NEW BLOGS EVERY MONDAY AND FRIDAY
The place where I chat (moan) about all things gaming related and keep you up to date with what I'm up too.
Firstly my own reaction to the news in it's uncut unedited form http://youtu.be/lGiMoojE8V4
So I'm sitting at my PC desk I have Gamespot's live coverage of the Microsoft conference streaming not much is exciting me. Suddenly the screen glows a green hue and the letters KI are formed this is when I knew Killer Instinct was set to return. We were treated to a short 30 second trailer however just seeing those letters was enough to send me into a crazy frenzy screaming It can't be true the neighbors must think I'm a lunatic by now. I cared little surrounding their opinions of me however as the game I've waited nearly 20 years for is finally getting it's well deserved release.....on the Xbox One
My initial excitement slowly turned to dread as I realized the game was an exclusive on MS's new console. My thoughts turned to money, was I seriously going to spend more than £500 (console, game plus another controller) to enjoy an experience 20 years in the making? Damn right you are, says my inner 14 year old self, you gotta be joking says my 30 year old hardcore gamer pychy. To make matters incredibly worse the more I saw of the game the more I wanted to get my hands on it. Every new KI related video made me hunger more for it, and unquenchable thirst that simply would not be ignored.
Delving deeper into the core mechanics the developers Double Helix are really pushing to make it tournament worthy and casually appealing. Punishing turtle like play and balancing out the combo breaker system is pleasing to the ears of the hardcore tournament player. However alternate colors and costumes plus a comprehensive 1 player experience promise joys to the casual onlooker. The game certainly looks the par too with fully destructible stages fats flowing combat all in beautiful 1080p 60 fps.
At the moment I am in two minds as to what I should do, I love KI and the new game looks amazing however can I really spend that amount of money for one game? What would you guys do given the circumstances?
Not blogged for a while so thought it was high time I wrote one.
Had to walk down 15 flights of stairs this morning as the lifts were out...AGAIN and then had to walk up all 210 steps when I came back. Great workout I highly recommend it #sarcasm...
So whats been going on well I left the mighty Flea production company that I was a part of, a lot of things happened and people are asking me for the truth. Professionally I've given the normal I want to do other things excuse but personally the the truth is very different. I may speak about it at some time but right now I want to focus on the positives, there are many great games coming out soon and with E3 just round the corner well it's a great time to be a gamer.
Anything in particular you guys are looking forward to with E3? Any games or announcements?
I can't wait to see what the PS4 finally looks like, couldn't be much worse than the Xbox One that's for sure.
Then there is the whole Killer Instinct news, Rare's website now has a section for the fighting game but it's blank. My reasoning is we are going to get the original games on XBLA which I wouldn't mind at all to be honest. However I better not see Killer Instinct Kinect or Killer Instinct workout fantasia I may just put salt in Bill Gates coffee if that happens.
I'm loving those Rockstar energy drinks too at the moment, I know they are bad for me but I don't care when they taste so good. Why is it that the things that taste so good are so bad for your health?
That's all I can think of right now to talk about, hoping your all good and life is treating you all well
When Microsoft revealed the 21st of May as their showcase for the future of the entertainment medium I was excited by the prospect. Having been disappointed by Sony's offerings of sequels and pseudo Frankenstein controllers, I was hoping MS would offer something more...much more. Well we all saw the console which is more than what Sony did, however upon feasting it's rather bland 1980's vhs player styled design should they have showed it at all? A small part of me thought it was deliberate in an attempt to make the console look similar to those of old, those from my generation. Maybe they wanted to grab the attention of the Space Invaders elite?
If that was the intention then they failed as the new Xbox One (it's now official name) looked more akin to a set top box than a console with the same features enjoyed by that said medium. As I sit here a cool breeze gusting through the balcony doors and a refreshing Orange juice greets my lips I wonder if this is the future of gaming? The Xbox One reveal seemed nothing more than MS wanting to get into a territory already frequented by other companies who quite frankly have much more experience with the subject matter. Has MS decided to put the other entertainment mediums first and games second? Such a prospect is so bizzarre and non coherent I dread to think it.
Then there is the rather more alarming concern of used game fee's and one user per console mentality. Do MS honestly expect a married couple to both buy the same version of the same game so both can enjoy it on the same console? In another world it would be comedy gold the kind of content that Laurel and Hardy would use to captivate audiences worldwide. The worrying feeling however is that this situation is no joke and it's a nightmare that we will never awake from. No matter how one looks at it the reveal raised more questions than eyebrows and alerted the gaming world to some very serious questions.
