Gawd, I only slept for 5 hours -_-
Anyway, woke up and I still had to wait for my 360 (those bastards could've been here at 5 or 6, but NOOO, they had to wait until 11. LAZY BASTARDS!
So, I sat and played that all day. Obviously, being the moron that I am, I've already screwed up one of my discs pretty good. The thing has also frozen like 4 times already. I don't know if it's overheating or what. Other than that I LOVE IT. Downloading demos is awesome, the XBox Guide in games and such is cool. It's just plain cool.
To tell you the truth, I don't think the PS3 or Wii could actually beat it, but then I don't really consider it a competition anymore. The 360's been out for quite a while, so most everybody has one. The Wii's coming out next month or a couple hundred dollars (I believe $250USD) and then the PS3 is coming out probably 6-8 months later (I'm not sure; I haven't really been following it.)
Anyway, time for some opinions I guess.
BEAUTIFUL game. Really nicely done; great graphics, responds to input, nice features, TOO FUCKING SLOW. This game is a nice game, but I don't seem myself playing it until I get really bored of my other games (which won't happen; I never get bored of plowing through people or sniping with a pistol.)
I didn't really play that much of it though. From what I did play I gathered that it's similar, in gameplay, to Armored Core. The interface is confusing (especially when trying to assemble a HOUND.)
On the other hand, the in-mission interface is beatiful, easy to understand, and the two cameras are awesome (you get your main view and a smaller view, which can be switched back and forth between the cockpit and third-person.) Blowing stuff up is quite easy and fun.
All in all, if you've got patiences and you like mech-games, you'd probably like this game.
Awesome. I love the hotjumping feature; practically makes the game. nice variety of weapons. Nice difficulty level. I really don't have any problems with this one (other than my own retardedness; I keep accidentally hotjumping when I'm trying to reload.)
Of course, this is the disc that I fucked up. The 360 froze and I realized it was quite hot so I decided to stand it up just after I turned it back on. BAD IDEA. All of a sudden I heard the disc spinning in the tray and when I pulled it out it had a nice scratch going all the way around the disc -_-
My only complaint is I wish I was better at it. I don't like playing games online that I suck at because it handicaps the team I get stuck on. I don't have that problem on Halo 2 (but that's just because halo 2 is easy to own at), but I do at pretty much everything else (until I've had a good couple days to warm into it.) The only exception is Counter-Strike: Source; I suck at that game pretty much all the time.
You already have this game, so why are you reading my opinion of it?
Need For Speed: Most Wanted
I played this quite a while back. This game is awesome. I love just getting into a long ass pursuit. Can't wait to get the Carrera GT. This is also the first game I've been able to submit a code for (to gamefaqs.com.) I was putting in one of the codes (left, right, left, right, up, down, up, down) and I accidentally did it backwards (up, down, up, down, left, right, left, right) and got a bonus challenge (which is the Burger King Challenge, which gives you all of the Junkman parts to use in the quick-races and pvp.
Great game; buy it now.
Ninety Nine Nights Demo
This is a game similar in design to Dynasty Warriors. From what I saw of the demo, don't buy it for the storyline or voice acting; it's pretty crappy.
There are literally thousands of monsters on screen and it doesn't have that annoying "disappearing act" that the units in Dynasty Warriors had. In one battle I had a 2K hit combo within 3-5 seconds.
I'm contemplating buying this game or Enchanted Arms. This one has some nastalgic touch (Dynasty Warriors used to be me and my best-friend's favorite game before he became a loser), but hacking thousands of creatures to death by the second is more fun with 2 or 3 people.
I'm thinking I should go back to bed. But I'll probably feel like crap in the morning.
Edit: Also, mecovili finished another animation tutorial today. Check it out.
