Its been a while since I’ve reviewed a game, so many great games have been released since the beginning of 2013, I couldn’t find the time to sink myself into their worlds, sometimes I wish a day consists of 36 hours so I may finish all the stuff needed to be done. I couldnt resist getting my hands on Bioshock Infinite 2 weeks ago. Crysis 3, Dead Space 3 and Tomb Raider were calling me when I was buying Bioshock but I held my hands over my ears, I know I wont have time to play them all, I had to pull myself away running away from the voices in my head screaming Dead Spaaaaaaace :-p
Any way back to Bioshock its a first person shooter with an extraordinary story, if you are unfamiliar with the Bioshock series then your missing alot especially if you enjoy deep video game stories. The story is so mind twisting I dare you if you can stop thinking about it even when you turn off your console.
The story takes place in the state of Columbia not Rapture as the first 2 Bioshock games (if you played Bioshock 1&2 you will know Rapture) supposedly its 1920 with a steampunk theme. The visuals and graphics are amazing but the way they developed this steampunk era was more than amazing actually its mind blowing somehow I wish that that era really existed.
The story is so intriguing a weird BLEND :-p that would keep you looking for the truth and whats the reason behind all of this. Gameplay not as hard as previous Bioshock games you duel guns and magic plus Elizabeth will help you during battle, dont ask me who is Elizabeth you have to know that by yourself.
Now go buy Bioshock Im 100% sure that its gonna be 2013 game of the year, if you get the PS3 version i would highly recommend getting the included Bioshock 1 bonus.
Mario, of Super Mario Bros. was just a plumber , he ended up a hero. But fame don’t last more than a game time!
Look around you, we are surrounded by famous people here & there on different disciplines & majors. We “Kuwait” daily produce more celebrities than the oil barrels “a little Exaggeration”. Some do deserve the fame n some don’t, it’s a comparative judgment at the end of the day (for example: To me, Kim Kardashian do deserve it while Paris Hilton don’t) but this is just me & my opinion…. i know i know my example is not that relative to “our” so said celebrities but,,, it’s my post oo KAIFI! & i will illustrate more on the next post (Stay Tuned it would be Super troll post!)
What Do you Think?? enlighten me with more evil ideas folks!
As promised Im starting my list with my best games for 2012 especially coz some may spend the new year’s eve relaxing at home I thought maybe that would be the perfect post for some.
2012 was a good year for gaming in general, the Wii U & the the nintendo 3DS XL came out although I didnt buy any but still we dont have a console launch every year. As for gaming in general I couldn’t make up my mind on which game I should call game of the year every game in the list has something really unique to offer and may appeal to the majority of gamers, so lets start.
Best Third person shooter of the year
An epic saga that started 2 years ago ( if Im not mistaken) and it came into an end this year. The story is so deep you would live it, feel the characters emotions & feel the responsibility of your choices. Also the real thing that adds to this marvellous story is the choices you make through the game and those choices could alter the path of your journey & each choice carries its own burdens with it.
PS3 owners who didnt get a chance to play Mass Effect 1 can now buy the whole trilogy in one game set that was just released.
Best Role Playing Game
No need to play Boarderlands 1 to enjoy Boarderlands 2 I dont know how to describe it in one word but I would say its fun, hilarious story and awesome graphics. I cant help laughing on the characters dialogue while playing, although its a shooter game its an open world R.P.G in the same time you may spend endless hours enjoying it.
Best Stealth Game
I couldnt find a suitable category to fit this game in, its an R.P.G, first person & an open world but with a limited amount of freedom in the storyline but limitless amount of freedom in the way you may achieve your goals & objectives. The master mind behind this extraordinary game is Bethesda the same company that brought us Skyrim, Elders Scroll & Fallout. The minute I read their name on any game I know Im gonna have the best game experience ever. Dishonored is a new concept that falls into the Stealth category but in the same time the world Bethesda created is something you should not miss.
Best Xbox 360 Game
Although all the previous games are available on Xbox, PS3 & PC but Halo is an Xbox exclusive & a trademark by itself. To all the Halo fans I can guarantee to you that you wont be disappointed & to new comers you gotta experience it.
Best PC & MMO-RPG Game
A game that changed the way MMO were played, introduced new concepts in MMO’s gameplay & with no subscription fees required which is a huge advantage over other MMOs. Since its release in October I can not stop playing it & it never stopped to amaze me with its storyline, PvP gameplay & WvW gameplay. I could’ve easily chose Guild Wars 2 as the game of the year but its limited to PC gamers so choosing games from different platforms & genre was my best choice so you may choose what suite you best.
Hope you enjoyed my list & if i missed a game or you have a different opinion please share your thoughts in the comment section
Another new game trying to make its way to your addiction, well its not actually new its been released a few months ago after being one of the most successful games in Korea & Japan. If you are not the typical type of MMO player or even if you are a hardcore WOW you just have to have a look at this game.
TERA tries to redefines all MMO combat style making it more interesting and closer to console games while maintaining the the most important aspect of any good mmo, a unique user experience to each player. The visuals and graphics could be described as tremendously beautiful. Its an open fantasy world and unlike some cartoonish games out there TERA has a touch of reality to it.
So many aspects could be covered during this review but the most important one which makes TERA one of its kind is combat. It plays as a fighting game more than a boring mmo, you can not stand still and just press a button killing ur enemy you latterly have to dodge, stab, execute your special attack and know you enemy weakness. One wrong move and your dead as in all console fighting games you need to plan you attack and keep an eye on your enemy, whats really great about TERA that is can also be played using an Xbox controller to add some ease to new players or console gamers in general.
Unfortunately we can only play on Europe’s server and although i though it would be and not as fun as the American server but i glad to tell you that its full of players ( who speaks English so dont worry about language differences). Check out the video review below to get a good glimpse on TERA & click HERE for their official site.
P.S if you are interested on which character im playing, im a Castanic archer
If you are a gamer or either casual or hardcore you must’ve heard of Diablo III. Diablo 3 comes from the creator of the more than famous World Of Warcraft & of course Diablo 1&2. I wont talk much about the game but its something to look forward to especially coz its gonna be released in the upcoming few days.
So if you dont have any idea about Diablo or you are not excited yet you gotta watch the video below inorder to know what you might be missing
Zerg rush is a simple game to kill time & compete with friends. If you have some few minutes to spare at work or you needed a stress reliefer, try typing the words “zerg rush” into Google from the search engine’s homepage. Then a swarm of Os will eat all the information on your webpage. You would defend your “base” by fighting back with your mouse clicks.
You need to click like crazy on all the colored bubbles (“O”) that fall and are eating the text of the page. The goal is to kill all these bubbles with your mouse before they destroy the whole page.
From the makers of Demon Souls comes this marvelous dark gloomy game some people may consider it Demon Souls 2 but its not. If you haven’t played Demon Souls or heard about it well let me just tell you that Demon Souls WAS the Hardest game on Console & PC that of course till Dark Souls arrived, you can even find it on the package saying “Prepare to Die”.
Dark Souls is an open world dark & moody RPG game with a medevil them as you can see from the pics. You begin life as an undead body breaking free from a dark dungeon, wondering through the lands collecting souls & slashing demons and beasts along your way. The game as I mentioned before is really hard and you can not control it’s difficulty settings, basically as you go along slashing demons and collecting their souls if you die ( which gonna happen alot and alot ) you return back to the previous check point which is a bonfire and all the enemies you killed come back to life, you would have to make your way back the the place where you were killed to retrieve your souls & experience points and if you die along the way all your souls and experience points get lost forever.
The concept behind it is pretty hard and the number of enemies you are gonna face is endless. The game tests you patience and skills and it will punish you hard if you make a mistake, so don’t expect to walk around slashing enemies away, you have to plan your moves, study you enemy tactics & act upon that. This game will suck your soul & will keep you coming back for more if you are up for a good challenge and a tremendous amount of fun. I won’t deny that is pissed me off alot but really had alot of fun playing it.
I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a challenge or loves an RPG, coz if Skyrim was my favorite game of the year, Dark Souls will be my second.
