Gears of War 2: Review

It's bloody great!

Mariaaaaaa....You've gotta see her!

Go and buy it. Oh and leave a Guitar Hero guitar plugged in. It's fucking great. Death by whammy bar.

Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix: Review

So, after waiting pretty much a year since it was announced and reading Sirlin's blog and generally nursing a "woody in my sweats" I downloaded this last night.

I didn't have much of a go but here's my review.

"Not as good as the Beta."

Mainly because I couldn't get a fucking game all night. Oh, and all my records from the Beta mysteriously vanished. Massive cunts.

Oh well, it looks pretty and seemed to play OK in one player. If it keeps up like this I'll have to find some real life friends to play against. Which means I'll need to start acting like a sociable human.

Aaaaah fuck it, I'll just wait til SFIV and the new King of Fighters instead.

Where the fuck is everybody?

Video Games Live 2008: Cosplay Extravaganza

I went along to Video Games Live 2008.

A brief review and synopsis would be along the lines of:

1st Half
1st game music montage: Great
Magical Sound Shower: Great
Mario bit: OK
Rest of the first half: OK
Wine in interval: Too Sweet

2nd Half
I can't do tjhis bit in bullets cos it was fucking weird. Imagine a big orchestra playing themes you don't know from JRPGs you don't give a shit about. Now combine that with an audience of fucking uber nerds whooping and hollering to pictures of fan art done by kids with a fucking pack of crayola.

Now imagine that every male in there, bar me and a few other sane people, were trying to conceal their Japanophile hard-ons. We left early as we didn't to be victims of a Final Fantasy bukkake.

It wasn't a complete waste though. There was also:

Now I'm not a massive fan of this at all but this was possibly the highlight of the show. It was some of the worst cosplay I've seen and I'm fucking gutted that I didn't take any photos.

The dude who won the competition was wearing a shop-bought master chief outfit. There were a load of Solid Snakes and somem more fucked up RPG shit that I couldn't give a toss about.

They made this look good.
