Ugh mondays... I hate you so so very much. Just as I am adjusted to the lazyness the weekends bring by I find myself having to fall out of bed early and run in to work half asleep.
So this weekend was pretty busy with gaming, got to try some new games too....
I had my first experience playing with an Xbox360 with Kinekt. It was interesting to say the least. I was not expecting how well it tracks your body, its pretty neat. Played Kinect sports, which was fun but I had some trouble doing things right, maybe cause it was the first thing I tried. The soccer game on it was definitely my favorite, was a lot of fun to play multiplayer on it too. Boxing was a blast as well but again, maybe I was not punching the right way for the kinect to pick it up, but I kept getting my ass handed to me.
I also played Dance Central on the Kinect which was easily the best game I tried on it. Now I have to say I don't mix well with dancing at all, as a matter of fact I could say I had never really "danced" till this weekend lol.
It was a lot of fun, the game itself is pretty hard IMO, the game tracks your movements rather accurately and expects you to pull off dance moves just like the onscreen character. Multiplayer is great on this game too, plus the songs are catchy AND it has a large downloadable song catalog too... Looks like I might have to fix my RROD'd Xbox and get a Kinect sometime... great party game over all.
Kinect was fun and all but what really kept me busy this weekend was Dead Space 2. HOLY SHIT. I have never NOPE'd so hard in my life! Right from the beggining the game starts out being scary as F***. I really wish I could say more than that, but I refuse to even potentially spoil anything for anyone. Dead Space was awesome but Dead Space 2 is definitely a must-have. The graphics are really nice, everything in the game is really detailed. Environments are really moody and the monsters are much more varied than in the first game and really scary and harder to beat. The music is also great and very much moody. The multiplayer part was a lot of fun too, though it seems if you dont buy a new copy you have to pay some amount to be able to play... this to me is kind of... not so nice... but it didn't matter in my case. Did I mention the game is scary? Like really F'ing scary? Cause it is.... and finally... the scariest thing in the whole game?
Beware of the sun.... that is all.
