap up to the storyline

Yesterday graced my tv with the completion of Starfox for the SNES....and I'm not too sure why I waited this long to play it.
The game was fun, exciting, and handled precicely. Can't complaign at all...except for the wacky end boss. Why in the hell is Andross a cube?

Oh well, small complaignts asside, I had a blast with both of these games.

Now to update the list

Dungeons & Dragons: Heroes
Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne
Borderlands [Game of the Year]
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
Rage [Anarchy Edition]
Saints Row Diamond 2-Pack
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter
Legend of Zelda, The: Ocarina of Time
Pokemon Snap
Legend of Zelda, The: The Wind Waker
Metroid Prime
Double Dragon II: The Revenge
Faxanadu
Super C
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project

four games down! woo! Working on Rage right now, and the gf to finish borderlands (just grabbed all the DLC too!..yay xbox deal of the week!)
About 12-13 game days into pikmin, and have half the parts. Don't even remember where I left off at in D&D.

Stuck on the last boss in punchout...curse you Mr.Sandman!!! Pokemon snap is on the volcano stage.


Till next time,
