More PlayStation 3 News...
I just watched a gameplay of the demo and I would have to say it looks pretty good. It reminds me of heavenly sword in an odd way...
Man that game looks gay as hell, lol...
Of course it is right it's not call of duty where is my gun wah Wah I want to shoot people for 5 or 6 hour straight in a stupid same repeating campaign mode instead of playing something new and creative and looks very cool which is el shaddai wow fps is really blinding kids or should I say fps garbage like cock of dooty.
theres no need for that mate.. not everyone is gonna like every style or game title. i didn't like this game but i had the jap version and played for 2 mins before turning it off. you may like it but i certainly don't!! i do love cod games and bf and kz..
Completed this game few days ago, it's not bad, especially all those paintings and unique design, but the huge cons is that you can possibly wield only 3 weapons...
Either way, if you interested in it, you should try it.
Heavy Rain is another title that is vastly different from other console games and it is an outstanding experience. Dragon Age 1/2 are really fun action based RPG games (Great storyline, no needless hours of grinding/farming either).
I mean c'mon look at this game. A guy wearing white flower pedal shaped shields on each arm with glowing red rings of fire floating at the tips of his hands? And look at the actual combat scenes. It looks like you just fight in an enclosed arena with a transparent ground or something.. it just looks weird.
I could be wrong about the game, but based on my past experiences playing games, I'm usually spot-on when I recognize a bad egg.
With all that said, even though I'm not a big fan of Call of Duty, I have to say that Call of Duty's online experience is probably one of the best FPS experiences. It was easy for me to get use to Black Ops even when I had never played another title in the series before. On top of that they are either the only, or one of the first/few titles to support online split-screen on the same console for a FPS game. As for the campaign mode, I really don't care for it.
if you did spend more then 1 hour with this game you would realize how cool it is. 3 main characters in this game are supposed to resemble bred pit, Michael jeckson and David bouvie. Its short its fun while it lasts, its never less then cool. I realise that not everyone like this kind of games but why do you feel need to make fun and to label people that like it as ghey that is just puzzling to me. You only showed how limited and simple you perception and intellectuality is.
i couldnt waste an hour on this. i am playing heavy rain now actually and its awesome game. can't wait to get catherine on ebay or somewhere as its not been released in australia yet.. there are far too many amazing games around to play something you don't like!!
Why would you do all this when you can just use the ebootfix tools on the USA copy and play as normal. All english and no need to patch anything else. Just use the ebootfix tools on the usa version and happy days.
