Goldeneye Reloaded

Very excited for this game when I heard about it at E3 and let me say it doesn't disappoint one bit. This is the way that Goldeneye is meant to be played with that little extra. I was thinking it was going to be like when they released Perfect Dark in HD but it is not. The levels are redone and retouched so there will be no running through them if you are a Goldeneye master like me. Still keeps the same basis of the original level wise just added a few more secrets and fun grenade tossing sniper rifle fun. Multiplayer is everything you would want and more. I was finally glad to see somebody tinker and toy with the model that has become the basis really of what all multiplayer FPSs are built from.  But while Reloaded greatly deviates from its source material, lovers of the original will appreciate how the game plays with your expectations, making for some interesting takes on classic scenes. While it lacks the charm of the original and the polish of other modern shooters, overall you’ll find a great experience that was just a few tweaks away from being amazing. I give it 4 out of 5 unicorn poops.

Elderscrolls V : Skyrim

One of the most fully-realized, easily enjoyable, and utterly engrossing role-playing games ever made. This is what an RPG is all about. The visuals have been dramatically improved over the last Elder Scrolls game. Beautiful scenery makes the inclination to obsessively scour Skyrim's landscapes irresistible. Mountains shrouded in mist ring every tract of open field, forest and marsh. The Elder Scrolls series is known for along with beautiful visuals and a stirring soundtrack, playing Skyrim is a rare kind of intensely personal, deeply rewarding experience, and one of the best role-playing games yet produced. Despite the enormity of the world and the colossal amount of content contained within, little feels random and useless. Skyrim's land mass is absolutely stuffed with content and curiosities, making every step you take, even if it's through what seems like total wilderness, an exciting one, as something unexpected often lies just over the next ridge. Characters stereotype based on race, they double-cross at even the slightest hint it might be profitable, and they react to your evolving stature within the world. This is a world that rewards the obsessive and the adventurous, one where creative quest designs are the standard across primary and secondary storylines, not the exception. For such a complex game, Skyrim is surprisingly user-friendly. The Elder Scrolls' traditional leveling mechanics still apply. This game will be at the top of everyone's list for either christmas or game of the year. I give it a serious 5 out of 5 poops and to be honest...I'm not even going to wipe.


I will now take this time to say that I am still in the middle of my MW3 blog and it will be my only post. I play more and more and find more and more that I want to add. I will post in a couple days before my Halo 10th anniversary review and I review Kinect Sports season two and Dance Central 2. til then you know the drill. Oil the tinman and don't scare the lion cause Dorothy's aunt flo is in.
