Operation Racoon City is a mediocre game. Its biggest fault is that it wasted potential to freshen up the franchise. This isn’t to say that the game is unplayable or lacks any redeemable qualities. On the contrary, there are parts of the game that get it really right, which is why when the games faults stand out, it reminds you of the game it could have been, a better game. This is a huge franchise and mediocre should not be acceptable.
Well, September is upon us. My MMO Summer is officially over. And good ridance. Strangely enough I've decided to put my focus back into shooters for some odd reason. I'm not particularly fond or good at them, so things should be interesting. Also, since it's getting closer to Halloween, I'm going to dive into more horror themed games as well. So that is a preview of future blogs. Shooters & Horrors.
If you read my last post, you know I was having a bit of a problem with Operation Racoon City. Kicking off my Shooter&Horror themed blogs got started off in a real bad way. I actually finished the game and got past the hard part, but I'm too tired and confused to put a proper review together. I think some of you might appreciate if I did, as I would have enjoyed a warning/impression from this community before I dove in. Actually, it isn't all that bad. My impression is actually quite positive, despite some annoyances. You'll have to stay tuned to find out why I guess? I'm too tired to do it now.
I also jumped on the Silent Hill Vita bandwagon. I only ever played the demo, but really liked it and it was on my backlist. I'll be running for my life and beating things with blunt objects for a while. Also, adds to the Horror theme games I suppose.
If you wanted to know about the last MMO I was playing, it was Defiance. I actually don't think very much of it so I didn't bother to post a full impression of it. It's not bad, just OK. Actually, on PS3 it's pretty ugly and it kind of turned me off. Also, there were a lot of spongy enemies, that just absorbed ammo like mother fuckers, and it kind of annoyed me. Sometimes a few bros would lend a hand, mostly not. It's a very bro-y kind of a game. I like science fiction and military themes, but nope!
So that's that. What gaming plans do you all have for SeptOctNovDec?
Oh! I also need to finish up on Demon's Souls. So expect to see more posts on that. Probably beyond August.
