So I was thinking the other day about how I have not gotten a new PS3 game lately. I went onto EB Games to see some cool games but they are $59.99. Now the game might be worth it but I am unsure. So I go and fire up the Playstation store and download the demo. Some demos are long while others are not. So then I say ok let me go to the local Blockbuster and rent the game. So after giving them almost $10.00 I have the full game for about 5 days. Now when I was a kid this was not bad cause I had no life. LOL. I have a family so I can only play after they go to bed. So when the game gets good I have to return it or pay a fee. It is frustrating.
So I decided to sign up for a service called Gamefly . They are like NetFlix but for games. So after the trial period it is $15.95 a month for the cheapest plan. You get the game and you keep it as long as you want. No worry about I have to stay up all night to play a game. Some games if you like them a lot you can buy that game for a reduced price then you pay from the game store. They have games for all the consoles, PS3, PS2, Xbox, Wii, Nintendo DS, etc… The only con I think I will run into is the more popular games might be hard to get, but heck even at a rental store you run into this problem. So I recommend signing up.
Well I just finished playing my first game of Madden 2010. I was shocked cause I thought the gang tackling would have happened all the time. The animations of the crowd got a little boring. I like that when a player fumbled you have to hit the keys to fight for the ball. I thought the defense was a little difficult. I am glad about that. They really slowed the game down which is ok I guess. One of the things I did not like was players were breaking tackles they were not capable of. Hope that gets fixed. One of the best things I like is the QB throwing motion. If you wait too long your arm might get batted or a sack. Tackling is awesome except the break tackle but other wise it is great. As of now I give this game an A grade.
So the other day I downloaded the demo of NCAA 2010 for the Playstation 3. Now I have not played a college football game in a very long time. I never liked that there was no player names. I realize that this is due to having to pay players for rights of the name. So enough of this lets get to the review. Basically with the demo they give you 4 quarters with 2 minutes each to either play as Florida or Oklahoma. When you start the game and you do the coin toss your are presented with an option on how you want to play. What I mean is you get to specify the type of call playing you are going to do for the series. The options you can choose from is aggressive, balanced, or conservative. You are prompted at the beginning of your series on offense or after a timeout is called. I think that this feature has changed the way to use timeouts. I remember for the longest time that all I used timeouts for was to stop the clock. Well I now have a different reason. My gameplan does not work and it needs to change. I like the assortment of plays to choose from. I think they are different from when you play a game like Madden. the gameplay is very evened out. It is not too hard to run or pass but it is not easy either. Defense is not too hard. It is not easy to intercept but man you can strip the ball very well. So lets get to the downfall of the game. You cannot intercept the ball. I mean even college guys who get the ball right in there hand intercept the ball. The crowd looks like a Nintendo crowd. EA really needs to get with that and fix it. The auto play calling, calls the same plays over and over again. There needs to be diversity here. Other than that it is a good college football game.
Well early this morning I finished the game on easy mode. Let me tell you that this was tuff. I am going to try the next difficulty level but I am not sure it is possible. The 2 ending levels were very difficult and I can only imagine on a hard level they will be worse
Yesterday a friend of mine let me borrow a games for the Playstation 3 called Uncharted Drake’s Fortune . Now I do realize that this game is not new but I will tell you my opinion about it has changed. When I first looked at this game I thought that this was Tomb Raider rebuilt. Well it kinda is but the graphics are better and so is the game play. I have not gotten far in the game but it is good as of now.
Controls are not that bad. I thought it was going to be tuff. Camera angles are pretty good but sometimes they are not that good. If you have not played this game it would be a good pickup or even a rental.
