NINJA GAIDEN 2 DEMO IMPRESSIONS - Woot!!


Impressions:

1. You only get to pick the easiest setting....so I thought this game would be a walk in the park.

2. Around four or five guys jump me at the start of the game, and I'm surprised at how aggressive they are. I had to use block in most cases. They weren't able to kill me (since the game was in the Easiest setting) but I was surprised at the enemy AI's behavior. After having played DMC4 I totally didn't expect that.

3. I was all oooohs and aaaaahs at the 60 FPS frame rate! There were a few rare occasions that it dipped but I didn't care! BLOOD AND GUTS EVERYWHERE FTW OMG YEAH!

4. You can pick Japanese voice / English subs for the purists out there.

5. You can choose from VARIOUS WEAPONS in the DEMO! Oh man, I loved the scythe! Yesssss! And then later, you pick up a SPEAR and it's more awesome compared to the scythe!!!

6. I'm amazed at the quality of Ryu's animations and there seem to be a good variety of moves for an action game.

7. The graphics are incredible! Triple-A quality game, definitely.

8. The demo felt a bit longer than the usual demos and that's a great thing. It has enough content to make you want more.

The videos for this game don't do it justice. This is one -AWESOME- action/adventure game for the Xbox 360, you'll just know it the moment you try the demo. Definitely worth getting!

Now, if I can only figure out a way to fit both Ninja Gaiden 2 and Race Driver: Grid into my gaming budget.....once again, the eternal problem of xbox 360 gamers---we're just spoiled brats when it comes to the number of triple-A quality titles to play---there's just so many damn awesome games! Add this to the mountainous pile of quality titles...defintely worth it!!!!!!!!111111

Gamers based in the Philippines: How to get in Xbox Live

NOTE: This article has recently been updated (as of August 12, 2006). Singapore no longer lets you input '00000' as your zip code. Please see below for alternate zip codes.

So you're a Filipino living in the Philippines with a brand-spanking new Xbox 360. You've heard about all the wonderful stories on Xbox Live. You happen to have a pretty good broadband connection. One day, you try out the Xbox Live sign-up options on your 360, and you find out to your dismay that your country is NOT listed. What do you do?

Now, you can probably enjoy your 360 without live at all, but I have to tell you: YOU ARE MISSING OUT. As Peter Moore said in the recent MS Press Conference: "Having your 360 connected to Xbox Live is as vital as having your computer connected to the Internet".

He is so damned right.

I've been playing on Xbox Live for almost a year now (both on my original Xbox and the Xbox 360). Essentially I found out all of this with a little bit of research, a little…

Xbox One - System / Games general review

We picked up a [kinect-less] Xbox One a few weeks ago and have been putting it through its paces. Overall, right now I feel pretty good about this console. But I have to admit, the first experience of buying it is not very good. I'll go with the BAD news first. But do note that it isn't all bad news....

- The first time you bring it home, the console can't work without Internet. That's because it needs an absolutely-unoverrideable mandatory update. Basically, if you get this for your birthday and it's 7PM, expect to actually play games on it around a day or so later, depending on your internet speed.

- The first patch I got for it was around 800MB. This number might have changed by the time of this writing.

- All the launch games now have accumulated patches/updates over 16+ GB in size. Not just Dead Rising 3, which has been reported widely in the media. Even Forza 5.

- My internet at home is PLDT 3Mbps; managed to get all the updates pretty quickly....that's a…

E3 2015 Conferences from the Big Three - My thoughts

Microsoft:

- They get a lot of points from me for actually announcing games that will be out in 2015.
- The Backwards Compatibility update is a huge surprise that I absolutely did not expect. Having BC is difficult and expensive to do, but somehow MS managed to do it, which leads me to believe the solution they found is an inexpensive one if they've decided it's practical to do QA work for the Xbox 360s gigantic library of games and make them all work on the Xbox One. If it was too complicated or expensive they probably wouldn't have bothered. But since they did, I think we're going to see full BC some time soon for all games. It's only a matter of time.
- Halo 5 looked fantastic, but 343 has a lot of work to do to restore faith, after the horrific launch of the Halo Master Chief Collection. I think they can do it, and I'd imagine they're certainly motivated now. If they screw this one up....MS might reconsider forming a new team to handle the Halo franchis…
